PlayStation Plus January Sneak Peek: Free Back to the Future – Full Series, Discounts Galore

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by VP, PlayStation Network

Happy New Year from the PlayStation Plus team! As many of you know, PlayStation Plus is the subscription service from PlayStation Network that gets you access to free games, huge discounts, and great exclusives across the network. And we’re kicking off the New Year in a big way!


This month’s spotlight free PSN Game is none other than Telltale’s Back to the Future The Game – Full Series. All of the episodes from this acclaimed adventure game are available for you to download starting with the January 3rd PlayStation Store update. We’re also including PSN Game Sword and Soldiers with tomorrow’s update. This side-scrolling strategy game lets you control an entire army while wielding devastating magical abilities.

Free PS one Classics make their rounds this month in the form of the original Syphon Filter games. Syphon Filter 1, 2 and 3 will be available free, for the entire month starting also with the next Store update.

The PlayStation Store regularly holds events and sales for all PSN members throughout the year, and Plus always gives an extra leg-up in taking advantage of these sales. This month is no different as we’re gearing up to launch our 12 for ’12 sale. 12 PSN Games to kick of 2012 will be on sale for one week starting Jan 17th. We can’t reveal what the games are just yet, but if you love PSN games, you’re going to see a lot of great first-time sales on titles and get them 50% off with PlayStation Plus.

You’ll find plenty more in the way of discounts this month on standout titles like Crysis, Burnout Crash!, Gatling Gears and more. Check the full list below and remember these are expected games and discounts for Plus. Some content and/or release dates outlined may change including the addition or removal of content. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or continue the discussion on the PlayStation Community forums in the Official PlayStation Plus Update thread.

First, some background information. My PS+ subscription has never expired, and I’ve been a steadfast PS+ user since day one. However, even after I renewed my subscription (months in advance), my PS+ games did not auto-renew and now I cannot even access them (they give a “Content Expired” message) nor can I re-download them again. I thought the games you got with your PS+ membership stay with your subscription – why have my games expired?

    Hey there,

    Please feel free to PM me in the forums. I’m ‘mochuuu’

    I’d like to know a bit more about the issue you’re stating. It might be linked to a very rare issue, but we can work to get it addressed. Your games in your sub that you’ve downloaded before should always be accessible as long as you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

I was kind of hoping Silent Hill 1 would be free since Silent Hill HD Collection (2 and 3) will be released at the end of the month. Silent Hill: Downpour and some PS Vita Silent Hill will be out soon too. I thought maybe they would have done it like they did with Resident Evil 1-3 when RE4 HD came out.

Darksiders and Dante’s Inferno are as good as mine. I’m looking at a couple of other titles listed here too. I can’t wait for the 12 for 12 sale. Something tells me I’ll be another 4-5 games heavier come Jan 17. Thanks for all the efforts to deliver great content to us PS fans. Keep up the good work!

Would be nice to get a different game of Risk already. The online is broken, no one is buying it except trophy hunters and late ps3 buyers. I had to point it out to a friend before he found it infact. would like to see EA & Sony team up to release a new Risk game. Even an older version would be nice! classic risk! It really sucks I can’t play with friends online though. A friend of mine, his girlfriend and another friend of mine were hanging out and wanted to play against me. It wouldn’t let me, even in an unranked match! We need a need Risk game, seriously. As much fun as the game is, it needs a sequel and also more of a classic approach take as an extra game mode or seperate game. I can’t play the PC versions online with friends. Those are fun!

I would like to see Silent Hill (ps1) for free on ps plus and a ps plus discount for Deathspank 2 as well. I’d like to buy both at the same time, on sale.

Nice!! Very good games. I’ve done the download from Back the Future. Now I hope the promotions 12 X 12. =]

I have a question regarding Darksiders. I was informed that the retail version of the game was something like 20GB in size, but from what I saw on the PlayStation Store, it’s only 10GB. That’s half the size of the retail version, happened there? Did the game have some of its contents removed or something?

You see, I seriously would like to purchase this game now since I couldn’t when it first came out, but I can’t do that without knowing for sure that I’m not getting an inferior version of the game.

I have a suggestion.. While every month offers awesome perks for Plus subscribers, and I have totally loved my membership, I wish there was a “rain check” option for offers missed. I didn’t have an opportunity to go on the network at all in December due to family illness, technical issues with my home network set-up, and just general Holiday time madness, and oh man, I missed what would have been my best month! I love the Tomb Raider and Spyro series.. and I missed my opportunity to own Underworld and the entire Spyro Series. Crap.. crap.. crap!!!!!! Not to mention, I would have been able to get Brotherhood on sale. Again Crap!!! Triple Crapola!!!! I’m so upset! I can’t believe my poor luck!!! ARRGggh!!

I haven’t seen an RPG since Costume Quest (which only partially counts). C’mon.. it’s a Japanese console; show some Japanese love.

I have been a plus subscriber for a short time now, i got the december and jaunary stuff and im really happy with my subscription, but i guess it would be truly amazing to have just FF VII or MGS instead of a pack of three PSone classics, even though the ones that i have the chance to get gave me a lot of fun when i was a kid, im hoping to see the MGS HD Colection on the PSS and im really expecting a discount or give away of MGS1 like the one with the RE4 when hit the PSS. Just wanted to say thanks and give (i hope so) a little bit of feed back.

So where’s that theme that was supposed to come out for plus yesterday (The Abstract Art dynamic one)?

i know its only another 2.50 for the capcom bundle but seriously why advertise something as 10 and then charge 25% more for it.
