He just got the PS3. Wading through a backlog is not an issue for him.
In fact DerekinMerrick, PS+ would be a better deal for you than any of us who already love it since you are only now building a library. For $50, you are $10 short of having enough money to buy one recent PS3 game release. For that same $50, you get a year subscription to PS3 and with it all of these full games are available to you to download immediately and play at no extra charge
as much as you want until your sub runs out:
Note that every month, two of these games are removed from rotation (though if you dloaded them, you can still play/re-dload them as much as you want). In their place, two additional games are added. After twelve months, ypu will have had access to 22 more games than the 12 offered now.
For games you may want for your permanent collection, every week there are games and DLC offers that are discounted only to PS+ and you keep them forever - whether you sub or not. Sony's website says that in 2011 alone, all of the discounts offers they put out added up to over $1,200 off of the normal prices. That means you get a ton of stuff to save money on over time, so PS+ for almost all of us eventually pays for itself in discounts. After that, all the "free" stuff is truly free.
Lastly, these are the other perks you get with PS+:
