PlayStation Plus: Your February content

sleepingdogs_PS Plus Update

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since the last update but we’re really excited about the year ahead for PlayStation Plus as we strive to bring you great content and fantastic discounts on a range of games and services.

There are three new PS3 games and two for PS Vita in the line-up for February, as well as awesome titles such as Guardians of Middle Earth, Mortal Kombat and Jet Set Radio that are already available right now! So, without further ado…

New PlayStation 3 content
We’re very happy to announce that from 6th February for one month, you can download the awesome Sleeping Dogs.

This action adventure game from our friends at Square Enix takes you deep into the violent criminal underworld of vibrant, neon-lit Hong Kong. You’ll assume the role of Wie Shen, an undercover cop looking to take down the Triads from the inside. You’ll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organisation, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover.

Critics worldwide agree it’s a top-tier open-world action title – make sure you grab this while it’s available!

Your second addition to the Instant Game Collection is the extremely fun F1 Race Stars from Codemasters. The Plus service has been a little shooter-heavy over the last couple of months so in the interest of diversity why not kick back, relax, get some friends round and have a good time with this addictive multiplayer racer.

Your final PS3 addition this month is ingenious first person puzzler Quantum Conundrum, designed by Kim Swift – one of the creators of Valve’s classic brain-teaser Portal.

Quantum Conundrum sends you on a quest of inter-dimensional problem-solving to rescue your mad-scientist uncle, who’s gone missing somewhere in his labyrinthine mansion. The professor’s latest invention, the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device (or ISD), should prove quite useful in navigating the obstacles in each room – such as death lasers and pools of skin-melting “science juice.” Gulp.

New PS Vita content
First up for PS Vita on 13th February is the oft-requested WipEout 2048. Reborn for PS Vita to take advantage of the system’s unique features and dazzling OLED screen you can race up to eight players simultaneously online and compete for first place on the global leaderboards.

Next up, on 20th February, is an incredibly addictive game from our friends at Ubisoft. Lumines: Electronic Symphony is the first PS Vita outing for this popular franchise, bringing together block-dropping puzzle action with an all-new 3D graphics engine and some of the biggest electronic music artists around.

As usual, over the coming weeks you can also expect exclusive PS Plus discounts on lots of other titles, including Just Cause 1 and 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the Dust 514 Mercenary Pack and Alien Breed Trilogy. We’ll update you on these offers and more in the weekly Store posts. Also, Plus members will have access to an exclusive theme for Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch from 30th January.

On top of all that, I’m very pleased to announce that as of 6th February we will once again be bringing you a fantastic discount on the 90 day membership for PlayStation Plus. For two whole weeks you’ll be able to get over 30% off the regular price – that’s €9.99/£7.99, reduced from €14.99/£11.99. A bargain, no?

In summary

Leaving the Plus Service in February:
6th February: BioShock 2
6th February: Ratchet and Clank All 4 One
6th February: Cubixx HD
13th February: Jet Set Radio
20th February: Pinball Arcade

Entering the Plus Service in February:
6th February: Sleeping Dogs
6th February: Quantum Conundrum
6th February: F1 Race Stars
13th February: WipEout 2048
20th February: Lumines Electronic Symphony

If you are not currently a Plus member, visit our PlayStation Plus site to find out more about the service. Here you’ll learn all you need to know about the Instant Game Collection, which gives members access to at least 14 games at any one time and over 65 games across the course of a 12 month subscription – all for a one-off payment of just £39.99.

Remember, if you’ve not got access to your PS3 or PS Vita then you can also buy through our online store.

Did you enjoy this?

AbandonedTrolley 28 January, 2013 @ 1:02 pm   2

So GAF was right in it’s leak….

Happy with these although have both Vita games already, WipEout on digital and Lumines on cart.

almighty-slayer 28 January, 2013 @ 1:03 pm   3

Great update. Look forward to playing Sleeping Dogs and Lumines. Been waiting to play Lumines for ages!

Giving away Sleeping Dogs so soon after a big sale (just before Xmas) might be a bit soon though. I would be a bit annoyed if i’d bought it.

liamlangan 28 January, 2013 @ 1:04 pm   4

SLEEPING DOGS!!!! I take back anything bad I might have ever said about SCEE, Nice one guys!

ImperatorA3 28 January, 2013 @ 1:04 pm   5

Nice! Keep it up!


Best ps+ month ever.

blackmamba707 28 January, 2013 @ 1:05 pm   7

amazing update yet again! haven’t played Sleeping Dogs yet, can’t wait for this one

for next months I’d love to see games like Enslaved, Shadows of the Damned, something like that


F1 race stars, got it already but great little game for those lucky enough not to buy it on release. Hopefully may come with some DLC.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:29 pm    

    Yeah it’s a really fun game, great for playing with friends. We are wokring on trying to get some discounts on the DLC will keep you all posted

turbogeek421 28 January, 2013 @ 1:06 pm   9

Already played Lumines but everything else is new to me! Was thinking about getting Sleeping Dogs only last night! Playstation Plus is more than money well spent!

blade1003605 28 January, 2013 @ 1:06 pm   10

Yes! Finally Wipeout Vita on Plus. Special thanks for Sleeping Dogs!

tiago-kun 28 January, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   11

Wow, a stellar mix, not really a fan of racers, but I do love Wipeout (one of those strange exceptions).

Sleeping Dogs and Quantum Conundrum are awesome, and just when I thought it couldn’t get better, you throw Lumines in the mix, the whole reason I got a PSP years ago (that and the metal gears and few other games that would eventually come out).

I’m not sure what to think of F1 Race Stars, but even if I don’t like it, 4 out of 5 is an excellent offer. Thanks Chris!

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:31 pm    

    Glad that you like the update, definitely give F1 Race Stars a go, its really fun and it just adds a little variety to the Instant Game Collection ๐Ÿ™‚

PARAN0ID_PANDA3 28 January, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   12

wow sleeping dogs and f1 stars must have not sold well to already be on plus even though i already completed it all im happy with is Quantum Conundrum

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:31 pm    

    We are happy with the sales of those titles – we just really like to please our Plus members ๐Ÿ™‚

chrisboers 28 January, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   13

Epic update. Really pleased to see Lumines and Wipeout on the Vita. Oh, and Sleeping Dogs! Fortunately I’ve been able to not buy that one until now. F1 will please the little one, and Quantum Conundrum, well, I really don’t know that much about it. Will need to check that one out!
All in all, stellar work, which should keep me busy for at least another month! (Hello backlog!)


great month, thank you

kategorierna 28 January, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   15

Already own both the Vita games, but I’m happy everyone gets the chance to play two such excellent and essential games. Great choice of PS3 games as well! Keep up the good work!

almighty-slayer 28 January, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   16

Just a couple of suggestions for the next few months as i know you usually take notice ๐Ÿ™‚

-Dead Island (Sequel coming soon so makes sense)
-Ninja Gaiden Plus (PSVita) (again, sequel coming soon)


    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:33 pm    

    Noted…..I have thought about Dead Island but it was such a good title which came out quite a while ago so I assume a lot of you would have already completed it many times??….feedback from all welcome

Xandrilios 28 January, 2013 @ 1:08 pm   17

Awesome game for PS+! Kudos, just sucks I just bought during christmas xD But seriously, very nice!


I held off on buying Quantum Conundrum to get Rainbow moon instead and I never ended up picking up QC so I’m looking forward to that.
Been wanting Sleeping Dogs for a while too so it will be a fun months.












Nightmare966 28 January, 2013 @ 1:08 pm   19

WipEout, woohoooo!

And I love to be getting Sleeping Dogs, but I hope that it’s the only one in quite a time that was discounted not too long ago :/

Anyways, WipEout, yay…

Thanks Chris ๐Ÿ™‚


Really Really Nice update…

Does Germany/Asutralia get Sleeping Dogs..? or is there a replacement game for them.?

doomsday619 28 January, 2013 @ 1:08 pm   21

Amazing update love PS+

nicolajNN 28 January, 2013 @ 1:09 pm   22

Great update! One thing though, wouldn’t it be possible for you, maybe starting in March, to have the Vita content update at the same time as the PS3 content?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:36 pm    

    This will not be possible I am afraid due to the way the schedule is structuered. If you remember the VITA service launched on November 21st so we were not able to start at the beginning of the month

Rob_Velocity 28 January, 2013 @ 1:09 pm   23

Boom! Best update yet for the best service in gaming today.

Only problem I have now is that I have to buy a second Vita memory card!


Incredible update. PS Plus team is just amazing. Thanks guys, you’re the best !


Excellent month.

ShogunDarius 28 January, 2013 @ 1:09 pm   26

Great line up.

I have a technical question, I got arkham city on its release and got the catwoman dlc with it, I joined plus normally this month so i thought i’d add a digital version of AC to my acc in case i ever needed it, but for some reason my acc acts like i got the catwoman dlc this month (going by date purchased) rather than in 2011.

What’s Up? if my sub lapsed would my access to that dlc lapse too despite the fact I got it with the physical release back in 2011?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:39 pm    

    I wouldn’t think that it would seeing as you got the catwoman DLC on release as well. If you purchased the DLC in 2011 then you should not lose it if your subscription lapsed but if you do experience this please let me know and we can look into it


Just finished Sleeping Dogs yesterday. So I am a little miffed with that.

It is still a good month overall.


wow outstanding selection with good variety. Can you let us know the game sizes please. Many thanks Chris & Sony


Great update as usual, PS+ is easily one of the best things to come from this generation of consoles.


At first, you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention. ๐Ÿ˜€

A great month for all “plusers” out there, thank you so much.

Question: Is there any DLC included in any of the titles ?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:42 pm    

    We are working on DLC discounts at the moment and I hope to be able to provide an update on this over the next couple of days, but at present no DLC comes free with the games above

thekiddfran 28 January, 2013 @ 1:11 pm   31

Incredible update! I will download and play every game! Well done PS+ team and Sony


Well happy about F1 race stars. Thanks for branching out from the usual shooters!


THANK YOU SONY YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Possibly one of the best Plus months ever for me! Even if the NeoGaf PS+ thread did spoil the surprise. ๐Ÿ˜›

DarkHeros09 28 January, 2013 @ 1:11 pm   35

Thank You So much, it’s gonna be a fantastic month< can't wait for Wipout.

irish-sid 28 January, 2013 @ 1:11 pm   36

I was gutted I missed out on sleeping dogs in the sale, so thanks, this is great! The puzzle game looks pretty good too, will def be giving that a go.
I have too much to play at the min, still have a back log of the lady couple of ps+ updates to get through.
Love ps+

Nightmare966 28 January, 2013 @ 1:11 pm   37

@Shogun: If for some reason you ever lost access to the Catwoman DLC, you have that nice Transaction History noting which code was used to redeem the DLC ๐Ÿ˜‰

My purchase also included the DLC, but mine had the right (redeem) date on it.


Awesome! Yay Wipeout!


very happy with Feb update….plenty more free games ๐Ÿ™‚

vonhammer 28 January, 2013 @ 1:13 pm   40

Good update ๐Ÿ™‚

SiborgSimoSctlnd 28 January, 2013 @ 1:14 pm   41

Only one I don’t have on PS3 is F1. Need to stop buying so may games. At least I have stuff for when I get a Vita though.

Thanks, fellas.

Singularity_01 28 January, 2013 @ 1:15 pm   42

PS+ is the best service

thank u Sony ๐Ÿ™‚


Games I allready own as usual. Sleeping Dogs I bought as little as 1 moth ago. A great game but Im tired of allways getting games at psn plus that I allready have.. Guess I have to stop buying games at all…. OR U guys at PSN blog could be better at telling us what we expect to get for free. As it is NOW I will never again buy a game from PSN since I never know if I will get it for free a moth or less later….

R_a_z_i_e_l 28 January, 2013 @ 1:15 pm   44

Couple Of Questions, Please Answer Any If You Can.

Do you know when Dokuro is coming to EU ?

Do you know when Ratchet And Clank FFA Is coming to the Vita ? I heard the blog mention the 29th but looks like its delayed again ?

Can you confirm the price of Sly Cooper 4 for PSN, Also the date of when the Demo will be available for Vita Owners ?

Is that February Vita Sale still happening if so could you give us any details ?

Much appreciated Thanks.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:16 pm    

    Dokuro is coming to the EU this Wednesday

    Ratchet and Clank FFA I believe will be Feb but a date has not been confirmed yet. There will be a blog post about it soon though.

    Sly Cooper 4 – I have no news on this…sorry

    The VITA sale is still happening…more details and title list early next week

Is there any chance to get Alien Breed Trilogy in PS Plus?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:46 pm    

    It’s nto going into Plus anytime soon but as of 6th Feb it does have a 20% Plus discount available

johnnycide 28 January, 2013 @ 1:16 pm   46

Great news! I was expecting some games I already own, so I’m really happy with sleeping dogs. Quantum conundrum and f1 race stars should make my girlfriend happy too. This ps plus membership has paid for itself about five times over since December!

Mishimotsu 28 January, 2013 @ 1:17 pm   47

Wow really wanted Sleeping Dogs for a while but didn’t get it for Christmas and still have a bunch of games from Crimbo to complete before I was going to buy it myselfโ€ฆ very nice addition that.

Was literally discussing Wipeout today and was saying how tempted I was to get it! So looking forward to thatโ€ฆ

And the F1 game looks pretty neat, so why not.


Shame Dark/Demon’s Souls wasn’t included. Would be s superb way to promote interest in the games with the sequel in development.

Still looking forward to playing F1 Race Stars and Sleeping Dogs


Wow, very nice, US got Foosball, we get Sleeping Dogs.
We are rocking it – Comparison Spreadsheet


great month for content glad i never bought f1 all stars in the sale the only reason i never is because the plus discount was not showing.
already have sleeping dogs but im glad plus members get to play this amazing title.

great vita content also, the only small gripe i have is that the 2 main ps3 titles have recently been on sale and i thought this scenario was going to be avoided, it just puts me off buying content thats on sale as its bound to end up free.

but kudos great month

DoYouLikeMyID 28 January, 2013 @ 1:17 pm   51

Awesome month guys! Really look forward to trying out Sleeping Dogs, Quantum Conundrum and WipEout 2048 ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ll of course try out the other titles as well. Great job ๐Ÿ˜‰

oh my god…..sleeping dogs free i don’t believe this.this game just launched this year and now here it is free…wow!you scee guys are awesome… ps+ month,if this deal does not invite some new users to ps+ i don’t know what will.and to top all of this quantum conundrum free too….awesome selection of games.
now this will definitely shut those guys up who are regularly complaining about the choice of games that are made free….

awesome work guys….just awesome…
thanks for the exclusive ni no kuni theme also i know it’ll be lovely..that game has awesome graphics

will there be any discounts on sleeping dogs add-ons,i know they are cheap already but still a discount is always welcome

proud ps+ user

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:51 pm    

    We are working on disounts for DLC for both Sleping Dogs and F1, I can’t guarantee anything at the moment but hopefully we will be able to update you over the coming days.

    Ps glad you like the Ni No Kuni theme, it was designed by a very talented young man in our offices here ๐Ÿ™‚

windsorblue01 28 January, 2013 @ 1:19 pm   53

oh my god love you chriss blueray games i havt got and they are all cool

To start off, brilliant Month.
But I was wondering if Mortal Kombat (Vita) will be available for Australians on PS Plus? It has been re-submitted to the classifications board and will now get an R18+ rating and be available in Australia.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:52 pm    

    I will ask the question and see if it is possible but I wouldn’t want to get anyones hopes up



empty_hooks 28 January, 2013 @ 1:20 pm   56

Good content this month but..

really glad i got sleeping dogs in your xmas sale – and it charted high due to that – just to give it away month and a bit later.
i cant be the only one.

No shooters, well played Chris and the rest of the Plus team ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you Sony!!
Was waiting for Wipeout 2048 to hit EU + as it did already land in the US, but lumines caught me off guard! Not to mention sleeping dogs + quantum conundrum…couldn’t be better!

And I only have Wipeout out of that selection, what a great month to look forward to!


Wow, you’ve done it again SCEE, fantastic job. I own most of them already but still, well done!

GodOfWarGreece 28 January, 2013 @ 1:22 pm   61

great month, nice update for ps plus and i can’t wait to bought a my ps3 to enjoy all these games that gives the ps plus,thank you

MartyTheParty 28 January, 2013 @ 1:23 pm   62

Awesome month for PS+, thanks Chris & the Team. Keep up the great work!

Jucksalbe 28 January, 2013 @ 1:23 pm   63

Very nice update. I’m looking forward to F1 Race Stars.
Sleeping Dogs, though, is not available on the German store. Have you decided on a replacement for that?

Nemeth050506 28 January, 2013 @ 1:23 pm   64

Is Sleeping Dogs also Free in Germany? I’m asking because of the 12 Christmas Gifts where Square enix did not allow to sale Sleeping Dogs in Germany

ShadowhunterrX 28 January, 2013 @ 1:23 pm   65

Thx for the games Sony ๐Ÿ˜€

SquareEnix nice job !! But please stop destroying Final Fantasy…


When I saw Sleeping Dogs on the post preview I was a little disappointed as that particular game doesn’t interest me (not that I expect every game to)….
…but them my goodness me did the rest of the post make up for it!
F1 Race Stars – brilliant, looking forward to it and really glad I bought LBPK in the sale instead of this.
Quantum Conundrum – great, it’s good to get a variety of interesting games.
WipEout 2048 – fantastic, especially for the cross-play with the PS3 version.
Lumines – perfect! I love Lumines but was reluctant to buy the game for ยฃ20-30.

PS Plus is simply the best thing in PlayStation gaming, keep it up.

Hi guys,
Realy good update this month. Congratulations!

Just think you could give Vita a little more of a boost. There are realy good games that aren’t blockbusters like Escape Plan, A-men or even Sine Mora could be easier to bring to +.

Is by any chance Rayman Origins commig to +? Or Assassins Creed (this one is a long shot :p)

Anyway, keep up the good work.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:06 pm    

    We tried a little while ago for Rayman Origins but we were not able to secure a deal I’m afraid.

