If you recently purchased a Playstation 4, and are into online gaming, you may have noticed something weird about the online gaming platform. With the new PS 4 console, Sony has changed their online gaming model: owners of the new console will have to obtain a Playstation Plus subscription in order to play online games at all. This is different from the earlier systems, where the only requirement was having an account on the Playstation Network.
Naturally many gamers have been left flummoxed, scratching their heads and trying to figure out just what Playstation Plus is. If you’re confused in any way, this article should help straighten things out for you:
Playstation Plus is an online service that connects you with the massive online gaming community that the Playstation Network has to offer. That’s not all, though; purchasing a PS Plus subscription also gives you access to free games and discounts, as well as rewards for loyal Playstation fans. Here are the benefits of having a PS Plus subscription:
Free Games: Playstation Plus members receive a wide range of free games, from the stellar “Hitman: Absolution” to the cult hit “Thomas Was Alone”. These games are playable as long as your Playstation Plus membership remains active. Members can expect to receive up to 6 free games every month across the PlayStation 3, 4 and Vita Platforms.
Discounts: PS Plus members receive discounts to some of the biggest games available on the Playstation Network. These discounts easily accumulate to give you your money back and so much more.
Exclusive Access: As a PS Plus member you receive early access to exclusive betas like “Playstation All Stars Battle Royale” and demos such as “Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time”.
1 GB of Cloud Storage: You also get access to cloud storage of up to 1 GB. This gives you ample space to save your games if you have multiple consoles or just want to back up your saves.
If your Playstation Plus subscription ever expires, no need to worry! All you have to do is renew your subscription, and all your downloaded content as well as games are accessible again – with no content lost!
