I hope this means we'll get something like PSN or XBL (but free since that's how it's been for the last 4 years of NN)

Hopefully this doesn't mean that NN will become a paid service like PS+ lol. Rolling Eyes

Agreed, hopefully it won't be a paid service like Playstation Plus, because there are alot of people who just can't afford to pay that kind of money above and beyond what they already are for their gaming hobby...

There are some people who would say that if you can't afford it then you should choose a different hobby, but many of us started gaming decades ago when the economy was still terrific and if we were to suddenly quit gaming it would almost certainly cripple the video game industry. Neutral

Maybe they'll do what PS3 did where you can choose one or the other