    Never say never with Plus though, we are capable of wonderful things ๐Ÿ™‚

neutronbomb 28 January, 2013 @ 1:26 pm   68

A huge thank you to the plus team.BEST PLUS UPDATE EVER!

icedude666 28 January, 2013 @ 1:29 pm   69

This is probably the best plus update ever, i owe none of these games, and i was planning on buying lumines and wipeout for my vita. Seriously, this is really awesome.

razordude 28 January, 2013 @ 1:29 pm   70

That is an awesome month – for us Vita owners especially. Thanks!







Sleeping Dogs = nice
but i have 1 problem = to many other games are coming .
wil accept game but not download to play in future moth whith lesser games .

stil huge amount of time needed to login paswoard verification takes more then 1/2 min


Why do people like Wipeout? I’ve never understood what is so great about it. (Will try it on Vita …probably once again come to same conclusion.)

Anyways Nice PS+ month once again!


update , also mi advatar = away again !

CookieMonsterES 28 January, 2013 @ 1:32 pm   75

Impressive update, Chris!

Keep up the good job, team. We appreciate your efforts trying to get us different kind of games ๐Ÿ™‚


Hi Chris,
quick question.

Could you say anything about the rotation of Uncharted Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush?
When will these both titles leave the Vita IGC?

Cooleo1989 28 January, 2013 @ 1:32 pm   77

Looks like February is going to be an awesome month!

I was looking at buying sleeping dogs today and glad I decided against it.

Wipeout is going to be awesome as ever and sleeping dogs is an amazing game but the F1 racers is not that good, however its free and no one can complain about that. Looking forward to a new puzzle game too.

Good spread Sony and I’m looking forward to my new hours of upcoming gaming.

kenshinwind 28 January, 2013 @ 1:33 pm   78

oke but how does it work when a game is leaving plus the you stil have to pay for it after al the time you have playd the game?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:09 pm    

    Nope as long as you continue to have your subscription you will always own the game. It is only when you do not renew your sub that they will be removed from your account


I think you hamsters who work in the servers,geting not enough to eat, and our login and advatars are food to them nowh .

Shado0ow90 28 January, 2013 @ 1:37 pm   80

Nice content
By the way Chris is there any chance we’ll get dark souls in March

Just bought sleeping dogs but at least I will get f1 race stars

what i would like to know is if we are getting any new avatars? i know we sometimes get new themes. and that is good.

but i would like to request some god of war avatars prob excluisve to plus.

or some playstation themed avatars like a controller or a move item.

or we could get the 15th aniversery avatar like the us got. might be very late but im sure people would like that.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:10 pm    

    Avatar’s haven’t really been a priority for Plus over the last few months but if you guys get me a list of all the avatars you would like I can see if we can arrange a mass avatar drop


aaaaah . I bought sleeping dogs in sale. now its free. sucks big time.


I already own Sleeping Dogs and can confirm it’s a good fun open world romp of fighting, driving and karaoke. Surprised how quickly it’s come to PLUS, only came in July/August last year so only six months old.

GUDGER666 28 January, 2013 @ 1:41 pm   85

Why put sleeping dogs in the xmas sale then 8 weeks later give ut away for free that just takes the pi*s what a waste of money that was i may as well of thrown my money in the bin!!! What a joke that is.

Billybobbean 28 January, 2013 @ 1:42 pm   86

Excellent update, cant wait for Wipeout and Lumines

Chris could you let us know if there is any chance of seeing vita versions of LBP/Modnation racers/Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom on plus in the next few months?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:12 pm    

    Unlikely for all of those especially Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom, there are far to many stakeholders involved there for us to even think about negotiating a deal

If you’re taking suggestions, a Ratchet and Clank game would be nice. I’ve never played one.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:13 pm    

    Always taking suggestions… we currently have Ratchet and Clank All 4 One in the service at the moment until 6th Feb so grab it before it goes!


Hey Chris, any chance of having a discount on The Walking Dead: Season Pass, Unfinished Swan and Black Ops 2: Season Pass (not holding my breath on this one xD)?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:18 pm    

    We are still working on The Walking Dead… I more than anyone hope we get this discount secured soon!

    Unfinished Swan will be discounted in the future but we do not have a date nailed down for that yet.

    Black Ops 2 Season Pass…..unlikely I am afraid ๐Ÿ™


Already got Sleeping dogs in the christmas sale as well as many of its DLC in the sale after. A little disappointed that its offered for free so soon. But there is still many other games I dont have so not a bad month. Especially looking forward to Wipeout on the Vita. Was holding off just coz I got a hunch it might be given to ps+.


Wow what a great month for plus members, thanks Sony.

DoubleDriveX 28 January, 2013 @ 1:48 pm   91

So many awesome games with ps plus recently, which game do I start playing! So many choices ๐Ÿ˜€

almighty-slayer 28 January, 2013 @ 1:48 pm   92

Personally never played Dead Island, no. Not the sort of game i would probably ever get around to buying. If it were a part of PS+ IGC though, i’d definitely be interested in it.

Domatron0602 28 January, 2013 @ 1:50 pm   93

simply awesome, really wanted to play sleeping dogs but was waiting for a huge price drop but free is better than i hoped for. and looking forward to playing Quantum Conundrum and i was thinking i need to extend my psn+ subription and you drop the price ๐Ÿ˜€ and this all happens on my birthday (feb 6th)pretty nice birthday present from sony.

glad it wasn’t ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 too, literally only just bought it. ๐Ÿ˜€

got a question, do you know if we’ll be seeing a discount on the walking dead season pass in the near future? really want to get my hands on it, but for a little less of course.

dark_angel69 28 January, 2013 @ 1:52 pm   94

WOW! Sleeping Dogs!! Thanks Chris. Been waiting a long time for a decent game which I don’t already own. So excited to play this. Good job man!!

Was going to ask you something, Is there any future plans for having Portal 2 on PS+ someday down the road? Just needed to know if I was safe to buy it at some point (after I’m done with the lot I have at the moment) or wait for it. Feel free to private message me on PS3 if you rather keep it secret/surprise or something.

jos3moreira 28 January, 2013 @ 1:53 pm   95

Horrible month for PS Vita users again.
They totally abandoned it. No good plus content, no new games announcements. Nothing, not even convince Capcom to release the Resident Evil Revalations. Could you please release the best PSP titles for Vita as Plus content? Instead of those crappy ones?

I am afraid if you dont do something NOW, PS Vita will be dead by the end of the year.


As for a couple of sugestions: Rayman Origins, Okami HD, Tokyo Jungle, Dirt Showdown, Binary Domain, Dragon Age 2 and Dead Island

Skookie30 28 January, 2013 @ 1:54 pm   97

I happy take sleeping dog and the 2 vita, however what happen to partial with SCEA plus like Ross said.

1 question though you said a good year ahead, do you mean services for plus as well e.g that cloud gaming it was talk about last year.?


And where is the PSVita sale deals like SCEA had them for Xmas?

Since 2 months the mods on SCEE PS Blog are saying

‘Coming soon’

/Sarcasm on

Coming soon means Xmas 2013 or 2014?

Dear Chris and the rest of the team,

Have a couple of rubbish months of plus content please. There’s just too much great content and I can’t keep up…

Haha seriously you guys do a fantastic job! Looking forward to Sleeping Dogs, wipeout and lumines!

artopand 28 January, 2013 @ 1:55 pm   100

Great stuff guys, so a big thank you!
Can’t wait to play all of these games!
Been a PS Plus member for a year now, and feel so lucky, I’ve only already had one or two games from the IGC!!!!
Tell you what, make PS Plus available for PS4 at launch and I’m buying day 1.

pinkplaybunny 28 January, 2013 @ 1:56 pm   101


Best Plus update ever!!

I’ve been patiently waiting for Sleeping Dogs since it was released!!

All other games are also ones i’ve had my eye on!

Games I would still very much like to see free this year are as follows if you could try your hardest please!

Binary Domain
Of orcs and men
Escape plan
Crysis 1
Dragons Dogma
Mass Effect 1
Jurassic park
New Vegas GOTY

Not sure if some of these are digital but most are! Go get them Chris! xx

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 2:23 pm    

    Very nice list there! Especially Binary Domain, Dragons Dogma and Hitman, great taste! We can’t make promises but we do listen ๐Ÿ™‚

Billybobbean 28 January, 2013 @ 1:56 pm   102


Whats wrong with the vita content for this month? Wipeout is good, lumines is also good?

SkarGrassHard 28 January, 2013 @ 1:57 pm   103

Too bad my PS Plus subscription expires in feb. 22 I need to subscribe again damn it. >.< But gotta love Sony.

ownjoouk 28 January, 2013 @ 1:58 pm   104

Platinumed sleeping dogs only last night! Shame I didn’t get if free but I did get it discounted at Xmas so I can’t complain.

For anyone who hasn’t played sleeping dogs its a great game. A nice gap filler for GTA v ๐Ÿ˜€

loonyspoony 28 January, 2013 @ 1:59 pm   105

Downloading Quanttum Conundrum trial so I’ll be ready when it comes out.

For future games would love to see Gotham City Imposters and Payday The Heist for the UK or some of the Walking Dead series, US has had all of those.


Dammit, I accidentally signed up for 90 days membership after not reading the small print on a free offer, and I’ve already got Sleeping Dogs and Quantum Conundrum, which are the only 2 on the instant games I’d be interested in this month. Both of which are excellent though so if anyone hasn’t got them, download IMMEDIATELY when they become available ๐Ÿ˜‰
Might take advantage of the Alien Breed discount though, depending how much it is, been toying with the idea of getting it for a while now…

MaxiM_82 28 January, 2013 @ 1:59 pm   107

At least PS+ is kinda making up for the constant disappointments in PS Store department. WipEout 2048!!!

XnoobsquadX 28 January, 2013 @ 1:59 pm   108

Nice to see 2 awsome vita games added to plus next month lumines is like tetris on steroids simply amazingly addictive. Sadly i allrdy own both titels bought them both with the vita upon release still nice to see em on plus so everyone who didnt get a chance to grab em
can do so now!

immergingvirus 28 January, 2013 @ 2:00 pm   109

When is ratchet and klank on vita being released????????

CookieMonsterES 28 January, 2013 @ 2:00 pm   110

If you are taking suggestions, any of the HD Collections (Jak, Ratchet, GoW) for PS3 and Dungeon Hunter, Vita version, would be mine. As for Dead Island, dunno, the GOTY version includes all the extra content and seems to be quite cheap anyway.

kurichan78 28 January, 2013 @ 2:00 pm   111

I own 4 of the 5, please tell me that sleeping dogs DLC will be discounted as that would redeem the month for me.

As for the future, i would love

Unfinished Swan
Dead Island
Papo Y Yo

Also will Puyo Puyo PSP version ever be available digitally for Vita?


I’m very impressed, and I congratulate the PS Store Team for their work.
As a PS3/PS Vita and Xbox360 owner, I want to say that Sony in the deal/offer/discount department is light years ahead of Microsoft Deal of the Week.


That’s great! Always nice offers and great service!
Thanks a lot to Sony and who ever makes this. ๐Ÿ˜€

chad1990 28 January, 2013 @ 2:04 pm   114

Is there any chance of getting PSone/PS2 classics in the PS Plus line up at all???

Also, will there always be a minimum ยฃ5 top up on the store? Fed up of having to spend a fiver just to get certain DLC which is less than ยฃ1…



Wow, that’s a good month to be a PS+ subscriber, thanks and keep it coming ๐Ÿ™‚

Overlord1304 28 January, 2013 @ 2:07 pm   116

Great content for February! Looking forward to Sleeping Dogs ๐Ÿ™‚
Suggestions for March:
Demon’s Souls
Mass Effect
Joe Danger: The Movie


Just bought sleeping dogs a few weeks ago ๐Ÿ™ and I got Wipeout 2048 but this is postive as the online communty will hopefully get bigger ๐Ÿ˜€

F1 all stars and Lumines should be awesome!

Oh and Ninja Gaiden Sigma + for psvita in March would be nice as the sequel is releasing soon.

death_mamba 28 January, 2013 @ 2:07 pm   118

Impressive.I have made some great gaming Decisions which have saved me 100s of pounds!thanks to ps plus and the team behind it.N pat on my back for not buying Sleeping Dogs.Yet again great decision

jos3moreira 28 January, 2013 @ 2:09 pm   119

@ Good for you perhaps. They both suxx, very hard.
I am glad soo little makes you happy.

lianplay_1985 28 January, 2013 @ 2:11 pm   120

Thank goodness I sign up, first Batman then Mortal Kombat and Bioshock. And now Sleeping Dogs, keep it coming!!! go team PlayStation!!!!

DENIO_007 28 January, 2013 @ 2:12 pm   121

Hi Chris,

any chance of getting a co-op multiplayer in the future? You know something that you can just sit down with a friend for half and hour,along the lines of split-screen shooters or sports games.

Also any chance of Amalur being included in the plus soon?

Sp4rkyM4rk1337 28 January, 2013 @ 2:12 pm   122

Shame I’ve got a pile of work to get through, so any game I get for free is added to the backlog until April. Really looking forward to playing Sleeping Dogs and Lumines: Electronic Symphony.

Already got WipEout 2048, but there’s a good reason for that: it’s epic. Can’t wait to see more people playing multiplayer so I can complete the Online Campaign. ๐Ÿ˜€

QuietlyWrong 28 January, 2013 @ 2:13 pm   123

Forgive me for looking a gift horse in the mouth (best month ever…) but according to the (twelve-weekly) schedule originally laid out for the Instant Game Collection, Ratchet & Clank and Cubixx HD should have been replaced by F1 Race Stars and Quantum Conundrum on 30th January, not 6th February.

What gives?

Also, is it true that there are Plus subscribers in UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, who have *still* not been compensated for not receiving Red Dead Redemption or any alternative for September’s GOTM?


Amazing sellection of games.
Thanks I’m very happy with Plus!

The Dead Island sugestion is a good one, haven’t played it.
I heard it wasn’t as amazing as the trailer would like to think it would be.

TheKillingBean 28 January, 2013 @ 2:16 pm   125

Looks like I have to stop buying games, till now all the PS+ I already bought. But still going to download them, I like to have the games digital.

Catkiller1 28 January, 2013 @ 2:18 pm   126

@ Chris

Excellent, Excellent month ๐Ÿ™‚

I had Sleeping Dogs but traded it towards something else due to the value & I was going to pick it up again soon. F1 Race Stars has me intrigued, as I like the Mario Kart, Crash Team Racing style games.

Quantum Conundrum is a bonus too!

link1983 28 January, 2013 @ 2:18 pm   127

I bought Dead island when you put the gotye in a sale a few months ago. I absolutely loved it and would love to see it added to plus so that the undecided people can give it a shot. I would love to see Binary Domain and Twisted Metal added.

My personal ratings:

Sleeping Dogs B+
Maybe B- if the german version should be (heavily) cut. But I’m already thankful that we get it at all. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Quantum Conundrum B
More Portals = good. Enough said.

F1 Race Stars D
I guess I should be thankful that we finally got some racing games, as those have been heavily underrepresented in Plus so far, as RPGs too.
But I’d expect an higher quality title for such genres, when they are so rarely covered.

WipEout 2048 A-

Lumines Electronic Symphony B-
Not really my kind of game, but obviously a great game for anyone interested.

Overall: Kudos Chris, great month.

Jestersoil 28 January, 2013 @ 2:19 pm   129

WOW ! ! !
thank god i didn’t buy Sleeping Dogs earlier!! i also wanted to try out F1 Racers! that’s an awesome update Chris! THANKS ๐Ÿ˜€

tiago-kun 28 January, 2013 @ 2:19 pm   130

almighty-slayer suggestions are good.

Ninja gaiden would be very welcome, I didn’t enjoy Dead Island, but you can’t please everyone, other people may want it.
Shinobido 2 would be great and there are plenty other games, New Little King’s Story, Army Corps of Hell and so on, at least on Vita.
On PS3 I don’t have any strong suggestions, maybe Tales Of Graces F or Darksiders II (you did give us the first one) or Syndicate, I don’t know if many people got Syndicate, but the multiplayer demo was pretty fun.

And for a hard challenge: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on both platforms for TRANSFARRING would be pretty sweet ๐Ÿ˜€ But I imagine this is a very complicated deal to make…

Skykid360 28 January, 2013 @ 2:21 pm   131

Chris re Dead Island, i would rather not have it, reason being it was on a Massive Reduced price in the Sale recently, i imagine a lot of us (me included) would have got it then.

Sleeping Dogs is a nice title, i got it for Free with my PC’s Graphics Card. Also i have Wipeout (i would have thought everyone with a Vita would have already….hah but it is impossible to mind read and predict future Content for us – i picked mine up in the Holidays ๐Ÿ™ )

Everything else i don’t have so i can’t complain too much!! ๐Ÿ˜€

EpicRandom_XD 28 January, 2013 @ 2:21 pm   132

Wouldve been a great month for me if i didnt get sleeping dogs on the day of its release… However, i am still looking forward to what the other titles have to offer… Also is there any chance we will see the walking dead coming to ps+ ? Or maybe at least some discounts ? i would also like max payne 3 or some worthwile rpg’s but these are just suggestions, anyways thanks for the content ๐Ÿ™‚


chris quick question i have the funds and am ready to buy but i thought id check first, is street fighter 4 arcade on the horizon or am i safe to buy that now?

also great to hear you are working on discount for the walking dead ๐Ÿ™‚
hope telltale sort one out as they have been nice to other platforms with regards to discounts and they have a good history with plus with back to the future and sam and max being past plus titles so hopefully soon.

monoliet 28 January, 2013 @ 2:23 pm   134

not so intrested in getting free stuf ( games i want i have 9/10)
but like to see more % of new game release to ps+
also faster price down of games = release 59โ‚ฌ
after 6 month 39โ‚ฌ then after 1 jear = 25โ‚ฌ then only make deals so nowh en then to make even cheaper .

advatars = monsterhunter advatars + mh3 portabel ore new game to vita + comming to europe ๐Ÿ™‚

Edward_J_Fox 28 January, 2013 @ 2:24 pm   135

Can we please have some concrete information on Ratchet and Clank FFA/Q Force for the vita, the PSN page for the PS3 version still says it’s coming out in January, and some sites are still reporting it to be released tomorrow so what’s going on?

Artemisthemp 28 January, 2013 @ 2:25 pm   136

Happy that I can threat my PS3 to a Ni No Kuni Theme

Tei_LeonIV 28 January, 2013 @ 2:25 pm   137

Damn, I love you guys!!!

