    Playstation Plus questions

    Heya everyone,
    i'm a PS-Plus member and i like it!
    I like the free games and the discount on games in the PS-store.
    I've been a plus-member quite a while now and downloaded much games,
    this brings me to some questions, i hope you can help me out here,
    since i can't find the answers here or on the official Playstation site.
    TIA and here are the questions:

    1. Where can i see how long i've been a plus-member?

    2. What happens to my downloaded games if my Plus-account expires?

    3. Will i receive a notification or something before my Plus-account expires?

    4. What if i buy another year of Plus, will it be added to my account, or will i lose the time left?

    I hope anyone can answer these questions for me, it would really help me out
    and maybe others too.
    greetz, Ricardo

    1. An easy way to see how long you have is to buy a mini then see the how many days to expiry.
    2. You lose games you got for free, games you bought with discounts are kept.
    3. I can't answer if you get a notification.
    4. The days are added on but you will have to delete the free games and re download them with the new expiry date.

    That seems to be a pain in the ass and I'm getting PS + next month

    Not really they are all added to the top of the download list ,so it does not take long to find them.

    well thank you very much, sammingo.
    that only leaves question 3 now:
    3. Will i receive a notification or something before my Plus-account expires?
    BTW, your answer on question 4 got me shocked! (pretty unfair imo)

    You don't have to buy a mini - just check the expiration date on one
    of the free games you have now. Proud plus subsciber from the first day.

    Any game you purchase with your plus you keep. However free games expire when the plus runs out..which kinda sucks.

    Maybe, Dunno. For all details the playstation site should answer all of your questions though.

    2. Many people say that you lose the games but when my month of PS+ expired I kept streets of rage 2, sonic the hedgehog and another game I can't remember right now

    Hmmm, that is a little annoying if true. My year, plus my 6 months free are coming up in December and I have a re-occurring membership, so I'm hoping that it just tacks another year to that without me needing to do anything.

    Nightmare, whether they go to the top of the download list or not that's ridiculous.
    Do Sony ever really think things through properly when they are preparing to launch things?!
