PS Plus September 2014 update needs this PS4 game

By Daniel Chubb - Aug 19, 2014

We are heading towards the PlayStation Plus September 2014 update for PS4, PS Vita, and of course PS3 as well. This has led to social chatter about what games should release in the next update, or even those that need to appear with discounts to subscribers and there’s one game we would love to see for free.

Velocity 2X has a release date set for September 2nd on PS4 and PlayStation Vita. This is a game a few people are crying out for to be included in the PS Plus September 2014 update, especially considering its launch timing as well.


The shoot ’em-up adventure and sci-fi platformer might raise the debate again about indie games appearing as PS Plus free games, although in September this would be a PS4 game some of you might want to purchase. With this in-mind, it could also work out as a great free game thanks to your PS Plus subscription on PS Vita and PS4.

While nothing has been confirmed about Velocity 2X being free on PS Plus in September, we’d love to know if any of our readers would welcome it? Or if this isn’t to be the case, should we at least see a discount for PS Plus subscribers?

This is what some fans have already said, “Velocity 2X is coming the first week of September, I hope this is one of the ps plus games”. Another added, “I loved Velocity Ultra and Velocity 2X is a must for me. Thanks to it releasing on Sept 2nd, is it going to be free for PS Plus? That would be amazing if it happened”.

Take a look at the Velocity 2X gameplay below and let us know your thoughts, also what would be your ideal free PS Plus games list for September 2014? If you don’t want to see any more indie games, then what titles should be up next in your opinion? Again, leave your comments below.

    would be nice to se a decent game on ps4 this month; this will be my last psplus month if it’s so uneusefull…i’ll spend 50$ for a game no more for plus
    please boycott plus if the give us so bad games!!!!

      What are you expecting for PS4 games, they won’t give you full retail new games…

  • cactneir

    I believe sony needs to pull a console bundle for ps plus on ps4 only. You pay $50 for 1 console but what about families and spouse’s? We know last gen multiplayer was online multiplayer only which is better than playing with ppl at home but then you’re forced into 2 accoint budgets insteaf of 1 and 2bd comsole can’t go online bc its not covered. So let’s make a ps4 multipack deals??

    So out of the gate future labs should cut major potential income? Right…

  • billy

    Ya im tired of the Indies for my “next generation Graphics” Ps4, I bought a HD TV and Ps4 and Neither are being used nearly at all to their potential.. actually my Ps3 is still my main play system while the ps4 is collecting dust… sweeeet sony

    • courte

      I quite like it. The system is under a year old. Those hd games are trickling in but they’re coming. They take a lot of time money and manpower to make, and going free on plus asap hurts potential income, which they need to cover the cost of development. So enjoy a game for its great gameplay instead of just its graphics. Play a single player experience instead of ranked shootbrofest. Not slurring, but at least plus has standards for their ‘free’ titles. Never below 85 on metacritic

        “at least plus has standards for their ‘free’ titles. Never below 85 on metacritic”

        That’s not true, but I agree with your general point. I’ve loved the games on Plus over the past couple of years, including the PS4 games. I’d rather have good indies than the mediocre AAA games like Knack and Thief that everyone is clamoring for.

        • k.b.a.

          Check them.

        • Chip1010

          Uh, OK. Only one of the six September games is 85 or higher on Metacritic. Same with August. Same with most months. Sony indeed has high standards for the IGC, but it would be logistically impossible to only give out 85s and above.

      You’re an idiot, who buys a console in its first year and expects a huge library of AAA titles? Do you know what games the PS3 had this far into its lifecycle?

      Resistance: Fall of Man
      Ridge Racer 7

      The PS4 already has:
      Killzone Shadow Fall
      Infamous Second Son
      The Last of Us Remastered
      Infamous First Light (as of tomorrow)

      In just 6 months from now we’ll also see:
      LittleBigPlanet 3
      The Order 1886
      Ratchet & Clank
      Deep Down

      With these games on the horizon:
      Uncharted 4
      Until Dawn
      Tearaway Unfolded

      And even when you’re not looking at the big budget Titles, you have some pretty impressive Indie games like:
      Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture
      Shadow of The Beast
      No Man’s Sky

      And at TGS (next week) Sony are announcing two new games that they wanted to announce at Gamescom.

      And this is just the Exclusives I’m talking about. You can also play 90% of PS3 titles that have been released since the launch of the PS4 on PS4 and in better quality. (CoD Ghosts, BF4, AC4 Watch Dogs and you even have GTA V coming)

  • John

    I hate indie games, how about a real game like thief?

  • Ben

    Counter Spy and The Last Tinker: City of Colors on PS4 please for free in Sept.

    • Chip1010

      They’ve been out for one freaking day. There is zero chance that either of those games arrives on PS Plus this year. My goodness.

    • Dan Davidson

      CounterSpy.. Yes please!!! I’ve been so tempted to buy that but I don’t know what to expect from it.

  • MICK

    Two free games on PS4 please, I’d love Velocity 2X as I want to purchase it anyway and also a good FPS would be nice.
