Today on PlayStation Plus – 5/8/12
Today’s PlayStation Plus update, is really nothing to get excited about. Coming off the heals of last week’s expansive update, this week we see only three games – Datura, Need for Speed, and Saints Row – make their way to PS+. Having said that, if you are in need of a new experience, then the headliner for this week’s update is just what you need!
From the creators of Linger in Shadows, Datura is something you’ll have to try out. Like Linger in Shadows, Datura takes you on an adventure through multiple levels that require you to solve puzzles. Datura’s setting is a forest in which you will have different choices to make as time progresses, these choices will play then determine events throughout your playthrough.
Shortly after the events of Saints Row 2, the 3rd Street Saints built an empire, making themselves recognizable to everyone. The fame and riches that came with these new accommodations are short-lived when a bank heist goes wrong and our three protagonists land themselves in prison. They are shortly bailed out by the Syndicate, an international crime organization, and after escaping their clutches, you must take down the Syndicate to reclaim your territory. Saints Row: The Third now has a 1hr trial and a discount 20% for PlayStation Plus members.
Need for Speed; The Run is another entry in the ever-popular, arcade-style racer. This game adds more cars, tracks, a new city, and much more to satisfy your need for speed.

Because of the length of this post, I’ve decided to switch the “Value of PS+” series to Saturdays, this way, it gives me a chance to create a more in-depth article that hopefully will show you what exactly you’re spending, saving, could have spent, could have saved, and how that compares to the prices of the regular PlayStation Store. I apologize for the abrupt change.
