What online features require PlayStation Plus on PS4?

What online features require PlayStation Plus on PS4?

PlayStation Plus has transformed significantly over its initial release on PS3. In fact, many of Plus' features change between PS3, Vita, and PS4.

On PS4, Plus access is required to play online multiplayer games--minus free-to-play games like DC Universe Online, Warframe, and Blacklight Retribution. Those games can still be accessed using a free PlayStation Network account. But what else can you do with a Plus subscription?

PlayStation 4 includes $10 PSN credit; Plus and Music Unlimited trials

Console manufacturers have traditionally had a little trouble getting everyone to realise they can go online even for multiplayer, let alone to get games and music and all that. To really rub the point home, Sony's throwing a few vouchers in the box with every new PlayStation 4, offering $10 credit to spend on the PlayStation store, 30 days' free PlayStation Plus membership, and 30 days of Music Unlimited.

Resogun preview: bullet heaven

Resogun preview: bullet heaven

Developer Housemarque has had plenty of experience refining the bullet hell genre. The makers of Super Stardust brought their latest schmup to this year's IndieCade and I eagerly picked up a DualShock 4 to try out Resogun.

I'm somewhat pleased to say that Resogun blew me away--and by that, I mean that the game's insane amount of enemies quickly blew my ship out of existence. This is an old-school arcade-like twin-stick shooter in every possible way, right down to the brutal difficulty.
