PlayStation Plus Update: Borderlands Coming to Instant Game Collection September 4th

Morgan Haro's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

It’s been quite a week for PlayStation Plus since the last time we chatted. Earlier we announced that Plus will be coming to PS Vita and that it will also be getting an upgrade in Online Game Save storage (from 150MB to a beefy 1GB). We’ll have news for you on when these will hit and what these updates will be all about soon enough; until then, let’s take a look at some of the great discounts coming in at the end of the month, and let’s welcome PS3 Full Game Borderlands into the Instant Game Collection in September! It’s a lot to take in so without further ado, let’s get into the preview for the August 28th and September 4th PlayStation Plus updates.

One more question!

Do you know when Dead Space 2 is going to be released for PS+? Please reply is very important!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

August 31st, 7:55 pm

Finally you guys listened thanks I was w8ing forever for this game I sold mine copy a long time ago I still have all the DLCS…This was one title I was Hoping to get during my Subscription. You guys didn’t let me down. Looks like PS Plus is back!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

August 31st, 8:01 pm

Can plus provide us with more variety in Avatars? I’m tired of using the same ol ones all the ones they come with the Playstation are terribly bad. Is it possibly for you guys to give us Uncharted 3 that would make my year but I’d easily settle for Motorstorm Apocalpyse Ultimate anyday. -_- I actually ordered that and sony got hacked and the server rollback they jacked the price too high I couldn’t afford it. :( So I ended up getting Plus for 1 year and Modnation Racers/DLCS. I ordered Blackops Ultimate and Motorstorm Apocalpyse Sony was unable to find the logs in my account and I got ripped my Full Game Purchases I was very upset. I’m satisfied with your Selection and can’t wait to play Borderlands again until I can Afford Borderlands 2.

Thanks Sony! Don’t even bother listening to those people complaining “I already have this game.” I still haven’t played Borderlands, and this is great for those of us that haven’t. Too many people on here asking for games that they want, as if PS Plus was an personal service made for each person. Sure EU maybe getting some better games right now, but in the past US had better games, and later on the US may get better games than EU. Stop complaining about these things because I’m sure it will all balance itself out. Besides EU and US are different entities, so as long we get quality games in each region, I think people should be a little more grateful. One thing I do recommend for all of PS Plus, is to include more Sony published games. Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Uncharted or even some of the older titles of Sony’s big games like Heavy Rain would seriously convince people to not only PSN Plus, but also PS3s I think. Imagine an already interested customer reading about those kinds of games available. Even Xbox Live members would be impressed and think about that yearly fee going towards those high quality exclusives.

The_Wheelman_IV said:

August 31st, 10:13 pm

I surprised no one is asking about GTA5 if that would go on Plus for us sometime in the near future. GTA5 is gonna be so epic.

The_Wheelman_IV said:

August 31st, 10:27 pm

I got a Problem! I will tell you guys don’t buy Dragon Age Origins in Plus that Game something is wrong with it! It has so much lag possibly the worst PC console port ever. I totally want a refund on my purchase but it’s Sony’s Policy all Sales are Final well I’m very annoyed that was 20 dollars I didn’t have to burn. The Game is great except for the lag thing which is a constistant problem and I thought Skyrim was bad this lag is worst than Two Worlds 2. I feel like I got ripped off from Sony and these Ripoff Gaming companies who should know better to release a game in this unfinished State. Do you think I can get a Refund this once on the game? It’s been a week or so since purchase. It’s Unplayable lag. seriously I’ve tried tweaking the ps3 to get better FPS and still nothing. This game should not be for sale in PSN in this Condition I would like PSN to remove this game so other people don’t get ripped off. I’m new to the forums and really don’t know who to tell this too or how I should work it can you MODs process my request that PSN should remove this game and if possible and you refund me on my purchase???

The_Wheelman_IV said:

August 31st, 10:29 pm

I would like to get Dragon Age 2 instead cause it has no known lag problems to speak off. That cost the same I would like to swap them out. I even have all the DLCS for DAO so I’m really ticked off that I just can’t play the game cause of the annoying lag problems.

