Submission + - Sony to start charging for "premium PSN"-> 2 2

ranulf writes: Sony have announced at E3 that they intend to start charging for "premium PSN" now, even though they've long started that one of the PS3's advantages over the 360 is that they offer PSN for free.

They're selling this as you getting a free PSN game each month from a choice of "2-4 games", which should make the premium PSN effectively free if you already bought a game every month.

There's no mention of whether they intend to keep a free version of PSN, or what functionality might be removed to encourage people to move to the premium PSN other than free games.
