If I download a game from the Instant Game Collection, and it is later removed from it, can I still access it? Do I keep it till I delete it or unsubscribe?

PS Plus seems like a great deal but it would suck if I lose access to games I am only halfway through.

@Kappei Different question. Previous question was regarding subscription expiration. This question is about free games' availability by Sony. – JohnoBoy Apr 10 '13 at 8:37
@JohnoBoy the answer touches also this subject anyway, giving a detailed explanation of what happens in this case – Kappei Apr 10 '13 at 10:32
@Kappei Agreed, but the fact the answer for the first answers both doesn't make this a duplicate. the user may not have known to search for the answer for his question on that one – JohnoBoy Apr 10 '13 at 11:34

You'll still have access to the games you've downloaded, even if they're removed from the collection or you've deleted them off your system, as long as you're still a subscriber.

If your subscription ends, you won't be able to access those games, but they'll still be available again if/when you resubscribe.
