WOW! Sony is really pushing PS+. Can't argue against all those games.

Kanzes1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

Only insane people who doesn't subscribe PS+... you gets a lot of free games on your Vita, PS3, and soon PS4

Nice try, you must work for Sony since you know so much, otherwise I'd just think you are a big fat troll.
People keep using that excuse that you "rent" the games, even though you have a whole year to complete them. Those same people talk crap now that they get AC2 and Halo 3, please.
I can't be any happier with my PS+, even though I have a backlog of games because of TLOU

WhittO1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

Do you get as many games in the EU? UK Store

I tried looking the other day and it looked like they only offer like 8-10 games? lol

Couldn't find the list of free titles

BabyTownFrolics1512d ago


do you have any sources to back up that claim or are you speculating just to be provocative. If you can share a citation with the class I would love to see it. Seriously, I'm interested.

PS+, at the moment, offers 5 to 6 free games per month. That's 60+ free games per year.
Lots of discounts.
1GB cloud storage for PS3, 1GB cloud storage for PSVITA.
Auto firmware/gamepatch update. Auto gamesave upload.
Free themes, free avatars.
Access to closed betas and early demos.
Full game trials.

It seems that PS+ will be offering 3 PS4 games for free on PS+ at PS4 launch.
I'm expecting 7 to 8 free games per month after the launch of PS+ on PS4.

PsychOff1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )


That is only Drive Club. You clearly are assuming every other PS4 game will be like that on PS+ which it won't be.

The fact they are giving away anything PS4 in PS+ right away should be enough for people but as always it never is. I mean what do you expect for PS4 games in PS+ right away? Use some common sense please.

Hell we probably won't get that many PS4 games if anything it will be like the PS Vita for a while. A mix of old games and PS4 ones occasionally until later on.

Regardless you people can complain about PS+ but it is one sub for PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. I don't care how you flip it or try comparing it to some rental service it isn't the same thing sure there are similarities.

RGDubz1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

Prepared to be disappointed next-gen, if you think DriveClub will be the only trial/half game you're gonna get.

A whole year is still a rental, see rental in the dictionary.

@whitt0 no those are the games they've been given since PS+ started if you weren't a member then you only get a few games at a time, you cannot join US PS+ today and download all those games.

I can get links but if you search about DriveClub not being a full game for PS+ members on google I'm sure you'll find that what I'm saying is true. & the sources.

You can expect 3 to 4 half games/trials at launch for PS+, don't expect free full game rentals next-gen like it was with the PS3.

SONY is pulling bs as well next-gen but they're being subtile about unlike Microsoft.

Koyes1512d ago

PS+ is easily the best videogame service of all time. I just finished Demon's Souls yesterday, a game I rate as my top 3 for this gen and without PS+, I would never have even considered playing it. I also played Hitman Absolution, Sleeping Dogs and inFAMOUS 2, all for free and that is just a small portion of what there is. With the new update, we get Battlefield 3 and Saints Row 3! Two blockbuster games for free and the former, I have not played yet so with PS+, I can play it for free :D

Thegamer411512d ago

Well I can prove you wrong right now since Outlast is already confirmed to be free with PS+ and the PS4 is not even released yet, so yes, its safe to assume we will get more full games for free in the near future.

Why o why1512d ago


Ps plus games are indefinite rentals....whats your point though. You seem really bitter people are enjoying the best rental service know on consoles. Maybe you should use your energy finding some data to back up the crudd you pulled from your rare. All you're doing is projecting....all you're looking like is a bitter troll.......get back under your bridge of hate

gaffyh1512d ago

@WhittO - PS+ is an area where so far, the EU offerings have tended to be even better. They always offer a certain amount of games for a while (I think 6?, can't be bothered checking), and then rotate other content each month.

WhittO1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

its not really an instant collection if you can't even download all them titles since they are only up there for a month or so at a time.

So if I delete a game due to space and it is no longer available can I re-download it?

*Edit Also why was I getting disagrees for asking a question? lol is it because fanboys didn't like the answer?

