Re: Playstation Plus is Getting a $10 Price Hike...

Now there is no reason other than the SHOW to pick PS4 over XBOX One...first EA Access and now this. And to think, when the console wars began, I was going with PS4....Thankfully there are sales on these now and then, I can't justify paying full price for XBOX Live or PS+. Biggest ripoff in gaming, the only draw is being able to play online.

All 3 of them are platforms that offer similar services:

- Monthly or yearly fee
- Selection of Free games
- Discounts on online purchases

To recap, I pay a monthly fee for each one and I only use them for the free games/discounts. Now do you see why I compare them?

The Xbox One is my primary platform, I rarely ever play online on PSN, and apparently the price hike is $20 in Canada, so I think I'll pass on renewing my subscription (or maybe renew once soon before the price increase, then pass the next time I'm set to renew after that).

I can probably buy the occasional "free" game that appeals to me, and spend less than $70 per year.

This was my reasoning as well, the "free" games that actually interested me I could buy preowned for cheaper and have the added ability to trade them in later. Both services used to be so much better in the past.

The base of PS Plus isn't "FREE GAMEZ!!!!!!" they aren't the same service.

For the third time, For MY usage PS+/Xbox Live is ONLY for FREE Games and discounts. For ME online play is NOT a factor. So for ME all 3 of them are competing services that offer free games and discounts. And EA Access is the best value among the 3 of them for ME. Does that make more sense to you now?

I don't get why everyone is acting like this is a big deal...

Xbox Live went up $10 from $50 to $60 in 2011... No one cared... Those who used XBL found it justifiable- those who didn't had PS3s or were PC Master Race dudes before that was cool.

Sony was actually being very competitive to offer PS+ for $50 for the first 3 years... Not to mention there are TONS of discounts in the PS Store in addition to the free games every month for PS+ subscribers.

Yes, I would like to change my username every now and then. Yes, I think a 2-Step verification process is vital. And yes, it was stupid to not have an appear offline function for the first 2.5 years, but all in all, I would much rather pay a small premium to have a seamlessly integrated online experience versus a free service where cross game chat and other features don't exist (PSN) or are all 3rd party and have to be patched together with inconsistent reliability (Steam + take your pick apps/ programs).
