A big reason for gamers picking a PS3 over an Xbox 360 back in the day was for this: Free online multiplayer. But, that's no longer the case today in 2019 with both the Xbox One and PS4 where we have to pay a premium of 60 USD per year to play with our friends. This honestly shouldn't be the case.

Consoles are built for gaming and to connect with people through games. Online multiplayer is literally a part of the games we buy, but that is locked behind a paywall on consoles when it shouldn't be. If this isn't the case on steam and Xbox Live on PC, why is it on consoles? It makes no sense. People already pay 60 USD for one game each, 300 for the console+a controller, and maybe some extra for accessories like new headsets, controllers, etc. We've already paid for our console and games, what else do we need to pay for? Exactly, nothing. 

Online multiplayer should, and needs to be free. It's a part of the games we play and it shouldn't be locked behind a paywall. Paying to play online multiplayer with friends is a major rip off, especially when you buy a console and games to do that.
