The EU Playstation Blog outlines Playstation Plus content for the next two months.
That's some good content.
Think about getting Plus now :D
Yeah, I haven't gotten it yet either but I plan on jumping on it soon! I don't have a ton of PSN games yet and I would like to try more. I hope they keep putting good games on Plus. I'm in the US so we'll see what's coming up!
Sam&Max alone is a 35 dollar value, so this should show those haters that PSN+ is awesome and well worth its value. @Yippie: The US has had alot of great content, so i'm sure we'll see those games :)
Next week for me, I'm totally sold PlayStation Plus FTW!!!
This is great. I remember there were a couple of journalists who were bashing Plus saying it simply wasn't worth it. One complained that "Oh sure, there's Wipeout for free, but there's no guarantee that Sony will add any other free titles." What are the chances that game journalist is writing an article about how wrong he was?
I own all of the Sam and Max series, Zen pinball, and both those PS1 classics. I guess the lesson here is that I don't buy anything on PSN and just get plus? I already spend a crap load of money on PSN, I guess I am still not convinced. I really have a hard time understanding the value behind this, for me at least. For everyone who has none of those games and are subscribed to plus, this is pretty cool. But for me, PSN alone is the best value out there.
I'm thinking about it as well, Medievil this month, then next we get oddworld and Sam and Max.
just wait until they offer something you haven't bought yet. then you could slow down buying items a la carte.
Funny, I was thinking that was kind of blah. I'm glad to see everyone else likes it though. US PlayStation Plus has been better so far.
If the US get Sam and Max and ZEN Pinball, I'll be happy. Don't have either. Everything else is ok (minus OddWorld, AWESOME!), but those two jumped out at me.
I think we (US) have gotten way more contents due to the weekly updates rather than the once a month update. Sev, do you know what we might be getting for Plus this week?
I'm with you, Sev. I still don't have a reason to subscribe. I figured it would change in Sept. but nothing enticing for me. Maybe I shouldn't have bought so much stuff off of the PSN. :P
So far plus has been good. I'm excited about the September content BUT I'm really expecting some E3 demos sooner than later :) That what I'm really looking forward to right now.
@ The Hater Well US got more items in quantity and has Qore for free, but in order of quality... You're missing for example KZ2 Steel&Titanium DLC that EU got in its first month and LBP as a give away free game to download if you became a member before I think today. USA just got a lot of free themes, avatars and much rebate stuff which I would like to see, especially the rebate items on EU PSN+ But I prefer stuff like KZ2 DLC above free avatars/themes, like the MS2 Adrealine pack for August again. "We’ve listened to your feedback on here so, rest assured, this is not all that will be available each month; look out for some more exclusive, surprise treats coming to Plus in August and September." This sentence made me most happy, it seems PS+ EU is also stepping up its game and giving away stuff more frequently (weekly?) instead of just once a month. They have listened to the feedback about comparing USA PS+ and EU PS+, so I'm curious to see whats happening in the coming months.
Has mart jumped to the dark side or is he just hunting for bubbles? Throw me a bone here someone.... I might be interested in getting into psn+. I just want to have some amazing feature that justifies the purchase even further. Cloud game saves might just do the trick here. Anyway I've already bought most of the stuff where there has been discounts or they've given free so there has been no point whatsoever to join psn+ up till now. edit: Exactly Pennywise.
@Sev I'm with you. I didnt really see much if anything i cared for on that list. maybe im jaded and out of touch as a gamer these days or maybe companies continually put out crap and people are conditioned to like it, meh, who knows. Now if there were some re-releases of the megaman-x series, or NBA jam, blitz, or even some puzzle games like puzzle quest, I'd probably be more excited. Everything released/discounted seems like some obscure, generic, dollar-store brand game that only a few care about. I know im just an effin ray of sunshine aren't I ^_^
not good if, like me, you already own abe oddysee and medieval on disc I also rather play my PS1 games with the epsxe emulator because you can raise the native resolution to like 1280*1024(the PS3 only upscales PS1 games, it does not rais the NATIVE resolution) epsxe also does -remove the "black border problem" of PS1 games -enables Z-buffering(this prevents many visual glitches) -save states the only downside is that it needs alot of configuring to make the emulator work decently if you guys are interested I will put the properly configured epsxe on my server, just ask
I just bought abe's oddysee last week, that's a bummer... I'll be getting metal gear though.
I hope we get some BETAs soon though.. :P KZ3 anyone??
not gonna happen (not too soon anyway), only few people have thier hands on that just now. dont forget sony has a very large and dedicated team of beta testers.
If I lived in Europe, I would have bought PS+ on day one. This stuff is way better than what the US has.