If you guys could get negotiate with square so we get Kingdom Hearts Birth by sleep (psp) and Final Fantasy Crisis Core on onto PSN that’ll mega. I don’t know why they would hesitate, I’m sure they’ve made a fortune on digital sales, especially with FFVII.

And for suggestions for future Plus content.
PS3: Folklore and Odyssey to the west (we still haven’t seen many adventure/fantasy games on Instant game collection)

PSVita: Resistance Burning skies and Marvel vs Capcom 3! Or… New Little King Story and Ragnarock Odyssey!


By the Way Chris, is there any chance of including the file size for the games. I might need to be looking for another Vita memory card soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

CiastekPL 28 January, 2013 @ 2:29 pm   139

Great update ๐Ÿ™‚
@Chris Howe Please not Dead Island!

novurdim 28 January, 2013 @ 2:30 pm   140

>-Ninja Gaiden Plus (PSVita) (again, sequel coming soon)
Yeah, that would be ideal. And a good way to boost sequel’s sales btw.

silvertalon-27 28 January, 2013 @ 2:31 pm   141

not bad

any chance of getting some RPG’s something like Hyperdimension Neptunia, Ar tonelico or even a Final Fantasy

@QuietlyWrong #121

Chris answered on that topic last week, here:

I wish Chris would be more clear and direct about such changes. Especially during such an announcement of high quality content, he really could afford to be honest and make it official that the rotation mode changes.

On the german blog they asked related to this delayed release from 30.1 to 6.2 and received even more confusing replies, denying that anything would change at all.

Maybe Chris simply doesn’t know why people care about this at all. When Ross described why the US IGC got 2 titles more in its collection (because their titles remain there 3 months instead of 2), he explained that we’d get more games per year due the 4 week rotation. 52/4 = 13 > 12. So Chris, it seems as if you’d take away 2 games and try to be sneaky about it, which never can be the smartest approach.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 3:40 pm    

    we are not being sneaky or taking games away, Cubixx HD and Ratchet and Clank will both be there until the 6th Feb. It is simply the way that the schedule works.

    Each hero title will either be in Plus for 4 or 5 weeks dependant on the amount of weeks in the month and each of the other titles will be in for either 11/12/13 weeks dependant on how we want the schedule to fit. As I said before ideally we want to drop content in on a more frequent basis so you have fresh stuff all the time but as I explained before we will not be moving to a rotation system

boardandy73 28 January, 2013 @ 2:33 pm   143

Great month.

Any chance of getting ‘Kingdom of Amalur’
and something more child friedly as the kid are feeling a bit left out (they have played Ratchet & Clank to death).


Is it safe to buy Demon’s Souls? It’s alright for me if it’s not going to be on PS+ (or around %50 discount) until the end of March. But if there is a chance?

salvogdaze 28 January, 2013 @ 2:35 pm   145

What a great selection, I love how Plus keeps it varied. Lumines ES is one great game with tons of replay value and I was already curious about Sleeping Dogs. +Wipeout, you’ve done it Sony! Keep it varied ๐Ÿ™‚

Gilgamesh29 28 January, 2013 @ 2:35 pm   146

What an update! Fantastic ๐Ÿ™‚

bennyrafal 28 January, 2013 @ 2:36 pm   147


Overlord1304 28 January, 2013 @ 2:36 pm   148

Oh, just thought of more suggestions: Okami HD, Portal 2… Keep up the awesome work ๐Ÿ™‚

MieszkoIV 28 January, 2013 @ 2:37 pm   149

Oh dear…

And I was supposed to finish writing my MA…

Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰


Ok sounds a bit long have hoped that they are leaving March or at least April.

KevinEHV 28 January, 2013 @ 2:38 pm   151

Even though i already own Sleeping Dogs on PC i still think it’s a great addition to my PS3 titles. Too bad i just bought Little Big Karting mainly for my gf, the F1 racer game would be good too.

I do hope in the future people can choose between like two main title, two lesser titles and two indie games. That way there’s less chance of someone getting a game (s)he already owns. Even if u have to choose between a AA title like Sleeping Dogs and a lesser game.

SergioDaly 28 January, 2013 @ 2:39 pm   152

Great update…

just to give some ideas for the months to come…
Rayman Origins – PS3 and Vita if possible
Portal 2 – for free and a sale for the motion DLC
LA Noire
ICO/Shadows of the Colossus – (its hard to buy this game now… its “out of stock” everywhere(retail of course))

murderdoll82 28 January, 2013 @ 2:40 pm   153

Hi Chris,
As always, great content. Unfortunately, I already have Sleeping dogs. Will Deus ex be available again anytime soon? I missed it when it was available last time.

Also, is there a plan to include The darkness 2 anytime soon?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 3:43 pm    

    Deus ex will not be in Plus anytime soon. It does currently have a Plus discount available on it though.

    Never say never with The Darkness 2

dean1076 28 January, 2013 @ 2:42 pm   154

any chance of a discount on ssx ยฃ57 is ridiculous really, i have it on disc but never play it as i hate keep changing discs all the time

salvogdaze 28 January, 2013 @ 2:43 pm   155

@Overlord1304 Portal 2 is disc-only but I would LOVE me some Okami HD!

CostaPablo 28 January, 2013 @ 2:44 pm   156

What an awesome month ๐Ÿ˜€ I love Sleeping Dogs! And Wipeout! God, this update is amazing.
I have a few suggestions for upcoming months:
Dead Island-been waiting for this one ๐Ÿ˜›
Resistance 3
Skyrim-I know this one must be hard to bring.
MGS Collection or God of War Collection.
Rayman Origins
Motorstorm RC

Hope you can give us some of these ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks

carlibux 28 January, 2013 @ 2:45 pm   157

WOW!!!!! Thank you SONY!!! I was so thrilled when I saw Sleeping Dogs (I finished it on steam but will enjoy to start over on my PS3). And F1 Race Stars…just wow!!!!

Okay, I need to ask this: why the lineup of games for plaus is so different from EU to US? While Europe gets Mortal Kombat, Sleeping Dogs, F1 Race Stars(more recent games), US gets Foosball, Zombie Apocalypse, retro city rampage…’s kinda unfair, in my opinion.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 3:45 pm    

    Although we are one company our Plus services are run slightly differently thats all


personally i’d rather dead island was left off of plus, it wasn’t a bad game.., but not particularly memorable.

as many people have said, id really like to see an RPG game on plus, (maybe demon souls, as that’s on the store now? give us all a challenge :P)
also very, VERY pleased with this months game selection, four of which I was already planning on getting, haven’t checked out lumines yet though so ill have to do that.


Any chance of getting Resistance Burning Skies as a Vita game for Plus? Would like to play the game but would prefer it from plus

Catkiller1 28 January, 2013 @ 2:47 pm   161

@ Chris

I’m with Skykid360 with regards to Dead Island. The GOTY Edition was reduced massively recently & I would expect most members already own it.

I would like to see any of the following:

Lego Lord Of The Rings, Devil May Cry HD Collection, Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy, Sly Trilogy (with 4 released this year), Okami HD, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, Dead Or Alive 5, Rayman Origins, Dishonoured, SSX, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, God Of War HD Collections Volumes 1 & 2, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7, Payday: The Heist (Only to boost the online community, as I already own this), Skydrift, Catherine, Dirt 3 or Dirt Showdown, Discount on DOOM Classic Collection, Driver: San Francisco, Epic Mickey 2, Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force.

Just a few suggestions ๐Ÿ˜‰


Great update considering i only own wipeout, looking forward to playing sleeping dogs heard nothing but good things about it

MadNess_M9 28 January, 2013 @ 2:53 pm   163

Sony, you spoil us too much, but i dont mind being a spoiled brat lol.

QUESTION, are their going to be any psp/ps2 games on the instant gaming colletion for both vita and ps3 coming soon.

the psp/ps2 has a great back catalogue of awesome games that i never had the chance to play on my psp like god of war chains of olympus (played ghost of sparta on my vita, loved it)

would be great to have some of those games for vita and ps3.

zero_light 28 January, 2013 @ 2:54 pm   164

Yay – good vita content this month.


Very excited for Feb’s PS+ content. Great work ๐Ÿ™‚ look forward to playing all three PS3 games. Need to get a Vita when the memory isn’t so exorbitantly priced so I can enjoy my ever growing PS Vita games collection from PS+, just not when the memory costs ยฃ60 for 32GB which isn’t enough for the amount of games PS+ offers or to have a healthy portable collection for on the go at any one time. Keep the great games coming on PS+ ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!!!

RealityRebel 28 January, 2013 @ 2:56 pm   166

Sooooo disappointed, so many other games they could’ve chosen….

I purchased Sleeping Dogs during the 12 deals of Christmas AND renewed my PS+ subscription at the beginning of Jan only for Sleeping Dogs to be made free


Nightmare966 28 January, 2013 @ 2:56 pm   167

@Catkiller: What a few! ๐Ÿ˜›

I wouldn’t mind seeing the MGS HD Collection someday. Planning on getting Revengeance but have never bought/played any of the Solid series, would help a lot in checking them.

Chris: In regards to avatars, seeing your earlier response: I believe that anything would serve as long as it’s a bit famous. You know, a bit of Assassin’s Creed, Devil May Cry, whatever avatars you might have from your very own first party titles too…


151# That will probably never happen. If that was the case people would go really mad :P.

SlimeTyrant 28 January, 2013 @ 2:57 pm   169

Wow, thanks for another stellar month! I’m actually looking at around a 3 month PS+ backlog when February comes ’round, but I’ve still got plenty of time to get through them. Sleeping Dogs is a game I’ve wanted since it’s release, but there’s just always been something else to play first; the F1 game looks nice and fun, perfect to play with my nephew (we’re currently playing R&C A4O), while Quantum Conundrum will be a pleasant change of pace from the other games I’ve played lately. I haven’t even had a chance to download any of this month’s content (except for Big Sky Infinity) yet, but bring on February!

BOPS_PRODUCTIONS 28 January, 2013 @ 2:59 pm   170

this is the best thing ever!!!!!


Nice by the way, I thought for PS+ they would not sell a game with discount and then a month later give it away for free with PS+. So what is this:

Deal 5: Sleeping Dogs โ€“ Was ยฃ49.99/โ‚ฌ59.99, now ยฃ15.99/โ‚ฌ19.99 (67% off). Additional 10% discount for PS Plus members (ยฃ14.39/โ‚ฌ17.99). Offer expires 11.59pm on 10th December

12 deals of Xmas, first selling it to some PS+ users and then giving it for free just a month later. Think those people aren’t so happy now…

Bacon_Crispies 28 January, 2013 @ 2:59 pm   172

Would love to see Virtue’s Last Reward added to Plus, or at least in the upcoming Vita sale.


Is Aliens: Colonial Marines getting digital release on PSN(PlayStationStore) ?


    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 3:48 pm    

    yes this will get a digital release but we do not have a confirmed date yet, we will let you know as soon as we do

poipoi11gk 28 January, 2013 @ 3:03 pm   174

Would love to see Ninja Gaiden and Disgaea 3 added to Plus for Vita!

hilts663 28 January, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   175

Now THIS is what i am talking about! Very good job

mark2606 28 January, 2013 @ 3:08 pm   176

Any chance of seeing Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition on PS+?

violentcop6 28 January, 2013 @ 3:10 pm   177

Bloody hell, I picked up Sleeping Dogs on a steam sale literally half an hour ago, great deal btw but i guess ill wait till March to renew my subscription. Thanks anyhow.

Erroneus 28 January, 2013 @ 3:11 pm   178

Great great update, well done guys.

But could you please make sure the Vita firmware guys knows that we really need the following features in the Vita, specially with all these big games coming out from PS+

* Folder support on home screen, right now it gets very messy fast ๐Ÿ™‚

* Don’t remove app icons when changing memory card!! Just like you don’t remove the icon for retail games, when switching retail game card. It messes up every form for custom sorting of apps/games, which is a huge problem, because these days you often have to switch between memory cards. If you start a game which is on another memory card, a simple “insert correct memory card” message will do and simple icons can’t take up much system memory.

* No 100 app limit, this is a strange limit

* Ask if you want to auto upload savegames to PS+ first time you start a game, just like on PS3.

Thanks, really hope these issues will be fixed fast, as they are really annoying problems.


Great PS Plus months. I went and brought Sleeping Dogs in October, DAMN!!


Sleeping dogs for free? Count me in. Thanks for the good news Chris:)

Now, if you could arrange a deal on Demons Souls, it would be awesome. It is an older title and the servers wont be running forever… doesnt have to be in the instant game collection, but it would be nice to have at least a few percents off the price for the plus members. As I read through the comments I am not the only one with this request.

Thanks again:)


Great line up especially for the vita which is why I got ps+ at the start of the year.
Quick question, really gutted I missed out on Batman Arckham City and was wondering if games ever come back, for those that started the plus subs late? If so any chance/when would Batman be available?


Great month of Plus content, cheers guys. Here are a few suggestions of games I’d love to see on PS+:

Rayman Origins (PS3 or Vita)
Okami HD
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Binary Domain
Demon Souls
Dragons Dogma
Dead Island (GOTY)
Yakuza 4
The Walking Dead (Even a discount would be nice)
Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones or Pirates of the Carribean

I would also like to see the Mass Effect trilogy DLC discounted as well if possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

ste_the_legend 28 January, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   183

Wow, very happy with the update. PS Plus has really been an essential purchase the past few months.Keepup the good work guys ๐Ÿ™‚

TheVVolf 28 January, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   184

I had Sleeping Dogs in my hands this morning, about to buy it…something told me to wait… ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ™‚ <– Glad Panda!

Can we get file sizes for the games perhaps?

Still loving my PS+ and paid up till 2014 & beyond… (I hold some of the stuff carries over to the PS4/Orbis/Awesomeness)

Pandarin_86 28 January, 2013 @ 3:22 pm   185

This is brilliant, Sony. Very glad I got a year of Playstation Plus now.

gollumclay 28 January, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   186

Any chance on a discount on Terraria or maybe free in March? ๐Ÿ˜€


thanks for the reply about street fighter chris, just went to buy it but noticed its 17gb, think ill just get the disc ๐Ÿ™‚

1+ vote for disgaea 3 for vita update in future
and hows about little big planet karting
or ratchet and clank collection

TitManSoldier 28 January, 2013 @ 3:32 pm   188

Its so sad that i buy games on the first day and they end up free. *Sigh*. I love the fact tht SD is free for everyone because its a brilliant game but then i have to wait a month for my next games because i have all. Except lumines which i shall try my plus runs out on the 2/03 which is a shame.

TheVVolf 28 January, 2013 @ 3:32 pm   189

How about “Eye of Judgment” DLC? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ (As an extra, just thrown in, like the Fallout DLC back in ye olden days)

Alex-1124 28 January, 2013 @ 3:34 pm   190

Got a few avatar suggestions for PS+

Since Deus Ex HR has been cropping up on PS+ quite a bit these past few months, why not get some more of them?

Another idea, what about having monthly avatars for the big game of the month, make them exclusive to PS+ for a month either free or 20 odd pence and after that let anyone buy it, should please everyone.

As far as game suggestions go, Killzone HD and Resistance BS would be fantastic. We’ve had action, fighting, adventure genres and now a racing game, hopefully next we get a FPS.

Anyway top quality stuff as usual, I love you all :).

TitManSoldier 28 January, 2013 @ 3:35 pm   191

Keep it up though* im counting on you to make my playstation FULL

paulg_78 28 January, 2013 @ 3:38 pm   192

Great month, just finished far cry 3 so got time for sleeping dogs

itsshinzo 28 January, 2013 @ 3:44 pm   193

Sleeping dogs AND a discount on PS plus sub?

Oh go on then Playstation, you’ve tempted me <3

Was looking into buying sleeping dogs anyway, now I don't have too!

Luna_Dragon 28 January, 2013 @ 3:45 pm   194

Hi Chris great youre listening to suggestions ๐Ÿ™‚
I agree about not putting Dead Island on but thats obviously biased as I already bought it when it had a nice Plus discount on it.

I will echo the wishes of Dragon’s Dogma and Mass Effect 1 though! PLEASE try and get some good RPGS/fantasy adventure types up!!

And don’t give up on Rayman Origins either, I believe in your wonderous magic ๐Ÿ˜‰


People should buy Sleeping Dogs anyway

ghostmixu 28 January, 2013 @ 3:47 pm   196

Sleeping dogs and Quantum Conundrum! Impressive! Going to renew PS+ ASAP!

Cloud_AC 28 January, 2013 @ 3:52 pm   197

Since you started giving digital downloads of retail games, the only game a didn’t own already was Limbo. It’s sad but I will not resubscribe to PS Plus until you change it back. I want games exclusive to the PS Store not digital versions of games I can buy in retailers. Why can’t I have Okami HD or Killzone HD? X-Men Arcade or Resident Evil 4? Even a more obscure game no one knows can be a pleasant surprise compared to gigantic downloadable versions of games I already own in physical format. Give us the possibility to choose if we want retail games or PS Store-exclusive games. Please, consider that option.

ghostmixu 28 January, 2013 @ 3:53 pm   198

Sorry for double post. Forgot about wishes!

For PS3

1)Rayman Origins
2)Dark Souls/ Demon Souls / Skyrim / Dragon’s dogma (RPG! ๐Ÿ™‚
3) Something from the LEGO series
4) Uncharted: Drakeโ€™s Fortune

Tzarus_PL 28 January, 2013 @ 3:56 pm   199

Great update, well done guys!

Here are my 2 cents regarding future updates, I would gladly welcome these in PS+ collection:
– Demon’s Souls (would be nice to have more RPG titles in general)
– Dead Island
– Okami HD
– Walking Dead season discount

Ren_ecko 28 January, 2013 @ 3:58 pm   200

I’m not sure how these things work or if it’s even possible but have you guys thought about getting a DD copy of GoW3 in the march IGC to drum up some hype for Ascension?

Oh and great update this month, I missed the 12 deals thing because I was travelling so I didn’t pull the trigger on SD, these last few months gave been great with sales+IGC.


