February 8, 2010Written by Zak Islam

Sony has revealed that they are “actively thinking” about some sort of premium PSN service, and also reveal their plans for digital distribution.

In an interview with IGN, Sony’s VP of marketing, Peter Dille, talks about the the PlayStation Network:

It’s been our philosophy not to charge for [PlayStation Network] from launch up until now, but Kaz recently went on the record as saying that’s something we’re looking at. I can confirm that as well. That’s something that we’re actively thinking about.

Dille also comments about the future of digital distribution:

We’re also working very hard to make sure we do this thoughtfully so that retail has a part to participate in the ecosystem with us. But, the notion of getting all your games digitally, I just don’t see it happening.There’s games you’re going to get at the store, there’s games you’re going to get on PlayStation Network and there’s some you’ll get in both places, and then there’s also opportunity to enhance the micro-transactions and add-on content, of course, but getting God of War III digitally? That’s just not something you’ll be seeing anytime soon.

Kaz Hirai, CEO of Sony, has mentioned that Sony is studying the possibility of introducing a subscription model.
