but the trick is that you have to put your credit card number to redeem it. The first month is free but.... =/

krisq1864d ago

PSN Plus doesn't automatically renew itself. It's not Xbox Live.

Paradicia1864d ago

And what Krigsq fails to mention is that it's optional and you can opt out at any time.

fuzion17c1864d ago

Got my codes! Good til' March 31st.

GraveLord1864d ago

No, you don't need to put in your credit card number.

sabestar1864d ago

Are you sure? bec I plugged in the code and it's not allowing me to proceed without using a credit card, I wish there was a way to bypass it.

aDDicteD1864d ago

i think you need the credit card to have it

chaldo1864d ago (Edited 1864d ago )

So everyone is receiving this? because I haven't yet.

SSKILLZ1864d ago

Yeah, it also comes with two spare codes for friends want one ?

I guess the 2 free months of PS+ last summer didn't get them as many new subscribers as they hoped.

Think they'll ever realize we're not buying subscriptions because we don't see much value in owning and maintaining one?

FunAndGun1864d ago

There is plenty value in a Plus subscription.

Either you are not looking hard enough or you just don't like playing a variety of games.

killcycle1864d ago

Well I had all the old content on the store on it's initial release, I don't think i had it's value. For new customers it's a great service.

But for old school PSNers like me and others out there it's not worth it. Not now at least, unless the 150mb cloud is enough for you.

It works either way. Previous promotion was crap = run another one until success is achieved. Promotion went very well = still run another one 'cause why stop if it works?

I wouldn't say PS Plus is in the same league as WoW, Netflix, or Live in terms of subscription base, but that doesn't mean it's not doing well. By the way, I hesitated for a year before finally getting a year-long subscription, and now I can say I'm very happy with it.

gypsygib1864d ago

Well, you get a lot more free stuff with PS Plus. The only reason PS Plus isn't worth it is because Sony gives the most important thing away for free - Online MP.

If Online MP wasn't free PS Plus would be better than Live in many (not all) aspects.

Why buy the cow when the milks free.

Netflix and XBL do 1 month free trials too. XBL *just* had a free weekend in the US. Got a month of free Gold when I got my 360, plus I still see 'get an extra month for a dollar' ads on the dashboard all the time. People are reading way too much into this. Free trials are nothing new. Buy a new car and you'll probably get one for satellite radio.

Didn't they just sell a buncha PS3s on Black Friday too? There's been a couple million new customers added since the post-hack Plus promo that never got that deal. Maybe now, they can too.

double post

Rainstorm811864d ago

YEAH!!

1100$ USD worth of free content in 2011 for 50$ a year!? What a ripoff.....I could just use that money for XBL just to play online..../SARCASM

Agent_00_Revan1864d ago

I have tried to see the value in PSN+, but to me it just isnt there. I'm not getting much more then the free version. Content is scarce and doesnt seem to be updated much. There are even pretty few PSN+ discounts on games.

If they would give out some themes or avatars, maybe even 1 free movie stream a month. Something to make it feel worthwhile. I also feel paying for PSN+ should be able to get us at least 10% just about any game purchase. Digital game downloads are so overpriced especially considering that there is no packaging cost, retailer cut, or shipping.

Do you say that when Microsoft gives out free Xbox live gold as well? I'm curious on that.

kreate1864d ago

I recieved like 5 free gold trials from MS so far.
I received 0 from sony.

I guess no one is buying gold membership for xbox live.
also this month with the new dashboard upgrade, xbox gold membership is 1 dollar cuz no one is buying it apparently .....

consolez_FTW1864d ago (Edited 1864d ago )

yeah,exactly man. Just because someone gives out free trials doesn't mean people aren't buying it. THey just want more people to experience it and try it out.

Kthalas1864d ago

I've only gotten 1 free gold trial from MS.

I rarely use my 360 and I rarely play online, so there's no point for me to pay for Live Gold. Even if I could get a year for $12.

I do use my PS3 quite a bit and I did pick up the PSN +. I've gotten a few games for free. Some were good, some weren't and some were classics.

Bundi1864d ago

35 million gold members and $1 billion in xbox live revenue say they are.
But you wouldn't get it. . .
