Have you tried PlaysStation Plus before? If not this might be a great opportunity to do so as we’ve tied up with Sony Hong Kong to offer free subscriptions to PSN Plus.

So what do you get with PSN Plus? In case you don’t already know, PSN Plus is Sony’s premium service for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. That’s one unified account and one price to pay to connect all your Sony consoles to PSN Plus.

At its most basic, a PSN Plus subscription is required if you want to engage in some multiplayer co-operative gameplay with friends or family who also own a Sony console.

However, there’s really a lot more to PSN Plus than just co-op -- every month, Sony offers a number of free games for each console.

These free games are not just limited to classic games, but also to some current games as well and are yours to play as long as your PSN Plus membership is active.

For the month of January, Sony is offering InFamous First Light, which is a standalone downloadable content for the acclaimed InFamous: Second Son and The Swapper, an award-winning narrative-driven puzzle game, for PlayStation 4.

On the PS3, the free games for January are Resident Evil: Revelations and The Swapper. Originally appearing on portable consoles, the high-definition, remastered edition of Resident Evil: Revelations is the game in the long-running series that many say is one of the best.

On PS Vita, you get The Swapper and Titan Attacks! an arcade-style shooter which should appeal to gamers who like bullet-hell style games.

Apart from free games, PSN Plus also offers seasonal sales and monthly discounts on games.

For hardcore gamers, there are a few more features that makes a PSN Plus subscription more attractive.

For one thing, PSN Plus allows gamers to upload their game saves and trophies online so you never lose your game saves and trophies even if you upgrade the hard disk on the console.

More importantly, with PSN Plus you can set your console to automatically download and install firmware updates for the console as well as game patches.
