Sony may be changing up its paid subscription service

According to a report by Eurogamer, Sony is preparing a revamp of its PlayStation Plus paid online service, with a full reveal at its E3 2012 press event. Multiple sources told Eurogamer that one of the ways Sony will improve the service is by providing top-tier titles to subscriber for free. This will be an expansion of the current PlayStation Plus program which gives users limited time access to certain PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network titles.

The sources have also pointed to improved PlayStation Vita integration for Plus subscribers. The portable version of the service will offer exclusive titles, DLC, and cloud options, allowing subscribers to access their saves and content without connecting to a PC or PS3.

This revamp of PlayStation Plus may come with a redesigned PlayStation Store including purchases made from a user's PC.

I've been a PS+ subscriber for almost a year now, and I have to say it's already fantastic value for money. I've had dozens of free games from full retail titles and great PSN games to classic PS1 and Megadrive games, plus big discounts on lots of other games, and access to free one hour trials for over 30 titles. You also get cloud storage for save games (although they really need to provide more space, mine's full!), auto-downloading of patches at a time of your choice, and early access to some PSN titles (including Journey, which is the best game I've played all year).

I know Sony have had a lot of stick about their online services in the past, but in many ways they're head and shoulders above the competition.

I wish MS would take notice and offer free games to gold members, MS could learn from Sony's PS+
