Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on Nov 08, 2013 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

After months of anticipation, we’re just a week away from the launch of PlayStation 4 in the United States and Canada. Starting at midnight on November 15th, you’ll be able to see for yourself what the future of gaming and entertainment looks like.

The network now expands across a wide array of digital entertainment including incredible multi-player gameplay, availability of full games day and date, streaming movies and TV shows, and a premium cloud-based music service. We are excited to provide those of you in the US and Canada with a special promotional voucher in every PS4 box* that includes:

  • $10 Sony Entertainment Network wallet credit for PlayStation Store
  • 30-day free PlayStation Plus membership trial**
  • 30-day free Music Unlimited service trial**

PS4 Bonuses

Out of the box, you can immediately experience everything PlayStation Plus for PS4 has to offer and have access to millions and millions of songs through Music Unlimited. The $10 credit can be used towards anything in the store including new PS4 launch titles, such as Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, and Killzone Shadow Fall.

Look for the voucher when you open your PS4 box and let us know what you’re excited about playing, listening, or watching by using #PS4 on Twitter.

Thank you Sony! Love ya. <3

Thanks, Sony. I’m guessing the PS+ 30 days stacks, but I’m guessing the Music Unlimited does not. Although I’d love to be corrected. I think you should definitely make Music Unlimited stack.

If I don’t open my launch PS4 until Xmas, it’s not like these coupons will expire will they?

Now have Xbone try to compete with this LOL.. Looks like Xbox is officially done.. So glad I paid off my PS4 and Knack and Killzone and I got the one year PS Plus just have not put that in yet till I get my PS4 next Friday

Fantastic. Very generous.

I’m already a + member, but an extra 30 days for free is great. Music Unlimited, well, I don’t really care about that, but I will try it for the duration of the trial. The $10 voucher is very cool and much appreciated.

1 week from this very second I will be playing PS4. How exciting!!!!

That $10 credit will go nicely with all the credit I’m getting back from the spend $50 promo. Sweet!

My Plus is good until April 2016, but May sounds good too. Actually more like June and a half since I have another 30 day card from replacing my phat with a Super Slim, and the 7 day card from Killzone: Shadow Fall. lol

As for that Music Unlimited trial, thank you. I did a little digging into the service, and it seems like as far as non-electronic music goes (electronic is my preference), you’ve pretty much got every band I could ever want on there. But still, I’d like to try it out before subscribing.

And now I can. Score!

Thanks, Sony!

Will these come with PS4 consoles purchased after launch? Cause im getting mine towards christmas time, assuming they restock stores with PS4s at that time -__-

+ taehyunnie on November 8th, 2013 at 8:15 am said:

Shuhei lied said, no benefits for buying PS4 on launch other than having a PS4 on launch.

Well, guess we DO have a DAY ONE ps4 ;)

+ BUDDY-VA on November 8th, 2013 at 8:17 am said:

Sweet!!!!! So with the 10 dollar card, I’ll get Ghosts for free since I bought it for PS3! Luv it luv it lluuuuuuuuuuuuuuv it!!!!!!!

So excited for next Friday!


63

+ KazeEternal on November 8th, 2013 at 8:20 am said:

I assume those 30 days can be added to my existing PS+ subscription?

Can we expect some sort of early adopters program as well?


64

+ ORSZJOKE on November 8th, 2013 at 8:24 am said:

This is Awesome news :D However… just cause you give me 30 days of music unlimited doesn’t mean that your gonna some how make people fall in love with your over priced subscription fee for its service.


65

+ Enforcer_X on November 8th, 2013 at 8:31 am said:

Hopefully the PS+ stacks on existing customers.
Furthermore bonus $10 rocks!

Thank you, Sony! I really do appreciate the $10 dollar credit and 30 days PlayStation Plus! :)

BRING BACK THE FREEDOM OF PS3 YOU CORPORATE GREEDY JERKS!

+ iREVOLTER on November 8th, 2013 at 8:42 am said:

That 30 Days Free Trial does not stack to your current PS+ subscription and ofc it will require a credit card to be linked to account so you could redeem the code. But that 10$ Voucher bonus is good .

