BT Games: "Armed with the recommended retail price-worth of cash, we set out to buy as many good games as possible – and we got a lot."
The Humble Bundle - for pc though.
You don't keep PlayStation+ though.
I'm subscribed till 2016, so I could care less about how long I get to keep the games for
you keep it if you are smart and like free games.
Or you buy more games on PC than what is even offered on PS+ and you know, keep the games, and for a price smaller than the yearly price of entry. Oh, and you'll keep the games forever without having to worry about "next gen" hardware making the system incapable of running older titles. And no. They are not "free games" if you pay to rent them. Multiplayer has been and always will be free on PC, so it just seems silly to pay for it on a closed platform like such as a console.
Sorry, I've noticed that I mistakenly omitted a word from my original post. It should have read that you don't keep PlayStation+ games. By the way, the blind fanboyism here is pretty disturbing.Sony fanboys actually believe that rental games are as good as multigenerational games that work out to be the same price or cheaper, and can be kept.
I've heard that dumb "you don't keep the games" argument before, but for how long do you need to keep a game like, let's say, DmC? I finished it in a week and never played it again. You still don't think it saves you money? Take a read http://n4g.com/news/1480389...
There are some games you might want to replay, some games you probably wouldn't. For the games that I don't think I'll replay, I'll wait until they're about $2 on steam. that's not an exaggeration. Besides, for everything in a humblebundle, you only need to pay $5-6. To get the minimum of what is in a humble bundle, you only need to pay $1. I once bought Batman Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition, Batman Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, Scribblenauts: Unlimited, Mortal Kombat collection, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Fear 2, and Fear 3 with all DLC together for only $5. And this isn't the first time I've received so much for my money. Besides, there is no way that every single rental actual appeals to you. So the number really means nothing. I'm sorry but your argument is invalid. There's a reason that gamers really start dabbling in PC never go back to console games(Except for the exclusives).
When you get $500-1000+ worth of content for a $25-50 year subscription I don't think anyone is complaining about being able to keep it. It's like saying Netflix doesn't let you keep the movies. Well no freakin **duh**
I hate lists that include things like Mega drive collection as 28 games though. Sure its got 28 games on it but its 1 game nowadays as nobody spends the amount of time on one of those titles as they used to in fact they probably wont spend as much time combined on those titles as some single games. Its a cop out to boost your number.
▶I think it's kind of hurting studios..? ◀
It's called PS+. Lol
Please explain how you can get 37 games for the price of one with ps+. Last time I knew you don't actually own the games unless you're paying for it. Also don't you only get 1 or 2 games a month? That would cost a whole lot more for 37 games than $60-$70 and even then you don't own them when you stop paying for ps+.
Actually you would get 64 games a year for $50... http://www.technobuffalo.co... I don't care about ownership, because I have played them all, I can still play them all, and plan on having a Plus membership for the life of my PS4...and possibly after that if it continues.
but actually after the first time u subscribe for ps plus u will never stop paying for it because it's just worth the money every year, also it's needed for ps4 multi player. so it's almost like u own them
OK but it's still wayyyy more expensive than 1 game because you have to pay for ps+ every month for the rest of your life to have them. Doesn't even come close to the cost of one game for those.
@Sorane Keep grasping at straws as much as you want, but I buy my membership yearly, so it's $50 (even less if there is a discount)
I bought 3 years worth of plus on black friday. 30 $ each. So for 2 years ill pay 60 $ and get 120 + games. You think I care if I dont "own" them at that price?
@heavy Ok if you think I'm grasping at straws then please explain to me how you can get 37 games for $60-$70 with ps+. Seems to me that you ps fanboys are the ones grasping because my math doesn't come anywhere near the cost of one retail game by using the ps+ format. Remember you can't go over the price of one retail game. With the math you used it's $100 just to be able to play the games for 2 years which is much higher than 1 retail game also. Please explain to me where my math is wrong heavy. Last I knew ps+ was a rental service and you had to keep paying monthly fees just to access the rented games which adds up month after month to no end.
@Sorane SMH... First of all, PS+ costs $50 yearly, not $60 or $70, second, you were already provided a link above (this one http://www.technobuffalo.co... showing that 64 games were given for free. So, if you value the 64 games at $1 each (I'm obviously under valuating games) then you would have saved $64 already. Want more? Let's review some of the latest games on PS+. Uncharted 3 costs $20 at GameStop ($10 if you get it used), DmC also costs $20 ($18 used) Bioshock Infinite costs $30 ($25 used). So, that's $70 if you buy the games new and $53 if you buy the games used. That's only 3 games and the cost of your subscription is already paid off
@heavy That makes no sense. "First of all, PS+ costs $50 yearly, not $60 or $70," Never said it did cost $60 or $70 a year I said that's how much a new retail game cost like the article suggests. "(this one http://www.technobuffalo.co... showing that 64 games were given for free." They're not free in any sense of the word. You have to pay every single month to play those, but for some reason you don't want to add up those costs. Not sure you understand what the word "free" actually means. If I watch a movie on netflix today it costs me about $12 for the monthly fee. If I want to watch the exact same movie on netflix the next month guess what, I have to pay another monthly fee. Do I consider those movies free because I can rent and watch them as much as I want as long as I'm paying the subscription? Not on my life. Not sure why anyone would ever think they were free. I know my bank account doesn't, and I have the same access to tens of thousands of movies there as you have access to those 64 games. So do you also consider netflix movies free? I have Gravity and American Hustle coming tomorrow. Do I consider my subscription paid for because those are $20 movies to buy? Nope and neither does my bank account. It's simple math that you just don't seem to understand. Done with this thread since I'm out of bubbles and you keep talking nonsense without ever coming close to showing a way to get 37 games for the price of one retail game with ps+. Monthly subscription fees add too the cost of those games even if you refuse to believe it. Also those games aren't any more free than a netflix movie which no one in there right mind would think is free.
