The new lineup will take effect on July 21 and run through August 17. Here's what will be available.
Hmm think I'll be buying plus next month depending on what comes out. Not really seeing much benefit in it as every game on discount I pretty much have especially the DLC stuff to. The all that stuff that is given away sure is interesting...
i dont see how i dont have this service yet. i mean i am fine with playstation Home and playing my games online for free, but this really does pack a punch in terms of value. [email protected] alex below- yeah like if your anticipating a new psn game and dont know if they are going to discount it at a later date. with $60 boxed games you know for a fact that the price will come down, so you wait. i here ya... i doubt them newer games will get discounts, at least until sony runs out of games to discount.
The thing I don't like about plus is the fact new games won't be on offer straight away, so do I buy them when theyre new or just hope sony puts them on offer soon? It will just be annoying when a month down the line sony is offering them either for free or at a discounted rate for plus members when I have already purchased them and am a plus member.
@Posted up: This is the same dilemma I am in as well, which is why I'm waiting until they bring something in that makes it worth while. For now it seems more like a status with very few benefits. @Alex Kidd: Yep I guess the best way is to stay connected with Playstation Life style or Playstation blog. I think they usually state what is going to happen. More than likely if Sony would ever offer it as free it will be a while so Plus members won't get cheated.
Yeah your probably right but I just cant decide whether to subscribe, because anything from the store I like I would normally buy straight away so when something I like becomes available on PS Plus I would probably already have it. But it does offer alot of value and a couple of good features (auto dloads etc.) But I just think if they had've done say 25% off everything old or new to PS Plus members it would be alot more apealing
@Alex: Same here, it seems like it would be something extremely good for those who don't know a lot about PSN and it's offers, but for the likes of those who visit N4G or any other game sites it would take a lot to appease them. Though it would vary from one person to the next. I would assume that on some weekends or whatnot they would probably up the discount rate. Or perhaps they may do that for those who have had PS Plus for a long time. Will admit that it looks somewhat appealing, but still not enough yet something that I personally will wait and see :/.
this is playstation plus JAPAN. should have been mentioned somewhere. dates are not the same as eu/us either. next update will be aug3 in eu/us.
Yes, this thing is paying for itself.
I hate how they choose what game we get each month for free. We should choose ourselves. Most likely they will just give away psn games that are not selling as much anymore.
We choose? Then Sony would make no money on new releases.
Everyone would choose MW2 DLC to be free and Activision would implode on itself for losing more than one penny. It would be cool, but never gonna happen. They gotta regulate things a certain way.
Maybe they could offer a couple titles people could choose from. That would appeal to more people I would think.
give us a choice between certain games to get for free.
C'on Sony, if you want a customer (AKA me) justify your self with some decent stuff, for example the MOH BETA would........... Oh wait, got to keep xbots happy, haven't we?
Loving the disagrees guys, says it all.
You do? Here is another one for you then. Thank me later!
You're not missing much with the MOH beta. After putting in over 80 hours into BC2 multiplayer, MOH feels like a watered down version of BC2 that had drunk sex with COD. Maybe we'll get Killzone 3 beta.
I cant believe the crap all the people who have sony plus are getting.This is exactley why Im not buying it.I had this funny feeling they where going to give people nothing.I mean games and avatars that everyone already owns because they have been out for a year or so.Plzzzzz maybe something new and refreshing not the same old crap.Waste of $50 to me.I dont need this just to get betas I get them for free anyways.Why bother.
I'm pretty sure this is for Japan. If your in the U.S. or somewhere else you should wait for the official announcement before hating.
Hey if people wanna pay for discounts, let them. Ill be paying for superior online (which sucks, cuz XBLS should have free online play)
this is PS+ JAPAN... us 2nd month starts aug3 and content has already been announced.
I mainly got it for Qore, which is $25 a year, right? I also don't download a whole lot of avatars and themes or PSN games -- they have to be really important or groundbreaking for me to do that, so this lets me try stuff I'd never waste money on. It's a pretty decent deal, if you ask me.
"I mainly got it for Qore, which is $25 a year, right?" That's exactly why $50 was nothing to worry about for me. I would have had to renew Qore in Oct. so $25 for some discounts, betas, themes, avatars, game trials, not a bad deal.
ehhhhh, still nothing that entices me to pay another $50 a year. comon sony!
Or 4 bucks a month? Yeah, that's a terrible deal. /s
Nothing there worthy signing up for.
This is for Japan is it not? I'd bet it is considering The Last Guy already had a demo in the U.S. and we already got Fat Princess avatars. Those hating on PS+ need to open their mind a bit and realize that you have a CHOICE. You don't have to get this service, its not required, and not getting it doesn't affect your current FREE PSN use. Those who use the store a lot benefit, and those who use it just fairly often benefit like myself as well. I already had Wipeout HD but got Age of Zombies and Field Runners free, including some themes that I keep forever and some add ons for Magic Ball that I would have NEVER purchased without PSN+. Both Age of Zombies and Field Runners have been an enjoyment that I wouldn't have had. The fact that I've already gotten almost $50 worth of stuff from Sony for a $50 purchase means I'm already winning and its the first month. Those who are prepared to say "yeah but but you lose it when your sub ends".... well I'm a Sony support, I only own a PS3, and I plan on keeping my subscription which will be fully supported by my 500GB HDD in my PS3. So no, I'm not losing anything here.
I gotta get a new HDD for Plus id say anyone with 80GB or less get a new HDD. I got a 80GB HDD and its just about filled since plus does pack a punch your gonna need a lot of space.
Definately, especially for people like myself who plan on re-upping more than likely and will keep all this content on their HDD. I upgraded to a 500GB the week before PSN+ came out and couldn't be happier :)
remember that games like infamous and lbp just released on psn as well. lots more to come. even though they are only 7 & 3GB , getting ten of them will use some space...
it's for japan.
since I hardly buy anything from the PS store, PS+ is working for me. Just relax a bit...PS+ willl mature for your likings.... How many times have we asked Sony for things and they've delivered? How many things r we still asking for and we know theyr'e coming with it? B patient, it'll get better. Game on!
I already pay for live...thats enough for now until + shows me something more that I want
I wonder if PixelJunk Racer 2 will have a discount next week.
I think im gonna bite the bullet and subscribe, as i dont buy anything off the ps store usually, i will now
That after July 20th that if you do decide to sign up for Playstation Plus that the prievious block of games won't be available to download? i.e free Little Big Planet. And that you can only pick from the new selection of games? I downloaded LBP from a friend who signed up, i'm waiting to see if i get to keep my copy after the TRIAL expires. If so i might just go halves with him and share instead. If its not fully shareable though, i'll probably give it a miss, for now anyway.