The_Wheelman_IV said:

August 31st, 10:29 pm

@+ ARIES-5I I agree 100%

ZiKaRiO_787 said:

August 31st, 11:07 pm

Guess I will just renew with the 3 month instead of the year, to see if the service improves or not.

If someone knows if it is possible to subscribe to the EU plus without a new account please do let me know.

Anyway to have these games downloaded to my PS3 (80 GB) and then transferred to an external HD? I cannot have all of my digital games on my PS3 HD. Please respond with either the way to be able to do this or whether or not there will be a way for us who purchased the system before the 160 and 320 GB systems came out. Thank you lots in advance! Love, love, LOVE PS+ !!!!

DarkOmen1110 said:

September 1st, 12:47 pm

Awww, darn. I’ve already got Borderlands and all DLC. It’s an old game by now, but I’m sure it’s good timing from a marketing perspective with Borderlands 2 around the corner.

I’m shocked to hear of the continued deluge of goodies for gamers across the pond while US gamers aren’t even being thrown a couple of old PS2 classics. I still got my money’s worth from the original E3 Instant Game Collection, but I’m not feeling the PS+ love at the moment.

I’m also hoping that the induction of the Vita into PS+ will not mean further dilution of service for those of us who aren’t interested in the handheld.

September 1st, 7:32 pm

the only problem i have with this update is i wasted $60 on borderlands back when it first came out and the next day i took it to gamestop and traded it because i couldnt stand it….so needless to say im gonna have to sit back and wait and see if the next update is worth it or not…another time that europe is better

danzrule99 said:

September 2nd, 8:19 am

Thanks for the great update! Keep up the good work you guys. I love PS+, hope to see more full PS3 games in the future.

Hello …..
i just know that it was SHANK2 for free , is there any way to get it now?

HELP please ….


manimal0430 said:

September 2nd, 1:22 pm

ive been loyal to sony through ps1 ps2 and now ps3 i dont think im going to fall for the hub bub of ps4 because the “deals” are seeming like less and less of deals to me and more like just an easy way to make re-released ps2 titles and crappy ps3 games like the walking dead and infamous these are second or third rate games at best and sony keeps putting them on the ps+ for free well if they werent fifty bucks i might buy one resident evil 5 was the best game ive ever played resident evil 6 will be the last one i ever buy im leaving sony for either pc or xbox360 all because i paid 20 dollars to see the same nine games on ps+ for three months sony is ridiculous for that and thanks for the last fifteen years or so but i gotta go with the sensible choice

manimal0430 said:

September 2nd, 1:33 pm

you are not looking at the big picture gaming isnt about pushing buttons its about being entertained by puzzles, good graphics,story lines that make you think youre really a part of whats going on, the urgency of beating a time limit or the nervousness of being “killed” in a game you are supposed to be able to submerge yourself into the process of playing a game and borderlands is like cod meets little big planet this game should never have been released let alone sequeled sony knows that by looking at the re-sales and returns of that game im an adult and i dont want to play childrens games i paid 300$ for the experience of gaming my kids didnt pay a dime yeah they should have something but what about people that actually spend the money shouldnt we get something? im complaining the games theyve been posting atleast for the last three months suck!

xperiagamekid said:

September 2nd, 1:56 pm

I was hoping red dead redemption would come out for Playstation plus . At least its a good game thats coming out Playstation plus Subscribers .

starwars300 said:

September 2nd, 3:08 pm

WOW! PSN is putting a ton of wrk into plus and i love it, not only on ps3 but for vita as well Amazing! I got plus as soon as E3 was over with, and though my wallet is tight i put as much as i can into plus because the more
i put in the more i get out. Thanks guys at PSN for many years of great gaming and the years to come. P.S. I would like to know if there would be any ps move games coming to instant collection if you cannot say or do not know you need not reply…

drwstr688 said:

September 3rd, 8:29 am

i dont understand why people have to complain about free stuff, i for one think that all the free games have well been worth what i paid for the years subscription to PS+ keep up the good work

Pjcool44_OG_Jr said:

September 3rd, 10:48 am

i think that psn should put gta sanandreas out 4 free on playstation plus……most likely it woud be a big hit

DelMurice said:

September 3rd, 11:36 am

Borderlands isn’t my kind of game, neither was anything last month. I suggest you start offering more genre’s. I haven’t even touched my PS3 since july because nothing has interested me. goodbye plus.


