  • @carno_US: me too…

    Didn’t PS+ members just get a sale on Mushroom Wars last month…? And now that most PS+ users who were interested in the game looked it up at a discount, it’s being tossed to us as the free game? Seems kinda sneaky to me. But enjoy the game, folks who didn’t care enough about it to buy it on sale!

  • Mushroom Wars is probably one of the MOST Boring Game EVER!

  • WOO we get TerRover a week early! o wait… i got it a week ago. step it up sony

  • they always give game that put put on sale 1 or 2 month before.
    Same for Wipeout HD sale half price this spring fever, now free the first month of PSN+.

  • Is this mean Nothing for PSN+ users this week?!?

  • PS+ is really getting lame. No resubscribing here unless they get there act together, or maybe answer a few of our questions, but, we know with Grace that won’t happen. She’s notorious for posting and the running, never answering anyone legitimate questions or complaints. Instead of getting better, this service seems to be getting worse, which is sad.

  • next week what… Bi-monthly PSN+ updates!?! LOL
    Sony Scare ME!

  • Europeans get Medievil and Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. We get 2Xtreme… seriously?

  • damn i have mushroom wars ( i had critter crunch as well) that is disappointed ,first month was good i didn’t have wipeout HD

  • Thanx everyone for the response(s).
    I wasn’t too sure, I’ve tried going back ro other blog posting etc. for clarification but never came across it.

    Thanx again!

  • I think it was #24 who was from the eu side and he makes a good point. they only get free stuff once a month and for us its every 2 weeks. a lot of people complain and i mean…i dont know. i think plus is a good deal because i didnt have critter crunch, wipeout, or mushroom wars and the reason is because i couldn’t afford them when they were out. I like plus because i can get the games i couldn’t afford and now I can for free. honestly if you dont like it then cancel it. I hate the blog because of all the whiners. i find it to be a good deal but if you dont you are entitled to your complaints…

  • @ #3 & #12, I couldn’t agree more, well said.

    With regard to these next offerings from Sony for us Plus Subscribers, come one, stop handing out stuff we don’t want, more PS1 crap, first Rally Cross (awful) now Mushroom Wars, not looking too good already, & it was released in 1986!!!

  • What? we already got early access to the Terrover demo from Qore

  • This list is only for the first half of the monthly content since it’s now two updates per month instead of four so more things will probably be added in the next term.

    Already own Mushroom Wars but will give Vempires a go.

  • @King-Nicholas, Mushroom Wars is a cute RTS with little mushroom people and and cute music. It’s rather fun, and can be really hard, too bad I already own it :(
    And TerRover is already available for download through Qore which is free for Plus members.
    @remanutd5, I agree we need some more for PSP, but there are discounts on PSP games, just not as much. If you upgraded to a Go like I did, you are stuck with whatever SCEA decides to charge, and for however long they want too.

  • I AM SO GLAD I ONLY DID THE 3 MONTH TRAIL FOR $17 BUCKS! IF I PAID $50 FOR THIS PILE OF HOT CRAP I WOULD BE COMING TO LA TO WHIP SOME SONY ARSE! YOU GIVE CRAPPY FREE GAMES( THAT YOU KNOW EVERYONE HAS ALREADY) AND DISCOUNTS ON EVEN CRAPPIER GAMES! WTF! WE SHOULD BE GETTING DISCOUNTS ON CURRENT HOT GAMES LIKE SCOOT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD AND JOE DANGER! IDIOTS!

  • MUSHROOM WAR ?? MEH? WHERE DO U GUYS AT SCEA HAVE YOUR HEADS SHOVED IN? REALY ? I VE HAD MUSHROOM WARS FOR OVER A YEAR NOW , PLAYED IT A FEW TIMES , GOT BORING REAL REAL QUICK, GAME SUX . IM STARTING TO FEEL LIKE PLUS IS A BIG RIP OFF BIG TIME!!! SONY FEEDING US BIRD FOOD. THE WACKEST GAMES ARE THE ONES BEING OFFERD. WHY IS IT EUROPE PLUS GET BETTER STUFF. THEY GET SAM N MAX 5 EPISODES AND WE GET CRAP MUSHROOM WARS .SERIOUSLY ARE YOU GUYS AT SCEA USING METH OR SMOKING KRACK BECAUSE IT SEEMS YOUR LIKE YOUR BRAINS ARE FRIED. MUSHROOM WARS MEH WTF . what a waste of time .

