Helldivers is a great game that went way under the radar. Hopefully this will allow more to experience the unforgiving battle. :p

    Ugh, nothing for me again, I got the ultimate helldivers edition used for cheap. Like G-Force said though, its a VERY fun game that doesn’t get enough recognition. I’ll be on this weekend with my son doing co-op online.

    How about some good games? How about the Uncharted Collection for PS4? After all, most of us have already purchased that on PS3, and it would be nice to not have to buy it again on PS4.

    How about the GTA PS2 remastered trilogy on PS4? Same reason as above.

    How about Hotline Miami 2?

    That would be kinda unfair to just give away the Uncharted Collection. I mean really? 3 games, all remastered, all redone by Bluepoint games.

    Plus that’s not fair to people buying a PS4 and getting a PS Plus subscription that the game included with their game is being given away for free.

    Why does your $4 dollars a month ($50 a year) give you the feeling that you deserve $100 worth of games every month?

    Hotline Miami 2 was only $7.50 8/2015. Can’t always sit around awaiting handouts.

    As for Uncharted. As others have said, can’t really expect that to drop for several reasons. It was just released for one. Though you have a point. I own all three and I’m a bit of sick of having to repurchase games but the fact of the matter gamers, including myself do. That being said you can find it for about $30 from time to time anyway so if you can’t pay $30 for 3 great games remastered. Only problem with that seems to be, at least in my experience, 3x, 3 sellers, you get a not for resale copy which pisses me off at least. Perhaps someday Sony will be extremely generous in offering the Uncharted Collection but not anytime soon.

    I love PS+ and all too often months like this where nothing interests me happens. But we can’t sit around waiting for handouts either. You want a game buy it, grab on a flash sale, rent it if need be but don’t complain. This is something complimentary Sony does and is in no way obligated to do.

    This ia actually a really good line up. I’ve always wanted to play a persona game so this will be my first. My little bro loves racing games so we’ll love grid. I’ve always wanted helldivers so also +1 for me. And nova 111 looks decent so I’ll try it out. My only complaints are nom nom galaxy and lemmings touch but i haven’t played nom nom yet so I’ll give it a try. Also to everyone saying they want AAA titles for ps plus on ps4, remember ps3 didn’t start out with any good ps plus titles either and now look at these awsome games we’re getting for ps3 just give it time and soon we’ll get month after month of awsome games. Also sony doesnt have to give away these ps plus games they could just charge you $50 for online like what xbox did for their first xbox and first few months of xbox360.

    I hope Arrowhead Games & Playstation will also make The Terrain Specialist Pack DLC a FREE Playstation Plus item to make not make such a sting for those of us who already have Helldivers.

    That or have it on a sale or Flash Sale in February.

    I agree with t3dvolthafaj..

    Most of us already bought games for ps3 that we can’t use any longer. Those games should be free as we have purchased ps4 and no longer can use those games. Some true blockbuster games would be great Noe and then as free gifts to your members of the plus variett

    @RoII_chan — Am I complaining by offering suggestions? Fact of the matter is, the quality of IGC games has dropped dramatically now that PS+ is mandatory for PS4 online play. I’m offering suggestions to make the game lineup better. Since they discontinued the feedback poll, this is the only way I can do that.

    @MakaiOokami — The uncharted collection is sold as one game, so it would only count as one game. Or maybe some time in the future they will split them up into individual downloads like they did with the god of war collections on ps3. In response to your other questions, there are other PS4 bundles to buy. Also, is it any more fair to offer games people won’t play at all? At least uncharted has wide appeal and would make many people happy.

    @Sarges24 — I suggested HM2 because the first one was offered for free at one point, so they might be inclined to do the same with the second. I haven’t gotten around to buying it yet (too focused on MGS) so grabbing it for free would be great. I’m not going to buy a game I don’t have time for, even on sale. Might as well wait until I’m ready, or until it’s free, whichever comes first.

    + T3DV0L70L1N4

    I get it, you’re having a laugh, aren’t you? Asking for the Uncharted Collection for PS4 is like asking them to put Until Dawn or Dragon Quest Heroes on Playstation Plus. It’s far too recent, they’re still selling it at high prices (Gamestop still sells it at $59 new and $49 used), and really it’s just never going to happen. They’d be more likely to put Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition up there, and that in itself isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

    If anything, they’d be more likely to put either Uncharted 1 or 2 on there, since only 3 has been on the IC list for PS+. But they’d be idiots to put the PS4 collection up there considering it’s still a big money maker for them.


