  1. “Note: Extra treats during the month are only available to existing Plus members from on or before the 21st April 2011.”
    What’s that one supposed to mean?

    • Basically so long as you were a member on 21st April you are entitled to the extra treats. If your membership had lapsed then you don’t qualify.

  2. Sorry for being cynical but everybody has either got or had Burnout Paradise! But it might just get a few TSA meets for the old girl going again!

    • I thought it was a pleasant surprise.

      • Enjoyed paradise demo, but never took the plunge to buy & glad i didn’t, dloading now:)

      • I haven’t; I could only find it in those disgusting platinum cases, so I bought something else. I’m pretty stoked, so much free stuff! This should be done every year* ;)

        *I really don’t think that, I do really feel for Sony. But still, the free stuff…

    • That’s a bit of a ridiculous statement. Of course not ‘everybody’ has owned Burnout! Plenty of people didn’t so this is great. I am gonna download it even though I have it on disk just cos I like having games on the HDD

      • I havent owned/ played burnout for ps3.

    • I owned it on release day. Returned it the day after. But hey, its free! i wouldnt mind getting in on some meets

      • Who’s going to set the meet up?

    • Well, VGChartz says it’s sold just around 1.7m copies on BD, so even with PSN sales it must be still under 2m. I guess there’s still some room for improvement ;)

  3. Cant wait to play Streets of Rage online Co-op! Woohoo!! shotgun blaze ;)

  4. Streets of rage 2, they could’ve just offered me that and I’d have been chuffed ! :D

  5. There is a mega update for the store on the PS blog. It sounds decentish. We don’t get to keep the games do we?:(

    • Not from the PSN+ offers, not if you do not continue your PSN+, that’s how it works.

      You do get to keep your games from the Welcome Back package though.

  6. Oops! Timing, I just posted a link to this blog in the other store opening article.

  7. If you buy a discounted game, will you keep the game forever? Or will it last until PS+ lasts.

    • Discounted games you get to keep, it’s only freebies that expire when your membership does.

    • Under Siege? I know you want to

      • No Steven Seagal Jokes yet, I am ashamed of you all.

      • haha Moshi, remember, we got told off in the forums by someone connected to the game! ;)

      • It will always be a film to me.

  8. I can’t wait for Beyond Good and Evil! Spotted it on the advert bit and was wondering when we would get it .

  9. Can anyone inform us which games/content we will be allowed to keep once the free PS+ runs out? I don’t intend on renewing it beyond the free period.

    • Anything that was only free for Plus subscribers will expire when your membership does. Anything that is free to everyone or discounted by plus you get to keep

      • Thanks mate! :)

      • Ah! Thanks, I was hoping someone would ask (and answer) that. Cheers.

  10. James Pond 2: Codename Robocod


    • I might actually stump up for one of the Robocod avatars.

      Ocean software, oh what happy memories.

    • It brought out a little smile for me
