Awesome. Really enjoyed the game when I played the 4 day trial this passed weekend for free on Xbox Live, great that Sony is giving the full game with PS+. Also interested in Gone Home, very good month

Pogmathoin563d ago

Good to see NBA there, my son got the basketball bug with the play offs... Even though the Raptors were beaten by the officials and some team called Cleveland, he was still asking if he could stay up and watch the game last night.... i will surprise him with this.... finally get him off FIFA.....

freshslicepizza563d ago

Good to see they are finally listening and are adding retail boxed games and not relying on just indie titles.

Kingthrash360562d ago

They've released their share of boxed retail games...stop being a hater all the time bro.

Wow despite the recent resurgence in fanboytrolls moldybread successfully manages to keep his spot as most annoying contributor on N4G, I can't help but shake my head whenever I read his comments.

On topic, NBA was a really good choice for this month, even worth playing if you don't like Basketball.

@moldy

No matter where you are or what the articles about you stand manage to fling heat.

You are the definition of a hater....

Pogmathoin562d ago

Ah lads, let it go, we are all guilty of this at times, rage builds....

81 ps4 games offered. how many were retail $60 games at one time? so why target me for being right and we all know ps4 owners and even the media have complained about how they are mostly indie games. it's time to celebrate, not get mad for speaking the truth.

bradleejones562d ago

@ kingthrash Not often enough. Coming from primarily a PS fan. (I just can't stop playing Mario, Zelda, Streets of Rage, etc!)

Ashlen562d ago

Personally I think Siren is the best game, it's really unique. It's the kind of niche game I really go for.

Couldnt care less about NBA2k16 and Gone Home but am looking forward to play Siren and Echodrome

Kingthrash360562d ago

Funny.
Sony hasn't been giving out many AAA games....people rag on them....
Sony gives out a AAA game that's only 7 months old...you could care less.

nitus10562d ago

I have never been that interested in sports games but from what I can gather NBA2k16 is really good game for those who like the genres. Good one Sony.

I will give "Gone Home" a play though since I do like Action/Adventure however, this game is classified as Adventure so that should be interesting. As for "Siren" on the PS3 and "Echochrome" (actually my wife may like that as well) on the PS4 -- give me a break there are only so many hours one can allocate to gaming and I have not even finished "Zombi" not to mention the other games I have. 😂

Sigh! -- Oh well back to Bloodborne. 😉

nyctophilia13562d ago

Great month! 2K6 is really surprising! Doesn't get more AAA than that.

RiPPn562d ago

They gave a full game last month also.. a great game at that.. Tropico 5.

YinYangGaming563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

Gone Home is a really quick game and completed in a few hours but NBA 2k16 is a great pick up and makes it a good month

Kemo_Spear563d ago

Welp, it is a HELL of a lot better than Goat Simulator.

eddieistheillest562d ago

Goat simulator is actually awesome .

kneon562d ago

I have so little interest in sports games that I would actually prefer Goat Simulator.

HaydoThePotato562d ago

Sounds like someone just came off a few bad months of PS+ games. Oh wait...

Eidolon562d ago

Is it weird that I'd rather have Goat Simulator?

Concertoine562d ago

Goat simulator > Walking sim

Siren is a great game though, one of my fav's.

nX562d ago (Edited 562d ago )

Even if you don't like Basketball NBA2k16 is a great game, especially with some friends.
On the other hand Goat Simulator might be fun for a few minutes but believe me, you'll quickly feel stupid for enjoying this kind of entertainment. Though I guess it would be a better game for PS+ than Gone Home.

YinYangGaming562d ago

It's a 2 hour game though, at least with Goat Simulator it's a sandbox that's quite frequenty updates with new DLC etc.

562d ago
XanderZane562d ago

I heard Goat Simulator was actually pretty good. I have to give it a try. NBA 2K16 is good (I already own it for my XB1). If I didn't, I'd probably get the PS4 version.

Duoma562d ago

Id prefer goat simulator myself. None of my friends care about sports games so the playing with your friends part/argument is invalid to me as far as that decision goes.

game4funz562d ago

Have you played goat simulator?

