New PlayStation Plus Content, Free 90 Day Subscription Arrives
SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has detailed the upcoming PlayStation Plus October through November content today, and announced that new subscribers are eligible for a free 90 day subscription that will be added on if they sign up for one year to Sony's premium service.
To quote: Hope you enjoyed September's PlayStation Plus content. Did you all work your way through all chapters of Sam and Max?
As you can see, the November list isn't quite complete because we are working on a couple of surprises that we hope to be able to announce this time next month. Keep your suggestions coming in - we are listening and we always do what we can.
Sounds to me that this extra 90 days is just an incentive to sign up after so few people actually want to pay for this already great free service. It doesn't matter how much they give away with plus, the content they give is utter crap!
It seems Sony is better off just focusing on a free service and adding as much as possible to it. Live works great and is pretty awesome, but I'm not sure why I should pay Microsoft for the privilege of accessing my Netflix subscription via my 360. Sony should capitalize on the fact that the more people have access to your content, the more content you sell.
