I already pay for playstation plus its like 75% cheaper than xbox live (i think im not sure) but you get things like cloud storage and like 100$ in free games every month and its not like sony is forcing you to pay you dont need subscription to use netflix unlike xbox soo i dont see why people care you pay 50$ a year for hundreds of dollars of free games i own all the consoles out on the market right now and pc and enjoy them all
but im gonna pass on xbox one ps4 all the way

I don't get why he's acting like this is a secret they're hiding this info was coming out from all the other announcements and frankly $50 a year isn't too much for a gamer and you get 5 free fuqing games EACH MONTH.

Xbox still costs more and if you don't play on line then you still have to have it to watch Netflix. PS4 is not going to FORCE you to pay to watch Netflix.

If this is the only complaint, then SONY did the unthinkable and actually exceeded all expectations except for a few nit picking dighks.

Here's a vid of the CEO talking about it. And frankly it makes sense. Start video at 4:20.

I already pay for internet service why would I give a console company another sub fee for something I already pay for. They're both being scumballs Microshaft even more so this time.

I used to enjoy reading Maddox' posts. He came across abrasive, but intelligent. Watching this video and I'm not nearly as impressed...

But then what do I know of current console gaming? I'm still on a PS2...Never felt the rush to upgrade, and I certainly don't now. I agree tho that's its sad that people are constantly being hit up every which way the companies can think of. A person shouldn't have to pay more than once for what is essentially the same service. But then don't PC gamers often have to pay monthly fees for access to MMORPG's? Either case it needs to stop. One of the drawbacks to this digital realm we live in is quite possibly the definition of what constitutes separate services. How many people have payed an ATM fee to find themselves paying an additional fee at their own bank?

You are VERY special, and you should get your game unit for much cheaper, because you are Special. Yes, that is sarcasm. ifacto is right, they are there to make money, YOU, are just a faceless Dollar sign. But don't forget, you still have the power to say NO. For me, this time it's NO, that is too much money for something is not bettering my life. If we all show no interest in this new expensive system, in a year they will want to give it away, that is what I propose, sending the massage that it's not what WE want, and it's too costly.

He should get a job - his internet fame time is long gone. It's just embarrassing at this point.

EXACTLY!! That's what I've been trying to tell console fanboys all week. SONY are arrogant enough to charge me money for internet. This was the main reason I went PS3 and not XBOX360.

All any of the console manufacturers care about is making money and they don't care how much they piss off the consumer. They know that people will buy their crap no matter what.

Sorry to say they didn't sneak it they clearly said it in the press conference that it was required. And with the free stuff you get from psn plus its>>>>xbox live gold. And xbox is charging the same (as in 499 for all)just like sony and that is because of import taxes and other fees that it takes to export it to their country. This is quite common.

I used to read Maddox when I was 15. Now I'm about to hit 30 and he's still trying to talk to me like I'm 15. Meh.

I don't remember people complaining about paying for Xbox live. (I could be wrong on this)

Why complain to pay for multiplayer on PSN?
Plus, from what I've heard/read, you only need PSPlus to play multiplayer online. It has no effect on Netflix stream, downloading content, etc.

If Sony continues to provide free games to play for the month and improves their servers, I won't mind paying $5 a month for the service.

either this guy is a troll or he's stupid as all hell.

the news about PS4 charging for online is, at best, a few weeks old. there was no "under the radar". also cheaper is cheaper. even with out currency being worth less here in the states it goes the same way for the XBOne. $600 here and even more there. im not even going to talk about his choice of games...

I will never buy either of these systems, but the whole pay for multiplayer is only 4-6$ a month. That includes all bonus's(demo's, discount's, free games, etc) which is same price as xbox live. So in the end, ps4 still wins even in the cost to play aspect.
