I just bought another year of plus and in the services list it says next renewal 6/12/2013 but all my games say they expire in 5 days whats going on here ?


+ DrcRcp on June 6th, 2012 at 4:52 pm said:

When is the latest time or last day I can download these 12 games? Moderator please respond.


+ QPCloudy on June 6th, 2012 at 4:56 pm said:

@DrnRcp, they will be available at least for one month. I have heard some say 16 weeks.


+ DelMurice on June 6th, 2012 at 5:02 pm said:

Sigh… downloading 24 hours straight and I managed to only get 132megs…. Comcast is garbage as far as being an internet provider. At this rate, it will take two weeks just to get the smallest game up there.

I wonder how comcast defines Broadband?

I know they ripped people off selling digital set top boxes, and it turned out figital doesn’t mean HD, but they woudln’t elaborate on that. It could be just crummy service for us people out in the country. But they should live up to what they are claiming to sell.

Need a new hard drive to fit all those games. I was always on the fence on PS plus but this swayed me.


+ DelMurice on June 6th, 2012 at 7:18 pm said:

yeah as long as you had “purchased it” (you click download or at to your basket without downloading it) you can use it again when you get plus established again. You just can’t access games you missed while not with plus.


+ Senjutsu_Dav on June 6th, 2012 at 7:43 pm said:

WHAAAATTTT???? All of that for free? How is that even possible? Really, I wonder I you do your money…

Well, I’m already PS+ member (and I already bought it till end of 2013) so I’m simply getting those as a bonus, a really big bonus!! My god, I think I’ll have to check if I can download all of them under my bandwidh cap haha. In the worst case scenario I’ll have to start and stop the download to finish it next month. I also wonder about the space left in my HDD, ouch!

Now I’m happy I have 250GB! My god, so much free stuff. I can’t understand those who don’t wanna be PS+ members at all.


+ Senjutsu_Dav on June 6th, 2012 at 7:47 pm said:

@551: Ouch, I download 1.8MB/s, so around a gig in 9 minutes, for about 50$/month. My friends got 60MB/s for around 70$/month.

Find another ISP.


+ WhiteCurtis on June 6th, 2012 at 7:57 pm said:

I assume I will have to actually download all these games. How much memory is this gonna leave me after I download even half the games?


+ DelMurice on June 6th, 2012 at 8:03 pm said:


I’m supposed to get 1.6mb/s but you know these small town ISP’s never can come close to what they promise. The other ISP is a wireless service that’s 265kb/s which won’t do at all, there’s no G3, or G4 out here.

But supposedly I’m paying for broadband, I should at least get something that lives up to that .I need to move, that’s what I need to do .


+ TheUnknownFaith on June 6th, 2012 at 8:09 pm said:

So if we download these games today with our playstation membership and our Playstation plus runs out next week, we wont be able to have the full game anymore?


+ VitamiN-PP on June 6th, 2012 at 8:19 pm said:

#3 #17 # 19 # 27 just to name a few. But I bet there are a lot more people like us who just brought those games the day before they went for free! I’ve been a plus member for about 3 months, and I do like plus members’ free deal every month, and this ultimate free game deal could the best ever. BUT why did SONY charge us something which would be free in no time? Does SONY really want to win E3 soooooo bad that some guy figured out this ‘SMART’ idea? Or does SONY just wanna steal some money!


+ Diablosbomb on June 6th, 2012 at 9:04 pm said:

So, if I “buy” Saints Row 2 with this collection thing. I download it, play it and remove it to make room for something else. Then it gets taken out of the collection, will I still have access to re-download it and continue playing it since I was a PS+ member when it was in the collection or is it, too bad shouldn’t have uninstalled it. Basically what I am asking is, should I get a much much bigger HDD for my PS3 so I don’t have to remove games?


