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.
If this turns out to be the case, I'm definitely going to be canceling my subscription to Plus. It's clear that the quality that once had gone into the service has diminished greatly.
