If you get a "freebie" game via Playstation Plus and later decide that you want to own the game independently of your subscription, can you enter a code for a game (say from Amazon) while your PS Plus subscription is still active? What if your subscription lapses, can you then buy/redeem a code for a game?
- You cannot purchase a game that is already listed on your current PSN account as "Purchased" (which these free games are). You would have to wait until your subscription expires or make a separate PSN account.
- I sort of answered this in part 1, but yes, if your sub is no longer active you are free to purchase any games you had for free on PS+ (otherwise they would essentially be locking people out of buying certain games if they choose to no longer use PS+, which would just be a terrible business model).
