  • When I try to add Just Cause 3 to my cart, it tells me I am ineligible to purchase or download it.
    Somy question is… what the hell?

    • siberianlord

      I’m getting the exact same weird behavior when trying to add JC3 to my cart. :-(
      Also, after trying a couple of times, the whole “Just Cause 3” game disappeared completely from the PS Plus web page. (????)

      I’ll have to start with Freedom cry, but honestly I expect Sony to fix this issue quickly

    • Well, it’s working now (I’m using the browser store), so I guess they fixed whatever was causing that.

    • WheresMyTowel42

      it appears the game servers are not working/down you cant play the game, i managed to download it last night 02/08

  • I from Argentina and I can’t believe that Sony makes us, latinamericans, pay the same money for the Ps Plus like the rest of America and Europe and don’t give us the same games!! exchanging Just Cause 3, a AAA game for a spaceships game that cost 18 dollars. It’s very disrespectful and discriminatory.

  • Yes I have a question, when do the PS Plus games become available for PS4?

  • Can’t download JC3. The store keeps thinking and after a long time show the message “An Error Occured”. Come on….

    • WheresMyTowel42

      same thing happened to me, you need 35gb of free space for the game, i delete off old PSN Plus games and it downloaded, although a bit pointless because the servers are not working so you cant play the game only the boom-island mini game thing, but its pointless with no other players.

  • Gustavo_station

    Disappointment. Sony discriminates against its customers in Latin America. They charge the same “ps plus” membership fee to us and to Latin America but they give to its customers is us a free game of US $ 60 and to latin america a game of $15. fraud

  • THIS LINUP IS NOT IN LATIN AMERICA BUT IT IS IN THE REST OF THE WORLD?

  • I created my account when I was living in LATAM and now that I live in USA I can’t change the country nor get JC3 F@#k U PSN

    • We don’t even have an announcement to say hey latam you are not getting JC3… Really disappointed

  • WE PAY THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY IN LATIN AMERICA, WHY NOT GIVE US THE SAME GAMES? THIS IS A SCAM

    • spadez23pr23

      TO MY EYES FROM ALOT OF PEOPLE TALKING, AND COMMENTING I SEE SONY, IN THE GAME WORLD TODAY ONLY CARES TO POCKET MONEY N NOT SATISFY CUSTOMERS. I THOUGHT THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT, HMMMM. COME ON THINK ABOUT IT. THEY HAVE TV N MOVIE CHANNELS N SELLS. NO DOWNLOADS FOR YOUR OEN BACKGROUNDS. NOT BEING ABLE RO PLAY OLDER SYSTEM GAMES BUT CAME UP WITH BOGUS PSNOW. HMMMM. ALL ABOUT POCKETING MONEY, FORGET WHAT WE WANT.

  • TwiztidJuggalo73

    Level 22 looks like fun but when I look it up in the store it says it’s $6.99. $6.99 is a long way from free.

    • spadez23pr23

      it aint free just checjed for the hell of it, so not only does sony want to rip pockets but they put up false advertisement. ARE YOU SERIOYS. WOW

  • Im in Mexico, and we get Strike Vector instead wtf Sony? Im payin PS Plus and being payin it for years now, and we cant get Just Cause 3?
    Whats wrong? You need some more money or yall just dont care, this is not ps3 wich is free, this is ps4 where we paying for games, internet, ps plus and DLC, and we cant have Just Cause 3? Yo better fix this right now

  • What is going on? The promo for the movies is not even there and now I already missed on lego batman. I want to be able to rent movies at 99 cents like you said I would be able to do! Good lineup for the games by the way.

    • spadez23pr23

      good lineup on the games???? only game i see intresting this month is call of duty infinite only one i would get n not from the psstore, n 2 games at regular price accel world vs swordart online, and final fantasy xii which yet is a remake of the ps3 one, wgich i still have that title on ps3 cd, if the story isnt changed or extra characters added or major differences then i dnt care about graphics or game play changes, its a rip off to me

    • spadez23pr23

      p.s. let me correct myself thats a ps2 game im looking at it now had to go through my games, i have a few ps2 mixxed with ps3 thats to show you how much i used the ps3 for some old games, i guess there wasnt a ps3 original for final dantasy xii. still a game you could just had let it be, and avle to play on ps4 i mean isnt ps4 an upgrade shouldnt it do what ps3 did, play older games while they look even better on the newer system, hmmm.

