Free for Playstation + Members.

#1 Edited by Hizang (8534 posts) -

Playstation Store is now up and running, and though the Welcome Back package is not yet ready, there is Burnout Paradise for free for Playstation + members. So If you never picked this up, here is your chance.  
I apologise, to all the US readers because this seems to be Europe Exclusive.

Hmmm, that's a pretty sweet freebie, ignoring the fact it's probably dirt cheap by now. Awesome game.

I already completed the single player 100% on my xbox, but I recently sold it, so I guess I can start all over again on my PS3. It's a fantastic game, probably my favorite game this generation, and that soundtrack, so I'm actually excited about it!

I will try this out during the free 30 days that we are gonna get.

Where are you seeing this for free? It is not under the PS+ section for me, and the game in the marketplace is $19.99/29.99.

Only get it for a month so not bothering

@Murtaug
This may be a Europe thing and not US thing. 
I have not played the game before, ever since its come out I've been like "Should I get this or should I not?" I've been debating about it since then and pretty much every time I go to a Game shop I pick it up, look at it, then put it back down.

You might want to edit your initial post to clarify that this is currently Europe only.

@Jasonofindy
Done

Thank you.  Much appreciated.   
 
Who knows?  Maybe when the store next updates that will turn out to be this month's game of the month on Plus here in North America as well.  As far as I can tell they haven't added this month's PSN game yet.  When the store came up in North America this morning, they had only added a couple of minis, a bit of SOCOM DLC, and a couple discounts to the Plus offerings that were already up when PSN went down,

It might not be quality music, but it fits the tone of the game, and I find Avril Lavinge to be enjoyable, not necessarily good, but enjoyable.

I've spent about 2 hours with the game now, and I must say that this is a fantastic game! I really really REALLY love this game, and to be truthfull I'm not really doing anything. All I'm doing is just driving round the city as fast as I can, thats all. I've done a few missions, I specifically enjoy the road rage missions. I like how fluid it is, its like one moment I'm driving then another I'm attacking other cars, at one point I got in the multiplayer by accident and I didn't even realise, thats how seemless it all is.  
So I can't stress enough, if your a PS+ Member in Europe, download this, now!

Yeah i played this on launch and was so impressed with it

#21 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -

Having the "Girlfriend" song in there justifies downloading this onto itself

#22 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

i already own it since launch and almost got all trpoies

is the download stuff free to?

#23 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -
@KaosAngel
The only downloadable stuff is the bikes, but I think that was free anyway.

NO WAY! NO WAY! I THINK YOU NEED A NEW ONE 
 
Oh God, I played Burnout Paradise for just under a million hours and I had that song seared into my brain. I don't wanna like it. It's like Lady Gaga, you don't want to like it, you try not to like it. But god damn it  Poker Face is catchy. It's like a disease. A really catchy, hip disease. Like herpes.

Forget the four Welcome Back games - this has been the best freebie to come out of the PSN disaster. I can't stop playing it. Will almost certainly extend my PS Plus to another 90 days (only £11.99) so I can keep it for another three months.
