After months of annoying chain letters talking about the rumored PSN network adding a premium to the beloved free PSN network service. It turns out it’s more than just a rumor. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president Andrew House has confirmed Sony is looking to introduce a pay-to-play service similar to Xbox live in a recent fan in question & answer post.
“I can assure you that the current PSN as you know it will remain a free service. It is something that our competitors don’t offer and something that shows our loyalty to the PlayStation Community. However, Kaz Hirai stated a few months ago that we were looking at a premium service to sit alongside the current free service and that objective has not changed. You’ll learn more about it very soon.”