It's like talking to a wall. Once you pay $50 for a year subscription of PS+, there are no monthly fees, so I have no idea what you are talking about, and even though the games are not "free", the amount of money you save is higher than what you would spend for the individual games
You pay Ps+ yearly not monthly. So you don't pay every month but every year. And if you take advantage of deals you only need to pay every few years. Secondly nothing is free, even free TV you pay electricity to watch it yet they still call it free to air TV. So define it however you want.
Sorane- I really struck a nerve there with my 4 word comment eh? Why does that upset you so much? I've been on PS+ from the first week it came out and I've received access to soooo many games and discounts on so many others that it's unreal I've personally shown the value to a number of friends who game on PS3/4 and they signed up the next day. I'm the type of guy who would buy every big title that came out and love the digital indie stuff. I also used to rent quite a bit (when I was younger and didn't make as much as I do now) so to me $50 a year (or less when it's on sale) is just getting access to a crazy amount of games that maybe I played and traded in already and games that I didn't want to drop the cash on but did want to play. I've even played games in genres I didn't think I would like and enjoyed them immensely. That's the point of PS+, you get to play loads of dif games and developers get to show gamers what they can do and appear generous for letting the game go to subscribers for "free". Take a few ibuprofen for that case of butt hurt and please place me on your ignore list. You are now on mine.
you are the most retarded person i have come across... first of all you get minimum of 6 new games every month across ps3,vita and ps4. second of all there is no monthly payment to download these (free) games as they are part of ps+. now you can either buy 1years ps+ subs or 3months subs its up to you. i dont understand how you can even talk about ps+ when you dont EVEN own playstation nor do you EVEN have ps+. perfect example of (talking out of my ass)
I could maybe make sense of your argument, and others like you who keep clinging to this "you don't own it" argument, except for one glaring flaw to your argument. When you continue to pay for PS+, you not only get to keep the games, but you also get another 50-60 games on the following years. More games than most people will likely play in a year. It's cheaper than renting, it's cheaper than buying games used, and it's cheaper than buying new games and trading them in quickly for store credit. Everything about PS+ is a good value, regardless of if you get to keep the game after your subscription ends. So no the games aren't free. But neither are the 37 games brought for $60-70. Practically free is a better term.
wow, and this site gave 6/10 for infamous... really seems like they know what people want...
Next we should have an article on how we can get any game at all for the price of nothing.
Ssshhhhh... You don't want Petey the Piracy Platypus to show up and start giving lectures, do you?!?
easy to do with humble bundles, you own these games and don't need to keep paying a subscription
B-b-but, Praystashon Prus!!!
playstation plus is crazy good value, but you continue to not get it if that makes you feel better. changed my buying habits from about 2 games per month to about 1, that alone saves me hundreds of dollars per year. and I was already paying for xbl anyway, minus free games.
You know what saved me a bunch of money for (PC) games? Not buying a PS4.
I see they used different platforms but this is why I love having a PC as an option. I bought Alan Wake, GTA IV, metro, metro last light, Bioshock, Batman arkham city, batman arkham asylum and a few others for $5 or less on steam.
Sony fanboys on N4G are seriously comparing PS+ to Steam/Humble Bundle sales. Hilarious. Why am I NOT surprised?
Actually PS+ sales are just as awesome as Steams in all seriousness. Have you actually ever used PS+ before? Not saying Steams sales are not better overall, they are, but Steam is a PC based platform that clearly has a way larger library of games than any console would have which leads to better sales because of the bigger competition. Many of the very cheap sales on Steam are for very cheap games. Not saying those cheaper made games are bad either but they are on sale that low for a reason. I'll play any good game I like no matter what the budget was to make it, just saying PS+ is not nearly as bad you are making it sound. I have gotten so many good games dirt cheap on PS+, just look at the playstation blog and all the sales they have if you don't believe me. Not that I came in here to talk about PS+ but everyone had to brag about it.. It is people like that, giving it a bad perception when it actually is a really great service. Maybe you have tried PS+ but it wasn't for you, if the games and games on sale don't interest you I can't blame you for not liking it but to make it seem as if it is that far off from Steam or even Humble Bundles sales is not the truth.
