PS Plus: Hotline Miami Free for Members

Put on a mask (did I mention they’re all animal heads and that each one has a different benefit?) and ‘take care’ of anyone your answering machine tells you to. Sure, it may sound a little crazy, but that’s part of Hotline Miami’s appeal. This top-down action game requires careful planning to execute the perfect take-downs. Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Hotline Miami for free on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.

There are also loads of spooky titles on sale as part of the Sale of the Dead, including recent sensation The Last of Us and other zombie favorites like Dead Island, Dead Nation, Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare and Telltale’s The Walking Dead episodes.

All of these PS Plus benefits will be available after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, October 22nd.

Hotline Miami (PS Vita & PS3)

Free for PS Plus members, Regular Price: $9.99

Hotline Miami
Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine. Rely on your wits to choreograph your way through seemingly impossible situations as you constantly find yourself outnumbered by vicious enemies.

  • I have long since given up on the IGC part of a PS+ subscription. I am only keeping it for the discounts, at this point.

    I wish that I could purchase SSFIVAE outright at the discounted rate for PS+ subscribers, but I am still awaiting a response to the ticket I submitted, asking that it be deleted from my Download List, so I could be eligible to purchase it outright, rather than only get the right to play it for as long as I maintain my PS+ subscription.

    They DID refund the difference when I got overcharged for Bionic Commando Rearmed, so I have a little bit of hope that they’ll take care of this, too.

  • sales nothing good for vita owner + free game this month full indie :(

  • Wow, I knew I could count on you guys! It will be too hard to resist the Last of Us and Walking Dead for Vita.

    I still wish Capcom would go back and add move support to RE4 HD as they did with the Wii port! That would have madeit the ultimate version.

    Great set of sales this week. I will easily hit the spend $50/get $10 twice over.

  • YES ! ohh i am so excited i been waiting for this day, i finally get to try out Hotline Miami ! ALSO A Question for MORGAN Morgan: have you played Hotline Miami yet ?

  • I was disappointed when I saw that Hotline Miami will be released in IGC.. I just bought it last month.. I suggest that you should make a complete announcement of games that will be put in the IGC for the whole year to avoid things like this.. Plus the IGC in Vita sucks..

  • The Halloween sale looks fantastic– lots of stuff I’m interested in picking up. But most of it falls in week 2, and I just wanted to make sure the $10 for $50 deal goes through the end of the day on the 29th (and doesn’t end at the beginning of the day when the date rolls over onto the 29th). Hoping the week 2 sale stuff will still count towards the deal assuming we make our purchases the day of the store update on Tuesday. Many thanks!!!

  • And another thing, can you please update Vita’s avatars so that we can use all of the PS3 avatars that we’ve bought already? Vita’s avatars are lame

  • Figures when i’m broke as a joke you guys put Last of Us, RE: Revelations, Red Dead ,and Alien Breed on sale…a bunch of games i’ve been wanting ggrrrr…this sux

  • Okay seriously. I get trolled by the feedback button every other week. The “We Want Your Feedback” button should open the poll as well, instead of just opening up the image. OR just make it not a clickable link, either way.

  • Same question as #10 Xer0Signal Why are there different prices?

    Here is an example:

    Plants vs. Zombies PS Vita—$3.75—$7.49—$14.99
    Plants Vs. Zombies Ps Vita—$5.25—$10.49

    Pierre Gravereau did post the correct regular price of $14.99 so I think he may be correct

  • @49 MUSTARD_STINKS: Dead Space series goes on sale the next week, check the other Blog post that just went up about the Halloween sale– there’s a second week with a ton of stuff that week as well.

  • @Kristine Steimer Could you please tell me if I can buy any of these games on sale (and the ones for next week) without worrying any of them appearing in the IGC next month?

  • Absolutely excited about this sale!!! Thanks!

  • REALLY hard to pick between Hotline Miami and the Halloween Sale. This is my favorite sale of the year but I still voted for Hotline Miami this time because it just came out and I’m excited to get it at no cost. But please know that the sale is a homerun.

  • I see a ton of complaints about PS+ and its Vita IGC content. However, I look at my Vita and see Uncharted, Wipeout, Gravity Rush, GTA, Ninja Gaiden Sigma plus, Zen Pinball, Star Wars Pinball, Plants vs. Zombies, Zero Escape, SoulCalibur, Tekken 6, Rayman Origins and a ton of other PSP and PSN games. If that isn’t great games/content/value, I don’t know what is. Don’t get me wrong, there are other titles I’d like to see, but to complain constantly about nothing there I find it crazy.

