Coming to PlayStation Plus: Our Biggest Publish Yet!

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Dec 01, 2010 // Director, PlayStation Store

PlayStation Plus

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to let you know that we’ll offer our biggest PlayStation Plus publish to date coming up in December just in time for the Holidays! We will be giving more than $50 of content over the next two weeks, essentially paying for a full year’s subscription to PlayStation Plus, making December a great month to sign up.

Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse 2 Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves

Kicking things off on December 7 is the LittleBigPlanet spin-off PSN title, Sackboy Prehistoric Moves. Enjoy 10 unique Move-enabled levels on a multiplayer adventure filled romp through the land of dinosaurs. Best of all, PlayStation Plus subscribers get Sackboy Prehistoric Moves free AND a week before everyone else.

Earlier this year, European PlayStation Plus subscribers were given a full season download of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, regularly priced at $34.99. We heard the feedback that US subscribers would like the same content and are happy to report that all five episodes will be available to US PlayStation Plus subscribers on December 14 as well.

Along with Sam & Max, we are discounting Marvel Super Hero Squad PSP for those PlayStation Plus subcribers that have a PSP. Gamers can take Blue Tongue’s humorous outlook on the Marvel universe for a spin. Marvel Super Hero Squad PSP will be available for 50% off starting December 14. These three games barely scratch the surface of the upcoming PlayStation Plus content publish, so be sure to check the full release list down below.

As always, here’s a friendly reminder to pick up the content that will be removed from PlayStation Plus, including free downloads of Shatter, DYNOGEMS, Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus, and a discount on Landit Bandit, Hustle Kings, Crash Bandicoot 2, and MAG DLC.

Finally, if you haven’t signed up yet, check out our offer giving new subscribers of a full year of PlayStation Plus an additional three months for free.

I just have to say, I am EXTREMELY disappointed in Sony on letting this go through.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/movies/2010/12/drakes-fortune-mark-wahlberg-nate-drake-movie-david-russell.html

That is NOT the Uncharted movie I wanted to see! Nathan Fillion needs to be in it, and this director needs to be scrapped.

Didn’t we get Fieldrunners in June? I can’t remember and is this the same Burn Zombie Burn item from 10/6 that we never got or another item for Home? Thx!

Score on a couple of levels.

Sam & Max is gonna be great, even better with the price. I thought we got FieldRunners already? I didn’t think I bought that on my own but I guess I did, coulda swore it was a previous PS+ game tho :O

+ BlooodyCow on December 1st, 2010 at 2:08 pm said:

Now this….this is what we been waiting for. This look to be a great update.

+ ExPresident on December 1st, 2010 at 2:08 pm said:

@ SpyDudeFX

You beat me to it. I’m pretty fricken sure Field Runners was already a PS+ game. Someone else agree? If so you better fix it Sony.

Fieldrunners? We got that like in the first month. Other than that thanks alot! lol

why fieldrunners again?

running out of minis or something?

+ PSWii2008 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:10 pm said:

Man! I could’ve waited a few months to get Sam & Max for free (with Plus purchase)! But then, I wouldn’t have had anything to play this past summer! And Crash Racing! One of my favorite PS1 games!

I don’t know how I feel about the LBP Move thing. I hope it’s good!

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:11 pm said:

@TheMissingLink

Player one requires Move, the other players don’t.

+ Cabooose967 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:12 pm said:

Who do I have to e-mail about this? The past 3 games that have gone free, I already own. Now Sam and Max is free and guess what, I already own that. This is getting out of hand. Please Sony allow for users to pick their free games.

@Grace: This latest batch of content (SPM, S&M:TDP, MSHS PSP) seems more geared towards kids than adults. Please don’t forget that many adults are PS Plus subscribers too & not all of us care for this juvenile-oriented content.


15

+ JAMKOR on December 1st, 2010 at 2:13 pm said:

please allow for “1-hour preview games” (like infamous and red faction) to not be displayed in our trophy lists until we purchase the game.