Sorry can I just clarify. Have you moved away from a four week rotation to a monthly one? If so then surely you are being underhanded as it was originally announced that although we were getting less games on plus in one go, over the year we should get more due to the shorter rotation policy.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 4:24 pm    

    Well there are four / five weeks in a month so it has always been the same. Our hero titles will never be in for less than four weeks which we have always done and our other titles will always be in for a minimum of 11 weeks but usually 12 weeks.

    In my time here I don’t believe that we have had a game in for less than 12 weeks. We are still providing exactly the same amount of games so you have nothing to worry about

willbillbill 28 January, 2013 @ 3:59 pm   202

Just want to let SCEE know that thanks to PSPlus I will for sure be getting the next playstation day 1.
Plus is amazing and offers games that I would never normally play but now can’t wait for a sequels.
I have Deadspace and Bioshock on anther machine but I will be buying DS3 and Infinite on ps3 as it deserves our support more than the competing device.
Always been loyal to sony but this gen I got the other one first I wont make that mistake again SONY first all the way.

P.S. hold back with the great plus content or invent more hours in the day your choice. I can’t keep up!


Great stuff.
However, I would like to see some more RPGs in the instant game collection. Dragon’s Dogma might be a bit far fetched, but I’ll throw that idea in there.

neutronbomb 28 January, 2013 @ 4:00 pm   204

Could we have a good Jrpg in plus?

#197 I wouldn’t put that to vote if I were you.

jefned95 28 January, 2013 @ 4:01 pm   205

Hey Chris!
Again a very good list of games that will be added to PS+.
Maybe i’m asking a bit much, but i had some suggestions.
The games that are very appealing are:

Ssx (2012)
Dirt 3
Beyond good and evil HD
Deus ex human revolution ( i don’t know if these games are already featured).

Have a nice day!

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 4:27 pm    

    A nice list, we thought about SSX but it was not possible at present.

    Deus ex human revolution was in Plus back in July so we won’t be using it again. It does have a Plus discount on it at the moment though


Some ideas for you that arent actually games Chris.
Firstly, how about some sort of auto-discount on everything after a few months, I mean some games sit at ยฃ60 on release (despite already being <ยฃ25 in stores) and stay that high forever (despite the games being <ยฃ7 on disk o_O) , same with DLC sometimes it costs more than the disk itself.
Secondly, and its likely stupidly hard to do, but what about changing it so we get more options and therefore more variety, so for example have 6 games to choose from each month, with 12 at a time (so Janurary-Feb, Feb-March, March-April) and you get to choose 4 a month? just an idea.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 4:28 pm    

    the auto discounting idea is nice but we do not control pricing, secondly it’ s a good idea to have a little more choice like that but the way that we agree deals for Plus with publishers means that we need to provide specific dates when content will be used etc so it takes that option out of our hands

Nelsonslb1991 28 January, 2013 @ 4:03 pm   207

AWESOME. so many awesome games. everyone that have a ps3 should have psn plus. i told all my friends that have a ps3 or will buy one to buy psn plus. itยดs like christmas every month xD


wow, you’re really spoiling us lately.
Batman, and now this?

you have shares in hard drive manufacturers or something? ^_^

gtamike_TSGK 28 January, 2013 @ 4:05 pm   209

Add more PS1 games to UK Store please ๐Ÿ™‚

Dono7526 28 January, 2013 @ 4:07 pm   210

Chris, gotta say i was wrong on the forum, and bow down gracefully. sleeping dogs, good work dude. dont care for the other games, but that makes plus worth while. nice one. Whats the chances of having spanking new game trials for the plus nation ??


I’m generally happy about the quality of constant just a bit worried that it looks like the goal posts have been moved from when the igc started

swisstylez 28 January, 2013 @ 4:10 pm   212

I’m just waiting for my Ps+ (North America) to laugh it off, because the give always provide the best deals just like last week when we received Fossball, which you may know is one of the best games ever…. =( can’t wait for my membership to expire so that I can switch to EU


Great content next month! I loved Sleeping Dogs , had traded it in already – but I think with this nice freebie I am going to pick up the Zombie DLC that came out ๐Ÿ™‚ Also did not play Wipeout and Lumines – so that is a welcome addition to my Vita’s library, too!

Thanks guys for this great update !

R3dC3llTran3 28 January, 2013 @ 4:12 pm   214

Another great update ! Loved it ! Chris can you please tell me the size of F1, Quantum and wipeout?
Thanks !

Infa-Mouse 28 January, 2013 @ 4:23 pm   215


Would it be possible to get PS+ on my 360 as my PS3 is now brimmed. Mr Gates seems to be getting more and more charitable nowadays so I’m sure it won’t be a problem.

I’ve got about 15gb left, reckon I can last till April, so, y’know, no rush…


WesternGates 28 January, 2013 @ 4:24 pm   216

I actually second the decision for Dead Island. How about some more (non shooter) games like Saint Row the Third or Portal 2 ๐Ÿ˜€

SCOTCHmfCHIEF 28 January, 2013 @ 4:25 pm   217

well done Sony. really good games there. this is probably highly unlikely, but any chance of hitman next, dont ask you dont get, normally lol.

nakano1987 28 January, 2013 @ 4:29 pm   218

CubixxHD was a fun little game. Sleeping Dogs sounds interesting. I’m not sure whether I have time to play it, though (haven’t finished any PS Plus game yet). Well, at least I will try the Ni No Kuni theme.

DjSparx162 28 January, 2013 @ 4:30 pm   219

Had to sign in to comment on this one WOW on 2 occasions.
1st WOW – the games, thanks for the awesome games this month, was thinking about buying wipeout but decided against it because of Jet Set Radio being the main game for vita last month, was expecting a big title this month and i wasn’t wrong, then you throw Luminies into the mix as well, another game i was planning on purchasing.

as for the PS3 titles, AWESOME was looking into sleeping dogs but couldn’t justify the prices for it for a game that i may or may not like, and F1 race stars, i gave the demo a go, didn’t fall in love with it, but i thought that could just be the demo not giving a massive scope in the gameplay. so thank you for those

2nd WOW, this is the first blog post where i’ve seen no complaints about whats in plus this month. that is a big WOW there’s normally a few.


vita games suggestion for next month

Dynasty Warriors Next
Virtues Last Reward
New Little King Story

Japan received with plus Dynasty warriors Next – please make this happen for us in the EU

MA76_666 28 January, 2013 @ 4:31 pm   221

hi Chris …this is the 2nd time the german store get a (replacement) within a day ..happy for them but what about saudi store ?? how long have we been waiting and all we been getting is false words time after time ?? SEP GOTM …..

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 5:02 pm    

    They are not getting a replacement they are just getting the same game as everyone else.

    We are trying to arrange some sort of compensation for those users who did not get a game at all in September

robbo1337 28 January, 2013 @ 4:36 pm   222

Sleeping Dogs is the bomb. Shame I already bought it and all the DLC I could find mind…

zxRATTLExz 28 January, 2013 @ 4:37 pm   223

The content seems good but i’m a little puzzled. I’m sure i read a while ago that items that receive a Plus discount wouldn’t be available on the IGC for quite some time. I’m a little bit annoyed that having been enticed by a plus discount on Sleeping Dogs during the Xmas sale it is now available free 1 month later.

It’s also a little annoying to see items that are added to the IGC receive a plus discount not long after. I appreciate that new plus members may want to take up the offer but it’s like the same content doing the rounds over and over. How long before you start to recycle the freebies? Can’t complain overall as the service is worth the money in the long run but this sort of thing needs to stop in my opinion.

Finally, when is the 1st anniversary of the IGC as i’m wondering when Motorstorm,LBP2 and Infamous 2 will be replaced.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 5:05 pm    

    We can never promise not to use something that has been on sale, we try to avoid it but we put a lot of items on sale throughout the year so eventually you will see something cross.

    This is why we always say we try not to but it’s not always possible.

    Motorstorm, LBP2 and inFamous 2 are likely to be replaced in the summer

supersmith2500 28 January, 2013 @ 4:41 pm   224

Gotta say amazing line-up for next’s month Plus and no sign of FPS for once which is great. Hate to say but I already got Sleeping Dogs in my collection but trust me, worth your time and amazing game in my opinion. F1 Race Stars, loved F1 games but this one mashes F1 and Mario Kart together so that’s a another to look forward to play from the good ol guys at Codies.

Also, great to see WipEout 2048 being part of IGC. Awesome games for next month’s Chris.


Chris, it may have been before your time but if that is the case then you are not providing the amount of games originally stated. It was clearly stated here on the blog that we would get more than the USA because we were rotating games quicker. If you look back at the comments I was skeptical at the time you would follow through with the promise but we were assured so I thought I would wait and see. I really think you should look back at this as to me it seems like just another SCEE lie and its probably time you just admitted to things like this. Please look into this and let us know because its a very wrong thing to do to loyal customers

cowbanana 28 January, 2013 @ 4:44 pm   226

Nice content, I am satisfied ๐Ÿ™‚

Sleeping Dogs looks nice and it’s one of those games I never got around to playing.

I never picked up Lumines, so that’s another nice Plus game.

I already have WipEout 2048 on card, but having it digitally can be a nice convenience when playing other cards.

Killing Studio Liverpool is the dumbest move ever made by Sony. Next-gen WipEout is probably the only title that could have sold me a PS4 when it launches. Now I’ll just wait until a price drop. WipEout is a total must-have and Sony killed the creators along with the last magic of Psygnosis. Shame on you Sony!

robbenslb 28 January, 2013 @ 4:46 pm   227

This is definitely an amazing month, but where’s that Foosball discount you announced around a month ago?

AlexAtkinUK 28 January, 2013 @ 4:46 pm   228

So, can we have a 64GB/128GB memory card for Vita now please? Otherwise PSN+ is going to become pretty useless on my Vita after next month as I will have no space left. Its bad enough I had to import the memory card from the US to get THIS big (32GB).

Having to move content from PS3/PC to Vita all the time goes completely against the whole point of a portable console with digital downloads, having your whole game collection in your pocket at all times.


Thank you very much Sony and Square Enix for giving great games.

Can you please give Red Dead Redemption (September Game of the Month) for Saudi Arabian PlayStation Plus users as you are going to give Sleeping Dogs for Germany, please? T_T

Please we beg you. T_T

If you can’t, just say it and don’t get our hopes up (I think last time you said you are discussing it.) T_T

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 4:54 pm    

    It is unlikely that we will be able to give you the game we are currently trying to arrange some sort of compensation for not being able to provide anything for you

Terarded 28 January, 2013 @ 4:49 pm   230

wahhhhh i bought sleeping dogs on the 12 deals of christmas. im broke at the moment and was really hoping for a new game to play ๐Ÿ™ im gonna make sure to not be sucked in from deals anymore!


Great month, although I feel a bit stupid for buying Sleeping Dogs during the Christmas sale and I still haven’t touched it, due to my huge backlog.

I think I’ll stop buying games and just wait till they come available on Plus.

Games which should be on Plus: Dokuro, Dyad, The Cave, Walking Dead Season Pass, Closure (if it ever comes to Europe, that is), Catherine, Rayman Origins (Vita), DMC, Ni no Kuni,…

Keep up the good work!

SergioDaly 28 January, 2013 @ 4:52 pm   232

i have a question… could a “season pass” be included in the IGC?
example: max payne 3 has a season pass. you offer the season pass free and a sale discount on the game… would boost game sales here (PS Store) and in retail… think about it.

Myndzius 28 January, 2013 @ 4:55 pm   233

Aw, was quite hoping for Catherine. Any chance this might be coming to ps+ some time?

Other than that, thanks for the great games for the month!

Tagged_Deaf 28 January, 2013 @ 4:59 pm   234

Playstation Plus NEVER disappoint me at all.

Sleeping Dog free? F1 Race Stars free? Quantum Conundrum free? Nice, very nice.

It would set me up for while till Dead Space 3 is released!


Chris, given that things stay ridiculously high for so long really its worth having a complete shuffle and getting more power for the store team? I mean given that internet speeds are still pretty meh the majority of people would still rather buy from stores, so unless it moves with it and a bit less then its not going to overtake it anytime soon. And as for if the PS4 is diskdriveless or wont play second hand games? can see it dying out compared to the Steam Box, assuming prices will be as good as people say they are on the PC :o.
Secondly, is it really that hard to say that a game will be available for a second month to the devs?
Thridly I am not fond of the Deus Ex potential back on PS+ as a freebie suggestion a few pages back, it already pops up frequently for discounts, no repeats =/.
Fourthly you seem to be asking for game suggestions, for now FarCry 3 sticks out, as does Heavy Rain? (no idea if the controls were ever made less, bad the demo was just bleh) , possibly Dragons Dogma and Binary Domain.

TerrorOfDeath86 28 January, 2013 @ 5:00 pm   236

Please disregard my earlier post as I just read your reply tp #229 Anyway great update for February, keep it up ๐Ÿ™‚

SuperJag86 28 January, 2013 @ 5:05 pm   237

Hi Chris,

Any chance of Retro City Rampage coming to PS Plus on Vita anytime soon?
I was waiting for ages to pick this up on PSN but then I couldn’t wait and bought it on PC over Christmas! If only I’d waited a few weeks more!
It would be really cool if that came to Plus.

Also I saw you said that SSX won’t be coming to Plus soon, but could you keep trying as that would be a great addition.

Great selection for February even though I already have all but one of the games.

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 5:08 pm    

    Sorry RCR will not be on PS Plus VITA anytime soon. The developer confirmed this on his own blog when the game was released on the store.

    will keep trying for SSX

TerrorOfDeath86 28 January, 2013 @ 5:09 pm   238

It seems the official Playstation app didn’t post the 1st post in which I complained about September’s GOTM. Kindly disregard both posts XD


Hi Chris

In your answer to post 78, you wrote that as long as are a member you own the game. Does that apply to games that are removed from the Plus list as well?

    Chris Howe 28 January, 2013 @ 5:19 pm    

    Only if you have downloaded them when they are available within the Plus service. You can’t download items for free that are no longer in the Plus content list

S-o-h-a-i-l 28 January, 2013 @ 5:22 pm   240

Chris, please add Okami HD to the IGC !

Or at the least, try to net a discount for Plus members.

davidgulbrandsen 28 January, 2013 @ 5:25 pm   241

Is it safe to buy assassin’s creed 3 liberation for Ps Vita?

Great job on feb content for ps+!


will any of the past free games be reinstated in the future. really gutted I missed Batman Arkham city. Is it worth buying the GOTY or will the download ever be back out?

lizziebear66 28 January, 2013 @ 5:33 pm   243

Wow great plus for feb
Can’t wait to play F1 race stars, love racing games ๐Ÿ™‚

eban1988 28 January, 2013 @ 5:33 pm   244

It was worth waiting for. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

Any chance for RUSE or Dungeon Hunter Alliance? Havent played in strategy (not counting Guardians of ME, but this matchmaking problems…) or hack and slash on PS3 yet.
Also, any chance for more “One Console – Two players” games?

residentSteve 28 January, 2013 @ 5:36 pm   245

Did not think much of sleeping dogs before and traded it in but will give it another try hope max Payne 3 comes to plus.
One game series I still can’t get into is infamous Ive got both of them free but still don’t like them yet, but I did take 4 years on and off to complete mass effect 1.

Robinworldwide 28 January, 2013 @ 5:38 pm   246

This is the best plus update in my long time membership, yet i’m gutted. I bought sleeping dogs in the december sale and can’t fathom why sony would put it in a sale, let loyal plus customers pay for it and then give it away for free a month later for those very same people and think they will be content. I was so tempted to buy F1 all stars as well, but boy am i glad i didn’t! I’m not really upset because it was my own choice to buy it, but sony should realize that the only thing they have accomplished with this on my end is that i will NOT buy psn games on sale anymore and i’m sure more people feel the same. You’re losing money this way sony!!

Anyway, like i said…best update ever. On the first page you asked for feedback on Dead Island, i think that’d be awesome!!

Sora__87 28 January, 2013 @ 5:42 pm   247

Any chance of the discount The Unfinished Swan that America got over here in EU? ๐Ÿ™‚


Another great lineup coming in February especially as I don’t have any of those 5 games ๐Ÿ˜€ awesome value!

But I’ve been a subscriber since September and still not one JRPG (my favourite genre) ๐Ÿ™

Hopefully one will appear in the next month… I can’t really complain though since it’s such an awesome subscription! LONG LIVE PLAY!

kgoparaju 28 January, 2013 @ 5:46 pm   249

wow, I was just gonna purchase sleeping dogs for PC because it’s on a really good sale on Steam. I also added it to the cart and I came across this article before I made the final purchase. Awesome lol

kgoparaju 28 January, 2013 @ 5:51 pm   250

Hey, I got a question.
Facebook post says this is just the “starters”. So will we get more free games ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚

Roscoe182 28 January, 2013 @ 5:51 pm   251

i am desperate for some batman avatars.

nonkelvladimir 28 January, 2013 @ 6:06 pm   252

Thank you for this update – Sleeping Dogs makes my day!

I’m also hoping to encounter some RPGs in the IGC one day. I would love stuff like Elder Scrolls: Oblivion or Kingdoms Of Amaldur!
(Or even better, as I am playing Dragons Age Origins now: how about Dragons Age 2? ๐Ÿ™‚

Roxas598 28 January, 2013 @ 6:07 pm   253

Awesome month for plus! some requests tho (if possible)

uncharted 1&2

@Chris Howe
Honestly, I’m a bit shocked that you don’t understand what is going wrong here.

Ross promised us 2 games every 4 weeks, not every 4 or 5 weeks depending on the length of the month. He granted us that we would receive 13*2 games, instead of 12*2 as in the USA, as a year has 52 weeks. And 52/4 is 13, not 12. Hell, he even did the calculation himself and till he left, it worked exactly that way as he had promised.

And now you turn up and tell us that it we don’t receive 2 games every 4 weeks, as they’d come when they replace other titles, which might remain longer than 8 weeks in the IGC.
I seriously like what you offer via Plus this month, but I must also criticize such obvious failures. You can’t claim that you are faithful to Ross’ rotation, just because you seem to ignorant to such facts as the fixed 4/8 week rotation.

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:54 am    

    We promise to deliver you up to 65 games in a year across the different platforms as all our advetising shows. How this fits into the schedule can be determined by many factors some of which are out of our control but whatever happens we will deliver that amount so you are not going to miss out on any games.

