The PlayStation Plus November, 2018 games line-up isn’t all that bad. At least Sony seems to be taking into consideration that a large majority of their users are straight males who like action games. The offerings mostly seem to orient themselves around the kind of games that gamers actually enjoy.
I’m actually a little shocked that Sony is even allowing Yakuza Kiwami as part of the PS Plus line-up given that it’s a very masculine game and it features the whole hostess mini-games and AV idols, which goes against Sony’s new anti-fan service policy.
PS3 and PS Vita gamers weren’t so lucky, though.
Sony’s ambivalence toward PS3 owners has really become obvious in recent times, and the PlayStation Plus offerings are quite indicative of that.
For the month of November PS3 owners will receive the Jackbox Party Pack 2, which is a party game for casual gamers, and the Arkedo Series, which is another puzzle game bundle pack. So yeah, PS3 gamers are screwed.
PS Vita gamers have also been given the shaft, with Burly Men At Sea and Roundabout rounding out the PS Plus offerings.
But this is to be expected since Sony will be culling the other systems from the PS Plus line-up anyway, with the company focusing mostly on the PlayStation 4 instead.
When PlayStation Plus first started it actually offered gamers something of value for their money, giving them incentive to pay the monthly fee for the additional content, but now it just seems like a standard payment process for wanting to play online.
Anyway, PS Plus still isn’t worth the monthly fee, but if you have already been paying for it then you can at least look forward to playing Yakuza Kiwami and Bulletstorm on the PS4. However, a better alternative would be waiting for Yakuza Kiwami to release on Steam, and getting Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition for PC.
