You look like the kinda person who digs free stuff. You have a torso and a head on top of it — the last person I knew who loved free stuff had those, too.

Well, Sony can tell that you like not paying for things, so after paying them $400 for a PlayStation 4, it’s going to give you a couple of goodies for no additional cost. The company announced that its next-gen console comes with a voucher that you can exchange for a few digital items:

  • $10 in PlayStation Store credit
  • 30-day free PlayStation Plus trial
  • 30-day free Music Unlimited trial

Out of the box, you can immediately experience everything PlayStation Plus for PS4 has to offer and have access to millions and millions of songs through Music Unlimited,” Sony Network Entertainment vice president Eric Lempel wrote in a blog post. “The $10 credit can be used toward anything in the store, including new PS4 launch titles, such as Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, and Killzone Shadow Fall.”

Sony’s PlayStation Store is home of all of its digital content. That includes full retail games, indie titles, and movies. PlayStation Plus is the company’s premium online service. It enables multiplayer gaming on PS4 and also gives gamers access to free games as part of its Instant Game Collection feature. At the launch of the next console, PS Plus members can download the side-scrolling shooter Resogun at no extra charge.
