PlayStation Plus Update – Launch Week Discounts and More

Morgan Haro's Avatar + Posted by Morgan Haro on Jul 16, 2012 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

Earlier this month, we delivered a big update to your PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection with the addition of great games like Gotham City Impostors, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, and Renegade Ops. These three games continue to be free for Plus members, in addition to nine more free AAA games, like LittleBigPlanet 2, inFAMOUS 2, and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One. That’s not all for this month, though! To round out July (and even getting a bit into August), we’ve got even more goodness for Plus members!

July 17th PlayStation Plus Update

Dyad – 20% Off: Dyad is an abstract game that is influenced by many genres, including racing games, fighting games, puzzle games and classic arcade shooters. Each of the game’s 27 different levels utilizes a variety of mechanics and present unique challenges: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds, and more. Releasing as part of the 7/17 PlayStation Store Update, we’re proud to present this highly-anticipated game to all Plus members at a 20% discount on day one! Want more info? Check out all the coverage from the PlayStation Blog on this title, or hop into the PlayStation Forums thread to discuss it with the community.

7-16 PlayStation Plus Update

The Games (PlayStation Store Promotion): Start Your Training. Once again four years have gone by in a flash, and the world is getting together to compete in The Games. To celebrate, snag two bonus sporty PS one Classics free: International Track & Field and Hot Shots Golf 2. International Track and Field is a 3D update to the classic Track & Field series and offers fun competition in over 11 different Olympic Events. Hot Shots Golf 2’s gameplay still shines as well, with easy to pick up and play golf action. If you own a PSP and have a Plus subscription through your PS3, you’ll be able to activate these free Plus downloads on your PSP, as well as your PS3. In addition, the sale will feature 50% discounts on select titles for Plus members too.

July 24th & 31st PlayStation Plus Update

PSN PLAY – 20% off: This legendary PlayStation Store event returns with a killer lineup of new releases and special incentives. PlayStation Plus members get the edge though as each of these highly anticipated new releases will have a 20% discount for all members during the first week! By participating in this event, you’ll not only get discounts on each week of a game’s release (including the pre-order week), but the more you buy, the more actual dollars will end up back in your wallet! So watch out for the pre-order of Expendables 2, starting 7/24 and game release on 7/31.

Sound Shapes, Papo & Yo, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive are also in the wings to rock your PSN world in PSN PLAY, which continues into August. Want more info? Read more about the PSN PLAY event right here or discuss it in the PlayStation Community forums.

Malicious – 20% off: In Malicious, you’ll take control of a “Spirit Vessel” awakened by prophets to defeat Holders, evil giants bent on destroying The Kingdom. You’re armed with the Mantle of Cinders, a magical artifact that takes the form of weapons or a shield. This awesome new PSN title sports a 20% discount in its debut week on the PlayStation Store on 7/24!

That’s it for now, but keep your feedback coming in by posting your thoughts on this update in the comments section. We got some great feedback from the questions posed in the update earlier this month, so thank you for making your voice heard. What games will you be picking up this month?

Since the release of Vita I have read a lot of comments where people have expressed their dissapontment at the lack of Vita titles. I have been patient thinking hoping soon Vita owners like myself would get a steady stream of releases. I have to be honest my patience has run out, where are the Vita games I’m get sick of the dribbles here and there. Also come on already with remote play, that was a huge reason I purchased the Vita. Why advertise something that wasn’t going to be available when the system was released. Get it together Sony, at this point my Vita has become a high priced paper weight. At least release Jet Set Radio Hd, at this point I’m excited for smart glass on the Xbox so I can at least have remote play on a gaming system. U guys can only blow smoke up our butts for so long before people get fed up.

Got to say that I LOVE PS PLUS even more now than i did before. What i dont get is all the complaints, especially with the NEW game rollout…it is working just as promised at E3..2 games rotating in and out EACH MONTH!!! Why do people not get that, and why complain about not getting an update every 2 weeks? that was never promised. Plus was a value before, now its a friggin steal. By the way, i havent even finished the games from the post E3 update to even be worrying about more free gamess just yet. With playstation plus we are getting more than you could EVER think of getting from the ahem** other system….be happy with all the free goodness we have already received, and the fact that you own the greatest system ever make!!! LONG LIVE PLAY

Its funny, i see people commenting saying that they aren’t happy with how fast an update comes for something they want, or how vita isn’t up to date and etc. Look people, you aren’t programmers, you aren’t developers, so stop complaining. Sure we all wish things would happen faster, but its not like a 5 minute job maybe once you learn how hard programming is you’ll get it. Me personally i know very little on the subject only what ive read. So please stop b*tching and be patient.

