Gotham City Impostors – January 2nd (Australia and Germany only)

Jet Set Radio (PS Vita) – January 16th

Moving onto PlayStation Plus-only discounts, you can expect to see Foosball 2012, Wakeboarding HD, and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD cheaper at some point in January, though specific pricing wasn’t announced.

For anyone who currently doesn’t have PlayStation Plus, or anyone who wants to extend their membership. a full 12 month subscription card has been discounted on the PSN to £29.99/€37.49, a savings of 25%. This deal will run until January 9th, 2013 and is something you should definitely take advantage of.
