Two Exclusive Demos For PlayStation Plus Members

Hope you are all enjoying the latest PlayStation Plus content. I firstly want to apologise for the slight delay in the delivery of this month’s content. There was a technical problem that meant all the content was available when you searched for it but wasn’t updated in the Plus section until first thing the next morning.

Anyway, here’s a couple of extra treats I’m sure you will enjoy.

Firstly we have managed to secure an exclusive early demo of Pro Evolution Soccer 2011.

You and a friend can jump into a match as Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chivas Guadalajara or Internacional and see how the team has improved the controls and visuals for yet another realistic football experience that is easy to jump in and play, and difficult and rewarding to master.

Secondly, you may have seen Richard Yap’s post last Friday about the exclusive God of War: Ghost of Sparta PSP demo for a few lucky PSN users. There were quite a few comments from Plus members asking for this demo and I don’t like to disappoint…

…so as of today the God of War: Ghost of Sparta demo is available to all Plus members on the Plus section of the PS3 store. This demo is exclusive to you guys three weeks before it goes live on the PSP Store for everyone.

The guys at Ready At Dawn worked really hard on getting this demo out early but its worth noting that the in game text is only in English. This definitely won’t stop everyone enjoying the great game play in this demo though.

*This demo is available to all PSP and PSPgo owners. PSPgo owners will need to first save the demo to a memory card and then save the demo to your PSPgo from the memory card.  However, we are working on this process so that you will soon be able to download the demo direct to your PSPgo.

Keep a look out for more Plus treats.

Hi, yes they will be going up at 3pm

@(PSPgo owners will need to first save the demo to a memory card and then save the demo to your PSPgo from the memory card. However, we are working on this process so that you will soon be able to download the demo direct to your PSPgo.)

I don’t have PSPgo memory card, as it already includes 16GB of storage. I hope this problem is solved soon.

5.1

Hi, we are looking into it and will get a fix up ASAP

Thanks for the two demos! Glad we’re getting the God of War demo! Don’t worry about the delay of content earlier this month, problems will happen every now and then.

PES 2011 FTW!
Can’t wait for the demo.

Usual 3pm update?

7.1

Glad your looking forward to it, should be ace! Yes, these will be going up at 3pm with the store refresh. enjoy

This is nice, but I _really_ wish us PSN+ members would get some priority in getting into betas for KILLZONE3, LBP2 etc.

8.1

This is def something we are looking into but obviously just depends on when these betas become available. Watch this space

awesome! was a bit miffed when we didn’t get the demo last week so happy we get it now :)

any chance of getting some newer PSN titles on PS+? I’ve held back from buying Joe Danger, Deathspank and Shank thinking they will turn up on PS+ at some point.

Awesome, looking forward to trying both out

Well, I got the God of War demo a few days ago, but isn’t work. In fact the PSP turn off after the credit titles.

My goodness two games I have no interest in, Wishing I had that plus subscription, no wait… :P

Why there is no DLC for God Of War 3?

PES demo? Lol i’ll play it for 1o secs and delete it just like evey PES demo, boring stuff.

Don’t have PSP so i can’t play the GoW demo.

Hope there are good demo’s coming out soon.

Nice work guys. Loving the content so far and fingers crossed for more soon.

…and FirstPlay included if possible :D

16

Thanks very much :) 2 top demos for me to try out :-p

17

Hi James, do you know if we here in the UK are getting the Ghost Of Sparta special edition like the US are? I’m not talking about the psp bundle, but just about the special edition of the game itself.

Thanks

17.1

Hey, I will check this out with Richard who looks after GOS and let you know if I get any info on it. Cheers

It’s rather stupid that the premium service doesn’t really reward people who already are deeply invested in PSN.

wooopeee. now would you kindly care to explain that while the early PES 2011 demo is nice whats happened with plus memembers being involved in both the deadnation and LBP2 beta’s? it would be nice to have an answer instead of dead silence.

19.1

We have always said that early/exclusive access to betas is something we will always try to get for Plus members and we are def still working on this. Watch this space

So basically, plus has turned into a service that delays content to the many??

20.1

Hi, No. We never delay the content so that Plus members get it early, we just ask the studios to work even harder to get us demos and exclusives before they are set to launch to the PSN community.

so, i buy 70% of the content i want on the psn store. have since jan 08.
my point is so far the content u offer four ur PSN PLUS service, ( 70% ) i have already.
so im asking what can u say to someone ( me ) who regulary buy the content they want, who looks at PSN PLUS as pointless. i dont see the advantage of me spending 40 pounds.
if i was new owner of a ps3 jan 2010 say, then yes PSN PLUS service works.

