That's insane. I am running out of excuses to not get PS+

Man, it's worth it just for just cause 2 and saints row 2.

Don't get me wrong I'm not here to cast aspersions on what looks like good value, but isn't it slightly disingenuous to promote these games as free when you have to have a PSN+ sub to play them?

yeah saw it now as well. sure it's marketing which works like you see. people would never have played 80% of that because they don't care about most games and the few they are really interestet in cost only 5€ or so on ebay which they would really own then. (or they could get them in a rental shop for few euros). for people who have ps+ it is good but making an account only for that is money wasting. but "we give you for free" was always an excellent marketing trick i wonder why companies like sony/microsoft/nintendo don't use it more often because they will earn money with it and not lose money like some might think.

btw are you really stinky? haha



You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. My plus membership works out to $3.33 a month ($4.17 for a new member) . I get ALL those games for that price. Beats the living shit out of buying or renting. You can't buy even one of those at that price. You might be able to rent one for a week. And anyone saying they own them all is full of shit. I don't believe for a second anyone owns anything close to all those unless you buy every damn thing that releases. Also one of those games is a new release. The ps+ discounts alone cover the cost of my membership. It's just amazing to me that people don't see the value in ps+. There's four games on that list i've been on the fence for buying but never picked up. Phenomenal deal.


yes i know what i'm talking about. i and most others who did never play the games are not interested in most of these games. it's the same with some games i bought over steam. i bought them because i got them cheap but i will never play them because i don't care. and of all these "free" games now, only 3 games interest me a little bit. not very much because i would have bought or rent them in the past if i would really care about them but i would play them.

i'm a little bit interested in infamous 2 as example which i have to pay ~6-7€ on ebay here where i live for a used copy (better used than digital). but then i would OWN the game as long as i wish if i realy like it or i can sell it after 6 months to get almost the same back. which would at the end maybe cost me one time shipping cost to me and ebay charges. the shipping cost when i sell it would pay the buyer. i would maybe lose 2-3€ with my purchase. the same for the second game i would maybe play, just cause 2. but i calculate it like it should be calculated. if a game wasn't worth 7€ for me to own it over ebay, it has to be much less worth to me to own it only the time i pay for ps+. that means a game like infamous 2 is maybe worth 5€ for me to buy on ebay and much less as time limited digital version because i can't own it forever and i can't sell it anymore and it is only digital.

and like i said, that's marketing. sony or any other company knows that only people who would never have bought them otherwise (even when they say it, because there are always other new games which come first) with maybe a very few exeptions will get the games now. and only people who don't care for ps+ or don't care enough for ps+ will get it now.  like i said, people who are a fan of ps+ and pay for it regularly get a nice extra now but i would never purchase it now just for games i did never bought to play them as long as i pay for ps+ and when i played through the few games i care about i would stop paying for psn+ and my games would't be my games anymore...

it is just marketing and no samaritan act like some try to say. they try to get as many as possible to pay for psn+ and then anytime in the future when they have enough who pay for it regularly they will make it like microsoft or so for ps4 then and because people are used to play for psn then, they won't have a problem as they would have if they would never have paid for psn before.

if anyone really believes a billion dollar company is doing something to be nice sry but i have to say they only do it to get our money.

and yes, i have games of that list, darksiders and lara croft as example so calm down just because some see a better reason to just buy the few games used they really are interested in to own them forever as blu-ray if they want.

Can you subscribe for one month? or does it have to be three month or a year, also I checked that this morning and I couldn't find the free games.


Dude, You might want to subscribe for a lifetime if you want to keep those games forever. 

What do you mean I only have access to them as long as I'm subscribed?

hahaha are you actually serious or joking? I can't tell.

What? I never owned Playstation Plus before, I had no idea how it works.

Honestly I can't play most of thse games but I'll buy add them anyway for future play :) Getting Plus today.

Holy fucking shit! Definitely getting Plus now. A question though, is it a good idea to subscribe to the US plus if you live in Europe or should I just stick with the UK one? (12 vs. 10 games etc.). Shouldn't all games I get from the US store run on my European PS3?


Stick with the UK PSN+ Beside the 10 games (5 retail and 5 PSN games) you'll also get the 6-7 PSN games from last month. I think it's still this week that you can enjoy them. It's also easier with downloadable content etc. Unless you only use your US account off course for trophies etc.

I played some hours of Virtua Fighter 5 yesterday night... the game is good (first time I played some game of the series).

yeah i know, my 160 HDD won't have much space after this, if i keep getting free games I will definitely need a bigger one. I saw some tempting 320 GB 5400 rpm laptop drives at some nearby retail stores for $55. If you do get one, make sure it is 5400 RPM. 7200 rpm would overheat the ps3, even a slim ps3.



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

I've been rocking a 7200rpm drive for three years!



I have a 500GB Seagate Momentus XT in my PS3... 7200RPM with 32GB SSD (hibrid)... that's so fast for Gran Turismo 5.
