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.

My guess is Cubixx HD, because it was just released as a free download for PSPlus in Europe this week. :P

You should know that they’re just now getting Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One free, which we already got. My point being is that last week almost all of the posts here were complaining about what they have and we don’t, yet now we’re getting RE5, and even the Portal games, and I personally can’t wait to try them with the PS Move.

$50.00 a year and people seriously complaining that they don’t get their money worth absolutely blows my mind. Do me a favor and add up the current prices for all the free FULL games you got, all the other freebies (themes, avatars, etc.), PLUS any discounts you used and saved through PS Plus. If you have enough free time to actually add up ALL those numbers, I think anyone could tell you you’re way more than getting your money worth, especially compared to any other company offerings out there.

I think the closest comparison might be the big N and their “Club” program which gives you coins for cheap themed items (don’t get me wrong, I still love that stuff) :P

Part 2:

But seriously…

On the other hand, I do agree that if there’s ways and ideas to expand this service and make it better still, then I’m all for that, but the idea that you’re somehow entitled to getting a few thousand dollars worth of free stuff and discounts a year for your 50 bucks is absurd.

I really like the idea mentioned earlier about having a lineup of 2 or three full games and you pick… That’s a really cool thought for those of us who already own some of the listed games… But credits back… I really don’t think that’s right or fair or feasible to ask of Sony or game designers; just silly really.

I LOVE this service and even though there’s a TON of stuff I simply don’t want or desire, I realize that there are many more who DO want those things, and I think fair is fair.

I also don’t get the whole “PS Plus just releases the same types of games over and over”. I’ve seen all sorts of variety of genres available, and I think it’s a good mixup.

More is certainly better in my book, but I wish people would drop the idea of entitlement.

No matter what they offer there will always be whining and complaining. How are they at Sony supposed to know what games people already own. to give a credit if someone owns the game is just stupid. you pay just over 4 dollars a month for this service so any expectation that you will get a brand new retail game every week is unrealistic.

Gamefly is $20 a month for one game at a time. you can buy at a discounted rate and choose any system you want, but you have to wait for new releases. Great service but it is limited to playing the games in your possession once you return it, you cant play it. I know you can play games on PC but I dont use that service.

There are not many services like plus and many that think it is great, save the whining for your therapist

FadedKamui said:

November 6th, 3:42 pm

Maybe if we could somehow fool ourselves into believing that it won’t update ’till sometime on Wed., then we’ll all be much happier people…

…Yeah, I don’t think that’d work either. :P

Hold your power button until you get the angry 3 beeps, then slap your play station and tell it, “Bad Play Station, Bad!”

November 6th, 4:54 pm

Hmm, I see it on Plus, but it is still trying to charge me 29.99. Hope this gets fixed soon.

@430 Im sure we wont get an answer on page 9 but I am also being charge for the free game, I can not stand the new store and please please please do not tell me I need to download the trial to play. I only want to play the DLC not an hour of the game and then the DLC

ZiKaRiO_787 said:

November 6th, 5:03 pm

Smells like tomorrow, in the morning, many angry dummies will ask for a refund because of this glitchy a$s store that sony have forced to install without any kind of stability tests.

TriangleOffense said:

November 6th, 5:04 pm

@430, its working now. I turned restarted the store and it loaded fine

ZiKaRiO_787 said:

November 6th, 5:05 pm

Plus I hope is an error and not actually just a new full game trial and that Morgan got misinformed before blogging it.

November 6th, 5:11 pm

I’d like to let all of you know: I am currently trying to download RE5 thru plus, but for some reason they’re still trying to take my monies… I called support and was adamantly told that RE5 IS NOT ON OUR FREE GAME COLLECTION LIST. I had to be told several times I was wrong before reading the post above and then put on hold 3 now 4 times over this. How could this CSR NOT KNOW WHAT THE CONTENT LINEUP IS. SHE WAS CITING LAST MONTHS PLUS UPDATE. I understand that the update is today, and yea, maybe she could give two rats about games in general, but c’mon, how do WE have this info before an employee ay Sony Computer Entertainment???? I just want some accountability, I love my PS3 and all the features it provides. GET YOUR TECH SUPPORT ON LINE. PLEASE. I shouldn’t have to spend… as of right now 25 minutes on the phone over a simple issue. Thank you :)

November 6th, 5:14 pm

I too tried to get the RE5 game, only for it to try and charge me. I put it in the cart and it says (with the game) FREE but it still wants to charge me 29.99$ I don’t know what the problem is, but I hope it gets fixed soon.

