A Germany based Playstation blog has possibly leaked the free games on PS Plus next month.
I doubt they would add Shovel Knight since they released it less than a week ago for Playstation.
Could be a 25-50% off discount
That would enrage so many people who bought it recently
You could already get a 10% discount for Shovel Knight on launch day, so I doubt to many people would be irked about it.
people will finally try Knack and realize what they are missing. it's a game that teleports you to the late 90's.
that wouldn't make any sense since it is still available for PS+ members at 10% off.. @sillygamer - It wasn't just on launch day it's still available for 10% off to PS+ members until April 27th.. This coming Tuesday. https://store.playstation.c... Shovel Knight released on Tuesday April 21st.. literally 3 days ago... it's not going to be in the IGC for May... no way at all.
I'd like to see Killzone: Shadow Fall or Infamous: Second Son be offered.
i held off on shovel knight thinking it would hit Plus eventually (i'm tight on money), but yea I highly doubt this seeing that it just got released. It would be utter bs to those who bought it
Shovel Knight on PS+??? Das is de bullshitting!!!!
Been out for months on Wii u and 3DS so wouldn't be that crazy a deal apart from the fact it's a great game but hey Resogun was free on day one and I'm pretty certain other games have launched on day one on ps+ for free, not many sure but can't think what it was off top of my head now. Besides its only for 1 month. .. Think outlast is the other game I'm thinking of that was free on day one thanks to plus. Luckily I didn't have that so of course grabbed it, if shovel knight is free I'll have a copy if not already got it on 3ds and wii u cross but so I would be passing.
"Been out for months on Wii u and 3DS so wouldn't be that crazy a deal apart from the fact it's a great game" While I assume you're trolling by saying it's crazy that Plus would get a "great game," it is absolutely absurd to believe Sony would offer Shovel Knight. Not only did they hype it nearly two months ago as part of the Spring Fever sale, it would be going from a 10% discount with plus to free within 2 weeks. This would be a terrible business move and impossible to fathom Sony doing this again after they got a bunch of backlash the last time something similar happened. "hey Resogun was free on day one" Huge difference between day 1 free and hyped for two months as a game that would get a 10% discount with plus and then goes free in 2 weeks. "not many sure but can't think what it was off top of my head now." There were actually a lot of day 1 freebies. The Simpsons (I believe), Don't Starve, Dead Nation (PS4), Tower of Guns, Woah Dave, Monster Bag (I believe), Contrast, Aaru's Awakening, Apotheon, Kick and Fennic (I believe), PJ Shooter Ultimate, Pix the Cat (I believe), Swapper (I believe), Proteus (I believe), Velocity 2x, Awesomenauts, Metrico, The Binding of Isaac, Double Dragon Neon, Secret Ponchos, Road Not Taken, Mercenary Kings, Outlast, and probably more I am forgetting about/didn't realize were day 1 titles because of a lack of interest. Still, roughly 24 (including Resogun) is a lot, especially since most of these were PS4 titles and released in the last year. "Besides its only for 1 month." Doesn't really matter. A lot of people would be put off because they bought it assuming it won't be free in the foreseeable future.
They've done that before. Shovel Knight was my guess for next month already
I remember Fez on PS4 launched one month, I purchased it, then it was a ps+ title the following month. I think it's doubtful, but still possible. The spring fever games are really neat. I hope we get one.
march 25th 2014 for fez release on PS systems, August for its PS + add
Keep in mind that no matter what there's a difference between purchasing a game you get to keep forever vs ps plus which is basically a rent service. Sony sees it as renting the game out. They see what you did as a full purchase of the game. So they don't see as effecting a buyer. They see it as you decided to keep the game forever. These other guys get it on the rent service as long as they continue to pay.
its not like they haven't done this before. i remember buying Tomb Raider DE on PS4 and one month later it was a free game for PS3 on PS Plus. tbh most of Shovel Knights sales will be in its first week. if your silly enough to buy indies on PS4 you deserve everything you get as indies are guaranteed to be free on Plus sooner or later. as for the games finally something interesting for PS4. i'll be happy with Rayman Legends alone. i'll be happy with Knack as well to see if its really as bad as people say it is.
Many games included in PS Plus for free was released right at the same day, as PS Plus games were available for that month. For example OliOli 2 or Tower of Guns.
Everyone should purchase Shovel Knight. I loved that game on Wii U.
