I'm sure if I ever get an XBOX One I'd get Live again, but I have no use for it right now.
People do have their reasons for not renewing, though being disappointed in the free games lineup isn't something I would cancel over. I often don't care for many indie games, but tend to really dig the music in them so I play them anyway. Hotline Miami had a great soundtrack, too bad I thought the game itself was awful.

The free games was really the only way I could justify keeping it despite the fact that I rarely used the PS4. By now I was hoping there would at least be a few big PS4 exclusive games like killzone or whatever, but we still don't even have driveclub! It burns me a little that I'm basically forfeiting the ability to play my PS4 version of COD:AW online, but for the price of the sub I can buy it again on PC. And it's not that there havent been a lot of great indie games on plus, but I already own the vast majority of them from humble bundles and stuff.
I think it might be time for me and the PS4 to part ways anyway. I bought it because I thought it would be everything the PS3 was and more, but even basic stuff like bluetooth headset support is still MIA. I kept it thinking I'll at least need it for all the exclusives, but now on either side exclusive only means "console exclusive", while PC gets everything. Even putting all the other PC stuff aside, it's so much simpler to deal with just one platform that works with everything rather than juggling two current gen and two last gen consoles.
I wonder though, for all the people who are still console only, do you feel like the PS4 has lived up to the hype? Like do you feel the PS4 was everything you wanted it to be? Or is it still a little disappointing but still feels like the better of two options?
