The Simpsons Arcade Heads Up Amazing February PlayStation Plus Update

Posted by Sammy Barker

If you thought Laughing Jackal's Hungry Giraffe was going to be the highlight of February's PlayStation Plus update, then you were mistaken

Sony's just gone live on the PlayStation Blog confirming that the headline giveaway this week is the hotly rumoured port of The Simpsons Arcade Game. Just to clarify: you're getting that classic for free.

In addition, subscribers will also get a copy of Far Cry 2 as a special Valentine's Day present. That's in addition to free downloads of the aforementioned Hungry Giraffe, Final Fantasy V and the usual batch of themes and other goodies. There'll also be a discount on the upcoming House Of The Dead 3 when it arrives later in the month, and another opportunity to nab the full SEGA Mega Drive Collection gratis.

Phew. It's days like these that remind us why we absolutely adore PlayStation Plus.

Amazing! Then in 2 weeks I'll have the Simpsons arcade game on a handheld! This month really is something. And I've never played FFV.
