The fact that you need it for MP and with 360s emphasis on online proves thats simply not the case. Nice try.

PSN + is designed to "trap" you in keeping the service due to the "free" games that you only keep by staying. Live has been around since 2002....PSN Plus has been around for far less. It would make sense to give a progress report. apples and oranges.
WTF is wrong with you and this apples and oranges thing. Every god damn thread you say that shit at least ONCE! LET IT GO. Or at least switch it up. Peaches and Bananas next time.
