PlayStation Plus: December Preview

Kristine Steimer's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Specialist

GRID 2 launched to critical acclaim earlier this year for its successful mixing of arcade and simulator styles. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, on the other hand, is more of a kart racer, complete with power ups but the ever-shifting tracks means your badass kart can also transform into a plane or boat.

You can hop into Borderlands 2 for free later this month on PS3, and this game absolutely shines with co-op, so be sure to bring some buddies along with you while you blast away all the skags on Pandora. You can build out your vault hunter how you like – focus on damage or get some support skills to aid yourself & your friends.

Finally, Vita owners can scrape their knees up a bit with Urban Trial Freestyle. Successfully complete the tricks, customize your bike and then challenge your friends with the asynchronous Ghost mode.

PS Plus: December 2013

These games will hit the Instant Game Collection at various times throughout the month, so check back with us every Monday morning to see all the benefits of your membership.

There will also be a special Black Friday deal for PlayStation Plus at select retailers nationwide. Pick up 1 year of PS Plus for only $29.99* — that’s 40% off the regular price of $49.99. With PS Plus, you’ll get new games every month with Instant Game Collection. You’ll also get access to online multiplayer on the PS4 system. Best of all, one membership will cover you across your PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, for just $29.99*.

*A one-year PlayStation Plus membership will be $29.99 on Black Friday only

I see ppl have already said something about NO PS4 games next month that’s bad for over a million people that went out and supported Sony Thanks for looking out for the people the digging you out of that hole SONY!!!!!! On the upside I just bought the PS VITA bundle off Cant wait to get my hands on it.

Games are changed in the Instant Game Collection on Tuesdays when the store updates, so you’ll be able to add everything there the day before. Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen is leaving next, you don’t have to worry about any of the others leaving yet.

PS4 has only been out two weeks, so I don’t think they need to change or add any PS4 games yet. Come January we’ll see. The PS4 library is small, and we got two PS4 games at launch, so I’m happy.

November 29th, 1:42 am

@Ecks So only Dragon Dogma is leaving next? That’s OK. I am interested in the PSVita games.As far as I observed on wikipedia,every PSVita game entered in the mid of the month.I just hope Oddworld and Soul Sacrifice don’t leave soo,and the others,cause some were added in November.The blog states when some games will exit the IGC? How can I find it out.Thanks :D

Knack would be appreciated for PS4 IGC


November 29th, 2:05 am

Hooray! BL2 and Dyad – going into IGC; thx PS+. Grid 2 is good addition , because we never got any racing so far if I’m not mistaken. So yeah nice PS+ month. Hopefully we’ll see a lot of discounts , Black Friday , Holiday and many more !

SSj4_Ryuk said:

November 29th, 2:29 am

Mother of God, FOUR racing games? Are you kidding me? Both Vita games are RACING?! I literally just bought a year of PS+ and am instantly regretting it…at least I got it 40% off…

November was great, but this…this…ugh. At least make it up with great discounts, this is a disaster…

SILVER55855 said:

November 29th, 2:53 am

Dude seriously guys where is the PS4 stuff._. Also what about the game crashe..s when are those going to be fixed? You have sadly disappointed me with the ps4 line up.

PrimeroIncognito said:

November 29th, 4:26 am

@ SSj4_Ryuk

There are only 2 racing games, not 4. And both of the racing games – GRID 2 & Sonic – are top-notch fun games. High-quality stuff worthy of long-term spots in the IGC.

Urban Trial Freestyle is not a racing game. It’s more of an obstacle course/technical challenge type of thing, and Dyad is… just… Dyad. It’s hard to explain, actually. You have to play it to understand, and while there are some racing aspects to it, it’s definitely not a traditional racer. For instance, if you jump out of GRID 2 and straight into Dyad, you won’t feel like you’re playing the same game at all.

They’re all good games, believe me. I have all 4 of them and I don’t regret buying a single one.

I was waiting the Borderlands 2 and GRID 2 for ages!
And now my VITA has great games too! HOHO!

Wrenchin69 said:

November 29th, 4:43 am

you guys really need to give the ppl who bought all the new games for ps3 a better selection rather than just a couple games that we can upgrade the game on the ps4 platform. I would pay 10.00 per game for at least 30 of my games to have them playable on the ps4.. one thing I wont be doing is going to buy them all again.

sbaradan06 said:

when will we see Black Friday deals on PSN today?

pablogers2 said:

November 29th, 5:59 am

Sorry guys but i bought ps plus for the ps4 goods, and there is NOTHING for ps4.
I’m very dissapointed.

