    great update!! and I don’t even know what Knytt Underground or Big Sky Infinity are. Off to Google now.

    Anyone know the easiest way of checking when your + sub ends? I’ve completely forgotten when mine’s up for renewal.

    Well not totally free as you pay for the sub, but it’s a damn fine selection again considering the cost. They will end up making some money back on Vita memory cards too the gits. :)

    A truly amazing update, my entire 15 months of subscription is fulfilled this month only.
    Now lets listen to the plus haters.

    It’s under your account details off the PS3 XMB – under something reasonably obvious. It will also likely tally up with the info on one of the PS+ games you’ve played recently. Press Triangle on the game and scroll down to see the expiry date.

    Great update, haven’t got round to playing Vanquish so will be downloading that and Mortal Kombat Vita. At this rate I wont need to buy anything for my Vita as it’s all being included in my Plus Sub :)

    After I buy Arkham City in the Steam sale… Ah well, I reckon the price of the dlc on PS3 will probably eclipse the £4.99 I spent on the PC GOTY edition.

    I’m stoked for Vanquish though, almost bought that a few times, glad I withheld.

    Oh man, come on SONY, give me a break. I still have to play all those games from September…

    This is the first month of my sub where the games offered are ones I’ve already beaten. I knew my luck had to run out sooner or later.

    I’ve been keeping tabs on my sub – since June I’ve had/rented 48(!) free games that sell at a sum of 509.92 in the PSN store. Not too shabby.

    Thanks Doc! – I didn’t think of that. I may need to lay off the chronic.

    Who wants a free 30 day trial of Playstation Plus:


    Your welcome…

    I still can’t believe Batman Arkham City is free…. wooooow!!!


    Oh thanx dude, I forgot, this code is for UK only.

    Sadly, it seems the free 30 day trial thing, (only for uk) doesn’t work for existing customers. I also have one of it, but it doesn’t work for me.

    After a long time PC gamer, and Xbox owner and now having a PS3 I have to say Sony really do know how to treat their premium subscribers! Microsoft give us nothing! they only just got around to giving us a browser! I have my 360 set up now as a foot stool whilst I game on my PC and PS3!

    It would make sense that you’d have to be completely new to PS+ in order to use a ‘free 30 day’ code.

    I’m really impressed with the quality of the games they offer up for +. It could quite easily have been a dumping ground for low-selling mediocrity, but instead they consistently deliver great games.

    Glad to hear you came to your senses @14 ;)

    Welcome to the premium plus club. You won’t regret it :)

    That’s the great thing about subscription, if they don’t consistently put out great content on plus, people will simply move on. So it keeps both customers and sony interested.

    Oh what the fuck!? Come on Sony, don’t shaft the US Plus subscribers (speaking as one). Would love to have Arkham City in my instant game collection (I miss it, traded it in awhile back, just what you gotta do when you want something new, but you’re cash-strapped), as well as Vanquish. Already got Limbo a year ago, can’t think who hasn’t played it already, but would be an excellent edition none the less.
