[ Edited ]

Hopefully you’ve been digging into some of the free PlayStation Plus content this month including Vanquish, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X, and indie-hit Closure. This week, we’re excited to bring the crowd-pleasing Plants Vs. Zombies on PS Vita to the Instant Game Collection.

 

In addition, there are some fantastic sales to jump on as well including the Gamers’ Choice Awards discounts (winners announced tomorrow) and the PS Vita Anniversary Sale celebrating PS Vita’s first year. Read on to learn more about these exceptional sales.

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita or click here to get access via the Sony Entertainment Network online store.

 

February 26th PlayStation Plus Update

Plants Vs. Zombies (PS Vita)

PSN Price: $10.49, Free for PS Plus members

Popcap’s irreverent take on the real time strategy genre is yours to play free on your PS Vita starting this week as a PS Plus member. At first glance, you may think it’s just another cute strategy game. Get your hands on it, and you’ll find an incredible amount of strategy that relies on everything from picking the right plants, determining their placement, and decisions while under fire from masses of zombies. The PS Vita version sports a ton of great features including co-op multiplayer, a ton of modes, and even some mini-games to keep you busy, making putting Plants vs. Zombies down an pleasantly tough proposition.
 
Retro/Grade (PS3)

PSN Price: $9.99; PS Plus Price: $2.44

Retro/Grade Soundtrack

PSN Price: $7.99; PS Plus Price: $1.74

The game that turned rhythm games upside down is now available at an irresistible price for PS Plus Members! Starting at the end of the game and working your way back to the sound of head-bobbing retro tunes, you’ll need to ensure the pilot makes it alive through his backward journey through time. With 10 dazzling ‘backwards’ worlds, epic boss fights, and a seriously fantastic soundtrack, it’s a deal that everyone should jump on. If you like the music, we also went ahead and put the soundtrack on sale as well! You can grab it for $1.74 on the PS Store as a PS Plus member.

but the feedback from you guys on this note has not gone unnoticed nor unreported. While I stand by the value that Plus gives NA gamers, and still feel it’s the best gaming subscription service around, I can see why some might feel that this is an issue.

Is there any plan to actually start moving closer to what EU is giving, or is this just a bunch of BS? I remember several month before December you said that there was a discrepancy between the two services and the plus team has been working to fix it, but nothing has changed sience then. Also if you want to find a better gaming subscription service then you should look at the ps+ EU gets.

Overall nothing much for me this week. Bought Plants vs. zombies vita a year ago and had fun with it. I already have most the games that will be on sale. Hope next week is better.

As fun as PvZ is, it should be noted that it is currently FREE on iOS (both the HD and regular version). Here's the HD link for proof: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/plants-vs.-zombies-hd/id363282253?mt=8

 

As such, this update is extremely disappointing. Talk about awful timing.

Nothing for me as well, unless Borderlands 2 goes on sale 50% off. I just re-upped my plus subscription, so I am good till Nov. 22, 2014. How is that for loyalty Playstation?

Great Update, PvZ is an awesome game.

 

Also do you know when Oddworld Strangers Wrath will be on sale for the vita?


I know Stewart had mentioned there would be a PS+ discount soon, was just waiting for sony approval.

I would have been satisfied if the PS3 version was given out as well. (This doesn't mean I want it to be next months full PS3 game) I am just saying if it's free mostly everywhere else and I am pretty sure the PS+ team had high chance of getting us the PS3 version as well.

I reupped my subscription also. I'm good until August 2014. I have plenty of games to enjoy though. I still play nba jam (love that game), vanquish (totally worth the subscription), and a bunch of others that I got off of plus. So far the subscription has saved me over $130 in game cost. It has good weeks and bad weeks, but overall the subscription is totally worth it.
