What a Subscription Gets You in Final Fantasy XIV on PlayStation 4

100°
30w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens outlined what a subscription gets PS4 fans in Final Fantasy XIV on PlayStation 4 today.

All of the details are below, to quote: Today's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn post is especially interesting for those of you that have never played a subscription MMO before, as well as those of you who wonder if a monthly subscription is really for you.

When you buy a single-player game, the expectation is usually the same. Buy the game for the full price, and some DLC will follow. Final Fantasy XIV is fundamentally different, as it's an MMO that will run for years.

With Final Fantasy XIV, your subscription fee will guarantee you regular content updates throughout the lifetime of the game. The first update hit last December with Patch 2.1: A Realm Awoken, and we've just launched the feature site for [Register or Login to view links].

Just a few features (not even all) that will have been added to the original game with 2.1 and 2.2 updates:

• New Main Scenario Quests, continuing your story
• Two new raids
• Housing
• New Dungeons
• New Dungeon Hard Modes
• New primals to fight: Leviathan and Good King Moggle-Mog...

PSN to Get New Revenue From Paid Subscription Service in 2010

550°
257w 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?"
 

XBox 360's Facebook & Twitter Requires XBL Gold Subscription

550°
268w ago - At E3 Microsoft said that Xbox Live users would need to be Gold members (requiring an annual fee) to access Last.fm without paying for a Last.fm-specific subscription.

What Microsoft didn't mention, however, was that these limitations would extend to both Facebook and Twitter as well.

This news was buried in Microsoft's late night press release about the new Xbox 360 price adjustments. Here's what the press release says, to quote:

"Xbox LIVE Gold Membership will be required for Twitter and Facebook when they are available, and is required for Netflix. Games, media content and Netflix membership are sold separately; a hard drive is required for storage."

When Facebook and Twitter's Xbox Live extensions launch later this year, you'll need to be a paying subscriber to access the applications.

The press release doesn't get anymore specific than saying the social networking add-ons will arrive sometime "this fall," as Microsoft has said in the past.
