PlayStation Plus and New PS3 & PSP Firmware Is Now Available

Submitted by on June 30, 2010 – 2:20 pm10 Comments

So the winning reason why people stick to PlayStation, besides blu-ray, is because Sony offers a free online network. Sony is now combating in the online gaming community by offering a $50 annual subscription, or $18 for three months, to their PlayStation Plus (PSN+), but is it worth it?

PSN+ launched yesterday along with the release of new firmwares for PS3 and PSP. On top of the current free online subscription, your hard earned money will buy you “enhanced services” like exclusive access to “some” betas, game demos and premium downloadable content (whatever that is) and subscription to Qore (a paid subscription-based interactive online magazine for the PSN). Still didn’t win you over?

Word is PSN titles will be discounted up to 50% and you can try full versions of certain games for an hour. You’ll also get free monthly games attached to your account as long as you’re a subscriber. PSN+ members will also be allowed to cross-game chat, but only with other PSN+ users.

I would suggest waiting for later developments before jumping into the lame hype. Fifty (mo fuggin) dollars for a year of access to “some” betas, full games for one hour, half price on games that probably don’t interest you, and cross-game chatting that should be free? There’s some serious catching up to do to compete with Xbox LIVE. Get PWNED!
