Is PS+ an appropiate apology?

Playstation Plus really hasn't "wowed" me in a while. Maybe I expected too much? Seems like a lot of avatars and themes and not enough substance.

I'm not a PS+ subscriber, but I agree with him.

 

To me, the most decent things available for PS+ users are discounts, and I hardly think they add up to $50 a year.

PSN+ is a shoddy thank-you gift. It's a transparent attempt to raise additional revenue, by either getting people to buy games with the Plus discount, or to subscribe to Plus. Or, hey, maybe Sony will just drive more disgruntled people into the arms of Microsoft when they realize that their free PSN+ "thank you" games expire at the end of the PSN+ trial period. What will people really get out of this deal? Some free avatars or themes are all they'll get to keep. (Well, and free DLC, potentially.)

 

I recognize that Sony needs to get their income stream going again ASAP, but c'mon, Sony, don't try to pretend that an obvious money-making ploy is a boon to people. For the sake of full disclosure, I'm a PSN+ subscriber (with somewhat mixed feelings about the service, though I'm generally happy with it), so hey, a free month makes me happy. However, I suspect that others, principally those who aren't currently PSN+ subs, will end up being less than enthusiastic about this "gift," and they may even feel rather used by it.

I'm not fussed if I don't get to keep my PS+ stuff after the end of the trial, avatars and themes are okay because I use them everyday but DLC, I'd complete that straight away so it's over and done with quickly. I'm not bothered if we don't get a thank-you gift at the end of all this mayhem, I just want online back.worship
