I won't, I promise. :]

Lol, seriously though. It's a fun game. Have it on PC, and I think it'll fit nicely on PS4.

I really hope Don't Starve is actually a PS+ game in January! Love it on PC, and I'm excited to see indie games like it making their way to the PS4!
-EvoAnubis-  +   699d ago
@imtheman2013: It is. That was confirmed quite sometime ago, actually. Outlast will be next, and then probably the PS+ version of Drive Club.
TomShoe  +   699d ago
But but but... you don't own the games!
imtheman2013  +   699d ago
@-EvoAnubis- yeah, I checked back and saw that it was confirmed! It looks like PS+ is going to be great this year :)
AliTheSnake1  +   699d ago
Holy shit that's a lot of good games. I think January's free games just justified my PSN plus purchase.
Skip_Bayless  +   699d ago
That's what I call a value.

Great to own "all 3 systems" (PS4, PS3, Vita)

Bioshock *freaking* Infinite?? in Malaysia, we just got Bioshock for free! granted that we pay less for PS+ and there aren't THAT many of us PS+ subscribers here, we also want newer games too. please...

Bioshock Infinite? HELL YEAH! Thank you Sony! Thank you, thank you so much! Wonderful collection to start 2014!!!
nunley33  +   699d ago
Good list but I just bought bioshock infinite while on sale in the psn store so I hope it's something else. I will try DMC out and hope some of those January sales EU store is getting comes to the NA store.
Derekvinyard13  +   700d ago
quick question guys, i have ps plus but it will be ending in February. if i download bioshock can i still play it when it ends without renewing?
Bathyj  +   700d ago
No, any games you get on discount on PSPlus you keep but Amy games you get free you lose. Personally, I'd renew, it's so worth it, especially with so many free games coming out now, but that's your choice. Enjoy .
edgeofsins  +   700d ago
Ignore Bathyj...

Any games you download with PSPlus are kept, but not accessible if you are no longer subscribed. When you resubscribe you will get access to previous free content again.

So simply yes if you download Bioshock in January for free, but aren't subscribed in February you still have the game but you just can't play it until subscribed again. So once you have it no worries about losing it.

No mate sorry you can't but that would be good! What you can do tho is tag the game then if you ever re-new it again it'll be there waiting! Meh...
Xalaris  +   700d ago

Great idea, let's ignore someone who's statement was completely accurate.

I really don't know what reason you have for brushing aside Bathyj, so forgive me for labeling you a dumbass. The fact is that any game that you download (or rather, buy) at a discounted price from a PS+ subscription are games that you keep FOREVER, whereas games you download for free are annulled once your subscription expires. With that said, you can renew those games as soon as you renew your subscription.

So everyone else reading this, please ignore edgeofsins.
kreate  +   699d ago
Both bathy and edge are correct.

Edge is just explaining in detail of what bathy said.
edgeofsins  +   699d ago

Except he said you lose the games. Which is different from not being able to access them.

Don't plagiarize me.

I was helping Derekvinyard13 out and Bathyj's comment is confusing. Don't be so pathetically immature.

Ignore the rash attention seeker.
cluckey07  +   699d ago
Xalaris- Actually edge is correct. You keep the game and can download it again at any time as long as you resubscribe at some point in the future. He was correct to say ignore that person because even though you don't get to play it you do keep it. If your intentions are to resubscribe in the future you will get everything you already purchased/downloaded.
ShiranaiJittai  +   699d ago
@bathyj, @edgeofsins, @Bcoz, @Xalaris, @kreate, @ cluckey.

Seriously? Is that important to be right or to correct someone else to "show them up" We can't all just get along? Ok then

Edge is correct and Bathy is half right I have no idea why so many others have gone no so and so is or isn't right.

The simplest possible way to say this.

Shuhei Yoshida verifed, explained in detail and even recommended that this is what those who own a PS3 but don't yet want to upgrade to a PS4 do. So ya...

Also I have done this and recommend people do this all the time. It is how I entice my friends to rejoin plus. I have been a plus member since the first week it was out. To be perfectly frank the value wasn't really there in that first year. Sony knew this which is why a little over a year after the first year they offered every Resident Evil game for free. To get people to resubscribe. It worked for most people. I was not a member for a total of maybe 6 days when I was waiting to get paid? My "game content expired" in that time. The "License or Unlock Key" I guess you could say.

As soon as I resubscribed all I had to do was "reactivate" said license key. You search the game on the store it knows you already "purchased" it. If it is still on your system it reactivates the key. If you uninstalled it it reinstalls for free.

