Play the free to play games. You won't need ps+ to play those online. There will be a heavy influx of these titles next gen.

There's nothing wrong with it, I think.

If you look at what features they're offering, you can clearly see why it'll now cost to pay for online.

It's not a force, or something Sony is telling you give your money too. If you don't want to pay, that's fine.

Here, read this article. It explains why PSN will no longer free going forward.

http://www.destructoid.com/sony-explains-why-you-ll-have-to-pay-for-online-with-ps4-256158.phtml

 

PSN is still free for PS3..... but not for PS4.

With everything that Sony is doing to improve the network, its going to cost MORE MONEY, and as a company thats not going to cut it any longer to keep things free. 

You only need Plus for MULTIPLAYER..... Apps like netflix and such will not be behind a paywall.....Some F2P games will require Plus but thats dependent on the developer. Planetside 2 and DC Universe are both F2P and do not require Plus for online.


With the many great benefits of having Plus..... larger discounts, free games, early beta access..... requiring it for online multiplayer is literally a non-issue.... the benefits are too great to ignore and NOT have it.

2013 people expect to pwn newbs on COD now only Hardcore gamers will play online (meaning no COD on PS4). An extra game a year for PS+ would like tiers but whatever.

But your already paying for plus. It's not like your having to pay to watch Netflix.

💥😤🔫 I don't get it. I truly don't understand the hypocrisy in that "MS doing it =Satanic evil mega bad/Sony doing it=angel farts and cotton candy sunshine rainbows and happiness".

Paying to play = paying to play. That's what it boils down to. It should be free. We already drop $400+ per console, (I'd rather pay $500-$600 for my console than $400+ $250 over the next 7 years). then $60 for every game we buy, not to mention accessories and controllers. If you can't figure out how to make a profit out of $2000+ per person every year, you really need a new person for the job. Seriously, how can you not figure out how to profit from 2 billion + dollars?

They would lose more customers charging $600 for the console, than charging for multiplayer.

@Absinthetic
Yes PS+ is better than Xboxlive, but to what extent? I get to "rent" games? Redbox 4 minutes down the road does that, and it only costs 1$.
People keep saying PS+ gives out "free" games "all the time", as well as "DLC". I've yet to see a single game that once I stop paying for PS+, I get to keep. Hell, I haven't seen a single DLC on there (may just have missed it).

Sony is adding new features....but I don't remember asking for any of them. So why should I have to pay for them if I don't want them? It's like a car company throwing in power windows and an automatic transmission right before I hand them my money, then saying "oh we thought you'd like those additions....it's only $400 more, just go ahead and pay us the extra,it's alright".
