August PlayStation Plus Leaked Lineup Dismissed by Devs

Push Square: "Don’t believe everything that you read on the web. Overnight, popular website GamePur reported that August’s supposedly ‘eclectic’ roster of PlayStation Plus freebies had been leaked – but developers have since emerged to dismiss the reports. The site claimed – citing a Russian source – that the goodies in Europe would comprise of Octodad: Dadliest Catch and The Swapper on the PlayStation 4, Saints Row IV and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon on the PlayStation 3, and 1001 Spikes and Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland on the PlayStation Vita." (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

I knew that something is wrong. Doesn't make any sense for Swapper because this game is on preorder sale on US PSN. How in the whole world game could be free for August?

Yeah... they are giving a PS+ discount on PSN right now for launch, so Sony would look really bad to give it away the same month it is being released.

we've gotten many free launch games or discounts on launch games...

I want to purchase Swapper on my Wii U. Seems to be a great have gamepad game. That's the only problem with have all three consoles. If want a game on one console, but it's free on a different console, then you go with console that has it for free.

Guess I need to get a Vita!

AFAIR, Thomas Was Alone was free on launch, so this one could possibly be free on launch as well.

You don't remember well then. It only back free 11 months after it was released.
ColeMacGrath  +   370d ago
No, that was for the US PS Plus.

I meant the EU PS Plus.

Do your research next time.

We better not get Injustice as a free game cause i just got it ... ill take lego marvel instead or nfs rivals (my opinion)
Skate-AK  +   370d ago
Lol. I just bought Injustice also. Got Lego Marvel too. That Superhero Sale was a good one.
nunley33  +   370d ago
Saints Row IV going to plus wouldn't be surprising, 2&3 went plus. The swapper being listed was a big red flag among the titles, i have Blood Dragon already. If you can learn anything from the news currently, you can't trust the russians :D

That's too bad, I was hoping Octodad and Atelier Rorona Plus where true.
thejigisup  +   371d ago
Those two games would be perfect. I know many people would be all over both of those and a perfect addition to the free games with plus library.
DualWielding  +   371d ago
Atelier rorona plus just came out.... If they were giving an atelier game, it'll probably be an older oner

At this point its hard to tell if people are fanboys or trolling. There's no line that separates you.
WitWolfy  +   371d ago

Octodad is incredible. I recommend buying it.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   371d ago
That really sucks.
Ninja_G_Aidan  +   370d ago
I want Oddworld!
hkgamer  +   371d ago
these rumors suck for devs, now people are in the back of their head think this game is free and probably discouraged from ever buying it at full price.

octodad is also a great game, but i hope its not part of igc. i have that game already. im just hoping i get a game i would never plan to buy, thise games are normally the big surprises.

Why can't there be a europe tag? I live in America, couldn't care less what europe is getting. Putting europe in the title would have saved a lot of people time from clicking on an article that had nothing to do with them.

"Why can't there be a europe tag? "

Because sites need views and they only lose views when they stipulate which region they're talking about. With that being said, a lot of people also don't care since so far PS4 games have been universal and what 1 region gets gives you an idea of what another region might get. Like Europe got Muramasa a few months back and we got it this month.

I want the Atelier games so bad, a psPLus offer would've been great.

heisenberguk  +   370d ago
I'm glad it was wrong!!
tommygunzII  +   370d ago
I agree. Haven't we gotten enough Saints Row on PS+? I do want to play Blood Dragon though.
_NotoriousJae  +   370d ago
