BioShock Infinite free for PS Plus subscribers tomorrow

FPS will be free when PlayStation Store refreshes; "14 for '14" deal offering 50% discounts on various PS3 and PS Vita games also kicks off tomorrow.

Irrational Games' FPS BioShock Infinite will be free to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers on PlayStation 3 as part of the Instant Game Collection when the PlayStation Store is refreshed tomorrow, Sony announced today.

BioShock Infinite originally released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in March 2013 to widespread critical acclaim, and also controversy surrounding its use of violence. The game normally sells for $40 in the PlayStation Store.

DmC: Devil May Cry (normally $40) and Don't Starve (normally $15) are also currently free for PS Plus subscribers in January.

While this is no doubt a great deal(PS+ in general that is), I am still not interested in even a free digital, or physical copy of Infinite. It has no appeal to my tastes at all. Don't care for the 1930's style(or whatever era it's supposed to resemble if any) circus funhouse. To be fair, I don't like the settings of anything 1920's-50's. But when I upgrade to PS4 I will undoubtedly will be getting PS+. If you are going to be forced to pay for online anyway there's no reason to not go with it. It really only costs a bit and you get all that back and then some in the long run.

Ever since I subscribed to PS Plus, my backlog of unfinished games on my PS3 and Vita are piling up! But anyway, keep them coming!

Is this up yet? Its been (tomorrow) for at least 12 hours and it's not up yet. I'm really looking forward to playing this.

Games for gold just continues to get shittier and shittier in comparison to this. XBL is getting old crappy, discount bin games and PS+ is getting recent blockbuster games. come on MS help me out here.

The instant game collection is no available on what system..? Uhm you already mentioned don't starve as free and what do you think that was for? It's for ps4... As were resogun and contrast. Seems the author has no clue on these though...

I love the fact that im getting so much use out of my PS3 right now. But my poor ps4 is collecting dust.

This is a brilliant game and if you haven't played it yet and you own a PS3, purchase PS+ and download this game, it's worth your playing time. Not as good as Bioshock 1, or my favourite Bioshock 2, but a great game nevertheless.

I just bought Soul Sacrifice the other day after first getting my Vita, at full price. I really should've researched it...


Two months after it expired on PS Plus, and three days before it goes on sale. Just call me pwned...

For someone like me, who have other live than games, this is great! I was going to pick up DMC and BioShock anyway. Now I have it for for free. Sony, congratulations for keeping us happy for so long.

Something's not right, I thought PS+ was only required to play paid games online, while other free games are still playable without PS+?

Oh wow, DMC is free huh? I should probably get that.

I just find it funny that Bioshock is free and some much shittier games cost money.

I read "Pool Nation" as poop nation when skimming the list because of the word, "Puppeteer" right underneath.

I already have all these games, they are all old. Sony fails again.

Not sure if Gamespot has already mentioned anything, but is it true Outlast will be included on PS+ for the PS4 release in Feb?

@themc_7In fairness, this month's "Sleeping Dogs" isn't so bad a deal, but you're spot on about everything else. 


The really sad thing is that I subbed to XBL because I thought Games for Gold would become as good as the PS+ deals. Boy was I wrong. I can't say I've gotten my money's worth

Conscrumptured

@themc_7 I think the saddest thing about it is Microsoft doesn't seem to care. Hopefully that'll change because XBL members deserve more for their buck than they're getting.

@PS4Lives Is it funny when PSN "exclusives" go to X-box as well?  Silly fanboy.

@PS4Lives Is one of the worst taglines. Seems like they just went with the first one that came up.

@kik4444 free to play games (warframe, backlight retribution)  do not require the ps+ service for online play. 

Dresden05

@kik4444  PS+ is now needed for the PS4 to play online, but not for the PS3. So you can play BF4 online on the PS3 without PS+ but miss out on the PS+ games.

You need PS+ subscription to get the free games each month but if you stop PS+ you lose any 'free'  games you may have gotten. Hence why people keep saying its a rental game.

@perceptive_yodaYour first comment defers to Sony users as Ponies, and yet you ask them to show a little modesty? Perhaps you should try leading by example.

DLC push man... Squeeze every penny out of it before the GOTY Edition hits.

@DiegoctbaYeah, Infinite is completely redundant, anyhow. You can't even pilot an AAS-72X after a kill streak of 12......where's the incentive?!

@perceptive_yodaI'm no fanboy since I have an Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii console (and have been playing since the NES console), but I don't know how to describe you. Every article about Sony, you are there to somehow make it negative, regardless of the topic.


I get it, you love Xbox, but damn you might want to try and get a PR job with Microsoft, at least then when you say something negative about Sony (or anyone who is not Microsoft) you get paid while doing it. That would be a win-win for you.

Free games are great... If you have a PS3... I have Resogun...

@northArrow yea but the games you get for ps4 are trash...i wish i could get bioshock infinite for free on my ps4...i dont play infamous second son because its really boring and just a kids game...ps4 just sucks totally...at least on my xb1 i can play bf4 and killer instinct with my xbox live which is awesome...ps4 is only as good as its exclusives and it has no good ones

@Conscrumptured@19James89That may have something to do with me playing Bioshock 2 before the first one. I happened to stumble upon Bioshock 2 in Blockbuster back in June 2010, it was around £15.99 for a used copy, so I bought it on the off chance, went home popped the disc in, played it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

@sayitbetter @tzolynski  lol GOTY Edition don't mean nothing anymore mate, gone are the day where you wait for GOTY Edition thinking it'll include ALL DLC's, have you seen Borderlands 2 ?, theres the game, then a set of DLC's then GOTY Edition, then even MORE DLC's thats not included in the GOTY Edition lol, one day our games will be nothing more than an over glorified $60 DEMO coz we'll be paying for stages/levels, what a dark world we live in lol

@sayitbetter @tzolynski 


None is free for me since i dont have a PS3 but i did. Wish they could make these available for the PS4 give me some stuff to play.

@Jay2528


He might be a xbot or whatever you may call it but im not. This is great news for people with the ps3 but as a PS4 owner i find myself wishing we got a few of these free games on PS4... I would love to have a chance to play something besides KillZone... I couldnt bring Knack back fast enough...

@tzolynski That's what you get with a PS4 and a few games, no surprises! Wait a few months for better games.

Conscrumptured

@19James89 @Conscrumptured Oh, I see. Yeah, that makes sense as I'm really into the Souls games and almost anyone I've talked to who played Dark Souls before Demon's Souls prefers the second more; whereas I played Demon's Souls first and still enjoy it more than Dark Souls, even though they're both incredible.


That's just how it goes sometimes.

Jay2528
Jay2528

@tzolynski@Jay2528Yeah, some really good deals on that list. I have yet to play Blood Dragon, so will likely pick it up at $3.75. Thinking of getting Enslaved Premium just for the extra content as well, but man am I tempted to buy more stuff.


I am sure sooner or later more deals and free/rental games will pop up for the PS4. The thing is most people are still on their PS3 (like me), but that will change in time.
