Once my ps+ sub ends on August, say... I want to resubscribe during October, will the free games I have (that is already downloaded) still be on my system? I know that it won't be free anymore in the store, but if I already have/downloaded it, will it still be on my console?

Thanks a bunch.

@GTR12: How so? Will it be locked or something?

Yeah, they'll be locked out until you actually buy the game or re-up your PS+ subscription. You do get to keep any discounted games you've purchased though.

Those games won't work but they will be on your HDD. They will remain in your queue, but when you DL them, they won't play or revert to demo mode. When you resubscribe PS+, the free PS+ games will work again. That's only the free PS+ games.

There is a timer on your games, you can look at your PS+ games timer by going to the game and hitting the triangle button. Even if you go offline, the games will eventually expire. You get a new timer on your games when you re subscribe to PS+.

Any games you got super duper cheap with PS+ discounts will still work without subscription of course.
