NA PlayStation Plus Update: Ninja Gaiden Sigma Free for Members

Posted by Morgan Haro // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms -

January is almost over, and we have one more Plus update for you, but first let’s reminisce on this month’s offerings, shall we? Plus member freebies included NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, Darksiders, Mega Man 9 and 10, along with Foosball 2012, and we there were some awesome deals with the 13 for ’13 discounts (last day is today). Topping it all off was access to the God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta, and the 12+3 Plus promotion where you can buy one year of Plus and get three extra months at no additional cost; which is active right now.
We’re sending January off by welcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PS Vita, free for Plus members! There are also some amazing PSN gems at fantastic prices that you may have missed. Read on and enjoy the update, which takes effect when the PlayStation Store updates on January 29th. (Gatling Gears, God of War: Ascension, Greed Corp., Madden 13, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, PS Vita, PS3, Section 8: Prejudice)

They should have done the PS3 and PSV versions, but still a new / old Vita game is always welcomed.
doogiebear  +   547d ago
Your not entitled to both. Stop crying, and learn to appreciate. Have u ANY idea how many free games, deals, etc we already got in January alone?
UnSelf  +   547d ago
FYI: people are not necessarily disagreeing wit ur statement just with ur attitude
ABizzel1  +   547d ago

You seem to be the one throwing a hissy fit. I was just saying it would have made sense to release both version seeing how the original is over 7 years old on the PS3.

I still have the original Sigma, it just would have been nice for everyone to get both since not everyone has a Vita. Which I have as well.

Think before you speak, you come off as rude and obnoxious. Neither of which are appealing qualities.

I don't think Sigma for PS3 is on the PSN though is it? Would have been a big ask for them to mail a copy out to every PS+ subscriber if not.
Snookies12  +   547d ago
Heck yes! I always wanted to play this on PS3 and Vita, yet never got the chance to own it. This'll be great. Man I love PS Plus...
UltraVegito  +   547d ago
Wow NGS+ this week,you done well SCEA you done well.

Never did gotten around to it and was thinking about purchasing it before NGS2+ but guess i won't have to ^^
Simon_Brezhnev  +   547d ago
I will admit i dont have to buy too many vita games. They do give us better Vita titles than PS3 titles.

Glad I didn't renew my membership.

lol...yeah getting dozens of free games for 50$ a year and awesome discounts is such a horrible deal.

Maybe he was referring they offer games he has no interest in ? Its not like we are all the same and like same games duuuuhhh !
Biggest  +   547d ago
He must not be interested in games at all.
Temporary  +   547d ago
There are too many games PS+ offer for someone not to enjoy any of them...he's just trolling...there's something for EVERYONE on the PS+ instant game collection...and most of the games are actually VERY good...

I understand someone may not enjoy a game they release one week, but to make a statement insinuating that the whole PS+ instant game service is not worth it is ridiculous.
Merrill  +   547d ago
I love my PS3, but PS PLUS has been lacking lately, unless you're in Europe where you get Sleeping Dogs for free in February.

I'll renew it if it gets better, until then I'll use that $50 for a Last of Us pre-order.

Lol we just got DarkSiders, Bioshock 2 and RE 5 Gold Edition. How exactly have they been "lacking". Also this isn't the big PS3 game that we are supposed to get for the month. See the EU blog shows monthly update while NA does weekly so we will more than likely get a full retail PS3 game in the coming week.
Merrill  +   547d ago
Darksiders is mediocore game(IMO), Bioshock 2 is terrible, and Resident Evil 5... do I even need to say how many things are wrong with that game?

I'm happy other people are enjoying the update, I'm just glad I didn't renew as nothing has been tickling my fancy for quite sometime now.
Godchild1020  +   547d ago
I understand that you may not like the games offered to you from Plus as of lately, but its not only about games that you have interest in, but games you would have never tried before.

There have been countless games offered to me on plus, that I would have never bought because I had little to no interest in it. I'm happy to be a plus member, because I can download a game for free at least once a week that I may not have played before. And If I did, I can have it on my Hard Drive and give my retail copy away.

I also favor the discounts on games due to being a plus member. I got LBPK for 10 dollars, Shank 2 and Warp for 2.50 and The Unfinished Swan for 3.75. I paid less than $20 dollars for games that would have normally ran me close to $80 or $100 dollars. Some of them I had no interest in and the potential lose of not liking them was at a minimum, because of the savings and the price for them.

That is just me though.

