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.

Grace,

Please include plus member discounts for comics, video, and the psp games offered in the psn store (remember the PS3 does everything). (Well almost everything) Will we ever be able to view the digital comics purchased in the psn store on our PS3s or through our computers via the media go program? Great news about the DC Universe beta; keep up the good work.

It would have been icing on the cake for a neogeo PSP discount too.

When is the removal date for the PS+ content poublished on 12/21? The usual two weeks so 1/4?

Finally the one time having Plus isn’t a bad choice to own for that DC beta.

Finally the one time having Plus isn’t a bad choice to own for that DC beta. The Neo Geo discounts, while nice, isn’t much of a savings. I guess I’d be saving on not paying for tax basically.

Are the NeoGeo games going to have trophies with them as well?

WOOT DCUO…I have been following this game’s development for what seems like 4 years when it was just a rumor. Can’t wait to try it out

BTW FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO PURCHASED COD BLACK OPS HOW DOES IT FEEL TO GET A FEW EXTRA MAPS FOR 60 BUCKS ? Cause to me it was cod modern warfare plus a few measly maps n ohh a new game mode rotfl

DCUO BETA FTW!!!! HELLS YEAH!

+ InphiniteWun on December 8th, 2010 at 8:36 pm said:

Ok… So if I subscribe to Plus now will I have access to the beta or is it just for those that are already subscribed? You did say “all” and not “all current”….

+ favian on December 8th, 2010 at 9:09 pm said:

To follow up with my previous post #72, if cookies are disabled in internet explorer you will not be able to connect to psn store on media go. i hope this helps everyone.

anyway, i was kind of hoping for bundle packs for these games, like psp/ps3 version bundled for a reduced cost than if you had bought them seperately.. or at least buy one neogeo game and have it work on both psp and ps3 ala ps1 games… I’ll be buying these games, looking forward to a ton of great neo geo games and samurai shodown 4.

This is sweet! I’m excited about DC Universe Online. Last trailer I watched looked promising. Can’t wait thanks guys. Also more get deals for Plus members. Good thing I’m one of them.

+ BiggsRevenge on December 8th, 2010 at 9:14 pm said:

Awesome, so for the DCUO hardcore fans who have preordered the game and have been waiting excruciatingly patiently for the beta to come out, we now find out that it doesn’t actually matter how loyal you are, you only need to spend Fifty bucks on the damn PS+ to get into beta. That just makes me so happy. I hope it comes out super “soon” too.

I love this month for content, although it would have been icing on the cake if we had a discount on Vietnam expansion.

sooo… lemme get this straight?

yur attempting not to offend the atheists by saying “holidays” but in doing so u offend everyone else bu NOT saying “Christmas”

seems kind of redundant, don’t it?

looks sweet! I so need my system fixed.

Is the DCUO beta also coming to PS Plus in Europe?


128

+ Jeigh_Mate on December 9th, 2010 at 1:24 am said:

@ jgrizzle

Great point, genius. ‘Cause everyone but atheists celebrates Christmas. And my friend who celebrates Kwanza, half my other friends who celebrate Hannukah, and the remaining other half– atheists, agnostics and so forth– are irrelevant.

If jamming the word “Christmas” down everyone else’s throat is the point of the Holidays for you, you’re seriously missing the point.

+ UNIT-TRB on December 9th, 2010 at 1:30 am said:

I have DCU on pre-order…8)

Will we see some PS Home swag coming down the pipe related to the title?

8)

I look forward to the other plus offerings as well… might not have any gaming funds left after Zen’s new pinball tables drop though.

If someone could clarify…

At the end of our subscription do we get to keep the trophies we earned from select Playstation + games?

The DCOU Beta isn’t that exciting, I promise. The NDA keeps me from saying more, sadly.

I’m not really sure the term “presents” really applies when its a subscription service we’re talking about here.

LOL, Playstation plus is a joke. your paying 50 dollars for a service that doesnt even have cross game chat. Mr. Tretton, Fire your whole network operations team and get people that actually know what they are doing, or do yourself a huge favor and just licsense xbox live. Live is teh future, you all know it. Ask Kevin Butler.

Why are people crying about the Christmas thing? Did you forget about New Years Day and even Kwanzaa? People celebrate multiple HOLIDAYS during that time period, so stop being so elitist and sensitive. It’s not like they said XMas.

Anyway, do you have to have PS Plus before a certain date to qualify for the DCUO beta? I don’t have it yet, but might get it for that.