     

    + AlmightyMatthias on January 29th, 2016 at 2:56 pm said:

    + goldenghost2468 Arena is WAY different from a “Persona game” in that they are RPG’s and Arena is a fighting game. It’s also the continuation of Persona 4 Arena so you may want to play that one before Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. I would recommend playing Persona 4 first as that is the main game. It’s on the PS3’s PSN for $9.99. It’s an AMAZING game. Arena wasn’t all that great and I admit I haven’t played Ultimax yet. I’m just saying that if you wanted to play a Persona game, you should play an actual Persona game and Persona 4 is my personal favorite.

    @ T3DV0L70L1N4 Instead of *****ing about not getting AAA titles, why don’t you actually try downloading the FREE GAMES they’re giving you and try experiencing something new? Are they all winners? Of course not. But you know… I’m having a TON of fun with Super Meat Boy and a couple other games that were given away for absolutely nothing. If you don’t like the game, delete it. Did it cost you anything? No. Also… you realize the sales they have on some of the AAA titles are great deals right? Hell over Black Friday I got Witcher 3, GTA5, and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate ($180 value) for less than $80. That’s a good deal.

    You see… here’s how BUSINESSES work. You make a good product, people buy it, they make money, they go on to make other good games. I know this may seem kinda out there for you, but if the guys at Naughty Dog were to spend a TON of resources updating Uncharted for PS4 and then gave it away for free…. they wouldn’t make any money. They don’t make money, they don’t make any more games. They don’t make any more games, I don’t get The Last of Us 2. I don’t get TLOU2, I cry. Don’t make me cry. Just shut up and buy Uncharted Collection if you want it that bad.

Also how about instead of bashing each other for making suggestions about what should be free (because we all know we’ve had months with crappy games) you add the person your arguing with to your friends list, pick up ur favorite pvp game and destroy them to truly get your point around.

    Well first of all we used to get 3 games a month. You figured if the number would drop the quality would increase, nope. No AAA games, only year old indie games that everyone already owns or didn’t want in the first place. You’re losing me playstation.


     

    + truemask on February 10th, 2016 at 2:48 am said:

    Yeah you guys say uncharted shouldn’t be given because its to new, or because its remastered, but really. Uncharted is a pretty bland series the only one somewhat worth playing is uncharted 3 and even that game is not very good and not really worth anyone’s time (definitly not money) so why not give it away. The games are old and a large amount of gamers have played uncharted anyway. Uncharted 4 should be good none the less. But some food for thought. Anyway I’m hoping ps4 gets a AAA title next month hasn’t been one yet and ps4 has tons of old titles with little sell ability (killzone shadow fall, assassins creed 4, need for speed rivals , watch dogs, battlefield 4, knack, thief )

    If you are getting them for free, maybe try them out before people crap on them. This is a good lineup.

    If someone can enjoy 12 games from plus in the year, or take advantage of Plus only discounts, then hasn’t the subscription been worth it?

    If you bought day one edition your version came with zero dlc. Just new maps. Everytimre they add dlc the full purchase gets it for free while day 1 purchases have to buy the extra guns, characters, and perk packs. So, since we bought generic helldivers on day one or whenever we can not buy(even for free) the democracy strikes back edition that includes all of the dlc that we would normally get if we bought the game last month or got for free this month.

    The PlayStation people go out of their way to make sure PS+ gets quality games, not costly ones. Also Helldivers isn’t a cheap game. It launched for $20 and then sold for $40 at retail including all its DLC as a value-edition.

    It got nominations and awards from multiple outlets in multiple categories. Rocket League was another highly rated new game last year on PSN for $20. That also got the PS+ offering. That also had ton of post-release DLC support.

    persona is fine, i was complaining more about the ps4 lineup, which month in month out is terrible. the best of ps4’s igc in the last year has been comparable to the x1’s mediocre “in between” months. (they have been alternating between good lineups and average lineups every month)

    there are a ton of games sony could put on that aren’t cod/battlefield/ac/infamous.

    * wolfenstein
    * sword art online
    * akiba’s trip
    * guilty gear xrd (already given to ps+ members in japan)
    * dead or alive 5:lr
    * resident evil
    * dragon age inquisition
    * dragon ball xenoverse
    * mk x
    * toukiden

    all of those are old enough to be reasonable ps+ offerings. instead we get a lineup that’s literally less interesting than if sony had just given us a dlc for a game we may or may not own.

    Sony doesn’t just decide which games are free… unless it’s a Sony owned property, of course. Of the games you listed, not one is a Sony owned property. Which means that in order for them to make ANY of those games free, the publisher has to be willing.

    So complain to the publishers for being unwilling. I’m sure Sony would LOVE to make one of the worst two games of last year (Dragon Age: Inquisition) free… sadly I doubt the publisher is as willing.

