Playstation Plus - Don't do it!

I'm sure many of you have taken the plunge or considered taking the plunge of getting Playstation Plus. I considered it heavily myself, when I saw they'd be giving away games each month. However, I have this annoying habit of reading fine print, so in case you weren't fully aware:

  1. Any DLC you download as a Plus member is forfeited when you terminate the membership.
  2. Any games you download as a Plus member is forfeited when you terminate the membership.
  3. There are no options to not auto-renew. To prevent being charged you must manually cancel your account.
  4. Plus has options to do "automatic updates of firmware." Played off like true scam artists, this has never been an issue for anyone. The only reason to add this bullshit feature is to continue Sony's backdoor policy of controlling the user's machine.
  5. From the PSN Plus site: "There will be select opportunities to experience advance demos, download exclusive items, and throw your cash down for early purchases, leaving lesser gamers to eat your VIP dust." Translation: If you're not paying for this extra crap you'll be excluded from further beta testing, and you're a huge pussy.
This has to be one of the single most insulting additions yet. I'm amazed over and over at just how piss poor Sony treats their users. So if you bought Plus, I'm sorry to say YOU ARE A FUCKING MORON. And if you haven't bought into this scam, kudos to you for being smart.

Playstation Plus is a scam.
