Do you think Sony will go the Xbox Live route on PS4

As in do you think Sony will now require a PS+ sub to play games online on PS4. Want to use Netflix or Amazon video, download new demos or videos, use the web browser or any other app you must have PS+ subscription.

Sony might have seen how much money MS made off of live and go with a similar model to them, but what do you think?

Only games worth playing online are sport games. Every other game people want to kill eachother with guns.

I seriously hope not, that model is complete BS.

Nope. Sony has a long Understanding of the Online community. Why pay to use something twice. Its like two bills for the same internet with Xbox live.

Couldn't blame them if they did though with how successful live is.

I figure that this "PSN plus" is just a test experiment. I fear that people are biting. I already decided that I'm not going to pay to get online next gen. Many 'Platinum' trophies will be lost.

Its not like I have a lot of those to begin with. Silvers for the win!!

I'm leaning towards no. I'm glad they don't btw. I can see almost as much outrage coming from that as the possibility of blocking used games.

Nope. Kaz even said PSN would always be free.

personally i hope not, but business wise, yes, if xbox live has proved anything, is that people dont mind getting ripped off and sony really need to stop being so nice and start ripping people off more.
PSVita no games?
