E3 2013: PlayStation Plus price won’t change for PS4, video services can be used without it

Sitting down for a roundtable discussion with Joystiq, Sony Computer Entertainment of America vice-president of publisher and developer relations Adam Boyes confirmed that the annual $50 price for PlayStation Plus will not change for the PlayStation 4.

In addition, Boyes confirmed that “all video services [on the PS4] will be outside of Plus.” In other words, services like Netflix and Hulu Plus can be used without having a PlayStation Plus subscription.

We reported earlier that it will be up to the publisher whether free-to-play titles require PlayStation Plus or not. Fair enough.
