Listening now, and man, I have to say that whole Playstation Plus thing on the Vita is realllly tempting me. But I don't know how the whole thing works. Can anyone give me some details?
I have a PS3 and a Vita. Does one subscription cover me on both?
Am I right in the following? If I get the subscription, I get free games. If I stop subscribing, I lose access to those games. If I were to resubscribe, I'd get them back. If I'm subscribed when something becomes free, I can get it free later, even if it stops being free to new subscribers and I didn't download it back when it was free.
The current free offerings look pretty awesome. Any way to know how long they'll stick around? I'm not sure I'll have the $50 to throw at an annual subscription until Christmas.
1 subscription DOES cover both. I just got a Vita, and along with my two physical games, thanks to PS+ I have something like eight or nine games to play already.
The free games are free, but you have to download them to your account during the month that they're available. Once you do that, as long as you have an active membership (even if you cancel and resub), you will always have access to those games. But after the month they're listed on the store as free, if you haven't already registered them to your account, you'd have to pay for them. So once this month is over, the current crop of freebies will no longer be listed as free, but as long as you clicked on them to register them to your account, you'll own them for as long as you have PS+.
And yeah, the current free offerings ARE awesome. :) It's one of the reasons I got that Amazon bundle for Vita-- it came with three months of free PS+ and PS All Stars, so basically it came with something like 18 games free, by the end. :)
