PS Plus August 2014 update to silence doubters

By Alan Ng - Jul 16, 2014

As most of you are aware, Sony has offered up Towerfall Ascension and Strider as the free PS4 games on PS Plus for July. As usual though, some gamers are still not happy with the free content that Sony has provided and are already asking questions on what Sony plans to do to improve the quality of games with regards to the PS Plus August 2014 update.

While Sony will always have to put up with constant complaints on how the games are not good enough on PS Plus, we really recommend you try out indie game Towerfall Ascension first as it’s amazing and well worth the inclusion for this month.

With this said though, let’s look forward to the August update and the PS Plus August two free PS4 games that Sony will offer. We have a feeling that Sony may stick to the ‘one indie’ game rule with their update and include another game that perhaps most gamers may not have heard of.

For potential clues on what games could be selected, we can look at the upcoming PS4 release dates for August 2014 and see if they provide any hints. You’ll be surprised to see that there are a lot of PS4 games that are due next month, some of which are indie titles which could appear as one of the PS Plus games.

the-swapper-ps4

These include The Swapper, a puzzle platform game that was released in May 2013 for Windows, but will be coming to PS4 in August after excellent reviews – including a 9.3/10 from IGN and a 9.25/10 from Game Informer.

Hohokum

Hohokum

Other games on the way include Hohokum, a bright vibrant animated game in development from Sony Monica Studios and Honeycomb, whilst being published by Sony – don’t be surprised if this is one of the games that shows up on PS Plus in August.

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare on PS4

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare on PS4

You will also be pleasantly surprised to hear that August will be the month when Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare finally makes its appearance on PS4. It has been available to play on Xbox 360 and Xbox One since February, but the popular game from Pop Cap could be an amazing experience on PS Plus when playing with friends.

road-not-taken-ps4

Road not Taken is due out in August too and is probably a game that has slipped under the radar. Think of a “The Snowman” style story and art, mixed with a puzzle RPG gameplay format – it could be another one to look out for next month as a secret success.

Above are the indie games that may make an appearance on PS Plus, now though, we move on to the big hitters and the games to be excited about if they are included next month on the list.

Madden NFL 2015 is due out, as is Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition, but given the scale of these games they are almost certain to be given their own separate releases as there’s no way you are going to get them for nothing.

metro-redux-ps4

Metro: Redux on the other hand is a compilation of the first two Metro games, those being Metro Last Light and Metro 2033 which were released many years ago. Sony needs one big name at least and we wouldn’t be surprised if Metro Redux is up for contention.

Last but certainly not least, the glorious arrival of Minecraft PS4 Edition is coming in August. The game seems to have been in development by 4J Studios for an eternity, but at long last it will finally be available for purchase in just a few weeks.

Could Sony spring a massive surprise though, by making Minecraft PS4 Edition free for PS Plus subscribers for the August update? It could do wonders for their reputation and firmly silence the doubters who say that Sony has not offered any big name and desired titles over the last few PS Plus updates.

Having said that, Sony already has a $4.99 upgrade program in place for those that bought Minecraft PS3 Edition from PSN, so perhaps it’s just too much to ask for by making Minecraft PS4 free altogether.

Take a look at all of the games that are coming out in August and let us know which ones you believe may have a chance of appearing for the PlayStation Plus August 2014 update. Will Knack finally be chosen by popular demand? Let us know your thoughts in the comments, especially if we missed any games which you think should be on the August list.

