PlayStation Plus Update: Free Double Dragon Neon and Scott Pilgrim, Early Jet Set Radio Access

Morgan Haro's Avatar + Posted by Morgan Haro on Sep 10, 2012 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

We’ve got a lot cooking for PlayStation Plus members this week with Double Dragon Neon and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World joining the Instant Game Collection, among other great perks. Read on to learn more!

September 11th PlayStation Plus Update

Double Dragon Neon

Free for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: Free)
After 25 years, the original beat ‘em up is bringing pure over-the-top baditude to PSN, and it’s free for PlayStation Plus members on its first day of release! In Double Dragon Neon, Billy and Jimmy are kicking butts and taking names as they search for their girlfriend Marian (she seems to have a habit of getting kidnapped). This time, her disappearance is at the hands of the supernatural scourge, Skullmageddon! Face off against a gaggle of goons, some familiar (Williams, Linda, and Abobo, of course!) and some that are absolutely out of this world.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game

Free for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: Free)
This adaptation captures all the fun and style of the critically acclaimed Scott Pilgrim comics, and the humor of the revered movie, and distills it into a retro-influenced side scrolling beat em’ up, complete with 4-player co-op. With awesome 16-bit animation by world-famous pixel artist Paul Robertson, and a hyper-active soundtrack from chiptune heroes Anamanaguchi, it’s hard not to love Scott Pilgrim, and now you can play it as part of the Instant Game Collection.

PlayStation Plus Update

Jet Set Radio

Exclusive Early Access for PlayStation Plus Members and 10% off (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $8.99)
SEGA’s new release of the classic Dreamcast title is hitting PlayStation Plus users first! Get it a week before anyone else, and play all the levels while listening to those classic JSR phat beatz (complete with the original world-wide soundtrack) that made this title a true original. This time, of course, you get it with full Trophy support, sharp HD visuals, and you’ll be the first to play it on current-gen consoles.

Max Payne 3 PS3 Full Game and Bundle

33% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Game – Regular Price: $59.99, PS Plus Price: $40.49; Bundle: Regular Price: $67.49, PS Plus Price: $60.74)
Rockstar’s gritty, action packed noir thriller Max Payne 3 arrived to critical acclaim earlier this year. If you haven’t had a chance to play it yet, now may be the perfect time. It arrives on PSN with this week’s update as a PS3 Full Game, and while there will be a 25% discount for all PSN members on the game, Plus members can grab it for an even better deal at 33% off — just $40.49. You can also buy the bundle complete with the Rockstar Pass, a value of $89.98, for $60.74.

That’s it for now, check back with us next week when we’ll have more PlayStation Plus news to share! In the meantime, leave your comments and thoughts on Plus below, or join the conversation on the PlayStation Forums in the Plus section.

I have so many questions? will you be having a deal on the season pass for Max Payne 3 if I bought the pass by itself? And sorry for all the questions :-$

Looks like Sony America is finally stepping it’s game up! Thanks guys! Give us a retail game next month and all faith will be restored.

So what’s going on with the servers today?!? It’d be nice if somebody had a job to inform us about server maintenance etc… When will we be able to play online again?!?

Nice week of PS+. Double Dragon Neon is why I have this service. That’s a game I probably would not purchase, but for fee, I’ll grab it. Respect!

Finally something nobody will have. I’ll be downloading DD but I already own Scott Pilgrim. What’s up with the lame 10% discount on Jet Set? That sure doesn’t make it a must buy now price in my opinion. Can we also maybe get a free dynamic theme sometime. Haven’t had one given to Plus members in quite some time.

    + Morgan Haro on September 10th, 2012 at 10:48 am said:

    The big grab for Plus users here is that you’re also getting it before anyone else. Including the other guys. Although 10% as a number isn’t huge; on a Day 1 new release, it’s always welcome in my book.

