Hello everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the new content that arrived on PlayStation Plus at the beginning of December. As we move through the gift-giving season I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to inform you of all the awesome content changes you can expect in January.

 

But before that, I wanted to let you know about a great offer that starts today on the PlayStation Store. As soon as the store has been updated, the PS Plus 1 year membership will be available at an incredible 25% off its usual price!

 

Until 9th January you can get a whole year’s subscription for a one-off payment of only £29.99/€37.49. And remember – you can stack your membership so you can treat yourself even if you’re an existing member!

 


Right, onto this month’s games. Kicking things off is your lead title for January – BioShock 2, diving into the PlayStation Plus service from 2nd January for four weeks.

Developed by the talented teams at 2K Marin and Digital Extremes, this first person shooter takes you back to the underwater dystopia of Rapture. You’ll step into the boots of the original ‘Big Daddy’ in a thrilling adventure that see you tracking down the evil force responsible for snatching girls for the Atlantic coastline.

 

With BioShock Infinite on the horizon, this is the perfect opportunity to get your aim back in.

 

 

The next title entering the service, also on 2nd January, is the acclaimed Guardians of Middle Earth from our friends at Warner Bros – an authentic multiplayer online battle arena game set in The Lord of the Rings universe and specially crafted for console systems. Take a look at the trailer to see it in action.

The final PS3 title entering the service on 2nd January is Mortal Kombat. Those of you who have a PS Vita might already be taking advantage of this title on the move but now you can also enjoy this classic beat ‘em up on your TV screens too.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer our friends in Australia and Germany this game due to regional rating issues so as a replacement we’ve secured Gotham City Impostors in those two territories. Hatched from the twisted minds at Monolith Productions, this multiplayer first person shooter pits violent vigilantes against crazed criminals in open warfare on the streets of Gotham City.

Moving onto PS Vita, the first game joining the service on 16th January is the heavily requested Jet Set Radio. You must join up with the GGs – an up-and-coming street gang in the futuristic city of Tokyo-to fighting for self-expression. Rolling through crowded urban environments on magnetically-driven inline skates, you take control of gang leader Beat and his growing posse of artists as they steal turf from local gangs by covering the city with graffiti.

Secondly, entering the service on 23rd January is the PS Vita version of The Pinball Arcade. This impressive title really nails the retro score-chasing thrills of the pinball machines of old. Check out the trailer for a closer look.

As usual, you can also expect exclusive PS Plus discounts on lots of titles, including Foosball 2012, Wakeboard HD and Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD. We’ll update you on these offers in the weekly Store posts.

 

In summary:

Leaving PS Plus:

  • 2nd January – Batman: Arkham City
  • 2nd January – Bulletstorm
  • 2nd January – Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition
  • 16th January – Mortal Kombat (PS Vita)
  • 23rd January – Knytt Underground

Joining PS Plus:

  • 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)

 

If you are not currently a Plus member, visit our PlayStation Plus site to find out more about the service. Here you’ll learn all you need to know about the Instant Game Collection, which gives members access to at least 14 games at any one time, and over 65 games across the course of a 12 month subscription – all for a one-off payment of just £39.99.

 

But don’t forget from 19th December until 9th January you can claim 25% off this price by purchasing through the PlayStation Store.

 

That’s all from me this year folks! I’ll be back with more updates in 2013! Bring it on!

Hopefully the PS+ games will be in the correct store section by then, unlike now with Knytt Underground & Mortal Combat ( Vita ) not being in the PS+ section

Re: PlayStation Plus Update – January 2013

I wasn't aware of the fact you can stack your PS Plus membership either! I'll definitely be taking advantage of the 25% off offer in the New Year.

I'd also prefer Gotham City Imposters instead of MK.
