Sony has finally revealed a pay subscription service for the PlayStation Network. The service, called PlayStation Plus, will run you $49.99 for a one-year subscription and $17.99 for three months; it will launch later this month. For a limited time, you'll get three additional months for free if you buy a one-year subscription. While the regular PSN services will not change at all, PS Plus will give you extra stuff and support on top of what already comes free.

Those who do decide to upgrade will get such things as early demos, exclusive access to betas, "free" content like games, themes and PSP minis, discounts on PlayStation Store games, automatic downloads of upcoming demos you may be interested in, and updates. The first month of service will feature Wipeout HD for free, a trial of inFamous, two PSP minis and the PSOne classic Rally Cross. In the second month, Qore will be added.

Of course, this is Sony, so they've gotta mess it up somehow. All that "free" content you're getting, you only own it if you stay subscribed to the service. I guess that's to keep people from signing up for a month, downloading the free games and then leaving, but man, does it still suck.

I wish this Mario Kart movie was real

What happens when you apply the over-the-top seriousness from that Need for Speed movie trailer to Mario Kart? Magic. Thanks, GamesRadar.more

The first trailer for the Need for Speed movie is here

Oh you didn't forget, did you? There's going to be a Need for Speed movie, and it's going to star Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. The first trailer for the movie has plenty of cliché going for it, you know, the same kind of stuff you've seen from movies about racing cars before. Need for Speed (the movie) revs up its first trailer [Flixist]more
