Make sure you check out the co-op challenges scattered throughout the game’s world to get the most from Outland’s breathtaking world.

 

Bloodrayne: BetrayalFree for PlayStation Plus Members

With this year’s PSN PLAY in full swing, we thought we’d revisit one of last year’s PSN PLAY titles to deliver free to Plus members. Sporting incredibly slick animation and amazingly detailed characters, monsters, and environments in luscious (LUSCIOUS) high resolution, this is a game that many might have missed, and now have no excuse not to check it out.

We’re always looking to get members the best deals on new releases,so we’re making the anticipated PSN Game Papo & Yo that much easier to snag when it drops on 8/14. It’s an amazing world crafted by the team at Minority. Follow a young boy named Quico and his best friend Monster through the surreal favelas of his homeland. It’s a dangerous journey through a constantly changing world, and you get an exclusive price break on the new adventure. Check out all the great features on Papo & Yo and pick up the game this week!

 

August 21st PlayStation Plus Update

 

 

Dust 514Closed Beta Access and 50% off Mercenary Pack Add-On

Remember that Beta I talked about earlier? I know, it was a bit in the making but we’re happy to welcome our friends from the Dust 514 team into Plus with exclusive access for the closed beta. Dust 514 is the free to play first person shooter that may change the face of how we battle online in games. Help test the first live direct connection to the extremely popular EVE Online MMO as players on the main server in DUST 514 and EVE Online can chat in real time and send in-game mail between games. It’s a first in gaming, it’s free to play when it releases later this fall, and exclusive access is coming to Plus members on 8/21. You’ll have until September 4th to jump in the Beta. Read more about the features available in this Beta in a post from Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer on Dust 514.

 

PlayStation Plus Update August 2012

 

We’re also sporting a 50% discount on the Mercenary Pack DLC for Dust 514 which gives access to in-game currency to spend in game, skill boosts, and exclusive gear. Now I know what you’re thinking: this is a beta, how can I buy Add-Ons if it’s in beta? Good question! Any Add-Ons that are purchased with Dust 514 while the game is in Beta will be carried over when the game releases later this fall. So buy with confidence! There’s a ton of great Dust 514 blog posts; read up on the game and jump in the Beta.

 

PlayStation Plus Update August 2012

 

Counter Strike: Global Offensive20% discount for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $14.99, PS Plus Price: $11.99)

It’s the return of the king. The first editions of Counter Strike back in the day paved the way for what online shooters are today. Now Valve is partnering with PlayStation to deliver this new release 20% off when it becomes available for download on 8/21. The final title of the PSN PLAY promotion, make sure you’ve picked up as many titles from PLAY as possible so you can get the most amount of PlayStation Store credit back on September 7th.

 

Natsume Sale 50% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Prices: $14.99, PS Plus Price: $7.50)

Natsume fans! Got a PSP? You’re in luck. 4 of Natsume’s best titles including some of the best from the Harvest Moon series are going on a nice 50% off sale. Adventures To Go!, Harvest Moon: Boy & Girl, Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon , Reel Fishing: The Great Outdoors, and Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley are all part of the sale.
Watch the PlayStation Store Updates for more news on additional Plus deals. Stay tuned for our next update scheduled for August 27th, and as always, let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Re: Official PlayStation Plus Update Thread

Oct 3, 2011

Thanks for keeping these types of post rolling ...

Another good month for me.  I passed up Costume Quest discounted several times over the last 9+ months; always kept my fingers crossed that it would come up again at Halloween.  Yippie.

Eufloria and PJ Sidescroller are day one purchases for me - love the day one discounts!

Warhawk - I have not played this one in years and probably have the original PSOne disk somewhere - should be a welcome PSP (and at some point Vita) distraction.

All and all, color me very happy with the Sep and Oct updates.

I'm still here; apologies. I've been super busy working on getting Only On PSN out the door on our end, and it took away some of my time in the forums. I've been doing the Official ones for the Store Update, and will start doing the Official ones for the Plus posts, just so I can get them featured on the front page of the forums and get more people into the discussion (hopefully).

Please drop feedback for the month's updates here, and I'll know to grab it, but I'll keep an eye out on the other posts as well  =)

Thanks!

Re: Official PlayStation Plus Update Thread

Oct 8, 2011

Anyone enjoying the discounts?  I finally picked up Blob.  Have wanted it for a while - enjoyed the demo - but as usual have such a backlog that I have held off.  For under $4, I decided to pick it up ... and have only played that first demo level!

I also picked up Eufloria; that backlog thing has prevented me from giving it a go.  Maybe sometime this weekend, but with kids soccer games today, and tomorrow I will be at the Falcons game ... getting ready to cry over a cheese whipping, but I digress.

I know I will pick up the PixilJunk title.  Not sure what else, but I will probably go for the 'spend $50 in Oct, get $10 back in Nov' deal.  Stacking with PS+ discounts is a good time.

DIscounts this month have been awesome, RE5 was a big score, also got About a blob, burnout crash and many others. Ps+ makes spending money so much more enjoyable lol.

Can't wait to see what the last update of oct brings and what is in store for nov.
