So much love for Sony just because all they did is start charging for multiplayer?

Exactly
Is that even confirmed that you will need PSN+ for multiplayer?
Could it be that it is only for used games maybe?
For some reason I thought they said last night you will not need to pay subscription fee for MP games.

Current XBox 360 and PS3 games handle multiplayer by creating a P2P connection between all the players. You often generally play these games without an internet connection at all if you have multiple 360s or PS3s in the same LAN. So the network requirement for Sony or Microsoft is Low.

Theoretically some of the new PS4 games will use an actual server infrastructure, it may be that you will need to pay for these types of games as it cost Sony plenty of host servers for multiplayer. Who knows, I hope Sony says something officially about this soon.
