    PlayStation Plus Details

    The Premium PlayStation Plus Service will launch this week. For $18 for three months or $50 a year, gamers will receive a smorgasboard of goodies, including Wipeout HD as a sign-up bonus, a subscription to the monthly PSN-exclusive video show Qore (which includes special demos and betas), discounts on DLC in the PSN store, and access to full games from PSP Minis and PS One Classics.

    In addition, you’ll be able to play a trial of a digital PS3 game, where you’ll get to play the game for an hour and then decide to buy it or delete it.  If you purchase it, you can continue your game save where you left off.

    The Automatic Updating feature will allow you to schedule your console to wake up from standby at a certain time to download system and software updates, then shut down again. If you sign up for PlayStation Plus, you’ll get an additional three months added to a one year subscription.
