PlayStation Plus Update: Return To Rapture Free in BioShock 2

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

It may be gift-giving season, but PlayStation Plus delivers gaming gifts all year round, and this week is no exception. While many of you might still be getting acquainted with the PS Vita Plus games, PS3 gamers can welcome BioShock 2 into their Instant Game Collection. Download it for free if you’re a Plus member when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday.

Don’t forget that the Music Unlimited offer is still on as well. You can pick up the 1 year subscription for only $12! If you have questions on the service, you may want to check out this handy FAQ. To take advantage of the offer, you’ll need to subscribe from your PS3 or PS Vita Plus enabled account.

December 4th PlayStation Plus Update

BioShock 2 (PS3)
Free for Plus members
Years after the events of the original BioShock, a monster has begun snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. Players step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture (and recent star of PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale), the Big Daddy, as they travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers.
Rockstar Games Collection Edition 1 (PS3)
10% off for PlayStation Plus members (Regular price: $59.99, PS Plus Price: $53.99)
An amazing value, this collection features Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, L.A. Noire, and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition. Plus members can enjoy a 10% discount on this new release to PSN.

Puddle (PS3 and PS Vita Versions)
50% off for PlayStation Plus members (PS3 Plus Price: $3.50 $5.00; PS Vita Plus Price: $2.80 $4.00)
Experience a brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle/platform game where you must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the fluid, but by tilting the game world. It’s a unique twist on the puzzle genre and both PS3 and PS Vita versions are 50% off. Please note, this game is not cross-buy or cross-play enabled; so choose the best version for you, or if you’re a big fan, buy both!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s update. Tune in next week where we’ll have another fantastic title to keep you gaming with PlayStation Plus. Head to the PlayStation Plus forums to continue the conversation and find other Plus fans, and make sure you make your voice heard in the comments below. As always, thanks for your feedback and we’ll see you next week!

@497 Weekly updates is the strategy, Now they can say we still have 3 more weeks and we will match EU, but whats in reality is going to happen is November or october. You get 2 or 3 more PSN games and thats it. while EU gets a one year retail game and another retail game and couple of PSN games to go with that.

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 7:06 am

one year old retail game*

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 7:38 am

@498 yes u r right but Bioshock wa released on feb 2010 and AC was on Oct 2011 almost 2 years diff between their respective release dates. Now the retail price for bioshock in amazon is 12.99 and AC is 38.72. Hope you understand the difference.

I have been a + member since the start. I have to say the service has changed over the years but, Sony cant seem to get it right let me explain; when + started we got 2 ps3, 4 mini, 2 ps one, games every month. Mostly the games were cheap no name games. Then + seemed to have dropped its structure, games were surfacing left and right. Now we have this instant game collection. The instant game collection is a ploy to get first time buyers on board. I have been through all the changes and this is the first time I feel something needs to be said. After reading all posts clearly you see most people don’t have anything good to say about the service. Sony needs to take a good look at this service and make the customers happy, with that being said; Sony should consider changing back to the structure they started, but give AAA titles. Now I feel lucky to get one or two games a month, this is what I don’t get; If when your + subscription runs out you cant access the games until you renew, Why don’t sony give games that make people want to renew

man, i havent finished bioshock 1 on the 360. i played about 25% of the way thru yrs ago and never got back to it yet.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 7:56 am

@501 Yes, but which are you more likely to finish? I got BioShock 2 from Gamestop for $11.99 months ago and I might get Batman AC GOTY in the future.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 8:01 am

@504 I have BioShock 1 & 2 on 360 & PS3. I don’t think you know that BioShock 1 did come out for PS3 a year after it came out for 360.

I think that’s why Irrational is including it as a bonus on BioShock Infinite disc.

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 8:04 am

@505 its not about which I am most likely finish its about who’s getting the better deal US or EU.

But since you asked, I prefer Arkham City over Bioshock 2 at any given point of time.

kuxirock said:

December 4th, 8:12 am

I really wish we were the European PS+ right now. We get Bioshock 2… They get Vanquish. I was really hoping for some Cuhrazee action from P*.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 8:25 am

@507 Agreed. In both games, you’re going at the end, “What just happened?”

I think at this point, Morgan should bring up BioShock 1 being on the PS Store for some time, in case others forgot about it.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 8:26 am

@508 I think Vanquish wasn’t that good compared to BioShock 2.

December 4th, 8:30 am

Hey sorry to post here i didnt see anyone else mentioning it. I dont see it on the playstation plus area for free. Am I missing something or did they not update it yet?

luis_xvirus said:

December 4th, 8:32 am

Oh great! PS+ is really cool :’D Bioshock 2!!

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 8:44 am

Light_wish01 said:

    The PS Store normally updates anytime between 11am – 5pm PST on Tuesdays. The blog will have a post when it’s all live and at that point, you’ll be able to see the new Plus deals.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 9:06 am

@514 Later in the day. around the same time as the PS Store gets updated.

hst_gonzo420 said:

December 4th, 9:16 am

Not complaining, but JW i read about Bioshock 2 coming to Instant Games on PS Plus, but i looked and i don’t see it…If its not on, oh well i know we will continue to get awesome hits from sony, thanks for all you guys do

hst_gonzo420 said:

December 4th, 9:17 am

Lol scratch that, maybe i should have taken time to read other comments, thanks again guys

Frulond said:

I seriously doubt you’ll read this but… if you pair your PS Vita with your PS3 and turn on “Remote Start” then you could (if no ports are blocked or anything) remotely start and access your PS3 from you PS Vita and select the content you want from the store, even start downloading it and turning off your PS3 again when done.

