It's a smart move to make Borderlands free this month. Considering Borderlands 2 comes out this month, the people who never played it might be convinced to make the plunge on borderlands 2 even if they weren't expecting to.

so is Borderlands just the base game with no DLC included right? I was planning on getting the GOTY version soon in preparation for Borderlands 2 but PS+ just save me some money :)

You would rather have the vanilla version for free than the GOTY version for $10?

Sweet, Tomba will be available on day 1 when the Vita gets PS1 support tomorrow.

Some good stuff for Plus coming up, even if I have most of it. I highly recommend Greed Corp for anyone who hasn't tried it. It is a super fun (light) strategy game and for $2.50 you can't go wrong.

The DLC is worth that price alone. It adds a ton to an already lengthy game, and not just new zones either, new everything! I also bought it on the PSN sale last year and have no regrets, just sad that it's taking up a free game slot for plus member that already own it like myself. :)

Ditto, and it was actually $15. I only own two digital copies of full games, and Borderlands is one of them. :-(

Spelunker HD is new at least and I'm excited about that. I own everything else (except that overpriced Move game) on Xbox.

Also, I was hoping for a few bucks off of Tony Hawk, but it will sell at full price so I can understand why they didn't want to discount it.

Just a heads-up, people have reported online connectivity issues between disc-based and digital based versions of Borderlands -- especially when playing the DLC. I managed to get in about 20 minutes of playing time with a friend who had the digital DLC version of Dr. Ned when I played with the disc-based DLC before both of us froze (and it was pretty laggy the whole time). I should note that this was with the :360: and not the :ps3: console, but chances are they have the same issue.

http://blog.us.plays...-september-4th/

Here's the full post with the PS+ update for the next two weeks:

It’s been quite a week for PlayStation Plus since the last time we chatted. Earlier we announced that Plus will be coming to PS Vita and that it will also be getting an upgrade in Online Game Save storage (from 150MB to a beefy 1GB). We’ll have news for you on when these will hit and what these updates will be all about soon enough; until then, let’s take a look at some of the great discounts coming in at the end of the month, and let’s welcome PS3 Full Game Borderlands into the Instant Game Collection in September! It’s a lot to take in so without further ado, let’s get into the preview for the August 28th and September 4th PlayStation Plus updates.

August 28th PlayStation Plus Update

Lights, Camera, Party!

50% off for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $29.99, PS Plus Price: $15.00)


The essential party game for PlayStation Move owners is getting a giant discount for PlayStation Plus members. Fast-paced, funny, quick to set up, social and full of a variety of mini-games, challenges and Trophies, you’ll find an incredibly fun experience each time you play. Only one PS Move controller is needed to get everyone in on Lights, Camera, Party!

Space Channel 5: Part 2

40% off the Sale Price for PlayStation Plus Members (PSN Sale Price: $4.99, PS Plus Price: $2.99)


If you have yet to experience a Space Channel game, this is a great chance to do it. Space Channel Part 2 was released last year on PSN and took the remarkable rhythmic gameplay and charming story of the original Space Channel, and improved upon it in every way. It’s a steal at $2.99 for Plus members.

Spelunker HD (Game and DLC)

50% discount for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $5.00)


A widely considered classic is remade in HD and is now on the ultra cheap for Plus members. Explore underground worlds, collect treasures, and fend off enemies with Spelunker HD’s addictive gameplay rooted in old-school gaming concepts. While you’ll find the game on sale at $5.00, you can also snag the game’s all new DLC hitting with this update for about $1 a pop. You’ll find all new areas and stages to download if you’re craving more of that Spelunker HD action.

September 4th PlayStation Plus Update

Borderlands

Free for PlayStation Plus Members; Add-Ons 50% off


Just in time to get set for the release of Borderlands 2 on September 18th, we’re happy to deliver the original Borderlands free for Plus members! Visit the wasteland planet of Pandora and embark on a quest for the elusive Vault. Featuring extensive co-op integration that seamlessly blends the single-player and multiplayer experiences, Borderlands allows players to freely join or leave each other’s games at any time for collaborative mayhem or the freedom to choose to play in full single-player mode to experience the world on their own. Borderlands also includes a groundbreaking weapon generation system that offers a near infinite variety of weapons to the player. Borderlands combines these features with addictive non-stop action to form a breakthrough experience that challenges the conventions of modern shooters and RPGs. We’re also throwing a sale on all the remarkable Add-Ons for Borderlands as well for 2 weeks. They will be all 50% off, including amazing expansions like Zombie Island and New Revolution. Or grab the Add-On Bundle for 50% off as well.

Daytona USA

40% off the Sale Price for PlayStation Plus Members (PSN Price: $4.99, PS Plus Price: $2.99)


Get your rolling start ready and pick up SEGA’s Daytona USA for only $2.99. The original game, redone in HD delivers the classic racing experience, and brings in new features including online play.

Greed Corp

50% off the Sale Price for PlayStation Plus Members (PSN Sale Price: $4.99, PS Plus Price: $2.50)


Greed Corp is an award winning, innovative turn-based strategy game, situated in a world inspired by the industrial revolutions and their destructive effects on the environment. Find the delicate balance between harvesting the land for resources and preserving it to stay alive. Will you defend your territory or sacrifice it to keep it out of enemy hands?

That’s it for now; check the PlayStation Store Updates for more details as they come, and we’ll see you again soon to deliver more PlayStation Plus goodness through September and beyond. See you in the comments!

At 50% off, the add-ons will make it $20 total compared to the $15 that they charged for the GOTY bundle last year.

The Walking Dead Episodes 1/2 are going to be expiring with next week's update, so that's what Borderlands will be replacing.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Well the hope that we would be getting any more episodes seems dim now with it lasting 1 month. Maybe I am wrong but it would seem it will only be Episodes 1 + 2 to get people roped into buying the last 3.

That would be the most likely marketing angle. It's a free taste to get you hooked.

I shouldn't be complaining about PS+ which, at least for me, has been more than worth it so far, but is there anyone who has been interested in Borderlands that hasn't gotten it by this point?

Am I remembering incorrectly or was there no PS3 games for PLUS in August? All we got was 2 eps of walking dead and Outland and Bloodrayne, all PSN titles? Were we 'supposed' to get a PS3 game or no, I can't remember what they promised.

I did start playing Outland and it's pretty fun, great design style. Haven't gotten into Bloodrayne yet, it seems a lot like Shank though.

No, we weren't "supposed" to get one. They didn't promise anything one way or another.

I feel the same way. If you don't own Borderlands by now, you don't want it. Disappointed this month.

On the other hand, there were months where all we got was a single PSN game that had previously been on sale like Mushroom Wars, so this is still better. But I wish that they'd bring back some of their other freebies like minis, PSOne Classics and free dynamic themes. Those have been few and far between since the "Instant Game Collection" was announced at E3.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is Spelunker in any way related to Spelunky on 360?

wiki says While not directly linked, the game Spelunky is an obvious nod with similar elements of game play, and mechanics.

Nice, I never played Space Channel 5 but heard good things, so I'll be picking up Space Channel 5: Part 2 for sure. Might as well grab Daytona USA too at that price.

Heads up if want to try Borderlands online. The community is filled with hackers, and while you may think it shouldn't affect you, it did to me. For some reason now my save file/main character quest log is all fucked up. Luckily the 2nd/3rd playthrough quest log was still intact.
