Heads up, PlayStation Plus members. It’s time for some serious shenanigans – Payday 2 is coming to the Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Team up with your friends to pull off a variety of heists, like robbing a convenience store or taking down a major bank vault. Completing these virtual crimes will net you both experience points to build out your character’s skill tree and cash to purchase new weapons and other goodies. For PS Vita owners, our final PS Vita PLAY title, TxK, will be available tomorrow at a discounted rate.

You can download Payday 2 after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

PlayStation Plus: Instant Game Collection

Payday 2 (PS3)

Free for PS Plus members

Payday 2
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree. The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to major league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in D.C., why not participate in the local community and run a few political errands?

Will this Payday be more different than the original Payday? I recall having the level up system and unlocking rewards in the original. How will this new one be different? I also hope it will be a bit easier too, not that hard is bad.

@42 if you think making a wishlist is going to get sony’s attention for games for the IGC


you see theres was this one guy that posted his wishlist every single week and nobody gave a damn about his list. It isn’t up to you it’s up to the developers to decide which games get put up on the IGC

Thank You Very Much!!

Another shooter?

How about some more genre diversity please.

Didn’t like Payday when plus gave it to me so I won’t bother DLing this one.

Metro has been better than I expected, so thank you for that game.

I can’t really understand why someone would make a wishlist for PS Plus, it makes it sound like you just want to be cheap and don’t care to support games, in this case localizations, where your buy is most important. If you want those games on PS+ that bad, chances are you’ll like em, Go buy Hatsune, Persona etc.

Only thing I ask is to give Vita games on weeks other then the last 2, it’s so dumb and insulting. Europe gets all the titles same time, it’s fine they don’t do that in NA, but it’s not even evened out. It’s just, Vita will go last.
I’ve been unlucky enough to own every Vita game since September and hated January’s so I finally get 2 games I don’t have and will enjoy (Though I had em both previously). But I gotta wait till the end of the month -.-‘

Thanks Sony! Already own it, but love it anyway!

@51 Just about everything for Payday 2 was drastically improved from the original. The level up system is much better and the skill trees are pretty sweet. All of the unlockables (guns, masks, etc) don’t seem to effect gameplay that much, but at least they are like skins for your player. If you even remotely enjoyed the first one, definitely give the second a go.

Pay Day 2 <3

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not seeing the big deal of getting vita games “last”. Reagrdless of which console you get your ICG games for, it’s roughly the same amount of wait time. Check it out:

Month 1 Week 1: PS4 game
Month 2 week 1: PS4 game
(wait time 4-5 weeks)

Month 1 weeks 2-3: PS3 games
Month 2weeks 2-3: PS3 games
(wait time 4-5 weeks)

Month 1 week(s) 4-5: Vita game(s)
Month 2 week(s) 4-5: Vita game(s)
(wait time 4-5 weeks)

So if this is the IGC schedule for two consecutive months, then like I said it’s more or less the same time between games regardless of console. If anything, it only ‘feels’ longer for vita games because we know what we’re getting way ahead of time, whereas we get the PS4 game only a week after we learn what it is.

can someone please answer my question; I will be getting my PS3 this week and i know that DMC and Bioshock were part of last month offerings, will i still be able to get them for free or i am out of luck and just be able to get this month’s games? Thank you

InfinitiProject said:

February 10th, 11:48 am

Wait… do some people not know about the Share section here on the blog? Posting your wishlist or “suggestions” won’t do much here.

InfinitiProject said:

February 10th, 11:59 am

@62 DMC left the collection last week. You’re good for this week on Bioshock Infinite.

BlueBl1zzard said:

February 10th, 12:02 pm

The games shown in the picture at the top of this post are the ones still available for free, so yes Bioshock, no DMC. I would recommend using the PS web store to get your free games and add them to your download list (even if it’s for a console you don’t own but may get in the future).

By the looks of things it seems the PS Blog.Share section has not been updated in quite some time, so it probably won’t do much good there either.

Emerald-Weapon1 said:

February 10th, 12:13 pm

Thank you guys for the replies, I cancel my subscription awhile back so i do not have the ps+ anymore; i will be getting it back later this week along with another PS3 i just wanted to make sure i can still get some of these games on time. It is a shame about DMC tho, i wanted to finish the game.

Lame sales this week… Payday 2 looks pretty cool though.

When does the Persona sale end?

GForce_Wolf said:

February 10th, 12:32 pm

hey there, any chance we get a good discount on FFVII FFVIII Chrono Cross and Locoroco 1 and 2

Also will Metal gear hd collection be included in the IGC for the vita since it was on europe’s.

JohnKarnes said:

February 10th, 12:46 pm

Payday 2 for sure I will also take a gook look at the weekly discounts I don’t know anything about them.

THEFIXER09 said:

February 10th, 1:15 pm

PlayStation Plus is not even worth it. They could at least throw in a music unlimited subscription while my play station + is valid.

Teflon02 said:

February 10th, 1:15 pm

youu missed why the complaints are done. For Vita owners they gotta wait almost a month for wht they know they’re getting while PS3 owners pretty much get all immediately. But even that isn’t the issue. I could Easily be done more sensibly.
Week 1
PS3 (if no w5 then on w4)
Current way is insulting to Vita owners. You just don’t see it.

For those of you with a PS4 and haven’t played it yet, download Outlast. For what it is, it is a great little game. Even on normal difficulty, there are parts that are hard but not so hard that you give up playing all together. Also, for it to be free on PSN it’s longer than some of the other indie games you get for free. It was really a treat to see a good horror game for once, since there hasn’t been too many recently. A constant thrill ride filled with moments that will make you piddle your undies. Two thumbs up from me and a must try.

