Another Week, Another PlayStation Round-Up. Check out what’s been happening in the week of PlayStation.
This Weekend PlayStation 4 Multiplayer is FREE and open to all, regardless of whether you own a PS Plus account or not. This promotional event will allow all PS4 owners to experience multiplayer for free. From Friday February 13th at 6am until Monday February 16th 6 am (UK time). The multiplayer access is completely unrestricted, allowing access to all PS4 games and their multiplayer modes, including Destiny, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Dying Light, and Far Cry 4 to name a few.
Sony Back On Top!
In a turn around from the holiday season, Sony has stated that PlayStation is back on top in sales. “PlayStation 4 was the top selling console in January and remains the cumulative leader in the U.S. according to NPD data. In either case, console sales are up 60% higher than they were for the previous generation consoles (the xbox 360 and PS3) at this time last year. That includes both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sales through January.
The CEO of CBS Les Moonves has announced a new deal with Sony, allowing the network channel to be on Sony’s new internet TV service PlayStation Vue. Moonves was quoted stating “they’re (sony) paying more than everyone else” for the ability to allow CBS shows to be viewed outside of the channel. We may be seeing some awesome CBS shows (NCIS, Stalker) through the PlayStation Vue TV service soon. Check out details HERE.
Upgrade your PSN Sub Accounts!
PSN sub accounts are now eligible to be upgraded to master accounts through the internet, and soon through the PlayStation 4 itself. Previously, sub accounts couldn’t be upgraded, even after the user reached the age of 18, now though users can not only upgrade their sub accounts to master accounts, they will also transfer their friends list, trophies, any PSN store purchases, as well as the full range of online features available to the PlayStation. Their online ID, games, videos, music, all services will transfer. The service is available for PlayStation 3, Playstation 4, and PlayStation Vita members. Sub accounts are accounts created for minors under 18 that must be created in conjunction and association with a master account held by a parent or guardian. Can we hope for more innovation such as online ID name changes as well? Details on how to upgrade your accounts are HERE.
