Default PSN premium details to be announced at E3

VG247 Blog Archive Premium PSN plans for E3 reveal, to cost “less than 50 per year”

So basically, everything available through PSN (ie. online play) will remain free, but a premium service will be available which gives you a free PSN game each month and access to some other apps and various features like earlier demos and beta access.

And it looks like cross game voice chat is on it's way and will be free for everyone.

Doesn't sound too bad, doubt I will subscribe to it though, just glad online play will remain free (and that's the way it bloody well should be Micro$oft!)

EDIT: Almost forgot, there's also a rumour that the sub will give you unlimited access to PSone classics, download and play as many and as much as you want as long as you're subscribed.

Thanks Chief on the update.

Could be interesting for all those die hard fans of the earier PSone games. Not sure I would do the upgrade either. Would have to see what's on offer.

If it makes the online side of things as good as xbox does it i will pay. Xbox live shits all over PS3 atm.

I'll probably sign up, but the games better be worth it.

I hate things which offer "free music" for a subscription, and it's just 100 crap songs.

I'm hoping that when it's officially released they offer us a free month to check it out. If I'm not mistaken xbox live offers something similar to new users.
