E3: Online Game Networks

Daily Wirelss has some tidbits from E3 about the coming console game networks.

From the post:

“When the PlayStation 3 launches, Sony will debut a new online game network that will allow video conferencing, micropayments for items in an online store, trading of game weapons, and much more.

Xbox Live is currently the leading video-game network for consoles. Xbox Live Silver is a free service that ships with all Xbox 360s and allows any Xbox 360 user with a broadband connection to get online. Gamers can use Xbox Live Silver to chat, download content and play certain games but does not allow you to play multiplayer games online.

Sony, unlike Microsoft’s multiplayer gaming network, says its online game environment will be free. Many observers say that online gaming will be the key to future growth of the console world.”

From the Xbox site:

“Premium Gold Packs include the following:

These Premium Gold Packs are available only at your favorite videogame retailer in a 3-month pack or a 12-month pack.”
