Re: Rate Playstation Plus (members only please)

Jun 19, 2011

Questions I Did Answer

1. As far as the PSP content goes there should be an option after the window closes to get the game free (assuming you flagged it as free) to buy at a large discount, some people like myself do not mind paying a couple bucks to ensure that its mine forever if I find myself playing them alot.

2. As for discounts, maybe you should add a make your own bundle kind of bonus, i.e. 10% if you buy all 10 addons available, or 25% off if you buy the game and the addon packages. (Not those specific percentages, but you get the idea where I am going.

3. I didn't own my PS3 Long enough to give this full weight on the final verdict,

4. I didn't own my PS3 Long enough to give this full weight on the final verdict,

5. This is most definately something you should do with any games that are more than 9.99 on PSP and PS3 in my honest opinion, demos should be offered from the same page as any game the player doesn't own as well to give DL size options for Plus Members, and just the standard size demo from the buy game page. This trial method lets the player see what they are getting so they make more informed buying decisions.

(Part of why physical game stores do so well is that the customer feels like they saved a bunch, true or not, and their decision was as informed, opinion or not, whether they are shut ins or lively fellows that ask everyone and shop around. This leads hesitant buyers back because they feel that you have helped them decide if the price is right.)

6. Length of Full game trials Depending on the content maybe change it to 15-30 minutes played time or 60 minutes from first boot. Maybe give them a choice first run to allow them to decide themselves.

(Think like the Matrix, The illusion of choice offers alot more than one person can put into words. Humans like to choose, even if they have the same result or even a similar path, choice makes people buy more, choice makes people feel an illusive control that may or may not exist.)

7. I didn't own my PS3 Long enough to give this full weight on the final verdict,

8. Overall satisfaction with Plus? Yay and Nay, ask me again in 6 months once the air settles and the lemmings quiet their chirps for help with the welcome back free game issues you guys solved in video and text form for both systems in 7 languages that I saw.

Questions you "could" answer but are not yet qualified or experienced enough to give an honest and fair opinion about just yet.

1. What do you like most about Playstation Plus?

2. What do you like least about Playstation Plus?

3. What changes would you make personally? ( remember this is a business, think of it as your running the show

1. 7

2. 7

3. 10

4. 10

5. 2 the games are pretty old. you want to give out a game trial, how about something a bit more recent?

6. 10 60 minutes is plenty for a trial

7. 9

8. 9

1. definitely the beta access. the exclusive content like that Playstation Rewards beta they hd a while back, and of course, the free games and game content (Stacking, Sam & Max series, Streets of Rage 2, Killzone 3 Steel Reign map pack, etc)

2. overall, i'm a fan of the service. i'll very likely renew when the time comes to do so. however, as far as my least favorite aspect about Plus, i'd have to say its the "uncertainty" of the relatively new service. many of my friends who are Plus subscribers have had issues with game expiration dates not updating after renewal, the service renewing even with Auto Renewal or Autommatic unding turned off, etc.

3. i'd like to see an offering of more current games in the game trial lineup. what was the most recent one this month? Ghost Recon 2? Really?!

I want Sony to get some real quality feedback from its Playstation Plus members so please serious posters. Just answer the questions 1 through 10. 1 being the worst, 10 being the best.

1. Quality of Free games (are they good enough?) ___ 0 Old or rubbish

2. Discounts on games your interested in ___ 0 don't care

3. Quality of Free avatars and themes ___ 0 terrible, paid for the Matrix one though it shows wierd symbols but I'll let that slide.

4. Beta opportunities (happy or unhappy with invitations) ___ 0

5. Quality of Full Game trials ___ 0 Could've used a DNF trail or an upcoming Dead Island Trial

6. Length of Full game trials (are you happy with 60 mins) ^ same as above

7. Are you happy with the Exclusive offers? (Uncharted 3 avatar, etc...) 0 not much

8. Overall satisfaction with Plus? 1 I'll give it a one since gold sounds more important but not much is given

Questions you can answer

1. What do you like most about Playstation Plus? Was expecting free movies each week

2. What do you like least about Playstation Plus? The plus part in the name is deceiving

3. What changes would you make personally? ( remember this is a business, think of it as your running the show ) Put stuff that people would actaully want

