Honestly at this point nobody should be buying the $15 games as they are likely to be free eventually. I am not sure how this free games every month thing is a good thing for developers.

So I am kind of n00by when it comes to this. I know people have said for the free games just hit purchase and it is there for you to DL whenever you want...is this correct? There are a lot of free games that I missed on the PS3 because my HDD is full ATM.

Yeah, pretty sure it works that way. it will then show up as "purchased" and you can re-download whenever you want as long as you have PS+.

Purely trolling (http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/06/...nts-and-deals/)

this is the second event this month hosted by Gamestop. Makes one wonder....

If sales are hurting, why not include free stuff (controllers, games, kinect ) guess we really will know if the new sku made a diff come mid-july.

Now for important news:

Wouldn't that depend on how much Sony pays them for each person that downloads it?

Possibly but given the price of Plus it cannot be a significant amount. Not without Plus being a money loser. Simply too many games available over three systems.

There was an article I read at some point that said Sony works with the devs either with money or some other deal. I'm assuming cheap or free advertising/publishing/hosting on the other. I'm also assuming big titles like Dead Space are gimmes when sales dry up hoping to spark DLC revenue where indies get exposure where people would otherwise pass.

Yea just go to either the website, the mobile app, or the store via console and click download/buy. You can even cancel the download or push it via mobile/web. So long as you "purchased" the freebie its marked on your list as long as your a plus subscriber.

So what's up with this game called "No Man's Sky" I was reading about today? Apparently it will be PS4 exclusive or at least initially on the PS4. It looks like it could be interesting.

It has an infinite universe and the game can generate highly complex worlds itself. Without being programmed in ahead of time.

This site had some info about it.

Procedural based worlds, no two players start on the same planet, as stated during their E3 presser (Sony's). PS4 is the debut system, though the dev isn't calling it an exclusive. Most of what I've seen that game focuses on exploration. Definitely a title worth keeping an eye on.

I never went back to watch the E3 coverage since the stream crapped out on me a few minutes after it started on my PS4. And it never started streaming again.

Think Minecraft on a universal scale. Each new planet is dumped into an online universe. This could be good or bad depending on how it goes. I could imagine some players showing up to take over new planets long before you get built up if they are allowed to.

Dead Space 3 (and the entire series really) was one of my favorite late night games to play. Only concern I have with the Digital freebies is that they do not coalesce with the disc based saves. At least with the PS Plus save game sync, it seems to treat them as separate games completely.

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

This new system update makes it lightening fast from standby, if I have my TV and AVR on, and turn on the PS4 from the beep to the user selection screen is tops maybe 5 seconds, very nice.

Remember this for next year.

Don't ever trust Sony's provided coverage of pressers. The PS4 unveil and several E3s have had near instant crashes for me. This year I watched E3 on my PS4, Live, using the IGN app for PS4. No issues save for the occasional stutter. For some reason Sony partners with companies that just buckle under the load.

All of it failed for me. The only stream I could get running was the IGN website. Sad thing is that they used Ustream I think which ought to have decent load capability but completely sucked. Because of all that I completely missed Bloodborne until I read about it after.

You can make the purchase regardless and just play when you get one. As long as your on Plus that is.
