PlayStation Plus: Shadow of the Colossus Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Specialist

Those poor, poor Colossi. All they want is be left alone to wander majestically, but if you want to save your lady friend, you’re gonna have to bring them down. I know. Take a minute to prepare your mental state, and then make sure your hard drive is ready for this awesome game when it becomes free for PlayStation Plus members tomorrow. There are also discounts on some Activision titles including classic titles like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.

All of these PS Plus benefits will be available after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 10/8.

Nothing for me this week. I was hoping we’d get Hotline Miami so I could try to beat it before Pokemon steals all my free time.

StingrayX said:

October 7th, 8:10 am

Awesome! One of my favorite PS2 games =D.

Isidrera said:

October 7th, 8:10 am

I have a few questions about ps plus after the ps4 launch:
1 – is there gonna be games on the IGC for ps4 in december already?
2 – can you put the ps4 games on your download list even if you dont ghave a ps4 and download it when you get one?
3 – Is the PS3 IGC gonna be smaler after the ps4 games coming in?
4 – How many games a month are there gonna be for PS4?
5 – How many games a month are there gonna be for PS3(after ps4 launch)?
6 – Is the PS4 gonna count to de 2 console maximun for account downloads(making it only piossible for you to download content on your PS3 and PS4)?
7 – Is PS4 IGC gonna have anual(like ps3′s Uncharted 3, XCOM, and LBPC) games or just the monthly games?
8 – is the PS3 anaual game collection going to be renewed in the folloing years?
9 – How long until PS3 IGC dissapears only leaving the vita and PS4?
I know those are a lot of questions, but I think I am not the only one with dose doubts.

Nothing for Vita users? =(

Unless Crash and Spyro are coming, then that would be awesome

FireGuy13 said:

October 7th, 8:13 am

Fast & Furious still isn’t worth it at that price. Or any price for that matter lol. Definitely looking forward to some of the new games being released though. Beyond, Orc Attack, and Worms on the Vita!!

jostrea said:

October 7th, 8:15 am

Hey Morgan just a quick question, will the PSone games work for the vita?

antper08 said:

October 7th, 8:16 am

Seems like a good opportunity for me to get The Amazing Spider Man as well as Shadow of the Colossus, though there is a typo. The Amazing Spider Man regular price is $49.99.

IceColdKilla44 said:

October 7th, 8:17 am

Wow, haven’t seen a PS1 classic sale in a while?

Does this mean the Crash & Spyro games finally work on Vita?

dh4645 said:

October 7th, 8:18 am

will my SoTC save file from the disc version work/load with the digital version?

i’m assuming yes, but want to make sure before i sell of the HD collection I have.

BlueBl1zzard said:

October 7th, 8:19 am

That reminds me, I gotta go back and finish Shadow of the Colossus : )

Also, glad to see Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD finally going on sale.

Teflon02 said:

October 7th, 8:20 am

Lol Leave it to Sony to rub in the fact that I’ve waited over a year to transfer my Crash games to the Vita. Yet everywhere but where I live has been playing it…

TigerStealth said:

October 7th, 8:22 am

No Hotline Miami? I was really hoping to see this for vita this week. Next week maybe?

IzoGray said:

October 7th, 8:23 am

I was hoping this was the next Plus update. I love this game.

Will probably go for that difficult platinum.

IzoGray said:

October 7th, 8:23 am


Yes it will work. I rented the collection a while ago and played and beat both Ico and Shadow. When we got the digital Plus version of Ico last month, my save was still there.

DesertAss2in said:

October 7th, 8:24 am

SotC was and continues to be a great game, but the controls don’t hold up so well. I spend so much time struggling with the platforming until I rage quit and play something else. It really is a beautiful game and the idea behind it is wonderful, just expect it to play like an old game!

zingakun said:

October 7th, 8:24 am

It’s an old poll. Anyways, nothing for me this week.

Please, talk to the R* guys and ask them to put Red Dead Redemption Complete Edition on sale. This is a must for my PS3 before jumping into the new generation.

IzoGray said:

October 7th, 8:26 am

Shadow of the Colossus should be remade for Vita. It’s the perfect fit.

chatoalbert said:

October 7th, 8:31 am

hey, how about a Tony Hawk’s HD for Vita? Vita could use some skating awesomeness

Fruttyman said:

October 7th, 8:32 am

Nothing for me. Again.

jayrabbit said:

October 7th, 8:33 am

Survey is for the old one ^_^

Alma_viva said:

October 7th, 8:33 am

So, I see that some people have already asked this but they havent gotten any answer yet so… would the ps games work on my vita? I’m going on a long trip soon, so I would love to get them for my vita rather than for my ps3.


viceforce said:

October 7th, 8:33 am

RIQ(REALLY IMPORTANT QUESTION) For the plus team: Seeing as PS4 comes out next month, is there a chance that all of the plus games lets say from Far Cry 2 to say November’s PS+ update, will those games be labeled as “No Time Limit?”

dh4645 said:

October 7th, 8:34 am

@17 thank you for the confirmation!

