There's never been a better time to join PS Plus

A clumped mass of games is hitting PSN next month, and a lot of it is free to PS Plus subscribers. Including Awesomenauts, the multiplayer battle arena style game from the creators of another former freebie a la PS Plus called Swords & Soldiers.

The list of free games goes on and on, most likely totaling somewhere in the range of $100 worth. For PS3 gamers that have not yet signed up for a Plus subscription may want to consider next month as the best time to do so.

Remember though, nearly all PS Plus freebie are only free for a one week period, thereafter going for the full price, so you want to be punctual. (Awesomenauts, hamsterball, Magic Orbz, Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom, Max Payne, Mushroom Wars, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Ricochet HD, Skyfighter, Swords & Soldiers)

Trine 2 and Rock of Ages is pretty great.

They had me at Max Payne.

I thought I was the only noticing the sudden wave of good PS+ deals. So many things I've wanted to get in the PS store are PS+ only. I'll never be a member though. I refuse to pay for online.

It's not paying for online, it's paying for game content up front.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1226d ago
^^^ Not necessarily as not everything is free. But whatever you want to call it I refuse to pay. I'm glad that I have the option to choose.

I think I'll have to get Max Payne.
I just wish it was a HD remake.

Looks promising though Sony needs more PSN Plus "goodies" for PS Vita...
catfrog  +   1226d ago
they also need to bring cloud saving for ps+ to vita

I'd say this month's free Shift2 and Shank2 were a better time to join.
Hicken  +   1226d ago
Shank 2 is a yes. Shift 2? I could do without that game ever touching my PS3 again.
goflyakite  +   1226d ago
I think they're still there so if you sign up before next Tuesday you'll have everything.
KosmoCrisis  +   1226d ago
Both Shift 2 and Shank 2 are previously released titles. May's freebies are comprised of several NEW releases. Tallying the monetary value in the two months so far shows May as the better month, but as @goflyakite said, newbies could get everything if they get on now.

If Max Payne doesn't convince you to go plus, maybe nothing will.
badz149  +   1226d ago
who knows
If later on there will be GTA 3 or Vice City or San Andreas HD free for PS+ user? GTA V is on the way, there is every possibilities that it can happen! If it does happen, MEGATON and if it still can't convince people to go Plus, only then I think nothing else will!

Glad I finally got plus. 10 free games in this piece. Old games but still... I never played em. And what better time to play them when they're free XD.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1226d ago
I envy you guys... PS+ still not available at my region, WTF!
DigitalRaptor  +   1226d ago
I'm glad I didn't join immediately, since they've had a few promotions that include content from the first year and after the PSN hack debacle, I got some free games and a taster of Plus before I was gonna join. So I think I joined at one of the best times.

I just remember all the haters when this service was first announced. Now where are they? I swear I think people just like to start crap here on the site just to get a war started. I've been a member since it was first announced and I haven't regretted it. Now they're just offering more than before which is even better. Plus, I love the cloud storage and the auto updates. No more waiting around for a patch to dl when your in a hurry to get in your favorite MP "insert game here". More gaming less hate....haha

I love PS+! The amount of free stuff I have gotten is insane and the discounts are great as well. I hope Sony add more servies into PS+ in the near future.
TheLastGuardian  +   1226d ago
I just subscribed to PlayStation®Plus the other day and I didn't even know about alot of these free games. I just wanted the discount on the Uncharted 3 maps. Glad I signed up at the right time.

Got me to re-new my subscription back in March. PS+ is a sweet service if you plan on keeping it as long as they run it.
Morgue  +   1225d ago
My friend and I argue about plus and XBL Gold all the time.

HIM " if you quit your plus account you lose all the games you DL'd "

ME " true. But at least I know I can play online the same 5 games you have but for free "

From PS Plus Official FAQ page:

Q: What happens when my PlayStation Plus subscription ends?
A: The content you have downloaded as part of your PlayStation Plus subscription at no charge is only accessible as long as you are an active subscriber. The exceptions are free themes and avatars, which you will continue to have access to, even if you are no longer a subscriber. Anything you have purchased (even if you purchased it at a discount) will remain available to you even if your subscription ends.

Interesting, so the free games you dl won't be playable if you cancel your account.

That's a great way for Sony to keep their subscribers. and a great incentive to stay a plus member.
