    I wonder if this will mean different subscription content for different regions, being that we get ****ed up the arse in NZ with content and lack of it aside from a few avatars and themes and the occasional demo they better up their content availability with the increased cost of the platinum subscriptions.

    They should have 4 because what if i want all the streaming/recording stuff but not the PS+ stuff?

    Sliver = Free
    Gold = All the streaming/recording and Gaikai stuff ($30 a year)
    Platinum = PS+ ($40 a year)
    Diamond = Gold + Platinum ($60 a year)

    While we can't say this wasn't coming (they do have to maintain the infrastructure for all these new features) I just hope they go about it the right way.

    As long as online play is free, they can charge for the various optional features.

    PSN+ is the best online subscription I've ever had, so will trust Sony to make the right choices.

    I like what you have there, but you only need 3, unlike xBox free stuff isn't glorified, its simply an account with online play.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    Why do you all want to pay for stuff that should be free?! If Sony wants to advertise features to sell consoles, then they need to be free. For those that are saying that the recording / spectating should be included in a silver package; There is a share button on the controller... we shouldn't have to pay to use a button.

    As I think it should be:

    No subscription (free). Well not really, you pay for the console and its features.
    -Online Gaming
    -Cross-game chat
    -All features of the OS including community centre and sharing/ spectating etc*
    *This doesn't need to include features that are not neccessary (automatic updates etc)

    Silver subsription
    Basic level content or low use for services such as gaikai and movies

    Gold subscription
    Medium level content or medium use for services such as gaikai and movies

    Platinum subscription
    High Level content or high use for services such as gaikai and movies

    In other words, you pay for content... Which is completely reasonable.

    Yes it's reasonable. So basically a tiered version of PS+... then in that case why even bother?

    To give people choice-
    Got Kids? Can only play 10 hours a month? Go for silver.
    A recluse? play for 200 hours a month? Go for platinum.

    I've never paid for PS+ but I can only compare it to my LOVEfilm subscription where you pay for what suits you. I pay 8 a month to watch as many blu-rays as i can. Some people want to pay 3 a month to watch two a month.

    Are you calling me easy?

    Anyways, I like this idea. The more money, the better the service.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    To be fair if the service meets the expected and includes some form of streaming games,then sure I would pay for it

    This i hope does not happen, because it means higher charges for those that want to get great stuff
    No, it doesn't. It means more funding for them to be able to bring the 'great stuff' you elude to. It's the right approach in my opinion.

    I would easily pay that for all those features at the prices you stated but I think they will be higher though. But i hope its along those lines. Would be awesome if so. I think a lot of the price factor relies on how streaming is setup. If it's unlimited I think it will be around 80 or so for platinum. But it's all reliant on how Sony sees a competitive pricing structure for those services.

    I guess party chat would be the same thing...just that they'd have to set it up where people should be able to join in as they please.
    I was just mentioning those two as examples. But, I wouldn't miss those features if they weren't part of the free package. Although, being able to upload/share video is an awesome feature which would get me to subscribe (I am assuming that would be a subscriber feature.)

    It would be kind of dumb to put the share button on the controller if you couldn't use it unless you're a sub. Just my thoughts.

    I wouldn't mind sharing but I'd never use it.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    Though I can understand why they want that there...it's just simpler that way and there's a lot of newbs out there.

    I just hope they let us reprogram that, otherwise it would irritate me because I'm a perfectionist...and it would've been nice if they didn't write "share" on it but then again, remember, the newbs.

    and we get to suffer. but i guess there wouldn't be a console without them.

    That's true but they're also a huge part of it.

    We are the reason for new technology, they're the reason for profits on them.

    Trust me, MS is not going to get kicked to the backside. They have some of the most talented engineers on the planet. They know Xbox is the key to entertainment...I'm sure they've ramped up since the reveal.

    They don't want to lose the momentum from last generation.

    TBF, EVERY online store apart from Steam, costs way too much...

    And with the rest of that, even though I don't like no recharging cable (not too big of a deal, but PS3 style of charge is nice) and all the others - the main thing for MS is that people are continuing to pay.

    So not likely for them to be stopping anytime soon with that.