+ DarthMoose1986 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:15 pm said:

Wow, such a great update, so glad I held off on the sam and max, really looking forward to this! Thanks ps plus team! Please though, my only complaint is the lack of Exclsuive avatars, we hardly got any since plus started, please bring us more, thanks.

+ remanutd5 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:15 pm said:

wow good to see the PSP getting some love , i will buy Marvel Super Hero Squad for sure and maybe flow as well , Sackboy prehistoric moves niceeeee!!!!

Kudos to the US Plus Team for stepping it up with dynamic themes for the past few months. Are we also getting the PS Plus Home club that EU just got?

i h8 ps+ cuz i want it, but the stuff it is good for, FOR ME, only comes every once in a while. Like now.

+ Gogo_ZvC on December 1st, 2010 at 2:19 pm said:

@ Everyone who is complaining about Fieldrunners. Stop. Facepalm yourself. Think about it. Not every single person signed up for PlayStation Plus when it started the first month.

Why shouldn’t they be given the opportunity for that game? Use your brains people, they work.

+ awsome_robot on December 1st, 2010 at 2:20 pm said:

i’ll give max and sam a try… though i was/am still hoping for the free ($50 worth) dlc for fallout 3 that the uk plus subscribers got a couple of months ago.


24

+ Floppay on December 1st, 2010 at 2:22 pm said:

Awesome update!


25

+ Gogo_ZvC on December 1st, 2010 at 2:23 pm said:

Free Playstation Move game… Boxing Day… Curses, so many incentives to buy Move now!


26

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:23 pm said:

@ Gogo_ZvC not sure I agree with that logic, because people also missed out on tons of content from earlier months. Should they just start repeating content to accommodate recent subscribers?


27

+ AgentKyle007 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:24 pm said:

Arrrrrggghhh, if only we could have this stuff (at least the free stuff) automatically download the way patches do.


28

+ Jay_Dogg_76 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:25 pm said:

Sam and Max totally free?! Awesome guys, just awesome! (In B4 someone reminds me I paid $50 for + privileges! Screw the haters, it’s worth the $!)


29

+ Gogo_ZvC on December 1st, 2010 at 2:27 pm said:

@Spydude

Yeah man I understand it sucks, but I’m pretty sure they won’t start repeating PSN Games or PSOne Classics anytime during the first year, maybe once or twice the second, but it’s bound to happen.

Minis and other various themes are probably going to be re-used more frequently.

Of course that could just be one huge typo for the minis this December :P


30

+ allstarslayer on December 1st, 2010 at 2:29 pm said:

Please no repeat content! :/


31

+ Thwip on December 1st, 2010 at 2:29 pm said:

I have been pleased with my PlayStation Plus subscription since I joined. This type of content/commitment simply reaffirms my support as a wise decision…thanx!


32

+ judalation on December 1st, 2010 at 2:31 pm said:

Look If you have not realized it PLAYSTATION PLUS is a GREAT DEAL… IF you like games than do your self a favor and get PLUS already! I have saved at least 50 bucks and I am in more betas than I care to count.


33

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:32 pm said:

@Gogo I don’t think they will repeat content, there is enough to go around because new games today are prime for Plus next year. You pointed out giving later subs access to previous content and that logic simply doesn’t hold, sorry bro lol


34

+ ExPresident on December 1st, 2010 at 2:32 pm said:

@21

I don’t agree with that logic. They could offer six months worth of content then offer it again incase people “missed it” the first time. Thats not my problem. Don’t offer me the same thing I’ve already been offered and received. If they want to cater to people who missed it, fine, then offer it and another mini for those of us who already got it.

Out of Mini’s? Then declare you are out of mini’s and offer me a dynamic theme in its place, just tell us thats what your doing. There are a lot of ways to fix issues.


35

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:33 pm said:

I never said it sucked, I was just asking if that is what you thought should happen. tbh I don’t even access PSOne or minis right now.


36

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:35 pm said:

@ExPresident yea it wouldn’t make sense. I could see them doing bonuses for really popular games like Wipeout for people that missed it in addition to the normal content.


