And half the replies here are bandwagoners too, needing to feel cool cause theyre bucking the system. Get em tiger!Lol, posting a thread about the opinions of Reddit users. I'd rather punch myself in the dick than read the comments of those cunts fucks at reddit.
Im sure sony will have seasonal sales on the subscriptions and people will gobble it right back up.
The company that won you over during the PS3 era ?Funny, I did the same thing during the end of the PS4 generation. Sony announced the list of PLUS games that would be available only for those who bought a PS5...
BUT if you activated the games on the PS5, you could still play them on the PS4.
I thought to myself: I've been subscribing to this since it launched on the PS3, even when it wasn't available in Brazil yet, going through the trouble of buying from the American/Canadian store.
After so many years of being a consumer of their product, they blocked me and there's not even a technical limitation.
This is no longer the company that won me over during the PS3 era. Fuck Sony.
You see, for me it was all about the exclusivesThe company that won you over during the PS3 era ?
Are talking about the era that :
- they released their console at 600 Eurodollars 1+year after the Xbox 360 ?
- most of the multiplatform games ran worse on it ?
- they took out backwards compatibility from European models ?
- They took out the option of installing Linux after a while because "piracy" ?
- PSN being free but being barebones and light years behind Xbox live ?
- the PSN hack fiasco ?
I mean, you/we can sing Sony all the praises we want but the PS3 era is the wrong one to choose when it comes to "goodwill" friend.
PS1, PS2 and even the PS4 ones were much, much better than the PS3 one
The question is - do you need to play so many games? If you are subscribed you have that pressure “I need to play it, otherwise I’m wasting money”. Remember time is much more valuable than money.Eh, it's still worth it for me most likely. 125 euros a year means I would need to play at least four 30 eur games per year for it to be worth it. I think most of the games I have played lately have been from ps+, and they were usually in the 30+ euros range.
It's so sad we the consumers just give up for free. Truly insane.Some, sure.
But let's be honest:
When Sony put online multiplayer behind PS+, everybody was supposedly going to boycot it, yet here we are, paying for PS+.
The same will happen with the price increase, just like with the price increase for games.
Noble cause, but pointless battle.
Yeah about that I agree, it should be a built in feature. In fact I resumed because I lost my FFX (PS4) saves, I know it is dumb but I had 6 months for sub back or they'd delete my cloud saves... And I thought "oh if I sub again, let's take the Premium"...It's Very shitty that something Basic as cloud saves requires a 80$ subscription lol.
While this is true, especially since I have a backlog of about 20 years, I enjoy the ability to casually stroll through the extra catalogue and try games out on a whim. I cant count how many times Ive found an obscure new favorite just by coincidence. That peace of mind to have nearly endless (hundreds) of options whenever Im in the mood makes it valuable for me. I tend to be finnicky about what Im in the mood for, so I dont hold myself down to limited amount or time required for playing. Thats just me though!The question is - do you need to play so many games? If you are subscribed you have that pressure “I need to play it, otherwise I’m wasting money”.

Gaming rights shall not be infringed!!It's so sad we the consumers just give up for free. Truly insane.
And WTF is $1-$2 over 12 months?Microsoft raised it $1-$2 not $20.
But corporate defenders like you are the reason you pay Sony for Cloud saves. Enjoy the $20 price increase. You’re the problem.
And WTF is $1-$2 over 12 months?
As to the bold, pretty hilarious line when you’re being a corporate defender in this very post.
MS increased it by $1-$2 a month.
+$20 Plus is over a year..
PoE is really good! (Loading times suck)I was tempted to go for $60 Essential sub before the price hike but then I figured the only thing I will be using it for would be Diablo 4 multiplayer...which I almost never play FML
I have BG3 incoming this month for Mac, Pillars of Eternity I started + Phantom Liberty end September. I should be good for half a year.
Yea i eventually put a 2tb ssd in my system storage and it got about 30% quicker. I used a stopwatch to measure the difference. Still not as quick as sata3 or m2 whatever formatsI
If it helps I upgraded my PS4 Pro HDD for SSD because I couldn't stomach Witcher 3 loading times.

Short term thinking. Sure, raising prices excites the market and stock price goes up. Later, if the revenue drops, the stock price falls. Stock price isn't revenue, it's valuation. Valuation doesn't pay bills. People unsubscribing could lower revenue, which could affect P/S ratio, which could affect valuation, which could lower stock price.As much as I hate to say this, Sony doesn't give a fuck about losing a few subscribers. Their stock just went up.
Sony Group Corp. rose its most in more than a month after hiking the price of its core gaming PlayStation Plus subscription service by roughly a third, potentially shoring up its bottom line.www.bloomberg.com
It wasn't taken out, the method use was changed.- they took out backwards compatibility from European models ?
