I like this update - thanks Morgan. I have been wanting to try Demon's Souls. 

 

Plus I have always liked the way Rainbow Moon looks and it will be at real nice price.

Well I have Demon's Souls, the biggest title of the month Smiley Indifferent.  But all the other stuff will be new to me and I am at least a little interested in it, so overall not bad.  I've heard great things about Malicious in particular.

Awesome month for PS3 owners.

Horrible month for Vita owners.

PS3:
-Demon Souls: though most people probably already own this, still a great addition. I doubt anyone can complain about this.
-Labyrinth Legends: so wish this was on the Vita! Looks so much fun.
-Malicious: never heard of it, but looks like the right type of PSN title for PS+...something most people probably wouldn't buy otherwise, but may like once they try it.
-Zombie Tycoon 2: played the demo at GDC, but didn't quite understand what to do, so can't really say how it'll be.

Vita:
-Zombie Tycoon 2: Cross-Buy/Play titles should NOT count as the big Vita IGC for the month. Very disappointing. Wish we got MGS HD like EU or even Zero Escape. Something Vita-only, not what PS3 gets.
-Soul Calibur Broken Destiny: While Soul Calibur is my favorite fighter franchise, who actually thought it'd be a good idea to give a PSP fighter two months in a row?? (we just got Tekken 6 last month). Yeah, I'll probably delete Tekken 6 and just play this instead, but still, pretty stupid addition.

ModNation Racers Road Trip, Resistance Burning Skies, Rayman Origins, Lumines, When Vikings Attack, Dokuro,  Unit 13, Oddworld Stranger's Wrath HD, Asphalt: Injection, Silent Hill are far better offerings than Zombie Tycoon 2 (the only psvita game) 

 

I hope Motorstorm Apocalypse, Resistance 3, Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time come to the ps3 ps plus.

I bought Demon's Souls the first day it was added to the ps store. No Regrets! GREAT addition to plus. Malicious looks sick! God of War meets Kingdom Hearts meets Megaman. Very cool. Zombie Tycoon 2 looks awesome. Is that free the day it's released?  Amazing update! Thanks bunches and please boot ZenTripleFour from the blog. His absurd multiposting helps nothing. Smiley Very Happy

Looks like a terrible update for me. The only thing that looks like it might be good is Malicious, and maybe Zombie tycoon but Ill have to try it before i can make a final decision. I already have Demon souls, and it is the worst game in my collection, people are going to love it or hate it, i just couldn't get into it because it doesn't have any real story, which is half the fun in a RPG. So for me EU wins another month of PS+, its funny how they always get better stuff.
