It’s obvious the European and the US members are not treated equally. They keep getting good news for the upcoming months all the time while we get last minute news about some crappy update to the store. I mean it’s been days since they learned what they would get in May. They got a very nice spring sale, easter egg hunt, declassified sale. What did we get in the mean time? 10 bucks back for $50 spent. Gee thanks.

Malicious looks rad! I’m new to this whole PS Plus concept though. Do we get free games every week? I keep getting mislead by the European version too. Can we make request? I would like Marvel Ultimate Alliance to be an addition in the near future and possibly LEGO Star Wars game. Thanks for everything!

Some time soon you guys should do Ni no Kuni for a Plus free release, or at least a crazy sale on it (and maybe other jrpgs to have a reason if you need one). I am really interested in that game but I lack the funds to spend that much on a game right now. Is this even a potential possibility?

Exactly, Cancerebro. It’s been 5 months since PS+ Europe got Batman Arkham City, and no sign of it for US members. Great. Thanks, Sony!

For those who didn’t get their $10 back from the spend $50 promotion, I just got some new information from $ony Play$tation. There was an issue sending out the e-mail to some accounts and they’ve extended the on or before date to May 1st (not April 12). And therefore we should receive the credit by e-mail and XMB by May 1st.

You can all thank $ony for their communication with us to let us know about the issue – joke.

I like how the reps who posted the promotion just keep silent about the issue and couldn’t figure out the reason before I (a customer) had to research and resolve the issue myself. All for a freaking $10 credit that I don’t really care about. But I do care about a money hungry company like $ony keeping all that profit for themself. Yea, I know I’m ranting, but seriously screw you $ony for not updating us on the issue and making me have to find out myself.

This was all your fault. #epicfail

@350 in re-buddle. Those who aren’t loyal to Sony and only use Playstation plus every once in a while or those who only get it for a few months here in there, of course you would feel that way and want those games to stay on there. But, for those of us who have had Playstation plus since last July are getting jerked around when it says there are 15 games a month. The fact that you got those games and enjoy them congrats I hope it was worth your 3 month subscription. However, I’ve been a Playstation plus member for over a year and those games are still on there and they are wasting 3 full ps3 game slots on them. So I understand that maybe you enjoy it with your measly 3 month subscription but those of us who are actually loyal to Sony and the Playstation plus are getting the short end of the Playstation plus stick. Its sad to say that half the Playstation plus games are either kids titles that we wouldn’t think of playing or things that are a year old. Just seems kinda pointless for me to support something that isn’t going to support my need for a fresh good quality game.

I’ve supported Sony since I was a child. Including ordering a pocket station for games like final fantasy VIII from Japan and waiting 2 months for it to arrive just so I could see what the extra part of the game. True fans deserve a little better support and Sony knows it as well as I do. Quit giving us your discount last hoorah games and give me something good. We have helped to support you the least you can do is quit leaving 3 of the actual full ps3 games on there for a year… I have purchased between 75-100 Games from Sony between Classics, PSN, and PS3 Titles through the Playstation network. That’s not talking about what I’ve gotten as a Playstation plus member that is actual purchases. Also, I’ve purchased at least 30 movies and video content from Sony. So I respectfully as that you step it up and quit leaving me with blown out games that I’ve played, platinumed, and gotten bored of twice and change them out with something fresh. Thanks, A loyal Sony fan that’s starting to question integrity.

Furthermore, I would love to hear the moderators thoughts on my whole situation so if you have some time either let me know i’m barking up a pointless tree or pass on my comments because I feel i’m using money that I could of went out and ought something I would of played instead of renewing my subscription. i’m giving Sony the benefit of the doubt that they will try and appease my problem but if not tell me now so then i’m not just spinning wheels…
