PS PLUS - RUNS OUT - STILL PLAY GAMES? Question

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS PLUS - RUNS OUT - STILL PLAY GAMES? Question

What will happen to ps+ in the next years with PS3? I mean at some time the support for PS3 will fade so new games that get added will also fade out or it will only get old and/or crappy games but if you quit ps+ your games will also disappear. I think at some point it won't be worth the money but you have to pay to keep the games.
Are there any details how Sony will solve this?

Hack your PS3 and games you got free through PS+ will be playable whether they expired or not.

I certainly do believe publishers will try to make you buy their games twice. Or you could keep playing them on the platform you purchased them on.

Also, if you could access your download history on Gaikai I'm imagine Sony would have boasted about it.

Never thought of that.

I've always heard that if you renew your subscription, you get access to things you've downloaded previously.

That true!

OT : Like other people said there's a hidden (timer) clock on your PS3 to avoid you cheating, once I tried it and it didn't work.

I think what I've already downloaded will still be available to me through Gaikai. They've already confirmed that you'll be able to play PS3 games through Gaikai. 

Correction, you hope. But I don't see that happening.

Being able to play PS3 games on Gaikai and having access to your PSN download history on Gaikai is something completely different.

And Gaikai will cover both consoles as well, on a single console. There is no reason why they wouldn't do this. This would make people more inclined to upgrade from their PS3s.

Dude, the issue is the publishers.

Perhaps Sony would gladly give you access to your download history to sell more consoles. But are the publishers okay with that? I doubt it.

When you download something from PS+ a timer is attached, doesn't matter if you disconnect from the internet, that timer and license is stored on the PS3. When it expires, it expires.

As to playing PS+ offline, this is fine as long as your subscription has not expired.

I don't know what you mean by this. I have games installed that i got for free with PS Plus that i downloaded 2-3 years ago and they still work. Some even kept working for a while after my subscription expired.


No they didn't.  If you add days to a subscription while you have an existing one then games downloaded prior to the added days may say 'expired' when they reach the original date (before added days), but playing them again will make the display change to real days remaining.

If a subscription expires for real then it expires and no games will work.

He's actually right!! I've been a PS+ since day 1 and at one time I forgot to re-sub (got reminded by starting PS+ games and got noticified that it expired) but there was actually 2 or 3 games (mainly PSN titles) that still works!!

I know it weird...

No your PSN info is stored in Sony's servers.


Exactly. There's this "inner clock" whenever you're connected to the server. You just can't cheat like that.


No, the time is actually set within the console but It doesn't work by date alone, it works by how many days there are left. This works independant of the internal clock so even if you changed that, it wouldn't stop the clock counting down.

You do not need to be connected to the internet to play PS+ games.

Valid points? I'm not going to argue with you.  I don't know Sony's official postion on the issue nor do I know how publishers feel about it and neither do you. Until Sony comfirms what the purpose of gaikai is, your guesses are no more reasonable than mine- I could just as easily say, I see no valid points made by this response. :)
