We’re putting the finishing touches on July’s PlayStation Plus lineup by welcoming Dokuro! The PS Vita exclusive that captured the hearts of many can be yours, free as part of your PS Plus membership. Also, PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PS Vita is on sale for its launch week!

 

With all the PS Vita love, our friends at Rockstar decided to balance things out by putting a huge discount on one of the most intense action games of 2012. PS Plus members can grab Max Payne 3 for $7.99, or the Ultimate Edition for just $11.99. Action game lovers who may have not been able to play it last year: do not miss this one.

 

The clock is ticking to grab the PS Plus preorder discount on PlayStation Store PLAY titles, like Ibb and Obb and DuckTales Remastered. You can only snag those discounts by preordering.

 

Read on for this week’s full PS Plus lineup, and we’ll see you next week for the reveal of August’s Instant Game Collection additions!

Dokuro (PS Vita)

Regular Price: $13.99, Free for PS Plus members

Dokuro
Dokuro is a stoic, little skeleton who is a mere peon in the Dark Lord’s army. One fateful day he witnesses his master returning with a helplessly abducted Princess he intends to force into marriage. At once smitten by her plight, Dokuro resolves to free her from the Dark Lord’s treacherous, monster-infested castle. Along the way, Dokuro must switch between his Skeleton and Hero forms to utilize his various skills and abilities. While the Skeleton form allows him to stalk about in the shadows and ensure her safe passage, the Hero form enables him to mount a gallant offensive against the armies of darkness!

Regular Price: $14.99; PS Plus Price: $11.99

The definitive PixelJunk Monsters experience! Tikiman the Forest Defender is in trouble.

But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

Wow two weeks in a row with no PS3 free games. I don't own a PS Vita so the freebies are useless to me this and last week. Unless they can play on the PSP, does anybody know if that is the case? When they say PSVita does that include downloading for PSP too? Because I never see PSP titles for free. Just wondering.

You can play the PSP titles that release for PS Vita on a PSP, yes. And we usually save the PS Vita / PSP instant game collection drops for the end of the month, while we do the PS3 titles at the beginning. You'll see PS3 titles coming next week and beyond. Thanks!

There have been a number of PSP games in recent months.  So many, in fact, PS Vita owners were complaining about the lack of PS Vita titles being released for PS+.  Currently available: Metal Slug XX and Gods Eater Burst are both PSP playable.

Yeah.  Was only mildly interested in the game until I saw that.  Might have to pick it up for 12 bucks.

 

Other than that, I'll probably give Dokuro a shot since it's free, but its one that has never really been on my radar.

Because I only read these updates and never looked at the actual download from the PS Store, I never knew that most of these were PSP compatible cause it always said Vita in these updates. So now I know (by going to the store and reading some responses) and am downloading Metal Slug! To bad Zero Escape is Vita only, it looks cool. Thanks everyone!

I don't know if you are or not, but you should be adding the free Vita/PSP games to your download list in case sometime in the future you do get a PS Vita.
