Themes Now Expire?

21 replies 122 views Edited Aug 11, 2010

So, I downloaded the Nebula Tunnels theme, which is this week's free Plus theme. Upon checking my PSN account on Qriocity, I noticed there's an expiration date for the Nebula Tunnels theme. The other themes I have downloaded through Plus do not have an expiration date, since they're supposed to be free forever. I'm wondering if this is a mistake, or a sign of things to come with future themes...

You know what?   I think that popup saying it was tied to the subscription did appear when I downloaded it.  I remember that popup appearing three times.  Once for Qore and once for Aero Racer.  So the third time must have been for the Theme.  The only other thing I downloaded was PJ Racer 2nd Lap.

 

I didn't even realize it until you said it here.

Sure enough, it shows up with an expire date under my account

 


 

 

Hopefully this IS a mistake. They've already changed the updates to every other week now. No need to gimp PS+ even more.

This publisher's media is disruptive to my routine.....

 

 

Haha!  Get it?  Get it?...

 

Ah whatever.

 

***EDIT***

Hey!  We signed up on the same day.

 

Nevermind that.  I signed up on the 2nd.

I get it dude, and it made me laugh a bit (it's not hard at all to make me do that)
Kudos for that

I see the Theme expires on 10/3/2010, I assume you bought the 3 month Subscription OP?

Good catch, yeah they should be lifetime. Probably just an error but no idea when this would be adjusted. A few people have reported that when they call SCEA support, the reps have no info about Plus other than to sign up via the store.

You make a god point Spy, It seems that whenever people call Sony for assistance whether it be with Plus, PS Home or another feature the people spoken to invariably know nothing about the said feature, its one area where Sony really needs to 'pull up its socks'.
