There is no way this can be true, i mean they are gonna make us pay for cross-game chat there would be major backlash for such a proposal and then the price is way to steep i could see a set price for a full year not a month-to-month plan.. that is crazy.
Yes it is a good idea because this is optional, but not required and those who do not like to buy a movie etc for sony that will not add to their profits.
As long as I don't have to pay to play, i really don't care..
Dude what a bunch of total BS!!! They are going to make me pay for a cloud service and a cross game chat. Stuff like that and more are free on Steam.
And bandwidth is bandwidth whether its being used via a PC or PS3. If steam can give us this and more for free then so can you Sony.... I'm not paying for a service that isn't even going to cost you anything. Its like charging me a month for air, screw that.
$10 a month.. they could atleast offer some better services, like more friends on friends list etc also they should bring back different OS's. They could also make a deal with SKY tv like xbox have, I think that would be good and would actuallly make people want to pay this price.
Instead of Sky (because MS now have a contract with them) they should try... Virgin Media?
$10 is pretty high considering the low amount of *things* you get.
10 dollars a month may not be bad for the premium gaming service, usualy sony is pretty good at sweetening the deal (look at Qore they are constantly giving away psn games/early demos/ beta keys)...
Now "IF" sony dose announce this "Premium Service" then i hope that it will come with a nice feature like inproved cross game clan support/the ability to host private clan servers for current games... (i've played CS for too long im useto playing on private servers with friends and clans)
