Who would pay $60 a year to only rent the same 8 games? My local rental store only charges $20 a year and allows me unlimited access across multiple platforms.

I hate to be that guy but does this mean we love Jim Sterling and Destructoid today?

It's $50, and we can get great discounts. And not everyone has some type gamefly store in the area we can access.

PS+ has paid it's self for me. So from here on out I will refer to any new games as free.

It is true, PSN + is pretty damn good. Free games and cloud storage...Yeah.

were they comparing it to rental stores? also lmao @ rental stores, havent seen one of those in a while.

back on topic though, maybe you should read the story, I dont think they were comparing the 2.

Just bought PS+ for a year for 40. Already saved 2 on AllStars, but I was heavily impressed with the games available for free download. Considering new games cost over 50 here this is what I get from PS+:

Infamous2
Little Big Planet 2
Bioshock2
Burnout
Limbo
Ratchet and Clank (3or4 in one)

Just to name a few plus a load of other games I can try out and if I enjoy them, that's a bonus.

I already have a postal rental service which costs me 42 a year and I get to rent one game a month. With the PS+ service atleast I get to hold onto all the games rather than returning one and trying a new ones whenever.

I wouldn't have got PS+ if I didn't think it was value for money, infact I'm saving a butt load on games.
