Playstation Plus: Price, Release Date and Details

Just as expected, Sony revealed their subscription plans for Playstation Network to the world. It will be known as not PSN+ as previously rumored, but ‘Playstation Plus’ instead.

Sony announced that subcribers to the new service will actually get ‘hundreds of dollars’ worth of content. They added that PS Plus is ‘your play’ and allows you to ‘elevate your game’.

Here is the important pricing details. It will cost you $18 for three months, or $50 for a year’s subscription. As a bonus incentive, those of you who do subscibe will get three months for free.

Playstation Plus users will get early access to betas, early demos, and DLC right before anyone else. As for release date, it will be available at the end of the month – how many of you are willing to give this a tryout?

I think it is pretty reasonable for $18. Let us know your thoughts on this. More coming soon.

This is a steal $50 for full game trials and free games plus guaranteed access to betas no more applying. Not to mention discounts and no more waiting for new download patches because it automatically downloads them for you at a time of your choice. There are only pluses; if anything sony will lose money. Still like that they are keeping free online play (sucks for xbox owners)

I'm on it. It sounds like they are doing it right, which was my main concern. I'm looking forward to more details on it. I was under the impression that the three months free was for trial version that anyone could try, though. Either way, I'm getting it.

Not even close to worth it. It’s a glorified discount card really. Sure you get early access, but I’m not gonna pay money for a couple weeks of advance playtime. Also all the “freebies” get locked if you ever cancel it, so you can’t play them again until you resubscribe.

Not worth it. You egt early access and some freebies, but the free games get locked if you cancel and are unavailable to play unless you resubscribe.
