I'm flush with PS+ for another couple years too after this promo.

I wonder, though, if PS+ will go across all systems and include the PS4 on release, or if it'll be a tiered thing at that point.

Same here. Im sticking with my PS3/ Vita for now. Theres no way they get rid os PS+ for PS4. Id bet they give a discount for the streaming service which isnt shit.

Id rather build a new PC then get a PS4

Very odd thing to doubt/be pessimistic about. PS+ has been very successful for Sony, and they have no reason to go out of their way to destroy the program intentionally. That doesn't even make sense, really. It's never been PS3+ -- it's platform independent as evidenced even by how they worked in Vita.
I don't know what 'everything so far' means, but everything I've actually read, plus common sense, says Sony will keep PS+ (possibly renamed) through the PS4.

I don't see the point in extending your Plus subscription beyond another year or so. They've never said the service will carry over to PS4, and who knows how long they'll keep supporting it for :ps3: once the new system is out.

And then trying to get a refund for your 2015 subscription? Ha!

I have faith, Sony did not disappoint for past PS transitions.

I'm not planing to buy a PS4 until 2015 -2016; they kept supporting the PS2 long after the PS3 was released. I'm cool supporting the PS+ program and it is probably they will find out a way to stick it to the PS4.

I just created a UK account, do they have the same deal on their store or is it just the US store? Thinking about buying a year of PS+ to get the $10 back. Also, for the 12 month get 3 month, is that just for the US store or does it also apply to the UK store?

id say its a safe bet its staying around

from the sony europe ceo jim ryan:(talking about ps+)

“It’s been really well received – the value is quite extraordinary and the take-up has trebled over the course of the past year. We definitely see that as a core part of the way forward. We’re not yet in a position to disclose our plans for the future of PlayStation Plus but there will definitely be a prominent role to play for it in the PlayStation 4 landscape.”

Anyone else just get a random $5 voucher that expires on the 4th?


were you part of the group that downloaded some items off the PSN store thinking it was free (but got charged instead?)

Sony gave $5 as a form of compensation + refund

In the Forbes article, it mentions that every Vita title is available on PSN on day one. Is that true? Not being a Vita owner, I wasn't aware of this. The article goes on to mention that Sony is planning to do the same with PS4 titles. If it is, that is incredible - in theory, every PS4 title could be a PS+ offering. Why hasn't anyone mentioned that? I might even grab another year of PS+ now that the current promotions make it effectively 15 months for $40.

Yeah, Vita is the most online-integrated handheld ever. Party chat is well integrated, PSN accounts blend in seamlessly with old PSX, PSP games instantly accessible (short of not being compatible), trophy lists merge/function well, and the OS is snappy for closing programs/games or going between them.

Having all games available digital also means eventual sales even if they aren't offered as free. I won't drop $40 on a digital game, but for a game like Katamari, getting it for $12 via PS+ discount to have it is an easy buy to me. Especially games with lots of replay, pick-up-and-play value (Persona 4 being another good example).

It's a shame they have such excellent infrastructure and internal support but are letting the system die at retail. Nintendo's brand couldn't sell the 3DS at $250, I don't know why Sony thinks the Vita can.

So question.....what will happen to all of our PS3 PSN games once they stop supporting the PS3?

any games you buy and have on your ps3 are not in any threat -- after all, the games are already on your ps3 and authenticated. if you remove your internet connection, they still work.

there are some risks, but this sort of thing is the same with every digital storefront, from Steam to Itunes. It's part of why some really dislike digital -- the lack of true ownership.

I just wanted to point out that during the PS4 press conference, they included Playstation Plus as one of the services they were bringing back into PS4, alongside with things like Netflix and Crackle. So for right now, PS+ on PS4 is pretty much confirmed. I don't get what people are so worried about.

It'll most likely be universal between the PS3, PS4, and Vita. Just like it is now.

Since people don't seem to realize this is a thread for discussing games/sales and not what happens in 10 years to your PSN games, I'll contribute. I've scrounged up four concrete, confirmed facts from the mouths of Sony execs themselves. Because clearly everything on the Internet is 100% true and it's best to get upset about rumors than wait til things are confirmed.

Remember, below you will read facts, not rumors. You've been warmed.

Spoiler


Back to the topic at hand. I can't believe I bought When Vikings Attack. Did they have a sale at launch or something? I have no idea why I would just buy this random game. Must have been desperate for a Vita game. I finally got around to trying it and it is terrible. Only price I'd recommend is free. Not fun at all.

You have at spend at least $50 dollars in the psn store to get the $10 back. This can be done in multiples of $50.

I'm not the original poster but clearly the spoiler was meant to be humorous. Did you actually read the things there? They were pretty outlandish.

Back on topic, I bought Velocity mini which I so far hate. Bought GTA:SA which I never got to finish on the PS2 and probably won't get to finish on the PS3 either. Bought Super Stardust Delta which is great. and what else...?

Goddammit Sony! I renewed my PS+ and it re-ordered my entire download history with every PS+ game having a "purchase" date of March 1. Why do you do things like that? Do you want us to hate you Sony?
