Yeah, not meaning to rain on anyone's parade, because this is a good deal - but, it's not a free game, it's a free lease on a game. The lease expires with your subscription and you lose the game. So, yeah, I'd still rather have a physical copy.


I see where you are coming from but I own Gravity Rush (sealed) which I would play and then sell off anyway. So now I can sell it but still have it to play. Plus I'm already a PS+ member so no extra $$$ out of pocket = sweet! The way I look at it is if I play something and it's so amazing I'll want to play it again I can always buy it again and probably at a cheaper price.

I don't think there are many people arguing the value of the service. I even said that I think it's a great deal; people should just be aware it's a lease and that they have to continue to pay to keep the games. That's all. It's all based on your own personal value assessment.

I have PS+ into May, 2014 and spent a total of $65 for those three years. I got ~$50 back today by selling physical copies of Uncharted and Gravity Rush on Vita and RE5 Gold on PS3. People who don't see the value of the service aren't paying attention frankly.


This X 1000

Pisses me off when ppl say I dont own the games. Im paid off through july 2014, and Im getting free games weekly, discounts up the wazoo, and if in 1.5 years I for some reason dont renew, I dont even think ill be touching any of the games anyway since ive had years to play them

I'm actually planning on doing just this. Where did you trade them in? Best I'm seeing for them would net me like $35ish.

PS+ is by far the best gaming service out there. I have my current subscription until late 2014 so I'm content with the service. Besides if I play a game, and I don't like it; I can just delete the game from HDD and call it a day. No harm no foul.

I don't see how you spent $65 on 3 years, when it's $150 for me for 3 years, unless I missed something? And, seriously, quoting some deal you got whenever it was is really helpful to people on the fence NOW about getting PS+, right?

You're right, and hopefully everyone understands this. But the cost of the "lease" is less than $5 per month. Making it infinitely renewable at present time to pretty much anyone that has any source of income.

Most people are done with any game after a few weeks anyway. It would cost more than the subscription to buy and play all those games, even if you traded them in after you were done.

3 of the top 7 threads on CAG at the moment are currently discussing this. Think maybe we can get 1 or 2 of these closed down/merged?

You missed out man. Target had a pricing error that marked the PS+ 1 Year cards to ~$15. I bought four of them, and I sold two. Then I received a year from that IGN promo. I think they were $39.99 at one point.

Again, how does this help people NOW? 3 years = $150 (+tax?)

If it wasn't for 360 exclusives like Halo and...whatever else I would've stopped paying for XBL a long long time ago. Even their gold deals aren't as good as the deals you get on PS3. PS+ was already worth it when it was offering free and discounted games for the PS3 and now, with the Vita, is just icing on a already delicious cake.

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

It doesn't help now, but I was just informing him about the situation. The only deal that I can recall now is the $15 off coupon at Best Buy in the COD Mag. Other than it's pretty much MSRP of $49.99 for one year.

Great announcement! I took advantage of Walmart's "Buy 3 vita titles for $40", so I do own a few of these from that, but no complaining here. Anything that adds to the already great value of PS+ is excellent in my opinion. I'm already planning on downloading JSR, and not having to dig out my PSP UMD version of FFT? Sweet! :)

The latest @Gamer magazine has a coupon for $5 off the CoD magazine, so that would be effectively $10 off the sub if you have it.

I called GS a little bit ago and was given the Uncharted GA TIV of $10 :(. I locked mine in at Amazon a little while ago for $18.90, but it looks as if it went down quite a bit.

Uncharted is definitely a copy that's better off selling on Ebay or another marketplace. I just managed to sell mine on Ebay for $25 before fees - so I'll net like $20.
