PlayStation Plus Your November Content

With the winter nights starting to roll in surely there is no better way to lift the gloom than spending some time with your PS3 and some great new content for the month. I hope that you’ll agree that we have tried to include something for everyone including a blockbuster title from EA, an extremely addictive fast paced puzzle game and a wonderful platformer from our friends at Insomniac Games.

Crysis2_Screen2_03042010_PVWIMG

Firstly, as I’m sure you are aware, we got a little excited and announced back on October 26th that we were bringing Crysis 2 to Plus as of November 7th. Crysis 2 is visually stunning and has a gripping storyline so make sure you check it out! For more details make sure you check out the previous blog……….CRYSIS 2!!

Also releasing on November 7th we have Ratchet and Clank All 4 One. For the first time this action / platformer game allows players to play as Ratchet, Clank, Captain Qwark, or even Dr. Nefarious in co-op gameplay. In four-player story quests, you must work together, using each character’s unique skills as well as sharing weapons between players, in order to solve puzzles and eliminate the opposition.

Finally, releasing on the same day we have the extremely addictive Cubixx HD. This fast paced puzzle game has 50 arcade levels to work through along with 50 challenges to test your skills! If that isn’t quite for you, you can take on the world with 150 online leader boards available or join forces with your friends in the seven-player co-op mode. But if you’re feeling in a destructive mood just destroy each other in the seven-player death match!

Make sure you give this a go as I’m sure you will agree that this simple, fun, extremely addictive game is a must play for anyone who loves a challenging puzzle.

For your Plus subscription you’ll get access to all this in addition to the other great titles already available through your Instant Game Collection such as Bulletstorm and Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, so make sure you download them while you can!

In addition to all these fantastic games we will be bringing you some great discounts on full games and DLC as the month progresses so keep your eyes peeled on the weekly store blog for all the details.

Below is a list of what will be removed from the Instant Games Collection this month:

  • November 7th – Just Cause 2
  • November 7th – Borderlands

Finally, without trying to give too much away we have lined up a critically acclaimed AAA action-adventure title for your December headline game that we are extremely excited about. We hope that you will absolutely love it so make sure you keep watching the blog for our announcement. But before all that, make sure you take the time to enjoy your new November content.

See you back here next month for more content updates but watch out over the coming weeks for the eagerly anticipated details of the VITA Plus service!

Did you enjoy this?

Nice looking update! Keep it up!

*wait impatiently for PS+ Vita news*

 
Carnivius_Prime 2 November, 2012 @ 12:05 pm   2

Thank YOU! Not for Crysis 2 (I’m sure many other people will enjoy that though) but for finally making R&C All 4 One free for Plus. Ok so it’s a bit late enough that most of my US friends I wanted to play it with and finished it and moved on but thanks all the same. I held off buying it in the hope it would become a Plus freebie here too. I shall enjoy it.

 
sghennest14 2 November, 2012 @ 12:05 pm   3

Hi chris! Good work this month!
But when we receive news on the content for psvita?

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 1:15 pm    

    Hey!

    Glad you like the update and the look of the November content.

    Look out next week for some news on the PlayStation VITA plus service :)

 

Great news, but I can’t wait to November Vita lineup! Does Uncharted 3 comming to PlayStation Plus in december? Could be, that make sense ;)

 
andrewsqual 2 November, 2012 @ 12:08 pm   5

PSVita news please? Will there be a new Firmware Update for Vita to accommodate the new separate 1gb of cloud storage for Vita games right before Plus rolls out for it?

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 1:45 pm    

    leave it with me and I will try to make sure that all the information that you could ever possibly need will be included next week!

 

great update.

Keeps getting better and better.

Very happy with the plus service.

congrats. Keep it up!!!

 

Why is there no discount on games like unfinished swam and killzone hd? They’re your own games so it shouldn’t have been hard to negotiate. Just makes PS+ look like a bargain bucket rip off for old or average games.

 

I hope one of those “great discounts” is the Portal 2 In Motion dlc, big 30% discount in the US next week (and 30% off Portal 2 too).
Reluctant to buy anything on Vita with the plus service constantly being dangled in front of us, hope you guys announce that stuff asap.
R&C being free makes sense with Q Force out at the end of the month, hope it creates more interest in that game.

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 1:18 pm    

    We are always trying to negotiate great plus discounts for you guys with the publishers and we will let you know when we have secured anything

Cant wait for Vita news!!!!

 

Hm, I consider All 4 One to be the weakest R&C title, ever. But hey, at least it’s not a game that I already have. Wish I could say that it wasn’t a shooter too, but it is. :P

Oh and SCEE people, did you see the american store? They have a category that summarizes all new content of a week and lets you filter it. We want that too!

 
stevenoshea 2 November, 2012 @ 12:18 pm   11

@andrewsqual I would think that there will be a vita update for plus, as features such as the auto sync and the sloud storage would need to be added :)

need to grab just cause 2 before the 7th, and borderlands….. also looking forward for details on playstation plus on vita :)

 
Brodiesan 2 November, 2012 @ 12:19 pm   12

Hm, I consider All 4 One to be the weakest R&C title, ever. But hey, at least it’s not a game that I already have.

How can YOU consider it a weak title if YOU don’t own it?

 

What a Update!! Best month so far? And there is more to come!! Can not wait!

 
S-o-h-a-i-l 2 November, 2012 @ 12:21 pm   14

Brilliant update, absolutely brilliant. All 4 One has been highly requested ever since it became available to NA Plus members. Crysis 2 is a beaut of a game (I should know, I’ve already completed it), and while Cubixx doesn’t appeal to me, it looks like a lot of fun, thanks Chris !

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 1:46 pm    

    I”ve personally found Cubixx realyl addictive so would recommend giving it a go

 
FatMachismo 2 November, 2012 @ 12:21 pm   15

Cannot complain at a ‘lil R&C :D

Crysis 2 is a beast so that’s good.

And another addictive puzzle game. They ruin my life!!

Got the feeling it’s Uncharted for December. Nothing wrong with that in the slightest! Can’t wait to find out what us Vita owners are getting…although AC:Liberation is keeping me going!

 

@ Brodiesan
I don’t know, perhaps because I played the beta?

Oh, and I’m not dumb so I can also get an impression about the quality by watching videos and reading reviews as well!

Satisfied?

 
bournewilder 2 November, 2012 @ 12:22 pm   17

awesome stuff, keep it up. Though please please please could we have an update as to when Retro City Rampage will be released?

 

Retro City Rampage a launch IGC for Vita maybe? ;)

 
left4bread3 2 November, 2012 @ 12:30 pm   19

wonder what the title in december is U1,U2,U3? Portal 2?

 
dark_angel69 2 November, 2012 @ 12:33 pm   20

disappointing month for me but good for those who haven’t played Crysis 2 or Ratchet and clank all 4 one.

How about giving us some hints on next month?

Would have been nicer having this months content in December instead. Would be busy playing AC3 by then. For now I guess for this month i’ll just continue to play medal of honor warfighter.

 

Wow, two excellent full games this month and a nice PSN game, aswell as Vita PS+? Oh PlayStation you spoil me! Seriously though thanks guys, I’ll also be keeping my eye on Lord Ross’ twitter to see if he drops any cheeky hints towards Decembers big game (although I suspect it’s Uncharted 3 what with the anniversary and all the DLC it has(even though I own it, it would be cool to have on HDD, but maybe it’s not (stop rambling(ok))))

ANYWAY!

Thanks guys! Love the work you do! ^^

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 1:50 pm    

    Glad you are enjoying the content, unfortunately Ross has actually left the Sony family but we will try to keep you guys as up to date as we can :)

 
BOZTRADAMUS 2 November, 2012 @ 12:35 pm   22

Is RC All 4 1 only for the move controller? Or can it be played with dualshock 3? thanks!

 
chrisboers 2 November, 2012 @ 12:35 pm   23

I have had my eye on Cubixx HD for a long time, ever since I played the demo, when it first came out. Nice to see it appear on PS Plus!
I hope R&C will play well in SP, as I hardly ever play MP anyway.
Well, Crysis 2, we already knew.
All in all, a good set of games, that will get me through the month. Let’s hope the PS Vita arrives soon! “eagerly anticipated details of the VITA Plus service” is an understatement :-)
One question: What happened with the ‘Sony Presents’ games Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground, which were supposed to come to PS Plus this year? (I know, the year is not done yet..)

All in all, great update!

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 1:56 pm    

    We are still utilising the Playstation Presents option and working with our teams to uncover some great new games.

    We may have one of those titles lined up for later in the month ;)

 
Bumblebee 2 November, 2012 @ 12:37 pm   24

Ratchet & Clank All 4 One is the only game there I don’t already own, and that’s because I heard it was rubbish… but as I love R&C I’ll give it a go, for free!

HOWEVER… last night I kept getting the PS Store crash on me every time I went to find my Plus content. Which, by the way, is no longer as prominent as it should be – it should ALWAYS be at the top level. Whoever redesigned this store needs firing and FAST. It’s TERRIBLE now. – No remote play is ridiculous – has Sony forgotten about Vita already?
- The new search function is AWFUL, and slow. Let me use my keyboard, either the on-screen one (which I am very fast with), or my USB one, or the Wireless Keypad that Sony has also forgotten about.
- Splitting out the “Latest” section into games & DLC is awful. Where are the themes? Where’s PS Access? Don’t make me search for them.
- Furthermore the massive icons are ridiculous. I liked seeing “at a glance” ALL the new content, with only minimal scrolling. Now you have to wade through screens and screens of huge icons…

BRING BACK THE OLD STORE PLEASE. This one is atrocious.

 

Awesome month, All just excellent games, only one I do not have is Crysis 2, I could highly recommend cubixx and all 4 one, the are both excellen.. But as most others, I’m anticipiating the vita+ update and wondering how it will turn out later this month!. I suppose the planned v2.0 Fw will be released at the same time Vita+ goes live?

 
GUDGER666 2 November, 2012 @ 12:37 pm   26

Im sick of games getting put on that i already have!! And nearly all the games are old…

 
johnnyquicknives 2 November, 2012 @ 12:39 pm   27

Not a great month for me, I have cubixx but might give crysis a shot. Shame it isnt one of the non-co-op based ratchet games that would have been great. Fingers crossed the AAA action game in December isn’t something incredibly popular like an Uncharted game that most people already own.

Out of interest is Playstation Plus Presents still a thing? When the revamped PS+ was announced it sounded like it would be a regular way to showcase interesting indie games but so far it has only been retro/grade (which was fantastic). I’d really like to see some more from this.

