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.

Nice update!
Portal 2 will come with the steam game?

Just a suggestion for future discounts…

In order to keep my girlfriend happy, I request that you please see about hooking us up w/ discounting the remaining DJ Hero/2 DLC on the psn!

This is one of the only games that she will play for hours on end, and that we can play together. It would be greatly apprecated if you guys could work out a deal w/ Activision to make this happen, seeing as to how almost all of the rhythm games available are dead.

I too, would like to see an option added to the polls, that states, “More Disappointed with the IGC select than pleased.” Please do your best to see the IGC get games from the RPG genre. Thanks

I’ve tried, I just can’t get into Resident Evil.

I have AC III and NFS:MW to keep me busy until the next free game … I hope …

DeathGazer said:

Hope you guys just copy EU from last month and we get Bulletstorm as well.


AizawaYuuichi said:

November 5th, 1:04 pm

Well, I sort of want to vote for the Halloween Sale, as that discounted some nice games… but most of them I’d already received at steep discounts or for free through PS+. And the one awesome thing, 40% off One Piece, you did barely a month after it hit the store, instead of it being a Day 1/Week 1 discount, so I got screwed out of that. :(
Honestly, I won’t say October was “disappointing”, but there was absolutely nothing I liked about it. None of the games interested me, and the timing on the discount that did interest me was a month late.
And now we’re getting another generic action/shooter/horror game, which I don’t like at all. I really, really wish people would stop asking for EU content. If they want EU content, get EU+. I want exactly ZERO (0) of the games they’ve been getting. Shooter, shooter, shooter, shooter. Please… enough of that trash comes out already, I don’t want to see a steady stream of it forced down my throat as the IGC free games.

Count me as another PS+’er with the desire to see an “X – None of the Above” choice on future polls asking us what our favorite offers from the previous month were.

Sweet! Finally Resident evil 5 for free :D, I had the standard edition since day one and was pissed off when the gold version came out and never dared to buy it again hoping one day i would get it for free as well of the DLC, and well what do you know? lol sweet, I just hope the controls weren’t different back then becauase I’m already used to the RE6 controls hehe

Elvick_ said:

November 5th, 1:14 pm

I voted for the Sega discounts. Though enjoyed the Halloween sale as well, but tha didn’t have many sales on content I didn’t already own.

USCCM said:

November 5th, 1:15 pm

Yay! Finally!

Glad someone listens to us! See? Complaining works!

Keep ’em coming, Sony!

I’m back to being a happy camper!

Great update by the way, Uncle Morgan.

Gonna grab me a portal gun and throw some nasty stuff at ’em Vikings!

November 5th, 1:16 pm

Disappointed that we still don’t have PS+ for Vita, even though it’s been promised forever. STILL no Wake Up club either.

Does the PSN version of Portal 2 come with the Steam code, or is it just the PS3 version of the game?

plaztiksyke said:

November 5th, 1:16 pm

does RE5 Gold include the Move support?

jeff0918 said:

November 5th, 1:17 pm

I get a kick out of reading all these comments. I swear there is just no pleasing some people. Boohoo your not getting the free game you want. I haven’t liked every free game and I already have some of them but I am not gonna sit here and whine about it. I give Sony credit for trying to pick a selection of games that provide something for everyone. If you don’t like the content offered then simply spend your money elsewhere.

In my opinion the Plus service has been fantastic. Great free content and discounts. I do wish I would have known in advance we were getting a discount on WWE 13 Fan Axxess before I bought it last month but it’s still a great value at $20. Overall, I am looking forward to giving RE: 5 a try and hope you keep the great updates coming.

necroden said:

November 5th, 1:19 pm

I’m relatively new to Playstation Plus, and even newer to these forums. I just wanted to know when RES 5 will be available for download. Will my location (Canada) affect when it’s available for me?

Thanks in advance.

USCCM said:

November 5th, 1:21 pm

Oh one more thing. I agree with some of the commenters.

My vote is also “None of the above”.

October PS+ didn’t really rub me the right way. And getting sucked into a comment bashing battle for voicing my opinion left a bad taste in my mouth.

But at least this month is a good start! And here’s to hoping it will get even better!

Kchow23 said:

November 5th, 1:22 pm

A better update this week than the last month, I am excited to play the RE5 DLC and will think of getting the DLC for Portal 2 or Vikings Attack.

freshprincepbg said:

November 5th, 1:23 pm

Ha I knew that pic of RE5 wasn’t a mock-up :D

I had a pretty good streak with Plus giving me games I didn’t already own, and now it ends :( Glad you finally threw USA a bone though, but there’s still a ton of games EU got that we didn’t yet, more please!

rightontargt4 said:

November 5th, 1:24 pm

Morgan – I don’t usually ask these questions on here, but are you or any of the PSN Staff aware of the issue where PSN/PS3 games downloaded from the store prompt the user to install on a PSP System?

(Ex: Infamous trying to copy to PSP system, gives me no option to install on PS3. PSP and Vita don’t even support that game, any clue why this is happening/is this something you guys are working on?)

jeff0918 said:

November 5th, 1:24 pm

@214 RE5 will be available whenever the Store updates for your region tomorrow.

Scirocco20v said:

November 5th, 1:25 pm

If I get Portal 2 will I only be able to play with ps move if I get the dlc for it?? Also if I buy portal 2 on the psn will I get the PC version with it?? If I buy portal 2 for ps3 at a store I will get the PC version with it.

Please Answer this question it will help me make a decision if I buy this or not.

    You’ll be able to use PS Move on Portal 2 without Portal 2 In Motion. Portal 2 now supports a patch that enables PS Move support. The Steam offerings to get Portal 2 on PC was more of a new release promotion. I don’t think that there will be anything that will enable you to get the PC version by buying the PS Store version.

