Why the old switcharoo on the Uncharted picture? I was about to save it because it was awesome, just to see that it was replaced with an old one. Did it contain new bits of info or something?

I’m rather new to buying things off the PSN, so this may be a silly question… If you download something, say a free Plus game, then delete it to make room for something else after a while, will you be able to download it again later for free still?

    For the Plus content, you can delete it and redownload it all you want, however you must be a Plus member. If your membership lapses, and you want to re-download playable content you received from Plus, you won’t be able to access it.

    PSN Games in general, purchased with your own cash, can be downloaded and redownloaded as much as you want!

Grace/Morgan … just like EyeSeeYew says, most of the EA games like “Fancy Pants Adventures” are already off-sale & back to regular price. Will they be coming back, or was that an announcement error here? Can you please append or correct this info?

Thanks!

    If you’re not a Plus member, you won’t be able to get into the Beta at this time. If you haven’t taken advantage of the 30 Days of Plus Access from Welcome Back, now would be a great time to do it before Welcome Back access stops on July 3rd. ; )

Can you guys at the PS Blog please specify that the inFAMOUS 2 beta voucher is also early access? it can be confusing for us beta voucher owners. if it’s not the same date, please let me know “)

I just noticed after looking at the services… that I was not granted the extra three months when the plus program started …. I am also missing the extra months from the outage… Is there a number I can call to have this looked at?

My plus is listed as starting June 28 2010..

I was curious as to when it re-upped at any rate.

+ Fredendil on June 22nd, 2011 at 11:43 pm said:

Quick question: If i get a free PS+ subscription form the welcome back program on exactly July 3rd, will it last until August 3rd (one month)? I was wondering because i haven’t gotten it yet and i was waiting until the last day to see if i could take advantage of whatever interesting discounts July might bring.

Could anyone help me out with that little piece of info? Thank you.

Oh, a 2nd question: how long will the uncharted mp beta last? Thanks.

    + Morgan Haro on June 23rd, 2011 at 10:00 am said:

    Yes, the 30 Days of Plus Access starts when you activate it. It could be July 2nd, and it would be active for 30 days from that point.


115

+ AizawaYuuichi on June 23rd, 2011 at 12:31 am said:

@Ammers10 and PainOfSarrow: Once you download a game, it’s entered in your Download History. It doesn’t matter how many times you download it. However, you can only activate your PSN ID on 5 systems. That’s where the 5 comes from. If you really wanted, you could download a game and delete it, and do that over and over and over, on a single system, and it would never stop you. It’d be a waste of bandwidth and time, but you could if you really wanted.

As for the UC3 beta, my god people, don’t you read? There have been multiple posts about the Beta saying it goes live for ALL PS+ ACCOUNTS ON JUNE 28TH! It doesn’t matter if you’re a paid subscriber or a free subscriber. And there was already an answer on a previous post, giving an official “YES” that free Plus-ers get the early beta access. And the inFAMOUS 2 code was to get into the early access on June 28th along with PS+, but now that everyone has +, the codes are pretty much useless, unless you redeemed your 30 days free as soon as you could, in which case, you might be locked out of the Beta between July 3rd and 5th, when it goes live to the public. In which case, you should use the code to make sure you don’t get locked out for that period.

From the April 13 Blog Post:
“we’ve secured a deal with Ubisoft to offer all Plus subscribers 20% discounts on the games Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes (available now), Outland (coming April 26), and Beyond Good and Evil (coming this May). ”

If you’re not going to honour the discounts for Outland and Beyond Good and Evil previously promised to PS+ subscribers, I’d suggest adding a little disclaimer to all of these PS+ posts that all content is subject to change without notice. Not very classy, but at least subscribers would be warned.

Hey, MORGAN, thanks for answering my question a hundred posts ago. I gave my code from inFamous to somebody who read that. I forgot that we all get it anyway due to Plus. I wish I could give that access away, too, since I don’t want to get gang-banged in multiplayer.
