I already have most of the games I want in this list but the best part about PSn+ heck the only part that really matters as far as I’m concerned are the discounts. Regularly you guys have killer discounts and I love PSN+ for that. This week the discounts are on point. I’m just pretty sure I already got Sideway on the PSN+ free (aka unlimited rental).

My only request from the service is a way to remove the free(aka unlimited rental) games. Because my sub of Sideway will expire with my PSN+ subscription. I would totally throw down $2.50 to permanently own the game I’m renting.

How about getting ps one classics Grand Theft Auto 1&2 in the store? Free for plus members of course.

Gezz guys, if your upset about geting Uncharted Golden abyss,Gravty rush, Wipeout 2048. Jet set radio, Final fantash TWoL, and Mutant Blob, & Resident Evil 5. which right there alone would cost you over $50. then nothing wil make you happy. Well maybe you want RE6 and Borderlands2 and Black ops2? yeah because thats what we thought we were geting when we signed up For plus! riiiiggghhht? You all need to come down -_- You should know from Now that the 1st Week of each month is where the bes Free game comes out, this week is week 4 of november. you should know by now that week 4 for Plus is the discount week -_-

You should have had Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. You’re likely the only retailer that didn’t. Steam, once again, ate your lunch and continues to do so today.

Gotta say i was very pleased with the content this month for Plus especially with the Vita Plus and i am looking forward to what December holds for Plus

Hi Ramdomwolf!,

So we can´t buy discounted games that we already got with plus?

Wowww! :(

In that case i won´t get free games that i would like to own…but that shouldn´t be the way of this service.

Do you know if any of the DLC for Pinball Arcade is due to be discounted too on tomorrow’s update?


+ megamixer on November 26th, 2012 at 12:45 pm said:

That’s how it’s worked from Day 1 of PS+. Once your subscription runs out (assuming you don’t auto-renew) you can purchase games you got for ‘free’ with the +.

Guys, seriously? And when I say “guys”, I mean the commenters.

It’s the last week of the month. That’s usually what I call the “Crap Week”, because that has a lot of the stuff that very few people are interested in. But that’s not a bad thing! I mean, we have a bunch of older games that people enjoyed at a discount. Sure, when OTHER certain online services do this, everyone’s like “Shut up and take my money!” but when Sony does it’s like “RUINED FOREVER” here. And then the majority of you will be happy again during the first couple weeks because we get our free games.

I think we’re all just complaining for nothing. XD I haven’t had any complaints about Plus this year and I definitely intend to renew. So cut these guys some slack, not everything they offer is going to be a winner.


+ mcbuttz78 on November 26th, 2012 at 12:53 pm said:

@153 because eu blog is different than the usa blog not all of them are going to offer the same thing, different teams, different plans, different ambitions for the gamers likes.

in usa gamers like thing that make the hardware better more than games they do love game dont get that twisted everyonje does, over ther in eu they like games more than other stuff like hardware, japan like psn mini games and software apps. canada i dont know i havent tlk to my good friend up there in a while hes to busy play ac37 skyrim .LOl

in small differnt regions, get different stuff at different times.

@158 well it doesnt work that way .its a few games id like to pick as well, but its there plan and offer to us. if you have the game then why say i dont want that game. stop wasting money and just let your plan work for you .

If came down ps plau s free and the a few weeks later is 2.50$ the one who dont ahve or want psn plus deserve a discount too and crack at the game as well. i think its a fair shake.

if game is not up your alley..ok no harm or foul, if you have the game already then theyre on the right track with good taste.:)

as someone who will never buy a vita, I picked dungeon defenders free, I never heard of the game but I love it.
I don’t like horror games, but RE5 gold is awesome for us as well, but I will probably never play it.

the vita deals are awesome, dear sony, let me play vita games on my ps3 without a vita, some vita games I would even consider buying for ps3, I really wish it was possible to play vita games from ps3, because I will probably never buy a vita, too much money and I have to save for the eventual next console cycle.

in order of awesome : 1 vita games free,2 RE5 gold, 3dungeon defenders
in order I like 1dungeon defenders, 2RE5 gold, 3 vita games free

hey morgan, just a friendly suggestion; i would like to see a discount on ‘I Am Alive’. its been 15 bucks for awhile now, seems like a good time for a nice plus discount, wouldnt u agree? btw i really appreciate that you take the time to read the comments and actually reply to ppl past the 1st page, that shows youre listening!

