How Would You Convince Someone That Plus Is A "Plus?"
As we all know by now, a PlayStation Plus subscription will be required if you want to play games online with the PS4.
Obviously, that makes Plus a requirement for most people. But how would you convince the reluctant that Plus is indeed a "plus?" What would you say to effectively state your case? What are the most appealing aspects of Plus in your mind?
I'd say it's about a lot more than just access to playing games online. So, I'd probably start by saying that while Plus hasn't been a necessity this generation, many people still love it. They love it because of all the constant discounts and free stuff. They love it because they get free access to demos and early betas. They love the cloud storage. They love that they always seem to get first dibs and preferential treatment, all for only mere dollars a month. This is all besides the fact of online play going into the next generation.
For my part, I'd take another angle for older gamers who lead busy lives- There are a great many quality games that show up on the PSN. Those who don't have a ton of hours to dedicate to the hobby can't possibly play them all when they first arrive. So, by the time some of 'em pop up for free via Plus, it's a perfect time to try them out. I would occasionally check out what's free and discounted for Plus members, and many times I'd find a title I had always meant to play but didn't have time to try.
What would you say to help promote Plus?
