    Infamous 2, Motorstorm Apocalypse, LBP 2 - 10 free games with PSN+

    Sony Europe reveals PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection list
    By Wesley Yin-Poole Published 5 June, 2012
    Announces PlayStation Plus Presents.


    UPDATE: Sony has confirmed that you can play games downloaded under the new PS Plus scheme for as long as you subscribe.
    "That aspect is the same as before - the dates for availability are regarding your initial download of the game - the same as now," Sony's Ross McGrath explained.
    "If you make sure that you go and opt to download a game before it exists Plus, then you can download it and keep playing it for as long as you're a subscriber. Likewise, if you are running short of space, you can delete it from your hard drive and retrieve it from your download list at ANY time - but you have to keep your subscription active."
    UPDATE: Sony Europe has confirmed its version of the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection list announced last night during its E3 press conference.
    From Wednesday 6th June European PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download and play 10 games up front as part of the new PlayStation Plus offering.
    From next month, three of those games will change, and you'll get at least three games per month thereafter. Sony stressed that whenever you join Plus there will be a minimum of 10 games for you to start playing right away. Also, there will be a PlayStation Plus Game of the Month, which will be changed every four weeks. The game of the Month for June is Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.
    The list of six games to start the overhaul off (as each pair of titles is replaced, the next pair will remain for 12 weeks):
    Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
    Chime Super Deluxe.
    Darksiders.
    Renegade Ops.
    Outland.
    Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD.
    In addition, for the next 52 weeks, whenever you join PlayStation Plus, you can download and play the following three games for as long as you subscribe:
    inFamous 2.
    Motorstorm Apocalypse.
    LittleBigPlanet 2.
    That makes for a total of 10 games,
    Meanwhile, Sony announced a European exclusive initiative, called PlayStation Plus Presents, which offers an indie game for free.
    "We'll be searching for the very best independently developed titles for PlayStation 3 right now and in the future - those games that really stand out we'll hand pick for our Plus subscribers," Sony's Ross McGrath said.
    "Each PlayStation Plus Presents game will be available to download in Plus at no extra cost for eight weeks from the moment it launches on the Store, meaning that as well as blockbuster titles, as a Plus subscriber you'll be able to play the very best of indie too."
    The first PlayStation Plus Presents game is arcade shooter Retro/Grade, which launches later this summer.
    All of this is on top of the existing PlayStation Plus offer, which includes discounts and exclusive access. Plus costs £39.99 / €49.99 for a one-year subscription or £11.99 / €14.99 for a 90-day subscription.
    McGrath pre-empted complaints from European subscribers who will have noticed that their US counterparts get 12 games while they get 10.
    "It's true, SCEA get two more games than SCEE subscribers up front," he admitted. "However, most titles in SCEA Plus will stick around for 16 weeks before being refreshed - in SCEE we keep games for a maximum of 12 weeks, which means we rotate through more games in a full year - in fact we are committed to delivering over 45 games to you as part of your subscription before June 2013, and that's before we factor in any extra minis or PS one titles that might show up. Additionally, any PlayStation Plus Presents games will be extra to the standard game rotation."
    The whole point of the Plus overhaul, Sony said, was to offer top tier digital Blu-ray games, or, as McGrath describes then, "the absolute best games available on the PSN Store".
    "I cannot guarantee that you won't be offered a game that has been discounted before but there will be more than enough brand new titles and games that have never been in Plus to provide you an astonishing amount of value, even if you purchased all of those discounted games previously. What we won't do is ever offer something that's been included as a 100 per cent discount title before unless it's a true 'second-chance' offer - that means it doesn't count towards your total."

    This deal isnt online yet (probably as its still tuesday in rest of europe) but it should hopefully be here by tomorrow. Sadly for me, my broadband wont be enough to download all of these games... not even if I temporarily double my broadband.....Ouch. Still its a pretty sweet deal.

    **** I really despise PR bullshit. Trying to put a positive spin on being a PAL gamer when we've been shafted for years. Never mind that he is probably talking about Europe anyway and NZ deals are usually some of the worst in the gaming world. Lucky these are FREE PS+ titles he is talking about, cos the rest of the pricing is hideous.

    How much is your cap? I used to be on a 40gb plan last year when Telecom gave us an additional 20gb for free (Making it 60gb) and then last month they doubled everyones cap so now I am on 120gb for the same price. My workmate was on a 20gb when he got the free 20gb and his doubled only to 80gb.

