November 20th PlayStation Plus Update

Uncharted: Golden Abyss (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

Uncover the dark secret behind the 400-year-old massacre of a Spanish expedition and follow the murderous trail of an ancient and secret Spanish sect. Undiscovered temple ruins, vast karst caverns of Central America, legendary lost cities, fantastic action sequences, and of course, Mr. Nathan Drake himself bring this complete Uncharted experience to PS Vita.
Gravity Rush (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

Gain a new perspective as you take on the role of Kat, a strong-willed girl seeking the means to protect her future in a world that’s crumbling to pieces. Taking gravity into your own hands to deliver devastating attacks, uncover the secrets to your past and explore a mysterious world. One of my personal favorite PS Vita games is yours to play free with PS Plus.
WipEout 2048 (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

With PS Vita’s enhanced controls – including front touch, rear touch, and six-axis motion sensors, this entry into the venerable WipEout series is one of the best. Optimized for 23rd century racing, you can compete with up to 8 other players on 10 new tracks. Don’t forget to stay on top of those online leaderboards too!
Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

One of the most unique and hilarious PS Vita titles also happens to be one of the best. A side-scrolling puzzle-platformer about an ornery mutant blob that, after being held captive in a lab that can only be described as something out of a retro sci-fi movie from the early ’50′s, escapes into the world and sets out on a path to consume everything. Use touch and the motion sensor functions combined with traditional analog stick controls to defeat the pathetic humans. Eat your way to freedom. It’s that fun.
Jet Set Radio (PS Vita)

Free for Plus Members

Tag, grind, and trick to the beat in SEGA’s hit game Jet Set Radio on PS Vita. Free for PS Plus members the same day it releases; fight for control of Tokyo-to, mark your turf with graffiti, tag walls, billboards, and even rival gang members! Perform tricks and flips on magnetically driven in-line skates, but watch out for the local police force. They’re not nice.
Final Fantasy Tactics (PS Vita, PSP)

Free for Plus Members

Originally released in 1998 on the original PlayStation, this first tactical RPG in the legendary Final Fantasy series, enthralled fans around the world with its unique artistic style and intricate storyline, and it’s certainly one of my top favorites of all time. A sublime strategy experience with an ever engrossing job system, tactical battles, tens of hours of gameplay, and remastered from the original, yours free with Plus.
Dungeon Defenders (PS3)

Free for Plus Members

An addictive blend of Tower Defense and cooperative online Action-RPG, Dungeon Defenders gives players 4 distinctive classes to lead through action-packed combat while upgrading their statistics, gathering tons of loot and inventory items, customizing & upgrading equipment, and developing unique class abilities. Play it online co-op, or splitscreen, free with PlayStation Plus.

How come classic sonic collection even though its listed on my ps3 store in the plus freebies section comes up as “unavailable” where a price should be? Assassins creed revelations ultimate edition under discounts also comes up as unavailable where the price should be also

+ azhartthisguy on November 21st, 2012 at 9:43 am said:

So I just clicked tell me more and the reason I can’t purchase the sonic bundle is because I already own sonic 2? And the reason I can’t purchase ac revelations bundle is because it says I own ac rev which I don’t. I just downloaded the 1 hour free trial…. Either way still a load of crap that your offering these as plus perks but don’t let us get them just because we own part of it already.

+ azhartthisguy on November 21st, 2012 at 9:52 am said:

Does this mean that any game I’ve ever downloaded the one hour free trial for if its ever made available for free or discount I’m not eligible for that perk? If that’s true (and it obviously is based on this ac rev situation) then that’s crap.

Right now I think the only thing ps+ is missing would be some deals or freebies in the movie department.
I’m a bit sad there is no freebies for me this time since I own the current ones already. I guess I’ll have to grab a vita now just wondering whats the price like on them too lazy to check it out for myself even though googling it is less work than typing out this long sentence lol.

