The Next PlayStation Plus Update is a Devilishly Good Deal

December 2, 2010 Written by Corey Schwanz

PlayStation Plus is lauded by some, criticized by others. Naysayers shall soon be silenced with the next two weeks having some great content.

Next week on December 7th, the first half of the Plus update will drop. Coming as the “pre” expansion to LittleBigPlanet 2, the PlayStation Move-centric Sackboy Prehistoric Moves will be hitting the PSN a week early for Plus subscribers, and completely free.

And that’s only the beginning. A week later on the 14th of December, the bigger half will hit. Earlier in the year, our friends across the pond in Europe got Same & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse for free in their PlayStation Plus mailboxes. The deal for the five episode adventure seemed so good that PlayStation heads in San Fransisco wanted to bring it to the title to us too! That’s a $34.99 value, for free. That alone is 70% of the PS Plus subscription fee. Crash Team Racing will be the PS One Classic as well as the usual discounts. Fieldrunners is on the list for PSN Minis but if I’m not mistaken…didn’t we get that as a Plus item several months ago? Oh well, check out the full list for the next two weeks below!