    My understanding is that it would be available to anyone signed up to psn+ in the period the games are being offered for (since free games are only offered for a limited time) - after all the idea of this deal is to get more people using psn+. So you should be ok to sign up now. It definitely mentions in the piece that if you sign up in the next year, you WILL get I2, Motorstorm and LBP2. Still, you might want to check with nz playstation (or someone else) to make sure.

    If you are not sure about it, there is a $27 3-month psn+ trial deal you can do.

    Thanks for the clarification .

    I already have Motorstorm, jammed Infamous 2, and LBP2 isn't really me. Oh well, PSN+ is still an awesome deal, either way.

    In terms of pricing, I totall agree that we get shafted but its only a 1 off payment of $90 - you would probably pay most of this amount in a month if you have sky. It depends on the value of the service and for me the $7-8 per month is fairly cheap.

    My cap is only 20GB - I switched from Telecom to Vodafone just before Telecom started doubling the broadband size (my vodafone broadband was originally 10 GB so they did double my broadband amount once). Sadly I am stuck on a 2 year plan so cant take advantage of any of the new better deals around. The games are fairly sizeable - a couple are approx 15GB each, a couple are approx 7 GB each (LBP2), so either way Im gonna have to pick and choose which to download.

    I'm not talking about the PS+ pricing, I'm talking about the way NZ gets stuff last, pays highest prices, misses out on other deals. They seem to forget sometimes that the internet tells the world who gets what for how much. You only have to look at the NZ PSN Store compared to other regions to realise that there is a lot of content missing.

    Already have 6 of the games, was going to get Outland as well, but glad i didnt now. Might be able to sell a few of the games i already have to tidy up my collection. (as long as the save games work on the DL version)

    Guess my unlimited Broadband will take a bit of a beating over the next few months.

    This will be a good oppoturnity to get back into MS Apocalypse and get the last 3 trophies i need to get for the Plat.

    I understood what you meant, and agree for the most part. I was just pointing out that the psn deal was still a good one.

    Are we missing a lot of stuff on the psn store? I thought we nearly always get what the rest of Europe is getting, and certainly what Aus gets.

    Virtual Fighter 5: Final Showdown is on the list as well. That for me is an instant pick-up since it's something I'm at least interested in. Others will be a maybe, but ****, this means I don't have enough time to play anything!

    Sometimes the content is never on any PAL region, sometimes is ratings issues. Normally caused by Australian issues specifically. Mostly because it's too costly just to get rated in NZ if they're not going to release it over there because the sales in just NZ won't cover the costs. Sucks a lot. Walking Dead game was the most recent casulty of this exact issue.

    I see. I have never really noticed cos I dont use the psn store much. I have pretty much accepted it as the price to pay as a result of being so small (pop wise) and being so far from other places.

    The prices are never really fair and the specials in the US hardly ever get replicated anywhere else. Some of these even most basic of content, like avatars, gets overlooked on the PAL PSN's, but normally in those cases it's out of Sony's control because it's supposed to the publishers who provide the content to them.

    I'm used to seeing almost every week people complaining on the EU Blog about all sorts of stuff, and it hardly ever gets resolved. And even when it does 90% of the time it is weeks or months later.

    If it wasn't for the DLC compatability issues I'd probably just pay to get the US+.

    If your cap is crap. At least 'purchase' the title. Cancel the DL, and then you can re DL the title when your cap allows. Just keep the PS+ current.

    That's what I'll be doing at least until I sort a new console.

    I'll be honest I farken dark on TWD. That game looks absolutely awesome. The demo I got from the US store is sweet. But TTG didn't bother trying to get the game rated in Oz so we missed out. Then to cap it off saying in the official forums that NZ is likely to be so small a market that we aren't worth investing in put me off going through the hassle of buying US PSN cards to buy it.

    But it's a digital download held in the same servers somewhere off shore. Why should we pay more because we're a small country.

    I personally think its simple price gouging.

    ‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Plus Update – 6th June 2012
    Countries: AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ
    PlayStation Plus has changed!
    By now, you’ve probably seen what’s going on with the US PlayStation Plus update in June and the ‘Instant Game Collection’ and I’m certain you’re all excited to see what we’ve got in Store for you too.
    Well I’ve got a lot to go through with you so brace yourself and please keep your arms and legs inside the blog post at all times.