Sony is just robbing you. PS+ is offering: +Online Multiplayer +Demos, Betas +Discounts +Cloud saves +Instant Game Collection Now Steam offers demos, multiplayer and cloud for free. Plus Steam's discount go higher then 75%, you will see 10%-90% discounts. There is no Instant Game Collection, but that thing is more of a long term demo, which lasts 1-3 months. You don't really own them, and for 10$ a month, i don't think that's such a good deal, especially compared to Humble Bundles, which mostly cost 6$.
@Daniel_Potter I feel like you have no idea what you are talking about. First ps+ is $50 for 12 months and thats if you don't get it on sale, clearly your $10 a month math is incorrect. PS+ allows me to play games I would never have given a chance to before. I do buy humble bundles and I do buy games during steam sales. Everyone here freaks about about not "owning" the games on ps+. The thing is everyone who has ps+ will most likely continue paying for it as it is required just like Live is. Tell me, how many games do you go back and replay years later? Chances are very few of them and if you love a game so much on ps+ you can wait a few years and get it for a couple of dollars. Ps+ allows you to play a variety of new games each month just for paying for online service. Can anyone give me the numbers on how many awesome games Live has gotten? If steam brought a $5 a month subscription like plus where they gave an instant game collection I guarantee plenty of people including me would purchase it. Ps+ offers way better games than humble bundle anyway, see those awesome tractor and semi simulators the other week? such an awesome game collection. Yes there are some good ones every now and then but usually its just a bunch of cheap indie games that have no budget and already cost only a few dollars to begin with. Just because some of you think you will go back and play every game you ever bought doesn't mean the rest of us want to and just because you don't like renting games doesn't make it a bad option for those who want to test a game first. Quit being such hard headed fools and realize there's a lot of people with their own opinions who find value in things you don't.
@GetPwneddd I can. No comparison really between games with gold and PS+. Even Xbox users know this. Xbox Live Games with Gold - http://www.reddit.com/r/xbo... PS+ Instant Game Collection - http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
So this guy clearly knows nothing about PS+ which was made very obvious when you claim it is $10 a month.. So thanks for answering my question indirectly and trying to lie at the same time, letting me know you have actually never used PS+. Sorry PS+ is not $120 a year.. So it is obvious you just like to talk shit about something you have never even used. Sure instead everyone disagrees with me, just believe the person more who literally just proved he has no idea what he is talking about. Lol game collection, long term demo's? Do you even know what the word demo means? Complete games are not demos.. A demo is a game that is not complete, therefor just a demonstration of what the game would be like to play.. Hence the word demo. So you are also saying Sony doesn't offer demo's for free? Okay... Again where you pulled that from is beyond me. All demo's on the Playstation store, including the PS4's store are just that completely free and you don't need PS+ either, you don't need it to play PS3 games or Vita games online as well. So that only applies to the PS4 requiring PS+ for multiplayer games. I tried to be super nice about it too, but good god your facts are way more off than I had originally thought. Sad to see anyone agree with people who are so misinformed.
Uhm? I didn't lie The subscription has 3 options to choose from pay 10$ for 1 month pay 18$ for 3 months pay 50$ for 12 months Ok, correction* It's a long term trial, that lasts 1-3 months Still, not worth it compared to 6$ Bundles ps: i own a PS3 myself, and at that time, free online was the only reason i chose it over 360 My only problem with PS4 was that it took stuff that were formerly free, and put them behind a paywall.That's why i didn't buy the PS4. The company that makes money with such cheap tricks isn't worth supporting. Now what you are saying is that Steam/Humble Bundle = PSN+ except that PSN+ asks for an entry fee to be that part of it. And their discounts go up only to -75%. Seriously, are you really that ignorant that you think that PSN+ is actually worth your money?
Wish I didn't wait till now to get Virtua Tennis 4 just a game I passed up, I wonder if anyone still plays it on PS Vita.
I did until a couple of months ago, it has quite a large following in China by the looks of things as whenever i played online i generally just played against them. It was pretty easy to find an online match though
Thanks for the info, good to know.
Article about buying 37 games for the price of one, Comments section on N4G over run by PC Elitist's crying out for attention again, why am i not surprised...
They must maintain some semblance of relevancy. Redefining and reframing the argument to suit their needs. Reminds me of Xbox fanboys, which is ironic, because a lot of Xbox fanboys suddenly become PC elitists when it's clear the Xbox is behind in a console debate. PlayStation Plus is just as viable an option for fulfilling the conditions set in the title as Humble Bundles are. But some have to add in some sort of technicalities so it can be discounted, which is pretty sad. @Bundi: You mean whenever Xbox fanboys come with the hyperbole that it's the greatest fps ever and anybody with any complaints is just jealous they can't play it "on their platform," as if people don't have 360s or PCs? People around here have been saying "PC and PS4 (and often Wii U) is the way to go" for quite some time now; why is it such a surprise that so many folks who also support the PS4 would say, "No, I don't need (or want) an XB1 to play this game. I've got a capable enough PC if I wanna play Titanfall." Or what? Is it unimaginable that folks that populate a gaming site would have gaming PCs?
You mean like ps fans who become pc takers whenever Titanfall is mentioned in a positive light?
Humble bundle for PC ps+ for playstation
