Re: Oh Wow Sony Just Whipped Your Ass Microsoft; Unveils Cash Back Program Of Its Ow

Yes you lose them once PS Plus expires but so what just dont let it expire. I got a year and 3 months of plus for about 60 dollars I think. Infamous 2 is a 60 dollar game, Warhammer 40k and LittleBigPlanet 2 are also good games. That 60 I spent for a year is worth the amount of games I get. And anyways after beating most of the games no point in playing anyway since they are mostly single player ones. I just downloaded Outland days ago for free too. I think Plus has been awesome from summer on. So many deals. Late last year I got all of Borderlands with all DLC for 15 bucks. And currently Borderlands is free for plus members.

I think its better than paying for service for a year and not getting any great deals. I recently got an xbox and im still deciding on whether I should even get xbox live gold.

Sure you get better deals, xbox sucks at deals but you save about 1$ on most things at least which isn't a big deal imo. I have both PS+ and Xbox live and as a service its miles better but on deals PS+ wins hands down. I also don't really see why people would spend over 100$ on the store just to get 20$ back. Is tehre even enough content to make it to 100$?lol
I don't see what the problem with that is. If you get to play those games for free but not actually own them it's still a great deal. I'm not a Playstation owner and I can see this. I don't buy games for multi-player purposes so getting a game for free and actually beating the game before it's taken away from me is still a great deal. There are only a few games that I'll play over and over again. I can actually name them. Borderlands 1 and 2, Deadspace 1 and 2, Dead Island and Skyrim. That's about it. Any other games you *as a company* wanna give me to complete and then return I'll gladly take it and think it's a great deal. If I want to personally keep something then I'll buy a hard copy of it.

While I myself don't like the idea of getting games for free from a premium service and not keeping them once it expires, this is basically the OnLive route, the only difference is that OnLive lets you know this, but it's perfect for people who are constantly trading/selling games AS SOON as they beat them (like me), so all in all, it's still the better deal. The one advantage PS3 has with this style, is that no internet connection is required once the download is finished, unlike OnLive, so there's more pros than cons really.

$100 is quite a lot to spend just to get a 20$ saving, I can't see many people doing that unless they're completely suckered into spending money on things they don't want.

Why do you seem to spend your life trying to put down Microsoft? Seriously console wars are sad in this day and age. Microsoft offer a service. Sony offer a service. Consumers choose which one they want. You pick Sony and that's fine but do you have to spend all your time trying to justify it instead of just enjoying the damn console.

I'd much rather have the function to party chat and get all the services that Xbox Live provides over PSN. I have both machines but the PS3 doesn't feel properly made for online multi-player.

I don't ALWAYS put Microsoft down, but as a 360 owner I do feel the need to point out something stupid they do, their cash back program was a joke, so I commented, it just so happened that Sony unveiled their own cash back (which I doubt was a coincidence given the time), so I commented. Enjoy the hell out of both, but Microsoft does a fair amount of stupid shit.

I don't think it was either, that's probably why PSN is free, and most exclusives don't have online play (not counting sequels).

No I think its pretty cool myself. I got Infamous 2 as well but what I'm saying is PS+ just really isn't worth coming back every month while for me with XBL it keeps me coming back for their premium service. I like the idea of free games but to me I just can't justify the price for a year subscription because at teh end of the day its the same thing with Sony

Cashback programs actually happen quite often on xbl though, none of them are very good but it's not exactly a rarity.

Well given how little i'm on XBL (and PSN for that matter), no wonder I haven't taken notice.
