I know you said "never mind" or my bad, or whatever, but I think it is fair that PS+ subscribers get some games or demos first (or a better discount) before the rest of the PSN subscriber base.  Seems like a decent PS+ perk to me to get something at a better discount or first for 1-4 weeks (or whatever).

Coming from a non playstation plus subscriber, I gotta quick question.. I was considering signing up for playstation plus, but wasn't exactly sure it was for me... I know I don't get too much online content, but if it saved me a good amount of money on a few of the things I do get online, then maybe it is worth it.. Anybody know what things they mainly have offered for playstation plus members, and if the discounts are worthy of the monthly fee? Another thing.. Has playstation plus been a success..? I haven't heard much about it and I know it's been out for some time now.. Do you think they would have been better off if they had it as a beta first..? Similar to how they have the playstation rewards program as a beta now.. Just a thought.lol. Thanks!

Check out this link for a list of everything PS+ has offered ...

Has PS+ been a success?  There is another thread around here about PS+ subscriber base hitting 100K.  To be honest, I am not sure if that is for US + UK/EU, or just US.  I am not sure what Sony's targets are, so it is hard for me to say if Sony considers PS+ a success; however I can say that I have been happy with the service.

Would PS+ have been better if it started as a beta?  I think the first 3 months were more or less a paid beta.

They can't hold back content if there a market for it outside of PS+ peeps

It was pretty easy to see the deals plus got would filter down to non plus people after a couple weeks.

Actually Sony could hold back content by making certain items PS+ exclusive, however I doubt they will do that anytime soon except for avatars and themes.

I think getting games, demos, etc exclusive for 1+ weeks before the rest of the PSN users is a nice perk. I remember when Move support was added to HVB, PS+ subscribers received it 2-4 weeks before everyone else. And of course there was gnashing of teeth ...

Imo, ps+ seems a waste of money.  It doesn't enhance my gaming experience, I don't care for these "free" things because I have GameFly, and it doesn't even offer xgc. WASTE
