It's long overdue but welcome none the less! I still wish I could auto download all new xbla trials and demos on my 360 too, no idea why they removed that feature, unless they were worried about filling hard drives.

Love me some PS Plus I do, but still don't think it's cool to withhold functionality from non-subscribers. Isn't that Microsofts' racket?

None PS+ subscribers can add content to the download queue on their PS3.

Yes, but not automatically. I bloody loved it I did when I turned on my PS3 to see the latest updates had already arrived, but I wouldn't get that if I didn't subscribe to PS Plus and that's still withholding functionality.

I agree - holding back content from non-subscribers is one thing but holding back hardware features too?

It is indeed, not sure my 320 gigger will be able to cope with it all soon.

Guess I'll have to change my update time to after the store has updated but before I get home from work.

Just wish they'd add the ability to switch on the PS3 from any PS certified mobile. Hopefully with the PS4.

It's not totally useless at all, but you have a point about it being a mess. Sony need to up their game when it comes to interfaces, GUI's and storefronts for the PS4 (having them all integrated would be a start).
