Forums - Sony Discussion - Yet another week that Sony throws it our faces that US PS+ is disappointing compared to other regions.

With only one game.  ICO HD.

Anyone remember June PS+ in Europe? 

Kingdoms of Amalur
ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection
Demon's Souls
Rayman Origins
Coconut Dodge Revitalized

Literally every single month in the US is worse than the months in Europe.  At times we've got one PSN game for Vita, then months later we got the same PSN game for PS3.  Jet Set Radio, Machinarium, etc.  But with ICO/SotC, a first party game, so they're not paying anything out to publishers/developers for the games, they decided to make it blatantly obvious and throw it in our faces. 

That's not all though.  Hitman Aboslution was on sale for Europe April 10th, but they bolded it and made it clear that it would be free for PS+ users the following month.  When has this been done for PS+ users in the US?  Never.  Rayman Origins Vita was on sale last week, it was in the blog, but they didn't have the courtesy or respect to let their fans know that it was going to be free this month for PS+.  The same has happened previously with another game on sale a week before it was free on PS+, though I don't remember the game. 

I don't care what they offer.  I just wish they'd offer parity .  It's bullshit how much preferential treatment one region gets in comparison to another.

So if you live in the US and you're a PS+ member.  Sony is giving you the middle finger each month.

You know their games sell the best in NA right?  

Anyway this is really messed up, should be same games in all regions, and if there's one or two games that they can't do that then only change those games, not the whole list of games and replace it with games of equal value.

In Japan they gave MS the fist. It's not even comparable.

Barely.  There's 4.5 million difference in US and Europe.  Do the millions of US PS+ subscribers deserve to get screwed over just because US is Xbox Land in comparison to other countries though?



If you want to see a lacklustre ps+, look at JP and Hong Kong

PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.


Xbox One: What are you doing Dave?

I've seen similar posts on the Europe forums, complaining about how much better the US PS+ games are.

Prediction (made in 2010) - The PS3 will eventually pass the Wii in lifetime sales. 

Prediction (made in 2010) - The Wii will not come close to the PS2 in lifetime sales

They do.US abandoned Sony this gen and embraced Microsoft while Europe against all odds stuck with Sony despite the price tag and being one year behind.I am talking whole of Europe,East,West,South,North.I am very very proud of continental Europe.

I don't think it's been better every month. I remember a few where I liked the US offerings better.

Anyway, as far as it being the same in every region, I imagine that would be up to publishers. Sony can't force them to do that.

I'm not very happy with the main game this month, that's true, but I've been happy with plenty of others. Complaining about what another region got feels kind of childish, like complaining about a sibling getting a nutty buddy when I got an ice cream sandwich.
