Earlier this month, we had written about a Premium PSN that could be launched by Sony next month at E3. The service, that was expected to cost $70 a year, was expected to bring a free new game to the user besides offering a Spotify-like music streaming service to the PlayStation Network.
Now, there are more confirmed rumors about the service. According to a report on Joystiq, the service shall be labeled PSN+ and it will include a lot more things than just a music streaming service. Here is what we hear are the offerings
- Rotating list of PSP Mini and PSone Classic games
- Exclusive In-Game downloadable content
- PlayStation Store discount
- Full access to retail titles for one hour, dubbed “first hour” demo
- PlayStation Protection Plan
- Cross-Game Voice Chat
- Cloud-based saving system
- Auto-Patching feature for automatic installation of updates
The pricing is expected to be around $9.99 a month which is pretty higher than earlier speculations.
