August 21st PlayStation Plus Update

Dust 514

Closed Beta Access and 50% off Mercenary Pack Add-On

Remember that Beta I talked about earlier? I know, it was a bit in the making but we’re happy to welcome our friends from the Dust 514 team into Plus with exclusive access for the closed beta. Dust 514 is the free to play first person shooter that may change the face of how we battle online in games. Help test the first live direct connection to the extremely popular EVE Online MMO as players on the main server in DUST 514 and EVE Online can chat in real time and send in-game mail between games. It’s a first in gaming, it’s free to play when it releases later this fall, and exclusive access is coming to Plus members on 8/21. You’ll have until September 4th to jump in the Beta. Read more about the features available in this Beta in a post from Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer on Dust 514.

PlayStation Plus Update August 2012

We’re also sporting a 50% discount on the Mercenary Pack DLC for Dust 514 which gives access to in-game currency to spend in game, skill boosts, and exclusive gear. Now I know what you’re thinking: this is a beta, how can I buy Add-Ons if it’s in beta? Good question! Any Add-Ons that are purchased with Dust 514 while the game is in Beta will be carried over when the game releases later this fall. So buy with confidence! There’s a ton of great Dust 514 blog posts; read up on the game and jump in the Beta.

PlayStation Plus Update August 2012

Counter Strike: Global Offensive

@90, look at the PSN+ Europe is getting and you sure will complain.

@92, we want PS3 Full Games to be replaced by other Full Games.

People are complaing because we are comparing our updates to the european ps+.
If both services got the same updates, we would be happy.
But since they are having much more better content, we demand the same quality for us.

Plus continues to be a great value for my gaming dollar. While the offerings that are being added aren’t exactly my cup of tea, I could find myself liking Walking Dead and then bam, they make money when I buy the rest of the episodes. I kinda have to shed a tear at the Dust discount, I paid full price for it and to be honest the Aurum you get is already worth 20bux.

Why does EU have such good deals? Sony, fire your PSN employees here and give us people with brains like the Europe PSN employees. And im also tired of being ripped off. You buy a **** game, and it lowers in price the next day or it gets offered free for plus.

Anyone else getting really tired of Morgan acknowledging that the current month’s offerings suck but saying “just wait until you see what we have for you NEXT month!”? He needs a new line as we’re several months into the Plus offerings sucking.

And the PSVita is the new PSX-DVR. PSX-DVR flopped for several reasons and was discontinued. Sony might as well discontinue PSvita. Nobody is satisfied, there no games, and its like sony forgot it.

i just have a feeling a lot of people seem to be these 3 month subscribers that are just looking to cash in. i am sorry for 18$ you can’t expect ps3 full games the whole 3 months. i mean seriously just think for 18$ you got to play 16 games if you count the two monthly rotations and you are going to whine and complain about them being psn or ps3 games!!!! all i want to say is i miss the discounts that used to come with plus for a lot of games. keep up the good work guys and next month there will be ps3 releases as free games because they want people to for the yearly subscription or renew their 3 month subscription which i am fine because they got to make money out of this service people….

+ KidCommando on August 13th, 2012 at 11:31 am said:

ccrogers15,

Your memory is not the awesomest.

Some months will be better then others. Some months will be disappointing depending on what games you already own.

At the end of the subscription year however, if you add up everything you received, you would absolutely see the value.

But you are most likely an uniformed 3-monther with expectations without bounds. again, don’t renew, this program is too smart for you.

+ ReptileHand on August 13th, 2012 at 11:32 am said:

Oh and I kind of liked having the PS1 games.

The old plus was nice.

A PSN title each month and MAYBE we’d get a surprise Full Game. That’s what I liked! I really hate seeing complainers want FULL GAMES. You’re getting a lot of games! I’m not renewing because of lack of games. I won’t renew this September because I have TOO MANY games. I barely play the freebies too. I liked the old version. A PS1 game and a DLC title, hell we’d sometimes get 3 PS1 games!

Screw the instant game collection, because you want to know why? Everyone’s expectations are through the roof. With it, you promised Full games just like in the E3 update. This is beginning to look a lot like the old plus without PS1 games or bonus goodies. It’s by no means a bad thing, just … not what you advertised when you made the switch.