November 29th, 6:04 am

Awesome couple of months for vita, glad the US PS plus is back on track =)

dbldwn3185 said:

November 29th, 6:07 am

Where are the Black Friday deals??!!!

J_Roel said:

November 29th, 6:56 am

Why is it that the PS Plus membership deal is only available in the US? It’s digital, it seems like it should be pretty easy to make it available in Canada (and the rest of the world) as well… Not happy about that.

rockphantomMG said:

November 29th, 8:04 am

Drats! On Wednesday, I purchased Borderlands 2 at Sams Club for $6.71. Oh well, still a great price for a disc based game. Please make Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed available for PS3!

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

Not sure what all the PS4 fuss is about. New consoles generally have weak launch lineups. This one’s no different. I do prefer to see the suggestions coming in about which games you think they should give away rather than pointless venting. Frankly, there’s not much to give away. And there’s a lesson here: Let somebody else endure all the launch hassles. Buy new consoles quite a bit after launch. Lots more games, bugs fixed, etc.

Happy for all those enjoying their new system, though. :)

Got an e-mail today stating that the $30 Plus deal was available at GameStop, Amazon, Walmart, and a few others. I deleted the e-mail already but maybe someone else can post the full list here.

Already bought 2 years worth for $60 at GameStop. Also bought Uncharted 3 GOTY for $15, GOW Saga (all 5 games) for $15, and Dishonored for $10 at Walmart. Yeah I could just DL U3 since it’s on the IGC, but I wanted a physical copy and didn’t want to DL 40GB.

People have been begging for Far Cry 3 to join the IGC for months. Saw it at Walmart and Best Buy (probably others) for $15. Time to bust open the ol’ piggy bank, people.


November 29th, 8:29 am

when are they gone give some could deals on some good games plus they need to to add dragonball tenkaichi to ps store and add online

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

November 29th, 8:36 am

On the other hand, I found it a bit silly that both the PS3 store and the web store were down for maintenance this morning. Lol.

Probably still prepping for the big PSN sale, but still. It’s Black Friday! You’re supposed to have it together right away, not hours later! Just sayin’.

Welmosca said:

November 29th, 8:41 am

People are really ignorant to be asking for a free game for PS4….you got 2 god damn games on the launch and you’re still asking for more?…ha what game do you expect them to give at this time?….if you want games so bad go outside and buy it.Complainers just wont stop….they’ll always find something new to complain about…Lame.

DJPlace said:

November 29th, 8:55 am

3 racing games… wow… just wow… a item type racer a car racer and a dirt bike racer… way to go… also Borderlands 2 made up for it. but sadly i own it all ready… along with that sonic game. i like the sonic game better on vita then ps3. at least you can drive with X button then the R2 button smart move there.

Rezolution77 said:

November 29th, 9:21 am

Almost bought Boderlands 2, and was a little upset I missed it.

A little glad I did, but at the same time upset, if it was a game worth keeping.

Can’t actually say I am thrilled with the lineup (December and all), but definately not upset either.

I already own Urban Trial, due to the sale, and think it is definately worth the IGC, as it kept me amused for not very long.(more like a mobile application)

Either way with Rymdkapsul, Abes Boxx, and the PSP Ys collection, I am literally a happy camper.

RXL209 said:

November 29th, 9:23 am

Check back tomorrow on the PS Blog, there might be some news you’ll want to check out

umm…….i dont see any sales

Rezolution77 said:

November 29th, 9:24 am

And something realy needs to be done to allow games in the IGC to be purchased.

Rezolution77 said:

November 29th, 9:27 am

And thumbs up Steel, appreciate the heads up on the sales.

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

November 29th, 9:30 am

Agreed (2nd post/IGC purchases) and you’re welcome. :)

PS Plus Made me fall in love with borderlands, and now they’re giving me the second, super best month

Teh_AKOD said:

November 29th, 12:00 pm

I actually wanted a racing game. Now I got two, thanks a lot :D

copyofcopy said:

November 29th, 12:58 pm

…where’s the Playstation 4 game? if the PS4 isn’t going to be a regular part of the instant game collection, you guys should have been a lot more clear about that.

copyofcopy said:

November 29th, 1:03 pm

also, i’m not sure why you’re undermining the port of borderlands 2 that the vita is getting. why would you expect anyone to buy that version when it’s being given away here, for free? i had been planning on buying it for vita, but now i’ll just play it on ps3 and save the cash.

goldenknight01 said:

November 29th, 1:06 pm

I just got myself a year of PS Plus. I will enjoy theses games. Thank you guys

johnsce said:

November 29th, 1:11 pm

Any games for PS4?

boss_ruzy said:

November 29th, 1:43 pm

Not much genre variety for Vita this month, and only one game on sale for Vita for black friday? Seems Sony wants more people to buy Vitas but isn’t doing much to add incentive to it.

