Certainly decent enough to consider trying to setup a EU profile on a US console and grab PS+ for a year. Maybe get some nice double plat stacking too.


How would you get stacking platinums? Don't you have to use different accounts to have both EU and US PS Plus at the same time? If not, I am intrigued. Also, even if you can use the same account, I don't see how you could get a second platinum just because you got it EU instead of US. Maybe I am reading too much into your comment and you are just saying you could have a platinum for each user ID.

Well the original was just Decade Duels but this one and the xbox one has Plus at the end. Like Dwilla said, there are more dlc cards and I think more rule changes.

All I can say is that if you are not good at this card game, the beginning is really rough on you. I don't really get the rules but my first opponent summoned like 3 monsters every turn and just destroyed me.


I played competitive Yugioh from Jan. 2003-Aug. 2005 but yeah I had to get used to the rules now and try to pause the game when I can to figure out what the AI was doing at times. Can't count how many times I dashboarded to be able to beat the final bosses.

Unless there was another recent EU 30-day trial, doesn't it expire on March 1st? The one that was for France.


Yes, that one does expire March 1. I got another code from Facebook that doesn't have an expiration date, so as far as I know it's still good. The France one is the one I used this month to check out Sleeping Dogs (awesome) and F1 Race Stars (awful).

Quick question for you - if you got multiple EU 30-day trial codes, can you apply them after your current PS+ subscription ends? As I understand you can't use the 30-day codes if you are currently a subscriber, but can I theoretically use one code each month after my subscription ends?


My assumption was that you can't use more than 1 trial per account. Maybe someone else knows more on this than me. What I was going to do was just create a new EU account every time I had a working 1 month trial code to use and they have something I want. Kind of a pain in the ass, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. You just have to play the games right away, because you're going to lose access to them in a month.

Not sure if someone mentioned it, but they also updated Ratchet and Clank FFA in EU. Apparently they're getting both the upcoming Ratchet game (same as US) and a voucher code for Motorstorm RC. Between that and their month of plus... I really hope US brings something good. I normally don't mind this stuff, but it's seriously getting too vast to ignore.

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.

Thanks Admiralvic for reminding me about this. I need to play FFA so I can get the offer for the US.

I believe the offer is linked to disc benefits (like the Vita version is) and won't be useable till the Vita version is out. Not sure sure how they're doing it on EU (since they're sending the Motorstorm RC voucher to people), but I doubt they're just going to give it to anyone that plays the game.

Maybe u get Motorstorm if u purchase it on the psn store?

update he says

The way we calculate who is eligible is by tracking who’s played the PS3 version of Q&C: QForce online. We’ll be doing another data collection for R&C: Gladiator, and at that stage we’ll work out who’s been online since we distributed MotorStorm RC so you will receive both.
Thanks,
Ross

Where does it say they're getting Deadlocked? From what I could tell all they're getting is Motorstorm RC.

EDIT: Oh, apparently it's called Gladiator over there. My bad, that threw me off.

I guess life just isn't fair sometimes, huh guys?

I didn't know if you needed to have played the game so it's linked with your account and they knew about the early adopters. Have you heard how Sony is determining this? I know the Vita version was delayed just wanted to make sure not to miss Deadlocked.

Wait how exactly does this work. I know it was originally supposed to come with a Vita Cross Buy FFA copy. But since they are now including both additions (im assuming you mean Deadlocked and Vita FFA) does this mean I can still go buy a new copy today and receive both the extras? Or did the game have to be purchased close to release. I always meant to get this game but had been waiting since Im mainly interested in the vita copy.

This PS+ thing is great, except that it does make me think twice about buying games, for "fear" that they'll later show up for "free". Seems like there's some negatives in this for Sony. It might sell hardware, but perhaps limits game sales to AAA titles that are less likely to show up on PS+.

Thanks for the reminder - went a head and bought the full price version of FFA from the store. Usually wouldn't do that, but with both a Vita version of FFA + Deadlocked included later on it seems like an ok deal at worst (guessing Deadlocked is going to go for $10 regular price).

Reality already beat me to it, but the process of playing games from other regions on your Vita is a pain in the ass, and I don't believe it's possible at all to play games from other regions on the Vita using a US account.

Maybe they'll churn one out today and discuss the PS4, but more than likely they've all been busy with the PS4 event and won't do one this week.

So the Vita versions are the ones being free? I was just assuming it was the PS3 versions.
