It was my birthday in may and as usual I couldn’t decide what I wanted, so I asked for a couple of PSN/SEN vouchers, looking on the PlayStation Store I found myself drawn to the PS+ page more out of curiosity rather then anything else. As I looked through the games on offer I thought to myself you have the credit and although there isn’t much you want that is available there might be in the future. A few weeks later at E3 the instant game collection was announced, seems I had joined at the perfect time.
The first games available were:
Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
Chime Super Deluxe
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD
The great thing is you add them all to your cart and can download any time you wish, as long as you have a PlayStation Plus Subscription.
Between June when the Instant Game Collection and today there has been 3 games changed every month the other free games have been.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Lara Croft & The Guardian Of Light
Saints Row 2
Dead Space 2
Rock Of Ages
Just Cause 2
Red Dead Redemption
Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
Double Dragon Neon
Starhawk (Single Play Campaign)
Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit
Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Crysis 2 (Free to PS+ in November)
All of the above have been or are currently free to PS+ users in the UK, the value is well over the £39.99 that PlayStation Plus costs and with 3 more games each month is great value for money.
Other features of PS+ include automatic update, which requires your system to be on standby constantly and will turn on and off to update, 1GB of online saves storage and discounts every week.
