well i for 1 have no problem paying to play online, ive been saying this from the start that this is what they should do...it hurts me to say this cause i hate xbox with a passion, but they had it right from the start..i mean look at there servers and universal f list it amazes me there is so much you can do on it and every game ive seen on Xbox is lag free and hit detection is near perfect. Is $8-$12 dollars really so bad a month??
A perfect example for pay and play online game for playstation is final fantasy online, i played it for abit when it came out and there is so much detail and so many people playing at once in the same server and u rarely see lag and i was playing on my PS2. So it just goes to show that it is possible to create a near perfect game especially on a PS3 with the technology in it cause it definitly surpasses Xbox by a mile.
