Today's PlayStation Store update holds a number of excellent perks for PlayStation Plus members. If you haven't jumped in yet, the Assassin's Creed Revelations beta has begun, and is available for Plus members. In addition, today's update grants free access to five games: Plants vs. Zombies, Astro Tripper, Altered Beast, Bashi Blocks (Minis), and Jet Moto (PS1).
Plus subscribers will be able to get additional games as part of their membership later in the month. However, the most noteworthy additions come from the Resident Evil franchise.
On September 20th, all three PS1-era Resident Evil games will be free to download for PlayStation Plus members. That includes Resident Evil Director's Cut, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3.
In addition, the remastered HD versions of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica X will be half-off exclusively for Plus members. That means you'll be able to get every major RE game, from 1-4 for only $20 total with a Plus membership. That's a pretty fantastic deal. The discounts will go into effect starting September 20th.
