Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection Spooks NA PS Plus

Posted by Sammy Barker

ICO, Rayman Origins, and more up for grabs

PlayStation Plus subscribers are already enjoying September’s big update in Europe, but at least SCEA’s decided to pull back the curtain on its lineup a few days earlier than usual. As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, premium members in the New World will be able to scare themselves silly with lightgun compilation Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection starting next week.

The fright fest will be accompanied by the excellent HD remaster of ICO, as well as Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the PlayStation Vita port of Rayman: Origins, and the underrated (but genuinely awesome) Galaga Legions DX. There’s no word on a firm date for any of these titles, but they’ll be deployed gradually throughout the month rather than dumped in one lump sum.

There’s also no information on what’s leaving the Instant Game Collection in September, but we find that it’s good practice to “purchase” everything the minute that it becomes available. That way, it’s always banked safely in your account. Which of these titles are getting you hot under the collar? How do you feel that the update compares to Europe’s offering? Let us know in the comments section below.

@ferrers405 Yeah, I've got to admit, as much as I'd like to play the Chronicles HD Collection, I thought this was much weaker than Europe.

I thought NA stepped up their game last month with Hitman and Runner 2 and now this? Not the end of the world I'm sure I will get some enjoyment out of the Resident Evil Chronicles but can't say I'm not disappointed.

What about the 90 free days?

I signed onto my kids UK account to get the Puppeteer demo last night (all 5.785GB of it, exactly 10x bigger than our Pokemon Rumble U DL today) and saw the AC3 ad and the PS+ 90 days extra offer. Its been 7 months since mine lapsed. Seems like I wont be renewing this month either.

It weaker than Europe, but I sorta like it. Not sure if RE is for me cause I haven't played any of them. But I was REALLY hoping for free Rayman origins. And I bought shadow of the colossus without ico. Which worked out

Two month of no great game for vita, finally this Month I could approve. Never finish origin and never play Gta psp

Not quite as big as AC3 in europe but for once I have NONE of these games, so it's not a bad selection to me

Personally I'm really digging this month's lineup. A full 3 games out of 5 have me interested this time around (Galaga, Ico, and Rayman). Really looking forward to September now for more reason than "It's another month closer to PS4 launch."

I liked GTA: LCS so that tops my list. I don't own the Move so won't bother with the Chronicles games but I did play them on Wii and they were great. I highly recommend them to any RE fans who own a Move controller.



SilentJ said:

Nothing too spectacular but I'm happy with this update. I've been wanting to play Ico and Galaga for a while now. It'll also be nice to dust off the Move controller for RE. I recently bought Rayman Origins for PS3 but I'll gladly take the Vita version.

I think when you take into consideration that both Jak and Daxter Trilogy and Stealth Inc were cross buy, the NA PS Plus showing seems really weak.



Cloud7794 said:

@get2sammyb Yeah, I loved the demo and was saddened I had no funds for it at the time. I forgot about it and now, a few months later, it pops up for free.

This is payback for America separating from GBR isn't it lol. We always get the short end when it comes to plus, this is a decent month but once again EU wins out. I will replay the heck out of gta LCS though.