    Look, the ps plus subscription may seem like an amazing deal for some people, you may love indie games and you not mind paying for the ability to play online, i personally wouldent call you an idiot for that point of view,, but that is your opinion some people dont like indie games,, just because you think these games are amazing doesent make them amazing does it? I happen to like indie games but i could go without quite happily,, when i owned my ps3 i opted out of the subscription because i simply dident need it! I must have it now though if i am to get the most out of my massively over priced games! I noticed a bundle offer on the store today at £85!! And if i buy a new game im likely to pay £55 for it,, next gen you say,, yeah im happy to pay the extra for next gen, when you show me a next gen title! But maybe people are hacked off with the games that are ‘free’ because they have no choice but to subscribe when previously they wouldent have? Maybe its also because of the massive price hike on games and the fact you seem to pay more to get a digital copy of a game you could get in stores? Maybe its because they are sick of getting ‘free’ games that they have already paid for on other platforms? Or a game they played to death 10 years ago? There are a million reasons why people feel ripped off, because they see no value in what they are getting,, and before anyone says that someone else doesent deserve to be a gamer or they arent a proper gamer, check your birth certificate or ask your mommy most of us have been playing games for a very long time,, games that we had to program into the system before we could play them but you were probably swimming around in your dads bag back then! Gamers isent definable its something we share i think some people forget that!! Finally,, i would opt out of the subscription if i could, i like indie games and i will buy the ones i want,, i have done but i would still jave only spent a tenner maybe 15 quid since launch so i reckon i need to get another 25 quids worth out of them,, it seems unlikey!! But i have faith Thankyou and goodbye

    WTF? not fair at all, what about PS3 Subscribers?

    We had Minecraft for over a year and is not going to be gifted as part of IGC for free, and it’s actually going to be free for PS4 Plus Subscribers?

    Where’s the list for August Line-up for PS3? I don’t see any games listed there!

  • Dawn Reaper

    I have nothing against all the games other than like a few people that got the console a few months later we missed out on the early line up.
    what would be great is around Christmas they added all the games since PS4 release for just 1 month maybe do the same thing each year but only the last 12 months to give people a bit of a chance to see what they missed out on.

    • Dawn Reaper

      one last thing stop giving different games to different parts of the world it’s unfair on everyone else.

  • crystalsmith

    i hate psn plus cos all we get is indy games not good games

    • Derek

      Brothers, Lone Survivor, Hotline Miami, Stealth inc, Ibb and Obb are all awesome indie games

    • Dragoon893

      indie games are good dumbass

  • Hammygas

    I’m really confused by all the hate on PS Plus. I don’t get how sony providing between 2-6 free games to you each month (Depending on console ownership) makes you feel like you are getting ripped off. PS Plus has allowed me to save money from purchasing new games, and allowed me to discover games that I may have never played otherwise. Below is a full list of title that I have gotten free from PS plus for PS4 and my thoughts on them.

    Contrast – This is a fun platformer that I had seen others play previously, but I have not yet played myself. I have not yet started it since I have been pulled away by other games on this list.

    Resogun – Possibly the most fun I’ve had with a ship shooter since NES. Very difficult, but very fair with great replay value, PLUS a free update that provided local coop. I have since purchased the season pass.

    Don’t Starve – I’m not a big fan of the survival genre (Survival horror is qu9ite fun however), but the sense of humor was quite good for this game, and I find myself playing it in short bursts when I want something different. Not something I would spend ten bucks on, but I’m happy it’s in my library.

    Outlast – Truly good horror game that makes me have to watch or play something light-hearted before I go to sleep. I struggle to finish it because I’m a wuss and I sometimes avoid it so I’m not frightened.

    Dead Nation – The first PS3 remake released. Some might not like this, but I enjoyed having a solid twin stick shooter to play with friends on my new system.

    Mercenary Kings – Another game that has local multiplayer that has a great style and sense of humor. I love having an excuse for old school side scrolling shooting.

    Stick it to the Man! – An excellent puzzle platformer that uses the controller speaker well to add some charm. Feels very Tim Schafer-esque, and I would gladly pay ten bucks to pick it up if I hadn’t gotten it free

    PixelJunk Shooter – One of my favorite games to play with friends on PS3, once again a happy excuse to play with friends.

    Trine 2 – I played with my brother for a bit, and I feel that the puzzles seemed weakened by the ability to solve them with any character. It seems as though there was depth and fun factor missing from this game.

    Doki-Doki Universe – I have not played nor know anything about this game yet. Maybe I’ll play it tonight.

    Strider – really fun fast paced metroidvania still side scrolling beatemup. great to pick up for some fast action.

    Towerfall: Ascension – Hands-down the reason I went out and bought 2 more controllers. I was considering dusting off my gamecube for some smash bros action, but this game entirely filled that void with something wonderfully familiar yet fantasticially fresh and new. Incredible easy to pick up and learn, which is exactly what I want from any game that I want to play with friends.

