The PS5 launches in just a few months from now, and excitement for the console is continuing to ramp up. There’s plenty that Sony have shown and talked about that we’re quite excited about, but at the same time, we’re also hoping there are some things that the PS5 won’t do, thanks to worries based either on industry trends, or Sony’s own past practices. In this feature, we’ll be talking about a few such things.

PAID ONLINE

Paid online has, unfortunately, become an industry standard as far as consoles are concerned. Nintendo were the last holdouts, but with Nintendo Switch Online becoming a thing, the dream of going back to the days of free online gameplay on consoles seems more distant than ever. That’s a real shame, because if there’s one thing every consumer can agree on with next-gen consoles, it’s that online should not be paid. When you’re already paying good money for an online game but then have to pay a subscription fees to PSN as well, that’s a hard pill to swallow. Sure, Sony might argue that their dedicated storefront, online service, its feature set, and the free games PS Plus gives to its subscribers is worth the subscription fees, but one only needs to take a look at PC stores like Steam (with its excellent feature set and thriving community) or the Epic Games Store (with its barrage of excellent free games) to realize that you don’t need to be a paid service to do all that.
