  • Solid update. Thanks! I just wish Machinarium would have also been free for Vita. Here’s my IGC wishlist:

    God of War (all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
    Grand Theft Auto (all games in the series)
    Hitman Absolution
    Machinarium (Vita)
    Max Payne 3
    Metal Gear Rising
    Metal Gear Solid HD (PS3), digital version of MGS4
    Red Dead Redemption
    Red Faction Guerrilla & Armageddon
    Uncharted 1 & 2

    Also, could you add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store? It’s available in all regions except North America, and it’s also the only MGS game I haven’t played!

  • 5 BUCKS for TWD? O-M-G

  • Wow, nice sales!

  • Morgan, question.

    If I already have a Music Unlimited subscription, can I stack the PSN + one you mention above onto this or no ?


    “30% Discount for PS Plus members (PSN Price: $59.99; PS Plus Price: $41.99)”

  • EERHH?? I was expecting more sales for Vita. =( Only hope that Sony dont forgive teh Vita at the conference

  • Ctrl+F, “Vita”.


  • Sony <3
    PS+ such an awesome service supporting you and your products is my way to say thank you

  • Hello Morgan. Well, i don´t want to enlarge the complainers’ mass. PS+ is an awesome service that is too cheap and it´s is very good. But last friday, you announced three new games for PS3’s IGC, but none for Vita. We know that Vita game library isn´t THAT big yet, but the Vita owners are feeling a little forgotten. It´s a little unfair.

    Despite this, i don´t know about “Virtue´s Last Reward” but “Gods Eater Burst” is a nice choice for Vita´s IGC, because the Vita´s dual analogic sticks make the game even better than in PSP.


    • I’ve heard nothing but good things about Virture’s Last Reward, and the community seems to be pretty excited about GEB. I’m thinking you’ll find those to be two solid games! But your feedback is definitely noted.

  • Too bad there couldn’t be a sale on Crysis 3, also, is the PS All Stars a vita cross buy discount?

  • Woooo XCOM!

  • Any Sony rep please answer:

    What happened to the free avatar and dynamic themes that were included in PlayStation Plus?! Why haven’t we seen any new items in months? People signed up for the free games, discounts and more but also for avatars and themes!

    I hope this gets answered.

    To the Sony rep who views this; replying or not, have a great day.

    Thank you.

    • The focus for PS Plus as of last year is definitely the Instant Game Collection, Discounts, and excluisve features like Betas, early access, etc. Avatars can still definitely come through, but it’s just not the focus for the program. Thanks for the note!

  • So, this week we get only Machinarium for free or do we get all 4 games at once (Uncharted 3 SP, X-COM:EU, LBPK, and Machinarium)? Also, is Machinarium Vita included or is it only PS3? *fingers crossed*

  • You’d be a fool not to get Sound Shapes for $3.75.

  • Nice Discounts… but seems I’ll be still waiting for a Ni No Kuni discount

  • Oh yeah, looking forward to the streaming tonight!!!! Should be the best show in the whole E3! :D

  • @1 + T3DV0L70L1N4

    You should simply just buy them and support the developers. Those are Fantastic Games that deserve to be Bought.

  • id rather have Saints Row 3 this week than machinium (which i’ll probably never play). But Xcom and Uncharted 3 seem fun for free.

  • oh wow that is an awesome update!!!! :D :D

  • So now we can see the results from the poll? :)

  • I am gettin’ Tomb Raider! #finally Thanks guys!

  • Killer deals! Unfinished Swan is an insta-purchase at that price. I just sold Xcom because it was coming to plus. Only need to beat it on ironman, impossible to plat it. It hurts……

    Uncharted 3 was amazing. Not sure if it is a great addition to the library though considering how big the dang file is.

    LBPKarting. my kids gonna love it! Thanks bunches! :D

  • Also, man the game selections in that E3 sale really suck. not a single one i care about. Can we please get an rpg sale someday which discounts both western and japanese rpgs on the store?

    I’m getting sick of seeing games like Borderlands, Sound Shapes, tomb raider, and Unfinished Swan on sale every other week it seems. Need new selection of games at discount.

  • Thank you Morgan! You are my haro!

  • @8 Unless something changes at E3 today, it was announced a few weeks ago that the Three new games for PSVita′s IGC won’t be in either June or July’s PS PLUS additions.