Not always works as it should and there used to be a glitch that turned on the PS3 randomly that I don’t know if it has been fix.

Anyway, hope it helps.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 9:29 am

@Morgan Would you please mention BioShock 1 being on the PS Store, even though it was months back?

labam88 said:

December 4th, 9:32 am

I’m really enjoying Playstation Plus and I’m looking forward to getting Bioshock 2. I’m also planning on getting a vita soon so PS+ is about to get even better for me.

As a request, I would love to see some of the Disgaea games get added to the PS+ collection. They are some of my favorite games (as you can tell from my avatar) and it would be great for more people to be able to check them out.

Thanks for taking the time to respond to people’s comments Morgan!

Another game I’ve zero interest in. Another bad month. Ugh…

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 9:49 am

@523 You never played BioShock?

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 9:58 am

@524 C’mon you have never played Playstation exclusive games like Uncharted or God of War?

The_Wildfox said:

December 4th, 10:00 am

@The_Dukenator More like I HATE BioShock. Tried the first game once thinking it might be something a little different…never could get into it, got bored with it, and gave it up within the first thirty to sixty minutes. I also despises FPS games in general (at least the ones this gen), so that adds to it.

Francofone said:

December 4th, 10:04 am

This update is very weak. Bioshock 2? For those of you excited to play that game I kind of wonder why you haven’t played it already or why that game would interest you when it’s leagues inferior to its predecessor. When you settle for or have low expectations then you will receive mediocrity and because of this I’m not renewing my membership which expires in a few days. I’ll be back on board when they decide to step up their game.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:05 am

@525 Uncharted sounds a bit like Tomb Raider. Years ago, I had own a ps1 & ps2, didn’t play or own many games on it. Then I gets a 360, played that for a few years. Finally, get a PS3 and catch up on a lot of game that I missed out on.

@526 Its different with plasmids unlike other games. You should try Prey.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:06 am

@527 Go play Duke Nukem Forever, then come back here.

The_Wildfox said:

December 4th, 10:07 am

@The_Dukenator Hate that game, too. Like I said, I hate ALL FPS games, so no!

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 10:08 am

@528 ok what about Killzone & Infamous

Francofone said:

December 4th, 10:09 am

@529 Nah, with Sony’s current trend it will be free for + members next year.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:09 am

@530 Which game? Prey?

@528 I didn’t play Infamous 1, but had played the second one.

The_Wildfox said:

December 4th, 10:12 am

@The_Dukenator Yes, Prey!

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:13 am

@532 Its like $10 or less at Gamestop.

jasonstreet said:

December 4th, 10:13 am

I realize I may not get a reply because there are already so many comments but I’m going to ask this anyways. I love the game selection and so far one of my favorite games on here has got to be outland my question is is there anything that can be done about the serious lag issue that is happening when playing online with this game. I have no issues with playing online with other ps plus games such as resident evil 5 but outland lags to the point that its virtually unplayable Can you help me with this situation? I will post again with store update and next week because as I said I understand I am adding this a bit late in the reply posting period.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:14 am

@534 I have it on 360 & PC. It was a bit annoying with its Death Walk.

Michzadood said:

December 4th, 10:17 am

muchas gracias por este update, siempre e querido jugar bioshock pero no habia tenido la oportunidad de conseguirlo en fisico, pero aparte de eso ustedes deberian de ponerse al nivel de PS+ EU y por lo menos regalar juegos de la talla de los que ellos dan y asi to el mundo feliz, gracias.

Francofone said:

December 4th, 10:18 am

@535 As it should be because that game is awful and I’d never play that. In fact I don’t even know why that game was referenced to my comment since I was talking about Bioshock 2 and you mentioning DNF and comparing it to Bio 2 is silly. There’s always going to be a worst game evar. Doesn’t mean we should play it and be thankful for those games that are better than it.

maxseth said:

December 4th, 10:22 am

Please, give us Batman: Arkham City like EU Store!! Thanks!!

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:33 am

@539 There are plenty of bad games out there, but I’m picky on what to play.

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 10:46 am

@541 What genre u play?

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 10:49 am

@540 LMFAO not gonna happen this month or next month or month after that. We will always get bargain bin games unlike EU.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:53 am

@542/543 Action mostly., but I do play other genres. Note the 10 other pages of comments.

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 10:58 am

@540 If you want the game so bad, just go down to Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 10:58 am

@544 then you should first play GOW series. I recommend you to play that before trying other games. There are 5 games in total till now for GOW and next year we are getting another one. And then talking about action games EU got Darksiders exclusive and we got hmmm?

jabberosx said:

December 4th, 11:01 am


You said it @blackiemist88 this blows… And this is not the first time EU has gotten better deals. RDR anyone ? US has been repeatedly saying watch this space.. watch this space.. I am just sad. And I just renewed my Plus subscription.. Might as well have bought the EU subscription instead of this waste penny bargain bin games. (repeatedly)

Sony.. what are you doing. Seriously. Cant we get any love ? Suddenly US PSN PLUS and by relation “us” feels underrated and unappreciated. Like our $$ are not worth good games. Sure EURO is going better than $$ but pleaseeeeee … :(

The_Dukenator said:

December 4th, 11:09 am

@546 Maybe someday. Just have way too many things going on.

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 11:13 am

@546 hmmm but you had time to play Bioshock 2 and Duke Nukem BS

sab_krit said:

December 4th, 11:20 am

@547 LMFAO, dude sony already got and getting money from US subscribers so they don’t have to promote plus to US people by giving good games. Where as in EU they are trying to sell Plus thus they get good games. Dont ever have high hopes that you will ever get treated as EU subscribers at present. Maybe in future EU plus will downgrade their quality and quantity of retail games to our level.
