    psn question.

    I still have my month free ps plus membership from when I joined psn. This is available on my ps3 for activation. I was saving it for a rainy day but today I will unbox my brand new ps4 will it be available also for ps4 or will I lose it? can anyone answer? as maybe I get free ps plus trial on both consoles I'm really not sure and don't want to waste anything especially when I have little games atm.

    any help be so greatfully appreciated

    much thanks x

    Pretty sure psn subscription carries over, console independent. I don't think you'll get another free trial but the trial you already have will work on the ps4

    carrys over its linked to account not console, so you can have it on ps3,vita and ps4 but you only get one free trial, pretty sure it doesn't give you the free games

    It does give access to the PS Plus games, they'll be playable as long as the trial lasts. When the trial ends they'll have a lock on them, to play them again you'll need to subscribe.

    Not true. You can add them to your library and download/install whenever your PS+ is active. Once downloaded and installed you can play them without PS+/internet connection. Once you uninstall them they still gonna be listed in your library available for download when you subscribe back to PS+.

    Simply:
    With PS+ you can add monthly freebies to your library and they will stay there forever.
    You can download them only when PS+ is active.
    You can play them even when PS+ is not active.

    Unless any of them requires internet connection for online features (like multiplayer) those are useless without PS+

    What I said is wholly correct. When your trial/subscription ends a lock will be placed on all free games downloaded in that period. If you click on one of said games you will get this message "Cannot use the content. Your licence has expired. To use the content, purchase it from Playstation Store."

    Nope sorry but you're totally incorrect - once your subscription lapses you lose access to all games you got as part of your membership. Installed games will stay on your hard drive but will not start.

    Yep, you're right. Apologies for saying you're wrong without proper check!
