I saw this in HMV in Rochdale. Playstation Plus 365 Day subcription for £29.99 - I'd seen the same item on the Playstation Store for £39.99!

Deal!

In-Store only

any knows the voucher can be used yet?

Best £30 you could spend buying this. Yes it may be a rental fee, but for me I've had it since day one, for a few quid a month, you get it back from the saving on game discounts if you buy a lot on psn.

Good deal, seems to be recurring one though (which is good for everyone).

Does anyone know if HMV are still accepting trade ins?

I am sure these have been that price for long time (instore @ HMV).

"I'd seen the same item on the Playstation Store for £39.99!"

oh well done for seeing something every single ps3 owner who goes on the psn(doesn't have to be a ps+ member) can see, seeing as that's the rrp.

in case you weren't aware it was £29.99 on the psn recently for a short period of time(can't remember exact dates), most if not all retailer/etailers that sale the ps+ 365 days sub were doing it for £29.99 for that period. not sure if they still are or not but sainsburys had them at £29.99(I saw it at mine a couple weeks bck, also a few others posted on here as well at other branches) after the psn had put the price back up.

I was in my local hmv and I'm sure it said £39.99 on the shelf, if I'd seen this earlier while I was in town I'd have asked.

I heard that GTA V will be January's 2023 PS+ freebie

Good deal - they sometimes drop to this price on PSN too. I bought it over Christmas direct from PSN for the same price and they've currently got the 90 day subs reduced from £11.99 to £7.99.

I'm still reluctant to stock up too heavily on these. PS4 is going to be announced next week, to be released later in the year - there's no guarantee that PS4 will have PS+ in the same way as the PS3, assuming it even has it at all. There isn't even any guarantee that the PS4 will be backwards compatible so all of the games you've amassed on plus may not be playable should you replace your PS3 with a PS4 in the coming year or so.
In other words, I'll be waiting until after the Sony announcement on the 20th to buy any more PS+ subscription.

Lets just hope the ps4 supports the same cards then shall we?

How can you be sure its the ps4 they're announcing next week? It could be anything for all we know, could be the new addition to their spell book collection.

If you download the free games for vita and the ps3... once the psn remove the games from the market place can you still play the games with a valid psn subscription .. like for as long as you like and keep them on the hd / memory card ??

Cheers

You can play them for as long as your subscription lasts. Also so long as you "purchased" them from the store while they were available you can redownload them again whenever you like from your download history. If you stop subscribing and then resubscribe again later you can still download and use the ones you got on the previous sub aswell. The only time you lose access is when you don't have an active sub.

Heat from me, but I dunno about stocking up.

Cex are selling them for £28 in a couple of stores, but they are only buying the cards for £14, so not much chance of making money selling them on.

Yeah they have been this price in my local store for over a month now at least.

It's possible, but they don't often hold events for trivial things like that. It's going to be something big. Regardless though - if they don't announce it next week, it'll be at GDC or E3. Both of which happen LONG before my current PS+ runs out. Then the chances of the PS4 not being out by the time my PS+ runs out is minimal.

While its not a good idea to stock up too many, people here are making it sound like the second the PS4 is announced their PS3 wont exist anymore. Does noone remember that launch games are almost always awful?

I can't see Sony putting in the same effort to get great PS3 games on PS+ once PS4 is out, IF the games aren't compatible. So if you stack subscriptions you'll still play what you've got but I wouldn't expect more. If PS4 is compatible though, hooray! I've got an extra year stacked as I don't expect to get a PS4 straightaway and if I hear its backward compatible then I'll probably get more.

I wouldn't expect support to fall away that quickly. For a good while PS3 users will still vastly outnumber PS4 users. Plus sony tend to carry on supporting older consoles fairly well. The PS2 got some great games after the PS3 had launched.

Yes - sure - like after the hacking fiasco, Nintendo announcing they are selling U at a loss just to get sales and with one of the BIG UNS probably inches from going down the toilet - Im SURE Sony will make the faux pas (mods wont allow C**k UP) of saying.....

" Hey remember we sold you an annual membership you now cant use if you buy our NEW system - hello? HELLO? (door slams in background)"

The peeps who buy ANNUAL membership are die hards and want to stay team-sonny, why would they want to chase them/us/you away?

Let's hope that the big announcement on the 20th is that PS+ will be free for everyone.

£8 for 90 days of PS+ available on PSN at the moment, so not bad if you don't want to wait.

Checked my local, its still £39.99.

PS+ won't be free and it shouldn't be. Its a steal as it is. I'm also quite confident it will work with PS4 no problem.

Does this make the service any more like Xbox Live or is it still just a rent-a-game option?

Last time I tried an online game on the PS3 it just sucked so much in comparison.

I take it nothing much has changed then, and it still sucks. I'm certainly not going to update my firmware and waste £30 on the off chance.

nb - I guess you have never seen what you are missing, but there are no adverts in Xbox Live when used to launch multiplayer games. The only adverts are when browsing the general contents via the dashboard and using the associated dashboard apps...

lol, richto, you're not convincing anyone.

Your every bit a PS3 fanboy by trying to justify your PS+ fees when you added your own fanboy comment in your reply..

Xbox Live "Game and Video Promotions" are set to ON as a DEFAULT.on the dashboard and this can just as easily be set to OFF.

Go to "Settings" then "Privacy" click "Change Settings" then click "Customize" scroll down to "Content" select "Programming and then Family.
All adverts and promotions are switched off and as this is only a local setting to the dashboard it does not affect any other settings you have made...............

I use PSN store and its far from the smooth ride you are making it out to be SPEED being one of the many issues I have even after the update that was supposed to of somewhat fixed this.

lol, this is a deal for PS+, therefore I don't need to justify myself, I think a person commenting about xbox on a PS+ deal needs to justify themselves, which richto failed to do.
Only an idiot would say that access to 20+ games a year for £30, was worse than no games, rental or not.
Now run along young 'un.

At least you'll get a free "Like" from the retired fanboy freed79 AKA chelskii
