What do the changes to PS Plus mean for Sony?

PS-PlusSony dropped two bombshells last week; firstly, Bloodborne will be on PlayStation Plus in March and secondly that PlayStation 3 & VITA games will be dropped from the program in March 2019.

That news has split the community right down the middle and it has created several conspiracy theories as to why Sony would announce it a YEAR in advance. That’s not what games companies do – they are meant to announced something as a reaction to some outside stimulus and announce it as late as humanly possible.

The fact that they have broken the mold suggests that they have something else in the pipeline; presumably to be announced at E3 or possibly closer to March ’19.

playstation-network-vs-xbox-live_590x395

Well, it’s happened again; I’m well behind the news – but we’ve not let it stop us before and we ain’t gonna start now!

Here’s what each service is offering for the month of March; spoiler alert (as if it is a spoiler at this stage) it’s a humdinger! Continue reading

PlayStation Plus & Games With Gold February 2018

psplusAnother month, another “news” article that’s a solid two weeks late, but here nonetheless. I am well aware that you’ve probably played, completed and deleted them off your console in preparation for next month; but this is for my “who wins 2018” post next January.

Here they are, in record-breaking brief fashion; Continue reading

PlayStation Plus VS Games with Gold 2017

psplusEvery year war is waged between Sony and Microsoft fanboys up and down social media and the across the globe – they use absolutely everything they can in order to get the upper hand on their rivals (and their console of choice). In recent years however, this war has been getting decidedly one-sided when it comes to console exclusive games; which has meant that Xbox fanboys have had to resort to looking upon the battlefield of the subscription service – Games with Gold vs PS Plus has become a minefield of the fanboy and it is a dangerous place to be!

Playstation Plus Games June 2017

Another late post (seriously, why bother Luvva). This time it worked in my favour though – if you have no PS Plus Subscription and you sign up for 12 months during June, you will get a free copy of Star Wars Battlefront as a thank you from Sony! Unfortunately; people with an active subscription cannot avail of this offer.

June has officially started which means that the PS Plus games update will happen on Tuesday (as is the schedule) – but “what is included with this update?” I hear you frantically scream at your monitor (silly reader; we can’t hear you through the monitor). Well dear reader, you should already know the answer to that question because they got announced on Wednesday!

It’s the best month in absolutely ages in case you haven’t heard; for those of you who missed the news though, here it is in full! Continue reading

PlayStation Plus Games May 2017

PS-Plus-giugnoIt’s that time of the month again, the last Wednesday – which means only one thing! Gross disappointment and online flaming of Sony’s choice of games for the next months PlayStation Plus offerings!

I’m being facetious of course, PlayStation Plus has actually been very, very good this year! And May looks to be continuing this trend (we as far as the PS4 is concerned) and although it’s not as good as the preceding months it still houses some inspired choices (especially for VITA owners)!

Here they are then – your free games on PlayStation Plus. Continue reading
