OMG, I love destruction derby!

Epic game!

I still remember the cheat for invincibility. Enter your driver name as "DAMAGE".

We need some NEW good games for free. I can't even remember the last time they released a new, good psn game for free since we got Stacking for free. (No, 'Welcome Back' does not count)

blumatt2224d ago (Edited 2224d ago )

Gotta love getting free games, Cloud saving, automatic downloading, and discounted games for $50 a year, instead of just being given the ability to play the online component of your already bought game. lol

PS+ has already paid for itself 3 fold for me. I will definitely be re-upping my subscription when it goes out in another year. Can't wait to play some Limbo!!!!

Blaze9292224d ago (Edited 2224d ago )

Lol...Sounds like you gotta like, proove or reassure it's worth it to you or something...or were you just bragging/trolling?

I mean I totally get what you're saying but the way you said all that was just pretty funny to me.

Like you gotta make yourself believe PS+ is worth it in your mind by constantly naming things most probably don't care about...

MrBeatdown2224d ago

I love PS+ too but...

gotta love a misinformed troll.

the xbox live got offers and discounts on a daily basis for gold members.
add to that:
global invites
free trail for EVERY xbla game
party chat up to 8 players
cross-game chat

blumatt2224d ago (Edited 2224d ago )

That's true, I guess. There are other features that XBL Gold offers you, BUT I offer you this question: If online gaming were free like PSN, and Gold offered you all those features you just mentioned, do you think you would pay for Gold anymore? I'm honestly curious. It's an interesting question. Kinda hard to say, I suppose. I'm just curious how much people REALLY care about those features, or if they just buy Gold subscriptions to keep playing games online.

And yeah, admittedly, I did come off the wrong way with the way I worded my comment above. Sorry about that. lol

dark-hollow2224d ago

for me? yes.
if psn was anywhere near what xbla offers i will be a happy psn+ member.

but until now? imo it is not better at all!

Mottsy2223d ago

@ blumatt yes i would. Just for the reason for cross game chat. I use that everyday im on the xbox. Everything else is cool. But its nice talking to a family memeber or friend that is in the army or away on business and still being able to shoot the shizzle with them even if you dont wanna play the same game. its all a preference and for me the features xboxlive bring make it worth it to me.

LOGICWINS2224d ago

PS+ isn't worth it..and thats my opinion.

Qore episodes can be found on Youtube..and if you really want to know about games, you'll find more information on the Internet/N4G

Cloud saving? LOL, I can just save my games on a USB and transfer the saves to my laptop.

Automatic downloading? Who cares? I'll just download what I have to download when I see it.

Most of the free stuff they give out are old Sega games and DLC for PSN games that barely anyone has.

Also, full game trials for 9 month old games? I honestly don't care. I get a better experience watching the full game walkthroughs on Youtube...for free.

MrBeatdown2224d ago (Edited 2224d ago )

"most of the free stuff they give out are old Sega games and DLC for PSN games that barely anyone has".

I'd post the face_palm again, but I don't want to take up so much space.

Those Sega games are free in addition to the monthly PSN games. They are nothing but bonuses.

Plus, you're forgetting (or ignoring) the other stuff, like PSone games, minis, betas, avatars, themes, and discounts, and other random bonuses (like Stacking).

If it's your opinion that those things aren't worth it, that's fine and dandy, but your little analysis of the games offered for free isn't even remotely accurate.

And not all game saves can be copied to USB. They can be uploaded though.

radphil2224d ago (Edited 2224d ago )

"Also, full game trials for 9 month old games? I honestly don't care."

You must have missed the inFamous 2 one then.

Still up there.

wsoutlaw872224d ago

I care about auto downloads. When there's a new patch or update you can sit there and wait for it to download, I'll let my ps3 do it while I'm sleeping.

LOGICWINS2224d ago

"I care about auto downloads. When there's a new patch or update you can sit there and wait for it to download, I'll let my ps3 do it while I'm sleeping."

Does this work for PS3 games as well? For example, lets say a new Mortal Kombat patch comes out. Will the PS3 automatically download it , even if the Mortal Kombat disc isn't in my PS3?

Fred_C_Dobbs2223d ago

true about those sega classics, but psn+ gave me shatter and stacking for free. and those were both great games.

Finding myself increasingly disappointed with the PS Plus updates, what felt like 3 months of Genesis ports is now just leading into a 3 year old Worms/Soldat clone.

DaTruth2224d ago

Don't worry. Now that they got all the free PS+ users out of the loop, they can now jack up the real deals! I use to see so many discounts on PSOne classics and all downloadable games, but since the PS+ was free, many of those discounts have vanished!

Kinda stupid on Sony's behalf, as many gamers will think this is all PS+ has to offer and never bother with it! Sony would have been better off not offering it!

Disclaimer: I only own Playstation consoles!

ian722223d ago (Edited 2223d ago )

I thought PS+ was a bit poor when I got it free for a month. I didn't find anything worth getting apart from the free games, which were for PSN been down anyhow.
They didn't make me want to pay for it with the month trial.
I only own Playstation consoles also.

Ravenor2222d ago

No doubt, even this update is better then Golden Axe don't get me wrong. I just don't see the incentive if you have 95% of the exclusive gems (Flower,Eden,shooter etc) and buy most stuff you want right when it comes out.

The only thing I really get out of PS+ is the odd beta. Not really worth the price tag, something I really wish wasn't the case considering Sony already has my money for it.

Shouldn't need to add a disclaimer, the Playstation only crowd hasn't devolved into a pitch fork wielding mob...yet.

Fred_C_Dobbs2223d ago

no doubt ps+ will get better as we approach the end of people 1 year subscription.now that freeloaders 1 month is over.

TheDivine2224d ago

Idk im happy with it, i admit i thougt it would be more consistant though. One month you get stacking, one month comet crash, then like a few months of crap minis and old garbage snk games. They need one good game a month imo. I like it for the discounts though, ive probly saved 20 bucks so far and i have 9 monts left? Thing is it makes you buy more games because you see discounts and deals so its really a sneaky way to get a sub and sell more games lol. Hell if you like arcade games like me def give it a go.

StarWolf2224d ago

ps+ is a waste of money. Just buy the things you want instead of pre-purchasing 50 dollars worth of things and having some guy tell you what you purchased for the month.

LOGICWINS2224d ago

Amen to that. You save more money just buying the few things on PSN you actually want.