    This is what I have gotten free since getting my PS4 at Christmas, and I still have another 5 months for the $50 of ps plus. By my calculation Resogun, Towerfall, Outlast, Stick it to the Man, Strider have already covered the cost, and the other games have brought me fun along the way as well.

    Overall, I just want to say that games will keep coming to PS plus, and I would rather be discovering games in this way than getting titles that I already have significant preconceived notions about. Please stop hatefully complaining about a service is all about fan service, and provide constructive feedback if you feel it is falling short. Other people’s opinions are not invalid, so respect that the games up for free are there to be played, and give them a shot.

    • JonTheGod

      THANK YOU! I can’t stand all these haters. £40 for a year, gets you SEVENTY-TWO games across all three systems!! How can you complain at that. It’s good value if you only got one game per month, but you get 6! I totally agree with you on Towerfall; I feel a strong urge to buy 2 extra controllers too. :)

    • Moose

      You are so right

  • Frohawk17

    I’m ready for some 1080p Games gta 5 and the last of us

  • andre

    Please stop with al the garbage. If i want an arcade game I’ll go pay 50 cents and play one not 50 dollars like i did for plus. Give us just 1 good non arcade title game to justify the price for plus. Got my moneys worth on PS3 easily. And yes i get there are only so many titles available, so stand up and unbunch those panties before you use that argument.

    • hojam maximus

      good thing you only pay 1 subscription and it covers ps3, ps4 and vita… so you got your monies worth. just like you said

      • hopeofalegend

        why are you getting your monies worth if you only own a ps4 ?
        explain it to me because I cant see it
        ps4 have had games what aren’t even worth being out as games
        and not everyone owns all 3 I don’t get why u would own a ps3 and a ps4
        so you own a ps4 no other device and in 8 months the best games are both remakes/remastered and this is next gen LOL pathetic I cant believe how bad the ps4 is compared to the ps3, yeah in the long run it will be the boss but we are here and now and I (and millions more) feel that sony are giving us scraps and calling them gold. killzone knack, assassins creed fifa FFS anything other than idie games they SUCK and don’t sell for a reason

        • Dragoon893

          are you dumb? indie games are incredible, and they do deserve to be games. you saying they dont shows that YOU dont deserve to be a gamer. indie games do sell, and they sell a lot. suck ass, dipshit.

        • hopeofalegend

          so your telling me that people are willing to spend £350-£400 for a ps4 to play games that can be played on a Gameboy LOL, did you know that 18% of indie games get scrapped for pricing on launch day and that 63% get discounted within 50 days and you think there worth the money. if your happy playing shitty little games buy a android tablet download all the emulators you want. psp,gbc,gba,ng4,nes,ds then you can do what you want instead of encouraging them to make more indies THEY SUCK. and you have the cheek to say im not a gamer ? your just a boy

        • JonTheGod

          So you only have a PS4? Fine. You want AAA games? Go buy one for £50 off the shelf. Your £40/year PS+ subscription is for online play; the free games you get included as part of the IGC are a bonus. You now get 2 free PS4 games per month, which equates to £1.67 per game per month. If you have a PS3 and a Vita as well, then you get SIX games per month for free, but factoring in the annual subscription, it works out at £0.56 (rounded up) per game. So let me get this straight….. you expect Sony to just give you a AAA title (such as Killzone) to you for between 56p and £1.67? Go buy an Xbox; this ‘entitled’ attitude from whiny PS+ members just pees me off. It’s ridiculous value; the “Indie” games that we’ve been getting are stunning. Did you even play Towerfall? Or Pixeljunk Shooter? Resogun? Fez? There’s SO much variety and new ideas coming through these games. Please enlighten us: what games were you expecting in the first year of PS4? What do you think you are “owed” for your £1.67 contribution?