September 3rd, 12:49 pm

I want to see the old school sega genesis classic Herzog Zwei and add online play. Such a simple game but so addicting.


September 3rd, 3:06 pm

Alright honestly im tired of seein people complain about what games PS+ brings out cuz u r gettin one hell of a deal any way so y don u GTFU and be patient, if u dont like this month then wait for next month if not then cancel ur PS+. Also just remember these people r nice enough to give us free games with PS+ but they dont have to!!!!! GROW UP!!!!

P.S. If u cud possibly get all the Suikoden games put on the PS Store that wud b nice. I mean u have the first one for PS1 but theres still the second game on PS1 and 4 more games for PS2 THANK YOU!!!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 3:29 am

Okay it’s the 4th now where is Borderlands at? I can’t wait to play it again on my ps3!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 3:33 am

GTA SA? Are you kidding me that game sucks without Mods. I recommend The Genra that got me into Buying a Playstation and that was Jak and Daxter give us the HD Collection Plus -PLEASE or I’ll settle with RE5 Gold! We need to be well trained to deal with a Zombie Apocalpyse that is coming soon. Oh I know! Is there anyword if the United States Plus Members we’ll beable to pick up Motorstorm Apocalpyse in the near future? I’m still Bedazzeled by just the 1hour trial of it. What an Amazing game! Graphics are Spectular!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 3:35 am

Another dumb comment they aren’t techically FREE GAMES you still pay to have a membership. PS PLUS is the VIP club for Paystationaholics like myself. lol no typo. I coined the Phrase Paystation 3 instead of Playstation 3 XD

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 3:41 am

Awww, darn. I’ve already got Borderlands and all DLC. It’s an old game by now, but I’m sure it’s good timing from a marketing perspective with Borderlands 2 around the corner.

exactly what I was thinking of Marketing Ploy…Ingenius No? I’m gonna pick up Borderlands 2 from sum sucker who’s a Zombie just sneak in their home and Raid him, he won’t miss it. XD While I’m at It I’ll snatch up the Zombieland 2 DVD as well. -_-

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 3:45 am

I was the smart one and bought the DLCS a long time ago – YES!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 3:57 am

Okay I really need an EDIT comments or DELETE comments button! Anyway I’m submitted my request for a refund so far Sony has been Spectacular on Customer Service support!

The_Wheelman_IV said:

September 4th, 4:05 am

Whoa man w8 a second what was wrong with Borderlands? It was a great coop/online post apocalpytic adventure game so what maybe it was a little dumbed down than say the big hitting titles like Fallout 3 at the time. But it offered Muitplayer and Beautiful Cell Shaded Graphics. And Claptrap. What is not to Love about Borderlands? each Game you start is different sometimes you’ll start off with superior weaponry and the game will get easy but it’s not always like that! Give it a couple of play threws I’m sure you’ll have a change of though. Borderlands is a Retail Hit and they aren’t paying me to say this! LOL!

mman1235 said:

September 4th, 5:57 am

when is the next update for the PS+ content? and the store content too?
will there be early access to PSASBR beta??? plz answer me :(

TheNamesMurk said:

September 4th, 6:16 am

Hey when is the update with borderlands going to be active? its 9/4 and its not there :[

steerpike1701 said:

September 4th, 7:15 am

It’s great that Borderlands is coming to PS+ this month, now where is it? I came home today and turned on my PS3 looking forward to playing it again before the sequel is released and all I see are a few sub-par games I can get. No offense, but are your previous announcements and posts false? I just renewed my subscription mainly for the fact that Borderlands was going to be on here…any more recent news on this subject?

