The EU PS Plus July showcase trailer is above, while the US trailer has been added at the bottom of this report.


Sony's new regimented Instant Game Collection release schedule comes into affect as of July 2, seeing six games (two each for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita) released each month and available for one month only.

As before, games that a PS Plus subscriber downloads during its free period will be able to access those games indefinitely, so long as they hold an active PS Plus subscription.

Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate
Trine 2: The Complete Story
