"gotta say it again...PLAYSTATION PLUS, MAN"


  

          

It's been kind of slow on major games for a while (unless you always wanted to play Borderlands...I don't care much for FPS), but the past two weeks? Look, I'm broke, so I really try not to spend money on games unless I just NEED to play something...hence buying basically Rockstar and NBA 2K games only since I got a PS3.


But you're telling me if I pay just $50 a year, I'll have already played Outland, Renegade Ops, and INfamous 2 for free, replayed Infamous 1 for free, gotten Uncharted 1 + 2 in a $20 bundle, Portal 2 for $6, Borderlands, Warhammer 40K, Virtua Fighter 5 Final and Just Cause 2 for free, and NOW, in the past 2-3 weeks

you're letting me grab Resident Evil 5 for free, which I never would have played on my own because of the co-op foundation (and coincidentally as a friend dusts off his Gamecube for marathon runs of RE0-4 that I'm guiding him through?), Bioshock 2 for free (coincidentally as I'm planning to finally play Bioshock in the next few weeks) and, starting tomorrow, Street Fighter IV: Arcade for free? I haven't played a Street Fighter since II Turbo (maybe some arcade Alpha), but how am I supposed to turn down the best 2D fighter maybe ever for NO charge?


Like everyone else with PS+, or casual observers, I'm fucking amazed at what this service has turned into. My $50 in, like, March, has quickly translated to like $500-$600 in spending I didn't have to fret over. And I totally accept that I lose these games if I stop paying the fee, because even if they fall off on the big deals for a while it's already like four years before I start losing on the investment.

but GOOD

Glad to see Sony getting off the ball and giving people more worth from their yearly subscription. Microsoft has been sitting on their laurels for too damn long with Xbox live... crossgame chat only goes so far. This is the type of shit that would genuinely get me to consider getting the premium service (I'd still need a PS3, but that's beside the point).

Glad to see Sony giving MS some serious competition in this area.

I feel you on dedicating HD space. I have a 60, and I'm constantly trying to conserve, while my girlfriend has a 300 and stays downloading random shit and forgetting about it. Hell, I even have a few games that I've downloaded onto her console that I only play while I'm over there.

I will say, on conserving space and PS+ "free" games, if you have the room at all, it's worth downloading them and deleting them if you don't have the space. That way, when they're not free anymore, you still have them in your library to download whenever you please.

It's like paying for Netflix except with a selection that is whittled down to like 20 titles per year instead of thousands.

It's good for certain people, but like you mentioned it offered games that you didn't even want to play...isn't that a waste of your money?

I was thinking about getting it for Vita, but I realized I only play like 2 or 3 games per year and I know pretty much exactly what I want.

7. "Netflix is about $100/yr, Gamefly about $200/yr"
In response to Reply # 5


  

          

This is $50, and you have access to these games for as long as you have the subscription. Again, having saved around $4-500 by my estimation in just 8 months, even if I never register a free game again, it'd be 10 years before I spend on PS+ what I would have spent just this year alone.


My point wasn't that I didn't want to play the games I got, my point was that I didn't want to spend $60 on them. Spending more than $10 on anything just FEELS like burning money to me. But again, these $50 have already paid for themselves for years.


Also, there's the discounts and the one-hour free trials of a bunch of games.

You're right. It isn't. But considering the free games I've played with it, and some of the discounts I've gotten, it certainly is worth it. It's also kind of one of those things that definitely isn't for everybody. If the selection of "free" and discounted games isn't for you, then it won't be worth it. But if you can even get a couple of them, it's worth getting.

was better......this shit is not better!!!
the free demos/games on xbox fucking suck
as a dude coming from the free ps3 online to this, i'm not seeing where the extra value is
i mean unless you play COD 14 hours a day and need the ability to order pizzas and talk to your friends all night then maybe
but for a person that plays maybe a hour a night ...nah

I play an actual PS3 game maybe once a month. I'm mostly on Netflix or firing up my NES to play Tecmo Bowl. I did play the hell out of that Walking Dead game though. I'm replaying it now doing some real bullshit in the game just to see what's up.

