The only thing that requires PS+ is online multiplayer.

Look at the first post, more so the PS+ area.

 

Personally HATE these topics (threads)... literally opens the door to the two trolls on this forum...

That's odd, don't you need PS+ to also have access to free, or discouted games that you can download?

Please check the Mega PS4 thread in the link above...

 

Free 2 Play Games do NOT require PS+ (Xbox One requires Gold to play f2p)

Discounted games do not require PS+, you just get deeper discounts (no PS+ = 30 - 40%, PS+ = 50 - 80%)

Now "Free" games through PS+ are just a perk you get, amount varies, that's it.

That's more of a feature of PS+ itself.

 

Not something that PS+ is required to use.

 

There's a difference.

50-80% game discounts for a PS+ membership sounds like a worthwhile investment, if the games are reasonably popular.   

 

I suppose I can always start without and browse the selection and then make a choice on a membership. 

Thanks for the info.   and links.  I'l cross my fingers when it comes to Sony's commitment to compressing these files to manageable sizes.

Of course all plus perks like free games require you to remain a subscriber, with the exception of the discounted games,, those you keep. Regardless if your a member or not..

Psn+ is required to play multiplayer games(except for f2p games like war frame)
