Nice idea to expand Ps+ value. Hope they'll keep with the deals in the future and that they'll expand it to the rest of the world.
Edit: "Good" section = coupon/voucher section

I'm italian and I have a PSN account just for plus. the italian store is very pricey compared to the US store and they usually don't have deals and releases on the proper time. Also, in general, every italian content sucks nowadays.

Surprised this thread isn't getting more attention. Could be a huge deal if it comes elsewhere.

I hope this stays in Italy. I don't really want my sub money going towards random shit I would likely never use. They can say it's in addition, but it all needs to be paid for out of the pot. Keep it to games Sony, please.

But Italians do pay the same price for their PS+ subscription, don't they? If the price remains the same, what's wrong with more extras?

I can see your concern though. You don't want to feel like the money you're paying goes partially towards non-gaming goodies/discounts that you have potentially no interest in. Personally, I wouldn't mind. As far as PS+ games go, PS+ is already easily overdelivering in value imo. They don't really need to add even more value, but yeah I wouldn't mind.

I actually don't see the point of this offer.
And a discount for a flight doesn't sound very attractive to me as gamer... ^^"

Sony, you need to do better!

Yep. It's a gaming subscription, they want us to have some addition, give us more free games/content then.

My subscription can't possibly be this plus.

Discounts on retail pricing on Sony gear would have to get quite high for me before it ended up being cheaper than buying from third party sales, overseas etc.
