EU PlayStation Plus content for August and September

Submitted by on Wednesday, 4 August 20102 Comments

The news is in: over at the EU PlayStation blog, Sony have announced the content that will be available on PlayStation plus throughout August and September. As expected, it’s a mix of PSN games, minis, PSOne Classics, full game trials, DLC, dynamic themes and avatars.

The pick of the bunch is the complete season of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, an excellent point-and-click adventure game from Telltale Games.

James Thorpe, the PlayStation Network Product Manager, says Sam & Max and Abe’s Oddysee were games that PlayStation Plus users were calling for:

“In this content list and the months to come, we will be using the suggestions of game content you gave use recently on here, and trying to include the most requested games wherever we can. We’ve already acted on some of your suggestions and have put fan favourites Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and Sam and Max: The Devil’s Playground (the entire season) into the games you get.”

There have been some great discounts as well: PlayStation Plus users will get a 50% reduction for both Metal Gear Solid and Warhawk, and a full game trial will be available for Warhawk if you’re still in doubt. Be aware, there is some confusion regarding the discount for Warhawk as it is listed elsewhere in the list as having a 20% reduction. We’ll update this as soon as we have clarification.

PlayStation Plus owners will also get a 24 hour timed exclusive demo for Mafia II. This will be pushed to your system on Tuesday 10th August, if you have automatic downloads turned on, otherwise you can access via the PlayStation Plus section of the PlayStation Store.

James Thorpe has encouraged everyone to go over to the PlayStation Blog and let his team know what games you would like to see. He has also told us to stay alert for “some more exclusive, surprise treats coming to Plus in August and September.”
