Bloody hell! I hope we get this in Europe. But if we don't, I'm not going to complain.

Edit: Has this already been on the European PS+?

@Drage90: I should have subscribed earlier! Oh well, there'll be plenty of games I'll want coming up in the year.

They had Darksiders in the EU store for a while now Grunger...

I have been waiting for that game to hit the U.S. store for a few months.. Finally

I had slept on Darksiders it was cool but I kind of was still on my GOW kick..

but I planned to get that game and try to play it once again, here's my chance.

Wish I could play it on my.. nevermind. Peace

ah cool, already have the disc version, but nice for those who haven't played it yet. Very cool game with a nice mix of hack n slash, puzzles, and RPG elements. Also one of my favorite characters, Samael, what a badass!

This sucks pretty hard since I just picked up the game for my PS3 this past Xmas for a used price at Gamestop.

Anyways it is a really good game and I held off on part two just so I could finish this.
DOMination-  +   1051d ago
Well now you can trade it back in and just use the digital copy i guess. Install/delete as you require. That's what i do in that situation anyway.
Godchild1020  +   1051d ago
If you still have the receipt, you can return it and get something else. I don't think you can get your money back because its longer then the seven days, but any return you see is better than nothing at all.

You could even put it towards the second one used or new, but I think you will be better off getting it new, because most Gamestops still have the limited edition in stock.
TheLastGuardian  +   1051d ago
I wish I had it already. I've always wanted to get it because of that sweet holographic box art (and because I enjoyed the demo.) Physical copies > digital any day of the week. You'll own that game for the rest of your life as long as you never sell it.

I'm glad I'll finally get to play Darksiders, but I'm sad that now I won't have to add it to my collection with that awesome box art.

Definitely picking up Stardrone Extreme for $2. The demo was pretty cool. Good use of the rear touchpad.

jesus, who doesnt own darksiders by now? *also a pc gamer*
well i guess i could get darksider again since the game pretty much got screwed up on my PC after the 1st dungeon

aww no vita game this week :(

Stardrone Extreme is a Vita game.
GribbleGrunger  +   1051d ago
Approximately 71 million PS3 owners don't own Darksiders.
ThanatosDMC  +   1051d ago
Yeah, i agree. I have it on PS3 and Steam.
aquamala  +   1051d ago
Yep what pc gamer doesn't already have this game lol, it's part of the last humble bundle , and part of every ridiculous THQ sales.
sandman224  +   1051d ago
Darn I already beat darksiders. Oh well if you haven't played it, it's a blast.

Don't complain. The EU + service is for once better than the US. Overall i mean
hawkeyejonjon  +   1051d ago
@IDeath489 EU already got Darksiders back in August. I believe it was August.
Williamson  +   1051d ago
I woke up today thinking about buying this game, but now I can just buy #2 and finish 1 on plus.
silkrevolver  +   1051d ago
The best thing about Playstation+, is that it constantly seems to give me the games I was thinking about buying, but never went through with it.

Great stuff.
thebudgetgamer  +   1051d ago
For the past few months it seems that when I download a game on the 360 it finds its way to PSN+
doogiebear  +   1051d ago
Sell your 360. Why waste money on xbox live fees. Never me, good sir.
Qrphe  +   1051d ago
Is there a need to antagonize the 360 this much?
Riderz1337  +   1051d ago
Wow this is awesome. If DarkSiders 1 is good then I just might have to pick up the second one.
doogiebear  +   1051d ago
And that's exactly the purpose it served when the developers chose to give it away on ps plus. See, everyone wins!
brettyd  +   1051d ago
Thank you! something good for once.
matrixman92  +   1051d ago
YAY!!! a 3 year old game...ugh...another week im skipping, because I already have everything..not renewing ps+ at the rate its going
Godchild1020  +   1051d ago
The fact that they gave us something different (And retail) is better than nothing at all or getting a sports game (That is digital only). I have the game as well, but I'm not complaining. This gives me a chance to play the game again, before running through the second one.

