So when you connect to PSN, where does the server for that come from? When you download updates, where do those servers come from? $60 a year is dirt cheap. Especially when you get Drive Club, a $60 game with it for free.

I was disappointed by the online required subscription but you know what, we need it.
When the PS3 came out PSN was pretty bare bones. The store was clunky, and there wasn't many integrated features that relied on it outside of a game with multiplayer functionality. We got basic text messaging features but no voice chat with PSN contacts while you play a game unless its supported in the game and everyone is on the same game.
With cross game chat, gaikai, game streaming, PS Home maturing etc it's becoming more expensive to run the PSN network. They deserve to get some cash for running all that.
The only thing I don't like would be paying an online game subscription (think MMORPGs) on top of a PS+ subscription. I think an exception should be made for games that have their own subscriptions, either not needing PS+ for those specific games, or their sub price removed (or reduced by 5$/month) for PS+ members.
All the people moving over from xbox are use to paying an online subscription so it's easy to cash in on those guys if they switch over.
lol dont try to justify Sony charging people for PSN now for the PS4. Microsoft got away with it and people accepted it. So Sony is going to do the same thing.... They could of kept it optional like they did with the PS3. Free PSN and PSN+ I have nothing against it BUT
Down the road Sony will charge EXTRA for streaming and etc..etc.. I can see it happening a mile away
i was just thinking about it, and it says only online multi-player. so, it seems like if you're not an online gamer, you could still get online features like the ps store and chatting in game and stuff, just can't play other players.
that's just me speculating though. i would think they'd just say PS4 online access blah blah blah instead of throwing in multi-player.
I do play online. I am a current PS+ member what I find hilarious is that currently PS3 + PS4 games COST THE SAME!
But anyways I'm going to stick with my PS3 most of the games that are coming out on the PS4 will be on the Ps3. I like the graphics on the Ps3. I am going to buy a PS4 but not right away probably when they stop supporting the PS3 which wont be for the next two years.
Why spend $400 on graphics that is 20% better than the PS3? On a graphical standpoint the graphics are not going to jump like it did on the PS2. But hey whoever wanna follow the hype go ahead.
that's what i thought, then i take a closer look at the games and they are pretty big jump. plus you factor in everything technically and man, it's just impressive. i mean, it's not like games are gonna be terrible when they're on both consoles, but i think once you see exclusives, you'll realize that the videos are all real time and not made in a studio.
they got like movie graphics going real time now, it's nuts.
I see what you are saying but I am still not going to jump ship yet. It's going to take alot more for me to spend out money on a new console.
I personally do not have problems with the ps3 graphics they are pretty good (to me) if devs make the game for the Ps3 aswell then ima play it on the Ps3. Let's not forget I also have a jailbroken PS3 so I can pretty much play whatever I want... it's like the PS VITA I wanna buy one but there is no games out for it... for the PS4 why buy one when most games I can get for free on my PS3?
It makes no sense to me.
For all we know it could have been an issue with the game itself, not the console. And even if it was I know that the problem would be addressed and fixed by the time pre-oders were available. Even $ony wouldn't be that irresponsible...nooo way, they have been the epitome of what a respectable business should be ;p.
