PlayStation Plus: December Preview

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.

The digital content for the PS4 is a HUGE letdown. The 2 whole games on PS Plus aren’t very interesting at all. Really disappointed that I spent $400 and PS doesn’t have anything good on the PS Plus now that it’s mandatory. Perhaps Xbox one was the way to go after all since their online content rolls to the next system.

Pick up your game Playstation, I’ve been a loyal owner since PS1 but screwing your customer base over expensive headsets and nothing nice to download has been a very bad experience.

It’s December 15… I don’t see Sonic Transformed…Is it really coming, or did SEGA and Sony change their minds and take it from the list of free games?

The games for ps3 are awesome, but why am i even paying if ps4 gamers don’t get anything in december? I don’t have a ps3 anymore or a vita and I was hoping for at least flower or fl0w or something even though they’re so old. I don’t think the distribution is even at all, it’s not like I’m going to buy another ps3 anytime soon. It would be nice to at least get a reply as to why ps4 is getting shafted this month, we should at least get a refund for plus this month. We’re already missing drive club, watch dogs and other games we were supposed to at least be able to purchase at launch. The ps4 lineup of games is sorely lacking and I know I’m not alone in this thought. If we don’t have the option to buy more games, at least give us some old goodies for plus. thanks.

When are we going to see Sonic All-Star Racing and Urban Trial Freestyle on PSVita? It’s already the middle of December. I guess I’ll download Grid 2 and WipeOut 2048 on my PSVita & PS3 now. Already have Hotline Miami.

that vita plus is horrible. i have sonic transform on my PC (superior version) and i tried the demo of the vita version and it just felt slow and sluggish and the frame rate is pretty lackluster. i don’t care much for trials. december isnt a good month for vita personally.

No PS4 content? I don’t own a Vita and my PS3 took a s#!* on itself. Do I have to wait until January?

Ummm, it’s December 20th. Where is Sonic Racing Transformed and Urban Trial Freeracing for Vita? These were announced for some time ago for December. Just bought a new vita and plus last month. New to all this. Just curious.
