PlayStation Plus Update for 5/21: Pinball Arcade and Germinator

4 Tuesdays in May doesn’t mean 4 games for PlayStation Plus: We’re getting two titles this week.

The Pinball Arcade is coming to PlayStation 3 and Vita thanks to PlayStation Plus. It’s a great title that recreates classic pinball tables in digital form. The base game comes with Tales of the Arabian Nights, Theatre of Magic, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and Black Hole. There’s over 20 tables available as DLC as well, so I guarantee you that you’ll find a pinball table from the past that you remember. Here’s a trailer featuring another of my favorite tables, Attack From Mars:


This week is a doubleheader for PlayStation Plus, so we’re also getting a Vita exclusive title in Germinator. This looks like a match-3 puzzle game.


As far as discounts go, we have a few interesting things to cover. Metro: Last Light’s Season Pass will be discounted to $11.24, a bundle of Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Darkstalkers Resurrection will go for $10.49, and Men’s Room Mayhem, an upcoming Vita title about directing traffic in the restroom, will be just $.97.

There’s also a sale on Ultimate Editions, which are retail games with all DLC bundled. There are discounts of various levels, but the following Ultimate Editions will be on sale in PlayStation Plus:

Assassin’s Creed III
Batman: Arkham City
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
DMC Devil May Cry
Max Payne 3
Far Cry 3
Persona 4 Arena
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Tekken 6 for PSP and Darksiders will be leaving PlayStation Plus tomorrow. If you don’t have a PlayStation Plus subscription yet, or you need to renew, buying a 1 year membership card from Gamestop will also add $10 to your Sony Entertainment Network wallet.