    @Seluhir

    funny how ms has no trouble getting 3rd parties such as s-e and ubisoft to put their games on xbox live.

    sony needs to step up their game, because ps+ isn’t a good value at this point. it’s pretty ironic, because “not being a good value” was the excuse sony gave for not having ea access on ps4. ea access offers a much better value than ps+ does.


     

    + Seluhir on January 27th, 2016 at 12:30 pm said:

    PS+ and XBGold offer similar services, but PS+ also offers special discounts.

    Now if you ignore ALL of the discounts(which is kind of silly to do given the number of them, but for now, we’ll ignore them)… the relative value of the two services is still approximately equal with MS typically offering fewer games but generally higher priced ones while Sony offers more games but usually ones with a slightly lower pricetag.

    What it all comes down to is whether you LIKE the games, and that’s a matter of personal opinion. The games Sony is offering are perfectly good games… they’re just not catered to your tastes. So provide that feedback… but be respectful about it.

    As to your comment about the games MS gets… Sony gets some of them too. But the games you’re asking for aren’t Square or Ubisoft. They’re either niche Japanese producers(which I agree – I’d love to see too, but they generally don’t have faith in Western markets), Capcom (who rarely gives freebies in general) or Bioware (who also don’t often give things away free).

    That being said, on the Bioware subject… both Inquisition and Mass Effect Trilogy were on REALLY solid sales this past month, both of which were made even better by PS+.

    On average, I get around 200-300 dollars a year out of PS+ for a small investment of 50 dollars, give or take. To me, that’s more than worth it, even on the mediocre months.

    If it’s not worth it for you, don’t pay for it, and offer your feedback in a respectful fashion.

    Comments like the initial comment I replied to here are not respectful. They’re entitled and childish. And they don’t help.

I know we’re never gonna get Witcher 2 for PS3 or PS4(thanks Sony) and we’re not gonna have backwards compatibility either(thanks again) but couldn’t we get something on the same level?

    “PS+ and XBGold offer similar services, but PS+ also offers special discounts.”

    what’s your point? xbl offers weekly sales with bigger discounts for gold members just like sony does. just like sony’s sales, they’re typically terrible and if you’re luck you’ll 1 good deal a year.

    “As to your comment about the games MS gets… Sony gets some of them too.”

    no, actually they don’t. look at every ps4 igc game since launch. it has had 1 retail game, and 1 stand alone dlc. ms has had more 3rd party retail games in the last 4 months than sony has has in the last 2 years. the fact that the ps4 doesn’t get retail games while the xbox one does is what so many subscribers are upset about. instead, we’re getting demos such as when we got episode 1 of an episodic game a couple months ago.

    at the end of the day, gold is absolutely destroying ps+. (and so is ea access, which isn’t on the ps4 “because it doesn’t offer a good deal to playstation owners”. by that logic, ps+ should be discontinued)

I’m one of the biggest Playstation fans you will ever meet, most would probably refer to me as a fanboy. With that being said, PS Plus has been Supremely lacking as of late. The indie/niche downloadable games are abundant on the system but that doesn’t mean people want them every month on PS Plus. I don’t like complaining about something that is sort of free but I refuse to accept that fact that I live in a world where the competitor to Playstation is giving out better games every month. What can I do to help so so we can see some more prominent games on next months lineup? It’s hard defending the lineup anymore when all we see is the same stuff over and over again.

    @dawning I’ve seen more people unhappy with the constant stream of these type of titles then I ever saw for the slightly older AAA titles. I’m not waiting on any game. I buy the AAA titles I want and PS Plus was a fun service to catch up on titles I missed or didn’t previously give a shot to. It used to be or more varied split of titles now it’s always the same damn types of games. The occasional indie game is fun to try but some of us are bored of them.

    I’m with you. I signed up for Plus back when it was all about the IGC. They added features and required it for online play for the PS4, but I don’t use those features enough to merit the cost. I know that “ICG isn’t what PS Plus is about” now, but that was my reason for paying for the service. My subscription just expired 2 days ago and I’m not going to renew unless I can find an incredibly deal on a yearly subscription.

    If you want your feedback to be taken seriously, rephrase it.

    Saying: “More crap on PS Plus” tells Sony you’re likely a child who probably doesn’t make enough money to pay for the subscription yourself and that you’re not intelligent enough to form an educated opinion.

    I’m not trying to say that’s what you ARE, but that’s the way that phrase comes across.

