PS4 requires PS+ for multiplayer - Page 2

post #11 of 18
If you honestly can't afford $5 a month, you've got some serious budgeting concerns to work out in your life. If you can't see the reasoning and the value of paying monthly for PS + or Live, then you just need to stick with PC gaming and stay out of console threads.

I didn't play that many PS3 games online anyway, and I never even kept my firmware updated consistently. Its been about a year since I've even been online on my PS3. The only 2 games I really used to play online was Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. PS+ is something I can live without. So basically, I'm not paying for it. Not because I'm cheap, but because I don't need it.

The instant game collection alone makes the PSN+ sub worth it. Since I currently own both the ps3 and ps vita I have at minimum 18 free games available to me at all times for download with new games coming and going every month. And once downloaded you can delete and redownload them at any time even after they leave the IGC as long as you are a PSN+ subscriber. So thus with me being a day 1 subscriber I have well over 60 games available to me for download. To bad my hard drive can't hold them all.

Plus they already announced Drive Club being free for PSN+ day one of the PS4 launch plus 1 more game every month. Plus PS3 and Vita will still continue to get games as well.

The cost without catching a sale is $49.99 a year (or $4.17 a month). There are often various sales like currently you can buy it for $40 from Best Buy. The will also often run promos like xxx game free with a 1 year sub or buy 1 year get 3 months free. And even if you have say 6 months left and you buy a 1 year card you can still add it to your account and it will stack with your current sub.

So anyone who complains about this is freaking nuts. This coming from a person who barely plays any online multiplayer. The freebies alone are worth it. If you decide you don't want to play online and not want the games and thus sticking to single player, guess what you don't need to buy it. Plus netflix and other paid services will still work just fine without it.

Along with electricity, water, gas, mortgage, and internet, it just becomes another bill. I've already decided since yesterday not to buy their console. I'm choosing not to give them any more of my money. The free games are cool, sure. But like I said earlier, I only play 1 game online on my PS3 now. I just hope to finish Dark Souls before it becomes barren of soapstone signs.. I would've bought the PS4 for the exclusives. Not only Sony exclusives, but console exclusives too. Although the Xbox 360 was cheaper, Microsoft made that money back through XBL subscriptions. I assume Sony is doing the same thing for the same reason. Of course people are going to jump at it and defend Sony for their decision and attack anyone who disagrees (as I can see here already). I hope at some point maybe 3 or 4 years from now Sony will change their minds about it. I didn't buy a PS3 until 2011, so I can wait tongue.gif

OC your i5-760 and upgrade your vid card. Boom, Battlefield online for free, and you get to use a mouse + kb.

It's already overclocked but I'm planning to upgrade my entire system to a 3570K and a 670 and other stuff. But if my budget allows I'll push for 780 if possible.
I have to actually start putting in good parts in my system now since I'm going PC this gen. I'll buy The Last of Us and that other game on PS3 though.

I rather not have to be forced to pay for it, but oh well, at least you get a lot of things in return.
