Sony PlayStation Store and Plus Content Manager Chris Howe has unveiled the PlayStation Plus March 2013 PS3 and PS Vita lineup below today for members.
To quote: Hi everyone! It's that time of the month again where we update you on all the new PlayStation Plus updates coming your way in March.
There are three new PS3 game and two for PS Vita in the line-up for March, as well as awesome titles such as F1 Race Stars, Quantum Conundrum and Wipeout 2048 that are already available.
Coming soon on PlayStation 3
We are very happy to announce that as of 6th March, for one month only, you can download acclaimed action RPG Mass Effect 3 as part of your PlayStation Plus subscription!
Developed by the very talented team at Bioware, this title completes the franchise in stunning form. The game plunges you into an all-out galactic war to take back earth from a terrifying enemy. It's truly a first class RPG experience so make sure you check it out.
And if that's not enough Mass Effect action for you, we've teamed up with our friends at publisher EA to offer great discounts on both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, for both Plus members and standard users. We'll confirm details shortly.
Also dropping into the service on 6th March is the beautifully designed fighter Dead or Alive 5 from Tecmo Koei.
Featuring a range of game modes, the game picks up two years after the destruction of the tri- tower - headquarters and symbol of DOATEC. Helena Douglas has begun the task of rebuilding DOATEC, this time with the aim of using its technology for peaceful ends. Now in the same position once held by her father, Helena has announced that she intends to hold the fifth Dead or Alive tournament.
Your final PS3 offering for the month is the incredibly fun Joe Danger 2: The Movie. Picking up where the chart-topping, award-winning original left off, JD2 takes the world's most determined stuntman to Hollywood.
You'll have to out run an avalanche as a skiing secret agent, take on laser spewing robots whilst flying a jetpack, or even become a water-skiing, sky-diving, quad-biking, dinosaur-dodging jungle adventurer.
Coming soon on PS Vita
First up for PS Vita on 13th March is Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Bundling together the second and third games in Hideo Kojima's beloved series, this is surely the definitive handheld Metal Gear experience, boasting well over 30 hours of gameplay.
And last but certainly not least, on 20th March addictive puzzle platform title Puddle will join the PS Vita service. Conserve as much liquid as possible when crossing a variety of obstacles such as burning passageways, carnivorous plants and electric currents as you guide a puddle of fluid through 49 levels using the system's rear touch pad and tilt functionality.
As usual, over the coming weeks you can also expect exclusive PS Plus discounts on lots of other products, including discounts on Dead or Alive 5 and Big Sky Infinity DLC.
From 27th February we also have a 40% discount on the brilliant Far Cry 3 courtesy of our friends at Ubisoft, and we'll also be offering you the Dust 514 Starter Pack DLC for free for two weeks! We'll update you on these offers and more in the weekly Store posts.
