    when a ps3 game is made free on PSN is it temporary?

    For instance if I bought a PS3 today would I get these games free PSN+?

    Infamous, demon souls etc?

    They will not stay free forever, but if you 'buy' them now you'll be able to play them as long as you have PS+. Basically, they are are on sale for a 100% discount, but with the restriction of needing PS+ to play.

    I got PS+ just a few days ago because of the Demon's Souls too happy And I downloaded some of the other games as well, of course. I already had PS+ before, because of the haxorz on Sony's servers, and got the Magic The Gathering game for free, but I could no longer play it when my PS+ ended. I can again now, even though it's not for free in the store any more.

    Thank you for answering my dilemma , from what I understand PSN + carries over to PS4 so I'm going to make the most out of PSNand get a PS3 too, its good value for money.

    Means I don't have to spend £80 on two consoles subscriptions so I dont need to waste money on an xbox version Dark souls 2

    Kiva this confused me

    If you buying ps3 and getting ps+ carries over to ps4 means you can purchase ps4 games under your psn user name. But, you won't be able to play ps4 games on your ps3.

     On PS4 you wont have the ability to play PS3 games like Dark souls 2, so i would save more money longterm buying a PS3, dark souls 2 and paying one subscription fee for both PS4 and PS3 not to mention the added benefit of free games.

    Im getting a PS4 too obviously but imagine it like this.

    If i have to pay for XBL AND PSN+ im paying £80 a year but if i buy a PS3, get DkS2 for it i would be paying for only PSN but since the PS4, Vita and PS3 all share the same subscription im paying less yearly.

     Yes im neglecting my xbox for the sake of a souls game.

    I see wut you're saying. I had ps+ but since I didn't have a Vita, I never needed to download any games. It would be good because you could download ps4 games b4 getting the console before your ps+ expires, (just in case you don't want it right away).