ZiKaRiO_787 said:

November 6th, 5:16 pm

I hope I’m wrong but it might even be intentional to see who falls for it and pays the $29.99 lol

nikolis44 said:

November 6th, 5:19 pm

33 minutes and counting. ON HOLD…at least she checked in on me…

ZiKaRiO_787 said:

November 6th, 5:23 pm

@Nikolis44 if I was you I would hang up the minute she contradicted this blog. You just wasting time, those people are usually programmed to know about how to fix the ps3 by checking if it is connected, reconnecting it and restarting it.

vdiddy210 said:

November 6th, 5:24 pm

well glad I’m not crazy

sounds good everyone.

I took my PS3 with me to st kitts while I stay here for a while so I’m used to having to download games overnight, thought the update might just be slow too…

ALARM-cIock said:

November 6th, 5:25 pm

This is ridiculous… One step forward, two steps back, in typical Sony fashion.

ZiKaRiO_787 said:

November 6th, 5:26 pm

Me: My PS3 led is red.
Support: Restart it.
Me: I did and now there is smoke coming out of the vents.
Support: Eject the BR Disc and make sure it does not have any stains or damage, clean it with care.
Me: Omg my house is on fire now.
Support: Unplug the PS3, reconnect it and restart it.
Me: Thanks for nothing, I’m homeless now.
Support: You can send your PS3 to our HQ for an additional price so we can inspect it.

November 6th, 5:27 pm

Let’s just wait a bit. They might fix the problem soon. I mean, the update just went live, so they might have to iron a kink or two.

ALARM-cIock said:

November 6th, 5:28 pm

HAHA so true Zikario.

nikolis44 said:

November 6th, 5:31 pm

40 minutes and 9 seconds on the dern phone and all I got was a wait and see in like 30 40 minutes. I KNOW THAT I JUST WANT SOMEONE TO BE RESPONSIBLE!! I’m ok with you telling me that…. um yea were having a technical difficulty rite now and we’re working on taking care of it. BUT YOU DIDNT DO THAT. It was crystal clear that you had no idea that “Residential Evil” (Not a typo, that is what she called it) was even a possibility on my IGC. This is a problem Sony. ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY. SOMEONE STEP THE HECK UP (Obeying the rules… trust me it should be much much worse).

November 6th, 5:31 pm

Skiedragon81 said:

November 6th, 5:33 pm

wow there is just no justification for this kind of stupidity for international business, did EU already go live and is everything fine with them? And i thought the whole point of this upgrade and the delay after was it was supposed to be EASIER to program! W T F?!

ALARM-cIock said:

HAHA this is **bleeping** bull **bleep**!

RE 5 is in the “FREE” section of PS+ but it still trying to charge me to get it. Anyone else with the same issue??

November 6th, 5:39 pm

they didnt drop the ball , it turned into a grenade and they fell on it.

nikolis44 said:

November 6th, 5:41 pm

I’m out, and I want to just add 1 last thing… I’m not trying to be snide or short with anyone, its just a little ridiculous when someone is trained not to solve a problem using knowledge and experience, but with a choose your own adventure console handbook, while they sit there on Facebook updating their status. I felt a little ignored and honestly like nothing was attempted. I was told that it was taken “to the last step” but not explained what that step was. I deeply consider abandoning my PS at least twice to three times a year, and that’s depressing. I beg and implore that someone at Sony reads this and understands that this is NOT OK, and really, all we want is for it to be ok… it doesn’t have to be perfect, ok would be grrrrrreat!
