PlayStation Plus 1st Anniversary: Content, Competition And Cake

438 51


Hi Guys, apologies for not being able to get you the July content list earlier than this, but we wanted to make sure we worked right up to the end to get you some great content.

It’s hard to believe that PlayStation Plus is already a year old, but I guess time flies when your enjoying so many exclusives, betas, PSN games, minis, PS one Classics, dynamic themes and avatars.

We’ve been having a look back at what content has been available to Plus members in the first year and have discovered something we thought you guys might find interesting – while we said we’d deliver over £200 of content during the year, we totted up the totals for all the games, discounts themes and avatars and the value actually came to over £700*. In anyone’s eyes that’s a pretty good deal for under £3.50** a month!


We didn’t want the value to stop there. To celebrate the Plus Anniversary we are offering you some great content, with more coming throughout the month, and these two great sign up offers to choose from (Available from the 6th July to the 3rd August 2011) –

  • Sign up for a 12 month Plus subscription and get an extra 3 months for free.
  • Sign up for a 12 month Plus subscription and get SEGA Rally Online Arcade for free and to keep forever.

You don’t have to worry about missing out on these offers if you’re already a subscriber – you can take advantage of the deal by renewing now before your current subscription expires. If you want it all – the free game and 15 months for the price of 12 – you can sign up to both 12 month subscription offers but you must purchase the 15 for 12 subscription first, and then purchase the SEGA Rally subscription. That way you’ll be able to enjoy the classic SEGA racing game, and when your first 15 months subscription expires your PlayStation Plus subscription will automatically carry on for another 12 months without you having to lift a finger.

If you are a Welcome Back Free Plus user then you will need to wait until your free membership finishes before you purchase a Plus membership. Don’t worry, if you renew to a paying membership, you’ll also keep the content you got during your free trial.


And finally, to say thanks to everyone supporting Plus, we are going to hold a prize draw that all Plus members are in with a chance to win. Here are the prizes you could win, just for being a Plus member –

1st Prize – Sony Entertainment package, including 46″ 3D Bravia TV, extra 3D glasses, a PS3 320GB, a PSPgo, PlayStation Move starter pack with extra controller and navigation controllers, a selection of 10 PS3 games, PlayTV and a 5 year PlayStation Plus membership.

That’s a prize package worth almost £4,000!

2nd prize – three people will each a one years Plus membership

3rd Prize – 100 people will win a 90 day Plus membership

To be in with the chance to win, you simply need to have an active 90 day or 1 year PlayStation Plus subscription at 11.59PM GMT on 3 August 2011***.To see if you’ve won, keep an eye on and, and good luck!
