PlayStation Plus: Free Games for June 2016
2 Author Replies

PS Plus fans, we’re pleased to share with you two excellent PS4 PS Plus games for June.

First up, to help get everyone hyped for the NBA Finals, we’ve teamed up with 2K to add NBA 2K16 to the June lineup. One of the most critically acclaimed sports titles ever, NBA 2K16 has tons of great gameplay for everyone. With robust offline modes like MyCareer and MyGM, and deep online modes including MyTeam and MyLeague, there is an incredible amount of content to offer all types of gamers. So be the baller you always wanted to be and guide your team to the NBA Championship.

Next up is Gone Home: Console Edition. Gone Home is one of the most talked about titles from the last few years for good reason. While it’s an interesting exploration/adventure game, it’s the narrative of Gone Home that’s so remarkable. The game has a strong development team, including Steve Gaynor, who worked on a few titles in the BioShock series. The Fulbright Company (now just Fullbright) created an intimate and unique story that is well worth your time.

Full lineup:

  • NBA 2K16, PS4
  • Gone Home: Console Edition, PS4
  • Echochrome, PS3
  • Siren: Blood Curse (Episodes 1-12), PS3
  • God of War: Chains of Olympus, PS Vita
  • Little Deviants, PS Vita

I’ll see you in the comments section. Enjoy.

    even though I probably will play any of the game in the lineup, I have to give prop to SONY for righting the ship, at least a bit.

  • not my cup of tea but nice to see a big game for the PS4… hope next time it’s something I like

  • Might try the basketball RENTAL

    • *rolls eyes* might actually want to have an active suscription on plus before whining about the games you receive to play freely during the duration of said suscription

  • Macgyver306

    Again i thank Greg Lewickyj and ps and all gamers how love playstation, this great month and the 2 before it want to say nba 2k 16 is aaa game and gone home is new i am happy to see sport game for free and game i like (yes the new 17 is coming but this good you can play with it until you get the new for discount or gift )so please do not be angry this time ,thanks to ps they hearing us and our opinions thanks for caring thanks so much for all and gamers wish you all best and happiness

  • Not a fan of sports games nor basketball (never played a Basketball video game in my life and that includes on NES back in the day), but I’ll give it a shot. Gone Home looks like a little bit of fun as well. Decent selection this month!

  • Not a fan of sport games, but really good to see improvement!! Keep it up!

  • Why couldn’t they add 2K16 on PS3 as well? *sad face*

    • because then other people would be complaining about repeating a game on two consoles

  • KingRat2314

    Pretty crummy lineup. I never complain about ps plus games, but the June lineup is objectively bad for ps4. I mean a sports game and a walking sim with an agenda? I’m surprised that people in the comment were so positive about this when they do nothing but complain during the months that are actually good.

    • “I never complain about ps plus games”

      Well that’s not true, now is it?

      “but the June lineup is objectively bad for ps4”

      Also not true. I’m not sure you understand what the word “objectively” means, especially when you’re in a thread full of people who are happy to get one or both of these games.

      “and a walking sim with an agenda?”

      Oh, you’re one of those. Okay.

  • Behold, the first time everyone skips downloading any PS4 PS+ titles.

    • TrueAssassin86x

      Im downloading all 6 games so not “everyone” is not downloading them. Guess ur just a xbox troll

  • The_4th_Hokage_X

    I don’t really like sports games, I’ll occasionally play a round of fifa with my brother but even I have to admit, this is what it’s always suppose to be like. I recognize 2k16 as a huge game that’s relevant, ps3.. eh.. and the going home.. eh… but I wish they would always give us games that are on part with 2k16..

  • Gone home and Siren in ps3 are making me really happy!

  • Now this is more like it. While I’m not big on NBA I think it will be great playing this over the weekend with my friends over for beers, and I can seat the misses in the Chair of Gaming for Gone Home.

    Really appreciate the effort, keep up the good work.

  • LeandroDiFini

    This is a great line-up! I’ve been looking to try Gone Home, NBA 2K16 is a new AAA title and God of War for Vita is a really good follow-up to the previous month.
    Whoever complains about this is impossible to be pleased. Good job, Sony!

  • Ebrahim_hsh

    perfect lineup , i still can’t believe nba 2k16 is in the list , wow thank you so much PS .

    by the way , i’m an indie game developer and my “Hello World!” game released 1 month ago , i’ll be glad if give it a try and write a review and give it how many stars you think it deserve (make it 5 :D) and leave us a comment .

  • MrDSmoke_420

    Good to see there isn’t as many cry babys as there usually is. Lol. Good line up! Stoked to try out gone home!

