PlayStation Plus March Update: Spec Ops: The Line Free for Members

+ Posted by Morgan Haro // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms
With Spring on the horizon, we figured it might be time to test a new format of delivering your PS Plus updates. This month, we’re providing an outlook of the major stuff hitting the Instant Game Collection in March with this update, but you’ll still want to check the weekly posts to see the discounts and any other freebies available to you as a PS Plus member.
To kick things off, the following games, displayed in no particular order, will be added to the Instant Game Collection throughout March! (Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Tekken 6)

Nice update. I will enjoy Spec Ops: The line. And damn The Cave came into the IGC fairly quickly. How well did it sell on the PS3?

This is a great time to pick up Sumioni: Demon Arts, I wanted that game to go on sale for a while now. Happy to see it for $7 dollars. Sony needs to release a bigger memory card size for the Vita and/or drop the price of the 32GB card, I need another one. I'm running out of space.

North America is actually getting 9 games this month!!!
Hey guys, America is getting EVEN MORE stuff than what is found in this article! On another page also found in Sony's official PS blog, it says were also getting these ADDITIONAL games for free to celebrate the Vita's 1 year anniversary:

Wild Arms (PS one Classic)
Patapon (PSP)
Piyotama (PSP)
Patchwork Heroes (PSP)

(So, that's a total of SIX Vita-compatable games this month (when combining Disgaea 3 and Tekken 6) AND THREE PS3 games).

That's a CRAZY total of 9 games!!!!! Finally they heard us when we were upset about the stuff EU was getting vs the crap we were getting.

Those 4 games are not part of the IGC. So, I don't think you need a plus subscription to get those games.

Which is a good thing for those that don't have plus, but want some free games. And for those that don't want to renew their subscription, they still have access to those games.

lol...celebrating the vita anniversary by giving away games that werent originally made for vita...awesome
FamilyGuy  +   774d ago
Wild Arms eh, i might just download that
Smashbro29  +   774d ago
I'm confused, you need to use the Vita to get these additional games?
thorstein  +   774d ago
@smash yes... those are for vita.
Silly gameAr  +   774d ago
I think Wild Arms is a PS1 classic that can be played on the PSP, Vita and PS3. I hope it can can played on the PS3 anyway.
guitarded77  +   774d ago
Wow... this is the first month that I don't own anything on the list. Good thing I have a 1TB hard drive coming in the mail tomorrow.
MuleKick  +   773d ago
Dammit. I quite literally just bought Spec Ops. Maybe 5 days ago. Ah well. I guess I'll try to sell it to someone.
grailly  +   774d ago
stacking was free on launch with PS+, this is not that surprising.
-Alpha  +   774d ago
Stacking was great, would love a sequel
ABizzel1  +   774d ago
For once the game of the month (Spec Ops), is one I already have. Time to sell it and download for free.

Download for free?
Yeah, I should pay for X-box live gold so I can play online for free.
badz149  +   773d ago
^^^
Fail troll is FAIL!

XBL Gold doesn't give you the game Spec Ops: The Line even if you pay the fee. You still need to buy the freaking game!
ABizzel1  +   773d ago
@GametimeUK

That's right you do have to pay for PS+, so I guess I just bought Spec Ops for about $1, seeing how we get to download on average 4 games per month.

Still a good deal to me.

Oh and actually I still had the game in the plastic, so I took it back to Wal-Mart and got me a $30 Gift Card that can go towards another year of PS+. Now that's GOLD worthy to me.

mi_titan27  +   774d ago
definitely time to upgrade to the 32gb vita memory card! all those discounts are awesome.

Amazon has a 32GB card for 75 dollars. http://www.amazon.com/32GB-...
mi_titan27  +   774d ago
i saw that price last night, just gotta wait till payday i hope it stays on sale.
Snookies12  +   774d ago
Even my 32 GB card is full already... Lol
born2live  +   774d ago
I know! I've got a 16 gb and a 32 gb, and they are both full, and a lot of it is ps+ stuff, and a lot of free games... When will they sell 64 gb cards? Actually, make it 128 gb and I'll get it, even for $250...(although it would probably be more expensive than that...)
LOGICWINS  +   774d ago
Unbelievable update!
noxeven  +   774d ago
Quite please with this. I loved spec ops when i played it before so anyone that hasn't really should the story is amazing even if the gameplay is a little off par at times. I really wanted disagia 3 and the cave which is awesome now I don't need to buy it. Maybe I need to upgrade to a 32 gig card.

