Following on from our report at the weekend – where we hinted at a remixed PS3, streaming and expansions to the current PlayStation Plus service – further rumours have surfaced in relation to the same discussion.
“Multiple sources have indicated that part of Sony’s E3 press conference,” say Eurogamer, “will be devoted to running through the revamp, which is designed to help convince more people to sign up to the premium subscription service.”
Will our discussion about a PS3 refresh come to fruition?
The other rumours point to integrating PS Vita with the existing service – exclusive games, massive discounts and cloud saving, all of which are currently missing from the portable’s Plus subscription details.
SCEE’s Ross McGrath continues to hype whatever’s coming via Twitter – “oh f**k, absolutely yes,” he said today when asked about buying Plus from an Australian user, based on his earlier Tweets. He’s confident, but knows what’s going on.
To be fair, these latest rumours don’t really say anything that we haven’t already heard or discussed, but it’s reasonable to remember that there’s rarely fire without smoke, so – as we said a few days back – all eyes on Sony this E3. If Plus is boosted as much as we’re hoping, it could be massive.