    So let’s cover all that shall we?
    First of all, you’re still going to get MASSES of discounts on all kinds of stuff in Store, both Plus exclusive and extra discounts on Special offers.
    You’re still going to get exclusive dynamic themes, avatars and access to beta trials – in fact we’ve got some truly fantastic betas coming before the end of the year for you.
    Then, there are the games. From now on, the watchwords are more and better. More new games, more digital Blu-ray, more of the very best the PlayStation®Store can provide.
    You’re getting 10 games up front and from next month, 3 of those games will change, and you’ll get at least 3 games per month thereafter.
    The important thing is that whenever you decide to join PlayStation®Plus, there will be a minimum of 10 games for you to start playing right away.
    So which games? Let’s go take a look. Oh and if you see a number in brackets, it’s a Metacritic score for your reference.

    PlayStation®Plus Presents
    Not content with offering you those 10 titles I also have another small announcement to make – here in SCEE we’ll be running a little sideline within Plus called ‘PlayStation®Plus Presents…’
    We’ll be searching for the very best independently developed titles for PlayStation 3 right now and in the future – those games that really stand out we’ll hand pick for our Plus subscribers. Each ‘PlayStation®Plus Presents’ game will be available to download in Plus at no extra cost for 8 weeks from the moment it launches on the Store, meaning that as well as blockbuster titles, as a Plus subscriber you’ll be able to play the very best of indie too.
    Our first PPP title will be an extremely cool little shooter called Retro/Grade – it won the Audience Award at IndieCade 2010 and was a finalist for Excellence in Audio and Excellence in Design in the 2009 Independent Games Festival. I urge you all to go and check it out because you’ll get to play it soon enough.
    Retro/Grade is just the first such title that will be available at no cost to Plus subscribers when it launches later this summer.
    Now you know what’s yours for the taking, I’m sure you have some questions.
 I’ve tried to answer a few pre-emptively below.
    What about my PS one, PS2 and minis?
    Based on all the feedback we’ve had from you guys over the last couple of years, we’ve decided that our subscribers would be better served by offering you more digital Blu-ray titles and top of the line PSN games, rather than scrabbling around to find a compelling PS one or minis titles. That said, if a truly awe inspiring minis title or one of the greatest PS one or PS2 titles that ever existed suddenly shows up on PS Store, you can bet your britches that we’ll secure it for you.
    How come SCEA subscribers get 12 games and we only get 10?
    It’s true, SCEA get two more games than SCEE subscribers up front.
    However, most titles in SCEA Plus will stick around for 16 weeks before being refreshed – in SCEE we keep games for a maximum of 12 weeks, which means we rotate through more games in a full year – in fact we are committed to delivering over 45 games to you as part of your subscription before June 2013, and that’s before we factor in any extra minis or PS one titles that might show up. Additionally, any ‘PlayStation®Plus Presents’ games will be extra to the standard game rotation.
    Will those 45 games include repeating games that have already been offered in Plus from the past?
    As you’ve already seen, some of the games that are being provided to you may have been discounted in Plus before – we will try to keep this to a minimum. We’ve committed to offering only the absolute best games available on the PSN Store, which means meeting a minimum quality requirement. I cannot guarantee that you won’t be offered a game that has been discounted before but there will be more than enough brand new titles and games that have never been in Plus to provide you an astonishing amount of value, even if you purchased all of those discounted games previously. What we won’t do is ever offer something that’s been included as a 100% discount title before unless it’s a true ‘second-chance’ offer – that means it doesn’t count towards your total.
    —————-
    Guys, while you’re reading this I am almost certainly asleep in a strange bed in California so please bear with me – I will do my best to respond to as many comments as I can while I’m here at E3.
    In the meantime, I want to see feedback, I want to see suggestions for games to be included later in the year, I want to hear anything you have to say about these changes!
    In the meantime, enjoy the anticipation of receiving five top class digital Blu-ray titles, four of the best of the Store’s back catalogue and one brand new PSN game, all still just £39.99/€49.99 for a year’s subscription.

    Just a quick question about data usage.

    I started the download for infamous 2 last night. Said it would be 15 gig.
    When i got up this morning my data usage had chewed through 30 gig.

    Anyone ever had this sort of thing happen when downloading from the playstation store?

    It sends AND receives, so that could be the issue? But still, that's a heck of a lot.

    Just a quick question about data usage.

    I started the download for infamous 2 last night. Said it would be 15 gig.

    Are you sure you didnt have any other games waiting to download? From my experience, the psn store is generally pretty accurate when it comes to stating game sizes. Still, I havent downloaded the Infamous 2 game yet (both becos I have played it before AND I maxed out my broadband) so that might happen.

    You bought PS+ and I bet what happened was the console started downloading updates for all your games, even ones you might not play anymore from years ago. That's what PS+ does, keeps all games up to date.
