PlayStation Plus: Your March update

Hi everyone! It’s that time of the month again where we update you on all the new PlayStation Plus updates coming your way in March.

There are three new PS3 game and two for PS Vita in the line-up for March, as well as awesome titles such as F1 Race Stars, Quantum Conundrum and Wipeout 2048 that are already available.

Coming soon on PlayStation 3
We are very happy to announce that as of 6th March, for one month only, you can download acclaimed action RPG Mass Effect 3 as part of your PlayStation Plus subscription!

Developed by the very talented team at Bioware, this title completes the franchise in stunning form. The game plunges you into an all-out galactic war to take back earth from a terrifying enemy. It’s truly a first class RPG experience so make sure you check it out.

And if that’s not enough Mass Effect action for you, we’ve teamed up with our friends at publisher EA to offer great discounts on both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, for both Plus members and standard users. We’ll confirm details shortly.

Also dropping into the service on 6th March is the beautifully designed fighter Dead or Alive 5 from Tecmo Koei.

Featuring a range of game modes, the game picks up two years after the destruction of the tri- tower – headquarters and symbol of DOATEC. Helena Douglas has begun the task of rebuilding DOATEC, this time with the aim of using its technology for peaceful ends. Now in the same position once held by her father, Helena has announced that she intends to hold the fifth Dead or Alive tournament.

Your final PS3 offering for the month is the incredibly fun Joe Danger 2: The Movie. Picking up where the chart-topping, award-winning original left off, JD2 takes the world’s most determined stuntman to Hollywood. You’ll have to out run an avalanche as a skiing secret agent, take on laser spewing robots whilst flying a jetpack, or even become a water-skiing, sky-diving, quad-biking, dinosaur-dodging jungle adventurer.

Coming soon on PS Vita
First up for PS Vita on 13th March is Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Bundling together the second and third games in Hideo Kojima’s beloved series, this is surely the definitive handheld Metal Gear experience, boasting well over 30 hours of gameplay.

And last but certainly not least, on 20th March addictive puzzle platform title Puddle will join the PS Vita service. Conserve as much liquid as possible when crossing a variety of obstacles such as burning passageways, carnivorous plants and electric currents as you guide a puddle of fluid through 49 levels using the system’s rear touch pad and tilt functionality.

Puddle on PS Vita

As usual, over the coming weeks you can also expect exclusive PS Plus discounts on lots of other products, including discounts on Dead or Alive 5 and Big Sky Infinity DLC. From 27th February we also have a 40% discount on the brilliant Far Cry 3 courtesy of our friends at Ubisoft, and we’ll also be offering you the Dust 514 Starter Pack DLC for free for two weeks! We’ll update you on these offers and more in the weekly Store posts.

In summary
Leaving PS Plus in March:

Entering PS Plus in March:

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 up to 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?

Sweeet can’t wait for the influx of ME3 players, shame I got it at X-mas though:( Also Joe Danger is soooo sick, beet wanting that for ages and was bout to buy it!! Anyway keep up the good work:D




Both MGS HD games?? That’s amazing


Okay, so that’s a bit of a spectacular set of games for one month. Good work.


Amazing! THX!!!!

Sp4rkyM4rk1337 22 February, 2013 @ 1:04 pm   6

Scroll down the post slowly and it’s like opening on a Christmas present. πŸ™‚


Another great month! Kingdoms of Amalur for April??!

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:21 pm    

    We are looking at this title for various reasons but it might be quite difficult to strike a deal, but we will see

R_a_z_i_e_l 22 February, 2013 @ 1:05 pm   8

Son Of A…I Bought MGSHD like a week ago, Serves me right for buying PSN Games. Also Puddle ? meh pretty average month for Vita Owners.


Wow, very nice and varied update.

DrakeThief90 22 February, 2013 @ 1:06 pm   10

Will there be a discount of ME3 DLC?


No discount on Mass Effect 1?

PFC_Hudson 22 February, 2013 @ 1:06 pm   12

Wow! Mas Effect 3 (PS3) & Metal Gear HD (Vita). I dodged a bullet there as those were 2 games I very nearly bought recently

PS+ has saved me a fortune lately

Cheers guys!


Mostly titles I already own. Dang, just signed up for three months of Plus as well.

“First up for PS Vita on 13th March is Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.”

Just requesting that you make the HD Collection and each separate title available for download for people who own one but not the other so they don’t have to redownload both (as the HD Collection is one big package).

“And if that’s not enough Mass Effect action for you, we’ve teamed up with our friends at publisher EA to offer great discounts on both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, for both Plus members and standard users.”

Shouldn’t this be Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:23 pm    

    These discounts are not just for Plus members they are for all PSN users so it gives them the opportunity to purchase ME2 and ME3 at a discounted price.

    As above unfortuantely we were not able to secure a discount on ME1

irish-sid 22 February, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   14

Huge month, haven’t played any of these!

Jamesyp00 22 February, 2013 @ 1:07 pm   15

If you can snag some massive discounts on ME2 and ME1 digitally then i may trade in my boxed ones.
DoA 5 is one of those games iv’e been eyeing up for a while and never bought, pretty awesome to have it on this.
Can’t wait for my new 500gb ps3 in march now to fill with all this πŸ™‚

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:24 pm    

    There will be a discount on ME2 from the 6th March for 1 week only…more details to come

Alex-1124 22 February, 2013 @ 1:08 pm   16

Geez, what a month! Will Resistance Burning Skies be joining PS+ anytime soon or am I safe to buy it without worry?

laticspieman 22 February, 2013 @ 1:09 pm   17

I am extremely excited for Joe Danger and MGS collection. However I literally bought mass effect 3 last week and haven’t had time to play it yet. However does mass effect 3 come with the online pass because if it does then that’s not too bad as I bought it second hand.


Two amazing months in a row!

Is there any chance Australia will get Mortal Kombat for the PS3 and Vita on PS+ now that it has been classified? The other regions can get Gotham City Imposters and LEGO Batman to be fair – win, win for all!


Okay… I was hoping for a good month but this is probably the best month EVER – and I’ve been Plus member since day 1. 5/5 stars for this blog post! Heck, I’d give even more if it was possible.


Why not PS3 version of MGS HD Collection? -.-

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 1:11 pm   21

Ah well I have Mass Effect 3, but it is truely awesome for anyone that doesn’t have it yet. Will Mass Effect 1 be given any discount? I would also pick up Omega if discounted as i thought it a bit expensive and i believe there is a new single player dlc due out soon.

I’d like to try Joe Danger so thats good to get and i never played the original Metal gear games so will look forward to putting my vita to good use there.

Nightmare966 22 February, 2013 @ 1:12 pm   22

How do you keep this going on!? The awesome sales, the awesome IGC. I’m serious when I say I’m going to have a gaming meltdown lol

It’s certainly an awesome month, just as Fred said. Props to you Chris, this keeps getting better and better and every month I feel like it’s my birthday πŸ˜›

Dr-abdulelah 22 February, 2013 @ 1:12 pm   23

Chris can i tell you somthing
Chris you are the best
amazing month

Finallygotit_Pom 22 February, 2013 @ 1:13 pm   24

Wow !!!!!!!!! I was thinking of ME2 this time and there you go…

blade1003605 22 February, 2013 @ 1:14 pm   25

Wow. Just wow.

Amazing job, guys!

cosmic_uk 22 February, 2013 @ 1:14 pm   26

Chris, your link to MGS Collection is for the PS3 version (includes 3 games, not the Vita’s 2).

You need to link this!/en-gb/games/metal-gear-solid-hd-collection-ps-vita/cid=EP0101-PCSB00118_00-MGSHDVITA0000000

You’re welcome πŸ˜‰


This will be really good month. Good job!


Is it possible for you to bring God Of War collection volume 2 for April? I mean it would make sense as God of War:Ascension is releasing soon.

NikeJustDoItNike 22 February, 2013 @ 1:15 pm   29

Wish MGS HD collection was for PS3.

TheArmedSackboy 22 February, 2013 @ 1:16 pm   30

Awesome, haven’t got any of these. Been wanting ME3 for a while, and DOA is neat. Joe Danger isn’t as… exciting for me but I’ll certainly give it a try.

Just wondering, will we get the Final Fantasy discounts like NA got last month? I wanna get FF VI… and possibly VII.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:34 pm    

    we had a Final Fantasy sale a few weeks back where both those titles were included so they will not be on sale anytime soon I’m afraid


Dear Chris,

This is a surprise after surprise (PS4 announcement). As someone said one of the best month.

One question though. My PS+ is soon expiring and I’m planning to subscribe for 1year subscription ( plus 3 months free) but my only concern is If this will be carried forward to PS4 or not.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:35 pm    

    We do not have any details around that side of things yet but you don’t have to worry about your Plus subscription


Chris you are so much better then the previous what-is-his-name PS+ guy πŸ™‚

It shouldn’t have surprised me that the first RPG via Plus is the most “shooterish” one, that exists. πŸ˜‰

But really an amazing content. The Fighter genre isn’t really mine, but for some (dirty) reason I might give DoA a try, haha.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:37 pm    

    The great thing about DoA is that it has a story too so not just a typical fighter. Its also coming out on VITA very soon with cross play functionality


Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS3, please. Feeling a bit short changed as a long time Plus member – best stuff going to Vita


Why does the EU PS+ get great retail games for free such as Mass Effect 3, the MGS Collection and Dead or Alive 5 while the US PS+ gets small PSN games that no one has heard about?

NostrobotUK 22 February, 2013 @ 1:17 pm   36

Please guys, PLEASE, can you add the rest of the EU countries to the store? It really hurts to see that everyone can enjoy PSPlus except us! Please πŸ™

By the way, I am from Malta.

Nemeth050506 22 February, 2013 @ 1:17 pm   37

Best PS+ Update ever

MonkeyBrainsToo 22 February, 2013 @ 1:18 pm   38

WOW, second month in a row that I don’t already have any of the content. I have also just bought a Vita, so plenty to keep me going here. Thanks guys.

CloudBelmont 22 February, 2013 @ 1:18 pm   39

Holy! MGS and Dead Or Alive? Awesome job Sony. Keep this best things for PS4!!!


Oh my, oh my, oh my. Really tasty goodies there. To be honest, almost the only ones I considered buying recently, especially MGS (as I look at it now, it’s actually good it wasn’t discounted for Vita birthday, cause I’d buy it back then).
But a couple of questions – will there be discounts for DLC as well? And as some people mentioned, shouldn’t it be about discounts for ME 1 & 2 (instead of 2 and 3)?
Now the only thing left for me is to pray that Mass Effect 3 will be full English version (can anyone check it/confirm it?), because if it’s something like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I’m going to cry. Really, really hard (polish versions are like… Bad. Very bad. Or even worse. Sometimes 5 year old kid could do better with Google Translate)

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:40 pm    

    As above there will not be any discounts on the ME3 DLC I am afraid but there will be discounts on a couple of packs for Dead or Alive 5.

    The discounts for Mass Effect are correct, there will nto be a discount on ME1 but the discounts for ME2 and 3 and not just for Plus they are for all


Brill I have Mass Effect 3 and MGS HD but I can sell them both now.


wow, this month is as amazing as last month!

AshesArise 22 February, 2013 @ 1:18 pm   43

Shame it wasnt mass effect 1, ive only ever played half of that. The rest aint really my taste, guess ill have to wait until april.

S-o-h-a-i-l 22 February, 2013 @ 1:19 pm   44

Great update !

Can we please have Okami HD & Raganork Odysee considered for next month Chris ?

Everton4life 22 February, 2013 @ 1:19 pm   45

That right there is why I am a PS+ subscriber. Will be busy next month with my downloads. Outstanding.

quasivasi 22 February, 2013 @ 1:19 pm   46

PS+? Best money I ever spent gaming related! Bravo!

NostrobotUK 22 February, 2013 @ 1:23 pm   47

Continuing what I said in message #36:

The PS3 has been out for seven years now, and a lot of EU PlayStation fans, from countries who do not have access sto the store who are still not able to use PSN Store / PSN Plus legitimately (without making a fake account). This means that:

1. We cannot make use of DLC that comes included with games we buy

2. We cannot buy additional game DLC

3. We cannot buy games that are released only in the PSN Store

4. We cannot make use of the PSN Plus service which is excellent

When will you add the rest of the EU countries to the PSN Store, if at all? Please, let’s get rid to the “Sorry but this service is not available to your country or region” once for all.

A reply would be appreciated.


    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:41 pm    

    I will speak to the store team and see if there are any plans for more countries to be added in the near future


Is Metal Gear Solid HD Ps3 compatable or is iut just a vita title?

Jestersoil 22 February, 2013 @ 1:24 pm   49

Joe Danger 2 and Dead Or Alive 5 for me! already own Mass Effect 3!
great update guys! though i wish MGS HD was for ps3 too…

thezooniverse 22 February, 2013 @ 1:26 pm   50

Will my Mass Effect 3 disc saves work with this digital version? I already own everything except puddle and doa5 but still a great update to those who don’t.

Prem-aka-Prince 22 February, 2013 @ 1:28 pm   51

Wow, for once my own reaction upon reading the post was negative while meanwhile the comments are so positive. That’s actually changed my mind. Nevermind that I’ll be playing none of these games, they all have their merits and a lot of other people will get a lot out of them.
And, seeing as how it’s a pretty high quality line-up I’m still looking forward to the forseeable future with Plus on PS3.


@26 In the link you provided it states Ps Vita only then further down the page it states

1 player(s)
2685KB Minimum
Rear Touch Pad
Dual Analog Sticks
Cross-platform play (PS3β„’)

which is it? vita only or cross platform play (PS3)?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:47 pm    

    it is cross play not cross buy meaning you would need to purchase the PS3 version to use this function


Metal… Gear!?! I think I love you right now… now if you could convince Bioware to add a discount for the original Mass Effect, I would happily make that love physical!

I think that was the first time ever that nobody complained about the offered content within the first 50 comments! πŸ™‚

Well besides our Canadian friend, who falsely claimed that they’d only receive PSN titles. πŸ˜‰


My Bad, misread it as Cross-buy not Cross-platform Play … πŸ˜›

“Big Sky Infinity 5 DLC”
5 DLC? Or Big Sky Infinity 5 o_O? Or typo?
Anyway, what are those DLC would be? And what about actually fixing the game (I’m talking about Tolkienesque trophy)?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:51 pm    

    This is a typo in the upload process, I have requested it be changed. It is Big Sky Infinity DLC discounts


Someone above mentioned Kingdoms of Amalur – it would be really awesome if you could manage to pull it off!
And a discount for ME2 – great. Will there be any price change for MGS1 (psx) and/or Peace Walker (psp) as well?