+ Redikol on September 10th, 2012 at 10:50 am said:

Thanks for Double Dragon Neon, hope it’s good….I played the old Double Dragon’s as a kid, great memories! I just hope it isn’t murdered like the movie butchered it. I already own Scott Pilgrim….

I remember getting Jet Set for $50 back in the Dreamcast days, so this is great deal., can’t wait.

@8, Setgang, For some stupid reason they’ve only put the maintenance announcements on Twitter, instead of the blog. Because the guy who used to post here, Seybald, is too busy tweeting about impt stuff like trying to find parking.

+ UltimateDisco on September 10th, 2012 at 10:59 am said:

@Morgan Will we ever get to see games like Double Dragon or Scott Pilgrim on the Vita? I love me some beat-em-ups, and to be able to play them on the go would be a WONDERFUL treat.

Also, is Jet Set Radio Cross Play or not? Thanks for the update, my friend.

    Nothing to report on those questions; except I believe that JSR is not cross-buy at this time.

+ KwietStorm on September 10th, 2012 at 11:00 am said:

Would be nice if some extra perks included some basic features like sign in/appear invisible and a categorized download history. PS3 is too old to not have simple options.

+ io-knight on September 10th, 2012 at 11:11 am said:

Bundle: Regular Price: $67.49, PS Plus Price: $60.74

I feel like that Regular Price must be wrong… typo, or great deal for the nonplussed?

Scott Pilgrim was one of my fav games the year it was released. I wanna get Jet Set Radio but not if it doesn’t play on Vita as well.


21

+ MisterShine on September 10th, 2012 at 11:19 am said:

I second snakeeyes, if I buy the version for ps3 will that work for vita later down the line when it is released, or are they separate?

A pity I own Scott Pilgrim already, but that game is so awesome I can’t really complain.

+ MarkakaJin on September 10th, 2012 at 11:55 am said:

Meh on Scott Pilgrim but nevertheless, it’s a good game. I like Double Dragon and I used to play it in the arcades, so it’s cool to have this new one become free. I’ll pass on Jet Set Radio because I’m looking forward to the next episode of The Walking Dead.

Can you do a discount for re-subscribing to PS+ like you guys are doing in Europe?? 25% off is a pretty sweet!

why not make it $4.99???

at least we get to play it early.

Lovin’ Double Dragon’s art, but I’ve already dipped into Scoott Peelgreem’s pocket, though this could be an excuse to actually get further in the game. Max Payne 3, though, doesn’t interest me. Yeah, a rare video gamer these days, who doesn’t care for shooters that aren’t TF2. Jet Set Radio’s piquing me, but I’ve gotta be picky until I get an income again. But, hey, PS+ keeps providing SOMETHING in the interim.

+ BunnySavior on September 10th, 2012 at 3:48 pm said:

What?! It’s 3:49pm and I came here to laugh at the comments of people crying about today’s game replacements, but nothing! No fun!
I of course will be trying out these new freebies, just for kicks.

I would like to see tmnt turtles in time reshelled be part of psn plus.You think could make that happen please.Is would feel nice having those fun beat em up game alone with the simpsons arcade,xmen arcade,double dragon neon,final fight double impact.By the way is would be cool if you just release it again the same week at the new teenage mutant ninja turtles cartoon from nickeleon since the game look similar to the new cartoon.

I already have Scott Pilgrim and the Knives Chau DLC. Great game to add to the IGC. And I’m looking forward to DDN. I wasn’t sure if I was going to buy it when it came out, but since you’re giving it to me for free, I won’t complain.

Not interested in JSR at all, but discounts are always a good thing. Nice month so far. :)

@42 – That’s been taken off the digital shelves on both PSN and XBLA, due to expiring licenses or such. Convinced my bro-in-law (who’s the X360 to my PS3) to get it…less than a week before a Last Chance To See sort of sale. Held off on it, myself (grabbed the demo, though), but I definitely appreciated the Storefront notice of its imminent removal. Always nice to have a heads-up on that.
