The latest batch of games for the PlayStation Plus Instant Game collection have been announced for the US and Europe, and once again it seems that American gamers are getting the worse end of the deal.
Over in Europe, September’s PS+ games are already available for download, and provide many hours of gaming goodness if you haven’t previously bought the titles on offer. First off for the PS3, as announced during Gamescom, Assassins Creed III is now available for free with a PlayStation Plus account. Joining it for lucky European gamers is the Jak and Daxter HD collection, and finally the Indie title; Stealth Inc. A Clone in the Dark. The Vita will see the addition of Urban Trial Freestyle and new Little King Story, with those games also being available for download right now.
Over in the US things don’t look quite so rosy, but there is still a decent amount of games on offer. The PS3 will see the addition of the Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection and ICO HD, as well as the shooter Galaga Legions DX. Things look better for the Vita on the American side of the pond however, with the magnificent Rayman Origins joining the PSP version of GTA: Liberty City Stories (playable on the Vita). Interesting that both of those franchises have new editions out over the next few weeks! Marketing move by any chance?
The US PS+ titles are available for download at various times throughout the month – so keep checking the PS Store for updates. As ever PS+ remains a cracking deal with a constant stream of decent titles, but how do you guys in the US feel about Europe usually having the better side of the deal? Resident Evil Chronicles for example is a nice and surprising addition, but really only worth the download if you have a PS Move sitting around doing nothing much.
