Same as the 360. You pay more for less.

I have to say, unless you're playing online multiplayer extensively then Xbox Live isn't worth it. I've been without it for months now and haven't missed it. Shame that Sony is going to charge for it when PS4 rolls around.

Considering all the free stuff you get from being a PS Plus member, I wouldn't mind having it

And what again is better? Ps4 allows more recording of gameplay than the x1 according to reports. And why should I be charged to stream netflix through the x1? That makes no sense.

True, and it helps their profit because providing those games to be downloaded doesn't cost nearly as much as it will cost you per month. But it works out users because older, cheaper games they might want to try but not spend ANY money on can do that with PS Plus.

I wouldn't really get into all of that though, which is why I was hoping PS Plus would be an option on PS4. But oh well.

i would believe paying for a service in which doesn't get hacked and doesn't encounter errors like the ps3 did ALL the time when playing online is an advantage

You say that like the 360 was never hacked or experienced server issues. There were rumors of Live being hacked last month. GTFOHWTBS! and what errors has the ps3 encountered ALL the time? I haven't experienced any.

i would expect a server to have some issues. however ps3 was down for an entire month i find that unacceptable for something i am paying for regardless of them offering a free game as an apology. and the error i would come across on my ps3 was some random error occurred message which would keep me offline until i restarted the device so playing on line was pretty much impossible on the ps3 while i am yet to encounter not being able to play online with my 360

Never had that issue with either of my ps3s with paying online. And I think offering free games as well as ps+ for a year (which gives you more free games) is a great way to reward the customers for their inconvenience. Again you're acting like the 360 is perfect and doesn't have issues.

never said they were perfect just said i don't paying a fee for what i feel is better service. much like i would rather pay for a faster version of internet compared to using dial up where you can get free every month if you had the free disc aol used to give
