Some of those games really aren't that old, and hell yeah, I'll play some Sleepy Dogs again!

It's official, EU plus subscribers gets better treatment than US plus subscribers.

Plus is still a great service no matter where you are.

Not sure, didn't the US already get Quantum Conundrum and WipEout? Also, Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition? Pretty good line-up, no?

you guys are so spoiled if you only knew whats on ps+ Jpn store =(
Godchild1020  +   787d ago
@GodisaGeek, the US did get those games. I'm not saying the offering from Plus in the US is bad. Its just not comparable to the EU offering during the same month.

When you look at EU's plus offering, it makes you reconsider buying games on day one. I like the US offering because we don't see as many newly released games. And when they do show up, its not as hurtful. F1 Race Stars just came, I think it hurts EU gamers that bought that game, that may or may not have plus. But EU gamers can be a little more understanding.

It balances out to some extent, in EU store we pay more for PSN games like the Neo Geo games etc. On top of that many are released in the US that either take an eternity to reach the EU store or never make it across.
omi25p  +   787d ago
yeah sure. Mean while US PlayStation users get a high quality collectors edition statue for the Last of us and European users get a game wrapped in a towel with some DLC.

Sony have such a inconsistency when it comes to quality products being sold in different countries.

The only game there that's any good is sleeping dogs and i have it so MEH.

Yeah im pretty fed up with US plus now.
GribbleGrunger  +   787d ago
Can we please stop with this comparing regions. Isn't it bad enough that consoles have caused a rift without adding yet another reason for division? What is wrong with you people?
cleverusername  +   787d ago
US got Street Fighter and Sly 4 demo
Gamer1982  +   787d ago
Thanks to plus I rarely buy games any more on ps3 except the odd ones that obviously wont make it like jrpgs. As for comparing regions US some months gets better than EU and vice versa.
bryam1982  +   787d ago
I'm happy for my european ps brothers u deserve this and more cuz u guys really support sony not like us americans (i mean the country not the continent)

@ zep

For sure, but it's getting better.

Recently got Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (OK, nothing to write home about, but I had been waiting for that to show up), and a bunch of Vita games including Dynasty Warriors (not my thing, but it is a full priced Vita game).

So, it doesn't compare to what the US or EU gets, but it is certainly getting better.

That really isn't a revelation. It was intended that way from the get-go, for whatever reason.

The EU Plus service has a contractual agreement to provide more content than the US one. The value of games promised was higher in the EU one in the initial advertisements for Plus
talisker  +   787d ago
Maybe EU region has more PS+ subscriptions than the US region? I'm just guessing.
realiks  +   787d ago
Plus is good, but we (EU) get better deals. That's a known fact.
room414  +   787d ago
Since last e3 yes but it i've been subscribed since the start and i've seen long stretches where NA ps+ has been better. It goes back and forth.
Campy da Camper  +   787d ago
What kills me is you guys clean up with Plus yet we get the awesome collector editions. I say we trade for a month lol

Sleeping Dogs excites me, as does Wipeout 2048 on the Vita, I'm always up for more Vita games.
Az1mov  +   787d ago
I bought the vita and Sony's paying for the games. How come they get all that hate.
FriedGoat  +   787d ago
I bought a vita at launch, and now they are giving me copies of the same sh*t I already own. Not 1 retail title I don't own so far. Gives me an incentive to stop buying games.

Don't get me wrong, love the vita. but PS+ sucks for people who owned a vita from launch and actually supported them by buying games.
Knushwood Butt  +   787d ago
@ FriedGoat

That goes for the PS3 content too.

Now I just think that if you are a PS+ subscriber, you need to be careful about what digital content you buy, because some of it is likely to show up on + at some point in the future.
DeFFeR  +   787d ago

If you own the retail copies, then either sell them or trade them... you'll more than make the $50 PS+ cost back if you own every free game so far...

I don't see what you have to complain about.
insomnium2  +   786d ago

That's what I did. Been a + member for 2 months and already my first year is free. Hell I even got some money out of it. No complaints here :D

Sell it or trade in?
TheFreak  +   787d ago
I feel your pain:) I traded in blops 2 2 days after release and bought max payne 3 and sleeping dogs. Just wait and see max payne 3 will be the next ps+ game lol.

Wow, Sleeping Dogs is pretty damn good. I hope we get that in the US.
grailly  +   787d ago
yeah it's a great game, the most unjustly overlooked game in 2012 imo.

