Before you get reading this is a new segment that I’ve been wanting to bring to the site in an effort to bring more original content to the site. I do have a video version of Let’s Talk on my personal YouTube channel, but in between work and my microphone breaking I haven’t been able to make any videos in a while. ”Let’s Talk” is a series mostly where I express my opinions about pretty much anything, but the stuff you would see on the site would be about gaming. I would like to make this a weekly segment, but only if I get enough feedback from you guys. So please leave a comment below.
Before E3 2010 rumors were going around that Sony was going to start a new subscription service for the Playstation Network. While the rumors were eventually true many people were concerned that Sony was going to start charging people to be able to play online. Thankfully at E3 2010 Jack Tretton took the stage and announce that Playstation Plus was going to be a membership service that would give users exclusive features, free games, themes, early beta access, full game trials, and avatars.
Read the rest after the jump.
If your a long time Playstation fan like myself you were probably a bit cautious before signing up for Playstation Plus. Qore, which for some reason is still around, was also supposed to offer “premium” features like betas, demos, and discounts. With that in mind I signed up for the 3 month package which was $17.99, so even if the service was bad I wouldn’t be left with a year subscription wondering why I wasted my time.
1 YEAR 6 MONTHS LATER STILL A MEMBER
Now it’s been a year and 6 months and i’m still a member of Playstation Plus. The free games have been absolutely great. Over my subscription I’ve recieved great PSN games like Shatter, Stacking, Zen Pinball, Castle Crashers, and Plants vs. Zombies. Not to metion ps1 classics like Warahawk, Spyro Series, Crash Bandicoot Series, and the Resident Evil, Series. The discounts have also been nice as some DLC and full games get discounts when they release. Features have been added only for plus members like automatic updates, and cloud storage for game saves. I could not be happier with my subscription to Playstation Plus, but the reason why is that I never really got into downloadable games. That said I could also see why a person who downloads games from the Playstation Store regularly would be unsatisfied with the content available. Playstation Plus isn’t for that person, but if you don’t download many games from the Playstation Store it’s a great way to play new games that you probably wouldn’t have played otherwise.
