Today, we’re introducing a new, optional feature for our readers that will hopefully make browsing our articles easier for you and help support (i.e., pay) our writers and staff. Siliconera+ is a way to read and visit without having to deal with any sorts of ads.
We’re kicking things off with one tier and option. For $1.99 per month (or $19.99 per year), you’ll have an ad-free experience on the site.
However, we are working to offer additional options for visitors. We’ve taken input from surveys into consideration. Based on your feedback, we’ll offer two additional tiers with things like an email newsletter which goes over important stories and includes original articles, discounts at some stores, and opportunities to help choose which games we’ll stream and playtest. (To be clear, this would not influence which news stories we cover. People at higher tiers would only be able to help vote on which games we would stream for you or if we go out of our way to playtest certain games.)
We thank you in advance for your support and want to keep trying our best to provide the most up-to-date gaming news from Japan. We have great things planned, like more streams and our newly launched forums.
Thank you for reading!
