PS4: auto-update, social features free to all users - Tuesday, June 18, 2013 10:49 AM ( #1 )
Some PlayStation 3 features currently restricted to PlayStation Plus subscribers will be free to PlayStation 4 owners.


Speaking to , SCEE UK & Ireland MD Fergal Gara said auto-update, which is currently available only to PlayStation 3 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription, will be free for all PlayStation 4 owners. 

He also noted that the console’s “social features” will not be restricted to subscribers – possibly including the .
“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.” 

A PlayStation Plus subscription is required for online multiplayer on the PS4. Current subscriptions will automatically include PlayStation 4 content. PlayStation Plus also provides free games, discounts and access to exclusive content.

All I want is a console for $99, with two wired controllers, A/V cables, a free game, and no online.

I hate the term apologist, but you really fit that definition. An apologist for this paid online crap.  Remember bro, it's only 5 dollars a month. Remember bro, it's only 10 dollars a month. Remember, it's only 20 dollars a month. Remember, it's only a subscription console. Remember, remember.

I'd wager you were a PS3 fanboy and said the exact opposite about Xbox 360's LIVE policies... you know you did.
