During Monday’s Sony Press Conference at E3 2012, a lot of facts and figures were thrown around: something along the lines of 80 percent of all PlayStation 3 consoles and PS Vitas are connected to the Internet worldwide, there are over 1,500 unique titles available for download currently on PSN, and it’s only going to get better as the years get longer.
But what does that really mean for the consumer? President and overall “big boss” at SECA, Jack Tretton, made mention that Sony would make it worth everyone’s while with several free, full-length retail titles. The catch is, it’s all for those who are with the PlayStation Plus program — but that’s a catch that’s more than worth the membership.
For those who haven’t signed up yet, paying for a membership (three month and yearly subscriptions are offered) will allow access to twelve free games, among which are AAA titles such as inFamous 2, Little Big Planet 2, Saints Row 2, and more. Take a look at the list to see what’s available, and check if you’ll need to make room on your PlayStation 3′s hard drive.
- Virtua Fighter 5
- inFAMOUS 2
- LittleBigPlanet 2
- Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
- Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
- Just Cause 2
- Saints Row 2
- Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
- Hard Corp: Uprising
- Choplifter HD
- Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone
- Sideway NY
That batch of games is worth nearly $300 in sheer gaming glory, and with a back-catalog of titles for PS Plus members to peruse through, there is more than enough to keep gamers satisfied. If the staff at Game Rant have any say, inFamous 2 made an electric splash when it it was released, while LittleBigPlanet 2 was just a sack full of fun. Those two alone are enough to pay for a year’s membership ($49.99), let alone your time and affection.
