So if Sony charging for online is ownage does that mean the rats admit they've been getting owned 2 gens in a row and lining up for a third?

For only $60 a year i can look at ads and access multiplayer that is free everywhere else? Such a sweet deal.

lol wow MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR THE LEMMINGS

Lol, you guys are so freakin' insulting when it comes to this stuff that it amazes me that you then wave your fingers in Xbox owners' faces when they say they'll laugh when you have to pay too. People are not stupid for paying for XBL. They do it because they have to. The same as when you're on a toll road and you have to cough up the fee. You don't do it because you want to or because you're dumb but because you have to if you want to move forward. And when online play starts costing money on Playstation, and it will, you guys will pay up to.

no but that's not the issue the issue is that lems are predicting they're going to claim ownage if we have to pay like they do. No one's saying if sony charges we won't pay, we're saying how is it ownage that we're now in the same situation.

:lol: oh you're gonna be a fun one around E3

oh you mean when MS announces HALOGEARSFORZAFABLE 30 and when Nintendo announces Zelda, Mario, Luigi, and Pokemon five million. Yeah cant' wait. PS4 and PC are the only things worth looking forward to at e3

Oh, now you know there'll be surprises in store... There always is. Theres just so much to game now a days and I honestly believe that despite our mutual dedication to playing many many games, i think the general public may not hold that desire. I think if us gamers See ms kick of this gen with a poor showing of exclusive games we have every right to look elsewhere...

If there is a fee needed to play half my game then I wont buy it simple as that. I have no stake in the company so I don't care. I'd just go with a pc instead since both the new playstation and xbox are essentually pc's with locked down operating systems.

dude shut the hell up.  You don't need to worry about how or why I post seeing as you havn't tried to address anything I have said or the reason why I originally made my post. 

There is not fanboy sh!t in my post, I am just pointing out how mind numbingly stupid your fellow xbox fanboy posts are.  Are you here to join in the defense of this arguement or you just want to try to nitpick at my post while not really saying anything because I'm not a MS drone?

I don't care about your points or what you're argueing, i just find it hilarious to see you breakdown and post loads of fanboy tripe constantly. So i'm not in defense of any arguement just here for the lulz, of you and the new cow SuddenlySudden going ape shit over rumors.

Also not a lem, have you ever seem me raging like you two do over something someone said about MS (let alone a simple rumor), or have you ever seen me bashing any system?. No so stfu and keep raging buddy, keep the entertainment coming.

I wouldn't buy a PS4 if they did that.

#219 Posted by Karpetburnz (548 posts) -

It would only be ownage if XBL is free. If they both require a fee then it would be even. If you mean ownage towards the die hard fanboys who bashed XBL for paying for online, then I still wouldnt call it ownage. Lemmings can't claim ownage for something Microsoft has been doing from the start, and youre pretty much admiting that paying for multiplayer is a bad thing.

Would it be ownage to Lemmings if next gen Multiplatform games look identicle on both PS4 and the 720? I dont think so. It would only be ownage if multiplatform games look better on PS4 and worse on the 720.

#220 Posted by Blazed (2356 posts) -

I have been saying this all along "Sony will charge for online if ti was ever good enough to compete.". If Sony is smart enough they will have a free basic online service and then just cool stuff peopel are willingt o pay for.

I see lems are still in delusional butthurt mode over the fact that they feel alone at getting owned.

You guys act like Sony doesnt already get paid for PSN. And the things that are lacking such as party chat have nothing to do with money. Vita has party chat. The reason PSN is missing some features is because the console itself cannot support them. The biggest con of the PS3 is the lack of RAM.

Forgot PSN+. PS4 won't have problems with RAM, that's for sure. I don't mind paying a little monthly fee for a service I like. I already pay for netflix and dropbox.

Soooooooo much butt hurt over a hypothetical question. Cows are in true meltdown over nothing. Crying and screaming at lems over what might or might not happen.

If Sony does charge for online play, would it stop you from purchasing it?

To answer the TCs question, Sony charging for online play WOULD be the biggest ownage in SWs history. Not because Sony never said they would but because cows are ALWAYS giving lems grief that MS does.

