It was a year ago when Sony announced that PlayStation Plus would have something called the Instant Game Collection. That service would see a monthly rotation of PlayStation 3 games (later expanded to include PlayStation Vita games too) and – in addition – a trio of games that would remain the same throughout the year.
For the last twelve months, in among all the monthly titles that came and went (and there has been some real crackers), Sony offered European PlayStation Plus subscribers the brilliant LittleBigPlanet 2, the expansive inFamous 2 and near-future racer MotorStorm Apocalypse. Soon, those titles will be replaced with another set of games that’ll stay for a year.
So, what are we getting in their place? Well, how about the rather splendid Nathan Drake in Uncharted 3 (well, the single player at least)? And how about some LittlebigPlanet Karting, from the guys that made ModNation Racers featuring everyone’s favourite burlap mascot. And finally, you’ll be able to grab XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a neat third party offering.
Remember to grab LBP2, inFamous 2 and MotorStorm before the 12th of June, as that’s when the games will swap over.
