    I think its still too early to say personally.

    We don't know what Home is going to be like, I have heard both good and bad about it, there is mixed feelings.

    We know what Live offers its players, and clearly that for the most part is a success. We know nothing or very little about Pay To Play and what it will offer. If its in our best interest to "Pay and Play" then people will do it, because the free thing for Nintendo right now is just not cutting it.

    So really we need to wait another month or so till we know more, and have a better idea of what is in store for all.

    Stupid reason for 360/Wii owners to "root" for it. Atleast for 360 players... MS will never make it free, they are making ALOT of money off of it. Chances are MS just comes up with new things to make LIVE worth paying for, not making it free.

    ^ i have to agree. if home does do well, nintendo and microsoft will be forced to put in more features, not go free.

    There's a reason why some things have fees - servers and bandwidth aren't free.

    All those "free" PC game servers aren't free. That's someone either renting a server from a company, or they're using their home computer as a server, and subsequently, it's bandwidth to host a game.

    Before anyone uses EA as an example, it's not, it's an exception. EA can eat the loss for hosting game servers, almost no one else can do that. Hell, they couldn't even justify hosting servers in Australia, because of how few people they felt would actually take advantage of their "free" servers. i.e. they didn't think they would sell enough copies of the game to pay for however amount of time they think it will be popular.

    I like the sound of Home, it's one of the few reasons I actually like the PS3.
