PlayStation Plus Free Games of September for PS4, PS3, and Vita Include PlayStation All-Stars

Six free games for Plus members announced, including four games for Vita owners.

Sony today announced the list of free games that PlayStation Plus members will be able to download in September, and, as usual, you'll be able to get two games (or more) each for your PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.

PS4 owners get Sportsfriends, the local multiplayer-focused collection of four games: J.S. Joust, Super Pole Riders, Hokra, and BaraBariBall. Originally released in May, this may be the excuse you need to finally pick up some extra DualShock 4s or to put those PlayStation Moves to use. The other free game is Velocity 2X, the sequel to quality shooter Velocity (and remake Velocity Ultra), which launches on September 2.

PS3 doesn't get any brand-new games, but it does have two that can be played on your own or with friends: the Super Smash Bros.-like mascot fighter PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and strategic action/shooter Hoard.

As Velocity 2X is a cross-buy (and cross-save, much to my delight) game with Vita, owners of the handheld will be getting more than two games in September; they'll be getting four, as PlayStation All-Stars is also cross-buy compatible with Vita. Then there are the two specifically allotted for Vita: Joe Danger--the stuntman-themed platformer from the makers of No Man's Sky--and TxK, the spiritual successor to classic shooter Tempest.

All of these games will be made available to download for free by Plus subscribers beginning next week in the United States, Canada, and Europe. They'll remain free to download and play for as long as you remain a Plus member.

It's going to be a long time before PS4 gets any games that aren't crap.

If I get at least one game I'm interested in between PS3&4 each month then I can't complain. I'll be happy with All-Stars this month.

I remember being so hyped for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale after the first trailer. It's probably my all-time biggest letdown.

It's an example of how badly you can mess a fun, light-hearted game when you give it to developers who care about balancing and nothing else whatsoever. Poor roster, lousy unlockables, boring cutscenes, zero incentive to play single-player and no unlockable characters. In a fighting game. There was also a complete lack of promotion on Sony's end, even though the game itself was basically an advertisement for a bunch of other series.Just bad, bad, bad handling from beginning to end.

PlayStation Plus used to be really good when it was an optional extra. Now that everyone HAS to be subscribed to PlayStation Plus the free games are all indie games. They should have kept PlayStation Plus and made a separate subscription for online access.


Because people who signed up for PlayStation Plus on Last Gen did it for the awesome free games and discounts. And now people are signing up to PlayStation Plus so that they can access online multiplayer and probably don't care much about the free games. Its really stupid how they've handled this. Ruined a great thing. It used to be a subscription service for bonus content at no extra cost. Now its a subscription service to access Multiplayer with a few crap Indie games thrown at you every month.

They keep giving free games I've already purchased. It makes me think twice about purchasing anything at all.

Who cares about these free games that will only last a few days or a week tops, Go get Diablo 3 UEE and do them bounties and adventure mode. This will keep you busy several hours will feel like 1 hour!

no man's sky free with ps plus = death to xbox one


make it happen sony. you say you don't understand why we complain about the indie games you offer us. well how about you offer us indie games we will actually all play, like no man's sky instead of giving us games which remind us what games used to be like when technology sucked.


of course you are limited to what you can offer us right now, but in the future I am expecting an improvement on the titles you offer us.

Aaronp2k
Aaronp2k

stop moaning about ps plus people seriously its getting old now, what the hell did you even expect?


do you expect them to give us games like killzone or infamous for free, games which have not even been out for a year yet? 


you do realise most the free games we were getting on ps3 towards the end had already been out for a while, give it time I am sure the offerings will be sweeter. In fact I'd wager that for christmas they will be giving us something pretty special, and lets not forget they are reworking planetside 2 from the ground up and giving it to us for free as well as giving us everquest next, already gave us dc universe and of course the limited version of driveclub which I am fine with because if I like it then I will buy it but if I don't like it then at least I haven't went out and bought the game to find out I didn't like it, I can just keep my money. 


these things take time, just be patient its not like any other consoles are offering anything better for free right now...

Stop calling them free games.  Netflix does not have free movies.

Oh wow, that really sucks... Where's the Bioshock Infinites and Tomb Raiders and stuff? What happened Sony? Out of interesting game to give out on PS Plus? Last months have been crap...

