I don't want to believe it, but everyone in my town is saying you have to have playstation plus to play online. I'm like no why would they do such a thing.. But i'm starting to second guess my-self... Is this really true? Are we going to have to pay to play online? I wouldn't think so cause it seems Playstation plus and PS4 are kinda 2 different things

Sony's online is sad compared to XBL. In order to compete with that they would have to charge a small fee in order to do all the necessary upgrades. If I had the choice of playing for free and keeping what we have now for an online service with Sony or paying $50 a year and getting a much better online service and free games and a ton of new features I'll gladly pay the small fee.
Online gaming is now huge and a big part of console gaming and what we are offered should have a lot of great features but that just can't be done w/ a free service. This is not 15 yrs ago when playing online did not offer much, now it can be so much more but we can't expect Sony to foot the entire bill to give us that.
