This week, US subscribers to PlayStation Plus will receive Platinum Games’ amazing shooter Vanquish for their Instant Collection. The notoriously fast-paced and difficult shooter is not for the faint-hearted but well worth the investment. PSP and Vita title Mega Man Maverick Hunter X will also be made available for free, as will a Starter Pack for DUST 514, the EVE Online tie-in MMOFPS. Members are also offered 20% off Urban Trial Freestyle on PlayStation 3 and Vita, although notably, it does not support cross-buy. Visit the PlayStation Blog for more details.
