August 2014: PS Plus indie game debate for PS4

The very idea of more indie games being included in the PlayStation Plus August 2014 free title lineup on PS4 isn’t going down well, or at the very least has created quite the debate among fans. While you won’t need to look far for fans of indie titles, you’ll also meet a lot of ill feeling with some gamers wanting “a ps4 game moving in 3D”.

We’ve already seen a number of leaks discredited, and won’t likely see the PS Plus August 2014 free games announced early by PlayStation Asia. You can look forward to the details later this week on the official UK/US blogs.

Indie game debate – the feeling towards indie titles on PS4 follow two main opinions. There’s those that are happy with “more indie titles for PS4 thanks to it being too early for free AAA games”, and then those feeling “indie games are getting tiresome”.

You can see how strong some feelings are by the tweets below, which clearly reveal some gamers aren’t happy with just anything free for PS Plus in August. I guess too much of one thing isn’t a good idea and you can see some really unhappy people right now.

Are you getting tired of Indie games on PS4 and expect much more for your free PS Plus title lineup, especially now that we’re in August 2014? Also we’d love to hear why you think there’s a lot of people hating indie games? Let’s hope this next update performs a U-turn for the fans.

What is this whole debate about anyway? Why aren’t people having such a word about Microsoft? Microsoft HAS the money to offer AAA games on their service, but no one gives two shits about that. Sony on the other hand is working on Project Morpheus, PS Now, 4K t.v.’s and offering PS+ across PS3/PS4 AND PS Vita all while supporting those 3 consoles. Don’t Microsoft supporters tout that Sony is going bankrupt? If this is true, they are busting their asses for the consumer before doing so. Entitlement. Since Sony can’t say it, I’d like to say this on their… Read more »

Another month, another indie. *sad face*

Yes there free but they promised AAA games I’d be happy with one AAA game and an indie that would be perfect

I really like the indie games, don’t get me wrong. I just wish I had a game to show off the power of my ps4. Instead I’m stuck with a plethora of games that my ps3 could run.

This is why we can’t have nice things. Complaining about a handful of great games each month for less than the cost of a happy meal. Unbelievable how stupid people are. They’d rather one crap “AAA” game like Knack or something than a couple of great indie games. I HOPE they stay with the indies for a few years. When the PS4 is in the situation of the PS3 where there’s tons of great older AAA games to draw from that are actually good, sure bring them back. But at the moment I’m loving my ever growing collection of GOOD… Read more »

I am liking the Indie games. Normally when there is a AAA title I want I will have saved up money to buy it when it comes out. But there is a lot of indie games I would not have play unless they were free from PS+. I am enjoying those games a lot and getting surprised that I like some of them. Because if I saw them in the PS store I would have not given them a second look. Now I would like some AAA for PS+ on PS4 but right now I do not think the library… Read more »

What people don’t seem to realise is that game developers have to offer their games to be put on PlayStation Plus. As most developers are trying to make money because of the new generation of consoles, Sony are left dead in the water with nothing more than indies to offer. Personally, I’m enjoying the Plus line-up and not complaining seeing as the subscription allows me to play online. The free games are purely a bonus!

they missed a trick wen they gave nba2k14 on ps3 should of made it cross buy just something that actually shows off the ps4 talents because indie games maybe good for an hour or so but they do not show wat the ps4 is capable of

I don’t mind indie titles so much but the issue is that it’s been non-stop since release. How about 1 AAA title and 1 indie every month? Or alternate? 2 AAA this month, 2 indies next? I don’t really care. Something different than what’s been happening so far.

Speaking on undelivered promises… How about DRIVECLUB!!!!

2014 has been a total waste of time for next gen. Only things that are interesting this year is a reboot (TLOU) and a cross platform game (Destiny)..

Not single hardcore next gen system seller in almost a year, nothing but let downs. The worst “1st year from launch” I have ever seen, hands down.