I would recommend knack to anyone who hasn't tried it yet. I thought it was a very good game so I'm hoping this is true for those interested but didn't want to buy it.
i loved playing knack with my lad. i hope there is a sequel but got a feeling it might end up another kameo
Same (not with my lad...I don't have one xD)! It felt nice to have an easy to look at game with an interesting story and fun gameplay. Nice to have a bit of platforming back. I would like a sequel. There's loads to do with it. Be such a waist of an IP to end it after one.
I really enjoyed the game. One of those times I started doubting reviewer's opinions lately. Great and simple but challenging game for the whole family.
Just shows that anything that is touted as a AAA game but goes against the norm gets lambasted by reviewers.
I doubt Knack would be there. So I'm hoping it's something else! but the rest can stay.
It's the most logical 'main' ps4 title that's not indie to hit ps+. I figured it would either be that or Killzone.
Hopefully Rayman Legends is there, been wanting to get that 1
I would go out and by that if it's not on PS+ this month (do Ubi games typically end up on Plus?). It's a great game for a good price.
Valiant Hearts currently and I have played a few Ubisoft PS plus games on PS3 with Plus such as Assassins Creed 3!
I bought Shovel Knight so I will be kind of pissed if they make it free right afterwards.
I hope this is true - would love to get Raymans and Shovel Knight for free
Although I'd love to get Shovel Knight for free but it's a shitty thing to do to customers who bought the game a couple weeks before. Played Rayman Origins, and I love the faster gameplay compared to the first PS1 game, never beat either but still wouldn't mind getting Legends.
Shovel Knight won't be a free Plus game next month. It just came out Tue and it is one of their spring sells. No way both PS4 games will be AAA platformers, and the bonus PS4 game being another platformer (Shovel Knight). And I have to doubt Fruit Ninja and Asphalt Injection are the Vita games. Asphalt is more than 3 years old and has a 49% on Metacritic. Rayman Legends is AMAZING. Quite possibly my favorite game last gen and the best platformer I have played since Ratchet Up Your Arsenal. But I already have it on PS4, XB1, WiiU, and a physical and digital version on Vita. Knack sucks.
Das is gud, ja?
Dang, I just got Rayman Legends free on Xbox One last month so I was hoping for something else. I already played Knack, but I'd love to add it my collection as I felt that it was criminally bashed by some. It was surprisingly difficult to. Besides for BloodBorne(best game so far this gen) Knack is probably the hardest game I've played on my PS4.
leak makes no sense, doubt is real
i sence click bait
please no Knack for ps4...make it NFS Rivals for ps4!
NFS Rivals is a great game.
I would like Knack.
If it is it's a good month but don't think shovel Knights is one of them.
lol shovel knight seems legit
I'll be annoyed if shovel knight is free- I just picked it up this week. I really don't think they'd do that so soon after release; if they were it would've been a freebie from the beginning. Otherwise shouldn't be so for 4-6 months before that happens.
BTW shovel knight is great and a great buy! support great devs!
I hope Shovel Knight makes it into Smash Bros. Thing about what the dev would do with extra revenue.
Lol there's always a leak
I really want to play Knack.
Knack was a very good game that got a bad reputation for no good reason. Knack is a cool game that some thought was for kids because it had no profanity, nudity or blood, but the story is good and tight, the mechanics are tight also. Try it out and you might like it.
I really hate when we get a free PS3 version of a game when its available on PS4. Thief was another one.
Exactly NBA 2k14, Sherlock Holmes a couple months back
I'm glad we get Rayman Legends and Knack next month I'm tire of downloading all these indie games
From the article: "The list does look pretty believable with the exception of Shovel Knight." Not really? Why would Rayman Legends support cross-buy on PS+ when it regularly doesn't? Even worse, it's just listed for PS3 and PS4. The game didn't launch simultaneously on those platforms. It did launch simultaneously on PS3 and Vita, whose version is missing for no explainable reason. Sony wouldn't do such a fragmented system. For this game, it would be PS3/PSV/PS4 or just one, not two, especially PS3. The Vita list is a pretty notable sign this is fake. Fruit Ninja and Asphalt Injection are worthless games. While Sony has put plenty of cheaper indie games on PS+, they're usually debut/quality games, not 3 year old phone ports. Another good sign this is fake: the site never links to this supposed German PlayStation Blog leak. The header image is clearly fake, since the Rayman box art is poorly composed. The creator couldn't even keep it consistent: Knack's image features an ESRB logo, while Rayman features a PEGI one. Fruit Ninja uses a menu screenshot ...
Knack & Shovel Knight would do. Already have and/or don't want the rest.
Looks very fake
They wont had knack to PS plus, will be some bullsh1t Indie!!
For a platformer fan like me this would be heaven. :) Just have to wait and see.
