PlayStation Plus Update: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 40% Off, PS3 Plus Bundle

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

October is just about over, but before we say goodbye to this month (which brought Payday: The Heist, NFL Blitz, and King of Fighters XIII free to PS Plus members), we wanted to point out a great new PlayStation 3 Bundle only on that includes one year of PlayStation Plus.

PS3 Plus Bundle

Get the PS3 Bundle with 1 Year of PS Plus

If you know anyone who has yet to dive into PlayStation 3, this might be a great item to recommend (or buy them if you’re feeling generous). With a one year membership of PS Plus included, this bundle will keep anyone plenty busy with great games, awesome discounts, and exclusive access to PS3 features throughout that first year with Plus.

Now then, let’s greet some of those great PS Plus discounts that will help you take your gaming dollar further.

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or click here to get access.

With an amazing brawler engine designed to give your character unique abilities to tackle waves of enemies, it captures the look and feel of the anime; complete with the original Japanese VO. It’s only on PSN, so grab it today. It could be just the purchase to put you over the $100 October spend limit to get $20 back in November.

SEGA keeps reminding us of their amazing classic gaming roots with another $1 PS Plus gem.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz – Complete DLC Bundle

80% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular price: $1.99, PS Plus Price: $0.40)

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz released last week on PS Vita. If you like what you’ve played so far, it’s a no-brainer to pick up the Complete DLC Bundle! This bundle includes all 8 pieces of DLC; each of which enhances the Custom Level Creator to create all-new maps using fun pieces with plenty of references to SEGA’s classic games and systems.

It’s been a few months since my membership has lapsed and I have yet to see a reason for me to sign back up. If I lived in Europe, I would still be a member. If you expect me to sign back I up, I’ll need to a lot more of the quality of games your putting out now or better games. Your come back for 7 days promotion you sent to me was a joke, I didn’t even use the code. Don’t expect a response; hope you start to do better soon. Best wishes.

Nice going Sony! Only one month after the release of One Piece you guys give a big discount and also comes up with the “$100 October spend limit to get $20 back in November.” Pretty damn sad for me who spent more than 100 bucks buying One Piece and Max Payne 3 at launch.

Yep… I am pissed.

damn comment was longer than 1,250 characters, so it was deleted? FU Sony! If you can’t take criticism then don’t ask for comments.

To all you complainers,

It’s real simple. If you don’t like the service, let it expire and don’t get it again. You like the EU version so much better, then get THAT version.

It’s funny, not too long ago people in Europe were moaning and whining about their version of Plus and PSN in general being weak and not getting certain games and discounts. Now the North American owners are doing the same thing. I hope some of you actually DO jump to the EU version. Because the moment you do, via karma, the U.S. version will get a bunch of stuff and then the whining will continue.

I’m sorry but for $50 a year, you’re getting an insane amount of stuff. And anyone being mad they didn’t add another free game to end October is just greedy. They gave us 3 “free” games already this month. Payday, KOF 13, and I forgot the other game.

All I’m going to say is I’ll be resubscribing when mine expires.

Dubloon7 said:

October 29th, 11:37 am

is it possible to use a PS+ membership in the US and 1 in the EU? or say JP? if EU and JP receive better free/discounted than the US then i would rather spend my money in that market than this US garbage.

on a side note, is it possible to switch over remaining balance for PS+ to the EU servers?

greggysmalls1 said:

October 29th, 11:37 am

Not to fuel the fire, but is it possible for someone in the us to jump to the eu version of ps plus? Just curious. I also want to clarify that I’m optimistic that US plus will catch up very soon and overall I think the service is much better that what the competition in the US is offering.

BlueBl1zzard said:

October 29th, 11:38 am

Wow…people complaining about this PS Plus update not being specifically tailored to their every need, what else is new? There’s nothing in this update that particularly interests me, but I’m ok with that. I have more important things to worry about, what am I going to play first tomorrow? ACIII, AC:Liberation, Need for Speed, or Ragnarok Odyssey? Oh and the people affected by hurricane Sandy stay safe.

sebcastg said:

October 29th, 11:38 am

Morgan. well as other users plus, I have some criticisms regarding the service. is understandable that for licenses all games published in Europe cant be pusblished héroe in usa, but i dont se Any future solution from You to rectify the abysmal difference. Your coments about this are always the same, we want facts not promises. I hope your solution is not another double dragon or king of fighter, we want Full retail games. Sometimes less its better

What happened to pulse? Lol haven’t gotten an update since july? It’s fine if it was canceled but to my knowledge there is no info…

    October 29th, 1:45 pm

    I can confirm that Pulse is no longer in production. The final episode was released in July 2012. While we don’t have an announcement for a new video program at this time, we’re always taking a look at new programming opportunities to deliver the latest updates.

Dubloon7 said:

October 29th, 11:39 am


Can you please back up anything you just wrote? any sources to show EU complained? what were they specifically complaining about?


