Heads-Up PlayStation Plus Update – 7th March 2012


One and all, I hope you all enjoyed your copies of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 last week to round off what was a pretty awesome month for PlayStation Plus.

I remember when I first started at SCEE and those two PS one Classics were among the most requested – it was great to be able to bring you long-awaited content at no cost when it launched.

In fact, we enjoyed that so much, let’s do it again.

A big thank you is in order to the fine people of Atlus, since Trine 2 is coming this Wednesday with a 30% launch discount for the first two weeks by way of apology for the delay in SCEE. Even better though, if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, it comes with a cool 100% discount, making Trine 2 our PlayStation Plus Game of the Month.


I hope you’re all excited for the release of ThatGameCompany’s Journey on March 14th in SCEE – the game has been receiving some amazing reviews and truly is a masterpiece. But why wait to find out? This Wednesday, our PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get their hands on Journey one whole week before everyone else and grab yourselves a free Plus-Exclusive Dynamic Theme.

And there’s more. We’re providing you with another full digital title this month at no extra cost – Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus HD (part of the Sly Trilogy) – Sly’s first outing on PS2 given the HD Classics treatment for your pleasure. You’ll be sneaking around the world, stealing back your family heirlooms from other master criminals and it’s a great example of classic action-platforming at its finest.

Of course new minis as well, Farm Frenzy 2 and The Impossible Game are available for you at no cost, alongside Jet Rider from the PS one Classics range.

We have new themes, including a very cool sketchbook theme to celebrate the launch of Jak & Daxter HD Trilogy, and two avatars for you featuring Naughty Dog’s dynamic duo.

Discounts this month include Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension and Toy Story 3 and additional launch discounts across the month, including Shoot Many Robots! from Ubisoft and additional discounts on sale content going forward.

More later in the month, we’ve not forgotten those additional games that are currently available in SCEA, so watch out for those to be slotted in over the next few weeks, as well as a selection of additional Full Game Trials.

In the meantime, you have lots of play from this Wednesday so get to it!
