Along with those featured games, we also have some other surprises that will keep PlayStation Plus subscribers busy over the holiday break.

Coming soon to all PlayStation Plus subscribers is a free download of the beta for Sony Online Entertainment’s newest MMORPG, DC Universe Online, from the PlayStation Plus section in the PlayStation Store. From there, they can create their own super hero (or super villain) and take an adventure through Jim Lee’s vision of the DC universe. We will have more information on the exact timing of the beta in the near future, so be sure to keep your eyes on the blog.

Now I’ll finally try out Borderlands. I’m actually really excited for this one.

Zemus101 said:

December 8th, 5:00 pm

Oh damn, now I’m definitely gonna hafta shell out $50 for the Plus subscription just for the DC Universe Beta test. I hate you Sony, but I love you oh so much more.

Morac_ said:

December 8th, 5:00 pm

I had already bought Sam & Max, so it wasn’t really “free” for me. That said I look forward to the DC Universe Online beta.

Fryed_Mustard said:

December 8th, 5:00 pm

Sweet I win! Good stuff to by the way!

MarzMasta said:

December 8th, 5:01 pm

i cant wait. my $50 bucks for the subscription was well spent.

BlindMango said:

December 8th, 5:01 pm

It’s okay to say “Christmas” too, most American’s son’t like being politically correct. That’s one thing, I don’t think I have ever seen the word Christmas on this blog, on PSN, or in PlayStation Home, even your personal Christmas Tree is called a “Festive Tree”! lol, just had to blow off some steam.

But yeah, these are some pretty legit offers, if more system features get added to PS+, i will consider getting the service!

Ospov said:

December 8th, 5:04 pm

I’m a little interested in the DC beta. Other than that there wasn’t too much excitement for me. Still not bad though.

December 8th, 5:05 pm

I guess that means Borderlands will be up for download soon, too?

AWESOME

Shinmigami said:

December 8th, 5:05 pm

Yes, that will be amazing. I can’t wait for this update.

ProfessorTripp said:

December 8th, 5:08 pm

I’m asking again, since no one will reply…

PlayStation Plus members were promised the Hustle Kings avatar bundle for free, but it doesn’t show up that way in the store.

Please let us know why plans changed since last week with no explanation or warning. I’m sure we’d all appreciate it.

December 8th, 5:09 pm

Sony, you sure know how to whip out the best content during the Holidays – I LOVE YOU!

Great news on the new Beta test!

Enkei-Xpress said:

December 8th, 5:10 pm

… Not worth the $50/£50.

richlids said:

December 8th, 5:10 pm

I’ve been going back and forth in my head whether or not to get DCUniverse. So glad I’ll be able to try before I buy!

Fujiwara_Kyo said:

December 8th, 5:10 pm

Pretty cool update.Looking forward to trying out DCUO. Nice to see we are getting the neogeo games at discount as well. Thanks for that.

ProfessorTripp said:

December 8th, 5:10 pm

Here’s a quote from your December 1 post, Grace:

Featured Avatars

Please advise.

killajd said:

Im looking forward to this coming to the PSN+ subscribers. Thanks for beefing up the content for us PSN+ Users. Early Christmas Present LOL thanks SONY

Spinout209 said:

December 8th, 5:13 pm

This is great, Thanks Sony. The DC Beta sounds amazing

drownedphoniex said:

December 8th, 5:14 pm

This just made me justify my $50. Thank you Sony!!!

GODSFAVORITE said:

December 8th, 5:16 pm

So now I get into the DCUO Beta for my pre-order and for being in PSN Plus…Good times. I’m glad that I signed up

theMADster said:

December 8th, 5:17 pm

Man, I love this. First Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood multiplayer beta, then the Killzone 3 multiplayer beta, today the LBP2 beta, and now you announce I’m getting the DC Universe beta. Plus is totally a win in my book! Thank you so much!

TomHoang said:

December 8th, 5:17 pm

I love you Sony and PS+!

Also excited for the DCUO beta. Although I’m still not interested in it as long as it has a monthly fee.

FATHASUN said:

December 8th, 5:18 pm

PS+ has only gotten better. I have taken full advantage since day one.

One day I am going to add it all up. Unless some has already done so.

