PlayStation Plus Battles: NA vs. EU (7-10-14)
The two regions enter the boxing ring once again, each determined to prove their superiority for the month. Regular readers may recall the result of last week’s fight, but for those who do not (or those who are new), North America won with a knockout blow.
North America enters the ring, cocky and sure that they can win a second week in a row. They launch a hard right hook with Blacklight: Retribution PlayStation Plus Pack (exclusive to PS+, as the name implies, free), catching the EU square in the jaw. As the EU staggers backwards, NA rushes in and quickly jabs them in the gut thrice with DC Universe Online: Hand of Fate, DC Universe Online: War of the Light Part I (Both on PS3 and PS4. PS+: $4.89. Sale: $6.99. Regular: $9.99), and Another World 20th Anniversary Edition (PS Vita, PS3, PS4. PS+: $7.19. Sale: $7.99. Regular: $9.99). The full NA update can be found here.
The EU staggers back, but stays on its feet and glares at the NA’s seemingly futile and pathetic assault. “You shouldn’t mock me,” it growls, then rushes in with a barrage of blows to NA’s gut, utilizing Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! (PS3. £19.99, PS+ gets additional 20% off), Alice: Madness Returns (PS3, £15.99 with PS+ getting an additional 20% discount), and a lot more PS3 games, with 10 more having additional discounts. They finish off with a blow to NA’s gut, forcing them to double over in pain before they deliver a solid uppercut with Dynasty Warriors Next (PS Vita, £15.99 with PS+ gaining an additional 20% discount) and Football Manager Classic 2014 (PS Vita, £14.99 with PS+ gaining an additional 10% discount). They hold off two more Vita assaults, and the full update can be found here.
NA falls to the ground, unconscious, and the referee reaches a 10 count. The EU walks out of the ring, victorious. Which region will win the next week? We’ll find out soon enough, but for now, happy gaming!
