9 Biggest Necessities For The Next Generation Of Consoles

8. Free Online


Online costs next to nothing to run, and this has been entirely apparent for years. The PS3 had completely free online play and it was one of the most seamless experiences around.

Why on earth to do we have to fork out so much money just to play online games?

What has changed over the past few years to make it necessary for the PS4 to charge for online? Servers don't cost much, and neither do their upkeep. The only thing that has changed is Sony learning they could charge players for nothing to follow in Microsoft's footsteps - not to mention Nintendo doing the same this year for the first time.

The number of additional costs that keep getting piled onto game's is completely ludicrous. Show gamers you care about them, and give us online for free.

I like video games, writing and writing about video games. Expect sarcasm and the dry wit of a Brit. And the occasional rant of a unhappy Scot. You know... the usual.