  • Well I think it’s about time I buy The Last Of Us then :)

    Would anyone recommend RDR Undead Nightmare for $5?

    Thanks Sony!

    • Yeah that’s a good price for TLOU. I really enjoyed Undead Nightmare as well, but I also really enjoyed RDR (and Rockstar’s stuff in general).

  • FINALLY HOTLINE MIAMI ALSO AMAZING ROUND OF SALES :)

  • PlaystationPlus American this horrible with games without expression.PlaystaionPlus Europe is much better

  • Playstation Plus American this horrible with games without expression.Playstaion Plus Europe is much better

  • Oh yes looking forward to try that Hotline Miami game…seems decent….thanks Sony…oh and also great sales…I’m already getting some goodies lol…there are 2 games there that I’ll grab for sure…..let da Halloween come….please more sales next week ha I’m already getting $20 back….$30 wouldn’t be bad.

  • Stinks that I think we miss the second week of sales with the buy $50 deal

  • hmm, gotta love Hotline Miami :D

    The sales aren’t bad too, although I DO think going strictly horror/zombie games wasn’t the wisest. That being said, the sale prices are good, especially the Walking Dead :D if I had a bit more cash, I’d get the season pass and get the other seasons, so I wouldn’t have to borrow my friend’s disc to play the rest of the episodes. A lot of sales are tempting besides those, but my next PSN card’s going on the Kingdoms of Amalur DLC: Teeth of Naros, and Legend of Dead Kel…..unless the Plus team would kindly try to get them free on it ;)

  • Great discounts! I’ll also try Hotline. Good week overall.

  • @29 I was wondering the same thing. I really enjoyed the game (got the Platinum) and would buy the DLC ASAP if it were discounted this week.

  • Hmm would you happen to be the Kristine that helped me with the Bionic Commando issue a few days back? If so thanks for your help my issue got resolved within the day =D

    A few questions please-
    1- Will the PSX and PSP Castlevania games on US PSN also go on sale or is it just HoD?

    2- When will we learn of November’s Plus offerings? Will it be this Friday or next? It would be lame if game someone purchases next week suddenly goes as a Plus freebie for November

    3- To remedy the above post, any chance the ‘get $10 back’ offer can be extended for an extra week until Tuesday 3rd/4th November?

  • You had me at The Last of Us.

  • It’s pretty hard to keep a straight face when week after week I see NA PS+ customers complain about EU getting better deals and then the EU blog is filled with reverse complaints about how they are getting the run around. As far as buying a game and then seeing it come to PS+ soon after, that no doubt is a bummer. However before a new month begins a list of all content that will be marked down to free during that month is listed, it’s not realistic to ask for more details than this because plans for the month after are still being hashed out =).

    I guess I don’t see the Vita drought like most of you because I play US and JP titles (other another account but on the same Vita) but to say that Sony is *only* focused on the PS4 is absurd (yes, it is their *main* focus! but as a next-generation console/new product launch, I would expect it to be). There are really a lot of great Japanese Vita games both in-production and released outside of our territory (in the latter case, I really encourage people to vocalize their want for the product to the developers and more importantly the publishers; a small push can make a sea change that wouldn’t have otherwise occurred).

  • Also these sales are amazing! keep it up :)

  • WOW… WOW…. Excellent sale… I was waiting for it… My wallet will be empty very soon…
    Taking for sure:
    Dead Island GOTY
    Red Dead Redemption Pack
    And I was waiting for a sale on The Walking Dead 400 days…

    Also I have an eye on The Last of Us or Resident Evil Revelations

    And for next week DMC and may be Metro Last Night.

    Does anyone know if the “get 10 for every 50” promo last until the end of the 29th after the store is updated with the new sales?

  • (1) If your still waiting on Crash & Spyro on Vita support, SHAME ON YOU. 2 games in a 100+ game library is no reason to constantly bother the community with these long wasteful posts. Their not coming, MOVE ON.

    (2) Dj_Tomato, Sony is not obligated to give YOU every Vita game free with ps+, furthermore, there are hundreds of companies that do not discount their merchandise this early and this often, take a long hard look at Nintendo 1st party games, then come back to me on game discounts. These are some great sales, they may not be all for you, but to playstation gamer’s these are welcomed sales.

