Well, you did cite Major Nelson as an acceptable source and his site is a blog...

I really am sorry you didn't have the guts to bet.

If they continue to offer free games, I'll accept it as one of the minor perks. If they do away with the games and cause the PS+ subscrip to be nothing but a paywall to everything they've offered free in the past, I'll go without.

There's another post, look for the Playstation World topic. The rumor/leak is that Sony is offering free online for the PS4. This thread is pretty much dead now except for Jason trying to get $50 from Doug.

Just $50? Oh, no. I had multiple $50 bets in mind.

yes MN is a blog, but he works for MS, so thats official.

Lets get real here..you cant back up your claim with an official source. Which means you lost the bet.

Not sure. If the system is $500+ and then they want me to pay for multiplayer, no thanks.

Multiplayer on PC is free. Only console fans are okay with this.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 10:06:32 AM PST
Sure, I can. You just don't have the guts. Now run along.

Whoa, buddy, only Xbox Live Gold subscribers are ok with this. There are plenty of console owners who are not ok with this.

then list the official site (MS, Xbox.com, MN)...otherwise run along

I wont respond to your post unless it has an official site backing up your claims of the bet you lost.

So pay up!

For him to have lost the bet, that means that it was made. Did you take the bet?

If it is bundled with PS+, yes. If not, I'll stick to singleplayer on consoles and mutliplayer on PC.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 11:48:25 AM PST
Damn. Well, at least it's free.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 12:00:23 PM PST
It's not a dealkiller for me, since I don't even play non-local multiplayer.

I can see why it would be a problem for others though.

Im more hoping that This goes the other way. I want to see MS drop the paywall for online play and offer something more substantial for the money.

I dont want to pay a fee next gen. If I have to go back to PC then thats what I'll do.

Posted on Feb 20, 2013 12:21:34 PM PST
No PS+ for me, no paying for multiplayer.

The multiplayer is free. The payment is for Plus which gives you games every month. WHy are people still not getting this concept?

People been paying for XBL for so long it just seems normal :p

The supposition is "what if the PSQuatro puts multiplayer behind a paywall (which is whatever PS+ morphs into)?"

So if with the PSQuatro, you can't play multiplayer without a PS+ subscription (which still gives free games and discounts) is that going to be a problem for people?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 1:31:04 PM PST
Yes. Just because I have a sub doesn't mean that everyone does. Nothing as core to gaming as MP should require a paywall beyond what has already been passed by purchasing the software, the hardware, and the internet service. Oh, and the electricity for those who are really trying to stretch it.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 1:42:58 PM PST
I'm interested in how I would feel about this if I actually enjoyed online multiplayer. Personally, I'm kind of hoping that it just goes away, but that's not going to happen.

MrFoxhound says:
Because they just read the first post, then reply, then read the last 5 posts and get into the argument without realizing that it's basically been confirmed that Sony will continue to offer free, online MP with the PS4.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 1:47:42 PM PST
The interesting scenario would be the compromise situation where free users get a limited number of hours of multiplayer for free, but are cut off beyond that without a paying subscription. That would technically be a way to technically "offer free online MP" but still wrangle people into subscriptions.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 1:59:10 PM PST
Nothing has been confirmed at this point.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 20, 2013 2:11:12 PM PST
I would rather them require Plus for MP than this. What if I'm playing with someone and their time expires during a mission? My team has an automatic handicap.
