PlayStation 4 launch freebies include $10 digital credit, 30-day PS Plus and Music Unlimited trials

17

The launch of any new console can do some serious damage to your bank account. But one week ahead of the PlayStation 4's launch, Sony is announcing a trio of free pack-ins meant to reward games who invest in the console early on. For a limited time, PS4 buyers in the United States and Canada will receive three bonuses packed in with the console. First is $10 worth of PlayStation Store credit that you're free to use however you'd like, be it for a game purchase or HD movie rental. Next is a 30-day trial for Sony's Music Unlimited service. Unfortunately, this one's only valid for new premium plan subscribers.

But the third voucher is arguably the most important of all three: PS4 owners in North America will get 30 days to try out PlayStation Plus. Sony's monthly service is required for most online multiplayer gaming, so we're happy to hear that Sony is making it easy for users to get acclimated with Plus. You'll also have access to other perks that come with membership including Sony's Instant Game Collection and cloud storage for your game saves.