@ Megamixer

Thank you for the answer.

They should let people buy a game whenever they want.


+ darknightgotham on November 26th, 2012 at 1:16 pm said:

Any word on when they will fix the Alice: Madness Returns pricing issue? The ultimate deals have been heavily advertised and the store even shows you in big bold yellow letter how the PS+ price is $15.99 but when you are going to actually buy it it tries to charge you $19.99. I hope this is fixed soon, I don’t want to miss out on this deal and c’mon, it even says ON THE STORE that the price is $15.99, and still tries to charge you $19.99. I understand many of us want to get this game and the issue has even been admitted on the PS Support forums ( ) , so any word on a timeframe? I hope it is fixed before tomorrow, as tomorrow I will arrive late and the store will probably have updated by then. =(

    The price should be fixed. We are reviewing how to take care of those Plus users who may have already purchased it at the wrong price. So if you’ve been holding off on the purchase, you should be able to buy it at the correct price.


+ darknightgotham on November 26th, 2012 at 1:23 pm said:

As a follow up to my most recent post, I must add that the pricing issue on Alice: Madness Returns seems to have been fixed now! Thanks!


+ BigDaddyEarl71 on November 26th, 2012 at 1:25 pm said:

Are we going to ever see PSOne (maybe even PS2 games) and themes in PS+ offers again?

While I’m here, I think it would be nice to have a permanent 30% to 40% discount on ALL PSOne and PS2 games for Plus members. I’m sure you would make a lot more sells that way.

Gonna have to break down and buy a Vita now. I really wanna play Uncharted. Thanks PS+, I’m a very happy customer.

    The cool thing is, it doesn’t matter whether you’re Plus or not. We value feedback from all of PSN on these items.


+ CaptnBrainslide on November 26th, 2012 at 2:10 pm said:

Just wanted to say thank you to Morgan and whoever else fixed the problem with the Alice: Madness Returns bundle. The Plus discount to $15.99 finally came back after about 5 days of being coded wrong in the store and the DLC for the original game does appear to be downloadable now, I just purchased it.. It was just under the wire for being within the limit for the get $10 if you spend $60 promo too. Just… try not to do let this sort of thing happen again, it severely frustrated me and a whole lot of people in the meanwhile, and several will still be feeling gypped.


+ PrimeroIncognito on November 26th, 2012 at 2:25 pm said:

@ Jhony_Killer

You’re right. That is a bad translation. I have no clue what you just said. Heh… :)

But you know what’s funny? You actually type in English better than some people who speak English as their first language!

So, keep practicing. You’ll get better. You have potential. :)


+ SpooNManX on November 26th, 2012 at 2:34 pm said:

@ #36 Your $60 in purchases HAVE TO HAVE BEEN between November 20th and November 26th!

“Purchase anything on PSN from November 20th through November 26th that collectively reaches or exceeds $60
and we’ll give you a $10 PSN Wallet voucher in December!
This voucher will be delivered via an XMB message on December 6th, and will need to be redeemed by January 6th, 2013.”

They only give you a 6 day window to spend $60?..
That’s $10 a day for you non-math wizards!

I personally think they should give you a month to spend $60. If you’re averaging $10 a day on PSN you might have a problem that needs to be addressed.


+ PrimeroIncognito on November 26th, 2012 at 2:43 pm said:

SpooNManX on November 26th, 2012 at 2:34 pm said: “If you’re averaging $10 a day on PSN you might have a problem that needs to be addressed.”

Or you could just buy one game, one time, for $59.99 (plus an avatar to surpass $60) and get the $10 back. Then it’s like you got the game for $49.99 which is pretty good especially if it’s a brand new Day 1 Digital game…

Glad to see you found out about the promotion though… :)

Although I must say, Black Friday deals at retail stores definitely outshined the PSN deals, even though the PSN deals were quite good. I picked up the Most Wanted Limited Edition for $29.99 brand new, and I’m loving it so far.

May get Bejeweled now that it’s only $2.50 and a couple others.
But this month hasn’t been all that great for me (owned 2 of the free games already [RE and Defender] and the other freebie wasn’t really my type of game [it was okay!])

Crossing my fingers for a better month next month!

Keep up the good work Sony otherwise!

– No, no, I mean NEXT week is gonna be amazing.