CZOOM01 said:

October 29th, 11:39 am

Hi Morgan,

Just want to know if there was any chance we will get any of these games free within the coming weeks? A lot are older games. A nice Mix Of Games that should be plus bound. Also a few good Ideas for your team.

Papa and Yo
Super Stardust HD
Resistance Series – (Any of them)
Resident Evil 4 HD or 5
Dead Space 2
Motor Storm Apocolpse
Wipeout HD
Critter Crunch
Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty
Joe Danger
Rayman Origins
PixelJunk Eden
Worms 2: Armageddon
Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3
Heavenly Sword
Twisted Metal (Maybe Free Single Player) (We pay for Multiplayer, like what you guys did with starhawk)

I ended up voting for “Weekly” PS+ announcements instead of for “Both” however I feel the best way is to give a comprehensive monthly list of all the things coming to PS+ for the month (free games, discounts,…) but during the each week when you are offering a new free game there should be a ‘headsup’ post that week as a reminder. This is because the whiners really come out in full force whenever you make a PS+ blog post and there aren’t free games (like this week).

Pariah_Dark said:

October 29th, 11:41 am


Back up what I say? Dude, you’re so well versed on the EU version of Plus, why don’t you do that yourself?.

And I said “not too long ago” as in before.

Brklynty1 said:

October 29th, 11:41 am

Hey Morgan, just wanted to ask if you know if the AC3+Liberation+Season Pass Bundle is a pre-order bundle, a limited time bundle or a permanent bundle?

Dubloon7 said:

October 29th, 11:43 am

i’m looking for a used copy of Dragon’s Dogma. Anyone have a copy they want to get rid of? PM me what you want for it. thanks!

and Heavenly Sword, looks OKAY, but just too hear Fringe’s Anna Torv talk makes me happy in the pants. She’s too sexy!! I hope she’s back for All-Stars, which I am not getting cuz it looks and plays like ripped-off Nintendo garbage

natey2k4 said:

October 29th, 11:43 am

Wow, that’s the last time I EVER pre-order something from the Playstation Store.

Bought Fan Axxess when it arrived for $20 and now it’s $10 before the game even releases?

What a slap in the face.

Dubloon7 said:

October 29th, 11:44 am

and i’m looking for a used Vita copy of Little Big Planet Vita if anyone wants to sell theirs.

PM me again.


Dubloon7 said:

October 29th, 11:45 am


Can’t you cancel your preorder and just buy it for the $10?

NovaChronicle said:

October 29th, 11:46 am

Those of you asking about switching to EU PS+ the answer is yes and no. No in that you cant switch to EU PS+ on your account if you have US PS+ since you have a US PSN. Yes in that if you make/have a EU Psn then you can ‘switch’ to/get EU PS+.
ill be keeping my US PS+ and renew it when the time comes.

natey2k4 said:

October 29th, 11:47 am

@ Dubloon7

No, it’s DLC. So I paid the full $19.99 for the DLC like last week when they put it up, so I’d have it when the game releases. Now a week later, before the game even releases (releases tomorrow), they price drop it to $10.

Not very fair tactics, if you ask me.

Neonwarrior said:

October 29th, 11:47 am

@102 Have you ever gone to the store and bought something? Every store I’ve bought stuff from will give you back whatever the difference is if you show them the receipt obviously if something goes one sale 2-3 months after you bought it’s it’s different but I bought a brand new Plasma TV then 3 weeks later it went on sale I brought my receipt and showed it to them they gave me 100$ back which is how much it went on sale.

I find it funny that the kids crying about what’s coming to plus & they haven’t even finished there other games pathetic.

LilRican said:

still hoping for a resident evil year……

DWilson8504 said:

October 29th, 11:48 am

@ Dangisuckatgamin (#102)

Actually most retailers will price adjust within 30 days if it’s a sale that they put on. I’ve actually done that with a couple retailers in the past. It’s only been 2 weeks in this case. The point is that if you put something up for sale and then change the price less than a month later, that’s a scam. It’s a rip-off. They did the same thing with Walking Dead. Many people bought Episodes 1 and 2 and then BAM! A couple weeks later they were both free. Not cool.

detictiveconan said:

October 29th, 11:51 am

You know, I used to recommend PS+ to people as the best best value in game.
Now I think I will start recommending people stay away from it since It seems to have become nothing more then a way to get people to buy DLC.

swavage415 said:

October 29th, 11:52 am

Why is there no mention of what the sale price will be for Catherine? It would help if the drop(the flop) or your blog showed us everything thats coming out along with how big the files are and how much they will all be. I’m guessing since i am going to buy the legend of dead kel for KA that it will go on sale next month. Why doesn’t ps plus give us a free movie rental once in awhile?

Dubloon7 said:

October 29th, 11:53 am


How do you know they haven’t finished their games?games nowadays are made cheap so they’re shorter and lesser quality. just look at the minis. Sony doesn’t really support those, if they did they would provde wqith trophies, which are the selling point IMO.

israelsuarez said:

October 29th, 11:53 am

What happened to getting Red Dead Redemption for FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nergil said:

October 29th, 11:54 am


It’s almost as pathetic as complaining about other people complaining and not knowing the difference between their and there

Major_Hoare said:

October 29th, 11:57 am


PS+ is still the best value in gaming. $50 for like $800 worth of “free” games a year is great value but the service can’t go for like 3 weeks without giving away a new free game or people start moaning.

