PS Plus members to get free access to DC Universe Online beta

PlayStation Plus subscribers will soon be receiving free invites to DC Universe Online's beta, according to a release from Sony over on its PlayStation Blog. The release also details a number of upcoming PS Plus promotions.

Other new offers for PS Plus members include free downloads of Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse and Crash Team Racing, as well as discounts on a handful of games including various Neo Geo titles when they hit PSN's NEOGEO Station on December 21st.

We recently spent some time in DC Universe Online and were impressed. The full game has been pushed back to early 2011 launch, so free access to its beta over the holidays is a nice move on Sony's part, but is it enough of an incentive to sway non-PS Plus members into upgrading their accounts?

    It's a scam, i signed up for this beta at the web site in sept. Then i found out you have to pre order it and show them a pic of the receipt to get the beta key. Now you have to sign up to PS plus, what happened to first come first served? Oh i know what happened to it, i called 1 800 345 7669 playstation to find out more info on this not all PS plus members will be getting this beta. She told me for example, killzone 3 beta was for US residents only and you had to be the first 5000 plus customers to download the zllzone 3 theme to be legible for the killzone 3 beta. It's gonna be something like that she said, what bullshit man!

    Is it really "free access" when you pay for the service? Hmmm... either way it's smart, they get to iron out pre-release issueswhile enticing subscribers. Knowing that they're fielding complaints by snarky geeks who are financially invested towards their "free" experience makes me more hopeful for this game's quality.