I can't believe I own most of the games of the update (and arguably the best) and am still exited for the uddate.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   787d ago
That is a great update!
Will be downloading everything there!
I'm especially happy about the Vita games, I couldn't put down the demo for lumines.
majiebeast  +   787d ago
Wow i dont own any of the games they are offering this month so im very happy.
Ezz2013  +   787d ago
neither am i
this update is mind blowing
ame22  +   787d ago
Glad I held off purchasing Quantum Conundrum.
Riderz1337  +   787d ago
We got that in the US recently - It's a pretty cool game, sort of like Portal.
stage88  +   787d ago
Dammit! I still haven't finished last months PS+ games. I cannot keep up!
Also, didn't Sleeping Dogs come out not that long ago? Seems to good to be true.
ame22  +   787d ago
Last August. Seems with PS+ getting bigger they're becoming more ambitious.
e-p-ayeaH  +   787d ago
amen to that.
grailly  +   787d ago
yeah it just came out.

my advice for people who are going to discover it through PS+ is to give it some time, it starts out quite rough.
e-p-ayeaH  +   787d ago
Amazing update thank you sony.

berndogskate  +   787d ago
Very nice month indeed )
listenkids  +   787d ago
Oh no, take back sleeping dogs and give me a shit collectors edition of something like the US has.


( aimed at the EU whiners on other articles )
Sketchy_Galore  +   787d ago
Pretty damn cool. I never picked up Sleeping dogs as I was sick of open world action games at the time it came out but now I'm totally in the mood for it. Yet another big name game for the Vita too. When this Instant game collection thing was announced I thought it sounded great but still expected it to be just crappy old games that didnt sell very well and minis nobody was going to buy anyway, I can't believe how many big name cool games we're getting for this thing.
OllieBoy  +   787d ago
Wow, Sleeping Dogs?? EU PS3 owners have got it so good.
ZoyosJD  +   787d ago
Well, looks like I'll hold out on sleeping dogs to see if it comes to the US PS+.

I just plated Gravity Rush last night, and am still working on Darksiders.

Can't wait to see some EU players on the Wipeout 2048 tracks.
Nicaragua  +   787d ago
I just bought a Vita specifically to play all the games i was getting access to via PS+ - every single one of these games is a must have flagship title and i would have gladly paid full retail price for them.

It cannot be overstated what good value for money PS+ is
PirateThom  +   787d ago
I have most of the Vita games so far, but it's nice to get digital versions. 32GB card and PS+ are must have Vita add ons.
contradictory  +   787d ago
i haven't had the chance to get sleeping dogs yet
this pleases me VERY much.
( somehow i have too much games on my hand and too little time... damn you stupid reality...)

abzdine  +   787d ago
all about gaming baby! this is what i'm talking about! but Ni No Kuni will take all my time
KongRudi  +   787d ago
I think it looks like a decent batch of games:

- Sleeping Dogs 83 at metacritiq.
- Lumines: Electronic Symphony 83 at metacritq.
- Quantum Conundrum 79 at metacritq.
- WipEout 2048 79 metacritiq.
- F1 Race Stars 61 at metacritiq.

I only have the Sleeping Dogs and Lumines: ES, both wich I really liked. :)
kingboy  +   787d ago
wohoo! was just planning upon getting sleeping dogs this weekend but i guess i'll settle with Resident Evil 6 as well
Gamias580  +   787d ago
Save your money! Stop giving capcom money for crappy michael bay films! They destoryed a franchise with that last title!

I dont understand why they have divided up PSN stores they should get rid of PSN EU, PSN NA, and PSN JP and just have a PSN store that everyone could buy everything I dont get the subdivision!
Flandy  +   787d ago
I wish SCEA was this good :(
Rhythmattic  +   786d ago
I was literally just about to order Sleeping Dogs 15 mins ago and stumbled on this... Wow, fantastic news !
vlonjati77  +   786d ago
I have bothe EU & NA PS+(I live in NA).I get the best of both,unfortunately dont have time to play all the games.Personally I never complain,I grew up and learned appreciate things.Never was spoiled and dont expect.Pretty much i,ve earned everything in life.I,ve seen weeks with free games(yep free,its how I think it the $50for ps+ i pay a couple of games in my mind and the rest of the year all the games are free)that didnt interested me at ALL,but never complained Im sure there are people that liked those games.LIke I loved Motorstorm Vanquish and lots of others,its useless mentionin all the games,some may not like what I liked.
People that complain are selfish and theyr behaviour mirrors their personality in real life and will always get f tricked since they think about themselves therefore when one day they might meet someone as a friend gf etc they might lose them cause the selfish ones will think that the others are also selfish(I ve study a bit of Psychology,I like it).

P.S Forget about my grammar or sentence construction,1st english is not my mother language,2nd I write fast its just internet i dont care to be perfect in grammar at this site.have a good day every1 and since I log in to this site usually I ask you PLEASE do not press the disagree button 'cause I won't sleep all night :b

I cant wait to play Sleeeping Dogs.
