SYDNEY, Monday 24th June – Sony Computer Entertainment Australia (SCE Aust.) has confirmed the July line-up for PlayStation®Plus (PS Plus) will include hit titles Battlefield 3™ for PlayStation®3 (PS3™) and Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita), available to members from July 4th in Australia.
Step into the role of an elite U.S. Marine in Battlefield 3™ on PS3 and experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer action across diverse locations from around the globe. Tackle combat on claustrophobic streets, metropolitan downtowns, and varied landscapes in the US, Europe, and Middle East. Powered by the innovative technology of Frostbite 2, Battlefield 3 takes the thrill of a first person shooter to a whole new level.
With PAYDAY™ The Heist, you are tasked to ‘cash in before you cash out’ in this action filled first person shooter game for the PlayStation®Network. Players take on the role of a hardened career criminal executing intense, dynamic heists in constant pursuit of the next “big score”. Navigate diverse urban settings with three partners in crime—controlled by either A.I. or your best buddies in co-op multiplayer. Load out with an array of weaponry and equipment as you embark on a spectacular crime spree through six high-stake heists, including banks robberies, prisoner extractions and armoured car hijackings.
Enter gang territory in open world action-adventure Saints Row: The Third on PS3. Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city.
If it is gaming on-the-go you’re after, grab your PS Vita and get stuck into one of the highest rated action games of all time that is now back and better than ever. Experience a new way to play Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus with motion and touch controls, lots of content, and new challenges to test even the toughest ninja. For centuries, the Dragon Ninjas have protected the world and kept safe the most powerful weapons: the Dark Dragon Blade and the Dragon Sword, but now a powerful evil arises that will test the might of the ninjas. Take Dragon Sword in hand as the young Ryu Hayabusa, and journey to the farthest reaches of the world and beyond to cut down the malevolent fiends!