It is shotofest right now online. I played Ken/Ryu/Evil Ryu AT LEAST 15 of 20 or so fights just now. Ridiculous. I pretty much want to turn my game off every time the other person selects Ryu. Its gotten that bad for me..I just hate that mofo..I hate the character, the punk ass way most folks play him, the combos Capcom allow him: light SRK --> super Hado --> ultra Hado...I mean...really Capcom? Fuck the fuck off Capcom, and don't start me on the priority of some of his stupidly safe offense. If it doesn't outright win, it probably ties, and you know what's up if you tie with Ryu...that's right, ultra time! And I'm rage killing controllers (plural) via footballish anger spike (again). I'm almost at Latimer levels of damage over here. And don't start me on the 1 combo of doom over and over again characters like Sakura and Ibuki. Or the turtle power niggas. Or Gief's reach. Or...ahhh! All of this = I gotta let it go for a while.

I'm getting PS+ this week for the following:

SFIV AE
KOF XIII
Little Big Planet 2
Infamous 2
Bioshock 2
Ratchet&Clank All 4 One
Pay Day: The Heist

There's a few others I saw but those 7 alone are well worth $50. Of course, that says nothing of the discounts on a ton of other games. I wouldn't play or buy any but the first two otherwise, but then I rarely buy games.

and unlike my misguided opinion on the Windows 8-ish XBOX interface, the PS Store upgrade really is shit.

like... finding add-ons is horrible. it's like people filled in the data through a half-assed Excel spreadsheet.


the UI looks nicer but that's it.

I was trying to find the Uncharted soundtracks, I have no idea where the hell they are now. U3 has like a million add-ons, and you scroll down TWO items at a time, it's ridiculous. I used to randomly browse the PSN to see what was new or what was on sale, now I don't even want to open the stupid thing.

Add-ons are always tucked under the game itself so they're not that hard to find. I definitely thought it was fine (and faster, and you could use the XMB while looking at it) before but I'm not mad at the new version. Search engine was a little stupid initially but the autocomplete is definitely a nice touch and, like with Netflix's app, helps me stumble across some interesting stuff I wasn't specifically searching for.

It's probably been available for a while but I don't regularly visit the store. I will now. PS+ has definitely been worth the dough. Does PS+ extend to the movie section?

generally those Europe-first things tend to come to us late.


I can only hope, anyway. But having just got Machinarium and Psychonauts for a total of $5 I'm good on games for a minute. Plus I've been pecking away at my free copy of Just Cause 2 ever since it came out, still not halfway done it says. And they gave us Mega Man 9 and 10.



I really want to try Sleeping Dogs though. Shame setting up a Euro account would be foolish.

if you were a Plus member a couple months back you could have got Eps. 1 + 2 for free (I didn't, but I bought in before I'd even played Episode 1 on impulse).

The Newest PlayStation Plus Perks Revealed
Plus, get a great deal on a PS+ subscription.
by Colin Moriarty JANUARY 28, 2013

Sony has revealed the newest PlayStation Plus perks for North America. (You can go to our earlier story here for the newest European-centric perks.)

Starting on Tuesday, January 29th, users will be able to download Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PlayStation Vita free of charge. Madden 13 on both PS3 and Vita will be 30% off. And the PSN games Gatling Gears, Section 8: Prejudice and Greed Corp will all be 50% off.

Additionally, Sony has announced that if you purchase a new one-year PlayStation Plus subscription between now and March 4th, you will get an extra three months free of charge (for 15 months total). Keep in mind that subscriptions can be stacked, so you don’t have to wait until you’re about to run out if you want to take advantage of the offer.

Sony also revealed an interesting statistic that we’ll leave you with in closing. For a one year $50 PlayStation Plus account in 2012, users could have saved as much as $2,472 on free and discounted games, DLC and more. That’s nearly 50 times the cost of the subscription.

with windows 8 and the surface struggling i wonder how important the game division is to m$ right now
some cats done pumped damn near $500 into xbox live (lol), not sure the value will be there next gen if all you're getting is in game chat and seeing what ur friends are doing
on top of all that Sony is expected to get to market first which might swing the pendulum
tho we know xbox has no qualms about rushing a defective product to market in order to say 1st! so not sure how much stock to put into that right now

While trust me it sucked (cause I had to do it two or three times in this gen)...it was pretty cool how easy they made it in to trade in for a replacement console...no questions asked.

