Sony’s PSN (PlayStation Network) is free and I, like many others, like it that way. Sony seem to know this and today Shuhei Yoshida has explained to GamesIndustry.biz Sony’s view on providing very good services free of charge.

We like to provide as many services as possible for free — we already provide our network access for gameplay for free — and the interesting thing about the network side and the Internet business is that there’s a variety of revenue sources. Not necessarily getting people to pay, but with advertising and so on.

Those are things we’re looking at, and learning how we can provide a service without people having to pay — but we still get our operation running with funding from somewhere so that we can maintain the level of quality we want.

It’s nice to see Sony trying (and in my opinion succeeding) to give gamers a great, free experience. They never mention ‘Quore’ do they? Ah well they’ve got to make $3 a month from somewhere.