    I know your fishing for some attention, so here it goes. Take your $60, spit on it a couple times, roll it up into a nice moist ball, open your window and do your best Mariano imitation. That’s exactly how the community feels about your precious $60.

    Keep on Gaming.

  • Looks like I’ll be spending some of my PSN wallet on those sale games. Never did get around to picking up 400 Days, so that’s an instant buy. Love sales like this.

  • @49 Dead space sale next week.

    @55 – So you want them to not make a bit more sales before IGC?? This isn’t the first time it happened, and it will not be the last.

  • Hotline Miami is one of my favorite PSN games, and is something incredibly special. While screenshots and gameplay may look fairly bland, the game is anything but. I recommend that everyone gives it a chance (especially considering that it’s ‘free’).

    The story, art style, music and gameplay blend together masterfully and create a great experience that is always rewarding.

  • @ DJ_Tomato & carlpain

    while I understand your frustrations at the lack of Vita content, keep in mind it’s essentially a next-gen PSP with much higher capabilities then any previous PSP….that’s because like the PSP was meant to work best with PS3, Vita is meant to work best with PS4. yes, PS4 is their priority right now, as it’s approaching launch.

    But to let your PS+ sub expire wouldn’t be intelligent if you pan to purchase a PS4 and to play online…remember PS+ is a neccessity to play online with PS4….so if you don’t want to garbage up the online community, I’m cool with that too ;)

  • Hi Kristine, can you please confirm us if the content that we buy in 10/29 apply for the “buy $50 get $10” deal? Even if the store updates late?

  • Walking Dead Season Pass for $2.99? Yes, please. I see a lot of love for Hotline Miami, but it looks like Sega Genesis-era top-down shooter, and I’m just not interested in that at all. Will take advantage of the sales, though.

  • Just to be clear, The Walking Dead season pass (for PS3 and Vita) is for episodes 1-5 correct? 400 days must be purchased separately? Thanks for the sales!

  • Uncharted 1 & 2 instant game collection please.

  • hi guys this is my first post
    just asking about the 10$ promotion should we wait until 8 november to get it or can we get it before that
    also is there going to be a 3 extra month of ps plus if you buy a year soon.

  • You know. If it wasn’t such an amazing game, I would be disappointed that Walking Dead 400 Days is on sale this week despite me having just purchased it last week.

    That Vita price is tempting though.

  • Leave one great sale and start another. freaking great i said sarcastically for my wallet

  • gamestop
    psplus cards for 30 bucks a pop
    black friday

  • like the sales this week Resident Evil 4 HD and Plants Vs. Zombies

  • Looks like I’ll finally be buying The Walking Dead, I was hoping to buy it for my Vita, but the discounted PS3 price is the cheaper option. I mean seriously $5.43 for the Season Pass + 400th Day, while the Vita version is $9.79, somebody should make sales prices equivalent between platforms if it’s the same game.

  • I’m going to double dip on The Walking Dead. Got the PC version last year but I’d love to replay it on dat OLED and I never got to play 400 Days. Can’t wait for Hotline Miami as well :D I hope you guys add Super StarDust Delta to the IGC when Resogun does. Been waiting for a sale or igc on that ever since I got a Vita back in March.

  • Hotline Miami!!! Yes, thank you!!

  • @Kristine Steimer regarding your reply to post #10.

    Does the Plus team need to TRIPLE check all the prices?

    Look at the store https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/en-us/cid=UP0017-PCSE00064_00-PLANTSVSZOMBIES0 it shows the regular price as $14.99 not $10.49

    So when did this game get a price drop and will the PSN team be refunding everyone that has been paying $14.99?

  • Seriously, Hotline Miami is a great game. I loved playing it this summer! Any that is knocking it without playing is really just arguing for no reason. The game received an 8.8 score from IGN and has a Metacritic score of 85. The gameplay is addicting.

    I really appreciate the sales. I’ll be picking up Dead Island. I’ve heard it is fun, but never jumped on it because I figured it would eventually reach this price point some time around a Halloween sale. Glad it happened!

  • laughs at the people who complain about Playstation plus. I love it Hotline Miami and The walking dead. All I need now is a Dragon’s crown sale and my vita is set

  • @JMBlakk Both Dragon’s Crowns (the ps3 and vita ones) are currently $10 cheaper, I think that does qualify as a sale.

    Looking forward to playing some Hotline Miami, the guys on the Blogcast have been singing its praises for quite some time.

    Oh and really good sales here. Thanks Plus team!
