A darn shame my Plus membership is expiring next month, not to mention I already own Dead Space 3...

Isn't this a good way to get people to stop buying indie games in the coming months? I would be highly annoyed to have bought either game only find out a month later they're giving it away for free, they should at least give you a 5 dollar store credit or something if you bought a game then shortly after it becomes free. Like if you buy a game and within a set amount of time it becomes a free game on psn, then you get a small store credit for being screwed over to a degree. Later in this generation it wont be an issue and hopefully the AAA games will start showing up but for now with limited choices for both the consumer and for sony to give away free, I can see some problems.

Strider is at the top of the list for me and I will definitely be playing Towerfall too.

And people are still debating about the free thing....

FOR THE LAST TIME, THESE GAMES ARE NOT FREE.  GameSpot, check your definitions!

This should be called "Playstation Plus LEASED games of July". So apparently games you get for free are later unplayable if you dont have a payed subscription which honestly means you are renting them.

The games aren't free, they come with a subscription. If you don't subscribe, you cannot play them.

Muramasa Rebirth will definitely get picked up. I've been holding off on that one for too long now.

People expect full retail games for free for a system that hasn't even been out a year...what is xbox one giving out in july? access to netflix?

While some enjoy what PS Plus has to offer this month, I do not. Personally, I think Sony is investing to much time in PS Now and not focusing enough on PS Plus, especially for the PS4. Again, only my opinion but I would like to start seeing some release titles being offer on Plus.

I'm sorry But I didn't get a PS4 to play 8 bit and 16 bit games. When I want to play 16 bit games I pull out the sega genesis or N64. Have no interest  in 2D side scrollers either. Il'l pass on these.  Not criticising people that do like these types of games, just saying I have no interest in them anymore.

Wasn't Murumasa Rebirth a PS+ freebie only a couple of months ago?

Muramasa Rebirth is seriously an awesome game for the Vita. Getting the plat was a great journey

All these free games are shite, give me a proper game, no indie shite.

Dead Space 3 huh? I'll give that a shot.

I believe Doki-Doki Universe is cross-buy, so "buying" the Vita version gives you access to the PS3 and PS4 versions as well.

These games are okay I guess but I can never play them for more than 1 hour. Can't wait until AAA games start coming to PS4.Might as well try them out if they're free.

@Chr0noid Heh, if you think this'll be the last time someone will try saying this, you're dead wrong, son.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some FREE games to play.

@Chr0noid sure they are. They are just free for "playstation plus users", not for anybody else. Free if you don't pay for plus for the games like me. they may be free to exclusive group of people, but still free nonetheless.

@GIF  Or just call it "Indie Plus". I guess thats why they release 5 Indies to 1 actual game in general so they can have "games" to give for free. They are starting to run out of Indies to give us for free. Thank Dog there are 40 more Indies scheduled to release... Its getting old..

@RossRichard The subscription to PS+ and XBL is to play online multiplayer, the added benefit is that you get free games every month.

@spartanx169x I'd be surprised if you see a free AAA game on PS4 before this time next year.

@TacticaI @spartanx169x I bet they release one or two at the one-year mark in November. It'll likely be Killzone or Knack. I suspect that eventually in 2015 Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition or The Last of Us Remastered will be a PS+ pick up as well.

@jrcast84 @spartanx169x I have very low expectations. I don't have PSN for the free games. I have  it to play multiplayer so it really makes no real difference. I did get  Outlast a few months back.

Actually, Guacamele looks interesting and was the only Vita game I was jealous over.

It's homegrown to me too. Go Ontario Canada!