Silent_Gig 22 February, 2013 @ 1:37 pm   58

This is really amazing, i havent even touched this months PS+ games yet. This is really wow.. i think im going to cry!

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 1:38 pm   59

I do worry about the future of plus though if the ps4 will not be backwards compatible, what will happen to our libary of free games. No one really wants to have two gens of console under the tv..

PFC_Hudson 22 February, 2013 @ 1:38 pm   60

R_a_z_i_e_l Said:
“Son Of A…I Bought MGSHD like a week ago, Serves me right for buying PSN Games. Also Puddle ? meh pretty average month for Vita Owners.”

Really? You can that average? You’re weird

salvogdaze 22 February, 2013 @ 1:42 pm   61



Great news on ME3 and MGS for Vita…. Already got JD but will have a go on Puddle.
Another great plus month, the Vita Plus games have all been top quality games so far and I really hope Plus helps drive Vita sales as it deserves it!

farfromsane 22 February, 2013 @ 1:45 pm   63

Another great month of games

I am a very Happy PS3 and Vita owner

Keitaro004 22 February, 2013 @ 1:47 pm   64

This is perhaps the best month ever… I already got Mass Effect 1+2 on PC, and now I get the third one for free!? Dead or Alive is a superb addition to this set (It is pretty new too!) and the Metal Gear HD collection could not make my Vita any more happy. This is like getting a late birthday present!!!

DjangoDiabolik 22 February, 2013 @ 1:47 pm   65

Is there any chance of seeing any of the Metal Gear Solid PSP games on discount?

I really want to get Portable Ops and Metal Gear Acid on my Vita, but wouldn’t pay full price as I already own them on my PSP.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:54 pm    

    Not at the moment I am afraid but hopefully we will be able to sort out some sort of PSP sale in the near future


Words can not describe how epic playstation+ is.


This is awesome, thank you PlayStation.

hotshot995 22 February, 2013 @ 1:51 pm   68

Wow Mass Effect 3, Dead or Alive 5, Joe Danger 2, these are amazing games, can’t wait to play them all πŸ˜€ thanks!11

RandyVie86 22 February, 2013 @ 1:53 pm   69

Mass Effect? You guys ROCK!!! Thanks PS+!!!

Anny change that we’ll ever get Heavy Rain, Demon Souls, Dark Souls, Bayonetta, Lollipop Chainsaw, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, or Uncharted 2,3 ?

I’m thinking about buying these games, but allmost every PS+ update has games that bought just a little before they where PS+, and thats getting frustrating :p

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 1:55 pm    

    Unfortunately Heavy Rain and Uncharted 3 are not available on the store at the moment so these are not in the plans. You never know on the rest though!


was scrolling down thinking meh poor month for me. got ME3 , no interest in DoA, joe danger was ok but then mgs HD and the month more than makes up for itself. was going to get MGS HD soon so its saved me money, pity peace walker isnt included in the glad ive experienced plus from the start and hopefully will do for many years on ps4 and beyond.

zalwelgoedgaan 22 February, 2013 @ 1:56 pm   71

Bravo Sony, Dead or Alive 5 will be mine! :] How do you guys do negotiate, anyway? The game isn’t even a year old, do you blackmail them with naughty pictures or something? XD


This is easily the best PS+ month I’ve seen so far, and I’ve been subscribing (on and off, admittedly) since the service began. I’ve been hoping to play ME3 for ages, and I’ve also been eager to try out a DOA game in anticipation of the upcoming Vita title. I own the PS3 MGS collection but I’ll be getting that Vita one as well. You’ve really spoiled us this month. Great work.

PIREDERAS 22 February, 2013 @ 1:58 pm   73

I am truly amazed by the PS Plus offerings for March! Although I had beaten Mass Effect 3 twice in May last year (sold it some 5 months ago), I may download it to play it again. I already own the PS3 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, and I will try the Vita version. Dead or Alive 5 is a game I have been wanting for months, and I will certainly play it, maybe even purchase the Vita Version too!!! The smaller games, Puddle and Joe Danger, are nice additions to the IGC!

CookieMonsterES 22 February, 2013 @ 1:58 pm   74

Impressive, Chris.

I’m not sure how do you guys do it, but the Plus updates are more spectacular every month. You can feel proud of your good work.


those are some great games.

CloudBelmont 22 February, 2013 @ 2:01 pm   76

Hey can i play DOA 5 for Vita with crossplay with plus version of DOA? If this happening…

omega_alpha-619 22 February, 2013 @ 2:02 pm   77

@ pinkplaybunny

The Ps4 will never play Ps3 games natively, including Ps3 digital games. This is just the way it is.. if you want to keep playing those games you better get used to the idea of holding onto your Ps3.
Seriously.. it’s not even an issue.

Deal with it.

L_Alive_7 22 February, 2013 @ 2:03 pm   78

CHris you Are the best Keep It UP πŸ™‚
hopefully next month will this great as well


Thank you so much for these games guys!!! πŸ˜€

vicentecarro 22 February, 2013 @ 2:05 pm   80

Great πŸ˜‰


Wow, nice update, some great games πŸ™‚

Hey Chris, will we get some Jrpg-s in near future for playstation plus? cuz im a big fan of jrpg-s, sumfin like Hyperdimension Neptunia or similar digital release, please respond πŸ˜‰

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 2:09 pm    

    Yeah we are always looking at varying the games in the service so we are looking into Jrpg’s at the moment

CloudBelmont 22 February, 2013 @ 2:07 pm   82

@Chris Howe; You, you made me so happy! Very Thanks.


this must be the holy grail of ps+ updates


Wow very good month for both PS3 and PSVita.

Thanks for that great month for both.

Still I’d like to see a good PSVita sales deal like USA got for Xmas, not the weak one EU got few weeks ago.

But gotta give applause for this PS+ month upcoming, good one!

this week has been awesome…first ps4(loved the killzone demo)and now this.
awesome work guys….last month update was amazing,i would have never thought sleeping dogs to be that good.this month u did it again.congrats to the whole eu ps blog team.
i already have mass effect 3 but i am excited for the dlc’s is one of the few game one should not miss.
i have heard some great things about joe danger 2 and dead or alive.
and please tell whether me3 will contain the multiplayer or we will have to purchase it.




Nothing new for me yet again. Not renewing PS+ for sure until you change this retail game policy. I want PS Store games, not retail ones. Give us the choice.

Splutterbug 22 February, 2013 @ 2:14 pm   88

You remember that post last week asking what type of stuff we want on plus? THIS KIND OF STUFF! Great choices, great value.

cosmic_uk 22 February, 2013 @ 2:14 pm   89

Uncharted 3 will replace 1 of Infamous 2, LBP2, Motorstorm: Apocalypse in June… Just a guess, but a nice addition round E3 when a good chance of Uncharted 4 being announced for PS4 for release sometime in 2014.

zxRATTLExz 22 February, 2013 @ 2:16 pm   90

Pretty decent. I’ll defo be getting Joe Danger 2. Almost bought it not long back but figured it would probably end up in the IGC. DOA5 is a nice change. Will probably have to play that when the missus goes to bed though hehe or she’ll think i’m a perv. As for Mass Effect 3……all done and dusted on xbox.

ChemicalBacon90 22 February, 2013 @ 2:17 pm   91

Another great month for PS+.

Will there be any discounts on Mass Effect 2 DLC?


RustySpoon80 22 February, 2013 @ 2:18 pm   92

Any chance you could give us a sneaky, sneak peak at April’s possible content. Perhaps even just the genre’s.

i just read the post agin and found out that there are no discount on me 3 dlc’s….come on guys some discount would be a very good idea.
those discounts on dishonored were great.please see if u can manage some discounts on the dlc’s.

Huono_peleis 22 February, 2013 @ 2:18 pm   94

Really disappointed that there’s no Mass Effect DLC discounts. They are quite heavily overpriced. Not going to pay 15€ for max. 2hrs. gameplay.

…and hasn’t there been enough fighters already? Whole genre is so generic that if you have played 1 you have played them all,


I don’t understand, why get PS+ members a discount on ME3 if we are getting it for free…

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 2:27 pm    

    as explained above, the ME2 and ME3 discounts are for all PSN users not Plus specifically but as a plus member you do not have to worry about buying ME3

just wow words are not enough

KaoticKibz 22 February, 2013 @ 2:23 pm   97

I’m loving this content guys, keep up the great work.. It’s better than last years. ^__^

Despite me not having a PS3 I benefit greatly from the PS plus using my Vita.


Are there any plans of bringing a Lego game (Lego batman 2, Lego Lord Of The Rings,..) to Instant games? What about Mafia 2 or Max Payne 3?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 2:29 pm    

    Nice suggestions, we will look into them.

    would like to get a litle more feedback from everyone on the Lego titles, is this something that you would like?


Wow excellent content!!! thanks


It’d be really great if “Jeanne d’Arc” (PSP) could find it’s way to the PSN store, the publisher is SCEA. It’s a Level 5 RPG which for one reason or another was never released in the UK / Europe despite critical acclaim. I think it’d make a great addition to the PS Vita library.

Perhaps something Chris / Jawad could follow up?

ContraDog 22 February, 2013 @ 2:30 pm   101

Excuse me for being a little slow, but when games like Wipeout, Lumines and Sleeping Dogs are taken off PS Plus, do they disappear from your Instant Games Collection? Or are they only gone for people who failed to download them in time?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 2:32 pm    

    They only vanish if you do not download them in time. The beauty of Plus is that as long as you are a member you will have access to all the games you download so make sure you get them in your download list!


Hey Chris.
Great update this month.
Any chance of Unit 13 getting added to the IGC any time soon?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 4:52 pm    

    We have recently had it in a sale probably not wise to place it in the IGC anytime soon


Yes I would really like one of the lego games!(PSvita)

SSJGoku786 22 February, 2013 @ 2:34 pm   104

Any chance of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in the near future?

SlimeTyrant 22 February, 2013 @ 2:35 pm   105

Another month, another satisfied customer. Thankyou very much for organizing another stellar lineup, Chris!


Woohoo! Thanks guys, another great month.

And so glad Joe Danger 2 will get more players. It really does deserve to have more support.


Lovely update! I have just bought flOw and it blew my mind, can you add some Journey, Flower sale? Pretty please πŸ™‚ love you guys!

ContraDog 22 February, 2013 @ 2:36 pm   108

Thanks! In terms of LEGO games, the only one that appeals to me is LEGO Lord of the Rings. Would be the perfect PS Plus game IMO.



Lego would be realy nice!

PS. This month is amazing (as always πŸ™‚ )

redmattuk 22 February, 2013 @ 2:39 pm   110

Any chance of
LBP karting,
Soul Calibur 5,
Binary Domain,
Amazing Spiderman,
Dragon’s dogma,
Skate 3,
Cars 2,
Jak trilogy
Resistance 3
Disgaea 4

…. ?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 4:53 pm    

    Some good titles there, unforunately we will not be able to use Dragons Dogma or Binary Domain but will certainly look into the rest


What about a The Walking Dead and Unfinished Swan discount?


Thank you so much Sony, Tecmo Koei, Konami, and EA for this amazing update.

I have some questions, please.

1) Is Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker included in Metal Gear Solid HD Collection?

2) Are there going to be discounts on Dead or Alive 5 DLCs? and can you please tell us which are the ones that include all the costumes? Because there are like 20 DLCs for costumes and it is confusing to tell which ones that include all or most of them.

3) Can you talk with Namco Bandai to make an English version of Tales of Vesperia (they only released a Japanese version for PlayStation 3 and an English version for Xbox 360 which is weird, because they already have the English translation) and release it on PlayStation Plus? That would be too awesome because a lot of people want the English version and it is considered one of the best JRPG games.

Thank you so much.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 3:10 pm    

    1) no it does not

    2) There will be discounts on the following two packs for DoA5 – Uniforms and What a Character

    3) We will look into this

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 2:44 pm   113

I alway like a Lego game Chris, I got my first platinum on a lego game. Lego LOTR or Batman 2 would be good to have, i think i have the earlier ones.

PAUL_UK-77 22 February, 2013 @ 2:44 pm   114

nice update

chalkychalk 22 February, 2013 @ 2:45 pm   115

WOW. Brilliant month for PS3 and Vita. Well pleased with these games. My daughter is pleased, she always kicks my ass on Dead or Alive.

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 2:45 pm   116

The beauty of Plus is that as long as you are a member you will have access to all the games you download – as long as you don’t replace your ps3 with a ps4 πŸ™

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 3:13 pm    

    Nothing has been confirmed either way about the PS4 and Plus yet so try not to worry about it πŸ™‚

cosmic_uk 22 February, 2013 @ 2:46 pm   117

LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes for PS3 gets my vote


Also, can you please have discounts on the following games:

– Resident Evil Code: Veronica
– Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles
– Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
– Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken
– Blade Kitten
– Mini Ninjas

Thank you very much.


A question and a comment: First, will the MGS HD Collection have the VR missions too or just 2 and 3?? Will it be the retail version??

Comment in regard to 38’s KoA:
Every Rhode Island resident should get that game for free. 38 really shelacked us on the loans they took form the State. Now, as a result, RI taxpayers essentially paid for the studio and the game. FORGET about what they did and how they treated all the local talent. I vote NO, NO, NO! on Kingdom of Amular. Keep it real Sony.

Unicronic 22 February, 2013 @ 2:49 pm   120

I really do have too many plus games to play. Keep em coming

Nightmare966 22 February, 2013 @ 2:50 pm   121

I just realized…

Chris, didn’t that Poll about what content we wanted on Plus close yesterday? Will we be able to see the results soon? πŸ™‚

And on LEGO — I’ve tried a few demos, and they look really fun. Wouldn’t be bad to give a try with one of them.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 3:15 pm    

    Yeah I will be collating the feedback from everyone and providing a post with the findings, I can’t confirm when that will be yet but keep an eye out as I expect it to be interesting

Faustofausto 22 February, 2013 @ 2:50 pm   122

There should be another Plus update at March, Mortal Kombat and Guardians of the Middle Earth shuold leave the IGC at 27th March. There will be any update about that?

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 3:16 pm    

    Mortal Kombat and Guardians of Middle Earth will be leaving the service on March 6th

uk-kurorai 22 February, 2013 @ 2:52 pm   123

Mr Howe, this update is killer. Thank you for striking all those awesome deals. It’s getting way more difficult to ignore the service each passing month. Fantastic update!

