PS Plus Vs Games with Gold update for October

As we revealed just hours ago, the PS Plus October 2014 games list is finally live. We now know that games such as Dust: An Elysian Tail, Spelunky and Batman Arkham Asylum will be offered, compared to the Xbox Games with Gold October games that Microsoft already revealed earlier in the week.

Which platform can boast having the best games on offer though for the two respective subscription services? Many PS4 gamers were again hoping to see a big name title on offer, but as we predicted Sony are still not willing to do this.

The biggest winners in our opinion could actually be PS3 and Xbox 360 users. PS3 will be getting Batman Arkham Asylum to play which is a fantastic game from Rocksteady, while we all remember the fun that can be had with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 from DICE which is coming to Xbox 360 in October.

As expected, there’s indie games on offer for both platforms, with Spelunky coming to PS4 and Chariot on the way for Xbox One. Dust: An Elysian is also on PS4, which is interesting since Microsoft has already made it available on Games with Gold in a previous month.

One big talking point has also been the fact that Microsoft are continuing to offer Crimson Dragon on Xbox One for a third straight month running – is this sign that Microsoft are also not willing to give away any ‘bigger’ games for free just yet?

The fact that Driveclub PS Plus Edition will be available on October may suggest that Sony are the victors here. Offering Crimson Dragon yet again hasn’t gone down well with Xbox One owners, so hopefully November will be a better month.

What are your impressions so far on the games that Sony and Microsoft have offered on PS Plus and Games with Gold for October. Do you agree that Sony has the better choices or not? Is it unacceptable for Microsoft to offer the same game for three months in a row – almost somewhat ‘cheating’?
