PS Plus is a game rental service. Amazon Prime Video is a movie and TV rental service. They're similar to other game, music and movie rental services (Netflix, Gamefly, Blockbuster, Onlive PlayPack, Zune Pass, etc.) in how they work.
You pay for the service and get unlimited use of the games/movies on the service. When you stop paying for the service you lose access to any of the included games/movies.
Hot Deals is supposed to be about getting actual deals. Not advertisements for rental services at full price.
If it were a deal on a discounted subscription for one of these services, that would be in the spirit of Hot Deals. But there is nothing discounted about these posts. It's no different than someone posting a list of new release movies under a "FREE with Blockbuster Subscription!"
According to the Hot Deals mods, these posts are fine which doesn't make sense. If you're paying full retail and getting what you pay for, it's not free in any way, shape or form. It seems like they would be more appropriate in the discussion forums like Gamer's Lounge, The Lounge or Product Reviews.
i also want to add that some popular hot deals that are full retail price may be hard to find items. you'll see a lot more of those threads during the holidays when people are searching for that "hard to find" item.
it's fine. if they're truly hot, they'll always be bumped. if not, it'll get buried fast. threads like those are easily ignorable...just scroll past them and move on to the next
casually cruel in the name of being honest
