*Cough* 10 months! ... Anyways, you got me there in the beginning of your post.

FIVE DAYS.  I have had my PLUS FIVE DAY, and I have already recouped in value of games the asking subscription of $49.99 for a year.  Can't wait for what is next, excited.

The U.S. playstation plus subscribers are getting shafted when compared to the EU.  The same games should be offered to both communities.  The EU is receiving 2 full retail games in October when the U.S. is receiving 1 psn GAME!!  This is ridiculous.  Why is the U.S. plus community getting shafted in this manner.

I say, the US plus members Boycott Playstation Plus and do not renew our subscriptions.   I am not the only U.S. Subscriber that feels this way.  

So, come and join me in the fight for equality of goods and services!  It is time to show Sony that the consumer is still in control.


LOL.

 

I have been a PlayStation Plus Subscriber since day one & remain so to this day, i am also a very happy PS Plus Subcriber, I will not be joining you in your one-person fight, but thanks for asking!


Right on BRIT.  I was wondering when you would get in on this.

 

I just joined, and love it so far.  We can't worry about what other countries are getting.  Besides, we haven't seen what October will have yet either.

 

Keep carrying the torch BRIT.

Thanks Moble.

 

I could have gone into some long spiel with the OP but decided to be short, sweet & to the point.

 

I have always been a supportre of Plus as a whole, are there some things they could improve?, yes of course, it's still a relatively new service & as such it's still evolving & changing, the increase in cloud storage was very welcomed by many, including myself, I'd like to see more avatars available, I'd also like to see some kind of "trinket" for say long-standing members, say a 1 or 2 year member avatar, so is it perfect?, no, will I argue for more improvemnents?, yes, are some of the games offered always what I want?, no, does the UK/EU get "better" games than the US?, that's subjective, if you go to the UK/EU Forums you'll see them complaining that the US gets the better games, the grass as I have said before is not always greener, but you know what, it's a bloody good service & Sony deserves to be lauded for their efforts in making Plus what it is today.

yep; I agree that Plus can always improve and always encourage people to voice their opinions on it so we know what to take to the top. Of course, not everything can change, but they key items that we can move the needle on, the Community team here will always work to make happen.

If you dont like it just cancel. No one wants to hear you cry like a spoiled brat because you dont get what you want. PS+ is a great service And I may not be interested in every game that they post FOR FREE! I am greatful that they give anything. I have been a xbox gold subscriber for 6 years and havent recevied a thing from them. Grow up.

I'm not sure if New Zealand falls under EU But it doesn't matter what games I get, that's just a bonus. I got Plus for the themes!

I've had PS+ for almost 2 years now, and I am more than happy with it.  Sure, not every game is a winner, I delete more than I keep I'd say.  And there have been a handful of games show up I already owned.  But the good games I've gotten (and bad ones I might have paid for but didn't have to waste my money to find out) have all more than made up for any disappointments.  Add auto updates, trophy syncing, auto download finishing/installing, cloud storage and auto game save storage, and I'm a happy gamer!

 

Not to mention it's finally coming to the Vita!  I cannot WAIT to see what is in store for November on my Vita!!

Not going to lie, if the EU is getting retail blockbuster's such as RE5, Dead Space 2, and RDR, that is a bit un-balanced. We get stuck with SCEA first-party titles (mainly family titles) and games that really didn't sell too well. I'm not saying I am going to boycott PS+, because that never works anyway. Its like those idiots who start petitions for games and try to get the developer to change something. Smiley Indifferent

Although I will say, if you are part of the 'Welcoming Committee' and/or if you change your text color every post from default just so you get noticed, then of course you're going to side with Sony. Go figure.
