well... if you are on a budget and are not interested in the other stuff, I would say it is not foolish.  Was surprised to find out that it was required for multiplayer, I always thought that was a plus in the ps column.

I might pick it up anyway due to the sale.  I don't play multiplayer enough these days to actually justify paying for it to be honest.


My post further up the on the last page needs to be quoted here to really show you what TiLT means when he says it's well worth having

So yes, it's pretty foolish not to get PS Plus, *especially* if you're on a budget! I don't buy games anymore. PS Plus has saved me so much money.

On the contrary, it's when you're on a budget that PS+ gives the best value. There are new free games available to you every month, and you get access to lower prices on a lot of stuff as well.

I picked up two $30 PS plus codes from Amazon. How awesome is that? I'm topped up until midway through 2016. By the way the PS plus codes also work for Canadian accounts.
think I'm only going to grab one, not sure I want to commit to having a Vita for 2 years.

I got one of those cheap codes on Amazon as well but just can't get it to register.  When I enter it my PS4 just kicks me to the dashboard, no confirmation or error or anything.

I'm not really sure timing comes into it. Reading between the lines of the latest PS Blog update about this thing, it seems the voucher registration might be bugged. Apparently it's taking up far more resources than it's supposed to, something they never noticed before now.

Obviously if you aren't in to any of the game supplied then yeah don't bother. However you do get to have access to all since you join so been there for a year and you have all of them available an dunlike MS they arent putting up a pile of shite.

Really it seems you have an issue with paying for Multi, which is fine but PSN+ in itself is a massive bargain. If you want free multiplayer then PC will be the only way to go in the future.

Don't be so sure. I wouldn't be surprised to see EA require payment for access to their multiplayer servers in the future.

Before they took down the verification servers, you couldn't redeem a plus subscription code on a PC.  You needed to do it on a PS3, PS4 or vita.  Once you've got an active plus subscription, you can use the web store to 'purchase' all the plus games available even if you don't have the system yet.

Should be able to go to the web store and add to cart there I think.

Good question. Paid online just started a couple of weeks ago so it might be a while before we get a decent idea of how the multiplayer holds up.

They figured out the online on the PS3. Then the extra stuff and matchmaking is now all as expected, and perhaps a little better than the 360.

You can form parties as normal, and party chat just works. There's multiple ways to join friends in gameplay besides invites and parties. You can see friends starting games in the activity feed and join there, or just watch the friends list. The friends list gives you more detailed info about what your friends are currently playing, so you can tell if they're in MP or SP.

It just shows the stuff being added in December, Resogun and Contrast were added in November. So it's correct.
