    PS4 PlayStation Plus Details: Cross Game Chat doesnt require the service

    We have some new details on PS Plus for the PS4. It will be required to play online but not for free-to-play games or MMOs. One subscription will grant access to all accounts on that system.Cross game chat and other media functions wont require the subscription. This includes services like Netflix.
    Games will be added and removed just like the current subscription on PS3 and you will be getting one new PS4 game every month. Its not clear whether it would be a PS Plus edition like DriveClub which has altered content.
    The subscription isnt required for automatic updates. It will cost $59.99 or $5 per month. Its something you pay for PS Plus already on PS3 so it really isnt a surprise.
    The PS4 will be released sometime later this year and according to some retailer listings in Europe, it could be out on November 13.
    Check out the video below by PS Access which goes in-depth into the subscription for PS4.

    It's interesting but not surprising how a lot of PlayStation fans scrunched their mouths up in accepting silence when it was noted that online gaming requires a paid subscription. Regardless this is pretty good of Sony, and it's another perk in their favor over Microsoft and the XB1. PS3-only owners may not realize how useful and fantastic CGC really was.

    CGC is awesome. What is even better, is to be able to have a conversation with a friend in a public CoD match in freaking private!

    Thats good news. Its a handy feature that I enjoyed on the 360. Except now it wont be behind a paywall on the PS4.

    I think this all sounds really cool and I'm looking forward to it. The ONE thing I want to do though is change my PSN ID so I don't have my name as my online ID in games! If they don't allow this I assume I'd have to just use the same (and thus have my current trophies and stuff come over as well) or I assume I'd have to terminate my PS Plus membership and make a new account with a new name and THEN subscribe to PS Plus? C'mon....let me change my frikkin' name. Maybe make a new "screen name" field so the account can stay the same but I can change the name that pops up in online multiplayer games. It's the 21st century...we should be able to do this!

    All you have to decide is what to do with the time give to you....

    Shows they aren't using servers for voice chat. As if any proof was really needed.

    This is the heart of it. Cross game chat is a bit of a misnomer because for me at least, the point is to have a stable, private line open between you and friends in the same game. So you don't have to rely on the in-built voip (which is often atrocious) and can talk without gaps such as when you're inviting to squad etc.

    Wait I thought you need PS+ to play online. What's the point of having cross-game chat if you aren't going to play online?

    Because if I'm playing Killzone campaign and my buddy is playing Infamous we can still chat. You dont need to be playing MP games to use it.

    For F2P-games, MMORPG's or if you want to talk with other people while playing offline? Also, they can't charge for something they aren't hosting.

    Requirement for PS+ is for the online multiplayer aspect of it. There are still tons of social integration aspects of the console that they would like everyone to see and then maybe that will get them to buy into the PS+ program. Especially with all the free games that you get. You get 2-3 day one with PS4

    Good news, but i will gladly pay 5$ a month for PS plus,the amount off stuff you get is a great value,who can complain to get free games for free right,and it ain't old games you get,I think Sony is doing everything right with PS plus,nowhere you get all this free games for lousy 5$ a month.And it's even better if you own a Vita as well.

    Very cool!
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    The only thing I disagree with is the price the article is claiming for ps+. During the conference they said under $5. We'll $49.99/12months = $4.16 was sony really suppose to say for 4.16 a month? No, they rounded it to an easy to think about number $5 so for LESS than $5 a month($4.16 is you buy a full year) you can have this service.

    Also Joystick had an article saying the price for plus will remain the same.

    Just look at this month a little for people in the US. XCOM: Declassified, Saints Row: The Third. Just a couple of upper tier production games that if you didn't have a chance to play before you are going to be able to play now. Just for being a subscriber.

    I'm over in Europe,and we have Uncharted 3,XCOM,Rayman Origins,Kingdoms of Amalur,Ico & Shadow of colossus,Demons souls and Catherine for free,and some Vita games.Its crazy to not be a subscriber to PS plus if you like games.

    Not the same thing. It's also funny that they're giving CGC for free...which was touted by Xb gamers as a feature they'd pay for.

    They're not charging you in the same way MS did last generation, completely different. Look into it in depth and you'll realize why. I'll give you a hint that will likely happen though: Dedicated servers.

    It would be stupid if it was behind the paywall because it's free on the Vita.

    I think that the only reason that Cross game chat is free is because free to play games don't require PS Plus.

    Think about it... ...it would be weird if people playing free to play games could not take advantage of this just because they don't have PS plus.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!
