I have plus for a month or two more and the free games are basically rentals until you quit paying then the license is revoked until you start paying again, the license is then returned unless publisher has restricted use on restart. Anything you buy at a discount is yours to keep with or without plus until such time as the Sony service or publishers digital rights end.

So technically even games I put money towards aren't really "mine" "forever"?

Well, spending $60 one time a year to have the option of spending only a few dollars to keep games for (what I imagine is) a considerable amount of time seems like a good way to go. I'm just excited about having access to games like NBA Jam and other rereleases

As with any digital content you do not own it. Ebook, Vudu and the Sony Online Entertainment license say they are licensing you the right to play the game/read the book or movie and that at any time the publisher may revoke that right or it will end upon your or the services death. So no with any digital content you do not own it, you are using it until such time as you can't anymore.

Playstation Plus has been awesome to me, playing games I wouldn't have bought otherwise, I'm a gamestop bargain bin gamer, so it has been amazing to me to play semi-recent games, even if I wouldn't have bought them otherwise. Plus it gives you games for PSP, PS Vita and PS3 and soon the PS4 too...so if you are a sony gamer, it's a can't lose situation.

Xbox Marketplace has 360, xbox originals and XBLA game son it and soon to have One games.

This may be a much tougher battle and may come down to what exclusives titles each console gets

I think I'm sold. I hate the idea that I could be paying for something and have it ripped out of my control, though.

Sony expects to be able to immediately make up the loss it will incur when selling PlayStation 4 hardware, the company has said to Eurogamer.

Sony Japan executive Masayasu Ito said the loss, as Sony will sell the PlayStation 4 to customers for less than it costs to manufacture, will be recovered with typical users buying a subscription to PlayStation Plus and at least one launch title.

Eurogamer adds that Sony expects to make a $60 loss on each PlayStation 4 sold for $399, but It would not confirm the exact figure.
It also added that the losses Sony will make from selling PlayStation 4's will be less than the company incurred selling the PlayStation 3 at launch.

In August, Sony executive Andrew House said the PlayStation 4 "will not generate anything like the losses we did for the PlayStation 3."
One of the reasons Sony expects to save money is in its decision to use off-the-shelf computer parts. The PlayStation 4 features an APU developed with AMD, featuring an 8-core 64-bit processor and a custom Radeon GPU.

Playstation Plus will take off for them, it is REQUIRED FOR ONLINE GAMING, but not for Online Services. The problem is they are giving away Drive Club to PS+ users on Day One, so that may take away their one game and plus scheme for a lot of people.

It’s not exactly a paltry list, but there are certainly no surprises here. It’s also worth keeping in mind that the PS4 won’t be able to play audio CDs or mp3s out of the box, although Sony’s Music Unlimited is a pricey alternative if you can’t live without your music fix.

That sucks for those people that listen to their music while gaming...although I'm not sure Sony ever allowed that like Xbox does. It really is a bummer for those games that allow custom radio stations, and custom entrance themes, but that only applies to WWE.
