    Yeah, you can play up to four player in it. My brothers and I got drunk and ate pizza and played it, it was a good time.

    Why on earth ate they giving away twelve free games that normally cost $60 a pop?

    How much does a plus membership cost?

    @Godfather, that's why. It's to get people to sign up for the service. It's $50 a year, which is pretty cheap monthly, and now they can point and say see? See? TONS OF FREE STUFF, SIGN UP, SONY IS THE COOLEST.

    I'm not trying to be a shill, I couldn't give a fuck about Sony, but this is a good deal even if you never download anything else or use the other bits of their service.

    Although the ability you get to have your console turn on in the middle of the night and automatically download system updates and patches for any of your games is pretty life-altering. I never have to sit through a download screen before I do anything and it's great.

    Yeah but you don't actually get to keep any of those games when your subscription runs out

    I can literally wait a year and get all of the games on that list that I care about for $50 once the prices go down, and I will own them forever

    Not that isn't still a good value proposition, but none of those games are still retailing for $60.

    Plus tends to have pretty good sales, too.

    I've had it for a little over a month and the cost of my three month sub has already paid for itself by buying Mortal Kombat complete and the Sly collection.

    Yeah, but they've really been offering up quality games each month the past few as well. Even something that looked silly like Hamsterball turned out to be a huge hit when I have friends over. The total number of good games I've gotten through Plus already far outweighsthe $50 I paid for it, and I'm not even 6 months into my year. Additionally, I'm actually playing them now, not a year or more from now.

    I am feasting on the newest free stuff they've given out. Walking Dead 1&2 is great and Outland is fucking rad. I remember hearing about it when it came out but I would never have bought it. Now that I've gotten it free it's totally bitchin'.

    Has anybody tried that 2D Bloodrayne game? Is it good?

    I watched the giant bomb quick look of it and it seemed fairly well received, I've gotta turn on my ps3 now.

    Is there a full list of what's new?

    The PSN store has a section for Plus and you can see what's new, what's free, etc.

    They do updates on the Playstation blog about what's new each week on Plus.

    Yeah, I'm with you on this and cloud ownership/game leasing in general. Steam is as far as I'm willing to go.

    I'll say again it's different mentalities. I wouldn't have bought the games that they're giving out but I'm glad to play them. I'm a game grazer and because of that I've stopped buying any except the ones I know I'll finish. This lets me play a bunch of others and if they go away, oh well.

    Also the "update all of your shit in the middle of the night" feature is nearly worth the price of the service by itself.

    valve has at least said (I think), that if they ever closed they would make the games available to download for their customers. You're at least not leasing the game with steam, you really do own the game, it just lives elsewhere

    i picked up a plus membership a couple of weeks ago and been getting some good use out of it

    it is a little wonky with the game leasing stuff, but stuff like LBP2 and walking dead i only intend to play thru once

    i love the automatic updates thing, even if that functionality should really be standard with the console

    my only beef with the service is that the plus discounts on certain games expire after like a week or two

    i thought about picking up sound shapes and papo y yo, but by the time i decided to nab them their discount had expired

    probably have enough games to play right now on ps3 between lbp2, dark souls, persona 3, walking dead, &c

    Unless the agreement has been changed since I last read about it, I'm almost certain we own nothing we pay for on Steam. But I could be wrong. And I'm on my phone so I'm too lazy to look it up right now.

    Free this week Scott Pilgrim for anyone who doesn't already have it and the new Double Dragon game (neon) which looks hella stupid. If it's got online co-op anyone interested in a game?

    scott pilgrim was a fun little game that got way better about halfway thru when you could do more combat things other than just punch + kick

    also the soundtrack is lovely

    Free games this week are Rochard and Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Now I can be bad at the latest version of Street Fighter instead of the old ones!

    i almost pulled the trigger on a vita last week...decided to wait until sony press conference.

    might just pay off as a thread on cheap ass gamer has a japanese ad saying the wifi vita drops to 199 http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=338549

    hopefully the US price drop isnt far behind.
