It’s been over a year since PS4 owners have had to pay a single cent to unlock a free game on the platform.
Now Sony has confirmed to The Verge that it will no longer offer free games to PS4 players.
Instead, you’ll be able to download games for free via the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Now, and PlayStation TV.
But Sony says that this won’t change the way you play.
“No matter which console you buy, PlayStation and PlayStation Now will work together to provide a seamless experience,” a Sony spokesperson told The Verge.
“Your free game purchases will continue to be fully supported and available to play through your PlayStation 4 and your PS4 Pro.
“We’re looking forward to your feedback and feedback from our customers and we look forward to continuing to work with you on the future of the PlayStation ecosystem.” “
Free games will also be available to download on PlayStation Network for an extra fee. “

The PS4 and PS4 TV will also now be able be used as free Wi-Fi hotspots.
You can read more about all of this in a press release from Sony that details how the new service will work.
PS4 and PlayStation Plus are free to use on the PS3 and PS Vita, and each subscription is free for a limited time.
Sony also announced a few new features for its PS4 game library, including a free-to-play online mode that lets players share and play their games with friends.
Free to play is still a great idea, but the PlayStation 4’s free-for-all multiplayer model is going to be a welcome addition to the platform’s freebie-laden catalogue.
