Free PS+ Games on Disc?

4 replies 260 views Edited Apr 10, 2013

I've been a PS+ member for awhile now and have enjoyed the service since it started. However, I'm starting to wonder....if I continue to be a member and receive the free games, how soon will my system run out of space to store the downloaded content?

I'd like to see an option for PS+ members to receive their free games on a disc. Has anyone heard if this could be possible? In the works?  Etc?

Just delete games you don't play anymore if you start to run low on space.  You can always re-download anything you delete later if you decide you want to play it again.

 

There is no way Sony would be able to deliver PS+ content via disc, since your content expires when your subscription does.

I agree with the above poster, no PS Plus games are going to be on disc, deleting some data is the way to go, either that or a bigger HDD.

Thanks - I see your point. I forgot the fact that I could redownload titles at a later date. Hopefully the PS4 and PS+ are able to make this point moot.

And even if I'm a member for a looong time, say 10+ years, am I really going to still want a copy of Infamous2?

It won't matter.  No PS3 games will run on the PS4.  You might be able to eventually run them via cloud streaming, but there is no guarantee that you will be able to do so for free if you purchased the PS3 version of the game; or that Infamous 2 will be one of the games available.
