Saints Row: The Third, Gods Eater Burst Join Free PS Plus Titles

Saints Row: The Third, Gods Eater Burst Join Free PS Plus Titles

Saints Row The Third 6

Two new titles join the PlayStation Plus Instant Games Collection tomorrow, Saints Row: The Third and Gods Eater Burst.

That's the news, and now for explanations of what all of that means.

Those of you with PlayStation Plus subscriptions should already be aware that this entitles you to download and play a certain selection of games absolutely free of charge. Exactly which games you can enjoy gratis is constantly-changing, as Sony updates the list every few weeks, adding a few new titles here and removing a few older ones there.

Come June 18 we receive the PlayStation 3 incarnation of Saints Row: The Third, and the Vita's Gods Eater Burst.

The former you should know as a wildly over-the-top, open world sandbox action title. Something like Grand Theft Auto, only instead of homages to Scorsese films, Saints Row: The Third features weaponized sex toys. There's no mature, wholesome way to describe it, but if you haven't played the game and own a PlayStation 3, you really should click through the PlayStation Store to pick the thing up.

Gods Eater Burst, in turn, is far more obscure action title from Namco Bandai. The game originally debuted on the PSP in 2011, and while it's certainly a passable, overtly Japanese adventure, there's little of obvious merit to recommend buying the thing. Luckily that's not really a problem now that it's being offered up for free, is it?

While the biggest news here is obviously the new additions to the Instant Game Collection, it's important to remember that this update also removes titles from the Collection. Specifically Vanquish and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend. You have until June 25 to download either of those games, and each will continue to function until you delete it from your Sony device of choice.

If your interest in Sony's PlayStation Plus initiative has been piqued by all of this, you can find full info on how to sign up for the service by visiting the Sony Entertainment Network.

I wonder if these will still be there by the time the PS4 comes around?

Not enough Dildos for you Cavalli?

Awww, got my hopes up there, but it seems it's only in good old 'Murica that these are available in.

If you delete something it is still available to be redownloaded. You just have to have a ps+ subscription. It only becomes unavailable if you never downloaded it when it was in the IGC. You can delete and redownload as many times as you want.

Europe's PS+'s been outdoing that of 'Murica for quite some time. I'm pretty jealous of you Yurps.

From what I remember God Eater Burst was a 3D action title reminded me of Monster Hunter. Read a manga about it involving weapons that were monsters or turned into monsters. Weird stuff

As for Vanquish I have it on my PS3 atm and its says it expires 12/7/2013. I have 171 days left to play it apparently.

Definitely good news to me. I can shelf my saints row 3 disk for good now since it's on my hard drive.

I'm definitely a fan of subscribing to a service that provides a service and gives full games, discounts, half off sales, and so forth as bonuses.

I've played games I normally might not have like Sleeping Dogs thanks to Playstation plus offering it for free. I also got games I wanted by chance, like X-com Enemy Unknown.

the latest update also reminded me of a gem called "flower."

It is a shame that the free games are limited time, though. Still, once downloaded, they're yours to download again later near as I can tell. At least so long as you're a member of playstation plus at the time. :P

And yeah you can't play those free games if you stop being a member, but to me, it's pretty worth it to stay a member.
