You guys know PS Plus is not worth it. C'mon, why would anybody want to play these games...SMH! /s

Are you trolling? LBP2, JC2, Infamous 2, these are some of the best games in the past few years.
Emilio_Estevez  +   899d ago
/s = sarcasm, welcome to the internets Snookies.

The only way this isn't worth it to someone is if they have all of the games, which seems unlikely.
LOGICWINS  +   899d ago
Its offers a great value...assuming your interested in all these games. I played through Infamous 2 and Saints Row 2 last year. Both great games, but I don't give a crap about LBP 2. And I've had extensive time with JC2, cool concept, but the game is unpolished/repetitive as hell. The point is, Sony's BIGGEST fans, people who probably already own all these games are benefiting the least from these top tier games. Value is useless if ur given items that you don't want. Its like winning a lifetime supply of peanuts...but ur allergic to peanuts. Great value, but its useless.

I still don't see a reason to get PS Plus. What happened to cloud gaming? I would thrown my money at the screen if that was announced.

FunAndGun  +   899d ago

you don't sound like much of a gamer.

If we got 24 FREE games you would still complain.

You mentioned 4 games, what about the other 8? are those crap too? do you have them all? Are they not worth your time?

having an allergic reaction is not the same as acting like a stuck up brat about things that have been ADDED to a subscription.

what happened to cloud gaming?.....YOU believed in rumors.

edit...actually, why don't you just share your PSN ID. I can check out your trophy list to see how many games you actually play or are you just talkin out your booty.

dont waste time reasoning with ''Logicwins'' he claims to have a ps3, but he probably doesnt. Like you said, he is likely talking out of his ass.

And you are right about that part of him not being a gamer-- Who says 12 games (that Sony is basically giving away) 'useless'?

@Funandgun- Give some random kid on N4G my PSN ID, just to prove to him that I have a PS3....HAHAHAHAHAHA! Your opinion ain't that important to me buddy. N4G never ceases to amaze. I'm not interested in playing certain PS3 games because I've either already played them(Infamous 2, Saints Row 2) or the genre isn't for me(LBP2)...and the first thing that pops up in your brain is "WOW...that MUST mean he doesn't own a PS3!"

LMAO...thats some pretty good deductive reasoning you have there /s

Applying your logic, anyone who isn't interested in PS Plus doesn't own a PS3...you realize that right?

"Its offers a great value...assuming your interested in all these games."


Playstation plus is a yearly subscription that works out to $4.17 a month if you pay for the entire year.

I have some of the games on the list already. For me I'm interested in Little Big Planet 2, Warhammer 40,000, Saints Row 2, and Ratchet and Clank.

I'm not interested in Virtua Fighter (don't care for fighting games), inFAMOUS 2 (own it), Just Cause 2 (own it), Lara Croft (own it), Hard Corp: Uprising (never heard of it), Choplifter HD (never heard of it), Zombie Apocalyspse (never heard of it), and Sideway NT (never heard of it).

It's possible that the games I've never heard of could be fun. Since they're included why wouldn't someone who is subscribed try them out?

If I add up the cost of the games that I'm interested in the yearly subscription is worth it just from this one update.

I find it really difficult to believe that someone can't find $4.17 worth of value in this single update to justify the cost for this month. I think for most people this single update contains enough content to justify the yearly subscription price.

Sony you've convinced me. I'm signing up for playstation plus today.
dead_eye  +   899d ago
This offer isn't for hardcore gamers. This is for the casual crowd.

You buy the console and plus and then BAM you have a bunch of games to play without spending anymore money.

Anyone that finds a fault with this should have themselves put down or at least neutered so as not to breed.
JoySticksFTW  +   898d ago
Loving Plus right now.
I own Infamous 2 and LBP, but you telling me I get to download VF, Tomb Raider, and Saint Row??

Man, I am sooo glad I have a new 500gb hdd coming today :D

Heck, I almost bought JC2 last week because it was a steal. But now I get to play it for free!

This makes up for the torture that was the Wonderbook showing. lol

Can't wait to see what else will be revealed the next couple of days. Awwww yeah
solidjun5  +   898d ago
i love plus. it's so worth it. Free games even if I played some of the games, there are other games I would like to try and i get to get for free.

Yea...he is.

For someone called logic wins your logic sure went out the window with that comment. Yes I understand what you mean about PS Plus. I own all the good games in my eyes on that list and I haven't had a PS Plus sub in nearly a year but you can't argue that that isn't great value.

I mean I never had any interest in Warhammer, R&C all 4 one,LBP2 or VF5 and I also never played any of those PSN titles either but come on for 15 euros you get to try them out for 3 months and the way the post sounds those games are just for starters. It sounds like Sony will be offering other full retail games each month when the plus update comes so why all the hate.

This is a good thing for gaming. Something like this comes with many perks. Like introducing new people to franchises they over looked due to other games releasing along side them, bringing people to the online parts of those games that are most likely dead by now and it increase the chances of getting sequels to those games due to more people liking them.
badz149  +   898d ago
I expected nothing less from LOGICWINS
Sony give away free games to all PS+ members, and he still find a way to spin it as negative and bash it! well done TROLL!

I guess $60 for online play, xgame chat, FB, Twitter, Netflix, Hulu etc is too hard to pass for him even over free games! PATHETIC!
MrBeatdown  +   898d ago

"Great value, but its useless."

I guess that's true... if you either have just about every game out there, or just hate everything.

I've got 130 or so PS3 games. Around 40 or so PSN games, including ones I've gotten from PS+. And even I can find something I like here. For me, it's Warhammer and Zombie Apocalypse.

