PlayStation Plus: Stick it to the Man and PES 2014 Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on May 05, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

Tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members get two very different types of games – Stick it to the Man on PS4, an adventure game with platforming elements mixed in, and PES 2014 PS3, the latest entry in Konami’s venerable soccer series.

Stick it to the Man boasts a bright, animation-inspired aesthetic and witty dialogue. You’ll navigate puzzles as Ray, a normal guy with a completely average pink arm sticking out of his head. The extra appendage allows him to see other people’s thoughts and grab stickers from their brains.

On the other hand (get it?), Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 on PS3 features Konami’s revamped FOX Engine, placing more of an emphasis on ball movement via a new physics system and improved player AI. “GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLL…kick.” I had a soccer coach who used to do that all the time. It was annoying.

You can download Stick it to the Man and Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 after PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, May 6th.

Stick it to the Man (PS4)

Free for PS Plus members

Stick it to the Man
On an ordinary day, hard hat tester Ray has a bizarre accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain, giving him extraordinary mind-reading powers. Ray can suddenly change the world with stickers, transforming his paper universe by tearing it, folding it and using the crazy stickers he finds (along with his awesome new powers) to solve mind-boggling puzzles! Sadly, Ray doesn’t have much time to get to grips with his new-fangled psychic abilities. Instead, he’s on the run from ‘The Man’ for a crime he didn’t commit. Can you help Ray out of this sticky situation?

PES 2014
Experience a whole new ball game with KONAMI’s PES 2014. The stunning new FOX Engine has been combined with a revolutionary soccer system that puts the ball at the heart of the action for the first time. Every element has been rebuilt and now features all-new physics systems, custom team and player AI and a huge leap forward in animations and atmosphere.

@sonnench87,

The EU store updated last wednesday to include your months worth of PS+ titles. The US/NA store does not work that way, we get a “dose” of weekly titles, and they are not listed or available as free until they update their price in the US/NA store.

Personal insults, don’t need to be made, most of the people commenting know how the US/NA PS+ works.

While I’m usually highly positive and encouraging of company sales, I will admit that this Activision one seems a little like they just wanted to have their name advertised on the store without actually offering anything significant to consumers. Prototype 2 for $20? Really? That game is over 2 years old at this point.

Ah well. Regardless, thanks for the post!

Nothing for me this week unfortunately. Hopefully there will be better sales next week. 10% off is a dreadful sale, I’m sorry Activision but everyone else offers competitive pricing on their sales and you seemingly never do.

I’ll try Stick It To The Man for sure. Indie games have surprised me as of lately with their fun factor. Having said that, I would like to see Knack free for + users. I had it but traded it in. Now I miss it… Or Daylight would be nice too.

@32 Marketing tools because when a sequel is coming, they always give the lastest installment in the series.. Just stating the pattern :P
Examples: Borderlands 2
PES 14(6 months till the next PES right? lmao)
Tomb Raider PS3 when the PS4 version was coming out
GRID 2 (advertised as a full price game, and shortly after they re-price to 25 bucks.. then released a complete version with all DLC’s for $60, jerk move if you ask but “FU give me money!”)
Batman Arkham City
Hotline Miami.. and so on.

@36 Yeah Ryser! That’s a shame.
We (PS+ US) get more (s)crap down our throats more often than our fellow PS+ counterparts..
AMURICA!

@37 Vitor Coala
They take a while to update the store.. by tomorrow they’ll already had changed it.

@44 Yeah it’s like 5% of discount? GTFO, that’s is a shame to put them as PS Plus discounts, even more when is not shown the original price on the store, which is totally stupid (A game price is $25, $15 for PS Plus, then after its over you discover it originally cost $40 and you missed the freakin-offer)

Activision has the audacity to call that a sale? Hahahahaha. Get outta here.²

Hey folks add me! I need friends ;-;

Not a very good week, but suppose that is due to some HD remakes arriving soon.
Too bad I will not buy any of them day one, or remotely close. Already bougtht GOW HD, on PS3.
Boderlands though tempting, does not seem to deserve full retail that Killzone deserved.

And what kind of a sale is that? Leave it to Activision to put sale prices on games I would not even want, if they reduced by another 50%.

Oh well, the 99¢ sale was nice, and rain, tales of symphonia, chrono cross /trigger, and got me with Lora Croft guadian of light is plenty.

Still enjoying Need for Speed Vita too.

Thanks.

