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.
This sounds promising. Looking forward to seeing what those premium features are, probably cross game chat as one of them. Hopefully the free PSN games won’t be restricted to a minis.
