I've had PS Plus for almost a year now, in three months I'll need to subscribe again. Personally, outside of Steam sales it's one of the best investments I've made for console gaming. Games on the Playstation store will go on sale here and there, and most of the time Plus members will also get a discount ON TOP of the discount regular users pay. Might not be for the absolute best games on PSN, but sometimes some great deals happen that I've jumped on, like Resident Evil 4 and 5 (Gold edition).
I've also gotten a slew of free games. Some I've played for 20 minutes and deleted, others are still on my hard drive like Little Big Planet 2. The great thing about Plus is this; if you see a free game, make the "purchase" (you won't spend money, but you still need to make it through a purchase) from the Store, and you can either download it then and there or for later. As long as you have a subscription, you can go to your Download list from your PSN account and get the game again. I had a month of Plus after the big downtime from 2 years (?) ago, got some free games that way. After a few months without Plus, I decided to get it for a full year and those games I got from that month could still be accessed for my account.
They've also added cloud storage (1 GB) and daily checks for your system which include backing up game saves to the cloud, checking recent games for patches and downloads, and applying those downloads for either your games or a system update all while you sleep / are out etc.
Rex, I don't think that SSF4 AE needs an online code to play multiplayer. But, you can always go through the PSN store for your game and check if you'd need to buy one there (that would most likely be the place to do so if you bought a used game and it asks for an online code).
Have a good one!
