PlayStation Plus July Games Beats Xbox With Some Quality Titles
Until Dawn
(Last Updated On: June 28, 2017)

Microsoft may have slagged off for the month of July when it came to the Games With Gold program, but Sony picked up their slack and finally brought the fight back to Microsoft, offering gamers a nice selection of worthwhile titles.

Over on the PlayStation Blog it was announced that the multi-choice horror game Until Dawn was going to lead the charge for PS4 gamers, and it would be followed by Game of Thrones: A Telltale Series.

PS4 owners also gain access to That’s You from July 4th onward.

If both those games aren’t to your liking, you’re also bound to be impressed with the PS3 offerings because the crazy and eccentric survival game Tokyo Jungle will be available throughout July, along with Darkstalkers Resurrection. Can’t argue with those can you?

A lot of gamers have been asking about a new Darkstalkers game. So while Capcom obviously isn’t going to oblige on that front, offering PS3 gamers a free opportunity to add the classic PS3 title to their library is probably going to be the closest fans get to a new game.

Additionally, PlayStation Vita owners will have Don’t Die Mr Robot made available throughout July, along with Element4l. Don’t Die Mr. Robot has cross-buy enabled, so even if you’re not too keen on getting the game for the PS Vita, you can still take a romp through the title on your PS4.

All of the software will be available free for PlayStation Plus users throughout July starting July 4th. A nice little way to enjoy Independence Day if you’re in the good ‘ole U.S., of A.

This slate of offerings definitely trumps what Microsoft doled out for Xbox One and Xbox 360 users for the month of July. But then again, Sony getting the one-up on Microsoft for one month out of the past two or so years is not an endearing accomplishment. Hopefully they can keep this up throughout the holiday season where it will really count.

  • A comparison article that doesn’t actually compare (You didnt actually mention the Xbox games being offered). I hope everyone doesn’t adopt these new standards, lol. But I agree, PS4 PS+ games beat XB1’s GWG games badly… but the 360 freebies beat out the PS3 ones, imo.

    • I guess I should have listed them in a rundown, you’re right.

    Not terrible this month. I’ve wanted to try Until Dawn. I’ve played Tokyo Jungle which is a blast. And can’t go wrong with Darkstalkers.

    • SAVEIT! Save Until Dawn for Halloween or for some sort of spooky playlist for October, if you do that. Its a great game. Playing after hours by yourself or at a party with some friends is rad as hell. So fun. And can be pretty scary.


    Microsoft had an off month. They usually have those. Still. Games with Gold are usually a lot better than PS Plus. Here’s hoping next month is better.

    • I imagine they may slag a bit until the Xbox One X arrives and then those games for that month will likely feature 4K updates. I mean, if I were Microsoft that’s what I would do to help bolster the appeal of the new console.

      • MONAD

        I believe it might also have something to do with Games Pass going live in the last month.

        • Oh right, I forgot about that.

          • MONAD

            Yeah. With a lot of the decent games going into the Games Pass, I’m fully expecting Games for Gold to suck for a while until it all evens itself out.

        • Oh right, I forgot about that.