JammieDodgerz 22 February, 2013 @ 2:53 pm   124

I’m completely speechless, this is yet another amazing update. Best service EVER.


Oh, sorry I forgot, can you also please have a discount on Okami HD?

Thank you very much.

sainicen47 22 February, 2013 @ 2:58 pm   126

I really wanted BorderLands 2 to be part of the upcoming month. Already played ME3 but DOA5 seems awesome.

tolman_ps 22 February, 2013 @ 2:58 pm   127

Is there any way to buy discounted game even if it is on ps+ and one has active ps+ subscription? I would like to buy ME3 and keep it forever even without ps+ (till they shutdown PSN 3).


> I would like to buy ME3 and keep it forever even without ps+
> (till they shutdown PSN 3). (till they shutdown PSN 3).

Same here; also let’s hope that they find away to continue to offer the PS3 downloads for ‘legacy’ platforms as PSN evolves into the next gen!

DiscworldDeath 22 February, 2013 @ 3:03 pm   129

I second the Jeanne D’Arc coming to the EU PS store.

Could we also get Valkyrie Chronicles, especially 2, to hit the EU online store? I want to throw my money at you, but it’s not there πŸ™

Also, Disgaea games aside from 3 for the Vita? I’d be really happy if any Disgaea games were to hit PS+, but I’d pay for them as well, so long you unlock them on the store πŸ˜€

Cleggworth 22 February, 2013 @ 3:05 pm   130

Hi Chris,

You can add me to the list of people who would love a lego game to appear in the IGC. never played one before but the idea appeals to me. That’s what the IGC is for right? trying something new

Also more rpg’s and less fighting games. just my opinion but both mortal kombats and doa within a few months is overkill

plus has been great to me since i joined apart from that. despite me already owning me3 and sleeping dogs last month it really is a good service

Terrordactyl 22 February, 2013 @ 3:06 pm   131

Plus really needs to deliver it’s FIRST RPG

Kingdoms of Amalur
Dragon’s Dogma
Demon Souls

Something of that ilk would make a nice addition.

jammin24 22 February, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   132

Hi Chris,

I agree with post 98, a Lego game would be a great idea if it’s possible!
Any of the Lego titles would do, but it would represent something different and something I can let the kids play on once in a while!

Keep up the great work!

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 3:12 pm    

    Ok the responses seem quite positive towards LEGO, let me look into the possibility of Lego then. These things take a little time though as we have to negotiate with publishers so will update you all when I can

supersmith2500 22 February, 2013 @ 3:08 pm   133

Sounds like a another excellent Plus update. Pitty I already got ME3 for free from the Hoarding competition last year and also got MGS HD Collection for the Vita. Might give DoA5 a try (depending how much space it is). Like always, great update. = )

Also, will the next update not contain any puzzlers next month? I think pretty much every one game is on there always a puzzler. = P

supersmith2500 22 February, 2013 @ 3:09 pm   134

*mean’t to say one of the games every month is a puzzler. Hope I didn’t confuse you.

cowbanana 22 February, 2013 @ 3:11 pm   135

Nice update.


I’d also love to see Jeanne d’Arc on the EU store. I hope we get it! (I’d also love to see Ultimate Ghosts’n Goblins and Dracula X Chronicles, but Capcpom and Konami are being stupid about it). I don’t hold much hope for these PSP titles on EU PSN anymore πŸ™

Unchained Blades is another recent PSP title where the EU is getting snubbed :/ Any news on that one?

I’d really like to get all of these for my Vita.

supersmith2500 22 February, 2013 @ 3:14 pm   136

MGS2 will only have the VR Missions and is included in the collection along with a bonus mode called Snake Tales where you play as Snake (or Pliskin) instead of Raiden in the Plant chapter.

Peace Walker is not included in the Vita version unfortunately because the PSP version is released.


Amazing update again, and thanks for telling us in advance and not the same week it goes live!, keep on the good work you have done the last months on the ps+ side…

MA76_666 22 February, 2013 @ 3:20 pm   138

Chris 3-in-a-row !? r u looking @ my download list & picking the plus GOTM..!
i got to say amaizing update for the ones who dont own it ..

happy gaming

please try (i know its hard) to secure day 1 games discount ..thank you & happy PS4 πŸ™‚

About those Lego games, I only ever bought one of those Lego Star Wars games. Didn’t like it and sold it quickly. Didn’t like the PSP Lego Batman either and deleted it after 5 minutes.

But I wouldn’t mind if you offered one of those to everyone else, as long as you don’t flood us with Lego games. πŸ˜‰
I don’t mind games of any sort at all, as long they have a certain level of quality and as long as there is enough variety.

So I don’t mind Dead or Alive 5 now, for example. But considering that we already had several Brawlers and other Fighing games within the last year, I wouldn’t want to see another one within the next 3-4 months. Imho there is too many of those in Plus, considering their general standing and market share.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 3:25 pm    

    comments duly noted, we always look for variety to try and please everyone’s tastes but hopefully the results of the poll will provide a good insight into the wants of the Plus members

kkuubbaas 22 February, 2013 @ 3:21 pm   140

I want MGS Col on PS3 πŸ™

Prem-aka-Prince 22 February, 2013 @ 3:27 pm   141

I don’t really favour the Lego games, personally. Though they apparently are quite good. Each individual Lego game just seems to be only one of many, which would mean I would never be satisfied with only one. Just putting my opinion on the list.

PFC_Hudson 22 February, 2013 @ 3:31 pm   142

I’d also like to see Lego games on PS+, although I’ve completed them all aside from LotR

Lego games are quite good fun, suitable for all ages and reasonably easy to platinum

poipoi11gk 22 February, 2013 @ 3:34 pm   143

Awesome month, but we need more RPG on Vita. Maybe something like FF Tactics? Or Disgaea 3?


Another great montn for guys like to play mass efect and fighting games because i dont like them at all πŸ™‚ also i bought metal gear collection because i find it cheep in retail btw amazing game i play now the first metal gear for psp i never played it before and im playstasion gamer years now πŸ™‚ i tnink i try joe and puddle. Great question #31 and thanks for the quick answer. i wonder when ps4 comes out if plus continue to give ps3 games or continue to ps4 only witn new services and offers

Querdenker 22 February, 2013 @ 3:40 pm   145

@Chris Howe

Concerning the recent price reductions of Darksiders 2 and its DLC: The season pass still costs €14.99/Β£11.99, but the three DLC items it grants access to cost €4.47/Β£3.58 together. Are you going to reduce the season pass’ price?


As you spilled out those upcoming sales for TWD and Unfinished Swan Chris, how about Sound Shapes? I’m so eager to get this game!

But as I know that they already had a sale for it in the USA in January, I decided to wait and wait and wait … πŸ™‚

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 4:56 pm    

    I have asked the question but might not be able to secure a discount on this just yet

Holy mother of god this is awesome!
even though i already bought DOA5, digital version can make my life easier and a few friends of mine will also be able to get this game!
and MGS HD for vita? YES!4


Hi Chris

Regarding the Lego games, I’ve played them all since PS2, have platinum trophy in each one released on PS3, I’m finishing Lego LOTR and only the Vita version is left to play, to have played the whole collection.

So, it would be super awesome if you could bring Lego Lord of the Rings for Vita in once of the next months πŸ™‚

Although I’ve played them all, I think they all are great games, fun and nice ones to play with your kid,wife,husband, etc etc..

Make it happen πŸ˜€


Chris “Yeah we are always looking at varying the games in the service so we are looking into Jrpg’s at the moment”


Please please make this happen – Legasista or Hyperdimension MK2 please(especially as HN Victory is on the way)over Agarest.

Nice offering in March – at least people can see what the whole bruhaha was about. I platted mine in about 4 days and then being rather mercenary sold to Game during their initial troubles stocking the game. Mass Effect 2 is actually superior to ME3. Shame you couldn’t secure a discount on ME1 (I still have my xbox copy though).

As for the Lego games – would love to see Lego Lord of The Rings or any of the ones for vita would be good. They are top fun in couch co-op.

Personally I would like to see discounts on Realms of Ancient War and D&D Daggerdale. For vita plus games Virtues Last Reward and New Little King Story

Carnivius_Prime 22 February, 2013 @ 3:54 pm   150

No thanks. The Mass Effect games bore me to tears and Dead or Alive hasn’t qualified as a decent fighting game for a long time. Annoyed we STILL didn’t get Super SFIV Arcade like the US did… How long do I have to wait?

Carnivius_Prime 22 February, 2013 @ 3:56 pm   151

Oh and seeing the mentions of Lego games, I put in a vote for Lego Batman 2. Best one by far.

umusuarioqualque 22 February, 2013 @ 3:58 pm   152

Will metal gear hd collection be available in ps3 as well?

God be with you! bye! πŸ˜€


Awesome update.
By the way, is there any chance we could see some pre-order / new game release discounts akin to the recent PS+ Aliens: Colonial Marines discount in the future? I’d gladly buy all my games from PSN, if you PS+ offered discounts on new releases.
Pre-order offer for God of War: Ascension (59.99€), PlayStation Plus members get an additional -15% off (or equivalent added to account in Store credit)? I’d buy that in a heartbeat.

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 5:03 pm    

    We are working on this kind of initiative with the publishers, stick with us we will get there πŸ™‚

Jesse-Blue 22 February, 2013 @ 4:00 pm   154

Another excellent update!.
It amazes me how you secure so many great games all the time for PLUS.

Anyone still defending M$ lousy Live charging the same price for giving you absolutely nothing except the “permission” to play online is retarded.
I am puzzled M$ still have customers…

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 4:00 pm   155

Oh regarding your comment about being able to purchase via the online store. Everytime I’ve tried this it seems to get stuck when you go to check out and it trys to sign me in. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

frenchpoliser 22 February, 2013 @ 4:04 pm   156

As others have said, it’s looking like a great month for content. In fact there’s not much else on my wish list:

Uncharted 3 (which looking at your comments is unlikely)
MGS PSP titles
Skyrim (Got KoA so this is a no no for me)
Any Lego (apart from PotC)

Kerotan_Eater 22 February, 2013 @ 4:04 pm   157

Can you make sure Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is separated with MGS3 and MGS2 as separate downloads? The file is big and I want to have the ability to chop and change easily with my nearly full 16 gig memory.

(btw sorry I posted this in the Ratchet post accidentally, please ignore that one)

Imafia97 22 February, 2013 @ 4:05 pm   158

As you say , PS PLUS IGC focuses on variety , but i see huge lack of sports games or even racing games ( excluding last months wipeout).
I am a huge sports fan and would love some sports games added to PS plus library for PS VITA( i only own ps vita and psp).Games like virtua tennis or F1 would do great.(just a suggestion)
Love this month update also , really addicted to lumines , thanks for that.
Now one thing i want from sony is to reduce the 32gb card price of vita , my 16gb card cant take anymore ps plus awesomeness :d

Legendaey517 22 February, 2013 @ 4:06 pm   159

thanks ps+ it’s best gemes of month))


Yes, please.

We would like some Lego games.

Thank you.

DieFliedermouse 22 February, 2013 @ 4:17 pm   161

Hey this is a great lie up. Looking forward to the epic sniper batlle with The End all over again! (“Grandpa! Grandpa!”)

Any chance of discounts on the God of War series to coincide with the release of Acension? My PSP copy of Ghost of Sparta is currently residing in the PSP of a light fingered tradesman after we called him in to fix our ceiling. πŸ™


“members access to at least 14 games at any one time and up to 65 games across the course of a 12 month subscription – all for a one-off payment of just Β£39.99.”

Can someone explain me why the “up to 65 games”, if you start with 14 games and update 5 a month, you’ll end up with 74 total games.(inc Vita games), if you update 4 a month it’ll add up to 62 games.

Will sony change the number of games updated, or there’s a mistake.

Is it a minimum of 65 games instead of up to?

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 4:17 pm   163

Hmm sports games, not really a fan but some that might appeal to a wider audience like Olympics 2012 which I really enjoyed when i borrowed it off a friend or 3D ultra mini golf would be good (I’ve already got it but its a good game), if we have to have sports games to keep the sports people happy πŸ™‚

cooldudematt 22 February, 2013 @ 4:19 pm   164

Hey Chris
I hope you are still reading these comments.
What are the chances of seeing Mirror’s Edge on PS+ Instant Game Collection?
I’d really like to see this along with some lego games & superhero games (The Amazing Spider-Man).
Also, Please could you give us plus members some new avatars for our profiles. Maybe some more discounts on PS1 titles.
Thanks in advance (If I get a Reply).

Grimm-Preacher 22 February, 2013 @ 4:19 pm   165

Enjoy those free PS3 games on Plus boys as none of them will be compatible with PS4 πŸ™

ALSHBAH_06 22 February, 2013 @ 4:20 pm   166

is there pre-order fo GOW:A .. plz Answer πŸ™‚

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 5:06 pm    

    I’m sorry I do not work on that title the best place to ask is a GoW Ascension blog post

Spectacular but I don’t know when you think I’m going to have time to play all these games! πŸ˜‰

supersmith2500 22 February, 2013 @ 4:24 pm   168

Hey again Chris, any chance you can consider these games in the future:

Tokyo Jungle
Sonic Generations
KillZone HD
ICO & Shadow of the Colossus HD
MegaMan 10
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
LBP Karting

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extended
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD
Unit 13
When Vikings Attack!
Ninja Gaiden Sigma +
Sound Shapes
Street Fighter X Tekken
Little Kings Story

    Chris Howe 22 February, 2013 @ 5:07 pm    

    Yep there are quite a few on that list that are under consideration at the moment….. I can’t say which ones though πŸ˜‰

anunnakid 22 February, 2013 @ 4:25 pm   169

Simply just WOW!

Amazing PS+ this coming month.

supersmith2500 22 February, 2013 @ 4:26 pm   170

You know what’s weird, we hardly seen any games from Activision yet. =S Both on US and EU.

Great update, nice mix of games.
Nice work Chris.

Wouldn’t mind some Lego games also.

Have a nice weekend.

supersmith2500 22 February, 2013 @ 5:10 pm   176

Yeah, I’m not going to bother listen to him. I’m just going to move on and be happy.


People feel cheated everytime they buy a game and then it appears free on PS Plus.

The thing is, the fact that you already bought the game brings you two advantages:

1- You get to use the game even if you cancel your subscription (or Sony ends the service)
2- You played it from the moment you bought it…

If you wait long enough I can assure you the price will go down.
When GTA V comes out it will be 60€, if you wait and buy it in 2015 it will cost you some 30€ or something.