TrickishDonkey said:

September 4th, 7:22 am

For me games don’t get out till around 3-5 pm est. so i am in no hurry to see it this early in the morning.

DarkEagle612 said:

September 4th, 7:26 am

I’m not really sure what everyone is fussing about. You bought the subscription knowing there would be some things you already own! Why not enjoy the free psn titles you don’t have and play a different game until something you like comes out? If you don’t like the games, go play something else. You’re not obligated to buy PS+, it’s not like its expensive, you’re paying to get free games, quit complaining.

I for one got PS+ because I saw an opportunity to get my hands on a few games I wouldn’t buy otherwise, sure I already owned a few, but I paid for them a long time ago, knowing that there would be much better deals on them down the road, so I made the choice to enjoy them then instead of now. If I do end up enjoying the rental from here, I’ll go buy a disc copy.

Anyways, I’m loving being able to finally plat Space Marine, and getting Borderlands as well is just awesome! Keep up the good work! Can’t wait to see what’s next!


September 4th, 7:44 am

PSN Plus in EU will receive Red Dead Redemption today….

crimson690 said:

September 4th, 8:34 am

Think we could possibly get something like kingdom hearts or some more final fantasy for ps2 sometime soon? Cant wait for borderlands. Looking forward for some new games to play.

hail_donsee said:

September 4th, 9:11 am

Do we have Borderlands now???!!!
I checked earlier before I left home and its still not in Plus free games…

zeussv said:

September 4th, 9:34 am

definetely Europe has a lot better service than US, even if we are receiving free games, we paid for a subscriptions the same way they did and the service should be even.

Dijitaal2012 said:

September 4th, 9:46 am

Nice! Another game that I already own! Are you guys looking off my purchase history to see what games to put on plus? Thats 3 months in a row! My plus subscriribtion is up this month. Needless to say I wont be wasting anymore money on it. I used to actually get games I didnt own before this instant game collection garbage! And seriously? 1 game? Peace out playstation plus!

wethead42 said:

September 4th, 10:01 am

some of you in patient people dont get it. sony is working hard trying to find the best free games for ps+. the game borederlands just cant happen in a snap it takes time maybe later around 3pm and 5pm or today or tommorrow. it just takes time.

howieLXIX said:

September 4th, 10:44 am

Can’t wait. I got a used copy a little while back for $16. Now, from what I’m reading above, I’ll be able to get the game (free) and all of the add-ons for $10. Sweet.

Scorpio0018 said:

September 4th, 11:07 am

Personally, I think Borderlands is a brilliant choice to be put on PS+. Others have suggested that it is cutting close to the release of Borderlands 2, which in a way is true…but it is also brilliant because of that.

People who may not have had the change to play the original will likely do so now, and should they enjoy the game, it would likely cement their choice to purchase Borderlands 2 on or near its release.

I am quite happy with these offerings. This is my first time using PS+ and so far I have been satisfied.

I think we should all take a step back and be happy we get discounts and special deals like free titles, rather than being jaded or indifferent. Just saying.

NYShotgun05 said:

September 4th, 11:11 am

Meanwhile EU gets Red Dead Redemption……Dead Space 2…..MotorStorm Apocalypse and many more.

Copperman67 said:

September 4th, 12:38 pm

Its September 4th and Boarderlands is still not on PSN typical Sony slow slow slow slow slow slow slow

sensfan1971 said:

September 4th, 12:44 pm

just remember that store usually updates around 5 pm est….and for those that say it is too close to borderlands 2 coming remember some content unlocks for those who beat the 1st game

TrickishDonkey said:

September 4th, 12:47 pm

They never said what time they would update the store. So they have till close to 12:00 am. And like someone said for me they don’t update till around 5pm est for me at least.

goldboy11 said:

September 4th, 2:01 pm

The__Confessor said:

September 4th, 2:33 pm
