I share the enthusiasm for the service, though they're skimping on the promise of Betas at the moment, I still think we should have had first access to LBP Vita.

I've always been a fan of the PSN+, and I'm really not sure why people are complaining about it.

The whole point of the PSN+ service is I thought was to beef up your PSN experience by offering exclusive access to betas and demos, cloud saving, auto updates, auto patches, and exclusive discounts in the PSN Store. Free titles they keep offering are just addon bonuses IMO.

And yes, they ARE free because I paid for the PSN+ services, and not the titles themselves.

It's not free if you have to pay for it. That's my point. And I believe it is fairly simple to understand. Call it semantics if you like. I call it stating the obvious.

I'm not saying it's not a bargain. I'm just saying it's not free.

But you wouldn't get laughed at if you said 'Tesco Saved me 5p'.

Well you are just gonna get laughed at if you go into Tesco buy an apple from them when it's more in Sainsburys for example and say "Tesco gave me 5P"

My point is that 'free' is just an easier term to use, whether or not the semantics are correct or not. Altaranga is right, but I just don't think it amounts to a hill of beans whether someone describes it this way or not.

I'd suggest that if you bought PS+ for the cloud services and other perks prior to the 45 game deal being announced they you might see these games as 'free' when they are actually more correctly described as a 100% discount on the store price. This also separates them from the other deals where you simply get a discount on the game through PS+

As I said, it's pretty much like people going around calling a Vacuum Cleaner a Hoover, which is factually wrong unless it is from Hoover.

You are contracting for their service.

It may work out as "free" if you play the games or use the discounts but it's not free.

It's like me hiring contractors for my business and because my contractors did a better job than if had hired through individuals, the extras were free.

I would be saving money possibly but the extras I would not consider as free and I agree Guderman as that's how I see it.

Oddworld I almost paid ten quid for but then it was on PSN+ out of the blue and saved me forking out a tenner for it and I think its the same for other things.

I think it's great that you can pay £39.99 and get 45 free top quality games now, as opposed to the older PS+ that provided a mix of free PS1, free Mini and occasional free full games.

I do miss the minis though.

Just for those that gave me a TD:

It's free because no-one can be bothered to say 100% off, which is the official version. You might as well go around berating everyone who calls a Vacuum Cleaner a Hoover.

Very true mate - not free at all, but a minimum of 45 games are going to be available this year throughout your £40 subscription period which makes each game about the same price as a Star Bar! (maybe a few pence dearer) - which isn't too bad really! I was a disbeliever too, but I am happy to be a PS+ subscriber now. True that if you choose to take a break from your subscription your games are no longer available, but if you choose to reactivate your subscription again at a later date every game you've had available before are made available for you to download again for 'Free' (or at least Star Bar Free).

I was talking about this at work the other day and it's amazing how much my gaming attitude has changed over the last year. Between PS+ and Lovefilm I have played nearly everything that I have wanted to this year and it has cost me less than £20 per month, (which also includes film rentals as well as games). I really thought that not having the games to keep would bother me as I was always one to buy new releases on day one and loved having shelves full of games, but it hasn't bothered me one little bit - and the extra money has come in very useful! I know that this style of playing games isn't for everyone, especially the game hoarders, and I think it deffo helps that I'm not an online gamer so things like online passes are not an issue for me but I know that I certainly won't be going back to the old days of desperately trying to get the cash together for day one purchases. It's really opened my eyes to the possibilities that services like Onlive may be able to offer me in the future for my gaming needs.

Sorry I digressed from the topic - errrr.... No, Not Free, but good value for money!

By 'free' you don't actually mean 'free', right? I mean in the literal sense of the word. This is part of the PSN+ service for which you have to spend £40 for the privilege. And you don't actually ever own the game either, so it's sort of like renting it... for money.

It's a bit like saying spend £3 a month with Boomerang and they send you a free game. It's not really free at all, unless you don't include the spending money part in your equation I guess.
