    im just curious as to what happens when you purchase a game or theme or something that is discounted due to PS+, do you get to keep it once the subscription ends? or is it like free things that you cant use without PS+ subscription?

    You can use it only till your PS+ subscription is active.

    You get to keep anything you pay for through the free PS+ account at the discounted price.

    If you buy a discounted game, do you lose that?

    I don't know about discounted games, I think they may stay since you did buy them, even if it was a lower than original price.

    They stay. The rule is generally that anything you pay for is yours.

    How about the free avatars?

    They don't have the warning you get when you get games

    So from what I understand from that link is, everything you get from PS+ (excluding the full games you get for free) are yours to keep? Awesome.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Anything downloaded free off PSN+ will expire after your 30 days are up. Anything you paid for using PSN+ will not expire.

    its sort of funny that everyone needs the same facts told to them in multiple ways =P

    i guess when money is involved people get really cautious.

    What they mean is that is that any games that are DISCOUNTED on PSN+ but not free you will keep if you buy them at the discounted price while a PSN+ membership is active. Anything that is FREE under PSN+ will expire when your PSN+ expires.

    I interpreted it as everything, regardless if it's paid or free, excluding free games, will be kept forever.

    Imo, PSN+ is only useful if you buy things from the store.