  • WheresMyTowel42

    too bad Just Cause 3 will not work………..

    it says the servers are own and you can only play the boom island thing………

    typical Sony why give out a working game when they can give one with no multiplayer servers for a game that will only work when logged into the game servers.

  • Nice. Not a big AC fan, but it’s been a long dry spell since a AAA game made it to the lineup. I’ll definitely give it a try. I had already decided to cancel my sub at the end of the year, but PSN, just earned another year with this release. It doesn’t take much, just throw us a top game every now and then. I don’t play online, so the free games is the only value to me. This is my first keeper since Zombi

  • Was excited since every game announced here in the US store was taken to the Mexico store. But for the first time they took out the game I really was excited about :( Just cause has always seem so great in videos and wanted to play it but we got Motherload instead :(
    well, you win most of all, you lose the one you want…

    • Also there’s strike vector EX but I had that game for like 6 months ago :/

  • spadez23pr23

    3. final fantasy 7 should be completed entirely and sold entirely may it be up to 3 cds again but that whole part 1 cd n wait for another without knowing if they are going to keep it going for ps4 or a newer system, to me this is a rip off and a way to make more money, wack. FINAL FANTASY 7 SHOULD BE DONE COMPLETELY AND SOLD WITH COMPLETE STORY FROM BEGINING TO END LIKE THE ORIGINAL, NOT PARTS BY PART.

  • spadez23pr23

    4. Finally, your psnow, REALLY, NONE OF THOSE GAMES BUT 7 OUT OF ALL I WOULD REPLAY BUT WILL NOT SIGN UP FOR IT, ITS NOT EVEN OVER 500 GAMES, JUST MAKE A UPDATE WHERE WE CAN LIKE PS3 PLAY OLDER GAMES FROM OLDER SYSTEMS, IF I KNEW PS4 WAS BUILT LIKE THIS, RESTRICTING DOWNLOADS, CAUSE I WANTED MY OWN BACKGROUND NOT WHAT YOU HAVE, AND I HAVE PS3 GAMES I WASNT PLANNING OF GETTING RID OF, GAMES YOU DNT HAVE ON YOUR CORNY PSNOW. TO ME THIS IS THE MOST HORRORFYING, DISTURBING, AND MOST AGGRAVATING BULL I EVER ENCOUNTERED BY YOU GUYS.

  • spadez23pr23

    FROM PS2 BEING ABLE TO PLAY PS1 INCREDIBLE PS3 BEING ABLE TO PLAY PS1 N 2 GAMES THAT WAS AMAZING TO NOW PS4, ALL I SEE IS SO MANY REMAKES INSTEAD OF NEW PARTS TO THOSE TITLES, INSTEAD JUST LET PS3 GAMES 2 N 1 BE ABLE TO PLAY ON 4. OTHERWISE I SEE THIS MACHINE AS WORTHLESS. N TRULLY LASTLY DNT TELL ME BUT WE PUT APPS LIKE HULU, NETFLIX, AMAZON, ETC, WE PUT TV SERVICES N ALL, NO I DNT CARE BOUT NONE OF THAT, PLAYSTATION IS MEANT TO BE A GAMING CONSOLES, WE ALREADY HAVE TVS, N DVD PLAYERS WITH THE CAPABILITY OF HAVING THOSE SAME TV SHOW N MOVIE APPS, AND WE ALSO HAVE CORNY CABLE COMPANIES WARNER, CABLEVISION, VERIZON, DIRECTV, DISH, ETC. N THEN FOR SEPARATE INDIVIDUAL CHANNELS WE HAVE AMAZON TOO, N HULU.

  • spadez23pr23

    PLAYSTATION IS A GAMING CONSOLE HAVING MUSIC ON IT SHOULD BE THE ONLY THING AVAILABLE OTHER THEN THAT SHOULD BE KEPT AS A GAMING SYSTEM ONLY. MY OPINION IF YOU LIKE. I regret getting the system, i sold the ps3 believing in your ps4, havent gotten a ps3 system again just so i can play my ps3 titles, n i shouldnt i wont, you guys should gad the ps4 able to play older games. wtf

  • spadez23pr23

    1. half your psplus game deals to me, none of those games worth getting. 2. half the games you have on regular price some can be found new and cheaper in many stores, others are found cheaper, and then games not of this year and your still selling them at regular price wtf, still cheaper at stores some even on amazon.

