I mean, more options is good with the fear being that they mess with the current system (either the price, or they "hold back" better games to try to get you to up your tier). Though with the dregs they're giving us now who could tell?

I kind of have PS+ for the next few years, so if this is an attractive deal I might think of converting years of PS+ to this program instead (like I did with Xbox Live Gold > GPU)

I have PS+ through September 2026. I hope, like when Xbox gave people the option to upgrade from Gold to Game Pass Ultimate, they do a one-for-one crossover, so expiry is the same date it is now. Otherwise, F that.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

The xbox gold to GPU deal was an incredible deal (and still is), I don't know if I'd hold out hope that Sony would do the same thing and not follow (gulp) Nintendo's footsteps of just making you pay the difference if you want to upgrade.

Yep, you can still convert up to 36 months of Gold to GPU, but only if you're not currently subscribed to GPU. You have to let your GPU sub lapse, then start up your Gold sub, then do the $1 conversion deal.
If you try to redeem your Gold codes while you're subbed to GPU, it gets exchanged at a much lower ratio, not 1:1.

I wonder if EA Play will also be part of this (the full version that is available on X-Box and PC's)

Man I thought was good through Dec. 2025. Impressive. So I'm in the same boat and hope you're right. Otherwise...same.

I was looking forward to this but I can't even add it to my library. I just can't endorse putting glorified demos on PS+.

Under PS Store -> Subscriptions, there's a row of "PS Plus monthly games", and you can just scroll one by one and click "Add to Library".

The Xbox One and XSX are the ones where you have to start downloading the game from the console. I find that very irritating, twice every month
Thanks to those who responded! Iím looking around on PS5 now, and if I go to DC Supervillains I get a giant Add to Library button, but not with Mortal Shell and TWD Saints and Sinners. Itís not super important because I already have too much to play, but Iíll keep poking around with it.

It's also worth noting that the season pass or whatever for DC Supervillains is on sale for pretty cheap right now.

Thanks. The kids and I have mostly wrapped up the Lego Marvel / Avenger games, so I was happy to see DC Supervillains coming this month. $2.99 for the season pass is a good deal.

You get there from this PS+ tab on the main menu

According to the direct Sony tweet the shell covers are also going to be available in those 3 new controller colors. If so that pink one will be mine.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Sony just sent me an invitation to buy a PS5 on Wednesday. It's going to be a luxury purchase for me, but I can probably get $100 for my four year old PS4 and I don't have a 4K Blu-ray player and I'll use the PS5 some for it. If you buy directly from Sony, do they offer extended warranties? I definitely want to get an extended warranty for a $500 console. I remember how mad I got after the laser in my Playstation 2 died after 2 years....

No extended warranty, even from Sony Direct, But Amex extend warranties one year, iirc.

Anyone ever use Upsie? I can get a 3 year warranty there for around $60.

Those controller shells are way-the-fuck overpriced. I did pre-order the purple controller, that's sexy as fuck.

The system plates are cheaper than I was expecting. The other company was charging $70+. Shit Microsoft was charging $20-30 for faceplates on the 360 that were like 1/20 of the size of these plates.

Were the dark plates that high? Damn. It's like $2 worth of plastic. I did the pasti-dip thing for $6 and it was super simple(and hard to fuck up) if anyone is thinking about dropping $$$ on plates.
