    Should I buy a PlaystationPlus pass?

    Hello everyone, so I'm Hero Of Kvatch, named after the hero of th legendary elder scrolls game oblivion, and I would like to become a real trophyhunter. Now to do so you need games, lots of games and that costs money, lots of money.

    Now I've seen playstation doing a lot of marketing about 'PlaystationPlus' and that seems super!
    A one year pass for 38 euros and you get over 64 free games to download and lots of extras, but it just sounds too good...
    I mean those games are worth 640 euros if they would all cost 10 and I just have to pay 38?

    So I'm searching around to learn more about this because the PSstore has a lot of "buy now" marks but not much "learn more" and I would appreciate it if some people who are also on this site could help me with some questions

    Is a 1 year pass worth it?
    can I download as much as I want?
    Do I need to buy storage room?
    are there some dangerous things between the lines in the small letters?
    there are probably a lot more questions I have but don't know them right now anyhow thanks to everyone who wants to help

    For me,it is worth it.You get 1 GB of save games for free (which never goes full) and a lot of good stuff for free or discounted.Go ahead mate,you can get whatever you want from it and there are no dangers.

    playstation plus is the best thing ever. it's so good in fact that i have 2 plus accts. 1 US and 1 UK. so i get double the goodies. it's freaking awesome. as long as you have a hard drive big enough to support all the downloads or you get creative with managing your downloads then you'll be fine. there are no dangers and you can download all the free stuff you want. it's really fantastic. like i said it's so fantastic i have 2 plus accts from 2 different regions because they offer different stuff.

    ok then, 1st i think another thanks is in order
    uhm I still have an old 2006 (yes the very first!) Ps3 with 80G and I think that one of these days he'll be full
    still I have a harddrive for uhm "legally" downloading movies that has the capacity of one TB, can I if the time comes copy al my files to that drive and access it when needed?

    if so then from now on call me a PSPlus member
    if not isn't that much of a difference I guess, then i delete the install data and redownload when needed

    I know what I want for christmas

    Yes it's serious because it's an honest question for a person who's never had PS+ before

    To the OP: Hell yeah PS+ is well worth it. On top of everything everyone else said, you can get exclusive access to betas before they go public. I got the PS All-Stars Battle Royale's multiplayer beta thanks to PS+, and I also got into the LBP karting beta thanks to PS+. A good time to get it because who knows what next years lineup of free games will be. This years lineup was pretty damn good (Infamous 2, Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine, LBP2, Bioshock, RE5 Gold Edition to name a few for the NA PS+ subscribers). So, I say go for it man, you won't regret it. Also, when your subscription is about to expire, you can add money to your PSN wallet via PSN cards, and you can renew your subscription with that.

    Yup, for 38 Euros (50 USD) it's a steal, not only for the free games, but even some of the discounts. The best part, it's not JUST for PS3 games, but for the whole lot of VITA games they have out free, like Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

    Looks like you need my help--Again...

    You should really get it. There some games that I didn't want to get because of the high price for them but when I had gotten the PS+ subscription I was able to get those games that I wanted to play for free. Some of the free games trash for most people but enjoyable for the rest. If you ever need to reboot your PS3, then you put all your files on the cloud. You get free avy's also.

    I am going to give you some advice. YES buy it. Believe me some of the stuff they put free and if it's really good it can get you to buy the DLC/Add-ons. For instance I discovered how good The Walking Dead comic game is despite my avoid almost anything with an license type of mentality. Still the storage space is tops along with the free stuff for PS 3 and PS Vita is an bonus.

    I was skeptical at first but I simply can't believe the constant stream of free games. Quality ones also, not the crap throwaways.

    I'm gonna say no, but only to the exact question you asked. Don't buy a PS+ Pass. Buy a normal $50/$38 euros card, or whatever, with PSN credit. Redeem that, THEN buy PS+. There have been a lot of promotions lately for "buy X amount, get X amount back", and using the PS+ pass doesn't count. So, in my opinion, people should get in the habit of buying the PSN credit codes rather than ever bothering with the PS+ codes.

    But to your general question, yeah... if you just want more games to get more trophies from, then PS+ will set you up.

    I should already know this but I'll ask anyway

    My brother and I have separate accounts on PS3. If one of us buys a PS+ Pass, can we both play the games? Also do you need a credit card for the pass?

    The game is downloaded to the hard drive then yes you can swap back and forth between accounts. Just like game sharing. If you have a friend who shares his account info you can download all of their games as well.(highly recommend not doing this unless you actually know the person and they are trustworthy)

    I prefer to just get the 90 day pass and when it runs out decide if there has been enough new content added before l buy my next 90 day pass , if you also own a Vita it is a no brainer .
    Would like to thank Google and snipping tool for my amazing sig + avatar
