This just popped up on my Facebook feed as an advert from the official Sony Playstation page (see screenshot), looks like they did it a little early as the official announcement's tomorrow!

Should be free to download a week today.

What bizarre logic people here have. Even if 10 million people played these games (which they don't), their would still be 15 million subscribers who've never played them.

I'll second that comment.
Pretty piss poor since you can get second son for like a tenner and a lot of offers when the pro came out were bundled with infamous

I found it to be another dull open-world collectathon. Shallow mechanics padded out with the usual tedious and repetitive side quests that are the bread and butter of open-world games. I'm not a fan of the genre but there are good examples, like Sunset Overdrive, which at least makes the traversal and combat reasonably fun, even if the quests are as repetitive as any other open-world game. I wouldn't put the Infamous games in the same category. They're dull.

Sony seriously needs to consider some kind of rebate offer to those who already own the game digitally. I always feel shortchanged whenever a month comes like this and I happen to own said games already :
Good month for me. Looked at buying both in the past and will definitely be downloading them.

​First light has been and Child of Light has been free on xbox.


Yea I meant First Light. Regarding Child of Light, I specifically meant on ps+.
So i guess suckerpunch's next game will be revealed at psx then. this leaves enough time for anyone not familar with them to play their last game.

Side Quests? Definitely - Would it be an open world RPG without them?
Shallow Mechanics? Not a chance in hell. That game is one of the most varied games that has ever lived. There are literally hundreds of different combos and ways to manipulate the battlefield. It's anything but shallow.

I respect your opinion, you're wrong, but I respect your opinion either way.
Played second son years ago and traded it in. However it's meant to look incredible on PS4 Pro so this is great news!
Now add in some decent vita games for a change please Sony. Vita needs to be shown more love.

Decent month, interested in the Vita/PS3 games but as usual will keep my expectations low
Not got either so happy days
You'd think the first month after putting the price up by 25% they would have tries harder.
They really missed the opportunity to put Knack 1 on alongside the release of 2 😄

I was going to trade borrow The Last of Us Remastered with my friend to try out InFamous Seond Son, looks like I'll be keeping The Last of Us Remastered
Nice. I missed second son first time round. Nearly bought it recently too!
Nice.
Saw this posted on Reddit earlier this afternoon
Both been on ps plus before.

Yes, shallow. The combat is as one-note as it gets.

Let's not argue over it, but the Infamous games aren't exactly widely acclaimed for their mechanics, so I don't feel like I'm being off-kilter in my criticisms.
I'm gonna say it because I don't think enough people have said it already....

First Light was free on Ps plus but no Second Son

But seriously Second Son is pretty good, looks very nice and is pretty easy to pick up. Never played Child of Light so I'm pretty happy
Sony is two for two with retail game offered on PS plus. As expected, the people moaning for that are now moaning about the type of AAA they got!

At minimum, it sets a good precedent to get a retail game every month, along with an indie. Knack next month!

At this stage, I'd applaud if the whole thing was a reasonably elaborate hoax, one deal and two comments into your HUKD career

You didn't scroll along to the right to see the other games

No one else happened to see this?

i don't want to argue but think you're missing out on an awesome experience. Reviewers unanimously peg Second Son at a minimum of 87/100. I think we can consider that to be 'widely regarded' enough....all praising the cool story and deep mechanics, and most notably reducing the overall score for lacklustre side quests.
Second son awesome... years ago! unless you've been in a 3 year coma and missed the chance to play this back in 2014/2015!! Utter jack **** for the increase in sub

Me too but infamous is a superb game, happy for anyone who's not played it yet having the chance for 'free'!
As a legacy PS3 owner (lol), hoping for atleast ones decent game there or on the Vita.


Thanks for posting OP
As someone not owning or having played either, September looks like a brilliant month on PS Plus!

There's been hoaxes before, and there's also been leaks via premature adverts before. And yeah, I'm some Random Internet Dude. But for what it's worth, this is an advert that appeared on my Facebook feed. It's real, my only concern is that it doesn't explictly state that it's the PS Plus games for September, but I checked they've not been given away before and they're not on sale, so it certainly looks like they'll be the ones. Guess we'll both find out at 16.30 tomorrow!

Well worth the increase in PSN subscription. VFM
Child of light is a fantastic game.
"Free"
Amazing! Wanted these games too and was going to buy them recently and glad I didn't now. Amazing value i think.

You're the second person to mention an increase in subscription. Could you elaborate please? I haven't heard of this and after a quick check on the PSN store the subscription seems the same RRP (£39.99 for 12 months)
So from this month they decide to increase the ps plus rates and also decided to give us poor games. Way to go Sony.

Description

From 00:01 BST on 31 August 2017, we will amend the price of PlayStation®Plus membership.

Any recurring fees payable after that date will be charged at £49.99 per annum.

Aren't we meant to be getting an update with backwards compatibility as well? Either recognizing retro discs or a database with additional titles each month, to sweeten the pie?

Raising the price to £50 a year for this shite is a piss take!
Sony need to provide more!
Played and completed both, wasn't interested by either of the games last month either... Two months of nothing for me. Great stuff.
