This month marks the beginning of PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection for PS4. The first two free games are Resogun and Contrast. But what else is down the line? More indie games, obviously.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, an updated version of the classic roguelike dungeon crawler, will be available for free to Plus members when it launches in 2014.

In addition, Klei Entertainment's quirky survival game Don't Starve will also be available free on Plus when it launches in "early January." According to Joystiq, the PS4 version will launch with all content from the PC version, and that both versions will update in parallel after release.

Top-down multiplayer shooter Secret Ponchos will also be available for free when it launches on PS4. We spoke to Switchblade Monkeys, who noted that having a large community of members at launch is more valuable than any payout Sony offers for making the game free on Plus. The company hopes to offer more characters after launch as a way of monetizing free players.

Other Plus games confirmed for PS4 include DriveClub and Outlast.

      Is this a typo? "The PS4 version will launch with all content from the PS4 version"

      Awesome to see more games coming I have wanted to play.

      And thus my next generation console choice was solidified.

        Amen to that. I can't wait to see what they release on PS+ over the next few months. It seems as if Sony is scrambling to release games so they can have free games for the PS+ subscribers. Which is great for the subscribers! We expect free games every month. So no post launch wasteland.

          Same here. Don't Starve and BoI (and FTL) are probably my most-played games to date. Couch play really excites me.

            It helps a lot that Don't Starve's controls translate to controller really well.

              I'm glad it'll be available in January. That'll be fun.

          I'm hoping that the Vita remote play doesn't become forgotten down the road because that will be a system seller for me, especially for these indie games.

            I know that Isaac will be for Vita also, so chances are it'll be cross-play.

      If these can come to Vita, why not PS3 as well?
