yea we know how outrageus this is for the charges for online

I wouldn't call this outrageous at all. With PS+ you'll be getting about 20 free games a month, for less than $5 a month.

I think that the X1, even though is still more expensive... is worth it. it has better exclusives and Live has never had a problem. im ok with pay 60 bucks a year for something as reliable as Live

Ghost, you may be brutally fooled. The X1 is going to be embracing free to play games, PS4 hasn't talked about this to the best of my knowledge. My thinking is that all those free to play games us X1er's will be getting for free you guys have to pay $50 a year for.

PS3 already gives you free games to play and games you can get for cheap if you have their plus account (you pay) which means if PS4 doesn't have free games then they will be shooting themselves in the Foot.

PS4 has it in the bag even if they do make you pay for online. They will still be a better console

It was a highly rated thread on /r/gaming, and I can't be bothered sifting through my history for it. I've clicked a lot of links there.
What I recall from it was PS+ players will be getting around 20 free games a month to play. I don't know about owning the games, but for $50 a year, 20 games every month sounds awesome. Even if that's not the correct number of free games, I don't care. The PS+ membership will be less than $5 a month, works for PS3, PS4, and Vita, and they won me over with these details plus it's going to be more powerful than the Xbone.

I did a bit of research and here's how it works: When you sign up for PS+, you get 12 Playstation (as in console) and 6 Vita games to download for free. That selection is on a monthly rotation system, but you can redownload any of your previously downloaded games for free as long as you're a PS+ member. If the membership expires, so does your access to those games.

He said free games, as in free AAA games, not free-to-play games. The ironcy is that "free" games like World of Tanks will require you to buy Live in order to play them, because that's the whole business model.

Which automatically works because for this console because you have to have PS+, so dozens of free games for me!

This guy put the entire story of the PS4 and Xbox one together here:

I have a question for all those Xbox one people out there, what would happen if your internet goes out for a couple of days, and your Xbox becomes as useful as a brick, what then?

It's not 20 games a month. I think you get like 12 games instantly when you sign up for PS+. After that every month you get 5 free games. 2 of them for PS Vita.
