i would be remiss if i didn’t mention some sony gossip: plans to potentially make people pay for the services we have all been loving for free. straight from the tiger woods school of ‘we had everything, then chose to fuck it all up’ learning, rumours have been circulating for a while now. bigwigs are making it their mission to soothe all the children out there [specifically kaz hirai], but it doesn’t seem like it’s going away.
for centuries, happy little sony gamers have been lording it over their equally little xbox counterparts: we get this shit for FREE. so when the system goes down, or the servers are crammed, we’re ok with it. after all, sony has treated us pretty well, and not spun any microsoft bullshit ‘oh but we put that money into development…’ over us.
on the homefront, canadians really haven’t given a shit that we can’t get video and music through the playstation store. ‘fuck it,’ we shrug. ‘we’ll just download it somewhere else. we love this free service anyway and we’re ok with it being the way it is.’
now they want us to PAY for it? come on. all the games are sold promising leaderboards, trophies and all that good shit, so probably not that. are they going to make us play to use the biggest sony joke ever, playstation home?
guess we can only stay tuned.
