PlayStation Plus: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Jan 20, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was praised by game critics last year for its successful meshing of story and gameplay. Controlling the two brothers of the story with one analog stick each can take some getting used to, but you’ll find your rhythm as you solve puzzles with the end goal of saving your ailing father.

Starting tomorrow you can get your friends together and pit your wormy soldiers against each other in Worms: Battle Island on PS Vita. The adorable franchise has remained a favorite over the years with its classic turn-based strategy gameplay. With options like dressing your worms how you want and using oddball weapons like a Holy Hand Grenade, your fights will have plenty of pizzaz.

Finally, there’s a new PS Vita PLAY sale starting with OlliOlli. If you like music and rhythm games there’s also an entire sale dedicated to titles in those genres, so check out all the discounts below.

You can download Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Worms: Battle Islands after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 1/21.

LoL the system launched in jan it’s been out a lil over 2 mos yeah your being impatient … remember the ps3 it took forever to get the update to hit the PS button to go to the xmb from a game you were playing … For the longest time you had to quit your game to go to the xmb just to look at a msg

Any word on when Pinball Arcade and/or Zen Pinball will be updated? I love those games! :)

@45, it’s called standards, get some. Ps4 does way less then the ps3…in 2014, thats ridiculous. Also Sony should have done a better job planning for a few more titles to be available at launch, even just 1-2 more between Jan-march. This is not sony’s first launch, they should have planned it better.

Because it has been NORMAL in the past is irrelevant, it should not be normal and its a big flaw in the console industry. I buy a new PC it can do everything and play everything my old one could, consoles are too closed, they should be more open. Sony should have put more resources into getting a bot more content on Ps4.

+ mastorofpuppetz on January 20th, 2014 at 9:54 am said:

@51..this is PS4, not 3, it should be better then ps3, not stripped down and back to basics, thats the issue. It’s called progress.

$10.39 for OlliOlli??? Are you kidding me?

The game looks fun and I want to get it but I dont think its worth that much. :o/

I saw the dev diary and its basically 5 worlds with 5 normal stages and 5 hard stages… I can beat that in a week.

I’m not trying to be a downer or just complain but it looks like a PS Mini.

Just going to wait for a real sale, sorry.

LoL at get standards I love it … I have standards and thank god they are not the same as yours it would suck to always be disappointed … Your pc analogy wasn’t very good … But maybe you should get a pc i recommend the haswell cpu or sandybridge 2600k cpu the ivybridge too

HELP!!!
In my PSN account, it only shows these games in the ps + free list (ps3): borderlands 2, dmc, remember me, guacamelee, uncharted 3, xcom and little big planet karting. For me there’s no bioshock infinite and no 2014 sales

picking up Brothers!

I wish you’d stop giving us PSP games in the IGC – I bought the Vita for current gen, native Vita games. I really hope next month is much better for Vita (PS3 had a killer month this month though!).

+ mdawk13 on January 20th, 2014 at 10:16 am said:

@56 you’re complaining about software issues not hardware which are common in new products. This is common sense to not be the first in line to get a new system, wait til everything is ironed out and the games are there.


63

+ alphagoku1 on January 20th, 2014 at 10:22 am said:

I don’t ecpect everything to be done when its released, that a bit obsurd, but puppets is right, its not like its the first launch and theres supposed to be progress, if I wanted to get a ass backwards system…. oh right, I didn’t want that, that’s why I went with playstation. the whole thing is, if theres problems, or unforeseen delays, ahead of time or not, let us know, there would be SO much less complaining from people who have waited long enough as is and paid hard earned money to support the next gen, you may be ok with forking over how ever many hours you or your parents spent to make that money just to wait even longer to be able to use it, but I would like to have bought a $500 system for something other than just looking at and wondering how awesome the game that comes out in about a year will be.

+ INFIDEL_JIHAD on January 20th, 2014 at 10:23 am said:

Oh btw i have a nice pc… everything is already up coded for teamspeak ventrillo the list i goes on and on when a console is launched they have to write the code for it all … The reason why xb1 won’t have twitch ustream til summer ! … This isn’t exclusive to sony … This kind of thing is the norm for a console launch

+ mdawk13 on January 20th, 2014 at 10:27 am said:

I was wondering if the ps plus will degrade when the ps4 is around longer. More people will have to get plus to play online so ps plus wont have to be make itself as attractive by giving away good games and discounts. So to all the whiners, cherish these moments of getting a lot of good games and discounts because a business is a business, and it could be gone at some point.

Lol @ a sale on music games.

Those aren’t even ‘games’

You couldn’t pay me to ‘play a ‘music game’

At least it’s a sale on something different I suppose.

You never run out of ideas to disappoint your customers… wow.

+ boomstickbhg on January 20th, 2014 at 10:41 am said:

@75 last weeks sale was mostly recycled sales from before. It was okay, but all the sales NA has done over the past 3 or so months combined still pales in comparison to a couple weeks of the EU psn or Xbox sales.

As far as this weeks faux music fare, as a musician these games offend me.


79

+ alphagoku1 on January 20th, 2014 at 10:42 am said:

ok, and? as I said, it wasn’t meant for you, and that fact is irrelevant still. I was making a point that people shouldn’t have to deal with as much to say that the price is as high as it is for apparently inferior systems

Can’t wait to play Brothers. Don’t overlook Retro/Grade, it’s a really fun rhythm game. Try out the demo, it’s a real hidden gem in my opinion.

Mdawk is a corporate user sending subliminal message, preventing the forum from what’s coming for ps+ users. :(. No, seriously, it’s still a paying service and i expect at least 2 more years before what you said to happen, mostly considering that sony said they were going to support ps3 gamers in this short future. For ps4 ok they pay for gaming online, but i’m a ps3 gamer, different scenario.

They’re holding back on MP3 support until they have enough subscriptions.

+ mdawk13 on January 20th, 2014 at 11:32 am said:

@85 lol. I dont know, i just wonder. If you already have everyone signed up to play online, why would you pay developers the toll for the discounts and free games? Probably turn into ps plus indie. Worst case scenario in years to come, i appreciate the past years discounts and free games so cant complain.

+ jgrizzle358 on January 20th, 2014 at 11:35 am said:

anyone who was dumb enough to see their PS3 to get the PS4 deserves to have it collect dust. Every true gamer knows you always keep the last gen system. Especially since it continues to be supported. Duh.

I would pay Square-Enix /Eidos to make an update for Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on the PS4 to be 1080p 60 fps. It’s currently only 30fps and it has to be 60fps to justify the expensive purchase.

Ipad 1 2 3 4 10,000 are pretty much the same thing with small upgrades. I have 1. PS3 and 4 are a lot different, run different software, etc. an ipad plays angry birds and surfs the web.its cool but apple just recycles the same product and adds a number to it.

I bought my ps3 jan 2013. 500 gb, 249.99. Got a lot of games that were 59.99 for 5 and 10 bucks on here along with the ps plus games. Not saying people should wait that late, but i saved a lot of money.

What a steaming pile of dog feces for sales. This is quite possibly the worst I’ve seen in the nine months I’ve been a member.

I’m also not a fan of Brothers, judging by what I know of the game. (Though to be fair, I haven’t played it.)

Still, you guys have at least been doing a good job on giving worthwhile AAA titles to us, and last week’s sale was pretty awesome.

This week? No..not so much.

Why did Sony remove the ability to download the Free PS+ PS4 games to your account without having a PS4, at the SEN website? I was able to download Resogun/Contrast. Now I need to have a PS4 to be able to do it…..How lame.
