1
Not only do PlayStation Plus subscribers get pole position when it comes to some demos and beta tests, they also get anticipated updates before everyone else.

According to the PlayStation Blog, a big change for PixelJunk Racers is on its way for most, but is already available for PlayStation Plus users. The PixelJunk Racers "2nd Lap" update is set to completely overhaul the difficulty of the original PixelJunk title as well as add a new global scoreboard and trophies.

Owners of PixelJunk Racers will receive the update for free on August 24; however, PlayStation Plus subscribers can get the upgraded version now. Additionally, for newcomers, the updated PixelJunk Racers will be made available for $6.99 on August 24 or $5.24 (25% off) right now for Plus subscribers.

    "Not only do PlayStation Plus subscribers get pole position when it comes to some demos and beta tests"
    They artificially make that pole position, they release the demo only for plus members the same day as in the rest of the platforms, and then they delay the release date for the rest. An example is the mafia 2 demo.
    They said this Plus thing wasn't going to affect the customers that doesn't pay, but it is affecting.
