NR = Not released  [This normally means that the game is new and that PS+ have received it before its public date which means no price yet. Or that its an exclusive item]


So the Total diffrence for the whole of the first year of my playstation Plus subscription is £211.09

Which really isnt bad for a £40 investment. Now granted some of the content i have recived i would not otherwise have downloaded but it has allowed me to play some great games i would otherwise would have looked past overall im happy with what i got for this first year and im looking forward to seeing what the next one brings. Im looking forward to more great content and many more chances for early entry and of course more features.

At the end of the day its for you to decide weather its worth your time getting ps+ for me it was a gamble that has payed off big time and im much happier paying for something like this than i would be for paying for an online serivice which should be free.


Rember leave comments and tell me what you think of ps+

Google +

Recently got invited to the beta of google+ google’s answer to Facebook.

I have been using it for a few days now and I like it. It’s very strange and takes a little while to get used to but the circles feature where you can group friends and family and others together is useful if you don’t want certain people to see certain posts. Much less chance of your boss seeing you call them an idiot if you were so inclined to post something like that.Assuming you don’t have your boss in your friend circle of course.

Theres also things called sparks which is sort of like a topic rss feed and Facebook’s pages/groups.  It does still need some work but im sure it will become very useful. i am already following a few topics and its giving me pretty accurate and interesting results.

Also much like Facebook’s “like” functionality Google plus has +1 which is already making its way onto many websites. apparently Google have made it so that it affects the search ranking a site gets so the more +1’s a topic receives the higher the page will be in a search result.

There’s a lot for google to do if they want to compete with Facebook but its a promising start at least. and i look forward to what they come up with next.
