i think it only happens with the free games and dlc you get , if you purchased something on discount with plus then its yours for ever.

It's subjective whether its worth it or not. You get at least one free game every month, this month its Shank 2 and Shift 2 as well as PSP Minis, Themes, Wallpapers, discounts on games, full game trials, etc..

Any game you pay for you get to keep, any game that you get for free expires when your PS+ subscription expires.

1) Yes, it is well worth it to go Plus. They give away free games all the time, and just as many discounts. For $50 a year, if you're vigilant, you can snatch up way more than $50 in free stuff per year.

2) If you purchase something at a discounted price, and then your Plus expires, you have to pay for it again at full price. For example, let's say that FooGame is for sale on the store for $19.99, but PS+ subscribers get it for $9.99. If your PS+ expires, you have to re-purchase it at the "everybody else" price of $19.99. However, if you renew your PS+ subscription, you regain access to all of the discounted content you already have.

I am a PSN Plus subscriber, and I'm not a massive gamer, but I would still say that it's worth it. Trine 2 for free, plus loads of discounts and demos you can't get otherwise... can't really go wrong.

I don't play my PS3 that much these days game-wise, but I do switch it on every month or so to check what the new deals are, and if there's anything I'm interested in, I'll get it.

If you game/ buy games a lot then yes its worth the purchase.
you get about 3(not entirely sure) games free every month and they are playable until the subscription expires.
You can also purchase some games for discounted price and its playable even after the subscription ends.
In addition to that you get avatars and some early demo games.

Mine is true, any game you buy at a discounted price is yours to keep.

I can see the confusion

"Free" (Costs $0) plus games you [i][b]only if you stay a plus member.[/b][/i]

Games purchased (where you spent money) where you get an additional discount for being a plus member, you keep, even if you stop plus membership.

As mentioned anything you PURCHASE at a price even if discounted, you keep once your subscription expires. You do not have to repurchase again.

I personally think it is more than worth the money and already have the funds in my wallet to resubscribe. Just holding off in case they do an Easter offer that I can take advantage of.

Even forgetting about the games and discounts, you also then get cloud storage for save games and also automatic downloads of firmware and game patches as well.

I've never let mine expire, but according to the SOE EULA, if I understood it right, you'd have to re-pay for discounted games. Maybe that has changed, I haven't read it since I first got PS+.

I think it's worth it just for the automatic updates.

If you bought it, it's yours. Even after Plus expires. You can check using the information icon. You do not, and never did, had to pay again for a game that you've already purchased because you used a PS+ discount. PSN Store has discounts all the time, they work the same way.

We should just have a sticky "Is PS+ worth the money?" and the thread would just have a huge, red, [b]YES[/b]!

So if I had a year of PS plus, drop the subscription for three months, and then join again. Do I get access to all those previous games again?

Yes you do.

Plus is extremely worth it right now, even if you are in US. Discounts as of today - Shank 2 - FREE - Shift 2 Unleashed - FREE. Those 2 games right there will run you the price of the subscription alone.
Journey at a discount... Free themes, avators, and some DLC.
Biggest + about PSN + is the automatic updates and automatic upload of your saves to cloud.

It is worth every penny and then some IMO. As others have mentioned, Automatic Updates alone pretty much make it worth it IMO, but just this past week, kick ass amount of GOOD games.
Here is what I said in a thread about the latest + update...

Did not even see this thread until after I saw all of the good stuff on + this week, Wow. Definitely very cool. Going to break out my Logitech GT again for Shift 2, Shank 2 for free is awesome, original Silent Hill and Canabalt, all free. Damn good week, pretty much the best one ever. Very nice.

Even after you purchase a subscription to it, you can purchase a renewal for 2 years for $44.99 instead of $59.99. I like it for the 60 minute full game trials. Its part of the reason why I purchased Borderlands GOTY.

I doubt you'll find many users have a poor opinion of PS+. It is something Sony has managed not to **** up.