People moan a lot because they bought this or that game 3 months ago on discount and now it’s free…

theo_andravida 22 February, 2013 @ 5:18 pm   178

Chris Howe , why dont you remove uncharted and gravity rush from ps vita so that more games are added per week?That way ps plus and ps vita would attract more fans
I hear several compaints of people who sold their ps vita because of that or others that because of small amount of games free on ps plus per month they are planning to buy a wii u or 3ds
Why dont you?
I am sure it would be nice to see ac3 soon and what about retro city rampage and ninja gaiden sigma plus that are already free on N.America Arent we getting those any time soon?

Demoplay86 22 February, 2013 @ 5:23 pm   179

@Chris Howe
Love the update and appreciate it immensely but I have been hitting you guys an we in AU please get more PSX releases?
In particular World of Mana, Breath of Fire IV, Chrono Trigger and Suikoden 1 and 2? Other countries have had them for years =(

Also, MGS HD Collection comes out on my bday. THANK YOU!

MadMigsRSA 22 February, 2013 @ 5:38 pm   180

Chris Howe, for an JRPG title(s) for April, please consider the following for the PSN+ Service:

Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel
Hyperdimension Neptunia
Record of Agarest War Zero
Cross Edge
Last Rebellion
Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland

And the following as a discount sale for PSN+ and PSN- users:
Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland
Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland
Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2
Record of Agarest War
Valkyria Chronicles

Please put these under consideration, April is my birthday month πŸ™‚

Imafia97 22 February, 2013 @ 5:38 pm   181

@chris please consider sports games in the next ps plus .(ps vita)
Humble request

Dennilicious 22 February, 2013 @ 5:40 pm   182

I considered purchasing DoA5 a while ago so this is great news. I’ve already played Mass Effect to death, but hopefully it being free for Plus members will help me convince a friend to finally try it.

Also, it looks like I’ll have plenty of great games to play once the Vita finally gets a price cut.

Demoplay86 22 February, 2013 @ 5:40 pm   183

Also, I would like to echo a few people and support the idea of getting an English Tales of Vesperia looked into. I don’t care if PS4 is around the corner, I want that game lol
I could redirect you to a good 50k others who do also in pal regions.
Well, those who want it enough to complain online anyway =P

Seriously though Chris Howe. Ever since I got my Vita, because of my PS+ subscription I had games to play as soon as I had a card and more keep coming. I love my Vita because of you guys.

Any chance of seeing the following on PS+?

For RPG Fans:
– Cross Edge
– Ar Tonelico – Qoga Knell of Ar Ciel
– Catherine
– Hyper Dimension Neptunia 1 or 2
– Record of Agarest War ZERO
– White Knight Chronicles I

Demoplay86 22 February, 2013 @ 5:41 pm   184

Or for Trophy Hunters:
– Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
– Megamind
– Where the Wild Things Are
– Up
– Shrek: Forever After
– Godfather II
– Legend of the Guardians
– Saw I
– Saw II
– Mod Nation Racers
– Mini Ninjas
– Avatar
– How to Train Your Dragon
– Dante’s Inferno
– Ice Age: Dawn of Dinosaurs
– Monopoly: Streets
– CSI: Fatal Conspiracy
– WWE: Legends of Wrestlemania
– Ironman II
– Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage I
– Back to the Future (FULL GAME w/Platinum)

I’m sure any trophy hunter would be happy to see any of those listed. Many of them are desperately sought after on ebay and other places. I myself haven’t bothered in case you guys give em away for free.

Terarded 22 February, 2013 @ 5:50 pm   185

excuse me while i go kill myself as i just bought mass effect 3 on ebay before coming here .

dark_angel69 22 February, 2013 @ 5:55 pm   186

Great update this month Chris

Already have Mass Effect 3 platinum but will be checking out the girl fights for sure πŸ˜‰ Might give joe danger a try too

Will be a month of hot chicks. 1st then Tomb Raider then Dead or alive 5 the next day!! Great month indeed. lol


There’s only one problem with Ps plus, finding time to play all this amazing stuff! Great bunch of games for my Ps3 and my Vita. πŸ™‚

n3w_J33p 22 February, 2013 @ 6:12 pm   188

WOW blows my mind how much better plus service EU is compared to Us Plus, keep up the good work.

pinkplaybunny 22 February, 2013 @ 6:21 pm   189

Why can’t we have Dragons Dogma and Binary Domain?? These were two I was really hoping for this year πŸ™

Waterfine 22 February, 2013 @ 6:29 pm   190

Oh!!so sweet!! I love you Sony Europe!


Hi Chris!!

First of all thank you for another great month of PS+!

Regarding the LEGO games feedback PLEASE make LEGO Lord of the Rings available for PS3 (many people are asking for Vita unfortunally)!

As for Batman 2 DC Super Heroes , just brought it about a month ago so it would be a real shame to see it appear on IGC.

Keep up the good work!

Best regards from Portugal

THE-PLASTICA-MAN 22 February, 2013 @ 6:34 pm   192

Hold on a second please, I didn’t understand very well. I got those games for free with PSN Plus:

Leaving PS Plus in March:

6th March: Sleeping Dogs
6th March: Vanquish
6th March: LIMBO
13th March: Wipeout 2048

Does that mean I cna get those games for free with PSN Plus later too?

Entering PS Plus in March:

6th March: Mass Effect 3
6th March: Dead or Alive 5
6th March: Joe Danger 2
13th March: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
20th March: Puddle

MGS Collection for PS Vita for FREE?

Edit: I didn’t get Lumines for free by the way, is it free for PSN Plus?

dannehbwoy 22 February, 2013 @ 6:34 pm   193

nice selection of games this month, but how about giving us some new dynamic themes and avatars? we havent had any decent new ones for ages!!!!!


That’s an amazing update!

Demoplay86 22 February, 2013 @ 6:48 pm   195

Any chance we’ll be seeing the following come to PAL regions any time soon? (specifically AU)

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Acceleration of Suguri X-Edition, Counterstrike: GO, Arcana Heat 3, Derrick the Deathfin, Final Fight: Double Impact, Legasista, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon or Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels Plus?

Been hanging on the release of a few of these for ages.

Any word on Castle Crashers DLC coming to AU anytime soon either?

Demoplay86 22 February, 2013 @ 6:52 pm   196

Oh and one last thing.
I think many more people would spend money on digital games (and on gaming in general) if digital copies weren’t more expensive then hard copies in many cases. A little lower price is a lot of incentive. Especially for lazy people who’d rather not leave the house.
That said, a lot of old games really need a price drop.
I hope this feed back was useful

Terarded 22 February, 2013 @ 6:53 pm   197

Chris, you should look into offering some sort of choice for playstation plus. this month is the third month in a row where i have already owned the main game (all excellent choices too i must say) i just wanted to float a suggestion by you that itd be really handy if there was some sort of choice system on which game you get in a month. i understand you make a deal with the game publisher and there is only a certain amount of profits that can be spent but it could be done through the profits usually spent on these deals giving out to the game publishers in relation to what percentage chose their game (if 45% of people chose sleeping dogs, their company would get 45% of the money that goes towards a normal deal) this would also allow repeat deals too.
i know the likelihood of this actually happening is slim if not non-existent but i along with many other plus members are getting sick of games we already own being put up πŸ™ so i thought id try and float an idea by you to hopefully one day see something happen

captain_crash199 22 February, 2013 @ 6:53 pm   198

Fantastic stuff! Please keep PS+ for the PS4 Sony as it’s absolutely brilliant.

stevilkenevil 22 February, 2013 @ 6:55 pm   199

That’s an absolutely fantastic update; cheers Chris!

True_Heresy 22 February, 2013 @ 7:00 pm   200

In June, for the one year anniversary of Instant Game Collection and in anticipation of PS4 you should do all the previously available games but for one month only. The influx would be RIDICULOUS in terms of new subscribers and the hype would be insane!

AeonsDead 22 February, 2013 @ 7:03 pm   201

Yeeeaaah, absolutely blinding choices for Vita and PS3 this month, to me this is the single best month for PSPlus.

Terarded 22 February, 2013 @ 7:06 pm   202

p.s i like comment #204

p.p.s i dont like the idea of lego to much, but if you do end up doing it could you do the lego harry potter? its the only one that caught my interest at all.

What a nonsense. What kind of anniversary would it be to simply gift newcomers everything that previous subscribers paid for, for free?
But hey, why not simply make every single game free? And the hardware too? Imagine _that_ hype … geez.

Warthog300 22 February, 2013 @ 7:18 pm   204

MGS HD just for Vita? πŸ™

lisatsunami 22 February, 2013 @ 7:19 pm   205

Oh, oh, you just made your US counterpart want to call in sick Monday as he will be verbally crucified that our Plus games “suck” compared to the EU.

I have an EU account also but being an avid gamer I always have all the AAA games at launch but I appreciate the Plus membership anyway.

Not a Plus thing, but I wish all the old PS2 Harry Potter games would be brought as classics on the PSN store. The first 3 by EA were so good, but I played them on the GameCube.

uberkakis 22 February, 2013 @ 7:49 pm   206

Oh Chris, you little rascal, you…

I haven’t even had time to drag my jaw of the floor since last month, and here you go, ramming back down. PS Plus (and you sir) define the word amazing!

another_gamer195 22 February, 2013 @ 7:50 pm   207

Speaking as a day1 plus subscriber up till a few months back, i really got to say how glad i am i lapsed my plus sub. Not just because i either allready had most of the (good) IGC games from launch, or haven’t really cared for any i hadn’t owned, no, my main problem would of been shame/embarresment. as though i may buy a game at launch, i rarely finish many for, up till 12 months later in one or two cases, So IF i still had plus and a say Sleeping Dogs type game came out.. lol.. i would be getting called a ?,, or charity case by some, ok, All my mates.. seriously. thats how ‘some’ people actually look at this, .. service, like a kind of red cross for underprivileged gamers. Now i Do like a deal, or bargain as much as anyone, but i Would feel like i was being given aid IF i was still subbing.. Also, though I will prob get some h8. What do ‘some’ plus users expect ?. Have you read some of these posts here.. it’s as though for 40 Quid (a Year!) some ppl think there able to ask for Anything, actually seen BLOPS2 ‘requested’ the other day.. Discounts on New releases (like US ?) and i’d come back. Not till then.

SammY_JC 22 February, 2013 @ 7:54 pm   208

Disappointed as I already own Mass Effect 3 – I’d have loved to see fellow BioWare RPG Dragon Age – but it’s great for Plus users who don’t already have it, and I’m pretty excited to play Joe Danger 2!

DynamicSun 22 February, 2013 @ 8:03 pm   209

I’m disappointed that the MGS HD Collection is only for the Vita. I wish that it was for PS3 too. And what about some Ninja Gaiden games for the PS3 this or next month?


Wow, nice update! However, I have one question… is the online pass for Mass Effect 3 included? πŸ™‚

theskillzy 22 February, 2013 @ 8:12 pm   211

i dont have any of these games πŸ˜€

sooooo any chance of skyrim or any NHL games coming up ?

mike20036 22 February, 2013 @ 8:22 pm   212

I will be playing Mass Effect 3 πŸ™‚ As I never played any of those games before. What a great month for plus πŸ™‚

another_gamer195 22 February, 2013 @ 8:48 pm   213

Mass Effect online pass IS included, Chris allready answered similar questions before saying Every plus game that has online/mp or co-op modes will Allways come with the needed pass to use them, unless specifically stated otherwise, i can’t see no mention in his post that it won’t have pass, so i believe you’s are all good to go, also you need online pass for (very easy, for ME game) plat.. so they’d be murders if it weren’t included.

sakulukk 22 February, 2013 @ 8:52 pm   214

Thank you for Dear or Alive!

sakulukk 22 February, 2013 @ 8:52 pm   215

Dead or Alive* :S


Can I just say huge thanks to the Sony EU team for providing us with great games every month on playstation plus. Already got my mates into subscribing for playstation plus since we’re all poor students.
Also thank you for introducing sleeping dogs to me, I was not really interested in the game when it was released but when it came on plus I played that game so much. I wished I bought the game to show my support for the developer but I do plan to buy the DLC so the devs can get money from me.

tiago-kun 22 February, 2013 @ 9:14 pm   217

Really!? Chris, give it a rest!

I mean, after the awesome february stuff, you pull a dead or alive 5, joe danger and even manage to get away with the best metal gears on vita? :O

Now I have to get a bigger vita mem card πŸ˜€

Not that Mass Effect 3 and Puddle are bad either πŸ˜‰

Keep’em coming Chris! Great work you are doing.


PSPlus is great, but could you give more games for kids? Most of games are PEGI 16 and 18. I would be very happy to see some LEGO games on PSPlus πŸ™‚
Thanks for great games!


@ another_gamer195

Thank you for clarifying it. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to play ME3!

vigilante_man 22 February, 2013 @ 9:33 pm   220

Only 9 months into my subscription and I have some awesome extra games to play. PS+ has got to be the best deal ever for any gaming system!

Even when the PS4 Beast arrives I’ll be playing my PS3 for a good few years.

Wow for Vita content – I was thinking about getting a PS Vita hand held and now I have to! Some of the games I wanted to get initially are Uncharted GA, Wipeout 2048 & Gravity Rush. And now to add the brilliant MGS HD Collection is mind-blowing.

I AM now getting a PS Vita in the next two weeks!!!

Thanks a million Playstation.

edwardccm 22 February, 2013 @ 9:36 pm   221

Hi Chris.

First of all, awesome update. Actually, it’s beyond awesome. It is not how big the titles that made me go “H0ly Sheet!” but it’s the combination of the games and the various genre that they cover. I see that you guys really took the results of the poll to heart, the one where you asked us what kind of contents that we will like to see on Plus.

However, I do need to clarify something. Please correct me if I am wrong, but as I recall, shouldn’t there be 10 PS3 games, and 4 PS Vita games in the IGC at any given time? Right now I am only counting 9 PS3 games. It was also promised that the amount of Vita games will not affect the amount of PS3 games in the IGC.


    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:33 am    

    There are currently 10 PS3 Games:

    Little Big Planet 2
    MotorStorm Apocalypse
    inFamous 2
    Sleeping Dogs
    Guardians of Middle Earth
    Mortal Kombat
    F1 Race Stars
    Quantum Conundrum

Robinworldwide 22 February, 2013 @ 9:38 pm   222

Wow…just wow!! It just keeps getting better. I’m wildly impressed and excited…keep up the good work guys and take ps plus into the PS4 era too please! πŸ™‚


:O …. HOW did you manage to secure all this?!

