Sony is in the process of re-evaluating how it operates PlayStation Plus, according to a survey emailed to some PlayStation users.

The survey asks participants to detail their perfect PS Plus package, including cost and how the subscription is paid (monthly, annually etc) and what perks are included in the subscription. It's the latter which seems most radical, with the survey suggesting full PS3 games (digital versions of retail Blu-ray titles) and Call of Duty Elite membership possibilities.

On the survey, a Sony spokesperson told IGN: "We have nothing specific to announce at this time, but PlayStation Plus continues to delight gamers with free games, huge discounts and exclusive gaming features that can't be found on other platforms." Analysis

PS Plus already offers good value for money, but the promise of retail games delivered digitally for free could be enough to convince many PS3 gamers to jump onboard with PS Plus. 10 retail quality games per year, even if they are more than one year old, appears well worth the $50-$60 a year subscription price.

It's not what we don't get, it's balancing the content and providing more/less minis, full games, PS1 classics etc.

That said, I'm very happy with what we get for the price at the moment. Full games may be older titles, but they're often classics and getting a PS2 game (Max Payne) yesterday is a good sign too.

The question then is: What could they add thats worth it? PSN users already get all their media streaming and multiplayer for free and PSN+ subs are paying for games. Whats left? Films? Music?

I can't imagine that you would need to pay more money for the same service. There's likely to be a pricier account with more content and content reduced for the free account users.

As a happy PS+ member I'll be following this pretty closely. I get very good value for my £40 with full games like NFS:Shift 2 as well as brilliant download titles such as Stacking and Shank 2. If I have to pay more to get a similar service I'll be disappointed, obviously, but if the content is improved further I'll be very happy. Here's hoping it's the latter!
