Despite the fact that PSN has Free online play, it has a LOT of hidden costs.

I can't think of any MMO's coming to the 360, aside from Huxley and that was cancelled for the 360.

I guess you could add stuff like avatar costumes but i dunno, this is about monthly fees right? (in that case u may as well take away gamertag changing because that's like buying something, to me at least. Though on the other hand if it's free on ps3 it should be mentioned that it's not on 360. I dunno :S

It will probably start getting more features like Live has, but it will take some time.

I really don't understand why you're putting MMOs on that list. They're games, not features of the PSN. It seems like you purposely found ways to make the PSN seem more expensive.

And you don't seem to understand the automatic update feature available to PSN+ subscribers. It's not that as soon as you sign in the update starts to download and install, like with the 360. What happens is, the console automatically turns on and starts to download the update, so you don't have to.

MMO's are additional subscription costs to the service where if a gamer wants to use them, they're gonna have to pay. And with the updates, I know that the PS3 will turn on and automatically do it, but you need to pay that $50 a year or you'll have to wait up to an hour for the firmware to finish downloading and installing, while if you have a 360, it'll do it when you turn it on and the firmware is quicker to download too, and if you own a Wii, the firmware will download in standby mode and you won't have to turn on the console at all.

But they have nothing to do with PSN. Yes, you do have to pay to be able to play them, but it's not an added cost for the PSN. That's like saying paying for a WoW subscription is part of paying for your internet.

Also, "up to an hour" my ass. It's never taken more than fifteen minutes for me.

I included with the cost of PS+ which is a premimum service with PSN. And also 1 hour is a good time for me because mine usually take 1 - 1.5 hours. the shortest ever for me was 20 minutes and that was for 3.01, which wasn't a major update at all.

Read the whole thing. He says the price can range up to whatever depending if you play mmos. He showed the minimum cost as well, did you not realise that?
He also included name changing for XBL which you don't need, it's additional IF you want to, just like mmos.

I play xbox 360, ps3 and WoW. Most expensive in order is WoW, Xbow then PS3. Although I just purchesed plus. Good service. It has potential. I really like the free games once a week.
