Default Rumor: PSN to start charging?

Just saw this over at MaximumPC:

I hope this is not true!

Also please don't flame me if someone has already posted...

Yeah, lots of talk about it in Smackdown. All signs point to a premium service though - meaning they would only charge for new features. Online play should still be free.

I never even knew people still posted in Smackdown... j/k.

Anyway, just interested in a non-smackdown way. I bought a PS3 for the blu ray... but now use it as my go to game device because of the free online as well.

If the premium content was worth it, I would not mind at all, just give me an intuitive layout and streamlined interface and im sold...

I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure the basic online play will remain free for the remainder of the gen.

Thats all I want. I looked at home for a total of 15 minutes and thought it was rubbish.

I've actually moved over to the PS3 for downloadable movies also. I think the PS3's layout is far superior to the new BS Zune video store that the Xbox has. If it adds worthwhile features I'll gladly pay for it.
