PlayStation Plus September Offers: 10 Free Games including Plants vs. Zombies

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by on Sep 05, 2011 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Before we get to what’s coming to PlayStation Plus, we wanted to let you know that starting today, we’re making a slight change to how we communicate PlayStation Plus updates. Instead of posting twice per month on what’s coming to Plus, we’re going to be making one post that gives an overview of all the content that’s hitting Plus in that particular month. So today’s post will cover content coming in September, and the next post will hit in the first Monday of October. Of course, with every week’s Store Update post, you’ll know what’s going on the Store for Plus on that week.

Now to the good stuff! We’ve got some great content this month coming free to Plus subscribers including PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies, the furious shoot-em-up Astro Tripper, and the final game in the SEGA Genesis Collection, Altered Beast. The value of all three of these titles adds up to more than a $24 savings, which doesn’t include the additional minis and PSone Classics you’ll get this month too. This month also marks a special occasion as we’re celebrating the Resident Evil 15th Anniversary with PSone Classics: Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3, all free to PlayStation Plus subscribers starting 9/20, for 2 weeks only. In other PSone Classic news, Jet Moto will also be free starting tomorrow, 9/6.

On the discount side of things, Resident Evil 4 (releasing 9/20 on PSN) and Resident Evil Code Veronica (releasing on 9/27 on PSN) will be 50% off for Plus subscribers as part of the RE 15th Anniversary special. We’ll also offer for 1 week an additional 50% off select LucasArts PSP content on sale for PSN . Check the list below for all the titles in this lineup as well as the other discounts.

There’s tons more including new Full Game Trials, free themes and avatars; all will be coming on the dates noted below for September. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and enjoy!

how much are the resident evil games 15 or 20 each


+ Emerald_Swords on September 5th, 2011 at 11:17 am said:

Wow by far the best catalog of games by FAR!


+ ratwouldbeking on September 5th, 2011 at 11:18 am said:

Hey look, I get some nice PS+ content before my subscription runs out and doesn’t get renewed.


+ octus on September 5th, 2011 at 11:18 am said:

im pretty happy to see capcom actually giving some stuff away for free here, really surprised though. i will take advantage of this.


+ saintaqua on September 5th, 2011 at 11:26 am said:

This is awesome! I can’t wait for the discounts on RE!!!


+ MrBeatdown on September 5th, 2011 at 11:32 am said:

Wow! This blows every other month of Plus right out of the water. I always wanted to get the PS1 Resident Evil games since I only got into the series with RE4. Now I get all three, for free!?

*head explodes*

I’m even tempted by the 50% off RE games. $10 each is pretty good, but I’ve got a huge backlog as it is, and fall isn’t going to help my backlog or my wallet.

And I love the new one-post-per-month format. It’s much better to just get an overview of the whole month, and getting some of it the next day. I’m glad you guys finally made the switch.

Great job this month! Great games and tons of them. I’m really blown away.


+ badnewsliar on September 5th, 2011 at 11:35 am said:

not only is this a bunch of great content, but the force unleashed discounts are just the icing on the cake, along with resident evil 4 and code veronica.

ps: the force unleashed mission packs are for ps3 correct? the way it reads is that it only for psp, which would be a bit of a bummer


+ Stranton76 on September 5th, 2011 at 11:36 am said:

Hell yeah! I love Plants Vs. Zombies. Even more, I love the R.E. games. Thank u so much Playstation! Fan 4 life!


+ Oisterboy on September 5th, 2011 at 11:37 am said:

Oh wow, awesome!


+ Lethal_Visionz on September 5th, 2011 at 11:38 am said:

Great update tomorrow alone!, already own PvZ on 360 but never bothered with ti much an have been wanting to get it on PSN just not for $15 now its free!, also cant go wrong with Altered Beast either. Rest of the months RE content has me in awe, thanks!

Goodbye social life


+ xxnike629xx on September 5th, 2011 at 11:40 am said:

I still don’t see the point of paying the monthly fee.

Yea the discounts and “free” games are great and all, but once your PS+ account expires, the stuff you got using the plus account also “expires” along with it.

I’d rather save my money and buy the games, DLC, etc at full price, and wait the extra week or 2 for the demo or game to get put up on the PS Store.

I already got Resident Evil 1 ~ 3 from the PS Store, and I just got Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition for PS3. I’m gonna get Resident Evil 4 HD at full price later.



+ G-reatgreen-S on September 5th, 2011 at 11:41 am said:

I have a question guy. I newly bout a 3 month subscription of plus and was wondering, does content you purchase go invalid after your subscription is over? IE. I going to for sure by the 2 RE re-releases and wanted to know if they go invalid if my plus ends?

    + Morgan Haro on September 6th, 2011 at 11:40 am said:

    Content that is free as part of PS Plus is invalid if your subscription ends. However, any content that is purchased at discount is yours to keep, even without the subscription.


+ albertoargento on September 5th, 2011 at 11:48 am said:

fuuuuu yeah!!!



+ ZOMBIE-PAPA on September 5th, 2011 at 11:49 am said:

ooooooooooooooh definitly getting PVZ, RE2, RE4 & RE CVX

finally all my most loved zombiegames on 1 console

most awsome Plus month i’ve seen since i joined:D

free games you got from plus probably won’t work after your plus ends but stuff you buy at a discount should work no problem, so if your just after RE4 & CVX i think you are in luck:)


+ Ivan_MF on September 5th, 2011 at 11:57 am said:

Games you get with discount are yours to keep: it`s a bonus discount.
There are a few games that are free as long as you`re a subscriber.
For example: the Play program; I got the games with 20% discount and if my PS+ ends, I`ll still have those games to play.


