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.

I don’t understand the big deal over what Europe gets. A lot of those games are very old. Like Red Dead Redemption… it’s $20 new. $30 for the GOTY edition, and you can get it cheaper than that.

Yeah, they aren’t as cheap as they are through Plus, but if you had enough interest in them to be upset that you aren’t getting them, I’m surprised you could hold out for a year, if not years, and pass up the dirt cheap prices these games have gone for. Heck, I could get a good used copy of Crysis 2 for $8 right now.

It’s great for new PS3 owners. It’s a great collection. But that’s why I already bought the ones I had interest in. I can’t imagine waiting 2.5 years for Red Dead Redemption, or well over three years for RE5 especially when they can be found practically everywhere for $20, or less if you keep your eye out for a sale.

I’d much rather see recent games whether they are retail or PSN, that haven’t dropped much beyond their initial launch price, and that I haven’t had an opportunity to buy for cheap. Blitz is a good example. I love the game, but wasn’t willing to spend $15 on it.

I couldn’t wait on the One Piece NA release, so I got it from Japan with the special box set, but at this price, I think I will be happy to download it and play it again in English.

Any idea if it is another trophy set? Thanks for leaving the Japanese VO in there. It fits so much better that way, I think.

I am really looking forward to seeing what Plus will look like on the Vita.

vinardus said:

October 29th, 6:39 pm

Does the vita version of NFS play online with someone else ps3 version of it? My friends will probably get it on ps3 and I’ll probably get the vita one.

By the way, this is the first plus update in october that i really liked. It will never please everyone. Septempber was much better to MY TASTE. Even the EU plus hat a lot of users keep mentioning is not that much better. Red Dead Redemption I have on disc, RE 5 not even for free, Darksiders is the only game EU has that I would want over here (well maybe final fantasy V for vita).

@C-0719 The complain that some are having with PS+ lately is the lack of free games. Use to be you got at least 3 free games a month. A PS1 game, A mini, and a PSN/PS3 game. However, ever since E3 (after all the conferences of how they were improving PS+) we got 13 free games and nothing for the next 3 months. Now that’s not bad as the 13 games lasted for quite awhile, but then people noticed the PS+ getting a little dry and now it’s only one game a month now, if even that. It’s not a good way to get people into signing up for the program, which Sony was all about getting new gamers to join up, and kinda went in the opposite way of doing that.

Crap I have 48 hours to spend $75 so you better be bringing your A game tomorrow!

i live in Australia and i always check this post, Are the Plus perks you mention only for the US ?

BlueBl1zzard said:

October 29th, 6:54 pm

@Heatseeker125 Umm nowhere in my last comment (#287) did I say that that list was exclusively for US PS+, nor did I say that it was better or worse than the EU PS+ lineup. What I was trying to point out was to all the people whining that the US doesn’t get “anything”, in fact it does and pretty good stuff too.

@MrBeatdown you have it completely right

Another disappointing Week….. (2)

SpooNManX said:

October 29th, 6:56 pm

I hate to say it, but this is a WEAK WEEK! :(

Those $1 Sega Classics are really depressing for the 4th week in a row when you bought them all on day one.
Each week is just a new reminder why I shouldn’t have bought them all at once.

I also feel we should have gotten a discount on the expensive Unfinished Swan and Retro City Rampage instead.

You can argue all day that we are getting this stuff for “FREE”, but my VISA bill tells a much different story.
I just paid another $100 for Plus for 2 years of service.

I also originally signed up for the Qore episodes.. Then they get rid of those… I then told myself.. Fine, Pulse is good too and then… *POOF* That’s gone. Even Nintendo has a bi-weekly show on the 3DS, You’re telling me Sony can’t make this work? I don’t believe it.

The only thing i complain, its that US plus costumers get crap, but EU Plus costumers get the good stuff, Why morgan???

Victoryismine52 said:

October 29th, 6:58 pm

@Linklex7 What the Hell are you talking about they released 12 free games at once as part of the instant game collection and have been rotating games into that collection constantly for the last 3 months did you forget about bloodrayn, outland, or the walking dead episodes 1 and 2? they said they will always have 12 games up at all times in the collection and new games will become available every month as old games are dropped from the collection and the way I see it they have been doing a MUCH better job since E3 then they did before it. I have more PS+ games in my backlog then ever before and need to renew just to keep my collection it’s genius!