Dude, ps+ is far from lacking. I for one beat re5, bio2, and darksiders a long time ago. I was bummed that we didn't get duex x and won't get sleeping dogs. I got over it and I still think ps+ is one of the best things that ever happened to ps3. So keep your chin up son.

Yes!!!! glad i do my yearly renewal every year!!!! Never bought Darksiders so i can enjoy that one and Ninja Gaiden Sigma for vita!!! Hell Yeah.
Just beed more space because both my ps3 HDD (250 gig) and vita are at its capacity.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   547d ago
Nothing for me in this update but I'm still glad to be a PS+ member.
JaredH  +   547d ago
Awesome. I've never played a Ninja Gaiden game before and getting one for the Vita gives me even more incentive to try it.
Siren30  +   547d ago
prepare to have your ass kicked then if you never played a ninja gaiden game before
Campy da Camper  +   547d ago
Lol that's the truth!
cfountain  +   547d ago
Great update for me.

and then Sly 4: Thieves in Time next week.
CaptainYesterday  +   547d ago
Pretty good might try Ninja Gaiden, I'm jealous that the European PlayStation Plus Subscribers are getting Sleeping Dogs though!
Godchild1020  +   547d ago
Sleeping Dogs is part of their February update. US gamers still don't know what they are getting for February.

EDIT: I would like to point out that in January I think the US Plus offering was a bit better than the EU one. After looking it over on both sides. The US got the better deal. We got Darksiders, Mega Man 9 and 10, Nba Jam on fire for the PS3. That is 5 games compared to the 3 EU got. And we also got a full retail Vita game and a downloadable Vita game, EU got 2 download titles for the Vita.

I judged the offering incorrectly because we get the update on a week to week basis, while EU plus users know what they are getting at the beginning of the month.

Great game to get for free! Then again like CaptainYesterday said we should be getting Sleeping Dogs!
CaptainYesterday  +   547d ago
Hopefully we will it looks like a great game! I'm such a sucker for open world games :)
Avalanche  +   547d ago
Awesome we get Sigma and EU gets Sleeping Dogs...../Sarcasm
Ultr  +   547d ago
damn I really want that Ninja Gaiden!!!
boybato  +   546d ago
could be because scee has a good relationship with squenix Europe. As you can see they also have some sales for FF titles.
teedogg80  +   547d ago
I'm interested in getting PS+ but most of the games they give away I have already played.
TooTall19  +   547d ago
Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the first game I got for PS3! I really enjoyed Section 8: Prejudice when it came out.
lovegames718  +   547d ago
I want sleeping dogs. EU is very lucky!
PhoenixRising37  +   547d ago
I love this game. one of the few to offer a great challenge but be fun at the same time. not for the faint of heart though. definitely worth trying if you haven't done so yet, after all, it's free!!
ZoyosJD  +   547d ago
Sweet, I've been looking to get some older difficult titles like NG or Vaquish, but spent so much on collectors editions lately I decide to hold off. I am definitely renewing when E3 rolls around.
ilikeyou  +   547d ago
its fair EU getting better content since we pay alot more for everything related to gaming.
admiralvic  +   547d ago
Japan pays even more and gets far less... so try again.
cpayne93  +   547d ago
Was planning to buy ninja gaiden glad to get it on plus.
lovegames718  +   547d ago
Theres a reason EU pays alot more its not like Sony is just singling you guys out.
Cam977  +   547d ago
I'm running on free month trials stacked up right now but when that's lapsed I won't renew due to space limitations on my poor old 80GB baby. He is playing a film for me right now.
chrispseuphoria  +   547d ago
I'm looking forward to playing Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus. I have always wanted to pick it up but couldn't justify paying $20-$40 for it after the debacle of Ninja Gaiden 3. Now that it's free, I'll definitely check it out.

If it wasnt for plus my vita would be collecting dust. i love all these free games i missed!
WeAreLegion  +   547d ago
Collecting dust? Do you play video games?
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   547d ago
Yep I sure do. Do you?
WeAreLegion  +   547d ago
Yes. Currently playing Ni No Kuni, EDF 2017: Portable, Just Cause 2 (Always...), and some of the newer levels for LBP Vita.

What do you play? Any Vita games you missed?
axerated  +   547d ago
Sweet, been wanting to pick this game up for a while, not to mention my new memory card comes tomorrow so I'll actually have space for it, yeeeaaah!
Kingthrash360  +   547d ago
I'm loving ps plus...... But... I've already bought ninja gaiden full price.... Wishin I could go back in time right now, but on the bright side people who don't have it will love it... Not to mention the perfect timing, ninja gaiden2 is around the corner this may sway some players to buy it after playing part 1
