PS Plus August Games Kill Xbox’s Games With Gold Thanks To Just Cause 3
Just Cause 3

Sony finally unleashed some real games for the PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of August this year. The console has either been used as the Social Justice Station 4 or to peddle indie games no one rightfully cares about. For August, however, they at least decided to bring some quality games to PS Plus subscribers in the form of Just Cause 3 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry.

Obviously, Sony couldn’t resist maintaining their whole Social Justice Warrior shtick and forcibly trying to make everyone suck down the schlong of diversity, which is why they have Freedom Cry and not the main Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag made available. It makes sense as part of their continued devolution into Social Justice with the release of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in August.

Nevertheless, as detailed on the PlayStation Blog, it’s undeniable that the quality of games on the PS4 are definitely better than the Xbox One’s Games With Gold for August, which includes Slime Rancher and Trials Fusion. You can check out the full list of six games available for free for PlayStation Plus subscribers below.

  • Just Cause 3 – PS4
  • Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry – PS4
  • Super Motherload – PS3
  • Snakeball – PS3
  • Downwell – PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4)
  • Level 22 – PS Vita

In case you forgot what was available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 in August, the Games With Gold include two Xbox One titles and two Xbox 360 games, as listed below:

  • Slime Rancher (Early Access) – Xbox One
  • Trials Fusion – Xbox One
  • Bayonetta – Xbox 360
  • Red Faction Armageddon – Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 games on the Games With Gold side are obviously better than the PS3 games on the PS Plus side. However, no one cares about PS3 games these days anyway, so it’s not like those count for much.

But Just Cause 3 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry would definitely provide gamers with plenty of game time to make up for the piss-poor PS3 offerings.

On the plus side, at least both Microsoft and Sony are trying to entice gamers with something. It doesn’t make Xbox Live nor PS Plus worth the annual fee, but it’s better that the two stay competitive to give gamers a reason to look up at the offerings with interest every once in a while.
