Gamer's Corner: Our Best Guess At Sony's Five Free Games

Gamer's Corner writes; "Eventually, Sony's Playstation Network will resume. If we're lucky we'll see that day sometime in the next few weeks. It's already old news that Sony will be offering it's loyal customers a free selection of two games from a pool of five. To date, Sony have not announced what those games will be. Clearly they'll be existing downloadable titles, we think they'll come from a mixture of genres and price points. To keep everyone happy we're expecting a full priced retail game, a mid priced pairing and a couple of golden oldies that satisfy the 'cheap and cheerful' moniker. We're not expecting any minis in the bunch, that would just be an insult after all of these weeks." (Echochrome 2, Final Fantasy VII, Industry, Infamous, inFamous 2, PS3, Starhawk, Warhawk, Wipeout HD)

I highly doubt it will be anything already released on PS+...

just sayin

Seriously? You're expecting 5 new free games (none PS+). That would be very unlikely, in my opinion of course.

Will Starhawk be free?
terrordactyl  +   1514d ago
That would be amazing wouldn't it. A bit too much to dream for though?
LOGICWINS  +   1514d ago
Warhawk on the other hand, WOULD make sense.
Pacman321  +   1514d ago
No.

How about they give everyone Infamous just in time for Infamous 2 to be released. Infamous is $30 on PSN store.
terrordactyl  +   1514d ago
Infamous and Warhawk... nicely timed for Infamous 2 and Starhawk. Has to be a good marketing ploy.

...I already have inFamous though.

Download the copy Sony gives you and sell the one you have now for 6 bux and buy yourself a whopper and a shake at Burger King.

Sony
They only do free meals.

To be honest I think it would be quite a good strategic move for Sony to have a couple of free games that are updated every now and then, and have tournaments and HOME integration.

And I don't mean because of the PSN thing.... I mean as a selling point in general, a community builder, and a bridge to HOME.

Like for example.... Warhawk and Wipeout, imagine every one on PSN having access to them, and having a decent Clan system and Tournament structure in place...
And the various other things you could build around that to help forge more of an online community that had some sort of focal point around an area in HOME (but that wasn't necessary).

Obviously it would have to be set up in such a way that it wasn't going to detract from game sales as that would be counter-productive... but something that was alot of fun, brought people together in some sense, and that people could dip in and out of when they felt like it.

A game such as Little Big Planet has all the ingredients for something like that too...

Infamous is a safe bet, why else would Best Buy sell it for only $10 now anyways.
jack_burt0n  +   1514d ago
Might stop a few ppl buying the second on launch tho, because they will be busy playing the first game.

Anyway would be a good deal because the game was a masterpiece.

Tha list would be terrible for me, I would call and complain. I have all 5 of those!

Is this for Europe only?
Prototype  +   1514d ago
I'll take God of War 1 and/or 2
