Sony gets stingy with Network downloads

The PlayStation3 boasts it’s amazing graphics, great gameplay, built in Blu-ray player, HD games and interactive (and free) downloads. Almost.

As we know, Sony’s PS3 is known for its wide range of free online or downloadable gaming content, unlike Microsoft, which forces users to pay for online game play via the Xbox Live subscription service. One of the few notable advantages of the PS3, Sony recently announced that they have to pay a whopping(!) $0.16 per gigabyte downloaded.

Sony has decided to resolve this problem by sending a message out to all of their loyal publishers, warning them it’s detrimental affects on Sir Stringer’s salary, thus supposedly encouraging those publishers to re-think their decisions on how many products they produce and publish.

This is going to end up having detrimental effects on PlayStation3 users in the long run, as many smaller, independent publishers will be less likely to research and develop free content.

Come on Sony, don’t be so stingy! – o.