    We also delivered you extra PS3 titles outside of the normal update in the form of Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground in December if you remember correctly.

morsmelk 28 January, 2013 @ 6:10 pm   255

Yeeeeeaaah! Don’t have a single one of those games ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks!

hilts663 28 January, 2013 @ 6:10 pm   256

Dead Island would be great

Tsubaki_14 28 January, 2013 @ 6:10 pm   257

ahh, as my funds are rather limited so I have to pick very carefully which games I get, I am very happy to see sleeping dogs on the list I’ve wanted to try it out! Thanks guys ๐Ÿ˜€

ToeSweet 28 January, 2013 @ 6:16 pm   258

Brill line up, for one not got any! This ps+ is well worth the money I tells yer!

morsmelk 28 January, 2013 @ 6:23 pm   259

#16 – Chris: I’ve got Dead Island, but a discount on the Bloodbath Arena dlc is allways welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

xIQuikScopezIx- 28 January, 2013 @ 6:25 pm   260

Nice update, unfortunately i already had Sleeping Dogs months back but that’s the way the cookie crumbles

Any chance of getting some God of War games for Plus for March, i imagine it would be easier than lots of other titles because you’s (Sony) are the publishers and own the developers….Also it would be a great way to promote Gow of War: Ascension…If you’s can’t make it free, maybe even a discount? That would keep me happy =D

crocks24 28 January, 2013 @ 6:29 pm   261

Dear PS Plus. For Marchs content please can you provide time. I now have plenty of games but no time. I havent even finished darksiders.
I would gladly pay for time.

Kreato-bgr 28 January, 2013 @ 6:31 pm   262

OH Yeah …I thought that you will release Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PS+ this month because of the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus release for PSVITA, but WipEout and Lumines – that rocks \m/ … Now I have to renew my PS+ subscription in february

MA76_666 28 January, 2013 @ 6:32 pm   263

Chris i know its not a replacement but the game was blocked or unreleased,now it will be available with plus and that’s great for our german friends (not hating).

Now i will just ask you :how do you think any saudi plus gamer
feels like when he sees this & MK ? after waiting for MONTHS


I got nothing but respect for you & Fred as both of you have been up front and honest with us from day one …Jawad repeatedly give us BS.
(don’t make me dig up your words Jawad)


“Please we beg you. T_T” seriously ???

where about r you in saudi i’ll mail you new rdr or f you in
dhahran pm me

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:53 am    

    As I have previously said we are working on a way to compensate users in Saudi Arabia who did not get Red Dead Redepmtion. At present we are working with our analyst to find out which accounts were impacted which is a long manual process so please stick with us but we will resolve it and compensate

Kudos on this new content lso wen will rachet and clank q force b available for download on the vita

cryingpuma 28 January, 2013 @ 6:51 pm   265

Great update. And as for the feedback for future games dead island is a great option for the ps3 and maybe resistance on the vita. Keep the great updates coming


My IGC ideas:
PS3 –
Demon Souls
Mass Effect
Split Second Velocity

PS Vita –
Dr Who the Eternity Clock
Plants vs Zombies
Sound Shapes
Uncharted Fight for Fortune

Please can we get some of these? ๐Ÿ˜€

supersmith2500 28 January, 2013 @ 7:06 pm   267

Dead Island for IGC? I don’t think so, that game has bad controls and there are glitches everywhere and the graphics on there are bad all over and even has texture popping after the game has loaded and I hated it. Sorry but I had to disagree with people with having Dead Island being on IGC. A discount would be fine though. My opinion.

WildRushSykes 28 January, 2013 @ 7:07 pm   268

Don’t care Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is out on the 1st that’s the only game i will care about for the foreseeable future ๐Ÿ™‚

ChilliOne 28 January, 2013 @ 7:12 pm   269

Recent subscriber to PS+, pleased with things so far.

Any chance of Kingdoms of Amalur the Reckoning for next update?

Other ideas

AC Revelations
Dead Island
Walking Dead Season Pass discount

This may have been answered before, but for the people who already have games, would it be possible to have say a choice of 3 or 4 main games and subscribers can download 2 of them. I know you can never please everyone. At end of day though, cant complain for the money.

digiboxdave 28 January, 2013 @ 7:17 pm   270

credit where credits due, a really good PS+ month. I still stand by my comments over the past few weeks, already have sleeping dogs but the rest are great especially the Vita titles!.

i think you hit the nail on the chris variety is whats been missing

Rowan146 28 January, 2013 @ 7:18 pm   271

Fantastic lineup this month. Will be playing all 3 of the February games especially Sleeping Dogs! F1 Race Stars is meant to be pretty good too according to Gametrailers.

Just started Cubixx which will tide me over until the 6th.

You guys have really outdone yourself, keep up the good work.

Thanks for taking a look into SSX. I too would like to see this game.
My other suggestion would be Syndicate.


Is gonna be available some avatares from Ni No Kuni/NiGHTS Into Dreams soon?

NabeelXD 28 January, 2013 @ 7:21 pm   273

The collection just keeps on getting better and better. Sleeping dogs was only released a short while ago! I have yet to play dead isalnd so wouldn’t mind it. However, if you want to mix it up again a (J)RPG would be great i.e. Valkyria Chronicles. ๐Ÿ˜€

Certinty 28 January, 2013 @ 7:30 pm   274

Would love to have Fifa, WRC 3, Smart As or MGS Collection on PS+ for the Vita.


“@Chris Howe

Honestly, Iโ€™m a bit shocked that you donโ€™t understand what is going wrong here.

Ross promised us 2 games every 4 weeks, not every 4 or 5 weeks depending on the length of the month. He granted us that we would receive 13*2 games, instead of 12*2 as in the USA, as a year has 52 weeks. And 52/4 is 13, not 12. Hell, he even did the calculation himself and till he left, it worked exactly that way as he had promised.

And now you turn up and tell us that it we donโ€™t receive 2 games every 4 weeks, as theyโ€™d come when they replace other titles, which might remain longer than 8 weeks in the IGC.

I seriously like what you offer via Plus this month, but I must also criticize such obvious failures. You canโ€™t claim that you are faithful to Rossโ€™ rotation, just because you seem to ignorant to such facts as the fixed 4/8 week rotation”


Answers please!

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:46 am    

    We promise to deliver you up to 65 games in a year across the different platforms as all our advetising shows. How this fits into the schedule can be determined by many factors some of which are out of our control but whatever happens we will deliver that amount so you are not going to miss out on any games.

    We also delivered you extra PS3 titles outside of the normal update in the form of Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground in December if you remember correctly.

Positronic_Brain 28 January, 2013 @ 7:45 pm   276

Great update. I might have to get a new memory card for my Vita. Thanks for all these great titles.

I second the request for more avatars – I miss when we would get some once a month. Zone of the Enders HD Collection, Playstation All Stars and, when the time comes, Bioshock Infinite avatars would be nice. And yes, Kingdoms of Amalur would be a great choice for a future title.

Un1eashedGR 28 January, 2013 @ 7:47 pm   277

Hey great update! Chris do you think we’re gonna get any HD collections (Jak and daxter, Sly, Ratchet and Clank,MGS)on PS+? That would be awesome! Or even a discount maybe? Also what about Kingdoms: of Amalur Reckoning? Should we expect it anytime soon?

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:42 am    

    I tried for Jak and Daxter but we were not able to finalise a deal but we are working on a Plus discount for it

Dark-Twisted 28 January, 2013 @ 7:51 pm   278

Best month ever! – I wanted Wipeout for so long, shocked about Sleeping Dogs which is another game I’ve wanted to play since release, first time hearing of F1 All Stars and after resesrch it looks like a really fun game to me, and a cheap 90 day sub discount that swings around just in time as the last one lapses.

One question- can we expect a Wipeout add-on discount? SCEE is publisher so it should be an easy yes/no, I imagine.


im new to playstation plus and i gotta said wish i joined earlier.

hoping new little king story or disgaea 3 gets added to ( or both ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Dark-Twisted 28 January, 2013 @ 7:54 pm   280

Also, anything from the LEGO series for Vita or PS3 is a great suggestion- it’d add to the diversity of IGC and I don’t think we’ve seen anything child friendly for a while.

OmegaDASH 28 January, 2013 @ 8:00 pm   281

This is an outrage!!! Why does NA get Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for free >:( I don’t get why they can’t just give all regions the same thing >:(


Having problems with Guardians of Middle Earth, the trial and unlock is only 6kb so go to game page to d/l it there and it’s still 6kb, anyone else have this problem.

Was going to buy F1 stars so glad it’s on plus


sweet love my ps + subscription and I love Sony !! always have always will. !!

WATARIGARASU_ 28 January, 2013 @ 8:07 pm   284

Hi,is Dead Space 3 getting digital release on PSN? (8th February).

Jestersoil 28 January, 2013 @ 8:10 pm   285

hey Chris, here’s a list of PS3 games, since you’re taking suggestions! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sly Trilogy (sly 4 is coming soon and it would be awesome)
Max Payne 3
Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3
Lego games
Dirt 3 (Complete)
Game Of Thrones
Binary Domain
Resident Evil Code Veronica
Might & Magic Clash Of Heroes
Black Knight Sword

Keep up the good work! i can’t wait for Sleeping Dogs ๐Ÿ˜€

Dark_Langin 28 January, 2013 @ 8:22 pm   286

Will Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for Vita be free for Europe at next ps plus update?(the one for March) It is free now for us c: or even better maybe dynadty warriors next? ;3


L_Alive_7 28 January, 2013 @ 8:31 pm   287

I <3 you Chris, Keep up the good work and dont let the quality of games you provide decrease ๐Ÿ™‚

I would like Dead Island! It looks interesting but never got around to buy it.


Great update. Nice work Chris.
Can’t wait to play Sleeping Dogs.

Dark_Langin 28 January, 2013 @ 8:53 pm   290

I have a few questions about ps plus ;3

1. IF my ps plus is over my games I downloaded for free are unplayable right?
2. If I resubscribe after a month of don’t having ps plus, will I have my content back?
3. Can I add 365 days now? so for example I have 3 months left, can I add another year this early?So I cannot forget this. ๐Ÿ˜‰

YoyoMcDingdong 28 January, 2013 @ 8:57 pm   291

Nice one Sony,cheers!

DRIVER121 28 January, 2013 @ 8:58 pm   292

Forgot to add this to my previous comment will oddwords munch odysee be released on the vita like strangers wrath

Is it possible to put on any of the Lego games as my son loves them and if you could put any uncharted games or the farcry’s 1 or 2 on there that will be a brill month for sony. But anyway a gr8 update as normal.

YoyoMcDingdong 28 January, 2013 @ 8:59 pm   294

Oh and any word on a Netflix app for the Vita?

supersmith2500 28 January, 2013 @ 9:01 pm   295

1. As long as you stay subbed with PS Plus they will be playable, if not subbed then they are not.

2. Yes.

3. Yes, If you add a year on top of 3 months, you’ll have 15 months.


hi chris,great ps+ update this month!

can i suggest for next months ps+ update the psn title high stakes on the vegas strip poker?
its a great title,but numbers are getting a bit low on mp now,(been out for a while now) adding it to plus would not only give mp a good boost but would add a little more variety that alot of plus users have been asking for..

thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚


yes, they wont delete themselves from our Hard Drive, but you wont be able to play them unless you subscribe or buy the game.
yes, all the content will remain in your history, so if you delete it, and come back in a year anything you added up untill then will be reusable when you get PS+ again. But you cant add content unless you have PS+ (so Say you get it next month, you cant add Bioshock now, and ply it when you eventually get PS+)
yup, pretty sure you can add as many days as you like whenever you like, dont think theres a limit?

Sidenotes, Chris, the Americans got 13 I believe fairly new games with pretty decent discounts, Im assuming we wont >_>?
to echo someone from earlier, Sly Trilogy or Ico/SOTC would be nice additions. Possibly Bayonetta?
I think White Knight Chronicals 2 and Two Worlds 2 are on the store, perhaps them?
Oh, or what about a few months of Free Realms complete package free (was somewhat decent on the PC untill they hard capped everything for free players) or some DCUO DLC? Som

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:39 am    

    No we are not doing the 13 for 13 sale anytime soon, we do sales that they don’t and vice versa. The two stores are individual.

OneManTagTeam 28 January, 2013 @ 9:10 pm   298

Will my game save from the disc version of Sleeping Dogs work with the digital version?

gooner4life 28 January, 2013 @ 9:12 pm   299

Superb month, PS+ is the best value in gaming and will be a big contributer to me getting the PS4 on release.

Well played Sony!


As a newer member to ps+ I am becoming increasingly impressed by the free content that is being put on the store-aswell as all the other goodies. I am however not very happy with the way games are distrubuted. I bought Sleeping Dogs just before Christmas and F1 All Stars in the sale. Would it not be possible to give greater notice of what is coming to the store? I like to keep my games collection as up to date as possible but if I keep missing out on the ps+ free games what’s the point of my membership? Would be great if there was a way that if I already had a game installed on my system (sleeping dogs for eg.)then I could get some free DLC instead. Dreaming I know. Still feel like i’ve lost a far bit of money this month. Just got PS Battle in the sale-That will be free next…


just been checking out the ps+ usa and being honest i think we’re getting a bum deal as they are recieving far better games/more up to date and also more regularly whatever happened to equality lol

Dono7526 28 January, 2013 @ 9:43 pm   302

To get Metal Gear Solid HD as March’s freebie would be genius if you can.A few quality games in 1 download and you are not having to us give another fps.
I would love to have an answer on TheMART’s (post #275) and others valid question.
You seem to dodge the awkward ones. As I said before,great job getting the plus nation sleeping dogs. Sweeeeet

brannie009 28 January, 2013 @ 9:52 pm   303

i saw you were talking about avatars and a mass avatar drop if possible, any chance on a few RDR avatars? btw any chance of resistance burning skies for the vita? and uncharted 1 and 2 for ps3?
thanks would be much appreciated

scott_meghan 28 January, 2013 @ 10:10 pm   304

What in the world would possess you to add games that were on sale very recently?
Sleeping Dogs was on sale in the 12 days of Christmas sale if I remember and F1 Race Stars in January

Whilst I am way in front by using the PS+ service I am seriously questioning purchasing any games that are a) on sale or b) not AAA titles that I wan ton day 1.
Why not just wait for it on PS+?

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:35 am    

    We get so many requests for items to go on sale that at some point things are going to over lap. As a rule we try not to do it but we can’t always guarantee it

m_willis94 28 January, 2013 @ 10:28 pm   305

Best month on PS Plus as for the first time I haven’t got any of these games but have wanted to play them.

MaxiM_82 28 January, 2013 @ 10:31 pm   306

I’m still pretty excited about PS+ Vita content (Wipeout mainly), but I just saw that Americans got Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus… I’m sad now ๐Ÿ™

Are there any plans for Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus coming to EU PS+ in near future? I don’t want to buy it just to find out it’s free 2 weeks later.

I have seen a few of requests for dead island, I hope you don’t listen to them because alot of my friends and I who have playstation plus have played through that game a couple of times already. Regarding the new line up for feb, I am very happy with what I’m getting thanks a lot. Could I request maybe far cry 3 for march? Too soon? ;D

CoolRichy008UK 28 January, 2013 @ 10:57 pm   308

ooh F1 superstars for free woooo ๐Ÿ˜€

as long as allllll our downloadable stuff will be on ps4 including trophies & we can use our ps3 login’s on ps4 me and other people will be happy if not the ps4 will just fail


Amazing month. It couldn’t be better. Sleeping Dogs is a game I always wanted to get but didn’t because of a combination of price and having so much else to play. I’ve always got waaaaaay too many games to make time for now thanks to plus. Wipeout is what I was expecting for Vita and it’s great we got that.

Could you just answer one question for me? Will you ever put PSP, PS1 or PS2 games in the IGC? There’s a lot of quality PSP, PS1 and PS2 games on the store I’d love for free. Getting these would make Plus even more perfect than it already is. Would you ever consider releasing these on plus? Please don’t ignore me. I can take a no if that’s the answer.

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:32 am    

    We don’t usually look at PS1 games but we may look at PS2 if they meet the quality bar that we set for the Plus service.

    We have found though that there is more call for VITA native games for that side of the service than PSP titles

AVFCTH0MAS 28 January, 2013 @ 11:51 pm   310

I would say what a good month to activate a months trial for PSN Plus and well think its a great service. Was wanting to check what the craze was all about with that F1 game and Sleeping Dogs looks epic and havent been able to try it.

I noticed you state the 30% off sale on the 3 months subscriptions would it be possible to buy 2 of those and get 6 months of plus?

    Chris Howe 29 January, 2013 @ 9:31 am    

    Yes you can buy as many as you want at the discounted rate as you can stack them so they automatically roll over


Sleeping Dogs, what!? This made my day! Just so you know, that’s almost my entire physical Vita collection now. If you give us LBP, then I will no longer have any need to keep my physical copies.

Amine-Tet1 29 January, 2013 @ 12:53 am   312

Great month guys, thank you
This is my wish list for next months:
Mass effect 1 & 2
Dragon age origins
GTA 4 or episodes
Final fantasy VII
Heavenly sword
Tokyo jungle
Walking dead
Okami HD

luckysalt81 29 January, 2013 @ 12:56 am   313

VERY happy with this months additions, I actually can’t wait to play all 5.

I REALLY hope Dead Island doesn’t come to IGC, for one, it sold A LOT, surely most people have this already and its avaliable everywhere for around ยฃ10 for GOTY.

Id love to added in the future

Plants V Zonbies
Heavy Rain
Tekken 6 or Tag
Sonic Generations
Sonic Racing [the first one or the new one, don’t mind]
Soul Calibur 6
Ridge Racer Unbounded/ Vita

bennoboster 29 January, 2013 @ 1:00 am   314

Hahaha of course this comes at the same time as my Sleeping Dogs is coming in the mail. Won’t hurt to give em some money but (: Great month though guys keep it up!

nMachine 29 January, 2013 @ 1:15 am   315

This is a brilliant update…Wipeout2048 for Vita and Sleeping Dogs for PS3. I can’t wait.

