You need to have a Gold sub even with F2P and MMOs?
Yeah that's what the article was talking about at one point.I find it hard to believe MS is going to agree to this, but I guess we'll see.Last I heard, Bethesda said they are trying to convince Sony and Microsoft out of that. But I haven't heard the result.
No different then buying a season pass or buy the limited edition games. Hell the killer instinct fight stick cost more them a whole year of subscription of a MMO.
true you HAVE to have a subscription to order to play, but do you really need it? NO but will be people out there that will buy it? YES
Same thing with season pass, yes your right you dont have to get season pass to play the game even though this game is not a subscription, but the question is will people buy it to play it? Yes. Do they need it? No.
What I am saying people will spend money on anything without thinking. You have people who buy collectors editions because they like to collect stuff so they will put the $150 into it to have it.
Well same thing, they are people that love MMO and know they can get the best entertainment for their subscription.
Last I heard, Bethesda said they are trying to convince Sony and Microsoft out of that. But I haven't heard the result.
Furthermore, free-to-play games won't require PlayStation Plus for online multiplayer. During a separate roundtable Joystiq was present at, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida said, "As far as free-to-play games are concerned, it's the publisher's decision whether they put it inside or outside of PS Plus."
You can find this information many places but i linked one below. I don't know why any publisher would stick it behind the pay wall, but its their option. I remember people arguing whether it was fair or not to PS+ members just like I see some of you guys asking if its fair to Box Live Gold members or not.
