PlayStation Plus Membership Renewal

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 12, 2017 by getbent57

Back in September 2016 membership for a full year of PlayStation Plus here in Canada went up to $70.  Before that came it to effect renewed membership so I was good until June 2018.

The past few days PlayStation has been running a sale both in stores and online called Days of Play.  From June 9 to 17 they are all some great deals to be had.  One of them was PlayStation Plus going for it original price of $50 (on the PlayStation Store).  So I had to take advantage of that.  Which means I am good until June 2019 now.  If you are reading this today (June 12, 2017) there is still time get the deal for yourself.  It ends on the 16th.

PlayStation Plus Membership Price Increasing

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 18, 2016 by getbent57

PlaystationPlus.jpgIf you are a PlayStation Plus member you most likely know by now that the price is going up.  By a lot starting September 22, 2016.  They posted a statement > here.  You all would have received an email as well.   Start on that date a years membership will be $70 (Canadian money).   That is up from $50.

To get around this bought a new one year card. Added that to my account.  Which extends my membership by another year.  So that way  I will not have to worry about it until 2018.  I know this price increase has pissed off a lot of people.  Can see a lot of them not renewing.   If you are one of them make sure you have auto renewal in your account settings.

PlayStation Plus Subscription Price Increasing

PlaystationPlus.jpgHave just read some very bad news.  Which has me pissed off.  The price of the PlayStation Plus membership is increasing by a lot.  Am very aware the prices are all ways going up.  However the price increase for a years membership is crazy.  Starting September 22, 2016 a years membership will be $70 (Canadian money).  That is a twenty dollar increase.  Which is ridicules.  The other plans are going up as well.  The three month plan will be $30, used to be $18.  The one month plan will be $12, used to be $10.

Of course they put a stupid statement, “The new pricing reflects the current market conditions while enabling us to continue providing exceptional value to our members.”   You can read the full post > here.  Am not very happy about this.  Pretty sure there will be a lot of people will not be renewing there membership.

Am thinking I might just buy another years membership while it is sill $50 and just had it to my account.  That way I will not have to worry about it again until 2018.

PlayStation Plus Renewal

PlayStationPlusCard.jpgA few days back while play a game. Receive a pop notice from PlayStation, saying PlayStation Plus membership would be up in seven days. Unlike last year when I wait to the last minute. This time picked up a new card the next day at work. You can buy these cards pretty much any were now. I know $50 seems like a lot but it covers a full year. The perks it gives is well worth the money. This past year there has been may awesome games free for members.

Broforce

BroforceOne of the free games for PlayStation Plus members in March (2016) was Broforce.   Back then didn’t try it out. But to put in on my library list.  A few nights ago while at game night.  A friend had it on his PS4 so four of us gave it a go.  It was pure chaos.  It is hard to describe this game.  It is like your standard 8-bit platformer. However it big on the action and the destruction.   The best part is the characters.  They are mostly based off 80’s and 90’s movie action heroes.  You can tell who they are.  The kicker is how they are named.  Everyone’s name has bro in it.  For example RoboCop is called Brobocop.  It is pretty fun.  The game is over the top.  When playing with four people there is some stuff happening on screen you don’t know what to do.  Just might give it a download to see how it plays with one person.

PlayStation Network

PlaystationPlus.jpgEarly this month (January 2016) the PlayStation Network was down for about a day.  To me it is not that big of a deal since it happens from time to time.  However if you ever go online and read some of the comments some people write then these things happen they loose minds.  With that said Sony all ways compensates in some way.  The other day received an email saying, “Due to the recent PlayStation®Network interruption we are giving you a 1-DAY extension to your PlayStation®Plus membership.  Please redeem the following voucher code by March 31, 2016, 11:59 PM PST”,  Below that were was a code to in the PSN Store.  Thought that was pretty nice.  So you are a PlayStation Plus member check you email for a code.  Proved you had an active account on January 4, 2016.

Hardware: Rivals

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on January 15, 2016 by getbent57

Hardware_RivalsOne of the free game for PlayStation Plus members this January (2016) is Hardware: Rivals.  This is an online car combat game.  It has a nice look to it.  So I have to give it a download to try.  When reading the game page in the store it says the file sizes is about 3GB’s.  Which is wrong.  The download about 6.6GB’s because there is a three gig patch out for it.

Only gave the game a quick look.  Played the tutorial.  Then tried out one match which was setup for new players.  Being an online game.  Got killed over and over again until the game time out and set me back to the menu screen. That is when I stopped playing.  Didn’t play any more because it didn’t have the pull on me to keep going.  Not a big online gamer.  But if you are it looks like a nice game to play.  Might give it another go with some friends.
