    Oh darn.. I think you might be right on this one. Only official digital, paid games downloaded in your PS4's library may be kept for good.. :(

    The game's still not free as far as I can tell. I was just gonna download it but I guess it's still too early?

    edit- Nevermind they're available on the 4th. Looking forward to finally playing Devastation.

    1) PS+ games are available on the first Tuesday of every month.
    2) You can play any game you "purchased" through the program as long as your subscription is active. If you let it lapse, you can't keep playing. If you renew all your old games are playable once again.

    What I am interested to know is whether my disc based save will work with the download.

    Do PS Plus games drop at a certain time? It's just after 8 am on the East Coast and it's still $40.

    Yes, after the weekly update which usually happens in the late afternoon/early evening eastern time. Has been known to drop earlier as well as late as 10PM.

    Lots of misinformation but as some people have said, PlayStation Plus works like this:

    Each month, you get free games. You must use a PlayStation console (PS3, PS4 or Vita) or the Sony Entertainment Online PlayStation Store website to "buy" the games (for free). Then the free games are tied to your account. You have to purchase them that month though, else you miss your chance to get them for free, as the free games change each month.

    Now, once you've purchased them, you can download them to your consoles at any time and play them. For free. HOWEVER, you absolutely need to retain your PlayStation Plus subscription in order to play your "free" games. If you don't have PlayStation Plus, your free PS+ games become "locked". Once you resubscribe, your games will unlock and you can continue playing.

    Of course, this all requires an internet connection, so let me briefly explain how that plays into it. It's not always-online DRM. Basically, once you subscribe to PlayStation Plus and sign into PSN on a console, that console will sync up with PSN and learn how long your subscription has until it expires, and that will be set on your PS+ games, so you can then go offline and there will essentially be a ticking timer. Any time you add more subscription time, you have to connect to PSN with that console to update the "timer".

    So, it's basically as non-intrusive as possible without actually giving you the free games permanently without a subscription, but you always retain all your free games, even when you don't have PS+ and they're locked/unplayable because of that.

    Sorry for bringing the thread back, but I just bought a PS4 so I could play devastation which I just bought also . However I can’t find the DLC skins of red alert goldbug and nemesis prime . Now I see they removed it from the PS4 store . Is their any way I can get those? I was hoping to get those for my boy .

    Probably not, without buying the account of someone who already has the DLC. Activision lost the Transformers game license, so all their games were pulled from future sales.

    At least with the console versions, the hardcopies of the game are still availiable.