BlueBl1zzard said:

February 10th, 1:51 pm

@Teflon02 you must be right, cause I still don’t see it. I’m especially not seeing how having to wait for something makes it “insulting”.

Other than rearranging the IGC schedule, the only other possible solution I could see is for them NOT to tell us what we are getting in advance. But we all remember those days…..

Everytime my ps3’s break or force me to reformat my hd I have to redownload all my games and dlc. I have bought over 100 games and a ton of dlc and I hate searching through a download list of over 1300 things. There really should be a filter and 60 minute trials shouldn’t be in the ps3 filter if you make one. I figured I would mention that because it probably wouldn’t be done if you made a filter lol. It is truly pathetic, the only thing that would make me consider a ps4 is next gen gta and metal gear. I am over buying products that break.
Make filters for searching throught the dl list on the ps3 goons.

Lol @ 13 Viceforce that’s 1 of the main reasons i never played the 1st 1 after i downloaded that **** the update was basically a full game i just deleted it smh

Never played a Payday game before. Thought it would be like a GTA clone due to it’s nature. But it turns out it’s an FPS and I will give it a try. If I like it, I might purchase the 1st one when it’s on sale.

It’s too bad the PS3/360 version of PAYDAY 2 is terrible. Whatever, it’ll be nice to play if I have friends over and they can’t play on PC with me.

dkarlowicz10 said:

Thank you for the great sales recently. Any chance of PSP or PS1 sales in the near future? I was hoping on picking up a couple for the Vita.

@ BattleSkard If you download avatars from the ps store on your ps3 they will appear as your avatar on ps4.

bashbro654 said:

February 10th, 5:52 pm

I think it’s pretty messed up that PlayStation 4 only gets one game a month. I understand that the graphics are better on the ps4 and some games are notready to be played on piano PlayStation 4 but they should come out would at least 2 games a month for us for free but hey it is what it is

juliorockrules said:

February 10th, 6:13 pm

well i am a veteran gamer and is very nice the PS+., because i download metro last light, uncharted 3, Bioshock infinite, Devil may cry, and go to take pay day 2 and Remember me, so i´m glad to take this and future games… and i trying to have all the thropies and beat all the records….. yeeeaahh i still have the rock´rooll …..XD..

TanakaFutaba said:

Are these for US PS+ members only? How about Southeast Asia region?

strykerjr said:

February 10th, 7:22 pm

Counting down the days, I loved PayDay 1, but I had to by the PC one due to it having more avalible content.
I hope this games better than the original. Crossing my for a good year of plus content. I just hope I can get ModNation free for plus. eh, I can dream can I?

srianne said:

February 10th, 7:23 pm

KZ: mercenary discount please… I wasn’t able to purchase it on a discounted price because I have to send my Vita on service center…

purse317 said:

February 10th, 8:24 pm

First PayDay 2 is ok but not on my wan tto play list so nothing for me this week. Second the sales the plus sales to be specific we’ve seen in the last few weeks have been lackluster at best.

Third some suggestions

Rayman Legends
Persona 4 Arena
Persona 4 Golden
MGS HD Collection
Ratchet and Clank Crack in Time
Castle Crashers
Any ps3 Worms title
Anything LEGO related
More ps3 rpgs we asked for them years ago we’re still waiting

DJPlace said:

February 10th, 9:45 pm

@50 i so agree with you. i also did not like the new if you die too many times you lose thing… even if your playing by yourself… game was fun for about a week… but then i moved on… IMO borderland games are better then payday games. that is all.

JehovahsWitless said:

While I’m personally not excited for Payday 2, it’s nice to see another prominent title being added to PS+ while it’s still somewhat relevant. The discounts aren’t exactly anything to get pumped up for, but I’m not complaining, as I still feel like I get better value for PS+ than I would for any other $10/month expenditure. :)

KIMO_Enterprise said:

If you had a ps plus account a few months back & you purchased star wars zen pinball for free on the PS vita, than you can get it for free on PS4. i just found that out. download zen pinball on your ps4 for free, then press on the import tables option.

Always buy all free ps plus games even if you don’t have the system or don’t like the game.


As for Payday 2, how many people did not buy that game already? there was such a hype around it, i’m pretty sure that most users already got this game.


@61, @72 and @75

it’s not insulting to wait for the ps vita games. It’s just stupid. I have ps3, ps4 and ps vita, and at the current schedule, they always give ps4 and ps3 the first week, ps3 the second week, and ps vita last. Since november 15, I haven’t used my ps3 and don’t plan on using it until south park is released. They should mix it up a bit, and spread the ps vita games and ps3 games throughout the whole month. It’s not about everyone waiting the same time- people should wait less for a new vita or ps3 game. instead of waiting for a whole month to get 2 free ps vita games, one should wait 2 weeks for 1 new game.

Why can’t i find Payday 2 in the PS Store With the other free games we get With Playstation plus? i updated and it’s still not there …

Krispekilla said:

February 11th, 8:07 am

Am I missing something? How do I get the store to “update”? 11 AM here and still no Payday 2. :(

it normally takes until the afternoon to update the ps + igc

saab01 said:

February 11th, 8:55 am

Was hoping for Remember me today instead I guess I will have to wait another week. The first pay day was fun but I don’t think I really got my moneys worth gameplay wise. I played it for awhile after buying it on sale. But never really played too many hours into that game.

Hopefully the improvements in Payday 2 will keep me busy for the next week.

BatMan_Berserker said:

Payday is still not on the PS Store for me :( any ideas when the store is suppose to update

SpecialSause said:

PayDay 2 is on the PS Plus section of the store but it says “Add To Cart $39.99”. Any ideas?
