PlayStation Blog: "Hello, PlayStation Plus members! We’re happy to reveal your free PS4 games for September, 2016. This month you can slash your way through demonic hordes, or journey across the ruins of a forgotten civilization. Let’s get started!"
Solid month! Journey is a must play for any PS gamer. In my opinion, it is hands down the top indie game from last gen. Lords of the fallen, another great game for the PS4. They really stepped it up this month!
If every month is going to be like this, then I would gladly accept the price increase of the subscription.
It should have been like this more often, or to some degree at least, before the price hike. But I agree with you 100%. Who knows what else may come with their event next week.
Even though I completed both games already this is a step in the right direction. I'm really hoping for the Gravity Rush remaster before GR2 launches in December.
@nX As much as I'd love to see GR:Remastered as a PS+ game as well, if Sony did decide to give it away it would probably use that game as a free bonus for picking up GR2 within a certain amount of time. That being said, I'd love for it to be a November game...So people can play it for a month leading in to the early Dec release of the sequel
Ohhhhhhh boy. I've beaten both too.....but solid month indeed
I've completed Journey, but have not played LotF yet, hope us peeps in the UK get the same deal.
I mean...its hard to say what "this" actually is. More like what? All games are subjective so its hard to get what you mean. Some might like this month, some might hate it.
@_-EDMIX-_ By "this" I mean is one AAA game and one indie for Ps4, and still good games for Vita and Ps3, games are subjective and not every game will be of our liking, but a diverse lineup of "small" and "big" games is at least for me, the way to go.
Probably wishful thinking but one can always hope.
I have got Lords of the fallen on physical copy it's a great game. Its like dark souls and it's quite difficult. If you havnt played it yet your in for a treat.
Yeah man its a great game for sure. Good to see AAA games on ps+ for ps4. Maybe its why they upd the price to match gold? either way hopefully its like this from now on 👍
Lords of the Fallen, PS4 Journey, PS4, PS3 Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, PS3 Datura, PS3 Badland, PS Vita, PS4, PS3 Amnesia: Memories, PS Vita That is awesome.
Holy shit we are getting amnesia memories for the vita.
I cant believe so many disagrees like the post above. Food for thoughts as to why people keep complaining. Its indeed a very good month theres no question about that. I really enjoyed LOTF when it came up. Im sure Ill be having a great time playing Journey possibly with my kid if I believe all I heard.. PS3 and Vita is all good too.
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and Datura are good pick ups for PS3.
Lol why the downvotes?
You are on N4G. If someone is happy about PS Plus.....= DOWNVOTES If someone is happy about XB Gold....= DOWNVOTES If someone is happy about anything in general and writes that he likes it...= DOWNVOTES I guess that is that way on the most gaming sites..not just N4G. But since N4G uses its own comment system and not disqus, the downvotes are visible.
@Hoffman I'm down voting you because you seem unhappy. :)
Its a tradition to try and bash the offerings. Lol
Wow great month..
I mad because I already own Journey lol. Wasn't going to buy Lords Of The Fallen, but free is free. Maybe its better it was a game I was never going to buy lol
Pretty solid offering. Not sure I'd call Lords of the Fallen a great game though. Decent enough though.:) Actually kind of excited for Datura and Amnesia:Memories. The latter is one I was looking at a while ago to curb a digital novel itch I was having. If they manage to keep up games like this though, then come Febuary I'll consider renewing...so I hope this isn't something just to tide over the upset surrounding the price hike.
Journey is a masterpiece that I highly recommend everyone at least try. I was tempted to buy lords of the fallen several times so I'm happy with this months games overall. Hopefully the price hike of playstation plus means months like this will start becoming the norm.
I have both on my Amazon wishlist and flirted a few times since they are so cheap. Really the only thing holding me back was a current backlog of games yet to finish and not enough time to play as it is. I really couldn't justify spending more money on games that I probably wouldn't have time for at this point. Now I can just get them and not feel guilty about it :)
Yrust me. Journey is a gsme you put atthe front of your back log. Its a 2 hour game that is a fricken masterpiece
Agreed. Hope it's not a temporary move to tide the upset over the price increase, or make it more appealing just going through the holidays where most people would be looking to renew or buy in. This is like it used to be almost every month on the PS3, and it's why I was happy to see it expanded to PS4, and even marginalized the paid online paywall because I saw a lot of value in PS+. If Sony manages to keep delivering though, then fair enough. If that's what it takes to get better content, then it's what it takes. Online paywall still sucks though.
There are people that will be upset no matter what's on offer. Even though it's a solid month (I own the PS4 and PS3 games already) others will not and can not see it that way. Like S2Killinit said, it's a tradition to try and bash the offerings.
I will definitely pick up Journey and maybe Badland.
it's free ,why maybe? just add them to your library. no need to even download them.
Not really free considering the fact we're paying to rent it
"Not really free considering the fact we're paying to rent it" Have to kind of agree with this, when you stop paying for ps plus those 'free' games are gone. Its still a great deal considering how many games you get to play during the year for the price you pay, but calling them free is not entirely accurate.
