One of the best things about being a PSN+ subscriber is the ability for your PlayStation to wake up in the middle of the night and update itself so that when you want to actually play a game it doesn’t take 2-3 hours to get into the game.
Well Sony has now seen fit to roll out this feature to all PSN subscribers, paying or not, which I think is a great move from Sony as they will definitely quieten one of the most common complaints about the PS3 with this update.
However this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stay a PSN+ member as the free games catalogue is easily worth every single penny dropped on the service and while I haven’t turned my PS3 on since GTA V was released it is something I will keep going back to so I can try work my way through that library.
Another feature added with this update (4.50) is the ability to now buy games via the web store and have them download while you are at work.
The PSN has been the weaker cousin of Xbox Live for a long time but it doesn’t look like Sony can make any mistakes at the moment and Microsoft are really going to have to buckle down if they want to keep up in this next generation.
