    PS+ Worthy Or Not?

    So... Maybe you guys can help me out put a final end to my decision.
    I'm currently having quite some doubts whether or not I should get myself PS+.
    I'm trying to see the pros and cons in a list and make a decision from that, but I'm still doubting...
    Here's a little scheme that I made. The ones that are underlined are really interesting (Pro)/are keeping me back (Con).


    Pro
    Con
    Free game(s)/console each month Never know which games, can be disappointing
    Not that expensive Monthly Fee (I rather pay for x months each time automatically)
    Cloud Saving (Each device 1 gb) Only 1gb for each device, quickly filled up I think...
    Multiplayer Only on PS4, don't have one yet, so no use for me (yet)
    Few little extras on PS3 (like auto installing updates?) Not really that special to make me go like 'OMG $#@! YEAH LIFE'S GOOD'
    Cheaper games in PSstore I'll never buy digital, unless not availabe in physical version
    Not sure how long I'd use my PS3/PSVita, I'm switching frequently between PC/Consoles

    Would be awesome if you guys could help me out making this decision

    PS+ Worthy Or Not?

    From your cons and not needing it on the PS4 for online then no, don't get it.

    If there's games that you want on PS+ when they're announced then subscribed for 90 days or something.

    Just 1 thing though, 1GB storage on each console has seemed plenty for me, I have a hell of a lot of saves especially on PS3 uploaded and my 1GB isn't even half full.

    You've even said you're switching more to PC so save the funds for something else, not much point buying some thing you'll hardly use

    I had a problem deciding as well but then I though $#@! it I shall join for 3 months and see how I feel! I have to say it is the best choice I have made in a long time, so much so that I wish I had kept my PS3 for all the free and heavily discounted games! I don't really have a lot of use for it on my PS4 but that will change soon enough I know but for the Vita it's been a god send! As of yet I have not had to purchase a physical copy of any games because the free ones have been good (Moto GP 13, Lego Batman, Uncharted: Golden Abiss) and there has been some great titles heavily discounted, an example of which right now is WRC 4 for only 11.99 which for the content you get an absolute steal!!

    I would recommend PS+ to anyone and I would say give it a try for 90 days or 3 months and if you are still not sure or not getting your moneys worth then cancel and buy at a later stage when good PS4 titles become available, but for me now I couldn't imagine gaming with out it and I hardly ever play multiplayer online!

    Hope this helps somewhat

    Just going back to my initial response, I was commenting purely on your needs and focusing on your cons which IMO out weighted your pros.

    For me personally I will be subbed until something changes, absolutely awesome value

    I would totally recommend going for PS+, I wasn't going to get it myself but decided to go for it once I saw all the discounts and free games you could get, and it's mental sometimes the savings you can make! Only recently I purchased Mafia 2, L.A Noire with all the DLC and Dishonored and all of that cost me 25 which I thought was brilliant for 3 games. I also have a back log of Hotline Miami, Tomb Raider, Sly Cooper 4, Lego Batman 2 and Bioshock Infinite which were all free to download

    I now own a PS4. Didn't own a PS3, on xbox360 at the time. I signed up to xbox live because i used to play a lot of online games, not so much now. Soon as i got my PS4 though i signed up for 12 months regardless, did need to for BF4 i guess. Now i'm bored with BF4 (and TLoU is out very soon) i just will not be playing it much hence not so great a need for PS+. That said, I have a fair collection of games that essentially cost me nothing, some great games too: Resogun, Strider, Don't Starve. Those are games i'm playing and going back to, not just freebies that I'm not bothering with if you get me.

    For the sake of the freebies alone I would recommend signing up to PS+.

    Thanks for your replies guys, they help me!
    I figured out I might get a 3 month/12month subscription (to try it out whether or not I use it a lot/if it's as useful as it looks).

    One question though..
    What happens with my Savegames when I stop the sub? Do they delete them or what?

    once your subscription ends you'll still have the games on your system you just won't be able to play them!

    I personally think its good value. I have a friend in real life who is a PS3 owner and future PS4 owner, he only ever plays Fifa and COD online, he practically doesn't play any other game and he is pissed off that he'll need to pay to play online. To be fair though he plays online on those two games often enough to the point that the subscription is worth it. He doesn't seem to think its worth it though and I think thats the only thing holding him back from buying a PS4 right now.

    And my savegames? :P
    So the saves that my PS+ would save into the cloud when I get it.. Do they get deleted or such? Or are they invalid then? They'll still be on my PS3 and stuff, right?

    what? no lol when your PS+ subscription ends you keep the game and all the saves, you just can't play the game again until you renew your subscription.

    reading your pros and cons, i have a hard time recommending it, even though i would recommend it in a heartbeat.

    the only thing i can suggest is asking yourself, how willing are you to try random games (sometimes are very good because they are chosen and not just randomly put on there) and if you will be keeping your Vita and the PS3 while getting a PS4 soon.

    if you won't be keeping your PS3/Vita and will only be on the PS4...i don't know, would seem like a waste but you need it for PS4 online play.

    I don't sell anything of my consoles/handhelds/games, so the keeping is a given
    Haven't gotten a sub yet, still having some doubts

    Just bought a year of PS + guys
    Am now getting Lego Batman for free on my Vita :P

    Bit disappointed though, apparently the game's only in French....
    I can't get a Dutch/English version (preferred English ofc.)...
    PSN account is BELGIAN. Belgium = Dutch/French. Why do they not give us a choice? :/

    PS+ is the best reason to own only one console - which is the PS3.

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...
    [South Park: Stick of Truth is pure gaming bliss!]

    Checked in game, can't change the language :l
    Subtitles and the whole game's in English, except spoken language -.-
    I contacted AskPlaystation on twitter, but as usual they're useless as $#@! :')

    Nonetheless, so far..
