There is a rumour on the internet saying xbox live is better.

Thanks to PSN plus i already have 15+ games for free.

You don't have any free games. You have 15 rented games as long as keep paying for Plus.

Edit: lol at the disagrees. How am I wrong? Butt hurt fanboys.

@Suicidal Tendencies...
... which is still a better deal than what Microsoft are offering with their 'Gold'.

Don't get me wrong. I've got Gold, and I'm OK with it, but I get a bit jealous when I look at all the stuff you get when you become a Plus-member.
Ducky  +   1096d ago
^ It is better, but that still doesn't make those games "free" when they're part of a subscription.
OllieBoy  +   1096d ago
I love the "rental" argument. As someone who's subscribed through 2014, I don't really care if I'm just "renting" them.

And once I 100% a game, I rarely ever go back it. PS+ is the best thing I've been been subscribed to and it's a helluva lot more value than what MS charges $60 a month for.
the worst  +   1096d ago
your renting to play online with your friends for $60 a year
@SuicidalTendencies your butt hole hurts.
what does your money get you???

You can tell the fanboys just by their responses. No where in my original comment did I say anything about Xbox Live Gold. I was just pointing out to that poster that he's not really getting games for free. It's just like renting games from Gamefly. I can keep them as long as I want but at some point I have to send them back. If you get rid of Plus your games go bye bye. I also believe XBL is a rip off so your comments about it don't bother me.
jwk94  +   1096d ago
Wow. Why all the disagrees? You ARE renting these games regardless of how long you have your subscription. Once your sub runs out they're gone until you resub, it's the same way with XBL. Both services provide rentals. PS+ is personally the better value because in addition to the rentals, it lets me have betas and discounts.
DigitalRaptor  +   1096d ago
Does it really matter if "they're not really free"? If you wanted to physically rent all these games that are offered in a year, it would cost you a lot by itself. If you wanted to buy the games that are on offer, it would cost you more.

Some of the games are actually free because you download the game's digital license and it stays in your download list AFTER your subscription has run out. Plants Vs. Zombies is one example of this.

PS+ offers tremendous value for a discount and rental service. It gives you an opportunity to experience games you might have thought weren't worth buying or you didn't know existed, but are still really great games. There are some beautifully unexpected things you receive from being a PS+ member.

I hope these games are applied to the EU PS+. I've held out on these games for a discount, and this would be perfect.

15 + games that you don't really own. But yes, at least it's something for your $60 a year.

@FatOldMan and SuicidalTendencies
This "rental" argument is bullshit. I finished FULL games like Darksiders, Little Big Planet 2, Just Cause 2, Infamous and many others thanks to PSN+, so it doesn't really matter. Why would you stop paying for this service if it's so good, you have tons of discounts and tons of free games each month?

xbox live gives me features that I don't even care about, but I am forced to pay or else I won't be able to play online.
Ducky  +   1096d ago
^ It isn't an argument. It's a fact.

Yes, PS+ is a great subscription service. I have it, and I'd encourage others to get it too.
That still doesn't mean that you can call those games free.

You paid the subscription, and got access to those games for the duration of the subscription. That's all SuicidalTendencies was correcting you on. We're not bashing PS+, we're just being obsessively pedantic about what the word 'free' means. =)

You are wrong cause you wrote 'rent' when the correct terminology is 'lease'
cruxito  +   1096d ago
to SuicidalTendencies: rented or not, we can play those games for free, unlike the xbox that charges to play online and dont give you anythig back ever.

PLaystation Plus is great waaaay better than xbox live,
RyuStrife  +   1096d ago
For those thinking PSN+ is $60/year, it's not. It's $50. Just to clear that out. It's actually directed at j4re, but some people may have misunderstood that as well.

Being a subscriber, you do get free things though, such as avatars, themes, certain DLCs that are permanent.
Bowzabub  +   1096d ago
@suicidaltendencies.. He'll of a lot better than renting your own ISP (Twice). XD. Think about that. And even if you really want to compare it to Gamefly, which is retarded, you're getting it for way cheaper. So let's just call it discounts of astronomical proportions.

I was planning on waiting until all five episodes had been released before I made a purchase, but if they're just going to give them to me...
lodossrage  +   1096d ago
If you want to look at it that way, then you only rent the "right" to play online as long as you pay for Live.

Plus is no different than Netflix
SuicidalTendencies  +   1096d ago
You're right about Live. That's why when my subscription runs out in August I'm not renewing it, but that doesn't change the fact that the poster isn't getting free games. They are just rented, like Netflix, as long as he keeps paying for his Plus.
PockyKing  +   1096d ago
Yea and with Xbox Live you can't even use things you fucking pay for. I pay for Netflix and can't use it on Xbox 360 cause I don't have Gold, stupidest thing.
god_o_war  +   1095d ago
lol so im renting full games at 50cents each a year? Thats a bloody rip off mate!!!

What the hell, I already paid for the season pass. I know it's good for people who haven't bought it yet but I think I got robbed a bit.
snowman2149  +   1096d ago
Yeah lucky for all 3 of you who still havent played them, but its a cool deal, I guess.
But its a pain the ass though, what if you get the 3rd episode then your + subscription expires, losing access to the first 2 games, thus losing access to the 3rd that you just bought...
Ducky  +   1096d ago
Why would you let your subscription expire? =p

soliduck  +   1096d ago
I love plus and this is awesome, but I do wish they would tell me whats coming up a month in advance. Since im a member and already bought these. But its cool.
i_da_pappy  +   1096d ago
PS+ is certainly picking up steam. I've been a subscriber since day 1 and love it! I would love to see them put their movie section in there somehow.
jdktech2010  +   1096d ago
Haven't played these yet so I'm excited...now I just want an all stars beta Sony

As much as i love the walking dead i'd rather have a full retail game release for the instant game collection.

Too bad I already have it :(
RoXante  +   1096d ago
great. and i was thinkin of buyin this game.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1096d ago
God dang it! I already bought them... -_-

I feel like sometimes paying for Plus is a waste of money. This month will be one of those months.
JAM_brz  +   1096d ago
It´ll happen sometimes. Sometimes you already have the games, and sometimes not.

For me who just have a few titles, its something worthwhile.

This is why i NEVER buy games on psn anymore. I used to spend at least 10 a week but then wound up getting gams i owned on ps plus so i just wait now. I wouldve bought these for sure.
GhettoBlasStarr  +   1087d ago
WOW!!! Just finished the Walking Dead Ep.1 and was very surprised on how great a game it was.
It's something that deserves alot more attention than what it's getting.
If you have PS+ do yourself a favor and play it!!
