With the recent price increase announcement of Xbox Live, does this make PlayStation Plus a better deal now? Xbox LIVE’s old pricing has always been a fair price considering the amount of features it delivers, and hopefully this price increase introduces new features that will make the extra $10 worth the change., but let’s not forget another great price the PSN offers, free 99.
While Sony offers free PlayStation Network access, which allows you to play online chat with friends, download demos and much more, they also offer PlayStation Plus for a fee of $49.99 a year, which entitles you to everything the free subscription offers, plus exclusive features and offers for subscribers. Although PS Plus and Xbox Live work offer different features and work different, PlayStation Plus just got started, so a price increase would not be a concern and more features and content is sure to come. So, does this make PlayStation Plus a better deal now? Let’s face it, PS Plus has been getting mixed reviews, but it’s still too early to tell what it’s full potential is.
The latest price changes for Xbox Live will affect all Xbox Live gamers and I do see why some people may get upset, but in due time Microsoft may announce what this new pricing has to offer. But we have to admit that Sony’s pricing at Free 99 is very nice, and may very well be the selling point when making a console purchase. Why hasn’t Microsoft considered a Free Xbox Live subscription? Now, that would have had made tons of positive noise.
For now, we recommend you upgrade your Xbox LIVE subscription to avoid the extra $10 come November 1st.
