revealed today that the PlayStation revolution continues with PlayStation Plus on PS4!
To quote: Hi everyone! The gaming revolution that is PlayStation Plus will continue to grow on PS4.
If you are already a PlayStation Plus member you don't need to do anything, you can sit back and relax as your membership will automatically include all the PS3, PS Vita and PS4 features of the service when it goes live on day one.
PlayStation Plus is available now and will continue to be available for a one-off payment of €49.99/£39.99. However, as you might have heard during the gamescom press conference today, if you purchase a one year membership through PlayStation Store up until 20th September we'll give you an additional 90 days at no extra cost!
Right now, let's just cover off a few things to make sure that you have all the information you could possibly need:
Much like the PS3 and PS Vita service, we will be delivering a game which will remain in the service for a number of months and it gives me great pleasure to announce that this will be the DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition!
Born from an extreme passion for cars and racing games, Evolution Studios has produced a game that started as a concept project nearly a decade ago and has become a reality thanks to the power of the PS4.
DRIVECLUB is a racing game like no other, it's a social experience that encourages players to join clubs and compete with others. Although beating fellow racers on the road is at the core of competition, the race to complete challenges is what we hope will really get you all excited.
On top of DRIVECLUB we will also be delivering you one hero game a month in the PS4 part of the service, and the first of these games is another brand new IP titled RESOGUN.
As the spiritual successor to Super Stardust, Resogun is a side-scrolling, twin stick, shoot-em-up with a unique and distinctive art style that really showcases the power of the PS4. See today's Blog post from developer Housemarque for more.
Cloud storage and discounts
I can confirm that on top of the combined 2GB cloud storage we currently provide for PS3 and PS Vita users, members with a PS4 will receive an additional 1GB of cloud storage.
PlayStation Plus is committed to attempting to secure exclusive and additional discounts on PS Store products for our members and this will continue to be the case as we move into the PS4 generation.
14 day trial
Do you love your PS Plus membership and want to get all your friends involved? Well, we are very happy to say that we will be introducing a 14 day trial for all PS4 owners which will provide instant access to all the features of the service, including the Instant Game Collection, cloud storage and immersive online multiplayer play.
What do you need PS Plus for?
To ensure that you are getting the most out of your PS4, PlayStation Plus is the only place where you can fully experience immersive online multiplayer play. With an ever growing community this is the ideal place to play with friends, meet fellow gamers and share your gaming experiences. All other features of PS Plus on PS4 will be exactly the same as the current service, including full access to video services for all.
1 month membership
We will be providing the opportunity for users to sign up to a one month membership to PlayStation Plus. The price will be €6.99/£5.99 per month. More details of when this will be available will be coming soon.
If you like the sound of everything above and you are not currently a Plus member, visit our PlayStation Plus site
to find out more about the service. Here you'll learn all you need to know about a one year membership to the Instant Game Collection all for a one-off payment of just €49.99 / £39.99.
Remember, if you've not got access to your PS3 or PS Vita then you can also buy through our online store
