PlayStation Plus February free games includes Transistor, Thief, and Rogue Legacy

Sony has quite the lineup for its free games for PlayStation Plus members next month that includes some great games.


Sony has announced what games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be receiving free of charge starting on February 3 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita owners.

PlayStation 4 owners will be receiving Transistor and Apotheon, while PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download Yakuza 4 and Thief. As for Vita owners, they’ll be able to get Rogue Legacy and Kick & Fennick.

As is the case each month, you’ll need to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber in order to receive any of the titles Sony makes available for free. You’ll also need to continue being a PS+ subscriber in order to continue to access these games in the future.

February’s lineup is a pretty nice one as I can easily recommend the majority of these games to play. I absolutely loved Transistor and considered it one of my favorites of last year, I’ve spent countless hours with Rogue Legacy, and I’ve always enjoyed the Yakuza series. I personally wasn’t a fan of Thief, and I haven’t heard of Apotheon nor Kick & Fennick, so good luck with those games.

      How are the PS+ games SO MUCH BETTER than the typically shitty or mega old Games With Gold?

      Kinda a shame I bought Transistor on PC, but those guys deserve my money, even if I'm enjoying it less than Bastion.

        PS+ games you keep only while you continue to have PS+. For the 360 games you get to keep them if your Live expires. For the One, I believe those work the same as PS+

          I'm not sure that entirely explains it, good Sir.

            The owners of each game's IP have to be convinced to offer their game up for this. That is why you never ever see a brand new game, released anywhere recently, available for these services. Add in the "lifetime of the account," versus "lifetime of the subscription," and it is an even harder sell when the owner ponders if they might get a sale when a lapsed subscriber decides they'd prefer to have their game over another subscription.

              I get that too, it still doesn't explain why the free games are consistently worse from Microsoft though. :)

                Sure it does. The publisher of the five year old game figures, hey, it's five years old, nobody is going to go and buy it even if we sequelise or remake it within the next year or three, might as well give it away for what they are offering to us.

                  How does that explain how Sony tends to offer better games? Are you suggesting they're just offering less to license them than Sony is? I'm still lost here.

                    The games with gold haven't been as awful as you are portraying them. They have more and better titles on the 360 because they have a larger library. Sony has been chasing down Indies for the PS4 so they are able to offer more of those up. No one knows what contract agreements get signed for these deals besides the parties involved. Microsoft could be paying more for the 360 titles since they are forever tied to the account so that shifts how much they are spending.

                    Sony also had to approach PS+ way different then Microsoft. PS+ when it first launched was very laughable it took until way after the data breach for them to start offering really good games with the program. Xbox Gold had the reverse and had very high attach rate and only had to change after they started slipping. They both have two entirely different ways they got to these offerings and it still shows somewhat.

          Great month. I've waited for Transistor and Rogue Legacy is perfect fit for Vita. PS Plus delivers.

        That's probably how they figure out what to give away. See how much people own them already

        Thief was........ not a great Thief game. So you aren't missing much.

        I enjoyed it, but compared to the original Thief games it falls very VERY low on the scale of greatness.