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:00 pm    

    Yep PlayStation Plus presents still exists it’s just a little difficult to be able to put exact timelines on titles. We have a couple of titles lined up over the next few months so look out for an update

 

Well that’s a really great collection of games for me. Well done to everyone involved.

 

@johnnyquicknives
Machinarium was also one of those PPP titles I think. I also expected those PPP titles to be Playstation exclusives as Retro/Gread, but it seems that isn’t (always) the case.

 
dark_angel69 2 November, 2012 @ 12:42 pm   30

@GUDGER666
I agree. Always stuff we already have. But their not likely going to put something new on. Going to need to stop buying and wait to see if it comes on plus. If it never does then can buy them and by then it will be real cheap

 
chrisboers 2 November, 2012 @ 12:42 pm   31

OOH! I think I just guessed two games of the IGC lineup for Vita: Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground, which are both PS3 + vita games, with cross-platform saves :-)

 

@22
You can play it with a Dual-shock 3 controller. (You can’t play it with a move controller)

 

Yay! Rachet and Clank a game I don’t have finally!!

 

ill give ratchet and clank a go as i have never tryed, i did not enjoy crysis so ill prob leave that.

im gonna throw a curve ball out there for next months game and im thinking batman ac partly because its on the store and i dont think uc3 is and i really dont think they would give us a title as old and as well sold as uncharted 2.(but i could be wrong lol)

 
SpinalXTX 2 November, 2012 @ 12:55 pm   35

hi chris, when you listed the games in the Halloween sale on the 24 oct it said it would be until the 7 November but dead island is £19.99 on the store not the £11.99 (+ 10% ps+ discount) stated in the blog post.

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:10 pm    

    Hi SpinalXTX

    I have raised this with our operations team who will get it updated to the correct price. It may take a few hours to come through though, sorry about that!

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:30 pm    

    Hi SpinalXTX,

    Apologies, I have just checked this pricing again and I’m afraid that we only had this as a discount for one week which is why it has reverted back to it’s full price. Sorry we should have mentioned that on the blog

 

Awesome month yet again!!

Really hope December game is not a Uncharted game :(. Most people already have does games!!!

KillaT2501 2 November, 2012 @ 1:00 pm   37

Interesting stuff but I need VITA news!

 
MrAzazeal 2 November, 2012 @ 1:02 pm   38

*sigh*

another FPS game, bored of seeing these games now

Some better games would be

Uncharted 1 or 2
Batman Arkham Asylum
Lego games
The Saboteur
Transformers War for Cybertron
Heavy Rain

Just something other than FPS games please

 

I new youd push the vita service to the back end of the month, if you even get it out this month. Still pretty disappointed with the titles, would love a good RPG. If the December title is uncharted then everyone already has it

 
A_Nonny_Moose 2 November, 2012 @ 1:03 pm   40

The December game will be God of War 3. Calling it.

 

You said “watch out over the coming weeks for the eagerly anticipated details of the VITA Plus service”.

I thought you said the VITA Plus service would start in November?

Is this still going to happen?

 

Good choice for games this month BTW.

Very happy.

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:13 pm    

    Thanks, hope you enjoy them.

    VITA news will be coming next week guys and gals, promise! :)

 
chrisboers 2 November, 2012 @ 1:08 pm   43

#42: Next weeks are within the month of November. They already said it wouldn’t be right at the start of the month.

 
SlimeTyrant 2 November, 2012 @ 1:08 pm   44

Thanks for another great PS+ month! When the IGC was first announced, the one game I was most jealous of the US having over us, was Ratchet & Clank, but I also held hope that it’d come our way and sure enough, it did. :) Crysis 2 is fantastic, I’ve already gone through it a couple of times, but I’ll be happy to see the online more active through November. As for Cubixx, it’s not my sort of game but I’ll be busy enough with R&C, along with my Halloween sale purchases.

And I’m loving the content at the start of the month! Please continue where possible.

 
CoolRichy008UK 2 November, 2012 @ 1:13 pm   45

R&C all 4 one is a great game how can someone say its crap wen they dnt even own it BEST GAME EVER!!!!!

 
AshishSahoo 2 November, 2012 @ 1:22 pm   46

Hey Chris,
Nice update. I am looking forward to being a plus member after vita support is announced. But I am getting torn between buying most wanted on vita or waiting for vita plus details:)
Just some suggestions, I hope vita IGC contains atleast as many games as ps3 so vita only users can justify the price of plus. I also hope ps3 igc games can be added to download list via vita so that users like me aren’t missing out on major portions on plus.
Cheers !

 
A_Nonny_Moose 2 November, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   47

Access to the PS3 store through the Vita would be very handy, for sure. Especially if you’re going on holiday with your Vita and leaving your PS3 at home but don’t want to miss out on any of the Plus content.

 

Hey Chris!

Nice Update! Crysis is awsome game, i don´t play Crysis 2 already, so… i am realy tuned!

For other side… as everyone say… here is lots of Shooters games, what about some RPG´s???

Second question – SingStar icon…. is it realy necessary? We want option to delete it!

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:18 pm    

    We are always listening to your ideas for the content that you would like so please feel free to post here and we will see what we can do

 
Pure_Mind_Games 2 November, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   49

What ever happened to the free PSone game(s) per month?

About the new store, it looks great but it’s not easy to find things, Like why doesn’t What’s New take you to a screen with all the weeks releases?

Why have a banner that takes up 1/4 of the screen to tell you what menu you’re in? I clicked it I think I know where I am

Why zoom so far in making it so there’s only 3 lines(2 if there’s a banner)?

KillaT2501 2 November, 2012 @ 1:32 pm   50

Where should we go to make requests for PSN releases?

I’d love to see Fantavision compatible with the VITA

 

plus news next week :) this is a surprise i did not expect news till a bit later :)

im guessing launch in 2-3 weeks time so some early news is very nice thanks guys cant wait to see it as my hori grip came today and im not joking it makes the vita a joy to hold get on it !4.99 at amazon and worth every penny

 
chrisboers 2 November, 2012 @ 1:36 pm   52

#51: Those were thrown out with the minis when they introduced the IGC this summer. Now you get (at least) 3 free PSN/PS3 games a month, but no more PSone/Mini.

 
zxRATTLExz 2 November, 2012 @ 1:39 pm   53

Nice update. Crysis2 will do for me and my kids can play R&C. It’s been a while since i was able to download something for them with all the mature content we’ve had recently so they’ll be pleased and hopefully won’t pester for anything else until christmas :D. I’m also partial to puzzle games so Cubixx is a good addition also. Cheers.

 
MissDreamer 2 November, 2012 @ 1:41 pm   54

I’m glad that Ratchet and Clank All For One is finally available for those who want it even though I all ready own the game. I would like to request The Unfinished Swan for a plus game, please. Thank you.

 

Another great PS Plus update, I can’t even keep up with all these games and still have so many I’ve yet to play!

Was hoping to see Vita details in this post so looking forward to that next week.

I think the clue suggests that the Dec game might be one of the Uncharted series? Any of them would be a good addition to Plus and something everyone should experience, you may have to endure criticism from moaners claiming everyone has already played it though. ;)

 
sandystrachan 2 November, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   56

Boring.
December will be worse ……
On other news wheres the themes & avatars its been months since updated

 

Nice to see All 4 One on there. Gonna grab that.

 
zxRATTLExz 2 November, 2012 @ 1:51 pm   58

Chris, would you be able to give us a clue or two on the Dec AAA game that has been mentioned, like year of release or something like that ? I’m expecting it to be Uncharted but like someone else mentioned, most people with a PS3 will have those games already.

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:33 pm    

    I’m afraid my lips have to be sealed at the moment but I will let you all know as soon as I can

 
Skookie30 2 November, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   59

more lies then so let me guess the so called 99% tie up with vita plus are not so 99% we were promise infor of plus update including the vita stuff weeks mean end of November let me (censored) guess the BIGWIgs got cold feet and delay it that is SCEE policy is’nt it chris.

I would’nt want you to tell me the football pools tip horse racing tips or even save my live by surgery. :D

Only got thing is the cloud and 3 new games that I never got round to buy.

 
Voodoo341 2 November, 2012 @ 2:03 pm   60

Again… Why no discount on Unfinished Swan and Killzone HD for PSN+?

They’re published by Sony so negotiation isn’t needed. I’m not interested in games I’ve already played and very average platforms. I’d like discounts on content. Why have you stopped doing this?

    Chris Howe 2 November, 2012 @ 2:35 pm    

    we haven’t stopped it, we just have to negotiate discounts and it can take some time. Believe me we are doing everything we can to bring you great deals

 

41# You should probably scratch GOW 3 as it’s not even available on the spn store.

What I think will be the December game is: Batman:Arkham City. It’s a critical acclaimed game and is on the psn store.

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 2:06 pm   62

Game for December, please NO Assassins Creed!

GTA4 Complete Edition or Uncharted: Drakes Fortune is more likely.

The many requests for Catherine could ring true though??!!

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 2:07 pm   63

@ kivi95

I can’t imagine they would release Arkham city with the GOTY Edition releasing today. It will more than likely be Arkham Asylum!

 
Skookie30 2 November, 2012 @ 2:09 pm   64

* oh I beg your pardon so sorry now you telling me next week but your blog post says weeks so my comment still stands no wonder we get confuse.

But next week won’t be a confirm start to the vita plus service can you confirm it start next week but can’t reveal the full details tell launch.

Alistair. :)

 
zxRATTLExz 2 November, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   65

@Catkiller

Not sure that Catherine would come under the AAA category but i would like to see it appear on plus at some point.

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 2:11 pm   66

Isn’t Pid supposed to be released within November??

Also, i’m surprised all of the titles are releasing on the same day!

 
supersmith2500 2 November, 2012 @ 2:13 pm   67

Already got R&C: All 4 One but might get Cubixx HD a go and remove Retro/Grade. Say, anyone want to co-op once All 4 One is out on Plus?

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 2:15 pm   68

@ Chris as you’ve addressed the price issue for Dead Island has the Zombie Apocalypse DLC been altered yet?

 

All 4 1 is a fab game, get it! Any idea when the singstar icon will be deleted for all eternity from the XBM? Can you find out if they gius behind the design team are going to put tue trophy icon back to where it was? Trophies = games! Sonto move it makes no sence at all!

