PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to pick up Jet Set Radio HD free as part of the Instant Game Collection this week, and receive a 20 percent discount on pre-orders for four upcoming PlayStation Network titles, Sony announced today.
The PlayStation Vita version of Jet Set Radio HD was a launch title for PS Plus on the handheld last November, but this is the first time the PlayStation 3 version of the street-skating game will be available free on Sony's subscription service. It regularly costs $9.99. Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD joined the Instant Game Collection last week, and other games set to be added this month include Dokuro and Metal Slug XX.
The PS Plus deals continue with the PlayStation Move adventures Sorcery, Carnival Island and Datura, which will each be on sale for half price — $5 for the first two games, and $2.50 for the latter. Plus members will also be able to pick up the PS Vita title Draw Slashers at a 20 percent discount, $3.19 instead of $3.99.
