Almost bought Outland, glad I didn't
WildArmed  +   1078d ago
Same. I've had the money sitting on PStore for Outland for awhile, but I was always like "I'll buy it once I finish my backlog"

My backlog saved me monies :D
Emilio_Estevez  +   1078d ago
I would never buy new games if I told myself that. My backlog just keeps expanding, I can't help it! Another new one should be here this week :) , or maybe :( - not sure which face to use.

I bought Outland right from the main menu of the demo and it was well worth it. One of my favorite downloadable games. Let me know if you guys (Emilio or Skv) want to play Outland co-op.

I've been wanting to try Bloodrayne: Betrayal so good thing I held off on buying it.

It's very tough at times.
DaReapa  +   1078d ago

Tough, but rewarding. Need more like it.
WildArmed  +   1078d ago
It's on, gimme a few days. I tend not to even pop online these days. But then we'll co-op the whole game through.
HighScore  +   1078d ago
I'd be down for some co-op in Outland. I'm near the end of the single player campaign, but I still have a lot to do. I lost interest, because I don't know anybody who wants to co-op, so you'd be helping a brother out! Let me know if none of the other guys want to join you.

YESSS... this definitely makes up for the WD episodes :/ which i didn't want.
WildArmed  +   1078d ago
They are pretty good, you should give them a try regardless.

I tried the first episode, and was pleasantly surprised.
phinch  +   1077d ago
i didnt think id like them, but honestly i cant wait for each episode now
No FanS Land  +   1078d ago
Sometimes I found the game to be exceptionally hard, but I'm still glad I bought it, it's really awesome. Well worth the money.

Feels like a good old snes side-scrolling adventure game.
yeahokchief  +   1078d ago
You are exactly what's wrong with the gaming industry.

"glad i didn't".

Yeah you didn't support the people who made it when they needed it. SO their publisher may get some money off this deal, but the odds of a sequel are like 0 now because you didn't support it.

Keep voting with your wallet like this and all you're going to see in stores is yearly iterations of call of duty or some other godawful yearly sequel.

I bought Outland on release and it was awesome.

Also I don't like the direction video game prices have been going. Just straight up charge me $70 on release and don't play games with dlc pricing. I want a full game for my money. Stop penalizing me for buying games on release by making them free later or including the dlc in supposed "game of the year" versions. You cant have 12 game of the years in 1 year.

Everyone should embrace what THQ is doing with darksiders 2. Free 90 day DLC pass for buying the game on release. You get a full game for paying full price. You get what you pay for. no nonsense.

Are you advertising?
yeahokchief  +   1077d ago
hell yes i'm advertising. that's a fucking rock solid deal compared to the rest of the shit that's being pulled on us. i will advertise the fuck out of thq's fair pricing because THEY'RE DOING IT RIGHT.
Bowzabub  +   1078d ago
I bought it, but a long time ago. No sweat, glad that more people get to enjoy it.
moparful99  +   1078d ago
I was planning to buy the walking dead episodes as soon as the 3rd one came out.. Thank goodness I didn't, ps+ is amazing!!
ALLWRONG  +   1078d ago
Rental services are great
hkgamer  +   1078d ago
yeah rental services that support sony and developers are great.
ImpliedDeception  +   1078d ago
Actually, I don't see an expiration date on any psn games I get thru the service...

It appears as though Walking Dead (and anything else that isn't a full fat PS3 game) is mine.
IAmLee  +   1077d ago
At least we ain't having to pay 40 quid/60 dollars a year to play online..
JAM_brz  +   1077d ago
What a stupid comment.

I have both PS and Xbox360, and for me, pay to play online it´s a big error of Microsoft. It´s better pay and gain some games, even if it´s have a time to expire, even because in this period of time I´ve finished the games.

@ALLWRONG It never ceases to amaze me how narrow minded people can be.. Sure if I stop paying for ps+ I lose the privelege of playing my games but with the stream of new and high quality games they give me every month I would be a fool to let my subscription expire, in fact once my initial sub ended I bought TWO years worth..

So in a sense I have 24 months worth of gaming for less then a bill... If you cant wrap your mind around how brilliant of a deal this is then I feel for you.. I will have a ps+ subscription for as long as Sony remains in the console business and thats a fact.. Its not being a sheep its not being a fanboy, its simply an awesome value and I applaud Sony for doing this..

Besides honestly how is this any different then and on demand games service?? Other then the fact that I get ALOT of free content on top of games... Your only fooling yourself!

Looking forward to playing Outland
bubblebeam  +   1077d ago
Dammit. I bought it like 2 months ago for 400msp on xbox Deal Of the week. Now I feel like kicking it over. At least theres even more on offer for PS+ than just outland.

I don't mean to sound like a fanboy, so don't flame me. But PS+ is so much better than XBL (My xbox live runs out in less than a week, not renewing until Halo 4 comes out, so I'm not a sony fanboY, DONT call me one).

