Plus Content After Expiration

[ Edited ]
27 replies 44938 views Edited Apr 9, 2014

For those of you wondering why you are no longer able to play the games you got on your 30 day trial of plus here is an explanation

 

FREE GAMES ; Any game / DLC you get FREE with plus expires at the same time your plus membership expires. Meaning you will not be able to play these games unless you renew plus, or buy the game. if you go the way of reuping for plus - you can still play the games from your old membership - even if your membership expired - if you deleted the games because you were no longer able to play them - you can find them in your download list and redownload them

 

DISCOUNTED ITEMS;Anything you got from plus as a discounted item you paid for you keep.

 

MISC; All avatars, themes are yours to keep forever.

 

2 FREE GAMES GIVEN OUT AS WELCOME BACK PACKAGE. these are yours to keep forever. They have nothing to do with plus subscriptions (thanks Speedy24xmax) for pointing this out

 

 

 

 

hope this helps and cuts down on new threads asking where the games went.

 

any1 who thinks i missed something or could have worded it better please let us know

 

Mod Edit: Updated label. Click here for more information on labels

Thanks!   ~lovely1rainbow

Nice Post

I was a Bit confused myself... Till someone taught me better.

I was under the impression if you activated the + and then went and got your 2 free games from the Welcome back package when the + expires so will your 2 games but I learned I was wrong...

It doesnt matter those two games from the welcome back is indeed yours to keep even if the + expires...

Thought I would add to your OP

Re: Plus Content After Expiration

Thanks for making the post; definitely the community should know how accesing Plus content works if their subscription lapses, whether it was part of Welcome Back or not. Will keep it as Featrued Content for a while, if not FOREVER =)

Thanks!

This is great to see, if true (I'm going to trust that it is).  I'm always wary about buying the discounted PS+ games, thinking that if I ever let if lapse I'll have to rebuy them again at full price.  I'd even be willing to pay the difference (regular price - what I paid as a PS+ member).  Getting to keep them forever at that discounted price is a great bonus.

And not all of the free items disappear (avatars, themes)?  Another bonus.
