A lame RE on-rails shooter is the top ps3 game this month? Guess i expected too much to think you would compete with EU’s Assasin’s Creed 3.

not interested in the sales listed either.

I LOVED the Darkside Chronicles on Wii, but missed this HD re-release on PS3, so I am very happy to be getting it with plus!

Not to mention a nice discount on Puppeteer as well.

Pretty weak for sales this week, but good to see the Resident Evil Chronicles HD in the IGC!

This is boring….really….goodbye Ps Plus….and welcome xbox live gold.

Great you guy’s keep it up like this and I probably won’t be doing another year of ps plus I have had it for 2 month know and all the stuff you give us is nothing compared to what EU get’s your telling me all we get are terrible resident evil game and a old ps2 game which I played almost 8 year’s ago thank’s sony for screwing me over with ps plus

+ VanguardFate on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:10 am said:

It’s not as lame as it seems. Well Umbrella Chronicles is, but Darkside Chronicles is a great game and the closest thing we’ll probably ever get to a RE2 Remake.

AC3 is so terrible, i take this Resident Evil any day of the week.

+ UnBulletedStar on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:11 am said:

I’m a bit disappointed. Europe seems to be getting much better games and I advise you to compete with their game collection if you wish to retain those disappointed customers of yours. Personally, I believe Assassin’s Creed III is more impressive than the Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection. And I’m sure many agree. Take heed, please. Just some feedback.

+ zalwelgoedgaan on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:11 am said:

@Ryumoau: At least you guys get a nice PS+ discount for Puppeteer, Sony should do that for all their DD titles if they want to push digital sales.

+ jcamacho_cr on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:11 am said:

Does Puppeteer comes with some pre-order bonus?


11

+ Betorro on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:11 am said:

Upset, angry and totally disappointed.

Lame on-rails game?

where is AC3? NSMW? RPG GAME?

lame sales too

+ klassymike on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:12 am said:

I have to agree, this is an old Wii port for our so called top game of the month. The least you could do is add another PS3 game to the line-up for September. EU is totally laughing at the US for this terrible line-up! You really need to step up your game here in the U.S.as far as the IGC is concerned!! Not happy with this month at all!!

+ Phoenix90 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:12 am said:

Haha you’re all so butt hurt for no reason. Complaining about free games. Why?

+ chavez1138 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:12 am said:

it does feel cheap vs. EU but I actually want to play this RE game, I would had never bought this game and it’s good to have something fun for the Move


15

+ SirRamonTercero on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:13 am said:

So, we’re back to the old format? No more previews?


16

+ MapleStory on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:14 am said:

@1: ^ Poor entitled baby, maybe you should just sell your PS3 instead.

Looking forward to RE Chronicles and Kickbeat (may bite on Puppeteer as well)! I wish the blog weren’t full of narrow-minded whiners and complainers. I personally love the varied genres that PS+ offers, there’s a lot of games I wouldn’t have experienced if it wasn’t for being a member.

Day 1 subscriber here (June 28th, 2010) and stacked years up to 2016…and I’ve been nothing but happy with the service!

+ Betorro on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:14 am said:

old Wii port?

PS plus US Sucks. PS plus EU RULES!


18

+ Kalysm on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:15 am said:

Wait, wut?? Didn’t I just pay Retro City Rampage last night discounted to $3.74 on PS Plus? Yes. Yes I did. So is this what we would call an un-discount?


19

+ UnBulletedStar on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:15 am said:

@13 – We pay money for this service that gives us “free games”, by the way. And comparatively speaking, considering Europe also gets these “free games”, I apologize if asking for games of the same calibre as the ones Europe gets is being “butt hurt”.


20

+ Gtagentleman on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:16 am said:

Nice, we got an old Nintendo Wii port, this is sure the best Sony can do.

@ Phoenix90 They are not free, we are paying a monthly fee for this service.

+ thebgj on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:18 am said:

I bought those RE games months ago, and i am a huge RE fan. But they were not that great (thats just my opinion). I am glad to see any RE game on the IGC. I cant wait for revelations to be free. those two RE move games were the first games i purchased in almost 2 years….i love PS+


22

+ Betorro on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:18 am said:

@Phoenix90 Free?

+ ERC1980 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:20 am said:

So my Question to you Kristine is this:

Does the Digital Version of Puppeteer come with the Theatrical Pack DLC that Gamestop gets, cause if not, i’ll decline on the digital version.


24

+ TimeSkipLuffyUS on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:20 am said:

I already played AC III and own a physical copy.
It’s not about the game itself. I’m excited to play Resident Evil! I never cared about it before. Now I get a chance to play it!

BUT it is about the line up quality. Resident Evil should have been there next to a blockbuster game like AC III.

PS Plus still is better than XBOX live gold but the US PS+ is worth less than EU PS+ for sure!


