I was thinking about getting it until I realised you are kinda 'renting' the games whilst you have the subscription - as soon as you no longer subscribe to playstation plus, you cannot access any of the content you got for free....

If you paid for some things, even at a reduced rate, you will still have access to those, but for example, Wipeout, zen pinball, destruction derby, etc. would not be playable when your sub ended.

Playstation Plus is going to be about as popular as the PSP Go was...

It depends on whether you are interested in what is on offer. For example i wont be getting it as i already own Wipeout HD and Zen Pinball, and i am not interested in free themes or anything else.
Also i dont like the fact that you dont get to keep your games shouls you decide to leave.
There are already alot of good deals already available on the PSN without being subscribed to Playstation Plus, and these are usually updated every other week. The most recent of special offers is listed here.
If you want my honest opinion i would say subscribing to Playstation Plus is a waste of time and money, the service that is offered for free is good enough for me. Save your £40 PSN credit and buy some games you want, not that are forced upon you.

That's the thing, I don't think many Plus buyers know this, they will get a shock at the end.

At least it's optional, unlike some other consoles online service.

Funny, you don't see 360 users complaining. When their sub runs out, they can't play their games online anymore.

I think Plus is worth it for £35:

You get to keep your premium themes, DLC, avatars and discounted items forever.

I never said if it was worth it or not, in fact i don't think it's worth it.
But i was just mentioning that it's optional and therefore nobody needs to buy it, and that we can still play online for zero pence, yes it's nice paying nothing for the same thing other people are paying for :)

Bitter, much?

For new PS3 owners this is a great deal, for me not so much as I already have the free stuff.
However I probably will stop buying from the store and get PSN+ later in the year.
