i want to see what games are gonna be part of the Instant Game Collection.

darthv721364d ago (Edited 1364d ago )

i am NOT a PS+ member but would it be safe to assume that in order to validate any free offer games you would need to be connected to the internet?

OR, is it simply based on the duration of the membership? Where by you sign up and download some stuff and then sony just starts counting down the days whether or not you are online until the expiration.

I can only use live as an example but in some cases you download a game to your system via your gamertag and can play online and offline. If you download that same game through your gamertag to another unit, you have to be online to validate the download and play otherwise the game becomes like a demo or not playable at all.

Its a way of game sharing and I do that quite a bit. I have one system i make all my purchases through and then I have another that i use the same gamertag on to redownload them and play on. this is because i get games that I want others in the house to play as well. so they can play the full game in their profile (offline) on the system that originally purchased them and I can play the full games on my profile on another system (online).

So in relation to plus, your ps3 is pretty much online all the time so does plus validate every free offer as long as you are a member or can you play those games offline simply because your system knows you are a member and knows how long you have until your membership expires?

sorry for the long question(s). Being serious.

I had plus but then went two months without internet. All my games from instant game collection worked duing that time. Just check the "information" tab of each game to see its expiration date.

KrebStar1364d ago

Yeah, you can definitely play all of your PS+ games without being online.

ChronoJoe1364d ago

You can play the games offline, the license duration gets associated with the content once it's been downloaded, then it counts down to expiration date regardless of whether you're on, or offline.

darthv721364d ago (Edited 1364d ago )

i figured it would be something like that but just needed a solid answer.

Cmo891363d ago

I have 2 ps3s in my house and 4 roommates. We do this all the time except you can play online signed in as another account. Not sure if the games work offline tho. But under all of the digital purchases it says you can put it on up to 2 systems.

Would be extremely surprising if they had games like Gravity Rush, LittleBigPlanet or Uncharted. These are the best games on the system at the moment.

I'm expecting Little Deviants to be free though. Maybe even Escape Plan.

GribbleGrunger1364d ago (Edited 1364d ago )

yes, they're unlikely to give what people consider AAA titles away, although they may throw one in considering it's the release and near Christmas (could be LBPVita). My bet is on Little deviants, Escape Plan (as you say), PSP classics, PS1 classics and PSMobile... perhaps a few minis too. People can't expect the Vita to have 12 top tier games from the start. But what's the betting some will?

Sithlord-Gamble1363d ago

Im willing to bet that itll be games that early adopters already own like Lil Deviants, Escape Plan, Super Star Dust, Wipeout ... etc.
So, while im excited about PS+ for Vita, i cant help but feel like im going to be screwed for a little while as i am one of those people.

Xof1363d ago

I'd rather see discounts than free games. With the PS3, too. That's the biggest reason I'm not continuing my subscription.

That said, I'm hoping to see Blazblue for free so I can try it out. I've got the PS3 version... and the 3DS version, so I'm not sure if I should splurge on it or not.

Snookies121363d ago

It's essentially the same as the PS3 version. The question is do you want it on the go? If so, then get it lol. It definitely looks amazing on the Vita screen, plus you can play your own music and it'll automatically detect that and cut off the game music at any time. Which is awesome, although the music in-game is amazing anyway.

Hopefully something like Escape Plan.

yoshiroaka1364d ago (Edited 1364d ago )

Yea that seems likely to be the first to go free and rope you in to buy some dlc after, cause its an old game that shows off a lot of the vitas features.

Wipeout seems like a good one for them as well.

As for a big/full title to go free they may give Unit 13.

Im just waiting to see anything on LBP vita like a discount or whatever and then regardless im going to buy it after plus drops.

zgoldenlionz1363d ago

I think your pretty spot on I'd bet that blob game that was 50% for the Halloween sale will be in there since plus likes to do that.

DivineAssault 1364d ago

looks like im renewing ps plus nx week..

GreenRanger1364d ago

Two questions:
1) If i get PS Plus and my subscription runs out; do the games i have downloaded auto-delete or just deactivate until i renew my subscription?
2) Is it too early for the Christmas hat?

Gamesgbkiller1364d ago

well . you just can't play it.
It will not delete it self .

Raccoon1364d ago

1) all access deactives/expires except for avatars and themes
2) it's always best to be early instead of being late.. Since thanksgiving is up next I recommend a pilgrim hat to fill the void.

Raccoon1364d ago

I think all rules that apply to ps3 should apply to ps vita in terms of ps+ on the vita. 1 free tittle from each compatible category....

Gamesgbkiller1364d ago

They should focus on PSV titles more!
