It's time to find out what's coming in January's PlayStation Plus subscription! The big change-over for PS3 and Vita happens on Christmas Eve so be ready for it, especially if you haven't downloaded Grid 2, Dragon's Dogma or Sonic and Allstars Racing yet!
Here are the details, taken from Chris Howe's blog update...
Hi everyone! It’s time again to share details of all the goodies coming your way as part of PlayStation Plus over the next month. We’ve got a brand new PS4 game, two huge PS3 titles and two cracking PS Vita games to keep you entertained over the festive period.
PlayStation 4 (From 8th January)
Making its console debut is the beautifully crafted Don’t Starve from Klei Entertainment (Shank, Mark of the Ninja). Set in a world of science and magic, Don’t Starve is a wilderness survival game where you play as Wilson an intrepid gentleman scientist who is trapped by a demon and transported into this dark and mysterious world.
You must learn to exploit the environment and the inhabitants you will encounter if you want to have any chance of getting back home!
And don’t forget, a PlayStation Plus membership will also provide you with access to PS4 online multiplayer.
PlayStation 3 (From 24th December)
First up on PS3 this month is DmC, Capcom’s latest entry in their Devil May Cry series. You play as Dante, a young man caught between worlds. The action plays out in Limbo City, a place secretly controlled by all-powerful demons. It’s a cracking action title, and a real work out for the thumbs – just the thing for burning off that Christmas excess.
Next up, I’m pleased to announce that PS Plus users will be able to download the brilliant Borderlands 2. In this acclaimed sequel, you jump into the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation.
PS Vita (From 24th December)
First up, from our very own Japan Studio, the simply breathtaking Soul Sacrifice. Prepare yourself for a brutal combat experience where every decision made has significant consequence. You take on the role of a slave who stumbles upon a forbidden book that allows its readers to relive epic battles between sorcerers and monsters of the past. In order to use the magic during fierce battles, the player must be willing to make a sacrifice in exchange – ranging from personal belongings, a limb, or even a life. What price will you pay for power?
Last but certainly not least we have beautiful 2D fighter, Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend. The latest title in the franchise offers the most substantial BlazBlue experience to date including all previous DLC characters as standard, the Calamity Trigger & Continuum Shift stories as well as brand new game modes, new stories to play through, and the all new playable character, Relius Clover. Relius Clover and his robotic puppet Ignis, join the fight with 23 epic scenarios to play through.
On top of the great games mentioned above PS Plus members will also have access to huge discounts this month so keep checking the PS Blog for regular updates. Also, don’t forget The 12 Deals of Christmas sale is in full swing, so stop by PlayStation Store to grab a bargain!

Remember, if you’ve not got access to your PS4, PS3 or PS Vita then you can also buy through our online store .
If you're a lucky PS4-ian, you can now download Don't Starve from the PlayStation Store for free if you have a Plus Subscription...
Don't forget that if you don't have a PS4 but think you might have one at some point in the future and intend to keep on subscribing to Plus between now and then, you can add Don't Starve (along with Resogun) to your shopping cart and check out using the web store via the link above, and then when you do finally get a PS4, it'll be ready and waiting for you in your download list. That's what I'm doing.