How about some Dragon Age stuff (the first or second one with DLC included or discounted at least?)for PS Plus soon considering the third instalment is coming out later this year. Speaking of Bioware, why not include some Mass Effect (include the first one for free with 2 and 3 along with dlc discounted? seems a win win!) stuff too ๐Ÿ™‚

Max Payne 3
Okami HD
Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection
GTAIV & Episodes (GTA V is coming soon after all)
Dead Island GOTY
Demons’s Souls or Dark Souls (with DS2 round the corner)
SSFIV Arcade

Witcher70 29 January, 2013 @ 1:38 am   316

Oh my god THANK YOU ! Sleeping Dogs and F1 Race Stars for me, I bought QC last week, but hey still smiling !

ocelot07 29 January, 2013 @ 1:52 am   317

Great update I have never played Sleeping Dogs. I read it is a little like GTA witch is always a good thing. F1 Race Stars I love kart games It didn’t do well in the reviews but it looks ok. Not sure what Quantum Conundrum but ill give it ago. Wipeout I all ready have due the the ยฃ5 top up offer. But I don’t have Lumines so its all good.

This is exactly why I bought plus. Not only do we gets lots of games. We get games that for me personally I would not of heard of and let it slip past me.

ElStefioNZ 29 January, 2013 @ 2:48 am   318

Wow, managed to read all the way through to comment #43 before I came across someone complaining – that must be some sort of PS Blog record.

spider777 29 January, 2013 @ 3:00 am   319

First I would like to say great update, I don’t have any of the games, and wouldn’t mind trying Sleeping Dogs.

Second I would just like to ask if there is any chance EU PS+ will get the spyro games (1, 2 & 3), US got the ages ago, and they are probably some of my favourite PS1 games

divebilly 29 January, 2013 @ 4:25 am   320

Tech question for you. May have already been answered before but just some clarification on DLC and save game compatability with various versions of a game.

If I trade in my physical copies of Lumines and WipeOut 2048 (or any other physical disk/card for any PS3 or Vita game) delete the original installation and then download the digital copy, will all of my save games and DLC for that title still work?

I ask as I bought my physical copy of Uncharted: Golden Abyss in Asia and the DLC map pack bought via my EU based SEN account and the DLC does not work for me and many others in that situation.

I agree that PS+ has paid for itself already many times over, even more so if I can trade in my physical copies. Now I just need to know when PS Vita will have memory cards bigger than 32GB so I have room for all of this free stuff they keep throwing at us. I don’t think I will have to buy a new game now for quite a while…

…OK, maybe AC3 and then Last of Us (if I find the time).

JayManGamer 29 January, 2013 @ 5:06 am   321

Aww man :\ My Vita is only about a month old but sadly I already have those two Vita games coming to PS + D’: At least everyone with PS+ will have a chance to play them ๐Ÿ˜€

XRA-6369 29 January, 2013 @ 7:00 am   322

what an update thank you Sony and people working on this content.
Thank you

JROD0823 29 January, 2013 @ 7:57 am   323

Does SCEE perform weekly human sacrifices to obtain such quality titles every month?

SCEA gave its Plus members nothing more than PSN titles AND MINIS for 6 months straight last year, while during the same timeframe SCEE was delivering full retail games, sometimes even two in a month!!!!

You guys need to have a chat with SCEA to let them know how to do Plus properly.

ChilliOne 29 January, 2013 @ 8:17 am   324

Would itr be possible to have I Am Alive on the next update, this looked interesting and bever got chance to play it

vvlahovic 29 January, 2013 @ 8:26 am   325

Is there a possibility to add same LEGO games in future updates of Instant Games Collection, like LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean or LEGO Batman?

MASPALOMAZ 29 January, 2013 @ 8:38 am   326

PS Plus 3 Months for 10โ‚ฌ again! Great, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ Also looking forward to Sleeping Dogs ๐Ÿ™‚ See @ Blog Team people can be happy with you ๐Ÿ™‚

croze343 29 January, 2013 @ 8:46 am   327

If you can Chris please respond.
Before i start i want to commend you guys for getting a great 2012 game sleeping dogs on here so damn fast.

However i find it strange that you would put a game on here that was a 12 days of christmas deal. I mean i bought this just over a month ago and now its free. Its not like i randomly bought it at a store you guys discounted and promoted it.

This is like the 2nd month in a row with no content for me as an Australian subscriber. Lego Batman 2008 PSP edition, Gotham City Impostors (Its free on PC) and now no main content this month :/

PanaSlayer 29 January, 2013 @ 9:34 am   328

I know this might not be the place to post this, but when I log in my account through the website, it tells me I have no trophies and also I can’t choose a ps+ banner for my gamerid card and it says I need to be PS Plus, while I already am.

Is there a problem with the website, or should I freak out?

Btw, great content for February, I’m super pleased for Sleeping Dogs alone. all the rest is super welcome icing on the cake. yay!!

BIasDmVp 29 January, 2013 @ 9:34 am   329

Got the PS Plus subscription at the end of Nov and I couldn’t be happier. All games released were awesome and now this ๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t wait for Sleeping Dogs. Thank you sirs – I will be subscribing for 1 full year at the end of this month.

dimikiller 29 January, 2013 @ 9:42 am   330

hi chris,

i would love to see dead island in the plus service!
i have played it for a few moments at a friends house, but havent got it myself. even though there are alot of people who have it, this would be the case for most every title you come up with. dead island would be AWESOME for peoplelike me who havent got it, and i would safely assume we are still in the majority in the plus service (if not on this forum, with more hardcore gamers).
hope to see it soon!

homerjnick 29 January, 2013 @ 9:54 am   331

Shocking! F1 Race Stars and Sleeping Dogs were in the 12 “deals” of Christmas only a month ago! How many PS+ gamers snapped up those deals only to find a month later they are getting them for free!

SCEE really need to come up with a system whereby this doesn’t happen, its plain deceptive and dishonest and is the reason why I have not bought a single game off the PS store since I joined PS+.

There must be laws against this?

N3M3S1S75 29 January, 2013 @ 10:15 am   332

three out of five, not bad. Thank you sony


I agree with you homerjnick.
I have bought Sleeping Dogs in 12 “deals” of Christmas. It is very unpleasant surprise that SCEE is giving it away for free as PS+ content. It shouldn’t be available for PS+ for example for next 6 months.

XboxDave360 29 January, 2013 @ 10:19 am   334

Amazing Feb content Chris!

But when the igc was first announced and advertised around July I think (that is before the Vita portion was added in November). It was marketed that it would include at least 45 games (ps3) now it is being advertised that the igc will have 65 games, 39 (ps3) and 26 (Vita). For those without a Vita it would appear to be a shortage of 6(ps3) games of what was originally advertised over the year of membership.

I am however, happy with the content as the igc stands now but can understand the frustrations of those PS3 only plus members.


“Ross promised us 2 games every 4 weeks, not every 4 or 5 weeks depending on the length of the month. He granted us that we would receive 13*2 games, instead of 12*2 as in the USA, as a year has 52 weeks. And 52/4 is 13, not 12. Hell, he even did the calculation himself and till he left, it worked exactly that way as he had promised. And now you turn up and tell us that it we donโ€™t receive 2 games every 4 weeks, as theyโ€™d come when they replace other titles, which might remain longer than 8 weeks in the IGC.โ€

“by Chris Howe

We also delivered you extra PS3 titles outside of the normal update in the form of Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground in December if you remember correctly”


First, this answer still doesn’t explain what Ross has promised. He was talking specific about the PSVita offering, not the PS3 one. A PSVita only owner could care less.

Second, I don’t care what extra PS3 titles SCEE gives outside the normal update, that is on SCEE’s account. It shouldn’t be of any influence how many PSVita games are given and with what frequency.

It would be pretty weird if PS3 would get 60 games (based on most users) and SCEE gives PSVita the remaining 5 suddenly.

If Ross gives a promise with exact number of games and timing for PSVita releases out of SCEE’s name, I expect it to be right and don’t like to be pointed back to ‘we’ve advertised 65 games for all platforms’. What will happen when PS4 launches and it gets content, even less for PSVita? PSVita users that got PS+ for just that device paid the full price for PS+ too. If Ross/a mod claimed a certain amount of games to be given to the platform, people count on it.

mman1235 29 January, 2013 @ 10:55 am   337

great month yet again ๐Ÿ™‚
I cant wait for sleeping dogs and quantum conundrum though not so much for F1 :/
it didn’t get any above average reviews and I already have MS:Apocalypse from PS+ if I want an amazing racing game ๐Ÿ™‚

I still hope you will add one month Max Payne 3 ,

a great racing game like: Split second/ Blur / modnation racer

and my biggest wish is that XCOM will eventually find its way on EU PS+ ๐Ÿ™‚


Last but not least, about the 4 week cycle instead of a month:

“Ross McGrath has detailed this monthโ€™s PlayStation Plus update for Europe over on the official blog.

Youโ€™ll have no doubt noticed that Europeans will get ten games as opposed to twelve over in the States. However, because SCEE will cycle the games more often (every 3 months rather than every 4) in effect weโ€™ll actually get more after a year.


“PlayStationยฎPlus Game of the Month
The Game of the Month will be changed every 4 weeks”

Thus the 4 week cycle is confirmed a couple of times. ‘How this fits in the schedule’ is a whole other approach.

Splutterbug 29 January, 2013 @ 11:33 am   339

Has to be the best month to date!


Hi Chris

The US store seems to get 12 month with an extra months value added in that package. Do we get the same in the EU?

RINKIN666 29 January, 2013 @ 11:45 am   341

many thanks for your great service x im def rejoining

Mattz4400 29 January, 2013 @ 11:48 am   342

Seems like a good month ๐Ÿ™‚
To be honest, I already do have and finished Sleeping Dogs on Xbox 360, and Quantum Conundrum on PC.
F1 looks kiddish… but maybe it’ll be fun.
I’ll be just waiting for the Vita games, Since I’m subbing PS Plus just for them… ๐Ÿ˜›

It would be nice to get ONE of these for vita, in March:
Assassins Creed Liberation,
Little Big Planet Vita,
Call of Duty Declassified,
NFS Most Wanted,
Ninja Gaiden Sigma,
Shinobido 2,
Unit 13.

You pick ๐Ÿ˜€

PS Store in our country DOESN’T HAVE movies at all…

CerberusSco 29 January, 2013 @ 11:50 am   343

In addition to the above will PlayStation Plus subscribers in EU between now and March 4th get 15 months for the price of 12 months, with a new 12 month PS Plus Subscription? Or is this just US Only? Thanks


What does the total in the year have to do with anything. The refresh pattern was laid out at the start and that’s what we signed up to. By you logic you could just give us 65 games one month and say your done for the year. You know as well as I do that is nonsense. You have moved the goal posts, either through ignorance or arrogance and really this should be rectified.

And when I say you I don’t necessarily me personally but SCEE as a whole.

chrisy21 29 January, 2013 @ 11:59 am   345

Another great month. Thanks.

Any chance of getting Fallout NV & DLC discount?

Some HD games discounts would be great. Devil May Cry, Jak & Daxter, Metal Gear Solid.

Ishan_The_King 29 January, 2013 @ 12:06 pm   346

Already have Sleeping Dogs, but those who don’t should really be excited as it is really an awesome game and will keep completion-ists busy for a solid 30-40 hrs. Very nice update, hope to see such new games being added to Plus in the near future. Sleeping Dogs is barely 6 months old.


Some great stuff there and no mistake. I don’t think I will be getting out much in February.

n0rmalgu3st 29 January, 2013 @ 12:30 pm   348

Hi Chris,

First of all, thank you for the offers, they’re great.

Though, I have a question about January content. Region Turkey didn’t get Mortal Kombat this month, instead we got Gotham City Imposters.
I wanted to ask why we got excluded. I asked this several times to Playstation support, no answer yet.


Chr15toff3e 29 January, 2013 @ 12:52 pm   349

First of all homerjnick, whatever you buy is then yours to keep. Playing the same game through PS+ is only temporary whilst subscribing to the service, but you probably know that already. If you don’t want to buy those games, wait to see if they appear on Plus, but there’s no guarantee that they will.

I do agree to some extent on what you’re saying though. Microsoft had deals throughout the holidays and notified customers what would be on sale beforehand. This gave you the option to wait for the offer to appear. I don’t see why Sony do it differently as people would most likely hesitate buying a certain game now. It would make it a lot easier for them to tell customers what will be available in the upcoming months like the way Sky Movies operate, but they like to surprise people. Sometimes people don’t like to be surprised, especially if it’s the game they just bought. So I can understand why you would be annoyed.


Awesome update since this is my first with ps+.

– bit of a shame that dead space wasn’t available with dead space 3 coming out. But oh we’ll

melantor 29 January, 2013 @ 1:00 pm   351

Hi Chris,
I asked the exact same thing to Playstation support as n0rmalgu3st did about Mortal Kombat for Turkey, didn’t get any answers though.
So I asked for help in Playstation forum, yet no luck.

Can you help for making it available in February?


mman1235 29 January, 2013 @ 1:04 pm   352


actually Dead Space 2 was in PS+ a few months ago as I recall ๐Ÿ˜›
hope you enjoy your PS+ subscription ๐Ÿ™‚ , its worth every penny ๐Ÿ˜€

specialalaa 29 January, 2013 @ 1:21 pm   353

This is by far the best PlayStation Plus content to me; I’ll get to enjoy Sleeping Dogs since my friend has been badgering me to get it because it’s awesome, I love Formula 1 racing and Mario Kart, so F1 Race Stars would definitely suit me; and I completely LOVE puzzles, so a game from a Portal creator is a great addition. I am genuinely happy, and I cannot wait for February 6th, especially since I’ve been away from gaming for quite some time now.

You would really make my day (rather, months) if you stick Journey as one of the PS+ games, I really want to play that game. It would be fun if it were added in March, to coincide with my birthday.

NickPreveza 29 January, 2013 @ 1:24 pm   354

Great , just great….already got sleeping dogs for pc , but i am very pleased with this month`s content . I am in ps+ since this September and this was the best month for sure… !

Mr_Pickle 29 January, 2013 @ 1:32 pm   355

Some great Plus content for Feb. Looking forward to sleeping dogs and WipeOut

Mr_Pickle 29 January, 2013 @ 1:36 pm   356


Re earlier comment regarding Dead Island, I’ll be happy for this title as haven’t played it yet.

RINKIN666 29 January, 2013 @ 1:48 pm   357

oh and how many times can u download a ps vita game coz someone said 5 and i will need to make space on memory card


Hi Chris,

Just a quick query – is there any chance of adding video content to to Plus subscription?
Maybe 1 or two rentals a week? This could then start to compliment the Netflix and Lovefile apps.



Great content for sure this month!

Dead Island would be great on plus!


MGS on the Vita would be great as well, just a suggestion. Or some discounts on those Piball Arcade DLC tables.


Lol. Love the way how when ps+ for vita first launched we were all like. Oh no America is much better than ours. Look they have wipeout why can’t we have wipeout. Now it’s like haha. America got foosball. Look what we got. Eff you America.

So childish.


alimik95 29 January, 2013 @ 3:57 pm   362

Thank’s guys great update ๐Ÿ˜€

PIREDERAS 29 January, 2013 @ 4:14 pm   363

@ Chris

Thank you Chris and the PS Store team for the goodies you keep on giving to PS Plus members! I bought Sleepng Dogs back in the 12 Christmas deals, but I can’t generally complain, since I have played awesome games like Dead Space 2, courtesy of PS Plus.

May I suggest some possible gifts for future IGC entries?

What about a good platformer? I know Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is currently available, but maybe one more (since we have been flooded with shooters of any kind and I got sick of them)? I don’t have something specific in my mind, since good platformers are rare nowadays

What I would really love to see, is a good JRPG (this generation is missing crazy, japanese games, like Okami, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus in the PS2 era). Maybe Final Fantasy XIII is a bit too much to ask, but there are other little gems. A Tales game? Or Star Ocean? Or even Valkyria Chronicles (which I can’t find at retail)?

AeonsDead 29 January, 2013 @ 4:21 pm   364

@358 The new rule is you’re allowed a piece of software on 2 currently active systems, i think that means you can delete and redownload as much as you want, so long as it’s only on the 2 systems.

tonyjames1978 29 January, 2013 @ 4:25 pm   365

I plan on only playing Sleeping Dogs plus playing F1 Racing Stars for the first time ๐Ÿ™‚

DoubleDriveX 29 January, 2013 @ 4:44 pm   366

I agree with PIREDERAS (post 364). There should be more rpg games in the IGC such as Final Fantasy, or Tales series, even Kingdom of Amalur sounds good as many other people kept posting about that game. Hopefully it will be considered ๐Ÿ™‚

TheFistsOfAnElk 29 January, 2013 @ 5:34 pm   367

I think Playstation Plus is great!

I would like to suggest a few games:
– Singularity
– Mass Effect 1
– Dishonored
– The Saboteur
– Burnout Paradise
– The Dragon Age games
– NHL 13 (not happening, I know)
– The walking dead
– Kingdoms of Amalur

I also want to state that Dead Island should not be on the Instant Game Collection. I played it for an hour but just could not take any more of it after that. I found it repetitive, glitchy and overall boring.

Anyways, thanks for PS+!

supersmith2500 29 January, 2013 @ 5:50 pm   368

Btw, would give me more time to beat Bioshock 2 since I already have Sleeping Dogs on disc. Oh and here’s my sugguestions which might be good for IGC:

– Journey
– Grand Theft Auto IV (with both Episodes)
– The Walking Dead
– Tokyo Jungle
– DIRT 3
– Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
– Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PSVita)
– MotorStorm RC
– Sonic Generations
– LittleBigPlanet Vita
– Rayman Origins (PSVita)

Also TheFistsOfAnElk, I agree with you Dead Island. I hated the game as well.

Ren_ecko 29 January, 2013 @ 5:59 pm   369

I forgot to ask in my last comment, can we expect DLC sales prices for Sleeping Dogs like past PS+ IGC games?

Landing Dragon’s Dogma for April(or even just a sale) would be cool with the Dark Arisen expansion coming out, I figure it would be beneficial for both PS+ and Capcom, I feel like a spoilt brat asking for games I’m interested in(just not enough to buy) to be put up for free ;p


New idea for you Chris. How about putting up a poll and depending on how much interest there is in a game (yeah you should likely pick them yourself, else you are going to have silly things, or super first day releases…but hey, that would certainly sell subscriptions ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and then you will know atleast the genre to aim for, if not give you a boost to try super hard to get a game? I mean have the pre-planned ones by all means, but think of this as a bonus?
Would certainly go to show SCEEs customer service isnt “completely” useless and that you are listening to feedback :X.