– Some people like this game, but next week you are gonna see!
*pff, no one expected nothing decent anymore, but anyway… it got even worse*

– Next month, my dear friends, I swear for my mom, you’ll see. We will get much better and be like only 70% worse than EU PSN+! You’ll see. We will raise our status to “kind of crap”.

haha No one believes it anymore.

Next june/july, one year from the instant game collection start, you’ll see, Morgan, lots of us helping Sony to keep at the present “junk” status and not renewing subscriptions. And you’ll have deserved it with the lack of honesty and compromise with your ex-fans.

What is done here is paid here.

I know it’s not related to this post but I just bought CoD Vita Bundle and I was shocked to see that the game box wasn’t even included in the package (there is only the game). Is there anyway I could get the box with the boxart because I’m a collector and I would love to have it sitting on my shelf (besides, it would be useful to store the game when it’s not in my Vita)

Thank you for your answer.


+ Squiggle55 on November 26th, 2012 at 3:11 pm said:

Thank you for these sales! Despite all of the complaints this actually makes me quite happy! I was never quite willing to buy Peggle for $10, but for $2.50 that is an easy decision. Are there differences in the two versions? I might just buy both if there are differences. Also, if you didn’t get it for free with Plus, Swords & Soldiers is a great game for people who love the tower defense genre. Very fun game.

And Morgan, since I know you are often helpful in such things, could you pass along to the music unlimited people that a great feature would be the ability to shuffle songs in a specific playlist you built. I know you can edit the order one song at a time but shuffle would obviously be far more useful.

And, someone correct me if I’m wrong, but is it impossible for music unlimited to adapt your specific tastes within a preloaded station, such as “the 90s”? I’d like to occasionally use the preloaded stations, but it doesn’t seem to be getting any smarter at choosing what songs I would want to hear — so I’m starting to think that only the stations you build yourself actually adapt to your tastes. Is that true?

I agree. Some great deals this BF and CM!

I picked up Little Big Karting brand new for $15! This was from Target ($25 – $10 off coupon).
It’s hard to be excited about PSN deals when you get steals like this.

I also dove into the world of Vita. It took a $179 Assassin’s Creed III bundle + PlayStation All*Stars, and
3 free months of PSN Plus. That that + the new Vita additions to Plus made me feel it’s time. :)

Here’s my question. Can I stack those 3 months on top of the 2 years I bought or will that mess anything up?
I also have a 4th month with the Journey Collection I bought.

go to

from there click on ps+ and it’ll display your start date, expiration date, renewal date, and whether or not it’s in auto renew.

hope this helps!

Hi Morgan! (^_^)v

Long-time reader first-time poster. I’ve been involved heavily with the Xbox 360 here in Canada (helped develop the new dashboard, kinect, marketplace layout). I was doing it pro-bono for free flights to Seattle and games. I haven’t kept up with them as I don’t have that much free time anymore. I also recently bought a Wii U deluxe.

I just wanted to give you a synopsis of where I’m coming from (not an Xbox fanboy or anything fanboy).

My constructive feedback: How about getting newer titles under contract for shorter amounts of time? For example: Max Payne 3 can only be leased for 1 month. After that, plus members can have an option to purchase the game at a dicounted price. It would make multi-console gamers like myself play my PS3 more often.

It’s hard for me to give some more info as I don’t know how the whole Plus program works. Thanks go out to the team for their efforts but I hope someone reads this post.I’m in Canada and close to the main office. I’m not sure if Sony has a program like how Xbox does (to get community members inputing on future consoles/products/services). But if you do, feel free to contact me.

Best of luck and hopefully December blows me out of the water! \(^0^)/


+ lisatsunami on November 26th, 2012 at 4:27 pm said:

I love the weekly Plus & store updates posts because then I have funny things to read during down time @ work. I can always count on Primero & Blakseed shaking their heads @ all the whiners.

I voted for the Vita IGC which was too amazing as it now sets up a greater avalanche of weekly complaints because future offerings can’t measure up to that, at least not weekly. I love the Cloud saves for Vita. I not only backed up all my game saves but used it to transfer a save to my second Vita so I can continue the same game. Very convenient.

Hello Morgan. I’d like to ask you about the Spend $60 or more get $10 back offer. Last week, Kristine said: “Purchase anything on PSN from November 20th through November 26th that collectively reaches or exceeds $60, including our new Ultimate Editions, and we’ll give you a $10 PSN Wallet voucher in December!”. But on the PS Store there is a small advertisement stating that the offer is valid through November 20-27 (, so I’d like to know when does the offer really ends.
