Wife just got me a Playstation 3 for Christmas. I'm a guy in my early 40s, and it was cool that she got me the Uncharted/Infamous bundle. She also got me Little Big Planet and Journey for cheap. Love them all, and sure many here would get a kick out of my uncoordinated awkwardness with the controller (I am a PC gamer used to keyboard and mouse). I'm saying all this because I did sign up for a free month of Plus to try it out. I like that I got Bioshock 2, and Little Big Planet 2, and Quantum (I love Portal and pretty similar). However, Except for a few games, and seeing what is coming up next month if holds true is a dissapointment. Doesn't make much sense to me as a new subscriber and folks that just got for Christmas. I would have figured best in the early months this year. BTW, just getting online and subscribing to Plus and finding way around the Playstation and network are not intuitive to a noob like me. They could go a long way to improve.
raven6093 - As a fellow early 40+ gamer, welcome to the PS community. I have been with PS+ since day one. It has had some ups and downs; for me recently there have been more downs. With that said, since you are new to the PS3, PS+ is probably a decent service for you because more than likely any games being offered are ones that you will not already own (unless you go on a spending spree).
If you are not sure about keeping PS+, make sure you turn off automatic renewal or auto subscription funding. Or you will re-up as soon as your subscription expires.
