So during their Gamescom conference Sony announced they'll be offering PS plus subscriptions for 25% off in Europe for 2 weeks from September 4th. This is the tipping point for me, I never thought I'd pay a subscription gaming service but for what amounts to £30 ($47) less than the price of a new game and considering the amount of free games they've been putting up lately this seems like stupidly good value.
PS Plus 25% off in Europe...Dammit Sony you finally got me
Yeah I have actually played most of the big ticket games they've put up recently but taking a gamble that in the course of a year they'll be a few that I haven't. Even just the free mini's and early beta access/cloud saving stuff is attractive at that price.
It's so worth it in my opinion. For every game you already owned there are tons more you would have never checked out. I played Just Cause 2 thanks to PS Plus and it is now one of my favorite games this generation. Also people highlight the free games but I think the discounts are great as well. You can always expect a Sony published PSN title to have at least a couple $$ shaved off at launch.
