Someone, please find me a way to get a 3 month plus card from Europe or the United Kingdom.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 with a 20% discount is awesome. I really would like to see how the NA plus update will be like.

The chance of it coming to ps plus in the us is almost none existant. Uk has been getting way better games with plus since it started.
fabod86  +   759d ago
Well, i hope for you that they will add it.
By the way EU is not restricted to UK, as you can see this news it's a worldwide exclusive for an Italian site. ;)

Yeah, People from the US complain about their plus because they think the EU gets better deals. WRONG. If you even had the slightest clue what the EU PSN is like you would jump in the bath with a toaster. You got jet set radio, A NEW game for free on vita, We got a whole list of OLD games that everyone with a vita should already own. Countless times I've been peeved at the EU content. And the fact EU PSN still hasnt got Counterstrike GO or Retro City Rampage. You Americans don't know how good you got it.

Google "UK PSN Card" and there are some sites that sell them. If you have Paypal, I could help you but wouldn't it be dangerous to trust some guy from N4G? ;)

Edit: Dammit, I have already beaten all the games they announced. B:AC is awesome.

Europe always gets the better full games. :(

8bitHero  +   759d ago
oh please dont let the US get another game i have(RE5 was a start, although im not a big fan of the series. i will however give credit where its due since it wasnt a game i already own.)

also i hope the US gets a game for both the vita and ps3.

Lots of people complaining about getting games they already have. The way I see it, it's a lot of people getting games they already purchased because they thought they would be good games. Sounds like PS+ is giving out good games to me, not just trying to read everyone's mind or handing out games most people didn't buy (and usually with good reason).

I hope the Vita gets Rayman origins or LBP vita, which is unlikely due its fairly recent release,but one can dream. I already own most of the free PSplus games.
8bitHero  +   759d ago
oh, rayman origin. i forgot about that game. i wanted that game but couldnt be bothered to get it.
kiikoooo  +   759d ago
One of the best games on vita and if you havent played it, Its in my opinion one of the best level designs you will ever see in a game.

Made to be played on a handheld..
SandWitch  +   759d ago
Playing LBP Vita at the moment. Impressively beautiful and addictive game. It's a must-have
Flandy  +   759d ago
Hope US gets something similar
Rainstorm81  +   759d ago
Wow EU has the best PS+
Conzul  +   759d ago
Well they sorta deserve it, they're more Playstation oriented than the Xbox-dominant US.
Rainstorm81  +   758d ago
Very True, here in the states its Halo and CoD fanatics and many casual people love Kinect.

I know three people that bought a 360 kinect bundle over the holiday weekend and they are the farthest thing from "Gamers"

In the US if u advertise it enough people will buy it..just look at Apple and Microsoft
blackblades  +   759d ago
I already have the game but still WTF
The_bloodedge  +   759d ago
Wow agen another game I already have... *sigh* also USA has the best plus by far, we may get one two good games but it terms of Contents and deals its by far better. Even ur none PSPLUS stuff better...
FriedGoat  +   759d ago
so true. yup, I got MK too, so far all I havent had is Chronovolt and that was Sh*t to put it politely.
dorron  +   759d ago
That's strange. The GOTY edition of Batman has just recently been released and they give the regular edition for free on PSN? It will hurt sales.
Godchild1020  +   759d ago
There is a chance they will make it up via DLC.
KwietStorm  +   759d ago
Hurt sales of a year old game or a goty edition that would only tack on a few sales anyway?
rainslacker  +   759d ago
A lot of the 3rd party games released on PS+ have DLC attached, or have a new iteration coming out soon(Borderlands for instance). Publishers aren't likely to just let Sony give away free games for no reason.
AKS  +   759d ago
You'd be surprised how much money you could make back in DLC if you give away a "free" game and charge a chunk of money for each piece of DLC.

