Sony dropped a bombshell earlier this week with the announcement that multiplayer will no longer be free for PlayStation fans, but not all games on the PlayStation Network will require you be a paying member, according to Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida.
Yoshida explained in a recent interview, when asked about possible scenarios and situations that would require you to be a paying PS Plus subscriber.
“You will need it to enjoy online multiplayer. This will also depend on the judgement by the publishers, and there will be some free to play titles that you’ll be able to play without needing a PS Plus subscription, like PlanetSide 2 and DC Universe Online.”
So there you have it. You can play free to play titles on PSN without the need for a subscription, but what fun would that be.
The PlayStation 4 is due to arrive later this year for $399.
