Rumor: Sony to reveal premium PSN+ services at E3


Rumor has it that Sony's set to reveal a premium for PSN called PSN+ during its E3 media blast.

According to sources close to Joystiq, the service will provide subscribers with "additional bonuses" and will not limit multiplayer between paying and nonpaying customers.

Sources claim that subscribers will be privy to: a rotating list of PSP Minis and PSone Classics; exclusive DLC; PlayStation Store discounts; an auto-patching feature; and "first hour" demo access to full retail titles.

After playing a game for an hour, users would then have the option to purchase the full game - which means that you have to download the full game just for the demo.

PSN+ subscribers will also be included in the PlayStation Protection Plan, the rumored cloud-based saving option, and cross-game voice chat - which has been claimed before.

Another source close to Joystiq also speculates PSN+ will run players $9.99 a month, which may be a completely different animal to the "less that $50" a year plan.

Sony has responded to the source's claims that it does not "comment on rumors or speculation."

We'll send a mail, but we expect the same response. Hopefully E3 will reveal all.
