VG247 has learnt that Sony is to reveal plans for PSN’s premium services at E3. According to a highly-placed source, Sony will announce a large-scale monetizing scheme for PSN at the LA show next month, but it will not impact the service’s current free aspects (like online gaming).
Sony is planing to reveal a number of premium features for the Network, apparently costing “less than £50 per year”. Sony will confirm plans to give all subscribers one free PSN game per month, from a choice of “two to four” every month. “If you work it out, PSN games cost an average of £6-9 each, so over a year you’re basically going to be breaking even,” said our source.
Sony is also planning to announce a music steaming application similar to Spotify, according to VG247.
