    Time to buy PS+ ?

    Was browsing the store last night and see that PS+ is on offer at 31.99 rather than 39.99.

    As well as that the Back to the future games are free during your subscription (similar to Burnout when there was the outage) as well as additional discounts to the already discounted games. I've been wanting the Burnout complete edition with all the DLC since having just Paradise city and at 11.99 seems a steal for the complete edition (4 saving compared to non + members)

    As well as this there is plenty more as well as the cloud saving and auto updates. It seems I could get my 31.99 for + membership in my first visit to the store.

    Anybody else recently subscribed and pleased with the service etc?

    Also, Crysis is 7.99.

    Yes but if you are going to buy it, buy it for a long time period.

    31.99 for the year seems good, or do you mean longer than that?

    I don't play many PSN games nowdays but PS+ gives you HEAPS of opportunities to play all sorts of different games which is really good. The discounts are welcome too.

    But as you said, imo, its worth it for auto updates/auto trophy sync/auto adding your game saves to the cloud. I haven't sat through a patch for SO LONG and its awesome, and game saves are really important imo - at least for games you are currently playing because you never know when your PS3 is going to break down (happened to me before) or get stolen (my friend got robbed last week but he's happy because his 120 hour Skyrim save file is in the cloud) That makes the subscription worth it alone

    My + subscription ran out a few weeks back. If you think you'll take advantage of it, then get it. I got a plethora of game trials, minis, and discounted games thanks to PS+. The only reason I may not renew my subscription is because I realized that the things I was buying / downloading were things I wouldn't have downloaded normally; I was simply downloading whatever was available because I could now get it for free. So, in some ways, PS+ saved me a lot of money. But from an alternative perspective, I was spending money I otherwise wouldn't have spent.

    From the looks of it you have plenty of reasons to upgrade to +. It's a great service and is always improving. When it was first unveiled there really wasn't much to it, but now there is plenty of benefit for people who use the PS Store often.

    Thanks for your thoughts and experiences people, appreciate it.

    I've got a 25 PSN card anyway so may as well make the most of it and go for PS+

    1 year of it seems to be enough, I have noticed they are regurgitating previous offers now. Stuff we got in the first year of PS+ is now being re-given again. I was pissed that I subbed for a second year after I recently got stuff I already had been given from PS+.

    Honestly think PS+ is worth it, will gladly resub.

    Got $30 off games I bought, as well as BTTF, costume quest, and plants vs zombies that were on my "buy at some point" list. (with 20+ other games, that are pretty good - not all crappers)

    I think most of it is cause of christmas, and the new members.

    I just did the one year thing, a few questions:

    Does the PS+ content update each week?
    Also, If I dont download something that is free this week ill miss out on it later because it wont be in my download history?

    -[ Over half of the 100~ish UHD Blu-rays on the market ]-
    -[ I wouldn't even watch if they came free with my breakfast cereal ]-

    If you miss something free, you missed it until it comes back.

    It used to update every week. I miss that. Now it updates every other week.

    Like F34R said, if you miss it you miss out until they decide to bring it back.

    I'm a little disappointed with PS+ this year. They are giving away some nice stuff but also a lot of stuff they gave us last year already. Great for newer subs, but sucks for people like me that have had it from the start.

    Don't know if I'm going to renew again or not. Hate that I lose everything they've given away if I don't......

    The only major reason to subscribe to Plus is for the discounts. the free games are only available to you as long as you pay for them via the subscription fee. The cloud saving is pointless as long as you're smart about backing up your game saves on your own and doesnt really make sense outside of a possible link to the Vita which hasnt yet become evident since we dont even know how many games will make use of cloud saves or if they will require you to buy many games twice just to use the save on a mobile platform.

    Calculate the discounts across a year minus the games you wouldnt really have wanted or the free games since they're not yours once you end your subscription and see THEN if it adds up to a savings you like the sound of then go for it. otherwise just stick to the free service.
