From it looks of it the US store is the winner, and it gets content every week unlike the other stores. While the Japanese and Hong Kong stores seem to be the most stringent on content released. So are you happy with your PlayStation Plus subscription?


  • KillerApp

    Too bad you can’t choose what game you want free. I would really like Zen Pinball, but I am in the USA….

    Make it the same all around or give us choices please!

  • Best summary so far i love it.. Keep’em comming 😉

  • Lewbinski

    I’m from the UK so I fall under Europe and I’m not really that happy I hate how Hulu is America only I would love that over here so I’d love to see it the same world wide

  • dogmanx23

    I would like Zen Pinball also but not pay for it lol.

    I’m sure in time it’ll become available.

    That Critter Crunch was pure crack I couldn’t stop playing it 🙂 I’m loving PSN + so far

  • KC

    Sucks to live in Europe..

  • DeadSpider

    Thank’s for the list… it really makes it more clear as to how much of a deal PSN+ really is now, and will be in the long run.

  • ifhd

    US got 3 months for free

  • ifhd

    I have a EU psn+ and I did not get LittleBigPlanet

  • 1word

    If you get DC Universe Online for free by having it I will get it. Sony needs to give you 4 rental movies a week or 8 a month and I’m all for it.

  • David

    Sony has always live europe behind the difference of the european store and the US store its huge and Plus provite. We paid the same and we don’t have the same content, the subscription of Qore it’s 25$ and we don’t have that, don´t telme tha its note possivel, uploading a video it’s hease. So in my opinion don´t buy the European Plus its not worted of your money.

  • Kevin

    I’m in the UK and I love PlayStation+ but it’s not right that every region gets different stuff. It’s very disheartening seeing the US store get loads of stuff each week and we get nothing! I don’t understand why there can’t be 1 service worldwide with the same content!

    If it carries on like this for 12 months I will not renew, I will just subscribe to PlayStation+ on my American account!

    I’m not sure if you’re a child, a non-english-speaker, or just a moron.
    My guess is all of the above.

    Sorry you live in Europe. Come to the States (with a visa), life is good here.

  • David

    I’m portuguese is difficult to me right in english, its eisy for you because you live in the state, but you understand what i was saying so, no problem. And stop with the insults, ok.

    Quit being a close-minded judgmental prick.
