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.

@Lazo87 – Did you even go thru the whole conversation bfore when we talked abt genre? Please go thru them bfore making comments without knowing whats going on.This is no way helping anyone other than being a good troll post! Not being mean, just my opinion.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 1:13 pm

@melodicmizery – So whats ur suggestion to get quality games?

Lazo87 said:

January 30th, 1:24 pm


Read every word but you can have any opinion you want i seriously could care less. Just because i disagree with you that makes me a troll? Surveys are all well and good but it all depends on the sampling populate and as it stands now a populate with an infatuation with crap like call of duty i wouldnt trust that data as accurate as it may be.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 1:36 pm

@Lazo87 – LOL, U still didn’t read the previous posts. No use, U just want to be troll. Be a troll. Happy trolling! Until u read the whole conversation, ur comments on voting will be just a troll post. I am not going to explain what was going on from the begining who joins in the middle of the conversation for the purpose of trolling.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 1:40 pm

@Lazo87 – I am not calling you a troll cuz u disagree with me. cuz even RE4LNOiZE_42 disagrees but he was from the begingin of the conversation, but u joined in the middle and put in some irrelevant comments abt the whole conversation, that is called trolling.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 1:44 pm

@Lazo87 – Ur comments maybe true but when seen from the context of the whole conversation, its irrlevant and basically begging to restart the whole thing from the very begining. If you dont have patience to go thru the whole conversation, why would you want to join in the middle of something and talk something irrelevant to the ongoing conversation?

Lazo87 said:

January 30th, 1:57 pm

No trying to restart anything i was just adding MY opinion on having the majority choose the games but you found the need to act as if you own this whole conversation and anything not congruent with your ideas are unacceptable.

SandBryz said:

January 30th, 1:59 pm

I dont like this, because i dont have a ps vita, i will buy ps plus soon but i dont like the idea of get ps vita content in side of get ps3 content. You should make 2 differents service of that or something, because i think is gonna be a kinda annoying the idea of get ps vita content when i dont have one and be paying for ps3 content.

Anyways great service, i´m still waiting to see more better games like EU Version.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 2:03 pm

@Lazo87 – Dude, u r going nowhere by not understanding and repeating the same stuff. Ur opinion on voting is fine, but the conversation is just not that. You are trying to restart everything. Your opinion on something which is not being discussed is what unacceptable.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 2:04 pm

@Lazo87 – If you want to start something, please go ahead no problem. But stop trolling other conversations, fruitless!

Lazo87 said:

January 30th, 2:11 pm

Who said i wanted to have conversation with you lol when i do i name you but in that instance i didnt hence it was not aim at you but instead AGAIN it was just my damn opinion but you seem to think everything revolves around YOU and everything must be in the context and flow of you present conversation. I sure do apologize for confusing this with a public sony comment section when in fact its a “Sab_krit ” comment section. Again sorry for my misunderstanding there.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 2:20 pm

@Lazo87 – I am sry that I didnt understand you were commenting on a non existing conversation because sony never made a statement of getting a voting for games. I thought you were trolling MY conversation with RE4LNOize, when you were ofcourse making a public comment on a non existing conversation! LOL I am sry I didnt’ think that u might be one of that kind who just makes some random comments, oh wait yeah still that is called trolling. Now I know u were not trolling MY conversation, I will let go of it. You keep trolling this page for all I care:D.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 2:21 pm

@SandBryz – Look at comment 120 and 129. That might answer some of ur questions!

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 2:24 pm

Your applogy is accepted. But still trolling does not help anyone even if it is not MY comment you were trolling! LOL

Lazo87 said:

January 30th, 2:31 pm


Now i see why you are so upset with me i made fun of your game. You are one of those bozos who buy call of duty year after year and think its the best game out there lol

Lefoul-123 said:

January 30th, 3:40 pm

Nothing for ps3, not even a good discount, I mean you own the rigths to a lot of games and yet you discount just one crappy game.

sab_krit said:

January 30th, 3:45 pm

@Lazo87 – LOL! Dude u play all soccer games, Now I understand y u r mad on everyone. your dad doesn’t buy u any games meant for above 18 audience. No wonder u talk like a kid annoyed over his dad for not buying him games which his friends get to play. but still dont understand y ur dad bought u GOW! Even ur comments prove that u r not matured enuf to have a valid conversation. *facepalm* dang it wasted a good chunk of time with a kid.