 
MrGregorA 2 November, 2012 @ 2:17 pm   70

i just hope that game of the month of december wont be uncharted 1 & 2. we all already have them

 
chrisboers 2 November, 2012 @ 2:20 pm   71

Skookie30: You’re rambling. They never said PS Plus Vita would launch Nov 1. Actually, they explicitly said it wouldn’t. Just like they now said they will have news next week, which doesn’t mean it will launch next week. It probably won’t.
Just expect it to launch november 30, and anything earlier will be a bonus!

 
kieranmarsh 2 November, 2012 @ 2:26 pm   72

can we get some sort of discount on singstar please, a free demo just for us paying plus members would be awesome! you know something totally free, that i would only need to go out and spend money on buying microphones/eye

oh hang on….

 
darkdudes_2 2 November, 2012 @ 2:39 pm   73

YOU ARE AMAZING!!! *-*
What can be the AAA title^^
Uncharted?, Assassins Creed? Batman(lego batman 1 or Arkham)? or God of War?^^
Seems like we must waiting >.<
Why don't you just tell us the vita service :(
Hopefully there is uncharted golden abyss, escape plan or Little Deviants :D

 

Nice update! I already finished Crysis 2 (i was hoping for Crysis 1 also included this month!), but i’m happy to have ratchet and Cubixx HD. I’m hoping that big AAA title for December isnt’ something that i already had! Here’s my hopes for December game will be:
- Bioshock’s and/or Bioshock 2
- Ico/Shadow of the colossus
- Binary Domain
- Syndicate
- Twisted Metal
- Transformers War for Cybertron and/or Fall of Cybertron
- Metal Gear Solid HD Colection (any or all of the colection)
- Castlevania: Lords of shadow
- Alpha Protocol
- Portal 2
- Devil May Cry 4 (maybe in january to boost the new DMC)

Thanks!

 
supersmith2500 2 November, 2012 @ 2:41 pm   75

So wait? All three games on the same day? Last month it was Hell Yeah! first week and then Resident Evil 5 and Bulletstorm came out the following week later. So I assume Crysis 2 is this month’s GOTM because it was revealed first. Like I said, keep up the great work with Plus.

I hope the Vita Plus doesn’t have rushed titles in it’s IGC.

 
Overlord1304 2 November, 2012 @ 2:43 pm   76

@24 I discovered yesterday that you can still use the wireless keypad to type, even in the new store’s search function.

On topic: I have a feeling the game is going to be … Mass Effect. Think about it: launching in December, first time on PS3, first time on PSN, create hype for the two sequels (and make money from the sales thereof), AAA and critically-acclaimed (nobody can deny it was well-received) and action-adventure … well I guess it is loosely action-adventure (although more sci-fi RPG)?

Yup, definitely putting my money on Mass Effect in December!

 
Hemelskonijn 2 November, 2012 @ 2:51 pm   77

My money for the december game is on Portal 2 mainly because its awesome, there has been a move DLC announced and because valve would love us all signing up to steam.

I would actually love to play portal2 finally!

 

Mass Effect would be really Awesome!

 

You know.. I lost my Crysis 2 disc before i could finish the main story line! You guys are awesome :)

 
chrisboers 2 November, 2012 @ 2:54 pm   80

@75: Yes, this is due to the different release-schemes of the IGN: One game as Game of the Month (first wednesday of the month) and two games each four weeks (which happen to be on the same day this month).
In December, it should also be on the same day (December 5th), and also in January: Jan 2 2013.
The release after that should be different: the two rotating games should switch on Jan 30th, while the GOTM should release on Feb 6th 2013.

@Chris Howe really upset about dead island I couldn’t get it last week as psn store wouldn’t let me use the money in my wallet and really not happy they forgot to mention it was a week only deal bad enough that cs go is now forgotten about but they didn’t tell people about the one week deal anyways well happy about Nov content had plus for 6 months and this is the only month I am happy about and if it is uncharted in Dec please make it number 3 or as it’s 3 games a month give 1,2 and 3 that would be ut of this world

 
Pure_Mind_Games 2 November, 2012 @ 3:01 pm   82

I’m with Overlord, to be “extremely excited” you kind of have to know that a good majority(if not all) of the plus members don’t already own the game and if it’s a “critically acclaimed AAA title” the only way to assure that is to make it a game that hasn’t been released yet.

And I doubt they’ll be forgetting the back lash after the network crash when they gave away games that had already been offered previously hence 98% of subscribers already had them so essentially got big ol’ slap in the face with a wet fish

 

Bummer…! I had hoped for at least some content to be worth my while, this month.
Besides Crysis 2 (I won’t complain about that again), another game that is just not my taste. Cubixx… well… Let me just say I think there are a lot of PSN games I think to have better quality.

And to think this is all we get in November (besides the VITA content, but I’m a little scared now it’ll suck just as much as this content), makes me a little dissapointed.

Oh and yeah: my post will probably ignored like always (so why bother you ask? I don’t know. Hope is a strange thing I guess), but if anyone is reading this: can you PLZ complain up high on behalf of all of us PS3 players concerning the Singstar logo on our XMB?!!

Just like Vizip says: is it really necessary to promote your own products that way? It’s just bothersome.

 
Vintsukka 2 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   84

Great update once again! Really looking forward to Crysis 2 and R&C (already own Cubixx though).

There’s a Plus exclusive DLC pack for Dungeon Defenders in the US store. Any chance we could get it here as well?

 
Vintsukka 2 November, 2012 @ 3:25 pm   85

Oh, and about the whole “Plus Presents” thing. Does it have to be new games? Would be cool if you’d include some older less-known little games, like Fret Nice, Rocketbirds or Scarygirl.

 

finally Ratchet and Clank! I bought the cubix mini a couple of years ago – incredibly hard but its the closest thing to Quix

would be really nice to have Ratchet and Clank Trilogy on sale or Jak and Daxter

also would be nice to have discounts on NIS American dlc (such as Atelier series, Trinity Universe etc

Hope that the vita stuff includes some psp and mini titles (would really like a discount on Hello Flowerz

 
Mando44646 2 November, 2012 @ 3:36 pm   87

so what about PS Vita? Isnt PS+ coming to Vita this month? News, please?

 
Skookie30 2 November, 2012 @ 3:42 pm   88

were did i say anything about When Plus vita will start in my posts all i was rambling was plus information not the release it self you need to read chris & fred commets over the past weeks fred said plus information on 31st october including plus vita information.

in another post chris said nearly the same thing plus vita next week that was 2 weeks ago.

i really hate it when i have to qoute ppl on here & have to defend myself.

christ sakes. :(

 
A_Nonny_Moose 2 November, 2012 @ 3:43 pm   89

Thinking about it, the thing I most hope for from Vita Plus is lots and lots of big discounts. I love having an all digital library because of the instant access, but the price tags on a lot of Vita games means that library is currently really, really small.

 
Sp4rkyM4rk1337 2 November, 2012 @ 3:43 pm   90

So many awesome games yet so little time to play them. Sometimes I regret being a completionist and a retro gamer at the same time. Personal issues aside, the service keeps going from strength to strength and I have very high expectations for December. :D

 
Skookie30 2 November, 2012 @ 3:48 pm   91

To the mods it would be better not moderation my post on every post i wrote good ones & criticism ones

because my 1st post got criticism from some-one but never saw my follow up post.

i do think it may or may not launch next week just news but i will quote ppl. :|

 

Will we ever see Dead space hit the store? I got the 2nd one, has completed the first one, but would like to buy it now so I can do a marathon closer the the release of the third :)

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 4:04 pm   93

@ Chris

So Dead Island was only discounted for a week when it clearly states within the Halloween Sale Blog 7th November??

Yes, you should have mentioned that it was only for a week, as that’s poor communication yet again! Along with the hiked prices of Dead Rising & Raccoon City will there ever be a week where information is passed on correctly because quite frankly whoever is in charge of communications & Blog posts should have a slap on the wrist.

I purchased it anyway but for the people who waited until, maybe payday have missed out! Terrible indeed!

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 4:06 pm   94

My post is awaiting moderation for stating facts about the poor communication with regards to information on sales etc!

Ridiculous!

 
Catkiller1 2 November, 2012 @ 4:08 pm   95

Also, Zombie Apocalypse DLC. Has the price been corrected yet? It was showing as £3.99 instead of the sale price advertised! Or was this only for a week & because it was never sorted we’ve missed out on that also?

EpicRandom_XD 2 November, 2012 @ 4:09 pm   96

I love all of the content we are receiving and crysis is definately a game worth playing. I decided to pick up plus when it was on sale as i thought it could be good and i wasnt wrong. It would be better however if you threw in some other varieties of games as im sure that would attract more people to give it a try. I would certainly like to see some RPG’s come up but thats just my opinion. :) keep the great content coming.

 
Jamesyp00 2 November, 2012 @ 4:13 pm   97

FINALLY! I’e been waiting for A4O To hit the UK store since the IGC was revealed, Thank you for finally bringing it here, And iv’e been eyeing up crysis 2 for a while as well so getting that is pretty awesome :)

I hope we get some more Discounts in the future too, Unfinished swan and Killzone HD were some of the recent titles that really should have used them.
Looking forward to Decembers titles too, Here’s hoping there’s no shooters and more adventure/RPG titles!

 
Player42791 2 November, 2012 @ 4:20 pm   98

@Chris

Any chance you could try and get SSX for the IGC?

 

PS+ so far is great service, there was a lot of games that I didn’t played before. Few suggestions: give some RPGs, people love it, don’t be afraid of it :) Second, racing games, it doesn’t need to be new, for example Burnout Paradise – great addictive game. Motorstorm Apocalipse was a bad idea, Pacific Rift was a lot better.

 
Voodoo341 2 November, 2012 @ 4:24 pm   100

Unfinished Swan and Killzone HD are both published by Sony so in effect Sony are negotiating a discount with Sony!

Morons!

 
pinkplaybunny 2 November, 2012 @ 4:26 pm   101

Uncharted has guns, lots of guns, so really still a shooter. Having said that I would like to get Binary Domain free as a shooter one month please!

 
Bumblebee 2 November, 2012 @ 4:33 pm   102

I’m bored of reading about people not wanting the SingStar icon… SingStar is an EXCELLENT party game, and having it a mere button press away is a great, great thing. However, it would be nice to have the option to “hide” it, or stick it in a different part of the menu.

The good thing about having it in the XMB permanently is that hopefully more people will spend money on songs, and hopefully the SingStar team will be able to provide better choices of songs… they’ve been AWFUL for the past couple of years.

Also it needs Remote Play back, and I’m a bit cheesed off that I can no longer use my “Custom Wallpapers” (read: themes) that I spent good money on. Now THAT takes the urine.

 
ryannumber3gamer 2 November, 2012 @ 4:38 pm   103

I already got R&C All 4 One (Along with every other R&C Game) and i don’t think it’s the best but i think it’s a pretty good game. I will try the other games and see how they are.

 
left4bread3 2 November, 2012 @ 4:41 pm   104

Next months AAA title is… Singstar! -___- wouldnt be suprised.

