US PS Plus subscriber area overhauled

By Brenna Hillier, Thursday, 21 July 2011 02:28 GMT

Sony has given the US version of PlayStation Plus a bit of spit and polish this month, on top of the usual stack of new content.

The changes, detailed on the US PS Blog, include a useful Last Chance section highlighting content due to expire in the next network update.

A New Releases section will help you find the newest offers, while content will be helpfully divided into sections – Games, Add Ons, Full Game Trials, and Themes & Avatars.

PS Plus icons have also been re-coloured to make them easier to spot.

Upcoming content highlights include trials of Dragon Age: Origins and Far Cry 2, as well as free DLC for Section 8: Prejudice. The first 1,000 PS Plus members to download Prejudice before August 2 will be rewarded with a free copy of the original Section 8.