I was about to say. Never skip a free game! Just add it to your library and don't download it until you want to play it. On PS3 you have to at least start the download, but you can stop it, cancel etc and its added to games you own. You don't need to fully download it to have it added, but never skip it. You can't get those games back once you've skipped them the following month. I do it, even with games I don't really care for only because I don't know what might change. For all I know a game I looked over might be really good and I might want to play it later on.
access the store online from a web browser. You can purchase them all without downloading anything. And there is no turning on separate consoles.
I add everything, even if I think I'm not ever going to play it. Even stupid avatars and themes I care nothing about. Never know what might come one day. Doesn't cost anything beyond the sub, and maybe cluttering up one's download list. Even recommended people get the games they don't have systems for....because you never know if you might have them one day, or if maybe one day BC or PSNow will make it possible to play them, or what may come. @Ed If you use their regular website and not the store front, then you can just add it to your cart, and it'll go into your library in the store. No need to download....plus it's a lot faster than surfing the PS3 PSN Store. Plus, I don't think the Vita, PSP, PS1, or PS3 titles show up on the PS4 for purchase. @opinionated Don't remember it being offered, but if it was, I probably added it. I played it on the PC because a friend had it. Felt i should if I was going to criticize it. I have no desire to play it again, even for free.
Thank God! I've been doing that for months.
I do the same lol. The only game that I didn't add to my library since the ps4 launch was gone home. I will never want to play that game, even for free.
Much better lineup than last month. I have enjoyed plenty of the indie titles that have been offered but months like this one are always nice.
If you haven't played Journey yet (what the hell is wrong with you) then now is the perfect time to enjoy this masterpiece! Lords of the fallen isn't too bad either, I completed it when it came to GwG earlier this year and its not as bad as the "dark souls rip-off" people normally criticize it for
Now this is what I'm talking about Sony. If October's announced PS Plus lineup is good like this months then I guess it's time for me to renew my subscription. This is a step in the right direction.
Then a month later, it turns out it's not. You go back say I'm letting my sub run out.
Wow ! That's impressive. I hear good thing about Lord of The Fallen.
LOTF is a good game that got some unjustified (snobbish?) dislike. My only disappointment was the final boss I found too easy but I had a great time and dont regret buying it new.
I actually think they should have added Shadow Of Mordor instead. (not sure if it was an either or so). I'm playing Shadow Of Mordor right now and its just AMAZING!
Nemesis system is incredible. It's a shame it hasn't been implemented in more titles. However I'm really excited for LOTF, considered picking it up several times and I already platinumed SoM
Finished Shadow of Mordor recently on xb1, absolutely awesome game
Funny you should say that, I was just starting to play both Shadow of Mordor and Lords of the Fallen again this week. Both good games, I really enjoy them both. You really should give Lords of the Fallen a shot, Edmix. I think you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. Just give yourself time, don't rush to judgment until you've downed a few bosses. :)
@Otter- lol, I will. I'll give it a try since I like Demon Souls and Shadow Of Mordor so much. Semi-off topic, really wanted to see Shadow Of Mordor 2 announced at E3! Hoping its a real thing at next years E3.
It's not great, but pretty good all around. Solid experience that is fun enough. If you like Dark Souls type games, then you'll probably like it, although it's more forgiving at times. In any case, it's free if you have the sub, so might as well try it out.:) Edit @ TwoForce Yep, still a good game. Can't hurt to try it out. A lot of the criticism was ill-deserved for it back on release, and a lot of the downratings were more people trying too hard to call it a Dark Souls ripoff. It has it's flaws, but nothing which should make people avoid it.
It's still a good game. Hopefully, they can improve it with The Surge.
Damn good month. Lords of the fallen is great, didn't get very far into it before trading it in so glad to get that and I never played Journey but always meant to. Happy days!
Vita games leave a lot to be desired, but I guess most people don't really care. Happy to try Lords of the fallen though and might even give Datura a go
At this point I'm remote playing on my Vita more often than playing Vita games. It's such a great handheld that would've deserved the 3rd party support the NDS or PSP had.
for that it would need the sales. what hurt it most was it's name... most didn't know what it was. Sony never named a machine like that before ... named PSP2, guarantee even if it didn't sell amazing it would be at least double what it 's at now.
Amnesia Memories seems to be in line with what attracts a lot of US Vita owners though. Most of it's base is now those into the niche anime type games. It's also a pretty good digital novel from what I've read, so I'm pretty excited for it since I looked into getting it a while back but decided against it for just moving into a PS3 game I've been wanting to play. Badlands actually is a lot of fun in a weird sort of way. @Blastoise below If that's the case, and it isn't that good, or isn't to my tastes, I'll be disappointed. not in the offering of it, just in the actual game itself. I like those niche within a niche games, so while I can concede it may not be for everyone....even if it weren't otome....it's still something that at one point had my passing interest. Won't kill me to try it though. Don't care what people would say if it was one of the PS4 offerings. It wasn't, and I'm willing to give it a try without any pre-conceived notions on what to expect. In any case, I always liked that PS+ offered up things which may not immediately attract me to a game. I can think of quite a few IP's I got into based on just trying them out.
