PS Plus Members Get Hitman Absolution in May...

The Instant Game Collection for EU members surpasses even more expectations in May, by giving it's members the impressive "Hitman Absolution" from Square Enix.
After some very impressive reviews and not even six months, the guys at Playstation EU dropped this Tweet a short while ago...

"PS Plus members: your headline IGC game for May will be.... *drumroll* Hitman Absolution. We'll reveal four additional titles next week."

I personally cannot wait!! (PS3)

Yeah the first year I signed up was rubbish!

been a member since the first day, i didnt even had a "rubbish" month since the beggining, sure there's discounts or games i dont necessarily HAD to get, but to call it "rubbish" would be simply ingrate and out of touch with reality, i am well aware that not ALL GAMES are made for my taste....but i wont spit in the soup and then call it "rubbish" too.
Sandmano  +   873d ago
I got it the first day. Compared to the second year First year plus was RUBBISH!!!! Stupid mini games and games that people already had so out of touch with reality ? No it's fact that the first year was rubbish compared to the second.0

Europe has it awesome for PS Plus.

Sony of America seriously need to try and get all those nice titles.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   873d ago
America get everything else though, more games, better prices/deals, everything is almost always on time and they always take priority. PS plus is the only good thing we have on the EU store.
jdktech2010  +   873d ago
Ok, then they won't mind when I don't renew my subscription. It sucks you guys don't get better deals and games and all that but if I'm paying hard earned money, I don't want to get shafted by the lackluster content. Granted, we haven't seen what US will get but EU got sleeping dogs, arkham city, ME3, Okami HD, etc. recently while we just caught up and got vanquish (which EU had early last year if I remember right) and demon souls (which is nice even if it's a 4 year old game).

I'm glad you guys are getting good content but it's kinda sorry to pay 50 dollars and get lackluster content. Again, I think PS+ is a good well intentioned service over here in America as we do get free games but I don't believe I will be re upping in June.

Anyway, I would LOVE to have Hitman this month as it's been on my radar for a while. Congrats to you european playstation gamers.

America shouldn't get screwed over with PS+ and the EU shouldn't get screwed over with everything else. If i had it my way we would all get the exact same content. There's just so many dumb barriers in the way, I mean if we can make an EU/NA/JPN account no matter what region we live in (Sony must know we do that) then why can't all of the games be available on every store officially?
I'm hoping the Playstation store gets a huge shake up for the PS4 and we get 99% of the same content in every region I'll let that 1% slide lol.
Baka-akaB  +   873d ago
I dont feel you guys are that screwed , you still get good games on us plus that we dont always have or wont have immediately .

Hell you still had Demon's Souls , super street fighter 4 AE , Borderlands , King of Fighters XIII and Spec Ops while some of the neat EU stuff are also popular games than many of us already had .

If anything your list made me think it's absolutely vital to have both accounts in plus

what if i tell you:

you can alway creat an EU account, buy plus member through prepaid card, download the game and switch to your main acc and play
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   873d ago
It's a great idea for the PS3, but the Vita not so much.
There are games on the US store that I REALLY want such as Dino Crisis 2, Legend of dragoon, Parasite Eve, Xenogears, Chrono Cross and so on. Problem is I want them for my Vita since they're ten times easier on the eyes on a small screen, Sony though decided we can only have 1 account on the Vita and it's also restricted to the memory card you use and switching accounts is a HUGE pain in the ass to be honest. You have to restart the Vita to factory settings and have an extra memory card to do so. It sucks! >_<
Baka-akaB  +   873d ago
It does suck but at least it's still possible . I usually just stick a whole month with either a jap or eu account before switching
Salooh  +   873d ago
It is possible because i'm doing it. I'm playing Ninja gaiden right now on vita. but when i'm done i will transfer the game to the pc and then restore the vita and get in europe account again. It's that simple but still annoying as hell ...
SlapHappyJesus  +   873d ago
I will give you this one.
Just grabbed on Steam for ten bucks.
Thought that one was a steal. Still do, but you still win this round.

