This is probably the biggest month in PS+ history featuring two HUGE Sony first party titles. Bloodborne is a From Software epic with a huge difficulty curve. I have been close to clicking that buy button, but have been scared off by the game’s reputation. No excuses for me now. I loved the Ratchet & Clank reboot and platinumed it… So did Ceidz check his thoughts on it. I think my kids will enjoy the Legend of Kay. Mighty No. 9 is coming cross-buy to both PS4 and PS3, the game wasn’t received super well critically, but it’s free(Also where is the Vita version???). Eden enjoyed Claire as an old-school throwback (it also might be an easy platinum) and finally Bombing Busters, which is a Bomberman Clone that I thought was okay.
PlayStation also announced this month that it would be ceasing support for both the PS3 and Vita with PS+, starting March 2019. It definitely took them long enough to drop PS3 games from the service, but I will definitely miss the Vita titles. Currently Sony is stating there will only be two PS4 games given for free to subscribers from March 2019 and on, but I do think they might change that by giving us free PS VR games for free to push the hardware..
