Well, this is pretty funny. One of the biggest call-to-arms of the PlayStation 3/4 is it’s free to play online, but now it’s been confirmed that you must have purchased a $50 subscription to PlayStation Plus in order to use the online gaming features of the PlayStation 4.
“PS4 gamers who aren’t Plus members can still enjoy single-player games for free…and access to media services won’t require Plus”

Small potatoes. Going to be auto-renewing my PS+ subscription anyway. I love the discounts, free games, and early betas. Getting to play games online is just ancillary to PS+ for me. In fact, the other day I was looking through my download list and realized I had so many games I had forgotten I had.
“Wait, when did I buy Psychonauts?”
