However, with the dawn of PlayStation 4, Sony made some changes to its policy and announced that PlayStation 4 multiplayer will be locked behind a paywall. The community had a mix reactions this but paying meant we may end up with a more stable online experience (which didn’t happen by the way).

There are many websites running scams offering free PlayStation Plus memberships. However, Sony itself is now offering players a chance to get free PlayStation Plus one month membership. PlayStation 4 users can head over here and provide Sony their Email address. You will receive and email, follow the instructions and you will be given a free code that can be redeemed at the PlayStation Store.

Free PlayStation Plus one month membership will allow players to game online. You can also download this month’s free PlayStation Plus games. Keep in mind that not all games require PlayStation Plus membership in order to play online.

This month’s free PlayStation games include the platformer LittleBigPlanet 3, and the eight-bit action game Not A Hero. In addition to that, the games Ninja Senki DX and TorqueL are available for cross-play between the PlayStation Vita and the Playstation 3. For the Playstation 3, players will be getting the multiplayer game Starwhal and the puzzle game Anna.

On a related subject, a PlayStation 4 was donated to Wellington Hospital’s children cancer ward. It was bolted to a moveable table and many kids spend time playing games on the console during their chemotherapy sessions. 15 patients visited the day stay every week in the oncology including 9-year-old Angus Little.

Head over here to read what happened to that PlayStation 4 system.

Sony recently announced that worldwide sales have gone past 57 million units. The sales number includes both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. The later is the upgrade for the base model and is available for $399. Pro is capable of native 4K is select games while 4K upscale via checkerboard in patched games.

Checkerboarding is a great and effective technique if developers manage to implement it carefully. And given that it does not even take much time, we can expect it to be a part of most PS4 games in the future.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is readying for Project Scorpio which means Sony should have PS5 in R&D by now. Sony’s next machine is expected to be shown sometime next year.
