For all of you saying that Xbox got better games this month I don't think so. Crimson Dragon has like a 55 metacritic score and Strike Suit Zero only appeals to a small group. Ya'll are really jealous of that?


Let them know! Get your connections and a mod or two and whip all these **bleep** into shape.

 

STOP **bleep** PAYING FOR PLUS IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT. STOP POSTING ON THE FORUMS IF YOU ARE JUST GOING TO SUCK **bleep** ALL THE TIME.

Online play paywall, You don't have an option if you play online.  So complaining is valid. It wasn't valid last year because Playstation Plus was optional, now for a majority of people it's mandatory.

 

But that said. I don't even care, I gave up caring about the paywall a long time ago.

This is an outrage!! Where is my Madden 15 on ps4 for August?! Destiny is free in September right? Shadows of Mordor for October, we demand it! Dragon Age: Inquisition for November or riot! 

 

In all seriousness this is one of the best months for PS+. I planned on grabbing Road Not Taken on day 1. Did not expect that as a freebie for plus upon release. Score!!! I almost bought Dragon's Crown last week too. Glad I held off! Keep up the good work! :smileyvery-happy:

I don't know where you're seeing people demanding launch titles. I know the majority of the complainers aren't delusional enough to believe we would get those games. I think much of their frustration comes with the lack of variety and popularity here. You have to admit that the ps4 games really cater to a specific audience. Games like Road Not Taken and Don't Starve work well for gamers like you and me who are actively involved in the Playstation community. For the majority of ps4 owners, they aren't interested in playing those games.

 

Sony kind of made it look like they were going in a different direction when they introduced the ps4. When they announced that we would be getting a version of Driveclub for free, it sounded like we would be getting to play at least a large portion of brand new retail games. I'm not sure why they haven't tried it with other games yet; maybe they still want to use Driveclub as the guinea pig. Regardless, I'm not surprised that some people are disappointed that we still haven't gotten into some bigger titles than the $15 ones we've gotten so far.

 

I know it's still early, but Sony should start giving some bigger games soon. A game like Knack has certainly leveled off in sales by now and would make more of a splash. Also, don't forget that free games only last for a month now. Sony has a little more incentive now to put some bigger games in the plus selection.

^^ It's still so early though. We didn't get anything noteworthy in ps+ for about a year on the ps3 and there was a massive catalogue available when it launched. We'll start seeing AAA games when the ps4 AAA catalogue has expanded exponentially. All in due time my friends! :smileyvery-happy: Game on!!! :smileyhappy:

I don't think anyone serious expects AAA for the PS4 in their PS+ subscription, no one other than spoiled brats and newcomers. There's so little available at the moment, sales will remain strong for the decent  PS4 games due to the rather limited choice. With the exeption of Knack, which tanked. I can see Second Son hitting PS+ before the end of the year, but nothing else.

 

If people don't think they're getting value, they should cancel the service and come back in a year or two.

Online players cannot do that.

Just noticed that both Road Not Taken and Metrico are Day 1 free games. Pleasantly surprised.

If PlayStation Plus wasn't required to access online play, the majority of people would cancel.  That's why we're forced to pay the monthly subscription for online access, on top of our purchase of the system, and every game.
