What Happens When PlayStation Plus Games Expire?

Joystiq: "In about a month, people who purchased a 3-month subscription to PlayStation Plus will be faced with one crucial question. What happens to my games when my subscription ends? Joystiq had access to a press-only 1 month trial, and recently found out the answer. Sony's premium online subscription service has offered a number of "free" games -- full PSN games, like WipEout HD and Critter Crunch, and a variety of Minis and PSone classics. However, these titles were all made available with a caveat: they'd remain accessible for as long as your subscription remained active."

Some content from my PS+ say expires next year, other stuff doesn't have an expiration date. Let's wait until some site let's their account suspend and find out what you keep and what is on hold until your account reactivates.

Also, you don't lose discounted content.

"if you got it for free then whats the problem?"

If that's the case, you are just renting the games! As long as you're willing to pay, you can pay! So technically, they aren't free!

That's like someone saying if you get a netflix subscription, you rent movies through mail, and watch them online for free! But if you stop paying the subscription, you can't do either!

To me, free means, it's yours, you can have it, do whatever you want with it! Not it's yours, have fun, but keep paying me so you can keep it!

It doesn't suck if you pay attention to what the conditions were.

Like any other game that you complete, jump to the next one.