You know how much the average game goes for, don't you? Even if you buy games as dirt cheap as they get at $10-$15 like I do, it only takes three or four retail games you end up liking to get your value's worth for an entire year.

I'm guessing most people aren't as frugal as I am, so if you buy games for around $20 or $30, and you find just two or three games that you end up liking, you've gotten your money's worth.

There's twelve games here. If the US PS+ sees at least three games a month replaced like the EU version, that's an additional 36 games over the course of the year. Factor in discounts and all the other goodies, and if you can't find $50 worth of value over the course of a year, you're either in the wrong hobby, or you're buying way too many games.

Man, LogicWins ALWAYS says the stupidest stuff. I wonder if N4G keeps track of how many dislikes a persons comments have accumulated entirely. He would have the most amount of dislikes out of every member here. The man has no logic, yet is so delusional, that he assumes everyone else is void of said Logic simply because no one ever agrees with him. Ever. such delusion. That "peanut allergy" analogy was one of the dumbest, non-logical attempts at a correlation I've ever read on N4G (and there's plenty of stupidity already found here). SMH...

As of me writing this, he has only TWO comments on this articles, yet has 48 dislikes and ZERO likes. It's like that on every article he comments on. People enjoy hearing his numb-nut rants just about as much as they like hearing from that Pratcher game analysis guy.

Just deny him bubbles, folks.

i guess you can be cynical about it in a way because they kinda deeply discounted most of this stuff the week before. i almost bought just cause 2 and infamous 2 last week with their ultimate deals but then i never got to it now this makes me happy :P feel sorry for people that had plus and paid for some of these titles last week. anyways loving my plus stuff and curious there is no vita integration stuff out yet.

Now would be the time to go buy a 500GB hard drive to put in your PS3.

Overall this is an insane deal PS+ has gotten to the point that their is no reason anyone should not own it.

Tell me about it. I just bought PS+ before the EU store updates with this months PS+ content to take advantage of last months free PS Plus games and after Downloading the original Max Payne my hard drives full lol. If a PS2 game is 4.5 GBs then how much will some of these blu ray games be.
Rampaged Death  +   899d ago
I have no interest in these games because I've already played them but the talk last night got me interested in subscribing. Shame the stream rumour wasn't true.
NBT91  +   899d ago
Thats my concern too, if you have PS+ there is a high probability you regularly play PS3, in which case you already own or played through these games.

Still, all of these games for free? No complaints, if you have played them then sure you dont gain anything but you certainly dont loose anything either so there really is no argument.
PirateThom  +   898d ago
Of the 10 games coming to the EU this month, I only own 3 of them and I regularly play PS3 and these sort of, shall we say, mid-reviewed games like Warhammer 40k Space Marine and Motorstorm Apocalypse are games I would like to see on the service. The AAA games, like the ones I already own, I would still buy.

I still think PS+ will benefit some more than others and, at least, this way it's easier to play ahead for the content.

The question isn't really what they are giving away now...it's whether or not this will continue? There are so many games that I pass on because of conflicts with other games. This deal is perfect for that. Warhammer and VF 5 won't be bad for free.

I do agree with some of the sentiment on the comment section on the blog that legacy PS+ members got shafted last week with the "Ultimate" deals. Kind of a screw job from their perspective.
SillyBastid  +   899d ago
yea that was kind of a "lets rip off as many current subscribers as we can before we give them this free"

I bought JC2 and almost got infamous2 as well, good thing I decided to be a cheap bastard.

Still I cant really complain, it was an amazing deal for 18 bucks too.

To be honest, how do people have time to fucking play all these, I'm jealous. I have a lot of money, but I just can't find time because of college studies and responsibilities.

People are worried about their wallets getting hurt, and I'm here trying to find time to play all the blockbuster titles. That is the only reason I won't be participating in this unfortunately. Had I still been in Highschool, then hell yeah I'd get PSPlus for this! :D

The Great Melon  +   898d ago
You and I are both in the same boat. I am through and through gamer, but college and soon to be graduate school prevents me from playing my huge back catalogue. I miss RPGs, but I never have enough time to finish one in reasonable amount of time anymore. I find myself playing a lot of the shorter games out there now.

Hopefully the summer will be productive for me in my gaming needs...

i can only free 16 gigs off my 120. How hard is it to upgrade the hdd? Is there something cheap and easy i can plug into the ps3 for more space. I wish it was as easy as the 360s hard drive to remove.
FunAndGun  +   899d ago
it is extremely easy.

just look up a youtube video. You have to remove one clip and one screw.

You should make a copy of your existing HD onto an external HD. Then upgrade your HD and restore the information onto the new drive.

There are TONS of how to's and step by steps on the net. The HD upgrade is better on the PS3 because you can use almost any 2.5" HD and upgrade it as large as you can afford.

it is very easy, don't be discouraged!

Come on guys, its not that special. 3/4 of the games people have already played or are just not worth playing. I mean, who cares about Just Cause 2; Saint Row 2; Warhammer 40k; Oddworld etc all these sound like shovel ware, that I cant be bothered playing right now. I would have subscribed if games like God of War collection; dark souls; ratchet and clank trilogy; for example were on the menu.
refocusedman  +   898d ago
You just cant make everyone happy. If you subscribe for a year your not only getting those games. Theirs a very good chance that at some point within the year, your gonna see something that peaks your interest. These games are just to entice new subscribers. I would also have to disagree with you, those games are not shovelware.
