Tomb raider ? yeah.
Matt666  +   490d ago
Just no, the only good Tomb Raiders, are Tomb Raider 1-3
abzdine  +   490d ago
i fully agree. but i am still going to try this one to have my own opinion on it.
Ravenheartzero  +   490d ago
What's wrong with the last revelation and chronicles?
Lukas_Japonicus  +   490d ago
Not true at all. Ive just finished the Tomb Raider remake on PS4 earlier today and while some people say it isn't up to the last games standards (i think it's better), it's still a very solid, enjoyable game. Environments are great, the gameplay is great (specifically the bow), the story kept me entertained. It's pretty good.

If you have a PS3, PS plus and have yet to play it, i strongly recommend it.

As for the other games on PS plus this month, Dead Nation looks awesome on PS4! I like the interactive aspect while streaming. Can't wait to download that.

Edit: Just saw 'Brothers: A tale of two sons for PS3, awesome! Ive been waiting for this to come to PS plus for ages. Ps plus killing it, yet again.

abzdine - "I fully agree that this isn't good. Though I haven't played it"

That's the type of response you see from most people who don't like the new Tomb Raider. Ironically alot of these people love Uncharted

@ Matt, this Tomb Raider is a superior game than the rest of the franchise. I've played all of them. All. This is the best. It's nothing like the rest of the franchise sure. Still better.

The Reboot is so much better!!!
Mr Marvel  +   490d ago
You MUST be joking!

Tomb Raider 1-3 were complete crap.

The latest Tomb Raider is gold, especially on PS4.
Matt666  +   490d ago
its amazing how many kids get upset when one has a different opinion to them
Jessika_S  +   490d ago
The last Tomb Raider was amazing, it was a great reboot of the franchise. Playing it on PS4 right now.
XisThatKid  +   490d ago
hold them dislikes to the chest.
SmielmaN  +   490d ago
New tomb raider is good. Been playing the ps4 one. Might get the double dipped dead nation update. Just bought dragons crown for $17. Very happy so far with it. Lost a lot of time in it today. Give me my bubbles back! Lol.
I_am_Batman  +   490d ago
Nice one. My backlog gets bigger and bigger though. I'm actually surprised that Square Enix made that PSPlus deal for Tomb Raider considering they're trying to sell the Definitive Edition for full price.

Anyway I think I'll try Brothers A Tale of Two Sons first.

That's what I was thinking...unless later on their going to release the PS4 version for PS4 in the not to distant future.
But yeah, that would hurt some sales.

Like Microsoft Sony open up that checkbook right or that doesn't apply to Sony
asmith2306  +   490d ago
Pixeljunk Monsters is hands down the best game on that list. Pure gaming addiction.
memots  +   490d ago
yup, i got all the edition of that game lol.

Ps3 + encore - Psp version - Psvita HD - Pc HD .
I think i have a problem lol
Hey does anyone want to buy my PS3 Tomb Raider physical disc off me?
madduey  +   490d ago
I'll do a straight swap with my copy lol
diehardmetallicafan  +   490d ago
At first i thought it was tomb raider on ps+ for the ps4 and i pooped a little bit...
Rainstorm81  +   490d ago
My main question is are we getting Dead NATION in the US
CaEsAr-  +   490d ago
So the rumor were true after all.
rdgneoz3  +   490d ago
Yep, and anyone else notice that Dead Nation while streaming (35 seconds in) viewers will be able to vote on what looks like helping or hindering you? Looks like a fun use of the interact feature.
ZodTheRipper  +   490d ago
They said that there will be 30 different commands to influence the game while streaming :D
WildArmed  +   490d ago
lol so much trolling incoming. Gotta limit my stream to friends only... then I'll have a bunch of troll friends trying to get me killed -_-
KingofGambling  +   490d ago
Man, ps plus is great.
Rainstorm81  +   490d ago
Best console service since XBL for sure
_FantasmA_  +   490d ago
I think you meant:

Best console service.

XBL isn't a service, its a paywall membership

Pixeljunk and Brothers the only games I'll give time towards I guess. Another port and a game JUST released on PS4 isn't the best message sent, I guess those who missed it on PS3 without a PS4 will enjoy.
WildArmed  +   490d ago
Not surprised, next-gen consoles don't have a large retail library. It'll probably be awhile we see retail games, games 8-12+ months old typically end up on PS+, the PS4 isn't even that old yet .
listenkids  +   490d ago
I get that, and actively mention so on reddit, but there are plentiful indie titles coming which are perfect candidates for plus, not a port of a game given to everyone who had a ps3 during the outage.
Neonridr  +   489d ago
April I am predicting will be Daylight for PS+ PS4 users. I think the first retail game we will see on PS+ for free for the PS4 users will be Knack.
WildArmed  +   490d ago

