wonder what NA will get... PS4 games probably will be the same for all.

We get Dragons crown for vita instead of harry potter.

Indie fest on the ps4 I don't mind indies but that's all we are getting on the ps4. To be honest ps+ Content has not been to great for 3 months now let's hope it gets better.

The problem with PS plus (for devs) is that I've paid for a few then months later they have come to plus. I am going to start really questioning purchases. Suspect I am not alone. Hopefully it won't put people off and small devs start loosing sales.

I'll probably get a bunch of disagrees for this, but...

"The problem with PS plus (for devs) is that I've paid for a few then months later they have come to plus."

While that is always disappointing (I think I've had it happen to me at least once a month for the past 2 - 3 years), you simply need to change your perception of the issue. Like it might suck that you're losing value / wasted money, but odds are you wanted said game and a life lived in fear is no life lived at all. Like I could have bought LBP Vita on day 1 (like I did) or I could wait for it to hit Plus (23 months later and it still has yet to hit Plus).

Lets also not forget that everything has trade offs. Like having Dragon's Crown or Borderlands at release probably had a more active online and people didn't have stupidly overpowered / amazing gear. In some ways this results in a diminished experience (like there are absolutely no secrets to find in Borderlands) and so forth. Again, there are all trade offs and really, you should support the devs / games you like and just shrug it off if games go free with Plus.

i've felt the same. if its an indie then chances are it will go free sooner or later especially as theres two free PS4 games a month. i have other expenses to take care of so PlayStation Plus serves me well. in fairness i've also stopped buying AAA games as unless its multiplayer focused like Destiny i will wait until it goes free.

How often does your mother say "yes dear, that's nice dear, oh really dear" when she has to hear about PlayStation did this and that from you!

You have got to be kidding me So completely changing their model to be a ps plus clone adding a web browser and blue ray and this is just the tip please don't say 3d support when ps3 already had that feature and ps4 was likely to get it anyway so what exactly. Remind me when games with gold started? I think it started way after ps plus. Games wise I understand the indy stuff but also understand that this is a business and Developers really are trying to milk as many dollars as they can out of people before so they will offer discounts several times before they actually give up the triple a titles for the ps4 and if your a gamer that has to have everything the day it comes out then your going to lose that way.

I'll check out Road Not Taken and Fez then, Well, I guess it's time to punish myself a little for all the sins I committed in a year, I'll atone by playing Crysis.
Keith22  +   84d ago
Ill not be downloading fez due to the twat who made it.
Hellsvacancy  +   84d ago
I found it pretty boring and I normally like games like this

You should still play it, it's not like your giving your money to Phil Fish
GamingSinceThe80s  +   84d ago
I don't think Fish would see any extra money if you did download it.Because Sony as far as I know pays a package deal for plus games.From what I have heard it is an amazing game.You mite as well get it,seeing as you kind of did already pay him for it by just having plus.I'm sure going to,and I hate a lot of what he has said.But he is just an A-hole who runs his mouth to much,its not like a racist,murder or worse.
toddybad  +   84d ago
I'm halfway through after buying it a few months ago. It's okay. Not a bad little concept so can see why it'd score okay but certainly failing to see how it got 90+ scores. Not exactly a good platformer - it's the concept that carries it.
admiralvic  +   84d ago
What do you accomplish by doing that?

Sony "pays" a flat rate for games (it would make no sense per download, since most people download everything because it's free regardless), so you not downloading it simply results in you having 1 less subscription tied title and lowers your overall value (even if you never play it). Furthermore, you could look at it the other way and try to increase the number so it seems like they gave up more sales by giving it away with Plus.

However, in the end it just sounds petty. If they gain nothing by you downloading it and or you playing it, why take a stance against it? The only person being punished / coming out behind is yourself and it's all in an effort to make a point no one besides yourself will ever know.
Keith22  +   84d ago
You clearly don't know Phil Fish

admiralvic  +   84d ago
@ Keith22

I know him and I know immature stances that accomplish nothing, but that doesn't change the fact that your choice will only negatively impact you and will have zero impact on either of them in any way. Similar to how I could not download Dead Space 3 or Crysis 3 because I hate EA. Thats all fine and dandy, but come the end of the day I am simply selecting 2 less games to play and 2 less PlayStation Plus titles just so I can send a statement to a company that no one will ever see.

At least one game on each platform that I'll be playing.

I got it on PC and did not get the appeal. But it's free, you better try it out and see for yourself
Hellsvacancy  +   84d ago
Yeah man defo will
Sketchy_Galore  +   84d ago
I know I can't really bitch since it's still an amazing service in all but it really is about time we got a proper PS4 game rather than yet another of these retro styled indies. Outlast was a great free game that really took advantage of the hardware (and led to me buying the DLC day one) but it's been long enough since then to give us something that couldn't be played on a Snes. Just give us Knack or something.

Swiggins  +   84d ago

grailly  +   84d ago
I feel like I'm the only one really pumped for metrico, I've been looking forward to this game for about a year now. getting it "free" on day one is awesome.
Slugfest321  +   84d ago
This annoys me every time thees announcements come along of course its going to be indie/arcade games for ps4 its not been out for a year yet they want people to buy the games that are on ps4. I am ok with it the indie games keep me playing till next game releases sure some have been less interesting than others but still.
