PlayStation Plus: September’s Instant Game Collection

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Aug 29, 2013 // Sr. Community Specialist

Don’t be alarmed — no, it’s not Monday. Although PlayStation Plus updates typically kick off the week, we’re trying something new by pulling back the curtain on our Instant Game Collection updates a little early.

For September, Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection is leading the charge, so you can break out your PlayStation Move Controllers (yes, regular controllers work too) and start destroying zombies. Later this month you’ll get the HD-remastered version of iconic PS2 classic ICO, one of Rockstar’s awesome portable versions of Grand Theft Auto (in this case, GTA: Liberty City Stories), Ubisoft’s loveable platformer Rayman Origins for PS Vita and the classic arcade shooter Galaga Legions DX.

Remember, these games will hit the Instant Game Collection at various times throughout the month, so check back with us every Monday morning to see all the benefits of your membership.

I think this lineup is just OK. I would love some AAA stuff like what Europe has.

I already own all of these games except Resident Evil. Glad the Vita is getting more love this time around. Great update for another month of Plus.

WOW, great line up. My GF loves zombies so we are going to have a blast with RE: HD Chronicles.
And my Vita is going to love Rayman! I’ve been wanting that game for so long!
Great job PS Team! These are amazing games to add to the games collection! Keep it up!

This is the best PS+ update for Vita since the November launch. I’ve already got Rayman Origins, but my brother gets to keep my physical copy now.

Argh! I just learned my lesson again. Almost every single time I get a game that is on sale with plus one month, it’s free the very next month. I just got Rayman last week lol! Oh well, decent month for plus, but I am sad that EU gets AC3 and we don’t, I was really looking forward to trying that game out.

Nice additions to ICG. Much better than last month.

Now compare that to EU

Good stuff. I hope you guys did something with the Video Unlimited.
It would be nice to get some discounts on movies too.

A combo : PS Plus + Music Unlimited + Video Unlimited Discounts.

ICO and Rayman are cool additions (though I already have them). Im really not big on PSP games in the Vita lineup, but at least its a good game and not another figher


25

+ MegaSlayer5 on August 29th, 2013 at 10:30 am said:

Seriously the best month in…maybe ever :o

keep up the good work Sont! Can’t wait to see what will be available for the PS4, which is pretty soon :)

    Once PS4 rolls around, I think it’s safe to say PSN will offer even more cool stuff, so the answer to your question? YES

+ T3DV0L70L1N4 on August 29th, 2013 at 10:31 am said:

Decent offering this month, and thanks for posting it way ahead of the Monday schedule. But no poll this time?

Glad to see a GTA game for free. I just wish it was GTA IV Complete Edition instead of a PSP game I already own, but I still appreciate it.

Rayman Origins was awesome, even though I rented, beat, and returned it already, I will definitely grab it and play through some of my favorite levels again.

I actually have never played Ico, so I’m looking forward to that.

And as usual, here’s my IGC wishlist:

Assassin’s Creed 3 & Liberation
God of War (all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
Grand Theft Auto (all games in the series)
Guacamelee
Hotline Miami
LA Noire Ultimate Edition
Max Payne 3
Metal Gear Rising
Metal Gear Solid HD (PS3), digital version of MGS4
Red Dead Redemption
Red Faction Guerrilla
Stealth Inc
Uncharted 1 & 2
Velocity Ultra

Also, could you please add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store?

I loved the games for plus this month but u forgotten about Jak And Daxter it’s free for plus members in Europe

Damn, well I own RE but I do like that it was for free. Galaga looks sweet and I’m excited for ICO. For sure can’t argue with Rayman, very nice ^_^


31

+ teufelhunden0311 on August 29th, 2013 at 10:32 am said:

I don’t really understand how people are saying this is one of, if not the best PS+ month. Possibly from a portable standpoint it is but I don’t play that stuff and we don’t even get a top tier PS3 game like Hitman Absolution. Which was a long and fun game.


32

+ unflushablelog on August 29th, 2013 at 10:33 am said:

You guys deliberately suckered people into buying Rayman Origins at a big discount last month knowing perfectly well you’d be offering it free this month… in Europe, it was offered free without such mind games months prior. Pretty disgusted at the moment.


33

+ cubbielovr on August 29th, 2013 at 10:33 am said:

Not that excited about this month. Rayman Origins is definitely the best option, but I was really hoping for a stronger AAA PS3 title. How about Castlevania: LoS, Prince of Persia, or AC3?


34

+ Shinra_Soldier7 on August 29th, 2013 at 10:33 am said:

I love the early update. Possibly having the month overview on the Friday before the first week but then having the weekly showings still on Tuesday would be cool in my opinion.

Anyways I wanted to know if the ICO HD is just that or if it is supposed to come with Shadow of the Colossus like EU got a few monthes ago. I would like to try it as well.

@28 can you stop begging for games every week, you are embarrassing the community

+ Squiggle55 on August 29th, 2013 at 10:33 am said:

I love this month! It’s very rare that the entire lineup consists of games I don’t own, and all games I see myself getting enjoyment out of. Really solid month.


37

+ ZANIACK on August 29th, 2013 at 10:33 am said:

How about Arkham Asylum or City for October? I’d really like to play one of them again before Arkham Origins.

BTW, thanks for the early update. I like receiving it now instead of the day before.

I think the timing for announcing the monthly outlook is perfect this way. I don’t need to know weeks in advance like EU but we also don’t have to wait until the day before the first update either.

PS+ just keeps getting worse in North America, but better in Europe. The last good month was June.


46

+ Shinra_Soldier7 on August 29th, 2013 at 10:36 am said:

Also are there any chance that we may see NFS Most Wanted, the Jak and Daxter collection, the Unfinished Swan, or Tomb Raider have a chance of being a part of Plus in the coming months since i am sure most games may be already in place for the next few months?

Rayman Origins for Vita? Really? You made a special sale for $5.00 this month (PS+) and now giving free? For me this is not showing respect for the customers

Glad to see Ico on it, never had the chance to play it back in the days but always wanted to. Too bad I bought Rayman: Origins on Vita a few weeks ago. I might just stop buying games and wait for PS+ to let me play them ;)

+ MatheAdi on August 29th, 2013 at 10:37 am said:

Excellent! I was waiting to play ICO after beating SOTC last month. Beautiful game, can’t wait. However, I am disappointed in PS. Why would you have a Rayman sale two weeks ago with Plus savings for Origins, and then add it to IGC least than a month later. That’s ridiculous… But free games is free games :)