You can't always expect triple A titles that came out the same year or the year before. Or new digital titles or we would get games like ChronoVolt all the time.

It's your choice to renew and it's your money to do as you please. I currently satisfied with the service, even if most of the games I don't like or have/had already.
matrixman92  +   1051d ago
"You can't always expect triple A titles that came out the same year or the year before."

Europe can
DigitalRaptor  +   1051d ago
Most stuff on PS+ are things I've never played, so to each their own I guess. The service is downright incredible, but it's not going to be for everyone.
Riderz1337  +   1051d ago
How can you renew a subscription you were never subscribed to in the first place? Stop trolling.
matrixman92  +   1051d ago
I got a 1 month for the ps all stars beta...then renewed 3 months for gravity rush, uncharted, and mutant it expires on March 22nd. So stfu if u dont know facts maybe?

Damn activated ps+ last night but i already finished this.

Just yesterday I ordered it on Amazon and wondered "What if it becomes free for PS+?" so I cancelled it. Good thing I did :)
hadouken007  +   1051d ago
Man i need to get PS+ I'm Missing alot of stuff.
Kevlar009  +   1051d ago
And here I am on Xbox Live Gold, getting features I don't want at a price I really don't want to pay (which is why I go through third parties for a cheaper price)

I would glady trade half of my features for a free game very month. In fact, leave online play, Netflix, and give me a game a month (is it week for +?)and I'll be good.
NoFanboyRequired  +   1050d ago
Nice stealth trolling. Too bad you failed at it.
I bet you sent this from your PS3, huh?

You probably dont even have live, let alone have a 360.

Its obvious you're a troll because who in their right mind would complain about a service they're paying for? You're free to leave, i hope you know that.

@Zhipp I also wished M$ offered better deals but they don't. Did you see their 12 day countdown to new years deals? The $20 sale price of some of them were stuff that ps+ got for free months ago. M$ makes me feel like I waste my money with them. I haven't played Darksiders so I look forward to it.
Kevlar009  +   1051d ago
The problem with LIVE is that it's a "one size fits all" approach. They give you a bunch of features you don't want with features you do want and slap on a premium price. The greatest thing they could do with the next gen is let people choose certain features for a price.

With Xbox having a multi-media focus currently (and I would assume beyond), having a gaming package (online play+ free games/deals), a media package (last fm, youtube, Zune HD, misc) and a total package seems like a good idea (with the option of adding features from the other for a price).

Both Nintendo and Sony both appear to have stepped up their game when it comes to online, especially for free services. Hopefully MS will take a leap into more diverse options with the next Xbox that cater to the type of gamer that owns it

I really need to get my ducks in a row and renew my membership. Hey I have a question for any of you PS Plus vets...which technically I am one for 2 years but anyway. If there is a lapse in membership do you lose your games? Or do you still get them back whenever you re-up the membership? A response is greatly appreciated :D.
kwiksilver99  +   1051d ago
all your previous downloads will still be stored in the download's section when you re-up the membership.

so no worries :-)
chiefdog11  +   1051d ago
If your membership lapses don't worry. Obviously you won't have access to your games while lapsed, but when you renew your membership you will still have access to everything you had before it lapsed.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   1051d ago
Just another reason why I'm enjoying PS+. I had no intentions of buying Darksiders but now I get to play this as a PS+ member. Step it up like this MS and I might just re-subscribe to Live Gold.
DivineAssault  +   1051d ago
NICE! i guess after i complete darksiders, ill move on & get part 2.. ps plus is da $hyt
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1051d ago
I got ps+ but im really jealous of the EU side.
turnerdc  +   1051d ago
Great game! If you love this I highly suggest you pick up Darksiders II. I found it MUCH better than the original!
kingPoS  +   1051d ago
I've heard of Darksiders before, but I was knee deep in GT5 at that time, so yeah... I get to enjoy another great game.

I've had + since January 2010 and I'm going to renew. What a feeling it is to have a jukebox of games, videos & music at the ready.

500gb for me isn't enough anymore!
