Rumor: PS4 to require premium subscription for 'most' online features

#1OMG_AIDSPosted 2/19/2013 11:49:50 PM
Apparently a reliable source reported a few rumors to Kotaku, one being that Sony will be taking after MS in regards to paying for online features

Orbis is also following the path first set by Xbox Live: our source says "most" of the PS4's online features will require a premium subscription to use. Sony's new online service will be called PlayStation World, our source says, replacing PlayStation Plus.

Hope, hope, hope this rumor is false. Thoughts?

here's the article;

That's a dumb move. If Sony launches first with a free service as good as Xbox LIVE then they'd have a massive advantage.

Quit posting Kotaku articles as fact.

They are by far one of the worst places to get news from on the net.

...."Rumor" as the first word in the title doesn't really imply fact, now does it? Reading comprehension, you has it.

The very first word in the title is "Rumor," are you blind or just stupid?

So, what's the problem? The PS3 requires premium subscription for 'most' online features.

Are you?

I don't mean to take sides, but it's a fact that it's posted as a rumor.

Sigh... Think before you type.

It's not you liking a game, it's you thinking it's so mainstream everyone played it.

While I don't doubt this, they better be able to give the same type of download speeds and such if they want to compete on that level. Really hoping this doesn't come true and they just stick with PS+.
