    PS+ Game Library -- Full Access?

    Hey guys. Picking up a PS+ subscription tomorrow from Best Buy. I am aware that + members get new free games every month but are the titles that are free from the past couple of months still available? For example, tomorrow once I get my membership can I still download Battlefield 3 or that Star Wars game for free?

    No, most titles are only available during that particular month, but whatever you get for free is yours to play as long as you're a plus member.

    Sorry pal, I think BF3 just got pulled off the IGC. Some titles last a full year (LittleBigPlanet Karting, Uncharted 3, and XCOM), but most other titles only stay free for a month or two.

    Well that is a huge bummer. Oh well. I guess I should have gotten onto the bandwagon a lot sooner.

    How can you tell which will be free and which won't be?

    I usually only get short term memberships and want to utilize them to only get games I care for.

    I am actually stoked on Hitman and trying my hand at that PSN game. But yes, I am getting a 3 month membership to focus on whatever games come out for the next 3 months on top of my current library.

    From what I gather, you will be able to play the game again since you reactivated your + account.

    Anything you downloaded while having plus should stay in your download list, so check there for it

    Yeah, I noticed they were still in my download list, I just reckoned they would say time limit had run out, if they had came off the PS+ menu lol . This news makes plus even more of a great deal

    My plus membership lapsed at one point after I got it back up and running I was able to fully access every plus title I had previously downloaded so you should be fine.

    Been a member for a year now and I love the service. Some months may not be as good if you already own the games, but 5$ a month is a steal to me.
