  • Also how about some discounts on PS Vita titles? Doesn’t have to be nowhere near 50-75% :)

  • Foosball, Machinarium, House of Dead and LBP Karting will be mine this week xD

  • Get Skyrim or Guardians of Middle Earth on PS+
    EU got GoME already, hook us up.

  • retro city rampage, cronovolt and now foosball, at leas price drops, discounts for vita games

  • Might get LBPK, Jak and Daxter and ratchet and Clank, very nice discounts but missing the essentials (Journey, TWD, etc).

    But the free game…come on, you gave us the amazing Darksiders last week, you can do way better than Foosball. Thank you anyway, I hope you offer future discounts on Ni no Kuni released tomorrow!

  • Foosball is the devil

  • @UltimateDisco I could go for bigger memory cards, cheaper would be nice too, but I need more memory. I have a 32 GB card, and I’m still worried about filling it up, thanks to Plus :). Need more/better games for Vita Plus though. We’ve had those games for a while. AND MORE CROSS-BUY GAMES; DO IT SONY

  • Little Big Planet Karting for 10$ and The Cave = busy week!!! PlayStation is the best by far.

  • Yep… That’s not a good week for PS Plus.

  • are u kidding me?????? Foosball really???? every week vita is getting a dissapoining release… man ps plus for vita really aint worth it after the initial IGC collection… next week…. a better game?? i wouldnt count on it… i give up… will let my ps plus expire and maybe switch over to UK account for good

  • @UncannySilk:

    That comment just made my day! I can log off now…

  • Johnny_Leyenda,

    Just wait, those games will definitely come up in the Gamers Choice Awards in February, they don’t want to double dip, and Journey and TWD will have a strong possibility of winning, which will give them discounts.

  • Fantastic deals on a lot of those games. Will definitely pick up a handful of those.

  • “We’re not looking for Foosball, we need more games like Borderlands, Bioshock, or Darksiders. I would personally like to see another shooter, maybe Killzone.”

    You guys that expect big budget triple A games every week while paying $4 a month really need to get a grip on reality.

    Great update btw, was on the fence for the foosball game for awile. Also will be getting the unfinished swan. Thank you!

  • These discounts are amazing! THANKS! This is what makes PlayStation Plus worth it :)

  • The sales are great, the rest is rather bland but acceptable.

  • Foosball what is the issue if you dont like it, dont download the game. Is easy.

  • Will Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch make it as a Day 1 PSN Game?

  • what about the sly 4 demo that was suppose to be for PS+ this week?

  • Also forgot to say, I would enjoy PS2 classics for Plus games; when we get better/actual “Classics”. Add the rest of the Twisted Metal games to PSN, or make a collection with all 7 other console games for PS3 or the soon to be PS4. I think that’d be a big $$$ maker.

  • Slam dunk on the 13 for 13 but fail on Foos Ball :(

    Would have loved to see Ninja Gaiden Sigma or Spy Hunter or the like.

  • Awwe shoot. Those are some really nice discounts but I already got NiGHTS and JSR when they were discounted to $5. Kinda pisses me off that they’re down to $2.50 only a month later. Also bought LBP Karting earlier this month for $30, but I prefer having discs of my games anyway so I guess it isn’t a major loss.
    I wish we got the monthly forecast for ps+ like Eu does though so that I can know what to expect with a little time in advance, then I wouldn’t have to go out and buy stuff that I could get cheaper from plus later on. It almost feels like a risk to not wait it out now.

  • Foosball is fun, you guys. Stop crying.

  • Yeah, Karting looks great. I’m playing LBP2 right now. It seems so fitting.

  • I’ll definitely be picking up LBP Karting and Machinarium, Fooseball on the Vita will give me something to do on the bus. Still haven’t scratched the surface on Darksiders and my buddy lent me Fallout 3 so I’m going to be overloaded. Thanks PS+, you make my gaming affordable and diverse!

  • I really like the 75% off sale for PS Plus – hope future sales we get 75% off as well! Time to finally get The Unfinished Swan – I’ve been holding out for a sale like this or hoping to eventually get it for free on Plus. I might as well get Jak and Daxter for $2 too! Haven’t played it since the PS2 days.

    Also, it might not be for everyone, but Foosball 2012 is pretty fun and not a bad Vita game. Just wish there were more players online when it came out. Hopefully multiplayer will be better now that the game is free.

