Found 10th Apr 2013
Was browsing the eu PlayStation blog and noticed that Jawad stated the following:

Please note: Further briefing from HQ shows Hitman Absolution – included in the discounts below – is also landing on all EU PlayStation Plus member services as part of the Instant Game Collection from 1st May! Non PS Plus members can sign up for as little as €14.99/£11.99 and download it at no extra cost, as well as other great titles to be announced next week!

Good Spot, have some heat

Don't care what people say about the PS+ "heads-up" posts not being deals, thanks for letting me know-it makes any deal for Hitman now not a deal for me

Hoping for some nice Vita content too...

Time to trade mine in then....

I need to get signed up to this, some of these free games are great and fairly recent.

I'd just hope the membership transfers across to the PS4 and you can continue to download and play the free games.

Just bought this last month, typical! Heat!

Surely it's not just about one game but the many games that can be d/loaded over the year,i have subriscrbed to ps+ for a couple of months now and in monetary terms download at least £100's worth.

Wow. Might pull me back to my PS3. Awesome!

Fantastic. I've been hoping to try it out. For free? Yes please!

Wish Microsoft would give us top titles like Sony give to those of you on the dark side!

Playing Hitman Absolution on my 360 at the moment, and loving it. Took a while to get into (I was a bit gung-ho), but once you play it as a stealth-em-up it's great fun - and has a fair bit of replayability, too.

Heat added.

If you look at the comments people are using these posts for a number of reasons...personally I think this is a lot more relevant than the multiple voucher-related "deals" (I'm looking at YOU, Blockbuster "5MARKET") that we see here.

Fantastic I bought this on PC last week this has happened to me every month for the last 3 or 4 heat added all the same.

Great spot, thanks. Also those wondering about the "Deal" click the button and go to the site, this is actually the announcement of a sale but with some surprising honesty by Sony telling PS Plus members NOT to buy a game as they'll be getting it as part of their subscription 1st May.

Other good deals on Deus Ex, Splinter Cell and Hitman classics

whatsThePoint

so your saying this should be a heads up for ps+ not a single game


You're fun. And I can totally understand why you're spending your time arguing in this thread.

It's good that Sony as forewarned us that this will become free for PS+ users. Nice to see.

whatsThePoint

if this was a deal you wouldn't need to argue with me


I'm arguing with you?

so your saying this should be a heads up for ps+ not a single game



Yes it certainly would not be worth it on the basis of a single game.

whatsThePoint

where's the deal, its a heads up unless your spending £30 (yes I know it … where's the deal, its a heads up unless your spending £30 (yes I know it can be cheaper) on ps+ just to get this game



1 - It isn't just one game for £30 (which is a year subscription) in fact it IS stated above that it can cost £11.99 (which is a 3 month subscription) and there are many games you can get. At least 1 game is changed every week but you will still be able to access any game that has been on the list since you started subscribing as long as it is in your downloaded list and you are still subscribing.

2 - If you signed up today before the store was changed you would get the following games as part of your subscription -

1 - Okami HD
2 - Lord Of the Rings:War In the North
3 - The Cave
4 - Dead or Alive 5
5 - Joe Danger 2
6 - F1 Race Stars
7 - Quantum Conundrum
8 - Puddle (Vita)
9 - Little Big Planet 2
10 - Motorstorm Apocalypse
11- Infamous 2
12- Uncharted Golden Abyss (Vita)
13 - Gravity Rush (Vita)

3 - Anything bought while subscribing that has been discounted will be yours to keep even when your subscription is over.


Yes I do use PS+ and Yes I do believe it's good value.
I don't usually keep games after finishing them so it works well for me.
Basically like renting from Blockbuster without the annoyance of having to return it in a few days/week and it's cheaper too.

Can YOU rent at least 12 DIFFERENT games a month from anywhere else and be able to access them anytime you want while you are subscribed for £30 a year or less? If so please enlighten us all.

Congratulations, you just made the dumbest post on the internet. So anyone who argues with someone, after they've made a point if automatically wrong?

Amazing game on PC. Stunning graphics and gameplay

Excellent - thanks for the heads-up.

If this continues into the PS4 generation, this could be what makes me switch my allegiance across to Playstation, especially if the persistent "always on" rumours turn out to be true.

Ignoring all the above nonsense, does anyone know if today is the last day for the 3 month bonus on 1 year PS+ subscriptions? It doesn't say anything about it on the store page.

I've been a member since December and this is probably the best game they've featured in that time (I already paid money for it and completed it). Great game, bags of challenge and replay value. What I'd really love would be remakes of some of the levels from Hitman 2, Contracts and Blood Money with the new controls, AI etc - can't see it happening sadly.

PS+ is quality; could really help Sony with uptake of the PS4 if there's downloadable games available at launch.

its not a deal so clearly your dumb to think it is, but my comment will … its not a deal so clearly your dumb to think it is, but my comment will soon be forgotten where as your always going to be dumb



Because arguing if something is / isn't a deal is smart, right?

Ps plus is excellent and have recently subscribed to it...only shame is the games become free a little too long after release. Already own most titles including this on my Xbox which I got for £15.

I guess its really for people who don't buy games on release or a couple months after or people who like to double dip on both consoles.

THANK GOD!

I was so close to posting this...it was getting rather annoying. Ironic given the offender was being pretty pedantic about the "argument"...

Yes! Looking forward to this! Just downloading virtues last reward or whatever it's called looks good just mgs2 & 3 to finish and the 7 other games haha'

Cheers for the head's up about the new content coming in May. Heat added. PS+ is amazing value does make you wonder with all the newish games comign out and then going on PS+ nearly 6 months after release.

Excellent. I did think this would be coming soon.

Thanks for the heads up... Now I can sell my copy of Hitman :-) Anybody know if the trophies I have already obtained from the disc version will just be added to, from the digital copy or does it create a new trophy list? I'm presuming I can carry on with my saved game from the disc version and just carry on getting my trophies as normal... Thanks for the info in advance.

I'm pretty confident the trophies will carry over from the disc version.

Awesome, PS+ is such good value. I wonder what Xbox will do in response? A free avatar t-shirt or a desktop theme?

Thought this would be on playstation plus like sleeping dogs was, but expected to wait a bit longer. Glad I held of the multiple times it went on sale for PC. Might hold of longer on tomb raider as well, as it might follow this pattern of square enix games being on plus after roughly 6 months.

I can confirm that the trophies and saved game files do carry on

Told you all about this months ago. Obvious as soon as the price started to drop. When newish games start going for £12 or less then there's a strong chance that they will be on ps+ a couple if months later. Exactly why you get a lot of people saying 'I just bought this last week' and now it's free....

This is great news. I was really hesitant to get it due to all the feedback from Hitman fans. I'm glad I'll get a chance to try it anyway.

Damn, i just bought Hitman a few weeks back on the 360 and haven't even opened it yet! ....... I do love PSN+, it is such good value and actually got me using the PS3, as it was previouosly a glorified blu-ray player.