+ JKar275 on November 8th, 2013 at 8:44 am said:

@37: I completely agree with you. While I’m glad to see that we’re getting a $10 PS Store credit & 30-day subscription to PS Plus – I would much rather see Sony restore the PS4′s support for audio CDs, MP3, & DLNA rather than have a free 30-day trial to Music Unlimited.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE BOYCOTT OF MUSIC UNLIMITED UNTIL SONY RESTORES THE PS4′S SUPPORT FOR AUDIO CDs, MP3s, AND DLNA. LET’S SEND SONY A VERY CLEAR & STRONG MESSAGE THAT WE PS4 OWNERS ARE VERY ANGRY & UPSET OVER THE PS4′S LOSS OF SUPPORT FOR THOSE SAME MUSIC/MEDIA FUNCTIONS THAT THE PS3 HAS.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FREE 30-DAY TRIAL TO MUSIC UNLIMITED BECAUSE SONY HAS TAKEN AWAY OUR FREEDOM OF CHOICE IN THE WAY THAT WE CAN LISTEN TO MUSIC ON THE PS4.

THANK YOU, IN ADVANCE!!!

YEAH I AM SURE THAT THE FREE PSPLUS MEMBERSHIP WILL ONLY BE FOR THOSE THAT ARE NOT MEMBERS ALREADY.

BOYCOTT MUSIC UNLIMITED!!!

The UK better get something like this in the box considering we have to wait 2 weeks longer!!!

Great bonus for everyone and a great Starter Kit for gamers new to the PS Lifestyle! Thanks!

+ Indy-Pendent on November 8th, 2013 at 8:56 am said:

It seems that if the PS+ 30 day did not stack on current subscriptions they would have added a footnote specifically saying so, as they did for the music unlimited offer. So, hopefully this means it can be stacked on top of current subscriptions.

Just 7 more days to go

+ Teflon02 on November 8th, 2013 at 9:02 am said:

Can Someone at sony answer this please. How is Videos going to work on PS4, in the UI video’s I see, they don’t have a video Icon that I’m aware of. You can still store MP4, Dvix and WMV videos right? AND also how is the video store content going to work, I’d prefer to download all my episodes of Fairy Tail to my system and not stream em. Please tell me that’s not the only video option


79

+ Teflon02 on November 8th, 2013 at 9:06 am said:

@69 Lol the boycott is pointless now, Shuhei has already confirmed the next day that was a topic in the meeting after the negative reaction. Just keep the complaints coming and if you used MU then keep using it. It’ll definitely come back now, just make sure to keep the complaints rolling.

+ Darth_NODlike on November 8th, 2013 at 9:06 am said:

That is pretty awesome of you guys! Experience it all, right out of the box. Nice!

+ perrandy on November 8th, 2013 at 9:17 am said:

84

+ Elvick_ on November 8th, 2013 at 9:17 am said:

If I didn’t get to renew my Music Unlimited account for $3 for 3 more months, I’d be annoyed that this doesn’t stack onto existing members/previous subscribers.


85

+ HAIRYMAN-13 on November 8th, 2013 at 9:18 am said:

Thanks grandma Sony.


94

+ blackperro on November 8th, 2013 at 9:42 am said:

PS Plus vouchers usually stack, so if you have it already I assume it will simply extend what you’ve got! not sure how the music service will work for current subscribers though… please reply Eric or other blog staff!


95

+ knsense on November 8th, 2013 at 9:48 am said:

So only people from Canada and USA are going to get this?


96

+ JerrodDRagon on November 8th, 2013 at 9:49 am said:

Love You Sony, only you would give Us Free Cash to spend. I’m going to buy the Killzone Co-op Maps with this money.
I hope the 30 days of PS plus stack on top of my account but if not, I’ll pass them on to a friend


97

+ tusunami on November 8th, 2013 at 9:53 am said:

Now this is a great deal, this will spur more PS Plus membership. Because there gonna need it or no online gaming.

+ redknight4 on November 8th, 2013 at 10:06 am said:

Glad that everyone gets a $10 psn card with a ps4 that’s about the only surprise.

The 2 trial offers in the box i’m probably ineligible for. The ps+ trial due to me being a member and the music unlimited trial because i used the psn one that was available when it first launched and I was disappointed with the service due to the lack of music available..

would have liked to added an extra month to my ps+ for free though
