Playstation Plus & expired games

5 replies 1107 views Edited Apr 3, 2013
Does anybody have first hand knowledge about if an IGC game has an expiration date that is sooner than their PS+ expiration, what happens to the game? Does it auto update to show your new PS+ expiration date? Does the game show the same expiration day but allow you to play? Or does it delete the game? (I.E. my ps+ expires 9/14/14, darksiders ends for me June '13)

The expiration date for all free PS+ content, is always the same as the expiration date for your PS+ subscription.  When you renew your subscription, it auto-updates the free content expiration date.

 

*Edit*  Have you run Darksiders since you last added time to your PS+ subscription?  In the past, I had to run each title individually to re-sync with my PS+ subscription, but the last time I added time it resynced all of my content automatically, without needing to run them.

Content does not expire when redeemed. If you download a free game it will appear on your download list and even a year later when you renew your Plus subscription you will be able to play it again. The conditions are you need to have it as a download otherwise the deal is gone and you have a current Plus subscription.

I know it's on the download list in the ps store. But if I downloaded it will it be deleted or the expiration date updates or what?

No.

 

It will still work as long as you're a PS+ user.

 

Also note that even if you let your subscription end, the content just becomes expired and unusable. It can't just delete itself.