I'm sure I speak for most people with xbl that the deal of the weeks have been pathetic this year. A week ago it was the davinci disappearance half price? lol.

I'm only bringing Microsoft into this (it is relevant) as I wish they would give us HALF of what ps+ has given us. About a month ago I got Infamous 2, Saints Row 2 and just cause 2 for ps+ FREE!
negroguy  +   1078d ago
So getting outland.. I saw a Kamehameha in the gameplay that's instant download.
DaReapa  +   1078d ago
Outland has to be one of the most underrated DL titles in recent memory. If you're a PS+ member and have been on the hunt for something unique, you owe it to yourself to at least try this game.

what happend to the Free retail games? EU owns US again..

supraking951  +   1078d ago
meh, id rather have Deus ex and Dead Space 2 like EU
Ducky  +   1078d ago
... and motorstorm apocalypse.

Then again, I already own DeusEx and DS2 and didn't own GothamCityImpostors or WalkingDead, so can't say I'm too sad.
WildArmed  +   1078d ago
Likewise, but Dues Ex / DS2 would have been better additions.. even thou I own them both (and don't own the games they put in in their stead.)
dgonza40  +   1078d ago
Relax, it's been two months.

I see a lot of people complaining on the ps blog as well. As far as I'm concerned, the instant game collection update made ps plus pay for itself. Im sure we'll get great updates in the future
BitbyDeath  +   1078d ago
I think the complainers are those that bought 3 month subs
Soldierone  +   1078d ago
Yeah because the 3 months have SUCKED since the update. Why should we shell out MORE money when we just got jipped 20 dollars for 3 months?

The E3 update was cool, but I subscribed because the month before it they had all kinds of cool content and cool little games going in and out. Then I subscribe and its a big promising update at E3, then pretty much nothing.....
Robotronfiend  +   1078d ago
DS2 is $10 at Best Buy this week. No more excuses not to own it.
SolidDuck  +   1078d ago
Wait what? EU got dead space 2 and deus ex. Wow we got shafted.
Outsider-G  +   1078d ago
Hopefully they come to the NA store soon.
Philoctetes  +   1078d ago
I was holding out hope for Motorstorm: Apocalypse. Honestly, my Plus subscription has already paid for itself just since June so I have nothing to complain about, but I'm still a little disappointed.
Larry L  +   1078d ago
About Motorstorm Apocalypse.

Wasn't it originally in the very first Instant Games Collection line-up in America, but then they pulled it off because they had just offered it the previous month on Plus with a discount that brought the price down to $34.99?

I seem to remember that because I was a person who bought it for the Plus discount of $35 because I always said to myself I would buy it when the price drops to $40. Then I remember being pretty miffed that the next month it was one of the free games for Plus. I didn't complain on the blog, but others did, and I thought it was silently pulled from the IGC collection.

That's why I'm always confused when US Plus owners say they want Apocalypse. Cause I swear they already got it, and they complained so it was pulled in the US.

Maybe my memory isn't the greatest though, so I'm probably mistaken.
Ducky  +   1078d ago
Motorstorm was never offered in the collection in the NA... or I never saw it being offered. It did show up for people in the EU.

A lot of games got a discount one week before the 12 games lineup was launched. Motorstorm was one of the games, but Infamous2 and JustCause2 were also on it, and those last two games did end up becoming 'free' for NA.

I know cause I bought Infamous2 and found it odd that they'd give PS+ members a discount, then just make them 'free' altogether a week later.

terrible month. Bad discounts and lackluster games. Only positive was I was exposed to the awesomeness that was The Walking Dead so i guess it's still better than the crap of lack month.
Mike_Tha_Hero  +   1078d ago
Oh how I love PS+
WeskerChildReborned  +   1078d ago
Awesome that Outland and Bloodrayne are gonna be free.
black911  +   1078d ago
I want payday the heist
blackblades  +   1078d ago
I'm thinking we might get that one day, morrgan said next month we should be getting some good stuff like Dues Ex and dead space
Getowned  +   1078d ago
Walking Dead is great, your in for a treat if you have PSN+.

Sofar I'd give the walking Dead game a 10/10 I really enjoyed it. I really should think about picking up PSN+, you guys get some really great games for free, I am jelly.
weeman18  +   1078d ago
Plus has really been a huge benefit for me, keep the good stuff coming
crawling182  +   1078d ago
Love PS+, but how am I suppose to find the time to play all of these -_-

Soldierone  +   1078d ago
I'll be downloading Bloodrayne, but still looking for more content (preferably wider selection of discounts) before I re-subscribe to Plus ever again. DUST is cool, but it wasn't hard to get in that beta at all....

I'll be buying Counter Strike, the first thing I'll ever buy at a Plus discount during this subscription (past 3 months) and then everything else I'm buying isn't even mentioned in Plus at all.
bacrec1  +   1078d ago
MF's Need that Outland!
OllieBoy  +   1077d ago
Already have Outland and I hated the demo for Bloodrayne. The controls just suck.

Europe wins another month. I wanted Dead Space 2 :(
