PlayStation Store hits India, Offers Value for Money, Game Downloads & Subscription

Users in India can now access the PlayStation Store in India, and also subscribe to PlayStation Plus service. If you're hooked on to the PS3, PSP, or PSP Go, you'll have an Xbox Live compatriot, and apart from being able to play online with other PSN members, you'll also be able to log on from anywhere. Besides, you'll also be able to download content.

Perhaps the most exciting part of the deal is the rather unbelievable price of down-loading full games from the PlayStation Store for as little as ~225! You can even buy a PSP game for < 170. That's ten games for the price of one and a rather large incentive to opt for a PS3. If you were wondering about rights and terms such as DRM, note that it can be used on up to five other activated consoles.

The other highlight is the annual subscription package for PlayStation Plus, a service which will give subscribers access to free games and demos, as well as beta trials and other content, for ~2,850. Sony claims subscribers will get almost <14,000 worth of free content in the one year period. For those just wanting to try the service out, there is a 90-day PlayStation Plus subscription package that retails for ~885, which will apparently offer almost ~6,500 worth of free content.
