    Yeah, I've been doing that since they started adding PSV games and I still don't have one. When/if I get one I'll have a ton of games lol.

    So you're paying for a service that you don't even have access to in order to play its games.. weird.

    You're in the same position as him?

    Sure their "free" games are nice but only if you'd own the device(s) to play it.

    I can get a PS4 & Vita yes2day if i want but i dont have the time to play the games. So by the time i get a PS4 and Vita i will have 50+ games ready to play..

    Unless the universe comes to an end... ill will buy a PS4 & Vita..


    or are you saying that i should get a Wii U and keep it on a lower firmware... so once its hacked... which will happen play all the free games.

    If you're already get the service for one console, there's no reason not to get the titles for the other ones. It doesn't cost you anything extra and there's no limit, so you lose absolutely nothing.

    Why is there a need to hoard the games? Does Sony periodically take certain games down?

    Yes, every month some of the previous titles are removed.

    Example (scroll down to the 'In Summary' part)

    I see. Well that makes sense to hoard as many as you can!

    If the customer is using the service for one device it makes sense but those who're paying for it without actually using is just a waste of money, but then again, it's their money.

    Despite that Microsoft gives away less than interesting games for their Xbox Gold members they're kept permanently which means even if the user's Gold membership he/she can still play it and redownload it at any time.

    Flame point out where it says to "get a Wii U". Nowhere. Just stick to the actual conversation without trying to derail it.

    Games for Gold and PS+ follow the same principle, they offer a changing pool of games and you get access to those you picked during the cycle. You can re-download Plus content as well, but first it has to be on your account, just like with Games for Gold.

    If your PS+ expires, but then you subscribe again, will all your hoarded games still be available for free? Or do you need to start from scratch?

    Yup, if you later decide to resubscribe all your old games will still be available.
