PlayStation Plus, Possibly The Best Thing Ever!

I was particularly late to the PlayStation party having bought my console only a day prior to the launch of The Last Of Us. Much like how Halo 3 was the reason I bought the 360 I picked up my PS3 just for TLOU. However once I got my console the first thing I did was pick up PSN Plus, because it's that damn good.

PlayStation Plus is probably the best thing about that console mainly because you get your money's worth and then some. Free games throughout the year for both your sonsole and the Vita all for 60 $ approximately is a dream come true for any gamer. Expecially parents who may feel the pinch buying their kids agmes each month. Though I find it extremely odd that in India, despite the fact that there are large number of PlayStation 3 owners only a fraction of those have PlayStation Plus. This is probably due to the fact that Indian parents aren't as conformatable using their credit card online, which ahs also seen the phenomenal success of the Cash on Delivery retail model. Sony's failed attempts at introducing PlayStaion Wallet Money cards and PSN Plus Subscription cards has also contributed to this. Its unbelievable really, that people defend the PS3 will all their might and yet have no idea about what is wuite possibly its best feature. The latest update brings the ever so popular Borderlands 2 (Hell yeah) and Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, both popular titles from a little over a year ago.

Microsoft recently launched their Games with Gold program which mimics the PSN Plus instant games collection by giving Gold Xbox Live members a new free game ever two week. However while the program is a step in the right direction it has a long way to go as Microsoft seems willing to shell out only 5 year old titles or fringe Xbox Live Arcade titles. Given the fact that Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2 are classics, I would apreciate something a little more recent. Microsoft you are certainly better than this.