  • Chains of Olympus is the PSP version, right? There’s no Vita version of it? Man, when I bought my first PSP, I was only planning on getting it because I had heard the Sega Genesis emulator for it was good. And it was, but I also got CoO on UMD with it. That really opened up my mind to, y’know, playing PSP games on my PSP. Too bad I can’t play my PSP games on my Vita (and *everything* I bought for my PSP was from PSN, except for Exit).

    Anyway, the store’s already been updated, just like it is every Tuesday by noon Eastern time. Why don’t you guys update the blog to show that?

  • When this games are going to be available? Today or next Tuesday?
    PS : Awesome line up for PS4 :D

  • legendary_mantis

    Outside of Siren The Blood Curse, bit of a disappointing line up. But what are ya gunna do, eh?

  • I think it’s a solid lineup, although is not my cup of tea most of them are great games, but there is something i have to get out of my chest:

    Little Deviants?!?!?! Seriously? It is one of the worst games on the vita!! why is it on this list? come on! You can do a lot better than that!!!!!!!

  • DragonessHera

    Easily the worst PS+ month ever. Well, probably equal to the one with the PES Soccer game in it.

    • TrueAssassin86x

      So what will be the best plus month ever for you. Two crappy first person shooters, skate2, and another crappy first person shooter on Ps3

  • Gone Home is SJW trash and NBA is a boring sports game. Little Deviants is boring, too. The rest are okay.

    Bad month overall. What else can we expect, though.

    • Using SJW is shorthand for “I’m proud to be an idiot”.

      The problem is you guys come up with excellent putdowns but you don’t know how to actually funnel your temper tantrums into something constructive. Why not go register to vote or something? Or will that take time away from telling the internet how the lamestream media is helping rapist Mexicans steal yer jerbs?

    • @febwtf No, he’s right. It is SJW trash. I guess it’s way easier to call someone an idiot than an actual refutation though. Don’t you have a violent “protest” to go to? Gotta feel the bern amiright comrade?!?

      See? I can be a jack@$$ and make baseless, generalizing, stereotypical slurs too. The problem is, it makes you look stupid and childish.

    • BroScienceGymRat

      @Kymii90

      nope

      not even close

      but thanks for plaing

  • Finally, a decent month! Thanks! And with these God of war freebies, I’m sensing a new God of war to be announced at e3 this year!

    • AmazedBunion

      Every God of War is dirty cheap, including the last 2 they’ve given out.

  • AmazedBunion

    2k was obligated to give them another title so they give out a title that had already blew through all expectations of sales. Thanks for giving out a free game that the people that would be interested already have. Basketball is a lame & boring sport. Gone Home will be fun, as well as God of War. God of War is always great, even though I already own all of them in their original releases.

  • PS4 and PS3 get the star treatment, but vita kinda got meh.. that’s ok. I appreciate all the hard work that Sony does. And no matter what the haves, sometime will complaint. So rather than being that someone, I’m just going to be grateful. Thanks and keep up the hardwork.

  • I remember a couple years ago when 2K14 was being offered. I wasn’t very excited about it but after playing it I couldn’t have been anymore wrong. It was a lot of fun once I knew what the heck I was doing. So excited to get to play 2K16 now. Thank you. I’m not sure about the others as I haven’t really heard much about those from what I can remember. But I am very excited to finally see a game offered I can really be excited for.

  • Thank You Sony! Best Month Eveeeer!

  • I could care less about sports games but 2k16 is a big recent triple a title, kudos sony, keep them coming

  • As a Brazilian I’m not a big fan of Basketball. What a bummer!

  • Nothing interesting this month, again :(

  • Wow. Thank you! Thank you! Why are you thanking them like that? Listen to yourselves. Do you worship Colgate too, because they have also blessed you wth the privilege of paying them for toothpaste. They have to do this. It’s a business contract. You act like it’s a favor. Oh yeah, you paid for the “free” games too.

    • First hi,listen friend i am not worship them i happy because at last ps care about us gamers for once and our opinions, last month i suggested that they put a sport game and make again 3 free games one cross by like before and also put one free ps2 game this month they do put sport game yes the new is coming but now they hear us this is why i am happy that our opinions and views are being taking care ,my friend we criticise them alot but last 3 months were good enough ,at last wish you happiness and healthy

    • By the way i buy alot of games not free and by the i had bought tropico 5 before it was free last month also i had pre ordered saints row and found big problem in re-elcted it freez my ps4 and stop playing it until this year ,for fun too i use crest and sginal 2 for my tooth hahaha ,thanks again wish you understand why i thamk them wish you fun and joy friend

  • Sweet

  • Nothing for me. I might try Gone Home, but thats it. I have zero cares for sports, and have EA Access on XBO anyway for that sportsing need.

