Re: Rate Playstation Plus (members only please)

Apr 14, 2011

I see people complain about the repeated content quite a bit, but really if you ignore the repeats, you are still getting your 2 minis and a PSN game. When you look at what was promised and what was offered, you are only loosing out on PSOne games.

Based upon release date only

  • mini: 
    3/1/2011Pix’n Love Rush
    3/1/2011Enigmo
    3/29/2011Vector TD (repeat item)
    3/29/2011A Space Shooter for 2 Bucks! (repeat item)
    4/5/2011Duael Invaders
    4/26/2011

    Alien Zombie Death minis

  • PSN:
    3/1/2011Sonic the Hedgehog
    3/29/2011Comet Crash
    4/5/2011Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    4/26/2011

    Crash Commando



Since March we have gotten 16 discounts, with discounts ranging from 20% to 80% off. Swarm, Kung Fu Live and Might & Magic Clash of Heroes have all offered the same exact discount as Dead Nation (20.01%) and Swarm and Might & Magic Clash of Heroes are day 1 discounts. Many other discounts have been offered in addition to these things.

Now I do understand that you might object to the quality or "worth" of a particular piece of content offered, and that is a fair judgement on if your should renew. But basing it off of 2 repeated items (1 PSOne, 1 mini) where you didn't also receive an additional piece of content that month, doesn't really make much sense when you consider the following:

Assuming a completed April (and June being a month), we should have the following at a minium 10 months into PS+;

  • PSN - 10
  • mini - 20
  • PSOne - 10

Thus far, we have the following (repeated items are not counted a second time):

  • PSN - 13 (doesn't include Crash Commando on 4/26 and counts Sam And Max as 1 game)
  • mini - 20 (doesn't include Alien Zombie Death minis on 4/26)
  • PSOne - 10

The numbers for DLC, themes and avatars offered are below, but I don't believe they listed a set amount each month.

  • Discounts offers - 111
  • DLC - 14
  • Dynamic Themes - 17
  • Themes - 23
  • Free Avatars - 16



So as it stands, we have been offered as much or more for all things promised, even excluding repeated items. I suggest that you actually look at my list of what was offered and run some calculations to determine if you are getting your $50 value back in content or not.

I'm very happy with playstation +, my favorite feature isn't so much the games they give out but rather the automatic download / updates which save me alot of time because it's set up to get all that out of the way while i'm at work so i'm not staring at download bars when i get home.  I feel like I got my worth within the first couple of months and they still keep dishing out the stuff so I'm very happy with the program and feel they went beyond the value.  I will definately be renewing when the time comes.

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?)

some stellar examples as well as some real dogs... I would say overall slightly below average but for what I am paying for them...

2. Discounts on games your interested in

This has been handy.... but only once because I usually own the game before it goes on discount (getting better lately as they launch with the discount not)

3. Quality of Free avatars and themes

love the themes.... not so much the avatars

4. Beta opportunities (happy or unhappy with invitations)

Beta's are actually more fun to me then full games in many ways so yeah happy

5. Quality of Full Game trials

just like the full game... amazing how far you can get in an hour on a speed run

6. Length of Full game trials (are you happy with 60 mins)

if they gave me 4 hours I would never need to buy most of the games that are offline  so yeah 60 mins is fine - good feel for the game and not so long as that I can speed run it

7. Are you happy with the Exclusive offers? (Uncharted 3 avatar, etc...)

so far mostly

8. Overall satisfaction with Plus?

b++

Questions you can answer

1. What do you like most about Playstation Plus?

monthly games and discounts, betas

2. What do you like least about Playstation Plus?

fee , no actually the qore magazine specials, sometimes the bonuses can't be downloaded as they are considered  only for 12 month subscriptions of qore and not of psn+

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

maybe start bring out ps2 classics as well as ps1 classics as free games if you have a 3 month or more subscription  (the ps2 game on every third month)

I'm a newbiee, omg yes a newbiee to Plus and so far i like it. I have noticed not as many new game trials in it. and demos. or avatars or themes.  as ounce was. But, as for the price its ok but, they need to make sure its worth it every dimeof it. so bring alittle more to it and itll be fine the discounts on games has been good. got a few from it. but, in all its good.

1. Quality of Free games (are they good enough?)

They're okay. I can only think of 1 or 2 i've actually been interested in enough

to play. - 4

2. Discounts on games your interested in

Haven't really go to take advantage of the first discount yet - 2

3. Quality of Free avatars and themes

they're decent i guess. they're free. can't complain. - 5

4. Beta opportunities (happy or unhappy with invitations)

Hasn't even made a difference, nothing i've been interested in. - 1

5. Quality of Full Game trials

I don't download full game trials. It takes forever, and I don't buy disc

based games via download. Plus it's mostly older games that I already have

played anyway. - 1

6. Length of Full game trials (are you happy with 60 mins)

n/a - 1

7. Are you happy with the Exclusive offers? (Uncharted 3 avatar, etc...)

not really. - 2

8. Overall satisfaction with Plus?

3/10 - most likely will not be renewing my subscription

Questions you can answer

1. What do you like most about Playstation Plus?

The few good free games and content

2. What do you like least about Playstation Plus?

Not enough deals or free stuff to make it worth it

3. What changes would you make personally? (remember this is a business,

think of it as your running the show)

Lower the price to around $19.99 a year, that's what it feels like it's worth to me.

I have PS+ in Japan & it is the biggest waste of time & money I have ever had the misfortune to join.

In the 8 or 9 months I have had PS+, there has not been 1 thing I have downloaded except Wipeout HD, which I had to pay 300 yen for. So on top of my 5000 yen, I had to pay extra.

I have seen what you get on PS+ in US & Europe & its much, much better.

In Japan each month you get two or three 15 minute trials, an avatar of a frog drawn by a retard, and some discounts - thats it.

We have never had ANY beta access for games like Assassins Creed, KillZone etc, nor have we ever had any mini games or indeed anything other than a 15 or 30 min trial.

There have been a couple of free games over the past 8 months ,but very rare. LBP when I signed up & Warhawk came some months later - but already owned both so no point & nothing else since.

So, as you can see, PS+ sucks in Japan. I will never renew again.

Sounds pretty good for you guys in Europe & US though. Just thought I would let you know we dont all get such a good deal.

I like Playstation +.  When my old ps3 crashed I was able to save and download all of the data back to my new PS3 320GB.  I didn't lose any data but a friend (he whose name shall not be mentioned) didn't  have PS + and lost all of his game data and had to start over from scratch.  He now has PS +.  That's my opinion and I respect your's. 

If it ain't broke, I haven't fixed it yet.
