    Yoshida: Making PS4 always-online was never considered

    Yoshida: Making PS4 always-online was never considered
    May 7th, 2013
    Posted By: Valay

    Over the past few months, there has been a lot of talk about always-online. Much of the discussion stemmed from rumors about the next Xbox, which was initially said to require a form of always-online connection in order to function. However, the latest conjecture indicates that users will be able to experience single-player titles, run Blu-rays, and watch live television without the Internet.

    With such strong speculation about always-online and how it relates to the next Xbox, one has to wonder if Sony ever considered this type of functionality for the PlayStation 4. That would be a no, according to Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. The company’s main reasoning is that “many countries don’t have robust Internet connections.”

    Yoshida explained to Game Informer:
    “Did we consider it? No, we didn’t consider it. The main reason being that many countries don’t have robust Internet connections. It makes sense for people to have Internet connections to play online games, but for offline games there are many countries that we saw do not really have robust Internet.”

    They talked about possible multiple tiers of online when PS4 was revealed so something will be free hopefully. I really think Sony did the smartest thing possible making multiplayer free and have extra stuff like PS+ have a fee and hope they do something similar for PS4.

    I'll wager a perma-ban that MP will remain free on PS4. Sony knows howmuch of a draw card that is to gamers.
