You Won't Have to Pay Anything to Use Netflix or Chat on the PS4

By Sam Gibbs on at

The war of "anything you can do, I can do better" between the consoles continues, this time with Sony's revelation that you won't have to pay a penny to use the PS4's online capabilities for anything other than gaming. That means free access to your Netflix subscription, and free online chat, for those who actually use their consoles for other things.

Unfortunately, unlike the PS3, you will have to pay for a PlayStation Plus subscription to play most games online, apart from free-to-play games that is. But considering right now it seems you have to pay to use anything on Xbox Live on the Xbox One, just like you do on the Xbox 360, Sony just scored another point in the war of console one-upmanship.
