- Discounts on PS hardware and accessories, (controllers, and headsets)
- Monthly PS+ contests with prizes
- PS+ knowledgebase (Forum for PS+ members)
- Discounts on Sony products (TV's, cameras, smartphones)
- Discounts on lifestyle products (newspapersubscriptions, movietickets, fast food, travel fare.
- PS+ gaming tournaments with prizes.
- Free movies every month.
- Discounts on popular streamingservices (Netflix, HBO Nordic, Spotify)

Discounts on hardware sounds highly interesting to me!

I'd take a Netflix discount, though I wonder if they'd restrict you to only watching it on Sony devices to be eligible.

Movies? na I'd rather have games, Unless it is additional to games then yeah, whatever :)

What about teaming up with Netflix so PS+ subs get 24 hours a month free ?

I called it months ago that sony should offer free movies with PS+ just to make ppl enter their video store.

A lot of those sound nice, but some are not particularly feasible outside of the biggest markets (or just the US). Would be hard to swing those discounts through every market. Movies would probably have to be Sony Pictures for easy distribution because of rights.

This. Lol!

I like the discounts on Sony everything rather than just games. This would be a great idea and would actually expand PS+ as more than just a gaming subscription service.

Do you have a credit card by chance or even a store card?

I'd rather they just tried to improve the roster of games they give out each month than try and implement more features people don't particularly want.

I filled this in about an hour ago. I was pretty positive for most of the ideas except

- Monthly PS+ contests with prizes
- PS+ knowledgebase (Forum for PS+ members)
- Discounts on lifestyle products (newspapersubscriptions, movietickets, fast food, travel fare

which don't really appeal to me.

I can honestly say I want none of that and want the money put towards the monthly games, rather than stripping the budget of that further.

At this point I'd rather have them offer different tiers of PS+. Specially if they're going to include movies equivalent to the games they have been giving lately.

That way I could have the one that includes online gaming only and everyone else can enjoy the other offerings I have been disliking for the last months. Let the people who enjoys that subsidize the service if they're so happy with it.

Microsoft does hardware discounts if you got XBL via the Xbox Storefront directly, picked up a Chatpad like that earlier this year. Sony might be looking at something similar.

- Free movies every month.

But they were supposed to have done this already:

Additionally, EPIX will be offering a new movie every week that PlayStation Plus members can stream for free, even if they arenít a subscriber. Not bad, eh?

They won't do that, because most people will go for the online gaming only sub.

Some of those are interesting. The free movies won't work since I don't have the store. Also the only streaming services available for me is Netflix which I don't use.

Yup, no way they strip down the current offers. If anything, they will offer a more expensive one with additional features.

I would be pretty shocked if a PS+ membership gave you a discount on PlaystationVR or even a PS4 console. I just don't see them going that far. Maybe a discount on controllers, but no way VR.

Stranger things could happen though

EDIT: Oops, I think I misread your comment ;)
