Of course they are, glad to see these addition (even though spec ops is old). didn't buy NFS and was tempted the other day, glad i held out, same with lord of the rings lego for vita

Snookies121491d ago

We just got Spec Ops a few months ago. Kinda curious as to why that's back so soon.

Either way, NFS is an awesome addition to Plus!

BadboyCivic1491d ago

I'm jealous. We got Fable and AC2...

Fireseed1491d ago

Yeah but we get to keep ours, so there is that.

ApolloTheBoss1491d ago

This is for EU PS+. They never got to play Spec Ops. NA August line up hasn't been announced yet.

Snookies121491d ago (Edited 1491d ago )

@ApolloTheBoss - Ah okay... They should REALLY put EU in the title of the article or something. -_- They need to put NA, EU, etc. in every title that involves a certain region's PS+ news...

Grindlefly1491d ago (Edited 1491d ago )

Well I have no intention of not keeping plus for the next few years so I will keep my games too :)

GrandTheftZamboni1491d ago

I started deleting some of my PS Plus games as my 320GB is full. It's raining games on PS Plus.

kayoss1491d ago (Edited 1491d ago )

Hahaha have fun keeping your two games forever, after you beat it 4 times. Because on your fifth play through of those two games I will be deleting my older games that I got from ps+ and downloading new games to play. When you finish playing through fable for the fifth time, I would have finish 5-6 different games. Lol. If you were being sarcastic I take everything I typed back.

Ausbo1491d ago

if you delete the downloads can you download them at a later time for free? or are they gone forever?

G20WLY1491d ago

^Ausbo, yes you can, as they stay in your download list. You just go to that list and select 'download' next to the game you want on HDD again. :)

AllroundGamer1491d ago

Ausbo you can download them again for free if you are still a PS+ member.

CapsuleMonkey1491d ago

Ugh, Kinda hate when Sony does this with plus...they really start rehashing the game givaways....Well for new plus members this is good, but this is stuff I've been gotten for free as a loyal plus member.

abzdine1491d ago

PS+ is the best thing that happened to gaming in so long time

kupomogli1490d ago


This is Europe's list. They're not rehashing anything. If I were you I'd still complain though. Europe gets better games. They didn't get Spec Ops the line a couple months ago, but we haven't received Dead or Alive 5, MGS HD Collection, Okami, Ico and SotC Collection, Ratchet and Clank Collection, Red Dead Redemption, Batman Arkham City, and more.

IceKoldKilla1490d ago

Spec Ops isn't back. Read more. This is for Europe! US got Spec Ops in January or February and by the way I loved the story! Graphics were cheap. I really hope NFS Most Wanted comes to US in August. I'm tired with GT5 and no money. I want NFS Most Wanted for free! Oh and Mafia II would be awesome too!

Its a great subscription to have because we get such a variety of games to play. As for the hater that stated that its not worth it because we don't own the games; I have a question for you @fireseed how many times do you honestly think that your gonna play AC2 and Fable 3 after you have completed them. Would you really care if a year after your subscription lapses if you didn't have access to those titles? At the end of the day we have our consoles to play and enjoy video games. Whether we own those games or not is irrelevant. Not to mention if you really wanted that particular game (AC2), you would have purchased it when it came out 3-4 years ago.

Campy da Camper1491d ago

Totally agree. Perfect example is when the released infamous 2. I got the plat so there is literally nothing left for me to do in the game. I'm not going to just jump back on in a year and run around. Same with little big planet, spec ops, uncharted 3...once I beat the game and get the platinum trophy I'm pretty much done with them.

QuickdrawMcgraw1491d ago

Holy that was a very reasonable response.

ZodTheRipper1491d ago

I have not even the time to play through all games I've bought new let alone the games I get through PS+. Sometimes, I enjoy some PS+ games even more than those I bought by myself, so this service is great to get introduced to games you wouldn't consider buying. I'm not planning on unsubscribing as long as PS+ continues how it is.

blackblades1491d ago

A 1,000 agrees on this comment.

@Campy da Camper
Another true comment

CommonSense1491d ago

If there situation were reversed, the sony apologists would be saying exactly the same thing about keeping the games.

The hypocrisy is so transparent, and it's really pathetic.

AbortMission1491d ago

That's why I like PS+. I get to play lots of games for free, get the trophies and then move on to more games. I don't hoard onto every single game I play, only games that I feel are masterpieces

Drabent1491d ago

He just mad cause they only got 2 games lol, and we got how many 1-2-3-4-5-dizzy^-^

MazzingerZ1490d ago

Wasn't those X360 free games stuff only running through the rest of the year? In that case why to even bother compare it with PS+? In that case it is just one temporary move to keep X360 owners half happy so they don't jump on the PS4 hype-train...

kreate1490d ago

I would of applaud Microsoft if they gave free games from at least middle of the gen up until now instead of throwing us a bone at the end of a generation.

But free game is still free which is good. Looking forward to the next cycle of games Microsoft gonna give us. Hopefully its good.

abzdine1490d ago

i hope the tons of retail games i played since 2007 were given by PS+ cause they're in the closet and i havent touched many of them since i first finished them. So better not own the game if it's like this :D
And you know the funny part, those same haters are in boner mode for the Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 which are gonna be "offered for FREE" on XBOX Live.

Don't feed the trolls, it just makes them worse

showtimefolks1491d ago (Edited 1491d ago )

and MS had trouble delivering halo 3 and AC2, seriously

i don't care how much of a fanboy you are there is no denying the fact PSN-Plus is a awesome service and with launch of ps4 we will get one subscription for 3 devices

keep it going sony sooner or later haters will have to realize just how valuable plus service is

Campy da Camper

110% agree

but this is internet/n4g, common sense doesn't exist

kayoss1491d ago

Actually I'm baffled by the fact that by now some people are still skeptical about how amazing ps plus is.

devwan1491d ago (Edited 1491d ago )

@kayoss It's the green eyed monster - it doesn't let some people think rationally at all.

Personally I think ps+ is the best thing to happen to gaming since... maybe since ps2.

TheGrimReaper00111490d ago

Well the biggest critisism (wrote that totally wrong -_-) that ive seen is that it is actually renting games, because if your subscription ends, you cant play the games anymore
But like I read on this post
When I beat a game or played it alot, Im kinda done
For instance, Rayman origins on vita
Luved the hell out of it, platinumed it (my first actually XD) but deleted and prob never playing it again
besides, if there is a game i wanna have, that shows that that game is actually worth its price
It is nice to know that with xbox live you'll get 2 games a month for free for always, but its said that Assassins creed 2 and halo 3 are some of the best games they'll offer?
Those games are like 5 or 4 years old! I can get both for 10 euro!
With infamous I saved 30€
LBP - 20€
Battlefield 3 - 40€
Wipeout 2048 - 45€
Rayman Origins - 40€
Last Virtue - 40€
Ico and shadow of the colossus - 40€
Seriously, i can go on and on!
If they'd just stop and think, theyd see the value that is to be found here

Koyes1491d ago

My subscription ran out last month and I am going to renew again this coming month, so my query is; I have BF3, Payday and SR3 in my cart, however I cannot add them to my download list. Can I add them to my DL list in any way or will adding them to my cart suffice so that when I renew, I can DL BF3? Inbox me, please. Thank you

The_Klank1491d ago

No, putting them in the cart will do nothing as far as I know, you need to have them on your download history list so that when they are removed from Ps+ you can still access them at a later date. You can cancel any download and it will still be on your list.

I do it with alot of Vita games, start the download then cancel it so that when I do get a Vita I will have the previous games on offer.
