After years of offering a totally free online experience, Sony has announced an add-on subscription service to the PlayStation Network called PlayStation Plus.

All the current features of a standard PlayStation Network membership will continue uninterrupted; PlayStation Plus will work as a premium service, allowing PS3 owners early access to certain game demos, discounts, digital content, automatic updates, and other perks like the PlayStation lifestyle series Qore.

PlayStation Plus will cost $50 a year or $18 for three months. All content from PlayStation Plus is only usable during the length of the subscription, so users won't have access to it after that time period is up.

Plus will launch later this month and will allow PS3 owners a free three-month taste of the service.