 

@Kiziek Burnout paradise was given on plus just after the outage. Whilst I agree with your point in general we don’t want to start encouraging them to recycle previous freebies.

 
Voodoo341 2 November, 2012 @ 4:44 pm   106

You just dread to think what SCEE consider a AAA title. Of course it’s more than likely Uncharted or Assassins Creed. 4 year old games that have sold millions of copies. Perfect fodder for ripping off Playstation Plus customers.

 
Pyromobster 2 November, 2012 @ 4:49 pm   107

I really hope the AAA game isnt Uncharted 3. I would love either:
Ico/Shadow of the Collosus
Bioshock 1
Dark souls

 
sithknight666 2 November, 2012 @ 4:49 pm   108

awesome! And can’t wait for vita Plus news.
Also please tell Santa Monica studios to get eu servers back up for high velocity bowling. USA have there’s still up :-( it’s a little unfair that we were given this through the psn summer sale

 
I3loodthirsty 2 November, 2012 @ 4:51 pm   109

nice update been looking forward to crysis 2 and ratchet n clank all 4 one ^_^

 

I think EU is doing awesome with it’s Plus content. :-D
Already played Crysis 2 but it’s a ok game. Skipped the R&C because it didn’t feel like the R&C games I knew and love but will try it. The other game is not for me but give it a try anyway.
I hope no Uncharted game for December. Plus should be a fan service and not a PS3 starter service.
Kind of very dispointed we don’t got the Vita Plus info on the first of this month. This handheld need all the love it can and it (again) feels Sony isn’t there.

 
andrewsqual 2 November, 2012 @ 4:59 pm   111

Thanks for the reply Chris. Should be awesome. Ridge Racer Vita pretty please ^_^

 

Nice mix of games this month, cheers Chris.

Looking forward to the Vita plus news.
Rayman would be great :)

 
Overlord1304 2 November, 2012 @ 5:13 pm   113

Oh, and requests for PS+ games … Journey, Portal 2 and SkyDrift (really enjoyed the demo but too expensive to warrant a purchase, especially with the add-ons).

Otherwise keep up the good work, loving the service :)

ChemicalBacon90 2 November, 2012 @ 5:15 pm   114

Looks good for Plus members.

Have a suspicion that December’s game of the month could be the original Mass Effect.
I’d imagine that’d go down very nicely indeed.

Also, just throwing it out there, but with the ME trilogy being released early December, is there any change of having a sale on all of the other ME2 and ME3 DLC that is not included in the ME trilogy?
Makes sense if you ask me.

Thanks.

 

Really great update. Thank you very much.

It would be great if you could give us more point & click adventure games such as The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge and other point & click adventure games.

In addition to that, I hope if you could give us some Japanese RPG games such as Tales of Graces F, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, Final Fantasy XIII, and Final Fantasy XIII-2. They would be a great addition to the Instant Games Collection.

Also, some Western RPG games would be great too, such as Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3.

Not to forget, some Anime games would be great also, such as Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, and One Piece: Pirate Warriors.

Some Indie games would be great too. Such as Braid, Shank, and Shank 2.

Thank you very much.

nakano1987 2 November, 2012 @ 5:22 pm   116

Cubixx HD seems interesting. I didn’t buy it when it was discounted, but now I will surely download it. Hopely more smaller games comes for Plus in the future especially for the expense of shooters.

If SingStar would have come with microphones, then forcing to have it might has been ok. But I have no use for the game. Why just not let people to freely download SingStar if they want to have it? Well, it’s not such a big deal, but option to decide would be great.

A suggestion: customization of PS3 menus would be great e.g. creating subfolders and moving games to there.

 
Overlord1304 2 November, 2012 @ 5:29 pm   117

Ooh and Rayman Origins, as @112 said (for PS3 and Vita).

 

Hey there, long time reader, first time writer. :) My GF is a big Tomba! fan, but only has a Vita. Is there any news on if Tomba! is going to work on Vita soon? Thanks.

 
Brodiesan 2 November, 2012 @ 5:49 pm   119

Just wanted to pop a comment here to thank Chris for all his replies. We’re all too eager to lambaste members of the blog for not commenting enough or repeating the same old trite responses (because they actually don’t know a great deal).

So, kudos to Chris who comes across as someone on top of their game. It’s appreciated, mate. As a community, we can recognise when someone is engaging with us and meeting us half way when it happens. We’re not all monsters.

:)

 
CoolRichy008UK 2 November, 2012 @ 5:53 pm   120

why add games that people have got already to ps plus i think that anyone who bought a game from the ps store then the game comes to ps plus for free should get a refund on the game

ITS NOT FAIR so now 2 of the games i bought are now free i wasted money on them :(

and who ever added the stupid singstar app to the xmb we want it removed its anoyingggggg

 
CoolRichy008UK 2 November, 2012 @ 5:55 pm   121

OttoT they int doing good with ps plus stuff because we buy the games from ps store or the shops then they pull a dirty trick on us and make the games free on ps plus and yes so what if i moan everyone else moans on here about wheres this wheres that you dont like moaning go play with your barbie doll

i hope ps plus int on PS4 untill they sorted it out

any news for US PS+ ? getting Crisis 2 ? we already got R&C All4one :p

 
Sean_Oberlander 2 November, 2012 @ 6:08 pm   123

Oh boy, 2 bad games and an Indie Title :L

 

For PS3 PS+ no more shooters but SSX would be a nice gift

For PSVita start instant game collection:

Escape Planet incl DLC
Rayman Origins
Gravity Rush
Wipeout 2048

And best would be LBPV!

 
Brodiesan 2 November, 2012 @ 6:17 pm   125

why add games that people have got already

How do they know everyone has them? The games are usually over a year old. Most people who really wanted these games by now have already played them.

No one made you buy those games. You knew that there was a chance a game purchased on the Store could go free at any time.

ITS[sic] NOT FAIR.

Actually, it’s the definition of fair. You likely played these a long time ago when people, who don’t have them, didn’t. You paid for the privilege of enjoying your purchase.

i wasted money on them

No, you didn’t. You purchased a product for a price YOU deemed appropriate. The vast majority of commodities in this world depreciate at a rapid rate. A CD player back in the 80s cost $800. You’d probably step over a CD player on the street if you saw one now. The reason? Time. Time degrades everything.

[I] should get a refund

Nope; that’s not how the basic laws of supply and demand works. A price was quoted for the product, you deemed it appropriate, you parted with your hard earned cash. Who cares who gets it for free after you?

 
ivri1609 2 November, 2012 @ 6:27 pm   126

Awsome! cant wait! these games are going to be free? i mean. also crysis 2 will be free? awsome game!

 
Subtotalatom 2 November, 2012 @ 6:30 pm   127

@125 well said sir!!

fed up of people complaining about getting old games or games they have… what do they expect to get a new releases every month? really? how stupid is that notion..

if that was the case then both the publishers and Sony would lose money…Sony are doing the right thing with there network they don’t charge you for the online so that you can use the other half of your game

They charge £39.99 (UK)for years subscription equivalent to £3.33 month and you get 3 games a month, regular discounts and other freebies yet people still have the audacity to complain.

well my proposal to you is that you take your money and find a try find service that is equivalent to the great service sony is offering but ill tell this you wont find one on any other console at this present.

 
MafiaCub 2 November, 2012 @ 6:44 pm   128

AAA Action adventure better be Unchartered 3. I have no doubt it is Unchartered, bt if they flog us Unchartered 2, which is still a great game, that’s taking the (CENSORED) at Xmas, when it’s been out for ages and on sale on the store and shops for years too.

Unchartered 3 though, I would love, so I can get back to getting my Platinum.

 

Awesome, thanks for the update. Looking forward to the Vita+ news. I just invested in one, and so far I am loving it. Would love to see the “Playstation Mobile” platform expand to the size of the App Store/Google Play. I think that’s where its full potential is.

 
kieranmarsh 2 November, 2012 @ 6:56 pm   130

Voodoo341 2 November, 2012 @ 6:58 pm   131

@ Subtalatom

Regular discounts? Where are the discounts for Unfinished Swan, Killzone HD, Okami HD, A-Men, Vikings etc? The discounts aren’t regular, they’re rare! Most of those games are published by Sony so discounts should be straight forward. Never give your money up front to Sony, you’ll only be ripped off.

@ subtotalatum
That post And the one you think so highly of, ‘well said sir’ etc. Really, do you and others think your speaking for everyone, or even the majority ?, i haven’t had much luck with IGC, and tbh, i doubt theres been a single plus game that has been good enough for Me, to actually 100%, since plus launched, but i still renew, mostly for the occasional discounts we got on games i Would of bought, all the others are, as a Lot say, recycled ‘garbage’, or games that most All game ‘buyers’ would of had, now i am not that botherted By your posts points, as there still mostly valid, value for money etc, I also enjoy the cloud storage, I am bothered however that out of all the complainers here, you and Above chose to be ‘clever’ to just one. Basically, IF you’s used that argument on someone ‘your size’, i ‘might’ pay it due attention. But you didn’t. now i wonder why ?.
Hopefully your Not a regular reader ?. as i don’t like alternative.

chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 7:22 pm   135

@ Store/Sales blog writers.

I just cannot believe that such a (another) mistake should either, happen, or go unpunished, am refering to the now elapsed sale price of Dead Island, this is really unprofessinal, and unfair, now i am Not looking for heads to roll, But really, anyone making such errors Should be ‘fined’ lose ‘some’ income,maybe this way these mistakes will not be (constantly) repeated. I mean the 50%, then change to 20% fiasco was bad enough, But could be understood, explained, .. this mistake (on top of All others) is unforgivable. I would say the usual, ie scee Should honor there post, but i’d be barking up the proverbial. Please sort it out for future blogs.

@ left4bread3
I have a feeling you will appreciate the homage paid to a certain xbox titles trophies list, the games name ?, well (Obviously) very similar to your psnid, must say i Still find myself revisiting that even now, but as i let gold lapse it’s just not as good, .. still, better than sequal (imo), though i Did like the lifelike streets and areas in no2, a m8 confirmed there Very close to the actual place New O, but b4 the disaster, such a shame.
Anyway DI is quite good, unfortunately the goty ed is pre-installed with patch 5, or 1.05, which basically means lots and .. Just too much grinding to get from lvl40 to lvl50.. ie theres easier method b4 patch 1.05.. But brill value for money, for psn anyways.

 

What about guilty gear accent core plus? The release date was 1st of November any news about this? thanks in advance.

