This is a thread for PS+ (PS Plus) members

Huh, that’s four games arriving to PS++ that I’ve bought. It’s tempting to just subscribe, play whatever wins that lottery, and stop purchasing for myself. What holds me back is the feeling that I’m not helping developers of the stuff I really enjoy make more.

Going deeper, I worry subscription services are akin to private equity firms, which will buy companies only to leverage them for debt, sell off profitable chunks, and escape the ruins. I.e., not actually good for anyone in the industry.

Pretty nice month. Outriders, Scarlet Nexus, and Ace Combat 7 are all pretty cool games, so check those out if you haven’t already. I’m interested in The Forgotten City and The Quarry, but I own a lot of the others. Classic lineup is great as well.

Horizon Forbidden West showing up exactly one year after release is interesting, and I wonder if that’s what they’ll target for their first-party stuff. Would seem to be a reasonable middle ground between Xbox’s day-1 availability and their previous focus on protecting retail purchases. I enjoyed the first game, so will definitely check this one out at some point.

Besides that, a bunch of stuff that was previously on Game Pass and that I already played my fill of there, but good value for people who only have one or the other service.

Well I can’t complain about that lineup. I’m stoked about The Quarry as I would have bought it at some point.

I think this is just a one time thing. They’re releasing PSVR2 with a Horizon game at the same time, and have DLC coming in a couple months.

We still haven’t seen Sackboy or Knack 2 yet, or Ratchet & Clank Newgame.

Oh, wow! When I read that list I assumed it was the original Horizon game. That’s awesome!

I’m also kinda excited about Borderlands 3. Before I got my PS5, that was one of the last physical PS4 games I owned. I played a couple of hours, but gave up because the performance was atrocious. I wouldn’t have bought it again, but will play through it if it’s on Plus.

Apparently this is a cult classic that I should be checking out.

I just hope I can take the graphics. PS1 era graphics were hard for me to stomach back in that era. I much preferred PC or N64 graphics at the time. Hopefully I can stomach them better in 2023.

Don’t buy Battlefield 2042 if you’ve been thinking about it and own a PS5.

Ah, good, I knew my refusal to buy it for my son (I didn’t like it, and I knew he’d play for three hours and be back to COD) would pay off eventually. I just assumed it’d be coming to Game Pass.

Speaking of Game Pass, kind of crazy to see a Microsoft game as part of the PS Plus lineup. :)

It’s been on game pass since Nov 22nd. All three of those games have been on game pass a long time. I think Code Vein just left recently.

You’re aware like twice as many people have PS Plus as have GamePass, right?

Who me? Sure.

I was just telling Editer since he seemed to still be waiting for Battlefield to hit game pass maybe.

Ah, thanks, @Rock8man … Show’s how interested I am in BF2042. :)

My favorite BF game remains BF1942. #getoffmylawn

Me, too, by far. Was in a small league for a while playing weekly matches. Like soccer, but with guns!

Leaving ++ soon:

  • Danger Zone
  • Dungeons 2
  • Ghost of a Tale
  • Monster Supercross 5
  • Override 2
  • Vanishing of Ethan Carter
  • Velocibox
  • Victor Vran
  • WWE 2k

No must plays IMO. Ethan Carter sure was pretty with some interesting puzzles. Velocibox is worth trying for a few minutes. I guess I could say it’s like Super Hexagon, but not really.

Another great week of additions.


  • Dragonball Z Kakorot
  • Final Fantasy Type 0
  • Ghostwire Tokyo
  • Haven
  • Immortals Fenyx
  • Life is Strange 2
  • Life is Strange True Colours
  • Neo The World Ends with You
    This is a sequel! I always thought it was just a remaster edition.
  • Rage 2
  • Rainbow Six Extraction
  • Street Fighter 5 Champion Edition (DLC)
  • Tchia
  • Uncharted 4 & Lost Legacy (PS5)
  • Untitled Goose Game


  • Ape Academy 2
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Syphon Filter Dark Mirror

I take it as a good sign that I’ve already played six of the new arrivals yet still want to play three of what remain. That’s a way better ratio than most of what’s existing on the service. Keep up the good curation, Sony.

Getting good reviews.

I’m going to bring my PS4 out of mothballs for this.

Oh, wow, Tchia looks adorable.

Agreed! Eager to play it, both alone and together with my kids. I’d been turned off by its apparent Breath of the Wild similarity, but that Polygon review reassured me. I’m now eager to try it tomorrow. I don’t know what time PS Plus games unlock, but it’s something I’m now excited for.
