Already got the Dead Nation game. I'll pick up the Monster Hunter game for my PSVita tonight. Maybe I'll check out Lone Survivor as well.

I love when the games of the month are ones that I would not normally give the time of day. Thomas was alone looks like it will scratch that itch for weird and querky, while Dead Nation looks like it will be a great muliplayer game that does not take its self to seriously. Keep it going Sony and you have my $50 every year.

Man!!  I just bought the deal pack last month & got Lone Survivor & Thomas Was Alone.  Unit 13 came with my Vita & was free for almost 1 year.  Thomas was alone simple (so far) and actually pretty cool for a game to wind the day down on. ( playing in bed)   Some games keep you @ the edge of your chair, that one is cool do do 3-4 levels & call it a night.  I was interested in Tomb Raider before, Now I get the chance to play it.  Gives me something while i wait for the 18th for Final Fantasy 10.

As an owner of all 3 systems, I can say that PS+ is a great value! I cant keep up with all the free games they hand out. Playstation as a whole is really stepping their game up in a major way!

PS+ pays for itself with all the games and discounts on offer...  it may look like a 'rental' to some, but many people sit down and play through the game in less than a week anyway, and they dont have to go out and pay full price for it, so its better than any rental..  My PS3 HDD is chock full of the offerings that the Instant Game Collection has had over the last year..   no end in sight for my PS+ subscription... and Xbox offers what for free??

I was hoping for The Last of Us but then again that would be wishful thinking

PNS Plus free RENTAL games in the March*

Fixed it for ya Gamespot.

Call it what it is guys. They are rentals. They aren't free games because you still have to pay to play them after your PSN+ account expires, so they aren't free at that point.

March is looking like kind of a let down after the games we got in Feb. Still cool that they are giving away these games. Hope they continue to follow this model.

@marcuzgungeze10Well most people got Dead Nation for PS3 back when the PSN was hacked. It was a good game, I really liked it. As for Tomb Raider and Lone Survivor, I already bought both of them, like many of the other free games from PS+... I really should buy less games, I end up getting most of them free before I could even finish them. (I'm looking at you, Bioshock Infinite)

@noodlzethegreat You're /salty/ about it? Is this new hip way all the crazy kids are saying these days? Are you a pirate on the ocean waves? Do you own a parrot. If yes...THAT'S AWESOME TO THE MAX.


But to answer your question with a question about Womb Waider: Which Platform has been out longer? Ta-dah!

@dussan2 "MH3 Ultimate" was released Wii-U. Not to menction the first 2 were released on PS2.

Also in Japan you have "MH Frontier" on X360 and PS3 :)

@DJKrayz_basic Ya, when it first came out, I was totally against it.  It came bundled with my Vita, I have Hundreds & Hundreds of dollars of free stuff now.  I'll subscribe as long as my Sony systems are functioning.  Amazing deals...

@DJKrayz_basic Totally agree, my PS3 alone has over 10 games since I joined PS+ since last October/November.

More for Vita & I think 5 since I got my PS4.

It may be a bit of a gamble on which retail games you buy, but still you always end up with something you haven't played.

The service actually saves you money that you can spend on even more games.


Excellent value IMO!

MS would do well to copy the service, if they can get the deals with 3rd party publishers.

@notfrylock1987 Rentals need to be returned.  These games are free to download & you can play when ever you want.  You OWN these games as long as your subscription of $49 / year is meet.  Once you download them, you can delete them, wait 5 months, re-download them again.  ( 4x max each game).  

there are " Timed Trials " but thats in a different section.  the games listed above are not " Timed Trials ".  I'm looking @ them right now in the PS Store.

@notfrylock1987 Yes, what you say is true. So?
5 per month (If you pay the quota each 3 months like me) and you keep getting more and more games each month.

Call it what it is, man; the best service in consoles right now.

@notfrylock1987  

What does XBLive get you?.

Access to Netflix and YouTube...that's what. Let your account lapse and you can't even check your email.

@notfrylock1987  And then you continue the subscribtion and you have acces to all the games again...

@Super-Poke-Bros  Yeah, I bought it awhile ago myself, with one of the nice sales they did.  This seems to be the theme with the PS+ games pretty regularly, I either already have the game on 360, or already bought it at  a discount.


Still though, the few games I've got for free through PS+, that I didn't already have, have been pretty great.  Hotline Miami was fantastic.

@sunyatanada76 You need a gaming system made by Sony... thats it.  PSP, Vita, PS3, PS4.  1 subscription covers all systems.

@seanwil545 @notfrylock1987  XBL's member discounts are just as good as those on PS+.  Gold pays for itself easily with those discounts (and then some) just like PS+'s discounts do.

I prefer the quality of the xbox live service, but the free games with gold are a joke compared to ps plus. I wish they would completely copy the model.

@notfrylock1987 @guitargladiatorOnline Gaming has nothing to do with PSN+  Unless your saying your Playstations can't connect online, that would be different.  If thats not what your saying, I'm calling bull s. hi. t on your comment & you don't have PSN+ @ all.  Devel May Cry, Metro, Brothers,  Pay Day 2, Little Big Planet Karting, Binary Domain, Uncharted 3, X-COM, Ibb & OBB, Remember Me & Bio-Shock Infanite.  Those are the games you could download in the past 60 Days, all of which can be played Single Player & none are Multiplayer only.  Also these titles are JUST for the PS3, you still have PS4 games on top of that.  ( i have psp & vita that don't need to be listed)  I haven't played Bio-Shock Because I don't have the space to download it because I haven't finished the other games.  $5 says you don't even own a ps4...
