PS3 players, it’s time to re-enter the Battlefield

PSN Plus is by far the most amazing feature that has entered the console market in years. For less than the cost of a new game you gain access to a huge library of killer titles that are yours to keep forever, as long as you don’t allow your subscription to lapse.

The scheme has re-invigorated my PS3 usage and I have finally gotten around to trying some classic titles such as Joe Danger and Motorstorm Apocalypse. And now in July the big hitting Battlefield 3 is coming to PSN Plus member for free and for nothing.

I’ve been addicted to Black Ops 2 recently on my Xbox but my Gold membership just expired and while I will obviously renew it I’m going to leave the CoD for a bit and re-enter the Battlefield.

Joining Battlefield 3 this month is Jet Set Radio and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD.

(No they aren’t.. well they are in America but in the Great State of South Africa.. we get these Battlefield 3, Saints Row: The Third and Payday: The Heist.)

So if you are a PSN Plus member make sure to download Battlefield and come blow stuff up.. for all those who still have Battlefield 3 this could be the best time to put it back in the black beast.

Someone asked me last month if PSN Plus is worth it.. after I stopped laughing and pointing at them I told them it was… don’t make me laugh at you to

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    How do I get rid of these nasty roaches? Easy, just burn your house down.

  • Tbone187

    What’s this,,, the Vita has got Metal Slug….!

  • Deano

    And MS gives us Defense Grid hahahaha.
    Really MS really ?

    • Hammersteyn

      LOL Really? Also I’ve heard that voice before…

    • RinceWind

      tell me about it. I am pissed off with that! :( Xcom on PS PLUS, Defence grid on XBL… WHY!?

      • Deano

        I was tempted to start a PS plus account now, but its going to be a waste cos the PS4 is on the way, so im ganna hold off till PS4 then start my PS plus membership.

        • Argentil

          Doesn’t make sense though. you’ll be missing out on the games in the interim.

        • CaptainNemo42

          Do it now. As far as I know you will be able to play all or most PSN+ games on the PS4 through the Gaikai service. It’s the closest we will get to backwards compatibility.

        • Fnuik

          Your PS+ membership will carry over to your ps4 so you won’t be missing out on anything

          • Deano

            But the PS3 games wont be compatible on the PS4 as far as I understand ?

          • Fnuik

            Correct, except if you user their Gaikai service. But if you have a ps3 at the moment, why would that matter?

  • Hammersteyn

    Never tried or particularly wanted BF3 and now I have no excuse not to play. Thanks PS+ I can’t wait to play this online and run around trying… BANG BANG BANG I’m dead.

    • John Ambitious

      Sometimes you’re dead before the bang.

      • Hammersteyn

        I see what they are doing, come next month the servers will be flooded with noobs ready to be pwned by the veterans. Apparently this kinda gaming is supposed to be fun.

        • John Ambitious

          I hear so. After a year I’m still a noob being pounded by veterans.
          Oh wait, no. That doesn’t sound too great.

          • Hammersteyn

            LOL

        • Sageville

          Ooooh, Hammersteyn tags…. me wants!

          • Hammersteyn

            Hehe, Try it!

  • Sageville

    Yeah, I have to admit that PSN really is worth the bucks, R500 a year, thats less than a AAA title and you get a number of AAA titles for free (Battlefield 3 as proof). In addition you also get a bunch of games that I’d never pay money for but are actually proeety good.

    Definitely a must have.

    • RinceWind

      But can you get Grid Defence? trololo

      • Sageville

        Hmmm, your argument is very compelling…

  • RinceWind

    Dammit, I so wish I had a PS3. This PS Plus looks amazing, and I believe you can get Xcom for FREE now… Still, over on XBL I can download a free tower defence game… OH Myyyyyyy

    • Sageville

      I’m so Jealous of XBL!!

      ….said no PS+ subscriber ever.

      • RinceWind

        :( But. but, but… Tower Defence!

        • Sageville

          There there dood, it’ll all be over soon.

          • RinceWind

            Said MS at it’s Killer Instinct reveal. HAHAHAHAHA

          • Sageville

            lol

    • Hammersteyn

      It’s so funny, I still had XCOM sealed on my table when I saw it was free on PS+. Traded it in at BT Games for Last of Us

      • HvR

        How much do you get for newer games? I got GoW: Ascension with my PS3, tried it a few times and it is just not for me.

        • Hammersteyn

          It’s between R150 and R200 for newish games. It’s not that much but at least you can use the creditor for a new game and you help the second hand bin out.

