"To celebrate those of you that have been with us from the very beginning, a limited edition gift will be arriving in the mail for those of you that have been part of the journey since the very start. Think you may be one of them? Then keep a close eye on your emails as we’ll be getting in touch today."

Users in Japan who were eligible for the gift received free games such as Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate or Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN while European users were promised a free personalized print detailing all of their achievements on PS Plus.

Lover of all things media, especially music and video games. Been playing drums in the Philadelphia pop-punk scene for years. Final Fantasy VII, Bioshock, GTA V, The Legend of Zelda & Super Smash Bros. are among my favorite games, so I'm all over the place. When I'm not gaming or playing music I'm usually watching way too much anime. Let's talk about stuff!

    Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate... as a REWARD? Is this to make the rest of us who didn't start Day One feel better about missing out? Because bloody hell there are better games they could offer.
