October is nearly here, and we’re all getting ready to watch the leaves change while sipping toddies and wearing earth tone sweaters. But why go outside when such a great line up of games is coming to your PS3 and Vita? The games for the Playstation Plus Instant Game Collection were announced today and as usual, it’s a ton of excellent content free to download for Plus subscribers.

October will see the massively epic RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning bring its 100+ hours of gameplay to the PS3. The beautiful HD remake of Shadow of the Colossus will also be part of the deal, bringing it’s exploration and giant battling to Plus user gratis. Poker Night 2 probably isn’t a big motivator for most folks, but it’s a fun addition especially since GLaDOS is the dealer and a host of characters from gaming and pop culture are the players (including Brock Samson from Venture Brothers, and EvilDead’s Ash!).

Finally the PS3 will see the cult indie hit, Hotline Miami. The bloody top down shooter will be available for both Sony’s home console and it’s PS Vita handheld. And that’s not all the love the Vita gets either! The excellent side scrolling shooter Sine Mora’s Vita incarnation will be free too!

Phew! That’s a pretty sweet haul! Fore more info, Sony’s announcement is below:
