Hi everyone,

‘Tis the season to give… so our team is prepping a special gift for all PlayStation Plus subscribers. We already revealed our biggest PlayStation Plus publishes yet, including free downloads of games like Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse and Crash Team Racing. Along with those featured games, we also have some other surprises that will keep PlayStation Plus subscribers busy over the holiday break.

Coming soon to all PlayStation Plus subscribers is a free download of the beta for Sony Online Entertainment’s newest MMORPG, DC Universe Online, from the PlayStation Plus section in the PlayStation Store. From there, they can create their own super hero (or super villain) and take an adventure through Jim Lee’s vision of the DC universe. We will have more information on the exact timing of the beta in the near future, so be sure to keep your eyes on the blog.

Our holiday cheer isn’t stopping there! On December 21, we have another special PlayStation Plus publish.

I had already bought Sam & Max, so it wasn’t really “free” for me. That said I look forward to the DC Universe Online beta.

It’s okay to say “Christmas” too, most American’s son’t like being politically correct. That’s one thing, I don’t think I have ever seen the word Christmas on this blog, on PSN, or in PlayStation Home, even your personal Christmas Tree is called a “Festive Tree”! lol, just had to blow off some steam.

But yeah, these are some pretty legit offers, if more system features get added to PS+, i will consider getting the service!

I’m a little interested in the DC beta. Other than that there wasn’t too much excitement for me. Still not bad though.

I’m asking again, since no one will reply…

PlayStation Plus members were promised the Hustle Kings avatar bundle for free, but it doesn’t show up that way in the store.

Please let us know why plans changed since last week with no explanation or warning. I’m sure we’d all appreciate it.

Great news on the new Beta test!

I’ve been going back and forth in my head whether or not to get DCUniverse. So glad I’ll be able to try before I buy!

So now I get into the DCUO Beta for my pre-order and for being in PSN Plus…Good times. I’m glad that I signed up

+ theMADster on December 8th, 2010 at 5:17 pm said:

Man, I love this. First Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood multiplayer beta, then the Killzone 3 multiplayer beta, today the LBP2 beta, and now you announce I’m getting the DC Universe beta. Plus is totally a win in my book! Thank you so much!


31

+ TomHoang on December 8th, 2010 at 5:17 pm said:

I love you Sony and PS+!

Also excited for the DCUO beta. Although I’m still not interested in it as long as it has a monthly fee.


32

+ FATHASUN on December 8th, 2010 at 5:18 pm said:

PS+ has only gotten better. I have taken full advantage since day one.

One day I am going to add it all up. Unless some has already done so.


33

+ Rockstarmd on December 8th, 2010 at 5:19 pm said:

Is that where those of us who are not Playstation Plus members but preordered the game and are awaiting our code
awhile back will go for the beta as well?


34

+ djsaiyan on December 8th, 2010 at 5:19 pm said:

How about waiving the subscription fee for DCU Online for PS+ members.

I already play two MMOs, not sure I can swing a third.

+ Strathmore on December 8th, 2010 at 5:20 pm said:

Dear PlayStation…

As a PlayStation Plus member I have already previously purchased each of the Sam and Max episodes, as well as 90% of the content you have made freely available to Plus members…

Where can I get my refund or credit for previously purchased games? What’s that, there is no such policy…? I see…

Well, surely you have SOMETHING to offer hardcore gamers like me that previously supported your games by purchasing them full price? What’s that… you don’t?

Ah… I see…

So, to recap: You’re offering games I already own, and you’re not thanking me or rewarding my loyalty for purchasing them at full price in any way, shape, or form…?

Exactly when will I start to see the worth of being a PlayStation Plus member?

And please, humour me if you can… exactly WHY do you think I will EVER sign up again for Plus “service”?


36

+ DazeOfWar on December 8th, 2010 at 5:20 pm said:

Ok now you got me really excited about being a Plus member. The DCUO Beta is awesome. This is what I was hoping to try out to see if I really wanted to get into a MMO.

Sam & Max I already have and the minis I still don’t care about. Those don’t matter now that I get the Beta.

Thanks Sony. You now have a proud Plus member again.


37

+ DonCalzone21 on December 8th, 2010 at 5:20 pm said:

Now everyone will get a chance to try what is my favorite PS3 game ever, BORDERLANDS. ALOT of people slept on this game. I recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have it already. Other than that I’ll be getting BATTLEFIELD 1943 and am looking forward to DCU:O. Although Im more of a MARVEL guy.

I have been wanting to get into the DCUO for so long! thank you thank you thank you…..oh and also an added bonus is the reduced price of some of my favourite NEOGEO titles “fatal fury” and “king of the fighters ’94”

a side note…it didn’t get answered, but is the Sam & Max game for Canadians as well..it wasn’t clear on the last psn+ post

+ remanutd5 on December 8th, 2010 at 5:24 pm said:

47

+ Kchow23 on December 8th, 2010 at 5:30 pm said:

Make free trials at least 1 hour longer, and give us the option to decide what we want to be automatically downloaded not just “select content”. Also why not display the PS + logo on the blog for the users that do have it?


48

+ Christian399 on December 8th, 2010 at 5:31 pm said:

Nice content!

Is there any chance that you’ll be offering DCUO as a full game download when it releases? I would love that for my MMOs (think FFXIV intimated that they might be doing something similar).


49

+ FATHASUN on December 8th, 2010 at 5:31 pm said:

@44 DonCalzone21…

Anyone complaining at this point is just hating. It will only get better.

Will the NEOGEO games work on the PSP as well or just the PS3?
