After all the E3 hooplah, I finally checked out PS+.

After I bought an $18 three month subscription I got,

New Ratchet and Clank
Infamous 2
Little Big Planet 2
Just Cause 2
Saints Row 2
and more stuff...all for free. Plus cloud saving and automatic patching. Holy shit.

Sorry if this sounds like an ad for Playstation, but why do people still pay for Xbox Live?

It's been a more stable, user friendly, and reliable online experience.
PS Online has had its rough spots.

I know people who would rather die than give up XBL, but I found PS+ to be superior in almost every way. The online community isn't as large I guess, but the amount of free stuff and great deals kills Xbox in every way.

I had a PS3 from launch until around last April, when I swapped to xbox. I found the difference in online play pretty big, and lets not talk about the time it takes to download patches + install on PS3.

It's probably a fair bit different from when I was on PS3, but at the time I think there really was nothing that even made me think about buying PS+

Yes, but this month has been insane for free stuff. It's usually not that much.

Thing is, you can only play those games as long as you have a membership. You cannot, for example, buy a three month membership, then download all those games. You can only play them during your subscription. Honestly, being a year long subscriber, it was worth it before this, and now its just even more attractive.

I'd try this but I'm too lazy to even turn on my console, much less go online and get a subscription.

i signed up for PS+ this week myself. i got a bunch of last week's freebies before they went away, then most of this week's freebies.

all in all, i got like 14 games that are mine to play for as long as i have PS+. with the DLC and PSN game discounts, PS+ honestly will pay for itself down the line, so i'm really excited.

honestly, in the past year i've bought a lot of games that would have been like $1-5 cheaper if i had PS+ sooner. it's a no-brainer to have this service, if you ever download games.

also, there was that time when they released Journey a week early to PS+ subscribers only. i won't have to miss deals like that again! :)
