Sony has revealed the six free games that PlayStation Plus members can download for free in September, one of which Plus members had a hand in choosing.

As a result of the Vote to Play initiative, Grow Home will be one of the PS4's free games next month. It's making its debut on PS4 in September and will be free right out of the gate for Plus members. The other two games that Plus members were able to vote for, Armello and Zombie Vikings, will each be 30 percent off from September 1-15.

Grow home is such a joke, no vsync and 30fps cap on a game with no textures.

@Ahiru-San: Don't forget that a lot of games require PS+ for multiplayer.

@Ahiru-San: do you play your games via disc? Do you enjoy it more than digital?

@crxuchilbara: nope, got them all digital (a few games on disc from launch though)

@Ahiru-San: oh ok. I cant play 2 digital games at once on ps4 anymore. I was told I could if I had the disc though.

@crxuchilbara: wow that is lame! I have 2 X1s and I buy a game once and play on both at the same time with a friend/different account.... that's why I only buy digital, so I don't have to have 2 discs (I used to do that on the x360, had 2 consoles as well, before Games On Demand -- I usually bought a second copy of our favorite games just to play at the same time on two consoles)

I thought it was possible on PS4 too... though I only have one PS4, and I don't plan on getting a second anytime soon...

Thank you Sony, you've been helping me to save money by not making PS+ appealing enough to re-sub to month after month!

@BrokenChaos666: I get your point but if you're paying monthly you're really wasting money because that's far more expensive than the yearly sub.

@tinoush: I don't like to generalize the quality of indie games, but there is too many lately!

Sony yet again are giving crap games. Look at xbox and what they are getting. Sony are doing this as they know that they can get away with it. Mugging off their customer base as usual.

@xskyver: For the record, Sony gave away Tomb Raider like 2 years ago, shortly before the remaster was announced.

@xskyver: What are Xbox getting? A remake of a 2 year old game? That is amazing. You know they are only doing this to hopefully sell more Rise of the Tomb raider games.

@Deadlysyns87: of course they are doing this to sell Rise of TR... still a better game then this month offers on PS+

Another Good month.... Man I just can't keep up.... My back log is just growing. Not to mention DC, and PS2, and the FTP games that I have been slacking on.... man Life is just too full. .... and with any time I have crunchyroll has that time....

Work, Family, friends, very little time for games, and I have not been here in a while. Enjoy your youth kids, with all its free time. as it will be gone all to fast.

@Ravenlore_basic: I agree, these free games are great, but they're like an "All you can eat" fest. You think cool! and you download them every month, then next thing you know -- where do I even get the time to play all these??? LOL

I don't play any game without a cinematic story or a lot of multiplayer progression so ps plus is always trash to me, but im sure these same people were crying last month about rocket league but everyone played the shit out of that.

@CallMeDuraSouka: I'm not all indie, but you are right. To much copy and paste success. And when you tell people, they act like they don't know what you mean. Oh yay! Another game with cutsecene intro gameplay. MGS5 Definitely has the best playable cutsecene intro... I was so annoyed when I saw that...

@CallMeDuraSouka: i dont mind indies, i have some i like and a lot i dont.....but they could at least give us something like tomb raider......instead they give us more indie shit

@CallMeDuraSouka: I really dislike comments like this "You don't share my opinion therefore you're a child"

No, just no. I'm 35, I've been playing games on all formats since forever and I find these games to be awful. Grow home just looks so boring, it's another boring platformer with no hook at all. The rest of the games are just as bad.

I personally liked the look of and voted for Armello but unfortunately yet another platformer was voted in and will continue to be till the end of time.

@rhythm-: I have to agree with you. I am 40 and have been playing games since Atari, Colecovision, ect. I still have many "old" systems and have been introducing my kids to older style generation of games. With that said, I don't enjoy most of what PS Plus is offering these days. The games do not appeal to me personally. That doesn't mean that I am kid and expect AAA titles all the time, I just think Sony has taken a "different" stance on what they are offering. Most of the games now are Indie games and lets be honest, they are a lot cheaper than AAA titles. While some of Indie games have been okay for me, most of them I DL, try and then delete. Bottom line, it's all about personal preference and not age based or being spoiled.

@Pelican170: Does someone pay cash to people who make the point that Plus games aren't free?

Seriously, there has to be some reason folks feel that dead horse needs another flogging.

@jimdigby: Do you seriously think they are "free"? Lets break it down for you. If you do not pay $50/year, do you get "free" games? No. If you pay the $50/year, you get online and games. Simple enough to see, that you are in fact paying for the games...

Let alone even worse, that when you stop paying $50/year, the games are taken away from you...

@Pelican170 Indeed.Bad journalism when the say 'free' We are paying for the service,so they are not free.And what a dull month.Still waiting for Tomb Raider or TLOU remaster.:

Looks like I can keep playing ACIV and eventually AC Unity uninterrupted then on my AC-Catch-Up-Before-Syndicate-Drops, since as usual, PS+ this month sucks, started sucking ever since PS+ became mandatory for the PS4 to access the online for it's games.....Guess we'll wait till next month to see what October's Indie Month will let us have...
