PlayStation Plus: Don’t Starve & DmC Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Jan 06, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

It’s officially 2014, and if you checked out our preview post and video last month you’ll know that means mega awesome titles are coming soon! Tomorrow our Plus members will be able to download both Don’t Starve on PlayStation 4 and DMC Devil May Cry on PlayStation 3. Don’t Starve is deceptively cute, so don’t be fooled, this is a hardcore survival simulator. You (as a Gentleman Scientist) will need to gather, hunt and build in order to stay alive in this mysterious land.

DmC Devil May Cry refreshes the story of Dante and gives him a bit of a makeover, but the combat is still as action-packed as you’d expect from a DMC title. Dante still packs his pistols Ebony & Ivory as well as his blade Rebellion, and you’ll have to switch back and forth from Angel and Demon mode in order to rack up your massive combos.

You can download Don’t Starve and DmC Devil May Cry as well as take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 1/7.

    PlayStation®Plus subscribers in North America during this promotion will receive 120 Gold Coins in Home Tycoon (about a $5 value) at no additional cost after completing the tutorial, even if you’ve already completed it previously. Upon arriving in your city, you should have a phone call waiting for you from Freebie F. McFreeberson with some exciting news. ;)

    We’re really excited to be able to promote Home Tycoon to such a massive new audience this month. Tell your friends!

So great games for the month. First real week into January and I’m just trying to look through all these discounts you put out…Start of 2014 and we have a ton of discounts to kick off the new year…OH wait I was on the EU page, well I’m sure we still got a bunch of…one? ONE!?! But I’m sure it for a great game…nope. Well I’m sure it for a huge discount… $1.25. I get bigger discounts from coupons in my Sunday paper.

“So for 50$ I can walk into my game store and get 5-8 games that would be IGC caliber”

Please stop lying. Everybody has these imaginary game stores that they could only get great deals but nobody else can. What is your special game store that is selling DMC and Bioshock Infinite for like $6.25-10 each? It isn’t happening because anybody with a brain especially a game store that is trying to make a profit would be so dumb to sell it for too low of a price. Any business that thinks it is a good idea to sell these caliber games for normally for like $6-10 would go out of business quickly. Go look at the +$15 Bioshock Infinite or the almost $20 DMC prices on ebay. Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop is selling DMC for like $30 right now. Amazon had a one day gold box sale for like $9.99 but it was just one day and now it sells for over $19 on amazon.

@90

What is the special game store website that sells games like DMC and Bioshock for around $6 to $10? Provide the link to back up your claim. Let me guess that “your special game store” doesn’t have a link. Binary Domain sells for $14 on amazon, $10 on gamestop and probably like $8 on ebay. You aren’t getting these games and others like Grid 2, Borderlands 2, Kingdoms of Amalur, Saints Row: The Third, Sleeping Dogs, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Infamous 2 and the list goes on and on for as dirt cheap (around $6) as you think you could from your special game store. By the way, I purchased 8 games during October promotion from PS+ discounts for like $40. That is real…. You have to mention the great discounts that PS+ has sometimes that includes like $2.75 The Walking Dead game (entire season) and Siren Blood Curse for $9.99. Ebay sells that disc version for $30! Better than your special game store.

In Response to the “Copy & Paste” issue.

Plagiarism, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Plagiarism is the “wrongful appropriation” and “purloining and publication” of another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation of them as one’s own original work.[1][2] The idea remains problematic with unclear definitions and unclear rules.[3][4][5] The modern concept of plagiarism as immoral and originality as an ideal emerged in Europe only in the 18th century, particularly with the Romantic movement.
Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions like expulsion.
Plagiarism is not a crime per se but in academia and industry it is a serious ethical offense,[6][7] and cases of plagiarism can constitute copyright infringement.


