  ps4 mp does not requre  psn plus to function  Mp out right.  there is a  basic  side  with  free mp gmes to play for thse who dont have the resources or funds to  buy  psn  plus nor want to buy it on ps4..

 the basic side mp games willbe  on the dev of them, psn+ is sub scribtion plan   its not maniditory thing to play MP on ps4.. While alot willbe using that way ,, not all of them will be.


What do mean basic mp??


meaning a side that  has some restrictions. But allows you to play some mp  games allowed by the dev of them. Some function you wont have unless you get psn+.. But its not manditory to use psn+  for online games to play mp on the system out right.. But the majority of the MP games  and features will be on the psn+ side.. So in small you get slice of the cake, but if you  want  the whole cake get psn+.

 

But  boths side have  mp playing, one side just more of that in much bigger and bettter way for the gamer.

 

 Alot  think  a few of the MMO's will be free to play on the basic side , but not Final F 14.

I also agree with ExMimic on this. Just because PS+ will require to play multiplayer on the PS4 doesn't mean it will affect the PS3's multiplayer servers as long it only applies to the PS4 strictly.

Plan and simple that as others have said PS3 will be free multi player while PS4 will require a PS Plus subscription. Of course not every game or service will be PS+ required as its up to the developers of the game to make it required or not.

As said a billion times (Why do people keep making these threads?), it will remain 100% free on PSP, Vita and PS3. 

 

PS4 however, charges because of the added PS4 exclusive PSN features that the other systems dont have. (And contrary to most peoples belief, YES, sony pays for the servers, and the servers cost a TON of money. I dont blame them at all for charging).

Since both systems will use the same psn service and you can access your same account on the ps4 as well I seriously doubt they will keep difference between both consoles.

We can doubt it 'til the cows come home, but Sony's already said only PS4 will require PS+.

Yes we can use same account on both systems, but we'll need PS+ if we want online play for PS4.
