15 replies 9056 views Edited Jul 3, 2013
Sony revealed that online mutliplayer on ps4 would require ps plus membership for a year very similar to the xbox live service.I don't know whether this applies to ps4 only or in the future ps3 and vita will also be requiring the sane paid ps plus membership for online play?

I already have Playstation plus for a year, so if they make changes to the Playstation 3 online in the near future then I am ready for it.

Yeah I'm pretty sure this is only going to effect the PS4. PS3 should always be free as long as they continue to keep the servers alive.

  ps4 mp does not requre  psn plus to function  Mp out right.  there is a  basic side with  free mp gmes to play for thse who dont have the resources or funds to buy  psn  plus nor want to buy it on ps4..

 

 the basic side mp games will be  on the dev of them, psn+ is sub scribtion plan its not maniditory thing to play MP on ps4 out right.. While alot of devs will be using that way ,, not all of them will be.

Sony has said so far that they have no intentions of requiring PS+ for the PS 3 or the Vita. It's only for the PS 4 and it's up to developers to require it as well. Such as the free to play MP games (like DCUO). Same would apply to any paid MMOs like FF XIV.

 

At least that's my understanding of the whole of it.

I would like to take this moment to encourage use of the search function. Which can be found in the upper right of the forum. That is all, carry on.
