    Ive been really disappointed with Playstation Plus so far and i think the general feel from the community is that its just not worth the sub. Sony really need to implement more features if they want gamers to jump on the plus bandwagon. just one feature like cross game chat and I bet they would see a 100000000000% increase in subs.

    Like the first month, I already own everything I might want there. I think what I might do is stop buying stuff on PSN, wait for that stuff to appear on PSN+ and then sign up for a short period.

    Plus is for the new comers to PS3, not you.

    Possibly true, but I’m sure I can work it in my favour with some patience.

    Just like waiting for xbl games/conetent to become the deal of the week. Wait a bit and save some cash.

    Bu I would agree on the whole not much there PSN+wise to warrent a sub fee.

    Just a question .. when you get a little mini or whatever for free does it stay with you when/if you stop paying for PSN+?

    In the end tho, if Sony wants to make cash on PSN+ subs they really need to charge for online play. That is the only real feature I can see that will encourage folks to sign up and stay signed up.

    That and maybe free movies rentals. Like maybe two a week or something, anything. I don’t know, but at this point why pay for something you can do for free already?

    Games – regular, mini or PSOne are all tied to the subscription (with the exception of LBP in the EU). I’m not sure about DLC, themes and pictures though – I don’t think they are controlled in the same way, certainly not themes and pictures.

    Customer Service Told me that only Pictures, themes, and some select games will be yours to own, everything else will stay active as long as you subscribe…subscription dies, so does all your content..well most of 95%…Sigh…kind of sad that they yank your chain that way…and not in a good way.
