Sony Releases Year-End Savings Total for PlayStation Plus Service

Good news for the guy (or gal) who bought every single item available over the PlayStation Network in 2011: You saved $1,200. Sony just released a list of everything the service offered this year and the results are pretty impressive.

Overall, Sony offered 17 free games to Plus members. That’s full retail releases like Tomb Raider: Underworld, mind you. The service offered four game betas (Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3 and SOCOM 4), six early access demos, 43 full-game trials and discounts on 132 PS3 games. That’s not even counting the elevated sales discounts, free PlayStation One Classics titles and themes. The free PS3 games and add-ons amounted to $200 in savings overall, according to Sony reps.

It kind of makes me wonder what I’m paying Microsoft $60 a year for.
