THis is great! I always wanted to play Rochard and street fighter...I'll just try it out. :P
Godchild1020  +   1160d ago
I'm waiting for the PS Vita update for plus. I'll still add those two to my Download list.
Y_5150  +   1160d ago
Good idea! I'll put Street fighter IV it on my DL list. But I'm with ya on that Vita update. :)

I don't care for rochard but Street fighter! I never played AE so this is really huge. Im so happy capcom is supporting plus.
Godchild1020  +   1160d ago
It might push some of those Subscribers to purchase STXT, if they haven't already. And Capcom was supporting Plus with Resident Evil and other titles.
PurpHerbison  +   1160d ago
They should consider adding SFxT to PSPlus since it didn't do so hot with the fans. More people might pick it up if it's free. At least, that's the only way I'll ever play the game again.

Wow I dont give a damn what any xbox fanboy or critic would say, I f'ing LOVE my PS+
typikal82  +   1160d ago
It's something like 18GBs, I downloaded the digital version before to play the 1 hour trial. You need twice that space in order to install it.
kupomogli  +   1160d ago
Unless you're still using a fat PS3 that hasn't been upgraded to a larger hard drive, most people won't have concerns with the amount of space required.

I have a 60GB PS3 using a 500GB hard drive.

Man with all these awesome games I'm running out of HD space. I already replaced my 64GB with a 320GB and even that is full to capacity with 150+ (some very excellent) PSN games. Will have to buy the 750 now.

lmaoo to think i was gonna buy sf over the weekend and look it here free for plus which im a plus lmaoo i luv u sony
nikrel  +   1160d ago
I'm not really into either title, I realize this will happen at times because we do not get to select the games.
BLAKHOODe  +   1160d ago
I'm not excited for this update either, but no biggie - I've been taking advantage of a lot of Christmas sales and have a TON of new stuff to play while I wait for something amazing comes along on PS Plus.
abzdine  +   1160d ago
good idea, i can finally get rid of SSF4 cause nobody plays it online.
majiebeast  +   1160d ago
Smart move by Sony and Capcom to release it after that giant tournament they had last weekend for the 25th anniversery of streetfighter and megaman.
Ben_Grimm  +   1160d ago
Now that is a GREAT deal...even though the game is old as sh*t.

But still, a very good deal.
LOGICWINS  +   1160d ago
How is a game that came out last year considered old? Its the LATEST SF on consoles.
Ducky  +   1160d ago
It's a game from 2008.

Capcom just like to re-release their game every time there's DLC.
Ben_Grimm  +   1160d ago
Hmmm, how is a game that came out LAST YEAR considered OLD? I don't know LOGIC...maybe because every year that goes by things tend to get ..(wait for it).. OLDER.

You know like cars, movies, AGE.

Like OldMan says above, Capcom released updates, patches and balancing but anyone who is a SF fan would have had this game by now. And yes the UPDATE that came out last year added 4 new characters to the game and rebalance but it is still a game from 2010.

Still, it is a great deal and anyone who hasn't picked it up can and should.

I personally dont consider one year to be a very old game at all.

I have a feeling you're one of those people that, 2 months after a game comes out, makes fun of people who buy it later because youre so much better than them for having 60 dollars 2 months earlier.

I had a friend like that. He was a douche.

Either way one year is NOT an old game. Uncharted 3 is over a year old as of last month.
maniacmayhem  +   1156d ago
@Logic and Axecution

The game didn't come out last year unless we consider updates and DLC making a game new now. Which we shouldn't.
Ben is correct the SF4:AE v2012 is nothing more than an update to the original SF4 which was released YEARS ago.
SAE  +   1160d ago
Lol , im glad this is not in europe :)
I hate this game ..
chadboban  +   1160d ago
Bought a PS plus membership last month. Best $50 I've spent in a while.

Meh, I guess it's a proper fighting game this time around.
Qrphe  +   1160d ago

I'd argue that 2D fighting games are always better than 2.5D games but in the end it'd come down to
Robotronfiend  +   1159d ago
8-way run for life! :-) SF is by far my favorite 2D fighting game. I'm more into the 3D fighting games like SC, VF, and Tekken.
Snookies12  +   1160d ago
King of Fighters is better than Street Fighter in my opinion... At least this generation... So I don't know what you mean by "not a proper fighting game."

