No, You Won't Need PlayStation Plus For Remote Play

"It is currently spreading around the web that a PS+ subscription will be required in order for you to make use of the PS4 and Vita’s Remote Play features, which seems like a massive drawback since it’s such a core feature.

That is not the case however..." (PlayStation, PS Vita, PS4)

There are no bad news for PS4, deal with it :D

I have never seen one company so on point and on message and the other so out of touch and running around screaming trash like a wild chicken without a head.

The first company is Sony. You know the next company's name: Microsoft.

That's the funny part. You can look at the front page right now and notice several negative articles about Xbox but none about PS4. And it's like that for months now.

@zod - MS fans claim that's N4G's bias at work, but MS has given haters plenty of ammo just like Sony did at the beginning of last generation.

This is exactly why I am buying a PS4. Anyone can deliver a false message and hold off on saying anything until a person buys their product.

The sign of a great company is information up front and all of what is said is backed up by actions that say, "yes, we understand what our consumers want and we will provide that service for you without any strings attached."

Sony already had it bad press with ps3, it had a lot issues even Thu i love my ps3. the ps4 was them learning from that.

X box one is Microsoft been cocky from Sony stumble, an underestimated their competition.

Thu it a long way away, ps5 an x box next will both be strong systems, that push the bounds as lower cost an better technology happen every year.

even Thu their pessimism about this gen, remember this is next gen from ps3 an 360 not next gen PC. an am fine with that an happy with what we get.

Sony really knows not only how to create a console, but also how to deliver it to its consumers.

Hey Microsoft, you paying attention and taking some notes? Take a break from deleting disparaging comments from your Youtube videos and buying an audience for your next conference and try to learn something.

Yep.Still riding that tidal wave of good news.

@ Addictive: Help us understand what there is to be in denial about. One has enjoyed, as mentioned, a tidal wave of positive news. The other, has stumbled more than I've ever seen any company stumble in this industry.

Hint: surely there's denial, but it stems from the source that claimed it.

Ok, so if you need Playstion Plus to use Remote Play it would only be required for online games that has online remote play interactions from a PS4 game. Remote play is free. Keep in mind, PS3 and Vita online will remain free. Only PS4 multiplayer requires Plus unless its a Free to Play game.

To clarify....Take Battlefield 4, if it had the ability to use the Vita as a map in multiplayer through remote play (Not Confirmed, just an example) you will need Playstation Plus because of BF4 multiplayer, not for remote play. Remote play is free.

Let me name some positives for you

8 controller support confirmed
Halo 2014 is Halo 5
Cloud power tech strikes again http://gamingbolt.com/kille...

Btw opinion pieces saying Xbox is doomed and PS4 will flourish isn't news just to be clear.

Let me get you started. X1 won't support external Drives.

That has NOTHING to do with this article OR the post you're replying to. :/

Bubbled Down -Off Topic

It's a good thing that these sorts of features aren't behind a pay wall. It would be madness if that were to be the case.

You linked an article stating that the cloud will be used for data storage and review. That isn't "cloud power tech". That's simple book keeping.
XabiDaChosenOne  +   693d ago
So you are getting excited because Microsoft titled the 5th installment of the main Halo games Halo 5? I need a break from the Internet.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   693d ago
@Kobe I didn't say anything about being excited about it. I'm just making a point.

Halo is just being milked, and has been since 2009.

I believe the biggest rip off is the recording still
With xbox one, you need to have gold account to record 5 min
With PS4, you can record and upload 15min for free

You really think they'll be a PS5? Genuine question :P
Xsilver  +   693d ago
its Sony i didn't expect them to make us pay for something that they are using as a great selling point for PSvita so yeah i saw that coming from a mile away anyway keep up the good job SONY.
thelaughingwiseman  +   693d ago
hmm, would we be able to remote play games with MP? You know how you can play almost every ps4 game on the ps vita? Well, isn't vita mp free? Would you be able to play mp on vita with people on ps4, via remote play?
nick309  +   693d ago
Vita remote play is free, but the multiplayer wont be( when running say ac4 on vita). Normal vita mp will still be free.
theWB27  +   693d ago
That's what the original statement was....in order to play PS4 multiplayer via remote play you would need PS+....then it was misconstrued to needing PS+ for remote play period.

The original comment on the matter was pretty clear.
Kingthrash360  +   693d ago
its only obvious....just think....remote play is to play a PS4 game using a PSVita...so yeah its still a ps4 game which need plus to run online...if it was a vita game made for the vita as in downloaded or a cart it woukd be free....why is that so hard to understand...I know people wanna exploit but dam...Sony's not dumb....well.. anymore. lol (what I mean by that is the gameshareing exploit before they brought it down to 2)

Playstation set to dominate
IcicleTrepan  +   693d ago
It makes no sense for PS+ to be required for this feature since it's a direct connection between the PS4 and the Vita. I would have never thought in a million years that you'd need PS+ to do this and it's basically a moot point.
jessupj  +   692d ago
Well if MS had this feature, you could be dam sure it would be behind their pay wall.

Fortunately for me, Sony are better than that.
stage88  +   693d ago
And Sony hits it out of the park again :)
pyramidshead  +   693d ago
Why the hell would it have required it in the first place? lol silly idea.
Great news.
Williamson  +   693d ago
Pretty poor journalism from the site that reported that plus would be needed. I think it was PlayStation lifestyle which for the most part is a good site, but seriously poor journalism indeed.
corvusmd  +   693d ago
Every time this topic comes up, it just makes me wonder how many people are getting PS4s but not PS+. Are most PS4 gamers actually turning to PS4 because they don't want to play online?
ion53  +   693d ago
I really hope the PS5 doesn't become another PS3. Sony, stay humble. Just use 100GB of the GDDR6 (or 7 if it's out.)
