While I really enjoy the PS+ service, I do agree they missed a great opportunity to “up” the service, lack of thought on their part.
I’m not really pissed off about it, but certainly PS+ users being invited to the beta would have a been a good nod to customers, and may have had some of the people who are upset about the service a little more pleased with their PS+ purchase.
For those of you that are just going to say "stop complaining", leave as I am complaining. Sony (of America at least) Ripped us off with playstation plus. Europe got LBP for free, just for buying it. We get unfufilled promises. A first party beta rolls out and they randomly, yes RANDOMLY send out invites, knowing that tons of people have multiple accounts. The reason I bring this up? Its not logical for someone who has Playstation Plus to make multiple accounts after buying Plus. Therefore they likely would have more people that they sent invites to join the beta. I definetly regret buying Plus, they give us crap games like Critter Crunch. Even if they pull some awesome game out of their corporate ass at the last second, I'm not resubscribing. What games I buy from PSN, I'll choose for myself, whether or not I get a dollar or two off, I dont give a crap. I'm not resubscribing to this garbage ever again.
We, the US got 3 months extra on top of the 12 months Subscription, just for buying it!
What unfulfilled promises are you referring to, if its the Dynamic Themes & Avatars then I agree 100%, we haven't had any of those for a looooong time!
im so pissed too... i have super stardurst HD and bought all add ons for it, im also ps+ user and no beta for dead nation... whats wrong with sony? as far as i know they said ps+ users will get access to betas etc...
