    Extra content for games wont be free in the EU

    A falta de un intenso mes de emociones para la llegada de PlayStation 3 en nuestro territorio, se acaban de anunciar, ahora, los precios de los juegos de PS3, tanto los "normales" como los de PlayStation Network. Así pues, los juegos que saldrán junto a PS3, como F1 Championship Edition, Motorstorm, Resistance Fall of a Man, Genji y Ridge Racer podrán adquirirse a un precio recomendado de 59,99€.

    También ha anunciado Sony que desde PlayStation Network podremos conseguir, a un precio muy reducido (más o menos 1€) nuevos ítems para nuestros juegos o hasta trailers de los siguientes videojuegos que saldrán para PS3.
    Summary:
    Price for the regular games (bought in a regular store) will be of 59euros (78$).
    And that from the regular store you will be able to buy extra items for your character or even trailers for the upcomming games for PS3 for around 1 euro.
    I've seen people arguing if new stuff would be free, seems like in the European Union won't be free, and they will have to pay for extra features or trailers.
    (If someone else posted it, sorry!)

    Así pues, David Reeves, Presidente y Director General de SCEE dice "Será completamente gratuito registrarse en PlayStation Network, sin cargos de suscripción, y descargarse demos gratuitas.
    ¿Cual es tu punto?

    Summary:
    What is your point?..

    As I read it, it says that the extra items for games would cost as little as 1 Euro. It doesn't say anything about paying for the trailers, it just says that they will be available. The 1 Euro price is for the items, not the trailers.

    You forgot to quote where it says that the demos are going to be free. I quoted it for you and I even bolded it so you won't miss it again.

    It doesnt say anything about paying for trailers. It basically says there will be cheap additional content but doesn't mention anything about charging for the usual freebies.

    In fact, I distinctly recall reading an article stating that GT:HD would be a FREE download in the PAL store.

    $78?! That's a little steep.
    Even with the $60 price tag in the U.S, I still find most/all mine on E-bay for cheaper from unlucky sellers.

    OH OH!! CAN I say it?>!! PWNED!!

    debunked, lets lock this thread, its useless. Euro game prices will be 39.99 pounds, at least games from Sony, and online goodies will be free unless noted. So demo's, movie trailers, game trailers, online playability will be free like it is in North America and Japan.

    This thread confuses and scares me.

    Sounds like they are charging for additional content which is pretty much the norm.

    They're going to charge for additional game content in N/A as well. There just isn't a game out there such as Oblivion that's doing it yet. Demo's and trailers will still be free. It wouldn't make sense to charge one area and not another. If they charged for Demos and Trailers here we'd just all get Japanese accounts. Problem solved.

    First in the article they said they will charge about 1 euro for some new items

    for games and demos . Then at the end the main guy from Sony said they will be

    free. Seems very confusing.

    No, no, no...

    You are confused

    My native language is Spanish and I can tell you that nowhere in the article it says that they will charge for trailers or demos. They say that they will charge for extra items (as everywhere else) and they also mention in that same sentence that there will also be trailers available. People are just confusing the wording of that sentence.

    También ha anunciado Sony que desde PlayStation Network podremos conseguir, a un precio muy reducido (más o menos 1€) nuevos ítems para nuestros juegos o hasta trailers de los siguientes videojuegos que saldrán para PS3.
    It literally translates to: "Also, Sony has announced that from the PlayStation Network we could get, at a reduced price (1€ more or less) new items for our games or even trailers from the upcoming videogames that will come out for PS3"
    The "reduced price" part is refering to just the extra items for the games and not the trailers or demos. I can see why people would be confused but if you look closely, you can see that it just says that we can get extra items at a reduced price and we can also get trailers. No price was mentioned for trailers.

    Yes, at the end of the article, it is clearly stated that demos are going to be free!!! Something that the OP conviniently "forgot" to quote or translate. Let's put this thread to rest already! DEBUNKED!

    u gotta be kidding! u see a conspiration behind everything or what? I OWN a PS3 and the first thing I want is the PS3 to be good! Second of all, I couldnt care LESS about paying 1 miserable euro for extra content.
    Now for those: whats your point? this is useless? I meant the extra content such as: new costumes? more maps? etc etc etc, the videos were a mistake sorry. and for the smartass saying EURO price will be 39,99 POUNDs, well the pound has NOTHING of european, because is way too british, so in the UE (EUROPEAN UNION) which is more countries that UK (BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!) it will be 59,99!
    This was my first thread, u guys make me wanna leave the damn forum, jesus.

    So this implies that paid-for content in the EU will be free in Japan and the US? I somehow doubt that.

    Demos and trailers are free - always have been, always will be.

    this was kind of an answer to people that were wondering if R:FoM extra content would be free. It probably wont in UE, that is all. My bad for trying to be helpful.

    I think this thread should be closed...... Because euro gamers might not want a ps3 after reading this and this information isn't 100% correct, theres no way they will make ppl in the UK pay for trialers and demos, that would be retarded.

    Again trying to state something that it's not stated in the article. :sleep:

    Where in the article does it say what you are saying? :sleep:

    Please stop. We (well me in particular) do not care if you leave the forums. If you don't like the forums, then you know what you can do.

    Prove that what you are trying to say is anywhere in the article. I bet you you can't because it isn't found anywhere in the article.

    Go back to my second post in this thread and you'll see where you are confusing what is being said in the article. I really don't know if you do it on purpos or by mistake but you have no basis to state what is bolded in your quote. Please read more carefully. I am not in Europe so I couldn't care less if UE is greater than UK (I know it is, we are not stupid).:sleep:

    First: never stated anything i said: It PROBABLY wont, so is a PROBABILITY not a statement. Second: I know you don't care, I dont expect you to but this forum targets a FRIENDLY community and you are not helping to achieve it. Third: I say EU is bigger because seems to some British people that UK is the whole UE, so it wasnt even directed to you =) so i repeat just in case you didnt get it... I said it PROBABLY(once more) wont, never assured it. Thank You!

    trilers are free
    as for other content
    games demos i think are free
    old games cost up to about £10
    extra content (guns levels) free- £2.50
