Sony Offering Three Months Of PlayStation Plus Free With Yearly Subscription

Sony Offering Three Months Of PlayStation Plus Free With Yearly Subscription

April 21, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Sony is offering a new deal on its PlayStation Plus reward scheme, giving any PSN user who buys a yearly subscription for PlayStation Plus an extra three months for free.

Revealed in a post on the official PlayStation blog, the offer is available up until May 3. Both new customers and existing PlayStation Plus users can take advantage of the deal.

"Even if you have a membership already, you can stack another one on top and the 15 months will roll on when your current subscription ends" said James Thorpe, PlayStation Network product manager.

Sony temporarily offered a similar three-months-free offer with annual subscriptions when the customer loyalty service launched last year.

Sony noted that April is the "biggest month" for the reward scheme, with users getting "a saving equivalent to almost a two year membership, all in just one festive month".

The PlayStation Plus subscription service was released last year, giving subscribers early access to betas and demos, a photo gallery, a video editor, Facebook and YouTube applications, a five-star rating system for PlayStation Store content, and automated power save settings for the PS3 console.

Last month, Sony added functionality allowing Plus users to have access to online storage for their game saves. The service allows users to store up to 150 megabytes of save data remotely, to a maximum of 1000 data files per account.
