Pandora is more about making a personalized radio station. Sony Unlimited Music is more comparable with Spotify, which is the service I currently pay for. Both options let you make playlists of whatever music they have in their library. They allow you to listen to as much as you want with no limits, no skips (paid service). Spotify even has it's own "Pandora" built into their app. Wouldn't Netflix be another good comparison?

My understanding is that this is for the basic service which appears to be just like pandora. Maybe I'm wrong but I doubt they'd discount the premium version to $1 a month.

Nice, free Sonic 1 and 2 in HD. Guess I can delete the Genesis versions that were free for PS+ a few months ago.

It’s Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 from the Genesis days, so they’re’ the same games that were free a ways back ( I think about 1.5 years ago

I'd really like to know the answer to this. Searched their blog post but didn't see anyone ask the question. It's a good deal either way, but I probably wouldn't bother with basic. Something comparable to spotify, however, would be excellent. This entire time I thought music unlimited was only Sony artists, but it's...not. :bouncy:

Btw, there's a 14-day trial that automatically starts simply by signing into the music unlimited site with your SEN info. It surprisingly didn't require credit card info and was hassle-free. Something to consider. I know I'll be giving it a spin for a week on my phone and ps3 before signing up.

They specifically say it's the premium plan that's on sale, which is the top tier plan.

Are the PS Vita AR games not free anymore? (Games like PulzAR, Tabletop Tanks, etc.) Were they ever free?

This is the link where it mentions they are free.

PulzAR and Tabletop Tanks were never free. The cliff diving, fireworks and soccer were free though, are they not anymore?

Those two were never free, but the three launch games should still be free for everybody. I'd guess that the page was made for those three and they eventually added the others because they're related.

I'll probably pick up Nights as I never owned a Saturn and have heard good things about that game. Sorcery is currently $9.99 @Newegg with free shipping. It's also been on sale @Gamefly for the same price for a used copy.

That 1 year of music streaming actually is tempting. I wonder how the quality is as compared to Youtube?

They are, sorry. I guess I should have checked all 6 before I posted. Thanks, I did download the 3 free ones. Can anyone recommend any of the 3 other ones? Are they any fun at all?

Frisky, a quick one please! When I "get" one of the free games from PS+ (for the Vita for example...), is the game downloaded onto the memory card in my Vita for playing? And do I have to be connected via wifi for the game to work? thanks

If I renew (technically sign up again as my sub lapsed) on my Vita, will it count as being applicable to both accounts (my PS3 and Vita)? In other words, will I be among those who won't have to pay extra for Plus for Vita?

There's no separate subscription for just one or the other, so any sub is for both platforms.

Yeah, it'll appear with the normal weekly update.

Since it's not immediately apparent, you upload saves to the cloud with the Content Manager app.

Yes. No.


thanks, much appreciated! And I guess I have to know how much room I have on my mem card as well as the file size before downloading... guess I have to get a bigger card than the one (4 gb) that came with my bundle. One other question, please, do the downloaded "free for PS+" games remain as long as you have PS+, or do they have a time-limited run on the system?

Settings -> Playstation Network -> Automatic Update Settings

That'll do the automatic uploading of saved games, and Frisky says manual uploads are done through the content manager.

If this is how they are trying to boost hardware sales for vita (systems and memory cards) count me in :)

Has anyone found a cheaper deal on the 32GB card than Amazon? ($81+free ship) Or for that matter, any BF deals involving memory cards? I've been lurking all the deals sites and nada.

I think Newegg has the cheapest price right now $79.96. Still, these memory cards are absurdly expensive. Actually I just saw Tigerdirect has it for 76.99 http://www.tigerdire...6NlCQvf6ltRAMBQ

Holy hell! I wonder why so early.

I've been waiting forever for this, I need to format my system and had to backup my saves. Sony is a FOOL for not allowing us to back up our saves, and a DOUCHE to force people to pay for the 'privilege'.