I like a lot of the Vita's Japanese titles, I own Steins;gate, Zero Escape and both Danganronpas. But Amnesia is an otome game, a visual novel with dating sim elements aimed at girls, it's a niche within a niche and if this game was one of the PS4's choices there would be an uproar. Trust me I'm all for Japanese Vita games on Plus, but this title is alienating a large portion of people where as something like Journey can be enjoyed by anyone
Looks good for PS4. But damn...I already have Lords of the Fallen and Journey.
Yeah a lot of pepole have journey. . I feel like I think it was free on PS3 at some point and the ps4 version was free for those who owned it on PS3. all I know is I own both versions and I bought/got it on PS3, and never paid for it again on ps4. Lords of the fallen is a great freebie.
Journey has never been free on PS+
Journey had cross buy, so many people were able to get it "free" if you had the PS3 version. I only have the retail version of Journey, so couldn't get it for PS4 without buying it again, so kind of nice for me.:) Think Flower, from the same dev, was offered on PS+ at some point.
That's where the catch 22 lies w/ all of these arguments about sub services offering "better" games. We all understand that these services can't afford & publishers wouldn't want to give up brand new AAA titles on release, so we accept older titles, but the "better" games of the past are games most of us have already played. Sure there will be the stray title here & there that you were always curious about but never picked up but that'll be the exception to the rule w/ most core gamers. This is why I was kinda cool w/ Sony offering newer indies over older AAAs...I think moving forward they should always push for 1 older AAA & 1 newer indie, that way people will get more mileage out of the offerings while pushing new experiences for gamers that they may not have otherwise had.
"I think moving forward they should always push for 1 older AAA & 1 newer indie" More like 1 indie, 1 established. I don't think many folks want "AAA" as much as they merely want good or well received. Pretty sure lots of AAA could fall under bad games. Its nice to have a less known game for free as many games I would have NEVER bought, I really liked. I'm getting Outlast 2 now day 1 because I got the first 1 for free. Would have never bought it, but after beating it, I'm really looking forward to its sequel . I'm fine with 1 independent and 1 established, higher budget, rating etc.
Most people think that just because they never heard of a game, that it isn't a good game. I'd say that a good number of the PS3 offerings of mid-tier to AAA game offerings were mostly games that not everyone played. We got the big ones which a lot of people played from time to time, but most of the time it was one's that went under the radar for many. Things like Lord of the Fallen would be one such case. Good game overall, but not something that lit up the charts. Journey had cross buy with PS3, so many people will have likely played that since many people brought it on PS3. The offerings on the other systems, outside Prince of Persia which was a pretty popular title as I recall, would be more in the indie side, with Amnesia:Memories being one of those games that kind of flew under the radar with more production value than the typical indie, and even offers something different than the typical offerings of rather simple indie games in the platformer or adventure category. Things like that are why I liked PS+. WHile I like digital novels already, some people shy away from them, so if they can try them out with a sub, then chances are that more people will get into them, and it can drive more interest in the genre.
Pretty sure alot of games that they'll give out people already have or played. So why complain about AAA on ps+ when you already have it or played it.
Because not everyone will have played these AAA games, so it makes sense for Sony to still provide them.
Because even if a lot of people have played a game, there are still going to be more that haven't played it. Not everyone plays every AAA game that comes out. Sure, if all they offered was the highest profile AAA game, then chances are, those of us who discuss such things would always feel like we're just getting what we already got, but there are more subscribers than there are people who discuss it monthly, and very few games, even AAA, come anywhere close in sales to the number of subs that exist. Most of the more impressive offerings which people seem to be interested in are things like Lords of the Fallen. Games which people probably heard of, but most never played. LOTF never really lit up the charts, nor got much hype during it's release, so chances are, many people haven't played it. It's a solid game, and while it may not excite people to see it, they can come to like it if they try it out....which is one place where I felt PS+ was really strong in by bringing more light to less known titles. The really big AAA games on the PS3 offerings were really few and far between. Mid-tier or low hype releases were more typical. From what I've seen, most people don't complain about a game being offered they already played. just look at Journey comments above. People say it's a great game that everyone should play. While not AAA, it certainly was high profile, and a game that many played. Most of the time, people say that they've already played it, so it's not as meaningful to them, but are OK that others can now try it out. If PS+ or GWG offered games every month that someone played, or most people played....then yeah, I can see them eventually becoming disgruntled, but I have never seen anyone say that they've routinely offered games that they've already played, because that would be a highly unlikely scenario since the higher profile games cost more to actually put up there, and it's not reasonable for Sony to be able to offer those each month.
Yeah I know just stating that people who complain about not getting AAA would still complain because they already have it or played.
Naw, I don't think that's complaining, just people stating that they already have the game.
Aw yeess! So happy with this month.
