[ArsTechnica] PS4 owners will need PlayStation Plus subscription for online multiplayer - Page 6

post #51 of 186
There is no question that PS + offers more for the money compared to Xbox live, but alot of people are missing the point , you are being forced to pay fee to play online not the other way around which is free. So i suggest that Sony should let people play online for free as they do with Ps3 and let people decide if they want to upgrade themselves

If you honestly can't afford $5 a month, you've got budget and job concerns you need to work out before you play video games in the first place. If you can't see the value...well, have fun PC gaming then.

They could, and I hope they do, but I hold little hope that they will.

anti used/rented policy can always be made by the developer. We see this with bf3 online codes.

 

It can, but then it's in the software, not the hardware. Also with codes as it is currently it's only the multiplayer/online features that are restricted. Friends can still borrow and play single player without restriction. I actually didn't mind this as games still held value, if you were trusted by your store owner you could get a better trade in price, and if you liked the game enough to want to put time into multiplayer you could do so later at your own expense.

 

It was a system that initially people disliked, but I don't think it was such a bad one if I'm honest. It certainly doesn't hurt the used game market while still  allowing developers & publishers a piece of the pie.

 

Remember that each game traded in can go toward a new game. It's important developers and publishers remember this also.

Kinect always on... I find it amusing that people become paranoid about this. I just want to have my console always ready for when i want it. Remember those boot then wait 10min for update (ps3/xbox 360) mad.gif

 

I prefer having a choice. I was never interested in it for the Xbox 360 and I'm not interested in waving my arms around in front of my TV with the Xbox One.

 

Also with all the current stuff going around about the NSA I wouldn't be surprised that people are a little paranoid about it. The fact that the potential is there is what is concerning.

I wonder if the cable tv option will be available outside of the USA or at least come soon to canada lol.

 

That's going to depend on each region.

For the PSN becoming not free, it suck, i have always been jealous of my friend getting multiplayer free.. Don't even start about the free games and other stuff that nobody care. People want multiplayer!! I only buy my xbox live membership for when a new halo come out thumb.gif

 

PSN wasn't the most reliable service as a free service. With the extra money if Sony makes a solid and reliable service, with good features to rival Xbox Live then it will be worth that little bit extra.

I think Sony is well aware what they need to do and NOT have another outage like back in 2011

lol you make it sound like Microsoft invented the hard disk drive. We have those since the '60s rolleyes.gif it's just that consoles are way too behind in everything.
Your right, they didn't, but they also didn't try to rip you off like Sony and charge $35 for an 8meg memory card. If its new to the medium, it's still new.

Get a job and pay for it....
Dont know ill pay inorder to have servers around the world up and running to play these games whenever i want...
thats why i donate to many servers around the world anyways for fps games through steam and source...just get a job pay the subscription and enjoy online gaming
its that simple...then again most dont have jobs that can afford these consoles in the first place so why complain about it

People have been paying for live for years and no one complained. Hell live is only $10 more when you buy the year instead of doing monthly. I'm buying myself a PS4, but I can't and won't complain about having to pay $5 a month.

Well they know that most gamers will buy the PS4, based on the Internet's reaction to the Xbone so they know they can do this. Will be a better console than the Xbone still IMO, but you can't have it all I guess.

Sony marketing is run by a bunch of idiots....

As a long terms PS+ subscriber I think they should have left multiplier free but not allow used games as what Microsoft is doing..otherwise Microsoft is gonna get all the exclusive games. EA is already moving towards Microsoft with more exclusives.

Free online play is what made ditch my Xbox360 and get a PS3 and then finally I saw the value in PS+ and subscribed for 1 year and then extended to 3 years when they had the sale.....but forcing people to buy PS+ to be able to play online is just a stupid move.

And F^%$ used games trade. If you like better games then support the developers...why would gamestop and EB games make 900% profit out of my $60 purchased game and $20 million game development budget that went into making the game? If you not happy with the game you bought then maybe you should have played the demo or watch a couple of reviews before. And if you pre-ordered the game for some bonus gun or skin then sorry to say but you need to rethink your strategies in life....

I am not concerned with the money but it is pretty annoying if you stop playing for six months and want to play again to try it out again you need to pay into the service and fill out all . As long as their is a free month after spending 6 months idle I am fine with this.