Of all of the gaming things i have invested in over the past few years PS+ has hands down been the best value. So this months not great, i'll get over it. I still have Boarderlands 2, DmC, Crysis 3, remember me, Puppeteer, NBA 2k14, dead space 3 and another half dozen indies that i've not even downloaded yet never mind played.

Oh well at least I don't have to renew my subscription the upcoming month as I can still play online for free.

For all you PS4 players, however.....

I have a subscription to PS+ so I guess I'll try out All-Stars.
I know it's not supposed to be very good, but at least I'd get to see it for myself.

Terrible list I know its early in the cycle for the ps4 but whats the other two consoles excuses

Was originally just going to post "meh" but after reading some of these moronic comments...I just...ugh. It's a new console, people. PS4 doesn't have an awesome back log to give out for free like PS3 does. I'm grateful that I was able to get BioShock, Boderlands, Battle Field, DmC, and Remember Me ALL FOR FREE! Give it a year, you might see PS4 owners get Assassin's Creed or Watchdogs free later in the consoles life. For now, all they can offer is indies. Sides, indie games are great.

This is gonna sound strange but I'm kinda relieved that this month isn't too crowded with good free games: I have so many free games that I haven't even touched yet in my PS+ backlog that I doubt I'll even have time to play them anymore. It's just way too much stuff. I have yet to buy any games for months now because of how much free stuff I got with PS+.

PS4 isn't even a year old yet and people expect anything other than indies even though brand new games still have to make money?  Even if they did  consistently offer brand new games you'd still be complaining since PS4 barely has anything but indies due to being new anyway. *facepalm* It's as if people don't realize that PS+ came mid way into the PS3's life so it was easy to consistently give away big name games as they were old by that point. Anyone dismissing games just because they're indie clearly don't care about solid gameplay experiences. Funniest thing is that they complain about games, get them and then complain about them anyway lol. These are the AAA sheep that are responsible for the industry being in the sad state it is now. In any case, this is why I waited since year 1 consoles are rarely ever worth it historically. Year 3 is really when they start to crank out things consistently.

@muzza93 It will be nice when the PS4 starts getting AAA free games, but I can understand why it hasn't happened yet.  As for the PS3, Dragon's Crown is pretty awesome and I'm sure I'll enjoy Battle Royale.  Vita's been getting some pretty good games too.  I guess it's all up to personal preference though.

@jasongm Already have it on PC, but the expansion is pretty much awesome.

@jmiles1234 outlast was good and trine 2 is alright as well. other than that though they haven't offered us much, but of course theres not much they can offer us right now considering most of the games on ps4 are either brand new or recent. remember the console has not even been out for a year yet.

@j1965 my thoughts exactly. this sunday is the day I look at my bank account and smile knowing my money for destiny digital version is safely in my account waiting to go out for the preload of this game. then the second the game launches i can play it, for £5 cheaper thanks to the £10 voucher I got from the free trial of now tv. and i can share it with a friend later too when he eventually gets ps4, sadly my other friends won't be getting this game just not their cup of tea but I got people I game with regularly online who are getting it the second it comes out so its not like ill be alone.

@seven7swords shush, don't talk sense to the whiners. you'll scare them.

@moomookillah what are you expecting them to give away? AAA games less than a year old?

@B-boy With sales numbers like 10 million, there's no need to offer anything good on PS Plus anymore. This is how Sony works, bait and switch.

RobDev

@customx5 @B-boy riiiiight. thats why they have given some of the best games away AFTER the PS4 was a notable success. Tombraider, Metro last light all in the last 5 months.

@customx5 @B-boy thats xbox fanboy logic playstation plus is offering good  games, ps4 doesnt have many games on playstation plus their is barely any to give away

grenadehh

@customx5 @B-boy Rofl indeed. That's the same thing they used to do with PS+ years ago. There weren't any good games on it until it got hacked and went down for months.

RobDev

@customx5 @RobDev @moomookillah why? what reason do they have to do that? these games are still in their money making stage. They offer plenty of discounts for some games, they will offer free\discounted games after a reasonable amount of time has passed. they have never done this before why start now?

customx5
customx5

@RobDev @customx5 @B-boy  on the ps3, PS+ was just a games subscription,  multiplayer was free before they offered it, this is why they were giving you guys good games, but look at the situation now, 2 months of garbage.


RobDev

@customx5 yet the PS4 is out 11 months. if your logic was sound they would have killed the good games straight away. yet they haven't.
