According to Eurogamer, tech heavyweight Sony will announce the revamp of the PlayStation 3 paid subscription service “PlayStation Plus” at E3 next week. The revamp will also introduce integration with the handheld PlayStation Vita. Sony’s press conference, set for Monday the 4th, will have a large part of it devoted to going through details of the revamp and what new additions subscribers can expect.
Obviously the integration of the PS Vita will go down well with gamer’s, but other features such as, subscribers getting “top-tier” games for free and allowing gamers to back up their saved games and content without needing to attach the Vita to your Playstation 3 or PC will be nice additions.
Right now a Playstation Plus Subscription will cost you $49.00 for a year or $17.99 for a 90-day membership. Premium subscribers already get, full PS3 game trials, discounts, free DLC, temporary access to free games, cloud saving and early access to game demos and betas.
PlayStation Plus content manager Ross McGrath took to Twitter recently, to make the revamp sound even more mouth-watering.
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,”
What PlayStation Plus users will be asking now is if the price will become higher with the new features being added in the revamp. If you want to find out, then make sure to tune in Monday the 4th so Sony can give you the full lowdown on what to expect. Or check back here, we will have it covered.
