PlayStation Plus: BioShock Infinite Joins the Instant Game Collection

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Jan 13, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

It’s almost time for BioShock Infinite to join the Instant Game Collection! The first BioShock allowed you to explore the downfall of the underwater society Rapture, but BioShock Infinite takes you to the skies – specificially the utopia of Colombia. As Booker DeWitt, a hired gun, you’ve been contracted to find Elizabeth, a mysterious girl locked up in a massive tower with a giant mechanical bird as a bodyguard. Just like BioShock had plasmids to amp up its first-person shooter combat, BioShock Infinite has vigors. Ranging from defensive with Return to Sender, which absorbs all damage and sends it hurling back at your enemy to the offensive with Charge, where Booker will slam into a specified opponent, you can mix up your play style throughout the game’s campaign.

There’s also a ton of titles on sale for both PS3 and PS Vita as part of our 14 for ’14 promotion including Crysis 3, Far Cry: Blood Dragon and The Wolf Among Us Season Pass, so check out all the deals below.

You can download BioShock Infinite after PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

Oh well, Bioshock Infinite :D

My only problem with Infinite is the difficulty. Not even Hard Mode is hard. You’ll die more times during the first minutes than the whole game. Great story and beautiful art, but the gameplay is just not right. You decide if you want to die or keep playing.

This is a great addition to the IGC pretty unbelievable that you guys are giving this one for free….I appreciate and I still dont have the game but Bioshock Infinite is a must buy in retail,I need the physical copy of this game.Good for those who like digitals though.Well will add to my download list anyway.

Crysis 3 for $5.00? That’s crazy! I’m definitely getting it and tales of Xillia this week.

$10 is the right price for Tales of Xillia. I’m regret paying $60 for it.

Great sales!

Will the sale also be available for EU? Really want that Tales of Xillia for 10$.

Ah, finally time to switch from the Full Game Trial to the extended rental! Of the hour I spent, loved the barbershop quartet best (got to browsing the carnival booths before it kicked me out).

Already posted my sales prospects (Enslaved! Puppeteer! Xillia! Others! Not Rain, for now!) on that blog post.

It’s a meh week for me. I bought Bioshock in a flash sale back in December, so I own that already. I just spent the last of my money on renewing my PS+ subscription and books for my spring semester of college, so I can’t take advantage of the sales. Though, if you have the cash for the sales and/or have never played Infinite, your are in for a treat.

Can’t wait to play Brothers coming up and hopefully there are some sales after January, then I’ll have the cash for it!

great update! im gonna try to go get a $20 psn card today to get ready for these sales :D

also i have some suggestions for ther igc : Catherine, Mafia 2, Resident Evil 6, tomb raider, heavy rain, dark souls, L.A. Noire, max payne3.

also you guys should put more RPGs in the igc.

Wow, crazy sales! Peace Walker, TWA, Velocity, Limbo, Sly and Killzone for me! And waiting for another discount on Dragon’s Crown and Assassins Creed! Also, a Persona 3P discount would not be bad at all, since it actually costs twice as much as P3:FES. Here, take all my money at once!

Thanks for the sales!

+ ThumbsOfSteel74 on January 13th, 2014 at 12:12 pm said:

@NoWay: I’m not sure why Limbo PS3 is listed in the last chance section since it apparently isn’t going to be on sale. Must be an error. Limbo isn’t a cross buy title any more. Anyway, the last chance sections in these weekly Plus posts are there to inform you of what will be going off sale when the store updates next Tuesday. Limbo PS Vita and the other games listed won’t be on sale until tomorrow. So check back in roughly 26 hours, but again I don’t think Limbo PS3 will be on sale.

@diablo103: There are plenty available on Amazon, but they’re all at least $110 including shipping. That’s insane.

Important question! if i buy these ps3 sales would i be able to play them on playstation now! ? I sold my ps3 to fund my Ps4. So please do let me know so i can give you more of my money. I think am buying every single vita game.

If I have the timed trial, do I need to re-download infinite?

