The Biggest PlayStation Plus Month Yet

Hi Guys, I’m pleased to tell you that today sees the start of the biggest Plus month yet in terms of the content on offer. Check it all out below and, including the mid month treats, this is by far the highest value and newest content we have offered in one month.

New PlayStation Plus Content

In April alone the content and discounts are worth around a whopping £67, that’s almost the value of 2 years Plus membership, in just one month! And that’s not all; over half of that value is related to brand new content.

And that’s not all: because we wanted to truly make this the biggest month ever on Plus, we are bringing back the 15 month for the price of 12 offer for this month only*. You won’t miss out on this if you are an existing member because we have enabled subscription stacking, so you can buy a new subscription before your current one ends. When you purchase your new Plus subscription, you will be charged immediately but your existing subscription will continue till the end of its current period and then lapse. Your new subscription will take over and will renew in accordance with the Terms of Service and User Agreement.

Before I cover off the content list, I just wanted to let you know a couple of the extra special pieces of content this month.

First of all, you have been asking for discounts on new content; well how’s this? 100% off a fantastic, brand new game – Red Faction: Battlefields. This is the one of the biggest games we have given away in Plus so make the most of it!

Sticking with new games, we have also managed to secure a special deal with Ubisoft during April and May. Plus members are getting exclusive day one discounts on three brand new Ubisoft titles – Clash of Heroes, Outland and Beyond Good & Evil. Clash of Heroes hits the Store on the 14th April, Outland on the 28th and Beyond Good & Evil in May.

Also, as you may have seen a few weeks back, the limited release inFAMOUS 2 UGC beta will be coming exclusively to PS Plus on 12th April. See more details elsewhere on PlayStation.Blog.

Here’s the list of content that is available to Plus members from April 6th – May 4th:

PSN:

  • Red Factions: Battlegrounds – Brand New title at no extra cost.
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2 – brand new and two weeks exclusive to Plus.

PS One:

  • Prince of Persia Classic
  • Creatures 3: Raised in Space

minis:

  • Dual Invaders

*brand new minis and 2 weeks exclusive for Plus*

Exclusive Discounts:

  • Clash of Heroes – 20% day 1 discount (14th April-4th May)
  • Precipice of Darkness Episodes 1 &2 – 75%
  • Dungeon Hunter: Alliance – 25% (ends on 20th April)
  • MotorStorm Apocalypse: Supercar Elite – 20% (13 – 27 April)
  • Outland – 20% Day 1 discount (from 28th April – 4th May)
  • PlayTV Live Chat – 25% off – valid until 6th July 2011

Game Add-ons:

Beta Trial:

  • inFAMOUS 2 UGC beta: Emails, containing voucher codes to download the beta from the Store will be sent to selected PS Plus users on 12th April and again on 19th. Users have been selected based on a few criteria including what inFamous trophies they achieved in the original game.

Please remember that not all of you will be able to access the beta at this time, though we will try and open it up as wide as possible – as soon as possible. Also, the beta will be in English only at this stage.

Dynamic themes:

  • Exclusive Growing Garden Theme
  • Exclusive Abstract Art Theme

Premium Avatars:

And here is some of what you can expect to see from 4th May – June 1st:

PSN:

  • Streets of Rage 2

PS One:

  • James Pond 2: Robocod

minis:

  • Babel, the King of the Blocks
  • The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character – brand new minis and 2 weeks exclusive for Plus.

Full Game Trial:

  • TV Superstars (Move required) – Exclusively early to Plus and 20% discount

Exclusive Discounts:

  • Eat Them! – 50%
  • Beyond Good & Evil – 20%
  • PlayTV Live Chat – 25% off – valid until 6th July 2011

Dynamic themes:

  • Exclusive City Dynamic Theme
  • Exclusive Dragon Dynamic Theme

There will of course be more content and discounts in May, plus the usual mid month treats to make sure there is plenty to keep you busy.

Hopefully you will enjoy all this content; as always we have been basing the content on your requests and also trying to get you as much new content as possible. There is plenty more to come.

*This Offer is available between 6/04/2011 and 3/05/2011. You need to be aged 18 or over and resident in a participating country. Full Terms and Conditions can be found at eu.playstation.com/legal.

Did you enjoy this?

Cheers

T3quilaSlay3r 6 April, 2011 @ 10:09 am   4

wow just an awesome update. I have to buy outland and the penny arcade games. But what is the may ps one game? James Pond 2: Robocod just sounds so silly and crappy it is probaply a funny game :)

TomBombFR 6 April, 2011 @ 10:12 am   5

Great update. Thanks guys, keep up the good work! :)

Any chance we could see Joe Danger, Sky Fighter or Lara Croft and the Temple of Light in a Plus update anytime soon? That’s be cool!

