and that updating part of psn+ is really annoying as it will be updating every 2nd day, eating up ur usage.... The last firmware (3.30) was over 2 months ago. That's hardly "every 2nd day".

well welll there's nothing too much that sony is offering in psn+. plus cross game chat is not included in there which means we will get cross game chat very soon!!

and that updating part of psn+ is really annoying as it will b updating every 2nd day, eating up ur usage.... anyway i'm gonna update to 3.40 but not for psn+, for something else... we will see what it is when it is released.

I have no clue where you got your information, but only PSN+ will include cross game chat. Also, if you're so worried about internet usage then why do you have your PS3 online in the first place? Let alone a PC. They constantly use your bandwidth even if they are not updating. Updates are a good thing anyway.

I'm looking forward to PSN+ and once it's released I'll be testing it out. It's much cheaper than I anticipated.

PSN+ is a load of crap. I already own everything they are offering in the first two months alone.

Why can't the user decide which one PSN game they want, and which one PS1 game they want? And the DLC discounts are only on what they say, why not discounts on the entire store for PSN+ subscribers?

What a freaking joke. I was pretty excited until they announced the exact details.