(Would seriously like to redownload purchased movies though…….. memory is expensive
. Will not buy again unless you )

I swear some people are never happy. I understand that it kind of sucks we are getting Indie for PS4 but what the hell are we supposed to get otherwise? They WILL NOT, do I need to type it again? WILL NOT give us retail games at this time for ps4. They are selling up the butt so what’s the point of giving them free. And to #57, who suggest Killzone that’s just ignorant.

And about the free soccer, I’m actually kind of excited. I never buy soccer games and it’s something different. Better than a FPS or similar.. so sick of the entire gaming industry being FPS.

@57 you sir, are a hypocrite, you say you don’t want Indie games as free PS4 games, but Octodad’s an Indie game, which you said you wanted.

Plus, the PS4′s library’s very small right now with retail games, it’s primarily indie titles, so you’ll have to suck it up and deal with it, or don’t pay for Plus if you don’t want what you’re given for 5 bucks a month, cheaper than if you bought the game itself. Plus is only worth it if you want more than just retail games. Also, if you traded Killzone, why did you trade it? You should’ve kept it if you liked it and played it a lot. Also, your spelling’s atrocious.

Apparently its a good week for me. I played pes 2014 on the pc but I am happy to try it on the ps3. I grew up with soccer and i am an american and it will always be my favorite sport. Plus I cant wait for the world cup to see us play Germany and more matches. I will also try stick it to the man because it looks interesting.

Grimm, KZ sold over 2 million copies. And it’s not feasible for Sony to give away AAA PS4 games at this point. There are simply not enough of them yet. They have only a few and to give them away for free would be horrible for business. The reason we got PS4′s at such a reasonable price is because Sony sold them for about 1/3rd of what it actually costs to manufacture. They rely on software (game) sales to make that money back and turn a profit.

$22.49 for Prototype 2 with all the DLC sounds like a great deal. It’s still $30 at most places around here, no DLC included.

Stick It To The Man should be a good time.

PES isn’t my thing, but I kinda wanna see how the Fox Engine translates to games other than Metal Gear Solid 5 so I’ll give it a whirl.

Good week :)

Btw, Fall of Cybertron is great. Highly recommended.

Had ps + on the ps3 since day two. Then just carried over my ps + over to the ps4. But now for my wife and i to play we have to buy 2 plus subscriptions. Fine. But wow. Ps3 in recent months I’ve gotten free copies of tomb raider, dmc, payday2, borderlands 2, bio shock…but for the ps4? Really sony! Two ps+ for a year and i get zombie apoc that we already platinum for ps3 long ago. Resogun? Mec kings barely works online and almost didn’t for a couple weeks. Oh, and i buy everything through you. Wheres the digital copy of diablo 3? Why cant i use my ps3 version for ps4? Awesome system. But this store bothers me. The money i pay twice over for a game each month hurts too. Got the plats, but would love an actual full game. Amazing spidey is awesome.

As always, nothing for me in the IGC.

I do appreciate the regular sales, but it would be nice if the majority of the games weren’t A) really old for the system and B) games that have been on sale over and over.

Day 1 discounts on some recent releases is a nice trend even if the games so far haven’t been of interest to me.

Hi Kristine

I know you didn’t set these prices but please tell whoever did a 10% discount on old games will not spur sales. A gam elike prototype should be $10 or less $5 if you really want to see it sell. The same is true for the other game sup for sale above.

Notice how we eagerly participated in the other sales last week and over the weekend.

@ KiLLjoY-42481

Why the hell would you need seperate subscriptions for PS4 and PS3 ?
Simply make your Plus Account you had or you wanna keep as primary Account for PS4 so if you use another Account on that PS4 you can play it right away.

PS3 works the same way, but you don´t have to set it as primary Account. Only PSVita allows just 1 Account which is a problem if you wanna play the + games with another account which has no psplus it doesn´t work.

Stick it to the Man looks interesting. Mercenary Kings i didn´t want to try because i don´t want too much trophies in my list of games which I think make no fun for me. I couldn´t see myself spending more than 5 minutes with that game.

@ Activision Sale Haters
I don´t get why you get so mad about the sales. Better a littlebit cheaper than full price or not ? Maybe Activision needs the money more than the big companies. THQ closed… Lots of other companies closed. I´m happy Activision is still here and they made a lot good games in the last console generations. Tony Hawks Skateboarding was super fun. Darksiders for PS3 was cool too.

Sorry for my bad writing – me tired. Going to sleep zzzz
