Xbox one failed, being priced at $500, but now PS4, already costing $400, is charging for online play. NINTENDO!

Actually it requires PS+, which is much better than just a simple online fee. PS+ gives you free games, discounts, and demo access. So I think that $5 a month for a 12 month membership pays for itself.

No, just no. The Wii U is horrible and I shall never buy it.

Yes but with PS3 you weren't forced to do that. I know it has it's advantages but I still don't want to pay for something so common as online play.

Exactly, especially when you can get it completely for free with WiiU

I didn't realize you got games for free on Wii U. Don't Starve is confirmed to be free for PS+ users.

Well yes the X1 costs more and the price for good for gold as PS+ the X- will also be embracing free to play games. Besides that they said that if one person on an X1 has Xbox live gold then everyone on that console can play online which, for me and my brother, halves the annual price which eventually will cover for the price.

Yeah, you have to pay 50 bucks a year for ps+. But, it is far better than Xbox live. From what I have heard, the new live will coast 60 (not sure here to be honest). That is only to play online. With the psn, you pay 50 a year and you get free games every month. That makes it worth it in my opinion. And the new psn will be able to match the Xbox live. The ps4 basically coast 450, way worth it to play online and get free games.

The wiiu doesn't really have a need for it. Most of the games are single player focused and don't have the greatest multiplayer. And not to mention the ever so annoying friend codes that make it more complicated than necessary. Psn and xlive have better online play, that's why it coasts money.