        • hopeofalegend

          as I said before you annoying little boy I have owned ps+ since the beginning so my argument is unless you own all the devices you are losing out, why should someone who owns a ps4 have to pay but someone on ps3 doesn’t ? the 200+ games I have on ps3 through ps+ what happens to all the games I have on there? they rot because sony care to much about profit than customers.
          back to the ps4…. I hate little kids like you who thinks indies are good value THERE NOT they are shi**y little games you can play on any device so why would you waste your time doing it on the SO CALLED greatest console, sony have said over and over that the graphics and this and that are amazing well I have owned killzone,knack,assassins,bf4,watchdogs,fifa,theif,infamous and none of them wowed me and by the sounds all 95% of the gamers including IGN and GAMESPOT the ps4s 1st year (almost) has been terrible. so tell me this are we the 95% wrong or are the 5% who probably doesn’t no anything about gaming wrong YEAH BYE…… OH 56P TO RENT NOT TO OWN

        • JonTheGod

          Calling me a little boy or a little kid twice in a post? Very mature of you; blind also, as you can clearly see my profile pic next to my post. I put forward a reasoned discussion, yet you retort with name-calling, primary school level writing skills and swearing; well done. Try to discuss your points rather than just venting your anger at people; you gain more respect and are less likely to look foolish.

        • hopeofalegend

          do you think I care what you think ? and I cant see you pic on my phone unless I click on you which I just did and now I think your just pathetic GROW UP your married and your moaning and writing about computer games lol….. maybe stop sending your time working out how much a game per month cost and keep an eye on your mrs because she cant be happy with you. you punched why above your weigh on that one bet shes cheated on you while you playing candy crush you loser hahahahahaha

        • hopeofalegend

          scratch that I just had a look at her and she looks like a hawk lol nice nosejob for Christmas I think

        • JonTheGod

          Man, I’d hate to live in your world if that’s how you see people. But you’re right on one point, my wife’s an amazing woman. Thanks. I’m bored of you now. Good luck with life; I have a feeling that you’ll need all the help you can get.

        • hopeofalegend

          lol im doing alright tbh bud, I own my own removals company and im only 22 so stick that in your pipe and smoke it……. your wife isn’t that great best thing about her is distance and the dark

        • hopeofalegend

          I have just been reading some of your posts and you have the cheek to call me a moaner hahahahhahahahaha wow deluded go read your comics you sad little man. on a serious note ps+ hasn’t gave anything like what they said they was going to driveclub ? now there saying its not

        • Dragoon893

          so you ARE dumb. thanks for answering my quest, dumbass.

        • hopeofalegend

          as I said before buy yourself a nexus 7 and get all the old school games you want, don’t understand why anyone would want to play them on the ps4 ? and its question not quest dumbass

        • Dragoon893

          pls just die ur an embarassment to gamers.

        • hopeofalegend

          have you noticed everyone on here hates you, are the only one who likes childish games. I think it says it all YOUR A LONER GO PLAY POKEMON BY YOURSELF

    • Dragoon893

      you are getting your monies worth from the indie games, lol.

  • The Chosen One

    Would absolutely LOVE METRO REDUX on PS+

    The games haven’t been great so far.
    Downloaded them all but not played a single one except Resogun.

    Was going to buy Last Of Us and Redux but I have a feeling both will be on PS+ by the end of the year so holding out.

    • rdunc

      i wouldnt hold out hope for last of us on plus, especially the remaster, sony will make more off that game in the next 6 months than they would from the boost in ps plus subs they get. as for metro redux i never played the first but i found last light to be pretty dull, thats just me though

    • JonTheGod

      I’d be very surprised to see either TLOU or Redux on PS+ this year; maybe 12-18 months down the road, but not yet. Driveclub and Knack will most likely lead the way with retail games coming to Plus.

  • atomicjuicer

    I bought a PS4 day one and I have to say that plus has been a complete waste of time.

    I bought the kinectless Xbox one and I find myself playing KI and TF too.

    The PS4 seems to have nothing worthy to play. – I can play mobile crap on my iPhone so indies can suck it

    • Gregers

      Then ps plus games so far, whilst not aaa titles, have been great. Pixeljunk, resogun, stock it to the man, towerfall ascension, dont starve and strider have all been great fun.

