There is a promotion going on atm on PS Store where you can get one month for as little as 1€ Since I didnt have any funds in my Wallet they deducted 4€ but I'll have the rest deducted on my next purchase anyway, so it's OK.

Tales from the Borderlands, PS4
Abzu (US) / Alienation (EU), PS4
Blood Knights, PS3
Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants, PS3
Laser Disco Defenders, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
Type:Rider, PS Vita (Cross Buy on PS4)

All I can say is that Alienation is pretty cool, once you swallow the frame rate.

Alienation saved this month, very cool game.

Also this game really reminds me Destiny with a different camera perspective. Oh and better...

i haven touch my ps3 in months, and only reason I turn on my ps4 is to play nioh.

I have been collecting psn + games every month though haven seen anything great lately but still 24 free games a year for 49$ year or what it is now is worth it.

Until Dawn is a very good game. Excellent voice and animations. Plays like Heavy Rain.

Just Cause 3 is pretty awful on console due to the framerate (even the PS4 Pro's Boost mode does little to improve it). Also, since Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag isn't yet available on PSN+ (unlike on Xbox One), it seems incredibly stingy to offer only Freedom Cry and not the complete package.

The fact that you don't even own these games like on Xbox Live, only rent them for as long you pay the subscription, coupled with the news that the PSN subscription is increasing from £40 to £50 per year makes me question whether to consider paying the subscription at all. I don't play games online at all so that makes the sub even poorer value for me (perhaps I'm spoilt as a PC gamer were it is free but I question why we should even have to pay to play games online in the first place).

well concidering i havent seen ps4 servers lagg (especially when the game is new) and i havent seen any cheaters at all, makes it worth it for me.
PC is a horrible platform to play games online. If its something i can not stand it's cheaters.
I have nothing but positive experience online on the ps4. menu structure wise it is so freaking easy to join others. its just plain awesome.

On the pc im just waiting for the next problem to start.

For PSN+, while you rent them, i am able to get several hundred games for free still, i have been with them for a long time. one thing i regret though, not joining them from the start as ive missed a lot of games already lol

The sales that have been going on the last half year also pleasantly surprised me. it is something you could expect from the old steam, when games were still a bargain at a sale. not like now.

all in all, since these things have raised the bar for me, and i can only say , that pc platform falls incredibly short when it comes to positive experience.

Got an email today as well saying the price of PSN+ is going up by 25%, £39.99 to £49.99, not sure i'm going to keep my sub at that price.

Same here. I have given up online gaming for good until I got my PS4 almost 3 years ago. It has reminded me how you can actually have fun in MP without dealing with cheaters or a bunch of other issues.

Understandably I’m not a fan of the price increase and was not aware that it will affect my country until I got the email. From 50 to 60 euro a year, which makes it from 4.2 to 5 euro a month. 0.8 monthly is hardly a big deal…

I’m happy with the games for August. Mostly excited for Downwell lol. That a little gem IMO.
