PS Plus: Sine Mora Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Specialist

Ever feel like you don’t have enough time? Well, that’s by design in Sine Mora, where classic shoot-em-up mechanics (or shmup, if you like saying funny words) are blended with a new twist: you’re racing against the clock. Instead of scoring points, you’ll hunt down enemies to gain precious seconds and hopefully avoid the Game Over screen. PlayStation Plus members get the PS Vita version of this title for free starting tomorrow.

It’s week 2 of our Sale of the Dead promotion, and that means you can save money on awesome titles like the recently released Puppeteer, the classic BioShock and the adorable Costume Quest. There’s a great variety of content available — check it all out below.

You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, October 29th.

PlayStation Plus Update 10-29-2013

Sine Mora
SINE MORA is a horizontal shoot’em up that provides a unique take on challenge, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with contemporary presentation, SINE MORA is a gorgeous shmup that offers a Story Mode that weaves an over-the-top tale and an Arcade Mode that provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre.

Get the EU PS+ and save yourself the agony of these crap games they’ve been feeding us U.S. people.

just this month i spent more then 80 bucks, by renewing my plus membership for a year and buying the last of us digital copy on psn, and didn’t get no 10 dollars…

My PS+ subscription expires next year and I’m glad, next time I’ll get the European version they make the us ps+ look like garbage.

tbx59 said:

October 28th, 9:53 pm

Love these sales. Just been finishing up the games from the summer sale, now have a bunch of new games to slog through. THe last one is awesome, btw. And 18 games to PS4

tbx59 said:

October 28th, 9:56 pm

last guy I mean

Xx_Crisco_xX said:

October 28th, 9:56 pm

And this is why I’ll cancel my plus after all these years, the sales are average at best (example this weeks sales horrible best game I AM ALIVE which should’ve already been on sale months ago), games aren’t even for the ps3 and it’s called playstation plus(granted I’ve got a vita and the games they have gave out lately aren’t worth the time to download) free games that you don’t get to keep when your account expires(so then there not free) And now the fact that when 4 comes out you have to pay to plan online. Time to invest in a XBOX where you can play your own music while you play games, way better servers and less cheaters!

BlueBl1zzard said:

October 28th, 10:16 pm

@thezenguy you don’t get the $10 from the promotion back until the first or second week of November.

@Xx_Crisco_xX you will be sorely missed :'(

Cyberdyne9 said:

October 28th, 10:37 pm

The 50 dollars promotion is still on? until when? (need some days to get my 50 dollars PSN card and renew my PSN Plus) The discounts are really good… but i really miss a CASTLEVANIA DRACULA X CHRONICLES (PSP) discount… seems very right in this halloween season

BlueBl1zzard said:

October 28th, 10:45 pm

@Cyberdyne9 supposedly the promotion ends tomorrow at 11:59pm PST.

BlueBl1zzard said:

October 28th, 10:48 pm

crap, I meant to say tomorrow as in Tuesday. It’s already Tuesday here in the east coast, so it’d be tonight for us lol.

Dammit! I just bought DmC! D=

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 28th, 11:34 pm

@Rezolution77: Cool story, bro.

@BlueBl1zzard: Exactly. You pay money ($50/yr, $18/3 months, etc.) upfront and see if the discounts on games you want don’t add up to a lot more than that. If they don’t, you shouldn’t stick with Plus. And you should really be checking up on these posts for weeks/months before subscribing so you’ll know what to expect beforehand. I see far too many people acting like they had no way of knowing what it would be like.

@CraddaPoosta: Companies can charge whatever they want for their products. Besides, if you own an iOS/Android phone and can get the same games so much cheaper, what’s the problem? Get them for your phone, or shell out the extra $7. You can obviously affford it if you can afford those phones. Stop comparing everything you see to everything else. It’s never going to be perfectly “fair.”

@Mando44646: I agree. Indies are great but they should be mixed in with full games from time to time. Though I’ll take whatever I get in the IGC since it’s all icing on the cake. Vita owners (especially those without a PS3) may actually have more of a point regarding indie/PSP games on the IGC vs. newer stuff, but again it’s all extra to me.

kmetek said:

October 28th, 11:49 pm

when new games available for good prices?

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 28th, 11:52 pm

@mdawk13: I agree with you: The IGC *has become* the central selling point of PS Plus, and if it were gone a lot of subscribers would follow it out the door. It *has become* the backbone of PS Plus to your average subscriber. I find that unfortunate. I don’t think they ought to get rid of the IGC, but there’s so much more to Plus than that. I’m talking about people changing their perspective and attitude regarding the IGC. People tend to forget there wasn’t an IGC in the beginning. People with long memories tend to see my point. Others see it but simply don’t agree. And that’s fine. But I will continue to make it. Either way, Plus is worth it only if it is a good value for you.

