To quote: Happy New Year from the PlayStation Plus team!
As many of you know, PlayStation Plus is the subscription service from PlayStation Network that gets you access to free games, huge discounts, and great exclusives across the network. And we're kicking off the New Year in a big way!
This month's spotlight free PSN Game is none other than Telltale's Back to the Future The Game - Full Series. All of the episodes from this acclaimed adventure game are available for you to download starting with the January 3rd PlayStation Store update.
We're also including PSN Game Sword and Soldiers with tomorrow's update. This side-scrolling strategy game lets you control an entire army while wielding devastating magical abilities.
Free PS one Classics make their rounds this month in the form of the original Syphon Filter games. Syphon Filter 1, 2 and 3 will be available free, for the entire month starting also with the next Store update.
The PlayStation Store regularly holds events and sales for all PSN members throughout the year, and Plus always gives an extra leg-up in taking advantage of these sales. This month is no different as we're gearing up to launch our 12 for '12 sale.