I have to say I’d like the old layout with having games spread out through the month and limited to a few titles (1/2) plus a PS1 game. I don’t want to feel like I’m complaining, I’m just providing feedback. I am liking the Discount on the mercenary pack. Will purchase! (even though I already have the beta).


109

+ ccrogers15 on August 13th, 2012 at 11:33 am said:

Grognard66,

Me. He said that last month as well. And all we get this month is 2 underrated PSn games, and 2 parts of a 5 part game.


110

+ Darth-Krayt on August 13th, 2012 at 11:33 am said:

Disregard the people bashing this update. This is a fantastic one. I like that this month was 4 PSN games instead of full PS3 games. I like full PS3 games too, but I usually have more fun with PSN games, so I like the mix of games over the last 2/3 months as a whole.

This update is a great one for me. ANd I can’t imagine how it would be “bad” for anybody. Outland is amazing. BloodRayne is pretty good. So excited the pre-order for CounterStrike is up. Can’t wait to play the game, and the Plus price makes the value even greater than it already was considering I initially thought this game was going to be a retail release at at least $40. And beta access to DUST 514, which IMO is one of the greatest things Plus has offered, I just wish it was offered earlier. I’ve been reading all the info on DUST, and I think this is going to be one of the most revolutionary FPS experiences on consoles to date, and we can play the game for free!!! Though I’ll certainly be getting the premium upgrade, especially with that great discount.

I see Sony is in touch with the gamer, they understand we’re broke, lol. Value for money, nothing touches PS3 with a Plus account.

KidCommando, Seriously think before you talk.

Ive had plus before. The other deal before may was better. This just sucks. the SAME content is still here like infamous 2 and the others. We get a full game removed for 2 psn games and 1 unfinished game. Other people say its bad too. 80% of people are not happy. Go with your 20% and stay out of this conversation.

This PS Plus update has to be the worst!!!

Why not give us PS Plus members any two of these games instead of the 2 lousy PSN games that you’ve mentioned:
1) Batman Arkham City: GOTY Edition
2) Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
3) Amazing Spiderman
4) Metal Gear Solid 4
5) Mass Effect 3


115

+ RyanSaotome on August 13th, 2012 at 11:39 am said:

I think the thing a lot of the Plus defenders forget is that we don’t get any of these games. These are all rentals, like a Netflix… we can play them on demand, but we don’t actually own them. What I expected from this service was access to a large amount of full PS3 games, like a Netflix. What it has turned out to be is that you only get a couple PS3 games, and its mainly just indie games. Its quite the disappointment to me.

I also miss when they had more significant discounts… that mattered to me more since I prefer actually owning games instead of just renting them. But these days, the discounts have gone down in %, and there are less of them total.

I’d take the old Playstation Plus from earlier this year over what we have now in a heartbeat.

+ KidCommando on August 13th, 2012 at 11:40 am said:

ccrogers15,

lower your expectations or provide me with a link that says EXACTLY what was promised you.

I will wait for your epiphany.

It is your own fault for your wild expectations.

This is NA PS+

Do you compare everything you buy with how the rest of the world purchases it?

Quit being DUMB.

You would rather have 1 PSN game, 1 PSone game, and 2 Minis per month?????????

+ Dark_Yoda_313 on August 13th, 2012 at 11:42 am said:

Man, what a bunch of whiners some PS+ subscribers can be! No-one forced you to sign up, it’s completely optional, unlike Live, where they annually skin you for the most basic of features – playing online! Plus, you need to buy Live whether you like the deals or not. Plus represents awesome value for money over the course of a year. Sure, there’s going to be months where you’ve bought some stuff, but there’ll be other times where you will be super-pleased you bought in.

What I like about Plus is the opportunity to try games that I was curious about, but not enough to drop money on. Bloodrayne falls into this category for me – a game where I liked the demo just fine, but there were a ton of other games in my collection that would always be in front of it, so I did not purchase it at the time. Now I can fire it up at my leisure, no pressure to buy it in the week of a sale or anything.

Imagine if you were new to Playstation and picked up a year of Plus (or even the three month card) when you bought the console. You instantly have a bunch of great games to play which would otherwise have cost you in excess of $200, with more to come, over the next twelve months.

