of PlayStation Digital Platforms has announced today that Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is free for PlayStation Plus members as part of this month's updates.
Below are the details, to quote: This week PlayStation Plus continues the piping hot delivery of updates to keep you warm this December.
Last week, you took the plunge into the underwater world of Rapture with BioShock 2 joining the Instant Game Collection. This week, you'll be busting out your shoryukens and controlling gravity with two great games: Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Rochard!
December 11th PlayStation Plus Update
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (PS3)
Free for Plus members
Street Fighter IV was already a bonafide hit when it ushered in a new era of 2D fighters. Take that winning formula, refine and balance one of the best fighting game engines, add four new characters (Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, and Oni), take part in new online modes and you've got one of the most complete fighting game packages ever.
See you online; I'll be the guy using this handy guide
to my all time favorite fighting game character.
Free for Plus members
A PSN gem, Rochard brings fantastic puzzle-platforming in the form of taking control of astro-miner John Rochard. Though a humble premise it may be, you'll be addicted to the gravity control mechanics of Rochard as you solve environmental puzzles and explore new ways to navigate the wonderful trappings of this galactic platformer.
It's a PSN exclusive that, if you missed, you should definitely make the time to play. You can read more on the game from the PlayStation Blog's coverage. Please note, this title will only be available free in Plus for one week.
That's it for this week's update, and remember that the above updates will be in effect once the PlayStation Store updates on December 11th; usually between the times of 2:00pm - 5:00pm PST.
Also, for those wondering, we do have PS Vita games on the way in December that will add to the already great library of content on PS Vita Plus. Watch for those to be announced in this space later this month.
Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.
Please remember to jump in to the PlayStation Community Forums in the Plus space where you'll find threads (or start your own!) to discuss Plus. Of course, leave your thoughts here as well and remember, giving specific feedback is always the best course.
Enjoy the update, and see you in the comments.
