    You can pause the downloads from the XMB surely?

    @StixxUK You don't need to download them, just "purchase" them from the store. To be absolutely sure I usually start the download but immediately cancel it. If you've got the red symbol when you go back then you know you've "bought" it and then you can download it whenever you want (whilst on PS+ anyway).

    Just wondering since you've posted in the Plus thread, but can't you restore your game saves from the cloud if you're a Plus member? Apologies if I misunderstood! I hope you can get it back.

    @santashi

    That's a good point actually although I've only had plus a few weeks does it upload saves for games you've played or for all your game saves?

    @Rens11 I've found that whenever I put a new game in (or start a PSN one) it asks me if I want to allow it to upload the save data automatically. When I first got it a few months ago I manually went to the save files section and selected something along the lines of 'backup all save data to cloud' in order to backup the saves that were already on there. The PS3 turns itself on automatically to backup files if you allow it to do so. Hopefully you've done some of that.

    @Rens11 - if you've still got the 60GB drive, you could put it back in your PS3 in order to do another backup. Hopefully that one would be OK.

    looks like I've got most of my saves still :D that's the most important thing

    @Koisgan wiped the original drive after backing up to a USB so looks like my game data is gone for good

    I'm not getting my hopes up, there's not enough back catalogue content to give away anything amazing, so I predict:

    Wipeout 2048 as the 'OMG' get people signed up game
    Then lots of PSOne, PSP and Mini content since that can be shared with the PS3+.
    And Reality Fighters.

    Just having the cloud saves will make it great value for me in any case, so as long as a few of the PSOne/Minis are half decent then I'll be over the moon.

    have just ordered one of Sony's outrageously priced 32gb cards, so i really hope there are some corkers when PS Plus finally arrives on Vita!

    @Rens11 seriously? People are complaining??? Jees! It's a superb deal. I was actually ready to add a sub for the VITA despite already having the PS3 one. It is a service full of nothing but win for us.
    Some people...
    I love this image.

    So much so I used it in a presentation I gave the other day (on a slide titled What Gamers Want?), unfortunately the reference was lost on them I think. Sullen bastards. :D

    I haven't been on the PS Store in a few weeks so just went on to download everything I missed. I went to 'Freebies' and was greeted with a further 5 'Freebies' icons. Clicking the first had some of the games I was expecting but also had Starhawk on there, I clicked on that and was greeted with a further 4 Starhawk icons. Clicking the first revealed 'Starawk - Campaign Mode (Full Game)' for free and 'Starhawk - Multiplayer Mode (Full Game)' offered for 16 as well as a couple 'Game Packs' (which is what filled the other 3 Starhawk icons as well).

    I don't recall hearing that the Starhawk campaign mode was being offered for free nor that it was coming so was it mistakenly put up or what?

    Ahh, ok, thanks, never saw that. I'm interested to try the single player, I played the beta once or twice but didn't think much of it.

    Hiya guys I am thinking of picking up ps+ for 3 months as a trial and was wondering if you could recommend it or if it isn't worth it at the moment

    Yep. I went with three months as a trial, too, back in August, and think it was very much worth it- so much so that I recently added a year to my subscription.

    I've got to play some great games (Just Cause 2!) that I'd been wanting to try, while the automatic backing up of files is very handy. The extra discounts, trials, etc are actually quite decent as well.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what they add for the Vita, too.

    Yeah, me too. I signed up recently and I'm well impressed.

    Plus it means I can get some use out of my launch PS3 with a knackered BR drive.

    Roll on Vita plus!

    Bulletstorm is great fun - certainly worth downloading if you haven't played it!

    Resi 5 any good?