Still, it's cool to get it free regardless.
sandman224  +   1160d ago
Is that comming to the US?
GraveLord  +   1160d ago
Yes this is the US PS Store update.
Flandy  +   1160d ago
Store doesn't update till Tuesdays at like 1-5 PM PST though so don't worry that it's not up yet. (Note when the store updates tomorrow the game might show up in the Plus section but not as free try adding and then removing it from the cart to fix this. If that doesn't fix it just wait for a bit and it will fix itself by the end of the day)
Orionsangel  +   1160d ago
I wanted to try Rochard. It's in the style of Shadow Complex. One of my favorite downloadable games of all time. It's probably no where near is good, but I can get into it.
DivineAssault  +   1160d ago
why is xblg still in existence at its current state? its more money than plus & offers little to nothing.. playing online should be free & the perks of ps plus is what a premium membership should be like.. Its an incredible deal that im glad to be a part of

Has nothing to do with this article whatsoever, but since you asked, it still exists because a shitload of people still buy it, and ms is therefore making a shitload of money off it. Last time I checked Sony was the one going broke, not sure ms would be smart to imitate their business model. Before the flaming begins, yes I own a ps3, and yes I am a plus subscriber, as well as xbl gold.
Rainstorm81  +   1160d ago
Sony going broke? Thats news to me....Looking at the PS plus offers they must have some kind of money
P_Bomb  +   1160d ago
The TV division is a bust. The game division isn't. Broke in one shouldn't affect a boon in the other. Two different business models. MS busted with Zune for example, but it didn't affect their XBox division.

I live in Canada have ps plus,but bought also plus from my euro account and now im playing Batman,very good game.had a cousin in europe that bought me EU PSN card.have so many games damn dont have time to finish them all.I bought it for 12 euros for 6 months it was a deal for one day I guess .
RyuX19  +   1160d ago
Oh you can get both no matter what region?
Eyeco  +   1160d ago
I've got both thanks to PS+ i can't believe a game las recent as BM AC was give free
Apocwhen  +   1159d ago
When you got EU PS+ content from your EU account does it let you play it under your US account? or visa versa?
Y_5150  +   1159d ago
You can create a EU account, buy another plus subscription for that EU account because the US plus sub doesn't count on your EU account.

That means you'll pay less than 20 US dollars to get you hands on those two games which if you bought at retail it might have been around 60 to 80 dollars. Happy gaming! :)
Myst  +   1160d ago
Well I guess I'll be playing a bit of SSFIVAE2012 then. Already have the disc but this time around I may stand a chance at gaining a higher rank.
brettyd  +   1160d ago
Moving to EU for the free games...but seriously EU PS+ is killing the US.

You realize... You can get an EU Plus account even if you don't live in EU right?
brettyd  +   1160d ago
you realize that was a joke right?
Snookies12  +   1160d ago
Was I supposed to know it was a joke? o_o Either way, no worries, it's just that some jokes don't translate well online, so I just thought you might not have known that. :]

Best fighting game of all time, only for PRO'S
Flipgeneral  +   1160d ago
haha many people will disagree with you on that one :)
Snookies12  +   1160d ago
Sorry man, can't agree there. Try playing Tekken Tag Tournament 2, or Blazblue Extend. Those games are crazy with combos, takes serious skill to get good at those two.
kupomogli  +   1160d ago
I'll agree with Tekken. It's ridiculously hard to get good in this series. What with bounds and air juggles being the base of the newest games.
#16.2.1 (Edited 1160d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report
Snookies12  +   1160d ago
@kupomogli - Yeah, I've been playing the game non-stop the past few days and am still barely getting anywhere. I'm usually really good at picking up fighters. The depth of moves is just insane in that game... Has to be my favorite fighter of the year though for sure.
Robotronfiend  +   1159d ago
It's just as hard to get good at SF4 as it is with TTT2. You have to practice different things, but getting to a high level in either game is rather difficult. IN TTT2 you have to learn so many matchups and in SF4 you have to learn to hit those 1 or 2 frame links for proper combos.
Tapewurm  +   1160d ago
Virtua Fighter started it for far as in depth strategy fighting games are concerned anyway.... the Tekken and Dead or Alive series are great alternatives too (the new Mortal Kombat should get a mention here as well lol )...but, that is my opinion.... I already own Street Fighter VI and Blazblue and they are fun, but in the Street Fighter World or should I say Capcom World....I like the Marvel Vs. Capcom Series more so. Getting the Super version will be a plus pun intended :)
baodeus  +   1160d ago
Na, street fighter 3rd strike, cap on vs snk 2, blazeblue and killer instinct are cream of the crops in fighting game.
kingPoS  +   1160d ago
Capcom vs SNK 2 to this day is still one top 5 fighters. It's a shame it wasn't treated the same as MvsC 2.
baodeus  +   1160d ago
yeah kinda sad. People seems to prefer spamming more than highly skilled fighting mechanic. They did release capcom vs snk 2 but no online, i don't know WTF Capcom was thinking.