Of course they make money or they'd charge for it. Sony doens't give ANYTHING away for free. PS1, PS2 and PS3 problems are proof of that.
#228 Posted by Dreamcast86 (270 posts) -
Sony charging money for online gaming is not a big issue compared to always online. Always online will probably ban used games anyway, and will add a bigger fee to not being able to buy used games, or they will use some activation fee.

Right. But a lot of the logic here is "They have to charge because they are losing money if they don't". Meanwhile there are things Sony is doing instead that Microsoft doesnt. I mentioned them early in this thread but unfortunatly they get ignored because facts never sit well in SW agendas. First thing is the Online Pass. On the Xbox, since a subscription is being paid, there is no pass required for first party games. Not that there are many of them anymore anyway. But for the couple that do release, they work whether the game is new or used. Sony on the other hand does require an Online Pass for the more recent first party games. While Microsoft makes no money off the preowned market for the first party, Sony does. The second thing is, Sony charges the developers for every GB of data you download. If you download a digital game or content item, not only is Sony getting their store cut but they get paid for the bandwidth used as well. They get 16 cents per GB which doesn't sound like much but if 1 million people download the same 1GB file, that's $160,000 on top of what they are already making off of it. There are also tens of millions of users meaning this little fee to the developer is paying them a fortune. In the case of free downloads like demos and free maps and items, the fee stands for the first 60 days. For paid downloads, the fee is forever. On Xbox Live, this is all free. The only thing they are being charged is a $40k fee for each patch which Sony does as well. Add in the Plus Subscription fees and all the otherwise dead games and content that are being purchased during the specisls and this is a pretty big cash cow going on. You also have to figure that because of free multiplayer and free apps, PSN is getting a lot more traffic to get sucked into this stuff than they would by making it a paid subscription. According to Forbes a couple years ago, half of all 360 consoles sold have not been taken online. It was also said that half of Microsofts money actually comes from sales on their marketplace.

Sony put money toward the development of games like Journey and Heavy Rain meanwhile M$ uses it to advertise Kinect and milk Halo. They might share 3rd party support but that's where the similarities end. Not to metion their online approch is completely different with one offering it for free and the other one forcing you to pay even to use Netflix (which is another paid service).

So how did the 360 end up with the better library?

You're right, their online approach is different. MS have innovated in that area, Sony have copied.

 

Where are the unique and innovative tittles like Journey, Heavy Rain, LBP, Valkyria Chronicles or the Goty winner Uncharted? Does the X360 even has an AAAAE? All the X360 has on those spreadsheets you guys always post are the Kinect tittles that somehow scored 8s, some first gen games that scored 8s in 2005 and some crappy indies no one cares about on XBL, so when you compare raw numbers the Xbox seems to have the better library but is just a illusion.  :)

On the online front Sony might have copied a thing or 2 but that doesn't change the fact that M$ are ripping you off and you have no argument against it. And PS+ is very good you know. :cool:

Lol innovative. No it does not, yet it has quite a lot more AAA, AA and A games which most definitely counts for more than one AAAA game that came out 5 years ago. Hardly any of the games are Kinect titles actually, and how can the games be crappy if they're scoring A+? Your argument doesn't make sense. Its like you're brushing off indie titles, yet you mention Journey for the PS3 lol. The hard facts are that the 360 provides more high quality games than the PS3 does.

So in your opinion, the XBL price isn't justified. Thats good to know. In my opinion, the PSN+ price isn't justified. Opinions eh ...

#241 Posted by Gue1 (9724 posts) -

[QUOTE="Miketheman83"][QUOTE="Murderstyle75"] Microsoft doesnt force anybody to pay for multiplayer. They offer a service and people decide with their wallets that it is worth the money.

Ok, so i buy, for example the last CoD and i wanna play on-line. I pay the same price i pay for the game on ps3, but i can't touch the multiplayer if i don't have gold  ?!? Try justifying this !

