I have played none of those games other than FFT. This is like Christmas come early. AWESOME.


You are in for a treat. Uncharted is very good and Gravity Rush starts off strong, but became a chore about 2/3s the way through it.

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.


It's ok. I got like 5 years of PSN plus to the cheap thanks to Target. :D

Quick noob question. I have a Vita but not a PS3 and I'd like to take advantage of the free PS3 games since they'll probably expire in a month or two or so. Is there anyway to acquire these games now and then play them when I get a PS3 or do I have to own the PS3 to be able to lock in the free PS3 games? I hope that question makes sense...

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.


Better than the generous $3.00 BB is offering. :lol:

Unless I'm a noob myself, nope. I know what you mean though, kinda like how Xbox Live has the site you can access from a computer and add things to your download queue. PSN doesn't have anything like that and you need to access it through a PS3.

If Sony included a year of PS+ with a new vita I'd be extremely tempted to go out and buy one. But they won't do anything this smart.

Regardless, most people keep PS+ because they release new games every month. And ever since E3 they are releasing full retail games more and more. It easy to see the benefit, especially when compared to XBL imo.

Thanks! That's what I figured. Looks like it's finally time to buy a PS3 (probably for Black Friday)

Awesome stuff. Can't wait to get Jet Grind. I wonder how big the game is. I've only got the 4gb that came with the bundle.


Jet Grind Radio was originally a Dreamcast title. And Dreamcast titles came on custom GD-Rom discs, which stored around 1 Gigabyte of data. So Jet Grind Radio for the Vita probably won't take up any more than 1 Gigabyte. (and will probably be less, possibly much less) I don't think you'll have anything to worry about.

So I could just get a 3 month subscription and then download and keep these games?

Or do I lose them when subscription is over?

Free games you get from Playstation+ don't expire when your subscription lapses. It just means you won't be able to get any of the new free games that come out. If I download and install those free games on my PS3 and Vita, I will be able to continue enjoying them for as long as I please, even if I don't renew my Playstation+ subscription.


.....that's not true :roll:
You can only play the free games as long as you are a member.

YEAH!
I was waiting for a sale for Wipeout and Uncharted and now they're free*.
Uncharted is great to "rent" since I won't likely play it more than once.
And I already got Mutant Blobs and FFT on sale, so I'm doing a good job of winning with my Vita experience so far.

*no, they're not actually free but since I already spent the money, I'm not thinking about that for another year.

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


It is relevant when people are questioning the cost of the service + the cost of storage versus the value they are receiving back. For those that spent significantly less for the cost of the service, it increases their returned value.

Not every post is to help you now. Discussion occurs and the scenario above was brought up. Relax.

On that similar line, is PS + worth it if you have no plan to get a Playstation 3? I am contemplating this :-#

I don't know that it would be smart of them to do so. A month, maybe, but a year is a little excessive for them to give away. You can however partake in deals as they occur that include a free $50 GC and then use that on PS+.

The only thing that pushed me over the edge was the COD Bestbuy magazine that they gave to me when I renewed my Gamer's Club; it had a $15 off coupon for a PS+ 1 Year sub that expires in a couple days.

i agree and while I have a few years free from IGN, I think the service would pay for itself multiple times over during the course of a year to justify even the full $50.

but nobody is locked into $50, you can always trade stuff in towards a card, wait for deals, etc. And they usually go for less than retail on Ebay, though you see this less and less as the service gets popular.

So instead of a permanent price cut, sony will just give away the games to encourage more unit sales. Well played sony!

I am guessing you could download Final fantasy tactics on the PSP as well if you have PS +? Or just the vita?

My GoW Origins Disc game saves carried over to the Digital versions from the GoW Saga dlc.

I would say yes. As someone who has been debating a gravity rush purchase lately, it's still going for near to full price. Uncharted: GA is top notch and the vitas small library should score plus some great titles coming up and/or classics.


Thank you kind sir! I already purchased a 32 gb card... so now just need to find some decent price PS + Prepaid card. :D

Awesome. I've been saving my free year of PS+ from the Playstation Card for when it went live on the Vita. I already have 2 of those games but I'm stoked for the others. Fingers crossed for a PS+ deal that gives us 50% off of all PSP games. I want those GoW games.

Also, a lot of people are asking if you can "purchase" Vita games via their PS3 store. Do you think it'll work the other way around too? Can we download PS3 games via our Vitas? I'm away from my PS3 for the next month but I have my Vita with me.

so the only good games on the Vita will now be free on PS+... hopefully this will lure some of their loyal fanboys into the system...
