Chicken dinners and shoryukens are on the PS Plus menu this September. Take on 99 other competitors in PUBG: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or challenge the world’s greatest warriors to a scrap in beat ‘em up Street Fighter V.
Sigh, I guess I can give SF5 a go, I wonder if it's just the base game that many felt was missing modes and characters iirc. Not interested in PUBg.
it is the base game that's missing everything.
That's not true, the base edition received the added characters, and the update to the Arcade Edition which adds arcade mode, more costumes, more stages, and challenges.
Already got sfV... Don't care for pubg.. So this gives me time too work on my back log.
I'm actually pretty chuffed about Street Fighter V! Hopefully we're getting the finished version, not the bare bones launch version - either way, I'll definitely enjoy, just to what degree depends on the amount of content. Played PUBG at a mate's about a year ago and thought it was a mindless time drain that played like trash. Happy for anyone who wanted it though - it's two very different games which is always a bonus! Broadly speaking, I'd say this is a pretty solid month!
Actually with the base game you will be upgraded to champion edition. You will not receive all the characters but you will at least have the latest patches, and also arcade mode.
There’s also a dedicated story mode, similar to MK or Injustice. It’s a free but separate download.
Seeing a lot of people complain b/c both of these are on PS Now. The thing those people need to realize is that there are only 1-2 million PS Now subscribers. There are over 44 million PS+ members. Just b/c a game is on PS Now doesn't mean they should ignore the ability to offer it up to tens of millions of more players.
kind of like when a GwG game was on gamepass and vice versa?
Sure but to be fair Game Pass members are probably closer to total GWG members than PS Now is to PS+. We know that there are nowhere near as many XBL Gold members as PS+ and they are sitting at 44+ million. We also know that there are over 10 million Game Pass members. So yeah I think Game Pass and XBL Gold membership are probably pretty close to each other. PS Now is a tiny fraction compared to PS+.
It’s as if a lot of people don’t want to play games on ps Now
Kind of lame, being a now subscriber.
Not really. Not at the current price. There are a ton of PS3 games that I never got a chance to try out, and a bunch of family friendly titles for my 4 year old son to play. Works out pretty well.
@TheRealTedCruz Is that a thing? Do PSNow members complain when games come to PS plus that are on Now? I didn't think many people were on PSplus, or that's what I keep hearing. Since PSNow is a failure, I don't think many people will mind that the games are on Plus, especially games that are good quality.
I'll slightly edit your comment "Is that a thing? Do people paying for both services enjoy being offered as many games as possible?" Believe it or not, yes. And was I complaining? I wasn't complaining that the games came to Now. Just that Plus didn't offer me content I didn't already have.
Nah,you weren't complaining. I just didn't know that people compared PSplus and PSNow like that. I'm out of that loop.
Psnow is anything but a failure. It's an amazing service that simply hasn't caught the attention of PlayStation gamers due to lack of promotion. Much better selection of games for me than gamepass.
Sadly I have a 2 year subscription to PS Now that I can't use now that I've moved. Internet connection won't run it. Kinda miss the access. Hoping broadband perks up in the area soon. 😔
I have Street Fighter, and not to interested in PUBG, but good month overall.
Jesus Christ Sony smh
Wow. That's awesome. Was eyeing both recently but didn't pull the trigger.
I often forget PUBG isnt f2p... This would have been great 2 years ago, but PUBG just isn't interesting these days...
It didn't even work properly 2 years ago. It works better now - still boring as hell though. Street Fighter V is great though!
Zero interest in both games again this month. There's always next time.
Be careful about voicing your disappointment about PS + Free Games on here. Last time I did that everyone ripped me a new a**hole.
I know some do & I don't care. For me, it's another disappointing month.
Great... So fortnite and the demo to sf5. Sigh.
For me another disappointing month. I have the latest version of SFV:CE already & I have absolutely no interest in PUBG.
I’ll try out PUBG someday and I’m pretty sure I don’t own SF5 I’ll have to check my physical games . I’m too busy playing in Tsushima on max difficulty so I doubt I’ll be playing anything else for sometime . Some months are better than others but why do people get mad when they own the game or use PSNow? It’s not like there aren’t tons of great games to play without having a great month of PS+ for you . This is good for some and not as good for others just like every other month .
F PUBG I remember them talking shit about the playstation..
That is beyond terrible.
Both of these games are bottom barrel...
After fall guys i have no right to complain lol
An entire comments section of people essentially saying this month was lackluster, let alone were you someone who already got these games via Now, though I get hit for being the first one to say it lol; and in a respectable manner. Just proves this site loves to dogpile on negativity. If you have a few dislikes, might as well make it 20.
Urgh... PUBG... i really don't like that game >_< Good SFV, but sadly i bought it a long time ago, with all the upgrades etc (other than the free ones like the Story Mode etc).
I take is PUBG is still locked to 30FPS even on a Pro?
Hell yea nice. Great selection.
I haven't played either games, so I'll check them out. Hopefully they both have a realistic trophy list, unlike fall guys.....
You people programmed yourselves to be negative. Pretty good offering compared to month's past selections.
Can't win every month, I have SFV and not really interested in PUBG. People who do like them, please enjoy.
Is PUBG still in a de facto beta state or did they finally make a real game out of it?
I good, my library is lacking in fighting games
I always wanted to play the new street fighter
Cool! I was wanting to try out SFV! Pretty excited
Very disappointed. SF5 has been on sale for like $7 a billion times. It’s been stated many times that the launch version was a joke. So if they’re giving us this, then it’s a dick move trying to get people to upgrade to the better version. And PubG... really? Lol that game was like cool over a couple years ago. Is anyone still playing that? I’m pretty sure better battle royal games have come out since then but I’ll try it I guess. Would’ve preferred a nice indie, story driven title.
Might try SFV again. A little couch PvP. PubG’s not my scene but I could see going free benefitting them in an already crowded market.
