PS4 needs PS Plus to play online
Hidden in Sony’s press conference last night was the fact that a PlayStation Plus membership will be required to play online multiplayer on the PS4.
The announcement was made while talking about PS Plus benefits on the PS4. While it wasn’t said outright, Sony noted that those without a membership will be able to play single player games still without a membership.
Those that already have a membership will be able to automatically have one on the PS4 when it launches later this year for $399.
