Welcome Back To PlayStation Plus

Update: It has just been confirmed that, due to the Store coming back a little later than we hoped, the extra days added to Plus memberships is being extended by another 10 days so you are getting a total of 70 days extra for free. This will show up automatically on your account in the next few days.

New PlayStation Plus Content

Hi guys, It’s great to be back on here to let you know what great content is coming up in Plus and what we are doing for Plus members to say thank you for your patience during the time the network has been down.

Here is what’s included in the welcome back package with regards to Plus:

  • If you were a Plus member on or before the 21st April, we have automatically added a full 60 days onto your Plus membership to make sure you get back any time missed. You don’t need to do anything to get this; it has been added to your account and your membership will simply carry on for 60 days past the original renewal date.
  • We will be keeping April’s content on the Plus section of the Store for a further 2 weeks in case you missed anything before the 21st.
  • We have an action packed month for you in June and, for the first time, we have a fantastic EA title for you – our flagship title this month is the amazing open-world racing game and the king of arcade racing. Burnout Paradise is available to download as part of June’s content list so don’t miss it.