      Maybe try them out rather than your “indie sucks” mentality. Or just keep playing cod and cod ripoffs like titanfall and continue to suck creativity out of the industry

      • atomicjuicer

        I do buy indies! but including them as part of a paid service like plus is a bloody ripoff.

        I can pick these titles up myself for pittance – where’s the plus value here? If they want indies only then say that upfront and give us like 5 of them each time to make up for the equivalent value of the AAAs we haven’t received this year.

        • Josh101

          My question is simply this. If you were a publisher and Sony asked you to put your brand new AAA game on PS+, what would you say? A few points before you answer. There is a VERY limited amount of AAA titles available. This is the launch of a brand new system, where the bulk of sales for launch games comes from the sheer lack of titles available. Again, what would you say? Hint: Absolutely NOT. Your company would be sitting where Crytek is right now since they went exclusive with Ryse and being offered as a free game.

        • atomicjuicer

          I thought this would have been common sense but obviously not:

          Sony PAY the AAA dev. Same as Titanfall exclusivity for Microsoft.

        • Josh101

          Nowhere near as much as they would make on launch sales. Thought that would be common sense.

        • atomicjuicer

          Microsoft paid a fortune for TF.

        • Josh101

          TO BE EXCLUSIVE TO THE CONSOLE. It is NOT the same as having your game given away as a PS+ game. Not the same at all.

        • atomicjuicer

          But it WOULD BE if Sony ponied up the dough.

          But no.

          They’re happy to leach us all dry for online services and Indy games that probably cost them 1cent per download in license fees to the cheap devs.

          Again, I’m not seeing the value for the customer here and ill be quitting plus fairly soon if they keep cheaping out.

          I already pay money to charities so I don’t need another one.

        • hojam maximus

          are you retarded atomicjuicer????…it is not the same as titanfall! yeah MS paid alot for it but hey even the devs wanted on ps4 and they’re game was never free on xbox (nor is titanfall and exclusive! its on pc. and the better choice to play the silly little amusement) and why do you think ps plus has no value? sony could have done what MS did and not give you anything and still charge.
          hell on the xbox one without a subscription all you get is a paper wieght and skype. with ps plus you get a variety of games that come with a NEW console?… do you remember what was launching with the ps3 and 360 when they came out 10 years ago? call of duty 2, and amped for 360 and ps3 had resistance and gundam. yeah that long ago!….
          so the consoles havnt even been out for a year and your bitching. and i dont hear you going on about the games for gold on 360 giving out games that were released over 7 years ago, assassins creed 2? yeah like we all havnt played that yet. at least with the ps plus you are getting games that are at least current for the latest console. and hey, they arent cod so i think thats a win (yes!, if you have played 1 cod you have played them all. its the same game retextured to look pretty every year and dumb shits still buy the gimmick)!

        • atomicjuicer

          Wow, you haven’t read any of my comments you’ve just assumed my opinion.

          I deliberately said Microsoft exclusive – because I actually know what im talking about. I didn’t say Xbox exclusive.

          You’re bringing nothing new to this conversation – just tired old arguments.

          COD has gone through rough times its true but if you’re writing off the upcoming COD just because of the franchise then you’ll miss out.

          Sony are dropping their standards with plus and people like me (who can see the standard dropping in comparison to 2012 and 2013) are here to stand up and say it like it is.

          Paying for online, no AAA in plus, and a lack of blockbuster exclusives planned for the future means Sony is rapidly following Xbox mistakes, while Xbox is improving every single month. You can watch 3d movies on Xbox now but not PS4!!? WTF

          Sony realized at the end of 2013 that they had a great reputation with gamers and so they just SAT ON THEIR ASSES for all of 2014 while Microsoft clawed back.

          Wake up to their cheap lazy policies before the future of console gaming is damaged further please.

        • Chewie McChew

          Can’t we all just agree that X1 and PS4 are just different consoles? With each one having great things?

          Maybe X1 can play 3D movies because is more of an entertaining system than a gaming system, but don’t get me wrong, I know it can provide you with amazing graphics with it’s set of games, but as I said, I think it’s MORE of an entertaining system than a gaming system all around.