Did you anticipate a huge surge in sales for the basic version of Arkham City any time soon? Nor did I, and nor did Rocksteady. Give it away to customers who where unlikely to buy it (they would already have it by now) and then collect new sales for DLC.
Skate-AK  +   759d ago
Personly I hope the US gets something else cause I just bought the GOTY,
deathsarm  +   759d ago

EU gets all the good stuff! First red dead redemption now this! >:(
OllieBoy  +   759d ago
And BulletStorm, Crysis 2, Dead Space 2, Darksiders, MotorStorm Apocalypse...Europe definitely gets more value than the US does. Sucks :(
porkChop  +   759d ago
Yeah I've been subscribing since the IGC started and EU has gotten a lot more expensive retail games, and us guys in NA have gotten mostly $10 PSN games. I mean I'm grateful for the free games but it pisses me off because we all pay the same amount, we should all be given the same content.
siavm  +   759d ago
My plus expired a few weeks ago and until we get games like Europe it will stay that way.

I already have Batman and Mortal Kombat for the Vita but im dying to download Vanquish and Limbo and since its free ill download Big Sky Infinity and Knytt which i have never heard about before.

Its good to be given the gold treatment on PSN.

Arkham City AND Vanquish?

That's how you know almost no one has played Vanquish. Such an amazing game and no one mentions it being a free game also.

Congratulations Europe. One of the best third person shooters free on PS+.

Other than the fact that it's a great deal if you don't own these games, nothing on either PS+ really interests me. Aside from KoFXIII and Gravity Rush, I own every retail game that's been released to both the US and Europe PS+ stores.

Gravity Rush and other free digital content on my Vita is what might sway me to join though.
iwin86  +   759d ago
Wow ! Sony is going crazy with PS+. Great service, great value.
Also it's a punch in the face for everyone who bought the Wii U version full price.
superterabyte  +   759d ago
Having read the article, I presume that both Vanquish and Limbo will also be coming to PlayStation plus for free?

theodopolopolus  +   759d ago
There was a picture showing them as part of the instant game collection in some magazine and I think Sony confirmed it, or something along those lines. I think it will come in like the middle of December

Edit: just looked it up and apparently they are all coming out on December 5, yay! Can't wait to play vanquish, and I held off on Arkham city because I thought they would put it on plus, lucky gut instinct

Hell yeah, you lucky to get vanquish!! Its such a great game, I dont regret to have bought it day one, but MAN ENJOY!!!! its such a great game!! :) :) still playing it from time to time!
stage88  +   759d ago
YES! Will be downloading this straight away!

How the hell is Sony offering all these great games at such a low price!?

WHat the ferk NA...they get RDR, AND Arkham city and we got Warhammer??!?!?!? Step it up! You got almost as many owners in one country as EU does in an entire continent!
BitbyDeath  +   758d ago
We got Warhammer earlier as well
StrongMan  +   759d ago
PS+ is well worth $50 a year. Worth every penny.
DigitalRaptor  +   759d ago
Every single one! Kinda makes you question what Sony could possibly gain from being so generous with PS+.

All I can say is that if this quality continues year on year, I will be a subscriber for a long time. It's just so difficult to keep up with all these games.

I still haven't finished Crysis 2 yet! I can't keep up with all these games :)
BitbyDeath  +   759d ago
Same i haven't even started that one yet.
Currently playing Tomb Raider and just beat Hell Yea.

Think i'll delete a few i'm not interested in.
Already got rid of Far Cry 2, will probably get rid of Deus Ex next.
e-p-ayeaH  +   759d ago

Wait, so we'll be getting 3 free Vita games every month just like the PS3? That's beyond awesome. Sony better drop memory card prices and release a 64GB at $99. I'm gonna need it.
BLAKHOODe  +   759d ago
Man, I was getting all excited, then I saw they were getting rid of Crysis 2 and I thought.. wait a minute, Crysis 2 was never available on my Playstation Plus! That's when I realize this was Europe's update.. not the U.S's.

I FAIL.
YoungKingDoran  +   759d ago
Aww yeah, Vanquish.
I love that game.
I also love how people complain about it being too short - well if Sam was a slow ass tank I'm sure it'd be as long as some other recent TPSs
chasegarcia  +   759d ago
I have Mortal Kombat and will sell it if ps plus US will get it.

btw- MK: It is a great game with bad graphics.
