No unified Sony online service

by: John -
As an owner of a PS2 and having played some great online PS2 games, I'm not really shocked by this news. A post on GamesFirst! talks about how the PlayStation 3 won't have an online service similiar to Xbox Live. While some people think this is really stupid, others just don't really seem to care as they aren't paying to play most of the online stuff. I've played NBA 2K5 on both online services and had the same experience: I played a basketball game with a live human. We'll see how this decision, if it's true, affects the PlayStation 3 but that's so far off right now with the launch of the system being a 9 months to a year away.

Thanks Joystiq!
