PlayStation Plus is free for a week from today - but not in Europe

Sony is offering gamers a week of free access to its PlayStation Plus service - but those in Europe wont be getting quite such a generous freebie as their US counterparts.

"Starting this Friday, February 17," Sony said, "you, your friends, your next door neighbor - everyone - will be able to access the online multiplayer modes in any PS4 game that you own without a PlayStation Plus subscription." Until February 23 at 11:59pm PT, the company is encouraging gamers to "hop on to PSN... no membership commitment is required during this period."

But those in Europe will have to wait a bit longer for their free playtime - and they wont get as much of it. The PlayStation Blog in Europe states that the free period there will begin on February 22 at 10am (although the timezone is unclear), and will run until 11:59pm on February 26.

Even so, while Euro-gamers might feel a tiny bit disappointed by that, its still nice to get something for nothing.

Earlier this week, Sony made another announcement affecting its gaming community. From August 15, PlayStation Now will be discontinued on the PS3, PS Vita, PS TV, and numerous Sony and Samsung TVs.
