PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection poll – the results are in

Countries: AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ

by Chris Howe

Hi everyone! I know you’ve been waiting a little while but I am happy to say that the results are now in for the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection (IGC) poll that we ran back in February.

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to read, participate in and feedback on the Blog. We had over 450 comments providing some great insights into your views on the service and some great suggestions for future Plus titles!

PlayStation Plus is a hugely important part of PlayStation now and we believe it’s providing an incredible service that offers excellent value for money for gamers. This value comes not just through the games in the IGC, but also in the 2GB cloud-based storage available, the exclusive Plus discounts and early access to betas and demos, amongst other benefits. (PlayStation, PS Vita, PS3)

Less shooter and more variety.

Agreed, but it's a bad sign they mentioned the top 3 when the 3rd choice (shooters) was well behind the other two. They should have just mentioned the top two as they were very close.

PS+ offers 2GB of cloud storage? I thought it was only 1GB all this time..... you learn something new everyday, lol.
GribbleGrunger  +   761d ago
Yeah, it was updated a while back. Probably because of the inclusion of the Vita.

Ahhh, thank you and you too Lucreto. I had just assumed it was 1GB shared between the vita and PS3.
Lucreto  +   761d ago
1GB for PS3 and 1GB for Vita.
CRASHBASHUK  +   761d ago
looks like the PlayStation + nation want RPG and action/adventure more then FPS
majiebeast  +   761d ago
Yeah and thats a good thing i am almost completely done with the FPS genre at this point KZ:SF only fps im looking forward to and maybe BF4 but it uses Origin.
ApolloTheBoss  +   761d ago
Yep and other people are starting to feel the same way. The 14% decline in overall sales for Black Ops 2 compared to MW3 should be a wake up call.

Ugh, Origin... It's the only reason I don't own BF3 on my PC.
H0TSHELLZ  +   761d ago
NOT ME i still love COD and FPS, hope we get a BF4 Beta !!!!
ABizzel1  +   761d ago
My 2 favorite genres, and that's pretty much what I felt the PS community enjoyed the most.
Redempteur  +   761d ago
The question is : what kind of rpgs will they provide ?
MoveTheGlow  +   761d ago
I'd love to see Resonance of Fate. On the actiony side, Dragon's Dogma would be an easy pick considering they have a followup.
Sharius  +   761d ago
i don't think dragon's dogma is the good choice, the dark arisen abut to release, accord to some source it has no trophy, so if they offer the dogma sure the arisen sale will decrease, the most promise choice is dragon age 1 or 2, seeing the dragon age 3 will be surface soon
andibandit  +   760d ago
I just hope it's not more JRPG's
ziggurcat  +   761d ago
there are barely any FPS games on PS+ instant game collection as it is... actually, i've seen no FPS games ever.
rustyspoon80  +   761d ago
We've had Bioshock, Dead Space and Deus Ex in the UK.
Hellsvacancy  +   761d ago
Im hoping MAG gets released on PS+ eventually, not many players these days
TheUndertaker85  +   761d ago
MAG 2 needs to be announced first. MAG would be a better game if it'd just got a little more support and fail safes for the future.

No point in trying to play MAG. Can't even get a game of Aquisition going. Domination is an afterthought.
Blastoise  +   761d ago
Hurray for RPG's

But why does everyone hate Puzzle games? I got a lot of fun out of Lumines
Minato-Namikaze  +   761d ago
Had no idea how fun Lumines was until i got if for my vita. I literally played it for a month straight when i 1st got my vita.
@Blastoise & Minato

I'm looking forward to the Vita and Lumines as well! I just ordered an awesome bundle online with like 6 games, 3 Memory cards one being 32 gb, and a bunch of other accessories all for 265. Lumines really caught my attention though, I LOVE games where Music is a factor and its fun. Been planning on getting the game ever since I wanted the Vita.

Looking forward to that game though! I also got NFS: Most Wanted. Super stoked :D
despair  +   761d ago
Not hate on puzzle but its low on the list of genres, just means people want to play the others more than puzzle games. I'm the same way, I love a good puzzle game, but give me a choice and it will be lower than many other genres on my list.

Plus PS+ has already gotten quite a number of puzzle games so maybe that's a factor as well (probably the main factor).
MuhammadJA  +   761d ago
Because people are stupid and don't like thinking?
lovegames718  +   761d ago
I am very satisfied with my Ps plus and even have an even bigger backlog due to it. Ive been a plus yearly member since day and just added another year.
Roper316  +   761d ago
They see what we want and give us the opposite. Look how little the fighting games are rated but we seem to get one every month.
KentBlake  +   761d ago
Enough with the fighting games! We already got one of each big franchise, and I still haven't even started one of them.

I like this poll result, since they mirror a lot of my tastes.
tommygunzII  +   761d ago
When I voted for this I had Dragon's Dogma in mind.
violents  +   761d ago
This is for the EU PS+, Is there going to be a poll for US PS+? Or has there been one and I missed it?
ThePsychoGamer  +   761d ago
This is just for EU, They had a poll for US Plus members back in January.

Though RPGs did pretty well in that poll to (If I remember right JRPGs had the most votes)
violents  +   761d ago
Damn I dont really care for jrpg's, although some rpg's are ok. Im more of an action adventure game guy. And some fps but call of duty has beat that to death, I want a real sim style fps no more arcade style bs!
raiden-49  +   761d ago
I think when stories about ps+ are made on n4g they should but what country its for I know it will get less hits but its annoying going on to the wrong one.
talisker  +   761d ago
The very first line lists countries.
AkatsukiPain  +   761d ago

The very 1st line says the countries this poll was taken from lol.

they should run these polls every year for PS+, brings more democracy in what we want for PS+, i think this is cool.
AkatsukiPain  +   761d ago
Yup I agree with you on that. It can also help sony out on what games playstation gamers want most that way they can keep delivering fresh new content to its users which they actually do very well.

More STORY, less GORY
Boom. Best tagline ever for any future campaign rallying for games with more substance and variety, and less reliance on... the same framework that has been used since the dawn of mankind?
lex-1020  +   761d ago
"Since its introduction in June 2012, subscribers have been able to download an array of fantastic titles such as Red Dead Redemption, Batman: Arkham City, Sleeping Dogs and, as of next month, Hitman Absolution."

Man. Europe gets all the good stuff.
Ozmoses  +   761d ago
I wish they would do a poll for the US PSN Store.. I saw someone on the blog today mention that they always give fighting games away on PS+

But, regardless I'm so swamped with content and games it doesn't matter.

PS+ gives me the chance to experience stuff I would otherwise never purchase.

Had this been an xbox poll, the 3rd category wouldve won by a long shot
AkatsukiPain  +   761d ago
Lol they do love shooters. Most the ppl I know that own a 360 play mostly fps games.

abzdine  +   761d ago
playstation community has some good tastes.
wonder what next RPG will be
USMC_POLICE  +   761d ago
I was going to say I don't remember getting red dead, arkham city, or absolution. And I've had plus since day 1
clintagious650  +   761d ago
Not sure or it works with ps plus but I know u can create an account for other regions. It worked for grabbing demoes & games that werent in the US PS Store but not sure or it'll work with plus.
