Add two more free games to the Instant Game Collection lineup available to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Worms: Battle Islands are now up for grabs on PlayStation 3 and PSP/PS Vita, respectively. Brothers, the more recent of the two, is the inventive 2013 puzzle adventure from Starbreeze in which players control two brothers simultaneously – one on each thumbstick – as they journey to cure their dying father’s illness. Worms: Battle Islands is the 2010 take on Team17’s turn-based strategy series in which competing teams of well-armed worms attempt to destroy each other.

Today also marks the start of Sony’s PS Vita Play sale, which sees four Vita games released over a four-week period with reduced prices for PS Plus subscribers and store credit rewards for multiple purchases.

The games are priced at $12.99, $39.99, $9.99, and $9.99, respectively, with PS Plus subscribers getting 20-percent off during each launch week. The credit bonus increases with each game you buy: get two, and you score $3 of store credit toward your next purchase; get three, and it’s $6 credit; get all four, and it’s $10 credit.

You can find more info on each game at Sony’s PlayStation Blog, along with specific prices for each PS Plus-discounted game. The promotion starts today with the release of OlliOlli and it continues on into mid-February.
