Once you've downloaded them & so long as your subscription is active, they're yours and you can play them as you like. If your sub runs out, they de-activate. Certain games are available on a fixed timescale, but once they're in your "download" list you can re-download them at any time.

To (try and) clarify, I know that I can delete content no longer available through the regular PS+ Store because it's in my previous download list and I can access it again through that (clear as mud? Good)

I went all out and fitted a 500GB HDD, I've got 70 PS3 games, 1 PS2 Game, 7 PS1 Games and about a dozen "Minis" on there atm all from a couple years of PS+ :)

Oh yeah, Outland is great. I wrote a review of it that I keep meaning to upload to my website.

Still waiting for episode 2 of Walking Dead. Episode 1 was great but the piss poor customer service has really soured me on Telltale Games.

Got Battlefield premium and that service doesnt dissapoint. its basicly a season pass but it gives you weapon camos, an exclusive knife, with exculsive content drops for the next 9 months plus 2x xp events and two weeks eairly acess to all dlc!!! And on top of it all you save anywhere between $10 and $25, depends on weither or not you have back to karkand already. Well worth the money, if you have Battlefield 3 i highly recomend it.

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Not really sure if anyone here plays battlefield 3 on 360 or not but i just rented a 90 day server for my clan Xenomorphic Coalition and its open to everyone, and anyone from here is more than welcome to join us. Its a good fair server with DICE settings and the only rule is no spawn camping. Just message me on live sayin your from here so i know who you are, and ill make sure you get in!!

Only posted this here cause it cost me $60, and i count that as a major gaming purchase!:lol:

I got myself Deux Ex : Human Revolution as this month's "free" PS+ game, seems like it'll be an interesting game..when time allows.

I think you'll enjoy it. It's a great game, especially if you enjoy thinking your way through problems instead of going in guns blazing. I actually just finished my second playthough, not killing anyone and trying for the Pacifist achievement.

It can be a real time-sink, though, if you get caught up in the storyline.

Can't see it happening myself...didn't get hooked into Skyrim & that promised something similar.

It'll be a slow-burner for me I think. These days games generally are.

Kirby 64.

So what if I love Kirby? That doesn't make me less of a man!

Oh yeah? I bought was Kirby's Epic Yarn (based on all the good reviews). It's so sickly sweet even the gameplay couldn't save it for me. In fact it made me want to go out and get a 360 with all the Halo's and shoot the shit out of stuff.

Honestly, there's cute and there's cute. This was a step too far.

Well that's why there's Return to Dreamland, it dials back the sickly sweetness.

I picked up Epic Yarn a while back and enjoyed it. It was a little over-the-top of sweetness, but it still was enjoyable IMO.

After a load of trade-ins to a local store, I picked up Halo Wars for the 360 and Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes for the PS3. Rockin'!!!

I picked up Lego Harry Potter 2 for psvita, and well its fun and all but its a real down size from the 360 and ps3 versions. id suggest picking up the big boy versions instead of the vita. But other than that, its a great lego game.
