Wouldn't it have made more sense to decrease the price to compete with PS+ rather than increasing it and alienating their loyal fans? I think this is gonna drive a ot of people away

Ditto. I had a 360 at one point, brothers traded it, bad idea. In my opinion PS3 don't got much on 360 besides a browser....and now that the live fees went up, the idea of getting one again is crushed and I'm stuck with PS3.

^ It's only $10 a year more...

It has always been €60 here. That's $77,24.

so every time they decides to increase the stupid fee you gonna say "is only $10" paying to play online is wrong when you're already paying for the internet service which by the way little by little they are beginning to charge for downloads too the companies are getting greedier and greedier by the seconds

^ No. This is the first increase in 8 years and this guy says he isn't going to buy a Xbox because it costs 10 dollars more. 10 dollar a year is nothing.

Luckily I don't own a Xbox so I'm not paying at all.

lol at that OP qoute trying to not make it sound bad. 'finally getting a price increase' and 'after 8 years of the same price'

shouldnt the fucking price be going DOWN after 8 damn years?? Lmao, u live users are fucking dumb. I quit that shit after the free trial. That shit should be free, end of.

If u wanna play online do it on a PC, much better anyway.

yea that's a step in the wrong direction.


the reason you won't see a huge public out cry is because the core audience or community is 12 year olds who don't pay the bill.