Further speculation. Did anyone notice the timing of when you were suddenly only able to attach your account to two devices instead of 5? people were abusing this.

ramiuk1  +   699d ago
these have already been anounced by sony anyway.
its no leak
Deeke  +   699d ago
Wait...wasn't this officially announced by Sony on the PlayStation European blog like weeks ago? :o

I guess the confirmation that these games are coming to NA is news, and I don't believe BioShock: Infinite was on the docket for Europe.
Craigatorian  +   699d ago
Brothers has been getting a lot of good rep so that seems like a good game. B.I is a game that has been getting nominated a lot, I was just about to go buy it so I could play it next year. Guess I won't have to spend a dime.
dale_denton  +   699d ago
sony, thank you. that is all. cant say the same for those other guys.
TAURUS-555  +   699d ago
cant wait to DL dont starve.

PS4 is the best console ever
avengers1978  +   699d ago
I kinda wanted to play DMC, it'll be nice to check it out for free. Was going to get Don't starve so if it's also free that's amazing.

IMO plus will be better then ever this year when it comes to the games they give away. After all they are requiring it for online play for PS4. There is just a ton of reasons for PS3 owners to also get a PS4.
Snookies12  +   700d ago
US or EU supposedly?
Abriael  +   700d ago
MRMagoo123  +   700d ago
well DMC is already on the EU (im in australia so im pretty sure its the same as EU) so i would guess DMC will be on the US one soon. I am hoping dont starve is on the ps4 psn, i had a blast on pc with it along with terraria.
admiralvic  +   700d ago
EU gets revealed a lot sooner and they already have all their games besides Don't Starve. http://blog.eu.playstation....
Watari321  +   700d ago
Bioshock Infinite, US Plus finally stepping their game up.
ColinZeal  +   700d ago
Glad for you guys but as with Borderlands 2, EU is bound to get it as well. :D
Eonjay  +   700d ago
DmC: Devil May Cry, Bioshock Infinite, and (as though it wasn't enough) Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons

PS Plus is such a good investment. I have a VITA, PS3 and PS4. Thats an incredible about of free content coming my way.
ramiuk1  +   699d ago
meanwhile on xbox they have gears of war 1.
ps+ payf for itself in 2 months imo.
ifu have ps3,vita dn ps4 its crazy the amount of content you get.

prob the best subscription scheme i have ever seen and be part of
grailly  +   699d ago
brothers is the best game of that bunch, not because the others are bad, but because brothers is so dam good!
NegativeCreep427  +   699d ago
I thought it was all hyperBole, but PS Plus really is a sound investment that reaps dividends within just a month or two.

Because of PS Plus Ive been playing my PS3 alot more than my PS4, and now with DMC and Bioshock Infinite coming it looks like my PS4 is going to stay cool for a little while.
cluckey07  +   699d ago
Watari- Stepping up their game? We just got Borderlands 2. Which is one of the most beloved games of last gen. Most people simply fell in love with it and the replay value is extraordinary. It is a year older but still there isn't room to step higher. Bioshock is however very looked foreward to.

Still freshest lineup i ever seen

pwnsause_returns  +   700d ago
DmC and bioshock infinite? yea.. PS3 is going to live on for a good while. doesnt mean i wont get my PS4.
snookiegamer  +   700d ago
Wow I haven't played DMC nor BIOinfinte, ps plus is worth the sub IMO :)
Heisenburger  +   699d ago
I like to look at Ps+ as a roulette game of : What new game(s) I'll finally give a chance, that I might have otherwise never played?

The experience that I've gotten with games like Just Cause 2, Spec Ops, Sleeping Dogs was worth the entire year. Plus all of the other good games we get.

Here we are again, I loved the first Bioshock but never got around to Infinite.

Yeah... I can't afford to not keep my good ol' PS3 around. She's still got some miles left in her.


r21  +   700d ago
DmC, Smart As? Sweet :) Sounds legit, considering the US PS+ for PS4 in January was confirmed to be Dont Starve.
CaptainYesterday  +   700d ago
DmC: Devil May Cry and Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons here I come :D
azshorty2003  +   700d ago
Yep! Finally games I don't own.
WeAreLegion  +   700d ago
Crap. I already own DMC and Bioshock: Infinite digitally. I didn't buy any of the discounted games this month, hoping they'd be on Plus this year. Still hoping for them.
snookiegamer  +   700d ago
Dammit, just found out Bioshock Infinite's US only, EU gets Borderlands 2 (which I have already) instead ;/

Still, DMC alone is worth the sub, so can't really grumble. Hope PS Plus gets Tomb Raider within the next few months :)
cluckey07  +   699d ago
Still hard to complain. They are all great games. I had Borderlands 2 already myself. Great game and I don't mind getting a free digital copy. I have physical which I prefere. But now I don't need to switch disks to play it a little here and there.
Pillsbury1  +   699d ago
You guys (EU) got assassins creed 3... It's about time NA gets something good.
Alex_Boro  +   700d ago
PS4 playstation plus really needs to step up its game. We keep getting indie titles. I have nothing against indie titles but it really doesn't justify the cost of PS+. I can get Don't starve for 5 dollars on pc today.
snookiegamer  +   700d ago
Of course you'll mostly see Indie games, the PS4 just launched and the retail games are all launch titles....just what are you expecting??

