Playstation Plus Subscription Now Live With 3.40 Firmware

1 min read


The Playstation 3’s latest 3.40 firmware updated has brought with it some new additions to system.

If you have already downloaded it though, you are now able to get your subscription to the all new Playstation Plus service. With the new service you will gain access to a whole slew of extras such as discounts on games, free trials for PSOne and PSN classic games as well as access to early betas and demos.

If you don’t sign up for Plus then you will still be able to do everything that you are accustomed to, such as multiplayer gaming and so on. There is already a discount going for Fat Princess as well as a Plus specific inFamous demo.

If it isn’t already up by the time you read this, the full release of Playstation Plus will hit when the Playstation Store gets its updates later in the day. To get the service, just do the following;

Select Auto Download, Time, and Agree to be a Subscriber.’

So then, who’s getting it? I have to be honest, I’m not going to be personally springing on this one straight away, but if it had included better voice services I would have been there like a bear.

  1. Better voice? 16 people in a chat lobby not enough?

    Whats with this “…free trials for PSOne and PSN classic games…” thing?! Didn’t they say , every subscriber gets, ONE free PS1 classic and TWO free PSN games a month???

    Im confused, if this is the upgraded version they’ve been bragging about, then ill stay free. Till other feature rise to the surface of course!

    To be honest I don’t know if Sony will even release anything like that, but I will keep an eye out for those stats

    I had a look at it last night, and I’m not sold by it. It’s good that SONY is trying to take on Microsoft, but the features are not biting me. I still have my PSOne games, so why would I want to waste my precious bandwidth on free versions with PSN+? It’s a good addition though, and I hope this means Microsoft will finally start to release some freebies for their Gold customers (Ha Ha HA free microsoft? HA HA HA!)

    If SONY threw in spotify, or access to Sony’s music library to stream or download (to the PS3) I would have probably bust a nut and signed up immediately.

    In it’s current form, much like with xbox live, I don’t care.
