    Hi Guys, hoping people here can help me with some questions that I do not seem to be able to find the answer to on the Playstation website:

    1. One of the 'benefits' of having the subscription is that all your game updates are done for you. Can you select which games you automatically get the updates for? I wouldn't really want to get updates for games that i have sold on

    2. Are there any games/ expansion packs that are exempt from you needing to have the subscription to continue playing them when it runs out?

    3. In your experience, is it worth it? My PS3 is new. I will only be using it to play exclusives and watch movies.. so do the updates etc come out a lot of the time? I've had quite a few so far but that's because I'm playing games like LBP that have been out a few years now.

    Thnx

    1. AFAIK, it's just an on/off setting, and also includes uatomatic downloads of trial games and videos. See here: http://uk.playstation.com/psn/suppor...atic-Download/

    2. The free content that comes with PS Plus requires you to continue subscribing (in effect, you get a free licence until the expiry of your subscription), but content bought with a discount remains yours.

    3. I don't personally have PS Plus, but the key feature as I see it is the free content and discounts. How much do you currently buy content from the PS Store? That's going to be the best way way to judge whether it's a good service for you to get.
