With a pay service comes a hefty amount of exclusive offers and features. Here is what Playstation Plus has to offer:
- discounts on randomly selected DLC (much like Microsoft's Deal of the Week)
- free DLC (that cost's money for non-subscribers)
- exclusive early access to demos and betas
- the digital Qore magazine - free
- free full game trials for any game up to one hour before you have to make a purchasing decision
- auto downloading (which downloads patches, select demos and game videos, etc. all without ever having to think about it
Playstation Plus is 50 dollars a year and if you purchase a subscription at the outset you get 15 months for the same price. Seperate three month packs are available for 18 dollars.
