PlayStation Plus: November Preview

Blog.PS: It’s going to be quite the month for PlayStation fans. PS4 is almost here, and it’s going to be mega awesome when I fire mine up for the first time and already have two free games to play. Yep, both Resogun, the intense and beautiful shoot ‘em up from Housemarque(the amazing people behind Super Stardust) and Contrast, a unique 2D/3D puzzler platformer with a stunning art style will be available in the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members on November 15th. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Oh now they want to give us Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen the month the PS4 is out, instead of when EU got it. Bastards lol
xHeavYx  +   264d ago
We just got Kingdoms of Amalur too, those 2 games would take forever to finish.
And for my VITA I get Oddworld and Soul Sacrifice
xPhearR3dx  +   264d ago
Meh, I already beat that game on 360 and PC. I played the original Dragons Dogma on 360 and loved it. Would have loved to play Dark Arisen through Oct waiting for the PS4. Oh well.
AlexanderNevermind  +   264d ago
Don't forget Warframe is also available for the PS4 already (trailer looks insane). Man PS+ is no joke. I'm definitely going to have to upgrade my hard drive.

The only complaint I have about PS+ is that it is a hard drive destroyer. Oh well, the added expense of getting a bigger hard drive is fully justified when you consider all of the free content you get with PS+
thorstein  +   264d ago
@Eon It is and it isn't. I download quite a bit, play them and delete the ones I have beaten. If I want to play them again, I have to reinstall, but oh well.

What I am saying is sometimes you have to clean house. With PS+ the games are still available.

@heavy KOA isn't that long .. u can beat the story within 20 hours

Soul sacrifice on Vita for free is incredible. I payed full price for it on release and don't regret it at all.

MRMagoo123  +   264d ago
i got kingdoms of amalur a lil while back for free in Australia, but to anyone that has gotten it be it europe OZ US UK , do you guys get that bug where every time you enter a door and then exit it into a major city you have to watch the big entering the city for the first time cinematic, it pisses me off and i checked forums they say it wont ever be patched because the company that made it is now gone, same as the donwloadable content, i bought stuff and it never turns up in the chest no matter if i uninstall reinstall or what ever. I liked the game a lot but those 2 bugs piss me off big time.
GameSpawn  +   264d ago

I don't know about the Digital Version, but I know the retail version (which I have and played) did get a few patches before 38 Studios went bust to fix a few of the issues you mentioned as well as enable the ability to play each DLC. Granted not EVERYTHING was fixed, but most of the really annoying stuff was.

Also, NEVER sign in to the EA online crap. It actually dramatically increases the chance for lockups and glitches.

Also, DO NOT store the House of Ballads armor set until AFTER you complete the House of Ballads quest line and if you do store it NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER take it out again. If you EVER store and retrieve this armor set it re-flips the set's quest item flag and you will never be able to remove the set from your inventory EVER again. This glitch actually can happen to a lot of specific quest related items making them permanent residents in your inventory -- lucky quest items are either weight-less or so miniscule they don't take up space, but it is still extra line items of useless crap you have to wade through.

Regardless, I love my PS+ and it's one of the FEW, FEW, FEW, reasons I'm not selling my ps3.
wsoutlaw87  +   264d ago
Ha i know, ive still wanted to try this game. Resogun looks awesome.
wastedcells  +   264d ago
2 great ps4 games and still getting drive club. Plus knack in the future no doubt. Sounds good to me.
nirwanda  +   264d ago
A bit off topic but does anyone know if there will be any game demos at launch.
redknight80  +   264d ago
Yeah I have wondered the same. I am assuming some demos will be on the PSN at some point during the first week or so from launch.
Pintheshadows  +   264d ago
I'm pretty sure that every digital game has a demo. That is what Sony has been touting since the announcement anyway.
FamilyGuy  +   264d ago
I'm under the impression that every game except knack will have a demo on nov 15th. They actually went out of their way to tell us the knack demo would come a little after launch.
Earlier in the year they said every ps4 game will have a demo or way to try the game first when it releases. Demos, full game trials, f2p models or whatever, it's supposed to have every game.
It might've been at the february reveal.

sure there will be demos, but they ain't part of what PS+ offers.
when PS3 came out there were many demos to DL, i think it will be no difference with PS4.

"Oh now they want to give us Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen the month the PS4 is out, instead of when EU got it. Bastards lol"

Lol, yeah how dare they give ps+ subscribers awesome games for next to no money ... wait a minute! O.o

On a serious note, I bought Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen. Amazing game. Many people who played it say it's better than Skyrim! Personally I think Skyrim was funner to explore, and dogma has the superior combat. Both are great games but they are great in different ways. Play both! ;-)
Ch1d0r1  +   263d ago
For Skyrim well its fun on PC, i wish Skyrim used Demon's Souls fighting style. I hope thats how dogma is. Its gonna be lots of fun.

Right as i've been on the fence about getting a Vita, boom, soul sacrifice.I'll pick one up tomorrow while im finishing up some preorders.

So excited.Haven't played a handheld since pokemon red/yellow on gameboy
riceking  +   264d ago
soul sacrifice is a great game....
KwietStorm  +   264d ago
I know whenever I do decide to get a Vita, I'll have a stupid amount of games to download from my history. I've just been wondering if I still want one after the Vita TV announcement..
MAULxx  +   263d ago
I'd just wait for VitaTV unless your going to be playing alot on the go or on the toilet.
I'd rather play some vita games on my big screen.
stevehyphen  +   264d ago
I am excited for you. Vita is great. Forget the naysayers.

