New Content for PlayStation Plus Members Includes Borderlands Trial

There's a boat-load of new content for PlayStation Plus subscribers in January and February.  One of the new items is a full game trial of Borderlands, still one of the best co-op games around.  There are a ton of other deals and sales.  If you take advantage of all the savings it looks as if the Plus membership would almost pay for itself in just a few months.  If you sign up by Groundhog's Day (February 2nd, for those of you not dependent on archaic seasonal predictions) you can get 15 months for the price of 12. What are you waiting for?  As usual, non-paying PlayStation Network users will get nothing and like it.