          And I think I heard at the Sony/PS4 conference last year that it WAS going to let future indie developers just basically go nuts on their gaming system, or so I think… so in my most humble opinion, I see PS4 as a gaming system rather than an entertaining system.

          And about the PS+, like most people have said before (probably gonna sound as a broken disc) YES, people shouldn’t expect a huge impact right away because is has only been on the market just for a few months… And people should at least just give it a try before calling an indie game ”crap”.
          Yes, I know you can buy them really cheap or whatever, can’t just people say ”thank you” and just appreciate what OTHER people do for your entertaining? :/

          I really, REALLY, don’t understand why everyone is expecting for, aroknow, MGS V or Watch Dogs to be in the next month for PS+ at this point (yes, being sarcastic. HA. HA. Amirite? Amirite? highfive*). C’mon guys and gals! Restore a bit of humanity in my long comment haha, jk 😛 But seriously, in my most humble opinion, getting two free games a month, maybe even 4 or 6 IF someone owns a PS3 and/or a Vita, is a great investment.

        • hojam maximus

          people seem to forget that some of the biggest projects come form small dev teams… naughty dog come out with crash bandicoot and it was only created by 2 people. now naughty dog is one of the best devs out!… hell heaps of games start small and end huge! warframe for example, not many people know but that game is almost 2 years old already and people are only hearing about it now! … people shouldnt misjudge indies because they arent AAA!

        • CreepingDeath 187

          Everyone first realize with ps3 like 15% of owners have plus, so giving a game for free isn’t an issue because most people won’t get it free. But on ps4 everyone has to have it to play online so everyone gets it. Sony doesn’t lose that much money giving it away to all console owners. It sucks but this is how Sony will be from here on out. Giving away trash we wouldn’t buy if it was a dime! I don’t forsee any A titles ever just indie games.. or like with up coming drive club, give you a demo size part of game free but pay to unlock remainder. It is bull Sony got greedy making all get plus and original plus members like us will suffer!

        • Dragoon893

          indie games are trash, shitbrick.

        • atomicjuicer

          Alright Chewie, if I’ve learned anything from Star Wars it’s “let the wookie win” so I’ll stop complaining!

          Peace y’all

        • Blattiecakes85

          Dude get a PS3 and you get AAA titles and then stop bitching…go figure that the PS4 which has been out less than a year and only has a few AAA titles isnt giving them to us all for free!!!!

        • atomicjuicer

          Last gen AAA

          Anyway, I’ve turned off my ps plus auto renewal. It ends in November so the ball is in Sonys court to win me back now after a disappointing few months

        • Dragoon893

          aint a ripoff, lol. 10-15 bucks a piece, you pay 50 a year. 4 indie games gets your money worth.

  • Brownc6830

    These games that are free have been arcade crap lately. it sucks. Change it.

    • Dragoon893

      you suck, change yourself.

  • RobbyF

    No decent exclusives, poor free games and a bunch of worthless indies. Time to fly…trading in this farce of a system for an xbox one. Driveclub is a joke…only 50 cars..only 30 fps..no real tracks no car tinkering/upgrades. Forza here i come. Better games out now (titanfall forza dead rising ryse killer instinct) and forza horizon sunset overdrive project spark and halo at 1080p 60fps coming september/october…..i am done waiting for greatness…cause it aint coming.

    • TonyG

      No offense but you sound like a major fanboy if you think Titanfall, Ryse, dead rising, and Killer Instinct are great titles.

      Truth is neither console has great games right now, but that is always how it is during the first year of a new console release. What did you expect? Sounds to me like you had too high of expectations and would have been let down no matter what console you purchased.

      By the way I can guarantee Sony will have more superior IPS compared to Microsoft just like the last 2 generations.

      • RobbieF

        Been playing them all and they are all very good…considerably more fun with more replay than knack killzone and infamous. And i disagree on the coming exclusives with xbox ones looking considerably better as well. To each their own i guess.

      You never owned a PS4. Your lies keep waffling between owning a PS4 and having sold it already.

