I have just read on N4G what you can exclusively get with a premium account and one of them is cross game voice chat. Obviously this means that this feature cant be used with a free account when it comes out.December 18, 2009 at 9:23 pm #53010Collbreast_23Member
that actually sucks big hairy donkey balls!!! but i guess people will start paying… i hope that sony will treat people that pay for it better too, like quicker updates and such.. that would make me feel more loved lol and make it feel like im getting my moneys worth because atm, i wouldnt ever pay for PSN, when it sucks!December 18, 2009 at 10:59 pm #53018
where can u find more info about psn updating to platinum accounts? and voice chat being a feature? i dont think itd be an extra feature for platinum users because im pretty sure that ud need to download a firmware update to get the new apps… so we'll have to wait and find outDecember 18, 2009 at 11:04 pm #53019
“SCE will further increase sales by offering users new entertainment through the combination of hardware, software, peripheral and PlayStation Network,” said Hirai (via Eurogamer). “Especially in the online area, we are studying the possibility of introducing a subscription model, offering premium content and services, in addition to the current free services.”
When asked for comment, Sony Computer Entertainment America stated they have nothing to officially announce at this time.
“We are looking into a variety of options but have nothing to announce at this point in time,” a SCEA spokesperson told IGN.
It's unlikely Sony would begin charging for online play such as Microsoft does with its Xbox Live service. This premium model would most likely center around additional video or game content, such as exclusive first-looks at trailers and demos.
there it isDecember 18, 2009 at 11:07 pm #53021NinjaMidgetMember
mmmmm, depends how much the premium is. It won't be worth it if it's just for cross game chat unless it's pretty cheap.December 18, 2009 at 11:08 pm #53022
you guys… theres nothing official yet. dont get all rowled upDecember 18, 2009 at 11:31 pm #53028Ratchet525Member
hope it doesnt happenDecember 19, 2009 at 12:28 am #53032xxKnightmarExxMember
Im with Ratchet on this one. PSN should stay with one account type and it should stay free…FOREVER!!!December 19, 2009 at 12:33 am #53035RogueAssassin6Member

you can find the “leaked” info on thesixthaxis.comDecember 19, 2009 at 1:05 am #53039

Be careful man! I'm after sharing info I found on N4G as well, and it usually turns out to be wrong.
Lets be realistic about one thing: Sony has ALWAYS been saying that current PSN will remain free. They are looking into ADDITIONAL premium services, but PSN as we know it will remain unchanged.
Beyond that, if we get cross game chat, I'd figure that it would be on free PSN. Think about it…what good is cross game chat if only the paying customers have it? So once again, everyone relax. The only confirmed info from sony is that PSN will remain free. Whatever those additional premium services are…no one knows yet.December 19, 2009 at 1:07 am #53040The GeneralMember
I don't like the idea of paying for services like this. You already pay enough for the system, you over pay for games (lets be honest, some games last 5-6 hours and cost $80 with tax), and now they want us to pay for other things on top of all that? It rubs me the wrong way.December 19, 2009 at 1:23 am #53043

Yeah, let's not get mad though til we find out what it is. Just check this link out
This is probably whats getting more rumors started, but IF this is what they'll be offering I'll probably pay for it. I've ALWAYS wanted the ability to have my saves backup online. Plus the whole “Try any PSN game for an hour” thing is amazing too! I don't know what “Tokens” are for, but apparently Sony filed a trademark a long time ago on something called “P.S. Thanks” Which may also be a rewards program for subscribers….oh yeah, and the free premium themes as well.
Anyways, all four of those items are even things people are not currently getting for paid xbox live subscriptions. You ever even check the crazy prices for premium xbox themes? (note: they are NOT even nice dynamic ones like we got!) You gotta admit if thats what they're offering it'll be worth something!December 19, 2009 at 1:32 am #53047The GeneralMember
The tokens thing is kind of interesting. I definitely want to learn more about this…
I could live without the rest though. I don't buy premium themes, never will. I think what everyone is looking for is cross-game chat, but I won't be paying for it if its a “pay-for-use” service, I'll just continue living without it as I've been doing since I started gaming I guess.December 19, 2009 at 1:46 am #53048
Yeah, Cross game chat is useless (in my opinion). I paid for 360's live for a few years and used it a couple times to try it, but it's a total waste for me.
For the premium themes for free – I want to get all the “Hot Chicks with the massive cans” themes! I'd get to have my girlfriend scowl at me everytime I turn my PS3 on. Thats right, I like to live dangerouslyDecember 19, 2009 at 11:22 am #53091Domba_carMember
I don't like the idea for paying, but Sony looses $40 for each PS3 Slim sold.
