You will not be able to re-download them, or play any games that you had previously downloaded & installed via Playstation Plus. If you try to download any of the games from your download history, it will not work. However, if you later decide to renew your subscription, these games will become available for use again. They are even re-downloadable, as ...

Yes, you can. I've done it with Final Fantasy VII and the Spyro games- they all worked perfectly.

Yes. You can buy a PlayStation Network Card at a retailer; these prepaid cards can be used in the PSN Store instead of credit cards. (Unlike the Xbox cards, the value of PSN cards is listed in your local currency, so it's easy to tell how much you're spending and how much games cost. As an example, here are $50 cards for sale.)

They changed the rules in November to restrict sharing from 5 devices down to 2. If you purchased content after November 18th, then these new rules are in effect.

You don't need to physically download the games to your device, but you do need to go into the storefront (either through an appropriate console or through the web interface) and "purchase" the items by adding them to your cart and going through the checkout process. Once you complete checkout, those items will be added to your Download List permanently and ...

No sorry, but Sony have said they are aiming to make as many compatible as possible. Heres a list of all the initially compatible games. I found this FAQ which answers a few questions but I'm not sure if this is the definate answer you were looking for. It says (about half way down): Q: Is PS Vita compatible with other PlayStation platform games like ...

It is possible for PS3/4 games to be Cross-Play but it is not the default. You will have to check whether each specific game supports PS3/4 cross play as it's up to the developer to implement.

If you click cancel when it asks you to log into PSN you will be fine. It usually takes 2 or 3 cancels but I am able to log into netflix just fine. I have heard on some of the older model systems, this will not work but there is a trick. If you clear out your BD-Data folder for some reason or another this seems to take care of it.

Where is a recommended place to buy PSN prepaid cards online. Why is said place recommended? I use http://maximuscards.com/ to buy US PSN cards, instant delivery by e-mail. Are there any considerations regarding multiplayer/region/whatever when buying PSN games in this "illegitimate" manner? All the multiplayer games works on all regions (at least all ...

I've found a lot of posts from people who are asking the same question as you: some examples are below. Outrun removed from US store - supposedly due to a licensing issue with a car in the game Joust and Championship Sprint removed from US store - supposedly due to licensing issues with the company that bought Midway (Midway titles were supposedly removed ...

No, this is currently not possible.

I've checked out a few sources, and it looks like it is possible to acquire PSN trophies while offline. They just don't sync up to your online profile until the next time you sign-on.

No, there is currently no gifting option, available via the PSN. But, there are a few other options you can use: Buy the game via Amazon, and get a online game code, which you then can give to your friend. Buy a PSN gift card, and give it to him.

Online play against other PS3, PC, or Mac users is unavailable. Single-player and split-screen co-op play are still available.

You might not like this answer, but if you didn't have a PSN account in April, you won't qualify for the freebies. If you have only just purchased your PS3, then this will be the case, and you should just keep the disc. On the other hand, if you do qualify for the freebies, then yes--the games should share the data. I base this on the example of Dead ...

You can see it under : Account Management -> Transaction history -> List of services -> Playstation Plus

Yes, they do automatically update. This feature was introduced in firmware update 3.70 which is super cool :) Source and one or two more, just to make sure.

No you don't. The games can be used at any time as long as you still are subscribed to Playstation+. (Though you might have to reconnect briefly if you renew so your Vita knows that you're still active.) Over the Thanksgiving break I played Gravity Rush, which I'd gotten free with Plus, over a period of five days, without any network connectivity Note ...

AFAIK it's the same with better graphics, picture gallery and the ability to share fishing minigames with friends. EDIT: Someone made a list of the differences: The title screen is different Some slowdown before attacks until you've had the game on for a bit. The electric room with the machine soldier in the "Factory" has permanent slowdown which actually ...

The Playstation Welcome Back promotion has unfortunately expired. It ended on July 5th, 2011. It was temporarily extended, as its previous end date was July 1st. However, the offer is definitely over now.

No, it's only possible to change your display name in Japan. Otherwise, you'll have to make a new PSN account. If you do, you can keep the same email address, by changing it before making the new account, but there's no way to keep your trophies or online stats.

This is the percentage of you and your friend's current completion for any given level of the PSN's trophy system. It means you are X% through Level Y. You should see a corresponding bar that acts as a visual indicator of this as well. It's not horribly useful as a direct comparison stat, as your friend could be 25% of the way through Level 12, while you ...

EDIT: Eurogamer has just put up this article that quotes Sony as saying "Those who already own any of these titles for their PS3 systems will be able to download this same content to their PS Vita systems for free, and vice versa," Sony said.