I say to u offer something to us regular content buyers.
rant over lol

I’d say this was half-assed, but I’m sure you guys are using your whole ass to do this.

to be honest i think this demo thing is nothing but abuse, because the overs will get it you can’t tell us thats our monthly treat can we not get so much % if ratchet and clank if we already have plus mabe another ps1 discount i want full games not demos

24

I got the GoW demo too but unfortunately it wont work. PSP Go user here. James, have you had any more complaint regarding this and is there any fixes going to be put in place. Also, are we getting any extra plus content today along with the ps store update later? ;)

Thanks and keep up the good work.

yeah… and more Demos nobody want. Moaning last Month, Moaning this Month. Look to the US and you have the reason.

Early Betas… Where?

26

@20 The PES demo isn’t due out untill the 15th anyway so how is PS+ delaying content for others? It’s doing the complete opposite and is just another reason why someone can benefit from subscribing.

I applaud the PS+ team for getting these demo’s out early for us and hope it continues.

ill have to give kratos a spin :)

why do I not have a neato + next to my avatar?

Nice surprise! I’m not into football myself, but will definitely try out the GOW PSP demo on my PSP GO. I think you’re doing a great job in delivering good content to us, i know some of my friends will be extatic over the PES demo!
Have a nice day both Sony folks and fellow PS3 gamers! :-)

FIFA demo will be out next week. PES today. Happy days.

As much i like this treat i got a spare code going. as i just got meself a New psp, but wouldn’t it be better that +Members get 1st pickings & yet we get 2nd pickings a week late after the 1st post last week.

I‘m in waiting mode for the Next 2 weeks just waiting till TGS-10 to see what features we getting. :D

Cool stuff and the fish tank theme is great

33

Yeah the fish tank is great :P

One thing, not related to this post: Rating system in PSS is nice new feature (well, quite new at least), by why can’t we rate a content we have on our drives? When I buy something from PSS, than play it for a while, I will not go to a store just to rate it. But I could rate it straight from XMB, please add an option like that…

35

yeeeehaaaaaw

When is PS+ gonna be updated with the PES demo? couldnt you get early fifa 11 access? I believe the Fifa demo launches next wednesday as well.

demo pes 2011 toomorow or tooday

Hey James,

Thanks for the demo’s. Allready got GOW-demo and i don’t like football,but the plus is getting better! ;)
Now only my plusicoon…..hehehe,it’s still missing! About the delay last week…..it can happen! Hope the MOVE doesn’t have delay! Can’t wait for next week!:)
Loving the fish tank theme by the way!
Keep up the good work!!!

Greetings Mark

Now that just sums up how stupid PS+ is. By not buying the games the developers will make less profit and in some cases not break even. This just gives them more reason to make games for the rival platform where their profit margins are higher. Also lets not forget everything to buy is a lot more expensive compared to Live, and this will continue that trend.

I hope Joe Danger doesn’t come to PS+, those guys are just a small company who could do with the cash to finance future titles.

Oh good, delaying “free” content for people who don’t pay for it.

does anyone know when this will be available in germany, italy and spain?

thanks

42

@36: Should be out today….What time, no-one knows but if it comes with the regular store update, around 3pm UK time.

Also why haven’t I got a Plus sign next to my avatar in comments section, do you have to sub for 1 year to get it in on the web?

Suggestion for future game add-on/dlc for plus members. I’d like to see the episodes from GTA DLC as an extra for PS+ members. This would be a nice incentive for people to subscribe to the service. Appreciate it, if it could be forwarded to the team!

44

Guys just download the demo`s , using auto download.
I am already playing

45

Sry for double post , just set the time were you are now and start downloading with the auto download :)

46

“Also why haven’t I got a Plus sign next to my avatar in comments section, do you have to sub for 1 year to get it in on the web?”

Sorry for this, but curious so posting to check if it appears now (logged out/ logged in).

This is nice a surprise.

Though I would of preferred two exclusive PS3 demo’s.
As i don’t own a PSP anymore (Terrible controls, designer should be fired!)

When is PS+ gonna be updated with the PES demo?

49

@James 1st Thanks for the demos. 2nd will we get the LBP 2 beta when it comes out next week? That will make a lot of as happy not that i’m not happy but that would be the first beta for us PS plus members.

And James try and get some Beta’s for PS+ :)

LBP2 beta invites are being sent out this week,
Would be a nice bonus if “existing” PS+ subs get an invite.
