    What makes you guys think it'll be actually like PS+ on PS3? It's giving the whole audience unlimited games. Do you guys really think you'll get on PS4 what you get right now? loled. They are gonna charge extra money for the 'serious' games like Hitman Abusoltion for example the PS+ got last month.
    Besides that it's totall bullshit Sony forces people like me for example who doesn't want all of those games to pay for online and 'get' all of this free stuff. I don't want it why the fuck do they force me to buy it? They should change this policy like microsoft did on the DRM policy or however it's called. I was totally dissapointed from Sony when they annoucned it. I only want multiplayer, not all of this free bullshit. Fuck you, Sony

    I have no problems with this if they expand the features of PSN to have stuff Live has had like Party Chat and so on. If it's going to be the same service, no bueno, but if this allows for more services to be offered, I have no problems with it.

    I'm on my second year with PS+ and it is awesome, with free games like Sleeping Dogs and BF3 it already paid itself!

    So I don't see the problem with them having us to get PS+, it is worth it. They need to put the stuff that Live has like Fluke said. Expand it.

    With the beast that the PS4 is, I hope this happens.

    Can't lie having to pay to play games online was the main reason I didn't get an Xbox, but now seeing what all comes with the PS+ membership I'll be signing up to play because I'm damn sure getting that Battlefield 4 the game looks AWESOME!!

    I can understand their decision. I don't know why I don't have PS+ already because I hear awesome things from it.

    That's the publisher's decision.

    Party chat is already built-in to the PS4's OS - you don't need PS+ for it.

    Additionally, it's apparently up to the developers if they want you to pay a fee (PS+) to play their MP. Some games don't require PS+ for it, like Resogun and some other games.

    PS: The reason the PS3 didn't have Party Chat in the first place was because it was heavily limited on RAM. The PS3 had around 512MB, half for the OS and half for software like games (now it's more like 150MB for the OS and the rest for software - with the Slim and Superslim models). As a result of this, the PS3 was pretty fast when it first released as it didn't have much going on but now you see issues like slowness when connected to the PSN/SEN and the occasional freeze. The PS4 has 8GB of unified memory, meaning it has no restrictions.
    PSN/Steam ID is Icaraeus / 2 PS3s - 60GB 1st Gen YLOD'd 7 years, | 120GB Slim, 22 Games + Ton of Extras / PS4 500GB + 14 Games/ $1200 SuperPC since Feb14

    If PS+ transfers from PS3 to PS4, then I best buy a year's worth for PS3 ASAP!

    It does. Just like the Vita, if your PSN account is a PS+ subscriber all your PlayStation products can take advantage of the service.

    I don't see the big deal about this. It's just $18 for three months, just set aside some money if you're a big multiplayer guy for PS4.

    Still gonna wait a year or so to let the console and its features settle in, especially because only one of the exclusives (inFAMOUS Second Son) appeals to me.

    It's a pain in the ass having to get PS Plus to play the MP, I struggle as it is to save up money for new games.
