but i have......and was until it rrod'd after two weeks earlier this month
Yeah, who cares about 50 bucks a year? I cant understand how people who can afford a PS3 or 360 and game/perephials and accessories can complain about a lousy 50 bucks.
its the principle.....youre payin for features that have almost always been free
but its not worth the argument
Really? The first internet gaming service was Sega Channel and THAT wasnt free. Xbox live for the original xbox wasnt free. Online was free for PS2, but it was horrible. Enlighten me on all these other services that come for free? Actually, Sony is the only company offering a decent service for free, Nintendos services are terrible.
There is nothing unusual about charging for a service (period). These companies have to build and maintain servers, personally I think Sony is stupid for giving online service for free, but obviously this was a key marketing point for them.
I will however encourage you to list some companies other than Sony that offer free services to their customers?
It's a shame you could ONLY answer with the easiest answer. WOW is like 12 bucks a month, and that will start a trend for MMO games.
ahh i always say fuck it cause with my past 360 luck it will shit on me 2-3 months in and ill waste the rest of my money, i dont like fuckin with that, cheaper or not.
umm dog i just told you i switched cards because i havent put any money in that account in a long while and it finally ran out, meaning that $1 is costing me $35 for an overdraw, than $5 a day after if i didnt go an pay
so yeah, i am bitching about $1, i just paid $35 for no reason
get a job? why dont you get a bank account and stop using mommys?
Pay your fucking bills!
for some reason i prefer to play games without the comfort of another mans voice [look]
I play COD4 and sometimes put niggas on mute... plus i dont like when people be on that racist shit...
But when I run with the dudes I know we all got mics anyway... I dont care if randomgamerX2008 has a mic though...
that p2p experience is a lot better then the psn service....you can brag about dedicated servers all you want...360 games run better online even with the extended voice system and p2p play...
sony realizes they cant offer a system like xbox live without charging for it...thats why the new quor "magazine" will cost users money for demos and shit....they are basically seperating people who care about downloads and exclusive content to support the service they are providing.....you wont be getting those demos of big budget releases on time any more without paying for it
thats all good....but when i play cod4 and i find a good room with people who play the game tactically it helps that everyone has mics....everyone talks about where the enemy is...the game becomes more fun....if theres assholes i just mute them...its easy as that...on psn i dont even have the option because most people dont talk anyway....it feels primitive...it almost feels like im playing a pc game before voice clients were invented for gaming
paying monthly is a rip off man....much cheaper to pay yearly....
theres nothing tactical about COD4... unless you're playing search and destroy or something but even that is wait and shoot...
we do coordinate the airstrikes/radar but thats about it...
Yeah, my mic is unplugged 98 percent of the time. Once in a while I get in a room and I hear people playing with strategy and I break down and plug it in. Normally after that the host leaves or something...
Well obviously mufuckas aint really on no big strategy. All I play is headquarters. So if some dude runs in a room and gets shot the fuck up, he might tell the rest of the team where the dudes hiding.
pc is what i was talkin about to begin with.....50 bucks a month would be fine if there were dedicated servers....but theres not
they have no excuse to charge when theres already ads within the service
no.........cod4, for example.....always ran better for me over psn
and qore will stop NO demos from hittin psn...read the sony blog....payin subscribers fund their 'exclusive' content.....it's demos that wouldn't otherwise be available to anyone on psn period.....ill pay 3 bucks for any qore episode that comes with a beta key though
seriously. who buys one month at a time?
