Next month’s Playstation Plus offering is awful, lets just get that out there already. It’s two games that have been offered before on previous generation consoles, and is just something the fans don’t want. They want realistic AAA options, and by realistic we all know a first party game like Bloodborne won’t happen yet or third party like The Witcher 3 won’t happen. What about Infamous: Second Son? Or The Last Of Us: Remastered? Those are realistic options that Sony won’t have to go through third parties for permission.
Here are the offerings for October, and as you can see Games With Gold is offering the fantastic Walking Dead Season One to ALL Xbox players. This is the first time that The Walking Dead has ever been offered by either MS or Sony. Then you had the other fantastic GWD offerings this year like Rayman Legends, Assassin’s Creed IV, and Tomb Raider all on the Xbox One. Even Playstation Plus’s PS3 offerings have taken a major downturn from what used to be offered. Games like Far Cry 3, Assassin’s Creed III, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, and Borderlands 2 for example were offered by the service less than a year before they released!
Now Sony’s offerings are really lacking, and as one of “The Players” I feel it’s not the fantastic service it once was when it was an optional premium subscription. Microsoft have a lot of great Games With Gold games lined up for both XB360 and XBOne owners to end off the year, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we got a launch title like Ryse or Dead Rising 3 next for GWG XB1 owners.
Sony really needs to invest in a good offering for us players next month with a lacking first party line up in November/December, now would be the best time to give back to the PP subscribers with a huge first party title to end off the year or they could negotiate with third parties to offer a big PS4 game to the service.
This isn’t an article saying Sony sucks, or being negative. I just feel that due to what they have offered in the past that they should really try to make one of the next months a huge months for you the players of Playstation.
