Sony would like you to try out multiplayer on your PS4, so it’s making the first taste free. This weekend, you’ll be able to enjoy the PlayStation Plus service without paying a cent, just to see if you like it.
The PS4 uses a slightly different plan than the PS3, which did not require PlayStation Plus for all online services. Now though, you’ll need that premium service if you want to enjoy multiplayer on the platform.
This is particularly neat if you’ve recently picked up a game like Destiny, Diablo III or Madden NFL 15 and haven’t yet seen the online multiplayer elements (plus all the other nifty stuff that PS Plus brings with it!).
It’d be nice if this then lead into a discounted subscription offer, but Sony‘s hoping you like PlayStation Plus so much you’ll sign up on Monday regardless.
