Yeah! Tom Mc Shea was kind enough to give you a slide THIS TIME, Sony, but don't you dare let it happen again! A soccer game! IN AMERICA!? Who the hell would possibly want something like that!?


One of the 53 MILLION peoples of Hispanic descent currently living in the United States: "Well, about that..."


NOBODY AT ALL!


One of the several million European expats also currently residing in the United States: "Umm..."


NOBODY. AT. ALL. THANK YOU TOM MC SHEA FOR SAYING WHAT EVERYBODY (ie: clueless white Americans whose children AREN'T currently in a soccer league) WAS ALREADY THINKING!

come on tom, i'm sure there are tons of people in the US who enjoy soccer games...and i think many just haven't given them a chance for the same reason. if i hadn't tried the fifa 14 demo on ps3, i would've never bought it on ps4 and i absolutely love that game. i keep coming back to it as it's very deep and complex, and actually takes skill to win (unlike say basketball games). i for one, am not very into sports, but i do recognize fun and addictive gameplay. looking forward to trying out PES as this will be my first in the series!

Honestly I am bored about war if PS+ is free or not. It´s great thing. Anyway I dont think this is let down, if you dont like soccer so dont play it. I usually dont like puzzle game and i´am not angry if it is on PS+. Everybody like somethink other.

I agree that Sony did a big mistake in next month line up. 

Only one worth mentioning is puppeteer. The rest is not good.

Woo! Puppeteer! I'll definitely be getting that.

As for those that keep complaining that these are not free games don't seem to understand the value of the service. You're getting over $1,000 worth of product for only $50. So you may technically be paying for one, maybe two triple A games, the rest are free. It's still a great service, one that has saved me a lot of money. 

I don't have a large income and certainly not one to pick up many games, so it's been great for me. I didn't have the money to get Tomb Raider, Uncharted 3, X-Com, and now Puppeteer, so it's great for me.

Stop focusing on semantics over the word "free" and understand that it's just a great service.

Tom is would be nice if you "advertise" stuff correctly. These games are not free, its part of the service. You NEED to pay for PS+ to have access to these games. You know this.

Oh man, I haven't even finished Tomb Raider and Arkham City yet, and now Puppeteer and PES14 are coming. Not fair Sony, not fair.

If you pay for access to something, it's not free.

Soccer game. In America! I kind of a dig a push for the most globally accepted sport/game to an otherwise unwitting audience. (This is not an insult, just that it's something we wouldn't usually think to pick up)

Definitely getting Limbo.  Anybody seen the "Game Idiot" where Bryan tries to play it?

SO Glad I didn't sign up for PS+ yet... (owning PS3 and PS4)... Thanks god. No games what so ever since the PS4 came out. I will subscribe for a year of PS+ the moment  some decent lineup of games come out or some decent multiplayer games will be available.

Btw, how is Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer? did anyone tried it yet? is it worth it?

Commentator is the worst. It's a soccer game and one of the best and it's also the latest in the series. Deosn't matter if Stick It To the Man wasn't cross buy. I've always wanted to play Skullgirls but was pushed back by spending alot of my time on Marvel

Chronologo

Aside from Pupeeter there's nothing worth this month. PES 2014? Fifa 14 is way better.

ps4 always gets these lame indie games which is understandable because it's only been out for 6 months. i want something better for the ps4 free games lineup. mercenary kings was just ok and i'm sure i'll like stick it to the man. But since resogun, there hasn't been an awesome free game.

PS3 has another great line-up this month, I've always been meaning to buy the Puppeteer and Skullgirls.

Soccer is an insanely boring sport. If I wanted to watch someone kick around a ball for two and a half hours only for the score to end 0-1 all I ask is for the bleachers to collapse on both sides just so a little excitement can happen.

he really did it... he tried to pun the Last of Us fail...

Tom really just stop, please stop, there's a problem when according to GS Pupetter is better the The last of Us, it was a mistake by you and you should correct it instead of laughing about it, TLoU should have gotten a 9/9.5 out of 10 not 8.5...

Good thing I play BF 4 and The Show is coming out, or PS Plus would be useless to me as a user so far on PS4.. Resogun and Contrast I have gotten no use out of. Resogun seems fun just not my type, got about an hour of use.. Contrast worst game ever lol. Outlast was the good one, but only about halfway through and who knows if ill play again. M Kings... weak.. Don't starve is another game I atleast got some use out of..  Here's Hoping Stick it is somewhat good.. Rather get more Plus discounts then the games we got so far. I know its early and this is just my opinion as a good paying customer.. No good for me. BTW FF 14 is great

@jerusaelem  i live in CA and hispanics dont have internet much less would pay for plus.there into physical copys only and used ones at that.

@campbell22  I think its a great service and its the main reason I have the service because of the games that comes with it. But to claim its free is factually absurd.

