PS Plus will carry over to the PS4, "Here to stay"

GB: This is kind of obvious, but if you end up buying a 12 month PS Plus subscription, you also get 3 months free, so the question now is that this will overlap with next generation where Sony’s PS3 successor will be most likely be released.

Can you imagine how rapid the ps4 purchase growth would be if you see a free ps4 game available for download!!?? that would totally lure people into buying one right away! :-D

jujubee881272d ago

It's a really great service.

This special deal where you can get a year + three extra months (for free) is great!

ConstipatedGorilla1272d ago

I'm usually a multi-plat guy, but time and money are becoming scarce for me lately. For this reason, I will be only buying PS4 initially because of all the free PS Plus content. I have so many free games downloaded on my PS3, it could keep me busy for months without ever buying a game if I wanted to. Such a good deal.

Having it day 1 for nex-gen is a HUGE selling point.

This service and many great exclusives will be the powerful drivingforce for the next Playstation.

There's a reason there's way more hype for the next Playstation than the next Xbox. But both are really anticipated!

Conzul1272d ago

I pretty sure we're more hyped for the PS4, since we've heard next-to-nothing about Durango. Also, M$ has so few games that we can only use our imaginations for launch titles.

To this, Morgan Haro, PSN community manager, replied: “PS Plus is here to stay, so you can take advantage of the offer with confidence.”

That could simply mean it's not going anywhere for 10 years at least, because by now (if people have been following Sony) you should know that the PS3 has a ten year lifecycle. Article after article after article over the years got so many things wrong simply because they didn't factor that in.

Ps+ will definitely move over to the PS4 but this comment is deliberately vague because they'll probably be uncertain whether they can actually launch the PS4 with PS+. Just think logically here: Where would the library come from?

"Ps+ will definitely move over to the PS4 but this comment is deliberately vague because they'll probably be uncertain whether they can actually launch the PS4 with PS+. Just think logically here: Where would the library come from"

It will just be PS3 stuff for mean time an discount on DLC for the PS4. It will carry over (too big not to) and I think it will be at launch to get those early buyers

I agree the statement is vague because you don't want a Sony website admitting a PS4 is coming. They just do not do that

GribbleGrunger1272d ago

The problem is that BC hasn't been confirmed. Now it would be wise for Sony to delay that BC if they want strong PS3 sales for the next two or three years. Unless they have other options of course (of which there are many through Gaikai). We'll just have to wait and see. Like you said though, they're not going to want to subliminally announce the PS4. People who wait, won't buy a PS3.

iamnsuperman1272d ago

@GribbleGunger

I never meant BC. I actually think it will be similar to getting PS2 titles through the store. I may not be able to play PS2 disc games but I can buy some games through the store and I can see Sony doing the same next generation. Also Gaikai will have an impact

kayoss1272d ago

@gribbleGrunger
Backward compatibility may not be available for disc base games but for digital download it is a very high possibility. Remember, the aquisition of Gaikai will play a big part in PS4 PS plus offering. Imagine what Sony can do with the possibilities. Sony can allow all PS Plus member stream free game from Gaikai, but im pretty sure the subscription fee for the PS plus probably increase. But if i get to stream games from gaikai and still get the PS plus perks of free games then im willing to pay the extra money.

Mr_Writer851272d ago

I think it will have more online features to make up for it. And they may have one PS4 game a month and the rest PS3/PSN games and slowly phase them out.

If they keep online free but offer people cross game chat, even private lobbies, and cloud saving as part of plus I'd be happy.

Bowzabub1272d ago (Edited 1272d ago )

They can offer digital versions of PS3 games... Bye bye BC problem. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

5eriously1272d ago

PS+ is and PSN service not an PS3 service, even the Vita get the benefits. Waiting for the next article which will be about "Neflix service to remain on PS4", etc.

What people will do for site hits, just stating the obvious.

lovegames7181272d ago

I foresee Ps plus on the ps4 getting Gakai implementation and i am extremely excited for the possibility. That will be awesome.