    By the way, Morgan if you are still thinking of changing the PS Plus update posts to once at the beginning of the month, I think it will really help with the negative feedback. A smaller PSN game like foosball looks pretty crummy on it’s own, but as 1 out of 3 or 4 games in the month including Darksiders and a 75% off sale? Suddenly January looks pretty good! Just a thought – I really enjoy the service, keep it up!

  • I dont want to complain, but this is another disappointing month for vita, Chronovolt was awful, and i have never seen great things about foosball. There is still another week left for something to come on vita but i doubt any thing will.

  • I’m thinking of picking up LittleBigPlanet Karting for $10…not a bad price at all for that! Also, been playing through my review copy of “escapeVektor” on the Vita…really enjoying that so far.

  • I see maybe 5 games that I will be buying this week…

  • Pros:

    A couple full PS3 games.
    Very high discount like Plus use to get (and EU still does).


    A very high number of the titles on sale have already been on sale or free in recent months.
    Other than LBP Karting no new PS3 full games. (yeah golf is PS3, not very new or good though)

    Solid update for people who haven’t had plus long, or people who don’t already own the games.

    For long time Plus users who already bought the games they wanted the last 1-4 times they’ve been on sale (or free), not such a good sale.

    Great for people without the games, another slap in the face for people hoping to see recent PS3 games discounted, especially after the podcast people hyped it like there would be more full games. (if you’re not gonna match the offers the EU Plus get, don’t call it Plus in both regions and we’ll stop comparing).

  • Hey Morgan, is this the Vita game for the month, or can we expect something more next week? Thanks for what you guys do to make PS+ awesome!

  • “if you’re not gonna match the offers the EU Plus get, don’t call it Plus in both regions and we’ll stop comparing”


  • and about the free psvita game is a joke why a boring game :/

    look at Japan Store they get 4 good psvita game for free :/
    i want the same psvita games for free like the Japan Store

  • Bah plus expires tomorrow, nothing really worth renewing for me, sorry.

  • Meh,Foosball sucks and the game selection is pretty weak. Darksiders didn’t do it for me since i already have that game. So far i’m pretty disappointed with PS plus

  • boooooo. real foosball isn’t fun, why would it be better in video game form

    and the 13 for 13 are all just whatever.

    and lol @9 that’s a stupid complaint

  • So we get a sale on LBP Karting and you guys still complain ? Just go buy the game……Yeh that will surly improve sales.

  • Is there a chance we will see full PS3 games on 13 for ’13 Sale in the future?
    inFamous would be great, maybe Mortal Kombat too.

  • So, when are going to see the results of that pull from two weeks ago?

  • Dear Sony, we Vita owners haven’t none problem at wait about three or four weeks for a free title, if this title would be great. Just a tip.

  • Hey Morgan, is it possible to get some free PSP or PS1 games for Vita in the future? I’d definitely prefer them over any the latest additions for Vita (not counting the initial 6 for the collection. Those are awesome).

  • Best time EVER to buy “The Unfinished Swan”.
    The other good games (for me) i already have…

    I LOVE PSN PLUS!!!!!

  • Wow , LBP karting and Unfinished Swan deals!! Awesome! Thanks!

  • I Demand everyone reading this to BUY PSYCHONAUTS
    Might pick up Unfinished Swan and LBK, but first im getting Ni No Kuni

  • Morgan is really thinking of posting the PSN/PS+ update at the start of the month? I give full support!

  • YES! Amazing sales!!!
    This weak I’ll buy The Unfinished Swan… and Machinarium… and The House of the Dead… and Night… and… and… and… OH! I want all the games!!!

  • Foosball…..yay…..

    No discount at all on Ni No Kuni? i’d trade in the discount on all 13 of those games for a discount on one jrpg.

  • this is awesome =D exactly what i save up all my psn cards for, here’s hoping i don’t spend too much lol

  • Man, this gets worse every week. So glad I don’t invest in +

  • Hi Morgan, thanks for the update!

    Off topic, I’m trying to add funds to my wallet using the new PayPal option, but it is showing me a blank screen with the following message: Choose one of the following payment methods. And that’s all I get, the webpage does not show any payment methods.

    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks and have a nice week.

    • I’ve been hearing that feedback, and I’ll make sure the teams know that this is happening for some. However, not sure of any timeframes on this possible issue.
