Those with a Sony console know that there is more than one monthly scheme around these parts that provides 'free' games. PlayStation Plus is moseying on down on the 7th February with Little Big Planet 3 free to all scheme members - yeehaa!
Before M$ had the idea to give away a couple of 'free' games every month, PlayStation were offering the service. Yes, this may be because PS+ is a paid service, but a game for $0(ish) is nothing to be scoffed at. The protagonists of the Saints Row series are used to taking things for nothing, so don't feel bad that in July you will get Saints Row: Gat out of Hell for nada.
It's been a rough few months for Sony and their increasingly self-conscious security system. First the cyber attacks in late November exposed plenty of company info to people who proceeded to broadcast it to the world. Then came Christmas morning. Good girls and boys cranked up their brand new PS4's, hoping to download some hot titles from PSN, only to be met with silence. Thousands of brand new PlayStations cried out to the internet, begging for an answer that would never come.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch has been selling very well lately, with over 90,000 units sold to date. Since the projected PS4 version's release date was announced for early this April, many people are wondering about how Young Horse will be approaching their release of the game itself. Might the game be available for free via PlayStation Plus? Here's what the developer had to say on the matter.
April's Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus has been revealed and we can hardly complain about its offerings. Not only are a bunch of really sweet PS3 titles like Batman: Arkham City and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, and PS Vita titles such as Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD on this list, but a PS4 game that hasn't even released yet: Mercenary Kings.
The Monster Hunter franchise is massive. It may not have sold by the bucket load in the West, but in Japan it is one of those games you have to play. Owners of a PlayStation Vita and a PS Plus Membership can now recreate a day on the Bullet Train by downloading Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for free.
It’s a tough start for launch titles. The new highly anticipated IP Watch_Dogs has already been delayed until 2014, and we’ve got word of another delay hitting the PlayStation 4 specifically. Evolution Studies announced that DRIVECLUB is delayed until early 2014, and that includes your PlayStation Plus Edition as well.
We've all gained a few pounds over the years. I remember back in 2007 I could fit into my Mankini without a problem and sit and play Halo 3 all day long with 3 of my co-op buddies - not anymore. However, from October 16th you can recreate this scene yourself as Halo 3 goes free as part of Games with Gold on the Xbox 360.
Originally launched in June of 2012, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection is free for US PlayStation Plus subscribers this month. The collection features two full games, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, both PlayStation Move rail-shooting titles.
It's hard to believe that PlayStation Plus's instant game collection is over a year old. When Sony announced it's premium service and promised free games, discounts and exclusives - many were doubtful. But 64 free games and thousands of dollars of discounts later, there are a lot of believers.
It's a new month. You know what that means. It's time to fire up the PlayStation 3 and "purchase" all the "free" games which are leaving the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection with the next update. It's also time to welcome in the latest crop of freebies.
