While PlayStation Plus
didn't make a particularly strong debut, it's hard to argue with the value of its newly announced offerings. In addition to earning free access
to Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse
, PlayStation Plus members can expect an even more lucrative bonus: an invite into the beta of the long-awaited DC Universe Online
. While specific timing hasn't been mentioned, the offer will extend to "all" Plus subscribers, instead of the "select" members chosen in previous betas.
The update for December 21st will also include a free trial of Borderlands
and discounts on Neo Geo
software. Sony is certainly making the $50 asking price of Plus seem much more palpable.
