Why do we keep getting free Plus games that have been 75% off before???

12 replies 530 views Edited Dec 31, 2012

Why would PS give us a free game that was on sale for 75% off a few months ago?  That is the 3rd game that I have already bought with a PS+ discount to come out in the past 2 months.  (SF4, NBAJOFE and PAYDAY; The Heist).  So this is the 4th week in a row there is nothing for me and for more than 50% of people.  

 

IMO Devil My Cry 4 would have made sense since DmC comes out in 2 weeks.  Borderlands is the only game given out that makes any since.  The rest are games that 95% of people have or dont want.

It’s a way to make as much money as they can before putting on plus to be free.

Sound Shapes in on sale this week for approximately 50% off. That's good news, at least.

The holiday sales series tell me what is the expected content in 2013
Battman arkham city
Papo &yo
Im Alive
unfinished swan
bolt storm

All these games are expected to be free. especially, starting from June 2013 and replacing infamous 2 with new unknown title (hope it to be MAG or better like Uncharted 2)

I think you actually know the answer to this question, and it makes sense if you think about AAA publishers. There are less than a dozen publishers in gaming, aside from the console owners. How many would be willing to give away a game for Free? What's in it for them? DLC, so you put your game on PS+ to get money, DLC or 75% get it while it's hot sale. Those publishers that are willing to put it on sale are the ones that are likely to give it away free. Think about Call of Duty, it's a rare day when it goes on sale or drops MSRP at retail, what do you put the odds of seeing that as the game of the month on PS+?

who said the studios are giving the games away for free . maybe sony pays them something from all those 50$ subcription they use a part of that money to make deals.

as for the discount yea when you see a discount its to get as many sales as possible before giving it away 

i just know pinball arcade is comming i bought it at 50% , now its already free on EU plus for january 

my theory don't buy anything anymore , got burnt too many time 

for ex: borderlands , marvel pinball , scott pilgrim , i all bought these games when i was a psplus noob just to get em free months later

i don't have a pc i use ps3 browser
