    It’s shaping up to be a great game; so definitely make use of that launch week discount!

May 13th, 10:09 am

Polls are still acting weirdly, with me having to answer twice to compute my vote, second time with the answers in a different order.

Anyways, can’t wait to try Knytt Underground. These PSN games are really fun to play as an intermediary between finishing one full game and starting another. :)

Sweet Knytt Underground i have been wanting to try this game.

Keep stepping up the games NA PS+

SiriusCJS said:

May 13th, 10:12 am

I’m highly interested in Metro, but think I’ll avoid spending that much on digital content. I do appreciate the launch discount though. Can’t say that I dig another indie game either. Would much rather have fun party-type local multuplayer game. Or even something that highlights PS Move.

BlueRobotX said:

May 13th, 10:12 am

I was hoping there would be a PS+ discount for Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery oh well nothing for me (I already have Knytt Underground) this week.

CaptainRadical said:

May 13th, 10:13 am

Knytt is awesome, bought it when it was on sale a while back. Kinda disappointed there’s no better sales. I would have thought considering there’s almost no new games releasing this week that maybe some DLC or Older games could have been put on sale.

And I just want to state it for the record. PSP games are great for the ICG, just stop with the damn fighting games. Even Vita fighting games…. Stop. Give it a rest already. Wait at least 3-4 months before you put another fighter in there.

was hoping for more discounts on other games but Grid 2 pre order for me nice one Morgan & good luck with your exam : )

@Morgan: Can you tell us yet if Ratchet & Clank All 4 One; LittleBigPlanet 2, and inFamous 2 will be rotated out of the IGC next month?

    We’ll always update you on what’s coming and going on the PS Blog channels; but nothing to share on those games leaving Plus at this time.

poodude said:

May 13th, 10:14 am

Great update. Kinda wish I wasn’t so obsessed with having a physical copy of my games, otherwise I’d definitely take advantage of that Metro: Last Light discount.

Guess it’s just Knytt Underground for me!

SiriusCJS said:

May 13th, 10:14 am

Oh, & why again can’t we see the poll results? I remember Morgan explaining it, but I would really love to know what others think about the content & the questions.

Knytt Undergound post says “Download today”, but um, it’s not free until tomorrow?

    Morgan Haro said:

    May 13th, 2:18 pm

    Sorry not sure where you see this? The game is available now, but of course, if you’re a Plus member, you’ll want to wait until tomorrow to downlaod it when it is set to be free for members.

viceforce said:

May 13th, 10:15 am

A plus Discount for Metro Last Light. Awesome as one person said early I hope it includes the DLC, I wish my check would come sooner.

Anddo said:

May 13th, 10:15 am

Great price for Metro, that’s as cheap as the PC version.

GT-420 said:

May 13th, 10:16 am

BTW, sleeping dogs has been absolutely fantastic, I think this is the best IGC game so far and I’ve been a day 1 plus subscriber.

    Awesome, glad you’re enjoying it! I’m playing through it myself too. Not too far in it yet (maybe about 2 hours in), but now that I have a bit more free time, I should be able to get into it more. Liking what I’ve played so far

Mando44646 said:

May 13th, 10:17 am

That’s a great discount for Metro! I wish that was on my list to buy, but unfortunately it is not.

I bought Knytt on sale a while ago for Vita and really couldnt get into it.

Looking forward to yet another fighting game on Vita for next week’s PS Plus update :/

leotherf said:

May 13th, 10:17 am

I’m not really into the games we’re getting this week, though it is cool to be getting 20% off a new game, even if it’s not a game I’m interested in. Good update.

xClayMeow said:

May 13th, 10:17 am

Looking forward to playing Knytt on my Vita!

As for the poll, I voted that the PSP titles add some value, but I’d rather have native Vita titles. In all honesty, I barely play any of the PSP titles given and there are very few PSP titles I’d actually want (the GoW games are probably the only ones simply because there’s no GoW Vita game…yet).

I know it sounds pretty stupid, but maybe if PSP games were updated with trophies, there would be some incentive to play them, but as it is now, until I exhaust my Vita collection, there really is little point to play them.

While i already have Knytt Underground since release, i highly recommend it to any indie lovers out there. Just waiting on that borderlands Krieg DLC.

DonkeyKongKilla said:

May 13th, 10:21 am

First off, Just want to say, I loved Sleeping dogs, which is now my first platinum trophy game. Took less than a week which is a little upsetting and I was trying to space it out and wasn’t playing it much. Nevertheless it was a good one for here. bravo for that to the team and your input on what we wanted as a community. Next Knytt Underground isn’t something of my taste and I will not be trying it. But many others seem to wanted this pushed out on plus so Kudos on that too.

I tried the demo of Knytt Underground and didn’t like so I think that nothing for me this week!! Let’s wait for any interesting discount in the full update!!

gusty81 said:

May 13th, 10:27 am

Already have Knytt Underground (great addition to the IGC for those that don’t have it), so nothing for me this week. Waiting for Pinball Arcade.