Subtotalatom 2 November, 2012 @ 8:14 pm   145

@chrisandsheva yes a lot of games have been out for while but people are bitching to the guys who write this blog expecting brand new games or money off new psn titles as soon as they launch. At the end the day its business and as a business it is to try and make maximum profit. they are offering a service that you buy into if you ‘want’- they not commanding you to do so.

People should be happy with what they are doing with plus because if Sony turned around and said where no longer doing ps+ people would moan a hell of lot

 
left4bread3 2 November, 2012 @ 8:20 pm   146

I think PS Plus members should get 1 ticket per Year, each ticket gets 20% off a new retail game, only can use the ticket once.

 
dogwalker4000 2 November, 2012 @ 8:39 pm   147

Gotta say Subtotalatom has hit the nail on the head, to expect anything else from plus is foolish. If you’re not getting enough out of it the opt out, simple.

Plus is amazing value for money for what you get, I just think some people will never be truly satisfied with it, no matter what SCEE do.

 
SuGaR_rAy_RiDeR 2 November, 2012 @ 8:42 pm   148

Just to let anyone know that if they want a plus subscription, they are doing them for 29.99 in my local Tesco superstore. Don’t know if they are doing them in any other Tesco stores though. Just thought I would give anyone a heads up incase they were popping there and were thinking of joining/renewing.

yeah, RE5, that was reason i bought 1st ps3, about 3years back, used to think ppl who owned and bought games for it (ps3) were totally bonkers, as i was Still enjoying my ps2, .. but after ‘stumbling’ upon RE4 i Knew i HAD to upgrade to play 5, lol,.. i shudder at how much more healthier my bank balance would be if not for finding RE4, still, though i ‘mostly’ complain (lately) i don’t regret it. from there i joined the www, got 1st laptop and have become a bit of a gadget freak, pity they don’t (seem to) make RE4 type games today, or there rare to find,plus i guess it’s a aquired taste, so not that many would appreciate it anyway. Amazing really, what one game ‘can’ end up leading to.

 

can i make a request for plus.

how about street fighter 4 arcade edition?

it still has a fantastic community and its one of those timeless kind of games thats always good for a quick shot and its great for beginners and pro’s alike.
not meaning as gotm or anything it would be a nice extra one of the months as a mid month title.

thanks

Great update, :) December does not sound good, I hope its not uncharted since i own it allready.

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 9:00 pm   154

@ Sugar_rAy_RiDeR
I noticed that a Lot of games stores selling normal vers od Dead Island, from £13to£15, though online would better that, also the two dlc’s in goty ed, one hasn’t even got trophie support (ryder white), which allways puts me off spending X hours on a game/dlc, the Bloodbath arena though is quite fun, And can be challanging, hope you find a reasonable priced game, and psn maybe include the dlc’c with discount, even if only for plus members, imo it’s least they could do to try make ammends for mistaken info, Also those ppl who’s cards the new store refused to accept, that is also (surely) worthy of some exceptions, guess there Really pleased with this latest blunder.

Sean_Oberlander 2 November, 2012 @ 9:12 pm   156

@ Sugar_ray_rider

Same thing at Sainsburys, if you are planning to do this it’s worth checking to see if they’ve mixed up the pricing for 3-month and 12-month, I’ve seen it a few times and I have taken advantage of it once or twice :P

@dogwalker4000

It’s essentially a glorified rental service, you only keep the games for the duration of your subscription and you don’t get to choose what games you get to play. £40 really does seem too much for getting to play somewhere in the region of 50 random games at the most, especially when quite a few are smaller Indie titles or ports from older gens.

 
Coody-Baroody 2 November, 2012 @ 9:12 pm   157

FAR too late to get a reply now (this new guy Chris? Nowhere NEAR as good with replies as the last guy anyway) but I have to give my input about the TERRIBLE new PS Store.

Trying to find OLDER games DLC packs now is nigh on impossible. Unless you know the NAME of the ACTUAL dlc pack because now after selecting ADD ON PACKS>ALL ADDON PACKS, instead of them being under their GAMES in the A-Z, NOW they are listed A-Z of the actual dlc packs name.

Who’s idea was THAT? Unless the dlc pack you want is brand new or belongs to a big franchise its so much more difficult to browse for dlc now.

Ok rant over, Awesome Plus update again, however, the cryptic clue for next months game? Critically aclaimed AAA Action Adventure title? Uncharted DF or Among Theives?

I love Uncharted, its my favourite series but who DOESNT already own it? Hope Im wrong.

@Chris, any chance to install R&C on 40gb hdd? 37gb – 6gb for system. ps store says 15.9gb(so requires ~32gb free space) but also “this download requires a minimum of 15gb hdd space” hmmm

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 9:15 pm   159

@ Subtotalatum
As i said earlier, most of your points are valid, plus is, undoubtably ‘excellent’ value for money, no doubts at all.. it’s just i didn’t like who the clever reply was aimed at, as, though a good lad, he sometimes finds it hard to express his veiws in a adaquate way, and as i mentioned other day, i am getting a little fed up with ‘certain’ ppl taking (imo) advantage of that, it allways ‘seems’ to be aimed in his direction, am not saying he is uncapable of posting worthy and good posts, but i believe he just doesn’t realise (sometimes) how open he leaves himself, for less savioury characters to exploit, basically take the p.. or advantage. But no hard feelings towards you, and again your argument IS sound.

@156 Sean_Oberlander

Its HARDLY a rental service, what rental service do you know that lets you keep EVERYTHING thats ‘free’ for months and months? £40 a year is a STEAL now for Plus especially here in the EU.

Besides, its a Trophy Nuts (like Me) Dream, As soon as i have the Platinum & 100% I move on and wont play the games again anyway.

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 9:28 pm   161

@ Sean_Overlander .. @ Sugar_rAy_Rider
Have seen those same 12months plus for £29.99 in Gamestation, was tempted to buy But do they work, i mean has anyone confirmed the code renews plus, or would just add monies to wallet.. as i ‘heard’ of a similar prob with a euro 12 add on for fifa12, just adding money to wallet, But if someone could confirm it actually renews plus, then well worth investing in, reminds me of last xmas (kinda) as for some reason many stores were selling off £35 psn credit for, i think £20, or maybe £25, think i grabbed about 4 of em, am ‘hoping’ for similar offers this xmas, fingers crossed.

 
Sean_Oberlander 2 November, 2012 @ 9:40 pm   162

@160 Coody-Broody

You’re right, a normal rental service does cost more and lets you keep games for a lower period of time. That said, with those you can choose exactly what games to play, even including the latest releases. Additionally, while you can keep it for “months and months”, this is dependent on a couple of things, such as how long your subscription has left. It may not be a rental service in regards to traditional in the post system, but it is a rental service of the digital age. Also why can’t we keep games once PS+ is over? Seems a bit stingy

PS: While it might be good for trophy collectors, it’s not so good for videogame collectors. I’m also concerned as Sony is not doing so well financially lately, and as such if they go out of business in the future (hopefully they won’t but still) what happens to my PS+?

PPS: While not on PS3, £40 for a bunch of games is not uncommon on PC. Massive sales are a daily occurance and even boxed games are really cheap if you can be patient.

@161 Chrisandsheva

I got the Sainsburys pack and it gave me 1 yr of Plus so I’m guessing it’ll be fine. If not Sony would probably help you out unless they have really bad support (never had to use it thankfully)

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 9:41 pm   163

@ left4bread3
For some (silly, now) reason, the idea of going xbox back then never even entered my mind, but thinking about it, it Would of been the logical thing to do, guess i was Still in the sony ‘fanbase’ Not fanboy though, .. mind you, considering all the bad press those xbox models recieved, red ring etc, i believe you got a very good lifespan outa yours, again though, i suppose i believed most of what ‘fanboys’ were saying (back then) about the supposed inferior xbox, Am really looking forwards now to making a ‘logical’ choice regards next gen, as if nothing else sony Have at least opened my eyes to other possibilities, i have a 250GB {last years) xbox now, but only use it as 2nd console atm, But, like many, that might just change, depending on next few months, ball’s well and truly in sce/sony’s court on that one..

Not sure if anyone else has noticed but if u r a PS+ member go onto the store, go under ps plus, then full game trials. Assassins Creed 2 and brootherhood are free for plus users, full game not trials. I am already downloading lol

 

Looks to be the most mediocre month Ive seen since upgrading. Given that the store is still ugly, hard to navigate and broken ID rather they focused on fixing it first. Which makes comment 8′s reply highly unusual to say the least o_O
R&C has gotten increasingly more boring and less fun to play over the years, A4O just looks, meh the turret defence one looks even worse =/.

 
ADAMJAMESXX 2 November, 2012 @ 9:55 pm   166

New store makes plus games like resident evil act like trials then unlock them but when I want to download again I hope there not just trials :)don’t want to complain but I picked from the ps plus full games and now resident evil I can’t download again or borderlands,red dead I downloaded on plus. Now its not there to download or saints row I have major problems with my plus.

 
ADAMJAMESXX 2 November, 2012 @ 9:57 pm   167

There be trials doiley :-P your see once you wasted your time downloading :-P

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 10:11 pm   168

@ Doiley
as above say’s there still trials, best just cancel dwnload now, if not too far into it.. Also i downloaded a ‘free’ game other day, actually said in the store FREE, but it wasn’t, it was only for when kids visit (honest), .. rocketman axis of somethin or other, .. But still, they should not advertise free games, when all it is is trial/unlock..

 
Sean_Oberlander 2 November, 2012 @ 10:18 pm   169

@ 168 chrisandsheva

D-d-don’t ruin it ;__;
I’ll s-show you all!

 

Can I request Heavy Rain and Fallout 3 for the IGC please :)

Also, will PS+ members be getting a discount on the digital release of Mass Effect 1 when it comes out (December 7th)?

Thanx guys, can cancel downloading now. Was gona get rid of my actual disc copies lol.

Can’t not wait till ps plus vita news.

 

anyone else got problems getting on psn?

 

Hi, I remember a while back someone was taking suggestions for stuff that we’d like to see in sales. I’m not sure if you (Chris) are the guy to talk to but if so, I’d just like to request discounts for the L.A. Noire Season Pass and Saints Row 3 Season Pass. I am finished with both of those games but I’d love to get 100% of the trophies too.

I cannot get the Complete Edition of L.A. Noire because the save games are not compatible and I’d have to play the whole game again to play the DLC. And Saints Row 3 has download only DLC.

