Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not you should subscribe to PlayStation Plus to take advantage of the online elements in Bloodborne.
Yes if you want to do PvP and invade other people or help them
It would be fun to have MP offerings other than that, though. PS+ isn't worth it just for Bloodborne.
But PS+ is well worth it for all the games particularly if you have PS3 PS4 and Vita so it's all win
i would say yes. playing ay of the souls games, just isnt the same without the online element. whether it be helping, invading or getting invaded.
I'm pretty sure you only need PS+ for PvP. My flatmate plays on my PS4, on his own account but don't have PS+ and is able to invade, help and get help.
no u need PS+ for PvP, and invading other people and asking help
@ArnoDorian You don't, you only need it for PvP.
Why the hell would you own a PS4 for gaming and not be on PS+?
Kids without a part/full time job and moms credit card has limits.
Than why are those kids missing out on all those free games?
bud, If I had your issue I wouldn't even have a damn PS4. Hell I only got PS4 at launch for BF4 based on I just didn't feel like replacing my HD 5770. I didn't need to get a PS4 as I could have just played BF4 on PC on lower settings or got a better GPU for a bit more money. I got a PS4 because I have the option to, I have the money to, hell I got a 3rd PS3 this weekend based on my old one is being used for Netflix for my mom and I don't feel like going in her room to play older games lol. PS3 is just fine for me, hell when I'm not playing BF4 or netflix on my PS4, I'm using my PC and PS3 much more to finish up older games. In fact, If I where to just list the next gen only titles I even own, it would just be Killzone SF, InFamous Second Son, BF4 (BF4 more so as Frostbite is a scaleable engine) and I wouldn't even count Type Zero as its merely a port of the PSP version and I would hardly call it next gen. I'm sorry but I can legit say there isn't a real reason to really upgrade right now. Killzone SF and InFamous no doubt are great games, they are not buy a PS4 today JUST FOR THEM kind of games. Batman, Witcher 3, Star Wars BF etc are better reasons to jump on board. We are just getting good next gen only titles. If you have almost no money, why suffer the gen with just a PS4 with no PS Plus? Hell why even get a PS4? Focus on getting a better job and on you, then ball! Good luck too, I know how it is gaming and barely having any money.
that's the beauty in sony's new strategy isn't it? put multiplayer behind a paywall while making it appear plus is worth it even without multiplayer. yet you still have those that act like the huge increase in plus memberships for the ps4 is due to how awesome plus is without admitting the main reason is because they put multiplayer behind a paywall.
No, in fact it's ridiculous that you need to have PS Plus for such a small online offering.
Its online gaming. Online gaming on consoles cost extra money now. If you dont like it, travel back in time and tell everyone not to support Xbox Live before they made it all normal and acceptable.
Or I suppose that I could just play on PC.....I haven't quite completed my time machine design yet.
PS+ isn't just for mp on Bloodborne. it's worth it...
If you have a PS4 and / or PS3 / vita, it's worth it. The amount of free games a month you get is sweet. Plus discounts on other games / addons. You can find a year for $40 or less at times, which is a lot less than the price you'd have to pay for the games you get.
Lucky i finished bloodborne before my ps+ subscription finished. uncharted will definitely renew my subscription though (if it has good multiplayer)
Why wouldn't it have a good multiplayer? Its naughty dog bro
I wouldnt recomment tlou mp or uncharted mp to anyone to be honest. Where they succeed in story telling, i think they fail in mp. But im going into uncharted 4 with high hopes.
WTF!? Uncharted 2 and TLOUS have amazing MP,some o f the best a had seen. Uncharted 3 was a bit under U2/TLOUS, but for real, Uncharted 2/TLOUS have a MP at the level of Gears, easy. The only exclusive that is cut above the rest in MP is HALO, godlike MP for HALO 3, HALO is just above any PS exclusive in MP for shooting.
Come on dude they are no where near gears in mp seriously gears defined tps last gen and is still the best tps ever made.
"Cough" socom 2 "cough" "cough"
I agreed to soon, I retract my agree. I definitely enjoy TLOU multiplayer more than I've ever enjoyed Halo's.
@Metal_fox Yeah but it is ok to downplay great games like GOW because you like ps more. Grow up! Obvious ps fanboy i obvious.
I thought the last of us was an overall better game than Gears. Gears got stale and boring. Not to mention their new developer didn't even make one game yet. It's a reason why PS4 is outselling the xbone its because it's far superior with amazing exclusives that get game of year awards way more than Xbone
NO! Do it for the free games! I mean why wouldn't you at this point? If you only own PS4 and only play single player then I get it, but if you own PS3, PSP etc, please dear god get PS Plus. My only regret with PS Plus is not getting it sooner. I bought many games used which turned out free, lol hell when I was first getting PS Plus, I was about to buy Ico and SoTc and a used copy of Fatal Frame 1 and 2 off of Amazon, I was just going to bit the bullet and buy it then realized, I could get them free and get Fatal Frame 1 and 2 at a discount on PSN vs buying them used online. It started saving me money that very weekend. Got Fatal Frame 1 and 2 for like $4 bucks each and Ico and SoTc free. Since then, I got many games with deep discounts or free. Factor that I was going to buy many of those games anyway, thus its saving me money purely based off of me buying some of those titles used, equals PSN Plus anyway. $50 for online for PS4 and free games across 4 systems (not sure if PSP still gets em) is pretty damn good.
Bloodborne MP is a lifesaver. For people like me who struggle with these games it is anyway. Played solo all the way to Vicar Amelia and just couldn't do it, quick ring of the bell two people joined and we annihilated her - can finally move on :)
I hit my wall at that point in the game (metaphorically :p). I was stuck between fighting her and the blood starved beast. I never really thought of ringing the bell, I just kept trying and took them down myself. That feeling after finally taking down ameilia was awesome and then I went and took down the beast. Revenge is best served with fire on your blade :D
I've never used it, I play offline, so I personally wouldnt get PS+ for Bloodborne. I do have PS+ already though.
Not specifically, no.
PS plus is great value - so to have a PS4 and no ps plus is like having car with no radio. But PS plus soleley for Bloodbore multiplayer - not sure. MP in bloodborne is my only gripe with an otherwise brilliant game. Only once have I ever been matched up with someone to help me with a boss - but it takes my insight anyway, even after waiting an hour for someone and no one answers the bell. I hope they make adjustments in future.Do notes still show up without a PS plus subscription?
Not for BloodBorne specifically because the PvP and Coop system they have is complete garbage and takes too long. Though PS+ is a great value
i have ps plus, but i play mostly solo until i fight a realy hard boss ROOOOOOM!
While I love ps+ and have been a sub since day 1, subbing to it just for Bloodborne is not worth it. The pvp is still broken in that game and it takes ages to connect to another player.
