  1. Whoa, i am so crying in the corner.


  3. An excellent month. Even the anti-plussers have to admit it (even if they don’t want to lol)
    And as for the Infamous 2 beta-I expect my code on the 12th :P
    Hope I get it. Looks good.

    • yeah its ok but theres only a few thing that interest me, good to see a new game for free

      • i am/have been till now. This is the kind of stuff they should be doing and I will be signing up for the 15 months today, well done Sony, you managed to get me at last

    • I think the only problem is that I simply don’t play many games at all, at least not enough to warrant the subscription charge.

      If I did however, I’d love it like a fat kid loves cake.

      • would you stuff it in your mouth like there’s no tomorrow? then leave all the chocolate around your mush for later?

    • infamous 2 beta idc about because i won it and should be here this week woohoo

  4. Pretty damn good! :D

    Hope I get in the InFamous 2 beta, love the first although I never got round to getting the platinum, which may count against me by the sound of things. Suppose it’s a fair way of doing it though

    • my trophy list is empty :( *cries

      Ah well, full game is what I prefer

      • DO you reckon the criteria is that you need to be one of the 5 people in the world who actually ground out that stupid blast shards trophy? If so, I’m out.

    • hmmm I wonder what trophies you need to have unlocked? think my game was 80ish% complete, but then I only have the 3 month sub…bet you need to have a 100% complete and be a 12 month subscriber…hope not though, I’m loving the Socom beta (though it was pointless trying to give any pointers to the devs on their forum due to all the muppets moaning about Socom 2 HD)

      at least InFAMOUS 2 Beta shouldn’t have that problem…I hope

      • i better get into that beta cuz i spent ages looking for those stupid ass blast shards and i have the platinum on that game!!!

  5. *phone rings*
    hello PS+, I’ve missed you…. please come back I have money now, ok I’ll get the yearly subscribcition, huh? no bonus… oh damnit!.. ah well its nothing, see you soon
    *drops phone and runs to gamestop

    • No bonus? They’re bringing back the 3 months extra bonus for this month. AND you can buy that even as a current subscriber and it’ll simply add onto what you’ve already got going.

      • That’s good. I may just well top up my subscription.

      • Awe sweet, thanks I have been meaning to get a new subscrition for since my first went out.

  6. the killzone 3 map pack for zero pounds is welcome

  7. Booyakasha

    • Boomshakalaka

    • bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp
      rav-a-lav-a-ding-dong. ?

  8. There’s quite a lot there, but still no betas that would interest me.

  9. This is all totally brilliant. PS+ has really really picked up pace in the new year. :D

  10. Best Month Ever. PS+ is the best thing I have signed up. I cannot effing wait to download them all but must clear some memory space xD lol

    • same my 320gig is nearly done think I’m going to get a 620gig now.

    • Damn right – PS+ is the best investment around, My HDD is packed with awesome freebies…PACKED I tells ya!

    • Me too, great month for me plus members.
