After nearly six months, we continue to see PlayStation Plus grow and deliver compelling content for PlayStation gamers. Over these past six months, we have seen some great content introduced — from the DC Universe Online beta to the NHL GameCenter LIVE Application — that is expanding the offerings for all subscribers. Now we are looking to continue that trend through 2011 with new offerings.
In the first week of 2011, we are publishing three featured games, giving gamers a look at a classic, a throwback from 2010, and an exclusive mini from an indie developer. First, we’ll be taking gamers back to Insomniac’s second game ever developed for the PSone, Spyro the Dragon. Take part in the first iteration of a classic franchise with a free download of the PSone classic. Also, we’ll be offering a free download of Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Wild West, a third person multiplayer shooter set in the wild west. Finally, we’ll be offering Pipe Madness, a minis title developed by The Bearded Ladies Consulting (known for Landit Bandit), exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers for two weeks.
Also, for those looking for that special gift for your gamer friends and family, we are still offering our promotion giving full year subscribers an extra three months of PlayStation Plus. This is a great gift that will continue to give throughout the year.
Finally, a quick reminder to pick up content that we will be removing content from the PlayStation Plus storefront, including the DC Universe Online Beta and sales on Sonic 4 Episode 1 and Dead Nation. Be sure to see the full list below and download the items before they are removed.
