E3 2013: PlayStation Plus Now Required For Online Play
It was coming, you can’t deny it. With all these new social features, TV (heh) and PlayStation Plus benefits, it was only a matter of time before Sony adopted a similar system to Xbox Live Gold. Being suspiciously excluded from the actually keynote, Sony have announced that PlayStation Plus will be required for users to play games online.
Thing is, that’s not essentially a bad thing. Now, more than ever, Microsoft and Sony have near identical online services. Both will offer free titles to gamers, with PS Plus subscriptions making the leap to the PS4. Although a subscription will be required for multiplayer, gamers can still utilise the new social functions without a PS Plus subscription.

Local pricing has yet to be announced, but straight conversions suggest a slight increase from the fee we currently have. But, yet again, does it matter?
