Game News PlayStation Plus: a spot full of references to PS5 games broadcast by Sony for the launch in France
Unveiled last March, today is the big day for Sony since the Japanese brand inaugurates the launch of its new PlayStation Plus formula in France and, more broadly, in European countries. On this occasion, PlayStation broadcast an advertising spot full of references to the brand’s catalog to highlight its three new subscriptions!
- The Essential, Extra and Premium formulas are available!
- The Game Pass with PlayStation sauce advertises
This penultimate week of June, subscribers to the PlayStation Plus service have been eagerly awaiting it. Since the interview granted by the CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, the players were able to scrutinize the different offers in order to make their choice on the formula that would suit them best! Three months later, the new features of the service are accessible and the list of available games has enough to convince more than one. Especially since Sony has shown itself more generous than expected !
A much richer catalog therefore, but also new options for those who fall for the most expensive formula, namely the PlayStation Plus Premium formula, and who directly target games from the catalog of the first PlayStation consoles. We understand that for the European market, Sony has gone all out: however, nothing beats a good old-fashioned advertisement to spread the good news. It is also done, as evidenced by the promotional video broadcast by PlayStation at the top of the article!
The Game Pass with PlayStation sauce advertises
Like the promotion made by Sony last September, on the occasion of the PlayStation Showcase in honor of the PS5 and its catalog, where the Japanese firm praised its slogan ” Play has no limits ” with a whole bunch of references, the advertising campaign around the PlayStation Plus uses the same codes. Moreover, the narrator quickly winks at the previous spot by asking the players if they have already pushed their limits, and does not hesitate to pay for his coffee… with a gold coin snatched from Nathan Drake, but the allusions do not stop there.

And you, have you noticed any other references? And for which formula will you succumb?
