How about no?
people like you is the reason MS try pull that crap on us!!
People like me have yet to pay MS a dime for their gold subscription thing. Atleast I know that PSN+ will offer me something more then just ability to play online. the gold account also had all the xbox media features locked away behind it. atleast Sony still offers them for free.
This seems to be a trend. One irate, usually uninformed gamer posts a thread flaming Sony, and nearly every subsequent post in that thread is the rest of this community speaking out in support of Sony.
I *do* hope Sony is listening. Not to the gripings of a few, but to the voice of the many: we love PS Plus, and fully support a PS4 policy requiring it to play multiplayer games. In fact, I would gladly, gladly assent to such a requirement on the PS3!

If they did that, then "The Man" wins!
Really, fifty bucks a year is not a kings ransom, and nowhere in the industrialized world does anyone say "If only I had fifty American dollars, then I would live like a rich man". How long have users been playing online for free? By my count twelve, maybe thirteen years. You've had over a DECADE of free online service. That's more than you really deserve. It's beyond time you pay up, especially after making the claim you'd gladly pay for a better service. You got your wish. Now pony up and deal with it. If not, too bad. They aren't cutting you a break on XBox Live either.
MS has no more DRM on X1, how about you give up on PSN+ to play online?!!
That has nothing to do with PS+ requirement. If you cant pay $5 a month how can you pay $400 for the console?
Should i mention that PS+, for only $5 a month, gets you access to 16 free games? Way better than microsofts crap.
