Today is the last day of the first batch of PlayStation Plus content, I’m curious though… See the way the system works is you either pay for 30 days for a small fee or 365 days for about ten times the 30 days fee for the service. The question is, if you were to pay for only 30 days on the last day of the previous month would you then have access to three months worth of the service? [Even though of course, the last month is only for a day or two depending on how the weeks play out.]

The result should be for every three months you pay only the one time 30 day service. Since there is no incentive to keep the service at the moment other than to play the games being offered for free… [This depends on your PlayStation Network region though... as previously mentioned the different regions offer different incentives.] So every three months, you spend the minimum fee, then the next month you wait it out until the new content you don’t have access to is about to expire which should be nearly two months from the end of your previous service period and make the purchase for the next 30 days. This should be around three months since the start of the experiment. If it continues on in a similar fashion, the total for the whole year’s worth of content comes down to about four or five service purchases, which is half of the cost of the 365 day service.

This experiment is so that you can stay up to date with the PlayStation Plus service without missing out on anything at the minimum cost. I think there will be some flaws or holes when some of the dates don’t add up or expire past the 30 day period. This is why it is an experiment and not recommended as a way to use the service… Obviously when you are not subscribed to the service you will not be able to play any of the free games until the next period but you do get the discounts and can keep all the themes and avatars that they offer.

I’ll experiment and we can see how this goes… :)