Better then when my old PS2 broke and I had to fake return it at Target to get it replaced, lol.

64. "The emphasis should be more on the per dollar value. "
In response to Reply # 63


  

          

The idea of it saving all this money is true, to a degree. I've saved about $100 because I would have bought several of the games I've downloaded for free. It also allows me to play a ton of games I probably wouldn't have paid for, so it's not saving me much in that regard.

So while I agree it's misleading to say you've saved $2500 or whatever, that's still an amazing dollar value.

In response to Reply # 59


  

          

bought a new 500 sata laptop hard drive
took my 1tb fat 32 formatted external hard drive and connected to my ps3
ran the ps3 backup utility to back up everything to the external
took the ps3's stock hard drive out and replaced it with the new 500gb joint
reconnected the external hard drive and ran the restore feature
any games that didn't come over, I just went to my downloads list on the ps store and re-downloaded

that's it. though now I'm down to about 100gb of space on that 500gb drive.

Some game saves are restricted when it comes to copying like Street Fighter 4. If you have PS Plus, I'd recommend using the cloud feature to back up your game saves. I wish they had that 4 years ago. Would've saved me some heartburn.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/03/sleeping-dogs-free-for-playstation-plus-users

Sleeping Dogs is one of the great sleeper hits of the entire console generation (get it?), and if you’re a North American PlayStation Plus user, then you’ll be pleased to learn that the open-world sandbox game will be completely free beginning on May 7th.

Word comes from the PlayStation Blogcast, which also revealed that Pinball Arcade, Knytt Underground and Vita’s BlazBlue will also be free at some point during the month of May.

glad it's finally over here.

I hated Spec Ops honestly, it just stunk so much as a game to me that I didn't even want to play it on Easy. I'm glad they ended up putting it out for free because as the price kept creeping down I felt a growing itch to buy it.

they dont list dates when they will come out but we are getting the following this month

Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Machinarium, Saints Row: The Third, Orc Attack (vita) and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (vita). also the yearly games of Ratchet & Clank All 4 One, inFAMOUS 2 and LittleBigPlanet 2 all go away on june 11th and will be replaced by other games (not sure if 3 or less/more).

just from talk it seems like PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is almost a lock to be one of the new yearly games, there is a rumor uncharted 3 as well

as long as you download it and you are a plus member you can play it and as far as i understand if you stop plus and then get it again you can redownload it and play it again. but if you never bothered to download it before it leaves then once its gone you are out of luck.

in fact you dont have to fully download a title some games i think i might want to try out in the future but not use the hard drive space now. so just start the download and after it downloads like at least 1% cancel the download and if you view it it will say purchased and you can always grab it later.

it just has to be a confirmed purchase. As long as you "purchase" the license while it's free, you can download at any time. I got Street Fighter IV the day it came available but didn't download any of it until last month because I just didn't have the hard drive space.

I've got the 250 and it was a real hassle making space, had to delete Liberty City Stories, Street Fighter IV, Just Cause 2 and a few saves.

If you're talking multiplayer only, if I remember right that's an 11GB file.

that's a real bummer though, I was even afraid this might happen because of the Last of Us launching. I don't know why I bought it last week!


I'm just lucky that XCOM was listed as Disc Only during the strongest hype cycle or I'd have probably impulse bought that too.

In response to Reply # 101


  

          

Ratchet and Clank all 4 one

Scott Pilgrim

Family Guy

Little Big Planet

Anything I'm missing? My two littlest (7 and 4) love playing alongside us and so far, PS3 wise this is all i've found. Looking to get LBP: Kartracing when it hits PSN though. Anything else? I miss Gauntlet, young!

108. "Not sure when it releases..."
In response to Reply # 107


  

          

but keep an eye out for the old school Dungeons & Dragons Capcom joints getting re-released: Chronicles of Mystara and something else.

Really fun 4 player beat em ups with different classes to pick from, each with different skills and weapons.

I have a feeling the price could jump with the PS4 launch in the Fall. Dling Infamous 2 and Little Big Planet 2 as I type.

In response to Reply # 109


  

          

It sounds like the next iteration of XCOM will have a greater userbase due to the wonderful service that PS+ has provided consumers.

Sounds like a win win win win for the publisher developer platform and the consumer.

