PlayStation Plus: Want vs. Need

TGS writes: "I was in the audience at Sony's E3 press conference this year when they revealed what Playstation Plus (PSPlus), the $49.99/yr subscription-based service upgrade to PSN, was going to entail.

I bought it , its always like having a surprise come to me every week for the next year and 3 months. Its already bred new life into the wipeout HD community and every game that comes out every month will have a plethora of people playing .

I would subscribe if I knew it guarenteed beta invites (does it?) to any beta I want. That alone would be worth $50 a yr

That it does my dear Mr Tretton. Betas are included!

Getting annoyed in a more than likely below average game, that also lags inst my idea of a well spent $50 a yr

All it needs is cross-game chat (on Plus or normal free PSN) and I'm good to go.
