May PS Plus Content Revealed

The EU blog has just posted up this month’s goody bag for all the PS+ subscribers, and it’s a fine month indeed. I count 9 free PS3 games along with a spattering of PS2 classics and minis.

Our very own Tuffcub did a bit of nifty calculation and worked out that it’s over £80 of free stuff. Not bad for £40 a year huh.

From May 2nd

  1. Can’t fault PS+ at all – it makes my Xbox Live subscription look like shockingly poor value.

    • To be fair, you can’t really compare the two – Plus is all about content, whereas Live is pretty much just about access to the online service.

      • True – though psychologically I think I’m paying a similar fee and getting all the content as well as access to online play from Playstation, as opposed to purely online access from Xbox. I’ve had my Xbox for 7 years, and my PS3 for two months, but it’s been a pleasant change in the perceived value of service.

  2. @kjkg. The launch discount for Datura will be 20%. (source: eublog)

  3. Cracking Month for plus subscribers !

  4. Great update, i alreaady have Ricochet HD and Magic Orbz which are both great games but there’s still plenty to make my subscription worthwhile.

  5. man that is generous guess a lot of the whiners do not own it.

    • Exactly my thoughts.
      PS+ could fix world hunger and they’d still complain. :P

      • Don’t be silly.
        I’m a plus’er but I just happen to own most of the content already.
        Last month was awesome though – I think I’m just being spoiled!

  6. Examination period is ruined!

  7. Blimey, what a great month. I do love being a plus subscriber.

  8. Meh. Even for free, I’m just not interested in most of that stuff.

    Unless they open it up and offer set discounts store-wide, or introduce some absolutely must-have, can’t-live-without-it features, I don’t think I’ll ever subscribe to Plus.

    • Have you not been interested in any of the previous titles?

      Perhaps I’m playing devil’s advocate but whilst this month is less impressive for myself, some of the stuff previously released is excellent. I also love the ability to cloud save although I still prefer not to do this automatically & I do relish the early access stuff.

      Overall, I do think PSN+ is a worthy product – just not consistent!

      • To be frank, the cloud is the only reason i even have a slight interest in plus.

        Not interested enough to drop £40 on it though.

      • It is very handy but I do object to the 24 hour rule for some titles. Otherwise it’d be perfect for passing saves between the 2 machines when the S.O. wants/relinquishes the bigger TV!

  9. Was gonna get Max Payne for my iPad.. Now I won’t :)

  10. that’s quite a haul.

    my hard drive is going to hate me. ^_^
