After the Memorial Day holiday in the U.S. we are back on track for PlayStation Plus updates. As today is Tuesday that means the latest set of PS Plus additions will go live on PSN soon. What's there to check out this week? Well, we're seeing the debut of timed trials among other things.
First, the new Instant Game Collection title is BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend for Vita. This version improved upon console renditions by including story modes for characters that had previously been DLC, as well as tweaking the online multiplayer.
Timed trials have been introduced to allow PS Plus members the opportunity to check out exciting new titles without being forced into weird "demo" snippets. The two games with timed trials are Fuse and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Although this is no doubt very beneficial for PS Plus subscribers, it is odd that they are not open to all PSN users.
Game sales running this week are as follows:
Draw Slasher - $4.19
Germinator - $5.99
Hamilton's Great Adventure - $2.50
Finally, Sleeping Dogs is about to be removed from the Instant Game Collection less than a month after being inducted. Members should probably come to expect that most "big name" games will see similar treatment in the future so be sure to download them in a timely fashion!