I usually like previous capcom fighting games for their fluid animation. That fluid animation kinda lost it for me when Capcom decided to go with semi 3D lately.

You should pick up Zen Pinball for Vita. It's infinite fu n and crazy addicting when you have people on your friends listplaying. And its very inexpensive. Every table has a demo and most tables only cost 2-3 dollars. Incredible value. Incredibl3 game.

I can't believed Crapcom is giving something for free.
Or are they hoping for more suckers buying the extra costumes?
Snookies12  +   1160d ago
Well, I'm sure Sony has to give them money to do a deal like this. Not only that, I'm sure they're (as you said) wanting more people to "buy" into their DLC. :\

Knushwood Butt  +   1160d ago
Well, not a lot to be honest.

It only started to get better recently.

'Crap', is a bit harsh. Nowhere near as good as the US or Europe is probably a better way of putting it...
DiLeCtioN  +   1160d ago
FFS i payed £15 the other day for it. If only I knew about this :(

Mind you it is about 18GB on the HDD
Knushwood Butt  +   1160d ago
How can SSFIV possibly require 18GB?

Just wondering..
Robotronfiend  +   1159d ago
Does that include double space for the install? Like a 9gb download that needs an extra 9gb to install? Even with a disc there was a decent installation.
Omnislash  +   1160d ago
I was hoping for something better.... I already bought this when it came out. Oh well, my friends will have it at least.
porkChop  +   1160d ago
Again, NA gets shafted compared to EU. Every single month now. What the fuck is up with Sony these days? At least if we got similar quality games it would be better, but instead we get between subpar and alright-kinda-cool games, while they always gets between good and amazing games. Such a slap in the face to your fans and paying customers.
Tito08  +   1160d ago
Well, in that regard, you can blame SCEA, SCEE works completely different from SCEA, as well as SCEJ... Whatever each division does has nothing to do with the others, for example, EU & US have the new PS store, but Japan is still keeping the old store, I kind of like the old store more!!!

And of course Europe RAPES us again with Arkham City and Vanquish.
youndamie  +   1160d ago
I will definitely download SSIV.
Veneno  +   1160d ago
Ss4 AE is a terrific game, a damn near perfection of SF4.but SF 4 in general has been around forever and if you've havent picked up AE by now you probly won't ever so IMO this shouldn't have been featured on PS+. Maybe a fighter that is newer like soulcaibur 5, Mortal Kombat.
m-s-8-2  +   1160d ago
So how exactly does PS+ work? Is it that if im a member now, and "purchase" a game to my account at no charge today, I'll have access to it for free at any time as long as im a subscriber to the service? What if it's an off and on thing, like subscribed for 6 months but then let it lapse for a period of time and then resubscribe?
P_Bomb  +   1160d ago
It's like you never left. You get everything back, even your cloud saves. Avatars and themes are your's forever anyways. People on my friendlist hop in and out all the time.

I don't even own a Vita, but I still activated Uncharted Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, WipEout 2048 from Plus just in case I ever do. Even though they're only free for a limited time, once they're activated in my download list, I can download them whenever***.

***that tip actually applies to anything from the PS Store, even long removed items like the Gran Turismo Prologue and Valkyria Chronicles demos. Just get it in your queue, then cancel.
