We need GOOD games for plus freebies. The EU PSN always gets the good end of the plus deal.


Something i would suggest is resurrecting the "Classic" section of plus. If i remember right, plus at one time also offered free PS1 classics. Id like to see this expand to PS2 classics with some titles like GTA 3 and Primal. 

 

Primal is a very underrated game made by a sony first party studio. Its deserving of more recognition and acclaim and this could happen if it was offered on plus.

Yeah Agreed. USA sometimes gets the shaft... I understand that it all has to do with legalities but that doesnt mean that the USA team couldnt step it up to source killer games. Over all I love PS PLus just wish the free games were better. They sometimes tend to be old hat....

I'd like to see PSOne/PS2 classics, as well.  While I don't care for this week's release, I won't complain, as I've been pretty satisfied, overall, these past few months.  I'm still waiting for some JRPGs, though (an abundance of which were released to the prior two generations of PlayStation consoles, by the way..).

Like a lot of people are saying  I would like some old classic games, or maybe even some triple A titles like battlefield, but not just shooters

Usually a Big Budget game would be considered AAA. Some would probably say it has to also be highly rated.

 

Examples would probably be, Resistance, GT, GTA, God of War, Gears of War, Halo, Bioshock. Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, Killzone, Battlefield, Resident Evil, , Kingdom Hearts, Mario, Zelda, Borderlands, The Last of Us, Uncharted, Infamous, etc...