Vyprstryke said:

October 7th, 8:34 am

nothing for me this week. still hoping for an amalur sale though! you’re making it awfully hard for me to spend money to get in on this spend money and get credit back deal…

Sectumsempraaa said:

October 7th, 8:35 am

Would love a deal on One Piece: Pirate Warriors (1 or 2) at some point.

Ryumoau said:

October 7th, 8:36 am

No interest in shadow of Collosus, but glad to see Transformers Fall of Cybertron on Sale. Wish the regular edition was alittle cheaper though.

dh4645 said:

October 7th, 8:36 am

@17 i havent played ICO yet off the HD collection (or the digital) thats why i didnt know.

War_Machida said:

October 7th, 8:36 am

Is this Shadow of the Colossus the HD version? :DD

carlpain said:

October 7th, 8:37 am

………….Spyro…maybe. I will like to see better discounts next week.

elpsydominator said:

October 7th, 8:41 am

and as always nothing for vita this week its amazing that we have to wait like 2 or 3 weeks to get something =/

Ryumoau said:

October 7th, 8:42 am

why do they keep posting the previous week’s poll? This is the second or third time. Do they even check the links before posting?

Harerazer said:

October 7th, 8:42 am

@ Isidrera
Yes, I was told by a Sony customer service rep that the PS4 WILL count towards the 2 console limit so you can have 1 PS3 and 1 PS4 or 2 of both. If you own 2 PS3’s like me, you had better decide which one to give up.

ioshi_US said:

October 7th, 8:43 am

no discount for vita again :(

carlpain said:

October 7th, 8:45 am

Vita is the last week of the month. At least that is the way they did it the last 2 months.

CraddaPoosta said:

October 7th, 8:48 am

Once again, I will wind up trading in the physical disc of a game I currently own, so I can purchase the digital version at a deep discount. I would much prefer all of my content to be digital, if possible, to preserve the laser on my PS3, and for reduced load times.

So, I will likely be purchasing Prototype again this week. Same thing happened when Mortal Kombat got a huge discount.

Not a bad past few weeks on PS+. My subscription just auto-renewed (forgot to turn that off), so I am stuck for at least three more months. Still holding out hope for a decent racing game and a solid JRPG.

stekimafijas said:

October 7th, 8:52 am

When I look at these discounts, I just KNOW the next few months especially with the PS4/Vita TV launch will be filled with free PS1 games for PSN+ subs.

Nice try Sony, burned me once already.

Dharos said:

October 7th, 8:54 am

Loved playing SotC and ICO when I finally got my hands on the collection, with this game on my HDD I might finally go for the Platinum.

FarmFreshEggBoy said:

October 7th, 8:54 am

I might actually give a crap about this, if it hadn’t been on sale a month ago.

If anyone has not played Shadow of the Colossus, all I can say is it may be the best video game I have ever played. The games I would consider that rivals this is Ocarina of Time and Mario 64. This game has incredible game play, but also evokes real emotion….something the other 2 could never do.

I got family guy for ps3 for $20 from amazon from some time ago, not the best but better than their first game.

Squiggle55 said:

October 7th, 9:01 am

I am excited about Shadow of the Colossus. That’s what I’ll vote for when the poll is fixed.

I would also love to be able to play Spyro and Crash on my Vita like the rest of the world. This is truly baffling and very frustrating. But I think I’m even more frustrated by Final Fantasy V. Why in the world is the only Final Fantasy that isn’t playable on the Vita the one we got from PS+. I know that one is up to SE but it was a really insulting thing for them to do.

T3DV0L70L1N4 said:

October 7th, 9:05 am

Here’s my IGC wishlist:

Assassin’s Creed 3 & Liberation
God of War (all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
Grand Theft Auto (all games in the series)
LA Noire
The Last of Us
Max Payne 3
Metal Gear Rising
Metal Gear Solid HD (PS3), digital version of MGS4
Red Dead Redemption
Red Faction Guerrilla
Saints Row IV
Stealth Inc
Uncharted 1 & 2
Velocity Ultra

Also, could you please add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store?

When are you guys going to start talking about the PS4 PSN UI features etc. etc.

Bbry17 said:

October 7th, 9:07 am

Super stoked for Shadow of the Colossus, Crash Bandicoot games and the Spyro games. It would be sick to have Vita support for Crash and Spyro.

samv33 said:

October 7th, 9:11 am

Glad to see some PS1 discounts, even if I think some of them aren’t Vita compatible (although remote play always works).

Also, please continue to release new PS1 titles. There are a ton of great titles still not available on the PSN store. I hope this is still in the plan somewhere, even though I know the focus is on current and future games\services.
