I mainly stopped being impressed awhile ago when I realized most PS+ sales were equal to or more expensive than retail prices.

Also your annual price was just a promotional price... it's not normally $30... not that I'm arguing $60 is too expensive, just that your math is off for general cases

On the first point I'm not sure what you mean. NHL 14 came out in September and that was $15.00 on PS+ in December. I game share'd it with a friend for $7.50 CAD. Pretty sure if you go to GameStop today it'll be at least $49.99 USD.

I can't think of a single example of where a PS+ sale was more expensive than retail price.

For the $30 vs $60 anyone who's a real gamer knows to wait for 3 things: E3, Black Friday and Boxing Day. I do all my pre-ordering during E3 when they have the 'pre-order 3 or more games for $39.99 each' deal. Look at all the people buying PS4 games in November by spending $59.99 per for no reason when those games were $39.99 back in June.

People who don't wait are the ones who complain that they're broke or say it's too expensive.

Plus sucks for me, because I'm not a renter. I don't play enough games for it to be worthwhile either. The games I do play, though, I play the hell out of, multiple times. I also tend to buy my games really damn cheap, discounted new. I also like to wait for CE's and Collections, so I get multiple games and all the DLC for them. This often means I only spend about $10 per game. It's also very rare that a game I want goes up for sale, and oftentimes I've already bought it, and for less than what the Sale Price on PSN was.

The only real service that Plus provides that would be of any value to me is the Cloud Saving Service, and it's a shame I can't get it separately, it would make backing up my HDD a bit easier.

This. I've played 4 -5 games for the past 2 years. Plus wouldn't have saved me jack.

well when I buy 15- 20 dollar games for less than 4 dollars...I do believe I OWN THEM and since I have plus until late might as well say I own them too b/c by that time I will not care about a lot of the stuff I got FOR FREE

When it's bought digitally, doesn't matter what you think, you'll never actually own it.

since i'll never own these games how much do you think it would cost me if I rented all these games for the next 4-5 yrs?

Whats with the "lol ur renting it" guys lol. Sony would be stupid if they offer AAA games like Infinite, RDR, and others to anybody that decides to pay $10 for a month to take advantage of it. Besides it isn't expensive unless you a cheap ass >_>
