I wanted to play Dragon’s Dogma for a while now. And now its free which is just in time for me to shelve my PS3 for its successor. Great timing Sony.

I've never had PSN+, so how do those "free" games work? Do you have to have a constant connection in order for the games to work or what? :txbconfused:

Even though i can't play MP games, it might be worth it to me just to have access to all of those games depending on how they work exactly.

What is Playstation Plus?

Playstation Plus is a subscription Model across the Playstation 4, Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita that brings loads of extras including An Instant Game Collection, Early Access to Game Betas, Discounts from the Playstation Store, Freebies and features

How Much does Playstation Plus cost?

Playstation Plus costs £39.99 for a 365 day Subscription and £11.99 for a 90 day subscription.

These can be purchased from Game Retailers such as GAME, Amazon, Shopto as well as the Playstation Store itself. Some retailers also do deals from time to time and a 365 Plus Subscription can be found for around £30. Subscriptions can be purchased by either buying dedicated Playstation Plus Membership cards or using PSN Store Credit Vouchers

When you buy a Playstation Plus Subscription, its tied to your Playstation Network Account. A single Subscription applies across all your Playstation Devices, so if you own a PS4, PS3 and Vita, then you will receive all the benefits each platform receives as part of your subscription

What happens if i dont Re-new my subscription once it ends?

If you dont continue your subscription once it ends then you will loose access to any of the games in the Instant Game Collection and any Features that are made up of the Plus Model. If you re-subscribe, you will regain access to all of your games and features again. Memberships can also be stacked on your account, so if a deal comes along, buy several and enjoy Plus for even Longer.

Do I Need Playstation Plus to Play Online?

As a PS4 User, you will Require a Playstation Plus Membership in order to take part in Online Gaming except for games which are part of the Free 2 Play model. Without a Membership you still have access to your Single Player Games. A membership is NOT required to play Online on PS3 and Vita.

Do I Need Playstation Plus to watch Netflix and other Media Applications?

Nope, all Video and Music applications are accessable without a Plus Membership

What Games do PS4 Owners get as Part of the Instant Game Collection?

On day one of PS4 Launch, Plus Members will get a Free Copy of Drive Club+ Edition. This version offers everything the Full £40 retail version offers except for several Cars and Tracks which can also be purchased as DLC separately.
Edit: Drive Club has been delayed until spring 2014 but will be offered in a free version through Playstation Plus once the game launches

Indie Developed Games Don't Starve, Outlast, and The Secret Ponchos will also become part of the Instant Game Collection after launch.

What Other Benefits do PS4 owners get with Playstation Plus?

PS4 owners will get the same great Discounts on Playstation Store and Access to early game Beta Tests as PS3and Vita Owners receive

In terms of Features, Nothing has been announced yet but this post will be updated once they have been announced.

Im already a Playstation Plus Subscriber, will my Membership carry over to PS4?

Yes, any Playstation Plus Memberships on your Playstation Network Account will also transfer over to PS4 with your Account and Trophies.

I have Sub Accounts on my Playstation, Can they also play content given from Playstation Plus?

Absolutely. If say you have a Master Account on your Playstation and Sub Accounts, all of those accounts will then have Access to the Games downloaded from the Instant Game Collection. For Playstation 4, it also means that all accounts will have Access for Online Play

I understand that my Playstation Plus Subscription will carry over from Vita and PS3 but will the games I have from Plus also move over to PS4?

Sadly not. The PS4 is not backwards comparable with any previous Playstation consoles, so none of the games, including the free ones Obtained from Playstation Plus will be playable on PS4. This also includes Playstation.

As long as you're a member, you can download the games and play them. If you're offline, that's fine. You can still play them. After your subscription runs out, you won't be able to access the games until you renew.

DD Dark Arisen is a very solid RPG. Bitterblack Isle (which is a separate area in the game) gives you that Dark Souls type of feel. I am not familiar with Binary Domain, i'll have to look that game up.

Also everyone needs to play Binary Domain. Great game that was terribly underrated.

Just started up my subscription last week! The value, amazing.
Got Xcom, Amalur, Uncharted3, Hotline Miami.
And now these next month too?
I too have really wanted to play Dragons Dogma.
It's cool you get double downloads on some of them - Vita & PS3 versions.

I'm crazily excited for Resogun. Love that dev., The Super Stardust games and Dead Nation were some of my favorite downloadable titles on PS3/Vita, should be fun.

Honestly don't know anything about Contrast, will have to check out some vids.

I've never had PS+ but will be buying it for $29.99 on Black Friday from Gamestop (unless I win the Union giveaway) now they usually RRP at $49.99 if I'm not mistaken and I was thinking of buying 2 at $29.99 now similar to Xbox Live can you put two codes in and have the membership for 2 years or is it a year at a time only.

So when you forget to cancel before the 30 days is up they can charge your ass.

This is what I thought, where can you cancel once you've put in your details? if there is no place to do so, I won't be playing online until black friday when I pick up my 1 year sub from Gamestop for $29.99. It's no big deal either way.
