    Greetings all,

    Welcome to the PS+ thread.

    This thread is designed for PS+ subscribers to add and discuss information related to content found as a PS+ member.

    Also let's hope it can also help out potential subscribers with info about what's on offer and such so they can weigh up the value.

    HBK619 is currently chucking together a FAQ (the diligent worker that he is) that he will post in this thread.

    So please feel free to add with any opinions, news, info or rumours related to PS+ to help keep us all informed.

    Cheers. :thumbsu:

    Coming from a former Xbox fanboy PS+ is the greatest investment in console gaming I've ever made.

    Since Stacking was free for PS+ I entered into the great world that Sony have created for the gamer. Being rewarded for paying the subscription is a genuinely unique idea in the gaming industry it would seem and Sony have rewarded customers in huge kind in the last couple of years.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution is probably the best story I have from PS+. It was a game I was completely hesitant on buying, didn't think I'd like it so was never willing to put down the money (even when it was on sale for around $20). It became free on PS+ during 2012 so I decided I'll download it and give it a go and what I found was an incredible game that perfectly suited the way I love games to be and be played (HOWEVER YOU WANT!). Now I'm wholly interested not only in what the dev do next (Thief 4), but the next Deus Ex game!

    Also, just to add, there's currently a discount on PS+ prices. You get 15 months subscription for the regular 12 month price. And I believe the 3 month sub is cheaper by $1 too, or it's just been permanently discounted, not 100% sure on that one.

    Here's the FAQ which I'll edit into the OP;

    Nice HBK.:thumbsu:

    I'm stoked. I downloaded Mass Effect 3 and Infamous 2 today - 2 games that I wanted to check out but didn't wanna pay the over-inflated price for.

    And next month with Okami HD getting uploaded, I feel like I've already got my monies worth.

    I'm a PS+ member and it's one of the best things I have ever done. Picked up some great freebies and the best thing is, I can beat it and if I do lapse it doesn't matter, because it's only cost me 69 dollars a year as apposed to 69 dollars a game.

    I paid for three months when I got my PS3 a month ago and it is certainly a good concept. Just downloaded Dead or Alive 5. I'm always sad when one of the games I already have on disc (Mass Effect 3 on 360) but that can't be helped I guess.

    Just a question that I haven't seen answered, if I let me subscription lapse for say a month am given access to all the games I've downloaded in the past if I renew?

    Yes, all games downloaded under the subscription will be accessible as long as you have a subscription.

    Does the PS Plus subscription automatically renew? I think I became a member around April/May last year but not sure if I have to manually renew it or if it will charge my credit card unless I choose to stop my subscription?

    I beleive it's set to auto-renew.

    If you want to check and/or change that, you can go to 'PlayStation Network'>'Account Management'>'Automatic Funding'>Enter your password>On/Off.

    Building up a good catalogue of games to go through, but in the meantime, the free games each month certainly keep the kids happy. F1 Stars and Joe Danger 2 are getting a workout at the moment.

    Ahhh ok so that's your kids playing. I'll try to limit any sexually explicit messages.

    That would be appreciated Mr Pants...not that they know how to read the messages. Between the kids playing those games and the wife using Quickflix or streaming tv shows, PS3 has sadly become a family tool.

    I sent some sexually explicit messages to your wife. It involved her making me sandwiches as I was so hungry after the sex.

    She's already ashamed of being married to a 34yo who plays video games with randoms online...Why would she trade me in for someone who plays more games than I do?