The PS4 has literally been available little over 1 month in EU and slightly longer in US.

The console only been out a month and a half. At least we have games with plus unlike Xbox Live Gold for the Xbox One.

Be patient.

you think they r gonna give u AAA for free on PS4 within the 1st month of having it? its not like they have all these games ready n made for your ps plus pleasure. you used plus on PS3 to get bonuses on free games, now u pay for plus to play online. id say anything free is nice. theres alot of f2p games as well. the indie selection so far is pretty phenomenal. but you cant please em all.
forkliftfoot  +   700d ago
What did you expect them to put on, launch titles? Was never gonna happen! It'll get better with time
Deadpoolio  +   700d ago
Yes cause they are totally going to give you retail games when the console has only been out like 40 days...Entitled much, they aren't giving anything retail until at the very least Driveclub launches
nerdman67  +   699d ago
PS Plus is a good enough service to warrent not buying.
Technically you are just renting what you get, but since you can play as much as you want while you still have PS Plus, I doubt anybody will stop subscribing to get free content and play online.
Xbox needs to step out more Games with Gold content.
MasterCornholio  +   700d ago
Dang BioShock Infinite. Sounds pretty good.

forkliftfoot  +   700d ago
EU got dmc and borderlands 2 yesterday, I'd rather have bioshock than borderlands!
nategrigs  +   700d ago
Didn't we (US) just get borderlands?
MasterChief3624  +   699d ago
I think forkliftfoot is from the EU region and they're saying EU -just- received DmC and Borderlands 2 on PS+. They wish that instead of Borderlands 2, EU received BioShock: Infinite.
forkliftfoot  +   699d ago
I'm from eu, correct masterchief:)
bobsmith  +   700d ago
wow ps is owning xbox ahahahaa
but man just 1 ps4 game I want driveclub so bad!!
Lionalliance  +   700d ago
Ohhhh man! and I was aobut to buy Bioshock Infinite lol! It doesn't come with a copy of the first Bioshock right? imean the digital version.
KwietStorm  +   700d ago
Guess that means no Driveclub or Outlast next month :|
imt558  +   699d ago
How do you know?
KwietStorm  +   699d ago
Because they're both free on PS Plus.
imt558  +   699d ago
I must say that your opinion about Driveclub is meaningless. Driveclub is delayed, of course it WILL NOT BE FREE. So, Contrast is free game instead. When Driveclub go out ( February ), it will be free on PS+
KwietStorm  +   699d ago
Yes, genius, we all know Driveclub was delayed. Contrast is already available right now. What's your point? Then you go on to say Driveclub will not be free, but it will be free with PS+, which is exactly what I said. What were you reading the whole time?
heisenberguk  +   699d ago
I'm expecting Flower as Feb's free ps4 game
Joey_Leone  +   700d ago
Thank you Sony.
Summons75  +   700d ago
Free (or renting) DmC is still to high a price for that crap, the other games are a nice addition.
CrimsonDragon90  +   699d ago
DmC is awesome, your crap.
MasterChief3624  +   699d ago
The hate train for DmC came and went quite a while ago. You should probably hop off of it before you embarrass yourself further.
Summons75  +   699d ago
Tell that to all the bad reviews and low sales. True fact is true fact, sorry your fragile ears can't take the truth. there is a reason why ALL ninja theory titles are twenty bucks a few weeks after launch and a reason they sell way under expectation and its not because of a mythical hate train either.
bangoskank  +   699d ago
You're delusional. The game actually got very good reviews (see metacritic). It was up their with Bioshock as one of my favorites of 2013. This is a good month for plus users who haven't played either of them.
Avengingkinght92  +   699d ago
I thought the DmC troll haters where all gone. I guess they're still butt hurt over DmC lol
Relientk77  +   699d ago
Sweet what a great selection
SlapHappyJesus  +   699d ago
Great list of games, really.
MAULxx  +   699d ago
Yes it is. It's great if you own a PS3. If you just own a PS4 then it's still "good". You get something new to play. I'm glad I have a PS3 as well & waited to play Bioshock infinite & DMC.
NeoTribe  +   699d ago
Wow bioshock infinite... ps plus is a beast.
JohnS1313  +   699d ago
I don't have any of those games so if this is true, great month. Especially BioShock Infinite.
MasterChief3624  +   699d ago
That's impressive!
Can't believe BioShock: Infinite is already going to be free... So happy to see DmC on there, though, as it's one of those games I constantly want to buy but constantly resist the temptation to.

Sucks that Brothers: Tale of Two Sons is up there, though, considering I impulse bought it during its sale last night on Xbox Live, haha :)

Great list for PlayStation Plus!
2pacalypsenow  +   699d ago
Im so glad i didn't give in and buy bioshock on steam im getting it for free