I wrote a whole awesome comment for you, but my iPhone acted silly and it erased my text :( Long story short, there’s a hurricane outside and when the power comes back on at my house in 2 weeks, I expect to see a friend request from you so I can co-op and play with a fellow PLUS’er ! :)

Stay Dry

swissmr said:

October 29th, 7:14 pm

Well i was hoping for more interesting things for my 100 to spend before the promotion ends…..i know I will renew so 50 is done and now just seeing what to spend the other 50 on…..

I’m going to request something that Morgan prolly wont see..But I’d love for free dynamic themes or discounted themes the ones we get are few and far between…but i know not many people request that sort of thing oh well….:(
maybe we can have one free dynamic theme a week??? wishful thinking

Morgan, have u ever consider get paypal to make it easier for the users buy stuff in the psn?

Diablos2525 said:

October 29th, 7:24 pm

I see a lot of people in these comments complaining about PSN games we’ve gotten for free. PSN games are legitimate games, and if you don’t think so either you haven’t given them a chance, or you are just uninformed or not a REAL gamer. For example, Journey is a PSN game, and for me and many others it is Game of the Year worthy material. I also saw people criticizing BloodRayne, and Outland, both of those games are great. There are tons of amazing PSN games, just because some huge publisher didn’t pour millions of dollars into a game doesn’t mean it’s a bad game. Look at the Witcher 2, and Bastion(xbox), and Tokyo Jungle, Flower, Journey, Fat Princess, Trine 2, Castle Crashers, I could go on forever. I hope you guys see the point, stop being ignorant.

Diablos2525 said:

October 29th, 7:28 pm

would it be possible to receive any themes/avatars as part of PS Plus? I know we have a few, but an ever expanding collection would be awesome! Also would love to see Journey, as a PS PLUS game, I own it but I really want a few of my friends to get into it who have plus. In any case, Plus is definitely worth it, but it can still be better, thank you for all the hard work Morgan and others!

OneBadWood said:

October 29th, 7:30 pm

hey Morgan, i want to let you know i read every week, (first reply however) and i really appreciate all the responses you do! and i know its not your fault that eu has a better plus. But i am hopeful Novemeber will quiet the naysayers (including myself) on the same note please more full retail games like EU. Cant wait for vita info when its available!!

Moofboy said:

October 29th, 7:46 pm

Hey Morgan,
I love PS+. That being said up front, I can understand the frustration that people feel about the weekly updates. Each week you tell us to expect something good next week (like last week for instance), but more often than not it is a letdown to a lot of people. I am really hoping that what you were alluding to last week was not some discounts for games, and that maybe sony’s original intentions fell through. Can you at least be straight with us, or do you really expect people to be hyped over 20% off on some random game? I really think that people would appreciate the honesty. If your hands are tied, respond with an ellipsis.

kiratachibana said:

October 29th, 7:51 pm

Hey Morgan,

Keep up the good work. I know US PS+ might not have what EU is currently offering, but, EU and US are two different regions and have different publishers for the game, so they may make different decision on what games they will let PS + team to offer as free games.

I do get disappointed at times but I am pretty sure you guys are trying to offer things as best as you could.

chucknorris127 said:

October 29th, 8:02 pm

hey playstation + you guys should make MAG (massive action game) free for plus members or just free in general ,the game is almost dead but making it free could make it come back for a bit

Lasdrub said:

October 29th, 8:03 pm

Nice! I was thinking of getting One Piece earlier this month to reach the $100 threshold. It’s a pretty good deal along with the $50 credit for signing up for the PlayStation card. I’ll reach the $100 threshold tomorrow.

Plants vs Zombies ———————————$7.34
Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack —- $3.91
One Piece ——————————————- $40
Ragnarok Odyssey ——————————– $30
Final Fantasy III ————————————- $20
= $101.25

With the $50 credit for signing up along with 10x points with the PlayStation card, and $20 credit for spending $100, it’s like I’m spending $25 for $100 worth of downloads. ($100 – $50 gift card – $20 October promotion credit – $5 in rewards points).

