questions about PS+

#1DBN_StealthPosted 5/8/2013 2:51:52 PM
Ok so i never gave it much thought but im looking into getting it. I just have a few questions.

When i buy a game with a ps+ discount do i keep the game even if i let my subscription expire?
If i get a free game from playstation plus do they disappear from my system when i let it expire? do i have to keep a subscription active?
what are some of the best perks to having a PS+ account?

Yes

They're only available as long as you're a member. However if your membership expires and you come back later, they will still be available.

what are some of the best perks to having a PS+ account?

Free games
Extra discounts
Cloud saving.

Yes

No, but they won't work anymore. If your sub runs out, you'll have to reactivate it and then do a quick download/cancel to have them update that your sub is active again (you do not have to re-download them)

Cloud saving which is the only way to ensure your saves can be transferred and kept if your PS3 ever dies on you, discounts on the store which can get crazy ridiculous (for example, DMC HD collection was on sale last week, 14.95 I believe....considering it's still generally 40 dollars in stores for physical, yeah....when they have big sales, you can potentially save a lot of money if it's things you were contemplating getting at some point)

And of course the "free" stuff you get, including the games, themes, avatars, one hour trials, betas, and sometimes game releases ahead of the general PSN population, the most recent I recall being Jet Set Radio, we got it a week early.

Why is this such a common question? You paid for something, during a sale.
