PlayStation Plus Update: RE5 Gold Edition Free for Plus, Portal 2 Discounted, More

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.

Oh, I’m so sick of getting crappy generic action shootie games for PS+. I hate these generic pewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewers.


@48 – RE5 has more hispanic and people of other races than black people, IN AFRICA! So, what the hell are you complaining for? RE5 doesn’t make any sense.

Why do people keep on about the Vita? I thought it failed dismally right? And Plus is getting worse and worse IMO, not suited for guy’s like me anymore…Great service though once, had some good times waaaaaaay back in the day.

Nice drop!!!
RE5 Gold Edition for plus member and When Vikings Attack for $6.99.

Another crappy plus update for me. Almost 2 months now and I’ve had all the games. I really hope this month turns out better. You guys really need to blow plus for vita out of the water.

Good update for PS3 but what about Vita?

    More Plus on Vita info will be coming soon.

Squiggle55 said:

November 5th, 9:58 am

Thanks for the update! Fantastic. This is a free game that I will definitely enjoy. PS+ keeps deliviring. Thank you. I will also very likely buy When Viking’s Attack now with this discount.

I voted for the Halloween sales. That’s actually what I got the most out of last month. NFL blitz was surprisingly fun, and I love the $1 Sega games — but the huge discounts on a long list of games all at the same time was really great for me.

when i get my 20 dollars reward i will definetely get portal 2, just one question why do you have an official xbox the magazine review this is a playstation blog. Besides that great update guy’s keep it up.

    November 5th, 10:29 am

    I’d hate to let a quick text of another magazine’s review prevent us from using a perfectly good trailer. There’s no logos, and it’s about a second’s worth of time. You guys know what system to get it on anyway, right? ;)

boomstickbhg said:

November 5th, 10:01 am

Oh goodie, yet another IGC game that I’ve owned for a long long time (bought when on sale as a plus member).

Other than the very first IGC update, there’s mostly been old games I’ve owned for a long time. No where near as good as the FullPS3 selection that EU has been getting.

So yet another horror and shooter game. Yet another old game. Ever thought of getting some variety/diversity for the game types or will we just keep getting shooters, horror, sidescroller crud?

First the store update makes browsing/looking around for fun next to impossible (not to mention all the missing content, errors, etc…) and now yet another bad Plus update.

Every week the PS3 is more like the Xbox, this is just sad.

November 5th, 10:04 am

@109 Xbox is a great system. It has a lot of good games plus the better online experience. I don’t know how PS3 is turning into one!

boomstickbhg said:

November 5th, 10:04 am

Oh the Poll definately needs an Other/None of the Above catergory.

The only Plus thing in october that I liked even a little was the One Piece discount.

ABRipperXX said:

November 5th, 10:05 am

Why is Absolute Supercars only in the US? Why not Canada? When will PS + for Vita be shown off?

Lasdrub said:

November 5th, 10:05 am

One Piece wasn’t in the poll! I liked that second most after the Halloween discounts for Plus.

boomstickbhg said:

November 5th, 10:08 am

@110 I hate the xbox (I have one, plenty of games I like) ever since they changed the dashboard/marketplace and now navigating is a nightmare, just like the new PS store (the store also looks like they cut/paste from the xbox code)

Between that and plus becoming a terrible paid service (xbox you have to pay just to play online, so the comparison there is both consoles have bad paid online services), PS3 is heading (for me) in a bad direction towards the xbox qualities I don’t like.

November 5th, 10:08 am

i voted the 1 $ games they were better than the 3 other free ones ,
i played kof13 about 5 times .. quit was boring
played nfl blitz 2 times .. quit was boring
played payday 2 times , plan on going back for the trophies but don’t feel like it

DerpiestShazbot said:

November 5th, 10:08 am

Does anyone know if Mercenaries mode is unlocked from the start for Gold Edition? I have already beaten the game like 3 times on my Xbox 360 and I don’t feel like beating it again on the PS3. I’d like to just be able to hop right into Mercenaries mode and enjoy the DLC.

Crap, Resident Evil 5 T___T….

Nothing for me this week. :-/

Bring on PS+ for Vita! :D

bamahollis88 said:

November 5th, 10:13 am


Now just get us one more Full ps3 game this month (so we will be on par with EU) and then this will be a successful month.

gemuvan said:

November 5th, 10:14 am

US PSN doesn’t need to resemple EU PSN =). Why can’t you give away some god stuff like hd remakes, for example =)))…

This for Canada Too?

November 5th, 10:16 am

I didnt bother readin’ through the rest of the comments, but am I the only one that noticed this: What happened to Vanquished? The blog and the blogcast just announced it for this week. Not like you guys to mess up that bad what happened?

    You might be confusing this post with the PlayStation Store Update post? This only covers upcoming games that are getting a Plus discount / benefit in the current week.

Nergil said:

November 5th, 10:16 am

Great game so I’m not complaining…but surprise I already own it….oh well, I’ll be getting the Portal DLC for sure.
I hope this is a sign of continued improvement…still waiting on a sortable download list, and maybe some psone classics or lesser known psn games that i don’t own. Finally, though, after a month of crap you’ve come through with something decent.

NoPity_21 said:

Omg great update I approve this message lol

KemetMan72-_ said:

November 5th, 10:17 am

Great! Another game I own. Gotta stop buying crap from the store. Well at least there’s a discount on Vikings.

