PS Plus June update disappointment on PS4

We have been keeping you up to date on all PS Plus news regarding the next major update that is going to drop for Sony’s subscription service. PS4 gamers had been expecting a massive game to land, but we have seen information revealed early and reaction that many gamers are already unhappy over the potential PS Plus June 2014 update free game.

We told you earlier this week that Sony could be offering two PS4 games for free with the June update after it was officially revealed that RESOGUN would be leaving the PS4 Instant Game Collection along with Stick it to the Man.

This led us to believe that we would be having two free games instead of one for June, but some recent information has suggested that this isn’t the case. Some Playstation Ads have already gone live revealing that PS4 gamers will be given Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate as the main game for June.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is the next game in the ongoing PixelJunk series and the twin-stick shooter is combination of the previous Shooter 1 and Shooter 2 games. It does feature cross-play with PS Vita as a highlight, but some of you may be wondering if this is all Sony will have to offer their fans during the month of E3 2014.


A lot of you had been expecting games such as Knack and Need for Speed to be offered instead, so we have a feeling some of you may be a little disappointed if Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate really is the only free game.

What we would say is that this hasn’t been officially confirmed by Sony yet. The company could decide to spring a surprise during their E3 2014 press conference and announce the other game that will be offered for the year – which seems likely at this point.

Let us know your thoughts on this leaked PS Plus June 2014 ad. Would you be happy playing PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate as the free game, or would you consider it to be disppointing?

Also of note, y’know, is the fact that PSN EU gets different stuff than in North America.

Plus honestly, if you’re that disappointed in free games, perhaps you should turn to Microsoft. They charge more for their premium service and only dish out games from 3-4 years ago.


In fairness those saying that this is disappointing are probably expecting a little too much. Also those saying that there are no games are also being a bit unfair. I got my PS4 a couple weeks after it came out, signing up to PS plus right away. So far for my money: Resogun’s – fantastic, Contrast – OK (although I haven’t had time to get far), Don’t starve -brilliant indie game I’d not have played otherwise Outlast – A substantial and well received horror Dead nation – sadly had a break in net connetion, so didnt play Mercenary kings –… Read more »

…. DISAPPOINTED!!! Seriously! It’s going on 8 months since the PS4’s release in November last year. We’ve had great games release within the first 2-3 months that are perfectly viable options. Need for Speed: Rivals would be great, Knack isn’t one of the best-selling PS4 games, Killzone: Shadow Fall is no longer the biggest-selling game on PS4 (COD: Ghosts is now). Other viable options are:
– Daylight
– Strider
– The Amazing Spider-Man 2
– Tomb Raider: Definite Edition

nope, looks awful. Cheap games. hopefully next year both systems get better games. (Although fall looks promising)


Starting to get very unhappy with sony…1886 delayed and now this. Xbox one has better games out now…and what looks to be a better lineup coming. Plus they have games with gold starting on june 6…which gives 2 free classics per month and the games are classics which means they are all great. Sunset overdrive coming shortly…my ps4 going on ebay…system sucks.


Would you be happy playing PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate as the free game, or would you consider it to be disppointing? ^ I’ve been wanting PJ Shooter on my PS Vita for a long while. If I get this on the PS4 and PS Vita it would be what I want anyway. Free to boot? Yes and thank you. Dragons Crown in the PS+ update as well? That is a good deal. I already have DC though, it is a very addicting game. I’ve only beat it with one of the characters, but you can choose through 5 or 6 different… Read more »