October has been a good month. Bring on Plus for Vita!

Lasdrub said:

October 29th, 8:06 pm

Whoops! mixed up the prices for One Piece and Ragnarok Odyssey. Oh well.

The Instant Game Collection does not have enough genre diversity.
I like turn-based strategy and JSRPG. I feel left out.

holy crap and here i tought i had to pay $20 for my fan axsass man i like was going to get wwe 13 on the lunch date so thanks man keep’em comeing for psn plus :)

October 29th, 8:21 pm

I don’t mind this update…I have like 1k$ worth of games in my PS Plus account already hahaha..I think..
I like the 16-bit Sega game though.. Can’t wait for a great release month.

iTofuMan said:

October 29th, 8:30 pm

While i dont have PS+ anymore with my time with it was rather unjust. i mean too constantly have there been updates that in my eyes werent worth it. Im glad though that you guys are packing a 1 year in new ps3 its a nice gesture especially for new comers to your system.
I will admit though having a discount on the one piece game would be nice as i have interest in the game, yet have no time to buy it or play it right now. Still though i see no reason still to return to PS+. granted i am waiting on more Vita (and hopefully psp) content to come out often. its in direr need of it.


October 29th, 8:36 pm

I love playstation and PS plus, but I’m saying this now. If the next free game is another fighting game, I’m running a strike on my site. I know what you are thinking, oh scary, some small guy site strikes against PSN. Wrong. Try a gaming forum with over 50,000 members. probably almost nothing to ps, but definitely more than enough to cause a noticeable drop in profits.

dlhdav7 said:

October 29th, 8:53 pm

do you guys think your running for president ? you guys dance around every question ! we can’t get a straight answer from you ! i have friends on here from the EU and they even say we are getting dumped on !!!your giving us games we don’t buy ! whats the deal ? is it in your contract that you need so many downloads on a game befor you get paid ? so then you give it as a plus download to fill your quota ? there’s something up with you guys ! and it’s not good ! i would trust a snake not to bite me before i trust you with what your saying Morgan i’m sorry to say !

REALLY!?! The last 2 days of October and not 1 Horror game the entire month? Here I was looking forward to October and at least one Horror Game. Europe gets Resident Evil 5 with all DLC for free. We get Payday (which I deleted after a day), King of Fighter # whatever (again deleted after one play through). WOW!!!! My membership expires next month…guess who’s not renewing? Europe gets mega hits like RE 5, Dead Space 2 and Red Dead. We haven’t got one game of that caliber in an entire year. Can’t wait for you guys to file bankruptcy.

Btw, should I click every free game so I can download it in the future?
Thx !

Exactly. You can find most of the games people are losing their minds over for cheap. I don’t think they know how childish they look spamming over and over in caps makes them look either. I think mommy and daddy need to ban some kiddies from the puter for a while.

ViolentPhlegm said:

October 29th, 10:05 pm

I like weekly Plus updates, but would prefer that they be posted on Wednesday or Thursday. It’s not much of a preview if it’s only one day before the update.

October 29th, 10:06 pm

For all of you who feel abused by sony’s regional politics non-sense, I have compiled a list of full PS3 games in the two regions during the last 4 months (since launching the instant collection program). Is there even a close comparison??
Only in EU:
1-Motorstorm: Apocalypse
3-Deus Ex: Human Revolution
4-Dead Space 2
5-Red Dead Redemption
6-Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
8- Crysis 2

Only in US:
1-Ratchet and Clank: all 4 one
2-Starhawk (half a game only)
3-King of Fighters XIII

In both regions:
1-Infamous 2
2-Little Big Planet 2
3- Saint’s Row 2
4- Just Cause 2
5-Warhammer 40,000

THIS is exactly what I mean. OK, we can´t have the same games as in Europe for some reason (license or whatever) But, how come is soo abused? I mean, is not that I want Sony America to give awesome games that european can have. I just want to have good games as they have.

