    How will Sony respond?

    How do you think Sony will respond to Microsoft's announcement?

    I think free PSN for a year would really sway people

    I hope they will switch their stance and make basic online free, while putting everything else behind the PS+ paywall (though I guess the share button should stay as basic, since its on the controller).

    Gaikai is more than enough to make me want to get on PS+, but I just feel on principle I shouldn't have to do that for online play when I already own the $#@!ing title.

    The PS4 is a better value right now, even with the new developments, but this would make the gap much wider in my eyes.

    I don't think they have to.

    Yes, the Xbox One will be more successful now, but the PS4 is going to do well this generation, no doubt about it. Sony just needs to keep doing what they're doing.

    I think it would really happen if Microsoft took the Kinect 2 out and price it at same price of the PS4 at $399

    Yep. They just need to keep keeping on. They are on the right course with a snag here and there. But that is to be expected. If they keep up with this model of doing what is best for consumer then they don't need to respond.

    They don't need to. Sony said everything they wanted to say at E3, to the biggest audience. MS knew they $#@!ed up at E3 so released a note on their website. How many people outside of core gamers have even read it?

    Now that most crap is sorted out, both can go back to competing and adding features.

    They honestly don't need to do anything. Everything is great. PS+ for online play is ok with me as it gives tremendous value as a PS3, Vita and soon PS4 owner. If they do away with the perks like free games and such then it's time to act and demand free online or new perks

    Are you trying to imply people won't hear about it over the next 6 months?

    I agree with this. They can remove features that they are putting money behind for people that don't want to pay for online but basic online should be free.

    Pretty much every online store I buy from has sent me an email saying the Xbox One changed its policies. More people know about the change than you think.

    Sony doesn't need to. Also PS4 still has the 100 dollar price advantage.

    They don't really need to do anything at this point. They offer a more powerful machine for less than the xbone. A camera that is optional and is not required to be in an outlet at all. I can deal with needing ps plus for multiplayer. At this point the only thing MS has is the tv thing. I don't care about that. MS had to take away some features to my understanding in order to change things up on their system which I assume will be done through a patch. What is stopping them from adding a patch to a patch and slowly integrating things to what they want rather than hit it all full blown like they have tried to do at E3. Im already sold on ps4. Im not interested in the xbone. But to each their own.

    I just don't think Sony has anything to worry about The only thing at this point that MS can try for a selling point is the TV stuff. That's it. I wasn't impressed with the NFL stuff they showed. I just like watching some games I don't need or want all that other crap. I can watch the games on regular tv..and my tv isnt watching me back...to my knowledge.( need a confirmation from big brother first.)

    Not really sure if there is anything to respond to Xbox One announced the removal of all restrictions made it the same as what the PS4 does with no DRM, Used Games & no Online check-in

    Sony still giving you a $100 cheaper console than MS an still cheaper if you buy the PSEyecam w/ removable HDD & its more powerful than One an with the Kinect always on connected is still bugging users.

    Only way to respond is something out of the blue we not heard only thing I can think of right now.

    How will Sony respond?

    The $100 cheaper is actually a lot of difference. Specially for parents that want to get a console to their 8-10 year olds. And gaming kids is a massive demographic.

    $100 is almost 2 games, that is a big consideration.

    Just because PSN+ is charging for us to play MP online which is only a little as $5 a month, you wont buy it!! bit silly :/ you do have an option of offline that costs nothing or online play if you willing to pay nobody is forcing you to pay.

    They don't really have to. It was MS that needed to play catch-up.

    I guess it all depends. MS played catch up and sony played a bit of catch-up with the pay multi-player that was inevitable.

    They don't really have to, but you can bet there will be more reveals at Gamescom and TGS.
