- Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Morgan Haro
has posted up this month's PlayStation Plus updates today, which include NFL Blitz joining the roster.
To quote: Last week you welcomed Starhawk's single-player campaign into your gaming collection for free as a PlayStation Plus member.
This week we continue to roll out even more content with NFL Blitz, coming free to Plus! Please note that Borderlands will be leaving Plus with this week's PlayStation Store update, so make sure you grab it while you can.
October 2nd PlayStation Plus Update
- Free for PlayStation Plus Members
With football (of the American variety) in full effect, we and our pals at EA thought it right to help you gather some friends and play one of the best arcade sports titles in recent memory, all for free with your Plus membership.
NFL Blitz features a combination of the arcade-style gameplay that made the original a hit and the deep, immersive game modes of today; recharged with an energetic, football gaming experience. Pick it up today, free with a Plus membership.
Alex Kidd in Miracle World
- 80% discount for PlayStation Plus Members (Regular Price: $4.99, PS Plus Price: $1.00)
You'll also see an amazing deal on SEGA's classic Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Remastered for PSN, this is your chance to meet one of gaming's original heroes, and get a great deal and a dose of nostalgia in the process. Journey to Miracle World in a search for your long lost brother Prince Egle, and get some Trophies while you're at it. You can also challenge yourself with all new trial modes.
- 50% discount (Regular Price: $9.99, PS Plus Price: $5.00) All DLC 80% Off (Regular Price: $4.99, PS Plus Price: $1.00)
Spelunker HD is no stranger to Plus members, as earlier last month we had a similar deal for the game. Fans (and to-be-fans) of the game will be excited to note that the new DLC releasing with the October 2nd Store Update (Area EX9 and Area EX10) will be joining the rest of the DLC with an 80% off discount – about $1 per Add-On. The game itself is going back on the 50% off deal as well, so get on it!
Lastly, I wanted to leave you guys with a Plus tip to help manage your benefits as a Plus member. If you're low on HDD space but don't want to miss out on any of the content in Plus, you can still click download, but then cancel the download. As long as you're a Plus member you'll be entitled to download it in the future, even if it's not in Plus at that time.
That's it for this week. Make sure you check out tomorrow's PlayStation Store update post to see all the details for this week's Plus update, and come back next week when we'll have more great Plus news to share.
Also, we'd love to know your thoughts as to what you enjoyed most about Plus in the month of September. Feel free to explain your vote in the comments, or in the Plus section
in the PlayStation Community forums.