+ joeyrpger on June 6th, 2012 at 10:00 pm said:

I have to admit, I really like this, I was never quite as excited about a Playstation update like this since the days classic SquareEnix games were being put up. I downloaded some of these Free game for us PS+ users and some of the things that bother me is the fact the some of these games have the word Digital put after their title. Like “Little Big Planet 2 Digital Version” or “Infamous 2 Digital”. Makes it feel quite inferior when digital games are much more reliable. I would rather this be changed, it’s something that is a bit of a nuisance to me. Otherwise, I am enjoying the games and can’t wait to see what else is in store, just make sure you give us some hidden gems among the blockbuster games, ok?


+ DelMurice on June 6th, 2012 at 11:18 pm said:


All “Full digital download” means is that it was previously a disc based game. Sony has never offered stripped down versions of the games to plus members. All the content and trophies are all there. Actually we see more as plus members, like early releases and closed beta’s (and even gifts at release time for beta testing).
Something that just blows my mind, is Sony gave out about 5500 one year subscriptions to people who attended the press conference on Monday. And free games just this month alone totalled up to be about $200. That’s over a million dollars totaled up, and that’s just for this month, they all got 1 year of free plus. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a company promotion in the history of gaming even come close to this. What makes it more amazing, is it comes during a reccession when people could appreciate it even more.


+ thatguyrome on June 6th, 2012 at 11:49 pm said:

Well, this just gave me 12 FANTASTIC reasons to re-subscribe to Playstation Plus. Bravo Sony. THAT’S how you pull in an audience!


+ lX_XScorpionX_Xl on June 7th, 2012 at 12:58 am said:

how many days away those games?


+ viceforce on June 7th, 2012 at 1:35 am said:

I just downloaded 10 of these games(All ready have retail inFAMOUS 2 and Ultimate Edition Just Cause 2). Now correct me if I’m wrong but are you saying we’re going to get even more games next week!? Will some of them be free?


+ usboynevs on June 7th, 2012 at 7:14 am said:

This is the first time I’ll comment here just because you’ve made the PS Plus subscription worth it. I actually just own 1 of these 12 games.


+ intrigue169 on June 7th, 2012 at 7:32 am said:

these games are not free for life. Every free game that I have downloaded has an experation date usually about a year later. am I the only one who has noticed that. Not that I’m complaining, because very few games I will not play a year after buying with some exceptions like, Max Payne, Halo, and Supper Mario Brothers which are all games I play at least every other year.


+ msmont on June 7th, 2012 at 8:01 am said:

@ viceforce. The rotation of PS+ games was mostly monthly previous to this E3. Every week they might have a new mini and every two weeks they would sometimes add another psn game, but, mostly the new content came on the first Tuesday of every month. From what I understand in the post E3 world, 2 of these games are going to be rotating in every month. Every quarter they are going to rotate in some others as well and even more yearly.


+ windsr on June 7th, 2012 at 9:17 am said:

Glad I was able to install a 500GB drive in my PS3. This definitely makes PLUS worth every penny.


+ guglikMIX on June 7th, 2012 at 10:39 am said:

Nice….so many cool free games to download !! Thanks alot :)


+ guglikMIX on June 7th, 2012 at 10:45 am said:

At least i must say i love you Sony !


+ freakma- on June 7th, 2012 at 3:42 pm said:

Currently downloading :D Very Very NICE !!!


+ KillzoneXZR on June 7th, 2012 at 7:33 pm said:

$60 subscription on Xbox: You get to play online and talk to friends
$50 PS3 subscription, you get $260 worth of free games.

Thanks for this!


+ marfox on June 7th, 2012 at 7:52 pm said:

Not sure why but when I try to Download Infamous 2 it stops at 84% I tried Ratchet and Clank but it did the same. I have enough room on my PS3 (120gb) idk if this has happen to anyone else or is it just me. Help? Plz?


+ pipeline100 on June 7th, 2012 at 8:05 pm said:

Don’t forget your faithful PSP or PSP Vita members. I don’t see much as far as free games or add ons for us!


