The new service that rewards you DLC and new themes for your PS3 when you purchase a bundle of games called PSN PLAY, is now up for pre-order. I honestly don’t fully understand the service…or even if it’s a service at all. The way it is explained seems like it should just be a bonus for gamers who buy a lot of stuff, not some pre-ordered service.
The way it is described on the PlayStation Blog doesn’t help my confusion:
PLAY is a brand-new annual program, where we’re bringing you four of the season’s hottest PlayStation Network action titles. With every purchase of a PLAY title in the PlayStation Store throughout the duration of the program, you’ll receive a separate piece of DLC for each game, plus a new theme with every pre-order. If these incentives aren’t enough, if you’re 18 years or older and purchase all four PLAY titles in the PlayStation Store, you’ll get a voucher code for PAYDAY: The Heist as a bonus gift. And, PlayStation Plus subscribers will get an automatic 20% off every purchase.
I guess, either way, whether you understand what exactly this is or not, you can pre-order it today! The four titles featured are: Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition (which releases on Aug. 23rd, and will only be available for pre-order through Aug. 18th), The Baconing (Aug. 29th), Bloodrayne: Betrayal (Sept. 5th) and Renegade Ops (Sept. 12). So make sure you act fast!
