Hmm, well, it occurs to me that this is less likely to be used to breathe life into older games more than to help market newer gamers. What's more when they mention "subscription extensions" it pretty much means they seem to be keeping the idea of "people shall pay for our multiplayer" and chances are that alone will keep me away from the new X-box, I don't play multiplayer very often, but I do not agree with paying X # of $ per month for the right to get my head kicked in with whatever fighting game I'm interested in for the moment. If the Playstation keeps that free, that's where I go. Chances are this generation I won't be buying both consoles again.
You have to pay a monthly subscription of 5 euros, I don't know the rest of the prices but i suspect it's $/£5 too, keep in mind this is for multiplayer every other online function like communication is free but this means you have PS+ too meaning you get all the benefits plus multiplayer (not that buy saying "Plus" is a bonus or anything).
PS4 have done similar if not the same as Xbone, the difference is, PS4 didn't reveal too much at first too (and i'm guessing) re think their strategy
-No DRM for first or even second party games.
-DRM is all on the publishers
-Giving more tangible (sorta) benefits for online subscription
-No convoluted way to block used games or traded games
these are small things but just enough and they don't pander or condescend like M$ did, it may not last, after 4 years they may make their online completely free. But at the moment PS4 are being reasonable, i doubt i'll take advantage more than 4 times though as i like fighting games.
