Now there's no reason to not get an Xbox 360?!
Except i can still pay nothing on my ps3 and play online for free....
Not only that but if demo's do become something you have to pay to play then having the ability to play an hour of a retail game for free then pay for the full thing sounds like a pretty good service to me.
Auto background patching of games is also fucking handy as and cross game chat.. pwoah
Not sure what the protection coverage is, something id like to learn more about.
Id also much rather pay a subscription and get access to the psone titles or mini's rather then buy them out right.
also this has greater potential with the addition of the psp.. especially if it allows the same kind of features.
