Those two will be available for the next 12 weeks until November 7, which should give you plenty of time to exhaust their ample offerings.


Eh? I thought that once you downloaded a PSN+ "Free" Game, it was yours to play for the length of your membership??

Aw c'mon!

It's always the same, you give us games everybody in the world (I know because I personally counted) already have. What about us hardcore gamers that buy every game the second they're released, you could at least give us Uncharted 4, Last Guardian or Infamous 3 in place.

I'd rather pay for the option of talking to strangers while we play different games. Yes, I realise It's a bit like those adult phone in shows on Sky. But I at least get the happy ending that's severely lacking on your service.

My milks off as well and that's your fault. Plus should keep it refrigerated for the massive amount it costs!

Now that's out the way, good update I've not played Just Cause 2 yet.

This is how it should be done giving gamers a reason to to pay online,not just take,take,take.
Good one Sony.
Valve Steam Box please make it happen.Maybe not?

What a waste of money
/sarcasm
Already owned Borderlands but didn't buy all the DLC (which is now discounted - thanks)
Just Cause 2 was one of those games I never quite fancied but more than happy to try it out.
The real steal is the £2 off Sound Shapes - a great little game: cross-play too
This is the space where clever things gets said?

I think I might subscribe to PS+, some of the deals they have are really good. Unfortunately I've already got these two gems.

Been loving PS Plus lately. If you don't buy lots of games or your a recent purchaser of a PS3 it is one sweet deal.

Wish Sony didn't have a limited download period though and it just was a library of games you could enjoy at any time. My 120Gb slim is creaking under the strain. I have to delete most games after they download just to make room for the next which is the work around to have access to everything I want whenever I want :shock:

Still,it is better than a kick in the head! :lol:

I believe your able to re-download games if you've already downloaded and uninstalled them as long as your PS+ account is still active - think you just have to go to your download history from the PS store (dont quote me on that though but i'm 90% sure thats how it works).

Yep that's how it works. As long as you added it to your download list when it was available for free, you can download it for it free. I go through the process of downloading every free game and just don't action the download for games I'm not going to play. Then I have available to download if I change my mind after they have left PS+.
