I wanted to reply to you here instead of the news section where you commented on my comment. If MS did the same thing as PSN+ NO I WOULD NOT PRAISE IT, nor would i take part in it.
Deals like PSN + only appeal to the playstation online weened babies who rent games, never keep them, and never buy new bud.
So to anwser your question.. No It would be just as much of a scam if MS did it bro. And I would not take any part in it. What Sony needs to do is fix their entire service from the ground up.. but what do they do? They do this instead.. go figure..