37

+ Johnmark on December 1st, 2010 at 2:35 pm said:

i already got feildrunners in june i believe. give us a different one not the same one twice


38

+ CurmudgeonGamer on December 1st, 2010 at 2:36 pm said:

I have a colleague on a forum who just renewed his PlayStation Plus subscription after letting it lapse previously. The free games he downloaded during his subscription period did not renew. He checked with support and this is apparently the policy.

Grace, or someone at Sony, can you please clarify. The unofficial PS+ FAQ post here on the blog says games renew when the subscription renews, but evidence appears to be to the contrary.

Please tell us what’s going on. Thanks.


39

+ Gogo_ZvC on December 1st, 2010 at 2:36 pm said:

@ Spydude

So by your logic, people who sign up now will never ever never ever never get Shatter or Wipeout HD on PSN for free? You are mistaken my friend, it’s going to happen. When? I don’t know xD, my guess is within two years.


40

+ ForgiveMyAim on December 1st, 2010 at 2:40 pm said:

Why stop at Automatic downloads?
Where are the cool features


41

+ KongWen on December 1st, 2010 at 2:41 pm said:

How about Coconut Dodge instead of a game we already got? Not to sound ungrateful, since the rest of this update is massively awesome. Happy holidays, Sony!


42

+ OnesOwnGrief on December 1st, 2010 at 2:41 pm said:

Wait, Fieldrunners? Didn’t I already get this from Plus? I got his free back in August. Why are we getting this again? Don’t go recycling PS+ offers.


43

+ Gogo_ZvC on December 1st, 2010 at 2:44 pm said:

@ExPresident

ahh I like your logic, looking for the solution. We’ll see man, hopefully something like that occurs. I don’t mind it honestly, it’s not like I feed 24hrs off of minis, they are just for the crapper xD

Besides they are still testing out this service, probably going to have huge changes for it come end of year one.


44

+ DonCalzone21 on December 1st, 2010 at 2:44 pm said:

What about BOOM BLOCKS? We were supposed to get that last week in NA. But EU only got it instead.


45

+ Useless_Person on December 1st, 2010 at 2:44 pm said:

Awesome update you guys! Looking forward to seeing how Sackboy Prehistoric Moves turns out.


46

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:45 pm said:

@ Gogo_ZvC PSN has weekly games, I don’t see the content drying up. Besides your justification is offering games to people that missed out, not about content shortages and I doubt that is part of the strategy. You moved your goal from one to now two years lol


47

+ SpyDudeFX on December 1st, 2010 at 2:51 pm said:

We need edit, but if anyone wants Wipeout or Shatter or Critter Crunch that bad, it’s available for sale. So it’s not like the content is gone forever.


48

+ Gogo_ZvC on December 1st, 2010 at 2:52 pm said:

@ Spy

I said two years in my first post… And I wasn’t talking about content drying up either?? My argument was that people will get the games they missed out in earlier months with Plus if they signed up late. I just don’t know when, but I guessed within two years we will start seeing repeats to accommodate the late subs. Of course this would mean the service would stay the exact same it is now.


49

+ Golwar on December 1st, 2010 at 2:52 pm said:

OMG and in Europe we get fantastic games as Cuboid or Astrotipper next month!
Thank you so much Sony for treating your european customers like [self-censored]. There is no better time than christmas, to show whom you love … or not.

+ OnesOwnGrief on December 1st, 2010 at 2:52 pm said:

People who missed out should be left that way. They pushed PS+ for months with a 3 month added bonus incentive. If they didn’t grab it during that period then they should do without. Thats like using a DLC code past the expiration date and it still works. I know, terrible analogy but that is how it is.

If they didn’t feel that PS+ was worth getting during that period then they shouldn’t be entitled to those offers during those months. Its as simple as that. They would still gain the benefits of the new offers posted and the people who did cough up the money for PS+ previously wouldn’t have to deal with the recycling of content. We’re not even 6 months into the service and seeing recycled content. That itself looks like a bad sign.