      Driveclub got great impressions at E3 2014, it’s like a next-gen PGR with connected social features and club competition. Most E3 2014 impressions state it plays well and looks great. It will review well and sell decently. It’s the best looking console racing game. Driveclub’s weather effects look amazing running on PS4’s more powerful console hardware.

      This game is channeling Project Gotham Racing, one of Xbox’s most beloved arcade racers. Those games didn’t have any customization beyond paint jobs and you know what? They were still amazing. It’s an arcade racer, different from sim racers, it doesn’t necessarily need fine tuning customizations. Not inherently better or worse.

      Closed and open world racers are different experiences, not inherently better or worse than one another.

      Weather is confirmed free in a patch soon after launch. It was demoed in-game to journalists at E3 2014, it’s basically finished.

      Both Driveclub and Forza are good games, it’s only fanboys trying to spread lies, FUD and ignorance to fuel their hatred of a piece of plastic.

      PS4 has many great AAA games that gamers love. That’s why it’s 8.5+ million in sales and growing. Sony’s large number of well funded 1st parties will ensure PS4 has a ton of great AAA exclusives, as many or more than PS3.

      1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

      For some reason PS4 keeps selling like hotcakes despite attempts to downplay its library. All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, it’s only fanboys trying to trash one or the other and pretend it has “no gaems lolol”.

      Some of the AAA PS3 2013 exclusives: Beyond Two Souls, The Last of Us, Puppeteer, God of War: Ascension
      Gran Turismo 6, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (not 1st party), Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Expect a similar level of long term PS4 support with tons of 1st party games.

      PS4/Sony exclusives Jun-Dec: The Last of Us Remastered, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Infamous: First Light, Samurai Warriors 4, Natural Doctrine, Guilty Gear Xrd, Singstar, Resogun DLC, and lots of indies.

      PS4 has 36+ AAA games from July to December 2014, or 6 per month. Most of those are multiplatform but there’s no shortage of AAA games for PS4 owners.

      PS4/Sony exclusives 2015 (announced): Bloodborne, The Order, Ratchet & Clank Remastered, Uncharted 4, Let It Die, Deep Down, and lots of indies.

      PS4 AAA games from July-Dec 2014: The Last of Us Remastered, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Infamous: First Light, Samurai Warriors 4, Guilty Gear Xrd Sign, Singstar, Sniper Elite III, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, Madden NFL 15, Metro: Redux, Destiny, NHL 15, FIFA 15, Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Grand Theft Auto V, NBA 2K15, NBA Live 15, Battlefield: Hardline, Evolve, Just Dance 2015, The Evil Within, Assassin’s Creed Unity, WWE 2K15, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Crew, Far Cry 4, Lords of the Fallen, Shadow Warrior, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, The Legend of Korra, Project Cars, etc. Plus a truckload of indies.

      Well reviewed PS4 games not on XB1: Final Fantasy XIV, Resogun, Transistor, MLB 14, Injustice, Trine 2: Complete Story, TowerFall Ascension, Infamous 2nd Son, Don’t Starve, flower, War Thunder, DC Universe Online, Dead Nation, KZ Shadowfall, Dynasty Warriors 8, MotoGP 14, Yakuza Isshin and other Japanese games, etc.

      PS4 has the superior visuals on all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs, and unannounced 1st party games. 3rd party AAA games will be increasingly multiplatform on both consoles.

      PS4 is selling on lower price, the best visuals on console multiplats, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, and PS+ value.

      Don’t worry PS4 will keep selling like hotcakes based on multiplats alone and bundles with Destiny and Watch Dogs. The PS4 version of Watch Dogs outsold the Xbox One version by about 2:1.

        Noone has made a next gen game yet either they are all across platforms, and if it is ps4 Xbox1 only it is trash.. see wolfenstein

          Anyone with technical knowledge knew PS4’s game graphics performance would be better for the entire generation as soon as the specs were official. That was well over a year ago. Apparently it’s taking some people a LONG time to come to terms with reality.

          It’s going to be a very long gen of delusion, denial, and spinning for you.

        • CreepingDeath 187

          I haven’t doubted the ps4 performance just don’t know how long we will have to wait to see it. I left 360 for ps3 when ps3 launched and that was a far better experience, ps4 will be too but when? Greatness awaits? When dammit? This too soon for next gen as noone has been ready!

