Slightly over a year ago Sony launched PlayStation Plus, a premium PSN subscription which enabled members to gain access to exclusive PS3 content etc reserved only for members of PlayStation Plus. Now they look back on a very successful year of gaming and hope for many more like it.

Two days ago Sony celebrated its one-year anniversary for Playstation Plus and in order to celebrate, they have presented the fans with a list of releases that are coming their way this month and if you are a member of PlayStation Plus, it looks good for you.

Sony has unveiled that members will get ‘Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars’, ‘Golden Axe’ and ‘Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver’, also if you weren’t much of a gamer in 2007 you will be glad to hear that a full game trial of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 will also be available. In terms of exclusive discounts there are lots to talk about, we recommend checking out the PlayStation Blog for full details.

Less important things to tell you about are the two dynamic themes and the premium avatar which will are accessible to PS+ subscribers. One of the dynamic themes is a PlayStation Plus Anniversary theme, whilst the other is simply called ‘Symbol Flow’, as for the premium avatar this is called the ‘inFamous 2 Bad Cole Avatar’.

Sony has confirmed that PS Plus members who have been there fore the start will have had access to content which would have cost them in excess of £700, that’s not bad for a single year, especially considering it costs as little as £3.50 per month.

And so the final bonus for the anniversary will be in the form of a prize draw which includes all PS+ subscribers. There are three prizes up for grabs whereby the first ($4000 worth of Sony Entertainment) is the most exciting by far. The second prize will be for three people to win a year’s subscription and the third prize is for 100 people to win a 90 day Plus membership.

Sony’s celebrations suggest that the see the first year of PlayStation as a massive success the fact that PS+ has been such a huge success, we remember when we first told our readers about PS+ there was outrage, has your opinion on PS+ changed for the better since its launch?
