Premium PSN Slated to Be Announced By Sony at E3 2010

204w ago - The rumored new premium online subscription service, which will cost around £50 per year, is slated to be unveiled by Sony at E3 2010 according to VG247.com (linked above).

This news comes as no big surprise as Sony sent out a survey via IPSOS Online Research on the new service several months back to users.

To quote: "According to a highly-placed source, Sony will announce a large-scale monetizing scheme for PSN at the LA show, but we're assured nothing planned will impact the service's current free aspects.

A string of features will be revealed, apparently costing "less than £50 per year".

Sony will confirm plans to give all subscribers one free PSN game per month, from a choice of "two to four" every month.

"If you work it out, PSN games cost an average of £6-9 each, so over a year you're basically going to be breaking even," said our source.

A streaming music application similar to Spotify will be announced in Sony's press conference on June 15. It's thought that this can run in the background while playing games.

207w ago - Today Producer Yoshinori Ono has officially announced a new Super Street Fighter IV release for Sony's PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: I've listened to PlayStation users voice their opinions for the past 10 years. They've said, "We're waiting for the next numbered sequel to Street Fighter!"

I have to apologize that it took Capcom almost a decade to make the decision... but, I really appreciate your continuous support, and I'm now armed with weapons and armor to fight as Capcom's voice in this tough global market.

It is as if I'm fighting as King Arthur from Ghosts 'n Goblins!

The original Street Fighter IV was released in February 2009. Before that, it has been about 15 years since the SFII series, and 10 years since the SFIII series.

I strongly feel that SFIV wouldn't have happened without your support. I'm glad that Street Fighter is now back, and I'd like to say "thank you" to all of you.

And now SFIV is fully renewed and, to reinforce the upgrades, we've added...
