Buser: PlayStation Plus costs less than a cup of coffee

Friday, 8th June 2012 07:59 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A dozen games to keep for your entire membership, with more added every month – and all for less than you’ll pay to feed your Starbucks habit, according to Sony digital boss Jack Buser.

“We’re going to be rotating in new games all the time. If you think about it, as a member, these are all being offered for less than five bucks a month. So you can buy an expensive cup of coffee for more than what it would take for you to access a library of 12 games with new games added all the time,” Buser told GamesIndustry.

“And if you’re a member, and you’ve already downloaded it, you get to keep it as long as you’re a member. Not only do you get tons of free games, but you also get huge discounts. We’re talking discounts of 20, 30, 50 percent off some games.

“As well as things like cloud saves, automatic updates, all these great features that just super amplify your PlayStation 3 experience. It’s truly that instant game collection we’re really going to be focusing on because that’s what is going to make people sign up for the service first and foremost.”

He’s selling it pretty well, right? I don’t even like coffee. The first wave of PlayStation Plus’s new content hit in this week’s PlayStation Store update.

    It’s very easy to spend over £3.33 on a coffee in Starbucks/Costa/whatever.

    Does his coffee come with a free PS3 to play this stuff on?

    With this new re-vamp, anyone who doesn’t see the value in PS+ is an absolute moron.

    Well, at least it’s plausible. They offer games for your money and a few more services. If you look at the competition where you pay just to connect, it’s not a bad deal.
