Re: after a playstation plus expires do u lose your free games?

Ok.So i bought 1 year subscription.I will get about 12 titles that will most probably fill my 32gb card.

After my subscription ends, then i am planning on using a second memory card to connect to ps store.

So while i have the first memory card i will not ever connect to the internet.Do the free games have an internal clock that makes them unusable after subscription ends or they get that command any time you connect to ps network?

Because i am thinking that if you have downloaded a lot of free playstation plus games , before the subscription ends dont ever connect to ps network again.You will have your free playstation network games forever


If said option were available, and worked seamlessly, I suppose one could theoretically do such a thing.

 

I would not suggest one brag about his though, as it is against the Terms of Service Agreement, everyone so loves to skim past and press accept for.

 

In answer to part of the question, if you go to Account Management, Manage Downloads, you will see an expiration date next to the items that you received through your SUBSCRIPTION to PS PLUS.  In the event your subscription should end, these games would expire, until you re subscribed to PLUS.  Then they would reappear, with a new expiration date.

 

While I am not sure of the method of storage you are using, I am quite sure the games received under your subscription for "free", are tied explicitly to your system and personal PSN ID.  In essence, they should not be able to be transferred to another system.

 

I am not sure to what length this goes, but an off system memory card may indeed still require the system ID and your PSN ID in order to function on the system or any system you desire.

 

Again, you might try this, but to what end?  As well, I certainly would not be bragging about/promoting the idea of trying to circumvent PSN.  There is always consequences, and they will eventually find you.

 

If your connection to PSN is not that important to you, then you may do as you wish.  I am no authority, but I do believe in adhering to Rules, Guidelines, and User Agreements.  They are in place for a reason.

 

Perhaps you should review:

As well as:

Since you seem to have skipped right past them before, in order to simply click "Accept", without fully understanding the implications within them.

 

Just trying to help here, please do not feel this is an attack.

what if someone were to get a game for free such as Gravity Rush for the psvita and buy a costume pack or anything of the sort? would that mean that they could keep that game or does the same still apply? also you mean that if i just got a game at a discounted price from psvita i could keep that game and not have to pay the difference if my ps+ were to expire?

 

Thx

The games on PS+ are not FREE.

 

They are DRM protected rentals for your subscription duration