Blah blah legal, blah blah hard to do, blah blah not how its done. Aim for “Platinum” service (awesome reference to trophies is awesome >_>)

Ps-vita-gal 29 January, 2013 @ 6:28 pm   371

Hi Chris,
amazing group of games for vita and ps3. I almost bought sleepin dogs and f1 stars THX!
i here many peopke want dead island, well me and my friends wanted to get it but we always picked another game over it, so please consider Dead Isalnd.
list of possible games:
Dead Isalnd
amzin siperman
gta 4

RoninDennis 29 January, 2013 @ 6:32 pm   372

Cool update, glad I resisted getting Sleeping Dogs in the last sale!

IGC is also great to give some great, but overlooked games some exposure. Last night I finished ‘El Shaddai’, probably one of the most overlooked games last year. You can get it dirt cheap now, but it would be great if more could play that awesome game.

Skookie30 29 January, 2013 @ 6:58 pm   373

no one have answer how can you justify Our plus against SCEA plus, there to get a 3rd vita game january 29th ninja gaiden plus.

there had more the 1st day the vita plus was launch. one again Chris where the partially with SCEA?

bibster100 29 January, 2013 @ 7:07 pm   374

Awesome work yet again Sony , just one more thing ……. WALKING DEAD , get it in the sale !!

Terarded 29 January, 2013 @ 7:19 pm   375

Hey you said you were interested on feedback about dead island as a choice in an earlier comment. frankly id like to see it in there, ive never played it and it sounds fun. it wouldnt be my first choice but considering there hasnt been a game i dont already own all year id be happy for it ๐Ÿ™‚

just like to throw in a couple of game suggestions for future free games in hopes of it being considered:

littlebigplanet karting
prototype 2
mass effect 3 (or even 1 for that matter)
killzone 3
resistance 3
darksiders 2
the darkness 2

Terarded 29 January, 2013 @ 7:20 pm   376

oh and also
the walking dead
back to the future

GordonLea1 29 January, 2013 @ 7:44 pm   377

I currently only have a Vita, but I am a plus subscriber…. I really need to buy a new PS3 and a years sub as it’s running out (I had the 90 days one before). I also need a 32GB Card for Vita.

PS+ is going to cost me more than ยฃ30-ยฃ40 this year lol

remove_singstar 29 January, 2013 @ 7:49 pm   378

Saying PS+ promises to deliver over 60 games a year across the PS3 AND Vita is completely dishonest. I don’t have a Vita and looking at the sales only 4 people in the UK have bothered buying one. I’m not interested in it either. So can you be more honest in future and clearly state the number of games PS+ will deliver just for the PS3? It isn’t that difficult and your customers will appreciate honesty rather than being lied to.

Anathema29 29 January, 2013 @ 9:17 pm   379


9 weeks, that’s how long you gave your MOST loyal customers, your vanguard of support, before flipping them the bird.

Chris what a damn joke some of your responses are, especially:

“We are happy with the sales of those titles (SD & F1) โ€“ we just really like to please our Plus members”

What? By letting them know you’ve let them waste their money.

@56 @83 @85 @89 @166 @171 @223 @230 @231 @246 @328 @335 @364 (sorry if I missed a few) all bought Sleeping Dogs in December. (“It’s not like I randomly bought it at a store you guys discounted and promoted it.” @328)

Some of the gamers can afford this deceit on your part, others make sacrifices to support YOU, yet you don’t have the decency of letting them know that a game will be free in the near future.

I bought a R500 (South African) voucher to get Sleeping Dogs during 12 days, I could much rather have used that money elsewhere, like renewing my subscription.

A3rdcreation 29 January, 2013 @ 9:23 pm   380

Wow.this sounds.terrible last month was bad enough but this???

gray_scaled_sky 29 January, 2013 @ 10:35 pm   381

I am so glad to have PS Plus! What a great set of games!

Sp4rkyM4rk1337 29 January, 2013 @ 11:22 pm   382

In addition to the above will PlayStation Plus subscribers in EU between now and March 4th get 15 months for the price of 12 months, with a new 12 month PS Plus Subscription? Or is this just US Only? Thanks

We can technically get this buy purchasing and stacking five 90 day subscriptions at the discounted rate. Not only do we get the extra 3 months, but also a whopping 4p off. ๐Ÿ˜€

ChilliOne 30 January, 2013 @ 12:17 am   383

Regardless of whatever games are given out on PS+, some people will already have it, some people wont!

Lots of people people want a game eg Dead Island,Journey, and as many people wont want it and would prefer something else. I do agree with the idea of polls to see which games would be popular. Maybe then Sony picks a game and then one of the poll winners gets chosen as the other game (licensing/commercial agreements permitting)

Like some of the posts, Ive already played Sleeping Dogs but i say so what, there will be something for me next time or i’ll take a look at the other stuff. These seems to be a number of angry people and I say at the end of the day guys…we are only talking around ยฃ30 a year! Xbox live is more than that and you get much less for your money.

One thing I would say, I do think that it is reasonable that if someone has recently purchased a game over PSN download that becomes free under PS+ within say 2 months, then SCEE could offer some PSN credit as a good will gesture, maybe 30% of the value of the original download.

Stonesthrow 30 January, 2013 @ 12:18 am   384

As usual, I already own the ones I’m interested in :p

ChairyBoyArmy 30 January, 2013 @ 6:12 am   385

*_**_***ATTENTION PS+***_**_*

PS2 Classic “The Warriors” would be great its a classic game from a cult classic film. it would make my PS+ subs all worth it , maybe with a online tweek and i may explode , GO SONY


any word about wake up club for Australia?
great month for plus!

Robinworldwide 30 January, 2013 @ 11:42 am   387

@280/281 (Anathema29)

Luckily I don’t have to worry about the financial part of it, but as one of the people who bought Sleeping Dogs in the December sale I do feel your pain. It’s like Sony and Square Enix deliberately decided to get one last financial gain burst out of the game before putting it up for free. Since the game is relatively new I never would have guessed it would be in the PS+ IGC anytime soon and I actually thought I had the deal of the year (now I understand why it was such a good deal compared to the other Xmas sale offers). Same goes for the people who bought F1 Race Stars in the January sales. I’m not one to complain very quickly and I still think PS+ is very good value for money, but this really put a bad taste in my mouth. I decided to not buy anything on sale in the PSN store anymore because of this, so as you put it already: in the end it’s their loss, not ours!

sadlam79 30 January, 2013 @ 11:58 am   388

I bought Sleeping Dogs a couple of weeks ago on the XBox deal of the week. A also already have Wipeout for Vita. Them are the breaks.

Both are worth getting if you haven’t already.

Whilst I’d never buy F1 Race Stars, it certainly looks like it could be a bit of fun. Same with Lumines on the Vita.

MASPALOMAZ 30 January, 2013 @ 12:00 pm   389

@Blog Team

I just reloaded 10โ‚ฌ into my PSN account thru paypal (love how easy and nicely this works!!) in anticipation of buying PLUS again on feb 6. Now it would be totally amazing if it would enable people to also still download BIOSHOCK2. So to have the cheaper plus a bit earlier , but of course its not expected and I played the game anyways.

I truly think Sony is becoming better and better so I just wanted to say thanks! There is some nice value you are offering now , even compared to xbox or steam.


Hi, there’s a few PSP games I’d like to see added at some point (God of War : GoS and CoO) as well as Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines – I bought all these on PSP but the controls aren’t great… given the improvement the Vita has made to other PSP titles I bought digitally I would love to play these on the Vita but reluctant to buy them again.

I’d also like to see the current speed pack for NFS Most Wanted at a discounted price – that ยฃ8 is just too much for what you get IMO.

As for other games I’m eager to see added at some point include the God of War collections and DMC trilogy.

As a final note – if I upgrade my hard drive will I have to re-download all the games or can I copy them over (I have a 2GB external with 1GB formatted to FAT32 for PS3 usage etc that I can use to transfer data)?


Any plans for Demons Souls or Okami HD? Or maybe Dark Souls??? Well I have platinum on souls series, but the games are just too good so everyone has to get them for free on ps+ ๐Ÿ˜‰

If I do not renew my subscription for 1 year then I decide to renew can I still play all the old games I have gathered chris?


Also chris… I read that maybe there is coming big avatar pack, so can we get supercar avatars?

Crazyronnie4 30 January, 2013 @ 4:33 pm   393

I’d love it if you could bring out Dead Island free with playstation plus, my friends talk about it all of the time but i’ve never got round to buying it :/. Also, great February content, can’t wait to play Sleeping Dogs! ๐Ÿ˜€

WolvesAtTheGate7 30 January, 2013 @ 5:27 pm   394

AMAZING choices for ps3.. i was really hoping for Sleeping Dogs.. i wanted to buy it for a long time now!
And the racing multiplayer looks AWESOME.

good job guys and nice turn from the SHOOTING games this month.


Oh dear – all these negative people saying they bought games when they were discounted which are now free via PS+

Remember you pay ยฃ30/ยฃ40 a year and there’s over ยฃ200 worth of software for you to play during that time… you’re winning straight off… you may feel “robbed” but I have games I bought (like Crysis 2) just weeks before it became free (I still haven’t completed it) but I’m not complaining! It’s frustrating but (and here’s the difference) you can still play those games WITHOUT having to renew your plus subscription!!!

I have about 10 games I own physical copies of that I have got via plus and yes I have bought some games in store and on PSN only to have them become free a short while later… it’s the risk you take… maybe I should demand money back when a game I bought for ยฃ40 goes on offer for ยฃ20 a month or 2 after I bought it (the principle is the same)!?!

You win in the grand scheme of things – stop being so damn greedy!!!

Chr15toff3e 30 January, 2013 @ 7:12 pm   396

Some people would have an issue if they’ve just recently paid for a game that is now free to play on Plus, not long after buying it. I have physical copies of games that have been on there and I don’t have a problem with that, like yourself. But SCEE have only recently offered these games in the January Sale, so it’s a bit unfair on these people if they already have a Plus subscription. Surely the team must’ve planned what February’s content would include, and yet offered them anyway.

I think that a โ€œcoming soonโ€ post for plus would help sort this problem out. If it shows what would be available in the next three months, customers could then buy other games that aren’t going to be part of the subscription. It wouldn’t have to show in what order they receive them, but it would just give them an idea on what to buy and what to avoid. I don’t know why something like this isn’t already in place. Personally, I think the service is great, but it could be organised better for people who regularly buy games from the store.

Robinworldwide 30 January, 2013 @ 7:54 pm   397

@397 Kryss2K

Seriously, you think this is about greed? Way to look at it in a narrow minded way. The issue is not about us having the game already. I own probably more than 50% of the games we get on plus, but i’m still loving the service. You seem to overlook an important distinction though. If i would have bought Sleeping Dogs a month ago on disc in the store i would keep my mouth shut. The thing is that when they put up Sleeping Dogs and F1 Race Stars for a special sale, they already knew that it was going to be part of plus, but they gladly took our (extra) money without hesitation anyway. I don’t mind paying for stuff whatsoever but this is now more like an (unwillingly) donation. If someone sells you something while they know you can have it for free in just a little while, would you not feel ripped off? Do you think any of us would have bought the game if we knew it’d be free in a month? You really don’t see anything wrong with that? You really think the greed is on our ends? If you do you must be the biggest fanboy i’ve ever seen.

JammieDodgerz 30 January, 2013 @ 8:19 pm   398

Yeah, Dead Island would be pretty good to have on PS+

Even though I have already completed that game I still need to get the Platinum on it.

Anyways, my suggestions are The Darkness II, Dirt: Showdown & for PS Vita maybe Resistance: Burning Skies?

๐Ÿ˜‰ Hoping lol.


So during the 12 days of Christmas you offer sleeping dogs for $22 au for plus members (which I of course bought) and then a month later you give it away so it’s money wasted for your plus members that actually spend more money. This has happened too many times and I will not be renewing my plus membership this year that’s for sure.

Andrew_7Up 30 January, 2013 @ 8:58 pm   400

you know, I would love getting DmC4 or DmC HD Collection in march, on ps+ igc, considering DmC’s launch this month. Just saying. it would be great. And also SPEC ops: the line. It seems like a great game, and it’s underrated

Terarded 31 January, 2013 @ 2:55 am   401

can we PLEASE have borderlands 2 for ps plus in march? it would be perfect and it would also make a money benefit because it wont be to long before a game of the year edition comes out with all the dlc so giving us borderlands 2 will inspire people to buy the dlc rather then wait for the goty!(i dont own it because im waiting for goty, but if i were given it for psplus id have no choice but to buy the dlc)


@Robinsworldwide It’s most likely a case that neither section talked to the other about what was going on offer – there’s so many companies where the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing!

You still have the option to view it pessimistically or optimistically – you can view it as you got ripped off as it’s now free or you can view it as you still made a saving as you 100% own the game rather than “renting it” via PS+ (as that’s basically what is happening).

I do understand people’s frustration but these kinds of things happen so often that I’m surprised it’s caused such a fuss… It’s the same risk anyone takes when buying ANYTHING – what you buy today could go on offer tomorrow… You’re assuming that whoever did the sale knew it was going to be on Plus not long after – it’s entirely possible they weren’t aware of it when they put it on sale – that’s all I’m saying (that and you do get a good deal over-all via PS+ ) so maybe you could look on the bright side? ๐Ÿ™‚

However if they did know it was going to be on PS+ – “Bad Sony/PSN” XD

Robinworldwide 31 January, 2013 @ 1:43 pm   403


Yea if you buy something chances are it’s going to be on sale the next day. Do i pay that particular retailer a subscription fee where i get monthly stuff for free though: NO! Clearly you can see how that makes a huge difference.

Both offers were amazing in comparison to other retail titles. In the case of F1 you could say it’s because the game didn’t do well, but Sleeping Dogs did very decent. Coincedence? The answer of SCEE in this thread is not that they didn’t know it was going to be on PS+, the answer is that they try to avoid these situations as much as possible. So they actually admit that it’s not a good thing…they just refuse to take measures so it can’t happen to PS+ members again.

The fact that i admittedly do get a lot of value for money doesn’t justify any malversations on Sony’s behave. The money is not the issue to me whatsoever, it’s about the principle. I’m not bitter, i’m not negative towards PS+ as a whole, i do still love PS+, i just think it should be said when people are being treated unfair.

You probably still won’t agree with me, but you seem like a nice guy and i’m not looking to argue here so let’s just agree to disagree.


Wow, this is the first month where I already own the “top title”. Oh well – I will just get rid of my disc version and DL it again on feb 6th. Any chance of getting one of the HD remakes/collections in March? ICO/SoTC, Silent Hill, Splinter Cell, MGS, RE4 or Okami please? Oh, and RDR: Undead Nightmare, please.

martintr81 31 January, 2013 @ 2:16 pm   405

nice games, seems will be a good month, we also look forward plus sales discount however we are not sure we will succeed to purchase subscription bcs we live problems while purchasing for a couple of weeks ๐Ÿ™

Cloud-ruler- 31 January, 2013 @ 5:04 pm   406

Fantastic releases on plus for February.

As for Dead Island as a suggestion for Plus in future, please no. I’m sure most people that were interested have played it by now particularly with the GOTY edition being quite cheap and its not a classic or part of a notable series. I only purchased my PS3 in September and even I have played it.


Hitman: Absolution
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Borderlands 2
Darksiders 2
Dragon’s Dogma

Dark Souls, Yakuza 4 an God of War 3 are probably the only ones pre-2012 that I’d suggest because they’re both part of notable game series and have another game in each of their series coming.

Hmmm…Uncharted 3 or The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim would be nice, both being part of notable series again so I can overlook the pre-2012 for those two too.

AnthonyMills1995 31 January, 2013 @ 7:44 pm   407

There’s me, about to go onto Amazon and buy Sleeping Dogs, thought I’d check the blog first… And good thing I did!

vision1970 1 February, 2013 @ 9:27 pm   408

Some help please,

I have a problem with two of the games i downloaded(recently plus member). These are bioshock and vanquish, i cannot play them. I can skip the intro but when i get at the start screen no button is responding to start nor to navigate through the options.

Any suggestions?

GALLAGHER2010 1 February, 2013 @ 11:17 pm   411

how about heavy rain nd Marine a decent discount to San andreas please

Calamonity 2 February, 2013 @ 1:07 am   412

Not a great month for me. Already have Sleeping Dogs (great game though, so I’m happy for other PS+ members) and this has happened a few times for me. Last time was Mortal Kombat. I wish there was some sort of other reward for people who already have the games that are offered, or perhaps the ability to choose between a few selected titles, like that time that PSN was hacked?

I’d also like more RPGs available on PS+ since I don’t remember seeing any. Ni No Kuni would be awesome but I doubt that you’d give us that since it’s so new. Still, if you’re feeling generous… =D

As for the Vita, I’d love to try out New Little King’s Story but it’s still pretty expensive. Hopefully it’ll be an option in the future though?

Either way, please think of your RPG fans. I’ve had a few first person shooters which I’ll never play because I don’t like the genre but I’d love more RPGs. Course, I have a lot of those already but it’d be nice to see some on PS+.


hmm…was thinking, how about the MGS HD remakes and 4? Given that it got trophies recently, and that what people are thinking is 5 “Phantom Pain” is out…next year I think? be interesting to get the series and see if its worth the hype (4’s demo was very meh, and given how cheap they all are anyway? might aswell + it :o)
or perhaps Resi 6/ Racoon City? Mainly due to interest as to hw bad they actually are o_O (If Sonic 06 or any of the ones before Colours were on the store Id suggest them too :p. Adventure 2 might be decent for people that never got it years ago, sucks theres no online Chao training/battling however >_>)

Mattz4400 2 February, 2013 @ 10:44 am   414

Will Poland ever see Movie Store on PSN?
There is just an empty space… ๐Ÿ˜

If that’s not gonna change, I’m either way going abroad so… is it possible to change your account region? ๐Ÿ™‚

Player_550 2 February, 2013 @ 4:48 pm   415

Will i be able to download BioShock 2 after 6 of February? despite i have purchased it and it is on my download list?

alimohammed 3 February, 2013 @ 1:50 am   416

cant wait for 4 of those games. already have wipeout.

dorkgeniuz21 3 February, 2013 @ 7:07 am   417

Oh hellz yeaz..I have been waiting to find the right time to join playstation plus, as well as try out sleeping dogs. I would love me some Ratchet & Clank FFA Vita though so hopefully it does come out this month. Question? Can you pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese somehow suggest to Sony that they should add Remote-play & cross-controller to both Full Frontal Assault & R&C collections. Sly Cooper Collection and infamous would also be nice with these features. Sony has put ps-move in things but not given the Vita much Cross-controller remote-play love and we want more.

zebarcelosUK 3 February, 2013 @ 11:32 am   418

Is Portugal going to get this games?

