    Thanks. Gonna have to wait until my order for unlimited broadband has gone through before downloading that one. Just download Call of Jizz: Cumslinger at the moment. Only 1.9GB.

    I'm using the 30 day trial just now and still got over 20 days left. I know if you don't cancel it before, it goes onto a 90 day sub but I'm going to get the 12 month card from Game as Ive got credit to get it a bit cheaper. Just wanted to know if I entered the code before my trial finishes, would it just start as soon as the trial finishes or straight away ? And if I stopped automatic payment on my ps3 to prevent money being taken out in case I forget, would that cancel my trial too ?

    Weird. I've downloaded uncharted 3 twice now at the cost of about 60gig of bandwidth. First time it all downloaded then didn't appear in my games list. Second attempt it appeared in my games list for a couple of days but now has vanished again.

    Anyone else had problems? Don't want to waste another thirty gigs

    Did you download the MP too? if you download the SP it'll appear in the game files folder as 'Additional content' or something but to access the game you have to download the MP component too. Yes it's dumb.

    Uncharted 3, don't forget the 3d pack. I think it's called.

    Just bought my first sub. Downloading uncharted 3, xcom, demons souls and ico/sotc. All games I haven't played.

    Frankly gobsmacked at how immense this is and has pretty much cemented my ps4 pre order.

    Bravo Sony.

    Yup... After searching for and installing the free to play multilayer it works fine.

    @PrivateFloyd

    Add the Vita stuff to your download queue as well. Then you'll have them available should you buy a Vita.

    @X201 I have had a vita before, wont be getting one again.

    Lovely piece of kit but I literally don't get the time!! 5 minute commute to work and a 1 year old at home!!

    It'll probably take me until GTAV is released to complete the 5 I have just downloaded!!

    I reinforce what the Private says, stack all Vita games onto your download list (and then cancel the downloads) so if and when you pick up a Vita, you've got a load of games to be playing.

    This is mental - all I keep seeing is people talking about how good PS Plus is, and it looks like I'm about to agree, by buying a PS3 (mainly for The Last of Us).

    The question I have is whether it is possible to access all of the past games that have been available on PS+ or, if I join now, do I just get the ones that have been released from this month onwards ?

    @TheBlackDog

    Now onward. But can download them at any time during your sub, as long as you have gone through the checkout process with them.

    Speaking of which, here's a question. If my PS+ sub expires, what happens if I try to play one of my PS+ free games offline with an old system date set?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    It won't work. It doesn't use the system date to calculate how much time on your PS+ sub you have remaining.

    Never been on PS+ for Vita, as far as I know. And the game isn't cross-buy either.

    I don't know. I can only speculate it operates in terms of time passed/time remaining (miliseconds or whatever) plus an "expired" tag which, unless removed online, definitely says something cannot be played any more.

    @X201 Thanks. I want to get some (most) of the games that are currently available on the PS+ store, and which are about to expire.

    Does anyone know if I can set up a PS+ account without owning a PS3 at the moment. And then checkout the games or whatever I have to do, and then download them when i do actually own a PS3 ?? Definitely without having to do anything on the PS3 (which I don't have) ?

    Yeah you can do that TBD. Just add the games from this link, checkout and complete the purchase. They are then added to your Download List to download at your leisure, eg: when you get a PS3/Vita/PSP etc..

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Not sure if you already have a PSN ID /SEN account. Read this if not.

    @X201 @mrpon Thanks for that. Set-up the first stage of the account (On the Sony Entertainment Network site). Then run in to problems when going to complete further details on the PSN site, as I originally said I wanted a UK account, but I actually live in France. Halted there for a moment while I wait for a response from PSN support about best way to do it.

    Question: has anyone successfully set-up a UK account as their main account from France (or elsewhere in the EU I suppose) ??

    I could use a relatives address in the UK and just use Paypal/points, which is what I do with Xbox Live but don't know if I'm going to run in to problems with IP address checking and region restrictions if buying UK content (all Xbox Arcade titles are fine, but its the Games on Demand stuff that don't always work because I'm on a UK account in France).

    Main thing I would want it for is the Instant Game Collection PS+ games. If I have a French account I thought I read that I'd struggle to get the games in English. Most Games on Demand on Xbox give me the English option if I download it in France as I have my console region and language set to UK. But as I've never owned a PS3 I don't have any idea about what to expect.

    Any knowledgeable EG'ers in Europe that can give me a clue ?
