With PlayStation Plus headed to PS Vita later this month there’s never been a better time to be a subscriber. If you aren’t a Plus member yet then you’ll be happy to know that Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is currently offering a free 30-day PlayStation Plus trial to anyone who enters its latest Facebook competition.
You can find the competition over here, with the lucky winners earning themselves a year’s subscription to PlayStation Plus. If you enter the competition and ‘Like’ the PlayStation Competitions Facebook page you will then be emailed a code for a 30-day trial for Plus (you’ll have to wait a few days to receive the email).
You’ll need to have set a valid payment method on your PlayStation Network account to start the trial and remember to turn Automatic Renewal off so you don’t get charged for a 90-day Plus subscription once the 30-day free trial is up. To turn off Automatic Renewal follow these steps:
- Access ‘Account Management’ under the PlayStation Network section of your PS3’s XMB
- Select ‘Transaction Management’
- Select ‘Services List’
- Select ‘PlayStation Plus’
- Select your 30-day free trial
- Turn off Automatic Renewal
If you live in South Africa simply select United Kingdom as your region when you’re entering the competition as the code you are emailed will work on your South African PSN account.
