Having read more about this, I'm not interested anymore. I don't really care for Beta testing, Minis, and the PSN games I buy in a year will probably work out less than the subscription.

The updates in the background should be free to all PS3 owners also.

Does anyone know if they will be allowing you to back up game saves to a server? I heard ages ago it would be one of the features and have tried emailing SCEE but no reply (yet)

I wonder how long it will be before a game comes out that requires this service for online play. I am betting before christmas.

ah so the PS3 finally gets the Gold sub from xbox live. With added games that lock themselves up if you stop subscribing.

Missing the hook that makes people pay for live, Online gaming. It's basically the multiplayer tax. without that i don't think many would bother with it.

So i'm not expecting this to get very far unless games suddenly start coming out that only let you play online for the first couple months after release if you have this.

Or dlc and PSN games to suddenly be exclusive to memebers.

Mark my words its the start of a slippery slope when you start charging for things.

I've a bad feeling about this. I like my PS3 the way it is. I hope they know what they're doing. Do we have a three month free trial?

@ Multiplayerking - there is not going to be a free trial period - this was confirmed by Mike Kebby on the PSBlog yesterday.

The 'free' three months is being offered in the states as an incentive to early subscribers (i.e. 15 months for the price of 12)

In the EU we are being given Little Big Planet as the incentive for a 12 months subscription instead.

I know that this kind of sucks, as the E3 presentation did imply that we would all get a free trial, but this is sadly not the case.