This update is trash. We are half way through the month of July and I have yet to see any free PS3 retail games added to Plus. All we gotten this month is 3 PSN games and a couple of discounts. Very weak!

@Morgan Thanks for the update! As you may remember, I was a little bit on the fence about the changes to PS+, but I was very willing to wait and see and judge it objectively. If it is consistently similar to this month, then I am very satisfied. A few good games at the beginning of the month, including sometimes a AAA game, and later in the month we get good discounts and the occasional free PS1 classic and maybe even some minis. That is truly and objectively an upgrade over the old PS+. Thank you for your work.

I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to remind everyone that the PSP can play ps1 classics but the Vita can’t though…

    yeah, but there are gamers out there who really want PSP content for Plus too, so I figured I could make that clear. As for highlighting that PS one Classics aren’t available on PS Vita yet, I don’t think anyone needs a reminder that they’re not there, you guys already know ;) i’m waiting for them too, but everything is coming in due time for sure

Hey Morgan, it would be great if you could get the PS Store team to rethink the Free Games section of the PS+ part of the store since there are a few redundancies and certain things are hidden more deeply than usual.

You guys already list the 12 main games being offered up front when you enter the PS+ section of the store, so the Free Games area listing them again with the same 3 month and 1 year sub options is a bit redundant since people have already passed those same games just to get to that point. It seems like you could take the “Other Freebies” section, which includes the free Minis, Themes, and Avatars, and move that up to the front page of the PS+ section in place of the “Free Games” spot.

I know the team seems to regularly rework various parts of the PS+ section every few months, but this seems like an oversight with the current design that would work perfectly if the redundancy is addressed.

    well we really wanted to make sure people found those free games as soon as they came into the Plus section; but we’ll be playing around with several ways to organize content to see what works best for Plus members. And it’s usually based off of looking at the numbers to see how many Plus members downloaded what pieces of free content based on how they’re merchandised in the Store.

    so thanks for your feedback, i can certainly pass it along

@Morgan “Actually, in the last Plus update, I mentioned that there weren’t any additional free games coming in July; but we were able to secure two bonus freebies as well as Day 1 discounts on anticipated new releases”

Excuse me?!!! what two bonus freebies? I hope you’re not referring to those 2 ps1 games… on second thought, I hope you are; for this would mean that we will be getting 3 ps1 games, considering we haven’t received originally promised content.

To eliminate much of the confusion, you guys need to CLEARLY not only define, but DISTINGUISH said plus content (Not just as a response to this comment but as its own separate blog post).

To my knowledge (based off what’s been OFFICIALLY said), we’re supposed to get the original plus content [1 psn game, 1 psOne game, 2 mini's, dlc, themes, avatars, discounts and early beta access] plus the newly added “igc” content [ 3 psn games (ps3, "psn", ...)]

    + Morgan Haro on July 16th, 2012 at 11:30 am said:

    yep, 2 free ps one classics is what I was referring to.

    But I agree that it would be good to define the exact type of content to expect every month, but the honest truth is that we’re constantly working with developers and publishers to get great content in Plus all the time. Sometimes that’s going to be a PS3 Full game. Sometimes it’s going to be a PSN game. Other times a Day 1 free game; or a PS one classic.

    but as far as the older description of the original plus content (2 years old ;) ) please adjust expectations there as we’ve rolled out a new philosophy on it. But I’ll be working with the teams to ensure as much clarity as possible can be achieved.

So is this just a few glimpses of some of the PLus stuff for the next few weeks?

Or is this all Plus is getting period?

IF that’s it, this is the worst plus update ever. I’ve been a member since the start so I’d know.

The instant games collection was a great EXTRA for plus, but every since that came out, the normal plus bonuses that we’re supposed to get have all but dissapeard.

