  • I have Saint’s Row the Third on PC. I love that game. Not sure I want to play through it again, but I’m glad more people will get a chance to play it. I hope it motivates people to get Saint’s Row IV too.

  • Thanks, will try Saints Row.

  • Saints Row The Third . Cant Wait xD

  • god eater ? really ? hooo yeah !!!! psplus ist great !!!!

  • Morgan,
    Please pass the word to stop with the psp games for vita and push more for the actual vita titles.

  • Hate psp games but my love for plus is deep like the ocean. Morgan, we will get orc attack free when it comes out as a bonus right? It would be great if it was added into the IGC upon release without taking up a slot for that month (for example we get 2 vita titles per month on average, the month Orc Attack comes out can we get 3)? I know we would have to lose a title for it to come on but don’t make it so we lose a monthly title for it.

    • I don’t have any followup info on Orc Attack just yet, so I’m afraid I can’t confirm anything on whether that will be free at launch. Will let you guys know as soon as possible.

  • I’d like to see in PS+:

    PSP Games. I’d rather have the selection that is available in PSP games, then to have a native Vita game playable with a poor selection.

    RPG games. Any RPG, As somebody pointed out there has yet, as I can remember, been a RPG game for the PS3. I realize they have to be available digitally to give away, but there are a few on the PSN store.

    I’ve been wanting to play god eater burst for a few years now. I get the chance, so thank you. I’ll try saints row, but don’t play shooters for more than 20 minutes before I turn them off.

  • Thanks for PS Plus this month. The E3 sale is one of the best the service has seen thus far. I’m eagerly awaiting the unveil of next month’s game selection!

    Also, I love PSP titles as long as they are good games. I don’t care if it’s for PSP or for Vita, as long as it’s good, I’m interested. That said, I would rather see more RPGs as free games. Dracula X Chronicles would be fantastic too.

    • Yeah, the split on people wanting, or not wanting PSP in the IGC for PS Vita is actually fairly even. So for the time being, the PSP titles to the IGC aren’t going anywhere anytime soon just yet. But of course, we will continue to include PS Vita native titles as well for an even mix.

  • According to this link.

    Soul Caliber should be the one leaving this week. So why is it in the picture and BlazBlue isn’t?

    Leaving PS Plus In June
    June 4th – Sleeping Dogs
    June 11th – Closure
    June 11th – Ratchet & Clank All 4 One
    June 11th – inFAMOUS 2
    June 11th – LittleBigPlanet 2
    June 18th – SOULCALIBUR: Broken Destiny

  • Yeah I was waiting for Saints Row!!! But, no sale this week!? Why!?

  • I would absolutely love to see Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning available on IGC in July!
    PSN Plus Europe got it this month and it would be so awesome to see North America get it as well!

    Also, discounted DLC for amalur would be greatly appreciated as well :D

  • thank for god eater burst,for the complaint for psp games in igc,if the game is good what is the problem,thanks to psp games vita can have more variety of whishlist psp is corpse party,black rock shooter,metal slug collection,ys,metal gear peacewalker.

  • Im wondering, do you need to buy the separate online pass to be able to play online with a friend, or does this download already has online capabilities?

  • Been looking forward to playing Saint’s Row 3 for awhile. I was just waiting for a price drop on it, and now I get it for free. Thanks Sony, you guys are amazing. Ok, now enough talking, I need to get back to The Last of Us, and XCOM.

  • Online pass will be included #61. It has been included with all the other PS Plus games(that don’t specifically say “Single Player mode” only.).

  • You know what I love about PlayStation Plus the most? I already have 2-3 FREE PS4 games, and the system is not even out yet! :)

  • Cool… I have SR3 on the PC… I second Red Dead Redemption for PS3.. sounds good to me…
    Also I’d like to know when will Pinball Arcade be fixed? It still errors when I try and download it… ??!!

  • Nice update, although my HDD is jam packed with games so I can’t download any of those titles hahahaha.

    By the way, here’s my wishlist for the PS Vita side of PS Plus

    Persona 4 Golden (PSV)
    Resistance: Burning Skies (PSV)
    Shinobido 2: Revenge Of Zen (PSV)
    Silent Hill: Book Of Memories (PSV)
    Uncharted: Fight For Fortune (PSV)
    Sumioni: Demon Arts (PSV)
    New Little King’s Story (PSV)
    Army Corps Of Hell (PSV)
    Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurer Of Arland (PSV)
    Dead Or Alive 5 Plus (PSV)
    Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock (PSV)
    Dokuro (PSV)
    Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R (PSV)

    Any of those would make me happy.

    Will Wipeout2048, Uncharted Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush change for another 3 games soon?

  • Saint Row for PS3 goes up, but PSP, Megaman X, soul calibur, tekken, final fantasy and now gods eater …. I better win a free game via PSN plus like limbo and flower for the Vita than that, everyone played these games on the PSP.

  • Whoa, I must say I’m very surprised on how awesome that Gods Eater Burst looks.I’ll have to try it out on my buddy’s PSP for sure.With some neat games like that I might actually consider getting a Vita if you ever drop the ridiculous price to something reasonable….and get more games that don’t suck on it.

    • yeah I personally never saw anything about it until it was coming in Plus and I did some research on it. Game looks pretty cool.

  • OMG, Plus is amazing I downloaded Deus Ex (rated by IGN 9.0), Uncharted (10.0) and Xcom (8.9) for free, I bought Tomb Raider ( 9.3) and Borderlands 2 (9.4) for 19.99 each and now Saint Row 3 for free. You are the best of the best Sony.

  • I love Saints Row the Third. So I will definitely get it for my PS3 now.

    And not everyone who has a Vita has a PSP, so these PSP games for Vita are nice for us that don’t have a PSP.

