January 15th PlayStation Plus Update

Darksiders (PS3)

Free for PS Plus members

Take control of War, one of the fabled Horseman of the Apocalypse, and rain down destruction with a combination of brutal attacks and supernatural abilities. Darksiders’ true appeal however isn’t just in its visceral action. With an emphasis on open world traversal and mind-bending dungeons to explore, Darksiders delivers a true adventure, supported by the amazing art styling of comic book art genius Joe Madureira.

PlayStation Plus Update 1-15-2013

Stardrone Extreme

50% off for PS Plus members (Original price: $3.99; PS Plus Price: $2.00)

Don’t miss out on this great deal for the PS Vita charmer Stardrone Extreme. Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself out of a cannon into outer space. Your spaceship stays in motion from this point on, and it’s your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate its flight path. While tethered to a beacon, you’ll swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic brings together elements of shoot ‘em up, pinball, collecting objects; all in one unique game.

One other note; some of you noticed that inFAMOUS 2 left PlayStation Plus as a free game last week. This was an error and it will be back in the Instant Game Collection on the 1/15 PlayStation Store Update.

@pers1m0ny Up until last week, the poll results were public, and half of the comments in those blog posts would just say, “Well the poll says this, or the poll says that.” So I guess morgan would rather have (a majority of) the comments be focused on something other than what “the polls say”

Can you guys please tell sony that us Ps vita owners would like way more Remote-play & cross controller content. Or at the least tell Sony to make cross-controller automatically compatible with the entire Ps3 so we can basically use the Vita as a ps3 controller and if anything replace our ps3 controllers.Thats what most of us want to do atleast and its kind of nerve wrecking waiting for individuel developers to come up with ideas for cross-controller schemes or remote-play patches…

@hellsflamecharge
‘If you’re one of the people who say they can barely afford the 50 bucks a year, than maybe you shouldn’t be spending time playing video games?’

What nonsense are you talking? You are saying a student who paid a lot of money for a tuition and cant afford 50 bucks for this service or a guy paying mortgage and doesn’t want to afford 50 bucks for this service should not play video games? Or a kid who’s parent doesnt want to pay 50 bucks for the service every year should not play video games?

Well I can’t say I voted b/c in a sense it’s kind of a 2-way response for me for one I already have StarDrome (I’ve had for a few months now) and, atm, I’m not sure how I feel about Darksiders yet (maybe I’ll download it; maybe not)–but it seems kinda interesting.

But I will say at least the week is far more better than what it has been for Plus update. I only lament that there wasn’t something for the Vita this week (you guys/gals *really* need to put more emphasis on that as the weeks and months go by).

More than half? Really. You actually counted them?

Seriously though, I understand what you mean. And I understand Morgan’s reasoning as well.
That doesn’t change my opinion that it is a little bit of a lame thing to do to conduct a poll then hide the results.

The way I see it, you milk the community for some information, the very least you can do in return is let everybody in on the result.

If ‘this poll is private’ going to be the way. I will exercise the only means I have of protesting:
– no more votes from me
– at least one comment / question about the poll being private

Anyhow, I think I’ve made enough posts about this now.

No more comments about this from me on this weeks blog post.

A friend has been bugging me to play this game forever… keeps telling me to just buy it but I just don’t have the money to be buying games I’m not so sure about. Yes, I’ve heard it’s amazing but I don’t like spending my money on a game I’m not absolutely certain I will enjoy and want to own. Anyway — very glad to see it available on PS+ so that I can give it a go!

Hey Morgan, Just thought of something… First off the PS+ program is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. I love it, so keep up the great work! When you break it down honestly, If we get one good month, We’re already seeing value. I’ve already done that easily with the Vita offerings. But on to my question!

Do you think the PS+ team would consider a “Second chance” offer or promotion? For example “This month download 5 games you missed from the back catalog of games that were offered?” Or maybe as an incentive to subscribe or renew? Like “Subscribe or Renew to PS+ and download 5 games of your choice from the back catalog.”

I think it’ll add quite a bit of value to the program, plus it helps late adpoters somewhat catch up on what they missed.

Thanks!!!!


515

+ sab_krit on January 16th, 2013 at 7:06 am said:

@Oblivieon Why just 5? Why not all the US + IGC and EU + IGC from the back catalog? (Sarcasm)

@pers1m0ny So What really triggered u to comment abt the poll in the first place, if you are going to protest by not voting? Seems like you dont care abt the polls for the real purpose of it.

Not impressed with Darksiders, I didn’t even finish the one hour full game trial, so i wont even be downloading it.
I was really hoping for something good like Arkham city, but I still have to beat infamous 2(good game),and ratchet all 4 one(good game).
So hopefully something really impressive will follow


523

+ EZaxess on January 16th, 2013 at 1:05 pm said:

I may not be happy once again, after more than 3-4 months of deception with PS+ choices. Saying that Darksiders is just garbage I say you’re just cynical because the game is actually good. Sure it may not fall into your tastes nor does it for mine but dude, you should see life on a more positive level because that attitude will only hurt your own self. I’m sorry if you can’t open your eyes wide enough to notice that.


524

+ EZaxess on January 16th, 2013 at 1:14 pm said:

Also, I may not agree with the polls being set to private ONCE they’ve been public to begin with… I completely agree with them being private. They aren’t there to be the matter of discussion but just to serve as data for the company, but at the same time they should’ve been private to begin with because now, as sad as it sounds they are more of a topic of controversy. Poop happens, and now we deal with it. Such is life. People who spend their time saying ‘I won’t subscribe again’ yet subscribe again, stop wasting your time. If you truly believe what you say you would just do it, and not come back every week saying the same thing over and over again. Do it, shut up and move on. Or don’t do it and give constructive criticism instead.

I, myself am dissatisfied with PS+ but I assume my actions, and know I will be a member for a while and hope for the service to offer something I appreciate. I am still a subscriber and I am patient. I read these blogs every now and then during the week and most of the members here are parrots with no real purpose, wake up and be someone, instead of something.

One last thing, to people saying that Morgan don’t answer to negative comments, he actually does. I haven’t been happy for a while and he replied to every comment I left. The reason he may not be replying it’s because the content is either useless, passive aggressive or perhaps just isn’t something reasonable. He’s a blogger and a good one at it, he’s not picking and planning PS+. He’s the messenger. Cheers.

Can you give me the link where he replied to your negative comment? Cuz I have never seen any!!!

“I, myself am dissatisfied with PS+ but I assume my actions, and know I will be a member for a while and hope for the service to offer something I appreciate. I am still a subscriber and I am patient.”
Good for you, but not everyone want to be patient, So shut up when ppl actually want to know y the sevice is not offering something they appreciate instead of asking the complainers to shut up (its not ur job to ask the complainers t onot complain for which they paid for)!

AND your last two comments are called TROLLING!!! stop strolling if u want to be of any use to the community.

CHEERS!!!!

@sab_krit By telling EZaxess to shut up about telling others to shut up, aren’t you guilty of the exact same thing you’re accusing him of? If you want people to respect your right to complain about something, you should respect their right to complain about others’ complaining, it makes the world (or at least this blog) a much more tolerable place.

@sab_krit: I have no clue why you are taking it so personal, my message was addressed to some people being outright rude and entitled children. What I meant to display is that ‘do something about it or word it in a way that SONY would actually listen, and not just walk through’. Albeit you don’t impress me, I’ve seen you walk around these blogs just taking everything personal.

But again I’ve made that mistake as well, reading what I wrote my last comment was no better than anyone else being rude to each other so for that, I wish to take it back. Sorry if I offended anybody, except for sap_kid.
