Sony Slashes Music Unlimited Prices for PlayStation Plus Members

PlayStation Plus really is the gift that keeps on giving. Not content with lavishing subscribers with dozens of free games every month, European members will now be able to secure a year’s access to Sony’s audio streaming service Music Unlimited for just £11.99. That represents a cool saving of £107.89.

For those out of the loop, Music Unlimited allows you to stream millions of songs, albums, and artists, on-demand, without any annoying interruptions. Better yet, the service is available on a slew of different devices, including computers, smartphones, the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation Vita, and all other "enabled Sony devices". We’re going to assume that you’ve got access to at least one of those.

You can find the promotion under the PlayStation Plus section of the PlayStation Store, but hurry, the offer’s set to close at midnight on 31st December. If you’re still undecided, have a good ol' waltz over to the PlayStation Blog for more information.

You wonder how Sony plan on making any money with all the Plus benefits. Not that I'm complaining.

I think this is Sony's planing to do with PS+(This is just a guess):
1. Sony normaly give or discounts games that are already a bit old or are not selling well to satisfy PS+ users.
2. They want to increase hype and popularity of "x" IP giving a game to their users for example: Resident evil 5 after releasing Resident Evil 6 and Borderlands 1 just few months before Borderlands 2.
3. Increase sells on Vita.
4. Make PS+ users keep using their systems.
5. Increase sales of DLC of old games.

@Epic Yeah, it's an interesting model. I agree with all of those points. It also draws attention to the PlayStation Store (where they can market other games at consumers). I would love to understand how it works behind the scenes.

I know, I know, I know but it just seems incredible that when they're apparently struggling money-wise (or not, as some reports suggest) that someone at the top of Sony is saying "GIVE THINGS AWAY!" when they're normally such greedy bastards.

Wasn't this offer also in the US? I'm pretty sure that I received message about this too. It's a really awesome offer so I've been trying to find out if any of my mobile devices support the unlimited music app.

I bought a year membership for that price. My gf wanted me to setup the FM radio on my new 7.1 receiver... closeenough.jpg

fantastic deal. I definitely bought it. Servers are having issues though because of what I assume is a huge rush of new customers. At least once a day the server crashes for a while on me. And the iphone app needs some help too (crashes, freezes, inability to "like" a song if you searched for it)
