Publishers Decide Free-To-Play’s Fate

The only negative from Sony’ press conference was when they announced that players would need PlayStation Plus to play games online on the PlayStation 4. However, in a recent revelation it was announced that publishers will actually decide whether or not free-to-play games will need PlayStation Plus to play online.


According to Polygon, SCE Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida confirmed this. He also revealed that Sony Online Entertainment has already made a decision that its MMOs won’t require PlayStation Plus in order to play online.

To date, the free-to-play games which won’t require PlayStation Plus on the PlayStation 4 are: DC Universe Online, Warframe, Backlight: Retribution and the highly acclaimed PlanetSide 2.
