Sony had a strong presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. So strong that they brought out heavy hitters such as Ellen Page during the Beyond: Two Souls panel and Ashley Johnson, W. Earl Brown, and Troy Baker for The Last of Us panel. Just in case you didn’t know, Comic-Con panels are simply a gathering of talent and producers with fans during the convention. An hour or so is given to the panelist to discuss the game, comic or movie. Sometimes they reveal new footage, and sometimes they also reveal a bunch of other new stuff to the public. Towards the end of each panel, fans are allowed to ask questions.
Omar Kendall, of Superbot Entertainment, revealed Jak and Cole as the latest addition to PlayStation All-Star Battle Royal, while Niel Druckmann, from Naughty Dog, showed us never before seen footage for The Last of Us.
If you have been following our Facebook Page this last week, then you might have already grabbed a code (or more). If not, then here’s your chance. These codes add to your existing account and do stack, so feel free to add them even if you have an active account.
Keep in mind that you must have a credit, debit, or a prepaid card on file before you can claim the code. This is because PS+ is a subscription-based service, and because of that, it also enables automatic renewal on said service after it expires.
Don’t fret, however, as you can cancel the automatic renewal, and you’re also able to remove your credit card information stored on your account. As long as you cancel auto renewal, you won’t get charged a dime. It’s an inconvenience for some, but it’s a requirement by Sony and not us.
I am going to post 4 codes here as a first come first grab type deal, and will then give out 10 more to anyone that leave a comment as to why they need PS Plus. Also over the next few days, till Friday the 27th, I will randomly be posting codes on http://www.facebook.com/PS3Blog.net, as well as here in the comments, and even a few in our chatroom!! So keep a close eye on us, and Good Luck!!
Here are the first 4 codes!!
Yes. I DID miss a couple of weeks, but it was all due to work and the vacation that followed right after. Don’t worry, I won’t try to make a post with everything that was released. I’ll just focus on this week, and you’ll act as if I actually posted all the others and you didn’t miss anything. All good? Great!
We get one retail release, three PSN games, and two games from the PS2 Classics series… and that is it. Well, I lied. One of the PSN games is a digital release of a formerly retail only game. BUT the PS2 Classics series makes a big comeback with not one but TWO releases for you to enjoy, so that makes up for it, right? Oh, almost forgot to mention. One of the PS2 Classics is GTA 3.
Full list of releases, as soon as you click!
When the store updates tomorrow, PS+ subscribers will be able to purchase The Expendables 2 at a 20% discount, as well as have it count towards the PSN Play promo. What else is there for the soon to arrive …
Well here we are a little late this week, we had some scheduling issues, but it’s a good one! We give away a code for a free month of PlayStation Plus so be sure to listen out for that. I’ll be giving away the rest of the codes next week on the podcast as well as other methods which I will announce. In the mean time pay close attention to PS3Blog.net’s Facebook page for more code giveaways from Oly!
WARNING: At 52 minutes into the podcast we go into a 10 minute discussion about The Dark Knight Rises that is spoiler heavy, so if you haven’t seen the film yet stop the podcast there. I give you a heads up when it’s about to happen so just pull the plug. The secret word as well as the giveaway are before this segment of the podcast.
I played Dishonored at E3, and found it to be quite fun. One of the things they pointed out to me was that there are many different methods to face any situation. This video is a great example of that.
In this video, Corvo is detected by the guards at the Boyle Mansion and must find a way to escape. The video showcases three possible routes using Blink, Bend Time and Possession – three of the many supernatural abilities you’ll gain access to as you play through the game.
