    Kind of throws the "One fee for all" Live service for a loop. We'll have to wait and see what happens in the US
    PSO fee
    Oh and some impressions of NFL Fever 2003 online

    Hate to sound smug, Romier, but I told you so... Microsoft have made it clear in the 'small print' that publishers are able to levy fees on top of the Live! subscription.

    It's worth making it clear that so far the PSO info is only for Japan I believe, they haven't announced details of it in the West, right?

    Well, PSO v.2 had the same thing.

    If there is a fee for the US, which right now I'm doubting, then it will be pretty small. Japan's online market is MUCH smaller than the US

    That really doesn't make sense too have an additional fee for a pack in title.

    It does if you don't expect to sell enough to keep your network supported

    Also, telecommunication fees are astronomical in Japan
    The original PSO also required you to pay

    Well for these MMPORG games it can be expected no doubt. I mean Sony's supposedly free for 1st party online system is charging a monthly fee for Everquest on the PS2. Sony makes Everquest right?

    Can we be sure that you need to subscribe to LIVE to get online with PSO? It'd make sense that you don't have to and that MS is anticipating this. So they realize the Japanese want to play PSO but wouldn't be as interested in LIVE so they just give them PSO instead.
