October’s PS+ content rocks

2 min read


The Euro PSBlog has updated, giving us a glimpse of what PlayStation Plus subscribers will be treated to this month – and there’s some good stuff.

First up, coming tomorrow is Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit, a mental side-scrolling action platformer about a maniacal rabbit, that’s tons better than another side-scroller about a deranged crazy rabbit.

On October 10 though, prepare to use up a bit of bandwidth, as you’ll be able to download People Can Fly’s insane, colourful shooter Bulletstorm, as well as Resident Evil 5 Gold – all for free.

In addition to that, you’ll also receive some sparkly discounts on the following:

  • 3rd October: Spelunker HD – 50% off the full game and 50% off various DLC packs for two weeks
  • 10th October: Derrick the Deathfin – 30% off
  • 17th October: Dogfight 1942 – 50% off a bundle including the full game and two DLC packs
  • 24th October: Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit – 20% off DLC packs

It’s not all  good news though. Because the free games are on rotations, the following games will be removed from the Instant Game Collection Service:

  • 3rd October: Red Dead Redemption
  • 10th October: Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light
  • 10th October: Saints Row 2

It means you’ve missed your chance to download Red Dead Redemption, one of this generations very best games. Guardian of Light and Saints Row 2 will be going away next week. Here’s a tip for the future  if you’re struggling for bandwidth though; add the game to your queue without downloading it – and because you’ve “purchased “ it (for free!)  it’ll be in your download history, ready for whenever you have the megabytes to spare.

Don’t feel left out, Xbox gamers. Remember, you get free stuff for subscribing to Xbox Live as well – like a birthday gift from Microsoft to the value of $0.25.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
