To fully get the most out of your PlayStation 4, an Internet connection will be required at least for the first time you boot the console. This is due to the fact that the PlayStation 4 will require a downloadable, day 1 patch that unlocks many of the system's features.
Such features the patch will unlock include:
The patch will be 300MB in size and these features will not be available unless you download the patch.
Not requiring the patch, but requiring an Internet connection upon first time use, will be Blu-ray and DVD playback.
What happens if you don't have an Internet connection? Then unfortunately, these features will not be available to you until you can connect your console to the Internet.
How do you feel about this PS4 Experts? Does it not bother you because you're connecting your console to the Internet anyways, or do you feel this is an underhanded move on Sony's part? Let us know in the comments!
