Only pay monthly if you want to waste money. Buy a year at a time, and shop around for the best prices.
so i assume everyone now has both ps3 and 360 and plus is better value so don't pay for LIVE..
gets my vote ;-)
Ouch, anyone that pays monthly for Xbox Live is getting taken for all they're worth.
What is it like $10 per month? When you could just go ahead and get the full year for half the price in the end.
Never understood Xbox Live. I think most simply pay because they are forced too.
I really like PSN+ alot, auto game and system updates, 1gb online save data storage, oh and the games plus discounts.
I would highly recommend a 750gb hdd upgrade if you are getting PSN+ because you are going to fill your hdd very quickly thats how good the service is.
That's insane, and would make a mess of XBL.
How the hell do people ever get on matchmaking etc, only to find that their version of the game wont run with other because it hasn't been patched, that's friggin nuts.
Xbox360live hell no, PS3 ps+ hellyes
I still pay, I was considering switching to PSN this year for Black Ops 2 but after thinking about it for a day or two I decided to just renew my Gold Sub for the better service and early DLC.
I believe you are a little confused, everyone gets the same updates just being on + my system at 4pm when I work kicks on looks for updates and patches does them then shuts off.
The problem with live is simply this, you and your mate can play a PS3 game together just fine but on Xbox for the same game you both need to pay for Live.
Unless there is a revolution in Xbox camp you guys will most likely be paying next gen too.
I'll gladly pay if the service is far superior like this gen.
It's a rental and discount service but the discounts are so small that the service is practically a rental service.
PSN+ lets you rent games, get early access to demos/betas, exclusive access to demos/betas and big discounts on digital games and dlc. It also gives you cloud access, trophy auto-sync, and automated downloads/patching. PSN+ is a great service for those interested in those features.
Trophy auto-sync should not be a paid feature.
The discounts I see on PS+ are so miniscule I often wonder "why bother". I have never seen anything discounted enough to be worthwhile, and that discounted item often becomes one of the "free" games that aren't actually free cause you're paying for them by having the service subscription and then eventually losing them if you don't re-subscribe.
I can't pin point specific discounts right now..I don't have the service. However, when I see people post about certain deals on games because of PSN+, I have seen substantial discounts mentioned.
Perhaps the American PS+ is better, I dunno. However, as far as I am aware and have seen for myself. the UK doesn't get any significant deals in regards to discounts.
Since ps4 probably wont have backeard compat I stopped buying games.
I use plus to keep me going with free games so I dont have to spend money on disc games only for them to b worthless next gen.
Not saying live sucks but + is a very good service

Xbox live is the better service, end of story, thats why we pay for it.
If you could see what I can do with my ipHone, my borhter in laws Andriod, my web browser form work, all that stuff integrates seemlessly into live these days.
Look at this way.
PSN is nearly about where Live was when it launched at the beginning of this gen (missing cross game chat which is again - a feature that makes the service so isolated) but Live has long since moved on past that. I mena can you remote control your PS3 from you iphone?
