Sony Discounting Protection Plan for PlayStation Plus Subscribers

August 24, 2010Written by Zak Islam

Sony has announced that in continuing their goal to provide PlayStation Plus subscribers with exclusive offerings and adding more value to the entertainment experience on the ever-growing PlayStation Network, the company will now be offering the PlayStation Protection Plan to subscribers for a discounted price.

PlayStation Plus subscribers will now be able to purchase a two year PlayStation 3 plan for 25% off (PlayStation Plus price $44.99, original price $59.99). The normal PS3 one year plan is $44.99, where as PlayStation Plus members get two years for the price of one. However, keep in mind that in order to qualify for any of the discounted plans, your PlayStation 3 must still be within its one-year original manufacturer’s warranty.

It’s refreshing, especially after all the demands of making more offers to PlayStation Plus members, that Sony are finally stepping it up a notch and offering some enticing incentives with their PlayStation Network premium service. Hopefully they continue to do so as they have promised and PlayStation Plus users reap in great benefits a la discounted PlayStation Protection plans.

For those who are unclear, adding a PlayStation Protection Plan extends your coverage on a single system by 12 or 24 months. For more information on the plan, click here.
