Here’s Exactly What a Playstation Plus Subscription Will Get You At This Exact Moment in North America
PS3 firmware v3.40 is live, and with it comes the Playstation Plus. But until now, we didn’t know exactly what we’d get out of it in North America, as we were only able to rely on what the European Playstation blog had to say that region would get. Well now that it’s ready to go, there’s no more hiding. Hit jump for the goods.
NOTE: In case you were wondering, the European Plus options are as described previously.
No digital LittleBigPlanet for us, of course. Also, rather than two free Minis, we only get one. Here’s the list of Playstation Plus perks in bullet form. All free items are tied to your Plus subscription unless otherwise noted. Discounted items are yours forever.
- WipeOut HD (free and not tied to your Plus subscription)
- 60-minute Infamous trial
- Age of Zombies Mini (free)
- Rally Cross PSOne Classic (free)
- Warhawk Fallen Star Pack (free)
- PS3 Collision Theme (free)
- Fat Princess: Fat Roles Expansion ($3.99 rather than $4.99)
- Two Fat Princess PSN ID avatars (free)
50% off titles from Midway Games
- Gauntlet 2 ($2.50)
- Mortal Kombat II ($2.50)
- Rampage ($2.50)
- Rampart ($2.50)
20% off titles from TikGames and Creat Studios (any DLC for these titles is free as well)
- Cuboid ($7.99)
- Hamsterball ($7.99)
- Interpol: The Trail of Dr.Chaos ($7.99)
- Magi Orbz ($7.99)
- Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom ($7.99)
- Smash Cars ($11.99)
- Wakeboarding HD ($11.99)
There you go. Now you know what you’re getting into with this Playstation Plus thing in North America. I really just wish we had gotten Destruction Derby instead of Rally Cross. And I’d rather we got the Savage Moon trial instead of Infamous, because I actually haven’t played that. Oh well. I can’t say were were screwed, though, because a quick glance at the European store shows it has very little in the way of discounted games.
