I'm starting to remember the days of the SEGA Megadrive quite fondly.
Put game in, play. What ever happened to "Keep it simple"?
This would be a good time to launch the Dreamcast 2 with the motto "It only plays games".

I fear for Sony here. The masses of information that will have to be passed around for the next generation are going to be a huge burden if relying on their already oversaturated infrastructure. I can see it being a bottle neck situation. Surely subscription play is a must to improve the infrastructure and provide the level of service gamers expect.

What's wrong with what you have at the minute, Sony? One massive advantage you have over Xbox is that PSN is FREE and if people want content then, understandably they can pay for it via PS+.

Keep it straightforward and don't cut any features if people don't want to pay.

This is just being daft now, copying Xbox live just to win people again. Just keep it the way it is!

But that's what they are suggesting; free basic, PS+ basic, then another level with Gaikai included and Netflix style unlimited streaming.

It works well for PS+ so I can't see why an extra level would work any differently.

    I don't mind, i'm used to paying for gold so coming into the ps4 and getting more then just being able to play online and services that's not available in my country shouldn't be a huge problem

    I would potentially pay if the packages were attractive, well-priced and clear. PS+ is a fantastic package and the only reason I haven't got it is because I've been too busy with other stuff to welcome more games.

    I agree. They should call the different tiers PSN, PS+ and PSĪ£ (as in sigma sum of all parts)

    I'll reserve judgement; if it saves me money by not having to pay for the gaikai backwards compatibility stuff than I can't see a complaint in that (aslong as they keep most of the online functionality free to use).
