Oh boy! So you mean, I can feel like I own 12 BRAND NEW GAMES until my PS+ membership expires and then suddenly I have NOTHING. I'll pass. I'd much rather buy a system where I can have an actual copy of 1 game (that I can play forever, or trade in, sell or give to a friend when I'm done with it) than the veiled promise of 12.
Well a years worth is only 50 bucks, you have a year to scrape up 50 bucks in time for the renewal. So if you give Sony 50 bucks before year is up, you still have your games. If you have the money to buy a PS3, you can get a years worth of PS+ or if you're short at hte end of the year you can pay for a month long subscription which is what 6 bucks?
Think about it. You finish many games within a year and it's likely you'll want to return to only a few down the road. It's won't be devastating to lose your games if you choose to let your PS+ membership expire. It's like handing a game off to your friend. You part with it, buy new games, and move on.
People seem to forget that its not only free games but discounts. If you buy the game with discount its yours forever. The only time you might lose a game is only if you got it for free with your membership. They also point this out when you get the free game. I have PS+ and love it. I got 3 games this week with the 75% off promotion for Playstation Plus members "Little big planet karting, Unfinished Swan, and Hot Shots Golf complete" all for $20. These games would normally cost you around $70 to buy altogether. The discounts pay for the membership and you keep the discounted games forever. So it's like STEAM for the console.

What if I told you that you get at least 3 PS3 or PSN games every month on top of those 12 games? (3 * 11) + 12 = 45. Now add in the Vita games: 6 when you sign up and 2 every month after that. (11 * 2) + 6 = 28.
Hi all! I'd love to know--for those who have used it--does the plus promotional code require credit card information be present on your account or the PS3? I need a new PS3--Red/Yellow light-- and, well I was looking into this instant games bundle. But, I am worried that when I attempt to redeem my code that it will prompt me for credit card info. Has this happened to anyone, or does it function as a normal PSN/PLUS card would? I posted in another forum just to increase the odds that I catch any wondering eyes, in hopes of some kind of reply. Thanks, in advance, for any response.
