PlayStation Plus to Receive 12 Blockbuster Games For Free

Several months before E3, there was speculation pertaining to Sony introducing a considerable revamp to the PlayStation Network’s premium service, PlayStation Plus. Surveys suggested that a three tier system would be applied and Sony has now confirmed the aforementioned new features will come into fruition. - PSLS (E3, PS3, Tag Invalid)

Thank god I have a PS Plus subscription.
LOGICWINS  +   1148d ago
Wait...so is this going to be a normal thing from now on? Will we be getting FREE PS3 games with our PS Plus sub every month?
Hoje0308  +   1148d ago
Yes, Plus rocks!
Godchild1020  +   1148d ago
Make me think about my Purchases now. Why pay 60 dollars when down the line I might/will end up getting it free.

I have Plus, so I'm excited for this.

They said overall 12 blockbuster games thts insane.
MrMister  +   1148d ago
I dont know, but we've already been getting free games as it is. Just last month, we had over $50 worth of free games--even though the subscription itself (for a whole year) is the same price. So getting even MORE games (AAA games like Infamous 2) will make it even more worth it.
-GametimeUK-  +   1148d ago
I would subscribe, but unfortunately it said it was available in "NA". If they bring this quality of free games to the EU store I will subscribe. I want some Infamous2 in my life.
hasj1990  +   1148d ago
They are, its been confirmed on Twitter by the guy that updates the EU store, forgot his name. But he said more info will come tomorrow.

Glad I didn't spend my 18 bucks today. I thought it was gonna be something mega, unless this isn't all they are announcing. I have all of the games they're giving for free :(. I guess I will use this money to pay off credit card bills. Unless they give us something else tonight.
Snookies12  +   1147d ago
How is this not mega? It sure as hell is for people who don't have a lot of those, and how can you have all of them? Virtua Fighter 5 isn't out yet.

Though you do know it changes every month right? So other free games will be put up after these. Meaning as long as your + subscription lasts, you'll be getting more and more free games like Infamous 2, LBP 2, and JC2. Not sure what they have lined up later down the road, but that's REALLY promising.

tbh im kind of pissed off. i thought that the cloud gaming thing was going to be announced so i purchased the 3 month subscription for plus. if it weren't for the last of us, battle royale and god of war this conference would have stank.

Incredible games to boot.
cpayne93  +   1148d ago
Holy Crap. Infamous 2 and lbp 2. HOLY CRAP. I was just about to buy Infamous 2. This will be awesome.

Edit: @FatOldMan when they said huge stuff was coming for ps+, I decided not to buy anything until it was announced. Glad I did.

Edit2: @MacUser1986 no it isn't crap. But my reaction is still holy crap. But this is awesome.

Heck I don't own saints row 2 but I'm just more interested in lbp2 and infamous 2. But I'll get that too. Hmm... They all end with 2...

I already bought Infamous2 early this week.
Oh well, was still worth the price... but it was a bit odd of them to do that.

Guess I'll just be enjoying SaintsRow2 then.

After i saw the LBP2 vita connectivity, i thought i need to get lbp2 again, then they announce itll be free tomorrow, great time to have psplus
ABizzel1  +   1148d ago
It's time to trade Infamous 2 and Little Big Planet 2 in.
vickers500  +   1148d ago
Already have I2, SR2, and LBP2, but it's nice to have digital versions of them so whenever I want to play them, I can just run them off of the hard drive instead of wearing out my bluray laser. Plus, it allows me to be lazier and not have to get up to switch discs :)
Ducky  +   1148d ago
It's too bad there isn't a feature to just copy the game off the physical disc if you own the digital version.

Would save me some bandwidth.

@FatOldMan

Yeah, that would be nice, but I think people would just abuse it and give their friends free copies of a game and the devs might lose out on sales.

because i made the decision too buy it.if i would have waited i would have got it for free.so basically its my own fault.i cant get mad at Sony but i like the ideal of what Sony is doing with PS+.
Elwenil  +   1148d ago
Who could have known? Either way even if you paid for one recently, with 12 games there is bound to be something cool you can have for free that will make it worthwhile. I just beat Infamous 2 a day ago so I'm not real excited about that game being given away but if nothing else you can sell your hard copy and get something that way.
coolasj  +   1148d ago
Never...
NEVER, buy anything before E3.
neutralgamer19  +   1148d ago
I heard infamous 2 and lbp2 and went crazyyyy. Wow ps plus is the sh..

