    I'm a PS+ member, and I was just wondering.

    I want to clear up some space, and I want to delete games, but they aren't available any more in the shop for subscribers. But if I downloaded them already, would I be able to download them again in the future?

    Yeah, you should be able to redownload it if even it's removed. To test, find some game you don't like or don't play much and test it to be sure.

    Yes, just like Suprgamr232 said.
    As quoted from their blog.

    You can also download them again from your downloads list.

    I'm not actually answering the post, but i just wanted to ask:
    You have to be a member of playstation plus to re-download the games you bought? I'm not and I can re-dl them as much as i want...
    OR have they updated it?

    Thanks! :yayps3:

    The freebies need to be used with a PS Plus account. In other words, once your PS+ expires, so do your games, unless you buy the PS+ again (think of it as Netflix or Spotify for games, if you will).

    If you bought something for a discounted PS+ price, you get to keep the game(s) since you paid for them.

    How are the games loaded onto the console? PSN downloads I'd guess? Log back into the store (and possibly redownload the games) is what the internet seems to suggest as a fix. In other words, no. You probably won't be able play them without logging into the Store and also downloading the latest FW -> no CFW.

    no, not PSN downloads, they are pkg files.and installed via "Install_Package_Files" there must be a way around it or they wouldn't be all over the place for download

    React PSN. Apparently easier if you've logged into PSN before, but still possible regardless with the Rebug FW. http://psx-scene.com/forums/f187/psn-games-psn-renew-license-help-100042/
