Couple questions here. I activated the PS+ the second it was available. This will get me access to the UC3 beta early, I know, but my Plus will expire on July 3rd. Will I still have access to the beta on July 4th?

Another question, ever since I got the free PS+, I haven’t had to pay sales tax on anything bought in the Playstation Store. Is this a benefit of Plus or is sales tax something you guys just threw away?

    Although you’ll be able to download the Beta on its release date from the Store, you won’t be able to access it without the Plus membership tied to your account. You can always add more time to your subscription (3month or 1 year) at any time to ensure you don’t miss it. As for sales tax stuff, I’m no expert on that one, but if it works out for you, enjoy!

Hey guys, the Playstation Plus Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Early Access Beta is only for people who actually bought Playstation Plus, not for people who have the free trial…. I have one Beta Code from inFAMOUS 2, and another from paying for PS+, so i’m doing a giveaway on Youtube that you can find here:

    Sorry friend, that’s not correct information. ANYone who has PlayStation Plus access whether it’s from the Welcome Back package, or from a regular subscription purchase, will be able to access the UC3 Beta; as long as their Plus membership is active.

Much better update – Bomberman Ultra, MediEvil and Monstar w/ a dynamic clock theme. It’s all the stuff we’re supposed to get w/ Plus. Sony must want those free 30 dayer’s to pony up $50 and stick around. Fine by me.

thanks for all the feedback Morgan

+ johnnyp70 on June 24th, 2011 at 1:51 pm said:

I really wish people would read the comments/replies in regards to the UC3 beta. Plus is Plus as it pertains to this. Also, those who are complaining about the Infamous 2 code being “useless”, how about these 2 points:

1. If you jumped right in to the plus “Welcome Back” on 6/3, and want the UC3 beta, yes it will expire on 7/3 BUT if you have the code from infamous 2, can’t you just re-download with that, and pick it back up?
2. Don’t you think when they packaged Infamous 2, they really didn’t expect to have to go until 6/3 before they offered the “Welcome Back” program. Duh…

Please stop whining about FREE stuff!

Morgan,

What happened to all the items that PLUS members were to get before and during the time that the outage was in effect. Games and content where announced and we never say most of it at all. There was supposed to be updates to the store in general bi-weekly, which only happened once. Playstation Plus content has been quite sub-par the last month, considering there is over a month of content that just vanished. I’m sure you can see why people are upset, one; nobody at Sony answers their questions or acknowledges this vanishing content, and two; the content that has been released is pretty much discounts, just a way to make money on top of money Sony receives from Plus memberships…nothing free…just a few cents off………..

So we basically get a repeat of a prior sale (which just happened) after a pathetic week of sale offerings (i.e. this week) ?? Good grief. Hope this gets better after the world isn’t part of the program, but it certainly was rolling downhill fast before the outage.

HEY MORGAN, how about not picking and choosing who you answer to. Many questions about where’s the content that was posted on this here blog of Sony’s for Plus members, but have not been offered to date.
—–> Why are these questions being avoided??

And for the record, I have no interest in the games that are in question, but when a Plus customer asks a question about content, then you answer posts before and after them, it just shows me a blatant disregard for a paying customer to the service with a very legitimate question.

I cant speak for the old classic games though i never been a fan of old games esp not the one’s i played as a kid but besides that its cool.Wait till around the first week of august i bet it will be plenty of good games that get released.

I dont understand why the mod only answers certain questions. Its almost as if we are dealing with a politician.

many have asked about the stuff that is missing, from before. Any answers, no.

Someone says the mod looks like a video game character, and guess what. instant response.

So I guess we have to flatter the mod to get a real answer?
