PlayStation Plus: Where’ve You BEEN All My Life?


Do you have a PS3?
Do you like games?
Do you want to play more games for game research purposes, pure entertainment purposes or both?


…obviously. It’s a PS3.

What is, however, particularly cool is their PlayStation Plus subscription service. You’re probably aware of this already, but if, like me, you needed someone else to tell you what it is and why you need it (thanks Matt!), allow me to describe it:

You pay a yearly subscription of £29.99. Whilst you’re subscribed, you can get the following* full games for free :

  • BioShock 2
  • Guardians of Middle-Earth
  • Mortal Combat
  • Knytt Underground
  • Big Sky Infinity
  • Limbo
  • Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
  • Cubixx HD
  • LittleBigPlanet 2
  • MotorStorm Apocalypse
  • Infamous 2

When taking into account the upfront cost, that’s an average of £2.73 per game.

Oh and there are lots of other free bits and pieces, plus exclusive trials and lots of discounts too. All for £29.99.

Why the hell had I not signed up to this before??

Well, I have now, and it’s going to be invaluable to have free (well, at no additional cost) access to a whole raft of games to test and enjoy, which will of course inform my own game development activities in future. Plus allow me to excuse entire evenings of battling Big Sisters as “research”.



* At present. The list alters over time, mind.