Nothing really bad to say, just that this PS+ content isn’t for me. Thanks Sony, really looking forward to tomorrow’s PSN update!! Hopefully we get an early update.

Ryumoau said:

October 29th, 12:00 pm

REALLY?!!! You give us a discount on the WWE 13 fan access a week AFTER i get it? Not too mention i spent $50 on One Piece the week it came out.

I am so sick and tired of Sony America not announcing things much earlier. God i can’t stand how incompetent you guys are sometimes. This is just as bad as earlier this year when you gave Plus members Infamous 2 and Just Cause 2 free a week after people bought them.

Is it really THAT hard to announce your plus deals weeks in advance to alert people? No wonder why people are trying to get a European plus subscription. They seem to actually know what the hell they are doing and announce things earlier.


October 29th, 12:01 pm

Morgan can you please tell me are we gonna get the new store tomorrow. Becsue I was told from a post that I put on there blo they replyed back it shoud be thsi week or next week.

Ryumoau said:

October 29th, 12:03 pm

So annoyed by this BS. Please just go back to monthly updating, so we’ll at least know what we get at one time. Sony America seems too incompetent to handle weekly updates properly.

DubReno said:

October 29th, 12:04 pm

…So fan axxess for WWE’13 will be discounted for PS+ on release, yet they have the download available to purchase already, and as a PS+ member wanted to get it before the game came out, I get screwed out of $9.99? Thanks Sony, real classy.

CrusaderForever said:

October 29th, 12:04 pm

The only thing PS+ fails on is giving different games to different regions. PS+ could be an epic winner if everyone in the world got the same free games. No one, no one in the world would ever complain about PS+ again. Scratching my head trying to figure out why Sony differentiates between regions content? Truth be told, I paid $50 for PS+ for 1 year and I can honestly say it has paid for itself 5 fold if not more. So I really love the service I just don’t understand a few things in regards to the service.

Thanks Sony, you know I am a huge fan! :)

HyakuShiki08th said:

@ Ryumoau

That reminds me…. I bought Just Cause 2… three days later? Free for Plus.

Infinite FACE PALM.

Squiggle55 said:

October 29th, 12:04 pm

I voted for weekly, even though I am not opposed to adding an additional “monthly outlook” post. I voted for weekly because I really enjoy spreading out the content this way and having some surprises to look forward to every week, as well as how responsive and interactive you are with the community on your Monday posts, Morgan.

If you were to switch to a system with a montly outlook post and lump together Monday’s weekly plus updates with Tuesday’s Store Update post, I would be okay with the idea as long as the plus content itself was still spread out and someone like you, Morgan, was responding to the weekly post instead of someone like Rey for Sunday’s The Drop where there is no back and forth.

As far as this week is concerned the Sega $1 game is the only thing for me again. Love those sega deals.

greggysmalls1 said:

October 29th, 12:07 pm

I think a lot of people voted for weekly updates because more sounds better at first, but monthly is clearly the way to go. Otherwise people will see a small weekly update that doesn’t really have much for them and then they curse ps+ even though there’s more content on the way for the month

MatheusRuggeri said:

October 29th, 12:07 pm

“We’ll be back next week with an all new PS3 Full game to bring to Plus members”
Every week we wait for the next week.

Why Sony do not give us:


That is only for europa?

@US People :b

Many EU People want the Games the US Store have.
Okay, i Not. xD But other People from EU. xD

This want I say :b

Thanks for reading. :D

Sorry, my English is not so good. XD

Ryumoau said:

October 29th, 12:08 pm

@76 same here. If they had done their job and informed us of this type of discount before we purchased the game it would have saved ALOT of people good money. I wish i could get a refund on my purchases on the WWE 13 fan axxess and One Piece. Better yet a refund on the $50 i wasted on the stupid NA Plus membership.

macsmoke84 said:

October 29th, 12:10 pm

I want to know what I am going to get for the month so if I need to renew my plus and there is something that I want iI can renew without wasting my money for that month and not get nothing .

Ryumoau said:

October 29th, 12:12 pm

@144 i don’t get why anyone in their right mind would prefer weekly updates as opposed to Sony letting us know monthly. These weekly updates screw people over because they keep giving us discounts on games AFTER we’ve bought it because we were unaware.

If you want both a monthly and weekly reminder, thats find. But just a weekly update is stupid.

ojha_cojek said:

October 29th, 12:13 pm

Well, I am just waiting for PS Plus for Vita. And hope that it will come with nice set of free games :) as I am going to get 1y subscription. Just please let it be early in November :) just cant wait anymore! And a question: Does it matter if I buy psn card with cash and buy subscription on Vita or should I buy a psn plus card and use the code?

Brooklyn__85 said:

October 29th, 12:15 pm
