PlayStation Plus Birthday Bash

In order to celebrate turning 1, Sony has given the PlayStation Plus service a little extra moxy for a limited time only. You'll have to sign up for PlayStation Plus to enjoy the extra bonus months, so this deal is likely only good for those among us that have been considering the service for a bit now.

Here's what the PlayStation.Blog had to offer concerning the news.

Starting today, lasting through July 11th, when you purchase a PlayStation Plus 1-year package, you’ll get 3 additional months, and gamers who sign up for the 3 month package get 1 additional month. That’s 15 months for the price of 12 (just over $3 per month) or 4 months for the price of 3 (less than $5 per month). There’s no better time to sign up for PlayStation Plus and take advantage of these birthday savings!

The hack and subsequent outage that happened to the PlayStation Network roughly two months ago spurred Sony to offer a brief subscription to PlayStation Plus for free. There's a chance that those new users will get used to and fall in love with the benefits being a Plus subscriber provides.

If you fall into that category of gamers, then this offer is for you. Make haste, though, as the bonus month parade ends on July 11th.
