We like free stuff. And we like good stuff. So when someone offers us free stuff and good stuff, we can%26rsquo;t help but be excited.
Such is the case with the %26ldquo;First Annual PlayStation Network PLAY%26rdquo; initiative announced by SCEA today. It%26rsquo;s a bit confusing for simpler folk like us, but we%26rsquo;ve parsed the details of this deal so you don%26rsquo;t have to.
Starting Aug. 9, gamers can pre-order select games. Each pre-order comes with theme for the PS3. And each game, when purchased, comes with an additional gift. Even better: PlayStation Plus members (anyone? anyone?) will receive an automatic 20% off any game that%26rsquo;s part of the PLAY lineup.
Finally, the goodest part: Buy all four games by Sept. 19 and you%26rsquo;ll get a voucher code for Payday: The Heist, a game we called %26ldquo;the next big thing for Left 4 Dead fans%26rdquo; in a recentpreview.
Here%26rsquo;s a quick look at the four games in this initiative:
Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition (Aug. 23). Gift: Unlock Gill immediately without having to beat the game with every character.
The Baconing (Aug. 30). Gift: Additional co-op character, Roesha %26ndash; One Bad Mutha.
BloodRayne: Betrayal (Sept. 6). Gift: Exclusive dynamic theme and virtual item for Home avatar. (And with the 360 version delayed till Oct. 5, this is also a rare third-party PSN timed exclusive!)
Renegade Ops (Sept. 13). Gift: Vehicle %26amp; Character Pack including two new vehicles and special weapons.
