6w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with a preview of the PlayStation Plus November 2013 content below!
To quote: It's going to be quite the month for PlayStation fans. PS4 is almost here, and it's going to be mega awesome when I fire mine up for the first time and already have two free games to play.
Yep, both Resogun, the intense and beautiful shoot 'em up from Housemarque(the amazing people behind Super Stardust) and Contrast, a unique 2D/3D puzzler platformer with a stunning art style will be available in the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members on November 15th.
Of course, we have plenty of other great games to keep you busy until then, like Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, which is an expanded and enhanced version of Capcom's original IP Dragon's Dogma. There's a new area to explore, a fast-travel system and plenty of new quests and weapons to keep you busy.
Later on this month we'll add ibb & obb, a 2-player co-op puzzler and Binary Domain, a third-person squad shooter. PS Vita owners can look forward to two amazing action-adventure titles: the classic Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and the ever-epic Soul Sacrifice.
These games will hit the Instant Game Collection at various times throughout the month, so check back with...
11w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with the PlayStation Plus October 2013 content preview updates below.
To quote: I'm a sucker for fantasy. If a game allows it, I'll create an elf mage because magic is awesome. This month I can do just that as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is entering the Instant Game Collection. With a tale crafted by NY Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, stunning visuals from Todd McFarlane, and a customizable combat system, Reckoning has a lot to offer RPG fans.
The mix-and-match combat means I can get my magic fix while also smashing things in the face with a hammer, or stabbing them with a sword and other various pointy weapons, which is pretty cool if you ask me.
You may remember that last month we added Team Ico's original cult classic ICO to the IGC, so their equally beloved sequel Shadow of the Colossus seemed like a natural follow-up. Slaying the majestic Colossi should make you feel something (read: incredibly guilty), but hey, you gotta save your #1 girl, right? In a completely different vein, Plus members will also receive Poker Night 2, which is an amusing twist on the classic card game.
With GLaDOS as the dealer and opponents like Claptrap from Borderlands and Ash from Army of Darkness you can sit back, have...

New PlayStation 3 titles
I'm personally very excited about the hero title for next month - EA's RPG adventure Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
From the genius creative minds of bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning follows the story of a resurrected hero known as the "Fateless One", who embarks on a quest to discover the secrets behind his own fate. Sounds pretty epic right?
Moving swiftly on, if you missed it in the Knights and Witches Sale blog I am very happy to confirm that as of 29th May, Plus subscribers can also download ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD, both developed by our very own Japan Studio.
ICO follows a mysterious boy who has been expelled...
