    i can handle that, play for free like always just an extra service options for an extra fee. other game consoles should do that.

    oh wait.

    Everything we already have is going to remain free, including online play. Nothing is even confirmed.

    Nobody knows what it will be.

    While true, I don't know if they'll charge for cross party chat. It seems like the things they're heavily considering are video, music, etc content and access to more exclusive demos and betas and the like.

    And the cross party chat was already promised in the next huge update. I don't think it would go over well to Sony's fans if they suddenly went and charged for it.

    When was cross game chat confirmed and or promised to be in the next update? I thought this was wishful thinking.

    How hilarious would it be if they introduced a timer that only let you play an hour a day before telling you to upgrade? Although, this would be a awesome way to get people to join. If you hardly play online you'd still can do it free.

    My beef is how come people can't see that you're online if you're watching a Blu ray or DVD?

    Yea, I think so, but every article I read about their premium service only discusses things like video, demos, and betas. Says nothing about charging for party chats.

    I don't know how successful Qore is but I think that it's pretty limited in those aspects. What I would like to see out of a premium service for sony is some kind of free access to movies and tv shows in their PSN library, guaranteed access to exclusive early demos (like Uncharted 2's demo, but you don't have to preorder to get it), and some benefits in way of DLC for games.

    If I'm watching a movie, sometimes I'm just killing time waiting for someone guys to get on to play Uncharted 2 or Socom or whatever. Iono I would just like the option like on Xbox Live I sit and watch TV shows/Movies while waiting for guys to get on for Left 4 Dead 2 or COD MW 2.
