    I liked EU Vita selection more, but then again Limbo its a game I really want to check out. Also the US gets Skullgirls which looks really fun. I say its a tie where everybody wins.

  • Rafael Martines

    Well… time to play Skullgirls…

  • Go2hell66

    :O Muramasa Rebirth…

  • jealous of muramasa for eu…

    • Setsu Oh

      what goes around…. and you can sign for plus eu too u know

      • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

        But then he’d have to create a new account, go through memcard swapping, have two different sets of trophies to worry about, two PS+ subscriptions to pay for, etc, etc. Not really a good deal~.

        • Setsu Oh

          + is always a win. no matter the country.
          i was + twice last year.
          got a xmas of fighting incredible.
          just stop buying dew and chips, you ll get 50 bucks real quick.
          worth everypenny but slower than normal(some games overlap)

  • urbanscholar

    Guys. Puppeteer is a nice game & will remind of why you like platformers.
    The acting is top notch and the humor is on point. If you want a game to have you laughing and smiling as you play it’s Puppeteer no doubt.

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      But I already have the game that reminds me of why I like platformers! Donkey Kong Country :c

  • neo_firenze

    Puppeteer is incredible and went sadly under many people’s radar. Just a fantastic game, don’t miss it.

    • Rafael Martines

      Couldn’t agree more… at first I didn’t like, but, after some gameplays you start to enjoy the environment of the game :P Pikarina <3

      I really enjoyed getting this platinum :)

  • Zeonsilt

    It’s Payday 2 for Europe,not the 1st.

  • Will this be in the whole month of May? I won’t be able to get a PS+ until around the 28 T_T

    • Charles Parker

      Most of the stuff tends to stick around through one more month cycle so anytime within May and you should be Golden.

      • That’s good, I want to get Skullgirls and Muramasa Rebirth.

  • shuyai

    fick i want muramasa but my PS+ expire 1 day before 30th and since i only mostly play single player jrpg there is no point for me to renew it till i buy a ps4

  • D. Collins


    • The Watcher

      as long as you have PS+ ;)

  • otakumike

    I own skullgirls and limbo but the rest look good. I honestly don’t care about the games I get anymore, I already have too much to play. xD

  • shadowneko003

    Already have Puppeteer. Good thing I only paid like $7 for it.

  • Why Limbo?! Bah, it hurts to know that I already own all those games. Except for Limbo, which I didn’t care for. Oh, well. Waiting for June.

  • z_merquise

    I bought Muramasa Rebirth day one (huge Vanillaware fan, gotta support them, y’know. And Aksys too). EU members are in for a visual treat, the game is such a beauty in Vita. Plus, I love the fast-paced combat too. It’s worth it!

    And it’s good that more people can get to play Skullgirls too. I think it’s really an amazing fighting game and with very amazing animation. Don’t forget that the 2 available DLC characters are free in a limited time so go get it.

  • Earthjolly

    Puppeteer is great. Bought it for $20 dollars last black friday. Limbo though is crap

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    Lame more free indies for US. Ever since I got a Vita for Xmas I been disappointed with the free games. Gravity Rush is the only one I kept

  • Tinye

    I really like this month of PSPlus sweeet!

  • Bobby Jennings


  • Charles Parker

    Stick it to the Man looks pretty fun.

  • pokeroi

    Maybe it sounds like a jerk, but….Glad I didn’t buy Puppeteer last year…I knew it’s gonne be on PS+ one day. Actually, that’s why I stop buying PS3 games…

  • Prinny Dood

    To bad skull girls can’t be on the vita

    • The Watcher


  • 3PointDecoupage

    Cant wait for Puppeteer. The demo was awesome.

  • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

    Fuck you Plastation Plus+! I am never buying a discounted game again. Every time I do, it’s free a month or 2 later.
    Every motherfucker that falls for this bullshit.
    *ends rant*

    • Byron Kerrison II

      Sometimes it’s just a straight price change for me.

      I buy a game the week before and BOOM. Price change.Usually they take -$20 to -$40, leaving me feel cheated… QQ

    • The Watcher

      At least you “own” your game that you got for a discounted price, worse case scenario if you stopped using PS+ for whatever reason at least you still got your game. Cheers.

      • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

        You see, I never intend to get rid of PS+, so for me it’s not an issue.

  • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

    Super jealous of Skullgirls. Would rather that than Muramasa or Everybody’s Golf… Hate how we only get 2 PS3 games each Plus update.

  • Byron Kerrison II

    The one time a PS3 game I actually want is on PS+ BEFORE I buy it.

    It’s Showtime!

  • Guest

    This time I really envy EU … I will gladly change Skullgirls with Muramasa !! Muramasa > Skullgirls Always !

  • Hinataharem

    Oh! Puppeteer! I always wanted to try that.

  • Senka

    Another positive point about Puppeteer is that it appears to be heavily influenced by Dynamite Headdy from the Sega Genesis. If you liked that game, you should love this one.
    Only downside is that gameplay doesn’t generally change with heads like it did in the Genesis game.

  • Duo Maxwell

    Just a reminder about Skullgirl: there is DLC for this game that is free RIGHT NOW but won’t be by the time the game is free. Buy it now and play it when the game is free.

  • SWEET. Always good deals every month. Still, I was hoping to get Muramasa but no matter… Puppeteer, here I come!

  • LustEnvy

    I would prefer Muramasa. :(

  • Chris Evan Jonance Ingeniero

    ugh i wished the skull girls is for vita~ been wanting to try it out but i cant put money in it since its not my game genre

  • SeventhEvening

    I’ve had Skull Girls since before encore. But I’ve been wanting to play Puppeteer. I wish that Stick it to the Man was the PS3 or PSV version instead. I guess I’ll download the PS4 version for later anyway, like I have been doing. I’ll have a lot to play once I finally get a PS4.

  • Hector Velar

    hecks yeah, I have it on 360 now skull girls on PS3 :D!!! WOOOT WOOT

  • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

    Kinda peeved I bought Puppeteer a few months ago on disc, haven’t had a chance to play it until recently, and then… bam, free for this month. D:

  • Anthony Hadow

    As nice as this is I could care less about PS Plus. If I wanted to rent games I would get gamefly then at least i would get my choice of console ect.
