One interesting tidbit in the article is that PSone games continue to function after the Plus subscription expires. At least for now...

Nevertheless, we've asked Sony to clarify because, hey – permanently free games makes PlayStation Plus a much more palatable offer! If it's a glitch, you can look forward to another mandatory firmware update sometime soon (sorry!).

 

 

yeah but its ovioulsy a glitch - the games do have expiration tags on them.

but kudos for the find - lets hope sony dont fix

I guess we will find out soon enough.  I agree that it is probably a bug and a mandatory firmware update will be required, which in turn will correct the problem.  Plus is a subscription service - with lots of discounts - so I doubt that the PSOne games were ever intended to be free forever.

 

One thing to note, Qore offered Syphon Filter free to subscribers during Spring 2009, so maybe Plus could (will) offer certain games that will not expire.
