PlayStation Plus: Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Free for Members

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

This week PlayStation Plus continues the piping hot delivery of updates to keep you warm this December. Last week, you took the plunge into the underwater world of Rapture with BioShock 2 joining the Instant Game Collection. This week, you’ll be busting out your shoryukens and controlling gravity with two great games: Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Rochard!

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita or click here to get access.

December 11th PlayStation Plus Update

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (PS3)

Free for Plus members

Street Fighter IV was already a bonafide hit when it ushered in a new era of 2D fighters. Take that winning formula, refine and balance one of the best fighting game engines, add four new characters (Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, and Oni), take part in new online modes and you’ve got one of the most complete fighting game packages ever. See you online; I’ll be the guy using this handy guide to my all time favorite fighting game character.
Rochard (PS3)

Free for Plus members

A PSN gem, Rochard brings fantastic puzzle-platforming in the form of taking control of astro-miner John Rochard. Though a humble premise it may be, you’ll be addicted to the gravity control mechanics of Rochard as you solve environmental puzzles and explore new ways to navigate the wonderful trappings of this galactic platformer. It’s a PSN exclusive that, if you missed, you should definitely make the time to play. You can read more on the game from the PlayStation Blog’s coverage. Please note, this title will only be available free in Plus for one week.

That’s it for this week’s update, and remember that the above updates will be in effect once the PlayStation Store updates on December 11th; usually between the times of 2:00pm – 5:00pm PST. Also, for those wondering, we do have PS Vita games on the way in December that will add to the already great library of content on PS Vita Plus. Watch for those to be announced in this space later this month.

What content do you find most compelling for this update?

Sorry But I still think the EU Plus for this month or any month at that, is much and way better than the US updates…

Well if what Morgan says is true, the feedback back to the team is a slow process so that’s a flaw in the system right there, who knows how long it takes for the actual team behind hears everything, especially sense plus is the most vocal i’ve seen on the blogs, heh there must be so much pressure on the team. If there wasn’t it’d show that they don’t actually give a damn about it and sony don’t really care to change things up a bit to make more customers satisfied.

@onard00 Many would agree with you on that one, wait what happened to the guys that was arguing the fact that the NA team brings out more of a higher discounts, hmm they have 12 days of discounts and we haven’t seen anything? maybe just maybe the NA and EU team might be switching it up a bit and bringing us higher retail games for dec? kind of doubt it though

@DonkeyKongKilla: I am not comparing PS+Eu with us. I am asking about the difference between the psn games and retail games by year. Different question altogether. Also, I don’t dislike PS+ much like all the other comments, but I do have questions. Thanks for your annoyance though. :)

WOW!!! Your kidding me Sony! You guys have been letting me down the last few months with your Playstation Plus games. Every Tuesday I am more and more disappointed and even more so every month, but I go out and redeem my Plus membership thinking “Hey they might have something good this time.” No. I’m pretty much paying $20 just to have the Plus next to my avatar. I really don’t think I’m going to renew my membership next month. I’ve spent well over a hundred dollars on my Plus memberships and gotten crap. You’d think you’d have something big this month considering it’s XMAS. One more thing why is it EU Plus has been getting the better games, Crysis 2, Batman Arkham City and Bulletstorm? If I’ve been reading the post wrong please let me know.

@Moofboy – I was talking about listing games period, its annoying.


608

@Sin_x3 – it’d be cheaper to have the plus next to your name if you buy the whole year instead of 3 months haha

Waiting for the reaction of people when they get on the store to download their free Street Fighter game and realize it’s 18 Gb.

Yes folks, a fighting game is EIGHTEEN FREAKIN’ GIGS.
I’d like to know the % of people who’ll end up saying “screw that!” and not bother downloading.
For a lot of people, thatll take a full day to download.

Another wasted slot SCEA. Fine work.

@DonkeyKongKilla: You are welcome.

@gm914 – yeah its like downloading DC universe, and they had worlds put into that game, but this? this? Is it 1080P High Def? is it so graphical or something

@DonkeyKongKilla

It’s Capcom, so probably has 35years worth of locked DLC written into the code.

Either way, hilarious.


615

+ DonkeyKongKilla on December 11th, 2012 at 9:25 am said:

@YungShep – honestly still wouldn’t be worth it, I myself not hurting on memory but even with a high connection speed it still download really slow for some odd reason and 18GB is pretty ridic. for a old arcade fighting game


616

+ DonkeyKongKilla on December 11th, 2012 at 9:26 am said:

@gm914 – honestly, its old, tired out, re used. its the same stuff as before in the last few updates, arcade fighting… its rather dumb.

+ Sin_x3 on December 11th, 2012 at 9:36 am said:

And I love how on every post they make sound all super exciting and like we are getting a great deal. We’er really not. Think about it Plus members pay $20 every 3 months or $60 a year, yeah looking at it’s not much, it’s not. But look at the games we get for free and the value of said games. Nothing shy of BS. They are making THOUSANDS just off us the people who pay for Plus and that can’t or won’t give better games? What you think you’re doing us a favor by throwing us a bone by given us a game that is years old and just about everyone paid full price for and beat it when it was new. Sony that bone has been picked clean. You guys make millions a month and thats not even counth the game systems and games so the least you can do is put out better games to the people who actually pay all this extra hard earned money on the Plus. Jeez, and pay attention to your consumers, WTH happened to “The customers always rite?”

Please update the Store earlier so I can play San Andreas NOW lol

Hope it isn’t pulled last minute like GTA3 was.


