View author's profile

Sony has announced the games coming to the EU PS Plus Instant Game Collection this June.

Among the PlayStation 3 games on offer is the decent EA RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, HD’d up classics Shadow of the Colossus and Ico, and From Software’s hard as nails Demon’s Souls.

On Vita, meanwhile, you can grab colourful Ubisoft platformer Rayman Origins and upgraded PS Mini Coconut Dodge Revitalised.

The Instant Game Collection, in case you’ve been in a coma for the past year or so, offers up free games in return for a PS Plus subscription. It’s an increasingly great deal.

In addition to this, there’s also some discounts on offer for subscribers, including 70 per cent off Tekken Tag Tournament 2, 40 per cent off Germinator and a 20 per cent launch discount off Metro: Last Light.

You can find the full list of Instant Game Collection titles, with dates, as well as the outgoing games below, courtesy of the EU PS Blog.

Leaving PS Plus in June:

  • 29th May: Hitman Absolution
  • 29th May: Joe Danger 2
  • 29th May: Dead or Alive 5
  • 5th June: Sine Mora
  • 12th June: Velocity Ultra

Entering PS Plus in June:

  • 29th May: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
  • 29th May: Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection
  • 29th May: Demon's Souls
  • 5th June: Rayman Origins
  • 5th June: Coconut Dodge Revitalised

I recently bought KOA and Demon's Souls... but have always wanted to play ICO/SOTC HD and Rayman Origins.
PS+ is better than your girlfriend saying yes to anal!

Because Sony loves shitting on the US even though we give them a larger majority of their sales, that's why.

I purchased KOA: Reckoning when it first came out, It's a great game, people who have not played it before will have a good 40-80 hours of fun on it.

I might download Demon's Souls to see what all the fuss is about - it can't be THAT HARD........ can it ?!

Wow that's a hell of a plus date for June. Hell I think it may be on of the best updates for EU period. Lots of RETAIL titles there. With only 1 PSN game. Congrats once again EU for getting a bomb update next month. Don't know how you all will have time for these awesome games once Last Of Us drops. ;-)

In US we get one retail game and a bunch of indie games, and EU gets 5 retail games? What a load of crap. This is why I only sub to + when a good game comes out that is worth more than the sub price..

All I really want to say without being a whiney American, is that its weird seeing 3 "retail" titles in one shot. Even if you passed off ico/sotc, demon souls was our big game last month, and they're getting that on top of KoA. So its quality and quantity now? Oh well. My backlog is just daunting right now anyway.

For anyone who has not played it, be sure to download it!!
It really does test your skills as a gamer, even more so if you have not played dark souls.
Once again another great line up on ps+ :)

I have a question, I bought the plus subscriptiona couple of days ago and downloaded Hitman. I know see that Hitman will leave the instant game collection. Will I still be able to play it? is it once you download something you can play it forever? Does it stay in my downloadlist for me to play again in the future?

Since I do not own a Vita I can ignore the games for it, but I will surely download KOA even tough I already have a platinum in it, I wil get Demon's Souls and SOTC too.

Noone should complain about EU getting better stuff since you can get all these dirt cheap retail. I personally think NA is getting the best vita PS+ game yet if not the best overall in blazblue continuum shift extend which is still full price and extremely hard to find retail, at least in the US.

I got a 30-day free trial to PS Plus with my copy of Soul Sacrifice. It might be time to check out the benefits of joining PS Plus. The free game library is a problem, though. Gravity Rush is the only interesting game currently on there that I don't already own and I already have Kingdoms of Amalur. At least with June I'll be able to try out Ico and SotC Collection and Demon Souls.

Demon's Souls is extremely hard until you learn some patience. Once you figure out the enemies, it's actually not that bad. At least on the first run. New game+ and so on is a different story.

Go for KoA guys! You won't regret it if you are a Platinum hunter. Easy and straightforward... BUT you may have to buy the 2 DLCs if you are gunning for 100% completion.

It has been announced that either Assassin Creed III or Uncharted 3 will be available soon. I think it meant the yearly update, but don't quote me on that. Just bought Uncharted 3: GOTY so I REALLY hope that it is AC3, especially as I have wanted to try out that series for a while now.

Nice update EU, enjoy, ICO and SoTC are great, I haven´t play Kingdoms of Amalur but I think is a nice game, well getting it with plus is a win win math

I¨m happy with this week update on US so, stop bitching already, we still have a few weeks to get more stuff, US updates were good this last months. remember when we got around 10 games in 1 month, that was awesome so let EU enjoy their stuff we will get them later as well.

Either I haven't sensed the sarcasm here, or you're going to come up short by around 1,000%
Pretty good collection this month though. Some games here that I've never even thought about buying (but will be happy to try). ICO and I have unfinished (trophy) business. And Rayman will compliment my Vita just nicely.

P.S. I just bought a Vita because of PS PLUS. I got to hand it to Sony. They are awesome. :D