Simply not gonna copy paste etc. PS Plus is worth it some months and others not so well. I enjoy free avatars and themes. But have yet to come across a free game i didnt already buy or want as of yet. But discounts i have had a few that were ok but not great. Getting Qore has been kinda nice so i can actually see stuff coming out and previes etc. The only thing i would like to improve would be ps+ member discounts applying to everything on psn store, but that would probably raise price of plus. Other than that 7/10

I applaud what your doing here, but I am not sure that this is where Sony goes to get customer feed back. Anyway, here goes

1). 3 -  Very rarely do I find anything that is of interest. Makes no sense to download a game simply because it is free if I am not going to play it.

2). 2 - Again, very rarely do I find anything that is of interest.

3). 7 - I don't dig avatars, but I have gotten some cool dynamic themes. That is about the only thing I get from PS+.

4). 1 - I have never gotten an invitation.

5). 5 - Trials are mostly for dated games although I did wind up purchasing Prototype after the trial except I bought a disc version. It was a lot cheaper.

6). 8 - 60 min is sufficient for a game trial. When you think about it it is really a glorified demo and a good way to drive game sales.

7). 2 - So far nothing exclusive to PS+ has been all that great. Demos a week early? WOW!

8). 5 - Overall PS+ has been a disappointing, underwhelming experience. I will be lucky if it pays for itself by the end of my subscription and I will most likely not be renewing.

If you want to give PS+ members something special, how about some exclusive DLC for first party titles, easier access to betas, earlier and longer access to demos, a Home space, Home items. You know, PS+ only stuff

1. Quality of Free games (are they good enough?)  - Not by a long shot

2. Discounts on games your interested in - Not a single game I'm interested in iz discounted

3. Quality of Free avatars and themes - The Dynamic themes were pretty kewl but the avatars were pure crap

4. Beta opportunities (happy or unhappy with invitations) - If I get invited to the Twisted Metal Beta I may change my tone about PS+ but I sincerely doubt that will happen.

5. Quality of Full Game trials - Full Game trials are R Tarded and not to mention their selections are horrid. Yea I'm gunna wait like 16 hrs for a 8 GB game to DL and Install just so I can get into it for an hr and stop.

6. Length of Full game trials (are you happy with 60 mins) - If they actually offered games I would wanna play no a hr would not suffice (Example offer Portal 2)

7. Are you happy with the Exclusive offers? (Uncharted 3 avatar, etc...) - Exlusive huh thats a funee way of saying crap.

8. Overall satisfaction with Plus? - I wouldn't even pay a dollar a month for this service.

Questions you can answer

1. What do you like most about Playstation Plus? - Theres honestly not much at all 2 like except mayb Sonic 2 I guess that wuz pretty kewl

2. What do you like least about Playstation Plus? - That it suks out loud and it's a rip off

3. What changes would you make personally? ( remember this is a business, think of it as your running the show ) - I do not get thus last question

Re: Rate Playstation Plus (members only please)

1) overall 4. Some games are pretty cool, but most aren't even worth the price of "free"

2) 4. There are a few games I've bought with the discount that I otherwise never would've gotten, but the selection of good games is less than stellar. With Plus, they should maybe offer something like a flat 10% off everything, rather than discounting a handful of games most people wouldn't look twice at otherwise.

3) 2. Don't really care much about the avatars and themes. I definitely won't pay for something like that. There have been a few cool ones, but overall, don't care much.

4) 0. I've been a Plus member for about 5-6 months and the only one I've seen available has been Uncharted 3 which has become available to everyone anyway.

5) 1. A good idea that just falls flat. It takes more time to DL them than you get to play them. The selection isn't even that good. I've either played/have the ones I wanted to or don't give a cr@p about the rest. 1 hour is barely enough time to get the hang of a lot of those games.

6) see #5

7) 3. The exclusive offers are generally kind of weak.

8) 2. I don't see myself renewing it anytime soon unless they really do something worthwhile with it.

Questions...

1) I like the automatic updates the most. (How sad is that?)

2) The selection of games that get a discount is really pretty sad. Most of the "free" games get deleted off my HDD after 30 seconds - 5 minutes of playing them.

