WHY ARE YOU FORSING PLAYERS TO BUY PLAYSTATION PLUS MEMBERSHIP TO PLAY ONLINE? THE FACT THAT WE DIDNT HAVE TO PAY IS WHAT GAVE YOU MOST OF YOUR COSTUMERS. THATS A SLAP IN THE FACE FOR ALL YOUR NEW AND RETURNING GAMERS. I FEEL THIS IS NOT NECESARY

Secretly you were paying for online back on PS3, whenever your friends/family got you games for birthday's or Christmas; there would be some occassional pass that went in there for someone to play online, but this was restricted to just one person, so the other had to pay to play online. So either way; someone is always getting screwed. Sony have now since done away with online passes; but have replaced it with PlayStation Plus. An app that was completely seperate to the rest of the PSN, back on PS3; but on PS4, it is now a main hub where the majority of Sony services will bypass through it, i.e. apps, social networking, streaming, cloud gaming and of course multiplayer.

 

Sony was always gonna have to up-the-stakes at some point for gamers; for their advancements to online socialising or whatever it is and what better way, than on a new console. Well look on the bright side; at least they won't have an excuse anymore, for why the online service are crap.

Before: Pay third party devs for a season pass because you're too cheap to buy new.
After: Don't give third party devs a penny, yet use their servers, but pay Sony for the privilege.

Some things make no sense :p

Like Laras said many games did already make you pay for an online pass (often when bought used).

Free to play games on PS4 will still be free, no PS+ required.

Networks and servers cost a lot of money to set up and maintain you expect a private company to foot the bill for this?

You're going to get free games for all of Sony's consoles so its not too bad is it!

i don't mind as long as they continuesly invest in it making it better and better

 

the current ps3 limits psn but looks like ps4 means psn can evolve and carry on evolving with the right investment

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?