  • All Stars Battle Royale is tempting, but that HAS to be a Plus game down the line at some point. What to do!

    Also, I HIGHLY recommend Tomb Raider, especially at that price. I got it during the flash sale at $29.99 & I can’t believe how good it is.

  • I still wish Machinarium was the Vita version instead. Give the Vita a little extra love and it just looks like it’d be better on the OLED with touch controls. Still cool to get to play it though.

  • Great update! Will you ever put Heavenly Sword or Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on PSN?

    • I don’t think any of those titles are available on the PS Store. Once and if they come to the PS Store, then there’s always a chance, but at this time, if it’s not on the Store, then there’s no way we could get it in Plus.

  • Assassin’s Creed III Liberation for $13.29 ?!?! Am i still dreaming??? Thanks a lot!

  • Thx for the awesome update !

  • i love how music unlimited had 0% on the poll when i checked. It makes sense considering people can stream music free on youtube anyway. They should have offered video unlimited discounted instead.

  • Man is saints row 3 coming the last week of the month or something? That’s the main thing I want this month from plus.

  • E3 and you couldn’t even include at least one of the Vita IGCs?!

    And only three Vita games in the sale?

    Super lame. I expected better. Here’s hoping Sony’s Press Conference doesn’t disappoint.

    • The E3 sale is the main celebration event for E3, along with the new PS3 Full Games. I hear ya on the PS Vita feedback, and thank you for letting us know your thoughts.

  • Great update! my vita needs ac liberation :P

    @Morgan, can you disclose how the support of ps+ for ps3 will be after the launch of ps4?

  • Velocity Ultra????????????????????????

  • Sound Shapes for $3.75?

    Thank you!!!

  • @ #12- This post is everything happening this week, so yes all the free games and sales listed are added tomorrow.

  • Still amazed by the IGC!! great job..and the sales are awesome!!! It feels good to be a plus member.

  • ahhh, $5 TWD is seriously tempting for digital, and I might grab Sound Shapes too ;o
    Very nice update, though I do hope U3, XCOM & LBPK aren’t going to stay all year like the previous three — though I am looking forward to playing what I haven’t already :}

    Kick some butt at E3:)

  • Look at those sales. Good job Sony.

  • Anybody that does not pick up Tomb Raider, The Walking Dead, Dishonored, or Sound Shapes at those prices are just plain crazy. Terrific games, the lot of ’em. I’m definitely grabbing TWD and Tomb Raider (already have the other two).

  • this Tuesday is a huge slap to the face for vita owners for sure, one indie game that came out in Europe awhile ago, nothing on ps+ and the few sales im just plain upset.

  • I hope we hear more about how Sony plans to improve both its PS Vita support and PS Plus at E3 tonight.

  • Uncharted 3 was amazing!!!

  • Dangisuckatgamin

    you guys get games all the time free now, Vita players are whiners plain and simple.
    (not to mention you get sales quite a bit as well)
    I didn’t sign up for plus to get Vita releases and i still don’t want them.

    I think it’s a slap in the face to the original console members when they use two weeks of the month for VITA Releases.

    Think about that one, Sir.

  • @ #9-I believe the PSASBR price will get you both versions if you buy the PS3 one and not the Vita. Based on the price, and the discounts, it does look like the PS3 version, so you should be ok.

  • Dangisuckatgamin

    We’ve really already had RDR as Instant Game once, i don’t see that happening again anytime soon.
    And haven’t we had GOW’s before (GOW 2?) too? (obviously minus the new one)

  • GhostBoosterver1

    why only for ps plus i want it

  • some games on sale for the 10th time! would like to see some new ones for a change

  • Vita Ignored

    Disappointing that in such a big week in the industry PlayStation Plus is almost totally ignoring the Vita. No free games and only one of the sale items is for the Vita. Sony could have at least offered the Vita version of Machinarium as well. The monthly Plus offerings for the Vita are also pretty light. Please deliver Vita owners the same amount of love as PS3 owners in the future!

    • Vita is far from ignored. 2 free PS Vita games are coming later this month, and you’ll see us continue to unlock its potential. It’s feedback that goes back and forth as when a PS Vita game comes through, the PS3 only guys might feel slighted. It all comes around to everyone in the end =)

  • @46 RDR has never been in the IGC in the US my friend.
