3 Awesome Games Free on PSN

Everyone likes free stuff right? Well Ben from BagoGames has noted 3 must-downloads from the PSN store that cost diddly squat. Sweet. (Casual games, DC Universe Online, Jetpack Joyride, Killzone 3 Multi-play, PS3, Tag Invalid)

Totally saw all three of these games coming.
StrongMan  +   985d ago
And that's one reason why PSN is the best service in gaming by far.

On PSN you don't pay a dime and get free stuff and features but with the competition you pay to get free features.

One of the really great things these online services have achieved is to have changed general opinion on the whole digital distribution model. It works and file size is way less of an issue than it use to be.

Sorry but steam is the best service, especially when it comes to sales. The deals steam has are just incredible.
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   985d ago
Seriously bro? Why instigate stuff? Off topic and flamebait right there.
cpayne93  +   985d ago
Wow that's a lot of disagrees. I barely game on pc but even I can see steam is a better service. Loads faster and the deals are always better.

@cpayne93 i dont consider Steam a service more like an online store , you don't pay to use Steam but i agree PSN+ is The best Console Service Out there add Party chat system and its 99% perfect

Such a troll comment.

@ Good_Guy_Jamal & rankftw

What cpayne93 said isn't off topic at all. He was replying to a comment by StrongMan in which he stated PSN was the best gaming service around. cpayne93 merely countered that with his view that Steam is the best service in gaming. Not flamebait either but more like what could potentially be a good opening to a debate on which service offers more value for money.

But this is N4G so instead of a good debate breaking out all you get is a lazy "such a troll comment" or "flamebait". Sigh.

@ 2pacalypsenow

"i dont consider Steam a service more like an online store , you don't pay to use Steam"

You don't pay to use PSN either, but just like PSN, Steam allows you to buy online content and launch it through Steams portal. They're very similiar services if you leave out the option of paying for PS+.

Nintendo and Valve offer a free service the only one whose charging for online play and access to services like Netflix is Microsoft.

I'm a Sony Fanboy, and even I cannot stand the PSN in the shape its in now. I use the Playstation Network Site now since its faster.

The PSN store is a complete joke from load time to how many times I have to click everything over, and over. And the search engine, did they let a five year old decide it?

They took out the option of downloading while running Netflix, yeah its alittle thing but still. why even remove it?

Like I said, I found an option of just using the Playstation Network website, diffrent page set up, classic type in search, and FAST.
SolidStoner  +   984d ago
great deal, best part that you dont have to be PSN+ owner to download them... Killzone 3 multiplayer + latest ad-on maps..

Use Search Button if you cant find it! I could not find any of these 3 free games until I used search!!!
Rebo00  +   984d ago
I suggest you get a better internet connection as the new PSN Store (SEN or whatever they're calling it now) works fine for me.
No slowness, no issues, so it's your side not theirs that has the problem.
x2FKx  +   985d ago
Killzone 3 is NOT free in US PS store!!!!
WTf is up that!!!!!!!!!!!!
Y_5150  +   984d ago
I thought it was free until you reach a certain level. I'm not sure but it's free to download. I have Killazone 3 on disc so it doesn't matter to me. :P
bentarrant  +   984d ago
This article talks about the multiplayer, which is free until level 10. Globally... Well except china/Korea.
TAURUS-555  +   984d ago
PSN...youre the best ¡¡¡¡
Thirty3Three  +   985d ago
I see you've posted an article, looking for views. Not good, friend.

We all know about these. It's pretty much common knowledge.
HammadTheBeast  +   985d ago
He didn't even mention Dust 514 open beta which is awesome
bentarrant  +   984d ago
Yeah man! At the time of writing I hadn't downloaded it. Will be updating tomorrow as dust rules!
r21  +   985d ago
Dont forget the free PSM games :D of course this applies to vita owners though.
ThanatosDMC  +   985d ago
One thing i didnt like on the PSN that said it was free but was more like a timed demo/trial was Zen Pinball on the Vita. It said it's "free" but you actually have to buy a pack to keep playing. I wish i could report it.
violents  +   984d ago
agreed, I downloaded it too because it was in the "Free games" section and it lets you play for like 10 mins and you hit the score cap and wants you to purchace the retail version. Thats a demo not a free game.

black911  +   985d ago
Sony needs to market this stuff. Xbox owners dont know there getting ripped off. Next Gen Sony step up your Marketing/Advertsing.
ZILLA  +   985d ago
is KZ3 hands down.the gameplay is awsome any grafix r siiiiick.this is the game black ops wish it could be.10/10
RevXM  +   984d ago
But I wish it was more like kz2.
Kz2 is by far GG's best game overall and IMO best fps this gen.
They went to far away from what made 2 so good and I it seems like a rushed game. I wish they will take time to make kz4 the best it can be building upon kz2 formula.
vork77  +   984d ago
DC Universe Online is already free
Super Taru  +   984d ago
I wouldn't say that Killzone 3 Multiplayer on PSN is free. It's more of a trial version. I tried it, I enjoyed it, then I had to buy it to keep playing it. Isn't this the definition of trial?
ThatHappyGamer  +   984d ago
And "Dust 514" has hit "Open BETA". :)
Perjoss  +   984d ago
A bit misleading, the Killzone 3 thing is more like a demo as it only lets you level up to Sergeant 1, if you want to go further you have to buy it.
violents  +   984d ago
Except for jetpack joyride which I believe is realtively new, both killzone multiplayer and DC universe online have been free to play for a while now, dc universe especially I think its been like a year or two.

Dc universe is a lot of fun and i recommend it. You dont have to pay for the expansions for it to feel like a full game, but I would like to get to them one day.
Danja  +   984d ago
KZ3 is anything but free since you can reach the rank camp in 3 games.

DC Universe is the only real free to play game on PSN
topgun33  +   984d ago
I have gta vice city for the ps2, and I am tempted to get it for the ps3 so I can have it on the system. Do you know if the codes for the ps2 game would also work for the psn digital copy?
CrimsonSquall  +   984d ago
If by codes, u mean cheat codes, then yes