MrBeatdown said:

November 5th, 1:26 pm

This is exactly why I don’t understand the love for the European version of PS+… old, old popular games that plenty of people have already played, and have been dirt cheap for years. I platinum’d this in 2009.

I was hoping Vanquish would be the free game this week. It went under the rader and most didn’t play it.

MyrequeArk said:

When will this post be updated with PS+ Vita info? Later today or tomorrow?

Will PS+ Vita be available tomorrow?

November 5th, 1:31 pm

Good Update Morgan, haven’t played RE since the v4 (that honestly didn’t like) hope this one will recover a fan of the original RE series. Just another suggestion, maybe we can have news about the updates with a little more anticipation, remember that EU knew about crysis2 since the 26th October and we had to suffer with anxiety until today.

Good first update of November!

Finally a decent price on a full retail game

Kchow23 said:

November 5th, 1:40 pm

I would love to see the LBP2 Move DLC free for PS Plus since I really thought that was going to be given out for free and instead we are being charged for something that was advertised on the box. Moreover, discounts on Gravity Rush DLC or LBP Vita DLC would be great for PS Plus for PS Vita.

Kchow23 said:

November 5th, 1:42 pm

Not sure if this is possible, but I’d assume so on PS Vita. It’d be great that when we download a game or app… the latest patch is already included with the download so you don’t have to patch it after it has been downloaded.

JEC94 said:

I already have Resident Evil 5 collectors edition and a code for RE5 GE thanks to RE6 anthology. So nothing for me again lol.

WoundedUnderwear said:

November 5th, 1:49 pm

I feel that the monthly POLLS are a slap in the face for anyone that was dissappounted with the monthly updates. All the question is a WIN WIN for SONY. The only winners out of these POLLS are SONY and the customers who like these games and / or discounts. It’s also kinda like forcing people who don’t like the monthly updates to choose. There should be another option to choose from that should say DISAPPOINTED WITH MONTHLY UPDATES, of course something little nicer and better worded.

With these monthly polls lately it seem that Sony only care for customers that only give them postive feed back.

WalterFC_USA said:

November 5th, 1:55 pm

Would be great if next update is about a racing game (need for speed).

SKILLZ-27 said:

November 5th, 2:01 pm

Nice update keep them coming too bad i already own re5:gold edition
you should consider giving out need for speed :hot pursuit

BunnySavior said:

November 5th, 2:06 pm

I just finished RE6, and it was quite a dull game, story and game play wise. So I am not that crazy about RE5 as a freebie, if RE6 is anything like RE5, then it’ll be quite a snoozer.
There isn’t a -none of the above option-. Obviously nobody is forcing the public to vote, but this survey makes me feel like we’re playing the question game *would you rather: “would you rather play with your feet on fire OR have fire ants all over your hands while playing?”.

I really want Portal 2, but still have issues with PSN and my Visa card that I used many times before :(

+ Morgan Haro on November 5th, 2012 at 10:25 am said:
Sorry to hear about that issue. Have you tried picking up cards at retail and redeeming them on the Store? I know it’s a workaround, but it might be a solution.

That’s the problem with the new store, Morgan… I’ve tried a half-dozen times to add funds via PSN card and not succeeded yet, another 6 times using two different CC’s and just finally got one to fund my wallet… How many posts have mentioned this problem under the new store announcement thread? It really sucks that I’m trying to throw money at you and Sony won’t take it…

Oh wow, Resident Evil 5!..Not too happy here with a old game that i beat when it launched. When will we see the games EU got? which happen to be far more recent titles at that.

Augh! I’ve already platinumed Resident Evil 5! Nice for having a digital copy on my account incase I feel like speed running the game again!

November 5th, 2:33 pm

well i finally got hit by a bullet from plus but thats ok i have dodged alot of them. i bought re5 ge not that long ago for 30 bucks. But morgan did say there is another game coming next tuesday so ill keep my fingers crossed that its not another one i already own. i do have a question and it is how are these games selected for plus ? because to me it seems like they are selected from a list of the highest selling games that the sales have stopped for. what this means is that every body and their brother already own this game so if you already own the plus free game what are you gonna do more than likely spend more money on something you dont have this is why they give discounts for plus subscribers. SONY IS MAKING MONEY HAND OVER FIST. this is my suggestion to you sony since you have the money to do it and we all know you do MAKE A GAME JUST ONE GAME AND GIVE IT TO PLUS SUBSCRIBERS ON LAUNCH. prove to the world that you are not just a money grubbin corporation. am i in the ballpark morgan PLUS i want to see if you ever read or comment on any comments past pg 1 or 2. ill check back later to see. ty

PS1 games and themes need to be brought back to PS+ please. Other than that, I love the service. I have such a backlog of games because of PS+ that I’ll never get caught up and that’s a good thing.

November 5th, 2:43 pm

i wish they’d take all these free plus games out , we already have em time for a new set of games im burnt out on all of em tbh , i see RE5 is coming soon thats kool but they should take all the ones thats been free for mnths out also and replace with new games …… time fora change and so,me kooler gamesnot these ps1 looking games they all suck free or not , and NFL BLITZ doesnt wanna load half the time so that was a waste period , and whats up with payday the heist ? thought that was the full game…its not u still gotta pay to play campaign or upgrade n e thing, if ur gonna give it to us FREE make sure its the whole dam game , dont forget we play 3-6 mnths payments and want access to the whole games not just some of it , and get rid of these no good free games thats been on it for 3 mnths or better i think we deserve better than that !

OMG. I’m gonna need a bigger HDD. You guys are delivering great games for the PS+ subscribers. I thought it was a good purchase right from the beginning, but you turn that into the best purchase ever. And I’m buying a vita this month so I can enjoy even more (including the Cross Purchase Vikings game).
