How Would You Improve Playstation Plus on the PS5?

Forums - Sony Discussion - How Would You Improve Playstation Plus on the PS5?

I can't improve on it cause I am against paying for online gaming. When you buy a gaming system, online gaming should be part of it.

Xbox started this unfair trend, Playstation followed suit and Switch joined the party a bit late but still they joined it and I'm not happy about it.

But since that won't happen - offering two tiers. A budget one that consists of online multiplayer and the stuff no one cares about, and a premium one that consists of that plus the 'free' games plus the store discounts.

This is actually a really good idea and I wish they would do this. I don't care about the free games if I want a game I buy it and the store discounts are hardly worth it and I'd be willing to lose them.



Completly dissolve plus this piece of crap and make online play free again

By getting rid of it, and playing multiplayer games for free like it should be and not this penny pinching crap Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are doing.

This.  



1. Improve the quality of the service. They make millions and millions of dollars of PS+ and yet PSN servers seem even worse than they were on PS3.
2. Offer better games. I haven't subscribed in months, maybe even a year, because the games offered have imho been quite assy. They even reduced the number of games but still kept offering poop.

That's about it. A higher tier service that combines both, similar to what Microsoft does now with GP Ultimate, would be nice but it also seems like a logical step Sony will take.

By making it free again, as it was before PS4. But since players are happy to pay always more for things they don't have to pay, that won't happen.

Assuming PS will spread this sub money to more than just online services, and use some of it for hardware purposes going forward, if there were 2 possible outcomes for PS5 hardware based on PS Plus subs, which would you prefer?

1. PS4 having free online this entire gen, leading to a $399-$499 PS5 that cost $399-$499 to make. (imagine another PS4 type launch basically)

or

2. PS4 having paid online as it has all gen, leading to a $399-$499 PS5 that cost $599-$699 to make. (imagine a PS3 type launch but affordable)

I think PS would be crazy not to use some of this money for extra manufacturing costs to make the next gen hardware better than it otherwise would be, while also using some of those sub funds, as well as the next gen subs, to offset the cost of the subsidy for that better more affordable hardware.

It's possible that PS just offers choice 1 no matter what and only uses the sub funds for online since that's where it came from, but I think that would be foolish of them. Using it partially for better more affordable hardware to get as many people into the ecosystem as quickly as possible would help justify the sub cost for many people. Others won't care regardless though and would just rather have free online.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Get rid of 3 games per month and replace it with NOW. Then in NOW add AAA games. Keep all the other stuff currently on PS4.

Option 1, by a long shot.  I am not into the whole power thing.  I grew up playing NES, the Switch is amazing to me.  The ps4 is mind blowing.  I am sure whatever the ps5 will do is plenty.  



Making online free again.
Make PS+ a better option than a necessity, and let people play their games to the fuelest without having to pay more.
