Dark Mist themes are to be bought, no longer free? May 16, 2008Posted by stvchang in games, gaming news, PS3, PS3 games, Sony, tech news.
Oh no!! If this are the shape of things to come, then PS3 users will be lighter in the wallets from getting new themes to dress up their PS3s.
In order to dress up your PS3 with the new Dark Mist themes, users will have to fork out SG1.29 or HKD7.00 (RM3.00) to get it from Sony HK, as per screen shot above. This is an unprecedented move and this may signal the end of Sony PS3‘s free online content?
Whats even more strange is that Sony HK is asking you to pay for Themes! I really hope that they will not start charging for their online multiplayer, as this is their key difference from Xbox Live, a paid user online service for Microsoft’s Xbox360.
It seems that US and EU PS Stores have not started this, perhaps it will soon?