Instant Game Collection seemed like a reason to never stop being a Plus member, but what happened to everything else we’re supposed to get? Good discounts? Avatars/themes? Minis? Vita sales like other countries get? etc…

First you took away Qore (literally half the reason I had plus). Now you’re slowing taking everything else???

Enough of the free games rotation stuff, RETURN PLUS TO WHAT IT WAS PLEAS!!!

    next few weeks is what this covers. And Plus continues to be what it was; except now there’s a ton of additional games that will always be in the collection. Qore went away because, well Qore went away. it wasn’t a thing where because Plus came along , Qore stopped type of thing. The programming was just determined to see a sunset is all.

    Plus was always a rotation of free games, right? New stuff came and went all the time, but there was never a stable of games to play.

Hey Morgan, is there any chance of Rayman Origins going on sale on PS3 & Vita? Amazon and Steam are selling it for $20 now. Even the Vita version is below $30 on Amazon now. I’d love to buy the digital version, but not with that huge price discrepancy!

@YouFromTheFuture

You must’ve misread the big E3 PS+ announcement, as Instant Game Collection is the new content direction for PS+. They’re not limiting themselves to a set amount of certain types of content anymore.


68

+ boomstickbhg on July 16th, 2012 at 11:25 am said:

Wait they announced at E3 that they’ve changed the Plus content but they never bothered to tell the people who’ve been paying for Plus?

Mentioning at E3 or posting it here doesn’t help. If you’re going to completely change a paid subscription service, you better have the common sense/decency to directly contact your members to tell them they don’t get what they paid for anymore.

    well, we definitely blew out the marketing channels to get this messaging to people, and we did also email all Plus members as well, but only to those that are opted in for marketing communications. Since this wasn’t a service level change, and more of a advertisement for Plus, we couldn’t legally email every Plus member; only those who are opted in.

    I do hope you continue to check out Plus, and hope that you see some good value to the membership outside of Qore. Check it out, and definitely leave your feedback on the content everytime we update.

Good discounts and 2 ps1 free games, I like plus with Gotham City Impostors, Pac Man DX Championship Edition, and Renegade Ops that we received free earlier this month, always great discounts, I have been happy with the discounts and free games that we received every month was great, im happy with say 4 free games a month, plus the great discounts, always enough to keep me busy, I have been happy with playstation plus since day 1, and I will always continue to renew it because I get my $50 worth out of it, and I will renew it every year and always keep it, even though everyone can’t be pleased this ps plus member is pleased.

I may buy Papo, Sound Shapes, and CS but still up in the air on them. I’m kind of tired of buying games and then getting them free with Plus. Out of the last 15 games we got from Plus I already owned 12 of them. I may just stop buying games and just pay for Plus every year.

The PSOne games are a let down this time. Don’t care for sports games so not my bag. Oh well, hopefully the next month plus games will be stuff I don’t already own.

+ boomstickbhg on July 16th, 2012 at 11:32 am said:

Just to mention in case people already forgot.

A QORE subscription was about half the price of PLUS. So Plus, including QORE, half of our money basically went to keeping QORE alive/getting QORE membership.

You took away QORE and added NOTHING.

So now we’re paying the same price in order to get significantly less. Especially with the smaller and less interesting plus updates that have happened since the 12 Free games thing.

So first QORE taken away, no price difference just less for our money. And now this…

Wow….

Still no Vita games AND there’s no word on when the PS1 support is coming to Vita!

Hell at this point why aren’t you guys discounting Vita games in order to spark interest in the device?

I want this device I’ve bought to succeed. Why is Sony so hell bent on not allowing me to enjoy my product.

Morgan, because he never went a full PSP game for free on PSN Plus? for example one or other of the Final Fantasy game for Sony, has many games that could be given and would not cost too expensive. Another thing I liked most when you leave the list at the beginning of months of free content and was given a game a week, there was more fun to wait, so we won it all in a day and then do not come any more XD

@ 20, froxfx- try connecting your Vita directly to your PS3 via the charging/transfer cable. I haven’t bought a Mini in a while & being a + member, most of the Minis I’ve downloaded to my PS3 (Important! Do NOT install them.) are free. Turn on your PS3, plug in your Vita & access the Content Transfer App, select PS3 to Vita, & then “Copy All.”

