Playstation Plus Update - February 2013
Posted by Mark
February's Playstation Plus titles have been annouced this afternoon on the Playstation EU Blog. It is a pretty epic month for all you Plus subscribers. Another 5 games are to be added to the instant game collection and they are all amazing games. Lets start with PS3 titles avaliable on the 6th Feb.
Sleeping Dogs is first up and is a massive addition to the Instant Game Collection. Sleeping Dogs was one of 2012's anticipated games and it certainly didn't disappoint. Set in Hong Kong, follow the journey of undercover police officer, Wie Shen. As he takes on the Triads in quest for justice and revenge. Though as with all good Hong Kong thrillers, where will his loyalties lie? With the Police Superiors or his adopted Triad family? I reviewed this last year and gave it a superb 9/10
Next up is a nice surprise and a rest from all the guns and violence. Codemasters F1 Race Stars joins the collection. Its a nice little Kart racer, based around and featuring the stars of Formula 1 (obviously). I had a play of this at the EG expo last year and did seem lots of fun.
Finally, PS3 owners can also download Quantum Conudrum, a first person dimension changing puzzler, from one of the creators of the legendary Portal. So that should keep you guys busy!
Meanwhile Vita owners, do not worry! You have not been forgotten. February sees two of the best Vita titles added to the Vita Game Collection... for free!
Finally, Wipeout 2048 comes to European Plus line up. What can I say about 2048? It is beautiful, fast and fluid. It possibly is the greatest version of Wipeout to date (especially if you have the HD and Fury packs added to it). One last thing, it is rock hard , an immense challenge and it drives me insane! Pick it up on the 13th February and enjoy one of the best racers on the system.
20th February sees Lumines: Electronic Symphony added to the collection as well. Lumines is a fantastic puzzle game series that combines the block action of tetris, with the music and rhythm of amplitude. Its the kind of game where you turn on , tune in and lose hours of your life.
With all this good news, there must be some sad news. The following titles will be removed from the Plus service next week. If you haven't got them yet, now is your last chance!
6th February: BioShock 2
6th February: Ratchet and Clank All 4 One
6th February: Cubixx HD
13th February: Jet Set Radio
20th February: Pinball Arcade