Thanks!

 
jozhster 2 November, 2012 @ 10:33 pm   174

Im just gunna come out and say it….im dreading this vita plus because since it will be apart of my ps3 plus and we get 3 games a month ( 2 retail and 1 psn) I have a feeling that one of those 3 games is getting switched to a vita game and if thats the case I will discontinue my plus membership.

dont get me wrong I have no issues with vita im just not a handheld person. I dont want it to interfere with my 3 monthly games and then I think if they add another game or 2 a month for vita im fine with that I just dont want them to increase plus price.

an alternative I see is cross compatible games so their is no issues on both sides but they seem few and far between. I hope these issues are sorted when the full details come out

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 10:37 pm   175

@Thane64
Like yourself i would love for it to be Mass Effect, but when have we ever been so lucky ?, i mean am sure psn knows just how much us ME fans want to play That on our PS3s, so just cannot see them making it a plus game, But Am still going to get it, now am i going to have a option to continue ME2 from my ME save, i mean how will it affect the pre-story choices, not a massive prob but will be interested to see if Any effort is made to overwrite, But save progress After finishing/starting ME/ME2, .. And i Really hope it Isn’t just a straight port, surely they’ll put some polish to it, fingers crossed. ps Thane was Ace in ME’s, sad ending that one..one of the (very) few ‘got something in eye (lol) moments, in my gaming XP’s

 

We’re getting a decent game each month now, plus is improving. Can’t see Vita+ being that great at the moment but hey, prove me wrong SCEE.

And the obvious question even though this is a plus blog post… CSGO? This is beyond a joke. There should be a hefty discount on that title when it finally comes (as well as free for plus), no excuse for it to have been delayed let alone this long and the “communication” on the matter is pathetic. Again, I know this is for plus, but come on.

 
chrisandsheva 2 November, 2012 @ 10:45 pm   177

Also, just reread your post,, discount.. Hope so, as for two games you asked for, since there still not on digital it’d be unlikely, but would love to revisit Heavy Rain, got it day1 and spent more time hard reseting system, than actually playing, so gave up around Mad Joes garage, But did get full refund, still, really want to finish that.

 
Ikillshy1 2 November, 2012 @ 11:05 pm   178

Greetings Playstation blog EU. This is my first time posting on the EU blog as I am US but I had a question for Chris. Is there any possibility of maybe somehow getting a BBC America App on US PSN? Sorry may not be the place for the question but BBC America is my favorite Cable Channel <3. Just thought I would toss out the idea ^^

 
JediFish_2012 2 November, 2012 @ 11:23 pm   179

please tell me your joking me? I just spent €20 on all4one there 2 days ago with some other games! For Gods sake, this is ridiculous! Can I get some compensation for this? You can check my download history if you want proof. Also, take LBP2 and inFamous 2 off the list, they have been on way too long

 
Soap_in_blackops 2 November, 2012 @ 11:26 pm   180

Hey if i update my plus before expiry date will the left over days will count?

 

The Fan Axcess PS Plus discount for wwe 13 is not active in Portugal. Please change it, as it is only a 1 week deal

 
kats_866 2 November, 2012 @ 11:36 pm   182

Crap

 
Unicronic 3 November, 2012 @ 12:02 am   183

Nice updated for Plus.

So for this AAA Action Adventure game, can you give us one more hint. For example is it: Modern day setting, future setting, past setting or imaginary world setting?

 
CiastekPL 3 November, 2012 @ 12:44 am   184

Very nice PS Plus update :) It would be nice if you give us Gran Turismo 5 in next month (for christmas :))

 
Farhad_Khan_ 3 November, 2012 @ 1:27 am   185

These games are amazing but my only worry is that I have a ton of ps3 games and they are continuously getting put on ps+. :(. I love playstation presents because hardly anyone hears if these games but they are unique and quite amazing (retro/grade ftw!!)

Nelsonslb1991 3 November, 2012 @ 1:29 am   186

i bought 1 year psn plus today. so many awesome content. best 49.99 euros i ever spend in gaming. can´t wait for crysis 2 and future content. thank you, you have 1 more happy client.

 
Dono7526 3 November, 2012 @ 1:55 am   187

when will the eu plus members get up to speed with u.s playstation plus members regarding full game trials, i.e. games like the new medal of honour etc. because frankly the free games are good, but full game trials are stale,few and dated????

 

@virusPT the fan axxess discount starts next Wednesday. As for GT5 coming to ps+ anyone know how big the download would be?

 
shadow_walkerOZ 3 November, 2012 @ 3:40 am   189

Finally a game I don’t already own. Even though I have never had any desire to play a game like Ratchett and Clank, I’m going to download it so that it seems like I’m actually getting something for my subscription. I can’t even remember the last time there was a game I don’t already own on offer. It’s probably been 6 months or more.
The AAA title next month sounds intriguing but, knowing my luck, it’ll be Batman Arkhan City, one of the Uncharted Games, God of War 3 or some other game I already have.
I love the idea of Playstation Plus but since I renewed my subscription back in February or March, I’ve gotten pretty much nothing more than a few avatars and themes, and in 3 months or so I will be up for another 12 months.

 

“Not sure if anyone else has noticed but if u r a PS+ member go onto the store, go under ps plus, then full game trials. Assassins Creed 2 and brootherhood are free for plus users, full game not trials. I am already downloading lol”

Doiley is right, at least on Assassins Creed 2, it actually says ‘complete game’ not demo or whatever. Brotherhood not sure, it doesn’t say ‘complete game’ nor anything else.

Worth a try though, so downloading both. Will report back when AC2 is in, and Brotherhood after.

 
chrisboers 3 November, 2012 @ 5:47 am   191

#190: Sorry to burst your bubble, but those are the one-hour trials… Another case of wrongly labeled games in the Store.
The new Store was supposed to be an improvement, but instead it got messier, slower, and has more labelling errors than the old Store.

 
paulitas 3 November, 2012 @ 8:09 am   192

Thanks for good games and is there possible that youtube app is coming to danmark to ps vita or ps3

 
undergroundgr 3 November, 2012 @ 8:43 am   193

great update.can’t wait for vita+ details.

 
undergroundgr 3 November, 2012 @ 8:45 am   194

@192 make an US account on ps3,download the youtube app,login,profit.

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 8:51 am   195

@ Blog/Store Any One with Common-Sense.
So while browsing store earlier i came across ps plus Discounts, And i spotted the game AC2, But it had written on it’s little picture (of game case), ‘exclusive offer, Free for ps plus members’, .. great thinks i, as i wanted to revisit this to maybe find the 8 or so feathers i need, (out of 100), and add a plat to my list.. anyway i clicked on the menu, and sure enough, No option of choice, choose to download full game Or full game TRIAL, so i (kicking myself) actually believed this was just another ‘Normal’ addition to our IGC’s, albiet without it being widely advertised, so the download option ‘full game’ (for plus) And the Fact it was in Discount section, .. NOT games trials. swayed me into both making space for Another download, then revisiting store and adding this ‘exclusive Free Full game’ to cart, then i downloaded this 7GB game.. Obviously after it installed i went to start it, lol. Was going to just check if my disc vers save was compatable, But, well We know what happened next, But scee workers. it was a 1 hour trial.. You cost me time, and network fee’s AGAIN… is this the plan ?, ie oh once it’s dwnload ‘some’ will buy it..

 
ADAMJAMESXX 3 November, 2012 @ 8:59 am   196

Lol most of the trials have full game free under them :D its just a mistake sucks you wasted all that data on them mate.

 
ADAMJAMESXX 3 November, 2012 @ 9:04 am   197

Lol I personally think we get too much free content from plus I’m still on infamous 2 :D so I’m a little behind lmao not that I’m complaining on too much :-Pjust happy some weeks are slow :D so I can catch up on my own games and the rented ps plus ones :D

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 9:08 am   198

Just to reiterate on my above post.. No other option except add to cart ‘full game’.. in Discounts section of plus offers.. usually, as with some ppl’s mistaken belief that full game in trials actually means full (free) game, you Have to choose version.. ie trial or full game, am Sick of this constant ‘testing’ of Broken store on EU Only, SCE, you really do take your most loyalist regions for granted.

I Will add, that IF i do not recieve satisfactory ‘explaination’, then i Will do something New myself.. am sure i can ‘visit’ friends and dwnload oh, bout a grand or so’s worth of content, you know just in case i want to visit later.. And i also sympathise with a guy on ‘another’ thread, who actually said, If this is going to be our lot, from now on, then, for 1st time Ever, he is researching cfw..as i am Sure Many others will be.. like the/a song says ‘you only get what you give’.

 
Skyggemunk 3 November, 2012 @ 10:01 am   199

Awwww… I just finished Crysis 2… Had my hopes up for AC Rev. now that AC III was out, but hey… :)

Besides I still got plenty to do in Infamous 2, Just Cause 2, Bulletstorm and so on, so I won’t get bored… ;)

Cubixx 3D looks nice though… R&C, I dunno, definitely gotta try it out…
Thanks for your post… :)

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 10:11 am   200

OK. i have just been checking, making sure i am not at fault here, and i Did make a mistake, But it is even worse for the store, the supposed ‘exclusive free for plus AC2′ isn’t in the plus discounts, as i posted above, like i said it’s worse, it is in collections.. ie under all games.. where they group together all the same titled games, Batman, Resistance, Uncharteds, you know the section i’m refering to.. anyway, now that i ‘purchased’ the wrongly titled Trial, it has a shoping bag icon, And Now i have the option to either download another trial, or pay £9.99 for full game, .. Unreal.. And another strange thing is that AC (1st one) is in this ‘collections’ section, Now That Also has a 1-hour trial, But No ‘free plus exclusive game’ writing is written on That games picture, and when you enter it’s menu, it gives you option of choosing either, 1-hour trial, or buy full game, £7.99 (i think) that costs…,So they got it right/working with AC, But ‘somehow’ they have made AC2 look like a IGC game, I hope some will ‘check this out’, let me/us know if it’s (doubtful) just my mistake, Or would others maybe be ‘misled’ into believing what i have.
Am going to phone Cust-Srvs now, for All the good that’ll do, NOT..

 
ADAMJAMESXX 3 November, 2012 @ 10:17 am   201

Every trial game in the collection comes up as purchased for me Chris even though I haven’t downloaded them mass effect 2,3 ac 1,2 brotherhood all come up as purchased in collections its weird but I have no clue why its like that.

 

@chrisandsheva

i also seen this but the description box at the side after selecting the game said get access to this 1hr free trial as a plus member ect so could see it was a trial before downloading, i looked last night after whoever it was you were talking to about it on here pointed it out.

