During the latest PlayStation Blogcast, Sony has announced that it is bringing Killzone 3’s complete multiplayer suite to the PlayStation Network as a standalone download next week. The component will be free to download, but will have a level cap in place requiring you to stump up $15 in order to unlock the full mode.

While this idea sounds pretty novel, it’s not the first time Sony’s tried something like it. A couple of years back it also released a free version of MMO-like shooter, MAG, which also incorporated a level cap in order to drive sales.

It’s a win-win situation for Sony as well as consumers as far as we’re concerned. Getting to try something before you buy it can never be a bad thing, and who knows, you might actually like it.