Thanks again.

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:33 pm    

    hey, those titles have all been requested so we are trying to get them for you. cheers

darrenj1 6 April, 2011 @ 10:13 am   6

well im excited

nicolajNN 6 April, 2011 @ 10:14 am   7

WOOT. Epic update, looks awesome. Thanks James, I might just buy new subscription this month then.

Thechunkymunky 6 April, 2011 @ 10:15 am   8

This is a fantastic month!
PS+ really works for me as I hardly ever buy anything of the Store.
Problem now is that i’ve got a massive backlog of games to play :D
Keep up the great work PS+ team. You’ve already got my renewal when it’s time.

Stewyc12 6 April, 2011 @ 10:15 am   9

Mega month, can’t wait to get amongst the Steel Rain pack!!! :)

No doubt people will still be moaning about the price of PS+…….

MrChrisNo1 6 April, 2011 @ 10:16 am   10

I have such good childhood memories of Robocod :D but this month is seriously awesome. Good job everyone!

Thanks good update. But can you please get Lara croft gurdian of light, Castle Crashers & Dead nation on 50% off as the US did ?

Many Thanks

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:34 pm    

    they are on our list as they have been requested on here. i will see how they are coming along

MrChrisNo1 6 April, 2011 @ 10:17 am   12

I second Guardian of Light actually.

SirWillyBear 6 April, 2011 @ 10:18 am   13

Nice but like the above posts say, i would love to get my hands on Lara Croft at a discounted price like the US did.

tiago-kun 6 April, 2011 @ 10:21 am   14

Hey James,

“Precipice of Darkness Episodes 1 &2 – 80%” This is some serious discount, I’m even thinking it’s a typo :D

But I’m not missing that one!

And it’s always good those discounts on the new Ubisoft titles, I’m getting those 3 games.
And then you even throw Streets Of Rage 2 into the mix in May.

It’s probably the best update yet.

    James Gallagher 6 April, 2011 @ 10:58 am    

    It actually was a very small typo, or at least a maths mistake, but the correct discount works out at 75%, and I’ve updated the article.

Bodachi 6 April, 2011 @ 10:23 am   15

I’d love to see Street Fighter Alpha 2 on PS+

A decisive play for the title of The Blog’s Favourite James by the boy Thorpe there.

How will the boy Gallagher respond to this blatant attempt at bribery of the blog readership. :D

    James Gallagher 6 April, 2011 @ 11:04 am    

    Probably by taking the special edition of some game or other out of a box on camera.

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:37 pm    

    haha, a new contender!! watch out Gallagher ;-)

KRyPTceltrix 6 April, 2011 @ 10:23 am   17

wow, i’m stunned

I’ll definitely be renewing early

SlickShoes 6 April, 2011 @ 10:25 am   18

That red faction game sounds like Hardware: Online Arena from PS2 which was my first ever online game and was awesome!

This months update looks awesome!

Awesome guys thanks, love you all.

sephiroth180 6 April, 2011 @ 10:25 am   20

I’m impressed :)

Death_Seaker3000 6 April, 2011 @ 10:25 am   21

Awesome update…

Cannot wait to try KZ3 Map Pack :) and the other brand new stuff. just keep it coming im excited :)

LycanGav 6 April, 2011 @ 10:30 am   22

Very happy to hear about subscription stacking, it’s been a requested feature by many of our members over on Hit-Reset.co.uk so I’ll be happy to report this addition to them, top work from the team James. A minor complaint, but the PSN games we’re seeing lately are, without offence intended, recycled Megadrive games. I’m all for rose tinted glasses and nostalgia but throw us a bone here. Once every few months wouldn’t be so bad but three months in a row? You guys can’t be struggling for content that bad surely?

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:43 pm    

    Hi, thanks, we have taken that comment on board before and tried to make sure that there are other, more recent PSN games in there as well, or at least extra/day one discounts, with £67 of content and discounts in one month alone and more to come in the coming months, i’m sure there will be plenty to make Plus a no-brainer for everyone.

divine1000 6 April, 2011 @ 10:30 am   23

Good news, day one discounts are what this service needs. I think I may even take advantage of the 15 for 12 months offer too.

danielmccue 6 April, 2011 @ 10:32 am   24

If i get a platinum trophy on Infamous today will i have more chance of getting in or have the emails already been selected james?

i have the trophy for doing it on hard, i never got the platinum because of those damn elusive shards…..

its the same on assassins creed 2 all i need is the damn feathers for a platinum.