Ambervox 3 February, 2013 @ 1:40 pm   419


Looking forward to getting these games, a good selection.

I would love to see L.A Noire on Play station Plus soon.

I have always thought it would be a great idea to have a poll on the blog with possible games for the community. We could pick from a selection of games that are suitable for plus.

Technikore 3 February, 2013 @ 4:53 pm   420

Hi Chris,

I see your post a bit further down the page about avatars that we want. I think it would be great if we could buy the trophy pictures as avatars. Bronze, Gold, Silver, Platinum.

Hopefully these will be implemented ๐Ÿ™‚

What a awsome update, I do like free exclusive avatars? I want a sniper elite v2 avatar but I don’t think it will hqppen (Can’t buy the guns/Dlc/online pass on it anymore) Why removed?


doubt Chris is still reading, let alone replying to these, but yeah LA Noir seems decent (heard it was somewhat repetitive later on) or Heavy Rain. Is it you contacting them or them contacting you and offering to put thigs up on the store? as it seems to generally be things that the sequal is coming out ina few months anyway and they want hype. In which case is it even worth us suggesting?
On a sidenote, new avatars and themes would be nice (as would removing Singspam , leave it for the non +ers ;P) as would the ability to vote on them, perhaps do a trial run with avatars, and then when its fixed (Scee has a bad track record x_X) use that to atleast get suggestions for games, and how many peope want at the very least a genre, if not a specific game (which could be your choice or let people go mental and pick their own and vote up five and vote down five, then try and get the top 3-5 rated games for a future month)

Amine-Tet1 4 February, 2013 @ 1:01 pm   423

Can we get one of these games for march please:
-episodes of Liberty city
-Heavy Rain
-dragon age origin
-Mass effect 1
-far cry 2
-Tokyo jungle


Stonesthrow 4 February, 2013 @ 5:48 pm   424

Nothing that I’m interested in besides Sleeping dogs and Wipeout, which I already have.. I got plus just for the Ni no kuni theme though :p

Some personal suggestions : SSX, NBA2K13, Darksiders 2, Sorcery, Driver SF maybe? Castlevania : Harmony of despair, Walking dead and Back to the future series, .. The store is acting up again so that’s all I’m gonna search for now :p Oh and Street fighter X Tekken for Vita would be nice too :p

JTenebrous 4 February, 2013 @ 6:57 pm   425

Excellent EU lineup this month, thanks! Been looking forward to trying all of these PS3 games, and nearly pulled the trigger on picking up Sleeping Dogs for my PC on Steam the other day, so I’m glad I waited… it’s the sort of game I’d rather play on the big telly anyhow. Cheers ~J

haohmaru1981 4 February, 2013 @ 8:21 pm   426

Great !!!!

daxterstarsriba 4 February, 2013 @ 9:03 pm   427

Are you ever going to update the exclusive avatars for PS+? IGC is great but there are other features to PS+, yet none of them seem to be getting updated.


Nice one! Now I have more games than I know what to do with! I doubt I’ll be buying anything until GTA5 comes out in September.

fidelisbenza 5 February, 2013 @ 6:28 pm   429

what time will sleeping dogs be available cant wait for it

connorblue14 5 February, 2013 @ 9:24 pm   430

2) can you put uncharted 3 on ps plus
3) can you put fifa street (new one) on ps plus
4) can you put tekken tag on ps plus
5) can you put mass effect 3 on ps plus
6) what time tommorow is slipping dogs in store on ps plus

AeonsDead 5 February, 2013 @ 9:46 pm   431

Can we get more discounts for plus members? I mean discounts exclusively for plus members, not just an additional 10% (which usually means 80 pence off).

You say it is difficult to negotiate discounts with publishers/developers… how difficult was it to negotiate such long discounts on Halfminutehero, Innocent life, Harvest moon, Valhalla Knights 1 and 2, Blazing souls accelate, Arc the lad? They seem to have been on discount forever.

triplejmzu8 6 February, 2013 @ 1:04 am   432

I’m really happy about this month, sounds pretty cool. ^-^
I hope, there’ll be a game, like Uncharted 2/3, Killzone 2/3, Resistance 2/3 or Disgaea 3/4 in the next months.

MfG, ~Ju.

Donline- 6 February, 2013 @ 4:14 am   433

cant wait to play Sleeping Dogs… Kudos PSPlus..
if your still feeling generous, make Operation Racoon City March
or force people to play Nier… games epic

hi there, can anyone tell me what time the games usually go up for download? wanted to get sleeping dogs going before leaving for work but seeing as that didnt work this will just be for future reference.

    Fred Dutton 6 February, 2013 @ 9:42 am    

    They go live with the Store update at 3.00pm GMT – that’s in about 5 hours time.

bbjjrrplay14 6 February, 2013 @ 11:29 am   437

A lot more varied than usual which is great. I feel the past few months fave all been shooters and sci-fi games *sighs*
So here’s my wish list for next month ๐Ÿ˜›

LittleBigPlanet Karting (PS3)
Angry Birds (PS3)
The Cube (PS3)
Sonic the Hedgehog (PSN)
Lemmings (PSN)
Lego Harry Potter (PS VITA)

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
And thanks again for an amazing month !!!

bbjjrrplay14 6 February, 2013 @ 12:18 pm   440

Hi chris
LOVE the update btw!!
I’ve looked all over the web and I can’t find it so can you help me? What games have been on PS+ IGC UK since the collection started last year. I’d be so so so so grateful if you could let me know so that I can buy the games that have been on there in the past without the danger of them coming up soon ๐Ÿ˜›

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚


@jay_mz Yeah man, I’ve stopped buying stuff on the store especially for Vita and held back on a lot of retail games (Sleeping Dogs being one of them, not that I game that much these days) unless it’s something I /really/ want.

I would say you’d be better holding back on impulse buys and keep the plus sub going. It’s a bit of a gamble either way though.

I don’t have many nice things to say about Sony – SCEE especially – these days, but one of them is that plus (for the games, not the other crap) is heaps of value for money.

BATTENBERG91 6 February, 2013 @ 1:27 pm   442

I know loads of people have suggested this already but what about Shadow of the Colossus and Ico?

newportdragon 6 February, 2013 @ 1:30 pm   443

Sleeping dogs is downloading but my kids wanted F1 stars and its saying only 1.1GB download and I selected full game is that right. ,??

dark_angel69 6 February, 2013 @ 1:43 pm   444

You sure it goes live at 3pm? I’ve been downloading it since 1pm and it’s at 24%. Such bad internet. ๐Ÿ™ It seems to be 2 hours early now. Unless you mean should be available for everyone by 3pm

windsorblue01 6 February, 2013 @ 1:50 pm   445

@dark_angel69 you will find they star adding new stuff from about 11am on a wednesday to update but for all the stuff it takes a while and dont finnish putting them in there right places to about 3pm

lucaseuropa22 6 February, 2013 @ 2:09 pm   446

Very nice this games of february, thank’s!!

MaTiG-DE 6 February, 2013 @ 2:15 pm   447

Ok but why i don’t see sleeping dogs in the German PSstore ??

On the first page of the PlayStation Store (German) we still have a poster of sleeping dogs. I a specially buy ps + on this occasion, and what now? NO sleeping dogs, the money spent, I request a refund for cheating the customer.

triplejmzu8 6 February, 2013 @ 2:33 pm   448

I’m from Germany and I’m not able to download “Sleeping Dogs” yet.
It’s not even in the Store.

humansrights 6 February, 2013 @ 7:31 pm   449

I feel like i’ve have been cheated. I bought PlaystationPlus like 2 days ago for around 20 dollars or (115 kr.) and now it is on sale 30% off. Why is the advertising so late, so that i pay “too much” instead of buying the “new-customer-discount” or whatever you could call it.
I hope that in the future there will be announcements earlier!


The number of times I’ve done that.just chalk it up to experience and remember it the next time a must buy game appears.Just ask yourself,can I live without it for six months?

bestheelever 6 February, 2013 @ 8:58 pm   451

I know we have got discounts on some of the Sleeping Dogs DLC qhich I already have but will the following be discounted in the next 2 weeks –

The Monkey King Pack
The Move Masters Pack
Zodiac Tournament Pack?

Any information on these will be appreciated.

bestheelever 6 February, 2013 @ 9:08 pm   452

Edit to above –

*Movie Masters Pack

Tor-star123 7 February, 2013 @ 12:53 am   453

Sleeping dogs!!!

JamieIII 7 February, 2013 @ 2:00 am   454

@451 The discount is mentioned in this post, saying that it’s going live on 6th Feb. This was posted on 28th January, so they gave 10 days notice.

DeathKiller49 7 February, 2013 @ 5:53 am   455

Wow, everyone in EU is so lucky. Sleeping Dogs, F1 Racing, and awesome Vita content as well. Me and everyone else in US got Foosball and Guardians Of Middle Earth…

domdenger 7 February, 2013 @ 6:05 am   456

Dear Chris Howe, I have two questions:

1. Where is the sleeping dogs game? I don’t see it on the German store ๐Ÿ™

2. I bought the 90 days subscription (since it’s on a promo) but when I check my ps+ games it still says that I have only 21 days left. It this normal? Does the new subscription start after the current one expires?

Thanks for replying

domdenger 7 February, 2013 @ 8:22 am   457

Just read on the store update that:

“Following the recent announcement that Sleeping Dogs will be available to PlayStation Plus members this month, the title will not be available to German consumers. Unfortunately we cannot confirm at this time what additional content will be available to German Plus members, however we are working on a solution and look forward to updating you soon. We apologise for any disappointment and appreciate your patience while we resolve this matter. ”

WHY??? what happened? I renewed my plus account yesterday just for so that I can have enough time to play this game. Did I just spend my money for nothing? I could have created a different account from a different region if it was announced properly. Geeez is this how you treat your customers?

XclanOrigin 7 February, 2013 @ 10:25 am   458

Chris, I don’t usually actually ask to see a game on psn plus, I’ve been on it for years and love it but I really want to request to see a game on it…I beg of you, could make it so that skullgirls is on it? I really love that game and think it deserves more attention, so once again, please, have skullgirls be on psn plus.

Nightmareofkaito 7 February, 2013 @ 3:25 pm   459

so we got a great action game, a couple of racers one ok and the other a fantastic kart racer that was 1,000,0000,000 times better and more fun than sega and sonic allstars transformed which I wasted ยฃ25 :(, a good music game and an arcade title that I’ve yet to play. This is why I pay my ยฃ40 a year for stuff like this :). Thank you sony, I’m really greatfull I find your plus service fantastic please keep up the good games. by the way sleeping dogs and f1 race stars are awesome.

chrisboers 8 February, 2013 @ 11:43 am   460

DARN! I was planning to play Borderlands 2 this month, but now I started up Sleeping Dogs, and absolutely love it. Thank you SCEE for ruining my NewYear’s resolution ๐Ÿ™‚
Sleepign Dogs is absolutely the best of the bunch of this month (although the rest is pretty great also!)
Best PS Plus month since launch!



sleeping dogs is a fantastic game and i had already listed it as my goty for last year.

pick up the dlc its good fun

man_utd_xl 9 February, 2013 @ 10:55 pm   462

great update, been thinking about getting sleeping dogs for a while, plus is amazing value for money, just a suggestion with the new god of war coming out soon god of war 3 would be a great game to put up, would also give those who never played the game a chance to try it and possibly increase ascensions sales

Damn, it’s so mean to read how everyone else enjoys Sleeping Dogs. I wonder if we’ll see any similar feedback about the german replacement?

Can anyone imagine: “Oh yes! I stopped playing Far Cry 3 and Ni No Kuni since Sony gave us Elevator Action Deluxe! I love every second!” ๐Ÿ˜€


I would like to know why the EU plus members get so much better games than we do in NA. You guys get Sleeping Dogs and F1 Race Stars and we get Guardians of Middle Earth. It’s been like this for months and I would just like a legitimate answer from a Sony employee because when I ask on the US blog I obviously get no legitimate answer.
The only responses are complaints towards me from fanboys or an employee tell me they try their best to get the best available games or that great games and deals are coming soon. I’ve heard this for nearly a year and I’m still waiting. Past few months have stung especially hard especially this month with EU getting an amazing game like Sleeping Dogs which still sells for over $50 here while we get a $15 psn game which is loaded with dlc.


They make savings by hiring monkies for customer service staff.
We got GOME last month, it never even worked for me


Also, I can’t even tell you how many times a US employee post about a game coming for free and then hours later they are like oops, that is only going to be free for EU plus members and full price for US members, but it will still be available on the same day.

chrisboers 11 February, 2013 @ 11:34 am   467

@Skyyplum: we got Guardians before already. But in general, we have a better PS Plus service indeed! (Then again, most games release earlier in the US, so that counters that).
Each service (SCEA and SCEE) has its own positives and negatives, and should be judged on its own merits. The two are simply not comparable enough. (but I’m very happy with my SCEE PS Plus ๐Ÿ™‚ )

I don’t really believe you that a SCEA would falsely announce EE Plus content for NA. The “worst” case that I witnessed is that they used SCEE informational material when they announced the new store, which advertised SCEE Plus content. That cause some confusion, but nothing more.

Besides, the USA has plenty of advantages:
* The games are generally far cheaper
* You have a far greater selection, especially regarding classic titles. You have no idea how much I begged for Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross already.
* You get games earlier than us
* Your sales and discounts are far far better than ours. Combine that with your already cheaper standard prices and it’s really hilarious.
* Your IGC is bigger than ours.
* You get a lot more additional content besides games. We don’t even receive Avatars anymore. Or compare our test section with yours.

So you found one single area where we do better than SCEA? I’m so sorry for you! ๐Ÿ˜‰
But seriously, I can’t remember that anyone in the USA would have ever cared about our disadvantages before the IGC got introduced. So don’t expect me to shed too many tears. ๐Ÿ˜›

RazorBlade446 11 February, 2013 @ 6:22 pm   469

I’m so dissapointed the US PSN doesnt gave us SleepingDogs… but i’m not willig to have two Plus memberships…

Skyyplum 11 February, 2013 @ 6:38 pm   470

@Golwar, you don’t believe me? Check out the US blog. The most recent time they told us we were getting a free game that was only to be free for EU members was Big Sky Infinity and trust me, that wasn’t the first time they’ve done this. EU members frequently want to think we have it better but we don’t. The deals are usually not that good and the free games are a joke compared to what EU members get. If we get a retail game it’s usually 3-5 years old not just a few months old. When you guys get games like Batman AC we get Bioshock 2 which can be bought for under $10 in most stores here. I’m not gonna list every similar deal but it happens way too often and this month is just the latest. Nothing is fair about EU members getting Sleeping Dogs and F1 Race Stars when we get GOME.

supersmith2500 11 February, 2013 @ 6:53 pm   471

And you got RCR for free in which we won’t get for free acording to the dev. I mean here’s the math. EU gets far better games on IGC but get’s poor sales and treatment at the same time like for example, no replies, getting that Motorstorm RC for free for Q-Force buyers while you guys got Deadlocked we’ve been complaining about and of course games being released 3 months later which kinda annoyed me. While for US however gets great deals, games before Europe months or even years later but poor selection of Plus games. Well we did had a couple of poor games for the collection as well like that Chronovolt game was rushed for Plus which is a bad move. (TBC)

supersmith2500 11 February, 2013 @ 7:00 pm   472

I mean get this, we complain about getting Motorstorm RC for free as an apology for Q-Force while you got Deadlocked HD for free while you guys complained about the US getting poors games for your IGC while Europe gets great games for their IGC. I don’t know.

Skyyplum 11 February, 2013 @ 8:12 pm   473

Smith, you don’t understand why US members like myself get upset because your getting top notch retail games while we get old retail games or PSN games that aren’t selling well? Trust me, the deals we get aren’t that great. Holidays last year was a perfect example. They tried acting like EA sports titles at 40 and 50 dollars was a great deal. And none of the games you mentioned are that big here. Morgan has told US members that they are currently working to bring full retail games to US members like EU is getting but until it happens I won’t believe it.

Oh please, don’t exaggerate. We got Bioshock 2 too, so what? You on the hand got the brand new Ninja Gaiden on the Vita and we didn’t. So please don’t act as if actually everything would be bad for you and so much better for us.

Yes, in general our PS Plus content is better than yours. But in general all points that I previously listed are also valid, where the US fares far better.
And sorry, if you claim that for example your 13 games for 75% off deals recently wasn’t much better than our deals, then I can’t take you serious.

But hey, if you really want – why don’t you pay as much for games as we do? 1โ‚ฌ=$1, while the currency relation is around 1.34? So that’s 34% more already. Next you get up to 75% discounts, while the UK gets 50-60% and the rest of Europe usually even less (mostly 7-25% worse than the UK).

So a simple scenario, we have game A that sells for $20 and 20โ‚ฌ. You’d get a sale for $5. We, if we are even lucky enough to see a sale on that game, would probably pay 9-12โ‚ฌ. That’s up to $16. Yep, we have to pay 3x what you pay.

So if Morgan should fix it and offer you better content, you’ll have the best part of everything.
We on the other hand won’t see a change to the better. Ever.
So once more, sorry … but you obviously don’t appreciate enough all the advantages that you guys have.

Firefly1005 12 February, 2013 @ 11:35 pm   476

I would love to see the Likes of Metal Gear Solid 4 and With the release of Alien Colonial Marines it would be great to see AVP up there.

As for PSvita the 2 i want to see the most are Sonic Racing Transformed and Resistance. The only downside is i have to buy the online Codes
