PlayStation Plus Update: Ninja Gaiden Sigma Free for Members

Morgan Haro's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

January is almost over, and we have one more Plus update for you, but first let’s reminisce on this month’s offerings, shall we? Plus member freebies included NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, Darksiders, Mega Man 9 and 10, along with Foosball 2012, and we there were some awesome deals with the 13 for ’13 discounts (last day is today). Topping it all off was access to the God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta, and the 12+3 Plus promotion where you can buy one year of Plus and get three extra months at no additional cost; which is active right now.

We’re sending January off by welcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PS Vita, free for Plus members! There are also some amazing PSN gems at fantastic prices that you may have missed. Read on and enjoy the update, which takes effect when the PlayStation Store updates on January 29th.

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita to purchase, or click here to get instant access via the Sony Entertainment Network online store.

January 29th PlayStation Plus Update

Experience a new way to play one of the finest editions of Ninja Gaiden Sigma with motion & touch controls, tons of content, and new challenges to test even the toughest ninja. Be warned though, Ninja Gaiden is a tough game, but the feeling of mastering the combat and handling your foes is second to none.
Madden 13 Sale (PS3 and PS Vita)

30% off for PS Plus members

With the Super Bowl right around the corner (go Niners!), our friends at EA are happy to help everyone get ready for the big game by offering both PS3 and PS Vita versions of Madden 13 for 30% off.

Gatling Gears (PS3)

50% off for PS Plus members (Original price: $4.99; PS Plus Price: $2.50)

When the Empire begins its reign of destruction in a thirst for natural resources, it’s up to Max Brawley, a retired Gatling Gear pilot, to stop them. Together with his niece and his trusty Gatling Gear unit he must fight his way to the heart of the Empire and eliminate the destruction at its source. Grab the game that IGN.com called “a joy to play”, at a steal of a price.
Section 8: Prejudice (PS3)

50% off for PS Plus members (Original price: $9.99; PS Plus Price: $5.00)

Pick up this sci-fi first person shooter with dynamic combat at an amazing price. In Section 8: Prejudice, every decision drastically impacts the battlefield.

    Thanks, glad you’re enjoying the update! Tough to pass up a number of those games at those prices

    If you haven’t played the PS3 games that are discounted this week like Gatling Gears, greed Corp, or Section 8, they’re certainly worth checking out at those prices. $5 footlong; or awesome game? lol

joefranco85 said:

January 28th, 10:21 am

wow an excellent gift for vita owners, like me XD
would be great if sony give us a selection of games like 13 for 13 like ps3

YogiYahooeys said:

January 28th, 10:21 am

No new PS3 game this week? Sure would have been nice if NGS had been offered for both Vita *and* PS3, seeing as the game is available on both platforms.

snakeman07 said:

January 28th, 10:22 am

Nice! Finally get to try out a NG game :)

TinCannEd said:

January 28th, 10:22 am

Wow, I missed that is was for Vita, as well Deekman. Nice week for PS+, also there is the Get a year of PS+, Get 3 Months extra free (Until March 3). Good for me since mine expires on Feb 9.

January 28th, 10:22 am

Not a huge fan of the genre, still haven’t finished Dynasty Warriors from launch. Nevertheless going to try it out, nice to see some Vita titles. Thanks!

January 28th, 10:22 am

I’m happy with Ninja Gaiden for Vita!

ZaGe-zAiKaNo said:

January 28th, 10:23 am

Nice! more Vita love.

@Morgan: Have you guys ever considered giving the Skype app an IM feature? I honestly feel like its lacking it & it’s odd that smaller devices such as phones have IM.

Thanks for the update!

luiz0XD said:

January 28th, 10:23 am

Nice, played the 2nd one on my PS3 and now i finally get to play the first one >.< thnx you guys at PS, need to renew my pro membership and PS plus soon TT.TT

Superstone said:

January 28th, 10:23 am

Another good update. I agree with @12. It would be nice to see free or reduced PSP games. More PSP games as digital too!!

CZOOM01 said:

January 28th, 10:23 am

I am greatful. Had this for the original Xbox, heard this version is better, so thats good news.

