It’s the first of the month and that means free game announcements! It goes without saying that Playstation Plus has the best free games of the month. Also, they let members have one free Playstation 4 game. This month it’s Outlast. I’m so jealous especially since it’s been sitting in my Steam wishlist for months now.
Actually, all of the free Playstation 3 games have been in my Steam wishlist too! Those games are Metro: Last Light, PayDay 2, and Remember Me. This is one of the best months, in my opinion, since these three games are still worth a lot of money.
Even though I don’t own a Vita right now, this month’s free games are tempting me to get one. For the Vita, you can download Street Fighter X Tekken and ModNation Racers: Road Trip.
Another great feature of Playstation Plus is you get discounted games even cheaper. Right now, there’s a Final Fantasy sale and I’ve really been eyeing Final Fantasy IX for $5.39.
If you have Xbox Live, you can take part in Games for Gold. This isn’t as generous as a deal that Playstation Plus has, but it’s better than nothing. Typically, you get two free games a month. One is available for the first two weeks and is usually a major release. The second one is released in the last two weeks of the month and is usually an Arcade game. So far, we only know the first release of February which will be Dead Island. It’s a great game and best played co-op, but unfortunately I already had it on PC.