ItaChu said:

November 5th, 10:18 am

The MAJORITY of us voted for MONTHLY updates why do you guys keep giving us WEEKLY updates!?!? Come on Morgan lol

Nice one of Resident Evil 5 after saying it wasnt coming here, there it is lol might as well keep it up and copy the rest of the EU Store games :) and make everyone happy around here, at least so they stop yapping the same stuff every week :)
I hope Vita’s PS+ Update is next week and I hope it is GRAND! Cuz I want to get PS+ again but only if the Vita offering is nice! hint hint Give games that barely anyone bought like Sumioni lol or Dynasty Warriors and at least 2 PSone games and 1 minis that would be nice :)

    takes time to readjust communication plans man….not to mention that there’s still the disclaimer that the poll is just one of many factors we look to in order to make decisions, but it is an important consideration =) So no concrete decisions have been made to alter the post frequency at this time. Just want to manage your expectations there.

Nergil said:

November 5th, 10:20 am

And to anybody saying this game is racist is just ignorant and misinformed, plain and simple…not even gonna get into all the obvious reasons why it’s not.

ItaChu said:

November 5th, 10:21 am

Vanquish was announced as coming to the PS Store not as coming to PS Plus …. or was it? @ #122

GP-02A-MLRS said:

November 5th, 10:23 am

lol, we finally catch up with EU get a free RE5 golden, tho 1 month later……..
looking forward to hear something about vita.

Ryumoau said:

November 5th, 10:23 am

@126 i agree. The monthly update should have started today. I want to know what sony has planned for next week, before i go buying things they will eventually put a discount on.

gus_xl said:

November 5th, 10:25 am

When you think about it.. It’s kind of ridiculous how good PS Plus is. You’ve basically spoiled us. Pretty soon, if you don’t hand out a Triple A title every week, people are going to go off the deep end.

ziggurcat said:

November 5th, 10:29 am

@ drsmoov:

“Worst update ever. What an awful and racist game. RE5:Kill all Black People”


get off of your soapbox, the game isn’t being racist. you need to learn about context.

and heaven forbid that a game set in africa has black people in it…

KemetMan72-_ said:

November 5th, 10:29 am

#69 stop worrying about Darksiders and Deadspace 2 and Red Dead….for the love of god DS2 was only 9 bucks! And Darksiders II has been out and is superior in every way and they already said we won’t be getting Read Dead….actually jump into the 21st century and BUY some titles. I have all that’s on your little list….spend some money!

ALARM-cIock said:

November 5th, 10:30 am

Finally! An IGC title that I’ll actually play more than once.

thebiglouie said:

November 5th, 10:33 am

I’m guessing the download version of Portal 2 won’t come with a code for the free PC version like with the Bluray version, right?

Link01 said:

November 5th, 10:36 am

Well, Portal 2 DLC is officially bought! Now, let us here some Vita news!

Rafa-Mayu said:

November 5th, 10:37 am

Geat, already played a lot of RE5 thanks to a friend but now we can play online multiplayer.

Link01 said:

November 5th, 10:37 am

Oh, and sneaky sneaky with the RE Gold image on the new PS Store and denying it. Either you loved us enough to get that deal…. or you guys were being sneaky and slipped ;)

ComixZone said:

November 5th, 10:37 am

buying that Resident Evil 6 Anthology was definitely a waste of money :(

I’m looking forward to next week’s update! Portal 2 at 13.99 is sweet, I’ll finally get to play it!

NickMulder said:

November 5th, 10:39 am

It’s unfortunate that I already have RE5 Gold Edition lol but nonetheless, I’m glad it’s joined the Instant Game Collection so maybe now people will complain a little less lol ;p keep up the great work Morgan!

oh_richard said:

November 5th, 10:41 am

Hate to be “that guy” but RE5 after Halloween month? Uhhhhhhh

The only thing scary about this month is that I already own RE5 Gold on PSN and I have nothing to look forward to now.

GerolPS said:

November 5th, 10:42 am

when will we receive the $20 from the purchase $100 October promo?

November 5th, 10:42 am

Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica bundle must have a discount too… or a price change maybe :(

MikeFreezy said:

November 5th, 10:45 am

Yet another great update.

NickMulder said:

November 5th, 10:46 am

Btw! I voted for Day 1 Digital Discounts as I thought this was by far the best thing about last month and I was just wondering if there would maybe be more Day 1 Digital games this month? Maybe All-Stars Battle Royale? :p

UnleashedMonkey said:

November 5th, 10:48 am

i knew that ps+ for the vita wouldnt be on the 1st week. i bet itll be on the last week of november ._.

KidCommando said:

November 5th, 10:50 am


You sound like a racist.

I mean you Platinumed Just Cause 2 so you obviously didn’t care about killing all the South East Asians in that game that were depicted as ruthless mercenaries.

If RE5 was placed in a fictional land that wasn’t called Africa, then you would have no problems with the game?

Get real, it is a video game. These aren’t historically accurate foundations here. There are stereotypes in EVERY game on the market.

Its funny that you will kill other races on other games but when it gets to black…..you pull the race card like it should offend you for some reason. hypocrite much?

KidCommando said:

November 5th, 10:51 am

oh, great Plus update! :)

cubbielovr said:

November 5th, 10:51 am

I have been happy with PS+ for the most part, and this week’s additions are really great. Thanks for listening to your fans Sony, and keep up the good work!
