We have some new details on PS Plus for the PS4. It will be required to play online but not for free-to-play games or MMOs. One subscription will grant access to all accounts on that system.
Cross game chat and other media functions won’t require the subscription. This includes services like Netflix.
Games will be added and removed just like the current subscription on PS3 and you will be getting one new PS4 game every month. It’s not clear whether it would be a PS Plus edition like DriveClub which has altered content.
The subscription isn’t required for automatic updates. It will cost $50 or $5 per month. It’s something you pay for PS Plus already on PS3 so it really isn’t a surprise.
The PS4 will be released sometime later this year and according to some retailer listings in Europe, it could be out on November 13. However, Sony has said that it’s just a placeholder date.