What a fantastic concept.

this was posted on gaf i tried it and it works. i have an 80 gig HD i deleted stuff where i got to 62 of an available 72 gigs. download it and then cancel. then go to your downloads there will be six different uncharted 3 things you need: single player, multiplayer and 2d movies. you can avoid the other three. after you get them you can play the game.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/06/11/playstation-store-update-295/

The Highlights:

Tomb Rader - $20.24

Borderlands 2 - $19.59

Dishonored - $21.59

Walking Dead Season Pass - $5 (If you don't but this for $5 you are really, really missing out. GOTY 2012, easy.)


Also, not PS+ but Persona 4: Golden dropped to $29.99. Heard that was good but I don't have a Vita and still haven't beaten Persona 3 after all these years.

that DAMN fight in the boat where all the cover is shifting and the one tank dude is stalking you around is fucking IMPOSSIBLE on Hard. I might just have to give up and grab this bad boy...or I might just have to wait a few weeks. All I know is on the 250GB drive, Uncharted 3 has GOTS TA GO if I'm gonna install any more games. Kinda makes me rethink my dedication to buying anything on PSN if it's an option.

but they don't have PS3 support on the Mac version, and since I paid VERY little at the time I'm more than ok shelling out more for it with a controller solution. I'm terribly uncoordinated on keyboards.

In response to Reply # 122
Fri Jun-28-13 06:01 PM by Nodima

  

          

any given month there's usually 5 - 7 free games, sometimes those slots are taken by Vita games or there are just a lot of games.

however they are not super-strict about acquiring the games - if you checkout a game while it's free on PS+, it's yours to download whenever you're subscribed to PS+ whether you download it immediately or not. The only restriction is being a current subscriber - if you let it lapse, as I did the past 3 days, you get redirected to the store's subscription page whenever you try to play.

so if you weren't subscribed at the time these games were slotted, no, you can't get them later. Bioshock 2, Just Cause 2, inFamous, inFamous 2, and so on won't be in your IGC if you subscribed today.

but you don't have to DL them right away. you just have to express intent to play. and then they're available forever (assuming you're prepared to sacrifice three+ hours of PS3-power to downloading the game)

Shadow of the Colossus and Arkham Asylum for $5. Not bad at all.

It's good to see PS+ has been expanding the indie games available.

I wonder how much they'll continue to improve things for the PS3 when PS4 comes along.

yep i had to cop arkham for that. even though i beat it and got rid of it on 360 when it came out. playing it now. not sure if ill play through it again but for 5 i had to get it. i might get just cause 2 next week. im pretty sure it was a playstation plus title right before i joined


>I wonder how much they'll continue to improve things for the

not sure but they stumbled onto something good and with the ps4 plus is also bundled to online play which means even more people will have it (although i don't see why people don't already have it) so i think it will continue to be worth it.

In response to Reply # 138


  

          

The point of video recording being free is console owners don't have to buy an online services subscription if they don't want to.

THAT'S A HARDWARE FUNCTION SO IT SHOULD WORK WITHOUT HAVING TO BUY AN ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION.

Don't even get me started on the absurdity of having to pay for XBL in order to use a web browser.

There are over 25 million Xbox owners without live. That number must be higher for PSN. Therefore, THIS SHIT IS A BIG FUCKING DEAL. LoL at selling points of Xbox One being hidden behind a pay wall.

at least when it comes to larger enemies. I've always wanted to do something like that again...but I'm actually playing the HD Remake right now, so

hopefully the word of a pretty empty world and long runtime don't discourage me. I've been scared of RPGs all generation, FF12 was the last one I loved and this looks KIND OF like that too?

also, it's a bit of a bummer I know how the game ends thanks to the Bombcast. But I'd like to see that for myself, it sounds legitimately fresh.

I didn't feel like making a new thread or writing a new review, but I just finished this via Playstation Plus and had some thoughts.

-- At first the shooting feels pretty bad, but by the time you've upgraded your accuracy, damage and health it slowly turns into a really fun shooting game. A lot of the robot destruction made me imagine (what I've seen of) Knack (via internet media) with some true creativity to it.

--So good that most of the distraction moments end up feeling even more boring than they are. I hated all the on-rails car sections, and failed ALL of the random "press O in the purple bar" QTEs 7 or 8 times before landing them.

