October PS+ Includes Far Cry 3, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen & Street Fighter X Tekken (EU)

Sony have been in touch to let us know next months PS+ games for Europe and as usual there are some corkers.

October’s big game is Far Cry 3, one of our favourite games from last year, and joining it will be a reboot of an Amiga classic, namely Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. (Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Far Cry 3, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, PS Vita, PS3, Street Fighter x Tekken, Touch My Katamari)

Man.... Month after month the NA PS+ has paled in comparison to EU's. This is just getting insane how amazing EU's offerings are compared to ours. Congrats to you guys, but NA and JP have to step it up big time. It's embarrassing at this point how much EU is dominating in terms of PS+ goodness. I'd pay extra just to get some of the games you guys are getting...

It is about all we in Europe seem to be able to brag about ;)
Raf1k1  +   558d ago
Yay for Europe lol.

After I read about Far Cry 3 yesterday I expected the other games to be "meh".

I was wrong though as Dragons Dogma is one I've been wanting to play and I don't mind giving fighting games a good bash even though I'm crap at playing them.

320GB is pretty full with another 8-10 games from PS+ in download list. I need to get 1TB drive for PS3. My 16GB Vita card is also full with 6-8 Vita games on the PS3 for when I want them. Now need the 64GB card.

Okay. Sony are getting their sh*t together in a big way at the minute!!

I would gladly trade FC3 and DD on plus for two week early ps4 release....
macethedon  +   557d ago
@Campy da Camper

What about the fact that we pay $150+ more than you 'muricans for the PS4, will you be willing to trade that.

hey u guys get all the releases 1st and PlayStation is #1 here at EU/ME regions
fardan85  +   558d ago
I was planning to get Far Cr3 this month and I always wanted to play Dragons Dogma but didn't buy it because I got burnt with Capcom in the last few years. Amazing update, I hope I don't get screwed out like last time "I got NBA 2k13 instead of Spec ops :( "..
Sanquine90  +   558d ago
Maybe because Europe supports the playstation brand beyond 'Merica. But the next genneration is coming and the playstation brand is dominating again. The american market is more important than ever before so i think playstation plus will improve
rageus  +   558d ago
I'm pretty sure you can just make an EU account on your PS3. As for store credit you can purchase prepaid cards online and receive the code by email.
sephiroth420  +   558d ago
yeah you can, ive done it numerous times with an american account, then they started having region lock on certain games and demos, thus pissing me off and making me stick to the eu account, i dont know if the eu games have a region lock on them so that american users cant use them. but that might have been becuase the game wasnt out in EU yet.

don't complain! in Malaysia, we just get Sleeping Dogs replacing Hitman from last month! PS+ is a bit cheaper here though so I'm not complaining.

you didnt miss much, hitman was kinda shit, it definately has nothing on the new splinter cell.
Magicite  +   558d ago
@sephiroth420 are u sick or what? I agree that blacklist is great, but Hitman was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

It might simply be that there are more EU PS+ members than NA.

Sony offers publishers a set amount of money to make there game available free to PS+ members for a certain amount of time. If there are more EU PS+ members than NA then the EU PSN may be able to offer publishers more money than NA PSN and can therefore make better games available more often.
Campy da Camper  +   557d ago
That's a very good point. I'm curious now as to what those numbers are. America plus vs Europe.
admiralvic  +   557d ago
Sadly there are a lot of possible answers and the truth might be that every situation has a different answer.

Some others include...

1) EU has multiple languages, so Sony works closer with companies to get games out there.
2) EU is better managed.
- Community members are more talkative and playful. Like we've seen them rumor / hint at things, where as US is typically "Yes! That game is fantastic" or "We're working on making things better".
- People constantly tell them that we don't want fighters, yet we constantly end up getting more fighters. I enjoy the genre, but it's WAY over represented in terms of genre.
- US does a trivial survey. Knowing what we like most each week means absolutely nothing for the future. Like getting a day 1 sale might be important to me, but I will never vote for it if I don't like the games. EU on the other hand looked at what genre people liked and revealed the information in hopes of trying to make people more happy. Who knows if it did anything, but it certainly looks and sounds better than "which item did you like the most or was it nothing?" each week.
- US seems to be behind on some things. Like Orc Attack was confirmed for a day, then it was revealed that it would actually be God Eater that releases.
- EU gets 2 Vita games, where as we might get one and a PSP game or two lesser digital titles.
- It's also entirely possible that people in Europe try harder than the US. They're certainly getting better results and US seems to shy away from problems citing silly excuses. "We would do monthly, but some people complain about us making errors, so it's weekly."

Amazing update.

Far Cry 3 and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen!!

