Our Take
I was a PlayStation Plus skeptic for a long time, but as Sony added value to the service, it became impossible not to pony up the $50 annual fee. The quantity and quality of the Instant Collection titles continue to grow. Now, it's conceivable that someone looking to buy a current-gen console for the first time could pick up a PlayStation 3 with Plus and be completely satisfied without ever purchasing a game.