I hope this 'PS Plus' thing continues at some stage, on some level with PS4.

I would happily pay a years sub on my (near future) purchase of PS4, especially if Gaikai, PS Plus and some other non-free features were included.

Please leave PS Home on PS3 though...PS4 would be better without it.
Rip-Ridah  +   873d ago
Just because you may not like PS Home does not mean that there are millions of other people who do not. I just dont follow that. You are not forced to open the app just as you arent forced to play a game you dont enjoy. PS Home on the PS4 has the potential to right many of the wrongs of the PS3 version. Some might even switch the words PS Plus & PS Home in your comment. I see the value in both services & hope they are expanded into the next gen.
sway_z  +   873d ago
I just think PS Home is a wasted resource on PS4 unless they stream the whole PS Home universe via Gaikai.

Sony should promote PS Home and use it as a unique selling point along with plus to keep PS3 going even longer.

Eventually PS3 (and 360) will be fully catering to the casual market as soon as PS4/720 become mainstream and the current gen falls as low as £99.

Makes sense to keep PS Home exclusively on PS3 for that casual market.


"If you don't like it, don't use it????"

Keep Calm, you acting like I rejected your girlfriend.

IIRC, PS Home is profitable for SONY so I don't see why they wouldn't carry it over.
MasterCornholio  +   873d ago
Thanks Microsoft.


OT: I always had interest in this title which is why I suggested it to Sony on numerous ocasions. I'm happy that its coming to plus.

Europe gets all the good plus games. Yeah we got demon souls but I beat that game 2 years ago. Gorman is fairly new. I guess you can't always get what you want. Unless you're rich!

Saw this coming a mile off, Tomb Raider will be EU August, it's a trend in single player games especially from SE, and the fact they get discounted to £15 within months of release.

Glad to see it again, wouldn't mind it's plat.

Dammit Sony. Slow down with these awesome games. Not had a proper chance to play through ME3, DOA 5, Bioshock 2, and Okami yet

Awesome. I'd still love to see Demons Souls in EU Plus.
Moncole  +   873d ago
Its a great game but if you really enjoy it you should buy it so you can support the devs.
Heavenly King  +   873d ago
Sony is obviously giving them money, so they have their support.
tigertron  +   873d ago
I was thinking about getting this, and once again, PS Plus delivers. :D
g-nome  +   873d ago
Can't keep up with all the great titles on psplus ...still have to finish Sleeping dogs and ME3.
ShiftyLookingCow  +   873d ago
Thanks to PSN cards, it is possible to get PS Plus for both US and EU. And I think EU Plus still has a 90 day extra offer.

Just the last two months make my EU Plus account worth it.
Salooh  +   873d ago
Shame. Already platinumed the game T_T . Lately Ps+ give me games i already completed or just bought them -.-
BlmThug  +   873d ago
Stoked :D This was nearly a purchase for me but now I can play it for free
GABRIEL1030  +   873d ago
PLUS in US is an amazing service for this month : " Demon's Souls" and "Soul Calibur", but in Europe is extraordinary the last month they released: Mass Effect 3, Dead or Alive 5 and for the next Hitman ¡ . C'mon US Plus, may you give us a great game for May?

"Plus" must continue Its incredible service in PS4 ¡

Glad I invested into a 1tb hardrive =D by the end of the year it,ll probably be full getting on to 50 games on it atm
lovegames718  +   873d ago
Im about to make an Eu account because this is getting ridiculous. I just need to make more room in my ps3 or just upgrade to a 1tb drive because my 250 gigs isnt cutting it anymore.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   873d ago
Yeah once my sub runs out for the US I think I will just go over to EU because this is ridiculously better in EU. They get all these great Triple A big releases and in the west we get indie downloadable games that i could just buy for 10 dollars if i really wanted them. These indie games are hit or miss for me. Some are good some are unplayable. I guess each one appeals to a different type of gamer.
CaptainYesterday  +   873d ago
The title should be EU PS Plus members.... I got my hopes up :"(
