- Earlier this year Sony rolled out a PlayStation Protection Plan
, and today PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen
has confirmed that PS Plus members will be entitled to a 25% off discount on it!
To quote: Earlier this year, we introduced the PlayStation Protection Plan, an extended service plan for the PlayStation 3 and PSP system.
This service was introduced to give gamers peace of mind by providing an additional one or two years of coverage on top of their one year limited manufacturer's warranty.
Some of the plan benefits include free shipping, no hidden fees or deductibles and utilization of OEM parts and service technicians... PS3 plans are now available for download directly from the PlayStation Store.
However, in continuing our goal to provide PlayStation Plus subscribers with exclusive offerings and even more value to their entertainment experience on the PlayStation Network, we are now offering the PlayStation Protection Plan to subscribers for a discounted price.
PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to purchase a two year PS3 plan for 25% off (PlayStation Plus price $44.99, original price $59.99) Considering the PS3 one year plan is $44.99, PLUS members get two years for the price of one! In order to qualify for any of the plans, your PlayStation 3 must still be within its one-year original manufacturer's warranty.
We are happy to continue to offer new features to the PlayStation Plus subscribers. With a little less than three months in the books, PlayStation Plus continues to evolve giving gamers an excellent set of content and features for their PlayStation 3.
