Rumor: PSN monetization plans unveiled at E3

Sony may be unveiling those long-rumored PlayStation Network premium subscription plans in a few weeks’ time; citing “a highly-placed source,” VG247‘s reporting that Sony’s chosen next month’s E3 as the place to make the announcement.

For “less than £50 per year,” the source claims, players can expect to be treated to a free-of-charge monthly PSN game (from a choice of 2-4). Details beyond that are thin but there is one thing the source made clear about the supposedly large-scale monetizing scheme, “There’s nothing in the premium package which will gimp regular PSN users.”

Sony’s E3 press conference takes place on June 15.
