the 30% - 70% discounts make it pay off by themselves.  Often at least 30% on release day, and instead of YOUR 20% off weekly sales, we get 50% !   It adds up fast - just got Section 8 Predjudice and all dlc ($25-$30) for $12.

So do the hundreds of dollars in free games, addons, dlc, themes, avatars, etc.

Even the beta invites alone are worth it if you like that kinda thing.  Two Assassins Greed betas, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, DC Online, and lots more.  Personally I find these fun.

Automatic Updates & gamesynching and LOTS more.

I'd probably pay $50 for each of these features seperately and be very happy!

Really like digging around every week for all the free goodies, creates a nice lunar-like breathing cycle I can set my watch to.

if all you care is content then buy it..but if you're looking for a real service that improves online gaming then it is not worth it

4 me idc about it. what am going 2 get free themes & avatars ? am not fond of their mini games or n their discounts bcuz i dnt bye much thing from the store 2 b honest. so it depends on the person him/her-self. f u like 2 buy much things from the store then go 4 it otherwise u might consider it waste of money.

AM GOOD BUT NOT THE BEST

I just purchased a one-year subscription a week ago.  Liking the Marvel Pinball and playing some classic PS1 games.  Figure for $4 a month why not?

That is exactly the way I looked at it going in, only my initial cost was something like $3.33/month (12+3 free).  When I renewed, I had the $10 voucher for buying too much shit on the PSN store in Oct, so I got PS+ for $40, which is $3.33/month.  As an added bonus, I received JP for free.  Really hard to beat those deals.

BTW - If you are enjoying Marvel Pinball, check out my Marvel Pinball PS+ boosting thread.

Re: Is getting playstation plus worth it?

Ok I play COD for xboxlive, I'm thinking of purchasing a PS3 and COD4-CODMW3 since those are the only console games I'm truly interested. I'm trying to figure out if I have to purchase PS+ to get the DLC for these games, or if I can just use the free network. I don't care about themes and avatars since I make those already and I like messing about with open software. Xboxlive has just become to greedy I feel, I'd rather not spend the money just to play online and use my already paid for netflix accounts.

2 Questions

1= Do I need PS+ to get DLC for Call of Duty games.

2= Will my console update when needed without paying for PS+ or do I have to do manual downloads.

Thanks and have a wonderfull game

Ps+ is completely optional for everything. And no you do not need ps+ for dlc. Ps+ Only effects some free games and game discounts in store. And your able to upload game save data online(best for Singleplayer gamers)

Treat me nicely and i will return the favor Smiley Wink
