While many of you might still be getting acquainted with the PS Vita Plus games, PS3 gamers can welcome BioShock 2 into their Instant Game Collection. Download it for free if you’re a Plus member when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday."

Sweet, had Bioshock 1+2 in my Amazon cart multiple times but never pulled the trigger.

Godchild10201392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

Europe got the best PS+ update by far this month. NA bites the dust again. Anyway, Bioshock one free with a purchase of Bioshock:Infinite and now 2 free with plus. I can complete all 3 games now.

NewMonday1392d ago

not playing Bioshock 1 is crime

yesmynameissumo1392d ago

I liked 2 more then the first. By "liked more", I mean I actually beat it.

grailly1392d ago

yeah PS+ EU's offering is really strong this month. although I would have benefitted more from the US offering as I own all the EU games.

pro tip: the best EU game this month is Vanquish.

UnwanteDreamz1389d ago

BS2 combat gameplay is crap. Art and story are the only redeemable parts of that game IMO.

Lol right?

I almost got it myself, but went with Deus Ex instead. Hooray for us I suppose. :)

Emilio_Estevez1392d ago

LOL, guess what I chose last time? Deus Ex HR as well.

yeahokchief1392d ago

Bioshock1&2, Deus Ex HR, Dishonored. All must plays with a lot in common.

ziggurcat1392d ago

been sort of wanting to get this game again to play the singleplayer DLC since i got rid of the game before it had come out... this is the perfect excuse!

Oh_Yeah1392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

Bioshock 2 is basically free without plus...Once I get a vita I'll sign up, that side is looking nice.

cruncher_201392d ago

So in your head free = 20$ ? I hope you don't take care of a budget...

Oh_Yeah1392d ago (Edited 1392d ago )

It's 5 dollars at my local store. Should have used the word almost, my bad. I'd like if the ps3 side of plus offered more psn games honestly..because I've played all the retails they have to offer..I haven't bought any psn games really.

cruncher_201391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

@brettyd :

I guess you are is US but for me cheapest I can find is more like 13$ with shipping... And local store is like 15$.... Used I guess I can find it for 10... Some retailer still sell it at 19.99 as on the PSN...

Playstation Plus is easy to understand...

Bioshock Infinite comes PS+ = free bioshock2
FarCry 3 comes PS+ = free FarCry 2
Saints 3 PS+ = Saints2 free
Walking Dead Episode 4 comes... PS+ = Free episode 1-2
DeadSpace 3 PS+ = Free or 50%off for DeadSpace 2
...

They give sometime that can hook you to buy something else...
So if you want to play the last game well PS+ is not for you even if sometime they have good deal for new PSN game when they come out like Journey or Limbo... But is you like to try different franchise or if you can wait well you can get a lot of stuff for 50$...

With Crysis 3 coming... Crysis 2 can be a good candidate for ps+ so don't get it...

LOGICWINS1392d ago

If you sign up now, u can start building up a backlog of games for your Vita. The free Vita games on PS Plus now aren't guaranteed to be there once u gt ur Vita.

smokey_vols1392d ago

@Oh_Yeah

Playstation Plus is less than $5 a month! So you could get Bioshock 2 plus whatever else is added this month (and all the current Vita games) for what you would buy Bioshock 2 for.

dee-ecks1392d ago

What is "Return To Rapture"?? It says "Return To Rapture" is free with Bioshock 2, so what is it??

volcane1392d ago

Return to Rapture is what you do in Bioshock 2, hence you get Bioshock 2 free.

KevPC1392d ago

Idk why people complain about free stuff..but just so everyone knows, this only for one week of December..they still haven't revealed what's to come for the rest of the month.

brettyd1392d ago

It's not "Free" this is a paid service.

Kingthrash3601392d ago

To me it's free. I've been paying for plus since it started and was getting discounts and some mini games free. Now they are giving retail games for no extra cost. Then give the service with a game collection (AAA games in the collection btw) at no extra cost to the vita....Free to me but, I'm not disagreeing with you it's a paid service yeah, but they easly could have raised the price 10$ and it still would be the best deal out there. Finger crossed tightly in hopes that Xbox starts rewarding us something better than a fucking helmet for a avatar after 10 years of service....smh.

I do agree w Kev, people complaining over (basically) free shit is far, far beyond my understanding.

suicidalblues1392d ago

@brettyd

By your logic that means that 360 users have to pay extra to play the other half of most of their games, since a gold account is required. So if your live account expires you lose ½ of all your games.

But that perspective sucks, right?

memots1392d ago

The "fee" paid itself way back.

antz11041391d ago

Lol, regardless, brettyd is right. You pay $50 a year and they give you games, if you discontinue this service you can't play them. Technically you're renting them. And yes, you pay for Live on xbox as well. Lol, nothings ever free, I dont get why ppl don't want to admit it isnt.

QuodEratDemonstrandm1391d ago

And that makes the games less free.... how? I'm paying for the service, not the games. So, by definition, they're free.

BIGBOSS081392d ago

people complain because they're paying for xbox live and getting bent over instead of getting great value like PS+, so they have to moan about something.

Godchild10201392d ago

Maybe because both regions are paying for the same service and not getting the same benefits; in this case the games that one region has gotten and the other hasn't.

I'm sure there is someone in Europe asking why is NA getting Bioshock 2 and they are getting Batman. What ever the case may be, people will complain/question everything, because they can/want.

ajeezy091392d ago

Yeah but they can buy both
you can buy PSN Cards for any region on amazon or ebay. So whats the big deal

Baka-akaB1392d ago

It would be even more awesome if there was a worlwide option , but it's not there .

Even so , i barely get the complain , you'd still get double the bonus games
