yeah i've been waiting on Zen pinball.....plus the Move add-on for bowling is great too. but does that mean u have to pay for the Move add-on if ur not a plus subscriber??? that would suck
Real Talk! Thats all I want
Zen pinball is something i've been wanting to check out and now I will.
I still haven't subscribed though since every free game they've given out so far I already own. But thats quickly coming to an end, and I'll probably start my subscription in a month or two, when hopefully some betas start I have to admit though, they've given out some great content and is definitely worth $50
I already bought Zen Pinball :(
Yeah, me too and Wipeout HD and Critter Crunch... but I still like getting something shiny and new to download. Really digging the Warhawk Dynamic theme and the Move compatibility for High Velocity Bowling will give me something to play with the Move besides Sports Champions.
Ya me too :( The only free game(besides the minis) that I didn't own was Wipeout HD. This really sucks!
the longer u have ps+ , the more your rewarded
Exactly! You read my mind completely, it's just a shame that some people seem to think PS+ is supposed to give you everything at once otherwise it's a failure.
No people just think their supposed to give you actually good stuff. sadly thats not happening Im a member and its pretty sad what their offering
great stuff but here i thought with Plus service you are gareenteed beta access and now i find out it is selected Plus members, i mean shouldn't all plus members have the same benifits? o well there still some good stuff to nab
Well... the reason betas have limited numbers is because of the servers. If they get too much people in, the servers are gonna crash.
Yeah there probably is around atleast a million + subscribers, don't most closed betas only take 10k people at first?
They don't need every PS+ member to test the game. It's the dev's choice.
"Finally, a select number of PlayStation Plus subscribers will be returning to Mars for some vehicular combat in the Red Faction Battlegrounds beta. Select users will be notified via an XMB message and email." WTF I thought they said by signing up for PS+ you get exclusive beta access, not exclusive chance to have beta access. This is the only thing that really made me want to get PS+, but if they are going to pull that crap I'll keep my $50.
Seriously, PS+ is sad.
if you had bothered to read the comments section, your complaint was already answered directly: "Loserkid | September 8th, 2010 at 5:05 pm Pretty good… I’m a bit concerned with the Beta thing tho.. select number? Doesn’t say how many will have access to it.. I’m looking forward to many of the coming comments on this… Grace Chen | September 8th, 2010 at 6:23 pm Sizes of betas vary for different reasons, based on what the developer needs. There are sometimes certain criteria that need to be met, which leads to limited numbers." So if the number of people allowed in a certain beta are limited, it's not necessarily sony's fault, it could be the developer.
and they said chance to get into betas not guarantee, plus if there are a 5 million subscribers, you really think they will give 5 million people access to each beta, not viable most times.
Why are you guys wasting your breath with trolls?
...you get the free stuff for being a plus member, but if you quit plus you lose your rights to the games? If so, that ****ing blows.
basically yea...if you leave, you lose the rights to the free games you download. They've got some ok deals going on there but the part about a chance at the beta tells me I don't want it. If I got guaranteed access to betas, then I might bite but I'm not paying 60 bucks for a chance
The reason you only get a "chance" at the beta is because there are much fewer beta slots open for this particular game than there are PS+ subscribers. Its up to the devs how many people they want/need in their betas. Sony has no say in it.
O no not this bs statement again Try getting rental games fro Gamefly when you end your subscription or Movies streaming fro Netflix for that matter. What is so hard for people to understand that ps+ is an annually renewed membership that gains you access to games and features on a monthly basis. End your membership and your access ends like pretty much every other membership in any walk of life.
Cuboid will be free within 6 months. First a little discount and now 50%.... I have a feeling people on the fence will start to get gun shy buying something with a discount. I wonder how Sony will handle this situation. The two week update helps but they may need to go futher out.
Europe gives 1 month notice, which is nice. :)
damn Sony only a selected few members will have access too the beta wowwww, here I thought ps plus members was more likely too get into betas.
