    How incredible is it? It's about time too... only had rubbish for the last few months.

    On the plus side, it's a new service from Sony, and it is ongoing. They will be releasing more in pairs (note the dates that each pair of games end).

    Unfortunately I am at work and can not link to the news, however Kotaku has the story.

    (Hope this is the right one - Kotaku)

    EDIT - US also seemed to get even more than us! (Just Cause 2 in particular)

    The US gets a genuinely brilliant set of games.

    The rest of us? Yeah, it's okay... Still tossing up whether to renew or not.

    Man even more PSN games I may play one day. Some great ones there though.

    Just to confirm for everyone as is stated multiple times in the EU blog: You get to keep all the games you download for as long as you have your subscription. When I was first reading about the dates/rotation I thought it might of been otherwise.

    Each new month will have a new pair of games which will be available for 3 months. This month was Space Marine + Chime (I think so, maybe check). Those games run out on the 18th of July, and you will be given 2 different games to replace them, which will then last for 3 months. You will also get a free game or two that will stay with you for the length of your subscription.

    Some people seem to think that you will get the pairs for the life of your subscription. This isn't correct. The PSN+ Game of the Month is for the life of your subscription, but the Paired games, and the base 'Game Library' (inFamous 2, LBP 2, Motorstorm etc) are only for a limited time. It's a little confusing, but just remember to play the games as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.


    Apparently I've gone and confused myself. Seems you can keep the games as long as you want, you just have to download them by a certain time. Each month some of the games will be removed for download by new members, but those who downloaded it before are fine.

    You don't even have to download them. You just have to start the download after the 'activating' message is done, then you cancel the download. You can then download them anytime you want from your download history.

    So basically you sign up for the Playstation Plus membership and you get 10 games every month?

    no - normally 1-2 per month.... often PSone/mini games

    getting full PS3 games free is not normal - June 2012 was special

    EDIT: Sony do guarantee the 'value' of the freebies for any given 12 month period will be more than your PSN+ fees though

    AFAIK, though, you will always get a big whack of games for signing up... though i could be wrong... it has happened once before...

    Just wanted to say, been playing Deus Ex since its release on Playstation Plus. Probably wouldn't have tried it otherwise, and I've been very addicted!

    Great value now :)
