US PlayStation Plus: December Preview

Kristine Steimer // Sr. Community Specialist writes: GRID 2 launched to critical acclaim earlier this year for its successful mixing of arcade and simulator styles. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, on the other hand, is more of a kart racer, complete with power ups but the ever-shifting tracks means your badass kart can also transform into a plane or boat. (Borderlands 2, Dyad, GRID 2, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed, Urban Trial Freestyle)

Borderlands, pretty awesome! I bought it on PC for like 10 bucks but didn't play it much cause most of my friends are on ps3 - now it looks like we'll be having some fun.
Back-to-Back  +   642d ago
If you havent play borderlands do so asap. Grid 2 looks like a nice racer. Interested in also trying dyad.
NeloAnjelo  +   642d ago
Yawn at a good deal? Right ok
Neonridr  +   642d ago
I am guessing nothing new for the PS4. Looks like they are extending Contrast and Resogun as the free games for the month of December.

I really need to get one or two of those PS+ cards. Shame that they won't be offering the $30 sale on the PSN Store. I didn't want to have to physically go out to get them, but hopefully here in Canada they will do a similar promotion.
PLAYER5095  +   642d ago
there was another article that stated that the ps+ will be offered for the same price on amazon
admiralvic  +   642d ago
Amazon is doing the promotion if you can get in on that. Same with BestBuy, Walmart, Toys R Us and of course, GameStop.

no offence, but that was to be expected
PS4 just launched. It would be a bit difficult to already release more new games to give away
All the games are not even 2 months old at this point and the library isnt really big enoug to give away games left and right
Neonridr  +   642d ago
how does it work exactly (new Playstation owner). Let's say in January they release two new games that are free to Playstation Plus members, do the games Contrast and Resogun stay free for PS+ members? Or do they change over each month making new games free and the old ones not free?
admiralvic  +   642d ago
They release games.
You "purchase" them.
As long as you have plus, the PSN believes you bought these games and will work like any game you actually bought. So if they change games, you continue to own the previous games and can buy the new games.
Once your plus expires, you can renew and reobtain all the games you had before or move on with your life.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   642d ago
You buy the free games.
Games don't stay free for ever, however, if you bought them, you can download them whenever you want.
PS plus is needed to then play them.
So here is a hint.
Let's say you HDD is full and you have no room to download any games, but let's say Killzone is on PS+ for a month or so
No problem, just "buy" the game (which is then free) and it will be in your download history. Anytime you want to download the game, you can go to your download history and download and play the game for free.
This is to persuad people to pay for PS+ as fast as possible
A person who has PS+ for a year will have more games than a person who gets it for 1 month.
Another example:
Wipeout 2048, Uncharted 3, Metal Gear Solid HD vita, motorstorm, and more. All these games WERE free on ps+ at a certain time. Not anymore. I dont have metal gear solid HD vita, but I still "bought" it and now at any time (as long as i am ps+ member) i can redownload that game and play it
That's why the Instant game Collection on PS4 wont update in the beginning as much as ps3 and vita because of the smaller library of games
Snookies12  +   642d ago
Yeah, you can just buy them on Amazon on the 29th for $30 and they'll give you the code right off the bat. Don't have to worry about getting a physical card.
yellowgerbil  +   642d ago
NO PS4 GAMES!!!!!! Come on I was hoping for at least something little like the Flower game or something.
Lowsnamebrand  +   642d ago
I have flower... just buy it flat out you won't be disappointed... Plus its a cross buy between ps3,v, and 4
Prime157  +   642d ago
I used the 10$ on flower, definately a unique game that I'm loving.

Also, "I remember hearing them say that NA was considering Resogun and Contrast as december's freebies. Since the PS4 isn't out yet in other continents."
WeAreLegion  +   642d ago
No PS4? What the heck?
Prime157  +   642d ago
I remember hearing them say that NA was considering Resogun and Contrast as december's freebies. Since the PS4 isn't out yet in other continents.
WeAreLegion  +   642d ago
Those are already free though.
MestreRothN4G  +   642d ago
New PSN+ standard?

If you think carefully, you'll realize PSN+ will be awful for PS4 for a long time. Or what? They'll offer BF4? Knack? InFamous SS?

Nope. Only awful titles like Contrast and alikes.

Dislike as much as you want. No games for December is already obviously in this direction.
dboyc310  +   642d ago
Does anyone know when Outlast will come out? Don't forget we also have F2P games too.

Just Starve is going to be free in January, and Drive Club will be in what? February? Those are just two games that I know of that they said will be free. Yeah it sucks there's no even an indie title for PS4 this month, but with all the sales going on, I'll have some more PC games to play when I don't feel like playing the PS4 games I currently have.
Back-to-Back  +   642d ago
So your judging ps plus for ps4 after less than 1 month. You will be eating crow when driveclub launches.
MestreRothN4G  +   642d ago
1. Don't starve is below 80 on metacritic.
2. Driveclub is a freetoplay game.
3. Feb? No one knows when the f2p game is coming out.