124

+ THA_STARKILLER on January 6th, 2014 at 1:39 pm said:

Journalism
Since journalism relies on the public trust, a reporter’s failure to honestly acknowledge their sources undercuts a newspaper or television news show’s integrity and undermines its credibility. Journalists accused of plagiarism are often suspended from their reporting tasks while the charges are being investigated by the news organization.[21]
The ease with which electronic text can be reproduced from online sources has lured a number of reporters into acts of plagiarism. Journalists have been caught “copying and pasting” articles and text from a number of websites.


125

+ THA_STARKILLER on January 6th, 2014 at 1:40 pm said:

Self-plagiarism
Self-plagiarism (also known as “recycling fraud”[24]) is the reuse of significant, identical, or nearly identical portions of one’s own work without acknowledging that one is doing so or without citing the original work. Articles of this nature are often referred to as duplicate or multiple publication. In addition to the ethical issue, this can be a copyright violation if copyright of the prior work has been transferred to another entity. Typically, self-plagiarism is only considered a serious ethical issue in settings where someone asserts that a publication consist of new material, such as in publishing or factual documentation.[25] It does not apply to public-interest texts, such as social, professional, and cultural opinions usually published in newspapers and magazines.

dude you are absolutely right this is a shame how the U.S. plus system operates they have to know we’d prefer the EU system to this one heck we’ve said it over and over AND OVER AGAIN.

Also I’d doubt it was Kristine who didn’t respond to us she’s cool her and Ryan but whoever else runs plus the blog etc just seems to ignore us. The EU blog literally responds to their members with actual answers not vague statements they actively seek to acquire the games members ask for and get them great sales.

Just look today we didn’t get a clear concise response as to why sales can’t be arranged more than a week in advance. That’s crazy in the 21st century absolutely nuts. Watch we won’t even get responses well into the 2nd or 3rd pages of posts.

+ sirbflo114 on January 6th, 2014 at 3:05 pm said:

@114

Yes. We are aware that the instant games aren’t necessarily free but a PS+ user has the ability to play a ton of full games for a small yearly price. I paid like $40 for 15 months and downloaded like 40 games in that time. If you could play a full game like recent games such as Borderlands 2 (91 metascore), Grid 2 (82 metascore), Binary Domain (72 score), Dragon Dogma: Dark Arisen (78 score), Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (81 score) and the list goes on and on for such a small price, it is well worth it. You say the games stink but the high scores say otherwise. Some people pay $59.99 for one game that they put in a couple hours of gaming and then put it back on their shelf to collect dust…. What is more bang for the buck? “But but but the game is owned”…. And? The discounts have been lacking lately though but the discount promo in late October was awesome. I got 8 games for like $40 and those deals were hundred times better than amazon or ebay. AND THOSE GAMES WERE PURCHASED AND OWNED. Now you comeback with digital vs disc games right?

@135 I wasn’t saying the games aren’t good. I just hate them being called free. it’s a term used when something is given to you. this is not that. in my opinion this is the way corporations get you to follow them blindly. these games aren’t free. they are simply giving you the ones you paid for already.

and admit that the games and sales have been less and less. THIS is why they call them free games, so you won’t notice.


141

+ djsaiyan on January 6th, 2014 at 3:21 pm said:

To the people complaining about Kristine’s post that said there were sales when there weren’t any, let me drop a little knowledge on you, courtesy of a little thing called the dictionary. I’ve copied and pasted the pertinent portion of the definition below.

tem·plate also tem·plet (tmplt)
n.
2. Computer Science
a. A document or file having a preset format, used as a starting point for a particular application so that the format does not have to be recreated each time it is used: a loan amortization template for a spreadsheet program.

You may want to pay special attention to “A document or file having a preset format, used as a starting point for a particular application so that the format does not have to be recreated each time it is used”

It is common practice in professional blogging when one has to make a similar post on a regular basis to use a template. Occasionally part of that template needs to be modified that doesn’t normally, and occasionally the blogger in question will forget to do so. It’s called being human. It happens. Everyone slips up once in a while.

GET OVER IT.
