Hi everyone. To help boost your gaming collection we have a feast of goodies lined up for next month on PlayStation Plus. Read on for full details of what’s coming your way on 3rd September.
Wtf!? Ps+ what has happened to you! Been mediocre games for a while now. Although, eh, battle royale is okay I guess @ below, i'm not talking about Ps4, i'm talking about Ps3. Ps4 is understandable. Ps3? Last year was amazing, this year is meh I ****ing hope this isn't due to Ps+ being mandatory on Ps4, it's like they don't have to try anymore. Well ****, I guess Ps+ was pretty much too good to be true. It used to be a massive bargine, now it's just...well, I haven't really wanted the games that have come out in this year. Tomb Raider was an exception(that was this year right?) Edit - I hope so SoapShoes, it's just a bit shocking to have such a drop since last year. But they do have an extra console to take into account this time so it could even be that. Lets hope for great ones on the holidays @ Mezati, they aren't free. PS+ value is directly dependent on what sony give out. It is personal preference for most. For me, this year was NOT worth the price. I haven't wanted anything on it. Tomb Raider again is an exception but I played it on PC already so I can't complain about that. The rest just aren't that good. So no ones complaining about free games. We complain about the drop in quality from previous years. Also i'm not alone on this, I think most people will agree the Ps3's PS+ games this year have been subpar, Ps4 is understandable imo.
If you think Velocity 2X is mediocre, I feel sorry for you. EDIT: The rest isn't fantastic, especially for people that buy games often.
I prefer they give us Octodad or maybe Transistors (hoping).. but Velocity 2X is really underwhelming for my taste, and Sportsfriend.. really??
Sportsfriends was meh. Fun for the context it was made for, absolutely mad that they've added it to Plus because nobody is going to get it and it's just going to cause drama. Velocity 2X I can't talk specifics about, but anybody that doesn't try it because "I H8 INDIES" is going to miss out on something special.
Yeah Velocity2X will be better than any PSN game in recent memory. The first one even got a 9 from Edge.
I think it's okay, PS Allstars is a must-play and Velocity 2X is pretty good as well. Hoard and Joe Danger aren't bad neither so I don't get the rage. Some seem to forget that if you buy them all separately you'll pay more than a year of PS+.
Just because its Sony it doesnt mean it has to Put out the Best games always. and another thing is Wow crappy games this month big deal its FREE.. dont like it wait for next months Choices damn for me this month is pretty crappy but who cares not like im paying for it its offered free... If Anything i Think Games with Gold has Made PS+ crappier Sony Looks at the Crappy games microsoft Puts out then Sony just tries to beat it with Decent games lol so much for competition
I was wondering how MS would be blamed for this, nicely done PSN-JER
it seems like im one of the few who love this month's games. Ive always wanted to buy ps all star and velocity 2x. also ive been looking for fun games to play with my siblings and this month is the answer, both ps all star and hoard are 1-4 player online/offline.
its called start of a new generation . why does this come up every month??? there wont give games away when the gen has just started and i likethe fact there giving a few indies prime space. xmas time we have a few full retail games i think
I've noticed that it was weak lately. I think they may just be doing that so they can save good stuff for the holidays. They can't afford to offer great new free games year round, that would be expensive.
I hope you're right.
Yeah Another terrible month. i'm impressed with how bad it is lol.
How is it bad though? PSABR, Velocity 2x and sports friend all are fantastic games! Different taste I guess.
Another crap month for PS+ PS4 owners. As soon as my PS+ account terminates, no renewing for me. I'm done with it. EDIT. @lifesanrpg I play my multiplayer games on the PC, so no lost for me. I got PS+ for the PS4 games (which have been quite disappointing).
Hope you don't like playing games online then.
I still don't see how Strider, Fez, Outlast, Resogun, DriveClub, Sports friends, and Towerfall ascension are all dissapointing but we all have different taste it seems.
I agree, as an owner of the vita, ps3, and ps4, there was a point in time (especially last year and year before) where it seemed like every Tuesday was like Christmas. Now there may be one game between the three that I might want to try out and play, last months was Dragon Crown, Sly Cooper the month before that. Don't get me wrong it's extremely hard for me to even think about complaining about something that's been so awesome for so long. I've just noticed myself becoming less and less excited each month now.
PS4-PS3-PSViTa Threeeeeeee platforms games for each that's value regardless of how you look at it I think you guys really became spoiled especially the ones asking for free AAA games on PS4 at the start of a generation and tbh it isn't a terrible month if you have a Vita since so many of the games are cross buy on PS+ in September so Vita got some love next month, anyway PS+ gives great discounts on games especially on the PS3 but if you guys keep forgetting that Sony Has to give free games for all three of their platforms which explains why the past months haven't been the best for PS+ but I'm pretty sure PS+ will take off again especially with competition from GWG.
