PlayStation Gamers Are Sad And Angry About March’s Free PS Plus Games
(Last Updated On: March 2, 2017)

March, 2017 is not the month that PlayStation Plus delivers greatness. That’s according to the comments and feedback Sony seems to be receiving from the PlayStation community over this month’s free PS Plus games for the PS Vita, PS4 and PS3.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, James Hallahan promptly and curtly posted up the games that would be free for the month, and then jetted out of the blog space faster than you can say “Botox!” when you see Nicole Kidman’s face.

The free games for the month of March includes the following titles:

  • Disc Jam, PS4
  • Tearaway Unfolded, PS4
  • Under Night: In-Birth, PS3
  • Earth Defense Force 2025, PS3
  • Lumo, PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4)
  • Severed, PS Vita

On the upside, at least Tearaway Unfolded isn’t indie trash… right? Right?!

Some gamers were happy about Earth Defense Force 2025, even though it’s for the practically dead and buried PS3. The same applied to the anime-style 2D fighting game, Under Night: In-Birth, another niche title for the Otaku demographic.

The very first comment in the thread links to the following video.

The line-up was so sad that apparently Sony didn’t feel the need to even pump out a promo video for this month’s PlayStation Plus line-up.

A few of the comments worth highlighting includes Luc1ferous, who wrote…

“Severed is great, been considering getting it and boom! But my God, the rest of March’s selection is garbage, at this point Xbox are far outstripping PS4 on this style of service… Do better… I think my year sub is coming up so i may cancel auto renew until I see some serious improvements.”

Rudetoy wrote…

“Been looking each month for a reason to renew the membership I opted out of 2 years ago.

Still waiting….”

And then there was CeSc085, who kept it short and simple, writing…

“Nice garbage! As always !”

Now don’t get it twisted. Not everyone is sad and disappointed with the PS Plus offerings for March.

There are plenty of people in the comment section defending Sony, praising the game line-up and expressing excitement over the free games for the month.

Microsoft has been peppering in AAA titles with indies to even it out, giving gamers something exciting and worthwhile to look forward to. They also offer some great Xbox 360 classics, too. Sony is definitely going to have to step it up if they don’t want Microsoft to surpass them.

    Something to consider when comparing plus with microsoft’s free games is that plus has been giving games for many years before microsoft. For example Borderlands 2 was given on plus at least 3 or 4 years ago.

    Plus started sucking hard after the PS4 release, I don’t pay for it since I don’t care about online

      4 years ago… really going back along way to find a good game

    Ahh it good that the SDF is still alive and kicking, don’t you just love fanboys.

  • Smug

    PS+ offer is more appealing from a japanese perspective

    • AR7777

      Hey Smug I heard you got banned from Nichegamer? What happened?

      • Smug

        MJ simply didnt like me, and Brandon covered his ass because of their “friendship”. Though Brandon also virtue-signaled my warning (from a FFXV article) back then on Twitter, and lied to random folks (people with barely any connection to the NG community) about me using the word “nigger” a lot. Take account MJ tried to shadow-ban me (he banned me originally on both the forums and NG disqus with no warning and reason), and would have gotten away with it if nobody noticed. MJ lied and acted like a twat to everyone on the forums hence the whole drama that happened.

        I also got every single disqus post I made in the last 2-3 months (before my ban) on Nichegamer deleted by the guy too. No matter what the content in my post was.

        So yeah, MJ decided it’s cool to act like a hotpocket mod, and since Brandon cant say anything bad to him (in order to preserve their “friendship”), so I said “screw it”. Being banned despite not breaking any rules (the speech rules only appeared days AFTER my ban) is a big red flag to me.

        You think telling newcomers to just use the “block feature” from Disqus on me would have been perfectly enough, but nah

          I remember I saw something about the twitter part and Brandon, if I remember correctly, “apologized” for the way it was handled so it seems MJ put him in a position where he had to choose between you and him.
          Thing is I’m afraid Brandon has been for a while trying to go mainstream and gain acceptance from the usual game media (how come no gamergate news in a looong time?) and your ban was a good case to parade. “Look we don’t accept certain things anymore, take us seriously”
          What a coincidence that he decided to change the slur rules.
          At the moment I thought it was just a word “nigger” thing but it’s pretty evident that there’s a plan to change the site to a more “acceptable” medium that gains prestige and revenue even if they have to throw the old users under the bus.
          Techraptor then gematsu and then nichegamer all have sold out, I didn’t want to believe it but after hearing your side staying in there is pointless

  • Gozu Tennoh

    Yeah, its been crap for a while now.

  • Phasmatis75

    I’ve been wanting to play teraway so I’m pretty happy with this.

  • RichardGristle

    UNIEL is based but damn that’s a rough lineup overall.

  • Mr Snow

    Pfft, I cancelled ps+ 3 years ago, the summer after the PS4 launched, because the games they were offering were garbage. I never really played online (aside from BF4 at launch), so the only incentive for me were the free games.

    And after the PS4 launched, they became worse and worse every month.

  • Disqusted

    Offering free stuff I don’t really care about doesn’t make up for having to spend money on what I would consider to be a basic feature, ie. online multiplayer.

    • Om nerabdator

      you have to play for online multiplayer!?….hmmm…

      *goes back to PC*

    Wew Sony.

    • Fear Me I Am Free

      Sony had been making a lot of terrible decisions lately while Xbox has been making alot of good ones. I like my PS4, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Xbox One took over soon if both companies continue to do what they are doing.

      • Agreed.

        I just think they really need some good first-party titles. That’s the biggest issue plaguing the Xbox One at the moment.

        • Fear Me I Am Free

          I think one of the smartest moves Xbox has made is Backwards Compatibility.