    At least Vita is getting *good* PSP games instead of crap Vita games, but I still want to see a much better selection there!

  • DuoMaxwell007

    NBA 2K16, PS4
    yay a crappy sports game (but at least its a retail game for once)

    Gone Home: Console Edition, PS4
    A game Im sure that everyone who actually wanted, already bought.

    Echochrome, PS3
    seriously?

    Siren: Blood Curse (Episodes 1-12), PS3
    now THAT Ill take.

    God of War: Chains of Olympus, PS Vita
    Everyone who wanted that bought in on the GoW Origins Collecion

    Little Deviants, PS Vita
    Who doesnt have this? Oh wait I know pl who didnt want it in which case they wouldnt care if it was free or not.

    Another subpar but at least better, month

  • Hmmm, i’m not into sports games, at all, so ill pass on 2K16. Ill take the rest though.

  • Thanks PS Plus! Another GOW Vita! I can smell GOW PS4 announcment! Woot woot!

    Does Siren have trophy support??

  • irregularcog

    Soon to be out of date sports games is a little weak. Siren blood cry is nice though.

  • When I first read the rumours, I thought there was no way those games would be in june’s line-up. Now that I see them there, I’m so happy of being a ps plus member.

  • Eh, not really happy with this month. I think giving us a sports game that is in their playoffs is a lame move. I really don’t want to see a sports game back in the IGC again actually. Generally anyone who’s a fan of the games, has already owned them at some point during the season, and if they did want them again, it’s gonna be a month before the season ends. I think those who are “impressed” by this offering are just happy they aren’t getting an indie game.. which would have been better for the majority.

    I’m happy with Gone Home though. :)

  • RiVeR_RaT-79-

    Ugh, I’d probably be pretty damn happy if I weren’t one of the millions of NBA 2K fans who buy that game when it comes out, so basically it’s a good freebie for those who don’t care enough to buy it yearly or probably watch too much NBA either. Would have been great months ago though, now, just means I can trade my game in for next to nothing value wise. At least Gone Home sounds like an interesting first-person walkabout, really wish Echochrome was a cross-platform PS4 title though.

  • Gone Home and Siren, I’m curious about.

    Echochrome? seriously? That is total crap, how is that even a game? Literally might be the dumbest looking game I’ve seen…no scratch that…it is the dumbest game I’ve ever seen. That game should have been a free to play at best when it came out. Did someone spend money on that? Why? Ugh…some people just hate their money and themselves.

    NBA 2k16, seriously? A basketball game. Here’s a news flash PS Plus employees. Nobody wants NBA anything or any other sports games. The people who wanted that game, have bought it. Nobody is sitting around waiting to see if it shows up on Plus. Literally the lamest ps plus game ever put on the list. There are bad games and then there are pointless games you put up to fill a slot, knowing that nobody needs it or wants it. I hate you.

  • Can’t complain much, AAA game second month in a row, kudos to you guys for that (finally).

    But…hockey! Hockey! HOCKEY!!! Throw some NHL our way, this is the second time you’ve given us an NBA game between PS3 and 4. Hockey Hockey Hockey!!!

  • Credit where credit is due. Very good month. Great job.

  • RegretOfEliCLee

    No one can say this was a weak month or we didn’t get some AMAZING titles! I’ve been wanting to buy Gone Home and NBA 2K16 for awhile now but never had the time or money. So glad it’s free! I spent 1.5 weeks just playing Tropico all day. Now I’m looking forward to playing some hoops in Classic mode! 96 Bulls y’all!

  • Lizard_dude_101

    I not a big fan of sport games but I can’t deny its a great line up just hope next month will have something more interesting for me but again its a great line up

  • Very nice lineup :)

  • CottonMouth420x

    I knew I should have waited and held off on buying 2k16… Now I just feel dumb.

    • don’t bro, you had no way of knowing… you wanted a game and went out and supported the developers. unlucky yes but not dumb at all

  • moparhippy420

    Is it just me, or am i the only one who noticed that nba 2k16 was JUST on sale last week. I bet the 20 people who are actually interested in that game who didnt buy it new, but on that sale that just happened, isnt happy seeing a week later its the free game for this month.

    • that’s business, put it on sale to attact those who are sorta interested but weren’t enough to purchase it full price, then give it away for free a few months before the new iteration to garner new customers for the upcoming release. 100% business. it’s not nice whenever you purchase anything at full price only for it to go on sale or promotion shortly after, but it happens a lot.

      in my case I’ve always been curious so I bought 2k13 on vita that went on sale two weeks ago, now I’m super hyped for trying out 2k16.

  • Good month for PS4. Thanks!

  • Good Sony… Very good very good! Keep in this way.

  • Le sigh. Gone Home is one of the worst games I know of…
