The lights are on
Jack Tretton just won an enormous round of applause. He just
announced that the PlayStation 4 will not impose new used game
restrictions. The system will also not require online
authentication.Additionally, PlayStation Plus
memberships will carry over to PlayStation 4 with no additional cost.
Netflix and other services won't be behind a paywall. Oh, and your
instant collection will start on day one with DriveClub. It's not clear
whether it's the full version given the "PlayStation Plus edition"
sub-title. There will be a new free game every month, with three indie titlesincluding Don't Starve coming in the first months.One
interesting note is that Tretton was careful to state that
single-player content and media services (like Netflix) will be free
without a subscription. Be prepared to pay a fee for multiplayer.The response in the crowd seems to say it all, but what do you think? What are your plans for next generation?
