    Nice! I might finally get Escape Plan now.

    What would be really spectacular is finally adding Crash and Spyro to the Vita store though. There’s no reason NOT to do it!

  • @Kssio_Aug Yeah sorry about that. But on a positive note welcome to the Vita club! (and PS Plus as well)

  • @150: Episode 1 SHOULD be free, look it up somewhere.

    @Morgan: Is it gonna be a late store update today or you’re dropping it tomorrow after maintenance?

  • Aww too bad I already own VLR. Oh well it’s a really good game. But you definitely need to play 999 first score playing VLR or else you’ll be confused on whats going on. :S

  • before**

  • PrimeroIncognito

    Quite a generous update. Thanks Plus team, and thank you to the various developers/publishers who offered their content for the program this month.

    PS+ continues to shine.

  • Please, make Battlefield 3 for free. Please.

  • ikissedmygrandpa

    I kinda want NBA2K11 to be free next month or maybe Madden 09….get to work on it Morgan

  • @ MorganHaro cuando pondrán el listado de juegos para el mes de Julio?? ya que en Europa ya lo subieron y me muero de ganas de que aquí den el Unit 13 y el Battlefield 3 :D ojala así sea! y de antemano este mes estuvo fabuloso!!! gracias

  • @MorganHaro
    Have been checking psn for quite a while but it looks like it still hasn’t updated. Would you know what time roughly that the update will take place?

  • Update is already up. Downloading Zero Escape now.. contemplating escape plan.. but I still think it stands a good chance of going on PS+.

    What are the chances of Fat Princess PSP ever usable on Vita?

  • @ Slizarus Thanks for the info mate…. Must have missed the update by a few minutes… Anyway about the fat princess question, as stated by Morgan earlier it is currently not compatible with the vita however if the psp version of the game is demaned by many vita owners the developers will come out with the patch.

  • @ DARZERO – Wow…are you serious?…both games are crappy games.I dunno why someone would want them….I really hopes MS keep those games for themselves.

    Hydrophobia for $0.60…wow I remember when that game was free for Plus…but I remember all the crap people said about it as well.

  • I actually own Fistfull of cake on digital on PSP, but since i have no more PSP, i cannot enjoy this great game….Do you find this situation acceptable ???

    Why fat princess is not compatible Vita ??? Can you do a little more extra to make it happen ? I mean, we are reaching almost 2 yrs of Vita life, and all PSP and PS1 games are not compatible ( but they are, actually, just not released by sony as such )

    It is really not nice, especially for the PSP games from sony ( third parties have already turned their back on the vita )…

  • I know that Blaz Blue’s last day is tomorrow will it still be able to download tomorrow or no?

  • Does anyone have a problem where, when you download something on your Vita, it gets stuck on “Preparing to Download…”? When you press cancel, the screen gets grayed out a bit, and gets stuck. I have to turn it off, and then turn it back on. It’s not terrible, but really annoying.

  • Anyone else who downloaded Saints Row: The Third who is a Plus Member also get a 60 minute timed trial message? I thought that was part of the Games Collection for the full game/no time limit as long as you are a Plus member? Am I needing to download something else a different way or??? Anyone that can answer would be great! :)

  • GMFCO311 – I don’t have that problem with Saints Row: The Third. It says it expires next March. I guess that’s when my PS Plus expires. Maybe you should try downloading it again and make sure it’s the regular version.

  • I really wish there was a line-up of new games for the vita at e3. Such a small library for over a year since launch
    Anyone know of something soon to be released or in development?

  • I’ve been skeptical of Virtue’s Last Reward and now I can play it without worry!

    You are the best Mr. Haro!

  • @167 GMFCO311 – I would think you should’ve been able to download the full version, without the Full Game Trial hassle, but if you didn’t have to go through the “purchase” procedures, then you may have had already “bought” the Full Game Trial some time back. Assuming you’ve booted it up by now and it’s been sixty minutes since then, either try booting up the game again or go check the game’s page in the Store. If the former allows you to freely play (and your trophies, if you hadn’t played the disc before, show up on your online profiles), then it should be set. If not, and it shows in that Store as being available for “purchase”, do so (again?), then cancel the download which starts. This should show you as “owning” the full game (double check your Download List, if you wanna be sure it’s on your account), and the downloaded Full Game Trial should act as the full game.

    Hope that wasn’t too unnecessarily wordy.