+ bri0654 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:07 pm said:

Awesome Free stuff but dang it I just Bought RE2… Aw well RE1 and 3 will make up for it. Glad to be a PSN+ member!


+ spectralheaven on September 5th, 2011 at 12:21 pm said:

it’s good to be plus


+ Sneeches on September 5th, 2011 at 12:22 pm said:

damn i already own PVZ, but the rest i dont :) Thanks for all the stuff, damn its good to be a + member


+ kivi95 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:25 pm said:

Damn, Really hope we in europe get atleast half as good as this :C, And does Resident evil 50% cuts!!!


+ D-yer_Mak-erZoSo on September 5th, 2011 at 12:28 pm said:

I was going to get it, but was dreading paying the 20 Bills. NOW it’s 50% off HOLY COW!!! I am glad I held off the the RE classics too!!! Count me in when my Plus subscription expires to get a whole year now!!! Im gonna save 10 Bucks on RE4, saving a total of 5 for one of my Favorite Sega Classics Altered Beast, RE1 Directors cut is 9.99 saved, plus 6 bucks each for the other two REs. So that is 37 Bucks in savings!!!! Plus the themes and other games you get!!! That pretty much pays for the year subscription I am getting. Dang I AM PUMPED!!!


+ kratos1984 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:30 pm said:

wow, the first three resident evil game for free! sweet, i almost bought re2.


+ saab01 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:32 pm said:

It looks like i will finally be able to play the game Plants Vs Zombies. If only we could do one thing and have a vote on what content we would like to see in Plus. This would be an amazing idea that should happen. Also if we could get some better Avatars it would be nice. The themes for Plus have been nice so far.


+ Street_Killaz on September 5th, 2011 at 12:37 pm said:

Holly crap sony u trying to take all my money with all this great content!!! PS PLUS rocks, After my trip going to cancel xbox live i just never play it.!! And BulletStorm, Resident Evil 4,Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD getting those for sure..


+ Seiven on September 5th, 2011 at 12:41 pm said:

WOOHOO, that is some value for PSN Plus


+ the_crochet on September 5th, 2011 at 12:41 pm said:

Grace (or anyone),

Great for the RE anniversary deals… Just 1 question. Are you thinking on making deals on RE5 DLCs like 50% or so ? Now that would be an even greater anniversary sale !!!

    + Morgan Haro on September 6th, 2011 at 11:43 am said:

    I don’t have any info on RE5 sales; if there is anything to announce on this, we’ll let you know through Store Updates or future Plus Updates.


+ tbt924 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:42 pm said:

GREAT Update!

Plants vs. Zombies is the BEST! <3


+ HeLLeVeN11 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:42 pm said:

Awesome!!! 1/2 off of RE’s HD is a great surprise, was about to get ’em both anyway.


+ Wipeoutt31 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:43 pm said:

It pays to be a Plus member.


+ Bolduk on September 5th, 2011 at 12:46 pm said:

Okay, thank you Sony! Now I gotta admit that you came out it force for September! You did not let your subscribers down this month, I hope you keep up! Wow PvZ, RE 2, 3, 4! Omg!

Wow, great month for Plus!


+ Sum-Mischief on September 5th, 2011 at 12:48 pm said:

Super Nice ! … Saints Row 2 , I was looking to pick it up for the PS3 had some trouble finding it though. Even though I have it for the 360 i wanted to do a replay of it and what best way to do that but on the PS3.

good month!


+ Cobra1 on September 5th, 2011 at 12:55 pm said:

I hate to call foul, but it seems like you’re trying to lump everything in one post to make us feel like we’re getting a ton of new content while still giving us the same amount. Nice try though. :(


+ xSpectre-X on September 5th, 2011 at 1:02 pm said:

Great! More good content!


+ CRoachtnt on September 5th, 2011 at 1:02 pm said:

+ thekylekurtz on September 5th, 2011 at 1:10 pm said:

Wow, I am really looking forward to the free RE games, as well as the free PSN games. Plus is really worth the money lately, along with the Revelations Beta for free.


+ chrisishizu on September 5th, 2011 at 1:17 pm said:

The best PS+ month so far.

+ StargamerX on September 5th, 2011 at 1:40 pm said:

Awesome update! I suppose this should have been expected since it’s been 15 months and everyone’s initial subscription is ending. :)


+ Dcrazy204 on September 5th, 2011 at 1:43 pm said:

Why?! Why must I suffer !!!


+ MarkakaJin on September 5th, 2011 at 1:47 pm said:

So, you guys who are planning to not renew are changing your minds now? Because I haven’t changed my mind since I subscribed to PS+. This is the kind of thing I was waiting for. Thank you again, Sony Playstation and the Plus service! I’ll be sure to get those Resident Evil games.

I have a question

Burn Zombie Burn and few others expire September 29th. But my plus membership doesn’t expire until December 8th. So what happens to the games that expire on the 29th. Do i have to download them again or are they gone. Please Answer me.

Finally get to play the original Resident Evil titles can’t wait.

    If you’ve already downloaded these titles in the past; then you’ll be able to redownload them again in the future, even if they’re not part of a specific month’s Plus offer. But of course, you still need to be a Plus subscriber, and again, you need to have downloaded when it was in Plus. Hope that helps!
