Sony PS4 PS Plus features overview

If you haven’t subscribed to PlayStation Plus yet, but have always wanted to and are definitely considering it over Sony’s plans to charge for PS4 online multiplayer, we have a very useful video for you to watch. It gives an introduction to how PlayStation Plus will work on the upcoming console, now that Sony has also confirmed the excellent news that PS4 PS Plus will carry over from existing subscriptions on PS3.

That means that existing subscribers who are paying $4.99 a month or $50 a year will also be able to get access to an instant game collection on PS4, with a special edition of Drive Club confirmed as the first freebie. This is on top of other free PS4 games that will be coming per month, along with various discounts on other digital titles and of course early access to future PS4 beta testing as well.

PS3 owners who have been members for a long time will say that it’s worth every penny, but those who are unfamiliar with how it works may still be skeptical – especially since this is the first time that Sony will be asking for a monthly fee for online gaming.


The video above from the guys over at PlayStation Access provides you with a friendly introduction, giving you an idea just what your subscription will include should you decide to opt in. Don’t forget that if you don’t want to pay for PS Plus on your PS4, you’ll still be able to play free-to-play games online, receive background updates automatically and view other online services like Netflix as normal.

It seems like many consumers do not mind paying for PS Plus as part of PS4 online multiplayer, but we hope that Sony will use the cash to make the overall PSN more stable, more smooth and less prone to going offline for maintenance periods as we have seen all the time on PS3.

Are you willing to sign up for a new PS Plus subscription when PS4 arrives? Does the price per month bother you, or not so much when you are getting free games on top?
