Why Mr. Sony, with these PlayStation Plus freebies you are really spoiling us! As the holidays fast approach, the European PlayStation Plus content for December is looking less 'bah humbug' and more filled with festive cheer, with a bunch of free games that are definitively worth a look.

Heading up proceedings is Batman: Arkham City on PS3, while on PS Vita you can nab Mortal Kombat and puzzler Knytt Underground. If that's not quite enough to scratch your gaming itch, there's also Limbo and Vanquish to consider.

Check out the upcoming PlayStation Plus gubbins for December below, as well as games being removed from Instant Game Collection:

  • 12th December: Big Sky Infinity (PS Vita and PS3)
  • 19th December: Mortal Kombat (PS Vita)
  • 21st December: Knytt Underground (PS Vita and PS3)

Great list... but what about the US?! I have a lot of the games except for Vanquish and the PSN titles. I kind of hope we don't get shafted and get something stupid that sold 500,000 copies that everyone already has.

But then again I don't want crap like Alice: Madness Returns either. I am hoping for the Sonic Generations, Rayman Legends, kind of game that not everyone got but are great and overlooked.

The thing with PS+ free games is they have to have ALOT of DLC, that is where they make their money. Look at Arkham City, there is like $20-$30 of DLC they want you to buy to get the complete package. So with that in mind we will be getting something like Dead Rising 2 or a CoD game like Blops 1.

In the past I didn't whine that EU got better updates, because its usually more personal preference than fairness, but I don't think its even up for despite this time that their store craps on ours. Ah well. I have at least played moat of them so its not a real loss, I just won't be re-playing batman.

@23, you have to choose to download it now while it is in the Instant Collection, and if you do not have HD space ti will error out but add to DL list. As long as it's in your DL list, you can DL it later at anytime (even after it is no longer on Instant Collection).

@23 All you have to do is add it to cart, purchase it but when it come to do the actual download back out and it will register as you have downloaded it.

then when you get bigger HD you can go into your download list and download it for free.