I just got PlayStation Plus for my Vita. I don’t currently have a PlayStation 3, however I plan on purchasing a PS3 in the future. I am aware the games are recycled and I was wondering if there is a way to add the games to my download history for a later download without the need of a PS3. I looked on the playstation website but I can’t seem to figure this out. Your feedback would be appreciated.

Music Unlimited sounded nice but when I looked into it it requires a constant internet connection on the device right?

My mp3 players does not have that so I would rather use a service that allows me to transfer expiring mp3′s to it. It’s too bad because that is a hell of a price.

Nice to see some Vita stuff, do not own one yet (money troubles), but I definitely plan to own one someday and it will be nice to have a back catalog ready to rock with it!

Well….hate to say this, but I’m a little disappointed in Music Unlimited the last 3 days.

I’ve been a subscriber for a while now and there haven’t been any problems.

However, since the $12 Premium for a full year for Plus members started on Tuesday this week….the service has been very unstable.

Many times you can’t get in as the servers are busy, or if you’re on, it crashes and then tells you it can’t connect.

I understand there is a huge volume of people using it now, but I think Sony needs to monitor the servers a lot more now if they want to keep customers using this service.

I’ve been promoting this service to several friends who now are coming back saying they wish they didn’t purchase it, even at the low price as they can’t even get on.

Just my own 2 cents rant here.

Thanks, just thanks! I went ahead and purchased the Vita. Thanks Sony. Damn offer, too good to pass up.

*gumble, gumble 200 dollars gumble gumble*

Hey, wait a minute, this system is actually good. No, not good, but great! Merry Christmas to me! I don’t like touch screen. It bothers me, but that’s just me. I just hope the majority of games have the option to compleley turn it off. Another complaint, is the buttons are bit small. Other than that, it’s a fantasy handheld.

Thank you Sony.

Hey will this be available for free to already Uncharted owners. We payed about 50 bucks. Story was great and the trophies and the easter egg were also great. Its just that i dont think the “Black Market” is very competitive but its good for showing friends and stuff. I just dont get that feel for a 50$ game.

Hey Morgan, this is my first time posting on this blog. I have owned a Playstation 3 console since launch and had my account setup since day one. I never bothered to grab the plus service offered until this year. After reading about the Crysis 2 and other game collection EU received in comparison to what we have received, I was astonished like many others, although not angry. This update with the “Dungeon Defenders” turned out to be something worth playing. The game is highly addictive for my spouse, my daughter and I. Hopefully more games like Dungeon Defenders come in the future or something such as Dead Space, Mass Effect, Dead or Alive, Crysis games come free in the future. So far I am happy to see we get something instead of nothing and I am awaiting the day we get the awesome update and EU eats a **** update hehe.

Good day sir.

I have the Playstation Vita and live in Norway. I have also purchased Wipeout seperately with the 3D mode, I believe this is the 2048 edition.

On the PS Vita I cannot downlod this at all, I must purchase it for 269 NOK. It is also not listed under instant game pack. so what do I do? I can dowload all the Wipout 2048 HD packs however theese do not install as they seem to be addons for the original 2048 version of Wipeout…

Is it only me or are more people having this annoying problem?

More missing things while at it, after Vita crashed and I reinstalled it – several tables from Zen Pinball 2 are missing as downloads so I cannot get them back. One of the tables became available last week, but still

And where is the youtube app? Where is the Netflix app? Butr really, where is Wipeout 2048?

Are we gonna be able to buy PS Plus from our PS Vita

+ mindsignals on December 15th, 2012 at 10:12 am said:

Two questions:
1. If you download a game in the PS Plus Vita collection and that game is subsequently rotated out, will you still be able to play the game or do you lose access to it when the game is rotated?

2. If you own the game on cartridge and it becomes part of the PS Plus Vita collection (such as with Uncharted and Wipeout), can you download it for convenience and resume your existing save game (or is it seen as a different game installation, requiring you to restart on the downloaded copy/version)?