Many of my Minis worked!

@ 31, Monterossa- not much news on the Japanese front, I’m guessing by TGS we’ll see some cool announcements.

@ 45, MaverickSEY, great idea! Sometimes I can’t make it to my PS3 in time to purchase content. Would be nice if the stores would merge for the PS//VIta.

Thank you for replying to an obviously upset customer.

Although the Why didnt something replace QORE/Membership become cheaper issue was never addressed.

I did enjoy the Instant Game Collection when it came out but ever since, every plus update has been smaller than they used to be. So between that and QORE being taken away, we are without a doubt, getting less for our money than we use to.

So now that everything has apparently changed, is there a website to go to that lists what Plus use to offer exactly what it is that we will now be getting? I’d very much like to see something like that before I renew again.

Morgan, I appreciate you commenting and doing your best to explain yourself. I don’t have a complaint about you specifically, but rather SCEA. Playstation Plus is an amazing service. The Vita is an amazing handheld that has been out for five months. Why is Playstation Plus not on it? There are games, some from Sony themselves, that can be discounted, some PSN games that can be “free” like on PS3, etc. I guess I’m just having a tough time understanding SCEA’s position on the lack of attention towards Vita. I know it’s not doing well sales-wise, but ignoring the platform is only making that worse. I don’t understand why there aren’t more PSN games coming out for it, when it’s quite literally the perfect platform to have PSN titles for; there’s touchscreen plus buttons, plus two analog sticks and the ability to take it anywhere. Sound shapes is coming next month. This, however, ignores the fact that there’s about two months without any PSN games released (the last being a two dollar AR game that’s quite lacking in content).

Where’s the PSN games? Where is Playstation Plus? I understand not having them in February; maybe March. But it’s been five months and it’s still not a word.

Not much here I look forward to. Except the fact the PSone games are back, but the ones here aren’t that exciting. Any reason you could give us Tomb Raider 1 for free one week, I know it was free before, but I never got it. Or lower the price. $10 when the sequels are $6 seems weird. Would make more sense if The Last Revelation was $10. A lot of people in the PSone era never played that one, considering it wasn’t in the 3-game platinum collection back then. I didn’t like how short the summer sale was. But at least I got something good out of it. If it’s a SUMMER sale it should last more than just a week, maybe it should have been 4th of July sale?

Just to throw in my 2 cents about the deals.

I’d rather see 50% off slightly older titles that haven’t a good sale yet (like I Am Alive, Elevator Action, HotD 4, Scarygirl, Slam Bolt Scrappers, like you did with the Summer Sale) than 20% off day 1 discounts. I remember getting 50% (or more) off games like 4 Elements HD, Mercury Hg, Explodemon, Hamilton’s Great Adventure, etc. just a few months after their release, and really enjoyed it.

So for example this month, I’d rather see 50% off Slam bolt Scrappers and Scarygirl rather than 20% off Dyad and Malicious. Like I said, just my 2 cents though.

Thanks!

@ 78, megamixer, that’s too bad. PSN PLAY revolves around a selection of Summer releases- either Sony exclusive titles or 3rd party content. Obviously this exludes older releases as the “Play” promotion has a pre-order option. IMO, this season’s PSN Play selection def. beats last year’s. If any FPS can pull me away from Payday it’s Valve’s CS:GO!

Fingers crossed on seeing the Zen Pinball update for the Vita this week

EDIT to my last comment, #95. I didn’t see this line in “The Games” section of the update:

“In addition, the sale will feature 50% discounts on select titles for Plus members too.”

So thanks, and please disregard my last comment. Keep up the great work! :-)

As someone higher up said: “This month seems to be on par with the older store updates”.

Indeed, and to clarify that ‘on par with older store updates’ to me really is synonymous with ‘not worth paying the subscription fee’. The older store updates never where enough for me to tempt me to subscribing PS+. I subscribed because the June ‘instant game collection’ seemed worth it.

If upcoming monthly updates are slowly going to errode this collection, I won’t be renewing.

As discounted games go, buying trade-in games, the prices are often on-par or better than PS+ discounts and you actually get a physical disk rather than something locked to a specific PSN account.