--A lot of what I was responding to positively weren't objectively good things. The dialogue was terrible, a lot of the direction was frustratingly anime-like in execution and the voice acting was pretty stiff. I often felt like I was playing a Sci-Fi Original or blaxploitation game.

--Still, there were moments of actual brilliance. Most of the Hollow Children designs were great, as were all the scenes involving an exposed A.I. And the game was very smartly paced, even if I could tell early on we were swiftly moving on only to situations more ludicrous than the last. If they'd decided to commit to being an action game rather than an action-RPG, I can imagine a much better overall game being here. The length feels just right for the gameplay, but five-ten hours too short for the failed attempt at building characters or creating player agency.

--This game reminded me of the PS2 era in terms of how it controlled, how I felt confused about certain actions (randomly switching the mantle action to O instead of ^+X, never figuring out remote bombs), how very Japanese the storytelling felt...In a weird way, it felt like a nostalgia play even having never played it before.

--I'd like to see a sequel, but Binary Domain couldn't help but feel like a mimic of its betters (specifically Mass Effect and Blade Runner) and how often it made me laugh at its absurdity didn't always win out over how frustrating a few scenarios were. I didn't expect to breeze through this game as quickly as I did (4 or 5 days, mostly over the last two days) so I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it, but without the robots or the interesting canonical backbone, I'd feel weird recommending this to anyone who likes this style of game but has no idea what "feels like a PS2-era video game developed in Japan with modern western trends super-glued on top in what almost feels like a satire-like fashion" means.

157. "GRID 2 is fucking legit!"
In response to Reply # 147


  

          

Granted, like a lot of games I think my love for it in part stems from the fact I basically only play the big Sony-exclusives and PS+ games at this point, and haven't owned a racing game this entire generation (I really wanted Burnout Paradise for a long while but never pulled the trigger) as a result, but MAN. I loved to play the rally part of the DIRT demo over and over again back when I owned a fatty PS3 and no games, and I think I rented a few of the McRae games, but somehow I forgot how fun Codemasters makes driving cars.

I've heard people complain about how these cars drive but as someone who loves and compares GTA's driving to this (note: GRID 2 is much tighter, but they have a similar philosophy I believe) I was hooked pretty much from race two. The game's not very hard on Normal, I've lost maybe four times through the first two seasons of career mode, but I do come in 2nd-4th fairly frequently on at least one champion's series race so I'm sure it's about to ramp up in China.

I get that this wouldn't be a car game without a bunch of good-looking cars, but at each level it seems like one car is clearly better than the rest, so I don't feel very encouraged to change cars around. What I REALLY like though is how different all the cars feel. I pick the BMW 3 Series over the MB E-Class for VERY specific reasons even though on paper and physically they appear nearly identical in-game.

And the way physics works itself out over the terrain is spectacular. Again, other than random time with some demos, free game trials and friends' houses I can't think of a racing game I've played regularly since Gran Turismo 3, so that colors it. But I really can't remember a game that cared so much about the how, where and what of a race course. The little dips and rivets in the road coming in and out of turns, the way different cars' suspension and handling accepts and reacts to the subtle imperfections of the road, especially at 130mph+ speeds into rapid deceleration, is just awesome. There's not much incentive to try out all the different cars, but hitting a corner I've come to know well in a brand new car gives me a little rush I can't really describe.

Lastly, it's beautiful, but being a car game it'd almost be a surprise if it wasn't. They've done a good job of making you feel powerfully in control of some really great cars, and toe the line between arcade racer and sim perhaps better than anything I've ever seen, mostly having Need for Speed: Underground and Gran Turismo as my comparisons. At its core it's just a dumb, pretty real-cars, no-weapons Mario Kart essentially, tapping then brake just right to get the best drifts around large corners and jumping to the head of the pack. But there are enough subtle mechanics going on to suck in people looking for a slightly more nuanced driving game, and again even though I haven't found it especially difficult, I also think their (seemingly scripted) driving lines make for a pretty great level of tension as I'm rarely able to get into first place before the penultimate or final lap of any race.