@DarkTimeLordX: There’s something in the IGC for everybody. You’re really that pissed because Vita owners got something this week and you didn’t? I don’t own a Vita, but let’s be fair to those who do.

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 28th, 11:55 pm

@hartbrek310: Fair enough. The glitch exists. I never said it didn’t. There’s no patch to fix it and there won’t be one. I never said otherwise. But if you truly are experiencing this glitch there are ways around it. Before you start a new game, install any available patches. If that’s what you did before, then DON’T install the patch and simply play offline till you get past the section with the French fry costume. In any case, be sure to complete the French fry section once you get to it before shutting the game off. Just to be on the safe side.

It’s a fun game. I never ran into this glitch; sorry others have had problems. But people shouldn’t be left with the impression the game can’t be beaten, because I and many others have done so. Good luck.

Why are there so many freaking ps vita free games
Start putting more ps3 games!!!

carlpain said:

October 29th, 12:52 am

I’ll just say that I got Plus because of the discounts. I got 15 months (3 for free) + a voucher for 10 bucks. The total was $39,99. I bought like 10 games thanks to the discounts, so even when I saved, let’s say, 5 buck per game, that was something good for me. 5 × 10= 50. I already got my money back…and it is only month 3 of my 15. Soooo, yeah, some people only get Plus for the discounts.

carlpain said:

October 29th, 12:55 am

My big problem with Plus is that I can buy games that I already “own.” I missed AE two weeks ago and now I’m going to miss Bioshock 2. Even when I got it for 360 like 3 years ago, I wanted to get it for PS3, too.

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 29th, 1:11 am

@carlpain: I’ll agree it is lame that you can’t take advantage of sales open to everyone else if you’ve previously downloaded a game for free. They should fix that. It’s been that way for years and they’ve had ample time to come up with a fix.

@hartbrek310: Before you go and start your game over, make sure you’re using the costume correctly. It’s a very confusing section, and IIRC I did have some problems with it. Look into it further online. But if you’re sure you’ve hit the glitch, at least it’s not a very long game. Cheers.

TJF588 said:

October 29th, 1:13 am

Heard good of Sine Mora, and wasn’t it here that the Vita version was stated as the best by the devs? However, no Vita for me (yet?), and no Vita TV (very want), so the lack of cross-buy means no subscription freebie for me this week. Still so much to go through…

And, hey, Siren: Blood Curse’s first discount in ever. I know that the PS4’s just around the corner, but how about we bring this and other first-party Sony titles (Folklore, Heavenly Sword, Let’s Golf…) up to speed with a little “bling!” (you know, the sound trophies make when they pop). Or really anything on this list — — particularly if there are already achievements set up on the X360 (still don’t get why Assassin’s Creed wasn’t spiffed when bundled with Revelations). C’mon, draw in the hunters, and give folks a reason to revisit!

SocialClimber_85 said:

Weak releases. Thanks so much for those $9 games.. So lame.
Aren’t the PSVita games supposed to rotate too? Gravity Rush and Uncharted have been there forever.

shibbydibbybibby said:

just for clarity… the buy $50 get $10 promotion ends at end of day 10/29 pst.?

TimeSkipLuffyUS said:

October 29th, 7:01 am

the people who bought DMC hopefully are not getting angry when it will be free in the next months ^^
It seems not unlikely considering EU got it. Might only come later in the line for NA.

SpooNManX said:

October 29th, 7:04 am

Ok serious question for you guys who are in the know…
Does the $7.99 Doom 3 BFG Edition digital version come with the classic Doom games? If so, are they any different than the $15 Doom classic that’s on PSN?

I need to spend $7 to hit $50 for the month and have been wanting to play the classic Doom games with the option of playing them online.


WanyaRolf said:

October 29th, 7:08 am

DMC, Okami and Remember Me were on the european IGC, and offered with huge discount some days ago. When asked about, Morgan said that they’re avoiding adding to IGC games that we’re on sale. Althought he didn’t said it wouldn’t. For me, it’s a huge difference between ‘it won’t be’ and ‘i’m avoiding it to be’.
And after being fooled by sony sometimes, I’m taking my chances.

fRaNcZ_ said:

October 29th, 7:25 am


as per the description page in PSN:

“DOOM 3 BFG Edition is the ultimate collection of groundbreaking games that defined the first person shooter. It includes DOOM, DOOM II, DOOM 3, and DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil, as well as the ‘Lost Mission’. All DOOM 3 content has been re-mastered in stunning 3D for an even more terrifying FPS experience.”

