PlayStation Plus Subscribers Get Free Games (Including LittleBigPlanet)

Sony Europe has an effective way to convince people to sign up for its new PlayStation Plus service: give away free copies of one of the PS3's best titles, LittleBigPlanet.

Yes, anyone in PAL regions signing up for the premium 12-month subscription to Sony's PlayStation Network between June 29 and August 3 will get a free downloadable copy of the game, which is the users to keep (as in, it's not linked to your PS+ subscription, so you won't lose it if you don't renew).

As this offer has only appeared on the European PlayStation blog, we're calling it PAL-only for now. If the offer is also good for North American PS3 owners, we'll let you know.

Aside from that special offer, Sony has also disclosed one of the biggest benefits of being a PS+ subscriber, and that's a regular supply of free games. Those paying a monthly fee will be able to download at least four games a month free of charge: one PSN title, two minis and one PS1 Classic.

Discounting the minis, which are usually rubbish, that's still 12 PSN games and 12 PS1 classics a year for your subscription. That's a great deal.



    And for people who have already bought LBP in the last 2 years? What do we get? Apparently theres a few of us...

      You get to have enjoyed two years of gaming and the ability to sell or trade in your copy of LBP.

    PS Plus just keeps getting better and better

    they should offer a blanket discount for psn like 25% off everything

    How much is it for 12 months?


    sounds very good... what do you get for your xbox live subscription?

    Great Idea! Except that its LBP and not somthing I like. This would be a lot better if we can choose what game we want to get for free. I won't sign up until there is a game I like.

    I need a new hard drive for my PS3!

    (scuttles off to find even more storage)

    "As this offer has only appeared on the European PlayStation blog, we’re calling it PAL-only for now."

    Is this valid for Australia too? and how much?

    If anyone actually clicked the link, it tells you the prices.

    1-YEAR 90DAYS
    Australia AUD 69.95 20.95

    Which is a DAMN good deal if you ask me.

    @ Ema - Australia is part of the Pal region - so yes. It is available in Australia.
