Sony are once again flexing their muscles to prove the benefits of their PS+ service outweigh that of its competitors. While Xbox Live is being openly criticised for its lacklustre benefits in comparison to the recent Sony perks, with the team at Sony appearing to be steadily rebuilding its reputation following the disastrous events of 2011.
With the inclusion of PS Vita PS+ in the cost price of the existing PS3 version and expanding an already extensive library month upon month with premium titles, once again people will be asking a lot of probing questions about the validity of the Live service moving forward, and those on the Sony platforms will be reaping the rewards.
Currently, the instant collection titles include Bioshock 2, Mortal Kombat, Little Big Planet 2, Infamous 2, the underrated Vanquish, Limbo, and the newly released Guardians of Middle Earth on the PS3, with Uncharted Golden Abyss, Mortal Kombat, Gravity Rush, Big Sky Infinity, Pinball Arcade and Jet Set Radio for the Sony Handheld.
Come February’s update their will be some new additions and some new exclusions.
Leaving the instant collection are…
- 6th February: BioShock 2
- 6th February: Ratchet and Clank All 4 One
- 6th February: Cubixx HD
- 13th February: Jet Set Radio
- 20th February: Pinball Arcade
..and coming in February to replace them.

If you are in the group of people still unconvinced by the PS+ line up, now would be a good time to get on board before the old titles are removed and the new titles are released. At £40 for a full year, this past twelve months has seen the PS+ service really deliver in spades on the value for money front.
