If they do keep it free that's great for gamers. I think before the hacking stuff that they dealt with, they were gearing up towards a similar program like MS....."silver" level membership is free and can be used for offline playing, but if you want the online portion as well & all that comes with it, you have to pay for a "gold" level membership. I'm probably wrong thinking that, but man that's a lot of money to lose. PS players will pay for it just like Xbox players do.
But hey, if they want to lose that money to try to grab the people that are 50/50 between PS/Xbox, all the better for us gamers.
I'm one of those 50/50 gamers. I love my 360, but I also loved all my PS consoles before. I don't mind paying for the gold membership personally, I do the family one and get 4 Live id's for $100 - or basically $2.10 a month per person. I can understand that people don't want to pay that though.
Ahh well, going to be fun to see who wins my dollars next go round.
