Free games in playstation store
The list of free games for the month of October on PS Plus was going to include some names which had been anticipated beforehand. However, there is a surprise inclusion in the list which has been spotted and reported by a Russian user online. Sniper Elite 3 is listed as free in the screenshot shared by the Reddit user. Fans were mainly looking forward to seeing Diablo 3 among the free PS Plus games list for the coming month. However, “Truemat” revealed on Reddit that 2014 video game from the Sniper Elite franchise is listed as Bjesplatno which translates in English to free. Therefore, the PlayStation Store of Russia listing the Sniper Elite 3 game as free could presumably point towards being one of the PS Plus games for October. Sniper Elite 3 is known for its epic slo-mo kill cam which presented a cinematic view of the bullet as it was shot upon the enemy. The intensity of the game can be anticipated by the fact that every organ the body hit was shown being penetrated in … [Read more...] about PS Plus List Of Free Games For October Has One Unexpected Addition
In the eight years since PlayStation Plus began the concept of “free games” (yes, yes, you’re paying a subscription fee) — and especially since I started analyzing PS Plus’ and Games With Gold’s value four years ago — a kind of jaded, take-it-for-granted attitude has set in with me lately. This coming September’s offerings though, are quite eye-catching — especially as we’re about to embark on a huge fall release calendar that will make my pile of shame collapse into a singularity. September is a great month for the “free games” racket (I know, you keep ‘em as long as you’re subscribed). PlayStation Plus started by announcing Destiny 2is already available, barely a year after its launch. That’s the newest third-party release on PS Plus since 2K Sports’ NBA 2K16 hit the service in June 2016, eight months after it hit shelves. Microsoft also had plenty of news regarding Xbox Games Pass’ … [Read more...] about ‘Free games’ for September look to entice players for new games in November
We may be seeing the last days of the free games — Games With Gold, PlayStation Plus — as we’ve known them over the past eight years. Not immediately or imminently, but the seeming exhaustion of the PlayStation 3’s pool of worthy free games candidates this year is both understandable and a foreshadowing of what’s to come for Xbox, which got into this free games racket three full years after Sony. There is no question that Xbox One customers were better served this year. Of 74 games on PS Plus in 2017, six came from what I would consider major publishers other than Sony itself (Atlus, Capcom, Konami, Square Enix and Ubisoft — and Ubisoft’s contribution was a carved out DLC expansion to Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag). Xbox got 18 out of 48 (2K Games, Electronic Arts, Square Enix and Ubisoft). Leaving aside their MSRP or the Metacritic score, that is what players are thinking when they hear, “You get free games each month.” I … [Read more...] about Games With Gold and PlayStation Plus free games: Change is inevitably coming
On Wednesday, PlayStation announced the last batch of free games to PlayStation Plus subscribers for December, bringing to 74 the number of titles it offered in 2017. Were they any good? What would they cost otherwise? In short, what do the numbers say about the value of this PlayStation Plus benefit? We’ll try to answer that question this year as we have the past two years. To that, however, we’ve added a few more questions: How old is the game? Did Sony publish it? What publisher did PlayStation Plus use the most? Did these appear earlier on Xbox Live Games With Gold? These questions may shed light on where these free games programs are headed, particularly as the previous console generation ages. What about Xbox Live Games With Gold? Getting Started In all, there were 74 games in PlayStation Plus’ free games offerings for 2017 (two were PlayStation VR bonuses, and counted among the averages and totals here), with an average Metacritic score of 71.3 and a combined … [Read more...] about PlayStation Plus gave out $1,287 worth of games in 2017.