  • spadez23pr23

    so back to psstore. why have people sign on to psplus with the sorry games you have available. 2 games out of almost an year completed all the rest garbage after garbage, like really i feel i wasted money signing up for psplys

  • spadez23pr23

    so yeah sony give me a good answer why we cant play older games and when if we will be able to, take out that ridiculous psnow, no more then 7 games i have on cd n like but nothing more out of at least 40 titles i own n like, why your such a rip off with games found cheaper elsewhere, which if u say something smart guess what, i do buy them elsewhere, more better free games ON PSS when is that available, and lastly let us download things off the web like ps3, i want my OWN WALLPAPER, BACKGROUND, WHATEVER YOU CALL THEM. when are we able to do so.

  • Hi,
    I can’t find the 99 cents movie for this week like advertised here…
    Can someone help me?
    Thanks!

  • Keke12345348

    Just Cause 3 doesn’t appear as a ps plus game to me. It hust tells me I have to pay the usual 71 bucks to play even though I have a membership. Could this be becaue I live in Argentina?

  • katzenjammer_yaw

    Why aren’t we getting the same games in Mexico? This is the first time this has happened in the 4+ years that I’ve had PS Plus. We pay the same price, in USD, we should get the same service and products.

    Does this mean that we will be getting different games each month like EU or Asia from now on?

    Any answer will be greatly appreciated Sony…

    • wey no valemos madre para Sony, hijos de p*ta… lo bueno es que yo ya tengo mi pc gamer, jamás volveré a pagar ps plus. Deberían de hacer lo mismo todos, puto sony que se joda.

  • PUTA MIERDA!! Por qué a nosotros nos nos dan el Just Cause? qué bueno que ya tengo mi PC y no volveré a pagar por el PS Plus. Maldita sea Sony, ojalá mueras por ser tan avaro. Miserable.

  • SONY, please, give Brazilian PSN PLUS Just Cause 3 too.
    Show some respect to us!! We pay too.

  • takaithepanda

    Kindaa wish Snakeball was actually a full game and didn’t require you to buy an add on to unlock the full thing. Aside from that pretty solid month.

  • Northern---Rose-

    I just wish the PS Plus free games would be 2 games from 2 very different genres. If I don’t like 1 genre I would at least have a choice (unlike July with Until Dawn and GoT) an adventure game and an RPG or Racing, Fighting, Sim, Action, Etc, Etc.

    It would also be very nice, more to my liking and I’m sure many others as well. If they offered an old PlayStation, PlayStation 2 or PSP game for free each month as well.

  • I’m really stoked about this lineup.
    Wanted both Freedom Cry and JC3 but never really got around to actually buying either.
    Thanks Sony!

  • The lineup changed.. is there a reason?

  • I do not have just cause 3 for any of the free games, and I got ps plus just for it! Can anybody explain why? Plz

  • Well, here in Brazil eas a total mess. We don’t get just cause, and sony says nothing about it. Them, on the first day of the drop, some brazilian guys got it free on the store, because it has a bug and for couple of hours user were able to download it. I don’t get it because I was working. There’s no reason to discriminate brazilians like that. We all pay the same. Anyway, as a user, the obly thing I can do is not renew the membership and next gen change platform (as I did switching xbox 360 for ps4). Maybe I’m just one guy and don’t change sony’s numbers, but i felt discriminated. Thats what I’ll do. I’ve never argued against “bad ps plus games indies” like most people do, because I know it is for free and sony has its policies. But discrimination is not nice. Thanks sony, it was good.

  • TheTyranntKuma

    Downwell is actually pretty good. The rest you couldn’t pay me to play. I guess when you get down to it they wouldn’t give away anything good because they’d lose money. We’re just gonna have to accept that all the games that come with plus are a bad joke. In that respect this month’s joke was extra funny. Assassin’s Creed? That’s hilarious. The 2 people that like the series already have it.
