I might need to double check my math here but $1300 > $50.
I'll just use a simple example, I didn't buy inFamous 2 or VF5:FS, prices to buy them at the time they were put on PS+ = $55 together, a year of PS+ = $50. I Platinum'd inFamous 2 and 100% VF5:FS, so generally speaking I wouldn't need to ever play them again and I got my money's worth. Already with just those 2 games I'm $5 over the cost of PS+ for a YEAR.
That doesn't even take into consideration the actual money saved from discounts on the games you actually buy which you DO get to keep even after you end your subscription. So again I'm not a mathematician but as soon as your Money Saved > $50 it would become a worthy investment.
So anyone who has passed elementary school can probably figure out that PS+ is "worth it".

You can rent new games genius. And you actually can pick them.
It hasn't quite been a year since I had PS+ but I paid $50 for a year subscription and just from that alone I've had the chance to play OVER $1000 worth of PSN/PS3 games and over $300 worth of PSVita games. I'd provide the list but I'm sure it doesn't need to be shown.
And smarter people would have rented these games or bought them and owned them for way less than you priced them at considering how quickly those games droppes in value so spare me your horrible math. Thats like saying ive saved millions by playing free games on iphone.
Truth is that real gamers would have played infamous 2 when it was new or not even been interested in it to begin with.

I love PS+...but it must suck to live where you do. It costs $7 to rent a new game for 5 nights here with no deposit needed..
I'll never look at an apple the same way again..
cloud saving and auto-update alone are worth the subscription, I've been a subscriber pretty much since it came out and have like 100 'free' games. I really don't understand the hate people have for plus, except they're the same people who hate on everything and are generally miserable. Free or not free is debatable, what is NOT debatable is the fact that plus is one of the best subscription based services on consoles yet based solely on discounts.
You got it backwards kiddo. Its not free. Fact. Its a lease. Its debatably a good deal if you like leasing old games that you could buy for less than a movie. Also auto updates is something psn users use out of denial than psn is just plain slow. Its called a 10 second update on xbox or pc.

So go to the Xbox or PC boards instead of ****ing on things people on these boards enjoy. And claiming updates take 10 seconds on 360 or pc is just flat out false. System updates on ps3 and 360 are generally the same amount of time give or take a min or 2. And as far as not being free, it is stated every time you download a free game that the game is free AS LONG AS you are a subscriber.

i love that you use the word genius while failing to understand what I was saying.
this ladies and gentleman is the person who doesnt understand the purpose of ps+, but instead of just saying its not for him he feels compelled to mock it. I dont know about you, but I like a lot of other people dont get a chance to play every single game that comes out when it comes out, a lot of people have backlogs, a lot of people have games they were interested in but never got because they werent sure about it, or were introduced to a game they didnt think they would like but thanks to the free games they found a new game to enjoy.
oh and lol @ "real gamers" I forgot to add that last time, I was laughing too hard. some people actually feel thats something special.
There's not a lot of point conversing with someone who uses "real ganers" as part of an argument.

Sorry, but you are wasting time arguing with someone who says things like "real gamers"
Guns don't kill people. Husbands who come home early do.
I personally don't see what's wrong with PS+. It has been very beneficial for me. Given the mentality of today's gamers... most buy, complete, and trade it in. I just joined last year, and I've played a lot of games and benefitted from discounts. Many of those games I never actually got around to playing, but I enjoyed very much. This year alone I played VF5: Final Showdown, Darksiders, Sleeping Dogs, and Spec Ops: The Line. I even got to finally try out Demon's Souls so I can't really complain.
The day one 20% discount on Metro : Last Night made it to sweet to pass up. The best part about it.. it's completely optional and you can still play your MP games without it.
