  • Yes. Yes, this is good. I want some Mega Man on my PS3.

  • OverlordZetta

    Gosh, that sure is nice.
    Now how about making them Vita-capable already?

  • I’m sure this Megaman pack will be for this week only. Get it while it’s hot, folks! Also, try and get Tokyo Jungle before the store updates! It is awesome!

  • Should’ve been that way at release, honestly.

    I think I got MM9 alrdy, the trophies of 9 & 10 are so hard.. PS Plus has really good values these days, w/ free full PS3 & Vita games (SS4 Arcade, KoF13, Bioshock, Infamous 2, Uncharted GA, Gravity Daze, etc) .. at the beginning they gave mostly d/lable games, PS mini, and free avatars/themes.. funny the Megaman pic is the Jpn ver, not the US spoof cover :)

  • Göran Isacson

    Part of their attempt to spread Megaman-love, I presume?.

    Actually. Capcom isn’t bringing them free to Playstation Plus. Sony is. The text sounds like Capcom is doing something like this out of the goodness of their heart when Sony is paying for that content to be free for PS+ members.

    Joined 2months ago. awesome investment. hard to play through em all and clear space on HDD lol. Now Sony just has to lower price on vita cards.

    • Aoshi00

      I have to keep clearing space on my HDD too, didn’t have enough for Infamous 2, it was like 15 Gb *.*;.. but yeah PS Plus is really worth it in recent months, so many free games. I used to like XBL a lot, but they gotta do better w/ just ads, and the Deals of the Week are just weak :(.. Not too crazy about the new PS Store’s layout though.

  • I presume this is a US only deal? Please note down wich region it is next time. Why I presume this is due the tuesday update. But still better to be clear on it.

    • Elvick

      As far as I know it’s NA only. Given people were complaining about it on the PS Blog, and comparing it to Europe’s update and how this update is terrible and Europe gets better content.

    • Zero_Destiny

      Siliconera notes the region for the news at the top of each article, this is a US deal since at the top you can see the US region and nothing else. So with that and since the article doesn’t go into details about it being available any where else then it’s pretty safe to say yes US only.

  • Elvick

    Wish they’d put the DLC on sale with them being free. I have the games, I would like to have the DLC though.

    • Same here since I tend to buy a lot of games new anyway. But I think it’s sort of a strategy for them. Banking on the idea that if people like the game enough they will shell out the extra cash for the DLC. I’m not sure how well that strategy works though, but I recently bought Space Marine (free plus copy) DLC for extra maps in Co-op.

      • Elvick

        Well, if I were originally getting the games free I would maybe consider the DLC at full price.

        But since I bought the games already, and have been waiting for a sale on DLC… I’m still left waiting. ):

        I think it’d be even easier to sell the DLC if they put it on sale. That would showcase the DLC in the store with the game itself.

        I can’t remember if there’s a link to the DLC in the games or not…

  • MM 9 and 10 are great games. Already have em but I’m glad other people that didn’t and were interested get to play. GoW Ascension beta should be entertaining for about an hour or so for me.
