Wow - Sony have really pulled a fast one with regard to DLC on PS+

At some point between launch and today, they have changed their terms, meaning that DLC is no longer yours to keep when your PS+ subscription ends.

Be very careful if signing up to this service - it doesn't always do what it says on the tin!

Yep, I noticed that - you get to keep anything you've paid for at the PS+ reduced price but any freebies will expire.

Still, you can get 2 x £20 PSN cards for between £30-35 depending on deals, then if you buy this month you get 15 months for the price of 12, so you can get it for less than £2.50 a month at the mo.

I bought the "Fallout 3" 'Game of the Year Edition' for under £20 for one of my kids a couple of months ago. If you were just looking for the additional content, that could be a viable alternate option.

PS. 'fc'; I may have the previous terms... I'm midway changing between a dead laptop & a new machine at present so all my files are scattered across various external hard drives. If/when I find the terms previously published, I'll let you know. Failing that, try "The Wayback Machine" [ http://web.archive.org ].

BFN,

Cheers fp - I know you are good at keeping a copy of these things. I tried the "wayback machine", but it doesn't seem to have them archived (yet) - perhaps not old enough yet?

I really hope that SCEE get roasted over this - I firmly believe they have acted in a very underhand way.
#14
You are not guaranteed a Killzone 3 beta key. remember it's limited to 10,000 users only

If they did indeed change today did you / we not have to accept new agreement as in they should have had it appear on screen to accept the new T and C's

I was looking at getting the goty edition awhile back but never actually got to the buying it stage, kept putting it off.

guess the time limit will give me a push to complete the game and and dlcs, have put in like 100hours but not completed the game tho have been meaning to go back and complete it(mw2, drangon age etc have distracted me).

I am trying to look into that at the moment (I have notified a couple of gaming websites as well, in case they want to investigate) - struggling to find an archived copy of the 'original' T&C atm though. They have definately removed all mention of DLC being 'yours to keep' from their website, a statement about which was on their PS+ FAQ page only yesterday!

Just a heads up.

The Killzone 3 beta doesn't support Move or 3D.
#19
I got fallout 3 goty for 7.99 in blockbusters, gamestation had one in their 4 for 20 offer in store a couple of weeks back, shop around and you will find!

There is a thread here about someone who spotted that DLC expires when your sub does (this was in June).
http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Plus/PS-Free-DLC-question/td-p/45852727
NB. I haven't read the whole thread so there maybe more detail somewhere.

I think every PS+ subscriber can download the theme but only the first 10,000 will get the KZ3 beta code.
Were you lucky enough?

PS. Thanks for your Res Evil 5 thread. I managed to get a copy from HMV in the end.

I played though completely 4times...and I have 4 kids and a wife to stop me playing :)

On another note anyone who bought Outrun ... The license between Ferrari and Sega has lapsed so PSN store has removed it (what if you need to re-download your purchase again) it's also set to be removed from XBLA in DEC 2010

Without sight of the terms to sign-up for a PlayStation Plus membership (as I have never been a subscriber), may I suggest that the ambiguity of the word "selected" may also be a cause for concern?

Taken from a response to a comment within the Official EU PlayStation Blog entry, "PlayStation Plus; Check Out What It’s All About", dated 15 June 2010:

Posted on 16 June, 2010 at 12:21 am by James Thorpe

you do keep all the avatars, themes and selected game add-ons. you get access to all the games while your a member, plus the other features, like the full game trials, automatic downloads. And of course you keep anyting you buy with the member-only discounts on the Store. Plus you keep LBP if you sign up in time. hope that sounds appealing


(Yes, "anyting")

This statement may be interpreted as the selection available to the PlayStation Plus members, or a sub-selection of the content available.

BFN,

Whoop whoop whoop

Shame I get my email on the 25th!!! How on earth am I gonna be able to pull myself away from fallout ahhhh and vie only got 8 days to play medal of honour before that!!!

I'm a full 12 month member and will have to emit that this is the only thing so far that is actually worth while lol
#34
Ps3 is so fn useless you download your game eg streetfighter 2 Turbo Hd 303 meg you goto play it after download eventually finishes .. MaxDSL 2meg+ connection 228k a second avg* you start it it tells you the latest software has been found 1.10 and you need to download it (303 meg again)

It's pathetic designed firmware / system utilisation and is partly the reason I hardly play the system my 360 gets more play and I'm sure it puts others off when you have hundreds of games that need constantly updating in this manner (patches can be small you know Sony / Developers like the updates a game gets over live for instance.
#35
Or u could just sign up to the beta on the official kilzone site

And them people saying they've already recieved a email confirming they've got a beta code are talking **** as there not even sending them out for another week as it says on the official site

The method of updating titles either by full download, rather than by incremental patching (for example, "Burnout Paradise", "Pain", "Killzone 2", "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2", & many others) is determined by the individual developer/publisher; not Sony's infrastructure.

#37
damn i just downloaded theme...i guess im not gonna get beta :(
#38
^Hence my Sony / Developers (text) and system utilisation (as the firmware is also responsible for this as can be demonstrated by the "You cannot perform background download of this content) It's ultimately Sony's infrastructure to TELL other developers HOW it REQUIRES them to use patching for these updates in order to be accepted onto the PSN.
#39
Also the firmware / system for PSN store should be aware that the street fighter download had a new full update and offered that instead of the first (defunct)one

Well that pretty much sucks, and confirms that I won't be bothering with PS+ in its current format.

I can't believe that we were led to believe otherwise in the Blog entries and FAQs that were posted in support of PS+, stating that DLC would be 'yours to keep'.
