Sony Confirm PlayStation Plus At E3


Early demos, and invitations to betas, discounts on the PlayStation Store and Minis. Those are some of the features Sony mentioned with regard to PlayStation Plus, its new paid-for PSN subscription service, which will compliment the regular free PSN.


PlayStation Plus launches later this month. A full year subscription will cost you $49.99, and a 3-month subscription $17.99. The first three months of the service will be free for a limited time. For these three months, certain titles like wipEout HD and others will be “temporarily” owned by you.