BlueMarvel100 said:

November 29th, 3:32 pm

What are the PS+ for PS4 OWNERS?!

vladiator011 said:

hethunder said:

November 29th, 3:56 pm

Will Borderlands 2 download be playable with the saved game from playing on disc? and with the dlc already purchased and downloaded? Cuz i’d trade in my disc version to have the download one.

Wish I could trade Grid2 for Ni No Kuni :( , apart from that I’m happy for getting Borderlands 2

Dothius said:

November 29th, 6:40 pm

Plus member since March and this is the first time the IGC offers a game I already own (Borderlands 2). Pretty good track record for my experience. :)

Dan_dannunzio said:

November 29th, 6:48 pm

lol, its funny hearing people complain about ps4 games not being on here, what did you expect? for them to just get developers who just released games for a console that’s not even a month old yet to agree on having there games for free to most of the ps4 community? its going to be a little while before we see multiple games for the ps4 every month on ps+ or did you guys think you would just buy a ps4 and have every launch title for free lmao!!

saab01 said:

November 29th, 7:03 pm

A great time to be a plus Member. I got Dyad when it first came out when it was on sale it was a great game and very fun and I loved those colors. ;)

Borderlands 2 and Grid 2 look like nice games its nice to see a racer finally join the IGC yeah I know LBPK is considered a racer but not with real cars. Overall I like this month and I bought 2 more years with that 30 dollar sale on the plus cards. So now I am a member untill 2018 I hope the rest of the years will just get better and better. And I love how the Plus prpgram just embarases xbox live gold. The games with gold has been so terrible most of us 360 owners might even stop paying for gold once our subscription ends. At least I am thinking to stop subscribing due to the lack of deals and useful to the Live subscription.

wistomadero said:

November 29th, 7:16 pm

Just bought the PS+ subscription due to the Black Friday discount through Amazon. They send me the code, but it does not work. The PlayStation store says “an error has occurred”. Who can a talk to, to correct this? Is it through Amazon or through Sony??
Please help.

chowdude0183 said:

November 29th, 7:33 pm

emelki1968 said:

November 29th, 8:33 pm

Hi.I am a little lost about the psvita games available through the PS4 with a PSPlus subscription .I remember with my PS3 have access to a lot of games. Now the only one that I see and only because it is a cross buy is FLOWER.Why we don’t have the same access than PS3 owners?

meFreeman said:

November 29th, 9:01 pm

I bet Morgan have his fingers on this preview! Anyway, I alread have borderlands 2, grid 2 for free? sure, dont want to buy a racing simulator whitout a cockpit viewn.

Gamerzlimited said:

November 29th, 9:28 pm

Awesome month! Not only we’re getting 2 of the games EU is getting, but we’re still getting 1 more title than them and Borderlands 2! Now I can finally get back into that game again after failing to get on Black Friday of last year. I’ll still buy the Game of the Year Edition later on so I can get access to the DLC.

@SSj4_Ryuk Do you know what is a disaster? Your face. I hope you get that changed with plastic surgery. People want at least a month of racing games and idiots like you are the reason why companies will never make you happy. Piss off.

EJ25VF34GD7 said:

November 29th, 10:40 pm

Wow, I’m loving PS+

I always wanted to play Grid 2 but never got around to it. I don’t care what anyone says, PS+ for just the free games alone is awesome. I got myself 2 years worth at the black Friday sale too so I’m all set until 2016 baby.

AizawaYuuichi said:

November 29th, 11:46 pm

@ people complaining about no new PS4 PS+ games:
Ya know, if you think about it, we were supposed to get DriveClub PS+ Edition and Resogun at launch. When DC was delayed, they gave us Contrast in its place. There’s a pretty good chance that Contrast was supposed to replace Resogun in December for PS+, but since we got them both at launch, we have to wait another month to get another free game. Makes perfect sense to me. And to all the people asking for Knack in the IGC? Go buy it. Seriously. If it sucks so bad that you didn’t buy it because all the reviews were negative, why do you even want it? It’s a retail launch title. Just… go buy it. Stop complaining. DC wasn’t even going to be the full retail version. Don’t expect to get ANY full retail games in the PS4 IGC until the second half of next year, at the earliest. If they come sooner than that, then we should consider ourselves lucky.