The 360 has not a better library you delusional Lem. Any real gamer would rather have the quality +variety of the PS3 library than the rehashes of a couple of franchises +kinect of the 360 library. Stop relying on numbers and look at the actual real world so that you can stop living in delusion.

"look at the actual real world" Very good piece of advice. I suggest you take it.

The amount of A, AA and AAA games that the 360 has that the PS3 doesn't do not equate to just rehashes and Kinect games. It appears you're the delusional one.

And how many of these games are still active? I mean how much would it suck buying a 3 to 7.5 year old critically acclaimed title only to find out there is not enough of community if any at all to still justify that AAA score. And some games don't even have online support anymore. Can we still use any of these titles in 2013 to offset all the Kinect focus if people can no longer play them or if it takes 20 minutes just to start one game?

You are grasping by assuming every game back then had tacked on MP.

But many of them did but had shitty campaigns if any at all. And others are no longer even in print meaning unless you want to lower yourself to Thrift Shop shopping, you are not buying them unless available digitally. And even then. There are some that are not even found at Gsmestop anymore and if they are, you have to pay this "Rare" price that is higher than the lastMSRP was. If somebody wants to sell them, Gamestop offers a dollar or two. The problem with most Lems is, they want to include every title on the list whether the multiplayer is active or not or whether the game is still even available for purchase.

Except during that brief little period commonly refereed to as the years 2005-2008 when lems were on top of the world and cows were on anti depressants.  Lems didn't start getting the short end until 2010.

Lems owned the first half of the gen.  Cows owned the 2nd.  With a little overlap in the middle.

But even then cows did the most crying by far.

I enjoyed and spent more time with crackdown than I did with the uncharted series combined... do you see where the issues with your logic take place? The only way to quantify the overall libraries is through the numbers... SOny has beaten MS over the past few years to which your point has credence (though sony lost 2012 pretty handily). There is no way to quantify personal tastes as fact and thus we use numbers.

[QUOTE="ImJESUS-PROam"][QUOTE="Murderstyle75"][QUOTE="ImJESUS-PROam"]I don't get this deal with charging for Live, if you buy games you usually don't have to pay or pay more than $10 at all. Most Platnium games, have a free 3 month membership and at times more if it's a big edition, inside. And when you use that you have gold and there are offers like 4 more months for $5 or you could buy another platnium game, get another 3+ month membership. I mean half the people on this board, even claiming to have 360's probably don't know anything about the 360 or don't own one, or buy games new day one for $60.

I probably know more about both Xbox consoles than anybody here. Most of those offers you speak of only apply to Silver members. Some of those cards only give you access to the game it came with. Now I don't pay for Xbox Live. I found a way not to. But I still don't agree with the fee anymore. And not everybody buys every game brand new at 60.00. Most games are just not that good. And what about people who generally only play a handful of titles or one particular title like Battlefield? Now they certainly already paid for Online when they activated or bought their Online Pass. They might have even rented a server from EA. they are also playing on EA's servers and using EA's stat tracking. Why in the hell should they pay Microsoft?

Dude the offers in the Box are for GOLD memberships for ANYONE. You have no idea what you are saying. I alsdo never said anything about getting them paying $60 I said Platnium labled games usually have those free gold months in them, not full priced. Again, most people on here either don;t own an Xbox or have no idea what the Xbox has. There is even a rewards program fro your gamerscores and such.

Which games still have a free Gold month? Any I have seen in years have either been 14 day trials or 48 hour trials. 30 day full trials are very scarce now and are being phased out. And not all these trials unlock the full features nor can they be used on an existing Gold account. The 14 day Halo code only unlocks access to Halo. http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/28/p/384457/1998664.aspx And the Rewards program sucks ass. The points are paid out by a company called ePrize located in Plesent Ridge MI and are almost worthless. Its the same company that does MyCokeRewards which people have had many problems with as well. If you don't use them in time, they expire. I just received a whopping 190 points for over $200 in purchases last month. How do I apply these points to a game when the remainder can only be purchased in packs of 400? I would have to spend well over $200 more just to purchase a $5 XBLA game. $500 for $5 back. Such a great deal. Meanwhile Sony has been giving people $10 just for spending $50.
