This week’s PlayStation Plus Update is a somewhat disappointing one as there is no free content for PS3 owners. Instead, PS Vita players get Plants vs. Zombies at no extra cost to their subscription as well as 50% off a number of first-party titles in celebration of the handheld’s one-year anniversary.
Interestingly, Plants vs. Zombies is currently the App of the Week on the iTunes App Store so many people will already have access to a free, portable version of it.
Here’s this week’s PlayStation Plus Update in full:
Instant Game Collection
Plants vs. Zombies (PS Vita) – PSN Price: $10.49, Free for PS Plus members
- Popcap’s irreverent take on the real time strategy genre is yours to play free on your PS Vita starting this week as a PS Plus member. At first glance, you may think it’s just another cute strategy game. Get your hands on it, and you’ll find an incredible amount of strategy that relies on everything from picking the right plants, determining their placement, and decisions while under fire from masses of zombies. The PS Vita version sports a ton of great features including co-op multiplayer, a ton of modes, and even some mini-games to keep you busy, making putting Plants vs. Zombies down an pleasantly tough proposition.
Retro/Grade (PS3) – PSN Price: $9.99; PS Plus Price: $2.44
Retro/Grade Soundtrack – PSN Price: $7.99; PS Plus Price: $1.74
- The game that turned rhythm games upside down is now available at an irresistible price for PS Plus Members! Starting at the end of the game and working your way back to the sound of head-bobbing retro tunes, you’ll need to ensure the pilot makes it alive through his backward journey through time. With 10 dazzling ‘backwards’ worlds, epic boss fights, and a seriously fantastic soundtrack, it’s a deal that everyone should jump on. If you like the music, we also went ahead and put the soundtrack on sale as well! You can grab it for $1.74 on the PS Store as a PS Plus member.
