Not that happy to see BF3 as a free plus game in my eyes this is a game that is already in 9 out of 10 peoples homes so I wouldn’t sell the disc to than lose 12 GB of HDD space. The other 2 games this month are mediocre maybe oddworld might be interesting but the demo for Jet Set is only ok. I really wish we could of had the komplete edition for mortal kombat on sale that way we would get the bonus characters right ?

There should be a credit program for when you buy a game at the regular price… then after x amount of days that same game goes FREE or gets a major discount… it’s really frustrating paying the regular price on somehting that’s then free after less than 15 days!

Anyway.. always LOVE the PS plus content, either free stuff or discounted. can’t go wrong with them!

Awesome BF3 is free for Ps plus, but I got a problem with plus, do I need a credit card to use it? even if I had money on my account.

+ SharinganSakura on July 5th, 2013 at 11:33 am said:

Awesome update!

Any chance we could get Street Fighter x Tekken soon? With the latest update plus being offered on Plus, could really breathe some new life back into the online scene.

And maybe Crysis 3, SoulCalibur IV, & Skullgirls for PSN?

+ SharinganSakura on July 5th, 2013 at 11:42 am said:

Love to see fighting games getting some spotlight, MK for 5 bucks is really awesome. I’m sure a lot of people will be getting it. I’d get it myself, but I’m debating on waiting for the Skullgirls DLC (Squigly). I’d rather it be the Komplete Edition of MK9 for a few more bucks, also.

Like I said, Cry3, SCIV, Skullgirls soon would be nice, maybe TTT2 if you can manage. I heard the EU got DOA5 but we don’t have it yet, so that would be nice too. And FFXIII-2 would be great as well.

Nice freebies this month, I’m sure I’ll grab everything I own the hardware to play. BF3 DLC being on sale would have been nice though. In the future some Oddworld: Strangers Wrath would be great, or Burnout Paradise: Ultimate Box (bought it on the xbox way back when ps3 was still a bit to expensive for my wallet) I suppose NFS: Most Wanted would be okay instead, seeing as there may be a bigger online scene this long after release.

I’ve been a plus member since November of 2010, and I’ve been feeling pretty burnt lately, especially on the vita side. It seems like we haven’t been given any big titles recently, whereas EU has Unit 13 now. EU had KoR:A and Rayman Origins too :/

This months line up is pretty awesome! I haven’t played JetSet since the dreamcast. Did you ever figure out the dates of the other releases?

+ hazelcabug on July 8th, 2013 at 10:39 pm said:

In eu psn plus, from November 2012 till present, they are giving 2 free vita games a month for psn plus vita users. But here in NA psn plus, only 1 ps vita and 1 junk psp games? I bought vita to play vita games, I already dump my old psp because I had enough of playing psp games but now I’m wasting my money on psp? Why can’t NA do something about what EU did? I REGRETTED EVER in joining NA psn plus!

Is this the premium version of BF3? because if it is than is it possible for me to just get the premium because I have the disc?

It would be cool that they gave us CoD Black Ops for free :) or more awesome games like europe sometimes have (Hitman and more)