2K16 is spectacular.

The ultimate team mode and rpg-like (Spike Lee directed) my career mode give dozens if not hundreds of hours of entertainment. Even if u are not a BB fan the my career mode is enjoyable. It has interactive cutscenes and rpg elements, u create your own character, it has multiple story paths with different outcomes. It's a lot of fun.

N8562d ago

I love 2k but that spike Lee shit is corny. Worst part of the game for me.

Kingthrash360562d ago

2k is coo...but spike Lee messed ot up...so much so made a YouTube video reviewing why it was so wrong and so bad and didn't make any since. After the story ends it's a great game tho.

The7Reaper562d ago

Spike Lee is a racist piece of trash he pretty much did more bad for the my career than good.

Segata562d ago

I finished GH in 1 hour

AaliyahCollins562d ago

My best friend's ex-wife makes $95/hr on the laptop. She has been unemployed for six months but last month her income with big fat bonus was over $14k just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site.... www.earnmore9.com

OtterX563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

They were all announced. Echochrome PS3, Siren Ep 1-12 PS3, God of War Chains of Olympus Vita, Little Deviants Vita. It's on the official PS Blog.

Edit: Thanks for changing your link & adding the tags. This original posting linked a different site "Thisgengaming" with only the 2 titles listed, saying the other games were unknown. You can check it in their edit history.

PSN_ZeroOnyx563d ago

Thisgengaming is worthless, about as needed as a hole in the head.

OT... Told my wife a couple weeks ago I should get a basketball game bc I used play them a lot. And gone home looks like a few hours of fun.

OtterX563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

Yea, I'm real happy with this lineup. I haven't been into basketball much in a long time, but looking forward to trying one for the first time in years. Especially after seeing how highly rated 2K16 was. All of these games I'll give a go. :)

I can't say much for Thisgengaming. Not real familiar, other than a few articles I've seen posted here and there. I just know the article was already outdated when I checked PS Blog and posted the above comment.

nX562d ago (Edited 562d ago )

Thisgengaming is hopefully pretty close to the next website being banned from N4G. Never before have I seen so much stupid clickbait like on there.

Kemo_Spear563d ago

Thisgengaming has no clue as to what the hell they are doing. They just run with crap with out doing their research (you know, like what REAL journalists are suppose to do).

Thisgengaming562d ago

When we posted the story there was just the video out that only confirmed the two games at the time. The PS Blog post was posted after we posted our article.

OtterX562d ago (Edited 562d ago )

I literally commented within a few minutes of you posting the article, the one stating NBA 2K16 and Gone Home, with the rest unknown. (It was at the top of the pending list for Approval) The PS Blog with all 6 titles was already up at that time. You couldn't double check PS Blog before hitting "enter" to submit? (Maybe they posted it while you were typing it up?) Talk about trigger happy! lol

I'm not going to call you worthless like the person above. I don't know you. I'm just saying in this instance, you really jumped the gun.

Eonjay563d ago

Really solid month. Even down to God of War... which is an interesting choice before E3... but I digress.
Great month!

pyroxxx563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

Well even though I don't care about basketball much,.. Very happy to try it out,.. Apparently 2K16 is amazing.

Gone home is cool and all,.. (really wanted to play trough it,.. but would never buy it for 20 or whatever used to be the price on steam,..)

So I am pretty content with the offering. Wish I had PS3 still,.. Entire Siren is awesome as well.

stevej336563d ago

If these ps3 games can be streamed on ps now then why aren't they also allowing you to stream them for free?

Kingthrash360562d ago (Edited 562d ago )

Money.
Psnow is rental/subscription based and you don't need ps+ to run it. Not to mention the games are streamed on smart tv too...it would be a huge Hassel to divide these from ps+ subs and non ps+ subs who use psnow. Not to mention they still make and sell ps3...all the more reason to buy one. If they were made available for ps4 too that would take away from that value. Ps3 only owners don't need plus to play online this is a reason to have plus on ps3....
