PlayStation Plus provides its subscribers with goodies such as free PSOne games, discounted PSN titles and cloud saving. For some players however it isn’t enough to tempt them to part with their cash on a regular basis and sign up for a subscription. It seems though that Sony has plans in place to try and increase the PS Plus user base, by offering a tiered payment system.
Although currently only a rumor, IGN report that a survey sent out to one of their readers (amongst others we imagine) is asking what gamers would expect from a service that would be split into three separate billing structures.
Examples given in the survey for the most expensive option would be a free subscription to the Call of Duty Elite package in collaboration with Activision, and even full price new titles. Although this is all hypothetical at the moment, I could well imagine the current PS plan carrying on more or less identically, with a more expensive and cheaper option providing more or less free content as appropriate.
When IGN asked Sony about their plans, they replied by saying; “We have nothing specific to announce at this time, but PlayStation Plus continues to delight gamers with free games, huge discounts and exclusive gaming features that can’t be found on other platforms.”
What do you guys think? Are you happy with PS Plus as it stands? Would you be willing to pay more to get more free or discounted stuff? Or are you content just to play for free online and pick up the stuff you want when you want it? Personally I think more early and exclusive content is the way to go to make people really buy into the service. Let us know your thoughts.
