Sony's turn this time!.

From 10.00am on 22nd February until 23.59pm on 26th February we’re opening up the world of online multiplayer to everyone. That’s right – between those dates you don’t have to be a PlayStation Plus member to get online and play the games you love with your friends, family and the rest of the world.

I hope not.. the Beta (for update 4.50) was released 3rd Feb (2weeks tomorrow) how long do they usually beta test for? Update apparently also includes the ability to watch 3D blurays with the PSVR headset and use custom wallpapers.

I think I read somewhere that it can usually be at least a month between beta and the update going live to the masses. But don't go treating it as gospel

It does. I'm running the BETA now. They do a public preview that you can sign up for. I think this is the third.

Of course I signed an NDA so destroy this once read

Doesn't seem to be active yet, lots of people complaining on the blog site

I just cancelled my PS Plus sub because its a rip off and it ran out a few days ago. Won't be subbing again as I barely play online nowadays and only really played Titanfall 2 when I did. Online really should be free as we give enough money to these faceless corporations that we shouldn't have to. Charging for multiplayer is like charging people to breath air. Its a basic human right.

So the Yanks get a weeks free trial and we only get 5 days,and that's even delayed going live.

Must say they are doing a great job in trying to persuade me to sign up to a paid plus account (_;) ( (reaches for trusty PS3)

Sooooo what's happening....

Have Sony been hacked again or is it standard technical problems -i.e.scheduled for year 2022 not 2017!
