So PS Plus is still going to be a part of our lives be it on the PS3, the PS4 or the PS VITA, here's what was said.

 

PlayStation Plus WILL carry over to the PS4, so all of you (me included) who will be getting a PS3 & have a subscription running into 2013 will be able to have that same Subscription on your PS4.

 

A PlayStation Plus Membership will be one price for the PS3, PS4 & PS VITA, all for less than $5.00 a month!

 

PlayStation Plus has seen a 144% increase in Subscriptions with an average 95% satisfaction rate, some pretty good figures I'm sure you'll agree?

 

The IGC (Instant Game Collection) we're used to will with PlayStation Plus include for (FREE) the AAA title Driveclub, this will be a PlayStation Plus Edition of the game, also included with the PlayStation Plus Subscription will be a free game every month, these games will include 'Don't Starve' & 'Outlast',

 

On an slightly more interesting note it was said that to be able to play online with the PS4 you will be required to have a PlayStation Plus Subscription, so as long as you're a Subscriber to Plus you can play online, if you're not it appears that online play will be unavailable!

 

This is rather interesting news & will upset some & not bother others in equal numbers, online play was after all always free on the PS3, now it will not be!

  

Please take part in the Official PlayStation Plus Poll: PS+ Poll

 

So guys, tell us what you think?

Playstation 4 free online multiplayer plea

Feb 25, 2013

So I really have no idea if this has been spoken of in these forums before or not. I don't even really know if I'm posting this in the right place. However, I shall try to make my case quickly. I truly do wish that Sony makes at the very least online multiplayer with friends and strangers free on the PS4 like it is on the PS3. Sony detailed a lot of cool new features in their presentation last Wednesday, and a lot of them seem really cool. If these features were also free, that would be probably the best thing ever. Having free multiplayer would give you a big advantage against Microsoft, especially if the network were secure and mostly stable. I really do hope that Sony hears this and considers what I'm saying, as I want to share experiences with my friends online, and the only place I can do that is on the PS3 because it has free online multiplayer. If the PS4 doesn't have free online, I wouldn't be swayed to buy online multiplayer access because I wouldn't have my friends to play with. Please think about this, and whichever way it goes, I hope everyone all the best.

Multi-player will remain free and there are plenty of posts already about this if you bothered to search.

Stop panicking, basic online play will remain free, it will be other cloud-based servcies that may be part of a premium service.

SONY isn't Microsoft were they charge you for something you already paid buying the game. Relax, online gaming is always going to be free here.

A playstation plus edition of the game? that sounds like it's going to be a lesser edition than, like uncharted 3 & starcraft. Would like to hear what the ps+ edition means.
I see a lot of complaints coming about how you need plus to play games online on the ps4 though.

I think I like the idea of free online play, and PS+ is a waste of money that rarely has games I want.

RE-THINK SALAD

I'm already a Plus member until next year. I'm a bit bummed that it will work like Xbox Gold on the PS4. But if Kingdom Hearts 3 is one of the IGC games, I don't care how much Plus changes!!!

 

Will there be cross-play between PS3 and PS4? Will Plus games on the PS3 come to the PS4 as well?
