Sony Gives Thanks with Meaty North American PS Plus Update

Posted by Sammy Barker

Borderlands 2, GRID 2, Dyad, and more

Swallow that chunk of Thanksgiving turkey before you continue, North American readers – we don’t want you choking over next month’s PlayStation Plus update. Never ones to take a break, Sony has outlined December’s cracking Instant Game Collection offering, and there are a handful of humdingers in here that should get you in the Christmas spirit.

Top of the billing is Borderlands 2, the loot-‘n’-shoot first-person sequel from Gearbox. It’ll be joined by Codemasters’ street racer GRID 2, indie epilepsy-‘em-up DYAD, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for the PlayStation Vita. Fans of Sony’s slimline system will also scoop Urban Trial Freestyle, the dirt bike excursion absolutely not inspired by RedLynx’s similarly named series.

As is always the case with SCEA, these releases will be deployed gradually throughout the month. Sadly, it seems that there are no PlayStation 4 titles on the docket in December, so you’ll have to make do with Resogun and Contrast for now. The usual roster of discounts and offers will be revealed in the run up to Christmas. Are you satisfied with this month’s lineup? What are you most looking forward to playing? Are you disappointed by the lack of PS4 titles? Stuff our stocking in the comments section below.

Already have Borderlands 2 T_T
Well maybe I might be able to play with other users now that almost everyone will have the game.
I also think this is pretty wierd after all they are porting this game for the Vita.

Wow this is actually a bit early for Sony o.o Usually they don't announce North America's offerings until like the day before. Will be happy to try Borderlands, but DYAD has me more interested at the moment.

BTW guys, I made it into the First to Greatness I'm the first to pull off Hit Rampage in Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition

sonic racing on the vita will be fun. borderlands is of course awesome but it fits in that category of I'm never going to have time to finish this. Curse you ps+!

Sonic Racing for my Vita.

I couldn't get into Borderlands, it's a great game no doubt but (the part where you have to fight the bug looking mutants, could never get over my fear of that part). I might pick up two though.

Might give Urban Freestyle a Shot.

Does Borderlands 2 have any kinda of story? The first game was very lackluster in that department.

I was excited for Sonic Racing until I saw it was for the Vita. The rest dnt really interst me. Something was leaving on the 2nd that I wanted otherwis eI Wa sgoing to wai tuntil cHRistmad.

Going to pick up my S+ i abut an hour on Amazon for $30 if anybody wants a cheaper subscription price. Gamestop has i as well but I'm not leavng the house tomorrow.

Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed tops my list and it's official, I need a new memory card for Vita. I hate giving in and getting a 32GB because the price is still absurd but I might have to. At the same time, I probably shouldn't be complaining too much given the amount of money the awesome PS+ service has saved me the last couple years.



rjejr said:

Amazon is giving a $5 video credit on the $29.99 PS+ for anybody whos still on the fence. I don't know what $5 will get you but it's something. I'm enjoying a free month of Prime and the Prime selection is very lame.

definitely disappointed by lack of PS4 PSN+ giveaways, but its understandable. They aren't going to give away any big AAA titles just yet, especially when the system came out half way through november. They could give away Knack, but i don't see that happening soon. They'll likely giveaway indie titles for the first few months or so, since everything else is so new.

@Splat: Yes Borderlands 2 has a storyline unlike Borderlands

Disappointed that they are no PS4 games though.
