North American PlayStation Plus Awakens with Sleeping Dogs

Posted by Sammy Barker

Pinball Arcade and Knytt Underground also up for grabs

After being severely stomped by its European counterpart for a number of months, SCEA has responded with a bumper PlayStation Plus offering for May. Announced during the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, those of you that are subscribers will be able to feast on as many free pork buns as you can muster with Sleeping Dogs from 7th May.

But that’s not all. Also on the horizon are complimentary copies of cross-buy favourites Pinball Arcade and Knytt Underground, in addition to BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend for the PlayStation Vita. There are no dates attached to the aforementioned titles, but you can expect them to deploy at some point during the month.

Subscribers can also look forward to a 25 per cent discount on indie hit Papo & Yo starting next Tuesday. The usual roster of additional offers and discounts will be announced later in the month. For comparison’s sake, Europe’s line-up comprises Hitman Absolution, Catherine, Malicious, Sine Mora, and Velocity Ultra this month.

Are you satisfied with the line up? Let us know in the comments section and poll below.

Nice lineup, I wonder if they will completely refresh the IGC on E3.

@Gemuarto You guys do seem to have gotten a lot of fighting games lately. To be honest, though, I'm actually kind of jelly of that one.

@UNC5052 We're due new 'evergreen' titles at E3, right? I suspect LittleBigPlanet Karting and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be two that get added. Not sure what the third will be.

@get2sammyb They will both get added when they get enough DLC to keep getting money from those games. So we will still need to wait a bit.

@Epic They're not going to get money from All-Stars so it will be on the IGC without a shadow of doubt. I agree with Sammy that LBP Karting will be on there too. As for the third I imagine it'll be either Killzone 3 or one of the last two Uncharted games. Two disappointing games though, hardly the sort of thing to make you want to get PS Plus. In a dream world they need to have three AAA games - Sony-made or not - that haven't been used yet to entice people on to Plus before the PS4 arrives.

Everyone should give Sleeping Dogs a shot. Especially if you enjoy the Batman games because the hand to hand combat is very similar.
