PS Plus 8/23 and 8/30 Update, hmm!

2 replies 31 views Edited Aug 17, 2011

First off yes its a copy & paste from the Blog, occasionally I & others do this for those, & believe me there are many, that don't look at or know where the Blog is.

For what its worth my thoughts are as follows:

BETA Acces for R3 - Good / AC - I never got into this series, but good for those that like it.

Mini's - Oh goody more Mini's!

Free LBP Dynamic Theme - This could be ok I suppose.

PSN Play Discounts- Sorry but this PSN Play thing isn't appealing to me at all right now.

Discounts- Wakeboarding again/still, come on! Also $1.04 for the Motorstorm bundle, where did they get the 4c from lol!

Avatars- Oh for the love of God, more Street Fighter Avatars, purlease no!

If this is all there is for this particualr update then I'll admit I'm a little disappointed, but hopefully there's some more, 'fuller' details to come.

well heres another month i will not get ps+ - like i said picking and choosing my 3 month scrip saves me alot of money - so far in a year i have had 2 scrips (and technicaly refunded for one). But in all honesty if this is all they can offer us. i dont see myself coming back at all - i would rather pay full price for a game now and then then be a member of what was once so promising. When plus first came out they gave us some cool stuff - wipeout - a full game with a plat trophy, avatars, themes, ps1 games. and now just 1 year in seems there scrapeing the bottom of the barrell, re-runing discounts they gave us before

ill shut up now

OK, I'll be the first to say it ... awful, just plain awful.  I know the big draw is going to be the betas; everyone wants betas ... at least everyone was bitching once upon a time because they originally signed up for PS+ just to get invited to betas.

At this point I am surprised that Sony just doesn't give us Wakeboarding for free just to piss off everyone that has bitten at the perpetual discounts that are always on offer.  I'm sure Sony will say - "... but so many new PS+ memebers have missed out on a Wakeboarding discount that we just had to offer it once again ..."  Fuck that; please rotate this one off the PS+ content list.