Point sustained.

Outlast is the only good (80+) full game for PS+ on the horizon.

dragon82  +   642d ago
Driveclub is not a F2P game. It is a full retail game that will have a physical disc version. PS+ is getting a free "watered down" version of the game.
Snookies12  +   642d ago

1. Who cares what a game scores. It's about personal opinion. Try it for yourself before you act like it's a bad game. I would feel really bad if you just played games based on their review scores, since you'll be missing out on a LOT of really unique and amazing titles.
2. Driveclub is definitely not free to play. It's a full retail game. The PS+ edition just has a little less to it than the retail version.
3. Well, I'm not sure what you mean for your third point...
NeloAnjelo  +   642d ago
Have you played contrast?

Apparently the story is amazing with some poor platforming. It's free and I play for story. Anyways let's see what Sony has in store for plus. So far they have not disappointed.
nope111  +   642d ago
Yay, we also got the sega racing game!

I already own Borderlands 2. good game, but the drop rates for legendary are f**king god-awful.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   642d ago
A man never got to try the second one so he'll certainly be picking that up
Relientk77  +   642d ago
Too many racing games :/
admiralvic  +   642d ago
Better than another fighting game.
lonewolfjedi  +   642d ago
decisions decisions buy ps plus year sub or buy more games with buy 2 get one free sale
ShutUpDonny  +   642d ago
First world problem : Free Borderlands 2 ! (...) but now that I have a PS4 I don't feel like playing PS3 anymore...
NeloAnjelo  +   642d ago
I know what you mean... But the Wolf Among Us and The walking Dead season 2... Unless the latter comes to PS4.

Those 2 and GT6 means my PS3 will be on for a while.

JimmyDM90  +   642d ago
This seems like a mistake on sony's part. They're trying to convince ps4 buyers that ps+ is a worth while must have subscription and yet they get cheap in their second month. The month when most newcomers' free trial month is coming to an end.
MestreRothN4G  +   642d ago
Well thought.

Well though by you, not by them. Their ridiculous cheapness with PS4 PSN+ surely will pay its toll.
Ducky  +   642d ago
I don't see it making much of a difference.
PS+ is needed for online, so a big chunk of people will end up getting it anyways.
MestreRothN4G  +   642d ago
^ or getting xbones.
iceman06  +   642d ago
They don't have to convince too many people of the "value" of PS+ because most will get it just for the online component. That being said, it will take a while for the PS4 to have the ability to do what the PS3 did in terms of offering free games. But, if you own a PS3 or Vita in combination with the PS4 then you get more than your money's worth.
JonnyBigBoss  +   642d ago
My PS4 needs software love for ALL THAT IS GOOD. PLEASE SONY.
MestreRothN4G  +   642d ago
You better get used to waiting. For a looong time.
Hicken  +   641d ago
Holy crap, dude. I don't think it's possible for you to be a bigger troll.

The damn system came out WEEKS ago; it doesn't have the library the PS3 had when Plus launched YEARS down the line, and how could it?

You bitching about the lack of free games when there aren't that many games to make free- and then complaining about the ones that ARE free- is stupid, to put it bluntly.

I'm not sure why this is such a difficult thing for you.
_FantasmA_  +   642d ago
Dude, seriously? The thing just came out less than 2 weeks ago and hasn't even launched in most of the world and already you are feeling entitled? Go buy some games you cheap loser. Its not like there's hundreds of PS4 games to choose from yet.
turgore  +   642d ago
Awesome. I really enjoyed the first borderlands. I'm sure I will enjoy the second one as well.
chrispseuphoria  +   642d ago
I bought Borderlands 2 a few months ago. Darn it! Atleast Sonic Racing Transformer is on there for Vita. I'll enjoy that....
Riderz1337  +   642d ago
Wooow the month my membership ends is one of the best months for PS Plus subscribers...

Borderlands 2 and Grid 2...Mother of god.
GraveLord  +   642d ago
Loved the first Borderlands. Looking forward to #2!
blackblades  +   642d ago
Can't see why people so shocked of no ps4 games, it's obvious there's not a lot of games to give out free. I'm surprise borderland 2 became free since borderland was already free.
Skate-AK  +   642d ago
Nice. Been wanting to play Grid 2.
_FantasmA_  +   642d ago
Damn I was just going to buy the Borderlands 2 GOTY edition tomorrow if I saw it on sale anywhere. I would have ended up wasting my money. I'm on PS4, but Borderlands 2 is the only game from the PS3 that I would still go back and play. Co-op was so much fun in the first one. I love killing stuff and leveling up. Thanks Sony!
kingPoS  +   642d ago
Nice! I never got a chance to play Borderlands 2.

millerj2740  +   642d ago
Borderlands 2 was easily one of the best games last gen. I bought it on psn and then again on steam when I traded in my ps3 towards a ps4. It's also one of the few games I think a season pass is worth paying for, awesome dlc's.
