No It is entitlement, you are assuming that since its been free up to now that it should remain so for the foreseeable future.

But you fail to understand that costs are increasing.. Eventually it would of had to happen..

No, we must not do same.

I'm for people having their own opinions on the PS plus/PS4 deal, but really, you shouldn't be trying to recruit others based on your feelings against it.

Maybe people like the idea of paying for a more enhanced network? Personally, I have PS plus, and I think it's a great deal. 

 

To me, it's not about the cost of paying for it. Just look at what you get in return, and free games never hurt, did they?

Plus, who doesn't want a more stable online network. I know I sure do.


Enhanced how? I see no point in Sony putting Online play behind a PS Plus sub other than pure greed!


That's your personal opinion.

But it's been stated several times already, in many complaint threads such as this on why it's being enhanced.

Better servers, better game experience, overall good quality that we don't have on the PS3.

It's only MULTIPLAYER online you have to have PS+ for. Regular online should still be free (I think).


I think so. since publishers can choose if they force you to get PS+ for Online Multiplayer or not

 

but notices something... 

 

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. it's a upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game coming on PC, PS3 and PS4!

 

IS IT GOING TO BE FREE BECAUSE IT'S A MMORPG TITLE which you go online only. will it have a same fate with...Online Pass

Xbox live was more stable.. Before Sony started the psn+ service the online experience was spotty at best, it only started to really improve after psn+ was introduced

Which would have been the natural progression of the PSN anyways, you seriously can't compare the PSN of 2006 to the one of today. In order to survive and compete the PSN has to be an ever-evolving service. So putting up the natural progression of a service as an excuse for making the PSN not free on the PS4 is ridiculous.

Re: PS Plus on PS4

I wanted to resolve my confusion with PS+ required to play ONLINE MULTIPLAYER

 

Since Publishers can allows if they want their game to be free without PS+ or not (Mostly Online only/FREE-TO-PLAY) games such as DC Universe Online, Planetsiders 2, Warframe)

 

as i last replyed about Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, DO I NEED PS+ JUST TO PLAY THIS GAME ONCE ITS OUT ON PS4 VERSION? if so. then it's confirmed. Publishers can choose to make it total free or require PS+

 

Here's the list that uses Online Pass in the past-current (if Wikipedia still have all the list so far)


505 Games
Activision
D3Publisher
Electronic Arts (2010-2013) 
Sony Computer Entertainment (2011-2013)
THQ (-2013)
Ubisoft
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

 

since PS4 needs Plus to play online multiplayer...i say its going to be like Online Pass...expect you need PS Plus for it Smiley Tongue

That's an MMO and completely off the subject. Beside most subscription based MMOs eventually go F2P anyways.

Does it ever occur to you that they just can't offer it for free anymore.. With everything they are adding to the psn+ service on the ps4 , it would honestly surprise me if they were still able to offer online multiplayer for free...


Look your really beating a dead horse here. Look not everyone shares your views here. So you are not going to convince anyone here. So I would suggest that you move on.

I don't know if there is a PS4 version of FF14, but if there is it most likely would not require a PS Plus sub to play it.