No, you can subscribe anytime and still get all plus offers.

I think Just Cause 2 is one of the 12, it was shown at the time. Stood out to me because I've been meaning to pick it up.
DarkBlood  +   1148d ago

So what was all them cloud gaming rumours about?
IHateYouFanboys  +   1148d ago
am i the only one who heard him say "$5 a month"?

he definitely said it, but im not sure if he was saying that it costs $5 a month ON TOP OF the PS+ subscription to get the "free" games, or if PS+ overall is $5 a month.

anyone catch it?
chiefdog11  +   1148d ago
I caught that as well. I assumed he just meant PS+ is roughly 5 bucks a month.
mastemikegee  +   1148d ago
$5 a month is what he said but he's obviously wrong coz that would be $60 a year instead of $50!

Did he say 'less' than $5 a month?

READ THIS FOR PLUS INFO
As you might of heard, with Plus we're getting 12 Top games this month alone. And just to clarify, in case no one noticed; The games shown around the screens will probably not be the ones for FREE.

Why?
Because he said '12' games and around the screen there were '10' games + the other '3' shown. That would be '13' not '12'. I believe those games were just a reference as to what is on the PS Store.

Why would they show all games at once and then reveal the first 3 released for last on screen? Think about it.
MrBeatdown  +   1147d ago
I caught that too. There were 13 because Warhammer was shown twice. There were ten images, but it was for nine games. Infamous, LBP, and Saints Row makes 12.
mastemikegee  +   1147d ago
Seems I was wrong after all! And I'm happy I was wrong coz some of those games I really wanted them and now I got them :)

I guess they showed the best 3 (or Top 3)last not the first 3 lol.

I understood it that there would be 3 games every week for the whole month. Not 12 at once!! Unbelievable offer that's for sure.

GET PLUS NOW IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT!!
blitzd76  +   1148d ago
awesome ps plus free games real games not those cheap ones lol
taijutsu363  +   1148d ago
Wonder if ive already played all 12 of those blockbuster games.... I know i already played the 3 theyve shown.
PLAYER5095  +   1148d ago
so whats this $5 a month premium plan?
supraking951  +   1148d ago
lol MS outsells competition every month, makes more money yet they cant give users anything this big for free.
Soldierone  +   1148d ago
Whats up with the 5 dollars a month deal? 3 months of Plus equals out to a little over 6 dollars a month....I should have just waited and bought 3 single months instead then?
MrBeatdown  +   1147d ago
My guess is, it was just an average for simplicity's sake. It's $6 a month for the three month subscription. It's $4.17 per month for the 12 month subscription.
Soldierone  +   1147d ago
I wonder if they will change it then, since it would look better if it was 14.99 or just 15 dollars for 3 months instead of 17.49 (Thats what the cards always charge me at the counter)
leemo19  +   1148d ago
Been looking for a reason to sign up for plus again. Though getting full retail games is great, kinda was expecting something else new for plus like ps2 greatest hits certain games for free. To bad it wasn't Saints Row 3 cause it's the only one with trophy support and the funnest one out of them all.
th3_d3an  +   1148d ago
WOW MS can keep pimping itself out to developers ill wait a month or so for the dlc and demos with deal and online service like this who cares!!!
Robotronfiend  +   1148d ago
Oh boy. I need a PS+ discount for a new hard drive now.

I just bought RDR:GOTY on the ultamite sale and thought, "Well i'm good for a while".

Seriously Sony, if it weren't for some of those free games being co-op, I think my wife would end up a PS3 widow. Now we can play R&C together.

All the old games in my backlog who were hoping to get played soon are going to be very sad. I swear I'll finish you soon Enslaved!
TheCopyNinja  +   1147d ago
I'm ready for the free games. My 500gb hard drive is gonna be put to use.
mastemikegee  +   1147d ago
My 500gb hard drive isn't enough! How the hell did i fill it?

It's not full of music/photos I swear!

A lot of videos yes, but not that much...

Ah... the damn HDD installs!!

GT5 took up 15gb alone. And to make it worse, all these games amount to 64gb+!!
Omnislash  +   1147d ago
Im still waiting for this!! I looked at the PSN store and nothing is there!!
