Personally, Cross-game voice chat should be free...as should auto downloads and Facebook, but overall, not too bad. Cloud storage is a definitely plus as is the discounts, free games, beta access, and the extended warranty.

im against this for the most part. its cool that regardless everyone will still be able to play games online for free but some of that stuff should be for everyone. and of course once you get enough people paying for it they will eventually up the price. theres only a few things in that possible list id even be interested in but not enough to pay for.

A fair assessment. Not sure if there's enough that would interest me but my curiosity is piqued.

Some stuff is cool, and it'd make me consider paying for premium, but other stuff seems dumb to me.

I wouldnt mind paying to get the first hour of games free, free PSone games, minis, and themes, a music service, and discounts on stuff in the store. That said, having to pay for things like trophy alerts (I'm assuming this means those little pop-ups when you unlock a trophy), cross game chat, and automatic downloads and updates seems stupid to me.

I am actually extremely interested in that. That alone with some other things make premium worth it.

Yeah, my PS3 has been rock solid but I wouldn't mind an added warranty.

But as for the rest of the features, I honestly don't care as long as online gaming remains free.

So I guess it would behoove Sony to just not offer them all together then rather than give people the choice.

From the way I read it, Sony isn't going to take away any of the free features so we'll lose nothing should this be implemented.

I agree with the OPs assessment. Cross game voice chat seems like it should be free, but I could understand if the reason why it has yet to be implemented is because of the costs associated with that kind of throughput.

Personally I would seriously consider the option with the PSOne titles, because as a PSP owner, having that kind of access would add some great value to both systems. Most of the other additional features I could live without.

Sounds like a great idea on Sonys part, since they could sure use the money from all the money they lose on each unit sold.

As long as online gaming is free, I'm fine with charging for extras.

If they pump out more PSone classics and or make an international section with japanese games, the PSone classics thing would make me buy premium instantly. I'd kill for the Megaman games on the US PSone classics section.

It said 20-60 a year. 30 is my max that I'd pay. Possibly 40 IF and IF they bring Japanese only imports to the PSN store.

I would be willing to pay if I got all those features for 30 dollars or less. I hate the idea of paying online for anything.

I would def. pay for Premium services for this but I highly doubt something like that wuld be included.

sounds like a cobbled together bunch of crap to me, with the exception of unlimited PSone games. That I'd be interested in for about $20/year

If it was unlimited access to their full library of psone it'd be at least $10 a month, similar to game tap. and it'd be worth it. Especially if it helps to increase the number of PSone games they add to the service,. I'd also be interested in them adding similar PS3, PS2, and PSP packages as well.

X-Game chat would just equalize them with 360. I guess you could argue you have to pay for this on 360, but I think it would really make sense for them to make it free, as just another benefit of PSN over live. If they charge for it, they can't use it as a plus.

FB integration would really be free advertising for them to have Playstationy topics on people FB pages. Makes sense for them to give it to everyone, regardless if they pay for premium services or not. It would cost next to nothing to run, just a bit of R&D.

Time access to PSN games might not be a good idea, as the hype will have died away by the time non-paying members get access. Timed access to demos seems fair.

I have no issue with them charging for those other items though. I wouldn't be interested in them, but there is the potential of good value there, i.e, PSOne games for free etc. I really hope they are smart about this. But sony's decisions tend to be polarized: brilliant, or retarded.

Meh I'd buy since they're giving us the option two. X360 forces you to.

I expect all the services I am currently getting to be free when and if a premium service becomes available.

All of those services I could really do without. I doubt the ps3 can even handle all those features at a decent pace, considering the XMB can be downright slow at times (especially when playing a graphics/cpu intensive game).

The free PS1 games, beta access, and disc-less Netflix. I already have a 3 year warranty through squaretrade so that's a big 'meh' for me.

If those PSOne Classics are just for rental I'll pass. Getting them at a discount for paying the premium game price I might take.
Honestly though I think I might go for the Japanese premium plan instead if I got a discount on PSOne Classics as the offerings are for shit on PSN U.S. I'll take "Xenogears", "Brave Fencer Musashi" and "Einhander" as well as some of the others on Japanese PSN. I mean the SNK offerings are great for fighters.

I think Kaz said that if they ever do implement a paid-premium PSN service, it would be optional alongside the free service we have now.

I think the biggest matter is cost... if it was $30 a year, I would go for it simply because of the extended warranty and perks like free PSN games, early demos, etc.

All that features sounds nice but one feature that'll really make me pay for is higher download speed. Everything I download from PSN is dirt slow but XBLA downloads are much quicker.
