Sony planning to refresh PSN+?

1 min read


Sony could be set to reveal an update to its existing PlayStation Plus subscriber service at E3 this year, according to Eurogamer, citing “multiple sources.”

Sources indicate that much of Sony’s June 4th conference will be dedicated to walking through the features of the new refreshed service, which will integrate with the PlayStation Vita, and offer subscribers “top tier games” for free.

Eurogamer’s report says that Vita owners who subscribe could be entitled to Vita exclusive games, free DLC and a cloud service that would allow users to backup and manage data without having to interface with a PS3 or PC.

Sounds pretty plausible to me. As part of Kazuo Hirai’s unified Sony strategy, he said "the company also aims to increase sales by enriching its catalogue of downloadable game titles and subscription services available through the PSN platform."

Though I’ve always seen the value in it, I’ve never been drawn enough to subscribe to PlayStation Plus – though a few Vita games thrown my way might convince me otherwise.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
