PlayStation Plus September Offers: 10 Free Games including Plants vs. Zombies

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by

VP, PlayStation Network

Before we get to what’s coming to PlayStation Plus, we wanted to let you know that starting today, we’re making a slight change to how we communicate PlayStation Plus updates. Instead of posting twice per month on what’s coming to Plus, we’re going to be making one post that gives an overview of all the content that’s hitting Plus in that particular month. So today’s post will cover content coming in September, and the next post will hit in the first Monday of October. Of course, with every week’s Store Update post, you’ll know what’s going on the Store for Plus on that week.

Now to the good stuff! We’ve got some great content this month coming free to Plus subscribers including PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies, the furious shoot-em-up Astro Tripper, and the final game in the SEGA Genesis Collection, Altered Beast. The value of all three of these titles adds up to more than a $24 savings, which doesn’t include the additional minis and PSone Classics you’ll get this month too. This month also marks a special occasion as we’re celebrating the Resident Evil 15th Anniversary with PSone Classics: Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3, all free to PlayStation Plus subscribers starting 9/20, for 2 weeks only. In other PSone Classic news, Jet Moto will also be free starting tomorrow, 9/6.

On the discount side of things, Resident Evil 4 (releasing 9/20 on PSN) and Resident Evil Code Veronica (releasing on 9/27 on PSN) will be 50% off for Plus subscribers as part of the RE 15th Anniversary special. We’ll also offer for 1 week an additional 50% off select LucasArts PSP content on sale for PSN . Check the list below for all the titles in this lineup as well as the other discounts.

There’s tons more including new Full Game Trials, free themes and avatars; all will be coming on the dates noted below for September. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and enjoy!

Holy Crap! That’s a lot of great content. Like I didn’t have enough to play this Fall.

I wanted to play Plants vs Zombies so bad but didn’t want to pay 15$ for it. Now I can have it for free!

digitalman123 said:

September 5th, 9:19 am

Free Plants vs. Zombies? Tomorrow? My dreams have been realized… I really love PS Plus…


September 5th, 9:19 am

“Resident Evil 4 – 50% off – 9/20 (2 Weeks)
Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD – 50% off – 9/20 (2 Weeks)”

50% of what? $19.99?

Does Saint’s Row 2 have a ps plus discount as well?

    Morgan Haro said:

    September 6th, 11:09 am

    Yep, $19.99 is the price without the discount, so you’ll be able to purchase both RE4 and RE: CV for about $10.

    I don’t have any info on Saint’s Row 2, sorry!

Chuckbait said:

September 5th, 9:20 am

How much will RE4 cost?

BossmanCCrowder1 said:

September 5th, 9:21 am

Wow awesome! Probably the best month for PS Plus. I already have RE2 and 3, but I’ve been wanting PvZ, and I can’t for RE4 HD, I love the 50% discount!

tylerh1701 said:

September 5th, 9:22 am

@5 Yes, I believe they were announced at $20, so they’ll cost plusers $10. Which I think is pretty awesome!!!

Mobius2525 said:

September 5th, 9:24 am

thank god i didn’t buy Plants vs zombie now i can get it free.

Deathspear666 said:

September 5th, 9:24 am

SONY??!!..Why the h e l l do you keep posting demos AFTER the game has been out?! The whole purpose of a demo is to try before you buy but you post demos after…pretty stupid..derp

Cant stand plants vs zombies, already have astro tripper (just like i already have everything that plus has given free outside of a few things i wouldnt play). I dont even bother downloading mini’s anymore because 99% of them are garbage, and I dont bother with ps1 games because well…there ps1 games.

PS+ is basically a yearly service i pay for so I can get auto updates and cloud saving and auto-updates/trophy sync/save uploading doesnt even work.

EgoBrasil said:

September 5th, 9:28 am

Awesome content for this month.

zzamaro said:

September 5th, 9:29 am

Ok, RE4 and CV will cost half the price 4 ps+, how much will they cost?

Butters360 said:

September 5th, 9:29 am

And PlayStation Plus continues to pay for itself. Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD will complete my collection ;) Just in time for Halloween too!

JerWolfe said:

September 5th, 9:30 am

So if we bought Plants vs Zombies already, I’m assuming there is no other compensation for buying it? Like PSN credit? Thought not… :(

    Morgan Haro said:

    September 6th, 11:13 am

    No I’m afraid not; but there’s tons of other free content coming this month, as well as the Day 1 discounts on RE4 and RE CV; among many others. Hope you find something you like!

September 5th, 9:33 am

First time in a long time….

I’m proud to be a Plus member.

Wish that RE:DC wasn’t the one with the crappy music though.

killersense said:

Awesome update!!!. PVZ is something I wanted but was not willing to pay for since I have it on my laptop and phone. Thanks

    Great game on any platform and gets surprisingly deep once you get in a few levels; and only gets more challenging / awesome from there.

trustter said:

September 5th, 9:35 am

This is the best time to be a PS+ member!

Thank you very much!

If you can keep up with this you are going to win big!

    Glad you’re excited! We’re constantly looking at ways to make Plus better, so I’m thinking you’ll find it a great value year round.

Ti_dus said:

YungShep said:

kabirdsall14 said:

September 5th, 9:51 am

RESIDENT EVIL 4 FOR 50% OFF!!!!!! I’m so glad I’m a Playstation Plus member. Best $50 I’ve spent.

smintja said:

September 5th, 9:52 am

Looks great. I haven’t played Resident Evil 3 in forever. Will be great to replay it. RE4 is HD right?

    Grace Chen's Avatar

    Morgan Haro said:

    September 6th, 11:18 am

    Yes, RE4 makes the transition to PSN with full HD and Trophy support. Have fun!

KwietStorm said:

September 5th, 9:53 am

Can we please get a firmware update with a categorized download list. PS3 games, PSP games, minis, avatars, themes, DLC, qore, and a download all button for each.

And also PSone classics Die Hard Trilogy, MDK, Return Fire, Soul Blade, and Tenchu.

Oshnaj said:

September 5th, 9:56 am

I’m afraid RE4 is not HD.

Moosehole said:

September 5th, 9:57 am

Just had to say thanks for the RE4 and RE:CVX sales. Thats going to save me $20! I really hope they dont have Capcom’s horrible DRM, though.

Bulletstorm next week intrigues me as well. All depends on the price, though. If its $20 I’ll buy it instantly. If its $30 or more, forget about it.

Now that’s what I’m talking about!!!

EvoAnubis said:

September 5th, 10:03 am

Bloody hell! Like I didn’t have ENOUGH to play this fall…never thought having too many games would be a bad thing.

So, I’m stuck between saying “Thanks, Sony,” and saying, “Sony, do you NOT UNDERSTAND that eventually I DO need to sleep and eat and work and all that!?!?”

Wow. All joking aside, this is awesome.

Bjarno86 said:

September 5th, 10:03 am


Of course it’s HD. Resident Evil HD Collection contains RE4 and RE:Code Veronica X, released seperately on PSN.


KwietStorm said:

September 5th, 10:04 am

What auto update issue do people keep talking about?
