PlayStation Plus: Trine 2, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, NBA 2K14 Free for Members

By Kristine Steimer: "A rogue, a wizard and a knight are the best of friends (well, they work together at least) in Trine 2: Complete Story. You’ll either play as all three characters, rotating between them as you need their unique abilities, or you can grab a couple friends to take control of the two other heroes. Of course, you might all be too busy drooling at the art to solve any puzzles, but that’s okay" (NBA 2K14, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Trine 2)

We're getting the upgraded version of Pixel Junk Shooter on PS+? That's a game I've been wanting to play for some time ... And Trine 2! I'm going to be busy for the next week or two.

Sadly I already bought and beat the Wii U version of Trine 2. Pixel Junk looks like it will be fun for a little while (much better with a friend), and I will download Trine 2 to give it another playthrough (this time in 3D maybe).

But still not the knockout punch I was hoping for from PS+ for the PS4. I guess getting 2 games (3 if you consider that Pixel Junk is actually 2 games in one) is a bonus at least.

I own trine 2 on the ps4 and it feels almost like a new game in 3D.
Neonridr  +   541d ago
nirwanda - yeah it does look very pretty, so I will give it another go.

Trine 2 and PJSU aren't bad, in fact I don't have complains on the free games available so far for PS4's PS+ membership... It's the discounts that had been lacking the most on PS4. It's understandable they can't really deal in full games for free on PS+ for the first year, but at least ease the access for paying members to said full games would make it way better value instead of feeling like paying for multiplayer access (and had the advantage of not starting to stale sales of games because people are just waiting to get it for free). I think they should go ahead and start slashing 30% off some full tittles, maybe start by launch library, like Knack, Need For Speed and BF4.

@BISHOP - true enough, but NBA 2K14 is free for the PS3, so "technically" no reason why it couldn't be free for the PS4. They did come out at the same time..

NBA2k14 came out over a month apart due to console launches......So maybe next month
Neonridr  +   541d ago
@Rainstorm - Yeah I saw that after making that comment, lol. I'm pretty sure the first AAA title we will see for the PS4 will be a Sony title. My guess is leaning towards Knack or KZ.

Keep in mind that PJ Shooter is also a cross-buy, so you get the Vita version for free and has a platinum trophy.
GribbleGrunger  +   541d ago
I don't know why but I'd assumed the upgraded version of Pixel Junk for the PS4 would be coming later and we'd be just getting a straight up PS3 port.
admiralvic  +   541d ago
Sad to see no discount on 1001 Spikes. I am still on the fence if I want to pay $15 for it and had hopes a + discount would bring it down to <$10.

Happy gaming, fellow Playstation gamers :D

Trine 2 = absolutely amazing!

Excellent art, graphics, gameplay and puzzles.

10/10 here.

Not disagreeing that Trine 2 is great, but I liked the first one more. Maybe because it was new and fresh with amazing art style.
Palitera  +   541d ago
I still have to play it. Another one for the backtrack list...

Wish NBA 2k14 was for PS4 instead
bub16  +   541d ago
would be nice but with the limited amount of games on ps4 do you think sony would give us a retail game right now? also just think of how many people have that game and would be pissed to get it as a ps plus freebie
uth11  +   541d ago
I have the demo version of Trine 2, anyone know if I can convert this to the free version, or will I need to download it again?
bub16  +   541d ago
think you will need to get a fresh download this time round :( no 6kb unlocks
bigpiece  +   541d ago
yay trine 2 and pixel junk shooter.....so ps3 gets nba 2k14 and im stuck with yet more indies for like the 4th month straight....love the ps4 but wtf sony step it up
Chris_GTR1  +   541d ago
i know im getting a ton of disagrees but as a ps3 only owner the games this month suck, i dont like basketball and have 0 interest in playing sly cooper. as far as i go im getting 0 games this month :( this sucks.

they need to fix this ps+ thing , at least give us a choice of options to download from. like when psn got hacked they gave us 5 options and we downloaded the 2 we wanted. that was badass why cant we have that.

"as far as i go im getting 0 games this month :( this sucks. "

While I agree this month is not the best, I do think you might be jumping the gun. I own all three systems and it typically takes me 4 months to get 1 game I don't own and want to play. However, even with a crappy statistic like that, I still break even on Plus come the end of the year.

and then you can sell the physical copies and keep the digital copies :)
admiralvic  +   541d ago
@ JimmyLmao

"and then you can sell the physical copies and keep the digital copies :)"

In theory, but not in practice. A lot of the games I own were digital copies and the few that weren't digital copies, were worth next to nothing in resale value. Like BioShock Infinite (around $4), Arkham City ($1), Borderlands 2 ($1), Metro ($4), etc. I know it all adds up, but to me, a few dollars aren't worth more than the ability to play whenever without having to download / make room on my HDD.

Yeah it would be badass, but how bout' we just be happy that we are even getting free games. Damn if you give out free food every week pretty soon people will start cryin that the food you give them isn't good enough and tell you to start giving out better free food. Be thankful people.
Chris_GTR1  +   540d ago
sony isnt giving out free games on ps3. its a charged service. i have no reason to buy ps+ as a ps3 only owner other than for the ps+ games that come out every month. with that said this and last months games have sucked
MasterofMagnetism  +   541d ago
Nothing for me on PS3 this month but really looking foward to Trine 2 on PS4.
kryteris  +   541d ago
When are these released in June? I thought that it would be today,(2nd of each month) but apparently that doesn't start til July.

First Tuesday of each month. And it isn't until Sony does the update, so more than likely it will be in the afternoon/early evening.
FAT MAN GO BOOM  +   541d ago
Looking forward to these new titles hitting PSN
playboi28  +   540d ago
That's a good add. I just wish that some of these games would be free on PS3 instead of just PS4.
Scatpants  +   540d ago
For some reason Pixeljunk SHooter is coming up as 14.99 for me instead of free.
