Full PlayStation Plus line-up for January revealed [update]
Update: Sony's confirmed North America's PS Plus line-up for January is the same as Europe's. We've updated the post to reflect that and other details.

We already knew Infamous: First Light and The Swapper were coming to the Instant Game Collection next month, but now we've got the full January PlayStation Plus line-up. The two PS3 freebies headed to the continent are Prototype 2 and DuckTales: Remastered, while the Vita duo is Whoa Dave and Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition.

The line-up hits the PS Store stateside on Tuesday, January 6, 2015. As ever, Europe joins the PS Plus party the day after.

Three of next month's freebies fall under Sony's cross-buy label, so that means the Plus versions unlock those games on other platforms. Mysterious puzzle-platformer The Swapper, for example, is cross-buy across all three PlayStation platforms. Duke Nukem 3D players can kick ass on PS3 and chew bubblegum on Vita, and the fast-paced arcade pixels of Whoa Dave are cross-buy between Vita and PS4 - however, the PS4 version of Whoa Dave is being released at a later date.

Finally, a wee reminder Infamous: First Light is a standalone expansion, meaning you don't need to own Infamous: Second Son to play it. Also, it's not lost on us that Prototype and Infamous, two open-world action series that seemed to lock horns a fair bit (whether they wanted to or not), are quietly sharing the same Plus-space. Good for them.
