Only top games for the PlayStation Plus subscribers are being made available for the month of October. Sony unveiled the free playable games for subscribers, and includes none other than the full version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, along with the Amnesia Collection, which features Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
The games were posted up recently on a new entry on the PlayStation Blog, where two free PS3 and two free PS Vita games were also unveiled, which you can check out below:
- Monster Jam Battlegrounds, PS3
- Hustle Kings, PS3
- Hue, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Sky Force Anniversary, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4 & PS3)
It’s rather obvious why Sony decided to give PS Plus subscribers good games for once in October: Super Mario Odyssey.
All year long analysts have been pegging Nintendo to take the market by storm in October with Super Mario Odyssey and a healthy supply of Switch stock (assuming Nintendo can deliver on both).
Sony’s answer has been to respond in kind by actually giving their paying subscribers something worth paying for after months of mistreatment. It’s like Merkel finally closing the borders for a month and giving families towels to clean up after the ravaging at the hands of those who don’t wish to naturalize and acculturate into Western society.
The other PS3 titles aren’t bad either, with Monster Jam Battlegrounds being one of those guilty pleasure arcade games you play over the weekend while a bowl of nachos drenched in spicy cheese with a diet Coca Cola sitting on the end table help to round out the snack-and-play Saturday.
Of course, the Vita games are pretty weak but then again the Vita is weaksauce anyway, so it’s not like anyone went in expecting quality, right? You would be about as silly to expect quality Vita outings at this point in the same way they would tune into the Daily Show expecting to laugh.
You can look for the PS Plus games to go live starting this October. If you’re currently subscribed you can begin taking advantage of the offers soon as they’re made available.