Sleeping Dogs was an amazing game, still playing it now in fact. I’m defiantly going to try Mass Effect 3 – I wasn’t interested enough to pay for it, but seeing as I got PS+, im defiantly going to take advantage of at least one of the new Instant Game collections every month!


Amazing update! First month in ages that I haven’t had any of the games, top stuff!

HighSaintz 22 February, 2013 @ 10:20 pm   225

Hey is it possible if we can get some avatars. i really want some. πŸ™‚

TheOne1Way 22 February, 2013 @ 10:48 pm   226

hey guys another great month! will we be getting spec ops,resistance 3,farcry 3 or assassins creed 3 anytime soon?any news would be a great help : )

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:36 am    

    They are all unlikely at the moment I am afraid, FC3 and Assassins Creed 3 are both rather new

MordecaiHunter 22 February, 2013 @ 10:54 pm   227

wow thats what you call a update, fair play to you guys thanks

xXCoolestChappXx 22 February, 2013 @ 11:00 pm   228


X_Blood_Curse_X 22 February, 2013 @ 11:15 pm   229

Signed in just to say how awesome this update is.

Very pleased with both PS3 and the Vita games.

Thanks a lot!


Hey, thank you for the great PS Plus update. I haven’t got any of the games so I’m pretty happy.

Also any word on when The Walking Dead will come to New Zealand? It was recently classified so it should be soon? And will there be any discounts with or without PS Plus? Since we’ve been waiting for like a year, I say we deserve it.

AProphetofFortun 23 February, 2013 @ 12:04 am   231

The quality of the PS+ offerings never cease to amaze me. Good work, guys.

drGiggless 23 February, 2013 @ 12:16 am   232

I really wish I had EU PS+ instead of US PS-



…well that kinda sucks, the only one Im interested in (MGS HD) is Vita only and not crossbuy =/.
Also to anyone saying it is, Mass Effect is not an RPG, its a shooter with light RPG elements o_o…I would not be surprised in any way if you had hoardes of disgruntled RPG fans complaining about the fact th
at they still only get shooters :p.Would have loved for the Vita to get Joe Danger 2 (as it looks crap), a wasted month of plus I fear =\.
It seems very strange that Mass Effect 3 is getting a PS+ discount if its also free…unless you meant the DLC. Or a ME2+3 bundle.


Another amazing month guys, thanks a lot πŸ™‚
Can you confirm if MGS HD is vita only, or cross platform?
I have MGS HD anyway, but just to clear it up.

Also, can we perhaps look forward to Okami HD or Persona 4 next month? πŸ˜€

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:43 am    

    MGS HD is VITA only it does have cross play functionality but you will need to buy the PS3 version

vonhammer 23 February, 2013 @ 3:18 am   235

Gutted about MGS being the Vita version, but can’t really complain.

domdenger 23 February, 2013 @ 4:27 am   236

Oh my God …. AWESOME πŸ™‚

Cha0s00789 23 February, 2013 @ 4:44 am   237

Can you please look at bringing Valkyria Chronicles to the PSN store? I have wanted this title for so long but never can I find it in stores. Where I live , I cannot afford to use online shopping , so PSN is a great alternative.

Campomaior 23 February, 2013 @ 6:17 am   238

What about a discount on ni no kuni?

mistercrow 23 February, 2013 @ 6:41 am   239

That great for EU but Sony has really let down us NA PS+ subscribers. I wont be renewing mine if Sony is going to continue to not give NA any of the great games EU is getting.


Chris, any intention of dropping the whole MGS HD collection (pretty sure the PSP ones got a PS3 remake) when Phantom Pain comes out? (even if its not MGS 5 thatd be pretty amusing tbh) Let the Vita owners get the less good games when you have to give one a good game and the others bad >_>.

UnholyMagpye 23 February, 2013 @ 7:49 am   241

I was just about to buy DoA 5…every day you and every month you guys take me further and further away from my once beloved X-box… =P

ak456456 23 February, 2013 @ 8:17 am   242

Any Lego game for PS3 or Vita will be awesome!

walk_moon 23 February, 2013 @ 8:40 am   243

when can we buy blood omen 2 on psn

MASPALOMAZ 23 February, 2013 @ 8:43 am   244

Hey, thats a great Plus Update with Mass Effect 3! Thanks.

You the best omg mass effect 3 im very happy thank you. πŸ™‚

Dirtyshubb 23 February, 2013 @ 9:00 am   246

Just a follow up to your question Chris, i personally would love some new Lego games to be put up, they are great games but i have been put of buying them since they nearly all glitch and thus mess up any trophy progression you have made, but if they were to be given out on PS+ i would still try my hardest to get through πŸ˜‰


Greate! Wanted to play MGS on Vita. And Mass Effect it is awesome. Any chance of Ninja Gaiden for Vita for Europe?

SuperJag86 23 February, 2013 @ 9:32 am   248

How about considering Sorcery, Goldeneye and Dyad in the future?

Atrainlan 23 February, 2013 @ 9:49 am   249

Hi Chris, Thanks so much for taking the time out to answer so many of these questions. To answer one of your earlier questions back at us – YES! We should definitely get some Lego Batman in here. One more game I am dying to play and would love to see on IGC for no other reason than the number of people it would bring into multiplayer would be Red Dead and Tokyo Jungle.

Thanks again, and thanks for another amazing month!


The only thing I am regretting is only having a ps vita and not a ps3, ps plus is still more than worth it even if you just one of the two. This is an amazing service!

Amine-Tet1 23 February, 2013 @ 10:32 am   251

Can’t believe it ME3 for free yay. Best update so far keep up the Great work guys.


I was going to buy Joe Danger πŸ˜€ Wow guys, thank you. Another fantastic update.


Love the vita stuff, bit disappointed to get me3 as its the third title in the series. How am I supposed to play the other games first?

Epic… I really didn’t expect to see DOA5

14 Days… tick… tock

OneManArmy--X-- 23 February, 2013 @ 12:40 pm   255

omg thank you so much sony <3
This is why i'll never leave the PlayStation
brand. And please crysis 1 for april πŸ˜€

OneManArmy--X-- 23 February, 2013 @ 12:42 pm   256

This my secondary account btw.

Blue_Boy1987 23 February, 2013 @ 1:02 pm   257

The addition of the MGS Collection alone
makes this month good for me. I do think
these games would be better on the PS3.
But it was only last week I asked for
the MGS Collection, so I’m quite happy
to see it appear in some shape or form.

So, another request: From Dust, would be
awesome. I understand that’s it quite old
and it wouldn’t be a big hit for lots of
other subscribers, so maybe newer stuff
like Dyad or (the soon-to-be-released)
Miami Hotline would be a better choice.


I love and loath you Chris, the IGC just gets better and better but you keep adding games I have only just bought. Anyway great work for this month, looking forward to DoA.

Quelgoth 23 February, 2013 @ 1:38 pm   259

Is there any chance for MGS HD Collection for PS3 in future PS+ updates? I’m somewhat dissapointed with this update, because I love MGS series and I wanted to buy MGS HD Collection for PS3 in near future. I don’t have Vita, so I count on you Sony. I would be happy even in case of some sort of discount for MGS games for PS3. Chris, please answer wheter any of these things will happen.

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 8:46 am    

    No we are not planning to put the PS3 version in Plus anytime soon, but I can ask teh question regarding a discount on it


great month for plus yet again, great variation in titles πŸ™‚

need to ask again how about disgaea 3 for vita this would be a fantastic title and the first rpg for plus vita.

MieszkoIV 23 February, 2013 @ 1:47 pm   261

Hey Chris!
Thanks for the great update.

I personally would like to see some nice jRPG on Plus, especially Persona series for PS3 which are already available in the US πŸ˜‰

And perhaps Eternal Sonata? I’ve been trying to get it but it’s quite rare and the whole idea of the game is quite interesting.


keywarrior17 23 February, 2013 @ 3:07 pm   262

Great games, many thanks for them. However are you planning a price drop on the vita memory cards as they are so expensive? My 16gb is full already not sure how I’m gonna fit mgs hd on there and don’t really want to delete anything. Also any plans for bigger memory cards?

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 8:50 am    

    Not really my area but I will pass your comments on to the relevant teams who look after hardware

Any idea how much HDD space Mass Effect 3 will take up? Don’t wanna buy Playstation Plus and then find I haven’t the space to download anything?

tokgubben 23 February, 2013 @ 3:26 pm   264

wow, I just bought ps+ and is blown away(thre only thing that sucks is that i tried to buy it while there was a discount, but wasnt able because of sony not excepting my credit card, but it worked once i input the information on my ps3 instead of my pc, weird.)

I have one question though: mortal combat did not show up anywhere on the ps+ “menu” on my ps3, but when i searched for it i found it in the store and could downaload it for free. Why? are there any more free games im missing?

Big props for the games we are getting, im a fool who didnt subscribe earlier! =)

tokgubben 23 February, 2013 @ 3:32 pm   265

Also: Is it safe to say that games that has already been offered for free through ps+, but removed, will not ever be offered again?

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 8:53 am    

    firstly that just sounds like a glitch in the system, I will look into it and secondly we will not recycle content

Stonesthrow 23 February, 2013 @ 4:03 pm   266

Mass effect is too much of a successfull series to be included in Plus imo, I can’t believe there’s still people out there that didn’t play this yet.. I would’ve prefered to see a less known RPG myself, and this is why I didn’t select RPG’s in the poll either.
In overall, I’d love to see more games that are less successfull and that 9/10 gamers don’t already (or are supposed to:p) own. Every one of the fullgames released for Vita, for example, have been vita exclusives, and I owned every one of them.
So that’s the thin line.. When they’re good selections I already own them, when not, I don’t really care.. So I’d love to see more ‘mediocre’ games that are still worth experiencing, not the big hitters that any self respected gamer should own anyway :p


Interesting update this next month. Now, you will make spend more money to buy a vita card to download MGS HD πŸ™‚

Ps-vita-gal 23 February, 2013 @ 4:27 pm   268

great update, for next month could it be possible to get Urban Trails ps vita, burning skies, lego batman .
dead island,

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 8:54 am    

    We are not able to use Dead Island as it is banned in a few territories. Urban Trials on the VITA currently has a 20% discount!

PlayStation + “simply the best”

mman1235 23 February, 2013 @ 5:14 pm   270

a “reasonable” PS+ update

probably the worst update in 2013 for me at least…
I already have ME3 (its actually quite a good addition to the PS+ collection)

and Dead Or Alive 5 is fine by me too
but Joe Danger seems to me a bit too small of a game to be added :/ but Ill have to try it out 1st than say what I feel about it πŸ™‚

I am still hoping for a stealth game like Dishonored or something to be added to PS+ and XCOM would be soooo awesome to also have one month πŸ™‚

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 8:56 am    

    I believe Dishonored would be a great game for Plus but it is currently not available in a few territories, we are working with the publisher to see if we can get this resolved so you never know!

robbenslb 23 February, 2013 @ 6:29 pm   271

I keep getting amazed every month by looking at Plus updates πŸ™‚

Great games as usual, even though I don’t own a PS Vita (yet)


I’d lote to get LEGO Lotr!


Don’t want any Lego games because they are always the same game with change of skin.

Brett4307 23 February, 2013 @ 7:32 pm   274

Holy crap this is awesome, keep up the good work guys!

extrasafeivy 23 February, 2013 @ 7:36 pm   275

LEGO games are ok but once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all. All have the same gameplay, take about 30-40 hours to finish off, I would recommend a more recent one. Either Lord of the Rings or Pirates of the Caribbean would be the popular choice I think.

As for other RPG thoughts:
Ni No Kuni would be my choice but I would say this is very unlikely since it released not long ago and is also in great demand still with limited supply. Otherwise Kingdoms of Amalur, Tales of Graces, The Atelier games, Two Worlds 2 or Risen 2.

How about Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale or Most Wanted if a racing game is demanded?

ChilliOne 23 February, 2013 @ 7:37 pm   276

Already have ME3 but not bothered as have huge backlog of games still. Great update, hope this type of top games continue. Would love to see Kingdoms of Amalur and I Am Alive.


Oh wow what a month. I already have ME3, but I’ll have to give the other 2 a go at least.

A few requests:

Dead Island
ICO/SoTC or another HD collection
Portal 2
Borderlands 2 (too soon?)
Dragon’s Dogma

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 8:58 am    

    Borderlands 2 is a little too soon and there are a few on your list there that aren’t actually currently on the PS network so we wouldn’t be able to use them

marko201183 23 February, 2013 @ 8:02 pm   278

i purchased metal gear solid hd collection last week and iam a ps + subscriber, is there anything you could do pleas?

marko201183 23 February, 2013 @ 8:04 pm   279

sorry please?

ChilliOne 23 February, 2013 @ 8:16 pm   280

The PS4 update got me thinking the other day, seeing the new Kill Zone game, has Kill Zone 3 been on ps+ yet, if not that would be a good addition. Agree with the comments above about Lego games, ok as a second game but not the main choice for a game.


Is there any hope that we’ll get PS3 version of MGS Collection in the future? Or maybe some discount during the Vita version giveaway?

ahmadjlal 23 February, 2013 @ 10:46 pm   282

i I agree with comment 98 games like lego batman and mafia it’s great games and everybody will enjoy it

fairliedaft 23 February, 2013 @ 10:52 pm   283

Well DOA5 will do for this month I guess. always feel so gutted when games come to PS+ that I already have and completed. Now I have to wait another month to see what we will be getting for April. Ah well.

Great month though, for Mass Effect 3 alone. To all those who haven’t played the franchise, get 1 and 2, discounted or not, and enjoy the third for free. A must have trilogy for anyone who even remotely enjoys gaming. And for the love of god, don’t do what my idiot friend did, and play the last of the series without playing the others first, it ruins the experience, since all your actions in previous games have a mass-ive effect (see what I did there?) on the story of the following games.


Another great set of games to play in March πŸ™‚ I do hope Sony can offer this kind of service for the PS4

KongsNutz 23 February, 2013 @ 11:43 pm   285

Hi Chris, first time commentator here,

I joined PS+ last month (Sleeping Dogs/Vanquish pushed me over the edge)
Loving it so far, great update for March but I have 1 question…

Can Mortal Kombat be reinstated for Australia for IGC? since we now have an R18+ rating and the game is coming to retail, a lot of people would be all over this.

naruto1913 24 February, 2013 @ 2:28 am   286

Sweet, always wanted to try Mass Effect 3 and Dead or Alive 5. Sony you guys are awesome! πŸ˜€

Ah I’m sorely disappointed that the MGS collection is only on vita, I’ve been sitting on the fence for the ps3 version for a while now. But this update is still pretty fantastic guys. Dead or Alive and Mass Effect were both games I had an interest in but never got around to purchasing. I’m honestly surprised at the amount of content that is consistently put out for us, that’s why I keep paying for the service!

critter44 24 February, 2013 @ 5:08 am   288

See, this is why I love Plus, great games every month that I probably wouldn’t ever play or don’t have the means to buy thanks 2 college commitments. And I can fall in drunk at 5am and see what games I’m gonna be playing for the next month, which is quite fun! πŸ˜€ You’re doing an amazing job lads keep it up!!!


