Recognition (& a proportion of the voting temperature is due) to * HotFinder316 * for creating a "Deals" thread as a "heads-up" on 24 June 2014. This thread was moved to the "Misc" Forum (to be consistent with other threads of this nature), but unfortunately no credit was provided from the site staff when this subsequently created thread was merged with the original (a day later).

So much whining in these PS Plus threads, every time one gets posted.

PS Plus costs £40, normal price, what do you expect for that? A £40 game for PS4 every month? Most PS4 games cost a tenner north of that. Six months into the consoles lifecycle, there isn't enough games to support that, hence we get indies.

Also, the moaning about graphics, you know it's how it plays that really matters right? They look retro for a reason... I'm fortunate to own all 3 systems, so the service offers amazing value, sure not all games are that good or what I want to play, but I will at least try them. PS Plus, to anyone who is remotely reasonable, offers fantastic value, 70+ games a year, access to them, not owning in fairness.

PS Plus is so bad that Xbox felt the need to lift & shift it to Games with Gold, I wonder why...

Stop complaining and start playing.

I can't wait for the complaining to start in here as well.

Bought strider already a couple of months when it was on sale. Will not be buying sub £10 games on psn anymore
Strange that Sony reduces the price of the game shortly before putting it free on psn plus
This surely isn't a good sales strategy?

I do understand people complaining, however, in the first few comments on this deal a couple of people have said they were about to buy Strider and will now wait. Sounds like people saving money to me ;)

In before 'It's not technically free'

I agree with anyone saying ps+ is brilliant vfm just annoyed they put games on sale and within months give them away for free. Thankfully didn't pay a lot for it but at least in future sony has lost a buyer on psn for the "indie" releases
Will wait till they're free ie 2-3 months later :)
Good deal though
Wouldn't have bothered me as much if I'd bought the game a year or 2 ago then went free as I would've got my monies worth out of it

I have a PS4 and this will be very welcome. But what about the PS3 ? I still play both consoles.

There'll be PS3 (and Vita) games as well, we just haven't any news of what they might be yet!

I'm personally very happy with these two games being offered - I'd been interested in then both before now but haven't been able to justify the purchase to myself!
#12
Not really free and not that good
#13
Yes they aren't free you need a subscription to get them. I think this is the best month so far though. What happened to the permanent yearly games this year?
#14
Annoyed about Strider as i bought it a month ago! But Towerfall will be a nice freebie.
#15
I thought there'd be an actual ps4 game by now :( knack maybe.

I beleive they're not doing permanent yearly games anymore. It changed in June so every month you get 2 for each console (PS4, PS3 and PSVita)
#17
Is this the EU one for sure? I heard it was the US one, and EU/US differ in terms of free games. I may be completely wrong though, either way, I'd be happy with them two, wanted Towerfall for quite a while.

EDIT: The PS Plus games for the other consoles will most likely be announced tomorrow. It's usually the last Wednesday before the month that they announce them. (sometimes Fridays)

You just have to look at the PS3's early stages of PS Plus to understand how it works really. When PS Plus came out on PS3 they were giving many cheap games, it was only after around a year that they started giving proper well known games. It's just the way it works, same with the VITA. The more games a console has, the better the line up of PS Plus becomes. Wait, and you will be rewarded! :D

The PS3/Vita games have differed, but to date the PS4 games have been the same in EU/US/Asia.

These are the PS plus games for Asia.
#25
Maybe they do it to gauge what should go on or not go on psn+.
#26
PS+ is rubbish if u only have Vita... I have been waiting months for a reason to redeem my 90day card but everything they have thrown up sucks!

Not the first time this has happened and I suspect Fez will be the next title on sale and then on ps+

Why bother posting this yet. Its not officially announced and is the ASIAN region game list not EU. Although granted the PS4 games are usually the same, its not certain.

Can post anything now. Old lady down the road is getting rid of a cat? Post it ;)

I always assumed these sat in Misc till confirmed?

You know, like the Currys Steam thread.
#36
Surely without any proof, even if it is a 'dead cert', the deal should only be allowed when there is... ya know. Considering the usual tesco's 'SHOW ME THE RECEIPT' :-P Aren't these usually moved into 'misc' before being proven?

Personally never fast enough to post one of the super super hot PSN deals so it doesn't bother me if this stands :-P

It has been categorically stated on the EU PSN site that the the PS3 and Vita games for July will not be these.
