    Not surprising, and since a PS+ subscription is now required for online gaming on the PS4 this was always going to be additional. Hopefully they will implement some sort of “Super PS+” which includes both.

    I had hoped this would be included with PS+, but i guess not. I’m with Paul and hope for some sort of super plus. Otherwise, I’d hate to add on yet another monthly recurring bill to my stack of other monthly occurring bills.

    I like the sound of $8/month, but I would be surprised if that price point doesn’t limit you in some way (either bandwidth or playable “airtime”). The mechanics of streaming the game just require a lot more supply-side costs than streaming a movie, and Sony’s going to want to see an immediate profit on the service.