To anyone asking for Kingdoms of Amalur, it really is mediocre and underwhelming. *boring quests, bar voice acting, terrible lack of music, bad graphics) heck it bankrupted a studio o_o.
Why cant we get Dragons Dogma (the expanded one, we dont want the original anyway :X) Chris? Ive seen you comment that you “cant” at some point, did they simply say no? (wont be replied to I know, but still, it would bother me if we got a mediocre RPG, or another shooter with RPG elements next time -.-)
seems odd that in most months when people repeatidly ask about contents/genres they get ignored, yet a few people mentino LEgo and you are all down for it.
Is this due to the poll and taking peoples actual suggestions onboard? will you be strongarmed from now on or will we have actual polls with games we’d like to see be implimented?

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:10 am    

    Dragons Dogma simply disc only so we can’t use it

    We are always looking at everyone’s suggestions. In the last 5 months I have noticed that Lego titles seem to come up quite a bit, they offer variety and an option for both young and old thats all

Viscera1900 24 February, 2013 @ 10:50 am   290

Excellent…. looking forward to try Dead or Alive 5….

pdanny_uk 24 February, 2013 @ 11:51 am   291

hi, new to PS+. When it says that Limbo and Sleeping Dogs will be leaving PS+ what does it mean ? i will not be able to play it anymore ? or it will not be free anymore ?

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:15 am    

    hello and welcome,

    Sleeping Dogs and Limbo will be leaving Plus on the 6th March.

    This does not mean you will lose them though. As long as you have them in your download list you will keep them for as long as you have your subscription.


POPTJ47uk 24 February, 2013 @ 1:44 pm   292

Thanks Sony! Looking forward to not only this, but also picking up PS4 as well! PS Fan Forever!:D

Hexahedronaut 24 February, 2013 @ 2:12 pm   293

@291 it means it wont be free anymore, if youve downloaded them your fine.

Hexahedronaut 24 February, 2013 @ 2:14 pm   294

Mass effect 3 eh I already have it but this should be out in time for the rumoured “last” piece of DLC for it.

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:16 am    

    Citadel is probably the DLC you are referring to? It comes out on the 6th March as well on PSN

Please, Journey for April? It would be perfect!

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:19 am    

    It won’t be in Plus in April but there will be a discount on it in March….more details to come

MaxDiehard 24 February, 2013 @ 4:41 pm   296

Regarding Lego games for the IGC, I’d like to see Lego Star Wars 3 and Lego LotR.

thegoodnamesgone 24 February, 2013 @ 5:24 pm   297

Looks epic man and i need to hurry to beat sleeping dogs and vanquish. while i all ready own mgs 2 and 3 i have yet to beat MGSPW so that be fun and DOA5 is going to be a joy


Another vote for LOTR (PS3) if you manage to secure a LEGO game in future PS+ updates.

And Chris, nice job on 46 replies πŸ™‚

intrigue169 24 February, 2013 @ 6:40 pm   299

Is there a way to buy playstationplus eu one year account if I live in the United States, Sony just loves you guys more than those of us that live in the States, You guys get your second game with a perfect 10 rating in the last 4 months in Mass Effect 3, the other being Batman

zora_link 24 February, 2013 @ 8:17 pm   300

Wow! MGS HD Collection for free, thats incredible!

Any word if this is coming to US members as well?


To subscribe EU plus without an EU credit card, you just need to create an EU account, and buy a membership card to redeem. You can find those membership cards on ebay (search for “ps plus eu”). Make sure you pick up the right country so the games are in English. UK is a safe choice πŸ™‚

Scuffy_P 25 February, 2013 @ 1:17 am   302

Typical. Gamer’s that actually support developers by, y’know, actually buying their games get sweet eff all once again.

Might start never buying PS3&PS4 games EVER, and get them relatively free with PS+.

Any chance you might support the “Core” gamer for a change instead of casuals who buy four games a year? PS+ is absolutely useless for people like me, and a total waste of money. There hasn’t been one single game Plus have made available that I have already got.

It’s always been Sony’s attitude. Screw te core gamer because we get their money anyway. So let’s reward the casuals and tweens who never spend anything. Crazy.

MA76_666 25 February, 2013 @ 6:50 am   303

Chris or Fred i found this in the saudi store :!/en-sa/games/binary-domain/cid=EP0177-NPEB00915_00-BINARYDOMAINPSN1

is this a glitch or our Sep GOTM ?…..thx

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:54 am    

    Binary Domain has been placed on the Saudi store as a replacement title for missing the Sep GOTM

MASPALOMAZ 25 February, 2013 @ 9:02 am   304

absolutely great update!!!!

can i download the Mass Effect 3 trial/1 hour version already now and then just “unlock” it on Feb 6 ? Or would it be a better idea to download the full 13 GB on Feb 6?

Thanks for this geat february update and I agree dishonoured would also be amazing in a future plus update.

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 9:55 am    

    You can download the trial but sometimes you can experience techinical difficulties with unlocking the rest of the game so my suggestion would be to wai until March 6th and download it

KillaT2501 25 February, 2013 @ 9:30 am   305

Excellent update, keep up the good work!

DiscworldDeath 25 February, 2013 @ 9:46 am   306

Chris, where can we make store search suggestions, such as being able to filter the store by publisher, say I only want to look for NIS America or Atlus published games?

The genre tagging leaves a lot to be desired. Persona 4 Golden isn’t listed as an RPG, for instance O.O


nice work! This simple things is what makes PS the best gaming console.

Demoplay86 25 February, 2013 @ 11:04 am   308

@Chris Howe
Could I get an answer to some of the question I asked on page 4.
I’m asking on behalf of a community so it would be nice to have any good news for them. Specifically regarding PSX releases.

AtomicEdge 25 February, 2013 @ 11:13 am   309

Hi guys, first up, a great update to the service. After Sleeping Dogs last month I convinced a couple of friends to sign up, and seeing all the vita games build up on my account, I got a Vita over the weekend!

One question about Vita games… A lot of the decent back catalog of Vita games has already been on the service, and the upcoming releases are not exactly numerous. Are we likely to see less popular Vita games coming to the service, or will we see newer games turn up than on PS3.

I would LOVE to see Persona 4 Golden on the service!

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 3:23 pm    

    We still have plenty of VITA games available to us that are excellent quality

    We would all like to see Persona 4 Golden on Plus but its unlikely anytime soon I would imagine

horizoNiki 25 February, 2013 @ 11:54 am   310

Scumbag PSN users.
You sell games – hey, the games are overpriced!
You just give games away – hey, you don’t support ‘hardcore’ gamers!
Sony, you just can’t win..
I, as for one, am really excited about february and march.

horizoNiki 25 February, 2013 @ 12:14 pm   311

I purchased Vanquish and Sleeping Dogs via Plus membership, will they leave my game collection and get deleted from my PS3 after they leave PS Plus in march?





@horizoNiki – No. Games won’t leave as long as you purchase them while they were free. You don’t have to download and install them just purchase (add to download list) and they’ll be there for you to play for the duration of your PS+ sub.

The only time they ‘leave’ is after the free period and they’ll go back to being whatever price they were beforehand.

GreenCOD 25 February, 2013 @ 1:01 pm   314

I made my very first comment on the first page asking a question & I just saw another first time poster on page 6 (who asked the exact same question) get a reply from Chris while I didn’t *sobs*

It seems like Action/Adventure has been the most popular genre for IGC & although it’s my favourite genre, variety is the spice of life!

LEGO games are a great choice since they’re universally fun & there’s also plenty of them to pick from too! Sport & racing ones like ModNation, SSX or NFS: Hot Pursuit/ The Run. RPGs like Kingdoms of Amalur, Dragon Age, Fallout, Elder Scrolls. Platformers like Sound Shapes & Rayman Origins. There haven’t been too many fighters either (at least not in Australia since we missed out on both Mortal Kombats) so stuff like SCV, MvC3 & BlazBlue (& maybe Mortal Kombat again for Australia?). Puzzle games like Echochrome or The Unfinished Swan. You can also mix it up a bit with some strategy RPGs like Valkyria Chronicles or Disgaea 4. They might not be for everyone but that’s the thing about IGC – it gets people to try out things they might not have otherwise!

Sorry to ramble – I’m bored! But thanks for reading & hopefully that was somewhat helpful.

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 3:22 pm    

    Apologies I did not intentionally miss your question out, there are just a lot to get through πŸ™‚

    As you would have seen from my previous response I have asked the question but I think it is unlikely now that we will be able to offer MK, sorry

pinkplaybunny 25 February, 2013 @ 2:43 pm   315

Dragon’s Dogma will be digital from April when the expanded addition is released. Will we still not be able to get it then for another reason, or will it then be possible?

Also why can’t we have Binary Domain, you gave it to Germany I want it too.

Also i’m so happy to hear we won’t get Dead Island as i bought it in your sale last year and haven’t had a chance to start it yet

Any of the Assassins creed games would be nice to have, I’ve only played the first one so far.

pinkplaybunny 25 February, 2013 @ 2:44 pm   316

    Chris Howe 25 February, 2013 @ 3:19 pm    

    Unfortunately we can’t just pick and choose what we want when we want it we have to spend a long time negotiating with publishers for these Plus deals so we can never say for certain whether we will or will not be able to place a game in Plus.

    Germany got Binary Domain as a replacement for Sleeping Dogs as this is banned there. If we were now to offer Binary Domain for everyone else we would then need to find a replacement title for Germany again. We strive to only offer content that is available in all regions so we do not run into that situation.

pinkplaybunny 25 February, 2013 @ 3:56 pm   317

I understand Chris and you do a great job negotiating these games, there have been a lot of good ones lately including sleeping dogs. I was just very hopeful of Binary Domain being one of our IGC this year πŸ™‚

Demoplay86 25 February, 2013 @ 4:34 pm   318

Please Chris. I understand you’re rather swamped but i’ve been asking some of these questions for months.
Love the update and appreciate it immensely but can we in AU please get more PSX releases? In particular World of Mana, Breath of Fire IV, Chrono Trigger and Suikoden 1 and 2? Other countries have had them for years =(
Also, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Acceleration of Suguri X-Edition, Counterstrike: GO, Arcana Heat 3, Derrick the Deathfin, Final Fight: Double Impact, Legasista, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon or Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels Plus? Any news on any of these?
And finally, Castle Crashers/Scott Pilgrim DLC? Will they ever come to Au? The Behemoth says it’s up to Sony.

Devils_Demon 25 February, 2013 @ 5:52 pm   319

Aw. I bought ME3 from EBay last week. Guess I can put it straight back up on it then.

As for Lego games. Sure, why not.


Quick Ps plus related question. When it says ‘access up to 65 games a year’ is that the maximum number Sony make available a year or the most you can download? Just wondering if there is any restrictions like that.

Project2insanity 25 February, 2013 @ 7:52 pm   321

@shagbat: Sony throw you in jail if you download all of them because you’re robbing them. My last week wasn’t pleasant in the cells… Seriously, though, there are no restrictions. I put every game on my download list (including those I already own) although I might make an exception if Lego Harry Potter comes around.

@Scuffy_P; I’m not exactly sure what you expect from Plus. You know what it offers, you can choose to subscribe or not to. I’m certainly not a ‘casual gamer’ yet I still find plenty value (in the smaller titles mostly). Already own Sleeping Dogs, Bioshock, Arkham City, Vanquish and Dead or Alive 5 on disc. I don’t have Mass Effect 3 but want to know something? I’m planning to pick up the trilogy regardless.

It’s rather simple, it has definite value but you’re best not to subscribe if you find none for yourself. Otherwise you’re like a bald man shopping for a comb.

MadMigsRSA 25 February, 2013 @ 7:53 pm   322

Chris Howe, have you had a read of my post – 180 – yet?
Would like an answer to it please.


@project2insanity, Thanks. That’s what I’ve been doing, putting pretty much everything through the cart even if I don’t end up downloading it yet. I was worried I’d hit a limit at some point, guess it feels too good to be true!

marmeduke 25 February, 2013 @ 8:45 pm   324

Hay Chris. Will the ME3 multiplayer also be free?

Project2insanity 25 February, 2013 @ 9:42 pm   325

@”Singstar_Spam”; Can’t you just settle on one ID? You are quite the propaganda machine. The only thing stopping people heeding your words is your own utter hypocrisy. You speak out against the ‘tyranny’, seem to think you are a revolutionary yet you hide behind your fake ID to cover the fact you subscribe to Plus. Not only that but at this point, I’d say it’s very safe to say you even resubscribed.

It’s been pointed out many, many times that Vita content does not affect PS3 content. Even it it did- Β£40 a year still gives you outstanding value. Get over yourself or get a Vita!


WoW. First Sleeping Dogs, Limbo, Quantum Conundrum…
Now Mass Effect 3 (I alrady played it, but I will play again πŸ™‚ ), Dead or Alive 5 and Joe Danger 2. I can’t wait April to see, what is going to be next. An FPS maybe? The Darkness 2? FEAR 3? Or I Am Alive? I can’t wait. πŸ˜€
I think it would be great if every games will be again avaliable in PSN Plus Network, because there are so many members, who missed some of them. For only a week or a month. πŸ™‚

DCsolidus 25 February, 2013 @ 11:33 pm   327

I do really appriciate the plus content regardless going for my 3rd year soon but should the North american plus users get something close to what is released for EU users on plus i mean that is a great list of games and then we get plants vs zombies… something seems off its a great game but those ones listed would certainly appriciated over here in NA

cooldudematt 26 February, 2013 @ 1:44 am   328

Someone else stated that you didn’t answer their question and I completely understand but I was wondering if you would mind letting me know your thoughts on my suggestions? Here is my list below:
Lego Games (Lord of the Rings, Batman 2, Star Wars 3)
SuperHero Games (The Amazing Spider-Man, MVC2, Kick-Ass, Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor)
Mirror’s Edge
PS1 Classics (Spyro, Tomb Raider, Crash, Rayman)
Avatars for PSN Profiles

The Last 2 either as free content or discounts?

