PlayStation Plus has been around for an incredible four years now, but it’s only really hit its stride over the past twelve months or so. While the service started life as a neat extra for engaged players, it’s blossomed into an obligatory add-on, propelled partially by the fact that the PlayStation 4 requires a subscription for online play, but also the overall quality of the Instant Game Collection.

With the membership now very much a selling point for Sony’s suite of systems, the platform holder has produced a big-budget television commercial that demonstrates the value of joining – and it’s set to debut this week in North America. It shows four friends in a variety of different scenarios, and hones in on the idea that you’ll be able to “experience more” as a subscriber.

Honestly, we reckon that all the Japanese giant needed to do was list all of the titles currently available for the service in order to promote it, but we suppose that this will grab a more ‘casual’ audience’s attention more effectively. Are you a fan of the video, and do you think that it’s successful in selling the benefits of PlayStation’s primary premium membership? Change your costume in the comments section below.
