Holy crap, another really good month!

  • 2nd January – Bioshock 2
  • 2nd January – Guardians of Middle Earth
  • 2nd January – Mortal Kombat – excluding Australia and Germany
  • 2nd January – Gotham City Imposters – Australia and Germany only
  • 16th January – Jet Set Radio (PS Vita)
  • 23rd January – Pinball Arcade (PS Vita)

Ridiculous to get Guardians of Middle Earth so soon. Really looking forward to having a play with that. Also, super glad that we finally get Jet Set Radio Vita to match the recent US Plus offering. Don't forget, Mortal Kombat Vita is free in today's update! Any German's annoyed that you're getting Gotham City Imposters instead of MK? Have you already had that on PS Plus before?

PS Plus is so worth it, had it since last January and it just keeps getting better. My mate Dave just got a PS3 and he got Batman:Arkham City, Vanquish and Limbo for free. That is hard to bet. Also the sales over Christmas they are doing are great. Journey and The Unfinished Swan for £9, steal at that price

Is the discount for Journey PS+ only?

50% is for everyone, 60% off for PS+ I think.

It was clear that they can't release MK here in Germany, it was never officially released here (the developers know why they did not even try that). So I have a UK PS+ membership to get around all that. Maybe I can finally play it online then. Because my boxed 360 copy (import from the UK) had the online pass in it, which was (you guessed it) not redeemable in Germany. And it wasn't redeemable on the UK marketplace either, because it is IP locked. I asked MS, they pointed me to Netherrealm. And Netherrealm referred me back to MS....

But the line-up sounds good, I hope the discount the DLC for Bioshock 2 as well. Minerva's Den is a fine piece of DLC.

Hell yeah. Better than Bioshock 2 main game in my opinion.

Out of those I am only interested in Mortal Kombat. Still makes me feel like I should have gotten a yearly subscription months ago.

I already have MK, but this gives me a reason to try multi-player again.

Wish Gotham City Imposters was for everyone, I liked watching it on the Quick Look / TNT (but not enough to buy it).

Best PS+ thing so has been Batman Arkham City, because it included the Catwoman stuff I couldn't play the first time round because I only rented it.

Grabbed Journey + Unfinished Swan. Getting MK pleases me greatly as I plan on getting some multiplayer action on, especially since I prefer DS3 to 360's controller. Hope to see some fellow Duders playing it too.

Would you say that it's a better add-on than Lair of the Shadow Broker?

:P
