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.


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.

 

You pretty much just answered why PS+ is required now. No offence to you personally, but you and everyone else who argues over/defends this topic are now what I call: a "Self-Entitled Gamer". Things change people, it is time to get used to it.


 Are you complaining about PSN or PSN Plus?  Because PSN will still be free on PS4, just not the multilayer online thing. You will still be able to access almost every app for free (even though you need to pay for Netflix and Hulu and such but that is payment to those companies not Sony.).


That was directed at Cross. He answered why Sony is requiring PS+ for online play, and then stated that it was an "excuse".

It's best if people just let threads like this get buried by other interesting thread's. The loud, vocal minority like attention and don't hold too much of a point to justify their arguments. Anyone who thinks $4.17 a month (or$50 a month) is too much for free games, early betas, automatic patches/updates/cloud saves/trophy syncs, huge discounts on sales ranging from 50-80% additional off, and now pay to play online for better/secure/updates servers really need a reality check. It makes even less sense for anyone who likes PlayStation Plus or is using it but still complain to make an argument whatsoever. Things can't always stay free forever, rising costs eventually would have done something to their online service. 

 

 The OP is again part of the loud vocal minority, millions of preorders of PS4 already tell me and others that they feel PlayStation Plus is a great value and are willing to pay for a great service. If 80 million users pay for Xbox live to play online but has less perks than PlayStation Plus, well than...

 

PS3 will be supported for years or at least it's 10 year cycle if you feel the PS4 is a problem for you. We'll move on and await your eventual presence, there's no denying you'll eventually get the console. 

 

I Will state these kind of threads are getting old, do you type of minority need a support group to cry it out. We'll call it the entitlement group study. What do you think...

Even if you feel slightly bad about it.

 

I did first of all... I was mad for a few weeks.

 

But... I guess. If we don't pay we'll have more maintenance and the maintenance is always at bad times... better service is something you probably pay for so I'll take my chances on that.

I don't see a problem that the PS4 will require PlayStation Plus in order to play multiplayer to enhance the service it has to offer. At least the planned policy won't affect the online service on the PS3 and Vita since the pay-to-play multiplayer applies to the 4. Heck, even I am considering about joining the service sometime in the future when I nab a PS4 of my own.

 

And one more thing you need to understand, recruiting others to cause an uproar because of PS Plus's new policy on the new console will get you to nowhere.

The way you people (yes, I said "you people") go about these topics is very unorganized and not well thought-out. I can appreciate your passion about the issue, but the fact is, it's not going to change.

Except for the fact that Sony has already said in the past the PSN was profitable in its current form.


Go play on PC, cheapskate. Sony gives us free games on PS+. Would you rather have free games or free online? Thought so.

I think a big lack of the uproar, is as others have mentioned. PS+ offers soo much more. Even without the online req, I have feel like I have gotten a GREAT deal with my membership.

Now I agree that is not a value for everyone, but that is why there is only a relatively small amount of grumbling. Many from the potential "uproar" crowd are sated by the other benefits.
