Morgan Haro's Avatar + Posted by Morgan Haro on Oct 29, 2012 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

October is just about over, but before we say goodbye to this month (which brought Payday: The Heist, NFL Blitz, and King of Fighters XIII free to PS Plus members), we wanted to point out a great new PlayStation 3 Bundle only on Amazon.com that includes one year of PlayStation Plus.

PS3 Plus Bundle

Get the Amazon.com PS3 Bundle with 1 Year of PS Plus

If you know anyone who has yet to dive into PlayStation 3, this might be a great item to recommend (or buy them if you’re feeling generous). With a one year membership of PS Plus included, this bundle will keep anyone plenty busy with great games, awesome discounts, and exclusive access to PS3 features throughout that first year with Plus.

Now then, let’s greet some of those great PS Plus discounts that will help you take your gaming dollar further.

Although this week’s update is not much better than last week’s… It is actually great to see deals for DLC for more relevant games and hopefully it gets better. There are many games that have released DLC last year that would be great for PS Plus.

Morgan it’s BS that you only anser the people that kiss your ass. Why won’t you tell us when the NA will get the new store. You always tell us that it will get better in the next PS update. Who ever job it is to bring games to the plus needs to do his job better. and if he dose not SONY needs to get someone in his or her place that knows how to do it better.

1. i am excited for the one piece discount.

2. I thought ps+ was a bit meek this month, but i am excited for next month.

3. I know ps+ is out for vita in November and looking forward to it with doubt.
–my concerns about the vita ps+ is this; They have just taken away the minis and ps1 games from our regular ps+ and slapped them into a shiny PS+ VITA EDITION!!!! I own a Vita and it has been sitting on the shelf collecting dust for quite sometime… Not many games have been released at retail or downloadable so when they release ps+ for vita i really doubt there will be much to give away.

4. Every week you should at the very least give us a free avatar or theme to keep it consistent with free stuff in between games. those are easy things to give away and people don’t usually spend there money on them.

5. This months ps+ doesn’t anger me to not renew my ps+ service. I have been a ps+ member for 2 or 3 years and love the service so much that my subscription doesn’t expire till the year 2016 so im in it for the long haul.

Sony has a huge console foothold in both Japan, and especially the UK. The Xbox 360 has been the dominate console in the US, and Sony took a huge bite out of that with the E3 PS Plus announcements.

Then they turn around, and offer discounts on cheap games for the US, that don’t really appeal to the major US crowd, and give away games like Red Dead Redemption, Motorstorm, Crysis 2 etc. that are huge game styles that US gamers eat up.

Especially with the next gen around the corner, why is Sony crapping on it’s US base? It seems like they don’t understand it’s customer base regionally at all. Shouldn’t they be trying to gain a bigger US customer base by offering games that these gamers like to play rather then offering them games Sony would like them to try out?

If this choice of games is controlled by the Sony NA team, they are either sucking really badly at their publisher relations or pushing their own personal preferences over what would draw in and keep customers to PS Plus. If this choice of games is being made by publishers, then I swear they are trolling you.

‘Cause I’m just 24 bucks from it =D

+ Sowulo on October 30th, 2012 at 12:11 pm said:

@370 is hard to say what the region wants, is major knowledge that americans love FPS over all other games, that they don’t like RPGs, but there’s always someone that likes, so it’s hard to determine exactly.

What I believe is that I pay 50 dollars per YEAR.

Let’s say that any game costs 20 dollars, just for math

12 games (instant game collection) + 3 games x 12 months (games changing in the instant game collection)

Just in here we have: 48 games x 20 dollars = 960 dollars

So what are the guys complaining?

If you don’t take all the games, you could take your money back fast enough.

If you purchase discounted items, then the value just go up.


376

+ Recon19D3 on October 30th, 2012 at 12:26 pm said:

@380

Your correct, it is easy to make your money back and it’s still not a bad deal. However the difference between the offerings is pretty drastic and I’m curious why this is more then anything. Is it Sony’s choice or the publishers offerings?

