Is PlayStation Plus a good deal?

Well, check this out: According to research by Push Square , the monthly subscription service could theoretically save you over $1,300!

Basically, they just added up the individual Store prices for all the PS Plus games given away in 2014, and that came to $1,349 in the US and £960 in the UK. With an annual subscription fee of only $50 and £40, respectively, the savings are hugely significant. The only problem with this is that once someone stops paying for Plus, the entire collection of digital titles received is no longer playable. Also, don't forget that Push Square included Plus games for all three PlayStation platforms (PS4, PS3, Vita).

It's interesting to note that the average Metascore of all Plus games in 2014 was 79. Lots of really solid games there! Lastly, don't forget that being a Plus member typically gives you a 20 percent discount on Store products, which is another big incentive.

Really talking about mothers?? What are you like 10 years old?? What's next?? You're mother is so fat jokes.
In all honesty I really didn't know if your comment was ignorance, sony hate, or just plain stupidity. Although you're second comment answered my question already

Lol that was so weak. You're mom must be so depressed to have such a dumba** as her child. Your dad should've jerked you off and your mom should've swallowed you lol. This will be my last message to you as you are a waste of time and I will not keep responding to your stupidity. Happy Gaming

There's so much wrong with this way of calculating that I don't know where to begin. So I wont. 🙂

I just tried subscribing to PS plus last month and it's my first time to it. So far I'm enjoying the perks of being a PS plus subscriber and I plan to subscribe again once my ps plus expires next year.

Have been a PS+ member for years, and love it. It's not for people that only play a small number of games in a select genre, but for people that like a wide range of experiences, or to try out things that are a bit different every now and again, it's bloody brilliant. Velocity 2X is the latest game that I'd never have played otherwise – and I'd say it's one of the better games I've played all year. Guacamelee on Vita is another, and I'm digging Dust: An Elysian tale.

Sure, I'm not into Survival-Horror, so I didn't get much out of Outlast or Lone Survivor, but on the other hand, I played 30-odd hours of Don't Starve. That, there, is good value for the PS+ sub in one game.

As for counting it as $1300 being inappropriate, it depends on the audience. It is for me, as I still buy other games at launch, so if they pop up on PS+ then I've already paid for them (Steamworld Dig, for example), but there's no doubt that you get ridiculously good value out of it – even if it's just $200 of value for a $50 sub ($70 over here) then that's a return of 400%, which isn't to shabby!

And, if you don't like playing a range of different genres or trying out different stuff, don't get it – no harm done. I don't see how it's anything but a plus, boom boom :).

I only signed up for the cloud save files and the other automatic features. I backup monthly but can never be too safe.

you pay for features which have not been offered in years (early beta access), games which never come (drive club + edition), and indie games after indie games after indie games.
you do the maths!
theres only one reason why people are continuing their + subscription.
no + = no MP, and we all know this generation cannot survive without fragging someone in the face then bopping up and down on them in virtual form screaming obscenities even deamons would find despicable!

Really don't understand what ppl are complaining about. So they gave indie games but they also gave of us a ton of AAA games for all 3 Sony consoles. Saw an the article that broke this down and showed everything Sony gave away and MS only gave out $500 worth of free games compared to PS+. Besides who would seriously complain about free games. I'm just happy I'm getting free games from both MS and Sony
