You only need PS Plus if you want to play online. You can still surf web, PS store, netflix ect. without paying extra.

 

Unlike XBone, where you need to pay for the gold membership to do anything online.

Yep. That is 100% true. You will need Playstation Plus if you want play games online on PS4. But there are some "Free-To-Play" games that will still have free online. Games like "DC Universe Online" and "War Thunder" and "Planetside 2" and "Warframe" and others. If a game is "Free-To-Play" then the online will be free, for all other games you gotta have Playstation Plus if you want to play online. Here is a E3 video where Sony talks about Playstation Plus on PS4.

JUST like Xbox you still have to pay to play. It's the same no matter how you are trying to sugar coat it.

Ignore the fact that you get that same value back in games for PS+ and go buy a pc, then.

Firstly, STOP SHOUTING.  Typing in all capitals is considered shouting and rude.

 

Secondly, someone has to pay to maintain the various gaming servers that bring you your online experience.  Nothing is free in  this world, or if it is, then it's of vastly inferior quality.  SONY has graciously provided the PSN servers at no extra charge, but believe me, you've contributed money to the network through the purchase of your console.

 

What would you prefer, a cheap console and pay for online, or a more expensive console and free online?

Free to play games are not behind the paywall, and developers have the option of not going through the PS+ multiplayer system, plus, all other online feature remain free for all, as does online for Vita and PS3. 

 

Sony is integrating online MP into PS+ to help allay the costs of a far more robust server infastructure. 

 

I really don't see a problem here.  Never have.  Let's not do this dance yet again, please.

We are hoping for improved servers for the additional cost but have no word on whether that will happen or not.  This issue has been discussed in very much detail in plenty of threads on the forum, use the search tool and you can do a lot of reading on what other people have to say about this.

Atari, Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, PS1, Sega Saturn, PS2, PSP, PS3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3ds and PS4
