Yeah, that would definitely be a good option for some people. Many people play casually and only get on every so often mainly to play online. So they probably aren't even taking advantage of all the free games. But from Sony's perspective, it's easier and more profitable to just charge everyone $50 a year, so I doubt it will ever happen.

If they did something like that, it would probably something for people that want to play online, but are not really interested in free games and whatnot

I don't see this ever happening looking back at gaming history. There is no incentive for Sony to do this either as the current system in place has been working well and sales are incredibly high.

The competition console (Xbone) is the same for charging MP. Their service is $60 with no other MP option, but they finally started rolling out free games recently at least to match Sony's initiatives. For the first 7 months on my Xbone, we didn't even get any free games but the XBL charge was still in full effect.

There would have to be a reason for Sony to consider this, like perhaps the competition doing it....which I honestly don't see them doing.

Would it be nice? Sure, but as of right now it's a fantasy.

No point in doing that when people have shown they're willing to pay $50. Xbox Live set the standard and now Sony's gonna rake in that dough.

My post got deleted...I blame glitches. I'll just sum up my longer post:

The competition's service is $60, so my fear is Sony could increase the price to $60, not the other way around.

No. Different console models and service just create confusion amongst consumers. I would say get Plus around the holidays if you do not want to pay full price for it. Sometimes Sony has sales for PS Plus throughout the year. Making a "silver" model would just be stupid since everything on the interface can pretty much anywhere. It would be dumb to go to a new feature only for the system to tell you cannot use it because you do not have a Plus account.
