Re: PlayStation Plus FAQ

Jul 12, 2012
Automatic Updates for games won't find every patch for every game you have, even if installed on the hard drive. It seems to select only games that have been recently played to check for updates. Could this criteria be fleshed out in the FAQ?

How are games in the Instant Collection selected? I'm really curious as to why Sony EU gets different games added to their Instant Collection and, if and when we could get those games eventually. I'm refering to Deus Ex and Burnout Paradise most specifically.

Also I'd like to say that I love PS+! Best investment after buying a PS3.

I commented in your thread also, but this seems different.  In the thread you say you can't see the plus symbol but now it seems that you can?  What's the problem?  Can you post a screenshot of what you mean by "on my xmb... the plus sign is still there???"

Quick question...I am not a member yet but thinking about getting PS+.  If I join now I only will have access to the July list of free games and forward right or will I also have access to the previous months list?  Also I understand that you can keep the games as long as you are a member and the FAQ says "you’ll always have access to any game you’ve downloaded in the collection" does that mean for me to keep access to every months list of free games I would at least have to download it once so that I could come back later to redownload and play it (if I have removed it)?  Or are the games that get listed as free games always available as long as I am a member.

 

Thanks.

You will have access to the current game list at the time of your subscription.  For example, anything that has rolled off from June, May, April, etc is no longer available for new PS+ subscribers.

You have to download the game, or another way to look at it, you must complete the "purchase" of the PS+ game.  As long as you "purchase" the game, it is available in your download list.  So if you are a PS+ member, you should "purchase" all the "free" games each time they are offered.  Even if you do not download and play them now, you may want to play them on a rainy day six months down the road.

 

In short, you have to download or "purchase" each "free" game, because once it rotates out of the collection, you can no longer download it for "free" as part of PS+ unless you already have it available to you in your download list.  Hope that makes sense.

The Trophies are yours to keep, just like they would be if you rented a game, or had one on loan from a friend.  If the Trophies are from a game trial, then those will not show up on your public profile until you purchase the game.
