I'm getting a ps4 soon and I heard you need a PlayStation Plus to play online, like Xbox Live. Is it true and how much is it?

For multiplayer part on PS4 games, yes you need PlayStation Plus. On the bright side you do get free games for keeping the subscription.

It is $50 for 12 months, $18 for 3 months, or $10 for a month.

Compared to the XBox Live services of the past, Playstation Plus is more than just "cost of admission" to play online multiplayer games. Many games/add-ons have discounts for being a Plus member, including some games being completely free.

So, let's say you buy a full year of PS+ ($50 bucks) and find a bunch of games you want for free or heavily discounted for PS+ users - you've made back the cost of the year's subscription... AND you still get that benefit of playing online multiplayer games.

Now, I should mention that not all games require a PS+ account for their online multiplayer. Games that are ONLY online multiplayer (MMOs) tend not to require PS+... usually it's up to the company behind the game in that instance. Make sure you check beforehand.
