Just a nerd from the Windy City. I’m actually really bad at describing myself because I get all self-critical and self-conscious. Follow me on Twitter, @The1stMJC, to see my borderline insane rants on tv shows and other non important subjects. If I’m not tweeting I’m probably just watching Buffy or Firefly for the millionth time.

    Boo! Greedy assholes at Sony. The PlayStation 4 is the best selling game console on the market since its launch, yet Sony isn’t happy enough with the money they were making on PS+, even after making it mandatory for online play this console generation and basically forcing us gamers to pay to play online.

    The math works out to 14 cents more per free game.

    I’m fine with it. And I have a feeling PS Now will be included.

    Just want to emphasize what he states in the last sentence. You can extend your subscription at the old price prior to Sept 22. My subscription was set to expire/renew in December of this year (2016), but I just extended it for another year for $50, so it now expires in December 2017.