This game is just good dumb fun, and they spice the career mode up with a lot of variety between each race and season so it's hard to get bored. I'd definitely say anyone with PS+ should grab a copy of this as quick as you can, though.

they had a killer bundle for both 2 and 3 GOTY editions for just $40 total on PS+ earlier in the spring, and I think at one point the original was like $5 or something? Finally had a chance to play all of them over the summer and it was a great thrill ride, though I found out I'm one of the few people that thought the games got exponentially better each time around. I hate the last couple hours of both 1 and 2 so much, man. Notched them down to Easy to finish, unlike 3 which I loved so much I immediately went back and played it on Hard.


edit: also, compared to how elegant the digital Last of Us is (only game on PS3 that offers a compressed installer, and only PS3 game that allows the game to begin before it's 100% installed...around 65% I think) it was pretty amazing how bonkers the UC3 stuff is. Gigabytes and gigabytes of language files, the cutscenes are a separate 20GB file from the main game, multiplayer is a separate file because of the whole free-to-play thing...buying UC3 digitally will fuck a PS3 hard drive up QUICK lmao.

I've been monitoring Bio: Infinite for a while now, waiting till it drops to $5 to scoop it up, but I've only seen it dip as low as $7.50 on the various download sites. On top of that DMC just hit Steam's daily deals right now at $12.49, so the speed at which PSN is putting out these free games is mighty impressive indeed.

I don't imagine Sony would ever advertise this way (due to the roster changing every week among other things), but they could sell a PS3 with a three-month pass to PS+ as a bundle and say, "Here's your PS3 with GRID 2, Bioshock Infinite, Dyad, Borderlands 2, Devil May Cry, Brothers, Binary Domain, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, included at no additional charge once you've activated your PSN account."

It's a bit of a shame the marketing on PS+ isn't going even harder, I still haven't met anyone in real life who's heard of the service (other than my one friend with a PS4, who hadn't realized he needed it to play online when he bought it and sold his PS3 towards the PS4 so isn't currently seeing the benefit).

I bought a ps3 that was bundled with a one year PS+ membership. It was back in February, don't know if they are still doing it. I think the box did advertise the games that were currently available(little big planet 2 and 2 others)

Did you do 5400 RPM? It seems like advice varies on whether I should stay with that speed or if going faster is a good look. The longer I think about it, the more ridiculous I'm thinking about going. Certainly 1 TB should be enough to carry me through all of the PS+ downloads I've cycled through and the last ones that are coming before they taper off, right?

AKA I think I'm gonna cop a hard drive and get my swap on. This will be my first nerdy system activity since I changed my PS2 to a top-loader in order to play the 'last' Fire Pro Wrestling. Of course, they released it in the US a year or so after that, but whatever...I was ballin!

The instructions I've read suggest that I'm copying certain files to a thumb drive, disconnecting the old 120 HDD, connecting the new (500 GB - 1 TB) HDD, and downloading stuff from the network again. Is that about it?

In response to Reply # 174


  

          

that's what Sony recommends and they probably have good reason for it. i don't believe there's any performance boost with 7200 RPM drives anyway.

1 TB will be more than enough. average game size is like 15GB (early games be like 7 or 8 gigs, late first party games top out around 25 gigs). You can easily put 60 full retail games on a terabyte. that's being conservative. like i said, i got a smaller drive with close to 80 games: half AAA, half downloadable.

if you have an external hard drive larger than 120 (or whatever the size is of the stuff you have on your ps3 now), you can transfer everything over to your new HDD without having to re-download.

... after reading here about the free games for the ps plus membership and all the games you can download the 500 gig hd from the ps4 now resides in the ps3. Backup process was easy peasy. Youtube and Google helped plenty with all of it.

>It's a great system and has so many games I haven't touched.
>Got back into Infamous 2 just yesterday.

I've restored all of the stuff I had on my 120 gb hard drive. I'm now dl'ing a grip of games I had on my system at one time or another. Shiiiid...this is probably the best library of games I've ever had on 1 system. And I missed stuff cuz I wasn't smart enough to just grab free/discounted stuff when it was available and download later.