  • Im confused , I thought i could download these games during my yearly subscription. I really have to download now or i dont get them for a discount ??? idk

  • I have been pushing all my friends to sign up for PS+ since it came out. I have been a huge supporter or it since day one, attempting to get people to get it.

    Now, My credibility has taken a hit with all my people.

    As a store manager of a retail shop, I know I shouldn’t be “steering” people in one direction but I honestly believed that PS+ was going to be SWEET!

    If you are an early adopter of many of the featured games you are pretty much OUT-OF-LUCK. There has been NOTHING that has made someone say “OH MY GOODNESS! I NEED TO GET PS+!”

    I know that I can’t get my money back so all that I have now is hope that PS+ will turn around.

  • @61 Here here, that is precisely the reason I too got +.

    For one I am quite happy that they are removing deals as time passes, if they didn’t what would be the point of getting it right away when one could wait 12 months and get everything the rest of us paid $50 day 1 (for the cost a 3 month subscription)? Really it just adds incentive to get it early and hope for the best.

    Also I hope we don’t get into the LBP2 beta, I would rather have Media Molecule select beta testers from LBP users that have made successful levels so that they can get useful feedback for a better player experience when the game releases this fall.
    (sorry, long winded)

  • @61 jvaq EUROPE PLUS GETS ALL THEIR CONTENT 1 SHOT ! US PLUS 2 SHOTS . I THINK 1 SHOT IS BETTER THAN HALF NOW HALF LATER.

  • I am disappoint Sony.

  • are you freaking kidding me the few games i own…. never fails

    better be avatars and dynamic theme

    peice of crap

  • Mushroom Wars looks awesome. I have a PSP too, Sony. Show your powerful portable some Plus love. Maybe you will get more Plus customers :)

  • @71 lbp2 beta better be for plus not no lame level dsigner. betas are part of my plus subsciption. let me go design a level for beta now! durr fail

  • PS+ equals….. BETAMAX! (remember?) i was of the first adopters and what came after? VHS!.
    Lesson learned, never be first adopter.

    So i’m waiting for a “plus” service like ……Blue ray video!, LOL.

  • @76 LOL.

    The funny part is that we can write,complain, yell, cry, etc all we want , they don’t even bother to read.

  • I like that we are being told what content is coming, that is a definite plus. The content itself? well….

  • I am confused, are the things added deleted every month or every two weeks? Would like to see a free movie added monthly or something. And to those guys complaining, it doesnt help that you people curse or say dumb things to these people that are doing their job, instead of complaining and throwing out names you should give them ideas or something.

  • Just in curiosity why have you changed it to a bi-weekly update? It was very exciting to me when it was every week.

    On another note is there any news on if PlayStation Plus users will get beta’s this year and also the Little Big Planet 2 beta!?

  • @78 im sure they read all comments, they just answer the questions that best suits them .i wonder how these people get jobs because if they were in a factory /manufacturing setting they would get fired . this wouldn’t pass quality control.

  • Not to sound ungrateful, but why is it the games we get are low rated or unpopular games, I bought PlayStation Plus the first day it came out because I figured Sony would give their members amazing deals, so far only game worth getting of the service is syphon filter. Come on, give us something amazing so that I don’t feel like I should have saved the $50 for Mafia 2.

  • Ok seriously, I already BOUGHT ALL 3 free psn games that have been offered now. I will NEVER purchase another psn game. Seriously Sony, you need to offer two games, and let members choose only one of those to download. This is ridiculous.

    And if we don’t get free avatars, DYNAMIC themes, and a free DLC then I’m calling my credit card company and having them refund my money, because promising something in a yearly subscription for each month and not giving that each month is FRAUD. So now I’m just waiting to see if you actually give those things as promised.

    And really, the first update for each month shouldn’t be at the end of a different month.

  • Also, I don’t see why people are surprised that the games we get aren’t that good. If Sony was offering brand new or highly rated games each month they’d lose money. I don’t expect great or brand new games from Plus, but I did expect to get at least one game I hadn’t already bought. Maybe in October……….

    And Sony’s lack of communication with their consumers makes me hate them as a company. You have a blog here, reply sometime. We may just be gamers, but helllloooo, we also are the people who buy your products. And you make me NOT want to buy your products by ignoring everyone. Duhhhh.

