[ArsTechnica] PS4 owners will need PlayStation Plus subscription for online multiplayer - Page 7

post #61 of 186
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.

AND be sure to have more than 60 fps

Oh no you don't. I can build a 900€ rig that will let you play most of the latest games at, or close to maximum settings with decent framerates.

Erm... Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't 900€ equal $1200? tongue.gif

Do you guys remember what you had for your $50 dollar dinner this time last year? Chicken? Steak? Where you went? NOPE.

Now, with that same amount, you could've instead been enjoying a years worth of multiplayer on a solid platform! I don't even know when my subscription began or ends, I just renew whenever....but it's few and FARRRRRRRRR in between.

Heh, every time I get drug out for lunch or dinner I always think to my self...we could have just ate hot pockets and I could have purchased a new game or more memory or a smaller HDD...something, for what this meal cost. Plus most often I don't even like the food.

This is no different and as long as the service doesn't stink...I would be fine with it. This probably helped them get the price down. Every one paid for the free PSN on the PS3 too...it was just rolled into the price of the console.

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....

god now I'm going to think the same thing -___- I do typically turn her down though when I see her eyeballing those mixed drinks. I'm not paying $10+ for some fruity drink to fill her up before her $16+ meal.

Women....lol, they hit you right in the wallet the hardest

Meh no biggie. Not the end of the world they're doing this and they have valid reasons to do it. Xbox live Gold hasn't been a ripoff. Paid for it when I wanted to use it and stopped paying for it when I didn't need it.

It does not in terms of hardwre. 900€ is roughly 950-1000 dollars at most (market wise). And you guys can get 3770Ks in Microcenter for the price we buy 3570Ks...