A few more notes on hard drive swap that I didn't see everywhere:
- from a computer...download the latest system software update in a folder called PS3/UPDATE on a thumb drive or a fat32-format external hard drive. You'll need it when you start the system with your brand new hard drive.
- after you're up an running with your files after doing a system backup --> restore, be sure to activate your system (psn, account management, system activation) so you can play ps+ games, access your cloud saves, etc.
- until you switch out, don't pull a me...get discounted/free games in the ps store even if you don't/can't dl them right then. The store keeps a list of games you've purchased so you can go back to that list and easily dl stuff later/again/etc. I'm doing this right now and realizing that I could've had even more ish right now.

Jimaveli: still a little gamer left in me.

So far I don't recall one free game on Xbox Live being less than 3 years old. Majority are like 4-5 years old and pretty unwanted games at that. Damn shame. Sony is getting it right with this.

I can download these games for free, install and then have them forever?

And the free games offered changes every month? Do the old ones disappear? Like if I miss the November games, am I out of luck?

as long as I'm a subscriber, I get to download all the current and past games offered through PS+?

What if I download and install them then cancel PS+? Not that I would but what happens to games after you install them?

once you download them or add them to your cart in the online store they are yours as long as you subscribe to ps plus. if you subscription runs out you can't play them until you renew. you cant download past ps+ games if they are gone they are gone and you missed out.

they used to make it a surprise from month to month basically and I sort of dig the suspense.

DmC is this week, so I might guess they hold off on Infinite for the last week of the month.

because where I'm sitting, Bioshock Infinite is listed at $40 on PSN, Free for PS+ members. On the Free Games sub-header of PS+, it is listed as the second game, between game of the month DmC: Devil May Cry and Borderlands 2.

I never played Far Cry 3 but I s'pose you don't have to to get into Blood Dragon, right? I'm looking hard at that, Enslaved (it's been getting compared to Naughty Dog games for so long I got to check it out at $5), Wolf Among Us season pass, and maybe Thomas Was Alone or Crysis 3.


edit: actually I think I got Thomas Was Alone in a humble bundle to get Hotline Miami on my Mac, I just have a hard time remembering because I only use my computer to play Civilization IV, Hotline Miami and emulators.

I understand the 4 just launched so they won't be able to have many titles to give out until the developers start churning out product so it's understood in that aspect. Overall the subscription is good to have for the ps3/vita stuff you can cop.

and the first half of my first year of PS+ was still pretty light overall in terms of great Instant Games, at the time it was more about the Free Trials and discounts.

202. "I hope Microsoft changes that once more people adopt the X1."
In response to Reply # 201


  

          

But I honestly think this is part of a brilliant strategy by Sony... it's been long established that the PS brand is stronger overseas, but the massive US market is owned by Xbox.

So what's the best way to combat this? Accessible hardware, cheaper price point, and more games. And a better emphasis on online features (that Gaikai acquisition is looming large now). They were never going to compete with the dominant multiplayer marketshare Xbox enjoys (and what appeals most to Western gamers) through conventional means so they're competing elsewhere: with more games.

It's easily the most tangible sense of value to the consumer if they can constantly have new content with just the console and a PSN subscription, and cheap (or free) content is a big reason why PC gaming is actually on the rise right now... Steam gained a staggering 10m new users in the past 3 months (a major 15% increase).

Ultimately, we're all gamers, and the more games we have in our hands the happier we are. Good on Sony for dropping all their old stodgy traditions and embracing that fully.

It's been on my wishlist for a while now, but I just don't have time to play all these games on my backlog.

I fucking love these rogue-like/procedurally generated games... this is where (IMHO) the truly innovative gameplay nowadays is coming from.

207. "oh man, I waited too long this week."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I guess the network gets a little screwy on update day. I had Enslaved and the Wolf Among Us season pass in my cart all week along with Limbo and Blood Dragon until this morning when I decided to drop the latter two, but I had to add funds to buy the first two so after putting $20 on my wallet it erases the two games from my cart.

Luckily when I went to the online store it let me add the Wolf Among Us pass for $13.49 still, but the web store tells me I'm not authorized to purchase either of the other three and the PS3 keeps telling me there's an error. I still have $5 in my wallet so I know it hasn't taken any money, but still a real bummer. I've always heard really interesting things about Enslaved.

I wonder if anything good will come up for $5 or less soon.

216. "Just played through Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Yeah I know I'm late but it was free and I heard about how good it was. Although kinda short I absolutely loved it. Even made a brotha kinda emotional. The controls were great seeing as you control two people at once. This was just all around enjoyable.