+ pipeline100 on June 7th, 2012 at 9:47 pm said:

I noticed that Playstation plus is mainly for PS3 users as I joined because I own 2 psps and a PSP vita. So far this isn’t worth as much. I posted a comment to “not forget your loyal psp and PSP vita owners” and for some reason it disappeared? Again please don’t forget us or I may not renew next time. Just FYI.


+ owits on June 7th, 2012 at 9:57 pm said:

How come we don’t have these games for Asia?


+ pipeline100 on June 7th, 2012 at 10:00 pm said:

disregard the comment about ‘it disappearing” apparently it is posted as comment 575 the oldest comments get posted on the main page. However my other comments still stand. Please make Playstation Plus a plus for all members. PSP, PSP Vita and PS3 owners.

cool ……


+ PICK34 on June 8th, 2012 at 3:05 am said:

Playstation plus is awesome, is there a list anywhere that has everything offered since the beginning?


+ l-sham3on on June 8th, 2012 at 3:49 am said:

QUESTION! sooo is there only 12 free ps3 games each month? are the psone games for free or not?


+ WitchyRein on June 8th, 2012 at 5:22 am said:

this is sooo awesome!!! i’m definitely getting the 1 year subscription , tank you SONY :)


+ WitchyRein on June 8th, 2012 at 5:23 am said:

+ XSGranted on June 8th, 2012 at 10:18 am said:

So wait until what date are these available cuz i can’t renew my PSPlus right away! T__T I DUN WANNA MISS OUT!!


+ Kojima-Yoshiyuki on June 8th, 2012 at 10:20 am said:

Ok Ive decided to give it a whirl, hopefully the games will include something I really want next month like chime, crystal defenders, journey, and some of the awesome psone classics like metal gear or the final fantasies.

only thing im not sure of so far is the 150 mb limit on the cloud saves and it seems like there is no simple way to back up all of your saves, and that was one of the things Ive wanted.


+ XSGranted on June 8th, 2012 at 10:43 am said:

Are these like the European ones and will be available till July or is this like a 2 week thing??


+ jfv31929 on June 8th, 2012 at 10:58 am said:

I Was Wondering if i get PS+ and download these games will i have them forever or just until my PS+ Expires?


+ leonardolimaog on June 8th, 2012 at 11:01 am said:

quanto tempo fica os jogos grátis?


+ DCGMoo on June 8th, 2012 at 12:56 pm said:


Any games that you spend any money on at all (even if it’s a discount, as long as you spend at least a penny) will be yours forever.

Any games that you get totally FREE (like these) can only be played while you’re a PS+ member. If your membership expires, the games won’t load until you resubscribe.

It’s a fair hook for Sony, since you can’t watch Netflix movies or Hulu+ shows without a membership either. But I’ll be honest… PS+ was worth keeping for me, even before these new games hit. I downloaded multiple games that I was interested in per month for free in the last few months.


+ lordsofhoth on June 8th, 2012 at 6:04 pm said:

Curious to see if anyone else had this problem. I downloaded the Infamous 2 game, but the game says its only the 60 minute trial and expires at the end of the month. I am a PS+ member and my membership doesnt expire for a year and a half. Is there an error somewhere or is this correct? Thanks


+ Bell-21- on June 8th, 2012 at 6:21 pm said:

Just bought Ps Plus this is what im talking about thanks Sony Playstation!


+ RainbowFace26 on June 8th, 2012 at 6:44 pm said:

Kind of messed up hoe infamous has an experation date while space marine doesn’t.


+ Wickemic on June 8th, 2012 at 7:20 pm said:

Words can’t express how awesome this is. You have made a lifelong customer even more happy than you could possible imagine.


+ lonewhitewolf1 on June 8th, 2012 at 8:06 pm said:

question, i got the three month subscription for the games (and a few other things) so that means that if i dont pay the next time i will have to pay for the games if i want to continue to have them? also thank you sony for giving me a reason to actually pay for a plus membership, free games and discounts? im so in. better than microsoft, just watch movies and stuff lol