PS Plus is worth every cent.
g-nome  +   558d ago
Ridiculous , I do not have the time to play all the free games. And GTA5 is waiting ....
awesomeperson  +   558d ago
I know, it's ridiculous that I feel buried under games to play, especially when so many of them are free. Sony's killing us :(
Salooh  +   558d ago
Don't say that. It's never enough !! :D
We want more and better !!! XD .
Great month for sure :P
TheGrimReaper0011  +   557d ago
I know you're joking, but it really is the case sometimes. Not that I'm complaining ^^
But I havent even beaten the games of august and still have games on my vita
4 games came out i really wanted: rayman legends, killzone mercenary, kingdom hearts 1.5 hd remix and guild wars 2 (account got hacked >_< )
And then we still have GTA 5, Beyond Two Souls, GT6, Puppeteer, assassins creed 4, watch dogs AAHH MY GOD!
And then I havent even touched upon the ps4 and its upcoming games!
My wallet hates me! I ask for money, but it makes excuses that it has no money! ^^
RedSoakedSponge  +   558d ago
awesome games! but i was hoping for something a little better for Vita since i own Katamari and dont care for SFXT. Hopefully the discounted games in october are worth a look.

FAR CRY 3 !!!

I am so glad i just made the switch from 360 to PS3 a few days ago and bought PS+

I wanted this game so much!!

Campy da Camper  +   557d ago
Welcome to the winning team. If you haven't yet gone through the back catalog I highly recommend the infamous series. Uncharted of course and little big planet. That game is really awesome. Oh, heavy rain was fantastic, too.
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   558d ago
Sweet. I meant to get Dark Arisen months ago but ran out of money, so I'm pretty happy now.
JimmyLmao  +   558d ago
Do you happen to know if it is a sequel to the first game?
or will I be fine playing it without playing the first game?
thnks :)
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   558d ago
It's an add on to the game. Dark Arisen comes with Dragon's Dogma included I believe.
KentBlake  +   558d ago
It comes with the original game included. It's a 100 hour+ journey.

And it's awesome.
Mikelarry  +   558d ago
i have heard nothing but good news about far cry 3. while the competition game of the month is rainbow six vegas REALLYY!!!!!!
rageus  +   558d ago
HAHA Sony coming through for gamers! I got Dragon's Dogma at launch and completely refused to buy it again for the Dark Arisen. Now we get it for free!

PS Plus is awesome.Full stop.

My ps+ backlog..
Ico HD ,Shadow of the Colossus HD , Hitman Absolution , Spec Ops , Sleeping Dogs , Xcom , Nfs Most wanted , Jak 1,2,3 HD.
I'll just have to skip some awesome games.
beepbopadoobop  +   558d ago
Im having the same problem with backlog! Managed to get time to plat spec ops (awesome game) completed sleeping dogs when it was released (awesome game) and got the missus playing through the jak and daxters (awesome games) but still so much to play, including mass effect 3. Not to mention the pile of 10 disc games im yet to complete and gta starting this afternoon! arghh more hours in the day please!
Harpers_Ferry  +   558d ago
Glad to see more people will have the chance to give Dragon's Dogma a shot. It's a great game that I think a lot of people may have passed over for one reason or another. The extra content is great too, and worth a download for those who only played the original release.

That being said, I'll go all selfish here and hope we get none of these in NA as I already own them all. Awesome selection, though.
Spontogical  +   558d ago
Far Cry Fucking 3!!!!

Hell to the yes!

Nearly every game I've put on my amazon wishlist is vanishing due to PS+.

PlayStation is where it's at!!!
Magicite  +   558d ago
Theres a reason its called Play Station ^_^
solidboss  +   558d ago
who needs these games when we finally have gta v!!! =)
RevXM  +   557d ago
Im in no hurry to get GTA, a year or two from now its prolly on + also got a dozen friends who bought GTA anyways so Ill just borrow whenever they are finnished with the story, not all of them are big on MP.

While I wait I have a great backlog to enjoy.
Jak trilogy, Ico/Sotc, RDR, NFS MW etc.
Far cry 3 is definitively awesome news!
bjmartynhak  +   558d ago
UC3, BF3, AC3, FC3, I see a pattern here!

Half-life 3 confirmed!

Edit: Saints Row: The Third!

Plus is amazing. They keep updating it with games i own already but im fine with that. Last month i traded in the jak trilogy and assassins creed 3 because i could download them and i got splinter cell blacklist from it. Now i can trade in dragons dogma and far cry for rayman legends :D
meatysausage  +   558d ago
so glad Australia is EU, I wonder why the US get different stuff as the EU usually has better games

Dragons Dogma is one of my most favourite games this gen

What in the hell is it with Europe and amazing PS+ games! Dark Arisen just released earlier this year.

*Reads title*

Woot, loved Dark Arisen and wanted to try Far Cry 3.

*Reads (EU)*

Sigh, why do I even pay for PS+ in America.
RevXM  +   557d ago
Id try make a EU account if I were you.
Kind of shit to have multiple accounts with different games and friendslists. Dont know If you could access the subscribed games from a another account on your system though, but at least youd get to play them.
Campy da Camper  +   557d ago
Actually, I'm pretty sure you can. When killzone 3 demo came out for Europe or that weird afganisan glitch early release thing, I created an account and downloaded it. Then I switched to my USA account and played it.

....Aaaand NA gets the shaft, once again >:(

We still didn't have

1) NFS: MW

2) AC3

All those angered by this and more imp: No early announcement for NA, I urge you to write a tweet or two to @yosp or @CEOJackTretton. We won't get justice until we demand it.

I dont care much for Far Cry, I did not really like Dragons Dogma and Street Fighter X Tekken I already have so I really hope they bring some good stuff to PS+ North America.