Would have liked sleeping dogs or maybe even Heavenly Sword, but this is a good game, So I will take it. Thank you Morgan and PlayStation Plus Team.

DiegoHuXO said:

January 28th, 10:24 am

So, Vita gets Ninga Gaiden Sigma and we PS3 owners, pay for nothing….

And our dear friend EU gets Sleeping Dog…

Does that seen fare to any of you?

ps_n_blog_ac said:

January 28th, 10:24 am

@37

those games won’t appear on PS+ this year i believe because they were on sale awhile ago during the winter sale i think

CZOOM01 said:

January 28th, 10:25 am

Oh wait WTF, its Vita only??? Oh my bad, thought this was the PS3 version? Why not give the PS3 version also?

If not, not a very good plus update as I don’t have a vita and most don’t right now.

Darewind said:

January 28th, 10:25 am

Seems like a good Plus release for all 200 of the north american PS Vita owners.I hope February has some good releases/sales for the rest of us.

KidCommando said:

January 28th, 10:25 am

At first I was like, oh ok, Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I already have that for my PS3….then I saw it was for the Vita! YES PLEASE!!

I swear, the value of Plus for ME is unbeatable and I will always have a membership. In fact, I’m gonna be stacking 15 more months on later today.

also, Section 8: Prejudice at $5.00 is a steal. One of my favorites as my avatar suggests.

krimoz said:

January 28th, 10:25 am

Sleeping Dogs next week then. (Please).

Superstone said:

January 28th, 10:26 am

How about discounts on movies? I would buy more movies but the prices are a little steep and the service isn’t the best(only 1 download on one console)

Greyline108 said:

January 28th, 10:26 am

I’d been hoping that NGS+ would be a free release at some point. Glad to see that wish granted. I’m definitely excited for this update.

lisatsunami said:

January 28th, 10:26 am

Did not expect Ninja Gaiden Sigma for Vita. Will nab that, thanks!

JKar275 said:

January 28th, 10:26 am

I’d like to see PS Plus members get discounts in the upcoming MMO shooter Defiance’s in-game store. We should also be getting discounts for any paid DLC for Defiance too.

Anddo said:

January 28th, 10:27 am

Already own Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus.. None of those other titles interest me. EU wins again :/

onuosfan said:

January 28th, 10:27 am

So EU gets Sleeping Dogs and we get this?

Screwed again, thank you very much.

RulitoCR said:

January 28th, 10:27 am

Well nothing for me this week…. What about more great games for PS3 or day 1 discount!?

Kikowz said:

January 28th, 10:27 am

Hi, Morgan. :)

Can you say if we’ll have Sleeping Dogs free for PS+ like Europe?

Thanks

IconikBlo0dM0n3y said:

January 28th, 10:28 am

Shame when you get to the point where you don’t want to look at what Europe gets cause you know it’s going to blow away what we get. With that being said, I have PS Plus paid for until this June, if this service doesn’t pick up im abandoning ship.

StingrayX said:

January 28th, 10:28 am

Sweet! Haven’t played any of the Ninja Gaiden games =D

DonkeyKongKilla said:

January 28th, 10:28 am

@DiegoHuXO – Again, we don’t even know what is coming in Feb yet. They aren’t getting it tomorrow. They’re getting Sleeping Dogs in a week. Compare the last update for Jan in EU to NA not the last update in Jan in NA to first update in Feb for Eu.

Is that really a fair comparison to you?

swisstylez said:

January 28th, 10:29 am

Woo finally since bioshock 2 there hasn’t been a nice update like these one (I know GOW too but that was beta) I think it’s time to remove the dust out of my Vita and put it to charge.

head20 said:

January 28th, 10:29 am

PLEASE O PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHEN WILL WE GET A 64 GB MEMORY CARD FOR THE VITA !!!!!!!!!!!! A MUST NEEDED ITEM SINCE VITA HAS JOINED THE PLUS TEAM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sab_krit said:

January 28th, 10:30 am

@DonkeyKongKilla But EU got Vanquish and Batman AC for december 2012 when we got only Bioshock 2. :D

    don’t forget Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition if you’re tracking PS3 Full Games.

remanutd5 said:

January 28th, 10:30 am

at 68 i agree, how about movies discount sony? i’d surely rent more movies on weekends if i get discounts lol

Ghostwize said:

January 28th, 10:31 am

I think most folks would be disappointed if Puppy Naps was free. Anyone who wanted to really play it would have already supported the developers and what have you buy buying the game. It’s a good game. Pretty lackluster after you beat it though and it is pretty short.