 
DigitalSensation 3 November, 2012 @ 10:22 am   203

Nice update :) I look forward to R&C and Cubixx :)

On a side note, does anyone know how to get to the Game Soundtrack section on the new store layout?

 
jarv1s01 3 November, 2012 @ 10:22 am   204

Guys – anyone else having problems logging into the PSN store at the moment? I’m getting error code 8002400C

 
D-FrOzenONE 3 November, 2012 @ 10:25 am   205

crysis 2 and the puzzel game look interesting.

i would be dissapointed if the december game was somthing very old such as mass effect 1 or bio-shock or something along those lines. personally i think it may be skyrim, as some new dlc will be on its way for that soon, if it is i would be very happy with that

my one critique is we need a greater variety of games it wouldnt hurt to throw in a racing game, or SSX everyone once in a while. to be honest motor-storm just doesnt cut it.

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 10:30 am   206

@ hayzink
are you sure, as we were talking about ‘possible’ free games care of the trial section, nothing i read mentioned the ‘collections’ were i have apparently come unstuck, if poss can you pop on there and confirm ?.. the general all games collections, seperate from plus section..or if someone did allready mention this last night can you let me know where about.. thnx.

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 10:37 am   207

@ hayzink
i should of said ‘HE’ was talking about ‘possible’ free games via trials.. but me and few others explained it didn’t work like that..

 
Menorkamer 3 November, 2012 @ 10:53 am   208

Please add 3d Dot Game Heroes!!! Would also love to see Max Payne 3, Gran Turismo, Batman Arkham City, Skyrim. Any chance for those sometime?

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 10:57 am   209

@ D-FrOzenONE
I wouldn’t mind That.. But tbh i am a little worried, as ppl are (rightly) asking for rpg’s, But they haven’t really got many.. i just Hope, for Everyones sanity that Chris and team Don’t consider TwoWorlds2 as a AAA title.. as it really is The worst ‘excuse’ of a game, well gameplay that i have ever seen… i mentioned it few days ago, but i got it when it hit psn, as it did ‘seem’ to tick all right boxes, but it is hard work, even though i basically burnt 20 pounds.. i just Had to laugh at my character being stuck trying to walk up stairs, even a, i guess it’s a pebble/rock, Stops the guy dead in his tracks…,theres to many details like them to explain.. but please Chris,IF you read these.. Don’t consider that as a suitable rpg.

 

@chrisandsheva
when going in from the collections page like you say it does look free but when i go in i get the blurb about full game trial and the option to choose a version i just did it there.

 
ill_amazer 3 November, 2012 @ 11:29 am   211

Excellent titles!

All4One was very requested and we’re all glad you guys listened.
Crysis 2 is awesome and Cubixx HD looks great.

Very diverse genres, you guys are doing a terrific job!

 
PAUL_UK-77 3 November, 2012 @ 11:38 am   212

have none of these games .

nice update sony

 
chrisandsheva 3 November, 2012 @ 11:59 am   213

@ hayzink
strange, as it didn’t give me any option other than add to cart… and now i own the trial i can’t go and see what you mean by little blurb… as i said, on 1st AC it actually gives you options, buy or trial.. But 2 just had the one.. and with what i advised last night about trials being, well just trials, i was looking for the catch.. well it fooled me, and if anyone else actually wanted that game it’d prob take them unawares.. will call to m8s l8r and take closer look… thnx for looking it up though m8.

 
Darthohara 3 November, 2012 @ 12:46 pm   214

You didn’t read the whole blog entry did you. November 7th next week.

im going to try that, cos i might like it- to quote sony!

 
krafty1989 3 November, 2012 @ 2:46 pm   217

@ActionAdventure game December

Not Uncharted 3/Killzone 3 as game download is meant to be 40GB+ (Also uncharted 3 sells really well)

Not Sly/Rachet as these have been offered free in the past. (Sly 1 and Quest for booty in welcome back programme)

Could be Uncharted 1/2 as they are selling ok, and there is no new re-release in EU yet (Proper Trilogy edition/Double edition ala USA Infamous/God of War/Uncharted Double pack) (Also they are on PSN)

Could be God of war 3 to get people interested before Ascension Launch (maybe too far away, but it probably doesn’t sell much in EU so nothing lost by giving it free)

Could be Devil may Cry 4 although it doesn’t have trophy support (Even though the 360 version has achievements) so unlikely to get it unless its patched (Capcom probably wouldn’t do it though)

Maybe Batman Arkham City, in preparation for a 2013 Batman release?

 

Not a bad update :)

Hurry up and give us the Vita news please – been eagerly awaiting it for some time now! ;)

 
Darthohara 3 November, 2012 @ 4:11 pm   219

@supersmith2500. Cheers. I missed that bit lol

 

Nice november update. But Crysis 2 is kinda generic (I’ve played through it) but i guess it will be a great opportunity to trophy hunt some more…

 
CoolRichy008UK 4 November, 2012 @ 1:17 am   221

i take back what i said cuz its my own falt i bought the games and didnt wait for them to be free for ps plus (slaps self) oh and if you get a ps store error code try uninstalling reinstalling ps store (you wont loze your downloads) when the ps store froze thats what i did and its ok now

 
DarkFourze 4 November, 2012 @ 3:03 am   222

Have played Crysis 2, will download it seems to be a fun game.

Any chance we will be getting KOFXIII like the US?

 
NMDIRTYDOG 4 November, 2012 @ 4:09 am   223

I thought ratchet and clank all 4 one was already a free game like 5 months ago? Is it a different versión that im not aware of? Anyway crysis 2 is a good game. Do we get the same content if we Live in México?

 
Private-Lu 4 November, 2012 @ 4:32 am   224

Normally I’d read all of that, but recently been playing Magicka on PC (with my PS3 controller, haha) I think I am slowly moving to love PC gaming again.

Maybe if someone fixed Dead Island crashing my PS3 all the time, and never allowing me to play with my friends, I’d be much more in to the PSN Updates.

 
ZombieCracka 4 November, 2012 @ 6:35 am   225

How does a US plus member sign up for the EU plus? Our games blow most of the time.

 

Awesome! That’s really going to be fun – Crysis 2 & R&C. I was thinking of buying these titles a few weeks ago! Looking forward to Cubixx HD as well – interested in puzzles and these provide refreshing change in between the usual games!

Keeping fingers crossed for the DEC AAA title!

My PS+ one and a half months have been great so far!

However, the issues with the store are annoying! I have still not figured out, how & where are the free games grouped! It’s not only the IGC ofcourse! Some are under discounts /some free shown in the trial section (are the AC 1 & 2 really free? and what about the Darksiders? ) It is imperative to sort out the store issues and neatly organize it!
Cheers

KillerPedrol 4 November, 2012 @ 10:10 am   228

Hi Chris!

I’m really happy for this update since I’m still choosing to buy Plus or not.

Question: Why aren’t there any RPG’s or JRPG’s coming?

People like me are really anxious for something like this to happen!

pewpie99 4 November, 2012 @ 11:58 am   229

Instead of lawyers telling gamers what things they get, and letting the gamers deal with it. Do you think you could run plus by letting gamers tell the lawyers what things they get – and letting the lawyers deal with it?

Just an idea – thanks.

Thalia_01 4 November, 2012 @ 1:25 pm   230

Dear chris,

Please stop saying you’re listening to our feedback, when you clearly aren’t.

Listening is not like a buffet where you can pick and choose what gets your attention and what gets ignored.

Either listen to all of us, or stop pretending you care. I’m not saying you have to give us everything we want (which is the spin you’ll probably try to put on it), but there are questions that have been asked a milion times here and keep getting blatantly ignored, yet you can still find the time to answer praise or other things that happen to suit you.

It doesn’t work like that. Trust me.

my money is on gow 3 being the aaa action adventure game headlined for dec with the gow assention beta being released at the end of nowember it makes perfect scense

 

Agreed with the poster above me. Plus mostly only answers given to the 1st/2nd page as it influences the fast reading public the most, they just leave any topic/story after that to die and hop on the next new thing.

Give some more frequent answers to more people asking questions and support a thread for a longer time!

 

It would be great PLUS included Movies and Music Free Service

they need to bring some good racing games like midnight club or nfs and also they need to bring some good fighting games such as acarna hearts or blazeblue as a psnplus download, am not amused by most of the games were recieving, its a joke only good game i got is borderlands, infamous 2 and MA

 
kieranmarsh 4 November, 2012 @ 5:35 pm   236

As a sign of my frustration with the store and blog staff, And anger at the way we are treated and scammed I will be boycotting the store and convincing others to do the same until you show us the respect we deserve as your paying customers.

Examples being,
– Blog staff ignoring important or useful questions.
– Replying to the same questions, sometimes on the same page.
– Inability to provide us with information (TWD, CS:GO)
– Promoting content, then on release saying its delayed.
– Promoting deals that don’t work and don’t fix (Dead Island).
– Releasing Content, then announce a discount a week later (WWE13).
– 95% of the PS2 games are garbage, release good games.
– Charging ridiculous amounts for digital games.
– Charging more than the US Store, Content should be equally priced.
– Forced to have a Singstar icon on the XMB.
– Feel free to add more

“A critically acclaimed AAA action-adventure title for your December headline” .. Max Payne 3 maybe ?? :D

 

Great updates, would really like 2 see a fightig game for Plus

 
Catkiller1 5 November, 2012 @ 11:08 am   242

@ CoolRichy

What are you calling me out for?? I haven’t said anything?? I stated what I wanted to say & we agreed to forget it but you bring up my name again!

All I said is when will you ever learn?? So my question still stands!

Don’t sit there & use emotional threats against me. Try & cast your mind back to this time last year when you sent lots of abuse towards members of this blog & random PS3 users that you’ve met through HOME & other titles. I told you I would stay out of it but you’ve gone & mentioned my name yet again when I haven’t done anything. I think you may want to check your posts before calling someone out. Yes you have learning difficulties & i’ve defended you in the past but you can’t use that as an excuse every single time. If that’s the case then don’t type anything then! t the end of the day you’re the one that types your messages & clicks ‘Submit’ thinking that your comments are fine. Think about the hurt you can cause someone emtionally with your words.

 
Bangla_Bhai 5 November, 2012 @ 3:02 pm   243

Great games for November. But I’m really hoping for Dark Souls to be the next free AAA game! With the new DLC out, I can only imagine it to be a profitable solution. (The dlc should be discounted as well ;) )

 
PureSou_-L 5 November, 2012 @ 11:10 pm   244

I’am just wait for battlefield 3 on Instant Games :D
But, the all of things are amazing, thank you ‘Sony Enterteinement’

kalim1993 6 November, 2012 @ 1:48 pm   247

I would love to see bioshock and/or bioshock 2 on psn+ would make the online bounce back up and get all the new comers for the release of infinite(:

 
nezhet10 6 November, 2012 @ 4:05 pm   248

Ps Vita games? :(

 

Ps vita games? It is next week now.

 
chrisboers 6 November, 2012 @ 7:41 pm   250

@Above. It’s ‘next week’ the entire week. Don’t expect an announcement until friday.