    • CreepingDeath 187

      I agree . I am very tempted to trade my ps4 in for an Xbox one. Sony has disappointed most of us! And before someone says I don’t have a ps4 and am a Xbox fan boy, look up my name, CreepingDeath 187… 3456 for trophies with 21 platinum. Get on my level!

    “Will Knack finally be chosen by popular demand? ”
    I think Knack is the number one possibility as the first AAA game we will see on PS+. Knack was granted launch day bundles in all major territories, so they were guaranteed sales no matter if you wanted the game or not. That’s a pretty big bonus to the developers of Knack, guaranteed sales. I believe it will be the first AAA game given through PS+ because of this. As far as what games we have gotten free on PS+ and do I enjoy them? Absolutely. We have definitely gotten more than the price of PS+ year subscription over the last 9 months on just the PS4 alone. I have a Vita as well, soo I enjoyed the free games on it as well. Anyone who actually complains is just beyond me. Grow up. You are getting free games. Most of them have been given ON LAUNCH day. Talk about entitlement…

      Disagree bud…it has sucked. Done waiting.

      • TC Harris

        Dear god, this this Robby guy a river bed to pour his tears into. Get that fanboy stuff out of here. I love my Playstation 4 and look forward to my Xbox One purchase. the Xbox One doesn’t give you nearly the same value as I currently have now with my PS4, and it too is lacking in the games department. I cannot wait for Quantum Break, and the additional exclusives Xbox has to offer, as much as I cannot wait to see the exclusives to drop on PS4. Why be a fanboy? Simply enjoy the games. I thought thats what being a gamer was all about!

        • RobbyF

          Not a fanboy..just pissed at ps4. Been playing titanfall forza dead rising ryse and killer instinct at a neighbors so i disagree that they lack games also. And considering what they have coming…its time to make the change. But i hear you on fanboy nonsense….it has gotten irritating. You lucky to have both.

        • Josh101

          I have played and beaten every game that you just name-dropped and the ONLY one that gave me the enjoyment I was looking for was Killer Instinct and that was simply for nostalgia sake. Titanfall is boring after the initial drop of Titans on the battlefield and that gimmick wears thin quickly. Ryse was simply a tech demo. Forza was a just a mediocre racing re-skin. I had just as much fun with NFS:Rivals on PS4. Dead Rising is a lame attempt at a zombie game that has never appealed to me. There’s no true horror in that game. It’s the Saint’s Row of Zombie games. Which is all my subjective opinion. But since you name-dropped nothing but exclusives, there are a TON more exclusives on PS4 that will crap all over XboxOne. You need only to look at the previous two generations to see what company pumps out quality 1st party AAA games. Hint: It’s the company that doesn’t money-hat all of their exclusives. Which if you look at it, ALMOST ALL Microsofts exclusives are paid for. At least Sony and Nintendo have first party studios to make their games. They don’t have to bribe developers to be exclusive.

        • ps4+xbox1

          i have both, both are pretty disappointing as far as titles go, dead rising and infamous second son are the only two we’re enjoying so far. have ryse,ghosts, forza, j.d.2k13 or 14(dont remember), infamous:ss, and dead rising. they’re both my wifes consoles. got the xbox one first because she wanted dead rising and the media benefits seemed good. apparently our directv box doesnt work with it so that selling point was pretty useless but overall its okay.
          bought the ps4 solely for infamous:ss for her but same thing, overall the titles are lackluster even if they are more polished and go up to 1080p. we’ve only had ps+ for 3 months, as far as her ps4 goes, it seems pretty crappy although our 2yr old enjoys strider. we’ve enjoyed the free ps3 games quite a bit though, esp. the racoon game and the mickey mouse:coi, and thomas was alone

          id be happier with some static themes for her ps4 and ported ps1-2-3 games since the ps4 library is pretty nonexistant just like the xboxone atm.

          we also both have ps3’s but it doesnt let her use ps+ on hers?(i think she used my account on her ps4 but not her original ps3) is there a way around this?
