    Playstation Plus is just keeps on giving!

    • k.b.a.

      it’s funny because over on the blog, you’ll find people complaining.
      Either they want more Vita games that aren’t PSP or Indie titles, or more in general because I guess they don’t own PS3’s.

      And over on the console side of things, people want Kingdoms of Whateverabutt, [in all seriousness, i’m sure it’s a good game, but it’s simply never crossed my mind.] Far Cry 3, and Assassin’s Creed 3, moar sales… and to complain about what the EU/Japan gets.

      I find it all pretty ridiculous most days. If you want it so bad, sign up for that EU account! And alot of titles they give out are things i’d rather own to be honest. Ico and SOTC HD I plan to buy and haven’t yet, so playing them again via plus is just great. +1million

      • ddh819

        you would have to get plus on EU PSN also though right?

        • k.b.a.

          would that be the worst thing? i personally am planning on doing it. 100 a year is steep, but what is that? less than the cost of two new triple A titles. and i’m getting so many more games through plus, exception being the few that both EU and USA share, which is enough to warrant possibly splitting the account with a friend.

          the only reason i’d wait is i’m in need of a new phone… pc, couple of consoles old and new,handhelds as well, steam winter sale, kickstarters, street fighter 25 anniversary box, injustice collector’s edition, some gotys from years past, surface [pro/[2]], fightstick, zunes, shoes…

          • ddh819

            no it wouldn’t be the worst thing, it just hadn’t occurred to me to do that and i wanted to make sure that’s what you’d have to do

  • Learii

    oh man ps+ just getting better and better every months I can’t wait to play kingdom of amalur
    did shadow of the colossus go free before?

    • Aoshi00

      Just Ico free before, so w/ SoTC we get the whole collection. there’s actually too many free games for my HDD lol.. I couldn’t get into Sine Mora on the 360 though..didn’t like the time limit..

      • Learii

        oh was ico lol they both look the same so I don’t know the different lol

  • z_merquise

    This is great. I really wanted to try Hotline Miami while Shadows of Colossus is a game that I totally missed in PS2 so this is the perfect chance to finally try these games.

    • NeoAthanasius

      I finished “Hotline Miami” on PC, and it was great. I’m totally ready to play it again on Vita. It has such a jamming, and often creepy soundtrack.

    • $36487238

      Actually dood, you will like Shadow of the Colossus on HD now. I remember when my bro and I tried it, we were like, “why is it so lagging?!”. Turns out, the game is so beautiful and boundary-pushing that the PS2 just couldn’t keep it smooth. I’m surprised when I saw videos of SotC when they released it for PS3 in HD, I was amazed. Now it was smooth!

      You will not be disappointed. And as for Hotline Miami, BOOYTAH! I played it already on PC but hey, don’t mind if I play it again on Vita. The new mask awaits me! Yup, you’ll love the game too. Just a tip: use the masks you feel will get you closer to your goal. Or just kick ass however you want ;-D

  • KuroNathan

    Oooo Sine mora. I actually own the game on steam but it doesn’t run very smoothly so this’ll be a great time to play

  • Always wanted Kingdoms of Amalur and Hotline Miami. Sucks that my subscriptions ends in October (>_<)

    • Aoshi00

      You should renew now. If you’re in the Gamers club at Best Buy, you could get another year of Plus for $40 (today Sat is the last day of sale). Use that card on PSN to renew now (until 10/29), and they’re giving another $10 back later, so it’s like $30 for getting another year of Plus :)

  • isotrex

    Hahaha. Sine mora and hotline miami for me.

  • TheExile285

    Hotline and Amalur for me.

    • Learii

      i with you girl

  • And here I was just about to buy KOA. Sweet!

  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will be good to play so I’m happy it will be out this month for free. I already got Shadow of the Colossus which is one of the game I call a must play Hd game.

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Amalur was a good up until I came across this bugged quest early on in the game which permanently disabled fast travel. -_-

  • Niceneasy92

    SON OF A BITCH. I just bought Amalur… :(

  • mockturtle

    “Sine Mora…”




    I tried the demo on both PS3 and Vita and it didn’t look or play as good on the latter. Color me disappointed.

    • TheExile285

      I own the game and it plays fine on Vita for me

      • mockturtle

        Well obviously I can’t argue with free, but I’d prefer the PS3 version. Personally I thought the Vita controls were inferior.

        • TheExile285

          Really? Theres 5 control schemes and i can’t see anything that would be largely different with a dualshock.

          Did you use one of the touch screen control schemes?

          • mockturtle

            No, I used the thumbsticks. Which seemed to me less responsive than the Dualshock’s thumbsticks.

            Which now makes me think it’s a problem with my Vita, if anything…

  • ragingmerifes

    Hotline Miami is amazing.

  • Solomon_Kano

    SotC, Sine Mora, and Hotline Miami? Niiiiiiiiiiiiice.

  • Fitzkrieg

    Man, I’ve been wanting to play all these games.
    Except for SotC, but I’ve already played it.

  • Eric Harris

    I’m glad I didn’t wait til PS4 to activate. Now I have ICO and SotC.

  • Eric Harris

    My $40 PSN+ card purchase has already paid for itself in less than a month. ICO + SotC, Saint’s row 3 I would have bought anyway. + a few more already that I will probably play since they are free.

  • AoNoise

    I was ABOUT to buy SotC since ICO was put up for free this month, but now…

    Sony, you rock. You rock quite hard.

  • notforsale

    Shadow of the Colossus is the best game ever made, 10/10 imo

  • Rafael Budzinski

    …I don’t argue with the selection, but at least for Vita owners, I think the EU selection is better. Unfortunately…

  • ddh819

    i had just bought hotline miami the day before they announced this. it is a great game, but it had me going “doh!”
