"But... But... North America doesn't get good games!"

Doesn't change the fact that EU PS Plus gets MORE good games...and earlier too.

Some ppl here in EU says that US gets cool stuff :D not EU

As far as IGC goes we get better games imo and we usually get them first. The US store in general gets better games, features, avatars etc and usually gets them first.

still can't purchase CSGO and Retro City Rampage took ages. Also, even though people paid for a Season Pass for Walking Dead our content arrived late. Throw in the fact if a game gets priced $50 on the store it will likely be £50 on our store. It really shouldn't work that.

Oh well ...Germany doesn't even get any mature games on PS Plus. Talk about unfair now. But it's still the best subscription service ever made :)

Yep I got Hitman Absolution beat it last night, pretty decent I'm also currently playing through Okami HD, I love PS Plus
EVILDEAD360  +   938d ago
Yes but I see why EU members brag about Plus so much. Sleeping Dogs is a good pickup for the service though.

"Doesn't change the fact that EU PS Plus gets MORE good games...and earlier too."

For some reason, this reminds me of a fat kid upset they didn't get enough sprinkles in their ice cream, as soon as they wanted.

Point being: Regardless the region, PlayStation Plus is awesome.

My copy of sleeping dogs is still sealed lol! Oh well, since i get it free i might as well download it :-)

I think the North American store is month's behind the EU store. The EU has had so many good games its not even funny. As far as Plus goes I prefer the EU store

Then get a EU plus account, it's not difficult.

What kinda irks me is the amount of Vita titles EU PS Plus members are getting. DOA Plus, Zero Escape, MGS Collection etc.

Sony keeps padding the US collection with PSP games and low budget Vita titles. I'd like to see P4: Golden on Vita sometime this year to revive my faith in the service.
porkChop  +   938d ago
Yup, I agree. The way NA Vita subscribers are treated is insulting. Most of the games we've gotten have been "filler" garbage that didn't sell. I've got a PS3 as well so it's still worth it for me, but I feel sorry for the Vita-only subscribers.

The 6 permanent IGC games are being switched out in June though, so I'm hoping for some good Vita games. Not sure what they'd put up though since the "permanent" games are supposed to be Sony 1st party games. I could see PSAS:BR for both Vita and PS3, not sure what else though.

4 playable Vita titles coming to Vita this month, that's pretty good! I cannot wait to try those games out.
jdktech2010  +   938d ago
EU got this a year yea
wolokowoh  +   937d ago
In video game years, 3 months= a year. Are we on Mercury? It hasn't even been a year since Sleeping Dogs was released.

I thought it was last fall...meh, so I didn't fact check

I'm sick of children acting as if ONE games suddenly erases months of garbage.

Nice. Never got around to playing it before, so now I'll have a chance do try True Crime: Hong Kong, er, Sleeping Dogs.
Clover904  +   938d ago
It's an absolutely amazing game. I'm looking forward to be able to go back and play it again.
JAM_brz  +   938d ago
Why the game is so amazing? Everybody are saying this but nobody said why... I never played, just read from others that the game have a excelent story...

Still, I will try the game, of course...
matrixman92  +   938d ago
why so many fighting games? I would honestly rather have CoD declassified over another fighting game
Welcome2Die  +   938d ago
Nice, now I can play another game while I save some money!
Ozmoses  +   938d ago
I'm more than satisfied with PS+... Between that and the new games I buy, I have too many damn games to play.

I literally have 25+ games I haven't even played yet.. Some from PS+, some I actually bought whether physical or digital.

My backlog of games just keeps growing... I'm glad school is over this week.. I can catch up atleast a little bit.

Yes same here. I just completed God of War: Ascension and now playing through Uncharted 3 Multiplayer, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Luigi's Mansion 2, Sleeping dogs soon, Jak 3, and Bowser's inside Story and some more! @_@
sprinterboy  +   938d ago
Why do so many people have copies of games sealed etc or 25 plus games they have not played yet, by the time you play them you could have bought of store for discounted price or got it cheap in a games shop, by something not to play it, way to go on spending more on your hobby than you should be doing. Gamers should learn to buy and save lol and they say were in a recession

I didn't say they were sealed... I mean I just have bought them and not played them yet...

It's my way of leisure.. I smoke weed and play video games..

I'm a disabled American veteran and I'm currently going to college. money isn't an issue.

I actually save the majority of my money even though I own a lot of games.. I just smoke and game..

I don't drink, I don't have rent, I don't spend money on other things like many other people do.

I also take advantage of used games and deals. I don't always buy brand new.. I mean I like to experience games.. and PS+ lets me do that on games I would never have considered purchasing.

It's just like anything else or any other hobby.. A person always wants the next best thing on the market. In this case it happens to be games. So from that perspective it isn't too farfetched to think that many people have a backlog of games still waiting to be played.

Wow...Sleeping Dogs isn't that old. Must not have done so well for PS+ to offer it up for free so soon.
Army_of_Darkness  +   938d ago
It sold shit loads during the Christmas/ boxing day holidays for the ps3 version cause i had a very hard time finding a store that wasn't sold out of it. 360 version had plenty of copies though.

Gotta prep for the backup - migrating my PS3 HDD to 1tb might take a while.

g-nome  +   938d ago
God of War HD ,Sleeping Dogs , LOTR War in the North , DOA5 , Vanquish ,Me3 , Hitman ... only thing we need is more HD space.
Krew_92  +   938d ago
Wow, great lot of games. Looking forward to Tuesday for Sleeping Dogs, and the following Tuesdays for BlazBlue.
CaptainFaisal  +   937d ago
It May Update? it has to update :P
but seriously why sleeping dogs, these guys keep giving us games we already own or don't want! they should do a new system where they give us 5 choices every month and then do a survey and tell people what do you want for this months games! that's better! Who agrees? Spread the word!

Krew_92  +   937d ago
We don't want? Everything is subjecting, I and many other people want Sleeping Dogs. Although someone of us already owned the game (I owned it on the PC) we should let others experience the game.

Although a survey would be nice, they're already doing enough by just simply giving us these games for free. discounts and cloud saving would be enough as it is. So I'll take anything free from PS+ without entitlement.
Sharius  +   937d ago
about a month for E3, still remember what they give us last year and just wonder will they do this again this year?
wolokowoh  +   937d ago
Usually freebies are PSN games or are very old before US Plus puts them. Hopefully US Plus is learning to put more recent and extremely popular games up like Europe with their Arkham City GOTY, God of War, Hitman, etc. If we get another fighting game on Vita, it better be DOA5 Plus, not Ultimate MvC. I love Blazblue and it's step in the right direction from PSP fighting games(why no PSP RPGs) but that's 3 fighting games in a row. Give use Escape Plan, Super Stardust Delta(with dlc), Lumines, Unit 13, Metal Gear HD(even though I just bought it), Stranger's Wrath, PS All Stars. If you really want to be impress us, Sly: TiT, Soul Sacrifice, or Guacamelee!

WHY isn't Sleeping Dogs available yet in the US?
Still shows demo & purchase option...
