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.

You guys know if we’ll need to check for updates (PS Store screen) or if it’ll just pop-up as any other alert. Or even if we’ll need to start the PS Store app to update it?

I’m going crazy here! Considering the download time, I’ll probably play the games tomorrow night, PSN is really slow today. I get that it’s being crazily accessed today, but I believe that those so-much-discussed-by-the-media update fees Sony’s charging the developers/studios should pay for better servers and connection speed for PSN. Right?

I don’t see that here, I’m actually copying my stuff to online storage, but no subscribe option, it’s actually like I’m subscribed already (and I was, I subscribed through the PS3 a few days ago).

Took me 10 minutes to download Gravity Rush, and now 17 minutes estimated for Uncharted.. guess if your internet speed is fine, you shouldn’t run into issues about downloads being slow.

Someone already said, just go to the games. I can see it under “Featured” or “New Releases”, Playstation Plus options and the games listed as free ;)

Are you using the European PSN?

Try this:
- Close the PS Stora App
- Start the “Content Manager” app and see if “Online Storage” is available.
– If not, sorry.
– If so, try transferring your saves to the cloud
- Start the PS Store ans see if PS Plus stuff are now available.

EU Ps+ isn’t up yet to my belief, and you’re getting different games from what is posted here.. well 4 games with Chronovolt instead of Wipeout.

Yes it’s out there now! At least in the US Store, just go to the PSN Store inside the PS Vita, and touch the tab called New Releases; there will be a new option called “Playstation Plus”, enter in that option. You will now see a list of the new free games of PS+ for PS Vita.

Well, I’m getting lame 50kb/s here. And that’s on the PS3, wired to the router. My internet is pretty normal for everything else. 654 min to download Gravity Rush (1453 MB). 10mbit internet here…

Is there anything I can do? I actually noticed PSn slow a few days ago. Change DNS? Something like that would make it work faster?

+ Tsupi_Az on November 20th, 2012 at 4:11 pm said:

@425
I had the same problem with Sonic 1 and Sonic 2.
What I did was exit the store and went into my account management and went into Download list and it downloaded them right away that way.
Now I am just waiting on Dungeon Defender to finish downloading and then for Walking dead Ep.5 to show up.

+ marciomatielo on November 20th, 2012 at 4:14 pm said:

The new PS3 store on the PS3 is really awesome. They should have used that layout on the PS Vita as well.

When I do a Internet Connection Test, the Vita says

TEST 1
– - – - – - – - -
NAT: Type 2
Connection Speed (Download): 1.2 Mbps
Connection Speed (Upload): 214 Kbps

TEST 2
– - – - – - – - -
NAT: Type 2
Connection Speed (Download): 144.5 Kbps
Connection Speed (Upload): 221 Kbps

I guess it’s really inconsistent here. But again, it’s just PSN ;(

You guys are the master, what ports should I open on my router so PSN should work properly. I never set it, to be honest. Just found out checking my router.

Yeah this fantastic. Sometimes I feel remorse about my Xbox Live subscription. I haven’t once felt that way with Plus. In fact every month I feel even more satisfied in my choice to have a plus subscription. Even one month there is a free or discounted game I don’t want – I know there is someone out there who is probably pumped on it – and that is a cool thing.


434

+ ch8882002usnavy on November 20th, 2012 at 4:44 pm said:

I just spoke with someone at Playstation Support and they told me that since I already owned 2 from the last time Plus offered it I would not be able to download this pack and would not be able to get Sonic 1 without paying full price for it. Why is PSN set up like that? It is pretty much a screw you to early adopters of plus and to people that have previously downloaded 1 of the games.


435

+ Tsupi_Az on November 20th, 2012 at 4:53 pm said:

@432
When I went into the download list in account management they were not just one download I had to download 1 at a time, I recommend checking in there just to be sure I dont trust anything customer service says on the phone

So much for free games, hum? Hope they fix it somehow.

Thanks!
