How do I purchase a Free PS+ game?

1 replies 588 views Edited Dec 21, 2012

I'd like to purchase Little Big Planet 2 for the nicely discounted price of $13.99, but it seems I'm not able since it's free for PS+ users.  I don't plan on being a Plus user for much longer, and I'm afriad I'll miss out on the discounted price.

Assistance appreciated.

There is nothing that you can do, except to create another PSN account (you can have as many PSN accounts as you like), and purchase the game with the other account that is not a Playstation Plus subscriber.  Once LBP2 is installed on the PS3, any user profile can play it.  Not just the one for the account that purchased the game.  The Playstation Store won't allow you to buy a regular license for a game that is in the Instant Game Collection, if you are a Playstation Plus subscriber.