OMFG! The ENTIRE Sam & Max season for free to PSN+ Members, Holy Sh%$! This is amazing, so glad im a PSN+ member. I'm sure the US will have alot of great content too :) Edit: And thats not all! Wow, Sony listens to EU, thats for sure.
i like it. thanks! I need to know what this "clock" and "fish tank" dynamic themes look like. :S can't find videos of them. unless they are brand new? "look out for some more exclusive, surprise treats coming to Plus in August and September." cool beans, i love surprises
They are new, same with the other dynamic themes, exclusive to PSN+ members :)
nicccce. great month to be PS+ member. (im already a happy member :P )
OMG Abe's Oddysee! oh Abe, how many hours of my childhood did you waste?
I know. I'm such a classic oddworld fanboy
can't wait to play it again!
wow... that great content for EU.
Some good stuff. But I want MOAR! :D
cool i really like the stuff for september.
wow so glad i signed up sam and max the whole series was not expecting top games like sam and max after getting wipeout HD.
LMAO. You felt for that Sony "trap". I'll get it when KZ3 early access get announced.
^ yea or FF early on line access. the content is good, but not for me yet
Is it just me or at this rate won't they be out of games very fast? I did the math and the PS1 and PSN games are going to get burned though quickly same with older DLC content like KZ2, R2 and so on. Be nice to get a discount on like the BFBC2 DLC or even Uncharted 2, something a little more meaningful and relevant to the current times. Not that I am complaining, but not many play some of those games anymore, R2 and Warhawk died some time ago and not many play KZ2 online ether. Just food for thought.
What are you talking about?? KZ2 is packed with people.
What??? There are loads of people on warhawk and killzone 2. I never have problems find fellow comrades
good content coming to PS+
shit...I will never buy anything from psn. I just bought sam and max before psn plus was. I´m now thinking should i buy scott pilgrim vs the world which i have waited for a month now, then im pissed if it comes for free in the future.
That is going to be a problem for any content driven service. Now that they let you know in advanced it should not be too much of a problem. I think after a few months we will start to see what kind of content we can expect. Side note, you think they will now and then re-discount past PS+ items in later months, I see that being a way they can get around the running out of content problem. I don't see how PS+ can keep going like this for 3+ years unless they now and then double up on some of the offerings now and then.
its not like everyone has ps plus, itll only make a dif. to ppl who READ the website AND has Ps plus.
Im not getting it till cross game chat comes. I got enough games to last me now until next gen. I dont even have time for all those games. I dont get ps+
Wait, what? People now complain that there are too many games? I think I've heard it all now.
Man this is wack. LOL Plus isnt worth a damn. I dont care about playing a game I already own for a hour and then it shuts down. This is so lame
Why would you use the full game trial if you already own the game?? Thats retarded.
I got it for 3 months and i'm not sure i'm going renew it. I'm sure it will get better in time but as for now i'm going have to pass.
Well you'll still have access to these offers if you have the service for three months, it's Decembers update that you won't get unless you renew.
A pretty decent update, after my complaints regarding the difference between the US and EU offerings I'm pretty happy that the next couple of months will be pretty big for us EU customers.
A quick question, If i buy ps3+ just now will i be able to access the free games from previous months?
they are gone after that period
Cool, but I can't wait until they start rolling out all the extra additional features exclusive to members like Betas and other functions like the auto downloads.
Well it's seems that you have to be patient... I bought wipeoutHD and Sam and Max before PSN+... I subscribe to PSN+ and now, 50$ worth of free content I already have... Am I the only one in this situation ?
needs to post our content. why not? it seems lazy.
Ico & Shadow of the Colossus costumes for LBP. HD reboot confirmed.
TGS is in September, which is when those costumes will be released. Either we get to see The Last Guardian, or they're releasing a HD Colelction - both of which I'd be very happy with!
I either own or dont wish to play those games and the content is blah. I guess Ill have to wait a couple of more months to see is Plus can actually entice me to get it. So far, for me, Plus is very underwhelming.
lol, this is making me hot :p Abe's Oddysee?? Metal Gear half off??? WARHAWK free full game trial AND 50% off?!?!? holy shi- *dies happily.
I'm going to download Abe's Oddysee just for the farting noise
Sam and Max is going to be downloaded straight away in september :) problem is i have most of the content for this month but the promise of having some weekly updates for plus is very promising :)
I remember when Kane and Lynch 2 demo was free on PC. You had to pay on PSN if you wanted to play it. At least you didnt have to, you could just wait 2 weeks. Then you would get away without getting a subscription.
Actually in Europe you only had to wait 1 week not 2
I would be pissed if this is the crap they offered to the US buyers. Sony cant take their virtual coupon book and shove it up their ass.
Damn you Sony for giving me the option to save money if I do so desire!
How are u saving money when their is a $50 fee to join. U=brainwashed.
of course you are saving money if you would have gotten it from the normal psn store. i mean i allready got stuff in over the value of 50 dollars, counting lbp, wipeout and some smaller stuff, its not brainwashing its just beeing smart.
question - say i was to join PS+ this month..........is everything that was free LAST month still available to me for free? or is anything that is free ONLY free for the month that its released?
its only free for the month that it is offered in, but iirc, you still have this week to purchase July's content
thanks for the reply. bubbles to you.
