I suppose you read up about the PlayStation 4 requiring users to have an active PS Plus Subscription for Online Multiplayer?
Well, I suppose your a bit frustrated with this and I can tell you now that there are certain ways/methods to get extra PS Plus Subscription time for free!
If you don't know what PS Plus is, it is basically a service provided by Sony that guarantees you to get at least 3 - 4 full PS3 Games per month. 3 - 4 free PS Vita Games per month. Soon, 3 - 4 Free PS4 Games per month!
STOCKING UP ON EXTRA SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR FREE!:
Guess what? Sony normally offers users to purchase a 1 year PS Plus Subscription and get an extra 3 months for FREE! How to do this? Be on the lookout for offers/emails from Sony (or look in the ad bar at the top of the XMB). Sometimes this offer will appear.
So if you wait and purchase a 1 year subscription for $49.99 when this offer turns around, you will get an additional 3 months for free.
PS Plus 12 Month Subscription = $49.99
PS Plus 3 Month Subscription = $17.99
12 Months + 3 Months = 15 Months.
$49.99 - $17.99 = $32.00
If you claim this offer at some point, you will technically only be paying $32 for 15 months of PS Plus! Great Online Service. Free games across 3 different PlayStation Platforms. Online Multiplayer (PS4 Only), cross chat. Amazing right?
NOTE: PS PLUS IS ONLY REQUIRED FOR ONLINE MULTIPLAYER! IS NOT REQUIRED FOR ALL OTHER SERVICES!!! (Such as Netflix, YouTube, Music Unlimited, etc)
