It’s July! That means summer! Sun! But we must be careful and enjoy those things in moderation, because… videogames. They need playing. And this month, PlayStation Plus is bringing plenty of content as part of the Instant Game Collection; which means free games as part of your PS Plus membership, not to mention discounts galore on fantastic content throughout the PlayStation Store.

Battlefield 3 is leading the way this month and will be free to download for PS Plus members starting with the 7/2 PS Store update. You’ll also find some truly great savings with this year’s two week long Summer Blast 2013 sale! Read on to learn more about what’s coming in July, as well as the deals in the PlayStation Store this week.

Biggest disappointment since I joined PS+.

 

No love for Vita.

 

Dokuro is a fun little game, but it's a small, short indie game and was already discounted a couple months ago for PS+ users.

And then we get yet another PSP game.

 

Would have much rather gotten Unit 13 like EU, or a bunch of other titles. Can't stand PSP additions. If we're going to get a PSP game, then it should be as a third game, not as one of Vita's two for the month.

FAIL with BF.

 

Thanks for ONLY Dokuro and Summer Sale.

 

Bring more discounts on GREAT CONTENT and STOP giving us "free" garbage.

Never expected? Why not? EU got it this month. We're slowly catching up to EU Plus, so expect to get what they get/got. I'm waiting for Okami HD.

The Vita has gotten a couple of $30+ games the past couple of months while the PS3 has been getting the $15 PSN titles.  The 'high dollar' games alternate occassionally between the platforms.  I don't think we'll ever see a month where there is a $40 title as an IGC freebie on both the Vita and the PS3 released in the same month.

 

Personally, I look forward to giving BF3 a looksie...  never been a console FPS fan, but I'll give it a go for free.

Last month was so much better! Deus Ex and Zero Escape were phenomenol choices. This month is pretty lackluster.
