Sony Is Giving Vita And PSP Games With PlayStation Plus In Japan

By Spencer . October 25, 2012 . 3:32pm

image PlayStation Plus includes a decent instant game collection with new titles added every month. If you’re in Europe you can snag Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, MotorStorm Apocalypse, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, and eight more games. The King of Fighters XIII, Double Dragon Neon, and Infamous 2 are some of the free PlayStation Plus games in North America.


Japan has a whopping three free PlayStation Plus games – Sonic the Hedgehog, Minnya no Golf (a putting game with Toro), and Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty. Starting in November, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will offer at least 11 games to new PlayStation Plus subscribers. New titles will be added each month with a target of 55 games within a year.


The initial PlayStation Plus Japan re-launch line up is a bit different from the West. Sony added PSP titles and Sumioni: Demon Arts, a PlayStation Vita game.

    “Japan has a whopping three free PlayStation Plus games”

    Haha, you sound so bitter. :P Well, at least SCEJ is finally getting off their butts. Better late than never, I guess, but they still have a long ways to go to catch up with their Western counterparts.

    Wow, does PS+ cost as much in Japan as it does everywhere else?  In North America it’s been a huge value from the very beginning.

  • Red Veron

    It sounds like Japan’s PS+ is actually worth something now. I’ve heard that it just really doesn’t compare to US and Europe. Glad to see Japan getting something great for that value considering how much everything is more expensive there.

    I love playstation plus and I would marry it, if it gave me free vita games.

    Wasn’t aware it was so bad in Japan, makes me feel a bit better about some of the stuff in America. Though generally I’m happy, but looking at Europe it’s crazy.

    Anyhoo, Ape Quest isn’t even on NA PSN anymore, so we definitely won’t be getting that in NA when Plus comes to PS Vita next month. xP
