PlayStation Plus Free Games of August

Another month, another handful of games that PlayStation Plus members are getting for free. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

playstation plus ain't free, therefore these games ain't 'free'

Glad Fez is free. Now, can finally play it without giving Phil Fish any money. And I say this knowing it's a a$$hat of a thing to say, but I don't care. Anyone who makes a comment like 'Compare your life to mine and then kill yourself' get's nothing off of me.

Also... Dragon Crown! Yay!

Fez is the only decent title available. Everything else, not so much.

I just want to say this to every one bitching about cost of retail games and gaming services like XBL, PS +, EA ACCESS, Onlive playpack. Gaming is not a cheap Hobby get use to it. It has never been cheap to be a gamer and play the newest releases. Not 20 years ago in 1994 and not today in 2014.

I had no idea PS+ memberships were being given out for free.  Wait, they're not?  Then it stands to reason nothing you get with your PAID membership is "free", doesn't it?

Dang it I JUST got Crysis 3 off origin for $9.99! Oh well at least the graphics will be better on this version and I wont eat up any HDD space on the ol PS3 :-/

They should do an HD/PS4 version of Crysis 3. I'd hit that.

Jeremy Jayne, I have come to Gamespot for years, but never commented.


Then came lines like "which is sadly not the Robert Frost poetry simulator I've been waiting so many years for" and "sounds about as fun as a calculus-centric shooter," and I had to put my appreciation in words. I snorted through this entire video. Hilarious.


I'm headed out to buy a hat, just so I can take it off in respect. Bravo, sir. I look forward to more.

I like that they drop all those PS4 game cases at the beginning of the video...like we will ever get one game you could possibly buy from a store.  I like Indie games.  I seriously do.  However, I only own a PS4 and if I can't get one freaking game that is fully 3D from my PS plus membership I'm going to pull out all my hairs. This is the biggest game drought of the entire life cycle of the PS4 and you can't even give us Knack or something to last us till Diablo or Destiny.  I mean it's freaking Knack..SERIOUSLY!!!!

Look at the "new" features since 2013. All the same.

@beuneus12 I agree they aren't free. They should call them bonus games, since they're a bonus for buying PS+.

@iBuzz7S You won the dumbass comment of the day. Congrats.


Before you ask why: Dragon's Crown.

@iBuzz7S Nah I've been on the fence to get Dragon's Crown, definitely pumped to play it.

@Nforspeed i don't know how anyone can complain about ps plus, across the board its awesome. wait till black friday and its only 30 bucks for the year.  i hope it doesn't get neutered in the future.  unless your just addicted to gaming, you never have to pay for games.

@Nforspeed I believe I paid 50 bucks for the infocom game of Hitchhikers back in the 80s.


And let's just say... it didn't have modern graphics.

@Gankstar_VX84  i wish i would have gotten outlast (i don't want to pay 20 for it though, maybe 5) but i play the free games, i'll DL fez probably, not the other ones though

@youre_a_sheep The flaw in this reasoning being that, with both Live and Plus, I originally paid the same amount, and got no games.


Put simply, where I previously paid for the cost of the games in addition to my subscription fee, I now only pay my subscription fee. The net cost to me is now reduced by the full retail cost of the games.


I'll admit, it still isn't free... It's just zero additional money out of pocket. That sounds like free, but it isn't... Because.

@youre_a_sheep  CONGRATULATIONS!! You're the one billionth person to make a comment like this.

@akassassin11  Dragon's Crown is my favorite PS3 game ever.  If you were going to accidentally pay for anything twice, at least it was that.  Hell, give it to a friend so you can play together online.

@kyle_douglas new games are updated every tue ( sometime I guess... ) I always check Wednesdays for new games... If you are not on your console you can still claim them store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com 


Also saves you the trouble of booting PS3, PS4 and claiming them on PS store.. once you buy them online you can add them to the download queue

@Shender03  you sound like an obnoxious, spoiled brat.  Go buy Knack ifyou wanna try it.  I'm sure you could find it cheap.  I'd much rather get a quality indie title like Strider or Fez than Knack.

@whig_billmartin @iBuzz7S so what your saying is it wasn't worth forty bucks, glad i waited.  was going to pick up fez the next time i took a trip anyway.

@RobDev @Gitano Sony greatly update their system, is what I think they meant, because it's been nearly a year now and a lot of their upcoming features haven't yet come.

@nardin7 from what I can tell nothing compared to this. M$ has done a good job with their focusing on games philosophy so I will buy an X1 rather than the "more powerful" IndieStation4 with no games.

kenpachi212

@nardin7I don't know but DR3, Titanfall, Garden Warfare, Forza, KI look pretty cool to me and there are more that might be worth the time. IndieStation only has Second Son and that doesn't sound that interesting.

@kenpachi212 @nardin7 Except that Titanfall only gets a collective meh from most people that have played it from what I have seen...and friends I know that have it agree it wasn't great, which sucks. Garden Warfare isn't an exclusive, and KI you have to pay to get characters. (5 dollars a head) That's aside the fact that Xbox stole the free game idea from Sony, hell they took their whole playbook after resorting to porting their "exclusives" to the 360 so they can make up some cash for poor sales. That said systems tend to not start out too strong with launch titles and the like, but thanks to PS Plus and PS Now personally I feel the PS4 far outshines the Xbox on stuff to play right now, and savings. But hey people have their preference.

@creepyburrito Is that really your argument? What if he doesn't want to play games like Garden Warfare or Second Son? Maybe he enjoys fighting games and zombie games. PS4 still doesn't have a fighting game and Infamous isn't a game that appeals to the masses. Grow up and stop shitting on the other console. If you want to resort to who's taking ideas from whom then Sony would be given the nod a long time ago(looking at PSN, six axxis, trophies, controller trigger, controller headset, ect). When did you start getting a paycheck from Sony? Maybe it's when you started paying $5 for 4 hours of gameplay in Darksiders

Injustice is on PS4 and it's a great fighting game, and since there's a superhero sale going on I picked it up for $8.50 with all DLC. Your right SS isn't enjoyed by many but it was still a great game. And yea Your also right about trophies but who really cares about that. At least we have the option to play PS3 titles
