UK/US PlayStation Store FREE PS3/PS4/Vita Games - Plus tip how to gain access to US Store

106
Found 5th Jan 2014
Thought I would post this to make people aware, there are games on the UK & US Playstation Stores that are Free to Play. It is not widely advertised as I only saw it today.

I also have a tip for accessing the US Store. All you need to do to register is find an American address. This can be done by typing a search for any Mcdonalds, KFC, Burger King etc in an American state in Google and finding its full postal address (to be fair there are plenty of fast food chains in the US to choose from)

Once you have an address you can register as if your an American with that address and download all the US Store features. Below are a list of Free to Play games on the American Store:

PS3/PS4

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
DC Universe Online
Uncharted 3 Multiplayer
Tekken Revolution
Spartacus Legends
DUST 514
Capcom Arcade Cabinet
Everybody Dance Digital
Play station Home Arcade
Jetpack Joyride
Singstar Digital
Frobisher Says
Zen Pinball 2
Pinballistik
Free Realms
Back to the Future Episode 1: It's About Time
Buzz Quiz Player

Vita

BreakQuest Extra Revolution
Toros Friend Network
Jetpack Joyride
Zen Pinball 2
Treasure of Montzuma Blitz
Cliff Diving
Table Soccor

They also sometimes get exclusive demos not released in Europe, so worth a look every week for updates

UK list of free to play games can be found by clicking "get deal"

Hope this helps

-----------------

UPDATE - Confirmed this also works on PS4

----------------

UPDATE - I understand this can also be done on the Hong Kong PS Store, all pages are English as HK used to be British colonial rule

Yes, create another user on the PS3 that you can use to gain access to US store. Once you download games they can be played on using either your UK or US PSN name

That UK link doesn't look up to date because DOA5 Ultimate is F2P on the UK store, as well.

Seriously urge people to go download DOA5U. A better F2P model than Tekken Revolution, in my eyes.

You can probably do this on PS4 yes but I have not got one to confirm. Someone who has one will have to confirm

I couldn't find it personally, but if it is then agree. It's a great game. I got it on US Store

It's hidden away on the UK Store, unfortunately.

It's definitely in the Demos section, called DOA5U Core Fighters. But it doesn't seem to be in the actual F2P section of the store, which needs sorting.

Easiest thing to do would be to just search in the store for 'Core Fighters'.

nothing for ps4 new? for what they promise free games every month if they have the same free games...

Not sure how this is a deal? It's just free to play games..

Thanks very much. Just gotta kick the kids out of the front room to get on the PS3 lol. Have to think up a good ole redneck name for the account lol Heat from me

Look forward to checking this out, got a ps3 for Christmas so would love some games to play.

Am I doing something wrong? I can't find it in the UK store. If I go to PS3 Demos, al I have is trial and unlock for free, then if I look in PS3 Games, it's £29.99 with the trial and unlock one next to it. Edit: don't worry got it off the US store, was quicker than working it out

Cheers OP!

I've not got access at the moment, but have you downloaded the game titled "DOA5 Ultimate Core Fighters"?

That's all you need.

There will be a full unlockable version for £30, but Core Fighters is the free-to-play version of the game, where you can purchase further characters and the story mode separately in the game.

Your welcome

It is. It's called Core Fighters.

store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/!/en-gb/search/q=core%20fighters

moneysavingkitten, glad you got it working now, but yes, you were right - the trial and unlock is the version you needed.

There's also the free download of another character too - Hitomi.

At the link I posted above, you can download Core Fighters + Hitomi in one go.

Thanks very much for the tip

I think Tekken Revolution and Spartacus Legends are on the UK store too I think, because I already had them, if that makes it easier for anyone. You can only get so far in them without buying extra bits in them from what I remember though. Possibly Play station Home Arcade as well, if that is the thing you have to get to play WipEout 2D.

Yeah, Tekken Rev is definitely on the UK Store.

Just one final tip - if you download the US version of the game (regarding DOA5U), you must download US characters/costumes for them to work, too. You can't download the US game and a costume or character from the UK Store or they won't show up in the game. They have to be from the same store (e.g. US game and US character/costume, or UK game and UK character/costume). I personally try to stick to UK downloads/purchases wherever possible.

Do you need 2 p's + accounts

Cold.

PS Plus does give you free games (although I think they are removed if you subscription runs out), but I don't think you need it for this. Much cheaper to do PS+ yearly as well, there are often offers for it on here

Yes, unless your first PS account is already a US PS account not a UK one.

The free-to-play version is called Core Fighters. It is listed as a 'trial' in the Store, yes. There is no time limit on it. It is essentially DOA5U, just without all of the characters and the story mode unlocked. Don't let the 'trial' thing worry you. It's just not the full game with all the characters unlocked, that's all. You can buy the full game for about £30 if you prefer, or just download Core Fighters (the "trial) and purchase the characters you want separately.

Most of these Free To Play games are rubbish and not worth the hassle. Sorry Cold. Pay a few quid for a decent playable game. Utter Crap

Can't recommend the Uncharted highly enough. The best series I own on PS3. You can Google top games for PS3, then look at reviews and trailers on Amazon. Loads of gameplay videos on YouTube as well, and can all be bought so cheaply now. I have a PS4 now as well, but I wouldn't give up my PS3 for anything, and right now it beats the PS4 for a lot of things such as playing mp3s and divx or xvid or mp4 videos etc.

The Uncharted *series* that should have been :-)

I own a vita and im having a problem setting up a US account as i already have a UK account on it, is there anyway to gain access to US store on my vita

Cold voters are only jealous cause microsoft gives them nothing

It does get annoying when they start asking you to buy crap, but they do add a bit of variation and pass some time. What annoys me more is things like GTA5 where you have to pay a fortune then they *still* ask you to buy things with real money. They shouldn't be allowed to have it both ways.

would this work to download the US PS Plus games, or is that locked to the one account on which you registered it?

Am I missing something, how is this a deal? At best it should be posted in the Freebies section but would be most suited to Misc as it's really information ....

We had a US account set up back when we got the PS3 a few years back but they eventually blocked it (guessing based on ISP provider being BT from what my hubby remembers about the message he got) - lasted 6 months to a year before it was blocked.

Can anyone confirm or deny if this still happens???

Just tried it out, I have UK PS+. I think you would need to buy a US PS+ subscription, then you might be able to. It tries to charge me for PS+ games.

I've had mine for about 6 months, but I don't use it very often to be honest.

Can't see it being answered but it does also work on PS4, not downloaded anything from the store other than the US Netflix app but it's all there.