Notice that we're nearing the 1-year mark for the PS4. My guess is that we'd been getting a few mediocre games, cause Sony is saving that money to finally give us AAA titles for the PS4's anniversary. And yeah, this month's been slim pickings, but Joe Danger is super fun, and Velocity 2X is AWESOME, almost like a current-gen The Guardian Legend.
@Irishiguy95 PSASBR, Horde, Velocity, and Joe Danger are all good games. AAA games no, but still good games. Not every month can be golden, but these are still good offerings.
Since they are forcing us to pay for ps+ to play online for ps4 they don't need to give us good games so they aren't it seems. Since I switched to PS4 seems I have paid £35 for Resogun so far.. They need to entice you on PS3 so you get much better games as its free to play online.
My question is wtf is wrong with you people always complaining when this happens. If you seriously thought when you bought PS+ you were going to get the best damn games around every single month you had the wrong idea about it in the first place. I mean think how PS+ works and think how many good games their actually are, yea exactly, so it is kind of hard to have the best every single month. Eventually then all you will get is shit on PS+ because they went through all the good games so fast. They have to pace it somehow or it just wouldn't work. Seriously, last month was pretty decent in my opinion and especially with all the cross buy games you got both on PS3 and Vita, who cares if I played most of them it was still good. I am not that selfish to where I feel like every month Sony has to cater specifically to me.. I just don't get why people even complain so much about this when PS+ has been incredible for the most part. No one else is offering anything as good and games for gold sure isn't close yet either so give it a god damn break will ya.
I'm playing Velocity right now, and all I can say is it's worth the hype.
I'm glad I didn't buy PSASBR on PSvita from amazon with that 10$ sale.. cause I would've been pissed indeed... really looking forward to that platinum :D
Worst month in ages (except for Velocity 2x)...I wonder if this will be the first month Games with Gold will be better than PS+. I don't think MS will get a better chance than this one.
Terrible month. Move along people, the smell here stinks. F&*KING sony and their promises with PS+ was so good, now when they've already sold 10+ million PS4s they don't care. Just throwing some indie shit all over you. Sony fan here, always was. But the truth must be told, PS+ offerings are getting worse and worse every month.
in your opinion they are but other ppl are pretty happy with the games coming, I think you guys should stfu about it anyway they are free, entitled kids now days, and if you arent kids grow the hell up.
You obviously haven't thought about this at all. PS+ will not be like it was on the PS3 for a long time. If you expected otherwise you just didn't think at all. It's the basics of how this industry works, no Sony's fault, what are they going to do, convince Ubisoft to give you Watch Dogs?. Try buying the games you want, don't rely on PS+, it's just a bonus.
Also this is the month that Destiny and Shadow of Mordor arrive, so yeah, they aren't going to give a full retail that will take people's time. But Velocity is actually a good pick for those that don't know.
DING DING No one thinks about the "climate" of the games industry in a given month. Destiny is HUGE for PS4 and PS3, they're not going to release another semi-big AAA game on either platform as that might be competition for their big horse (even if it's small). They released a first party game (battle royale) as that is a pretty big game that doesn't compete (genre-wise) with Destiny, releasing this game won't detract from PS3 Destiny sales. Obviously the PS4 titles have to be indie's/online only games as the library isn't built up enough to give us AAA games yet. I think Knack will be the first big game announced for free on PS+ and it's the only reason I won't buy it is because I am 99% sure it's coming free before the end of this year. +bubble
Very good observation! And hopefully this is the explanation for giving a poor lineup. However, I observed a trend in the PS+ games, and unfortunately is not an upward trend.
Bullsh it. We get velocity for free!? Thats frigging crazy!!!
Velocity is really fun... but to all those who've impatient people like me who have already bought... not much else is offered this month.
The same as every single month since the start, if you buy a lot of games you wont get much from the free games.
people complaining over free games.....so so glad i wasn't born in this god awful generation of gamers
Technically they are not free...
They're not free. Without PS+ you get none of those games. The excuse that people give that the games you get outweigh the cost is a lie. The simple fact is that not everyone is going to download every single game that is offered through the service due to lack of interest. Personally there isn't a single game on that list that interests me whatsoever. With that said that's half of my service that's being paid for, not being used.
A good strategy would be to, at the very least, redeem all the PS+ games even if your not interested or don't own the system. If people aren't using the service to its fullest, that's on them.
@mezati99 They are NOT free games... unless you daddy paid for your PS+ account, then I guess it would be free for you.
