The premise is like this: you’ll be enjoying your game, and then it will start to gradually slow down, until an advertisement pops-up on your screen telling you about some great offers, and then your game will resume."

Is PlayStation Network Plus the wave of the future, or should PSN remain free but plagued with in-game advertisements? Feel free to share your opinions on this topic below!
