CONFIRMED 1 PS+ account for multiple users

24 replies 959 views Edited Jun 11, 2013
One PlayStation Plus Account on PS4 Will Allow Other Accounts to Play Online on Same Console

The most disappointing reveal of Sony’s E3 was that you’ll have to subscribe to PlayStation Plus to play online on PS4, but now we can confirm that at least you only have to have one subscriber on your PS4 for everyone to play online.

If you share your console and have multiple accounts, each one will not have to subscribe to play online, Shuhei Yoshida confirmed on Twitter. Just one account must subscribe.

Of course, the news is still annoying for those that don’t want to pay to simply play online, but it’s better than what it could have been.

Also thanks to PSN User sensfan1971 for 1st bringing this article to our attention. I like this idea much better as 3 people play online on my system and $150 a year for PS Plus would have been just crazy to play. Glad to see we all can play for just $50. Lets hope people dot abuse it just like they did with game sharing. That's why the PS3 count dropped from 5 to 2 activations.

Can you play online with 2 consoles and one Plus account at the same time, husband and wife?

 

Also, the games are not free that come with a paid Plus subscription. They are rentals... and you pay a plus fee to use them.. 

 

Why would I want to pay for free game rentals with a plus account, that  will not be use or played..

 

A Tier system for online playing is needed  for different type of gamers. We are not all hardcore...

Still cannot believe Sony is trying to force full subscription to plus with unnecessary/unwanted features on every user.

 

And if Plus is doing so good, (as stated in the E3 briefing) Why change to Pay to play...

Time to go fishing...

If your account is also on your wife's ps3 and you are the PS Plus user then yes you should be able to play online together with 2 systems.

i think yes.... as once you have the plus account on  system it'll allow alll other accounts to be online....as long as you are 2 different accounts at same time not just the 1
