Sony released its PS3 firmware update 3.40 and with it PlayStation Plus, but people have been asking if the yearly $50 subscription is worth it. The update also brought with it the ability to upload photos to Facebook and videos to YouTube, making it one of the most feature rich apps yet.
PS3 users have now had a day with the latest firmware update with PlayStation Plus — well most of us as some have experienced download problems. IGN has sat down with a few of its team to discuss the pros and cons of the update.
Colin Moriarty has said that he has already got back more than half his $50 in one game download alone, and that was just in the first night of signing up to PlayStation Plus. If you live your life around PSN, then you will know that this is a good deal.
The idea of getting free games each month is certainly a nice idea, but to keep access to them you need to keep up with your subscription. The moment you stop paying you will lose all the games — Greg Miller does not have a problem with this, as this is just how Netfilx works.
To give you an idea on just how good a deal PlayStation Plus is, WipEout is normally $20, but it is free for those who sign up that’s just one game. So say you get a free $20 game each month, then that would cost you $240 per year, so the $50 fee does not seem that high after all.
