Playstation Plus – New Premium Service?

Mar 17, 2010

TheSixthAxis have picked up on the fact that, during the excitement of GDC, a number of newly registered domains were listed referring to “Playstation Plus”.

Since there have been rumours circulating that Sony will be launching their own PSN Premium Service, it’s not such a great leap to consider that the “Playstation Plus” may be just that.

Here is a list of the possible services:

  • Customer Service Priority Access
  • Exclusive Experiences with Sony Brands
  • Extended Console Warranty 3 Years
  • Access to Beta Games
  • Early Access to All Store Content
  • Member Demo Sharing of Full Game
  • Cross-game Voice Chat Access
  • Full Title Trial – 1st Hour Is Free
  • Token Wagering
  • User-to-user Challenges
  • Free Access to PSOne Classics, PSP Minis, and PS3/PSP Themes
  • Discounts on Store Content
  • Member Only In-game Content
  • Trophy Alerts
  • Cloud Storage Space for Games
  • Online Music Service
  • Online Music Video Service
  • Automatic Downloads and Updates
  • Loyalty Program Rewards
  • Facebook Connectivity
  • Catch-up TV
  • Netflix Access Without Disc

I would be more than happy to pay for a premium service – depending on what was included, obviously. How about you?

    I dunno. Having everything start out free and then introducing paid premium… even though the normal service technically isn’t missing out on too much, it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    I’d have to see how much it is per moth before I can say wether I’d use it or not.

  2. I know what you mean. If they keep PSN as it is now but offer a premium service with more features, that’ll be fine. In fact, I’d more than likely be happy to pay for the premium service – as long as they give us a choice!

    One of the features allows you to upload your game saves to a server so that you can download them to any PS3 console that you’re logged into. Not sure how often I’d use that feature but it sounds neat!

    Hell, the 3 year extended warranty would probably make it worthwhile! ;)
