Sony's subscription service continues to offer a great value for PlayStation owners.

Following up on December's offer of a free copy Borderlands 2 for PlayStation Plus subscribers, Sony is upping the ante for January. Starting January 2014, PS+ members on PlayStation 3 can download a free copy of BioShock Infinite, DmC: Devil May Cry, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

PlayStation 4 owners will be able to download the indie hit Don't Starve. And Vita owners will be able to download Worms: Battle Island and Smart As...

PS+ is Sony's subscription service that provides several member benefits including access to a rotating "instant game collection." The game's are only available to active PS+ members, and they are generally only available to download for free for a limited time (though once you've added them to your account, you can redownload the game again at any time).

PS+ is mandatory for online play in PlayStation 4 games. The service typically sells for $18 for three months or $50 for one year.

I am definitely looking forward to this, I had three months PlayStation Plus subscription on my PS3, and now a full year that I put on my PS4. I am really looking forward to this, I completed Bioshock: Infinite on the Xbox 360, and I haven't played Brothers: AToTS and DmC, so it's worth it to still be a member.


Just wondering fellas and gals, if I have the PS+ subscription for a year and have used the code on my PS4, but on the same profile as the one on my PS3, does that mean I have a year subscription on both consoles, to get these games on both consoles? Any help is appreciated.

Nope, I don't think they announced the specific date.


My best guess is that it'll be in the next PS Store update, which should be on Tuesday, January 7th.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>psshhhhh...just to let you know, we usually don't pay $60 bucks on PC like console players do on the inferior versions of games and it's more than just "slightly better graphics". Anyway! Those games being no matter what platform is a win in my book. Also never had a problem with PSN so why the beef with it?

Your assessment of DMC is ridiculous. It is one of the best games released last year. Sorry it wasn't to your liking... but calling it "trash" just make you look like an idiot.


DEVIL MAY CRY 2 is trash.

For all of those wondering about DMC...

Don't listen to the haters. They make this game sound terrible... but it's actually a lot of fun. DMC is well worth a playthrough.

Having played almost all of the DEVIL MAY CRY games (and enjoyed them), DMC is by far my favorite. Why? The story. This is the first DMC game where I actually cared what happened in the end -- where, like a good movie, I got goosebumps during the final battle. That final battle was classic storytelling at its best. Yes, combat is somewhat simplified for the series, but it's still a lot of fun -- and clearly meant to be played multiple times while re-playing levels for "hidden" loot. And while Dante isn't as consistently ridiculously irreverent as previous titles, he's very relateable and still has got and edge; the "swearing war" between Dante and a particular demon was priceless.

The vocal minority that blasted this game on release (and even pre-release) really did DMC a disservice. DMC is a worthy addition to the DEVIL MAY CRY series if for no other reason than the story is so well done. Perfect? No... but if we want to quibble, none of the DMC titles have even been perfect.

@battlefront1943

I did like DMC for story, and the fact that the cut scenes were so well done, sometimes I almost believed they were real people.

Still, DmC3 still wins for fun and outrageous cutscenes. And I still prefer DmC3's gameplay, especially since the bosses don't suck.

Oh, and it didn't help anything that in the new game, Vergil's story has no bosses, and he can't do Bloody Palace. What the hell? I'd actually rather they had done the lazy thing DmC3 did and just let you play as Vergil through Dante's story. At least then you'd have something to do as Vergil, rather than just those disappoint DLC levels.

Still, overall I agree. The new game is good. Not without problems, but well worth playing, especially if you can download it for free.

<< LINK REMOVED >> You gotta remember that PS4 is not backwards compatible because the entire architecture of the system is different and the PS3 games are not written to function on a PS4. I have a feeling that for the next few months we will only be seeing indie games for free on the PS4, but you can't beat the free games PS3 is getting.

Because it only has like 30 games out right now.

If they gave it the PS3 treatment we would get every single game for free in less than a year.

Wow. Cant wait to play DmC....loved the little i played. I heard Brothers was great and Dont Starve looks like a treat. So glad i scored the Gamestop $30 year of PS+. If you keep your eyes pealed you can get an amazing deal and pay even less for a Playstation Plus membership. I got 15 months for 49.99 last summer and another year for $30 a couple weeks ago. Thats less than 3 bucks a month. Im glad i went with Sony for next gen.

So, this is when all the DMC haters who made the net a horrible place to be for months and who claimed they would never buy or play the game quietly realise they quite like it but can never tell anyone...

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>Simply put and well said. If that makes me a hater so be it (so sue me if I like old, eh?). So it can stay where it's at. And while Bioshock Infinite seems cool, I ain't big on FPS shooter games either....so Brothers for me it is I guess.
