It’s not really free if you have to pay a monthly fee just to keep them. Better off paying 20 – 40 dollars for the actual disc to have forever.


213

+ macrocosmTHEend on June 5th, 2012 at 10:06 am said:

@ 209 – Mcgnnis

Sadly I think it was just a rumor, but it was a possibility because they did have Diablo 1 for PlayStation 1.

I wish it was on PlayStation 3.

+ OneMoreVillain on June 5th, 2012 at 10:06 am said:

The EU.Blog has a lot more information on this if anyone is interested, check out over there.

No more ps1 classics and no ps2 classics for plus now. No more mini’s. No more exclusive free game each month. We still get themes and avatars. I guess it is a fair trade up though.

As much as this “free” content is great, I hope this is a sign of some jaw dropping discounts to come.

I think we can all agree though, We got some gaming to do.

Ok Sony, you guys have never let me down, and I mean never! But this….this is mind-blowing. And I was literally crying tears of joy when I only thought inFAMOUS 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, and Saints Row 2 were going to be the only ones and the only one I didn’t have was Saints Row 2. You guys just really keep bringing me more, and now I really can’t ask for much more. I have been a bit worried on how I was going to balance my PS Vita and PS3 games, as well as DLC and other subscription services such as BATTLEFIELD Premium and Call of Duty: Elite. I really just gotta say thank you and you guys are the greatest company in the world period! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

I appreciate the new games but I want to complain that 150MB of cloud storage is not enough. I can’t use this feature cause it’s been all filled up since day 1.

+ bassec on June 5th, 2012 at 10:16 am said:

Hi there – I am currently thinking about subbing to PS+ for these games.

However, I am pretty confused. I have seen answers saying this service is like Netflix in that your subscription must be current to play the games. I understand that. What I don’t understand is the rotation of games? The ENTIRE collection is open the second you join Netflix — there is no rotation.

If I join Netflix 6 months from today, all of the titles currently available now would be available then.

If I join PS+ 6 months from today, am I correct in that inFamous 2 would not be available to me?

Is it same to call this service almost a ‘claim’ service in that I have to ‘claim’ inFamous 2 before it rotates out, but then after I’ve claimed it, I have it to use/redownload as long as I want?

    + Morgan Haro on June 12th, 2012 at 3:45 pm said:

    you have the right idea. Yes, we make the comparison to Netflix to paint the picture, but since games are fundamentally different from movies, content will be rotated more frequently then a movie dropping from Netflix.

Mother of updates. Something tells me, its going to take a while to download all thats games


227

+ OneMoreVillain on June 5th, 2012 at 10:21 am said:

@225 Yes according to the EU site, that is exactly how it will work, much like anything currently downloaded for free using the plus feature. After the game is gone, you will still have access to it as long as you are a member of playstation plus. Even if you lose your membership you still have the game, you just wont be able to access it until you resubscribe to plus.

Thanks Sony for All The Free Games On Plus Its A Great Deal To Try Them Out 2 See If We Like The Games Instead Of Having to buy them and find out we dont like them and not getting your money Back Great Job Sony Im Impressed With All You Do

Sony, HAVE YOU GONE INSANE? So for less than the price of one new release, I get a continuous supply of amazing games (including multiple AAA titles) for a year? This is simply incredible, but I don’t know how you are going to make money on it!

How long will these tittle be up. Before you pull it down?

+ erichoya on June 5th, 2012 at 10:27 am said:

Bassec, basically acquring all of these games through PS plus is a sort of pseudo purchase. You’ll buy the item for free and it will show up in your acquired games catalog, with the only caveat being that you can use the game only while still being a ps plus member. If you lapse and rejoin, your previous “purchases” will become available to you again.

The new system is going to rotate titles in and out so if you don’t acquire infamous 2 today and it rotates out, you would not be able to join in six months and download it (unless of course it rotated back in). It’s essentially the same as it’s been currently for ps plus members except the time window has been slightly extended from the one month that has been the norm. You can build up quite the collection over time and they act just like purchased games (as long as you retain your plus membership)

+ TheTrainJob on June 5th, 2012 at 10:37 am said:

@everyone, A few tips,

1. If you need to redownload something and can’t find it in your download list, browse the store to where the item is and you can download it from there.

2. These PS+blog updates usually precede the actual store updates. Stop asking why you don’t see them on the store yet. They will be available at the usual time, as Morgan has answered multiple times already. Maybe read the other posts and answers before posting the same question as 20 other people.

3. You don’t have to download every game right away, just check out every item in the store, but skip the download step. You will then be able to download the item at any later date as long as your Plus sub is current.

I had to cut 3 more tips, because my comment was too long. Sorry :-P

Morgan, it would be sweet if there was a link to an FAQ on these PS+ updates that had all these and more questions that are asked every single week. Awesome update, thanks!

+ saab01 on June 5th, 2012 at 10:38 am said:

Does anyone know how long these games will last until they disappear. Do we have only 1 month to download all the content or will they be available for a longer time.

I imagine that this will not be an every month thing if it is than that it great. But what I think it will be is every 3 months or longer we will see a new 12 game rotation and the old will leave for the new.

Will the Digital games work with the disc game save?

Ok guys you got me, I just got a year subscription. Having these free games definitively changed my mind. I’ve been a long time PS3 owner but never really saw a reason to get PS+ and if these perks prove worthy you’ll for sure get my $ every year, prove me wrong Sony! =)

+ rooferguy on June 5th, 2012 at 10:42 am said:

Morgan I wanted to ask are you guys going to stay in the tradition of three day of DLC like in years 2009 thru 2011. If not I understand, because you have the option of getting 12 free games if you don’t already have them. I am personally signed till March of 2018 ( I took advantage of the First year special back in 2010 when it was first introduced LOL!!) So please let me know if you have anymore time to post before the first show day starts. Either way yes or no thanks for the answer.