I would love to see something like Amalur in or Feb update. Or perhaps some Okami HD. Or perhaps Dishonored. That would really shut some folks up while enraging a whole other set of over entitled cry-baby buntings(Ni No Kuni reference!) :P :D

UncannySilk said:

January 28th, 10:31 am

Hooray for Vita owners. They need something new to play since the Vita is so stagnant on anything interesting to play other than Persona 4: The Golden.

I’m just gonna wait and play this HIGH QUALITY FOOSBALL, MAN.

/sarcasm

Red-5x said:

January 28th, 10:31 am

Hi:
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus… for Plus Users and FOR FREE!
I believe this is good news. I had Ninja Gaiden Sigma for PS3 and now I will be able to enjoy this game on the road or waiting on the Movies…

Black_Dynamite19 said:

If waiting for the beginning of the month to get completely new stuff, like the EU does it, gets me better games…by all means do it. They are getting Sleeping Dogs…just another tittle that the NA customers wish was part of their IGC. Such a shame that there is such a disparity as of late between the NA and EU region. I truly hope this changes. I do not feel entitled to get AAA games every week/month, but it would be nice to get closer to the quality of games that the EU region has been receiving. Other than that…the 13 for 13 sale is great. I just hope, that in the future, there is a smaller amount of disparity between the EU and NA when it comes to quality of games provided by the PS+ service…

NickMulder said:

January 28th, 10:31 am

Wish The Madden sale was 50% off for Plus members and 30% for non-Plus members lol but oh well :p

StingrayX said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

Movie discounts would be hard to do, since that’s a whole other industry.

yowzerz said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

Thanks for giving us Ninja Gaiden for Vita. I already own this game but for folks who have not tried it out yet, you’re in luck. Though a ‘port’, this game is one of the best games on the system in my opinion. I would not mind having the digital copy, and I cannot wait for its sequel next month. Quite impressive game play for a handheld system. Any word on Killzone Mercenary, Dragon’s Crown, Soul Sacrifice, Ratchet and Clank FF, release dates? Love my Vita and am getting anxious for more games thats all…can’t wait for Sigma 2 and Sly Cooper next month!

alx681 said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

nothing for me this week. not into ninja gaiden.. and none of the games on sale tickle my fancy. (already got gaitling gears)
really hoping we will get sleeping dogs at some point in february.

dsigns209 said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

Yes Ninja Gaiden!

ps_n_blog_ac said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

@68
i’ve been stating that for awhile but no reply or anything (along with a special external hard drive for digital PS movies and TV shows)

when i called costumer service they said it’s because of copy rights or something like that…?

Xx432 said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

bad update, was hoping for something better like sleeping dogs..

NXemo said:

January 28th, 10:32 am

Ninja Gaiden is a great game, too bad that you guys are only giving the vita version!, I would like to see more PS3 free FULL GAMES and not free psn games, EUROPEAN is giving sleeping dogs, I dont like this game, but please, bring more ps3 FULL games and less psn games for us! pleaseee

jayrabbit said:

January 28th, 10:33 am

Morgan please tell me your looking into working with eastasiasoft to get rainbow moon on the instant game collection, i have been on their forums and they want to work with you guys.

peruhandcrafts said:

January 28th, 10:33 am

Wow, so Europe gets Sleeping Dogs for PS3 and Lumines for Vita and we get this? Don’t take me wrong, these are ok, but if you compare them to what Europe gets….

smoothboarder540 said:

January 28th, 10:33 am

You guys need to understand. EU will not be getting Sleeping Dogs until next week. US content for February hasn’t been announced yet. But be warned now, it’s not going to be a game released within the last year. So don’t expect something like Sleeping Dogs.

sab_krit said:

January 28th, 10:34 am

Yeah give us a hint on what ps3 retail game we might get as feb content.
