Gearbox Software's 2012 acclaimed shoot-and-loot game Borderlands 2 is now free for PlayStation Plus subscribers, Sony has announced. The game is available today from the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation 3, but not PlayStation 4.

PlayStation Plus is Sony's subscription service for accessing a library of free and discounted games each month. The service is $9/month or $50 for the year, and one membership works across PS3, PS4, and PlayStation Vita.

This week also marks Week Two of the PlayStation Store Holiday Sale. Various digital games are on sale (with even greater discounts for PS Plus subscribers), including the Tomb Raider Bundle ($15), MLB 13 The Show ($20), and NHL 14 ($30).

Time is also running out for PS Plus subscribers to get Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Pinball (PS3 and PlayStation Vita) for free, as the downloadable game leaves the Instant Game Collection on December 17.
