    I grabbed Gotham City Impostors, don’t know if anyone still playing that

  2. #2 by hobbes on July 4th, 2012 [ 30466 Points ]

    hoping the ps3 games are good, thus far i think the EU has been getting better games.

  3. #3 by premiersoupir on July 4th, 2012 [ 17020 Points ]

    Anyone here play Imposters? I snagged it as well, but I’m not sure when I’ll get around to messing with it. If it’s awesome, though, I’ll certainly give it a go sooner rather than later!

    Also, is this really July content? Didn’t we get most of these free titles back in late May or early June? The only ones that were new to me are Imposters, the tank game, and Pac-man. Or maybe that’s what @EdEN explains in his post, but I don’t totally follow the rotation method that he describes.

    @premiersoupir: Indeed. With the changes to PS+, we will ALWAYS have 12 free games to choose from (hence the “Instant Collection” tagline), but 3 games will be taken out of the list every month, and 3 new ones will be added. Could be PSN games, could be retail PS3 games, but that way anyone can jump in and have up to 12 free games in an instant. This month I’m only getting Gotham Impostors since I already own the other two, but I’m not complaining. As I’ve mentioned before, year 1 of PS+ was worth if for me on day 1 since I got a LOT of content for my $50, and everything after that was indeed free. With year 2, the Instant Collection has given me more than enough for my $50. I’ll definitely renew in March 2013!

    pretty sure i read on the official playstation blog that this is just for the first half of July and there will be more for the 2nd half

  6. #6 by EdEN on July 4th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    @Kane112: The 2nd update for the month will be for discounts, a Beta, avatars and themes. The free games are the 3 mentioned (which went live yesterday). Things COULD change in July due to how users react to this, but no way of telling since one day Sony is all “Instant game collection” and, on the next, there is no news about The Last Guardian.

  7. #7 by Oly on July 4th, 2012 [ 132350 Points ]

    If we download the free games, and they are one of the three that leaves that month, do we get to keep playing it for free? We do right?

  8. #8 by EdEN on July 4th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    @Oly: As long as your PS+ is still “on”, you get to play ALL games you’ve downloaded. So, for example, Virtua Fighter 5 was taken out but, since I downloaded it before it was taken out of the list, it is on my downloads list, and I can download and play it whenever I want.

    I just need Sony to do a “Buy a year of PS+, get 3 months for free” promo so I can renew my sub.

  9. #9 by Kane112 on July 4th, 2012 [ 34232 Points ]

    waited for that as well EdEN but didnt come in time had to renew with no promo

  10. #10 by Pai do mercado on July 4th, 2012 [ 2376 Points ]

    Sincerely I expected more games 12 free LOL
    Thinking better the last month paid double my $ 50 annual subscription, we had two good options like Infamous, LBP2, Just Cause 2 …
    This month at least I had hoped Motorstorm as the Euro in June.
    As I have Renegade OPS, I was happy to have received FREE Pac Man, very addictive
    I cheer for next month terms Retails more games via download
    I just hope I still see in PSN+ NBA 2K12 , Madden 12, Uncharted 1, GOW Collection, SLY 2 and:03, ICO ….

  11. #11 by tedrabear on July 4th, 2012 [ 146 Points ]

    Best spent 50$ ever. Just a question for those int the know, is it possable to update your PS+ before it runs out so that when one subscription ends the next carries straght on?

  12. #12 by EdEN on July 4th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    Yes, you can actually “add” (so to speak) to your current sub, and the extra months will be added. I renewed my second year with 3 months left from my first one. Got 30 months for $100 hehehe.

  13. #13 by Darklurkr23 on July 4th, 2012 [ 23156 Points ]

    Man this service is so amazing. I wish more of the people I knew where on Playstation instead of Xbox :(

  14. #14 by EdEN on July 4th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    You need new friends hehehe.

  15. #15 by chronorayven on July 4th, 2012 [ 23094 Points ]

    2 years later and happy I’m a PS+ member still .. now I just need time to finish 2 years worth of games from PS+ :)

  16. #16 by EdEN on July 4th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    Tell me about it! I had done the math to work on my PS+ backlog… how DARE Sony give me 12 free games, on a single day? Hahaha.

  17. #17 by xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux on July 4th, 2012 [ 2160 Points ]

    What EU getting? and um yea Id prefer some other titles. I already beat infamous2/ plat, and war 40k sucked, and um lbp2 is not my style. Gotham City is great so is pac man. But i mean come on these are some old titles in a sense. We need some actual meat in this.

  18. #18 by EdEN on July 4th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    EU is getting Deus Ex.

  19. #19 by Cheeto on July 5th, 2012 [ 29099 Points ]

    There are some serious issues with Gotham Impostors. I can’t access training mode, The game freezes at certain points and when ever I exit the game my PS3 shuts down and restarts … I think I had the same issue during the beta, though it would be fixed by now …

  20. #20 by hobbes on July 5th, 2012 [ 30466 Points ]

    @eden you sure about these being the only 3 free games, the comments on the blog made it seem like we maybe getting more later in the month.

  21. #21 by hobbes on July 5th, 2012 [ 30466 Points ]

    And finally playing lara croft guardian of light, amazing game.. renegade opps is great, gothom city… meehhh

  22. #22 by Pai do mercado on July 5th, 2012 [ 2376 Points ]

    @hobbes

    I also realized that new games are still released by Sony during the month in PSN+, seeing the answers of Morgan Haro, on the blog.
    At the same time think it was only a slight impression, and that the contents will be even this.
    It would be nice if we had surprises, and games were placed for download later this month.
    As in EURO, they will always release all this month on PSN + at once, and there was just Deus EX, I believe that this will only.
    As I said in my earlier comment, already good month.
    If we have more content better

  23. #23 by EdEN on July 5th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    @hobbes: The comment says “But at this time, the Instant Game Collection update here is what’s slated to be updated for the month of July”. Which means “these are the free games you’re getting. The other update? Thems, Avatars, discounts and maaaaaybe some free DLC.”

  24. #24 by wolfkin on July 5th, 2012 [ 6633 Points ]

    NBA Jams, Jurassic Park, HotD III love the discounts, hate the freebies. Still I’m on the fence about Batman so I’ll add it.

  25. #25 by EdEN on July 5th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    @wolfkin: Our review says Renegade Ops is great, and I can definitely vouch for Pac Man DX Championship Edition. One addictive and fun game.

  26. #26 by wolfkin on July 5th, 2012 [ 6633 Points ]

    @EdEn already bought PacMan ages ago. Loved it. Well worth the $5 I spent. Just finished Assassin’s Creed.. thinking of writing a review on everything wrong with that game

  27. #27 by EdEN on July 5th, 2012 [ 142621 Points ]

    @wolfkin: Hahaha, really? I had fun with AC. HATED the flags.

  28. #28 by wolfkin on July 5th, 2012 [ 6633 Points ]

    @Eden to be fair it wasn’t ALL bad. But tell ya what next time I’m on chat with you we’ll talk it over I do need to see how much of it is just me.

  29. #29 by hobbes on July 5th, 2012 [ 30466 Points ]

    @eden i saw that but he also made a comment that could mean there would be more games later in the month: Keep your eyes on future PS Plus posts for surprises in terms of content type (PS3 Full Game, PSN Games, etc). So i guess i can hope we get another game this month. (Full game plus mini?)

  30. #30 by Markus on July 6th, 2012 [ 4322 Points ]

    Very, very tempting. ><

  31. #31 by Isli on July 7th, 2012 [ 45935 Points ]

    I just remember the original AC marketing campaign that really just focused on that Jade girl. Ah, good times.
