    party chat, party film watch, actually lobby up and join games together, sky player, zune, (altho it is really dear and i have never used this).
    it doesnt say anything about the annual fee going up, just the monthly one, and tbh if your paying this way your a fool anyway

    I can do this no probs on psn?

    party chat I would like rest I couldn't give a shit about

    having said that I used to happily pay my xbox live subs and probably still would if I had a machine I could put on live - ps3 and psn does me fine at the moment

    will grab one of the new 360's soon so no doubt will pay subs again

    not only that - it's 10 DOLLARS a year increase so even less than ten quid . Can't see anyting about the annual fee in the UK going up anywhere though so why are people talking about it going up 10 POUNDS??

    Even look at the monthly. In the UK it goes up £1 and in the US it goes up $2. Finally us Brits aint getting screwed with the exchange rate.

    hardly suprising as they have kept the price pretty constant so it was always gonna go up at some point.

    never tries PSN so cant comment on the differences but i am quite happy with Xbox Live, renewed my yearly subscription from ebay for £28 so not really bothered about the increase (if it even affects the yearly paid subs) as i have my flashed xbox too so the money im saving on buying new games can easily cover my subscription
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Unbelievable!, take a look at how much Sony charge for their online PC games [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] , and this is their special saver price! When I used to play Planetside in the early days (when it was good, 2003-2005ish) that game alone was £8 per Month!! the servers were up and down like a whores drawers with nobody around to sort them at the weekends!
    MS have got an unrivalled and very reliable service going for which they charge, compared to what Sony charge for online gaming on the PC, what is a pittance! They've kept the price the same from day one and even if they put it up for the Annual sub in the UK it'll still be great value you bunch of cheapskates!

    That's pretty gay, I might pick up a couple of years worth of subscription now as mine runs out in December.

    I guess this is about the cheapest right now