Also, What are the chances of seeing more PS2 games come on to the store like: The Punisher, Ultimate Spider-Man, Crash Bandicoot titles, Spider-Man 2, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Futurama.

Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

MA76_666 26 February, 2013 @ 5:52 am   329

thank you Chris <<< a man of his word & a plus on PS+

MarcoFoxRoberto 26 February, 2013 @ 12:11 pm   330

I’m really happy with my Vita lately Chris. Playstation plus really has been paying off big time.

Thank you SCEE.


amazing, keep it up πŸ˜‰


i wish Assassin’s Creed for April πŸ™‚ …


Surprised and very happy with Dead or Alive 5 on Plus, can’t wait to download it and then buy Dead or Alive 5 Plus which I’ve already planned for my future PS Vita, you guys are fantastic. Good job!

GMG_Da_Punisher 26 February, 2013 @ 1:21 pm   334

Will we get a limited time dlc discount like when sleeping dogs was game of the month?

Really looking forward to DOA5, need to play something other than MK while waiting for injustice. Also very keen to check out Mass Effect 3.
Thank You guys, awesome Job as usual πŸ™‚

AtomicEdge 26 February, 2013 @ 3:57 pm   335

A quick question!

I know that since the launch of the IGC that you have moved away from Minis, PSP and PS One titles, but is it possible there will be a return to these at some point? There are a lot of PSP titles that I never got to play that have great reviews. Persona 3 Portable, GoW Chains of Olympus, GTA Chinatown wars to name a few.

Demoplay86 26 February, 2013 @ 5:49 pm   336

nucleargroundhog 26 February, 2013 @ 9:14 pm   338

Man this is badass. Been watching my housemate play ME3 last year, now I can finally join him.

Wish I had a vita though, really want MGS HD.

Mr_Savage11 27 February, 2013 @ 1:06 am   339

So disgusted with the NA ps+ We get a bunch of Vita games and plants vs zombies? Really? Truly disgusted. Too bad I can’t get my money back.

DeathKiller49 27 February, 2013 @ 2:14 am   340

You guys really should be grateful you don’t have US +… It’s a discrace compared to EU +…. I wish I had EU +… *Sigh*

Mantiskilla78 27 February, 2013 @ 4:33 am   341

Great deals for March. Man why don’t consoles have crazy sales like Steam and other PC providers more often. Hell one site is selling Sleeping Dogs and ALL dlc for less than $25 this week on PC. That’s crazy!

Asriel-Sama 27 February, 2013 @ 8:06 am   342

I read today that Peacewalker is now available for Vita as part of the MGS HD collection and the PSN store will be updating it as such. Does this mean that MGS HD collection being offered on PS Plus next month will have MGS 2, 3 AND Peacewalker?

tokgubben 27 February, 2013 @ 8:42 pm   343


CHRIS HOWE: I would really appreciate(and I belive many others too)a list of ALL the games that has ever been avaliable for free as a ps+-subscriber in europe.

So i can buy them(or at least the one that seem good;)

Thank you!

randomtrav132 27 February, 2013 @ 10:32 pm   344

Great Update.
Already own Metal Gear on Vita, but it’s always nice to have the digital as a back up in case I decide to sell it.

Can I suggest Way of the Samurai 4 as April content. I think games with a niche market are underrated and it would be good for the company as a marketing strategy as a brand.

But with any free game I’m Happy.

Thanks Chris. Plus is great!


Please help me with this urgent PS+ glitch.

I “bought” Dust 514 : Starter Pack for Free with my PS+ subscription.
I didn’t download it, just “purchased” it to have it in my download list for whenever I wanted to play the game.

But it is now not in my download list, and it’s listed as 9.99 Euros on the PS+ section in PS3’s playstation store.
(don’t have a PC currently to check the Webstore, just a PS3).

What’s the issue here?



Hello! Might I suggest some games for PS+’s future?

Demon’s Souls
Kingdoms of Amalur
Rune Factory Tides of Destiny! PLEASE!
Metal Gear Solid HD
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes
Okami HD
One Piece: Pirate Warriors
Ico & Shadow of the Colossus HD
Warriors Orochi 3
Record of Agarest War 2 / Zero
Zone of the Enders HD
Two Worlds II: GOTY
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune / 2 GOTY

(And of course, games from series like GOW, RE, R&C, J&D, AC, ME, PSASBR, LBPK, etc)

PSN Games:

Legasista, Rainbow Moon, Trine / 2, Journey, Megaman 9 / 10, Pixeljunk Shooter / 2, Fat Princess, Braid, Spelunker HD, Tokyo Jungle

Also, I really want:

-PS1 Classics (Please give 1 or 2 PS1 Classics each month)
-Please make an offer for PS+ Members for subscribing to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn when it launches.

Finally, about LEGO games. Some of the few games I can play with my girlfriend. Here’s a direct request from her: [“Please, offer a LEGO game or two. I’d love either Batman/2, Lord of the Rings, or Pirates of the Caribbean. Please NO any Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, or Star Wars, because we already have them. :p”].

Please keep up the great work!

counterUAVbaby 28 February, 2013 @ 7:07 pm   347

DEVILDANTE37 28 February, 2013 @ 7:51 pm   349

DAVEHUDSON 28 February, 2013 @ 9:31 pm   350

DAVEHUDSON 28 February, 2013 @ 9:35 pm   351

Really wish you would stop giving out games that everybody has -_- who doesnt have ME3? Infamous 2? ect ect…

DayzeeNL 1 March, 2013 @ 12:36 am   353

Nice update πŸ™‚ I don’t have Mass Effect 3 yet, but it definitely looks looks good and I can’t wait to try it πŸ™‚

I’m a fan of the Lego games myself, I enjoyed both the Harry Potter versions and Pirates of the Carribean. (The Star Wars version, not so much, even though I do like the movies!) I agree that they are fun and suitable for all ages, I love the sense of humour used in the games.

My vote goes to Lego Lord of the Rings, and Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes πŸ™‚

Also, thanks for Sleeping Dogs this month, it was a new game for me and I’m really enjoying it. Going to finish the story line and then an attampt at the platinum πŸ˜‰

YoungSMiLEZ 1 March, 2013 @ 3:10 am   354

Great update! And to think i only payed €37 for ps plus. And in 1 month i had it all back and loved ME3 but never got the chance to buy it. Also DOA5, im so happy with that one i started playing DOA2 on dreamcast and always loved the game. Gonna beat everybody with hayabusa.

But i have a question, will other GTA games come to the ps3 store?

Like LC/VC Stories, or maybe even GTA 1 & 2 with MP option would be really awesome if that ever came out on psn store.

DNF_Sniper 1 March, 2013 @ 10:58 am   355

Thanks, really great content this month, I don’t have any of the games apart from MGS HD on PS3 and now I’ll be able to play it on the go too πŸ™‚

YoungSMiLEZ 1 March, 2013 @ 11:16 am   356

Is it just me or am i the only EU PS PLUS owner without a vita πŸ™

DAVEHUDSON 1 March, 2013 @ 3:49 pm   357

whens this going to be on store as we didnt get a update this seek and today is the 1st of march any one know?

TheFistsOfAnElk 1 March, 2013 @ 4:36 pm   358

I have a few suggestions for games to be added to the Instant Game Collection:

– Uncharted 1,2 and/or 3
– Grand Theft Auto IV
– Dragon age
– The Saboteur
– Heavy Rain
– Singularity
– Dishonored
– Mirror’s edge
– Rage
– Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
– London 2012
– The Walking Dead
– NHL 13
– Flow

I’d like to see any of these games, but not Dead Island which was mentioned some time ago.

Is there any chance that some of these games will be added to the IGC, Chris?

rutger-theboss 1 March, 2013 @ 4:38 pm   359

where can I see how long I’ve psplus yet? and sleeping dogs will be removed?

PSYCHO-PATH1993 1 March, 2013 @ 4:43 pm   360

Mass effect 3, MGS HD, Joe Danger, dead or alive 5 gotta love PS Plus but I’m running out of memory on both the vita and ps3 gotta delete something but what to chose?

venneer 1 March, 2013 @ 5:02 pm   361

WOW. What a FANTASTIC update. I have both US and EU PS Plus accounts (this being my US account) and the content on the EU side has yet to disappoint. You guys are doing a fantastic job with the instant game collection. I’m definitely a satisfied customer. Keep it up!

DEVILDANTE37 1 March, 2013 @ 5:21 pm   362

ahh i take that back, its on the vita console plus page lol,

iESCUDO 1 March, 2013 @ 9:39 pm   363

I’ve asked last month for a Mass Effect 3 sale, you said “~You don’t know what’s around the corner”.


Waseem 2 March, 2013 @ 2:05 am   364

Chris please please look into the possibility of Netflix coming to EU store for the Vita. I know there are many bemused by it not being available, especially considering it has been out in the U.S for over a year. Its on EU ps3 and the app even works when downloaded with an american account, however this is at the expense of all our content.

No one has answered this, so many want it, please give us some kind of info!

Rohit45_G 2 March, 2013 @ 1:25 pm   365

This is the reason i got PS Plus!! Amazing offers!!

Cpt_Nutsaw 2 March, 2013 @ 9:46 pm   366

Any change that we might get Metal Gear Solid HD collection demo/s to try for PS3 soon? (It probably doesnt belong here but another question i had was when will the 3 Ninja Gaiden Sigma (PS3) be for sale on PSN, and will Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 be total uncut and full with blood, gore and violence?)

Dono7526 3 March, 2013 @ 5:02 am   368

Dear Chris, loving the ‘back at ya’. requested mgs hd collection, and you put it on the kin vita.
Note to everyone, don’t diss the Chris. coz you can ask but then will never receive. Can you try to secure mgs hd collection for ps3 in April. that be the bomb. hell yeah!!

Dono7526 3 March, 2013 @ 5:27 am   369

Anyone else up for snakeyness in April??? gotta love mgs

I have MGS HD Collection on disc for PS3, region 3 (Asia). Will transfarring work with this Vita version?

BabyDabes 3 March, 2013 @ 10:35 am   372

Im glad i didnt waste my money on a full year. sony seem to think we only want 2d scrollers or phone/tablet games for the vita. i want console quality games. wont be getting playstation plus again i dont think.

kazestorm2 4 March, 2013 @ 1:12 am   373

great update cant wait until wednesday

kazestorm2 4 March, 2013 @ 1:13 am   374

@babydabes how is metal gear collection a 2d scroller ? i swear there is no pleasing you people

Wimma77 4 March, 2013 @ 2:53 am   375

Would love MGS for PS3 too πŸ™

jdecraene85 4 March, 2013 @ 12:36 pm   376

Hi Chris,

I’ve been a PS+ member for some months now, and while every month has at least one item I’m happy with, I have to say this month’s update is truly fantastic.
Looking forward to playing MGS on my Vita!

Also, could you please consider one of the following titles for the coming months?
– Far Cry 3
– DmC: Devil May Cry
(now both available for 40-45 euros on online retail)
– Demon’s Souls
(since it’s has now been released on PSN)

Thanks for your efforts and keep up the excellent work!

shadow_walkerOZ 4 March, 2013 @ 8:45 pm   377

Sweet. This is the first time in close to a year that I didn’t already own virtually every game on offer.

moodypostman 4 March, 2013 @ 9:25 pm   378

for april dead space 2 or dead island in light of the new game coming out

moodypostman 4 March, 2013 @ 9:26 pm   379

skyrim for april?

moodypostman 4 March, 2013 @ 9:35 pm   380

would love to see the darkness 2 fear 3 or heavy rain πŸ˜€

“Typical. Gamer’s that actually support developers by, y’know, actually buying their games get sweet eff all once again.
Might start never buying PS3&PS4 games EVER, and get them relatively free with PS+.
Any chance you might support the β€œCore” gamer for a change instead of casuals who buy four games a year? PS+ is absolutely useless for people like me, and a total waste of money. There hasn’t been one single game Plus have made available that I have already got.
It’s always been Sony’s attitude. Screw te core gamer because we get their money anyway. So let’s reward the casuals and tweens who never spend anything. Crazy.”

That is why it is your choice if you pay for plus or not. Just bought a Vita and I’m getting lucky with the Plus games.
Don’t want “free” games? Buy an XBox

ManningEIRE 5 March, 2013 @ 12:49 am   382

Will the EU store be getting Spec-Ops like the US is getting?

DEVILDANTE37 5 March, 2013 @ 11:54 am   383

I`ve bought Rocketbirds hardboiled chicken for the ps vita, it uses the vitas features (touchscreen etc.) and has got online but only by “game invite” and is only about 5 pound 30 on plus sale

Any one else have it please add me

Sebbe_91 5 March, 2013 @ 11:58 am   384

Aw, no Spec Ops the Line? πŸ™

    Fred Dutton 5 March, 2013 @ 1:33 pm    

    Alas, that’s a US offer. Fear not, we’ve got plenty of great stuff planned for you over the next few months.

aros2011 5 March, 2013 @ 1:10 pm   385

DevilDante add me, I have RocketBirds and I agree, it is an excellent game.

    Fred Dutton 5 March, 2013 @ 1:34 pm    

    I’ve been meaning to check this one out actually, thanks for the reminder!

awildpackofAIDS 5 March, 2013 @ 1:47 pm   386

These are some great games to come to the service, it keeps getting better and better. I have a suggestion though if any officials read this, you should try and get RAG DOLL KUNG FU on the ps plus program for free. It’s my favourite game on my playstation and one of my favourites ever, just pure insane fun, me and my roommates play it bi-weekly and it would be amazing if more people discovered this and it got an online presence and multiplayer match ups. It’s buried deeeep in the ps store right now, even a sale would get it out there more, but ideally make it free, because i’m sure they aren’t getting any sales on it anymore.

oEXIEo 5 March, 2013 @ 1:54 pm   387

Nice work this month again Fred, although for once I’m jealous of what the US is getting. Any chance we’ll see Spec Ops or The Cave over here?
There’s some other games I’d like to see:
Starhawk (F2P maybe?)
Siren Blood Curse
I Am Alive

And this one’s a long shot, but just putting it out there: Far Cry 3 πŸ˜›

    Fred Dutton 5 March, 2013 @ 3:14 pm    

    Starhawk has already been on Plus, so it’s unlikely to come back. As for the others, you’ll have to wait and see!

evilwitch83 5 March, 2013 @ 3:05 pm   388

Is there any chance of getting Disgaea 3 Absence of Detention or the Cave on Plus over here?

