2w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that Soul Sacrifice is free for PlayStation Plus members.
To quote: One of the most critically acclaimed PS Vita titles, Soul Sacrifice, is now available in the Instant Game Collection.
Created by Keiji Inafune, best known for his work on the Mega Man franchise, this action RPG pits you against an evil sorcerer. The question is, how are you going to defeat him when you're locked up in a fleshy cage? A talking book named Librom (it reminds me of the spell book in Hocus Pocus) is the answer.
Librom will transport you back to past events, also known as Phantom Quests, so you can train and develop your power. The game really shines with its "save or sacrifice" combat mechanics, where you'll need to make key decisions about what you need most (i.e. more health or more magic), or choose to unleash a devastating black rite spell by destroying part of your body.
The best way to grasp the game is to try it out, so get to downloading when this becomes free for PS Plus members tomorrow!
You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 11/26.

3w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus updates today, which include Binary Domain and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath free for members.
To quote: Chances are, if you picked up a PlayStation 4 last week you're still enjoying our PS4 PlayStation Plus titles, RESOGUN and Contrast, and that's totally cool. However, if you're anxiously waiting for your PS4 to arrive later this holiday season, we've got you covered with a new PlayStation 3 and PS Vita game this week.
Binary Domain, a futuristic third-person squad-based shooter, is hitting the PS3 Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Morality meets gunfire, Binary Domain's Consequences System means you'll need to be aware of your actions - how your squad views you can impact the game as well as how the storyline progresses.
On PS Vita there's Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, an action-adventure where you step into the role of Stranger, a bounty hunter. Whether or not you head into your bounties guns blazing or prefer a more stealthy approach is up to you, as well as whether you apprehend your subjects alive or dead.
Your main goal is to earn as much money as possible, so it's kind of like real life.
You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store...
4w ago - Compulsion Games Producer Derek Elliott announced that Contrast is out today on PS4, and is free for PlayStation Plus Members.
To quote: Contrast, our PS4 launch title, is out today. If you were born in the '70s (as I was), or have watched "Arrested Development," you'll know the song "The Final Countdown." It is cornily (Is that a word?) appropriate when your game is close to launch status.
It can pump you up and can also bring you back to all the good and bad that was the '80s. Much simpler times when two programmers would make all of the design, art, animation, sound, and code for a game. And back then, game design counted for something. Be damned you kids these days and your fancy save games and discs you don't have to blow on to play.
Games like Paperboy, Dig Dug, and - one of my personal favorites - Racing Destruction Set were profoundly fun because they were simple. But simple didn't mean easy. These games somehow got made because of a genuine fire to develop something new and have fun in a brand new industry.
The early Godfathers of video games were passionate because they accomplished something special, were published, and people responded to their creations.
5w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is free for members as part of the PlayStation Plus content updates this week.
To quote: We're kicking off this month's PlayStation Plus freebies with Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. This vast role playing game includes the original title with a few key changes like fast-travel.
If you're unfamiliar with the franchise, it allows you to fight massive creatures (and some of them you can even climb on), hire specialized friends (also known as pawns) to help you in combat, all while exploring an expansive world with a new region, Bitterblack Island, thanks to the Dark Arisen expansion. This is a great title to get lost in while you await your PlayStation 4.
You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after tomorrow's PlayStation Store update.

An epitaph speaks of another's demise... A mysterious island known as Bitterblack Isle appears off the coast of Gransys.

The time to take up arms has come once...
6w ago - Sony's Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates below, which include Sine Mora free for PS Plus Members!
To quote: Ever feel like you don't have enough time? Well, that's by design in Sine Mora, where classic shoot-em-up mechanics (or shmup, if you like saying funny words) are blended with a new twist: you're racing against the clock.
Instead of scoring points, you'll hunt down enemies to gain precious seconds and hopefully avoid the Game Over screen. PlayStation Plus members get the PS Vita version of this title for free starting tomorrow.
It's week 2 of our Sale of the Dead promotion, and that means you can save money on awesome titles like the recently released Puppeteer, the classic BioShock and the adorable Costume Quest. There's a great variety of content available - check it all out below.
You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, October 29th.
