It would be a shame if Sony doesn't keep this kind of PS Plus service around for PS4 or if MS is stupid enough to keep XBL without adding in similar features. If Nintendo had a "pay annual fee, get free NES/SNES/etc. classics" service then the Wii U would be in every house in the world.
I completely agree with this. I have all three consoles at the moment (XBOX360, PS3, WiiU) and there are things I like about all; but for the WiiU it's the games (mostly Mario) which is great fun.. but my most anticipated game for WiiU is a reboot.. like Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Legend of Zelda: Wind Walkers updated for WiiU.
But if Nintendo offered me a year long pass where once a month I got a signature SNES/Gamecube type title or two every month at a reasonable rate (say $50 a year) I would be completely onboard. I think that's where they screwed up somewhat.
I think XBOX Live Gold, with it's required pay in misses this somewhat.. you get some good games at next to nothing, a lot of content.. but they really miss out on doing what PS+ does by giving you one or two signature, big name titles for free as long as you keep subscribing.
