I have just bought a new PS3.  Due to pick it up tomorrow.

Main purpose is to be able to download PS One games to my console.  Therefore I will be setting up an NZ PSN account.  

Do I need to pay for a Playstation Plus membership also in order to download games to my console or can I just pay to download individual games from the Sony Entertainment store.

Cheers, Mark

One other question I have. On the Sony Entertainment NZ site there is a Resident Evil bundle available containing the first 3 Resident Evil games. These are the 3 Resident Evil games that I won't to buy.

On the website though it states "This bundle contains Resident Evil™ 1, Resident Evil™ 2 and Resident Evil™ 3. Please note Resident Evil™ 2 and 3 are US NTSC versions"

Does this mean the 2nd and 3rd games will not work on an NZ PS3? If so, it seems strange that this bundle is available on the NZ website.

Thanks, Mark

To answer your first question, no you don't need psplus to download games.

However, you should definitely consider getting psplus anyway. It is such good value, you get 1-3 free games every month, and discounts on lots of other ones.
It's only about $90 per year.

For example, the other day I just downloaded, for free, DMC and borderlands 2 as part of my psplus subscription.

(12GB altogether, so quite handy being on an unlimited vdsl connection!)


Last month I had, grid 2 and I think, BF3.
Before that I have had uncharted 3, nfs, xcom and many more
All the games have at least 70% rating on meta critic often much higher.
So for the $90 per year you get 12-36 good games! and you can keep them all as long as you keep your subscription up.
