    Remember how Sony isn't about greed and is all about the gamer? That Sony would never do this? They swore online gaming would remain free? Hell has frozen over now hasn't it?!

    Microsoft got so much $#@! for charging for the privilege of playing online on general principle. Now the shoe is on the other foot. $#@! you Sony!...... (Sony throws them some free games)....er....um .. thanks Sony for totally helping me sell out! I'm totally on board now for paywall online gaming!

    Fine with this.

    Look, get off your high horse. The truth of the matter is that while yes PS gamers now have to pay a subscription, it's by far the best subscription available giving subs content accross three platforms and the value subs will get back in games takes away a large brunt of this unfortunate development. I don't think most people will mind seeing as they are getting Drive Club day 1. No PS gamer should be without Plus if they appreciate getting hundreds of dollars worth of full access to games.

    Nice that MS caught onto this practice and I'm sure Xbox gamers will enjoy playing AC 2 and Halo 3.

    I will miss being able to just pop a game in and connect online and play without having to pay, but Im willing to compromise with what the value is for the money. Plus it can only make the online game experience better. It worked for ms why shouldn't it work for sony? People would complain all the time about the ps3 online wasn't as good as xbl and stuff like that, and my reply would always be that I didn't have to pay to play online, so if you weigh out everything and you look at what you are getting, the price, the choice and freedom to share and play used games no drm restrictions im sold for the ps4...I just hope that it stays tht way and after ive bought my ps4 a few monthes down the road there isn't changes made to policy and features that hurt the system. But The ps4 is where it's at.

    It was summing up PS+ is as little as $5 a month depending on what option you do.

    We're not really okay with it...but what choice do we have now? After this (the current gen) a legion of people justified paying for p2p gaming and VOIP via XBL...why else do you think Sony did this?

    If $5 a month is a choice then I wouldn't see what the problem is. Some months you may not wanna pay but some you would like to pay. I see no harm in it.

    Umm remember the response to Xbox one DRM? Pretty sure if sony had that kind of response things may change.

    It doesn't work like that. I think you can get 3 months, 6 month and 12 month subs to the service. They just broke it down to weekly chunks to break down the price.

    Supr chuffed that PS+ will have Instant Game Collection for all three platforms. It has been damn good recently...Sleeping Dogs, Hitman, soon Unchatted 3, XCOM and LBP Karting. That's aside from the Vita games...and the fact that we will be getting new PS4 games monthly is awesome.

    Oh i see now. Well then I guess I'll be paying for online now, that is when I get a PS4. I'm never a first adopter of electronic products.

    always said that for Sony to grow revenues they had to go on and charge for online. Will be interesting to see what people say about this seeing that so many have given MS stick over Live's payments.

    Well at last you can buy a PS4 just for offline greatness. Games like FF15, KH3, Infamous 2 or Watchdog and AC4 donīt need online multiplayer. But it still sucks cause everyone was used to have the multiplayer free. It was a great selling point and a huge argument against Xbox Live Gold. Still PS+ have tons more value then XLG will ever have.

    Is not a bad incentive at all. I'm not thrilled that I have to pay to play online but I had plus for a while it was a great deal. Mostly mind of annoyed because I mostly just get a bug to pay some COD from time to time. Don't game online much. Although I understand why they did it. They could have done this from the start and it would have made sense. I'm sure it's not cheap to keep these networks up and running not to mention the maintenance.

    Yeah I fully understand the matter. Regardless I wasn't going to complain and put up a fuss about it anyway. By the time I get the ps4, i feel that getting ps+ will be no biggie for me. I'm cool with it
