These are: Sleeping Dogs, Quantum Conundrum, and F1 Race Stars for the PS3, and Wipeout 2048 and Lumines: Electronic Symphony for the PS Vita.
Check out the descriptions of the new titles below, via PS blog.
Sleeping Dogs - This action adventure game from our friends at Square Enix takes you deep into the violent criminal underworld of vibrant, neon-lit Hong Kong. You’ll assume the role of Wie Shen, an undercover cop looking to take down the Triads from the inside. You’ll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organisation, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover.
F1 Race Stars - The Plus service has been a little shooter-heavy over the last couple of months so in the interest of diversity why not kick back, relax, get some friends round and have a good time with this addictive multiplayer racer.
Quantum Conundrum – It sends you on a quest of inter-dimensional problem-solving to rescue your mad-scientist uncle, who’s gone missing somewhere in his labyrinthine mansion. The professor’s latest invention, the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device (or ISD), should prove quite useful in navigating the obstacles in each room – such as death lasers and pools of skin-melting "science juice."
Wipeout 2048 - Reborn for PS Vita to take advantage of the system’s unique features and dazzling OLED screen you can race up to eight players simultaneously online and compete for first place on the global leaderboards.
Lumines: Electronic Symphony – It's the first PS Vita outing for this popular franchise, bringing together block-dropping puzzle action with an all-new 3D graphics engine and some of the biggest electronic music artists around.
Besides the free games, PS Plus subscribers from the PAL region can also get exclusive discounts for Just Cause 1 and 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dust 514 Mercenary Pack, and the Alien Breed Trilogy.
In case you're still not convinced to join Plus, Sony is offering a special discount for a 90-day membership starting on February 9, as PS3 or PS Vita owners can get three months of Plus for just €9.99/£7.99.