  • are we getting Saints Row 3 The Full Package or are we just getting the regular Saints Row 3 ?

  • Thanks for the update…SR3 is not a game that is worth of ma money….also thanks for Gods Eater will see if its any good since its anime stylized should be good…..BTW I’m really curious about how plus will work on PS3 when the PS4 releases…because I’m not getting a PS4 anytime soon and I really wanna keep getting some freebies.

  • Thanks Nickjayz!

  • Loved Saints Row: The Third on 360, glad I get to go through it again for trophies!

  • Agree with #44….I don’t want PSP games, I want Vita games!

  • @64 what do you mean 2-3? All we are getting is Driveclub free for plus. Where do you get 2-3 from?

    • there were some additional indie titles announced at the press conference as well for the PS4 IGC. We’ll have more detailed information on this in the coming months, but he’s not wrong.

  • color me impressed, thank you very much sony, I am a satisfied customer

  • I’ve also been a member for about a year now, and I gotta say, PS+ this month makes me a proud member.

    Seriously, other than Uncharted 3, ALL the games that you guys are throwing at me this month have been on my wish list!

    Thank you!

  • Thanks again! Another great addition to the IGC!!

  • Are the E3 discounts getting removed this week?

  • Thank you for Saints Row The Third! I wasn’t too keen on it when it first came out but the buzz on it was making me take a second look, now it’s free baby!

  • So I noticed that PS Plus has lots of M rated games, as a 1st party compliance specialist, I am wondering if there is something on the PSN implemented to keep under-aged kids from accessing these M rated titles? I haven’t had the chance to test PS Plus titles before.

  • Hey morgan, are we getting the Digital version of the Jak and Daxter collection for vita in this update? I wanna know so i can go buy a PSN card. Any news would be greatly appreciated.

  • Oh…E3 sales vanishing and … sales?

  • Well, still nothing for me THIS YEAR!!!!

    But SR3 was a fun game for anyone (if there is anyone) who hasn’t played it yet.

    PSP games suck though, the Vita needs Vita games.

    If you want to give us really old (like psp) games, then bring back PS1/classics to Plus and dump this whole BBRC (Bargain Bin Rental Collection) stuff already.

  • @84, you need parent consent to have a PSN account, and you need a credit card for playstation plus, so it’s all up to the parents.

    For your question, No, why would there be?

  • It would be nice to play Pinball Arcade on my Vita sometime this year. Still errors whenever I try to download it. Some information on WHEN you’re going to fix it would be nice.

  • Thx ps+ :D

  • You goofed up on the new Instant Game Collection photo. On the Vita portion, you removed the Blazblue CSE image (leaving next week) instead of Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny (leaving tomorrow).

  • Hey Morgan

    You mentioned its complicated how games enter the IGC. So take some time one day and break it down for us. As paying customers we’d like to know seriously.

  • I’m a huge fan of Plus, and finding out it will continue to the PS4 made me pre-order it. I hope that we can expect the same breadth of games going forward.

  • @84 If you are concerned about what someone you know is playing you can always adjust the system “Parental Control” settings to not play games rated higher then a certain point. They use use numerical values for rating. 1 Being Everyone 9 Being Grotesquely Violent or Extreme subject matter.

    @88 Playstation Plus does not require a Credit Card. You can use pre purchased network cards from retailers to purchase your membership without ever using a credit card.

  • @Morgan – Been waiting on this uspdate but to be honest you could of gave us a heads up on the Uncharted. First we could of downloaded the multiplayer and had it waiting if we didn’t already have it. Next, Multiplayer – 5gb, Single Player Add-on 12GB, 2D movies 12GB. That’s just killing the memory right there.

    Having fun with the newly released Tekken game, but people glitch out of the world on it.

    LBPK not bad

    XCOM I don’t know I just couldn’t get into it.

    Still amazing month. I bought Liberty City Stories to keep me busy.

    • sorry man, I can only share stuff when it’s ready to be shared, but I always try to get that info out as soon as possible.

  • update*

  • PS4 E3 was great , PS Vita E3 was a big joke , if sony don’t make the Vita better than now (and by now I mean it’s a device to play indies and old ports LOL) I will never support it anymore and start investing in my 3DS at least I know it have better fufter and it’s getting more and better exclusive games, while the Vita YAY we are getting lots of indies and old ports , maybe there is 1-2 great titles coming in very long time , but we don’t know anything after these games come out , and it seems to me that sony will turn the PSV into an accessory for the PS4 , what about the people who don’t want ps4? why sony didn’t tell us that at the time we bought our Vitas? for me it’s hard to trust sony again.

  • better future*

  • Hi Morgan,

    In all of the amazing announcements about PlayStation Plus and the Playstation family last week at E3, there was something missing that has been bothering me as a PlayStation Plus user. I love PlayStation Plus and the IGC, but I’d like to request a new feature – if at all possible.

    Sometimes I’ll “buy” an IGC game because it’s available and I want to play it – however, later this game will be available again to PSPlus users at a discount. If I REALLY like the game, sometimes I’d be totally willing to drop the dough for the discount, just so that if I ever leave PSPlus, the title is still mine. Under the current system, if I buy a game through IGC, I can’t buy it later at a discount to keep. Is there any way to get around this? Are there any plans to allow people to buy a game OUT of their IGC?

    It’s just a feature I’d like to see. I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but I think a few people would agree that it’s unfortunate that you can’t outright buy the games once you’ve had them on IGC.

    Thanks for an awesome week!

    • I hear you, and it’s something that the teams are aware of. Thank you for the note though, i think it makes sense.

  • dang now i need more room on my ps3 LOL. but still i have not beaten saints row 2 should i do that before i get 3?
