Power Button - Episode 102: What's To Come For PlayStation Plus And Xbox Live Gold?
August 08, 2013
Sony and Microsoft have each found varying degrees of success with their paid online services, PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold. Both services have evolved over the lives of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but what does the future hold for these services? On this episode of the Power Button podcast, Blake Grundman and I discuss our experiences with the services, outline what about them needs improvement, and predict what's to come for them in the next generation of consoles. Will the Instant Game Collection thrive on the PlayStation 4? Will Microsoft take Netflix and other video apps out from behind the paywall? Will Nintendo join the party with a similar paid service of its own? We don't know for sure, but like to think we do.
