As the opening day of E3 approaches (June 15), rumors continue to swirl about new releases and theatrical events. Today, the big rumor is that Sony will be unveiling a premium PlayStation Network service at the entertainment expo in Los Angeles next month.

According to the tech blog VG247, a "highly-placed source" has informed them that Sony will make the big announcement at the company's June 15th keynote event. With an estimated cost of less than £50 ($74), subscribers will reportedly be eligible to receive one free PSN title per month, from a pool of two to four per month. The premium PSN service should also include access to the music streaming application Spotify.

We should also be seeing some more information and demos involving the PlayStation Move controller, previously announced in March at GDC 2010 with a release planned for this fall.

So, do you believe the rumor, or do you think it's just a hoax and hype leading up to a big tech conference? Either way, do you just wish this news to be true?
