The new premium subscription service, Playstation Plus:
- Launching on the 29th June
- The current PSN features will remain free. We are still very committed to PSN as a free gaming service and are certainly not planning on reducing this service following the launch of PlayStation Plus.
- Plus is an evolving service and the features included at launch will be:
- Exclusive items on Playstation Store
- Full Game Trial
- Automatic Downloads
(More info on these below)
- Membership to Plus can be purchased through the Playstation Store on PS3 for either 90 days or a whole year (365 days)
- Local prices for membership can be found below, payment is a one off fee for either of the memberships and can be purchased with any of the current Store payment methods – Credit Card or PSN Cards
- If you sign up between the 29th June and 3rd Aug for the 1 year subscription then you will also receive a downloadable copy of the original Little Big Planet game for PS3, completely free! This is yours to keep and is not tied to the period of subscription
Games and Special Offers: Each month you will get a total of 4 games a month; 1x PSN game, 2x minis and 1x PS One classics. Every month you will receive 4 different titles, and you will always be able to re-download the older titles you might have cleared off your hard drive.
Automatic Download: Your PS3 will be able to wake up from standby at any time of the day and automatically download and install any new game or updates from the Playstation Plus service.
The games you get while paying for the service are yours to keep, but if you let your subscription overlap, your PS+ content will be deactivated. Once you renew your subscription, all of your PS+ content will be reactivated.
