Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 PS3 Review. The most hardcore fans may be able to sit through the story, it was very static and was just watching people talk and have the odd fight every now and again.

PlayStation Plus

As the changing face of Sony continues, their latest service for PlayStation (PlayStation 3 and Vita) users is a new subscription service called PlayStation Plus which for just $69.95AUD per year, it gives users 14 free games to download and more than 65 games over the full year of your subscription. This is broken down to 26 for PS Vita and 39 for PS3.

Apart from the free games for just $69.95AUD or $19.99AUD for 90-days, it offers some wonderful game discounts of up to 10% off store promotions. As mentioned, the service is not just for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) but also the PS Vita and currently, the following games are available on launch;

  • Quantum Conundrum (PS3)

  • F1 Race Stars (PS3)

  • Guardians of Middle Earth (PS3)

  • Little Big Planet 2 (PS3)

  • MotorStorm Apocalypse (PS3)

  • inFamous 2 (PS3)

  • Gravity Rush (PS3)

  • Dead or Alive 5 (PS3)

  • Mass Effect 3 (PS3)

  • Uncharted Golden Abyss (PS3)

  • Joe Danger 2 the Movie (PS3)

  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS Vita)

  • Gravity Rush (PS Vita)

  • Lumines Electronic Symphony (PS Vita)

To install this service on your PS3 or PS Vita, you simply just head to the PlayStation Store and purchase the subscription service which gives the user a choice or either a 90-day subscription or a 360-day subscription. This gives the user access to the PlayStation Cloud as well to save your game saves online. If only I had this when the PlayStation Network went down during the Heavy Rain release or when by fat boy PS3 died. The online storage is 1GB for PlayStation 3 and 1GB for the PS Vita. It's definitely a great service.

Another interesting feature is the ability to automatic update your PS3 and PS Vita via the subscription service which ensures that not only your games but your systems are always up to date. As a PlayStation Plus member, users will also experience the ability to trial full games for a limited time before you buy them and access to exclusive demos plus beta trials. Some of the exclusives include a plethora of PlayStation Plus only Avatars, Themes and Games. 

In terms of discounts, there's some great savings such as Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers which comes with a recommend retail cost of $49.95AUD has been discounted to $39.96AUD or Dead of Alive Game of the Year Edition knocked down from $12.95AUD to $11.66AUD.

Final Thoughts?

Impulse Gamer will continue monitoring the PlayStation Plus service from Sony and even though it is still in its infancy, Sony have offered users some awesome games and services for just $69.95AUD per year such as Mass Effect 3, Uncharted Golden Abyss and Dead or Alive 5. Add in exclusive only content from Avatars, Game Updates, Demos, Beta Trials and even the ability to trial full games and PlayStation Plus is definitely the next evolutionary step of modern consoles.

Check it out!
