    Yup, I really don't get Malicious. Attacking feels about as limp as flicking bodily fluids and not as satisfying.

    I got on much better in Malicious after I read the manual. Using the punch and the chain attack together worked pretty well for me, although I haven't done much of the game yet.

    Right these PS+ freebies are finally convincing me to shell out for a PS3, wife be damned. Quick question though, what's the minimum HD size I should go for, assuming I want to make the most of these free downloads? Roughly how big is a typical game?

    A retail release like Arkham City can easily be upwards of 10 GB. Some games will be much smaller (like The Cave - 1 GB), some will be much larger (Ni No Kuni - 22 GB). You typically need 2x the free space of a game to download and install it, although e.g. the aforementioned Ni No Kuni comes in 2 chunks, so it's a little less.

    I'd say a comfortable minimum would be 320 GB, but depending on your habits and how many games you like to keep on your HDD at once you may be upgrading to a 1 TB drive after a few months.

    It's been said many times but remember you don't need to download a game once you've bought it (with PS+ or otherwise), it's always going to be there on your download list so you can access it at any time when you have space on the HDD.

    ... and the web store is a lot easier to use than the PS3 store.

    Here's a top tip for PS+ users struggling for disk space (like me). Go to the PS3's 'Game Data Utility', and delete all the big downloaded update files for games you don't play anymore.

    I had a clear-out last night and got back 22 GB of space!

    @chub Might as well delete the actual game as well if you don't play it anymore?! Can always download again

    @imamazed Actually the updates I deleted were for disc-based games, not PS+ downloaded games. I think when you delete a downloaded game it gets rid of the updates as well.

    Aye, I did the same last week. Discovered I had 25GB of installed MGS4 data on there. Haven't even owned it for 5 years. Those mandatory installs all add up.

    @chub Ah I see, fair enough.

    Yeh I'm fine on space myself, but I might do that for a few rental games anyway

    There's a little advert popping up on the left of the forum stating that Terraria is free on PS+ - am I right in assuming that this is just a f***ed up advert for the trial version?

    Yeh I noticed that last night; I'm pretty sure it's saying the trial version is free...

    Which is not exactly worth shouting about is it!

    @Murbal - yep, the trial version is free, not the full game. That said, PS+'ers do get a 20% (?) discount.

    I'm waiting for the Vita version, TBH.
  • Deleted user 23 May 2013 10:08:23
    Any deals on PS+ subs around? Amazon looks like the cheapest at the moment.

    Hitman has taken an absolutely insane amount of time to download.
  • Deleted user 23 May 2013 10:46:58
    Cheers mrpon. Unfortunately I was a bit lax and didn't keep an eye on it so it lapsed today and I'm looking to get subscribed again asap (so I can keep playing Gravity Rush).

    Edit: Ordered from Amazon

    @Mr-Brett someone's flogging 3 months for 7 quid in the latest swapsies thread.
  • Deleted user 23 May 2013 15:37:43
    Looks like that's gone already. No problem though I can wait a day :)

    In case anyone was wondering about them, I bought a Ł35 PSN voucher for 30 notes a week or so back, they were pretty quick and if you like them on Facebook you get a 5% discount code.

    Guys, what time do games normally go up on PS+? Been waiting all morning for Ico and SOTC to go up.

    They fixed the framerate in SotC, yeah? Keen to give it a go at me then 5 fps.

    No, they kept the framerate the same, for the sake of us getting the most accurate experience. Huge monsters are meant to move slowly.

    Need to buy a hard drive come Friday. I've had a sub for 2 months now, snapped up all the games but been unable to download anything substantial.

    So many good games to play.

    This isn't funny anymore. I'm sat here refreshing PS+ on the net and on my PS3 every 10 minutes. Just waiting.

    Well no, they upped it from the really slow 15 or so to a cap of 30.