I’d also love to see Catherine on plus as well.

Reaper450 5 March, 2013 @ 3:43 pm   389

A quick question, If I have the downloaded 1 hour trial version of the full mass effect 3 game, will it be unlocked on the 6th or will I have to re-download it?

fauxtronic 5 March, 2013 @ 4:07 pm   390

PLEASE file Playstation Plus posts in the playstationplus category. It’s just taken me ages to find this post. What’s the point of us bookmarking categories if you’re not going to use them?

gamer_king1994 5 March, 2013 @ 5:44 pm   391

When will GTA 4 be available for PS+ users? πŸ˜€

Firefly1005 5 March, 2013 @ 6:08 pm   392

I’m really hoping for some JRPGS such as Star Ocean or Atelier to come up.

supersmith2500 5 March, 2013 @ 6:35 pm   393

Question, anyone how much space is DoA5?

M_jobran 6 March, 2013 @ 12:23 am   394

Really nice

pirate_captain 6 March, 2013 @ 7:56 am   395

man mgs 2 and 3 loved those cant wait to play them on vita πŸ˜€


I’ve been waiting for the games to show up for free on the Spanish store since midnight (GMT+1).
Can anyone please tell me if you can see them? Must have logged in about 100 times already…

dRiVeRmG 6 March, 2013 @ 9:19 am   397

What time does the PS store get updated today? Looking forward to ME3, good collection this month!

Phredrik 6 March, 2013 @ 9:20 am   398

Nothing here either (Norway).

    Fred Dutton 6 March, 2013 @ 9:27 am    

    Hey everyone. The Store updates at the same time every week – at around 3.00pm GMT. Pro tip – if you search for the title, you’ll often see it live before then, as the listing goes live before the banner.

dRiVeRmG 6 March, 2013 @ 9:43 am   399

ME3 is saying it’s free to PS+ members but still charging Β£59.99 at the checkout at the moment. Not long to wait now.

    Fred Dutton 6 March, 2013 @ 9:51 am    

    Yep, give it a minute, it will take a little time to update properly.

dRiVeRmG 6 March, 2013 @ 9:46 am   400

If I download the ME3 Trial version, will I have to download the full version again or will it unlock?

FiresplitterX 6 March, 2013 @ 9:55 am   401

This is a wonderful list of games ^u^ I have already earned back every penny I spent on the PS3, PS vita and the subscribtion from the free games you have offered. ^^ I am pleased.

Now to my question and request. Is there any JRPGs planned for PS+? That would really please me. ^^

    Fred Dutton 6 March, 2013 @ 9:59 am    

    Nothing to confirm today, but we’ve certainly heard your requests for more RPGs and are working on it. Glad to hear you’re enjoying the service!

Nightmare966 6 March, 2013 @ 9:57 am   402

@dRiVeRmG: You can download the trial and unlock it later ;D

tokgubben 6 March, 2013 @ 10:22 am   403

To any of the moderators: I would really appreciate(and I belive many others too)a list of ALL the games that has ever been avaliable for free as a ps+-subscriber in europe.
So i can buy them(or at least the one that seem good;)
Thank you!

fallendogtags 6 March, 2013 @ 11:13 am   404

Please can you add Spec Ops: The Line. That game looks amazing and I really want to try it.


I second tokgubben’s request.
Specially now that I learned that previous PS+ games aren’t likely to return.

nerdrosh 6 March, 2013 @ 11:57 am   406

First of all – love that you guys managed to get ME3 – consider that a real coup! So kudos there!

As for Lego? To be honest, the only ones I’d personally be interested in would be Batman 2, and maybe LoTR. I think Batman 2’s Co-Op and Open-World would be pretty awesome, but as for the rest, I honestly think they’re a bit too linear.

One game I would absolutely love would be GTA IV. I miss that game more and more as time goes on, and with V delayed, it’s almost a perfect fit. Could we possibly get that?

Aside from my groveling, love your work. Maybe you could do a survey type-thing where people vote on what’s available, maybe?

liamlangan 6 March, 2013 @ 12:19 pm   407

Anyone started downloading any of the games yet, none of them have appeared on my store yet…

rickymendes920 6 March, 2013 @ 12:41 pm   408

what time is the update online?

Afr0Blu3 6 March, 2013 @ 12:45 pm   409

Guys, we’ve known it to take up until 7/8pm in the past. Technically they could put it live at 23:59 and they’ve still kept their promise of 6th March 2013. Besides, I can’t believe you’ve beaten all the previous Plus games. My backlog alone is huge!

Reaper450 6 March, 2013 @ 12:58 pm   410

Mass Effect 3 can now be “Purchased” for free if you search for it in the ps store, just did it to unlock my trial version, works no problems.

STORMxPYTHON 6 March, 2013 @ 1:26 pm   411

ALL march plus content is available if you search for it ive got joe danger movie already downloaded and dead or alive and a free map and mass effect 3 + loads of free expansion packs downloading now and the blog isn’t even up yet.

Void665 6 March, 2013 @ 2:11 pm   412

Wooohooo! MGS HD!!! Loving PS Plus!

ANy chance of Rayman Origins on Vita coming to PS Plus?

dRiVeRmG 6 March, 2013 @ 3:01 pm   413

@Nightmare966 Thanks πŸ™‚ Got a head start on the download. I also found God Of War HD on PS+ yesterday, which I was unaware of. How about a racing game? Haven’t seen many of those (Motorstorm and F1 stars don’t count, I mean for me not my kids πŸ™‚ )

frenchpoliser 6 March, 2013 @ 4:23 pm   414

Any idea where Joe Danger 2 is? Downloaded it earlier by searching as suggested. Turns out it was only a trial version. I have checked about ten minutes ago but still no joy.

Also, is it just me or does this game have extremely long load times? Is this normal?

MFFM92 6 March, 2013 @ 6:04 pm   415

(T__T) I was contemplating whether to buy MGS HD collection or LBP 6 days ago….and I bought LBP instead. Thank you, now i can finally play both since both are great games!! (T___T)

HardKase007 7 March, 2013 @ 1:49 pm   416

Is there a reason this isn’t tagged PlayStation plus like every other PlayStation plus update? I completely missed it because of this. Tags only work if they are used consistently.

DEVILDANTE37 7 March, 2013 @ 5:39 pm   417

i`ve had this “annoying” problem b4 lol. i think you have to re-enter the ps store and re download it (doesnt happen to all games) or you could try entering the game and then if its the trail it will say “buy full game” you could try it that way aswell

Dono7526 7 March, 2013 @ 6:49 pm   418

Ive downloaded mass effect 3 twice now and it gave me the 1 hour trial both times. how do you get the free full game?? would appreciate the answer if anyone knows. thanks

ZONE_1979 8 March, 2013 @ 1:45 pm   419

Does ME3 come with an online pass, or are we going to have to purchase that?

Love this months PS+

supersmith2500 8 March, 2013 @ 1:57 pm   420

Yes it does. All digital games with multiplayer will come with an online pass and will be enabled once you boot up the game.

ten-bucks 8 March, 2013 @ 8:25 pm   421

I got ratchet and clank q force and found out I would get motorstorm rc free. Still waiting for my free download code for motorstorm rc. Anyone else still waiting?

ThatLadPrecious 10 March, 2013 @ 12:57 am   422

Really disappointed metal gear wasn’t available for ps3.

Detsurasu 10 March, 2013 @ 3:02 am   423

Yeah, bring MGS: HD Collection for PS3, would be the best update yet! Don’t care much about ME3 or DoA5, but Vita got the best stuff! As for US update, Spec Ops and Disgaea 3 are top notch, wish we had that in EU.

Kraft_Killer 11 March, 2013 @ 4:57 pm   424

Esperando Rayman Origins (VITA) Sair na Plus… =\

daxterstarsriba 11 March, 2013 @ 7:50 pm   425

I’ve asked this many times before but I keep getting no answer, so I’ll keep asking again until I get an answer; When/will you be updating and adding more free exclusive avatars to PS+? There has been the same ones now for more than five months! Does it really cost that much to provide some new avatars with people’s subscriptionβ€”as advertised? Throwing in a handful of avatars each week would be really exciting.

IGC often has things that I already own and adding VITA on the same subscription has annoyed me a little as I’m paying for content I cannot even use. I don’t mind missing out on IGC some months (having some of the games already) because that’s fair game & known from the outset and I have had many fantastic games that I’ve been absolutely & incredibly delighted with!! Ty ^^

So can we have some new avatars, please! I look forward to your reply & thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,
15-year Loyal PlayStation supporter πŸ™‚

tommyv010 12 March, 2013 @ 11:31 am   426

Well Europe is getting better game while us in U.S, we get nothing cool like you, so you all lucky Sony is giving you good games worthy to play it.

KrackersUK 12 March, 2013 @ 11:38 am   427

I wanted to ask if there is anyway that we can vote for games that are coming in april? (Im hoping that max payne 3 will be avilable for download)

SULTAN_3 12 March, 2013 @ 5:17 pm   428

Chris can you please tell me when is it the “exact time” for the MGS:HD Collection will be available tmw in the 13th of this month .. as the time in Saudi Arabia bc I have to know ..


Hi Chris (and the team),

Thank you for your continued efforts – great cross section of games, and a great service!

I’d like to add a suggestion – please can we consider adding PSP/PS1/PS2 to the IGC? Perhaps one of each per month?

Particularly for the Vita, it would be a great way of adding huge engagement without having to spend on the bigger and newer games.

Really appreciate your efforts, and thanks again!

LawBreakerKSA 12 March, 2013 @ 8:55 pm   430

Sweet! really enjoying instant game collection on ps vita so far, keep it up

hayzink 13 March, 2013 @ 3:44 am   432

Bit gutted disgaea won’t make a future plus appearance as mentioned but glad your working on discount πŸ™‚

Roll on mgs today

hayzink 13 March, 2013 @ 3:46 am   433

And btw is there any chance of us ever getting the bloodrayne castlevania style game.

snedd28 13 March, 2013 @ 9:58 am   434

what time will metal gear be available to download in aus

sk8mart 13 March, 2013 @ 11:15 am   435

When is Metal Gear available in the UK? its 11AM on 13th March now and its still showing as Β£23.99 and not displaying on Playstation Plus section

CloudBelmont 13 March, 2013 @ 12:02 pm   436

Can’t wait for MGS Collection, anyone know when?


Nice, lovely to get the Metal Gear for the Vita.

And also please extend vita to get the remote play for all Ps3 titles πŸ™‚



mehsssi 13 March, 2013 @ 4:05 pm   439

I can download Metal Gear solid HD collection for free, but MGS Snake Eater HD for Vita is not free and has price tag of 11gbp. I don’t have enoguh space to download collection in Vita, rather want to download just Snake Eater… Can you please fix this?

Terry_Venables 14 March, 2013 @ 10:51 am   440

please no lego games they’re just multi platform shovelware games that everyone has alread played millions of times. I’m paying for plus to have unique, stand out classics when it come to the instant game collection. not for shovelware games that I wouldnt pick up in the first place like the lego games.

RaidenUchiha 14 March, 2013 @ 10:55 am   441

I know this sounds a bit “meh” but im quite annoyed at ps plus of late, first i bought MK9 Vita for 49.99 on digital release date then its up there for free, then i bought mgs hd for ps3 and vita 49.99 again then its free on vita 2 weeks ago i got Mass Effect 3…an now guess what…FREE i also pay 40 quid a year for plus on top of that to get a**e kicked for my trouble and told all the money i spent on those games i didnt need too and are now free. imo there should be a new plus feature if you have the games already hard copy you should be able to scan in the bar code or sin to get either something else or a discount. Hopefully resistance and COD declassified or Super monkey ball wont be making the next vita list if it does i have to say i wont be impressed.

hayzink 14 March, 2013 @ 12:03 pm   442

To the poster above

I’d say its time to reassess your buying habits, as a day one plus user there has been many months I have already owned the content but I still feel we get good value.
When I now buy games I ask myself will I be annoyed if this ends up free on plus and if the answer is yes I just pass on it.
With the amount of free titles we get I find I always have a backlog anyway so more often than not I don’t need to buy a game when it’s first out now and I can often pick up games when the price has dropped or its on sale.

Mastodon_Slayer 14 March, 2013 @ 4:02 pm   443

Where is the Metal Gear Solid HD for vita, free for PLUS?

stuntgman 15 March, 2013 @ 3:58 pm   444

Any chance of unfinished swan or the cave, I thin kAmerica have had both of these games

CyborgFoxPT 15 March, 2013 @ 7:29 pm   445

Great games as usual πŸ™‚

Will there be a sale/discount for The Walking Dead, for Plus members in the near future?

YOKOZUNA_MK 16 March, 2013 @ 8:32 pm   446

please do ninja gaiden sigma plus in april

theskillzy 17 March, 2013 @ 1:27 am   447

here is my hopeful games list for upcoming plus features all these games are a reasonable ask they dont cost much in ps store and are pretty old so please consider some for the next few months .. ps i know you hqave alot of requests and you cant please everyone but it doesnt hurt to ask right ?

resident evil 5
saints row 2
black ops
nhl 12
assasins creed 2
devil may cry 4
rainbow 6 vegas 2

i think giving these games on ps+ will encourage users to buy the newer versions they are all good games and should be easy to secure

thx for reading

hayzink 17 March, 2013 @ 3:52 am   448


both resident evil 5 and saints row 2 have recently been part of the igc so as Chris stated before he won’t be repeating titles you are unlikely to get these again.
There is not a digital version of devil my cry 4 on the store do that wont happen.

theskillzy 17 March, 2013 @ 9:54 pm   449

oh ok iv only been on ps+ for a couple of months and i havnt looked at the list …. res evil 6 and saints row 3 havnt been on i take it πŸ˜‰ lol i wish

thx for the reply hayzink

BassMunkee 19 March, 2013 @ 4:23 pm   450

I know move users are a minority.. but is there any chance of seeing a move game in IGC?
I thought the move was completely abandoned but seeing it in the PS4 conference gives me some hope. Lets hope there are some games in development which support it.
Just to be clear, I don’t want to start off a casual vs hardcore gamers war. The best move experience I have had so far was with the Table Tennis game in Sports Champions. The other games were also pretty good there πŸ™‚

GHO5T-8-12-80 19 March, 2013 @ 10:23 pm   451

Can we get maybe killzone 3 or fight night 4 and also gta san andreas an why cant we get metal gear solid hd collection on plus for ps3 its only for vita

BernardoOne 22 March, 2013 @ 11:53 am   452

I would love Lego games on plus πŸ™‚
