PlayStation 4 will not have regional restrictions


Sony does not skimp on the details of their console PlayStation 4. One of the latest news, for example, was the information that the PS4 will not have regional restrictions, and therefore their owners will be able to play absolutely any game, no matter where they were purchased, without any difficulty.

This message appeared on the Twitter page of Brad Douglas, Sony Japan, who said that after talking with the PR-department of Sony found out that the PlayStation 4 will not have any regional restrictions: a person can buy a console in one part of the world, and the game – in other the world, and without any problems enjoy it.

Perhaps this is another key feature that distinguishes the positive side of the PlayStation 4 Xbox One. In the latter, by the way, these restrictions will be in view of the requirements of the company’s policy in the matter of entertainment content.

Sony Officially information that no regional restrictions has not yet confirmed, but knowing that the same PS3 has no such restrictions, it is likely that the new console does not receive them.

However, all is not rosy as it may seem, and the new PlayStation 4 has one feature that definitely did not quite appeal to those who have already decided ahead of time to make a choice in favor of the console from Sony.

For a long time, a PlayStation 3 has attracted the attention of people on the grounds that access to the PlayStation Network, you have access to the online part and the multiplayer was free. Xbox 360, in turn, required for multiplayer money, asking for a subscription to Xbox Live Gold. In addition, Sony offered to subscribe to PlayStation Plus, which gave the owners of PS3 consoles number of advantages: such as early access to beta versions of some games, advanced functionality and exclusive content. Subscription was not compulsory, but such a choice was offered.

In an interview with CVG portal SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida provided information, which may frustrate potential buyers of the new PlayStation 4. The bottom line is that the PlayStation Plus subscription will now become mandatory for those who want to play online. This requirement still would not address the PlayStation 3 and portable Vita, and does not apply to cases in which the prefix is ​​played on a TV. The monthly subscription fee will be about $ 5.

Understanding the possible future of indignation, Mr. Yoshida hastened to justify such a difficult decision for Sony: all proceeds go to support the service and its improvement. In addition, all a subscription PlayStation Plus will receive not only access to exclusive content, programs, discounts and so on, but also on a monthly basis for one digital copy of some indie games, not only for PlayStation 4, but also for the PlayStation 3 and Vita .
