Worried about coughing up about cash because of new consoles and new games when the PS5 launches this November? With the introduction of the PlayStation Plus collection, Sony relieves the users of the PS Plus subscription.
When launched on PS5, those who signed up for Sony’s online service will receive free downloads for 18 top PlayStation 4 titles.
And there are some real classics in there. Sony showed the following games to be launched with the service:
God of War, Bloodborne, Monster Hunter, Final Fantasy XV, Fallout 4, Mortal Kombat X, Uncharted 4, ratchet and clink, days past until dawn, Detroit, Battlefield 1
Here is a trailer for the service:
The PlayStation Plus collection isn’t quite Sony’s answer to Microsoft’s ridiculously cheap Xbox Game Pass deal that makes the Xbox Series X so alluring – Sony has PlayStation Now for that.
But what it will offer is a way for those who choose to purchase Sony’s discless, digital-only PS5, a way to play those top-notch PS4 games when they don’t have the means to put their physical discs in the insert a new machine.
It’s not a systems seller in and of itself, but for those who missed any of the above titles during this generation of consoles, waking up on Christmas morning is a big bonus – and trickling into the inevitable drought months of the early launch as fresh PS5 titles.
