For how long will those games be available on PS Plus? What if I can't purchase a PS5 at launch or within the next 2 months?

This would really have looked better had Sony had something like XBox All Access for their platform. This would have truly allowed new PS5 owners to afford the console over time and get Sony a nice set of new subscribers to PS+. Instead, it's just a ho-hum addition to the service and is only tied to the PS5 by some arbitrary lock-in.

Color me unimpressed, to say the least.

Well considering I own all of these titles due to them being dirt cheap the last year or so I hope the list grows.

Come on Sony, talk to me about PS5 games benefits on PS5......that's the whole point on getting a PS5 isn't?...if I wanted to play a collection on ps4 games I would play them on PS4.

Well its all good to be giving some stuff for people to play when they get the console, the bigger problems seems to be just getting the console at the moment.

It's too bad I own almost all of this but it's a welcome sight. I'm more interested in knowing if this is a one off idea or will they build on it.

And it’s a garbage laggy mess. Why do you think sony approached Microsoft for help? Why do you think sonys will be using Microsoft’s Azure? To make psn/ps now work better. Smh.

@tsunami2311: I think it's to draw people over from Xbox or maybe entice the latest generation of up and coming gamers (or at least their parents who are looking at their shallow pockets)

It's a nice feeling buying a console you've never owned knowing you can immediately jump into close to 20 top titles for less than $10 a month and the promise of a couple more PS+ titles every month.

Sure it would have been nicer if it was more directed at existing PS owners but it's hard to complain about getting more without spending more.

Persona 5, Uncharted, Last of Us, Bloodborne & GoW. All very highly acclaimed exclusive, really good for those not yet experienced PlayStation. Got some nice selection of games that I haven't played either.

@sakaixx:

TLOU is average UC4 is average. GOW is an 8/10 Bloodbourne is not my jam or persona.

And these games won’t be getting enhancements like you’ll get on XseX games. There probably straight ports with only slight boosts to FPS and resolutions. If your lucky. Smh.

@cage_92: I don't think people are understanding this correctly. This isn't about backwards compatibility. These are free games you're getting through playstation plus if you get a PS5. So for people who don't own these games, this is a steal!

It's a nice perk if you never owned a PS4 or in the case of several of those titles, an Xbox One. With a few exceptions like Monster Hunter World, almost all of those have been available very cheaply in Black Friday sales or other promotions, along with about a quarter of them having been PS Plus free items in recent years. Plus the used market is fairly flooded with those. So chances are, if you've had a PS4 for a couple years, you likely already own a good portion of that list, possibly all of it.

Nice for customers new or returning to Playstation. A bit useless to those who been on Playstation all along.

So are these on top of our existing Plus library that we've been getting these last years? I feel like it's still a bit unclear. Anyone know?

@drysprocket: Yes , but they don't specify if they will be permanent. So more like free as long as they want them to be free unless they officially post otherwise.

As someone who is now primarily a PC gamer & skipped the PS4 generation, this is a possible selling point for the PS5. I think that list is still a bit short though. I'd like to see Ghost of Tsushima added for sure.

So a bunch of old games?...where is the Last of Us 2?..... Where is Ghost of Tsushima?.... heck where is even the 3 year old Spider-Man and Horizon Zero Dawn?

PS3 era games Resident Evil 5??? Really?

I'm sorry but those games on that list make PlayStation look like a charity subscription.

@johnny0779: About the absence of Spider-man, they prefer to let Insomniac Games entice people to buy the ultimate edition of Spiderman Miles Morales which will include a remastered version of the PS4 game.

I have all of those games already though I would hope that like Game Pass the titles get changed out every month.

@Fandango_Letho: Well, thats if you subscribe to PS Plus.. But I was looking at the launch games for ps5...

For the ps plus games listed above, I shouldnt have said horrible for those, they are just old games. I would imagine most have played them already.

The new games for PS5 is what I meant to say was horrible.

That's a good list of games, for people who haven't played them already. I guess it also confirms all of those titles are BC if you own the PS4 version. Good to know. I wonder if they are also being 'updated' to take full advantage of the system.
