Sony confirms Premium PSN service


psnetwork

Yes folks, it’s coming! Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president Andrew House has confirmed their plans to introduce the often-rumored PSN pay-to-play service in a recent fan in question & answer post. According to House:

“I can assure you that the current PSN as you know it will remain a free service. It is something that our competitors don’t offer and something that shows our loyalty to the PlayStation Community. However, Kaz Hirai stated a few months ago that we were looking at a premium service to sit alongside the current free service and that objective has not changed. You’ll learn more about it very soon.”

And by “soon” he might mean as early as next month at E3. Stay tuned.

    Well, Wii online is free so one of Sony’s competitors does offer a free choice.

    E3 was soooo close and suddenly feels oh so far away. What will be included with the premium PSN service? Will we have an option to pay for several months in advance? What happens if you get one month and don’t pay the next? Does your license for PSX and minis get revoked? Can you at least keep the games and content you bought from the PSN with your PSN+ discount or does not renewing change things around?

    Hahaha oh Oly. I know , I know, too many question and no one can answer them at the moment. Still, these are my concerns regarding the service and the answer should be provided at E3.

    Wii has online? lol

    Sure we will have the option to pay several months in advance. Especially considering that Qore will probably be rolled into it.

    If you don’t pay…i’m sure you will not have access to premium content.

    And you will be able to keep the games you bought under any circumstance I’m sure.
