Capcom have revealed their plans to introduce as many as forty new PlayStation Network titles over the next few months, comprising a selection of original PS1 titles that have been ported over to the newer Sony consoles, and PSP games now available for download. According to Capcom's Chris Kramer, users themselves will play a part in choosing which titles will be available first.
Sony has confirmed that it plans to continue to provide free network services for Playstation owners. Playstation has said that they are looking at "how we can provide a service without people having to pay." Advertising has been suggested as one possible way for the company to fund content without charging users.
If you've ever gone in search of an Xbox Live points card, you probably haven't had much difficulty finding one, as they are in stores everywhere.

This review is going to be short for one reason, and one reason only: there’s not much to say. PlayStation Now works, and it works great, but until its pricing model is changed to be more like Netflix, I can’t imagine Sony having a massive amount of success with it. Not because it’s not worth the price, mind you.
The Destiny Beta has begun, and just like clockwork, the PlayStation Network - aka PSN - is down. Due to high volume created by what we must assume IS the Destiny Beta release, PSN is experiencing "Connectivity Issues." You can see the official post via PlayStation Support - if you can access it - which suggests that you Try Again Later.
