"I have, for the longest time, always been very skeptical of any subscription services offered on consoles as I always believed them to be a greedy business practice trying to force gamer's hands and pockets into paying more for an already expensive hobby. Well today I can tell you without a doubt that PlayStation Plus has changed my heart and mind on the topic; the business model in play here has the gamers in mind first. I could go on and on about the benefits of being a PS Plus member, but instead I'm just going to try and explain to you why PlayStation Plus is the biggest reason why you should own a PS3 this holiday season. I know I've just listed about 17 games for the price of 3 ($200.00 total), but I'm asking you to forget all that for a second. I'm telling you that with PlayStation Plus, you can walk into a store and buy a PS3 and not purchase a single game with it; then come home, hook up your PS3 to the internet, sign up for PlayStation Plus, and you're guaranteed to be playing at least one new game every month of the year at no extra cost to you." - Gamer-Rider.com
