Along the same lines of the updated US Playstation Plus store, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) also announced an exciting update to PlayStation Plus that guarantees subscribers receive at least three full games a month from a selection of the very best titles from the PlayStation Store. The update will provide users with a wide variety of the hottest titles, at no additional cost.
The great benefit to this offering didn’t quite settle in for me until I actually jump into PSN and saw all the great games I could download for free via Playstation Plus, I felt like a kid in a candy store, I almost felt like I was stealing it was that cool….not that stealing is cool or anything, I’m just saying. I instantly downloaded Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Hard Corp Uprising for some 2-player co-op action, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown for free.
Available as of yesterday, for our European gaming brothers and sister there will be an Instant Game Collection of 10 games to choose from ready to download and play as part of the updated PlayStation Plus subscription, with at least three games being updated monthly. The European launch line-up includes the brand new Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, as well as Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD, Renegade Ops, Chime Super Deluxe, Outland, Darksiders and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
As part of the 10 games available, there will be a PlayStation Plus Game of the Month. Additionally, as part of their subscription, members will have access to three digital Blu-ray blockbuster titles from SCEE – inFamous2, MotorStorm: Apocalypse and LittleBigPlanet 2. Bravo Sony!
