January 31, 2012 // 6:49 pm - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with the PlayStation Plus February 2012 preview today, which offers a free Simpsons Arcade Game, Far Cry 2, Final Fantasy V and more detailed below!

To quote: February is nearly here, so it's time to have a look at what's coming to PlayStation Plus.

To start, we're excited to bring new release The Simpsons Arcade Game as a free offering for PlayStation Plus subscribers!

Releasing on February 7th, subscribers will be able to relive this classic title remastered in HD, complete with the online four-player cooperative play it's famous for.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, Plus subscribers will have access to download a bonus PS3 full game - Far Cry 2.

You're also going to want to check out the other free games coming throughout the month, including Square Enix's PS one classic Final Fantasy V, two PlayStation minis, six additional PSN games, and the SEGA Genesis Bundle - timed with SEGA's two-week release and sale on the Store put back in Plus just in case anyone missed them.

In the discount department, PlayStation Plus subscribers will want to keep their eyes out for great sales on games like new release The House of the Dead III (30% Off) Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition (Bundle) (20% off), and Hamilton's Great Adventure (50% off PSN sale price).

There's plenty more we couldn't squeeze into this post, so keep your eye on the Store Update PlayStation.Blog posts in February to keep up with Plus updates as they come.

Finally, next Tuesday we'll release an early-access demo of The House of the Dead III exclusively for PlayStation Plus. Here's a trailer of this PSN exclusive arcade shooter with HD graphics, Trophies and full PlayStation Move support.

this is bul'! i just bought GTA4 bundle for $30 at gamestop and I had no idea that ps+ was going to have a discount for it!!! I subscribe to their freaking newsletter and never got a heads up. I just found out barely today, 3 days after purchase, that GTA4 was on sale.

Shame on PSN for not letting me know ahead of time. I can't believe i have to go to a blog to find out what the real deal is for releases for ps+. my god PlayStation, get on the ball! you are going to lose me and my gf as loyal customers...

Looks like there are some great free classic games for Playstation plus members, way better than that "free game trial" crap they had, lol. Also "House of The Dead 3" looks like great fun with a PS Move controller, much better than "The Shoot" that was released a while ago.