25

+ notoptimus on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:21 am said:

They’re not free games. You pay for the Plus subscription. If they were free I would be getting them too but the lineup hasn’t been good enough to convince me to join.


26

+ VanguardFate on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:24 am said:

@13, IKR. How can they be mad about FREE stuff. And then that one guy talking about cancelling for XBLG? Well, they only ever offer like 7 year old games for free, so I think he’ll be really let down there….


27

+ Skygazer_10 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:25 am said:

Disappointed in this weeks IGC. The discounted games have also left me disappointed. Regardless of this week I’m still enjoying PS Plus.

It’d be cool if we had just as many great games Europe has for their IGC.

Hey Morgan, will we be able to play our ps3 Instant game collection through gaikai? I have a lot of PS3 PS Plus games I’d like to be able to play on PS4.


28

+ swavage415 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:29 am said:

I would’ve been happy had I not bought the resident evil bundle for 8 bucks last Halloween. Weak sales this week, weakest in a long time and no mention of what’s to come. How come we don’t get themes anymore and EU really is starting to kick our butt. I have plus for another 265 days or so so I won’t be reknewing until I get a ps4 in about 4 years. Too afraid it will have thermal paste melt and I have a backlog of about 60 games to play and gta 5 which should keep me busy until then. Bring on Catherine!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice undiscount on retro city rampage lol.


29

+ Yuranium on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:29 am said:

Doesn’t matter what comes out for IGC, there’s always people not happy about it. It’s $5 a month, don’t get PS+ if you are so unhappy about it.


30

+ TheFrozenFire77 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:30 am said:

Are you guys intentionally trying to get people off of NA PS Plus and over to EU?
Starting to honestly wonder…

You have to hear the outrage of the community….especially with August and now September.

I’ll always thank you for the free games, but please start listening to the people paying for PS+.
There are those whose only games they can play are from Plus and the Plus discounts, and seeing a month like this has to be devastating.

I don’t want to scold you or anything, it’s just some friendly, respectful advice that I know many of us would side with.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for the PS+ benefits.
Take care.

and nothing new for the vita again. guess i´ll be waiting on my subscription renewal until something good come to vita.

+ theman_714 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:31 am said:

I honestly thought we’d Get Rayman ORIGINS first since LEGENDS is coming out tomorrow. Still pretty excited to see what this game’s all about.

Morgan, Do you need to use a Playstation Move to play this game?


33

+ MussiBR on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:32 am said:

Wait a second… Retro City Rampage today is Crossbuy for PS+ for US$3.74. Tomorrow the discounted price will be US$8.99? Ok…


34

+ AmericanNinja1 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:32 am said:

Awesome update! very solid. Kristine, I have a question. when are we going to be able to pre-order Killzone: Mercenary from the PS Store?


35

+ phoenix24x on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:33 am said:

Does One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 suppose to come out tomorrow too?


36

+ drmejor14 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:34 am said:

Many of the games on sale and on IGC are niche title which I believe aren’t very popular with the majority of people. Maybe instead of putting all these obscure and niche titles all together, why not spread them out between the months. Unless the plan is to get rid of the less popular games now then blow us away with psn content during the holiday season? Lol.


37

+ RyanSaotome on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:34 am said:

You’re advertising Retro City Rampage for 8.99 when its currently on the store for 3.74? This is in the running for worst PS Plus update ever.


38

+ Yuranium on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:35 am said:

@35 It’s suppose to. This is the PS+ post, so if no discount involve it won’t shows up here. It’s on the Drop post though.


39

+ Cortez583 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:35 am said:

I’m sorry these sales are pitiful. PSN plus hasn’t been the same.
No complaints on the free game.
Also must I remind people who don’t have PSN Plus asking why are people complaining that it’s a paid service. Smh. People can complain if they think they deserve better, and we do.

+ loakum on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:37 am said:

If you’re into the whole motion control stuff, then RE is a good pick up.


41

+ martinirage1 on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:37 am said:

Some nice discounts. But Retro City Rampage has been on sale so many times and it’s already been offered free on ps plus. A different vita game discount would have been a nice change.

I’m not too excited about RE. Would have been sweet if this was replaced with Shadow of the Colossus/ICO collection instead of just getting ICO.


42

+ Yanorath on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:39 am said:

funny how most of EU people don’t care about ACIII and wanted a better game xDDDD… i hope the US plus keeps this way =), i really don’t want those overrated games they give at EU…

but 1 RPG would be nice =\

Dude seriously you need to step up or someone will get fired, europe always beat you and thats not cool. Every month you give worst games than europe.

Hope October is better but haven’t played REHD coll. or ICO so its not that bad. To anyone who compares xbox live to PS PLUS is insane, its not even close…ps plus any day of any week of any year
