Will PS Plus February 2015 update continue AAA games?

By Alan Ng - Jan 18, 2015

It has been a great two months for PS Plus subscribers. With the attacks on the PSN aside, PS4 owners have had two ‘AAA’ games to play with Injustice and Infamous. The obvious question now, is will Sony continue the trend with their PS Plus February 2015 update games list on PS4 and PS3?

Hopefully the answer to this is yes, although something tells us that it may be too generous of Sony to keep offering AAA games every single month.

A more logical approach from a business point of view would be to offer AAA games during the so-called big months for Sony, those being June, September and November as an example.

We would love it if we were wrong, but we have a feeling that we’ll get two indie games for February. With this in mind, what are you personally hoping to see?


In terms of new releases, there are some notable games coming out next month. They include Evolve, a shooter and Dead or Alive 5 Last Round – a beat-em-up.

The biggest release of the month for PS4 owners will be The Order 1886. Obviously this won’t be included on PS Plus, but we would love it if Dead or Alive 5 makes the lineup.

We’ve seen some early predictions which include games such as Transistor and Worms Battleground, both of which would be excellent picks in our opinion.

We would still like to see Knack at some point though, while Putty Squad is a game which could be added this year as well – a game which originally came out on the SNES during the 90’s.

It’s worth pointing out that Resident Evil Revelations 2 is due out on PS4 as well in February in Episode form. Since it’s a Capcom game though, it’s highly unlikely to be selected for PS Plus for free.

We could be days away from Sony’s PS Plus February 2015 lineup trailer, so let us know what you hope to see. Realistically, do you think that Sony will continue with the AAA trend after doing so for two months, or will they go back to offering ‘smaller titles’?

Let us know your predictions below!

    If it’s going to be an indie game hopefully it’s Rogue Legacy and/or Transistor bc I’ve wanting to play both. If it’s a AAA game..I wouldn’t mind TLOU Remastered even tho I’ve already beat it 2 times but I’ve been wanting to replay it and I never got to try the multiplayer.

  • DL

    Dead or Alive 5 is not a “beat ’em up” lol

    • Rumpelstiltskin

      DoA is a “Bounce ’em up and down”.

  • Psytrix

    With over 18 million consoles sold and most of those people subscribers, they can afford to give us some decent content. Indies won’t cut it anymore, something they have been made more then aware of through public feedback in their online forums and social media.

    I don’t think either injustice or the dlc add on for infamous can be called AAA. The former was a port of a last gen title with barely improved visuals and the latter was additional content for a AAA release.

    • NgTurbo

      What would you call IDARB then on XB1?? (Feb’s Games with Gold title) just curious!

      • Stephen Crow

        The first game with an # in its title? Think that’s for xb1 owners to comment and I’ll keep getting ps plus as my son enjoys the vita content and really there’s a lack of good ps4 games to spend my money on so I can understand the difficulty of offering full price games.

  • truth

    I would like need for speed rivals and killzone ad free for plus games.

  • dapaintrain

    Logically the next AAA game on ps4 Will be killzone shadowfall as it was part of Japan’s ps plus in December so makes sense it would hit other regions to

    • bearKing

      i hope not, just rented it and it was god awful

      • Screaming4Vengeance

        yeah any indie would be better than Shadowfail, seriously one of the worst AAA i’ve played ever…

  • brianc6234

    They can keep offering big games on the PS3 since there’s so many out that haven’t been on PS Plus. It’s harder to do that on the PS4 right now.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Beyond Two Souls needs to be one of these games. Hm… What else?

      • dapaintrain

        I’m sure they are working to bring it to ps4 and it’s a game you only really play once or twice i can’t see it being part of plus on ps3

        • ObsessedGeorge

          How does replayability affect if a game comes to Plus or not. All those indie games that are played once why where they included in PS Plus?