Any chance that NA is getting Velocity Ultra anytime soon? Not to pile on to the “EU is better than NA” complaints, but Europe gets it this week for free, and we aren’t getting it at all. Any info on this, Morgan? Eagerly anticipating playing this game!

ASC2175 said:

May 13th, 10:27 am

Well, seems like I’ve got another week until Blazblue, till then, Sleeping Dogs and Knytt….and moar Poker Night 2.

T3DV0L70L1N4 said:

May 13th, 10:30 am

Thanks for the update. As usual, here’s my weekly request for IGC games:

God of War (any/all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
Grand Theft Auto (any/all games in the series)
Metal Gear Solid HD collection for PS3, digital version of MGS4
Red Dead Redemption
Saints Row 3
Uncharted (any/all games in the series)

Also, could you add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store? It’s available in all regions except North America, and it’s also the only MGS game I haven’t played!

remanutd5 said:

Ps3: Motorstorm Apocalypse, Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time, Resistance 3

Psvita: Resistance Burning Skies, ModNation Racers Road Trip, Unit 13, Rayman, Sonic&All Stars Racing Transformed

Morgan I have a question that has not been answered yet on the forums. There are some sources on the internet such as PS3T.ORG and the news feed on the Gamefly website that say that BlazBlue was to be on both Vita and PS3 but I saw nothing in last weeks PS+ post that mentioned it being for ps3 so i assumed that it was only for Vita. I was really hoping it would be for ps3 as well but can you confirm if it is for Vita only or both consoles(from PS+).

    This version of BlazBlue is the one that is only on PS Vita. It will be coming later this month.

Glad to see Knytt Underground added to the IGC cant wait to play it Wednesday.

TwinDad said:

May 13th, 10:41 am


It was stated that tends to take the comments towards “See Sony, everybody thinks XXXX game sucks. Your not doing it right”. Instead of what was posted above with the “I voted for PSP game are okay but I want Vita”.

It’s to get more constructive feedback.


I’m just fine with getting PSP games, however about some different genres besides fighting please.

EagerSnake said:

May 13th, 10:41 am

Great addition to the IGC. Now, I need to ask you for Battlefield 3, please.

TwinDad said:

May 13th, 10:43 am


It was confirmed in last weeks comments to be only for the PS Vita. They had a typo on the original post that said PS3, but the subtitle of the game only exists for PS Vita. The post has been updated to the correct format and title.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND (PS Vita)

NickMulder said:

May 13th, 10:48 am

Whoa! TWENTY PERCENT DISCOUNT ON METRO?!?! You guys! That’s an EXCELLENT discount for a day one release!! Discounts like this are what really makes Plus worth it! Even more so than the IGC!

No, i would be dissapointed to see them (PSP classics) in PLUS.

I mean there were never been and never will be any PS2 classics in PLUS, right?

Fardeenah said:

waiting for guacamelee to come on plus someday as well as thomas was alone. i dont feel like buying psn titles when i have ps plus

xFuzylilManPeach said:

May 13th, 10:53 am

Knytt should be fun :) Sleeping Dogs is still keeping me quite busy though.

Thank you guys!

Phillyblunz said:

May 13th, 10:55 am

Thing is the game is still too expensive as a digital title.

Hard copies should be $60 as they have resale value of at least $10-$20 for a long time.

Digital copies should never be more then $40, as they will never have that $20 resale value and so are worth at least $20 less, day one release or not.

That would put a reasonable plus discount to around $30-$35 to be considered any sort of “deal”.

Games we need to see in IGC:
-Starhawk Multiplayer
-Playstation Allstars Battle Royal.

Plus helps to strengthen online communities via IGC, these games are amazing but due to lack of adverstising have less then appropriate numbers online.

next to just cause 2 sleeping dogs is my favorite free game since I got PSN+. i’ve been a member for about a year now and it’s well worth the price. I hope PSN+ continues to be awesome with the ps4.

I played knytt at a best buy on a vita, it’s not really for me, but i’m still playing sleeping dogs so it’s ok. was kinda hoping for more sales, but still decent for those wanting metro.

Squiggle55 said:

May 13th, 11:07 am

Really happy to get Knytt Underground for free, thanks!

The PSP vote was difficult for me, I almost voted for prefering Vita games, but I ended up voting for there are great PSP games that could add value to the instant game collection. But I mean that quite literally. I would only want to see PSP games added to the IGC if they are “great”. There are great RPGs and Action/Adventure games on PSP, and obviously I would love to have an honest to goodness blockbuster PSP game in place of a bad vita game.

ChrisHighwind said:

May 13th, 11:09 am

How convenient, I buy a new PS3, get a 1-year PS+ membership, and already managed to get at least half of the price I paid for my PS3 in free games. I see PS+ has improved since I was last a subscriber.

Like others have said, looking forward to Knytt Underground, really liking Sleeping Dogs, and I hope the PSP games continue to be a part of plus.

I really like that we are getting both versions of Knytt Underground. Very cool update.
