Sony to Unveil New PlayStation Plus Offering?

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – A new PlayStation Plus offering could be in the plans of technology provider Sony. According to a report from, sources have signaled that the company intends to introduce the new offering at next month’s E3 conference in Los Angeles, California.

Features of the new platform could provide Plus subscribers with free games and new gaming integration for PlayStation Vita, the company’s handheld device rolled out earlier this year, according to the site. New cloud-based gaming could also be in the mix.

Even though nothing’s been confirmed directly through Sony, a possible hint was recently left on the Twitter page of PlayStation Plus content manager Ross McGrath. “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,” commented McGrath last Tuesday.

A subscription to Sony’s PlayStation Plus provides users with exclusive access to content, online game saves, automatic updates, discounts and more. In the United States, users can get the service for a year with one payment of $14.00 or receive it for three months at a price of $17.99.

Sony’s rumored revamp of PlayStation Plus follows an announcement by rival Microsoft earlier this month in which the Xbox 360 creator said it’d offer a bundled version of its console for $99 dollars with a year’s subscription to Xbox Live Gold.
