Dragon Age: Origins, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Nihilumbra also join the service.
I'm stoked. I've been wanting Grim Fandango!
More indie games, thanks Sony... Would it kill them to add just one AAA title to mix after two years on the market? Killzone could use some life and giving it away would 100% give a substantial boost to the online community.
Thought drive club was a AAA....no? It came out free for plus on July no? AAA game...whithin two years That should have satisfied you. But wait we are complaining about free stuff so we'll just ignore it. Nobody else is giving AAA games for free.. its crazy how DC get ignored but MS bring KI and all a sudden they are God's lol. The AAA games will come soon enough these things cost money to make the free for us. Plus kill zone is a bargain bin game and yall would complain about that....smh OT this is a decent month.
@kingthrash, about that..They were too cheap to even give away the full game. This isn't about MS and games with gold. It's about the ps+ line up.
@kingthrash The drive club freebie wasn't the full game, just a glorified demo.
Medal of honour lol that game was average at best the campaign was boring the mp was OK but they took the servers down years ago so it looks like the campaign only guys I have still got the game to this day
We got Injustice: Gods Among Us on PS+ but I agree they need to up their game. If it continues like this, I won't be re-subscribing because I really don't care about online multiplayer.
@theKhurg Injustice Ultimate Edition is a AAA that was free on PS4 much less than 2 yrs ago. Wasn't inFAMOUS 1st Light given that very same month lol. I know, 1st light is a "DLC" right... Driveclub ps plus Edition, Outlast, The Walking Dead Season 2, Styx, Gauntlet, Magika 2, Rocket League...Such classic no-budget indies lol. U probably complained about Resogun, Guacamelee, and Strider as well. Are ppl really so closed off that they'd rather a bad AAA than a fantastic "indie"? Scary world. Anyone who calls Driveclub ps plus edition a " demo" is foolish. It has a Platinum trophy and its own full Tour mode...and u can participate in every game mode, challenge, and club aspect. Ur just limited to a small number of cars and locations. A demo is 1 car 1 track.
PS4 offerings are dissapointing but the PS3 offerings are awesome! :D I was thinking of giving away my PS3 in the next few weeks and just gaming on the PS4 and PC but now I'll keep it for a little longer ;)
I don't understand why they didn't do Dragon Age Origins on PS4.
I'm thinking I'm just going to let my subscription run out in January. I know it's "only" $50, but it just seems like such a waste of money. Maybe I'll renew when No Man's Sky comes out
Let it run out Muzikguy tbh ever since PS4's inception PSN has been flooded with casuals. Not saying ur a casual but i find it better to actually speak with your actions than to make veiled threats. I now understand how gta sells 50 million copies and Tearaway can barely sell 500k. It's a GTA and Minecraft world, ppl want junkfood games. How many of u guys bought Soma?
I'm planning on letting it run out. I do agree that there are many casuals just out there playing whatever they deem as "popular". Games like Until Dawn get lost in the spotlight. I thought Until Dawn was awesome and I plan on picking it up. I just have a backlog to get through at the moment and with all the games coming out next year that's going to get a lot bigger. (And no I'm not a casual gamer. Unless we mean casual as in not playing all day every day)
I'll be doing the same (mine lapses today, end of December) sure the games you get throughout the year does surpass 50 bucks in total, but it's not really value if you only end up playing 3 of them(basically my situation of plus this year), I'd rather not pay the fee for plus and rather pick 1 or 2 games I actually want to play of my choosing
IMO Rocket League was worth that $50 this year with the amount of time I sunk into it. BTW it never gets old seeing all the people complain about no AAA games and when one does come out people complain they already have it.
Some people it's an OLINE SERVICE SUBSCRIPTION not a give free games service and if you only have PS plus for the games then it's your fault for paying for a service that is clearly for online gaming the games are just an added bonus.
well to people who owned a ps3 with ps+, i don't see them looking at it that way. I didn't have ps3 so having a 360 and an X1, that's what I pay for. When i got my ps4, I got + for online. But ps3 owners play online for free so them going from that to this current situation on ps4 is a little underwhelming to some. Not all I'm sure.
The online service is not up to standard either. There is no excuse to have first party games Running on p2p instead of dedicated servers
@thekhurg DriveClub is a demo ? Are you seriously ? Disargree me all you want. But that how you pissed people opinion.