SuperVisionaryHD 7 November, 2012 @ 1:09 am   251

Nice job Chris but how do I get a code I liked facebook my e-mail is ibee706@gmail.com and yet there’s no code.

    Chris Howe 8 November, 2012 @ 4:43 pm    

    The code should just be sent through to you after you have liked the page and entered you email addy, make sure you check your Junk folder and if that fails, give it another go and it should be fine. We have not heard of any other issues like this.

bloodyred4 7 November, 2012 @ 4:49 am   252

Does anybody knows what I have had Ratchet&Clank All4One since one month ago? I mean I can’t be the only one, and you guys are telling that you’re releasing it on november, do am I missing some game?

 
Paldiran 7 November, 2012 @ 9:28 am   253

How much do we have to wait for this update? it is 7th of november but there is no update on psn whatsoever..

 
chrisboers 7 November, 2012 @ 9:31 am   254

@Paldiran: The store always updated around 4PM UTC. So, check again in about 6 hours. Also, you might find the games early, by doing a search on the name itself, as the games update before the actual Store visuals are updated.

 
Paldiran 7 November, 2012 @ 9:38 am   255

Thank you for the info chris very much appreciated =)

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 1:29 pm   256

its now 11:30pm AEST on the 7th (12:30pm AEDST on the 8th for New South Wales and Victoria) and i aint seen this november content yet!!!

searching directly for the game (crysis 2 or R&C AFO) makes no difference, i’ll admit i used to use this trick on the old PS Store to get the games a few hours earlier before they updated the visuals.

BUT HEY>>>> WHATS THE GO???? why not say it will be available from the 8th!! and be safe, and not give anyone else false expectations……especially so if the update doesn’t go through till 4pm UTC…..do you think the whole EU world revolves around great britian?

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   257

still waiting …. its now 00:01am on the 8th of November AEST.

….. …… …… ***>(^_^)<***

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 2:10 pm   258

Ok…. so going the old way searching for the games, i can say as of now

- Cubix HD
- Rachet & Clank All for One

are avaialble….

Crysis 2 still up there for $39.95 AUD

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 2:31 pm   259

ok…so going on 00:30 now, on the 8th AEST…..
still no crysis 2

imean honestly, you guys were braggin about crysis 2 over a week ago, why does it take until till mid afternoon your time to get it up and avaialble for download..?

Its not like you haven’t had over 1 weeks preperation for this?

getting sleepy/tired….just want to add it to my download list so i can go to bed and leave it downloading all night so its ready to play when i wake up!!

in the infamous words of Jeremy Clarkson….”How hard can it be?”

 
undergroundgr 7 November, 2012 @ 3:00 pm   260

@259 are you new to plus?im asking you because almost every plus update comes along wednesday afternoons in europe around the same time as the weekly update.i havent checked yet but im sure it will be up soon in the next hour or something.

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 3:03 pm   261

its still not the point.

if they advertising it will be available on the 7th, then they need to adjust there update time of the day to encompass all areas of the world that runs off the EU servers to keep their promise / to make sure that if they say the 7th, it is the 7th, even if its 10 or 11 pm here in australia.

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 3:09 pm   262

and more to the point…. why has ratchet and clank & cubix prices been updated in the store and not crysis 2 as yet?

nw 01:10am 8th of November in Australia

 
Freddedron 7 November, 2012 @ 3:17 pm   263

And we didn’t get this today because~~?

 
Freddedron 7 November, 2012 @ 3:18 pm   264

Or is it just not included in the PSstore update?

 
Catkiller1 7 November, 2012 @ 3:20 pm   265

@ TTErallye

I’m afraid the store updates have always been between 15:00 & 18:00 within the UK unless they have encountered problems. Annoying for some of you & I understand but you’ll just have to wait it out.

 
Catkiller1 7 November, 2012 @ 3:23 pm   266

@ Freddedron

The PLUS information used to have a separate post shortly after the normal store update. As-of-late they haven’t bothered due to all of the information detailed within the PLUS post, that now happens a week/few days earlier.

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 3:24 pm   267

@ catkiller

this is just untrue, cubix and ratchet and clanks prices were updated sometime between 1400-1410 your time.

see the timestamp on my earlier posts 257 & 258

 
Catkiller1 7 November, 2012 @ 3:31 pm   268

@ TTErallye

The content may be slowly filtering through, I would be patient & wait another hour or two.

Also Fred has just updated the main store post with PLUS content.

 
TTErallye 7 November, 2012 @ 3:38 pm   269

well thats stating the obvious inevitable…. but if its “always” 1500 & 1800 then whats your explanation of the other 2 being updated early?

 
Catkiller1 7 November, 2012 @ 4:27 pm   270

@ TTErallye

Listen, there’s no need to get moody when i’m offering an explanation. If it’s stating the obvious then be patient & wait then!

The other 2 titles that you say filtered through earlier than the usual time…i’m not sure but that was just a one-off! Like i’ve said before the store updates between 15:00 & 18:00 & it’s been like that for a long time now!

Forget I even bothered….sheesh some people!

 
Picksummat 7 November, 2012 @ 6:00 pm   271

Are you the same Chris Howe who used to work for Capita? Just wondering… :)

 
Subtotalatom 7 November, 2012 @ 7:01 pm   272

Games are on the uk store, you have to type them in and search at minute though :)

crysis 2 7.4gb
ratchet and clank 15gb :O
cubix hd 164mb

 
killer_ghandi 7 November, 2012 @ 7:22 pm   273

Why can’t i download crysis2, i’m a plus member and the game doesn’t appear free for me. It has the plus icon, but charges me 29,90 to go on with the download. How about ratchet? I’ve had to search for it on the “find” option, because it wasn’t updated on the plus folder. As for cubix, i only find the experimental file, not the one that finalizes the “buy”. Is there any problem with the store from Portugal?

 
Stone_Henge_ 7 November, 2012 @ 8:54 pm   274

So … Any news on the Vita Playstation Plus service??

    Chris Howe 8 November, 2012 @ 4:39 pm    

    We will be providing a full update on VITA next week, we are just finalising everything at the moment

 

I am also not able to download Crysis 2. I finally see it in the store but if I want to download it requests me to pay for it? What is wrong???

 
Lazlo_01 7 November, 2012 @ 9:32 pm   276

I have downloaded cubixx hd only to find out it’s a trial. To unlock the full game it says that it’s going to cost me £6.49, but it’s supposed to be free on playstation plus. It is even on the instant game collection with the £6.49 unlock charge???

 
MasLegio 7 November, 2012 @ 10:43 pm   277

Cubixx HD is not free!!

whats up with that??!!

    Chris Howe 8 November, 2012 @ 4:38 pm    

    Cubixx HD is free, do not fear, when you get onto the product page scroll to the right to where it Game Page enter. Once you are in the game page download the full game from there

 
TTErallye 8 November, 2012 @ 12:06 am   278

like i said several hours ago…. its not like PSN staff didn’t have enough time to prepare for this update.

its seems to me to be that everything has been left to the last mintue, rushed, with no offline testing that has occourred before making the so called update go live..

if i ran my business this way, i’d be out of business.

It doesnt show Rachet and Clank all for one in the ps+ section?

    Chris Howe 8 November, 2012 @ 4:39 pm    

    This is a technical error, we are working on it at the moment, if you search for it, you will find it and it is free to download for Plus subscribers

 
supersmith2500 8 November, 2012 @ 4:47 pm   280

Lemme list you instructions on how to download them properly:

R&C: All 4 One:
Use manual search.

Cubixx HD:
If you can’t get the key, download the trial then go to the trial you downloaded and hit Triangle, select Purchase and there you go.

Crysis 2 works normal for me so nothing from here.

 
supersmith2500 8 November, 2012 @ 4:55 pm   281

Also, AC2 and Brotherhood appear as free which they shouldn’t. Please look into it.

 
taris1989 8 November, 2012 @ 5:45 pm   282

Still no Crysis 2 and Rachet and Clank in Hungarian PS store :/ hopefully this will get sorted soon

 
indra001 8 November, 2012 @ 5:48 pm   283

Good choices with the 3 games. Could you have a trilogy as the next free game?

 
kdunhill 8 November, 2012 @ 7:54 pm   284

another good month of games for ps3 when is the vita being added

 
ShinYagami13 9 November, 2012 @ 2:46 pm   285

Hi Chris, i got a question for you since you are as your title says the Plus content manager…
I was really excited with the latest update as for the first time i didn’t already own any of the games offered, thing is though i own a 40gb ps3 and got really disappointed to find theres no way i can download and install R & C All 4 One as the space needed for the operation is 32gb and a 40gb ps3 (37 actually) has only 30gb of free space available after what is needed for it to run is taken out…
So my question is 40gb ps3 owners/plus subscribers are so few they are not even considered when picking a title for the next months update? Sorry for the long message but it feels like you guys are giving me the right lets say to download the game for free and at the same time you are taking it away from me with its prohibitely large size! I ll be waiting for a response on that, thanks in advance

 
KSIOlajideBT7-7 9 November, 2012 @ 10:40 pm   286

Chris, Is there a Chance that the in the December Update will be PayDay The Heist (just like in the Us Store) and if theres a chance any Uncharted Game? Please reply if u saw this message.

 
AbsolutelyBlazed 12 November, 2012 @ 8:21 am   287

nice update keep it up guys december should be good :)

 

Still no update on the Vita, kinda disappointed!

When will you have Vita news?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?

dan__1809 12 November, 2012 @ 10:38 pm   289

Hope theres some vita plus news 2mo

Kasper__KSA 20 November, 2012 @ 2:00 pm   290

Crysis 2 would be so awsome guys

 
illuminatisin 21 November, 2012 @ 7:20 pm   291

Hey please can we have 3 good games in december for a bonus month maybe even more

 
dust-sprite 26 November, 2012 @ 8:35 pm   292

Hi, just joined PS+ on my Vita. I’m getting a PS3 for xmas and was wondering if there is some way I can save the Nov games now for download later? I assume it has to be done on the PS3, so not, but thought it was worth asking.

 
Player42791 26 November, 2012 @ 9:29 pm   293

@dust-sprite

I don’t think you can add ps3 games to your download list through your vita. If you know someone with a ps3 though you could log on to theirs and add the games to your download list(no need to actually download them) then when you get your ps3 download them.

i applied for the free 30day trail ps plus but i didn’t get any email about it anyone know how to contact Sony about it ?
