PlayStation Plus: January Preview

It’s almost time for the New Year, and we’re ready to kick-off 2014 in a big way. January’s Instant Game Collection will offer PlayStation Plus members loads of amazing titles, starting off with a new PlayStation 4 title — Don’t Starve. A wilderness survival game wrapped in a cute art style, you’ll take control of a Gentleman Scientist trying to make his way home from a mysterious place. Be warned – this is one of those games where you’ll die a lot, but if you ever get frustrated, just look at how cute your buddy Chester is and I’m sure everything will be okay. (BioShock: Infinite, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, DmC: Devil May Cry, Don't Starve, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Worms: Battle Islands)

Bioshock Infinite for PS3 is pretty huge. I got rid of my PS3 when I upgraded to the PS4.

A stupid choice you made there.

Why is that a stupid choice (genuine question), i also got rid of mine?

I think he means that the PS3 will still get a lot of support for another year or 2, especially with PS Plus still giving out great games after the release of the PS4.

It's more of a stupid choice if you have time to commit to playing those games unless you only got time for one console then the PS4 would be the choice.

It's pretty stupid because the machine will still very much be supported. Sony already confirmed that more exclusives are coming to ps3 this year. Also considering that the PS4 games haven't gotten it's star games yet. Yes ps4 has some games worth playing but hardly worth selling your PS3 for. If all PS+ is now delivering serious games.

Wasn't stupid for me. My statement was for those who either consider getting PS+ and haven't yet, or just simply to show how good the program is. I've been a PS+ subscriber since the day it became available and I love it.

I don't have time for consoles, let alone to game as much as I would like throughout the week. Upgrading to the PS4 was a big deal for me because of what I wanted to play, and while I will miss the current opportunity to play some games, the PS3 would have just been laying around the house.

To each his own, just noting its a great thing for current PS3 owners.

why get rid of the PS3? the PS4 is still incomplete and while the PS3 still pretty much THE BEST multimedia box on the market!

games are still coming and unless you've played ALL the 70+ rated games last gen, PS+ will always have games to offer your PS3 in the coming years!

if you have a Vita, you can use the PS3 as storage for your games you got from PS+ or bought digitally as the memory card is still expensive and games are coming continuously.

I don't know why would anyone just dis their PS3 straight away.

back then i get PS+ just because i'm enjoy the auto update feature and backup store, i kind of lazy ppl so i just want to let my PS3 hanlde all update itself

then before i even realize the games keep coming, lol, belive me, i lost count of how many digital game i have in my digital libary, but who care right, especially when you don't even have time to deal with your backlog

"Stupid" isn't a nice thing to say...
@ ExPresident & nutcase13

I dunno if I would have worded it as blackblades did, but the PS3's will be a valid console for at least another 2 years.

Seeing as the PS4's are not backwards compatible, then the lifespan is indefinate for the PS3's really. The 2 years though, there will be games still being made for only for those consoles(although they may be ported to PS4 later).

For example, Dark Souls 2, which is maybe my most anticipated title isn't even coming to PS4... as of yet anyhow.

Some DLC is still to come for the PS3 as well, like "The Last of Us"

To say it was a stupid choice is jumping the gun, as no one knows your situation but you. Perhaps you have no interest in any of the things I just mentioned. TO each their own.

A good example of a "port" coming to PS4 in January is Tomb Raider. I will pick it up(at full price), because I know it's a good game, and I never played it at all on PS3(so many titles back logged I never got around to buying it).

On a different note(which is the actual topic)... I'm really liking the PS+ membership, as I didn't have it until I got my PS4. Some nice titles in my library already... with more to come.

For BOTH systems. The more the merrier!!!

Merry Christmas all!

Im thinking about selling mine. I want a new phone and dint want to pay for it. My ps4 has games that keep me busy with more coming. I havent even played ac:bf yet. Dark souls and the last of us is the only reason i havent yet. Im not sure if dlc is worth it but demons souls and dark souls are my favorites. I am very sceptical about the game being as good though and dont see any reason they wont do a port.
CrashJones  +   246d ago
Remember who's developing Dark... also, so many people will be putting thousands of hours into the PS3/360/PC versions.

That aside, I wouldn't be shocked to see it come out for PS4. Maybe a little surprised, but far from shocked.

Being such a fan, I would probably pick it up. Hopefully though we could just upgrade if we own the original(ala AC4)... if it even happens.

I'm just happy Dark Souls 2 is getting closer.
ExPresident  +   247d ago
Yeah I think he jumped the gun, or just used a poor word. Keeping my PS3 wasn't a real option for me as I just don't have a lot of time to game. I knew why I was getting the PS4 and what I would be playing on it before I got it.

My comment was to note how awesome it is that a game like Bioshock Infinite was included with PS+.
CrashJones  +   246d ago
I already own Infinate, but I will be getting Brothers and Don't Starve for sure.

I'm amazed at the value they give for the buck, and the fact you can get your library back when you return to + if you leave for a while, is cool as well.

Seems to be an improved online experience from what I've heard(PS4 compared to PS3). I can't compare personally, but I've been having fun with it. It's better then having no sub that's for sure.

I'm living off PSPlus with PS3, PS4, and PSVita. Too many games. Don't even want any more systems. Plus, gotta give my PC a little lovin from time to time.
MikeGdaGod  +   247d ago
those are some great titles for PS3 but i find it hard going back to the DS3 i love the DS4 so much
ABizzel1  +   247d ago
Just bought DmC, from the GameFly Sale for $10. Darn you PS+. You need to tell us the games FAR in advance :D
spok22  +   247d ago
Was gonna buy a game for the break. Never mind!
HeavenlySnipes  +   247d ago
Don't even need to buy a lot of games anymore because of PS+
OtakuDJK1NG  +   246d ago
lame selection for the first actual month owning a Vita. Oh well. Owning a Wii U, 3DS, Vita, 360 and PS3 is GOLDEN!!

I CALLED IT! I knew that since I bought Bioshock Infinite when it went on sale a few weeks ago that it would soon be free on PS+. They always do that to me.
My next prediction: God of War Ascension will soon be free. It was just on sale for $10 and that means it's not long until it's part of the instant game collection. (though, since I resisted the temptation to buy it this time, maybe they'll screw with me and not do it)