You're either completely misinformed or a real sony fanboy. Ps plus gave away a "special" ps plus exclusive driveclub that contains 1 location (India with a set of different tracks) and a few cars. The real drivwclub contains much more than that.
@Rayman i love Driveclub. But the way he comments it just piss me off.
Assuming this list is for NA as well, then it looks like Grim Fandango is all I will be downloading this upcoming month.
I'm assuming you don't like car combat games?
Hardware rivals was a free beta last month I believe. It wasn't very fun, pretty bland, and pretty boring at least to me. I can see where he's coming from, but for those who enjoyed it, I understand where they are coming from. Not really a stellar game by any means, but not a terrible one either.
meh, doesn't strike me as anything must have. I may add it to my basket, or start/stop the download so that I can try it out at a later date. But I don't have all the time in the world to play video games unfortunately. So I usually reserve my time for stuff that truly interests me. Twisted Metal, etc weren't exactly my sort of games.
@kaizokuspy People said similar things before Rocket League came out. @Neonridr I don't think you'll enjoy it as much if you're not into games like Twisted Metal.
I played the beta for 10 minutes then deleted it. It's not anywhere close to Twisted Metal, Vigilante 8, or any of the other "good" car combat games
@genuine_user I'm speaking from my experience of the game from the beta I have played. It's just bland to me. Can't even compare it to rocket league just because they both involve cars. I'm sure there's a great deal of skill in hardware rivals just as there is in rocket league, but where one is polished and holds my attention, the other is just too flawed for me to enjoy. Again, not a terrible game, just a very mediocre car combat game and I hope that it enjoys success just the same as RL. Ps plus can be great some times. :)
Well I download all free games whether I like them or not. Gives me more games to play with friends when online.
I'm assuming u don't like brand new games or car combat/twisted metal? I'm also assuming u only own a PS4 unless u 100%ed DA:O, Warfighter, and Nihilumbra? Awesome month imo!
No AAA for next-gen, no subscription.
Really? I assume you are trolling because can not be that silly to think that your ps+ sub goes to free games? My friend that is a gift of good will from sony your money goes to server maintenence so you can play online and funding for amazing AAA games that sony make.
while you're not wrong, I'm sure a small portion of the + fees do go to a pool so Sony can give these devs a chunk of change in exchange to allow their games to be free.
Server maintenance? are you kidding me? it's no better than it ever was on PS3 back when online was free. The money from Plus now goes straight into Sony's pockets and stays there. I'll renew my sub when they make it worth the money. Until then i'll continue buying multiplayer games on PC where online multiplayer is free, as it should be. Why should money from PS Plus go towards new AAA games? that's the most stupid thing I've ever heard. People buy GAMES to fund other games from that particular developer or publisher. PS Plus is a service and right now it's not worth paying for, in my opinion. "Gift of good will" holy crap you are like Sony's dream customer.
No, I was not. I meant what I said above. I pay for PS Plus mostly for the "free" games. I don't play multiplayer games often. Probably, only one game per year. In my opinion, players don't need goodwill, we need actions and proof that PS Plus subs is worth our money.
"your money goes to server maintenence so you can play online and funding for amazing AAA games that sony make. " Server maintenance for what online games or PSN? cuz if we are talking multiplayer server costs, Sony dosent chip in to cover those costs. If were talking PSN, specifically cloud storage and a friendslist, look at some of the last multiplayer focused games in your own library, they have their own friendslist and some save your progress on their own servers. Ps plus is uneccessary to fund those services, as to the second part maybe, half and half? Half for development half to cover themselves from all the money Sony's been losing over the years? LOL, sorry had to say it.
Yea, check out the competitions offerings if you think ps+ is so bad. Oh, you're back? They suck twice as bad as ours? PS+ and XBL were originally paid services for mp. The free games are extra... your self entitlement is pretty disgusting.
Ps plus was NOT originally a paid service for multiplayer. Why people are agreeing with you is beyond me. Plus used to be a premium service for gamers to get a little bit extra and it was a great service until ps4 launched. People are self entitled for wanting value for money? Ok then.
This whole pay to play online thing is xbox fans fault for buying into it. Sony is just cashing in on it.
