I would Gladly Pay a Online fee with no problem. It cost money to run and upkeep servers and i doubt people would do it for free. I come from the Land of PC gaming and Most Online multi-player games comes with a monthly free and that is for each game. So if you want to play multiple online it can get expensive So 50 bucks a year for all your online games and getting free games from PSN is a great Deal. Plus if you Go with Xbone you are going to have to Pay the same fee and i think you get less perks with their Subscription.
