The PS+ '12 Gifts'

31 Replies 640 Views Created 01-12-2011

So the PS+ gift promotion has been unveiled on the blog and there appears to be so much dissension.

 

I'm a subscriber and I don't feel hard done by, It's only business after all to tempt new customers into the fold.

 

It's not their main update for the month, its a little bonus for if you missed any content previously or as I said to tempt new customers.

Some people though don't share that view and feel that they are personally being ripped off and that Sony owes them more as they already own the content.

 

What's your stand?

I really don't understand what they're moaning about.

 

I'd love to be a fly on the wall in that office when they update the blog sometimes and hear their real reactions to some of these brats.

I think its absolutely awful that I am still getting the usual content this month and have so far got more than my moneys worth from plus. Its an outrage that they would try and entice more people to sign up to plus by giving them extra content, just like they did when I subscribed and got a game with my sub. Why do Sony keep on doing things like this?

The ps+ content has been shocking the last couple of months. Maybe need some new subs to replace those who cancelled theirs? Cancelled mine like 3 days after being charged for a further  11.99 >.<

I wasn't moaning, or didn't mean to sound as much.  I just took that comment as representative of the toys being thrown out of the pram over on the blog.

 

Either that or he could have just have read the 'I'm a subscriber' part of the post and presumed I was off on a rant.

 

There seems to be so much hate over on the blog recently and most of it from people who give the impression that they feel Sony are only there to cater for their whims and nobody else's.

 

I was just wondering what everybody else thought of the commotion, justified or not?

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Oh well i have all of them no biggy though.

I've just had a thought are these games for all to keep perm or is it like normal plus you only get to keep them for a time.

Because if it is permanent then people who already have from plus could get them with out losing them if their sub runs out.

This is similar to the 5 free games after the outage scenario, you cant please everyone and some people will have no need for the content.

 

Personally as I said before I believe it's only a promotion to gather a new uptake into the scheme, but for those of us that have been members for most of the time its gives us a chance to grab anything we may have missed previously.

 

It's nice to see civility and maturity though, the blog's become a bit of a minefield of late.

In case anyone was wondering, my previous post was sarcastic and not aimed at the OP but the moaners that are out there. I don't mind them being given away again, makes no difference to me.

To be fair I was VERY sceptical of PS+ including lines such as the console cost me enough why should I pay more? 

 

Oh well afte the PSN outage and the free trial I came to realise that for the cloud saves and not having to wait on updates made it worth my while, I sub at 3 months at a time just cos its easier for me I know subing for the year is cheaper I would if I could but I cant.

 

I have several things from the listed as is but oh well not to worry. I enjoy my PS+ it has its uses lol. cept when they entice me with all 3 crash bandicoots and i can only have 2 lol!!

 

On another note I agree I'd love to be ion the office when the blog guys read some of the whiners posts surprised some dont created secondary accounts just to give em abuse in reply ... I know I would ....

ps plus is very hit and miss, i only bought 3 months cause i was going to buy code veronica anyway and figured i might as well have the discount. Since then got £1 off back to the future and downloaded where is my heart, which i played for about 5 minutes, bit tired of retro games.
