    Rumor: Playstation Plus To become revamped, Actually become good.

    Sony prepping PlayStation Plus revamp with top tier free games, expansion to Vita • News • Eurogamer.net



    Sony is readying a revamp of PlayStation Plus to be revealed during its E3 press conference, Eurogamer understands.

    Multiple sources have indicated that part of Sony's E3 press conference, set for Monday 4th June, will be devoted to running through the revamp, which is designed to help convince more people to sign up to the premium subscription service.
    One of the ways Sony will do this is by giving subscribers top tier games for free, and implementing proper integration with PS Vita. Plus on Vita will offer Vita exclusive titles and DLC and cloud services that mean you won't have to connect the handheld to a PlayStation 3 or a PC to back up saves and other content.


    Currently PlayStation Plus, which costs 39.99 for a one-year membership and 11.99 for a 90-day membership, grants full game trials, automatic updates, cloud game saving, discounts and early access to content. Sony says Plus offers content worth around 200 a year.

    While a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson declined to comment on our report, PlayStation Plus content manager Ross McGrath expressed his enthusiasm for the service on his Twitter page.

    "By the way, if you don't have a PS+ subscription, now is the time to get one. For real. Just get 3 months if you aren't sure. Trust me," he said.

    Earlier this month several possible tiers of subscription options were highlighted by a user survey designed to poll potential customers on what they would like Plus' rewards to focus on, including offering new releases free of charge.

    One possible tier would offer 61 new "A" quality games a year, but with only one PS3 release a week. Sony's suggested price would be a $7.99 (about a fiver) monthly fee, with three-month and yearly price plans also available. Another option offers 80 games a year, mostly "C" and "B" quality, for $10 a month (about 6). Titles would be at least a year old, although 10 full PS3 releases would be offered every week.

    The revamp of PlayStation Plus marks the beginning of a wider effort to improve the PlayStation Network across multiple devices over the coming year, and, we've heard, may include a new, redesigned PlayStation Store that also facilitates purchases from a proper PC web store similar to Xbox Marketplace.

    Eurogamer has also heard from a separate source that Sony has secured the cloud gaming services of either OnLive or Gaikai. Reports indicate this deal could be announced at E3, although it may not directly relate to a PlayStation console, rather, cloud gaming through Sony televisions. Both Gaikai and OnLive declined to comment on our report, but in an email to Eurogamer Gaikai teased "some major announcements in store for E3 that have the potential to change the future of video games, game consoles and how we play".


    they need to do this if they want to survive in the market, More good things = more money.

    the title of this thread is misleading, should be "
    Rumor: Playstation Plus To become revamped, will become better."

    PSN + is already good.

    Everything else (if comes true) makes me excited.

    PS+ is already good. 1000X better than live is. It has so much more to offer than live as well, and in some places, it is better than Steam.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    Good news to hear. Would be better if they upgraded the cloud storage to 2GB. But, that's just me

    If they announce better stuff for PS+ and better services I might buy it, and If they announce good games for Vita, I will buy it. That simple

    As people has said the: "Actually becomes good" part is unwarranted bashing and unneeded. Would you please at least try to keep the biasism to a minimum? Ok, Thanks!

    On topic:...... Hell Yeah!

    I'm not going to complain about getting some free good stuff I'm happy enough as it is with it. I would like some a lot of Vita support.The only problems I have with cloud saves are that although you get enough room you don't get enough individual slots.

    To this, I say meh.

    I've personally never found PS+ to be even near worth it. Sure, I get a bunch of free shit, but most of the bunch of free shit is crap that I don't need nor want. Ooooh! I get to have a new free avatar that non PS+ members don't have access to! Yeah, like I care.

    Sure, there are good deals here and there, but nothing I can't live without. I'm thoroughly satisfied with buying and enjoying a great game, and nothing more.

    Survive the market? They are EASILY surviving the market. When have they not been surviving the market?

    More awesome games for free makes me a happy camper.
