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.

So GAF was right in it’s leak….

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

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.

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

5

Nice! Keep it up!

Best ps+ month ever.

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.

8.1

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

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!

10

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

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!

11.1

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 :)

PARAN0ID_PANDA3 28 January, 2013 @ 13:07
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

12.1

We are happy with the sales of those titles – we just really like to please our Plus members :)

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

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 @ 13:07
16

Just a couple of suggestions for the next few months as i know you usually take notice :)

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

:)

16.1

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

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.

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 :)

Really Really Nice update…

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

20.1

Australia and Germany will both get Sleeping Dogs

21

Amazing update love PS+

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?

22.1

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

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.

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?

26.1

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. :D

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

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

30.1

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

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. :P

34.1

haha yeah they did spoil it a little but nevermind :)

35

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

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+

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 ;)

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 :)

Good update :)

SiborgSimoSctlnd 28 January, 2013 @ 13:14
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 @ 13:15
42

WOW!
PS+ is the best service

thank u Sony :)

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….

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.

44.1

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?

45.1

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

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!

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 myself… very nice addition that.

Was literally discussing Wipeout today and was saying how tempted I was to get it! So looking forward to that…

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 https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AmRRDLosxQLIdGJmcVJudmxhSzhsb1hkX19ZRWMxS0E#gid=0

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 @ 13:17
51

Awesome month guys! Really look forward to trying out Sleeping Dogs, Quantum Conundrum and WipEout 2048 :D

I’ll of course try out the other titles as well. Great job ;-)

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…..best 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

52.1

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 :)

windsorblue01 28 January, 2013 @ 13:19
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.

54.1

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

I LOVE YOU SONY!!

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 :)

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 @ 13:22

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 @ 13:23
62

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

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?

63.1

Sleeping Dogs will be available for Germany

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

64.1

As above we will be able to make Sleeping Dogs available for Germany now

ShadowhunterrX 28 January, 2013 @ 13:23
65

Thx for the games Sony :D

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 £20-30.

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.

67.1

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 :)

68

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

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.

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

HELLO PLAYSTATION, WHY DO WE STILL GET CRAP WITH PS PLUS AND NOT LIKE AMERICA DOES…????

IM NOT PAYING TO GET ALL THE GAMES I ALREADY HAVE…?

BUT STILL WHY DOES AMERICA GETS ENVERY WEEK NEW STUFF AND WHY NOT US AND DON’T COME TALKING TO ME ABOUT THE LAWS. THAT IS .. u KNOW WAT.

SO ALL IM ASKING IS PLEASE GIVE US MORE VALUE OF ARE PLUS SUBS.

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 @ 13:32
75

Impressive update, Chris!

Keep up the good job, team. We appreciate your efforts trying to get us different kind of games :)

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?

76.1

We will look at updating these in the summer June / July

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.

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?

78.1

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 .

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

81

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

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.

82.1

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.

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.

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?

86.1

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.

87.1

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)?

88.1

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 :(

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.

91

So many awesome games with ps plus recently, which game do I start playing! So many choices :D

almighty-slayer 28 January, 2013 @ 13:48
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.

92.1

Ok thanks for the feedback we are always listening

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 :D 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. :D

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.

93.1

as above.. we are working on it

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.

94.1

You are safe to buy Portal 2, we have no plans for it at the moment

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

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?

/Sarcasm off

99

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!

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.

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

102

@95

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

102.1

Agreed

SkarGrassHard 28 January, 2013 @ 13:57
103

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

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 :D

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 ;)
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…

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

108

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.

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. :D

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

Also, will there always be a minimum £5 top up on the store? Fed up of having to spend a fiver just to get certain DLC which is less than £1…

Thanks!

Wow, that’s a good month to be a PS+ subscriber, thanks and keep it coming :)

116

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

Just bought sleeping dogs a few weeks ago :( and I got Wipeout 2048 but this is postive as the online communty will hopefully get bigger :D

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.

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

119

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

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

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?

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. :D

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 @ 14:16
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.

126

@ Chris

Excellent, Excellent month :)

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!

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. ;)

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-
Perfect!

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

Overall: Kudos Chris, great month.

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 :D

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 :D But I imagine this is a very complicated deal to make…

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 :( )

Everything else i don’t have so i can’t complain too much!! :D

EpicRandom_XD 28 January, 2013 @ 14:21
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 :)

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 :)
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.

133.1

you are safe to buy Street Fighter 4 Arcade

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 59€
after 6 month 39€ then after 1 jear = 25€ 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 :)

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?

135.1

We’ll update you very soon – but I can say it is not out this week.

136

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

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 ;)

138.1

Yeah I can look at doing this moving forward

139

Great update :)
@Chris Howe Please not Dead Island!

>-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 @ 14:31
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: http://bit.ly/TLTcpT

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.

142.1

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

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).

Thanks

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?

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 :)

146

What an update! Fantastic :)

147

KO

148

Oh, just thought of more suggestions: Okami HD, Portal 2… Keep up the awesome work :)

149

Oh dear…

And I was supposed to finish writing my MA…

Thanks a lot ;)

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

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.

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))

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?
Thanks

153.1

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

any chance of a discount on ssx £57 is ridiculous really, i have it on disc but never play it as i hate keep changing discs all the time

155

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

156

What an awesome month :D I love Sleeping Dogs! And Wipeout! God, this update is amazing.
I have a few suggestions for upcoming months:
PS3:
Dead Island-been waiting for this one :P
Resistance 3
Skyrim-I know this one must be hard to bring.
MGS Collection or God of War Collection.
PSVITA:
Rayman Origins
Motorstorm RC

Hope you can give us some of these :D Thanks

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…..it’s kinda unfair, in my opinion.

158.1

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

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 ;)

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

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.

164

Yay – good vita content this month.

Very excited for Feb’s PS+ content. Great work :-) 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 £60 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+ :-) !!!!!

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

:(

167

@Catkiller: What a few! :P

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.

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!
