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.

Wow, looks like i won’t be keeping Plus when mine runs out in October. We aren’t get very good games compared to Europe.

I mean seriously? 1 game? What happened to the Minis? The ps1 classics? 1 Old ps3 game doesn’t make up for it.

@Pixie_Stix_88 – Yup, same here. Mine ended on September 1st and I didn’t renew it. Got myself a EU PS+ Account instead. Well worth the Sub IMO.

so what’s the point in having seperate updates for Eu and US? everywhere people were talking about red dead redemption, i had 4 friends and we were very excited… now here we are and it’s only for Europe? from my limited experience in playstation plus, it seems as though if you don’t live in europe, you’re not really getting a hook up. will there be another update with red dead? yes, i see you said not at this time but you followed it with a smiley face… that smiley face could mean something.

US PS Plus (to me) is now a second rate service.


September 6th, 10:17 am

@ psn USA you guys are so slow this is why im probably 1 out of 30 people who own a vita I don’t understand
Why psp can play all minis & ps1 classics and vita can’t . Still ps plus not on the vita why I don’t know.
This is why I think of xbox when I get stepped on by playstaion why can’t we all get the same update.
I would only understand if only Japan got these cool updates, only because it’s origin is Japan, or it’s these Americans trying to squeeze every penny out of’s always like this and why I don’t know smh I wish I had a England address so I get psn 2nd to Japan

Are games like R&C: All 4 One (and some others) only coming out in the american Ps+ and not in europe, or will they be coming to the EU Ps+ later?

Is there anyway you guys could add Journey for FREE?

It would sure be nice to get some games like the lights, camera, party for free… anything that would be fun and suitable for kids of all ages. 99% of games we’ve got since signing up are rated M and T and all shoot ’em up games for older teens and adults. What about the younger kids? What about good ‘ole fun games that aren’t all about violence and gore? Sure, some of them are fun, but would really like to see some variety. We’re not too up for paying for a service to just pay more (at a discount) in order to get some variety. Thought the plethora of free games would be varied on PLUS.

Oh and one game for the entire month? The rest is just getting us to buy more stuff. :(

Damn… can you tell me why I bought another 3 months of PS+ ?… Only 1 free game this month.. Boring again!

Awesome updates and i guess North America will also have a ps plus discount like europe, will we?


September 17th, 1:15 pm

Would have preferred Borderlands Game Of The Year Edition but I guess that would’ve been too much to ask?

I see that Borderlands full game is $19.99 (great price!) for non Plus but is there a discount for Borderlands DLC to non Plus members? How much for the DLC?
