So I might get a PS4 sometime soon, and my question is simple. Do I need to have a Playstation plus membership to play online? (like xbox live) I was looking somewhere and it said Playstation plus gives you extra things, but it didn't say if you need a membership to play online and whatnow.

Yes, Playstation Plus is required for the majority of online play.

There are a handful of games that are exempt from needing Playstation Plus (these are usually free-to-play games with their own servers, like TERA). But, unlike the PS3/Vita, you do need Playstation Plus to play multiplayer on the vast majority of games (practically all that have a physical copy).

You are required to have PS+ to play PS4 games online (except for Free to play games). They have discounts and free games (monthly) for PS+ members but most of the time they are useless. The only things i found worth buying from the PS store are some of the games they have during their $5 flash sale. The games on PS store are cut throat in comparison to the in store. $40-$48 in store vs $60 on PS store!. Digital only games will stay full price for 1-2 year later!!. of which you can find install for $20 or less. They will have a monopoly on pricing when all games going digital . I think a $40-$60 game 1-2 year after release will be the new normal then.

They will have FREE to play online weekend every now and then They probably think it's some special event.. .

I don't play online much. I just take advantage of the free days offered for PS Plus and that's about it.

Nowdays, i don't play online too much, mainly because i don't have enough time expect for the weekends. Still, it's great to have PS+ just to get discounts for digital games (i'm really not interested about that), to back up your save files to cloud and so on.

Without Playstation Plus you can't really do much. Unless you have a PS3 where you can play online for free.

One you get a few free games a month and yes you’ll need it to play online! Also a steady internet connection service with decent speeds! Found out after being off line and trying to rent a game a update can be needed to play offline as well! That surprised me!

to be honest, games have so much that you don't need playstation plus, however, some games and/or if you want to play with other players you're going to need it. it's unfortunate that PS did this, most ps3 games you didn't need PSP in order to play with online people. but, they got to make their money somehow, just like any business. but there are games you don't need that, simply figure that out by the game itself. a bit of researching should do it. although there are times you can get a discount on PSP, around the holiday time and sometimes some gaming stores will sell a discount, you get a code, plug it in and you're good to go. a bonus to PSP is more games, more excitement, so it's worth it. about the price of a game and you have access to benefits that regular members don't have. it's a thought for future fun I hope.