Get a big memory card.

Also, P4G is $10 off on PSN right now. Most people will tell you to buy it before anything else.
mrmarx  +   264d ago
i have a big memory card and ps plus filled it up quickly.. just like it did my 640gb ps3 hdd
Kingthrash360  +   264d ago
p4g....buy it before anything else.
akiraburn  +   264d ago
@DayZ As a just a quick thought I figured I would throw out, I'd recommend waiting just a few weeks, as Black Friday sales are right around the corner, and last year I was able to get my Vita from Amazon at a massive discount. At that time, the $250 Wifi model was bundled with Assassin's Creed, a 4GB memory card, and 3 months of PS+ for only $180. So if I were to guess, I'd think that during this Black Friday the Walking Dead Vita bundle could go down to $150, or perhaps even lower.

I'd also recommend getting at least the 16GB memory card so you don't have to keep bouncing games between your PS3/PS4 and the Vita. I was able to find a 16GB card on sale at Best Buy for $30, but when they were out Target price-matched it, so on the off chance that memory cards aren't also having good sale prices during the holiday, keep your eyes peeled and it's helpful to check over at cheapassgamer's forums every so often for info on those deals.

As for games to grab, I'm with Stevehyphen, Persona 4 Golden is perhaps one of the best games I have played in years. I spent months playing through the story, just thoroughly enjoying it. I'm on my second playthrough now, and I can't highly recommend it enough. I haven't touched Killzone just yet, but from all that I've heard it is supposed to be excellent. Next up for me will either be that or Ragnarok. Soul Sacrifice was fun, I just haven't had many people to play it with so I still haven't finished everything up with it. Hope this all helps.

My bundle came with a 4GB card. I ended up buying an 8GB card at the same time because I knew I had a bunch of games already because of PS Plus.

I got fed up and went back to get a 32GB card a week or two later.

Memory cards are not hot swappable, and swapping digital games is a nuisance. (When you delete a game, you delete the save, too. Gotta make sure you use online storage)

Edit: if you don't trade in or sell your games, then make sure you check the PS Store before buying a game. Example: Dragon's Crown and Killzone were both a few dollars cheaper than any retailer on day one, and they have remained that way. Those aren't the only games that way

thorstein  +   264d ago
I would second this as Digital Saturday is always ripe with deals.

But, I also would recommend Pokemon X/Y. They are good games if you have the 3ds or new 2ds.
remanutd55  +   264d ago
AT DayZ i would wait for black friday to get a psvita, 32 gb memory card, Little Big Planet, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time, Sonic&All Stars Racing Transformed, Persona 4, Killzone Mercenary, Guacamelee, Sound Shapes, Playstation All Stars Battle Royale and of course all the freebies from ps plus, anyways welcome to the psvita world.
wastedcells  +   264d ago
What about the 64 cards? When are those coming out? Japan has them already. That's what I've been waiting for before I buy another 32 card.
Toon_Link  +   263d ago
Enjoy that Vita! With all the content offered from PS+ you will have tons of fun.
Goro  +   264d ago
This is the first ever month i would have preferred to be a US Plus member.
I'm delighted Binary Domain is coming because now there will be people online so i can enjoy the multiplayer without having to wait 2 hours to start a game.
wsoutlaw87  +   264d ago
Ya i cant believe some of the games eu was getting like ac3 and ud in us were getting discounts.

Decided on getting kill zone merc instead of this last month.
Guess I made the right choice.
Might have to wait a bit since I'm on EU ps plus.
But still,great November offerings.

Son of a bitch I just bought contrast for PC.
stevehyphen  +   264d ago
It happens. I'm sure we've all bought games and then they show up on Plus.

A friend of mine has had it happen like five or six times where the game was free within a month of him purchasing it.
RioKing  +   264d ago
I hate PS+, my hard drive is maxed out because of it ;)
stevehyphen  +   264d ago
I know what you mean. I only have a 160GB. I'm thinking about buying a 2TB drive for my ps4 and then sticking the 500GB in my ps3.

Sadly, some fool will defend this, because it's their's to keep forever...

I'm getting the Xbox One (and PS4) in a few weeks and this is just SAD. Microsoft isn't even TRYING with that kind of pathetic offering.
patsrule316  +   264d ago
I don't have a PS3, but I've got a Vita and preordered a PS4. I have to say, I like every game they are offering this month for each system. I already own Soul Sacrifice, Binary Domain (360) and Dragon's Dogma (360), but psyched for Odd World (played it back in the day on the original Xbox), Contrast and Resogun! This month alone would be worth a year's subscription to PS+ if I had a PS3 along with the other systems I have or will get.
GirlOnFire  +   264d ago
Holy duck! More games for PS3 aww PS4 is almost here! I have too many games already! Omg I bought like 5 games on network from Sale of the Dead. I buried myself and Sony brings their dump truck! Love Plus :3
isa_scout  +   264d ago
Binary Domain was awesome I'd def recommend it to those that have yet to try it.The gameplay was a lot like Gears of War, but the story in my opinion was GREAT!!!
To bad I'll be to busy with Killzone and my PS4 to worry about any of these games except for Resogun and Contrast though.
RiPPn  +   264d ago
Wow fantastic month for me, I don't have a single one of them !!
LEOPARD1030  +   264d ago

There are many games to play and there is not time, with Plus the problem isn't the money, the problem is the fact that I dont have enought time to play.

The best service ever , I'll be PLUS for the rest of my life :D

I preordered Killzone SF and Battlefield 4 for PS4, maybe I must contract somebody to complete my games at PS3.
