Sony considering different online membership tiers for PS4
Please make online gaming free.
Sony may follow Microsoft’s example and start a subscription based tiers for the PS4. There are no details on the online service except that it will be powered by Gaikai and they are planning to create the fastest gaming network in the world.
Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida revealed this to Videogamer by suggesting that they may try a gold, silver or platinum membership tiers.
“As more and more services and contents become available digitally, we’ll have more of an option to create attractive packages,” said Yoshida. “So hypothetically we can look at different models – like a cable TV company,” he told the site.
“We could have gold, silver or platinum levels of membership, something like that. We can do subscription services when we have more content – especially now that we have the Gaikai technology available. With one subscription you have access to thousands of games – that’s our dream.”
This is not confirmed yet and they could show something new at E3. The system will be released on holiday 2013.
