THIS IS STUPID.

Anyway, really happy about NGS+. I'd been planning on picking it up eventually, as I have fond memories of the original on the old Xbox and hadn't ever played Black/Sigma or the sequels. Looking forward to getting my ass kicked by this game again.

Sigma 2 was easily my favorite, and the Vita version comes out next month. Got my ass kicked to town in back in Sigma, enjoy the rage and badassery come tomorrow.

We need a game reporter to discuss the reasons behind different EU and US plus games and how it works. I know there's market performance, getting the publisher/developer to agree, possible profit sharing between Sony/Publisher/Developer of free game, does Sony pay a company to add it to Plus, who determines the length it's kept on the IGC, etc. I'd be interested to know everything that goes into setting these up each week.


Set it up on Kickstarter, I'll buy a share for 10 bucks to get this info.

Very cool PS+ addition. I have not played Sigma yet(played Black back in the day though), but I hope its better than Sigma 2. That game is a fucking trainwreck. I have never seen an "upgraded" edition with so many downgrades.

I played NG2 (non-sigma) and felt the same way though. Compared to black it felt about 8 steps backwards. I only suffered through about half the game before I got fed up with it (I stopped after the lake or river part when you need to run across it and avoid mines while fighting a camera that refuses to cooperate.)

Why? The difference in quality is probably just Sony making different deals and every regions personal take on this. EU was always the best region... they had better promotions, unique free avatars, plus many of the free themes were there first. (some are still exclusive to EU) Transversely Japan has always contained the worst plus offering, so clearly they don't put forth a lot of effort. Not a whole lot more to it than this, besides the fact that people constantly bring up the US vs EU debate, which leads to more and more and more and more and yet more hateful comments.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Here's the full PS+ update for this week:

January is almost over, and we have one more Plus update for you, but first let’s reminisce on this month’s offerings, shall we? Plus member freebies included NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, Darksiders, Mega Man 9 and 10, along with Foosball 2012, and we there were some awesome deals with the 13 for ’13 discounts (last day is today). Topping it all off was access to the God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta, and the 12+3 Plus promotion where you can buy one year of Plus and get three extra months at no additional cost; which is active right now.

We’re sending January off by welcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PS Vita, free for Plus members! There are also some amazing PSN gems at fantastic prices that you may have missed. Read on and enjoy the update, which takes effect when the PlayStation Store updates on January 29th.
Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita to purchase, or click here to get instant access via the Sony Entertainment Network online store.

Dang. I was holding off buying NGS+ because I just didn't think I could do it on Vita controls (I'm not nearly as good with these small analog sticks and awkward feel when holding it). But since I platted NGS2 and NG3, I probably should try it out anyway...

You should be able to buy them on the new PSN website


Pardon my ignorance, but you can do that now? How? Because my PS3 is still not letting me on the store and I really want "The Unfinished Swan" badly.

Good week for Vita owners. Garbage week for PS3 owners. Oh well maybe next week will be better. 13 for 13 was enough to keep me busy for a while.


Gatling Gears is pretty good for $2.50. Greed Corp was kind of fun, but it got pretty challenging for me by the end. Still, I'd say it's worth $2.50. So there's still a couple decent deals for PS3.

I wish that Madden was a little bit cheaper. I'd love to get it for around $10, either digital or retail.

At first I did not like the deal knowing EU+ will get sleeping dogs next month, but after watching the gamespot review saying this is one of the best action games of all time I got hyped af :). Can't wait to play this once I beat gravity rush.

EDIT: LBPK is great for $10. I've played the game last year and plenty of people go race in the community levels. There are probably more online players now after that $10 deal. Another thing that is great is that LBP 1 & 2 costumes also works on this one. Lots of garbage tracks made by users, but there are a lot too that are worth trying.

NGS+ is for US+ Jan, while Sleeping Dogs is for EU+ Feb. I don't think we know what US+ is getting for Feb yet, so can't compare just yet.

Just an FYI about the 12+3 promo that is currently active where you get 3 months free of PS+ when buying a full year. It seems as if any activation of a year of PS+ triggers the promotion automatically.

I had G-stop credit to burn after Christmas and had purchased a 1 year membership card a while back in order to re-up my PS+ account. Being as my current 30 day subscription was set to expire in a few days I thought I'd activate it today. Lo and behold, I was given the bonus 3 months after inputting the scratch off code from the 12 month card I purchased over a month ago.

The message indicating that I would by using the promotion triggered as soon as I finished putting it in. About $3.33 per month for PS+? What a great deal! Way to go Sony!:applause:

Be nice to have Ninja Gaiden on the go (as long as I don't throw down the whole system in frustration). I'll cross my fingers for Lumines next month, as well. Although I'm really just hoping to see some PSP game sales.

And since I probably won't be spending any money on sales this week (unless that fishing game for Vita gets a demo and blows me away) I should probably decide some time tonight if I want Hot Shots Golf or not. :-({|=

So, crap, I guess no one ever figured out if LBP Karting digital version works with the disc-based game save? I've waited all week for someone to figure that out before I bought it ;).

I guess I'll be the guinea pig and just buy the damn thing and see what happens...