Lefoul-123 said:

January 30th, 4:04 pm

Next thing you know europe gets GTAV and we get another PSN game discount.

Lazo87 said:

January 30th, 4:13 pm

i think someone has me confused lol its sad that you are too inept to analyze a profile. 1/85 = 0.01%

meFreeman said:

January 30th, 5:12 pm

Now this is some decent plus update.

avluis said:

January 30th, 5:43 pm

OK guys, let me answer this PS+ US or EU debate:
If you like this place, http://goo.gl/maps/KewCr, then get PS+ for US and keep your PSN Blog posts on this url:
If you like this place, or live in it, http://goo.gl/maps/7xq5a, then you get PS+ for EU and keep your PSN Blog post on this url:
I don’t care if you can’t seem to know the difference between region deals and licensing but at least stop comparing the services.
The only way that Sony will offer the same games for both regions is for the Playstation Store to implement this as a whole, meaning, one PS Store for the whole world.
I would personally love that since I will be able to import my games straight from Japan into my PS Vita and PS3 and maybe PS4(if it doesn’t come crippled).
Think about this, I’m not pointing at anyone specifically, but think about what you complain about every weekly update and instead complain about the issues that lie underneath.
PS+ can be a hell of a lot better, but if what is running it in the first place is no good, then why do you think the offspring will be any good (This comment is not aimed at any CEO or COO or Manager or whatever, so keep your bashing or trolling away from it).

@Lazo87 – lol the way u mention my id and say someone got u confussed is so funny and yep 1/85 = 0.01% but 1/100 is 0.01% to be exact.

sab_krit said:

January 31st, 6:56 am

lol someone is actually a battlefield fan that’s y he’s so angry on COD cuz his favorite franchize is always second best in that genre year after year and will be always.

January 31st, 6:57 am

@psycho_maniac189 – Y this month sucks?

Sevyne said:

January 31st, 7:57 am

Man are you really still trolling in here sab? Thought you would have moved on to one of the other updates by now.

sab_krit said:

January 31st, 8:08 am

@Sevyne – I am interested only in the plus update :). I am not a troll to go at every post which is of less interest to me and post there. :)

There wasnt any good games for ps console users in January for ps+ besides the discounts……….17bux for 3 months isnt bad though, hopefully february brings some good deals, Ps+ uk has way better free games.

In the past three months, not a single game appeals to me. We all have different tastes, however, playstayion america has not released a decent AAA title since i have subbed and after this expires, i will no longer sub due to the crap titles and support. I am very disappointed that EU gets all these great titles while SCEA can’t afford to market AAA titles above 15 dollars. I know you do not control the ability to release game morgan, but these titles are poo!

~ AGV ~

P.S I don’t read peoples’ comments so say what you like, but it will never see my eyes haters.

ArmyGuyVince said:

February 2nd, 1:45 am

Also, instead of releasing one title for PS3 or for only PS Vita, release titles that are multi platform as previously done! Releasing a PS Vita game when PS3 is HUGELY MORE USED is the worst mistake ever! Vita users will love it but us PS3 Players will be annoyed with it..

(let the flame wars begin)

P.S i don’t read other persons’ comments so don’t waste your breath!

ArmyGuyVince said:

February 2nd, 1:49 am

garbage game and a waste of my money and time. support PS3 as i will now throw out my vita or sell it at a scrap yard! all my ps vita games suck so far…..

P.S; hater comments incoming!
P.S.S I dont read comments after i post so i dont plan on reading what you have to say after im done posting this

Hey guys. I don’t know if you actually read the customer feedback/responses here, but I just wanted to post this anyway. I recently subscribed to Playstation Plus (one week before you made Ninja Gaiden Sigma free), and I was very, very on the fence about it.

Anyway, it was more than worth it, and I just wanted to give a warm, heartfelt thanks for giving us Vita gamers an AAA title like Ninja Gaiden Sigma for free. It was such a wonderful surprise when I went to the PSN store and saw I was able to get this entire game for nothing more than the cost of my PS plus subscription. I remembered this game fondly from when I owned it on a PS3, and it’s every bit as good on Vita.

I’ve already logged like 10+ hours into it, and I’m going to get back to it now. Again, I don’t know if you guys read these comments, but a sincere thanks from New York for this wonderful offering!