HA! Gotcha Morgan :) i knew it was outland xD and well i bought that one already… and never really played it lol so i guess i can say i bought it for nothing cuz here it is free now xD but for bloodrayne im glad i liked the demo when it came out last year but i never played it so im happy at least one of the games isnt one i have

but seriously now Morgan…. Next month… It has to be AT LEAST 2 Full Games to change because its enough already those games with platinum trophies have been there too long its time to switch those out and how about 1 minis next month too? That would be nice. Angry Birds anyone? Now that i said Angry Birds i wonder why a Vita touch version hasnt come out with all the different AB games combined ito one big game…. I cant be the only guy whose thought of this come on man :)

+ Rockefellow on August 13th, 2012 at 11:47 am said:

@KidCommando:

I’m not defending that guy, but Sony has revoked promised features that you PAID for. Avatars? Themes? PS1 games? Minis? They were all promised at a specific rate, each month, under contract, which Sony has inexplicably taken away and replaced with a program that, as far as the community seems to think, is way, way, worse. Even the wonderfully inept Morgan Haro knows that it’s terrible, as he’s fed the same “It’ll be better next month, sorry” line to users for likely 5-6 updates in a row now.

I apologize if I enjoy getting what I’m told I paid for. I guess not everyone is allowed to disagree with something that’s blatantly inadequate.


124

+ Darth-Krayt on August 13th, 2012 at 11:47 am said:

And just to once again offer my feedback for your PSN pre-order program. I think it’s a fantastic idea, and you’re doing the right thing to offer a Plus discount on the pre-orders. It’s win/win for all parties from Sony through to the consumer, But, to quote Columbo “There’s…… just one thing that’s bothering me”.

What you get for pre-ordering is not something I care for, or want. A Theme? I appreciate the offer, but no thanks. I won’t even download it when I pre-order CS:GO. I would like you to go the same route that gets me to pre-order games at retail. Exclusive (at least timed) in-game content. Exclusive guns, skins, characters, customising items…..these kinds of things. That’s what gets people excited about pre-ordering, not a theme. Especially when custom themes made by people and given away all over the internet for free, typically blow official dynamic themes out of the water, nevermind static themes.

Just some feedback for the people at Sony who make such decisions to think about.
Thanks for reading.

+ bamahollis88 on August 13th, 2012 at 11:48 am said:

Sony really must not want my money with this kind of update. This month we got 2/5 of a game and two PSN games, while taking out a full game. This would be ok if we had a really good update last week, but it wasn’t anything great, in fact the only good update was the very first one when all 12 of the games came out. How can EU get a lot of great games but the U.S. cant? At this point in time I see no reason to renew my subscription.

Had to log in to add my voice to those who are pleased with PS+. I don’t care if it’s a retail game or PSN game, I care that I’m interested in the title (and Outland and Bloodrayne seem like they’re worth a go). Walking Dead, which was somehow not on my radar, was amazing. I beat both episodes over the weekend. I don’t care that they’re $5 PSN games. It was 6 hours of gaming greatness that cost me $50 a year to PS+, in addition to all of the other games I’ve downloaded. This is my first year as a Plus Member and I already know I’m going to renew next year.

+ liledawg on August 13th, 2012 at 11:51 am said:

Another great update more free games and discounts, even a beta which is everything ps plus promises. Now here are my thoughts to what alot say, People getting mad that a PSN game replaces a full PS3 game, you act like you don’t get to play that full ps3 game that they removed no more but you do, well I do because I always stay subscribed since day one and I have so many free games in my download list still that are great that soemtimes I don’t know what I want to play. Also if I was a first time user to ps plus seeing that list of 12 games that I get for subscribing plus the discounts, and knowing that next month they will offer even more free games, and even though that a full ps3 game may get replaced with a PSN game I would remember that hey thats okay with me because I still have the game that they replaced it with and the new one that took it’s place, now that is a win win for me.


129

+ liledawg on August 13th, 2012 at 11:52 am said:

I just look at the brighter side of things. I also see people saying about minis not being offered, well as I see people complaining that a psn game replaces a psn game, I could imagine people would even be more irrate if a mini replaced a full ps3 game, but either way for me I am happy with everything that gets offered. Good job sony, oh yeah if I already own a game like I did Little Big Planet 2, just give it to a friend since it on disc and I download the ps plus one.