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:52 pm    

    Hi, Elliott isn’t her to ask at the min but i’m pretty sure they haven’t so getting the trophy won’t hurt your chances of selection

danielmccue 6 April, 2011 @ 10:33 am   25

And my avatar isn’t working on here for some reason :s

somethingatt 6 April, 2011 @ 10:33 am   26

Thanks dudes.

Balflearspgc 6 April, 2011 @ 10:33 am   27

Hi there.

I think there is a mistake…

Prince of Persia Classic for PSOne?
Isn’t that a PSN game?

danielmccue 6 April, 2011 @ 10:34 am   28

Also amazing update!

somethingatt 6 April, 2011 @ 10:34 am   29

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:54 pm

    I haven’t seen anything about flower, i can request it but can’t promise it will be in, sorry

Beserker35 6 April, 2011 @ 10:37 am   32

Kinda disappointed that there is NO chance I will get the inFamous Beta. VERY happy about Red Faction though :)

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:56 pm    

    sorry about the beta but we have no controll over the numbers the dev’s choose. We always try to make sure it gets opened up to everyone as soon as possible though and will do the same here. cheers

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:56 pm

djMister-T 6 April, 2011 @ 10:38 am   33

Great update, still have problems with my Motorstorm release. Still need an update to get into the multiplayer level. When is that coming??

Agree with Comment 22!

DigitalEnemy 6 April, 2011 @ 10:39 am   35

Great update James! Killzone map pack for free along with Red Faction alone makes this month very special! If you can keep up monthly with this kind of content and discounts, PS+ adopters will grow and grow.

BUT…

Adoption rates will only sky rocket when you guys finally release Cross Game Chat, we all know Its the most requested feature over the last 3 years, surely it’s got to be nearly ready for us! C’mon James, let us know if it’s around the corner ;)

Thanks

Great treats indeed, thanks !

Krisp1989 6 April, 2011 @ 10:39 am   37

Great update. :).

I would love to see some Rayman PSOne games or Medievil for free for PSPlus subscribers though. :)

TheKillerSnowman 6 April, 2011 @ 10:40 am   38

i´m not buying plus this time becouse nothing for me on the plus side.

VitalogyPJ 6 April, 2011 @ 10:40 am   39

Meh!

djMister-T 6 April, 2011 @ 10:40 am   40

Error 8002E501- Motorstorm Apocalypse

This is the error code I’m still getting!!

Errod88 6 April, 2011 @ 10:41 am   41

Awesome! thats all i can say.

Shadow-King 6 April, 2011 @ 10:42 am   42

Wow what an awesomeupdate i will be renewing my sub for the next year already! Thanks PS+ team

This is a good month for PS+, I was disappointed to see another Sonic game (I hate Sonic) but that’s more than made up for with Red Faction: Battlegrounds and the Killzone map pack.

This is fresh and desirable content and now PS+ is becoming worth while. Many thanks for this lot, keep it up :)

Mik

Del_007 6 April, 2011 @ 10:43 am   44

I’m well impressed, thank you, ya lovely generous bunch.

LagunaHeartly 6 April, 2011 @ 10:46 am   45

Awwww….. Any news when Plus will be available in Russia?

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 1:59 pm    

    This is something we are still trying to do and will update you ASAP if it is possible

@4

/Facepalm

A few of my opinions on this update:

***Infamous 2 Beta – The fact that your given users access via trophies theyve earned from the previous title is an amazing idea. I hope your given people access if they have earned the platinum trophy.

***PSOne Classic worth playing, JamesCod – is a classic game from back in the day and anyone that was born in the mid 90s will probably not even know it exists.

***More NEW content becoming free for plus members is only a good thing and hope this continues throughout the PSplus lifespan.

***BG&E HD – …… enough said.

***Sonic 2 – Without a doubt one of the best if thee best sonic games ever created. SCE & Sega: Thank You.

xchris2008x 6 April, 2011 @ 10:48 am   47

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance – 25% (ends on 20th April) :D when is it out?

xchris2008x 6 April, 2011 @ 10:52 am   48

Eat Them! – 50% as soon as my ps+ runs out we get this offer:(

Solid_Snake1987 6 April, 2011 @ 10:55 am   49

You [insert expletive here] legends! This is an awesome update! If I’m right this doesn’t include the mid-month treats either?

Will be renewing today then if I can get 15 months for 12. Plus is most definitely worth the money.

    James Thorpe 6 April, 2011 @ 2:01 pm    

    you can def get the 15 for 12 even if you are stacking your membership, so go for it!! ;-)

scottad 6 April, 2011 @ 10:55 am   50

I’m looking forward to sonic 2 is that showing my age? but anyway thanks for the great update. I hope i get an email for infamous 2 i have the plat so fingers crossed.