What AAA games do you suggest? I mean Hardware rivals was fun (when it worked) and grim fandango was soooo hype when it was announced now ppl wanna cry. And didn't they release an "Indie" game that became the phenomenon Rocket League free for plus? Rather play rocket league than some "AAA" Waste like assassin's creed or far cry. Last month they released Freedom Wars for Vita . Easily a AAA title
Any AAA titles that were released on next-gen for the past few years.
hardware rivals again ? srsly ? i know it was the beta last time but... dang
What do you mean, again? It sounds like you believe it has already been in PS+ and as far as I know it was not...
na, it was offered as a beta not as a plus game but it blowed so hard, i just cant belive they r including the final version as a ps+ game
Dragon age! Loved the original a lot but never finished it. I really hope Hardware Rivals is good
Isn't Dragon age a AAA game? I'm confused
Ive heard Grim Fandago is a good game but cmon in with the Vita.. Last month we got a psp port This month we get a mobile port .. you would think Vita would be getting all kinds of love being this late in cycle
Freedom Wars is still avaliable for Vita this month...
Ru kidding me complaining about Vita? Look at the games made available for free the last few months - Freedom Wars, La Mulana Ex, Rocket Birds, Geometry Wars 3, Castlestorm + dlc, Xeodrifter, STFU, Teslagrad, and Bastion (crossbuy). That's off the top of my head. So we got 2 psp duds mixed in, i'll take that ratio. Vita has been stacked...Rocket Birds IS a good game and Freedom Wars goes without saying. That was just this month. Nihilumbra is definitely worth trying, i agree that this month isn't as strong on Vita but the last few have been very solid.
I hear ya.. Few good ones on that list I like especially freedom and geo (I realize I'm not gonna like all). I missed out on Bastion, didn't realize it was cross buy, great game tho.. My point wasn't vita gets no good games, just if their gonna dip into psp ports or ps one classics, I wish they would be some recognizable names for 1. Most of these titles are cheap 9.99 or less and 2. Maybe convince some people to possibly pick up this great handheld Lastly I was hopin this far into cycle and fact numerous Sony executives have said 1st party support is done that they would go after some better titles... For a while there, PS3 got two amazing games every month
Freedom Wars son. Nuffield sed
Is Grim Fandango cross buy with the Vita?
Yes! We get the Vita AND PS4 version for free
Eh, pretty disappointing month.
Yep, not a great start to 2016. PS+ is definitely not what it was a couple of years ago on PS3 where you regularly got full retail games.
thank you sony , for another epic month filled with awesome games that we're worthy of , you guys have the best network , the best party , the best controller and the best monthly games all hail sony
You prob only have ps4
yup , and its driving me crazy and the controller is easily broken (left analog got stock) -_-
Obviously ur being sarcastic, but u were actually right about everything except their network. Sony absolutely has the best 1st party studios most would agree, PS Plus has always been better than games w/gold (+ we get more games), and the DUALSHOCK 4 is easily the best of the standard next gen controllers. The DS4 has less dead zone than xb1 (the sticks), no dead zone in the bumpers & they're actually easy to click, internal battery, touchpad, 3.5mm jack, speaker, share button, lightbar for tracking, smooth less jagged ergonomics, and most importantly shorter analog sticks which make easier to control. Not comparing the $170 xbone controller (Canadian equivalent price). The DUALSHOCK 4 is impressive as a standard controller. I realize the launch controllers had material on the sticks that wore down but Sony replaced them if u bothered to contact them.
when i said PSN i meant the servers , the servers ave huge issues the last and no , the free games sony gives is absolute rubbish , the only game i enjoyed (yet i played it on mobile) was TWD season 2 The DS4 might have less dead zones but everything is easily broken , the bumpers the triggers and even the analogs , i got my controller 4 months ago and the trigger is already sticking and lagging
@wizardo you mean you were not one of the lucky 75% who had the RROD? Lucky man
You must play like a monster
i don't think so , ps2 controller lasted till i sold it same thing goes to my 360 ...
That's funny cuz my ps2 controllers thumbsticks would break constantly, spin around and shit, 360 controllers would die because its ancient technology and I didn't have Any AA batteries in the house. Only problem I had with DS4 is that the rubber on the sticks wore of because I take games seriously
then you be playing like an animal using PS2 controllers xD , the 360 drain batteries very fast but the thing lived for like 5 years without replacing it and sold it with the console i thought im the only one with broken DS4 i googled the problem and there is tons of people out there with sticking buttons and analogs , so i don't think this problem is just from me , the controller is weak ...
Luckily I still have my PS3, the ps4 offerings have been garbage. The only games I completed were rocket league and The walking dead season 2 from this year.
