ZoyosJD892d ago

Unfortunately, looks like Sony has sucked a lot of gamers into paying for online. I wish people would look at the bigger picture, and look at the road that is being paved. I'll keep my PS3, but Steam is the only real choice this next generation IMO.

RiPPn892d ago

@BattleAxe: If you have a PS3 and don't have plus, you're doing it wrong.

Ehh, you can't really blame them for having to charge. Steam has some good sales but doesn't give away legit games like PS+ gets. It's even more so if you own a Vita and a PS4.

Plus most of the game servers from steam games are actually community funded. When everyone pays for the service like this, it allows for some complete fluid interaction that steam can't quite replicate.

This is all coming from someone that owns a very capable PC with a 1440p monitor.

Consoles have their place too and the cost associated are quite validated. If you enjoy gaming first and foremost you will realize this.

BattleAxe892d ago (Edited 892d ago )

PS+ is indeed good value at this point, but the games they give for free are games that I've already played, or games that I'm not interested in. If you don't have a very large budget for buying games, then I agree that PS+ is really good.

I was really supportive of PS+ when it wasn't mandatory, and instead was a value added service. The way I look at it is, if I buy a game for $60.00, I'm paying for a single player campaign and I'm paying for multiplayer modes.

If I don't have PS+, or I choose not to renew a PS+ subscription, I lose over half the value of the $60.00 I paid for that game. I would say that the single player portion is an increasingly small part of most games these days, so the majority of that $60.00 is being used to pay for multiplayer. So what I'm saying is that without paying for PS+ or Xbox Live, the games you buy don't have any value on their own. If you don't pay for the subscription, then you can't play all of the content on the disc that you have bought.

In which case, they should be separating multiplayer from single player content and selling them separately, because it's not fair that you have to pay the full shot of $60.00, and then you are also forced to subscribe to PS+, otherwise you can't play everything you have paid for.

BattleAxe892d ago

I don't get what people are disagreeing with... This isn't about being a Sony fan or an Xbox fan or whatever. Think about what the argument is here.

I'm amazed at how everyone criticized Microsoft for charging a subscription to play games online (myself included), and yet now that Sony is doing it, everything is ok. People just don't make any sense these days lol

Conzul892d ago

Normally I'd agree with you BattleAxe but Sony is in dire financial straights right now. Cut them a bit of slack, eh?

Rhaigun891d ago

I would agree with Battleaxe normally, but seeing as how a year subscription amounts to $4.16 a month, it seems like nitpicking.

@ZoyosJD

The "limit for 2" is a nice gesture to some of us and a bane to scalpers.

I thank Sony/retailers.

showtimefolks892d ago

Isn't GameStop offering $29.99 Black Friday? Also I think targets having it too

But that will be rush and full of chaos

Plus is such am awesome service I hope with ps4 more people get to experience it and put pressure on ms to improve Xbox libe's reward offerings

Livingon600892d ago

Any opinions on Playstation Plus before I get this? How does it compare to Microsoft's service?

talhat2892d ago

Great service you get your money back from the amount of free games you get. It'll only get better with the ps4

fendernow892d ago

Great service? Its pretty much known fact that Microsoft is the best deal and gives you the best service online. Playstation Plus is improving but they are light years behind Microsoft.

I know its a running joke about MS's cloud service, but to have your own dedicated servers at the flip of a switch is bliss.

dcj0524892d ago

@fend ever heard of steam?

tubers892d ago (Edited 892d ago )

Best service if you have a PS4/PS3/VITA and starting out as a new Playstation member/gamer.

Makes sure to download/que all the free games and while UCGA/GR/etc. are still free.

fendernow892d ago

This is not a bad deal per se. BUt do not compare this PS+ with MS. MS has way too many features, benefits, services over Playstation +;

Soldierone892d ago

Care to list examples that are legitimate features over PS Plus and not opinion?

Hicken892d ago

Name some of these services XBL supposedly has over PS+.

Yeah, I thought so.

Playstationologist892d ago

There's something really wrong with you people. psn matches xbl for multiplayer and gives you free games. wtf could xbl have better for a game console?

kneon892d ago (Edited 892d ago )

fendernow is correct, Xbox live Gold has plenty of services that PS+ doesn't have, like Netflix, hulu etc. Sure these are already free on Playstation but they aren't part of PS+ so technically he is correct, yet he is still so very wrong.

LeCreuset892d ago

@kneon

You beat me to it. Have a funny bubble.

Back-to-Back892d ago

Yea it sucks when psn has matched or even surpassed xbl and psn players get free games via plus. Bad time to be an xbox gamer.

KwietStorm891d ago

Yep. Like requiring XBL Gold to use twitter.

Fz6soldier891d ago

Maybe in 2007, but things change and PS+ gives you good games, ms gives you halo 3. Stop living in 2007. With party chat/cross game chat/discounts/free games,PS+ is arguably better or equal to live. Stop using fanboy logic.

You will get your money back in free games, avatars, and discounts on the first month. Then its all gains, games, and fun :)

MikeGdaGod892d ago (Edited 892d ago )

PS Plus is a great deal...the amount of free games more than pays for the fee.

the reason the Xbox live fee seems to add so much is because MS sets all the features behind a paywall. you can't do ANYTHING (besides play single player) on Xbox without paying the fee.

and even though PS Plus is required to play most on-line multiplayer, F2P games (DC Universe, Warframe, Blacklight) do not...you can still game online without PS Plus

there's no way MS would ever allow such a thing.

Soldierone892d ago

If you get it right now, on PS4 there is already 2 free games. Each 15 dollars, so 30 dollars worth of content already.

If you have a PS3, I believe there is 7 games right now, and 3 or 4 for Vita.

Statix892d ago

PS+ is a far better value than Xbox Live, due to it being cheaper, and offering much more in the way of discounts and free stuff/games. PSN (on PS4) has basically every networking feature and functionality that XBL currently has.

The only thing you could possibly argue in favor for XBL's service is that it *supposedly* utilizes a much larger infrastructure of cloud servers, which *may* aid in greater stability, connectivity, and download speeds overall. Whether or not these extra servers actually affects the end-user experience in a noticeable way remains to be seen.

LeCreuset892d ago

People are already covering the benefits of Plus, so I'll advise you on something else. If you get Plus, be sure to download every free game they offer, even if it's for a system you don't have yet. You want to make sure you get it into your download history, just so you have the option of getting those games for free later on should you get the system they're on.

dragon82892d ago

This is something I tell all my friends who only own a PS3. You want to have all those free games ready for you if you get a Vita eventually.

KwietStorm891d ago

You don't have to actually download though. Just click through purchase.

refocusedman892d ago

Please ignore Fend he's either a fanboy or grossly misinformed. PS+ is great and the playstation network can be great as long as you have friends who play online. Live is a great service as well but, I wouldnt really say that their is a tangible difference between the two.....Except for the interface which kinda sucks on PSN.

Godmars290892d ago

Just need to know if you have to give up you CC#.

tdogchristy90892d ago

No cc, it can work just like XBL cards. You just need the code on the card.

flyingmunky892d ago

You can also use the CC and then remove your number so it isn't out there.

Majin-vegeta892d ago

Gamestop will be having this for $30 on Black Fridat.But still a good deal non the less.

PSnation4892d ago

i'll just wait on black friday and get my ps+ cards at gamestop for $30