WAR0979 said:

October 29th, 10:06 pm

@Morgan, do you get tired of saying “Wait till next month” every month? You keep promising some amazing month but every month we watch as you reveal disappointing game, after disappointing game. Sure you throw a few average games in there but that’s nothing when you look at EU’s selection this year. Dead Space 2, RE 5, Crysis 2 and Red Dead Redemption. Stop skirting the issue that the US is getting the shaft on Plus. Stop trying to “butter everyone’s toast” and just make it fair. And PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT say “It takes time to make changes.” Just take what you were going to give the smaller EU market and give it to the much bigger US market. It’s that easy. I stand by my last post. Membership ends at end of November and I will not be renewing because I know exactly what you will be releasing …more lackluster crap and another month of hit games for EU. Though December you will give us a few games. WHY? Because I’m guessing a lot of the US memberships expire around Christmas and I hope they don’t renew. Then we watch as the former giant known as Sony either bends to our will and delivers what we pay for or falls to the ashes like so many other console companies of the past.

Wow War rallying the troops over 50 bucks a year, that pretty much pays for itself in the first month. Look, you my not be happy with what PS plus offers, but get this, THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT LOVE THE SERVICE! GASP! I know I just took your breath away right? You don’t like it? Don’t resub. I think that would be best. I’ve been a Plus member since plus was introduced, and I think it’s getting better myself. Many people feel that way also. Instead of being selfish, you might want to look at the bigger picture. For one person that doesn’t like Plus, or they’re not getting the million dollars worth of content they think they deserve for 50 bucks a year, there’s probably 2 or 3 that love what they get, and look forward to future updates.

October 29th, 11:18 pm

A lot of you people really just don’t understand how business works do you? do you really think they can just randomly pick a game and say…….lets make it free this week…! it takes effort. yall like to complain every time you don’t get your way. seriously if it bothers you that much then just don’t even bother checking it out. really if you think about it the instant game collection itself is worth more than your ps+ and then some. @Morgan Haro I for one am one who is happy with the content you all provide for us. Not every weekly update is in my taste and that’s totally fine because I definitely appreciate the ones that are in my taste of gaming. Thanks again and keep up the good work. MOST OF US OUT THERE DO APPRECIATE IT!

As usual, this is a terrible week to be a Plus owner. But I went over the European blog to check out the comments on their latest addition:

Most of the complaints there are about how it’s one free old shooter after another with no variety.

The moral of the story is that Plus is crappy no matter which region you live in.

iTofuMan said:

October 30th, 1:34 am

One thing i don’t get about people praising PS+ is that they never see it from the other person perspective. Seeing how long PS+ has been implemented i wouldn’t consider it something new thus thing like weak updates, zero content for either ps3/psn/vita/psp/ps1 should have been a thing from the past. I doubt licencing is an issue since i would assume if they wanted said game out they would have done the licencing years ago, or when PS+ was first brought out. One would think Sony would have stocked up on a ton of content for at least 2-3 years for PS+, if that’s not the case then it just proves they just send anything up for approval and whatever gets accepted gets put up.

All i need to know is why think this is the most perfect/flawless system like all the people praising PS+ to be? its not and probably never will be. we still get updates with content missing on both sides, weak update, etc. Yes you cant please everyone, but you can try. i think its foolish to have a game put up to discount not even a month from release, Sony should have known that and also released something along with it. And they need to stop saying “next week will be better” or anything like that because more often than not it never is better.

NeoGuardian86 said:

October 30th, 2:37 am

meh nothing. no matter got plenty of Assassin’s Creed 3 + Liberation gaming goin’ on. and i still need to finish the Starhawk singleplayer (which surprisingly i am really liking)

looking for to Vita getting some PS Plus love. see what’s offered next week.

October 30th, 2:51 am

Glad that I read this first when I came home with my WWE 13 midnight release, 50% off the fan axxess great, thanks for that. Oh yeah I guess the few same people over and over again that don’t like plus because they don’t get offered the games they wanted signed up for the wrong service. I almost tire of reading the posts here. I don’t like seeing the post comparing to the content we get to the people that get other stuff in Europe or what not. We get good stuff in America PS Plus and I have been happy with every game. Most of those games you all asking for are pretty cheap at retail just go pick them up. Games like Red Dead Redemption I bought on ps plus when they were discounted, ah so many benefits I got since I been PS Plus since day 1 , no complaints here. I know people have their opinions but all I see is want want want, Just appreciate that they even offer us PS Plus which has been kind to me.