    If you had rephrased it and said, for example:

    “I’m not really a big fan of multiplayer games, and I generally don’t find Japanese games all that interesting so Playstation Plus is not offering anything to my tastes like it used to. I’d really appreciate it if there were more games like , , or on the list.”

    Then you get the message across that you’re a mature individual who is interested in the service and you’re trying to get value out of it but it isn’t offering what you’re looking for… and your feedback is far more likely to be taken seriously.

    I haven’t gotten anything interesting from PS+ in a while, but I recognize that’s because of my own tastes and not because of anything they’re doing wrong.

Im not going to lie, I need online features, so I have to pay for it. What I dont understand is that, while on the PS3 era, we got really good Plus games but that was only for ppl that wanted the service. Now that its pretty much mandatory, or else you cant connect on PS4,which means a LOT more users have to pay it now, the quality of the games offered the past several months, if not a year or more (actually when they made the announcement you had to pay), are complete garbage, or indie crap.

It’s not bad to just buy your AAA games and get a bunch of free games that you wouldn’t even have blinked at. You would probably get a lot more games to play.

    @DawningWolf55 I don’t think the majority of gamers ever called indies a revolution. That was more a Sony and gaming press hype thing than anything that came from the actual gamers. That said, there have been quite a few great indies in recent years. Let’s not forget that Binding of Isaac, Rogue Legacy and Rocket League are all indies. There’s also a bunch of indies that appeal to very few people such as the point and click games and the puzzle platformers that are part of the IGC on a regular basis. At this point, the “indie” marketing label has probably done more harm than good because many gamers are looking at indie as a genre rather than a game that isn’t published by a major publisher. Nobody says they dislike AAA games because they don’t like CoD and Madden but there are probably people out there who say they don’t like all indie games because they don’t like Tower of Guns and Aaru’s Awakening (I use those as examples because those games were both on Plus last year and were generally not well received). We all see just how damaged the “indie game” brand is every month when we browse these comments.

Let’s stop training people to think that paying for something is free. Any reasoning that is saying it’s a short hand description is flat out wrong and lazy. Let me repeat, wrong and lazy. We all speak in slang and if PS+ offered anything else that is worth a subscription (it doesn’t) it might not be so annoying.

PS+ doesn’t offer anything of real value outside of the games. Multiplayer being gated behind it on PS4 hasn’t increased the quality of the online or given us extra features. Noteworthy sales feel few and far between.

Now, let us say, you are paying for both services, that would mean you are paying 30 a year for online connectivity to the PSN and $30 for the online game collection which normally ends up being well over $1000 per year in games across all platforms.

Persona for the PS3 is fantastic, but the rest sucks, as every month we get Indi games where the Xbox gets full retail free games that they can keep, not just borrow with membership. First time ever, check my account, my PSN Plus ran out in November last year and I did not renew it till I had to move a save file from PS Vita Tv to the handheld Vita. I looked up the games I missed and said to myself, ohh wow, did not miss anything, all junk as your saving the good games for that crappy PlayStation Now that I will never ever touch. When games go digital, I will stop gaming, easy as, but look at Vinyl Records making a massive come back, so can’t see that happening anytime soon. The only reason I’m still on Sony PlayStation is easy, I’m where the JRPG’s are, but if Microsoft Xbox can get some good JRPG’s like you then I will for sure be switching back. The whole fun of this system before, was I could spend all my money on Japanese games, then get the Western games for free from you on the store, but now this is gone, I ask you, what is the point for most people in staying.

another month of crap, every month i keep saying it but you guys just don’t listen. make multiplayer free or a $20 yearly sub on its own. a lot of people are not thrilled about pre paying for indie games only to not play them

I wanted to play Helldivers, Lemmings, Nom nom Galaxy and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax so this is a great month for me. Still I don’t have a PS4 or PSVita but I always buy the games on the web interface so I can get them later. And it’s nice that Helldivers is crossbuy since I can play it from my PS3 right now.

Other than Rocket League, which was offered way back in July, I haven’t bothered with any PS Plus games. It’s getting really disappointing. Now I don’t even look forward to what will be offered the next month.

I do like playing online, so I will always forkover the money for that service. However it would be cool if for example online multiplayer was available for $30 a year and then you can pay an extra $20 a year if you want the free monthly games. Or separate the two services and then people can pay for which one they want and save money if they only want one of them. I think this will lead to happier customers. —Reply if you agree.

    Except you are missing one very important fact. You are currently paying $50 for online play and $0 for the IGC. If they remove the games, you will still be paying $50.

    I think it’s a good idea if you just pay for online play only. Then everyone would stop their BS complaining when they don’t get AAA titles every month for next to nothing. Then people would complain when they seen something they liked and didn’t get it.