MarcusGearsofWar said:

October 29th, 7:37 am

The free game is really lame but the sale on DMC for $14 is good, Are you Crazy?

Sine Mora is a beautiful graphic game and extrely dificult game I cant get the 100% but I try is a nice game

thanks for the dead sale is awesome and I will buy Castelvania this week

AkimboMyGh3rkin said:

October 29th, 7:39 am

It’s the 29th now, how come the new round of discount hasn’t taken place yet? I would like to buy Fatal Frame I and II asap :(

ccrogers15 said:

October 29th, 7:41 am

No thanks. How about something less… garbage?

Why do the euros get the good games? And how come they also get to know their november games early? I feel like us in the USA are the minority here…

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 29th, 7:53 am

@hartbrek310: My initial reaction to your comment was due to your assertion that the game could not be completed. That is simply not true. But it gets complicated after that.

I did do some research before making my initial comments, but my own curiosity has led me to further research. Compounding the issue is the fact that the quest at issue can be easily fouled up even if the game itself is working properly. One girl went at least a week thinking she had encountered a glitch before being told she was tapping the button rather than holding it down as required.

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 29th, 7:55 am

Regardless, customer service from Double Fine and THQ has been shoddy at best. There will never be a patch to fix the glitch they created with their previous patch.

And so, I was wrong. The buyer should be aware of this and realize the possibility of having to start the game over before purchase. Which is all you were trying to do. Stacking contains a similar glitch which does not prevent completing the game, but which does prevent the completion of some challenges (and associated trophies) without starting over.

I still enjoyed both games despite having encountered the Stacking glitch myself, but I can understand why some people wouldn’t want to bother despite both games being very short.[/this]

SpooNManX said:

October 29th, 8:04 am

Thanks, but what I really want to know is if Doom 3 BFG’ s ($7.99) Doom and Doom II are different than if you bought the Classic Doom pack ($15).

The description for the classic Doom:

Dust off your BFG and ready yourself for the definitive battle against the forces of Hell. DOOM Classic Complete includes the seminal shooters that laid the ground work for the entire first-person shooter genre: DOOM (with the additional episode ‘Thy Flesh Consumed’), DOOM II (including the additional episodes ‘No Rest for the Living’ and ‘The Master Levels’) and Final DOOM.

Do both versions support online multiplayer?

KaneTheGoth said:

October 29th, 8:37 am

The Classic Doom pack has Final Doom, the Doom 3 pack doesn’t have it. As far as I know the multiplayer is the same.

@ 101 CraddaPoosta – Typical comment of an ignorant….indie games are what we need on the IGC….if you want disc-based games then go buy on the stores in disc.Sony shouldn’t have started to give away disc-based games….now we got the blog posts full of stupid complaints from ignorants.

viceforce said:

October 29th, 11:58 am

No downloading Sine Mora

CraddaPoosta said:

October 29th, 12:18 pm

@Welmosca, little boy, I will say whatever I please on this blog, as long as I am not directly attacking other people, as you are me.

Indie games are NOT what we need on the IGC. No one is going to feel as if they NEED a subscription to PS+, or that any console offered by Sony is only complete with a PS+ subscription, if all you get are $3 Android games “for free”. There is no value there to a new consumer.

Indie titles are their own genre, not the leading genre in the gaming scene. Trying to force a scene is the surest way to torpedo it; buyers will resist when things are shoved in their faces and told how swell they are.

I don’t care what you like. I didn’t ASK you what you liked, nor did I insult your opinion. You will show me the same courtesy, child.

Get off this blog and do something more productive with your life of affluence and success, kiddo. Run along, now.

IsSine Mora is i pretty good game, one that i would like to have for when i don’t have much time or don’t feel like getting into an adventure game. is it free for ps3 also, or just the vita?

WHY does EU get their line up for plus 1-2 weeks earlier and the US so much later? last year it used to be 3-4 days before the month started but now… you guys don’t give a shoe do you?

I_Like_Tomatoes said:

October 29th, 6:06 pm

AND the worst part is that the next line up for November for the US is going to suck just like last month, FREAKING POKER!!!!

PSN EU is giving away Metal Gear Revengence for free in November???? This make me want to switch my account regions and if not kill my PSN sub. Its not even fair that they get such good games and we in the US get throw away titles (comparatively speaking of course). I was super excited when I read the article about the November freebies….I even convinced a friend to sign up! Then I had to break the bad news to him that I was reading the Euro blog :(