On another note. I'm a xbox person, just my system of preference. However, the deals on PSN shits on live in every single way.

Gonna play through a few things I've missed and it offers it to me free just for being a PSN subscriber. In about a year or two I hope they offer up many great titles on the PS4 as well.

In response to Reply # 227


  

          

when it comes to combat and it fails at that. The controls are wonky and strange. The design and the world are interesting but its all so meh. No wonder this company had to file for the French equivalent of bankruptcy.

Just beat Metro Last Light last night (protip: shoot the wheels) that was fun. Decent story, shooting mechanics and good graphics. I like well made apocalyptic games and 4A games made something cool. Probably won't see another one of these in while because of the situation in Ukraine.

222. "payback 2 question--> also, general game file query"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

RE: Payback 2: Pretty awesome. Would've stayed away but its free, so.... Anyway. I hate not feeling really connected to the game. After starting out in the safehouse, shit has been explained awful poor. Also, living in DC and a map of my hood coming up FREAKED ME THE FUCK OUT guess it just takes place here? Still----> after installing at like 2 am after a night of inebriants this was one of my weirdest game experiences EVER. How do I change guns as well???? Could really use a tutorial. Also, I really miss some Player 2 action, Fuck all this connect to random strangers on the net. The mic system sony has in place is a mystery to me....

A general PS3, question: My 5 year old mistakenly deleted the game save for Lego Marvel SuperHeroes from the HD. I have the overnight auto game save thing uploading to the cloud but how do I get it back?? We were 80.1% done we are both rather devastated, I dont want this to be my kids personal metroid, I'm like we just gotta do it again....but if I could save us four weeks of bonding time I would so take a shortcut! HELP

Lastly, Kingdoms of Amalur is AWESOMENESS. Not really into RPGs (AT ALL) but this is a right good button masher, fake rpg with overly dorky tones that I appreciate---I could use a horse though! Why the fuck am I walking (I know I could 'Fast travel' but lame) everywhere? Addicted to blacksmithing and alchemy mixing....

so if you just thumbed through that when you first launched the game that could be the problem.

I have no idea what's up with your Walking Dead file though.

w/ the likes of Bioshock Inf, Remember Me, Tomb Raider, and Borderlands 2, it was an offer I couldn't refuse.

Too much awesome I've been putting off for far too long.

I have a fat boy 80 gig that the disc drive doesnt work in anymore. Moved on to my slim one, never had a problem. After moving though, I updated the fat boy thinking games I already downloaded as a Playstation Plus member I could just re-do on the fat boy. But now I cant finish DMC on my slim? I'm like WTF? Is it cuz my email is logged into two PS3s? Even when I log outta the fat boy and go downstairs and fire up the slim I get "This content is expired"

Do I need to call Sony (really not trying to be on the phone for 50-11 hours)?

I thought as long as you were a playstation plus member certain games (if you dl'd them when they were out) would always be playable? Why cant I share b/t my two playstations? Any help would be good cuz my kids are getting on MY NERVES!

In response to Reply # 243


  

          

you should be good. Not sure why it's telling you it's expired. When you login with the same ID that you used to originally download the game with it should extend the expiration date of the game to when your PS Plus subscription is going to end. I do this with my kids right now since between the two of them only my son has PS Plus. What I do is download a game on my son's system and then login with his ID on my daughter's system and download the same game and it has the same expiration date for the content as on my son's system.

Stick it to the Man (PS4)
Puppeteer (PS3)
Skullgirls Encore (PS3)
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 (PS3)
Surge Deluxe (PSV)
Limbo (PSV)


never heard of the PS4 game, have to look it up. Puppeteer looked like a game that's cool to look at for 15 minutes and then annoying as shit the rest of the time. Skullgirls...is Skullgirls. Haven't owned a soccer game since Winning Eleven 8 so I have a soft spot for Pro Evo but even if the basic game stacks up to FIFA still I'm just not sure I want to waste the hard drive space. And I don't own a Vita so the decision to do the Vita version of Limbo instead of PS3 is a bumme, but at least it'll be one of the better games I have stowed away in my account history in case I ever stumble into more money and decide a Vita's what that money's for.
