PlayStation Network set for monthly-fee?

Sony Asia hints at future subscription charges

Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) could be about to charge gamers a subscription fee to use the PlayStation Network. The proposal offering could see gamers charged a monthly fee in order to receive unlimited PlayStation Portable (PSP) and PSone game downloads, according to our sister site CVG.

The story originated from a Sony questionnaire in Asia which asked PlayStation gamers whether they’d be prepared to pay a monthly fee.

PSN vs Xbox Live

The PlayStation Network is currently a rather feeble service in comparison to the Microsoft’s mighty Xbox Live. SCE will have to significantly improve things if it wants gamers to pay for the privilege of using the PSN.    Luckily, paying for good service is something most gamers are prepared to do.



*sigh*  I told you so.
