Actually, for PS4 - you do have to pay for PSN to access most online features. PS3/Vita are the "free to access" systems still

PSN isn't free for Playstation 4, though. You can't play any multiplayer games without having PS+ when you own just a PS4.
Now if you have a Vita or Playstation 3, you can play online for free.
Some games "skirt" around this by having a paywall for their game (like FFXIV is free to play without PS+ because it's an MMO and you're paying a monthly fee). But if you're trying to play Street Fighter or Call of Duty multiplayer, you're going to have to shell out for the $60 a month PS+ on the PS4.

Like I said, these are the kinds of games that are free on PSN because they're MMOs. If you play any genuine game without any other paywalls, they're not free. If you purchase a game that has multiplayer and is not an MMO, you'll find that you need to pay for PS+ to access multiplayer.

These are just the facts. Sony kind of shifted away from the "everything is free" with the PS4. They've even raised the price recently to around $60 (from $50) per year.

This is a note the star trek online {which is free to play) page for PS4 has
"A federation of friends Make it so you’ll never be alone in the dark depths of space – go online with a galaxy of other players thanks to PlayStation Plus."

Maybe you used the 2 week free trial type of thing. OR when you played unknowingly when it was a free ps+ weekend. *shrugs*

I can confirm that you have to pay to play multiplayer online with a ps4 with the exclusions ninjitsuko has said though.

I mainly use ps+ to buy discounted games. I never touch the free monthly ones.

I own more ps4 games then i do xbox 360 games and I have had the xbox 360 since halo wars was released. lol

"gay" ? PS4 is free online?

and this how a fanboy flame war usually starts..

throwing jabs/insults while having no clue about the topic in question

beside free to play games.. if you want to play online on a PS4 you have to pay up..

and based on the data here

http://gematsu.com/2016/12/media-create-sales-112816-12416

Hardware Sales (followed by last week’s sales)

PlayStation 4 – 110,318 (33,859)
New 3DS LL – 53,414 (45,622)
PlayStation Vita – 20,141 (12,240)
2DS – 17,623 (18,158)
PlayStation 4 Pro – 8,032 (8,243)
New 3DS – 7,432 (6,955)
Wii U – 4,718 (3,493)
PlayStation 3 – 704 (623)
3DS – 368 (482)
Xbox One – 256 (778)
3DS LL – 92 (95)



The PS4 Pro didn't do so well..

I think a price drop might be coming sooner than expected-- maybe this is why Costco will not carry it

few people are buying it compare to the PS4 slim

It would be nice if you have data for NA region and not just Japan though



It's trending ahead of PS2 but that won't last. That said it'll probably end up breaking 100 million with price cuts putting it in the same league as the Gameboy, PS1 and Wii.

as long they can provide plenty of games for the system..

let see if the PS4 can dethrone the PS2 in sale number or not..


2019-2020 is when they will release the PS5 ?? some said 2018.. but that's too early imo..

I have my doubts there that it will sell an additional 100 million in its lifetime. It would need to average at least 33 million a year for the remaining 3 years of its life before the PS5 drops. Those are iPhone numbers and it's only selling half that now. It's still trending ahead of the PS2 now but this is the year the PS2 numbers exploded because of the price drop not to mention it sold very well into the PS3s life.

They didn't discontinue the PS2 until a few years ago i think.. a console system can go 10 year+ if people are still buying them..

they are still making PS3s despite PS4 has been out for 3+ years..

from the trend.. i think it's fair to give each system a 7-10 year cycle... so it might be close.. but then again 100 million mark might be more realistic--

i don't know how accurate the data provided by this site but at least it provides a generation idea for systems sold

with the DS doing so well.. i guess this is why Nintendo is thinking of cashing in on mobile gaming instead

Usually when a new system releases sales of the previous model fall like a rock unless the successor is poorly received like the PS3 and 3DS were. The Wii was already on a downward spiral when Wii U hit. Probably because the lack of games and functionality.

That said, the PS3 is still selling but in very small numbers. The numbers collapsed after the PS4 was released. It's hard to say what would happen after the PS5 is released.

The PS4 is popular with developers and gamers, has loads of functionality in Blu-ray and streaming. If it ever got the casual price tag of $200 and time I'm sure it could put up PS2 numbers. But that doesn't seem feasible these days.