HarryMasonHerpderp1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )


If you downloaded it into your download list then you can get the games back from there whenever you want (whether you have deleted the games on your hard drive or not)

MysticStrummer1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

One word to prove RGDubz wrong :


Edit - @WhittO - While a title is available for no extra charge, click to download then cancel. After that, you can download it whenever you want, as long as your membership is active.

sweendog1512d ago

reply to whitto. yes once you have initially downloaded it you can delete it and download it as many times as you want. also if it is taken off the instant games list but you have downloaded it you can still play it. not sure where this one year thing keeps getting mentioned though

gaffyh1512d ago

Also if your PS+ lapses, you can't play the PS+ games, but if you resubscribe, you get them all back. They're stored under your download list in the account settings.

WhittO1512d ago

^^^ Thanks thats good to know.

I would download them all anyway and just delete the ones I don't want.

Just sorry that I'm not going to get to play any of these games for free since they wont be available when I get PS+ :{

LakerGamerEnthusiast1512d ago

Or......... people who don't have the money to support the subscription atm... Hence, me. lol

Rachel_Alucard1512d ago

Make sure to finish the job and down bubble all trolls! Keeps the site pest free and your day more enjoyable!

Thank you for listening!

PS+ is one of the reasons why Sony is coming into this next gen with so much momentum, and viewed as a "good guy" by media these days.


Thantalas1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

When PlayStation Plus was first launched I didn't see any benefit to me - just discounts of stuff I didn't want. Then last year the Instant Game Collection was announced, I tried it and I was stunned by the value it offers. The standard price is about the cost of ONE new game, for that you get at least three top quality games a month. Games like Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution, Arkham City, Ico Collection, Uncharted 3. These are not 1 dollar games! I now have a backlog of titles to clear before the next gen.

Somebody mentioned about the PS4 not having any games on PS+. But as a new console its obvious there won't be any library titles at launch. However as the year passes games will be added - this is what happened with the Vita. In fact I don't own a Vita, but I already have a library of games for it. Honestly, if you have a PlayStation console and an internet connection it's worth trying.

devwan1512d ago

Exactly the same experience here - discounts and online saves didn't really appeal when it launched, but once the instant game collection appeared I jumped in and never looked back. I bought a Vita day one but never expected plus to come to Vita so strongly and at no extra cost... this bodes really well for ps4.

Another great thing is I know I'll still get use from my ps3s around the house for some time to come even when I have ps4.

imdaboss11512d ago

xboxlive what?? playstation + thats where its at..worth every penny!

GribbleGrunger1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

62p per rental for one year
31p per rental for two years
15p per rental for three years

I'm taking that! Thank you very much.

Excuse me while i pick up my jaw from the floor.

RGDubz1512d ago

Rentals, nothing more.. Gone when your PS+ expires.

Had they been actual "free" games I'd been a PS+ member a long time ago.

Makasu1512d ago

Why in the world would you get rid of PS PLUS? Its amazeballs!

RGDubz1512d ago

Ask some of my friends who said they never stop being a PS+ member but are no longer PS+ members today, every game they had was a rental in the end.

Why o why1512d ago

Let me see. Did you have a problem being locked out of the multiplayer sections of games this gen.

How much does it cost to rent half of these games for a whole year. Lmao...bitter bitter bitter..

NukaCola1512d ago

Weird, I lot of my PS+ games and content stayed when I lapsed a month. I guess they aren't rentals after all there mr negativity. I used to rent multiplayer, Netflix, and demoes from Xbox, but then I decided that was stupid and canceled that LIVE highway robbery of a bill. But you joined less than 2 weeks ago so you know whatever you say isn't biased.../s

Philoctetes1512d ago

When you rent a game, you're required to return it by a particular date (or pay a late fee). That's not the case with PS+ games. They're yours forever as long as you have a PS+ subscription.

A better analogy is to music subscription services like Rhapsody or Spotify.

RGDubz1512d ago (Edited 1512d ago )

You contradict yourself as soon as you say "as long as you have PS+".

So which is it? do they last forever or expire with PS+? Both? lol

That's an oxymoron if I ever seen one.

The games you actually buy don't expire or require PS+ to play them, so how can you say PS+ "free" games are yours to the same equivalent of you going out and having purchased them yourself?

Makasu1512d ago

Exactly. Besides, 64 games for $50. Win win win.