Especially games like NFL Blitz and King of Fighters which are very niche heavy games and don’t have a broad appeal at all. Payday the Heist makes sense though. I don’t see why they aren’t also pushing more PS3 exclusives, especially stuff like Flower, Motorstorm, and stuff from Sony Santa Monica. Surely they have the resources to do this and it would help open up these games to gamers and new PS3 owners.

On the other hand, it’s like paying $50 a year for the newspaper. If I’m not reading it and I have no interest in it’s contents it’s a waste of money, no matter how small of an amount. In my house we recently cut out all of our little expenses that we weren’t using. Hulu, Music Unlimited, Sirius etc. Stuff that’s nice but not needed and we ended up saving $45 a month overall. It adds up overtime and especially in today’s world economy content needs to be desired and not just “kind of cool”.

As far as the discounted items go, it’s a pretty minor deal. Most of them are usually discounts on $19.99 games or less. If you can afford the $14.99 the extra $5 won’t kill you.

Also, it’s basically like saying I’m paying X amount of money, so I can get a discount and then spend Y amount of money. Which is more money then I would have spent to begin with.

If they were smart they’d stick to games like Borderlands, Crysis 2, Assassins Creed and some PSN exclusive offerings.

Borderlands was a great example of an older game still worth playing, it was free right before Borderlands 2 came out generating more hype. AND it had DLC that was sold on the side. I, like I’m sure alot of people downloaded Borderlands and bought the DLC. Sony got more money from me then they would have, but not because of a minor discount, but because they gave me enough to get started and I wanted more of it. Starhawk single player for free, and then $19.99 for the Multiplayer was also a great idea. I’ve wanted to see SP and MP split for years and Sony is doing that.

Sowulo

You assume every ps+ deal everyone who has it jumps on it. With my time with PS+ (i had a year) i probably only bought/download 1-3 content that was given. Majority was content i had already own and the rest was content i had zero interest in, in the first place. So why would i bought something i already own(if that is even possible) or buy content I will never touch? Thats just a waste of my time/bandwidth/memory on my ps3 and more importantly money. I don’t download things just because they are free, or given at a discount. I obviously need to have at least a little interest in the games, or content its asking for.

People are complaining because it seems like all the content we are getting from PS+ are content that majority owns already, or content people have little of interest in. If you are loving the content given to you from PS+ with every update by all mean enjoy it, but at least realize there are people still unhappy with and sony can at least try give people what they want, its not that hard as they should be sending in content to be approved daily just incase it takes awhile like if there is issues.

Will all this Vita content cut into the regular playstation content? I don’t own a Vita and could care less.

Also, I’d like more free dynamic themes, preferably non-game specific ones.

I did what I said I wouldn’t do… I bought Dead Space 2 for 10$ just before the end of the sale.

Oh well, I guess the fact that you made me buy it instead of adding to the IGC means I’ll have less of a reason to renew my subscription.

A game like Dead Space 2 is something that I probably want to replay again maybe a year or so from now. If it was an IGC game that would mean sticking with PS+ to be able to play it. But now that I bought I can play it even if I drop my Plus subscription.

So yes… that’s how it works. Put some awesome games with good replay value in the IGC and people are more likely to renew. Put crap in and… maybe its better for to let your subscription run out.

If one’s subsription is about to run out and the stuff currently in one’s account doesn’t have anything in it that I’d like to play in the next month or so… and the update looks like crap. Why should I decide to take the 50 dollar hit to renew?

It seems better to let it lapse, then wait until the IGC has rotated enough decent games that I can honestly say to myself, *now* it is worth 50$.


390

+ pers1m0ny on October 30th, 2012 at 5:40 pm said:

… continued…

Or maybe, when your subscription lapses… don’t renew until you see an IGC you think is worth your 50$ in either the US or EU PS+. Pickup whichever one meets this requirent first.

(I think we can all guess which one will win that contents :-)
