PS4 Multiplayer Open Weekend Starts Tomorrow

PS4 Multiplayer Open Weekend Starts Tomorrow

This weekend, Sony is hosting a multiplayer open weekend for PlayStation 4, letting anyone - even those without a PlayStation Plus membership - play games online.

On PlayStation 4, a PlayStation Plus membership is normally required to play the online multiplayer components of games (with some exceptions, like subscription-based titles.)

However, from 7 pm on Friday, September 26 (tomorrow) until 7 pm on Monday, September 29, that requirement is being lifted, allowing anyone with a PlayStation 4 to get a taste of online gaming. 

This free weekend is obviously designed as a way to entice people to subscribe to PlayStation Plus, but it gives players a chance to try out the online multiplayer components of games like Diablo III, The Last of Us Remastered, FIFA 15, and Destiny (which is an always-online game, but requires PlayStation Plus for certain, group-based activities.)

I was wondering the same thing?!? It's kind of a no-brainer to have PS+ with a PS4.

Not sure of the point.
Most PS4 users probably have PS+, and if they dont its probably because they dont play multiplayer or want anything from the IGC.
U get a free 2 week trial of PS+ anyway with the console, or even some of the games, so ud think people would have tried the mp by now.

Me. I rarely play games online.

Unless Borderlands comes to PS4, I wont be getting a subscription anytime soon.

Its worth it just for the free games per month.......then again the PS4 free offerings have been lacklustre compared to the PS3 options but time will change that.
