I'm paying for the service, which the games come free with.


Just out of curiosity, other than the "free" games, what is the point in having PS+?

So many games for free right now that I can't play.


Free? You're paying to play them.

Nope. You're paying for the service.
The games, cloud saving, discounts are all part of the service.

Hmmm each to there own I guess. Personally I don't find cloud saving useful but I suppose discounts are nice. Paying for discounts just isn't my thing. Thank you for the info though. I may find it useful one day.

To add to what I posted earlier:

-The cloud saving lets you back up "copy protected" saves
-Automatic game and system software updates (This one could be very useful to some people)
-60 minute trials of a bunch of full games
-Early access to betas and stuff

I have a PS3 and Vita, so it'll end up being more than worth it.
Some could even say, the service pays for itself.

Last thing about PS Plus:

All of the "free" stuff that you download will be in your download list. If you aren't a member anymore, you can't use the "free" stuff.
(And I believe, the items don't show up in your list anymore)

However, if you decide to resubscribe, all of the "free" stuff that you downloaded will show up in your download list again.
You'll be able to use all the things again, even if they aren't in the "cycle" of "Free games of the month".
As long as you downloaded it at some point, you're good.

The service more than pays for itself, you're pretty much being spoiled.

Sounds like a ripoff. Does ps+ make the psn connection better?

Monster Hunter is awesome.

Why would you even think it works that way?
