Sony Gives Microsoft a Run for Their Money... But Probably Not

Looks like Sony may have some big news at CES this year. Everyone in the gaming community knows that the Xbox is much more popular when it comes to online play: Xbox Live vs. PlayStation Home. But now it appears that Sony has decided to try to give Microsoft a run for their money.

On Thursday a subtle announcement implied that Sony is coming out with a "premium level" subscription service for the PlayStation Network. Although the announcement was not a sure thing, it was confirmed by Kaz Hirai, and is expected to be released within a year.

It was very unclear what the "premium content and services" will include, but the services already included on the PlayStation home service; Facebook, Netflix, etc., will still be free. This may be the break Sony was looking for, a chance to finally gain the title for best online game play. But with all the features recently released on the Xbox will Sony be able to outdo them?
