Welcome to June’s edition of the PlayStation Plus preview. At the start of every month we let you know what you can expect to hit the Instant Game Collection, and we’ll also detail the current week’s discounts. I’ll be sitting in for Morgan once again this week, but don’t worry, he’ll be back soon.

I’d like to introduce Square Enix’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution to the Instant Game Collection. With discounts on Portal 2, Let’s Fish! Hooked On, and GRID 2, you’re sure to find a deal worth picking up this week. After that, check out the hefty update we’ve got in store for the Instant Game Collection in June. Catch all the details below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Please delete my topic on this. As for the month outlook its looking fantastic! Are you people seriously going to complain about this? We get Deus Ex, Saints Row 3, Virtue last reward and more! Also I see Sony titles are leaving next week like LBP and infamous. I guess we'll get even more new games for those. Thanks for the awesome update Sony!

Looks like a great month! I love it when PS+ gives me the games I have been like a 50/50 on. Like Deus Ex, Saints Rows 3, VLR, all games I would like to play but not to pay since I don't want to make the plunge for it.

 

Same with other select games like Darksiders and Bioshock 2.

 

 

Good work PS+, also notice that you will likely unveil 2 new games for PS+ on the June 10th conference at E3, alongside Saints Rows 3 I presume, replacing LBP2, Infamous 2, and Ratchet.

All this plus 3 more full games from Sony to replace their flagship titles! I'm sure they will be sony exclusives like the ones being rotated out. God of War Ascension,  Uncharted 2 or 3, and more than likely Little Big Planet Karting are my guesses. Let the games begin!

Hey guys,

 

First Post but I've been lurking for a while (lost my other account password somehow...)

 

I bet this is pretty big for a bunch of you and thats good, but machinarum is the only one I'll even download. I don't  enjoy  shooters at all and open world adventures only if the context is right. So Deus Ex (which I didn't know still existed) and this Saints Row thing: no thanks Sony! As an RPG fan (of almost any kind) I haven't had so much love. It killed me that War of the Lions couldn't just be loaded up on PS3! I would gladly add SOC or Rainbow moon to my collection!

 

My wife just asked me, because she knows nothing about video games, how my PSN+ thing was going. I thought about it a good long while and realized that, aside from darksiders and labrynth legends, I was going to lose nothing if I let it lapse! Hook me up Sony!

 

Oh well, congrats to those who are happy about this one.
