265w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] has confirmed that Kaz Hirai stated the current PSN service will remain free, and subscriptions are only for "premium content and services."

Sony has revealed during their Media/Investor Conference that the PlayStation Network will be getting a new paid subscription service in 2010 alongside non-game content likely to include applications and videos.

According to their [Register or Login to view links] [PDF] a "new revenue stream from subscription" will be generated.

Although few other details exist at this time, the way it is worded sounds like it could possibly be a subscription similar to XBox live on its way to PSN.

To quote: "It is unclear what the new revenue stream subscription might be. Could it be similar to Qore, an optional service, or something more akin to Xbox Live Gold, which is a premium service required to play games online for the Xbox 360?"

That is quite a scary thought indeed, but I could see Sony doing that too.

I can almost bet a trillion dollars that is when they will include Cross Game Chat and it will be a part of the premium service.