"here I thought ps plus members was more likely too get into betas. " Yeah. Thats exactly what it is. If you don't have plus, you probably have no chance to get into the beta. Plus members have a chance. I don't see the problem.
yeah it raises the chance for me to get into betas. Before it was a 1 in 20 million now its closer to one in 2-5 million
And yet people still fucking complain WAH WAH WAH WAH WAHFUCKING WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHH Shut up already you whiny bitches.
Wow, really? Red Faction Battlegrounds beta access? Because everyone has been screaming for that, opposed to something like.. I don't know, Killzone 3 beta access, right? And why is it that only a select few users get into these betas? Completely stupid, if you ask me. However, I am looking forward to Zen Pinball. I've always wanted to play that.
I have Zen pinball already but thats it so this is a great update for me, gonna grab savage moon for sure, Also has anyone tried out the ghost of Sparta Demo, I had a blast playing it, and the graphics were very orgasmic in comparsion to chains of olympus. I've been very satisfied with plus so far.
I didn't even see Savage Moon was 50% off. Very nice, i'll be picking that one up as well. I LOVED the Ghost of Sparta demo. Really hoping they have a good story for it, as the one in God of War 3 was lacking to me. Maybe a bit longer then Chains of Olympus too.
THIS SELECT BETA USERS THING IS TOTAL BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHH that's 2 things / 3 things they already screwed up 1. dead nation beta giving it out to tons of randoms and not ps+ 2. god of war ghost of sparta throw out to tons of semi-randoms a WEEK before "exclusive" ps+ access and maybe 3. lbp2 beta to just a few where no ps+ is necessary WHAT IS THIS BS!!!!!!!! CLASS ACTION NOWWWWOWOWOOWOWOWOWOOWOW :P
really? sue them for that? have fun winning!
You people need to get a clue. Its "select" because the number of PS+ subscribers far outnumbers the number of beta slots available for this particular game. You guys act like they should just create betas for every PS+ member. The fact is they may only need 100 people for this beta. They could just say screw it and not let any PS+ members in it. I say just be happy you get a chane at all.
after my ps+ expires iam not making the same mistake and repay for it so far its BS oh yeah guaranteed beta acces ? there is lbp2, dead nation , pes2011 beta(WAS) and none of them ps+ got them what are we paying for ? lame ass games and add ons that i already have its useless.
I made it in the Dead Nation beta but even still I don't think I'll be renewing at this point. Feels like a coupon service and place where they throw all the crap that doesn't sell. But then look at interrergator's comment. He is enjoying it and getting his money worth so it's not a bad deal for everyone.
Because that's exactly what the purpose of it.. Which is, that it is precisely like a coupon service...
WICKED syphon filter 3 red faction beta WOW dont have zen pinball yet so yay for me and soldier discount wicked update
looking forward to zen pinball, other than already owning critter crunch, I'm liking the games they're giving.
Wipeout HD ($0 - already had) Zen Pinball ($10) Sam and Max whole season ($10 x 5) (europe btw) I'm already balanced at 3 months in. I'm gonna be sitting pretty by 12 months.
I'm so glad I got PS+ when it included the free extra months. I have already spent over 15 hours on free content, and have a beautiful dynamic theme.
pretty good,.. Must be a godsend to newer Ps3 users,.. you really get a lot of great things 4 free,.. or discounted ,..
its pretty good pinball simulater, has multiplayer scoreboards so it can be somewhat competitive.
im not renewing my xbl until gears 3 comes out until then ill be enjoying all the free trophies i can get with ps +
I love getting new things to download every month. Its really nice because I am low on cash because of all pre-orders I have coming in the next few months. Its nice getting to play a new game every couple weeks. This is really helping me to fill up my 16GB PSPgo with minis and PS1 classics. I have played them all and they are all pretty good so far.
im not bashing psn+.. its just that most of the content they are releasing that is free i already own. I will gladly fork over 50 with confirmation of betas, and new games which i dont own.
