PS4: Social Features, Online Media Services Free To All

Sony's decision to step in line with their competitors and make subscribing to Playstation Plus mandatory for online multiplayer has been a controversial move, but Sony UK MD Fergal Gara has revealed that not having PS Plus won't mean restricted access to social features and online movie service.

*cough* Netflix on Xbox *cough*

"If you choose not to subscribe we are still gating relatively little in many senses, so access to online catch-up TV and online movie services sit outside of the gate, for example,” he said.

“The social features of PS4 and PS4 games sit out of the subscription servic,. things like auto-updates on PS4 sit outside of PlayStation Plus, so we’re trying to be as balanced and as fair as we possibly can.”

Sony have also said that it'll be up to publishers whether or not they want to bring F2P multiplayer under the PS Plus subscription. [Videogamer]
