How much value do you get out of your game service subscriptions?

PS+ wins because more consoles get the benefit, if based on value alone.

Takwin1271d ago

I love at least one game a month, and usually like 1-2 more between the PS4 and PS3.

This might be the last year for the PS3 on PS+ but I'll enjoy it as long as it lasts.

MRMagoo1231271d ago

Yeh ps+ is def the best when it comes to the free games.

Army_of_Darkness1271d ago

I honestly think of ps+ monthly free games as a bonus more than anything... What amazes me the most that I look forward too are the ps+ weekend flash deals! :-D outstanding prices for average too excellent games.

ic3fir31271d ago (Edited 1271d ago )

Yes, the plus has had better games, but I paid 30€ per year of xbox live gold, and plus paid 50€

3 years of live gold €90
3 years of psn plus €150

spare €60 in three years, and have equal monthly free games, and weekly discounts also.

Transporter471271d ago

In the U.S. both retail at:
Ps+ = 49.99
XBL = 59.99

You can of course get both for 30 dollars if you pay attention for deals. Your argument is invalid.

ic3fir31271d ago (Edited 1271d ago )

deals? is all the time, is fixed price, I buy €32 1year gold to during 7Years and i never paid more

rdgneoz31271d ago

Yep, with deals you can generally get either one for $30 to $40. Black Friday is always a nice time for discounts on them.

DemonChicken1271d ago (Edited 1271d ago )

Your either trolling or not very good at things that come to your wallet.

Why would you buy one thing cheaper than the other? And yes you do not have to get PS+ at full price, as with XBL there are places that sell PS+ at a discounted price.

I can get GWG for £25 a year, I always have to pay full price for PS


I mean buying with codes of course.

I have the games for the most part. It's the superior service Xbox Gold delivers.

There really is no comparison as evident by the link above, Microsoft is halfassing this program and only doing it so they can match a bullet point that plus offers.

S2Killinit1271d ago (Edited 1271d ago )

yup. Its not even close. Nothing against XBL but gotta give credit where it is due and PSN really does take the cake in value.

Corpser1271d ago

How many would subscribe if online mp doesn't requires them, yeah exactly

KiwiViper851271d ago (Edited 1271d ago )

But online multiplayer isn't free anymore.

A better question would be, How many people would subscribe if there were no free games?

Answer: Everyone

aquamala1271d ago

the only platforms you need to pay to play online are 360,XB1, PS4. they are the exception, not the norm.

KiwiViper851271d ago

The topic is PS+ vs XboxLive.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1271d ago

I wouldn't pay for it if PS Plus didn't offer the games across 3 systems. The last game where I used multiplayer was Destiny and I haven't played it since November.

joeorc1271d ago

Not completely true, there is free. 2 Play games on the PS4 that has online free multiplayer, and there is free 2 play games also on the xbox one. So not completely true of "no free online Multiplayer gaming" yes it would . limit You to free 2 play games if you want multiplayer without require of a subscription, but there. Is some good free 2 play online multiplayer gaming for the ps4 right now. With no online sub required other than your cost in iSP

I dont really play multiplayer games and I'm subscribed to plus. I really enjoy the plus games.

UltraNova1271d ago

Same here, although I do play some co-op from here and there. Diablo can mess with your head...