  • Good ideas: A new movie ounce a month, leave bi-weekly updates but make them more appealing. For example, the first week have it be PSP minins and themes, and the other week a great PS1 game(Resident evil, metal gear solid, etc) or a great PSN game (flow, pixel monsters, etc), or maybe even a movie. I didn’t mean to make my first comment sound like I was complaining, I meant to add this to it lol, these is a reason to my maddness :).

  • Comments here are ridiculous. If you buy the 12+3 month subscription, then each update costs $1.54. If you get $1.54 worth of free content or discounts from the update, then you break even. Or, if you get nothing from this discount and get $3.08 worth of stuff in the following update, you still break even.

    If you haven’t received $50 worth of free content and discounts by autumn 2011, then by all means start your whining then.

    People want Scott Pilgrim on its launch week for $1.54… Sheesh…

  • WOW , i can see what there doing , offering games that people never buy and then sell them or give to PS PLUS members , me personally am a hardcore gamer, none of these game appeal to US , unless ur 12 n under , which aint a bad thing, there only one game i like so far from PLUS and it was a ps classic syphon filter, i seen the Europe PS PLUS and they have tons of good free games like LBP , medieval, Pain, why do they get better stuff then North america?? im currently a plus member but after it expired might not be anymore. ( STEP UR GAME UP)

  • Any chance Soldner-X: Himmelstrurmer will be discounted too? I already bought the sequel on day 1.

  • Mushroom Wars is a huge win. Any word on the next full game demo? I really love those and hope they’ll be included monthly.

  • I think the TerRover thing is there for people who don’t feel like downloading over 1GB of content just to get access to a demo.

  • I’m at the point where I want my $50 back. So far the content on PlayStation Plus has been average at best. Why can’t they give us a free movie rental each month? Or a free game of our choice? Come on Sony, at least make it worth our hard-earned money!

  • bleh… already have mushroom wars, but still :) I like PS+. And I still think it’s better to use 50 in + than buying a 50 game that you’ll play to dead and finish in less than a month. In any case I buy games every now and then, + helps me get new (unless I have it :P) content every now and then without having to go too far.

    Finally! good think I waited before buying soldner :)… yes I dun mind being called a penny saver…

  • Look, I’m not saying that Plus should have great fantastic things and discounts that would ruin Sony financially , but Sony should at least step it up for a month ya know. Like if next month a game that is really good comes out on it or a movie, I will be content :), even if its for one month out of the year.

  • No one is happy with the American Plus, Sony…
    I seriously hope that X-chat is on it’s way soon.

    I´m glad that I got an European plus account for myself as well. They are not being cheap about it. Zen Pinball this month and Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse next month. How awesome is that?

  • @87

    I don’t believe rational gamers expect to get something for nothing.

    I think the average sentiment here is that people don’t expect ridiculous offerings just for entitlement sakes. Although people expect some kind of return on what is promised.

    Comic-con attendees gained entry into DC Universe beta,
    It was announced that Crysis 2 is going to have a 360 exclusive beta,

    Also another negative impact I am personally experiencing is I’m not purchasing nearly the amount of things that I did from PSN b/c I”m holding out to see if I can get it discounted from PS+.

    I already bought Mushroom Wars, Wipeout, Critter Crunch, Infamous, etc, etc, etc.
    I feel kind of burned b/c I already bought that stuff.

  • If Plus members don’t get the LBP2 and Killzone 3 betas then I will not be subscribing anymore. One of the things listed for Plus was access to betas, so you guys need to make this happen.

  • We want uncharted 2 skins Mp in plus !!!

  • i rarely comment but…….
    i was sold the idea that PS+ was for the hard core user.thanks GREG(IGN) an what Ive learned after 3 mounts is(wait for it)PS+ is for those who either just bought there ps3 or for those who NEVER buy PSN titles i being a PSN addict see games i already own/DLC i already own/themes i already own/game trial’s(you get my point)
    now an auto DL service that’s yet to update any thing but HULU preview (witch Ive already had an deleted)an the Kane&lynch demo doesn’t exactly simplify my experience I UNDERSTAND Sony has to juggle free content/wit production profits but for 50 bucks id like to see newer titles discounted, new themes discounted,DLC discounted ext… i don’t need free i just hate the idea i paid 50 bucks so you(the nub’s)can have games that i paid full price(4 free)Sony hook a brother up i bought your service now don’t forget loyal customers were there before plus you’ve got 15 month’s

  • I like knowing whats coming up for my PS+ subscription! Thanks guys, great work!

    Looking forward to Mushroom Wars, I was pretty interested in that before.