          • Argentil

            Or a PS4 preorder… STOP TEMPTING @hammersteyn:disqus !!! Gawd!

          • Hammersteyn

            LULZ!

      • RinceWind

        That is NOT funny!

        • Hammersteyn

          Well I guess you had to be there :P

      • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

        Thats it Deon. You are DEAD to me!

  • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

    its “too” not “to”
    :P

    • Sageville

      ..and so it begins…

      • Sir Twakkus

        Lol, I am stealing this ^

    • RinceWind

      Ohhhh. You in a particularly self destructive mood then? :P

      • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

        Mrs in hospital, so yes, I’m extra grumpy

        • RinceWind

          shame bro, best wishes

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            tx

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Just for you

      • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

        Hehe, coool

        • HvR

          You should get that as an tattoo.

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Good idea. Not too crazy about the big G

            But the hammer, oh yeah

          • HvR

            The thor ban hammer on the bicep and the word BAN in celtic font as tramp stamp.

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Nay on the tramp stamp, a thousand times nay!

            And the bicep might work better than the ‘other’ place I had in mind.

            (think banhammer wife)

          • HvR

            aaaaahhh, I would’ve actually enjoyed (actually ROFL) you ION with a BAN tramp stamp.

            You can always go for this..

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Don’t let Darryn or Geoff see this. They would freak out.

            Also trampstamp on a dude is just damn wrong.

            That batlogo should be work proudly ON YOUR CHEST!!!

          • HvR

            maybe wrong but funny as hell.

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      Our editor is on leave… sorry

      • Argentil

        Lol. At least it’s evident that he has a vital role to play :P

    • John Ambitious

      Well, it is also “It’s” not “its”.

    • Nick de Bruyne

      Did no one else spot that not only is it supposed to be ‘to’ in the title, but the last word of the article is supposed to be ‘too’. Great balance.

  • Kerrits

    “Joining Battlefield 3 this month is Jet Set Radio and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD.”

    Those are the US titles.
    The EU (and SA) titles are Battlefield 3, Saints Row: The Third and Payday: The Heist.

  • CaptainNemo42

    Gavin, I’m a bit confused, but that is the North American list. I thought we’re getting BF3, Saints Row 3, and Payday: The Heist. With Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus and Unit 13 on PSVITA. That is the EU list and as far as I can remember, we’ve always been the same as the EU people.

    Games leaving will be Kingdoms of Amalur, Lord of the Rings: War in the North, The Cave, Rayman Origins (PS Vita) and Coconut Dodge: Revitalised (PS Vita).

    And this will only be available from tomorrow (3 July). That is what I know.

    • Argentil

      PSN update is on the 4th I think, but you’re correct otherwise. We’ll be getting the EU selection (which is better imo). Keen for Payday and Ninja Gaiden.

      • CaptainNemo42

        I got the 3rd as the date, but what is a day between friends, I’m still fighting my current PSN+ induced backlog.

      • CaptainNemo42

        And yeah, we get a much better deal than the Mericans. I can’t wait for Saints Row 3 (haven’t played it yet) and since I got a VITA, Ninja Gainden is also looking pretty good.

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      well bugger.. hey a least we are still getting BF3 though.

      You can see I’m relatively new to PSN+

      • CaptainNemo42

        It’s okay, I was just worried there for a moment. Because I’m really looking forward to Saints Row.

  • Dylan Bobjohnjoe

    Purchased crash team racing last night, kept giving me an error that equates to corrupt data when I tried to install it………eventually settled on crying myself to sleep.

    • Argentil

      Is your harddrive full? That was happening to me with a full HDD.

      • Dylan Bobjohnjoe

        Nope, also installed a new drive yesterday, which may be the cause, its a brand new ps. dion wired specialmajig.

    • CaptainNemo42

      That happend to a friend of mine yesterday as well. And he is new to PS3 and PSN+

      • Dylan Bobjohnjoe

        As am I. Got PSN+ last night actuallly. And I can’t seem to find any definitive solutions. I am gonna try stacking ctr and hoping one of the downloads works.

        • CaptainNemo42

          You can try putting your PS3 in DMZ mode. I had some issues a while back in trying to find matches in Online play.

          This guide is an easy solution and pretty simple

          http://bit.ly/161im3r

          Also, try changing your DNS settings on both your router and PS3. Try the Google Public DNS: Primary – 8.8.8.8, Secondary – 8.8.4.4

          Hope it helps.
