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..."

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

allformats1874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

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.

ZodTheRipper1874d ago

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.

MysticStrummer1874d ago

@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.

dredgewalker1874d ago

People keep forgetting that most of the best devs in the business were once indie devs.

Kingthrash3601874d ago


thetruthx11874d ago

Keep up the great work, Sony.

ThatCanadianGuy5141874d ago

Yep.Still riding that tidal wave of good news.

"It is currently spreading around the web"
Thanks to PSLS, of course.They love them some flashy fake headlines.

@ 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.

JoGam1874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

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.

JoGam1874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

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.

live in your world, play in ours again.

DoctorJones1874d ago

Yeah, um, great soundbite. Thanks.

Majin-vegeta1874d ago

Whos the moron who started this??

The only bad news for the PS4 is we gotta wait another 2 months before we can get our hands on it :(.

AceBlazer131874d ago

Some false rumor an idiot made up(probably a hater).

AngelicIceDiamond1874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

Name 5 bad X1 article that recently came out in the past 24 hours?

Let me name some positives for you

8 controller support confirmed
Halo 2014 is Halo 5
Cloud power tech strikes again

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.

G20WLY1874d ago

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.

Biggest1874d ago

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.

XabiDaChosenOne1874d 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.

AngelicIceDiamond1874d 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.