I think Indie titles should be the highlight for awhile. Giving a PS4 version of a game that was given out for free on PS3 isn't exactly the best idea.
XANDEO  +   490d ago
I was about to buy the definitive edition of tomb raider the other day, what odd timing there going to lose sales

Not unless you want the definitive version.
listenkids  +   490d ago
But who would, when you can play it sub-par for free.
mike32UK  +   490d ago
Well, no they won't because they'll get paid by Sony instead...
Edsword  +   490d ago
Same here, I'm not going to pay $60 for an experience I can have for free. Even if it is slightly better. I am holding out for ISS.
Eonjay  +   490d ago
Insanity! I am buying a hard drive TODAY. Screw this. they aren't gonna get me like this. I'm taking it all.
PickAShoe  +   490d ago
All you need is time to play all of these games.
theoneb  +   490d ago
You don't have to fully download them all at once. As long as you attempt to download the game. It will give you the "not enough space warning" and stop the download. The game will be listed in your downloads list under your PSN account settings. You can always download them and play later as long as your Plus account is active.

I have a maxed out 320gb and need to upgrade as well but this method is making sure I don't mis anything in the mean time.

I already got platinum of dead nation , wish if it was different game.
Philoctetes  +   490d ago
Hats off to you, man. I had a very hard time beating it on Grim and never even attempted Morbid. Maybe I'll have to take another shot at it now.
Salooh  +   490d ago
Thanks ^^

I was free and really bored. I had to choose between demon souls and this game so i chose this XP . Love the challenge but i wasn't ready for demon soul after getting dark souls platinum , needed a break. lol

I guess it's a good thing that i finished it because i want to focus on dark souls 2 , it's like they are related to each other.

mrdeli  +   490d ago
Since Tomb Raider is free on PSN +plus - it is the definitive edition for me.
Spontogical  +   490d ago
lul and I was just about to buy the PS4 version of TR. Might as well get the PS3 version for free instead :D

Thanks Sony!
rustyspoon80  +   490d ago
That's the thing isn't it. We'll now play it for free rather than pay for the ps4 version. They should do £10 upgrade then at least they'd get something.
fattyuk  +   490d ago
they do get something,Sony gets the subscription fee and publishers get a fee from Sony
Ravenheartzero  +   490d ago
Nice still not got around to Tomb raider yet, thank you ps plus. Also Brother's is an awesome game.
stuna1  +   490d ago
Sony has a perfect strategy with PS+! The fact that they are continuously adding great recent content is, in fact a win/win scenario! Gamers get a chance to experience titles that they may have brought flat out if they had the money to do so. Gamers are given the ability to try out games that they may have otherwise overlooked, because they may have not initially appealed to them at first glance, but having the opportunity to try them by having a PS+ subscription actually found that hidden gem they had been looking for.

On Sony's part, they have found a way to guarantee pretty much that if you youself have actually tried PS+, that for the most part given the reason to stay current with your subscription or, resubscibe once your subscription runs out. They are giving out a substantial value that will insure a substantial return, which will ultimately lead to an bigger increase in subscriptions across all platforms involved, that will continuously get bigger as the generation progress, plus will substain an active presence on their older generation platforms simply because of titles as of now can't be played on the newer generation platforms.

This is just my list of the benefits of having PS+, and believe me there are more.
serratos27  +   490d ago
Have you considered working for their PR department?
DVAcme  +   490d ago
I was already giddy with PS+'s selection of games, but recently they've been featuring VERY recent games. Amazing games, too, like Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite, Metro: Last Light and Tomb Raider. That's a hell of a value for such a cheap subscription price.
heisenberguk  +   490d ago
Personally not impressed with that line up at all
WeAreLegion  +   490d ago
What's your ideal lineup for this month?

EDIT: They should include Uncharted 4 next month then.

I wanted to buy TR but was waiting for a veeeery good price. Then TR:DE came and didn't know what to do. Now i get TR for free.... perfect ;)
ravinash  +   490d ago
So you waited and ended up getting the best price of all....free.

I have a ps4 , ps3 and Vita. Still its a crappy month for ps+ releases. I swear its like Sony fans cant fathom and negativity unless its towards Microsoft.
nix  +   490d ago
good. i wanted to try this game. if it turns out boring i can always delete it off.
hkgamer  +   490d ago
Disappointing month for me. Have tomb raider on son already.
Also Really thought drive club would be released next month.
Tidybrutes  +   490d ago
Good month for PS3, been wanting to play Brothers A Tale of Two Sons for a while. Tomb Raider also not played so will give the single player a playthrough.

Vita is defo underwhelming this month, been hoping for Ragnorak Odessey or Murumasa Rebirth for a while.
DARK_FOX  +   490d ago
Wow awesome I love PlayStation Plus. I am very curious to see what the apocalypse edition contains!
