Since this month sucks for Vita users, I think the PS+ staff needs some guidance:

 

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection - EU already got it. Would be the ideal candidate because 1) It's not Cross-Buy, so PS3 users with the collection already are probably hesitant to buy it even if they'd really like to play it on their Vita, 2) it would introduce people to the MGS series that may never have played it, which would be very beneficial if a future MGS title is in the works for Vita, and 3) it's highly rated and provides hours upon hours of gameplay with the multiple titles rolled into one.

LBP Vita - Since LBP2 left the PS3 IGC, it would be the perfect time to add this to the IGC. If Gravity Rush and/or Uncharted:GA leave the IGC, it's also a big enough title to be used for PS+ promo materials. It may also provide a bit of good marketing/promoting for Media Molecule's upcoming Vita-exclusive Tearaway. One of the reasons I bought Guacamelee! on Day One was because I absolutely loved Drinkbox's earlier title, Mutant Blobs From Space, which was in the Vita IGC back in November.

Escape Plan or Little Deviants - lumping them both together because my reasoning behind them is the same: both titles were part of the original marketing of the Vita, particularly shown off because of their utilization of Vita's exclusive features (such as the back touchscreen). Reviews were only mediocre and anyone who wanted them probably already owns them, so offering them for "free" wouldn't hurt future sales that much.

Rayman Origins - Rayman Legends has been confirmed for Vita, so this would be a good way to get people interested, similar to how Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus was offered prior to NGSP2's release.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings - LEGO Batman 2 has a bundle, otherwise I'd say that since LOTR is newer. But similar to Rayman Origins, with LEGO Marvel  Super Heroes expected at the end of the year, it would be a good way to get interest.


Ok people keep asking for games such as LBP Vita and Escape Plan and its pointless. Those games are made by Sony and will not be included until they rotate their games out most likely in Nov/Dec. Stop expecting them to be free every month its not going to happen.


Notice how I said if UGA or GR left, LBP Vita would be a worthy replacement. And you are completely wrong about Escape Plan - that was developed by Fun Bit Interactive, a third party studio.

Ok.. in an attempt to get a jump on the download for Battlefield 3, I went and clicked to download the full game trial. Now it's downloading, but the icon has the bag on it and says I purchased the game today in my downloads list.
Anyone can clarify for me whats going on here?

It's a little confusing when it comes to downloading full game trials (which is what you are actually downloading), since the store does not differentiate the full game trial from the full game.  They are technically the same item, the only difference being that the FGT carries a 60 minute license, and the full game does not (though the PS+ license will only grant you access to the game until the end of your current subscription).  The red bag will show from now on, even though you only 'purchased' the FGT.
