Yea, what are you talking about exactly?

 

If you're referring to the recent extended maintenance, that affected everyone, not just Plus Subscribers.

If the maintenence cycle goes without flaws, usually a day or two a year (usually doesn't last more than a few hours).  Apparently in the recent maintenence, there were more serious issues found than they anticipated, which is why it was extended by several hours.

 

PSN Maintenence does not affect the ability to play offline games, and does not always affect online play, either.

Your statement is false, purchased games & discounted ones are yours to keep for ever whether you have a current subscription or not.

 

However I hate to break it to you JFK but that's what subscriptions services basically are, you pay you get you don't you lose, much like Netflix, you pay your $8.00 a month you get to watch movies, you pay your $4/5.00 a month you get to play games.

thats why i dont subscribe to anything beyond my basic cable internet phone package. If someone pays for somthing it should be theirs another reason i wont buy anything from the PSstore. It violates consumer rights! Amazon's kindle got sued by states attorney generals for violateing consumer rights.

Awesome. But that's Amazon. This is Sony. And Sony hasn't been sued, so you have no point.

I may be wrong now, But when I was Plus+ you can play them forever unless you delete them after your subscription runs out!

That's for Free & paid games!

Untill todays updates, I really wasn't a Plus+ fan myself!
