        I think you got it all wrong. Sony is doing well that's why they can afford to do this for their supporters. If they were "dying" and suffering, how do you think they can give out these titles for free and front the bill??? Use your head man...

          It beats MS's $5 price tag. This is what I get for not waiting.

          (No regrets, though.)

      I can't help but wonder what deal Sony throws to the publishers. They must waive manufacturing costs or licensing or something.

        December 26, 2013 11:35 AM

        a lot of the people who get these games for free never would have bought them (or had already bought them), I could see how a fraction of a dollar from the subdivided subscription fee paid by each of these people in aggregate could largely equal or perhaps even exceed the losses from forgone sales to those who would have purchased but for the 'free' psplus license

        Most of the people who wanted to play these games bought them at release. I got B:I the day it came out, for example.

          True, but if you just got into gaming now, you could buy a PS3 with PS+ and just coast on the free games for a long time. I keep telling myself I should do that, but I can't get past the desire to have things as soon as they release.

            I think you're under the impression that free games stay free. Each game only stays free for a limited time; after 30-60 days, it carries a price tag again.

              December 26, 2013 9:20 PM

              It's still worthwhile, two quality games per month is probably plenty for most people.

              December 27, 2013 6:51 PM

              its still free for me since i am staying with PS+ and it will always be free. It stays in your download history and you can re-download it anytime you want. Even if you end the subscription and choose to renew it at a later time.

              get the fact straight.

              December 30, 2013 12:57 PM

              No, games will stay free as long as you D/L them when they are released. I still have access to games from 2+ years ago through PSN

        The general consensus is that after the free period is up there are a lot more people who are interested in the game, and it actually boosts sales enough to make up for the difference.

        Sony is just smart enough to know how to market this and make these games sell good enough to make publishers happy with the deal.

          Or the opportunity to sell the DLC!

          And if a game is more popular it will be more prominently featured in the interface of their store. Many of these games they put out for free are new enough to be great deals while old enough that they are no longer on the front page so to speak.

      I'm a PC gamer and a Steam addict, but I also have Sony products and the PSN is absolutely great. You can score a year of PSN for $30 in some places, but it goes for $50. If you own Sony you should definitely grab PSN.

      Awesome was just about to click buy on steam for dmc as I read this. Yay PS+ saving me 12$ I'll also take don't starve and a new worms game. Already own bioshock and brothers though. I'm so glad I have PS+!

        It's worth grabbing DmC on PC if you're anything more than just casually interested in the game. It runs at 30 fps on consoles, which makes it feel far less fluid than its predecessors thanks to the less distinct attack animations (making it harder to judge when to make the next input to continue a combo) and added input latency. On PC, it's extremely well optimized and will run at over 60 fps on even middling hardware.

      Dang I just bumped the ps3 to the small TV to make room for the ps4. Guess she gets a reprieve for a few months

      It's amazing I'm enjoying the PS3 this much for it being so late in this console generation. I've had mine for about a year now and I use it more and more, it seems. PS Plus certainly helps.

      Does anybody know the exact day these hit?

      Another exciting thing was that I was checking the Sony store the other day and noticed that one of the games (I forget now.. maybe Lego Avengers or something) was up for a Flash Sale of 30% off or something along those lines. That's kind of exciting that they might actually be learning from Steam and doing sales on downloadable titles! I hope they do more of that stuff!

      Damn EU PS+ doesn't have Bioshock (nor Brothers)... Only DmC.

      Hoping it comes out in the follow month or two.
