PS4: Publishers Can Decide If PS Plus Is Necessary For Free To Play Multiplayer

Sony's mandatory PlayStation Plus subscription for online play has raised a few hackles, but interestingly, a thriving free to play multiplayer ecosystem could happily exist without it.

“As far as free-to-play games are concerned, it’s a publisher’s decision whether they put it inside or outside of the PlayStation Plus requirements,” SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Polygon.

Several free-to-play games have already been confirmed for the PS4, including Planetside 2 and Warframe. The former will probably require PS Plus since it's developed by SOE, but here's hoping that players who don't shell out for a PS Plus subscription will still be able to enjoy a fantastic selection of multiplayer games.
