Bit of a bump for this thread as I'm considering taking out a subscription & was interested in upcoming offers. :P For February, there's...
6th February: Sleeping Dogs
6th February: Quantum Conundrum
6th February: F1 Race Stars
13th February: WipEout 2048
20th February: Lumines Electronic Symphony

On top of all that, I’m very pleased to announce that as of 6th February we will once again be bringing you a fantastic discount on the 90 day membership for PlayStation Plus. For two whole weeks you’ll be able to get over 30% off the regular price – that’s €9.99/£7.99, reduced from €14.99/£11.99. A bargain, no?

I didn't think much of my post-hacking free trial either but PS+ seems to have become awesome while I wasn't paying attention, that's coming from somebody who was against digital distribution/prefers actually owning games and was sick of Sony.

I've had it since the last day of November and have Arkham City, Infamous 2, Vanquish, RE5, LBP2, Bioshock 2, Limbo, Mortal Kombat, Scott Pilgrim, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Double Dragon Neon and much more, now I'll have Sleeping Dogs too, I think I've already got my moneys worth from my six month subscription (£15ish).

If you have a Vita and PS3 it's amazing value, I'm increasingly tempted by the Vita now I have most of the top games ready to put on it but the 32gb memory card needed to store them is ridiculously expensive.

God of War HD free for two weeks starting today. Will be grabbing that one as I've never played any in the series.

Well worth giving a try, I'd personally recommend the second and third ones as well as there are some really well done boss battles and set pieces but the original GOW is worth a play simply for the opening Hydra battle in my opinion.

Looks like Dead or Alive 5 will be one of the freebie games next week, for whatever reason I never got this on release so I can't wait to download it for free next week :mrgreen:

Ive recently purchased a 3month to trial the service. My PS3 has buggered up a few weeks back and i lost all my save data so the cloud storage is there just in case it happens again.

The giveaways are insane (even if a lot of them will sit there on my HDD). Might get a year sub when mine ends as the content is well worth it

A years subscription is £30 on GAME's website at the moment, that's even more of a bargain that the service already is.

makes you wonder if we will have services similar to netflix/lovefilm in the future, but with video games. I used to be signed up to metaboli which was a similar thing for pc game but the content wasnt great.

I have a 3 month that ends late April but doubt I'll renew, what with the PS4 out not long after and don't want to waste money on something that will, then, be obsolete.

Plus will most likely very over to PS4 though. They mentioned that plus was a major part of their strategy going forward into the next generation.

Also the PS4 coming out doesn't mean they'll abandon their existing PS3 user base so quickly. You know you'll buy at least one game between now and when the PS4's out, you could get a plus subscription for the same price and get three or four new games every month, thats how I saw it when I renewed mine. It's better value than Xbox live anyway.

I've also just noticed that Dead or Alive 5 is free as well.
