A game trial for a 4 year old game? And when Chains of Olympus came out..the demo was available to ALL PS3 owners. Playstation Plus is turning out to be a joke so far IMO...I'd rather take that $50 subsription fee and put it towards Infamous 2 or Vanquish. At least then I know that my money is going towards something I KNOW I want.

number47- Ummm...the person who can't read is apparently YOU. When did I say that these were the only two things Plus offers? I've been scoping out EVERYTHING Plus has to offer since it came out and so far..its STILL not worth it for me.

I KNOW Plus offers a great value...but the things its offering doesn't interest me. Take GT5 for example. Even though I don't care for racing sims, I'm 99.9% sure that it will be a fantastic driving sim and will be the BEST driving sim ever. Just because something is not for me, doesn't mean that I can't acknowledge that its a good deal for other people.

Sidenote: Yeah, having one bubble in a community in which 85% of its members are insecure beings who bicker over pieces of technology and can't accept others opinions TRULY says alot about me lol.

No wonder you have 1 bubble. You can't read.
Plus, while not for me.. offers a lot more than these two things.

Sure, pretend these are the only things Plus offers...

not sure what the point is.

Cant explain it well, but everything that's being offered as early access isn't really early. It's just being held back for everyone else to give the impression that PS Plus is actually worth it.

Some of these free games are pretty good, and 50 bucks a year isnt that much, but the "early" stuff just seems like a rip off for everybody else.

EDIT: Btw, I mean I agree with deadreckoning. :P

a game trial for a game that's over 3 years old? lol..

I sure hope they start releasing better content. at least, as far as game trials go.

I am happy with having mushroom wars and critter crunch.

I think the best thing about PS+ is that it's a choice. They don't have any content that I am interested in to justify $50. So I choose not to purchase it. Life continues and online gaming stays the same. Or maybe I could cry about what they have though I don't subscribe. . . More choices!

Yah, I love what plus has so far, but I'd love for it to do the DCUO beta soon and KZ3 beta in the future, as well as a few other betas.
MikeGdaGod  +   1512d ago
don't get me wrong...i love the game and still play it, but i've had it since day one. why would they put something so old out that already had a demo? i usually don't complain but this is bullsh!t!!! where's Zen pinball??? they must know that the people buying Plus are the same people that buy all the games early?!?!?

so far the only thing i've enjoyed so far from Plus is WipeOut

i really don't see the point of these "trials" ( infamous or warhawk ) when a demo was already released for both ..
ThatArtGuy  +   1512d ago
I already have Zen Pinball, and all the DLC tables. I don't have PS+.
madpuppy  +   1512d ago
I am actually getting slightly ILL
that I subscribed to plus so far, everything has been junk...I don't own a psp and most minis are garbage. and the themes they give you are either nothing special or when it is a dynamic theme it is something I am not interested in.

unless things start ramping up this will be my first and last year of plus.

God of War PSP demo?
What good is that when you can't play PSP games on the PS3? I mean PS+ was meant for PS3 content only anyways.
SPARDA_426  +   1512d ago
Nope its Playstation plus. So its both ps3 and psp.
Sandal  +   1512d ago
This is what it says on the PSBlog
"PlayStation Plus is for PS3 owners as subscribership can only be purchased on the PSN Store. However, some of the content – minis and PS One Classics – available each month will also be playable on your PSP if you have one. Download them on the PS3 and transfer to your PSP, or download directly from the PSP Store or Media Go for PSP."

Keywords being "also be playable on" implying that everything will work on the PS3 with some content being given the option to play on PSP like Minis & PS1 classics.

It says "However, some of the content – minis and PS One Classics – available each month will also be playable on your PSP if you have one."

It DOESN'T say "However, some of the content – PSP Games and PSP Demos – available each month will ONLY be playable on your PSP if you have one."

Touche. It's bullshit, it's a PS3 service yet they're using PSP games as incentive?
AssassinHD  +   1511d ago
Actually it is a PSN service.
PshycoNinja  +   1512d ago
I have a PSP
So my Plus subscription was well worth it.
finbars75  +   1512d ago

I was expecting Warhawk to be one of the PSN games we get. Not a trial. Plus it was on sale awhile back. You would think PSN+ would at least match the old sale.

Wow I told myself not to complain because its still new but damn this is a bad update. I mean warhawk? If you don't have that game already then you prob aren't ever going to get it. GOS is good but if you don't have a psp this update is useless. I mean how about a discount on shank or castle crashers? I just need to wait till they start giving out betas before I start getting excited again.

were the hell is starhawk?
guitarded77  +   1512d ago
I agree... where the hell is Starhawk? Wait... I assume it's in Austin, Texas at Light Box Interactive.
Silly gameAr  +   1512d ago
So disappointed.
kalel114  +   1512d ago
They have been pushing Warhawk pretty hard over the last couple of months. I think they are just trying to get new PS3 owners into the game, because a Starhawk announcement is coming soon. More players playing the first, increases the amount of interested gamers for the sequel.
guitarded77  +   1512d ago
Definitely. + Warhawk is still a kick ass game.