Rockstarmd said:

December 8th, 5:19 pm

Is that where those of us who are not Playstation Plus members but preordered the game and are awaiting our code
awhile back will go for the beta as well?

djsaiyan said:

December 8th, 5:19 pm

How about waiving the subscription fee for DCU Online for PS+ members.

I already play two MMOs, not sure I can swing a third.

Strathmore said:

December 8th, 5:20 pm

Dear PlayStation…

As a PlayStation Plus member I have already previously purchased each of the Sam and Max episodes, as well as 90% of the content you have made freely available to Plus members…

Where can I get my refund or credit for previously purchased games? What’s that, there is no such policy…? I see…

Well, surely you have SOMETHING to offer hardcore gamers like me that previously supported your games by purchasing them full price? What’s that… you don’t?

Ah… I see…

So, to recap: You’re offering games I already own, and you’re not thanking me or rewarding my loyalty for purchasing them at full price in any way, shape, or form…?

Exactly when will I start to see the worth of being a PlayStation Plus member?

And please, humour me if you can… exactly WHY do you think I will EVER sign up again for Plus “service”?

DazeOfWar said:

December 8th, 5:20 pm

Ok now you got me really excited about being a Plus member. The DCUO Beta is awesome. This is what I was hoping to try out to see if I really wanted to get into a MMO.

Sam & Max I already have and the minis I still don’t care about. Those don’t matter now that I get the Beta.

Thanks Sony. You now have a proud Plus member again.

DonCalzone21 said:

December 8th, 5:20 pm

Now everyone will get a chance to try what is my favorite PS3 game ever, BORDERLANDS. ALOT of people slept on this game. I recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have it already. Other than that I’ll be getting BATTLEFIELD 1943 and am looking forward to DCU:O. Although Im more of a MARVEL guy.

WCKidRock said:

December 8th, 5:21 pm

I have been wanting to get into the DCUO for so long! thank you thank you thank you…..oh and also an added bonus is the reduced price of some of my favourite NEOGEO titles “fatal fury” and “king of the fighters ’94”

a side note…it didn’t get answered, but is the Sam & Max game for Canadians as well..it wasn’t clear on the last psn+ post

AmericanAce said:

December 8th, 5:23 pm

YES! DC UNIVERSE ONLINE! THANK YOU PLAYSTATION, SO MUCH!

Rafael14 said:

December 8th, 5:23 pm

i hope that DC Universe is good bc i doubt a lot of ppl will play because it has a monthly subscription

sensfan1971 said:

December 8th, 5:24 pm

great update next week….already got borderlands, be warned those that don’t you may find yourself addicted and even buy the addons for it….really looking forward to the dcuo beta….also have a question noticed that both red faction: guerrilla and infamouus used to have a 1 hr trial…when store updated that icon went away and left the full games there with bag icon saying i already bought it, is this 1 of the surprises for the holidays…IE christmas?

remanutd5 said:

December 8th, 5:24 pm

well im really looking forward to the DC online Beta!!!!! loving Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves , i hope in LBP 2 we are able to play with the navigation controller instead of the DS3 controller and the Motion controller , since im in the Killzone 3 beta already and im not sure if im gonna be in the LBP 2 beta ( which i think i wont ) i hope you guys get me into the Motorstorm Apocalypse online multiplayer beta / demo since day1 lol , thanks

DC Universe beta OMG! I love my PS+ membership! Keep the good stuff coming!

cprulez89 said:

December 8th, 5:29 pm

Sweet update, can’t wait till 21st!

Kchow23 said:

December 8th, 5:30 pm

Make free trials at least 1 hour longer, and give us the option to decide what we want to be automatically downloaded not just “select content”. Also why not display the PS + logo on the blog for the users that do have it?

Christian399 said:

December 8th, 5:31 pm

Nice content!

Is there any chance that you’ll be offering DCUO as a full game download when it releases? I would love that for my MMOs (think FFXIV intimated that they might be doing something similar).

FATHASUN said:

December 8th, 5:31 pm

@44 DonCalzone21…

Anyone complaining at this point is just hating. It will only get better.

pcwzrd13 said:

December 8th, 5:32 pm

Will the NEOGEO games work on the PSP as well or just the PS3?
