Sony Online Entertaintment, the branch of the company that deal with the MMO side of things, is considering a single subscription plan for all of its titles. The news comes from John Smedley via a post on Reddit discussing changes.
“We are considering (and are likely going to move forward with) a plan that means if you subscribe to one of our games you are a subscriber to all our games (this applies to PC titles only btw).. all for the current $14.99 a month. That’s a benefit most companies simply can’t offer because they don’t have our portfolio of games. The goal would be to let you pick an item in each game you play.
Some of you might say “well who cares..I only play Planetside 2. How is that a benefit to me?” My answer is simple – we’ve got a great lineup of games, some of which aren’t announced yet that cater to a lot of players. We have EQN and EQNL coming along with other….. games… that PS2 players might just like :)”
Currently this plan is limited to PC only and would cover games like Planetside 2, DC Universe Online and Everquest Next. The hint towards other games linked to PS2 could suggest a return of the Champions franchise. There were two Champions games with online capabilities on PS2, Champions Of Norrath, and Champions: Return To Arms.
