PlayStation Plus free this weekend

Sony would like you to try out multiplayer on your PS4, so it’s making the first taste free. This weekend, you’ll be able to enjoy the PlayStation Plus service without paying a cent, just to see if you like it.

PlayStation Plus!

PlayStation Plus!

The PS4 uses a slightly different plan than the PS3, which did not require PlayStation Plus for all online services. Now though, you’ll need that premium service if you want to enjoy multiplayer on the platform.

So, starting off on September 26 at 12:01am PT (What’s that in my timezone?) and running until September 28 at 11:59pm PT (What’s that in my timezone?), the entire service will be available free.

This is particularly neat if you’ve recently picked up a game like Destiny, Diablo III or Madden NFL 15 and haven’t yet seen the online multiplayer elements (plus all the other nifty stuff that PS Plus brings with it!).

It’d be nice if this then lead into a discounted subscription offer, but Sony‘s hoping you like PlayStation Plus so much you’ll sign up on Monday regardless.
