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.”
