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

Oh hey, November. Almost didn’t see you there with all of your fall colors, national holidays, and general autumn revelry. While the temperature may be dropping, Plus is getting ready to deliver some great content. We’re happy to kick off this month with Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, free for PlayStation Plus members! There’s more to discuss of course, so read on to get info on all the goods.

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

November 6th PlayStation Plus Update

Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition

Free for Plus Members

This version of the original acclaimed Resident Evil 5 expands on the action-packed gameplay by including 2 extra episodes, one of which features Chris Redfield with series veteran Jill Valentine, along with extra costumes, content, and more. Of course it comes with the complete Resident Evil 5 story; playable solo, or via local or online co-op. If you haven’t tried one of the best Resident Evil titles this generation, now is your chance.

Portal 2

30% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular price: $19.99, PS Plus Price: $13.99)

One of 2011’s best titles and on multiple ‘Game of the Year’ lists, Portal 2 is coming to PSN and is coming in at a steal of a price for Plus members. Navigate ground breaking environment-based puzzles based on moving your character through a series of self-generated portals while experiencing the game’s outstanding story. This release also coincides with a patch for the game that enables PlayStation Move support as well!

Portal 2 In Motion

30% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $6.99)

So you wanted more Portal? PlayStation Move owners get the exclusive slice of cake with Portal 2 In Motion. The new addition to the series introduces new gameplay mechanics; including scaling and rotation of objects as well as portal surfing. These new abilities are all required as the player progresses through an increasingly challenging set of test chambers, but require new thinking to solve.

When Vikings Attack (Cross-Buy on PS Vita and PS3)

30% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $6.99)

Another PlayStation Network exclusive; this dynamic adventure features fast-paced battles pitting up to four co-operative players against the Viking hordes, and maniacally competitive “Versus” arenas where players can test their skills against friends. With online cross-platform play, and a certified Cross-Buy game where buying it on one device entitles you to downloading it on the other; Plus members will be getting the best deal on this one-of-a-kind PlayStation experience.
ABSOLUTE SUPERCARS (Only available in US)

20% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $7.99)

If you’re looking for an accessible racing game that still beats with the heart of some of the world’s audacious supercars, look no further. From Ferrari, to Pagani, to Aston Martin and McLaren, there’s a car for everyone and a series of stunning tracks to race them on.

It’s a jam-packed lineup this week, and there will be plenty more to come throughout the month. Before we go, let’s take a look back on some of the content we released in October and get your thoughts on what hit you the best.

Sorry if this has already been brought up. I bought a year of Plus on 10/3, bought a few more games through the month and finally bought RDR and the Undead content on the 28th of the month. Basically I am saying I spent well over $100 in Oct, yet I see no $20 credit on account. Did I do something wrong? I did not fund account then spend just bought and money was taken right from credit card on account. Please tell me I did not have to do that extra step of actually funding account before I spent it. Thanks!

Voted KoF because its smexy.

No One Piece discount? Ohwellz made my choice easier

RE5. Cool I beat it with my cousin. Now I can randomly play when im up for blasting stuff.

People still complaining that they own it………..that sucks but at least you can gloat that you got to enjoy it earlier. As with any other games we might get to duplicate the EU.

speaking of updates, i renewed my plus membership for one year and then bought RE6 in total of more than 100$ on Oct 10, now already november but i don’t see any 20$ addition updated to my wallet, when is this cashback will be given?

nevermind @ 506. I see Morgan answered the question on @141.

I agree that no favorite could be selected for the month of October. Could we have an option like….”I found no real value in the content this month and if it continues, I will discontinue”. However, you said there is another free game coming next week? Could it be a game that holds something special? Come on, you know what games I’m talking about….

Its confusing. But when you download it now it says its a one hour trial. So you do the one hour. The go back to the store and cm firm purchase again. It will say something bout your game collection and being avalible as long as you have psplus. And when you confirm purchase again the games unlocked. Difficult, but Sony will iron it out. We all just need to give Sony some time to fix things. Everyhng can’t be perfect all the time

Hello there guys. Well, first of all, thanks very much for the update, very nice, already played RE5, but not the gold edition, so, great!

Second of all, i would like to sugest something: credit for those free games that i’ve already own in the PSN. See, let say i bough Uncharted 2 on PSN, so there’s no point for me to have it free on plus in case of its release, so you guys could give us plus members, in these cases, some kind of compensation. Of course you can’t please everybody, but it’s an idea anyway. Other sugestion, since i’m already here, is that you put trailers inside PSN as it was before, now you need to download the trailer to see the preview, kind of boring.

Third of all, i would like to say thanks for the service. I’ve been a Plus member for about 3 to 4 months and i’m really enjoying it. :)

The extra levels will unlock through playing the story mode, also supossedly if you have a previous save from the regular edition of RE5. I guess they contain spoilers for the main story line so thats why their locked at the beginning of your playthrough. Some costumes are suppose to be unlocked in the extras menu.


