i got a weird message in my inbox on playstaion network saying that Sony was going to start charging in order ot play online? anyone else heard of this? the hole reason i bought the PS3 was so that i didnt have to pay to play.

if they do.... its only b/c they see the potential money it will give them.

but they better improve the online to like xbox's live if they do charge.

Not surprised about that at all. I'm sure they were planning on charging all along, just had to wait until they had enough people addicted to their e-crack first.

I have yet to see such a message, and no other gaming media website I've seen has even hinted toward hearing a rumor about that. And since when would sony put a message like that in your inbox? It'd be in the news page, the website, front page of the store, etc.

Hey guess what, I heard the IRS is gonna make us list firearms on our tax returns!

You've been spammed.

it wasnt from Sony themselves. another person, i remember the name from playing on COD4 but dont know the person in any way.

i didnt expect it to be true but i was going to be pissed if it was.

And that's why it's spam. Kotaku, Screwattack, etc will have info on that before you'll hear about it from a non Sony employee via PSN.

They won't do it, otherwise it'll be another reason to get an XBox: if you're going to pay for online console gaming, might as well go with the best service that's out there with the 360

In other news, COD xbox 360 bundle here I come!

If they want to compete with Xbox live they may need to.

I've been using my ps3 over my xbox because of the free service. I would prefer to play on the xbox service if ps decides to charge.

That would suck! Some games are only for internet play anyways. If that is the case, I will just start buying games that are PC based.
