    PS Plus

    What is it all about? What do you pay and what do you get if you are a member? I just wanna know since you have to sign up to it if you wanna play online, even though Im gonna stick to ps3 for a while with all the new games that are coming out for it.

    PS Plus is like a rental service and you can also get discounts on stuff and access to Beta's etc.

    It's good value for money if you plan to keep it going every year. If you only plan to subscribe for 3 months or a year it is pretty pointless as you lose all the games if you don't re-sub.

    It is $50 for 1 year and you also get freebies like free games, avatars, and more. You also get great discounts, such as the current Tomb Raider discount available.

    So lets say i joined but the deal ran out, and i had games, i lose the games but as soon as i rejoin i can play those games again?

    Also what decides which games i get? If im paying 40 a year do i get games worth that much?

    last thing, when i get a game from ps plus, do i get it for a limited time to check it out, or is it permanent as long as im a member of it?

    If you plan on getting a PS4 and playing in online multiplayer, you will need to get it. They said that PS+ will go across both consoles. Plus you get DriveClub (or a version for free) for being a plus member come PS4 time.

    If you downloaded the game before the deal ran out, you can play the game as soon as you renew your PS Plus subscription.
    Also what decides which games i get? If im paying 40 a year do i get games worth that much?
    Sony does. You get more than enough games to cover the 40 cost.

    last thing, when i get a game from ps plus, do i get it for a limited time to check it out, or is it permanent as long as im a member of it?
    It's permanent until your subscription runs out.

    It's like paying to play online only you get free stuff. PS+ is great. Best $50 spent this gen.

    Say you subbed today, these are the games you get, and you get to keep them for as long as you're a member. (If you stop paying your sub you will lose access to them until you re-sub)

    Uncharted 3 single player
    Xcom Enemy unknown
    Little big planet karting
    Rayman origins (vita)
    coconut dodge (vita)
    Kings of amalur reckoning
    ico and shadows of colossus
    demons souls
    Sine mora
    Catherine
    malicious
    lord of the rings
    the cave
    uncharted golden abyss (vita)
    gravity rush

    All full games. And there's at least 2 new games a month added (two get takenaway). You don't have to download them,as long as you "purchase" them so they're in your download list you'll be able to download them whenever you want (even when they're removed from plus) as long as you're a member.
    I think that's worth 40 of anyone's money. Not to mention cloud saves, auto updates...

    Some things people don't really mention since the access to monthly games is such a big attraction:

    Timed Trials: Most current games allow you to try the game for 1 hour. If you decide to buy it, all of your progress and trophies are saved right where you left off.
    Cloud Saves: It something happens to your system or file corruption, you will never lose your game saves.
    Auto updates: Patches and other stuff are auto downloaded to your Playstation at a time you specifically set.
    Discounts: Huge savings with PS+. What ever you buy is yours to keep even if your subscription runs out.
    Beta Access: PS+ members will usually get access to a beta before others.
    Multiple Platforms: One PS+ subscription applies to PS3, PSVita, and now PS4.
    Avatars and Themes: Some avatars and themes are given to PS+ members.