November 7th, 11:06 pm

I wanna to believe you. But i have this game on xbox with all dlc and it should be accessible from the extra content menu. Not too mention the mercenaries and mercenaries reunion modes are missing as well? Surley u dont have to play through the game to unlock those?!

November 8th, 3:50 am

I’m installing RE5 Gold for the 3rd time now and every prior time it’s come up as a timed trial. I’m going to be quite irritated if this keeps up.

SidNightwalker said:

November 8th, 4:49 am

I already have RE 5 Gold, have for a long time, but this is not a bad update.Not bad at all.We need more updates with truly high quality free games in them.Also you’re skimping on new avatars and themes lately, you should think about adding more.

kaka_campolongo said:

November 8th, 5:56 am

Tsupi_Az said:

November 8th, 10:41 am

This is just information I got from gamefaqs on their boards, I have not finished the story mode myself to confirm this yet. but supposedly one will unlock around chapter 3-1 I think thats the one I’m on right now so I will post again after that.

Why are yall having such a hard time downloading RE5GE? Either your a bunch of idiots or your a bunch of idiots.

Tsupi_Az said:

November 8th, 12:48 pm

I can now confirm after chapter 3-1 lost in nightmares does unlock.

hikaricore_ said:

November 8th, 1:17 pm

@ ZombieCracka: Well you see it’s related to the fact that the PSN store isn’t downloading the correct version of the game for some of us. Now I know you’re superior and all since you lucked out and didn’t have this problem, but if you could do us all a favor and shunt off it would be greatly appreciated.

I didn’t really think I would like most of October. Just infamous and pacman. That being said my wife and I can’t afford any games right now as I am out of work and she is chronically ill. Ps + allowed us to download 10 games for free last month and play them. Which is excellent. Am I going to keep playing most of them probably not. However there are several games I am going to keep. I see the issue with owning games and then them coming out free. I think getting a small amount of credit for it is a great plan. Also we have a Vita it would be nice if more information came out about plus for this. Even if it’s just we have no clue. I like the variety of games offered for plus. Though October seemed heavy for shooters (my thing) and and the arcade/rpg/puzzles more my wife. I think it would be cool to select like 3 genre pacs to choose from each month and then get like 5/10 offered. I dunno if this would work. I feel like the vita stuff is being ignored and while many games on vita are awesome games are super slow to come out which is disappointing since we bought ours day one.

Thanks for the free games. Or at least several games a month for 4 bucks. My wife says please add more real rpg.


November 9th, 10:55 am

If i have the regular RS5 can i just download the extra stuff and not all the game just the DLC

I know this is out of context but I’m sure that a mod will see this….PLEASE make a MLP VITA GAME !! :) I speak for the fans !! ;)

Ok well heres the update for this update.

I Download RE5: GE and I thought I would like it, turns out I really did not like this game at all, just not my cup of tea.

Anyways on a good note thank you for the Portal 2 Discount Sony. For $14 Portal 2 is very much worth, an amazing game, glad I bought it. I highly recommend anyone to pick up this game, its hard not to like it. Even at $20 Portal 2 would be a great buy.

When do we get God of War: Ascension Beta? I got the God of war Saga and got a free month of PS Plus and it said check out the beta in November and would be cool to see the new old school Sega games at a discount Toejam & Earl in Funkatron or free for Plus please let me knoe if you know thanks!! :)

TonyTheDealer said:

November 10th, 11:41 pm

nice selections this month :). Portal 2 looks very attractive at $14, but it would be much more preferable if there were a full game trial for it as well; I would be much more inclined to buy it if i had a taste, you know? I’ve always been curious as to how it’s decided when games get their trial versions released on the store.

November 11th, 5:08 am

Well there were some o,k games for oct i think the best idea was day 1 digital it be awesome to see more big titles come in on this great offer i hate scratched discs now i like to thank you for giving RE5 GOLD to the fans and hopefully we will get more awesome games i think that all plus members should get the same great games cause no country around the world is better than the other its only fair just saying and remeber if there wasnt any playstation fans there wouldnt be anything so it be nice to get our questions answered ive noticed alot unanswered thank you morgan great job man atleast you make an attempt

I just wanted to tell Morgan Haro that his hard work and effort are appreciated by me : ) but people in America do look at the EU store and they totally owned us in terms of Full Games, I’m going to buy a card on Tuesday according to Tuesday November 13 PSN STORE update which is also my Big Brothers B-Day! : ) I hope it’s all good ^.^

After reading some of these posts I have to say I’m a little shocked to see people complaining about free games. Guess it goes to show that you can’t please everyone. I am unbelievably happy with the ps+ purchase i made. Not only do I get free games the cloud storage saved me as my 60 gb ylod i would have had no way to get my saves. Think it was the best $50 i have spent on my ps3 and will renew every year thanks sony
