Banana bread?


Had to throw out my bread maker because my banana bread consumption was getting out of hand.

Fresh, hot banana bread with a little butter...that's the way to start your day on a cold winter morning.

I kind of like how people are assuming it will be the same as it is on 360.

Why do they need more details if it is the same?

I guarantee this program on XBOne will be the exact same as PS+. Meaning that you won't keep the games if your Live subscription lapses.

The fact of the matter is that the free games you get with PS+ remain available to play as long as you pay for its subscription. Therefore those games are being rented. The free games you get with XBL become available to play forever, even after your subscription for it expires. Therefore you own those games. Anyone who argues that that isn't true needs to get a clue.

So, two things about PS+ games being rentals

1 - I can see where this argument would come from, considering you lose access to the games you got for free (not the ones you purchased on a discount, however) if you let your PS+ subscription lapse. However, if you're going to keep your PS+ subscription up at all times so you can play multiplayer on the PS4, then what exactly makes it different from the PS+ games being actually free?

2 - As stated earlier in the topic, you still retain access to all PS+ games in your download history, even if you let your subscription lapse; they're waiting for you to redownload them at no cost once you start up again, or if you have to delete them for more space. That said, I currently have access to roughly 200 games that I got "free" from PS+. At $50/year, this basically means I'm paying $4 and change every month to play 200 games, and this number just gets bigger and bigger every month. I'd argue that's a hell of a deal for a rental service.

If you keep your PS+ subscription then obviously you get to continue having access to the games you got for free. That doesn't mean that they're not rentals however. It's not an argument on the quality of the deal, just that you need to keep up the subscription in order to retain access to those games.
