    PS+ question

    Never considered getting PS+ before, but with the nice addition to the free games it looks pretty sweet now. I was just wondering how it works. Do you get to keep the games as long as you subscribe, or do they expire after a period of time?

    depends on the game, but the 12 free that were given out remain active as long as that account is a ps plus member. Once your subscription expires, i believe the games stay there but become inactive and you're unable to play them.

    To add on, if you resub, you can play them again.

    Mostly, you get to "borrow" them while you are subscribed. However, if you do purchase anything at a PS+ discount (other than free) I believe it's yours. It's definitely worth it as the games mentioned today are pretty good along with what they are constantly giving out. One other thing is that some of the games' availability "expires" meaning you can download them for free for however long they're up there, but afterwards, they're usually back to the normal price. Hope that helps

    if you have a game installed from PS+ press triangle on it in the XMB and go to info
    - it tells you how many days you have left before it expires
    - i believe i have some PS+ games that don't have an expire date
    - avatars and themes don't expire (i think)
    - discounted games and DLC don't expire
    - trophies earned don't expire
    - full game trials end/lock after 1 hour of play time
    - keep game data installed and save file and you can pick up where you left-off when you re-subscribe

    All of this is correct. Some of your games don't have an expired date because you bought those PSN games at a discounted price, but not free. The ones that have an expired date are the ones that are free as long as you have your membership. I verfied this because I bought RE4 and Code Veronica when they were 50% off and they don't expire, but my VF5 I just got does.

    You download the games free and can play them as long as your a plus subscriber they expire when you lose subscription and turn unplayable. You can still delete those files while they're unplayable though. Also when you get your subscription back I believe you can play them again. Either way it's a great deal especially this month.

    Another question: if you have 4 days left on your PS+, and buy a 3 month suscription, you have 94 days left or only 90?
    “Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?”