  • Morgan Haro, you sir, are a liar! There was no early update. I actually expected this because this is the industry standard at this point (promise what you can’t deliver, apologize later) but still, I would’ve expected an update to state that the update wasn’t going to happen today, as opposed to you assuming “Well, they’ll figure it out and just download it tomorrow.” So you know there is actually gamers out here that anticipate the release of content (no brainer) I find it quite insulting that there was no update as to the situation referring to the “early update” I understand it’s not required, it’s just good “PR” coming from someone who’s in college for Business Management. (Please get it together, Sony. This is embarrassing)

  • @+ Monterossa ..hydrophobia is no worse then deus ex really. its more of a tomb raider type of style except inside a ship. its not a good game but ive seen worse. i tolerated to play thru the whole thing and the price makes it very much worth getting

    i find myself having a stack of free ps plus games that ive only played once and still going out and buying piles of disc games instead.

    lbp carting was good but i could buy it for 11 bucks but still happy to have it for free, sleeping dogs was GREAT but the trophys glitched on me and theres no fix so i had to redo everything. saints row is a good update but its not really for me. deus ex would of been ok butt he controls are absolutely horrible

    i havent seen anything else really (for me) with the big updates this month. kinda worrys me now because i know we wont get another big update for a year i think the last one was in feb.2012 and those games stayed in there until like 2013

    glad others enjoy it though. hopefully the new firmware fixes my bricked ps3 so i can actually use it lol

  • @gmfco sometimes games that you own will switch back to trial mode, tomb raider did that to me. just play it until the timer runs out and when it shuts off just restart your ps3 (or sometimes just restart the game) and it will go back to normal. i dunno why but sometimes the trial flicks back on for a hour randomly with games that have timed trials made for them. it must be some sort of err that randomly checks when your online and gets mixed up.

    and i dont think morgan said there will be a update monday, he said there MIGHT be, he didnt say it was going to be there for sure

  • @ 172


    The early update did happen. I already saw the new sales when I last checked as of Monday night 8pm MST!

  • Can you please see if they can add the PS2 Buffy Games or the PS3 versions of the HD Tomb Raider collection
    Legends, Anniversary to go with Underworld.

  • Blah was hoping there would be at least one more decent discount before my Plus runs out since I already realized Sleeping Dogs was bound to be the only worthwhile game. To say the least I won’t be renewing and I’m skipping the PS4 (HATE online gaming anyways) so I have even less reason to. Got a poor deal with PS+ 1 playable game and 2 discounts not happy with it at all. But I gave up hope a long time back.

    I wouldn’t play Hydrophobia or Fat Princess for free much less pay for the displeasure.

  • Great job! This week is huge for the vita, we need to see more of these types of weeks in the future! Keep them coming and dont stop doing what you guys do!

  • you guys should make this the norm…. to update the store late on mondays so when we all get up on tuesday all the content is on the store already …. :) that feeling felt SOOOO good this week :) I hope it continues, think about it!

  • DragonWolf you my friend are crazy!!! These games are free!!! Theyre very good games! and omg THE DISCOUNTS are just amazing!! ….

    ….but Sony …. lol if this continues well eventually have all the vita games! XD hurry and release more (im kidding)

  • now… if only the escape plan dlc was also discounted…. :(

  • Awesome! It seems as though my plan to wait to play Virtue’s last reward has payed off. PS+ always seems to come through with exactly what I want. Thanks guys!

  • LOL wtf?! why are you guys charging 59.99 for Deadpool?! lol its 49.99 at retail …. no ones gonna buy it from you XD …. well maybe out of country people with USA accounts… but seriously its 49.99 not 59.99

  • im tempted to get Tiny Tinas DLC ….. >.> but i know theres gonna be a better bundle later so ill just wait

  • Its been a short time that I’ve come back to the ps plus world and this is by far the best update I’ve seen since I’ve comeback.
    Thanks guys.

  • Could never manage to find Zero Escape anywhere and I was really excited for it, really made my day to see this :)

  • Is Hotline Miami out today?

  • Just an observation Morgan. Is it possible to talk to Capcom about putting Okami HD on the Vita? That would be awesome! Back to today’s update, I am absolutely picking up Virtue’s reward and I am on the fence about Hotline Miami. I’ve seen great reviews for that game. Keep it up Playstation!!

  • Awesome, I literally transferred $40 into my paypal yesterday so I could buy Zero’s Escape.

  • Blackknight00002

    why is there never any good rpg on plus there’s only ben like 2 or 3 games I’ve liked since it came out

  • @166 Got same problem here

    and Why the game is still not free for download even at 25th??? It is still 35$ on the list

  • @166 same as for me,
    haven’t touch my vita since new little king’s story glitches. Hopefully they fix it

  • Is Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake available for PS Vita? I’m not seeing it on the PSN store. I didn’t see it on the website either though…. (

  • @GMFCO311 Yes. I get that sometimes. Turn off the Vita when that happens, turn it back on, then go to the store and check your Downloads List. You should be able to download it from there without a problem.

  • Forget my comment about Fat Princess. I found it in the store online and saw that it’s PSP only. Lame.

  • I’ll buy a vita whenever Persona 4 golden becomes free for ps+ members.

  • Finally PS Plus updated made me to buy Vita. Now i am a proud owner of Vita and already have games for it which i downloaded in past PS plus updates. So much to play on Vita now. Also i am waiting for Batman Blackgate coming to vita this oct. :)

  • how I hope Fat Princess is on the Vita as well!

  • Something weird happened! why did they took away my PS Plus!? I bought a full year since November!!!

  • Sorry to be more specific, I selected Zero Escape and asked me to pay for it, that’s weird