Where did you get it and will it work in the ps slim? My old 500 hdd doesn't work with my new slim. Oh and not the newest model, but the older slim.
TheRacingX  +   774d ago
Check Newegg.com, they always have smokin deals on hdd's , I got my 1TB over a yr ago and paid $119, sure they're cheaper now

Problem with this was Spec Ops: The Line was an alright game with only it's story to truly drive it. It was for that reason I didn't get it. However, getting it for free is nice but in the month of March? I got Bioshock Infinite, God of War Ascension, and possibly that new Walking Dead game. Got no time for this at all!
Sharius  +   774d ago
lol, same here, this month i have tomb raider and god of war, and plus the whole uncharted series, so maybe i just add this game in my download list and play it later when i have some spare time
yoshiroaka  +   774d ago
Damn son! I renewed my plus yesterday and already got back my $50 and then some. I havent played any of the instant games for this month and all are pretty good games.

Now i just need the time to play them! -_-
OllieBoy  +   774d ago
Spec Ops, The Cave, and JD2. Holy crap...amazing update.
Energy-HL  +   774d ago

blackblades  +   774d ago
Awesome update, looks like I gotta delete more games on both systems, buying that 16gb was a mistake.Don't really care about disgaea3 I already have it on ps3 and still got a lot more to do on disgaea4.
dkeat  +   774d ago
Finally something nice!
GABRIEL1030  +   774d ago
PLUS you are the best product in video games far...far away...AMAZING
dkeat  +   774d ago
File size for Spec Ops: The Line is 5587 MB for those wondering.
ThatXboxGuy  +   774d ago
Man PS+ Sounds amazing.I might have to end up getting a PS3 soon if they drop the price.Tired of XBL tbh
SDF Repellent  +   774d ago
Wait Kansas,

I thought you already told us you got a PS3.

"I used to play on xbox a lot and i noticed i would make very, very stupid mistakes.Like, lose my car keys all the time, forget peoples names, walk into a room and forget why i went in there or pay to play online.

But then i switched to Playstation and all that changed.I don't know, maybe different consoles affect different people."

Com on Strongman, you and your alternate account and fake xbox logo, pretending to be a xbox fan, who are you fooling? LOL

Spec Ops is one of the best games I played last year. Great choice, Sony.
kB0  +   774d ago
well I never saw spec ops coming...same with tekken lol.

I only got 1 answer right, Disgaea 3 :P

I just sold my copy for 30$ 2 months ago lol...so this works out I kept wanting to buy it again! :D
chrispseuphoria  +   774d ago
Disgaea, The Cave and Spec Ops: The Line!? Awesome! It will be great to play Tekken 6 on my Vita as well.
SSJBen  +   774d ago
Finally Spec Ops get some justic. People who never played it, just GIVE IT A CHANCE. The first 2 missions starts off slow, but after that... just be prepared for a roller-coaster ride of mind clusterfucks.

You WILL question yourself at the end of the game.
Aceman18  +   774d ago
so true i was actually left speechless at the end of the game.
porkChop  +   774d ago
Same here. Very powerful ending, all of them. One of the best TPS I've played in the last few years.
profgerbik  +   774d ago
Told those mother fuckers it would be Disgeae 3! I also told those mother fuckers we would get more than just Plants vs. Zombies.. to quit your fucking whining.

Need to pick up Street Fighter X Tekken while it is half off also.

ScytheX3  +   774d ago
decent update, just funny with the exception of Disgaea, no one got it right with their prediction of what would be free after the games being teased.
porkChop  +   774d ago
I got all right except Tekken. I figured it would be DoA5 like EU got. The Cave was too obvious, as was Disgaea 3. Having played Spec Ops I knew it was going to be that game, it was very different and really challenged what to expect from a shooter. I'm really pleased with this update. Lots of great games, and I love the new monthly format.
Skate-AK  +   774d ago
PSP Tekken 6? That sucks. Rest of the update is great.
Hydralysk  +   774d ago
Definitely an amazing game to add to the instant game collection. For me, the 3 best games in 2012 were P4:G, TWD, and Spec Ops, Spec Ops was a welcome breath of fresh air from the recent glut of modern military shooters.
DivineAssault  +   774d ago
wow.. Thats pretty sweet.. I bought knytt underground, blaz blue, & retro rampage @ full price a while back damnit! oh well