@KelboDelta How did they mess up? If only 1 game is actually GREAT, at least they gave you something fun to play and the rest of the games got good scores as well.

@RedWave247  You didn't save money, you just gained some free games, which is still great, but there's a big difference. Don't let marketing tactics fool you.

Pedro
Pedro

@RedWave247 You are paying as you clearly stated. This is not semantics this is making a INCORRECT statement. It is factually wrong to consider these games that come with the SERVICE free.

jerusaelem

@Pedro  With PS+, what you're paying for the ability to connect to the PS+ network. That's it. Beyond that transaction, Sony owes you nothing. That said, they games they provide beyond that transaction are completely free of charge, as they do not cost you any additional fees beyond what you would be paying for in the first place. 


And no you don't NEED to pay for PS+ to have access to these games. That's absurd. Unless it's a PS+ exclusive title, every one of these games can be easily purchased on their own. They're not twisting anyone's arm and you're grasping at straws.

@Pedro  Except in the long run, you do wind up getting these for free. Through this service, you wind up getting well over $1,000 worth of product over the course of a year. So you pay $50 for over $1,000 worth of stuff. Meaning that yes, most are free.

@shinjuki I know what you mean but only USA calls the game "Soccer" where everywhere else in the world of course as you know says Football. Another point; America could also mean South America, where it is also called Football. Stupid Gamespot hacks as usual haha!

@GunEye  There's few games worth getting either new system, anyway. Why did you get a PS4 so soon? It's common knowledge that it's better to wait at least a year after a new system is out.

@GunEye  yes iv got it and its a good game online not much as in custumising loadouts but it is a good game both campain and online pluss you can get now for £15 so worth buying.

@PlasmaBeam44  Yea its 90 mins... with a 15 min break .. not sure how that equals 2 and a half hours but hayho,

@PlasmaBeam44 it's really more than kicking a ball. It's way too technical sport. Think of it as war with the best merchs, defense systems, and attackers all commanded to win the war. I see it as a  strategy sport more than a muscle sport

@Pedro @campbell22   Well it´s youre opinion and I respect that. And I dont say it´s 100% free. It´s just I really being bored about this fact. It´s really stupid flamewar, and even so I paid for it(i love ps+) it´s my money so i can say if I want this PS+ or not.

RedWave247

@Freeze-dried @RedWave247  Sure I did. I intended on buying the Tomb Raider remake at some point, but was waiting for the price to drop. Same for X-Box. But I couldn't afford either right now, with my financial situation. Now I don't have to buy them, so I saved myself over $50 from those alone.

RedWave247

@Pedro @RedWave247  I don't understand why anyone should bother arguing with it at all, honestly. It's still a great service with a lot of value for people like me who don't have the luxury of a high budget to spend on video games.

Pedro

@jerusaelem Fortunately that is not the case and you are speaking ABSOLUTE rubbish. PS+ according to Sony's only docs and adds offers games as part of the service. Stop spewing nonsense. This is not a free or a favor. It is part of the service. And I am simply stating that you need to PAY to access these games. Read buddy read. No where did I state that it was exclusive. Geesh.

Pedro
Pedro

@RedWave247 Free is no cost. It does not matter if you are saving money the FACT that you need to spend money automatically negates it from being considered free. Lets not get into the habit of redefining words. Also you claim of $1000 in "products" is rather ridiculous.

I like inches to feet honestly. Seems like people want to boast about the metric system being "universal", but that's very presumptuous, right? It's a human on earth method. I'm almost certain that when we reach out to other lives in the universe they will have their very own method of measurement, if they care to have such a thing at all. Shall we force them to use the metric system as well?

Pedro
Pedro

@campbell22 @Pedro It is my opinion that the service is great however, it is not my opinion that the games offered is not free cause its part of the service. That's like making the claim that Netflix offers free movies with service. Also I am not sure why you personalized this and took it as an attack on your spending habits. That is a rather bizarre twist and interpretation on the topic at hand.

Pedro
Pedro

@RedWave247 @Pedro I agree 100% that the service is awesome.. The game offering is the sole reason I purchased the service. But it is still incorrect to claim the games offered are free.

Pedro

@RedWave247  It makes no sense arguing with anyone who believes PAYING  == FREE.

RedWave247
RedWave247

@Pedro @RedWave247  Well, let's look at the numbers shall we? Going by prices on PSN (and prices will vary), PES 14 is $29.99. Puppeteer is $39.99. That's about $70. Then you have Limbo, Skullgirls, and Surge Deluxe for $10 a piece, adding another $30.

So, for $50, you get $100 worth of product just in one month alone. At least half of those games, then, would essentially be free because you're not paying the other $50 to play them, now are you? Now, if every month is about the same value (which most times, it is), that's $100 of product per month for only a $50 annual fee.

You're right. $1,000 was ridiculous. Using BASIC MATH, the total is closer to $1,200 in value.