Wow, things are getting angry around here, Morgan. Lots of complaining and complaining about complaining.
Here’s what I think: honestly, these are 2 games that weren’t remotely on my radar but I’m not mad or anything. PS+ still has a ridiculous amount of value. And I appreciate surprises. However, SCEE is still looking better by comparison, and I think both territories would be wise to make an attempt to offer the same content. I’m looking forward to the Dust beta as well as the Harvest Moon sales. And I’m excited to see what’s coming next month. Fingers crossed for Motorstorm Apocolypse, Dead Space 2, Darksiders, Resistance — something along those lines.

@Rockefellow

I would prefer PSN and PS3 games over avatars, themes, PSone, and Minis anyday.

I like the new Plus much better. We are getting more PSN and PS3 games then we did in previous years.

What else do you want the man to say? He has to deal with people like you with crazy expectations on things that were not promised WITH THIS NEW PLUS.

This is a new program compared to the previous version. The ONLY thing that was promised was Instant Game Collection and games would be rotated. THAT IS ALL!

Currently, how this new program is running, we are getting better quality and MORE games. If you miss themes, PSone, and Minis, that is your complaint.

To say you are not getting what you expected is your own fault.

You can’t expect people not to complain when one region gets full PS3 games and the other gets old PSN games.

You got to know it guaranteed to hapen.

When it happened last month I thought SONY would listen to us.

But I was wrong. I know there is a difference between SCEU and SCEA but aren’t we all members of the Sony Playstation family.

It just feels that grandad Sony loves my cousins in Europe more than he loves us.

@114 RyanSaotome

It’s true. PSN Plus is a subscription based gaming on demand service. As long as you’re a subscriber you get to play the games. It’s not hidden. That’s the whole point of the service. As you said it’s like netflix. I’m not understanding why you consider that a bad thing? Do you complain to netflix that you can’t watch videos when your sub runs out? (assuming you are a netflix subscriber, I know I’m not but I understand it, and there’s nothing to complain about)

Why don’t you compare Plus to Sony’s main competitor’s subscription service. Breaking it down with your own logic, MicroSoft is charging you a subscription just so you have access to the online half of games. If you don’t renew your subscription, you are no longer allowed to play the online portion of games you actually paid for. It’s not like you get Halo or Gears for free, eh?

Whats better. $50 a year to have access to like $1000 in games, or $50 a year for the right to play the online half of games you must also pay for?

Morgan and Sony, this update is complete B.S. You replace a ps3 full title with crappy psn games. What are you guys problem? EU plus is kicking the sh$$ out of NA plus. If the game does not have a platinum trophy then don’t offer it to plus subscribers. No platinum automatically says the game sucks 9 out 10 times. If you people don’t switch to the EU plan then I’m done with plus. I have been a plus member for over a year now but not for much longer. I own my own bussiness and if I treated customers in two seperate ways like the NA and EU plan you guys are doing I would be out of bussiness. Or sued for discrimination. So fix your issue or plus NA will be done soon because we the CONSUMERS here in NA will not stand to be treated like SH$$ while EU customers get treated better. I have 55 days left on my subscription if you guys offer CRAP like this in September then I’m not renewing and I will be letting everyone know plus NA is a joke and not to waste money on it.

To the editor/author of this article,

I also have one more thing to say.

Please, for the love of all that is sane, inform every reader here that just because Dust 514 is horrible now it doesn’t mean it’s going to be horrible upon release. Dust 514 is a beta, not some stupid demo. A beta is basically a work in progress.

I’m a beta tester and I can tell you that Dust 514 has already gone through multiple changes including that of its core mechanics and will continue to be improved before it hits the market. Due to the restrictions imposed by CCP’s NDA requirement, I cannot post details as to what changes there are at the moment.

What is it with players these days confusing “closed betas” with “demos” when they are clearly two completely different beasts? CCP even posted on the forums, login screen, E3 press conference, Fanfest 2012, etc. that Dust 514 is incomplete and will be improved upon over time before the end of the year. Yet, we have idiots going around posting comments that Dust 514 sucks? What did you people expect from an incomplete game that is still undergoing development?