Maybe its just me, but I find the people complaining about the complainers much more annoying than the actual people complaining about PlayStation Plus. Agree or disagree, PlayStation Plus was a program that people largely bought to get access to various subscription based games and to many they're basically paying $50 for approximately 72 games a year. Furthermore, a lot of people forget that while everyone gets the same games / amount, the value differs greatly from person to person. Like Plus is amazing if you own a Vita, PS3 and PS4, but thats not everyone. Some people simply own one or two of those consoles and don't get the maximum value (nor are they looking to pay $200+ to play "free games"). Another thing to consider is that many of the games offered some people already have as it's impossible to guess which game will and won't be a Plus title. This also doesn't take into account games that simply won't appeal to someone, which was what MrSwankSinatra was getting at. You can love games, but if you don't like fighting games, then the 8 or so fighting games we've gotten are the same as nothing. In the end, Sony isn't giving away anything and people are paying for a service. If you're saying that it's wrong to complain about a service I pay for, than I have nothing more to say to you. @ Jjonez18 I think you misunderstand. I believe MSS meant that people aren't going to download and play every game, but they will purchase it. Like I don't plan on every playing PES, downloading the game or doing anything with it, but I still purchased it just incase.
"Maybe its just me, but I find the people complaining about the complainers much more annoying than the actual people complaining about PlayStation Plus" I suspect its just you. If people arent happy about this next months games they can go buy some retail games. You cant expect over $100 a month worth of games when you pay $50 a year, its just entitled kids/immature adults that would complain.
@ MRMagoo123 "You cant expect over $100 a month worth of games when you pay $50 a year, its just entitled kids/immature adults that would complain." You do realize you're lumping people who complain into a set group that has unrealistic expectations when most just simply said they don't know the games. Like there are many other digital $14.99 games I rather have than Sportsfriends. These include Transistor, Child of Light, Steamworld Dig, Olli Ollli, Guacamelee, 1001 Spikes (even if I own it I would love to see others play it), among others. I mean, just because I might not care for something, doesn't instantly mean that I'm expecting Sony to foot the bill for Destiny or even something older / cheaper like Rayman Legends. Just means I don't care for what was offered.
Looks like now that the PS+ is mandatory they have no reason to offer quality games. Last couple of months have been mediocre, this month was awful.
They've had really great stuff in the past but it has never been great year round and they have had some great months since PS4 launched(at least for PS3).
I've never complained about PS+ before but I have to admit this is the worst update it's ever had. I'll write this one off completely & wait till next month.
Exactly my point. I've been a subscriber since day one, and never complained, but I think this month was really weak (at least for my taste). And it has nothing to do with "indie hate" (I love indies), but I really think Sony should raise the bar, especially now that they have competition from GwG.
At least put the games on your download list. You DID pay for them, after all.
Wanted to try Velocity and Playstation All-Star. Gonna pick them up ! You have to be aware that PS+ is a risk. I wasn't buying many game at all during 2011, 2012 and 2013. Yet I got a good selection for free. Another risk is that you let Sony choose the games for you. And I have nothing to complain about. Since I haven't finished Dragon's Crown from this month.
Not sure what people are expecting this short into the PS4 lifespan Aug the PS3 got Crysis 3 which had been out for around 18 months, the 360 got Dishonored which had been out for longer. These new console have been out less than 1 year
Some games are pretty good, but Destiny, Shadow Of Mordor and Shadow Warrior coming in September.
Would be nice to see Killzone Shadowfall on PS+, one of the weakest months in my opinion.
Or maybe knack? Is there anyone buying this sh*t anymore?
Haven't played Knack, but I would definitely get it if it were available on PS+
I quite enjoyed Knack. It isn't sh*t, it's just a platformer with nothing profound but nothing terrible about it. Imo the only reason it got such low scores is it could be a PS3 game, it didn't show off the PS4 and didn't do anything new. That doesn't make it bad. ShadowFall would be a better choice though. Hopefully they offer it this holiday, I mean it already sold the most of any Next Gen exclusive. They made their money on it.
Shadowfall would be a good pick considering the online has very few players.
Nice month, keep rolling those indies....said no one ever
I don't mean to complain, but what happened to Far Cry 3 being on PS+ August? I guess that was the EU getting Blood Dragon, that I saw.
We already have fc3
Why on Earth does anyone want Killzone or Knack over Velocity 2x or TxK? It seems people prefer to see production values than actually play games.
Well they aren't bad games...
This is the worst month of plus ive seen since I subbed.... all stars is fun, but I'm an old school smash bros fan, so its nothing in comparison.... ps4 I understand. But where is splinter cell, dishonored, saints row etc for ps3
At least they finally put (EU) in the titles now.
I learned my lesson.
Not a fan of this month, but heres to next month!
A move game? Worst month for me yet. Nevermind always October :)
Driveclub demo plus 2 ps4 games.That might be better for you.The other game with move i remember for ps4 is octodad.
Joe danger on vita is good enough for me!!! you guys need to stop expecting miracles for free games. even if they're not selling.
I'm not complaning next month we get Driveclub our first AAA game.
You get a glorified DriveClub demo next month and a discount on the real game, not quite the same thing
