Currently if you already own a game that you got for free via ps+ then you are unable to buy it when it later goes on sale.
Can you please create an option to buy games that are in your PS Plus catalogue for keeps.
For example, most recently I wanted to buy Hotline Miami when it went on sale, but I could not because I had already gotten it for free via ps plus. This is a game I would like to keep beyond whenever my PS Plus subscription lapses.
Don't see why you would need to do this with plus being so cheap but have you tried to delete the free version first? I know on Xbox, if you want to buy a game and it's already installed from disc, it won't let you purchase the digital version until you uninstall. Maybe Playstation works similar?
Some people like to support good games/developers. Perhaps, for whatever reason, people don't want to continue their subscription to PS+.
I agree that they should allow the option.
I thought it was possible beforehand, but I guess not. Maybe I was thinking of the drop-down box that would show the original price and the PS+ Free/Sale-price.

In a way its punishing you for letting your plus run out. I mean id never not have plus as long as its going as good as it is and is required for ps4 but there are a lot who dont want plus so I can understand
At what point does this make business sense for Sony? In their eyes, you should be punished for letting your account run out. That is exactly WHY they have their stipulations in the first place. If they were worried about what happens to you when your account runs out, they would allow you to keep the IGC games forever regardless of + or not.
The developers are already being supported though. Since Sony doesn't own the rights to most of these games, they are certainly paying for them to be in the instant game collection. Further more, it promotes the sale of DLC and future installments from people who would have never bought otherwise.
I already know that devs/pubs receive some compensation for allowing their games to be a part of the IGC. [Which I do not consider free, by the way.]
I don't see why the option would be a bad thing, nor why it is "asinine."
