The details about the Sony online network have been left rather unclear so far by the electronics giant. Reuters runs now a story with information on plans by Sony Online Entertainment to launch Station Launcher in July.
Station Launcher is supposed to provide single access to several of Sony's PC based online games like EverQuest, The Matrix Online, Star Wars Galaxies, PlanetSide and EverQuest II. Apparently you would be able to play all 5 games for $24.99 a month.
The Sony online service will provide consolidated identity, chat, friend lists and downloads of updates and previews.
A Sony spokes person is quoted saying that this service is not stopping at the PC, meaning this kind of service will extend to the Sony PS3 and possibly also to the Sony PSP. Sony already offers the Station Access subscription, which was at $21.99/month and will be increased to $24.99/month on June 1st.
Of course Microsoft's Xbox Anywhere sounds much stronger and much more mature compared to what Sony is currently cooking up.
