I'm confused, as I used to have a ps3 a few years ago, I was going to get one on black Friday but I keep hearing about this Playstation plus. Is internet gaming not free anymore? And if its not is it cheaper/more expensive/same as Xbox Live?

Thanks.

It's a subscription service that offers a rotation of downloadable games, extra discounts, some exclusive themes and avatars, the occasional beta, cloud storage for saves, and automated downloads/uploads/trophy syncing.

Online play is still free.

PlayStation Plus is just a bonus subscription service. Basically, the perks are as follows:
-Free PS3 and Vita games while you're a member (at least 10 at start and at least one or two a month)
--When your subscription expires you lose access, but subscribing again lets you play any previously-downloaded game
-Exclusive sales
-Cloud saves
-Automatic updates (your PS3 can be scheduled to turn on, check for, download and install updates and sync trophies)
-Other stuff I can't think of right at the moment

It's non-mandatory; online gaming, access to video apps, etc. are still free, unlike Xbox Live.