623

+ DonkeyKongKilla on December 11th, 2012 at 9:43 am said:

@Sin_x3 – yeah but how many literately just keep doing the 3 month thing over and over, might as well just play $50 for the whole year and it’ll save you 10 pretty sure their monthly subscription is more buying them for the year then just buying it for a year too, you just tried to make it seem like we pay $5 less when we pay about $15 for it about a year. hmph I’m sorry but your argument is really invalid, usually I’d agree with people about the unbalance, but this no


624

+ Sin_x3 on December 11th, 2012 at 9:44 am said:

@DonkeyKongKilla I know it’d be cheaper that way. But if I have the $60 then I’d rather buy a new game. lol.


625

+ DonkeyKongKilla on December 11th, 2012 at 9:44 am said:

@AaronSOLDIER HaHaHa yeah bet it’d be updated around 7pm-8pm est

blakseed .. Raises my hand. im using a free trial of plus right now. so im not officialy a plus member and so glade im not. only here for the Beautiful PS + Discounts.


628

+ Sin_x3 on December 11th, 2012 at 9:54 am said:

@DonkeyKongKilla it doesn’t matter if we pay every 3 months or every year. My argument remains the same. We pay out x amount of dollars and what we pay is not worth what we get. Agree with me or not. A flaw in my argument about what I pay and what is paid for the year does not change the underlined and serious issues with Plus.


629

+ Moofboy on December 11th, 2012 at 10:01 am said:

12mo in a year.
12/3 = 4
$20 for 3mo.
$20 x 4 = $80.
1yr = $50
$80 – $50 = $30 saved

That is a pretty decent savings and can buy a new game on sale…

I didn’t got any of these two games on my ps+ free games list.
I still have the same as on dec 5 when I got Bioshock 2. How to get these games?

I love the update this month. I traded my original SFIV and It was probably the worst mistake, but now I get the new updated Version :D . I was actually going to buy Rochard this week when i tried the Demo but I was surprised to see that I get it free as well. I cant wait to see what we get next week :D


632

+ Sin_x3 on December 11th, 2012 at 10:12 am said:

Not arguing over what you save on a year membership over what you save by doing it every 3 months. I do it every 3 cause to me spending $20 here and there is better then spending $60 at once. I like it this way. If I pay more this way, then I guess I just have more room to complain. lol.


633

+ YungShep on December 11th, 2012 at 10:19 am said:

honestly….im really happy. this marks the 3rd FULL GAME were getting from ps+ within the last 30 days..

yall asked for RE5 GOLD EDITION…THEY GAVE IT TO YOU..

wanted it another FULL GAME….BIOSHOCK 2

STILL NOT HAPPY….Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition..

3 full games and the bickering is non stop…. i dont care about the reviews on games..ill review it myself…

whats the issue? im a ps+ member 2 years..i took a minor hiatus but came back..and i was welcomed to 3 full games..

whats wrong??


634

+ ABNJ on December 11th, 2012 at 10:22 am said:

Great games, but I’m new to Plus and I’m confused about how these games work. I know that you lose the games when the subscription ends, but what if the game is taken off of the store, you have it downloaded, and your subscription is still active? Can you still play it? And also, if your subscription ends and you had games in your download list from IGC, when you renew it, can you get those games again?


635

+ Psikorps on December 11th, 2012 at 10:23 am said:

*note to self*
When Morgan says to look forward to next weeks PS+ update, be afraid, be very afraid.

*side note*
PS+ is supposed to offer something for everyone, not just the IGC content, but the updates themselves.

*extra note*
I personally dont care if the freebies are stuff I either already own, or are of game types I dont enjoy, as long as the discounts make up for it on other things that week, some people will be on the other side of the fence, not caring about the discounts as much as long as the freebies are good.

Sony should be working to make a very good mix of both, which has been very lackluster the last several updates.

*bonus note*
Vita was recently added to PS+, now make sure you guys do not let it fall off track…the content quality/quanity needs to be on par with the PS3′s, dont think of it as a “add-on” to PS+, as some people (several I know personally) signed up for PS+ without even owning a PS3 because they game exclusivly on Vita.

So, does this mean that there is gonna be a new retail title added every week for the month of December?

+ YungShep on December 11th, 2012 at 10:29 am said:

@627 as long as you put it in your download queue, you’ll always have it. you dont even have to download it, install it or play it, as long as you queue it up, your good. it’ll sit in your download list forever.

the games wont go away, it’ll just place a lock on it until you renew, then you can play it like you never lost the subscription.

@Yungshep: I would just really like to see at least one decent RPG in the IGC. There have been multiple FPS and Fighters, never RPGs. That is my issue and my only real complaint with PS+.

I don’t play fighters but i don’t mind trying it. I heard about rochard on steam but never got it. On another note I normally like to avoid reading the comments because there are a lot of mean/rude comments. I understand that a lot of us don’t like the current lineup and that a lot of people prefer the EU selection but I don’t think we have to be jerks to make a point.

Ahhhhh seriously
buy the plus was the best thing i done.

Dungeon Defenders last month and RE5 gold edition (i know its a little “out of date” but i love this game”), never played KOF XIII, nice game too.
I dont like SF that much, but its a nice game and a game of name.
I am aware of the games in europe plus, but c’mon, is that complain really valid? i mean, we are getting games for free! And paying like… very low.

But i have a question… or a suggestion xD
Are there any place to check future updates? or this kind of information is decided by month?
If there’s not, should have xD
