I'm not pleased about having to pay for online gameplay with the PS4, but I guess the games that plus comes with are a nice bonus.
It was inevitable with the push towards MMO/Online only games we're seeing. Even more so when they want to adopt F2P models. I'm just surprised they didn't do it sooner with the PS3. Knew it was coming the moment they added PS+ all those years ago, but what's more surprising is Microsoft's unwillingness to match it & instead spend the profits from XBL towards timed DLC. It's obviously not as favourable and when the bulk of it seems to be spent on BF/CoD each year, it's a time bomb waiting to go off when the interest is fading in both franchises.
