For those who are not PlayStation Plus subscribers, today Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn has outlined how you can still obtain Journey early access alongside pre-order program details below.

To quote: If you have been following Journey, then you're probably as excited as I am about its release next week on March 13, as the first game in our Spring Fever event this year.

The reviews so far have been fantastic, and I can't wait to get online and experience the game online with other Journey fans.

If you caught Friday's update from Kellee, the last line of her post about big news coming Monday probably had you wondering what sort of news might be coming.

Well, earlier this morning I'm sure you saw this month's PS Plus blog post revealing that Journey will be available this week for all PS Plus members, one week ahead of the normal release date. What's more, this early access purchase comes with a bonus, an exclusive PS3 dynamic theme featuring some concept art from the game.

And if you're not a Plus member, we are also launching a special pre-order program as well. You'll be able to put your money down for the game and get hold of the same concept art dynamic theme as Plus members for doing so. Then when the game hits on March 13 during the normal Tuesday publish, just head to the store and download the game for free.

Watch the Blog and PS Store, because we'll have a few more videos for Journey, an additional dynamic theme (free for Plus members) that will showcase some of the beautiful vistas in the game, and more.

We're also launching a dedicated tab for Journey on the PlayStation Facebook page where you can get an exclusive Journey PSN Avatar starting today, so http://www.facebook.com/PlayStation?sk=app_208195102528120 to check it out.

And don't forget to head over to the Journey live dev chat page to sign up for a reminder, and come back this coming Friday at 10 AM PST to chat live with Jenova Chen (Creative Director) and Robin Hunicke (Executive Producer) from the Journey dev team.
