PlayStation Plus Update: Ninja Gaiden Sigma Free for Members

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

January is almost over, and we have one more Plus update for you, but first let’s reminisce on this month’s offerings, shall we? Plus member freebies included NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, Darksiders, Mega Man 9 and 10, along with Foosball 2012, and we there were some awesome deals with the 13 for ’13 discounts (last day is today). Topping it all off was access to the God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta, and the 12+3 Plus promotion where you can buy one year of Plus and get three extra months at no additional cost; which is active right now.

We’re sending January off by welcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PS Vita, free for Plus members! There are also some amazing PSN gems at fantastic prices that you may have missed. Read on and enjoy the update, which takes effect when the PlayStation Store updates on January 29th.

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita to purchase, or click here to get instant access via the Sony Entertainment Network online store.

…excuse me, I meant the 29th of this month. Thank you. =)

Sevyne said:

January 29th, 10:43 am

You are telling me not to do something that you are guilty of far worse than I am. From the start of this entire thing all I wanted to know was why you called me out and instead of answering the question and easily settling it their you resorted to straight trolling tactics.

You personality shifts are just too much, but whatever. I’m done going back and forth over this.

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 10:46 am

@sab_krit, I meant a list of titles, for example: Deus Ex, Red Dead Redemption, ummm… NFS titles, maybe Battlefield 3. And add to that a couple of decent PSN games like Counter Strike Go, or something. But each week voting could start the day after each PS Store update (Wednesday).

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 10:51 am

@Sevyne – Good job! Let it slide by if you didn’t understand what I am trying to tell ya!

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 10:52 am

Oh and let’s not forget the Vita people. They can have a vote on Vita titles as well as PS3 titles. I don’t discriminate :)

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 10:54 am

@Talon39 – Instead of them giving us the choice, Y cant they say what genre game they can get us next week and we try to tell them which title we would like to have that way if not this month they can get rights for that game in couple-a months?

TitleOne said:

January 29th, 10:55 am

sab krit,

Serious question, how old are you?

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 10:55 am

or get the rights for second or third highest voted games.

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 10:57 am

@TitleOne –

Serious question, Y u trying to find groom for ur daughter?

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 10:57 am

or ur mother!

TitleOne said:

January 29th, 11:02 am

Wow, thanks for proving my point.

Not sure why anyone wastes their time trying to have an serious discussion with you when you don’t even try to act like it, not to mention your crap spelling. Pretty insulting, not surprised people see you as a troll.

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 11:04 am

That would be kind of vague. The genre? If they can give us set titles they can get rights to by the week to vote on or as you said by the month, then whatever doesn’t get voted highly, they would know that people didn’t like those titles and not worry about giving those out in the future. What I’m saying here is that by giving us a vote on the titles, they essentially kill two birds with one stone. People are happy getting a say in what titles they get, and Sony gets feedback on what titles we as users don’t want.

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 11:23 am

@sab_krit, not saying your idea isn’t a bad one by any means, but I just think Sony could be able to tell us what titles they would be able to get licenses to release to PS+ and by giving us specific title names to choose from, it would help all involved.

RE4LNOiZE_42 said:

January 29th, 11:44 am

@ sab_krit,

I think it would be a bit too complicated to ask people what “type of game” they’d want next month. First, because I think discussions with a publisher might take longer than that. Second, what if Sony can’t find a game to give in that particular genre? Not every publisher would agree on giving out a title because PS+ subscribers asked for it. (Because if so many people asks for it, it means the game has potential to sell, you know. There’s a demand for it).

Also, it would probably mean that we’ll be constantly seeing the same type of games over and over again, meaning probably FPS or third-person shooters all the time. Sometimes maybe a racing game thrown in.

But what is interesting (to me, at least) is that sometimes, a free game non PS+ is something you wouldn’t have bought in the first place, and it then take you by surprise by being a lot of fun. It makes me discover new games and I like it like that. If the subscribers were to steer PS+ in the direction they wanted, it becomes ALL about what most people want, which usually tends to be somewhat always the same thing. Or same genres.

Don’t you think that would complicate things and in the end, ruin PS+ for many?

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 11:44 am

@Talon39 – maybe yes but if all the titles they choose are like bargain bin games, I dont see how it will help this cause. ppl will still say that EU got a new release but we hv only bargain bin games to choose from. But yeah I understand ur point too. BUt at the least they can choose from giving us the option to choose from like they did during the welcome back pack.

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 11:48 am

@RE4LNOiZE_42 Yeah maybe they can rotate the genre from the highest voted genre in one month to the second voted genre to the next month and so.
I mean they already took a poll from us, asking for which genre we would want to have. Now they can also hv a poll of what game we would want in that particular genre.

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 12:18 pm

@sab_krit, double voting seems a bit much. Especially when Sony could just give us a list of games they get licenses for to give Plus users a vote on what they want for every week. I know we have tended to get bargain bin games mostly, but to sweeten the deal, how about voting on full game titles? On recent blogs when EU got Deus Ex, people were griping in masses that we didn’t get it. I agree that it would be an awesome game to have for our instant collection, but some people don’t realize that each region has their own rights to certain games. EU got Deus Ex and we get, say, Borderlands. We could get Battlefield 3 (not that that would ever happen) and EU could get Dynasty Warriors GUNDAM. And, yes it does seem like EU has been getting awesome games over the last several months, but apparently they got the better dice roll so-to-speak.

Just noticed Morgan replied to my comment last night.

Thanks Morgan, I know I can get a bit riled up, but it was just annoying seeing people act as if the Vita game this week replaced something they assumed they were going to get for the PS3.

