    Always wanted to try All 4 one but didn't want to pay much as it's not R&C as I know and love. So looking forward to this one!

    Would like the Trilogy to be discounted around christmas if possible too (rudely expects more from an already fantastic service).

    Most definitely. It's amazing how many people on PS Blog complain that the 'free' games are all too old. Ungrateful sods.

    In other news - According to the PS Blog - details of PS+ Vita will be announced next week :D

    Hey guys

    I'm looking through the Store at the mo and it's saying Assasin's Creed Brotherhood and II are free to Plus users. I'm suspecting this is Trial versions, can someone already on Plus confirm....it's not very clear.

    They're the trials.

    By the way, is it normal to get an email saying that your subscription is nearly up and you should renew when you have a year left?

    I have this on trial at the moment. I recall someone mentioning that with Plus you can get the PS3 to download all your game updates in the background? Is that right? How can I turn that on?

    It's somewhere in the settings, it's at the top of one of the list and has a Plus logo next to it so it's not hard to find.

    How'd you get a trial?

    @King_Edward Apparently there were some trial codes being given away through the Playstation Access Facebook page. Unfortunately, because I never have/never will have Facebook, I can't tell if they're still running the promotion (started on 9th November).

    Feel free to have a look...

    So that auto update thing ran and it was at least a couple of hours if not more before my PS3 turned off again. I don't even have that many games ffs.

    They really need to fix their patching system next gen.

    Think you can set the time sure mine does it between 2-4am leave it on standby and it turns itself on to do it

    Sure, but it was more that some poor bastard without plus is likely waiting hours without the option to run it in the middle of the night. Turns out it only updated three things.

    Yeah the Wifi on my PS3 is probably the slowest on any gadget I've ever owned. Got an ethernet cable going to it and now the downloads are how they should be

    Worth noting that Virgin 100mb takes a serious pounding in the evenings. Do a DL at the crack of dawn and marvel at the difference. They say they don't throttle. I say they're full of shit..

    You must have a really fast connection if it updated GT5 in a couple of hours!

    Edit: well, you did write it was pretty good. :-)

    And yes, the poor bastards without + do wait forever for their GT5s to update. Luckily you aren't one of them.

    With already paying for live, and happy to do so, I've never considered PSN Plus but as time has passed it feels like it could be good value.

    A question I can't seem to see a simple answer for is;

    You download your 'free' game, is ths free to play so long as you continue to subscribe or does it auto expire after a certain amount of time?

    Thanks

    @Fourwisemen

    Once you "buy" the "free" game, it's yours for as long as you subscribe. Once your subscription expires, the games expire (or in some cases return to trials). If you re-subscribe, you get access to the games again.

    Games go through rotas. Once the rota is complete, the games are replaced with another one. If you didn't download or "buy" the free game before the rota is over, you can't download that game for free unless it comes round again (you can still buy it but likely at full price).

    Games you buy at a discount are yours regardless of whether you're a subscriber or not.

    Hope that answers your question.
