Default Re: PlayStation Plus

I just hope they don't screw regular PSN users with the sales. I look at the Wakeboarding game they have on sale right now for PSN+ users it's $11.99, but about 2 weeks ago everyone could have bought it for 50% off ($7.49). I just wonder if the next time they have a "sale" that PSN users will get it for $11.99 and PSN+ users for $7.49.

I am still ticked off at MS for the last sale, that excluded Shadow Complex for silver members (for the second time IIRC). It's the only thing I wanted to buy on the 360 for a long time now.

I wonder if they finally finalised the AU pricing.

Final.

Got a bunch of free DLC for games I liked, but didn't want to spend money on DLC for. Seems like in the long run I will definitely get my 50 dollars worth.
It's just greed. They launched Hulu because they wanted to make revenues off of shows that people were downloading. So they put in ads and kept the content free. Now they see how much traffic it gets, and they see an opportunity for profit, so they are going to charge a subscription fee.

Greedy bastards.

Then they'll release it in other regions, at an inflated price, and still have most content region locked. ::

I broke down and went for it; $50 for 15 months didn't seem like a bad deal. Although it would be nice if some of the benefits carried over to the video side of the service too

@ViN86, Hulu still has free shows but with the sub you get more of them and in 720p. Ads still there regardless though..