3) Offer discounts on EVERYTHING in the store. There are plenty of games I would like to get but I won't pay more for a downloaded version of something I can get significantly cheaper on a disc. (Especially considering how much space some of those games take up.) I would also make it so that any trophies earned during the trials would kick over to a gamer's trophy level.

Re: Rate Playstation Plus (members only please)

Jul 14, 2011

so far, plus has been a ripoff. All I have seen is rehashed games that look like crap on my HDTV.

I bought a subscrition due to the adverts, and that was false advertising. They made it seem like the free games are modern,

and when you buy it, you find out the games are worthless.

I am letting my subscription run out, and selling my ps3 for a 360. sony will not get another dollar from me.

im glad it only took 2 months to figure out what a joke plus is. i feel bad for those who dropped 50 bucks for a whole year.

I would do a chargeback if that was the case. Plus is not worth it if you are not 10 years old, and love playing kids games.

Re: Rate Playstation Plus (members only please)

Jun 22, 2012

Ok Gamers.... Here is my latest review of Playstation Plus. Fantastic!

1. Quality of Free games: This year Playstation Plus has outdone itself. If you have read my reviews last year I was really disappointed AND curious about where Playstation Plus is headed. In 2012 Playstation Plus has outdone itself in the over all quality of games and free content. Here are some examples.... Little Big Planet 2, Far Cry 2, Trine 2, The Simpsons Arcade game, Just Cause 2, Infamous 2 and the list goes on. Good job to the higher ups for allowing this content to be given to us members.

2.Discounts on games your interested in: Wow is all I have to say. I was COMPLETELY disappointed last year in the discounts (especially the first part of the year) because the quality of the games the discounts were given to was games I would rate 3-6 out of 10. Sony Playstation has really amped up the quality of content for these discounts. I'm really happy they have started selling full PS3 games more and if you are a member you know the discounts are really good (better than Gamestop prices!).

3. Quality of free Avatars and Themes: This one I haven't been to excited about other than the Avatars. I really can't give you an honest upfront opinion because I have not really been checking up on these as much as I should.

4. Beta Opportunities: Again I haven't really seen any good oportunities for me to utilize the beta games they provide. However, some of the beta's they have given have been quality and great rated games. So if you want to play the games before they come out you'll love this feature.

5 & 6 Quality of Full Game Trials: Ok the Game trials I'm having to sit on the fence about. The quality of the games are the best. I give it 10/10. Look for yourself.... these games are mostly rated above 7.5 so they are great games. Here is the thing though... 1 hour is really just a taste of something but it doesnt give the full flavor. I would rather rent a game off of gamefly to see if I would buy the game. If they would make it 2 hours I would absolutely be sold because it would give me enough time to see if I really love the gameplay or not. In one hour I might need to use the restroom, phone call, company coming over, etc... So when you start playing the game your one hour starts and doesnt stop.

7. Happy with Exclusive Offers: Playstation Plus in my mind is one whole exclusive membership. Most things that Playstation comes out with Playstation Plus gets it either first or at a discount. So overall I would perfectly rate this.

8. Overall Satisfaction with Playstation Plus: This year has been absolutely great for Playstation Plus members from Feb. to June was absolutely great. I have actually gotten my family and friends to sign up just because I think its definately worth it. Last year was a mediocre year for P.P. but this year I'm sold.

My overall review .....

If you have read my posts you will see I do not take reviews lightly. I'm not rich and I don't have much to spend on games like I did last year because of the economic conditions. Currently I can not even afford Playstation Plus. I believe these reviews will help someone decide if they should spend their hard earned money on something they might/or might not enjoy. So let me tell you honestly if Playstation Plus is worth it.

This year has been Sony's year hands down. They have taken charge and have been offering gamers so much great content that I'm actually proud they have rebounded from their fiasco last summer. Playstation Plus is one of the many things they offer consumers. My rating as of June 22, 2012 is a 10/10 for Quality, Price, and content available for members. I hope this helps and I really would love more and more feedback so consumers know exactly what they are getting because word of mouth is huge in the business world. So run your mouths.....

Thanks!
