PlayStation 2’s Online Plans: Sony

PlayStation 2’s Online Plans: Sony will launch its online gaming offering for the PlayStation 2, giving it a headstart of over two months on Microsoft’s competing Xbox Live service. Unlike Xbox Live, Sony will have no annual subscription fees for the basic PS2 online services, but companies are free to design their own subscription models and infrastructure for individual games.