@Firstnerve1700: Yes. You can confirm this in the XMB: Settings -> System Settings -> System Information.

Anybody else notice that the points you earned for signing up for Playstation Rewards already has an expire date. My points are set to expire on 3/31/14. Im not sure how you can save up 5999 points to get a game off the rewards if they expire that fast.


123

+ TheOathsworn on January 13th, 2014 at 12:26 pm said:

I’d like to jump in to mention that Tales of Xillia at $10 is totally worth it, that’s literally 1/10th of the price I paid for to get my copy, own a copy of the collector’s edition and I totally don’t regret it! Most definately one of the best JRPGs to be released stateside in 2013 alongside Ni No Kuni, also Xillia 2 is coming sometime in 2014 so it’s the best time as any to get it.

Will most likely be picking up Enslaved tomorrow after the store updates with all these sales.

I do say Bioshock Infinite has piqued my interest. Anyone mind giving me their input to if I’ll be fine playing this if I haven’t experienced the other two games beforehand? I don’t mind splurging a bit either way to get the rest of the series.

Awesome sale. Thanks for all the hard work that is put into a sale like this. Going to load up and buy 6 or 7 games. Keep up the great work, I appreciate it.

Cheers.

+ death_nation100 on January 13th, 2014 at 12:53 pm said:

And I had beat DMC 3 days after they release it for PS plus so now it’s time to play BioShock: Infinite.

But since it’s coming out tomorrow don’t you think it’s being release too early because it’s a 6 day gap between the release of DMC and Bioshock:infinite .Plus their won’t be any new games release at the end of the month only that indie title called Brothers.

Killzone, Tales, and Puppeteer for me this week I think. I already have Bioshock Infinite on my PC. Fun, but something was missing. Not sure what it was, but it wasn’t as compelling as the original Bioshock.


129

+ rockytrh on January 13th, 2014 at 1:00 pm said:

@123 It isn’t connected directly to Bioshock (or Bioshock 2). There is one little bit in it that you will get some additional enjoyment out of if you are familiar with Bioshock, but it isn’t necessary.

Awesome sale Sony and thank you. for those that don’t have the room on your PSvita memory card you can always use the the content manager on PC or PS3(if you have the room on the hard-drive). To the people that moderate the blog, do you have an idea on when the ps4 vita content manager will be available.

@126 death_nation100 – “The indie title” is the one I’m most looking forward to. Hyping myself that it may be the closest “Journey experience” of 2013.

137

+ TheOathsworn on January 13th, 2014 at 1:19 pm said:

@129 Thanks for the input, was getting a little worried I’d be needing to put this on the side, until I buy and play the other two. I’ll eventually get the other two, but that’ll have to wait until I can make this backlog of games I have disappear.


138

+ Gamerzlimited on January 13th, 2014 at 1:23 pm said:

Can’t wait for Bioshock Infinite! Will be playing it all the way to the end. And will buy Killzone: Mercenary too.

@Vyprstryke Of course. Why wouldn’t it? My save for Borderlands 2 worked fine on the digital version. Should do the same on the other two games. The only way it would not be compatible if your physical copies come from a different region.

Zero sales for PS4,great job Sony. Keep giving us cheap indie games and no sales while giving last gen amazing deals and free games. Why do I stay a plus member on PS4? We need it for online and yet the servers are even worse than last gen and when it comes to sales or free games we get about 5% of what PS3 and Vita users get. I understand it’s early in the PS4 cycle so I don’t expect many free games but a sale once in a blue moon would be nice because seeing past gen get so many deals and free games is a kick to the balls and it’s not nice.

+ purse317 on January 13th, 2014 at 1:38 pm said:

I’m going to spend about $30 on this sale maybe $40 depending on Killzone and that sounds great right but I can’t help wanting to have that big sale like I saw over in Europe. With that sale I’d have dropped $100 easily. I still feel short changed comparing their sale to ours now I want more.

Happy for the sale hope we see more this month but unless we see the shear volume of items like they saw overseas I’ll be disappointed.

Also I saw on twitter what’s coming to ps4 plus next moth awesome job
