PlayStation Plus, And How Sony Look Like They’ve Got It Just Right

"PlayStation Plus might just be the smartest thing Sony have ever done. It is, on the surface, an extraordinarily generous offering from the platform holder: in exchange for roughly the price of one new game subscribers get access to literally dozens (the official line is ‘up to 65′) of other games."

PS+ is the best paid service on consoles by far. It pays for itself. I just downloaded Darksiders for free and love it thanks to PS+. PS+ gives you many free games every month plus huge discounts on PS store content. All for $50 a year. But it's optional. Of course if you don't want it you can still play your games that you paid $60 for online for free and enjoy YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and access your Netflix account all for free on the PS3's as well. It would be criminal for Sony to charge for those free features. PS+ is just the icing on the cake and the industry is in love with it. PS+ is one reason why the PS3 shot to 2nd place trailing only the Wii despite launching a full year behind. I love PS+. I even use it for my avatar.

Day one of Plus: I bought PS plus ASAP when the store updated. There was a fat princess avatar free. What I decided to do is to put that avatar as my new avatar to go right next to my PS+ symbol. It symbolize one thing.

PS+ Spoils You! :P

Juet call it what it is, its a fantastic service that Actually gives you more then what you pay for

Instead of paying to unlock features that are free everywhere else

We need a plus avatar, that would be cool )

I would not have bought a Vita if it wasn't for Plus.

Sony really came through on the Instant Game Collection initiative. It's great if you're an existing PS3/Vita, but even better if you just bought one of the systems.

It's a good deal.

I just can't get past their uber slow DL speeds.

Karpetburnz1306d ago (Edited 1306d ago )

I have never had any problems with download speeds, I have seen many download comaprisons between the two and theyre both about the same speed, I think it just depends on your internet connection. But if you have PS+, you can download updates when you sleep.

@GusBricker

It's your internet connection/setup.
How do I know? Because I use to think the same.
I always thought PSN had really slow downloading speeds until I changed my router. I am now averaging around 1.5MB per second. It absolutely amazing the change in speed I have.

GusBricker1306d ago

Yeah, did that and my PS3 has a wired connection and the damn thing took an hour to DL the Journey demo.

But the worst was about a year ago, I tried to DL InFamous and gave up after about 5-6 hours at like 56%

At Gus, call sony and have them open the required ports by sony so ur Internet will work faster. I downloaded Journey in like 5mins.