Keep the Vita games coming, I’m actually MORE excited for the Vita games than PS3 games.

If you do decide to add another monthly Vita games though, no complaints here! lol.

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 12:28 pm

@Talon39 – double voting is not too much, its all about starting something new which is a bit tough then it will get used to. If ppl hv time to come in and give negative comments on what they get, dont u think they can spend some time voting twice to get a content which they will be pleased upon and Sony have a plus team I guess which can really do these surveys and polls to give the subscribers what they want from what they can afford. If EU can satisfy a big chunk of their customers on a regular basis, I guess US can also do some work on what to do to make a big chunk of their customers happy. And for that they need more inputs, thru survey or poll.
I dont think every week they getting “nothing for me this week” voted most or second most gives any input of what the customers want from them. Instead they can ask what the customers what they would want to have other than nothing for me this week. If possible put in the poll of the games what customers want and try to get rights for that.

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 12:29 pm

@mnstrings LOL, I also saw that, he asked u politely to quit being a b****.

TwinDad said:

January 29th, 12:41 pm


It would be impossible for an open vote on PS+ content. Example, I’m sure thousands would vote for BLOPS2, there is -1000000000% chance of that ever being a free game on PS+. It would have to be a selection of games that could come at one point to PS+.

The closest we got to voting was the genre poll a few weeks back. I’m hoping we now see RPG games on PS+. I know however that it might take 6-8 month to implement.

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 12:48 pm

@TwinDad – Yeah maybe they can give a poll on set games of feasible titles of a genre, of course BOPS 2 is not possible but they can atleast let us know of the titles which will be feasible to give and ask us to choose one from that, instead of building a suspense and giving us bargain bin games. By building suspense, I mean like EU already announced they are getting “Sleeping Dogs” in february so as a US plus subscriber my anticipation is built a lot already hoping to get something on par.

TwinDad said:

January 29th, 12:57 pm


That would be great on the poll. The way I see it however the list of games that they would be willing/able to give away would be short, mostly ensuring that any title listed on that poll would come to PS+ eventually maybe just not first.

I’m thinking the same thing. I’m now curious about February and what it holds compared to EU, it will interesting for sure.

I believe that the Genre poll is a step in the right direction. I believe another good step would be people listing what games they would like to see in the comments. Morgan takes the feedback to the team, and I suspect that thousand of posts of “May we have Sleeping Dogs for US PS+” would go a long way to get that content to the US if it is possible. Not pointing at you here, but those EU has better content doesn’t help get better content if people do not list games they want to see. It’s like a Birthday, if you don’t give me a list of what you want how can I get you a good present.

TitleOne said:

January 29th, 1:07 pm


wow swearing at someone?

Last time I checked you were supposed to refrain from doing so.

Do that again to anyone, I’m seriously going to email the blog, do whatever I can to either get your stuff deleted it ban you.

There’s no reason to use that kind of tone with anyone on here.

I hope someone from the Blog team sees your post, so they have you on their radar.

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 1:07 pm

@sab_krit, @TwinDad, again if they give Plus users a list of games they have rights to put on PS+ for free, that’s what i’m saying. Obviously not BO2. lol

Busca-Cabezas said:

January 29th, 1:27 pm

PS3 + PSVita + PlayStation Plus = WOW! I gotta say, SONY, I’m MOVED! *Thumbs Up!

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 1:27 pm


Please! dont say Morgon I used swear words, don’t make a copy of my post or take a pic of my post and email it to hmmm the said one and ban me or delete my post. Please! I am so afraid of u now, my eyes fulla tears. I dont want to get banned wahhhh
wahhhh *facepalm* stupid kid!
Now go back to do ur homework or u will get F!

Nice job trolling! :) Next comment try explaining, why u dont like the plus service or is it ur dad who didn’t want to waste his money getting u a plus subscription?

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 1:29 pm

@Talon39, @TwinDad – Yeah to have a poll on what game titles we would like to have of their possible list would be a g8t addition.

DjStiv3 said:

January 29th, 1:37 pm

jeez man just when i was considering gettin ninja gaiden it becomes free.. thats so awesome HOWEVER i still need to get the cartridge i cant use up my mem card space for any vita games especially not AAA games when they use so much damn room just bought a 16gb and its not enough neither my 8gb no my new 16gb isnt.. christ the 32 wouldnt do much either… we need a 64gb vita mem card for 69.99 that would be awesome and i would never complain again

Talon39 said:

January 29th, 1:46 pm

@sab_krit, @TwinDad, so, how do we submit our idea? Most importantly, how do we get it implemented?

sab_krit said:

January 29th, 2:05 pm

@Talon39 – I dont know, If Morgan says what he does i.e., looking at every comments. We dont hv to do something special from our side to get this idea implemented. He will talk to his board members regarding this and do something or reply something regarding this.

sweetdreamz9999 said:

January 29th, 2:57 pm

Skiedragon81 said:

January 29th, 3:00 pm

yea i saw the same thing, the store is updated and the game isnt free it isnt the first time they screwed up remember gta ? it took them almost a month to get that fixed they claimed no responsibility for that sigh, i also noticed that the american store seems to take extra “help” being updated why Eu and JP always have their stores updated quickly hell even Microsoft meets deadlines even if they are a lot easier since even the xbox uses win 8 architecture.

Skiedragon81 said:

January 29th, 3:01 pm

im sure they will correct it… i hope

sweetdreamz9999 said:

January 29th, 3:03 pm

TainoGunslinger said:

Yep, downloading it right now. :)

fegussen said:
