He was a member of our team for over nine years, and worked as a designer on many of our titles, including Sonic Chronicles, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect 2 and 3, and most recently Anthem.

Lgndary Thoughts - PS Plus Lineup for August

I haven't written about an individual month’s PS Plus lineup in awhile, but the games for August is going to change that! Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

For those that haven't seen the news yet, here is the PS Plus lineup for next month:

  • Just Cause 3 - PS4
  • Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry - PS4
  • Super Motherload - PS3
  • Snakeball - PS3
  • Downwell - PS Vita
  • Level 22 - PS Vita

Wow, what a month. Just Cause 3 alone makes August far more exciting than anything PS Plus has offered in a long, long time. These are exactly the kind of games that Sony needs to be getting for their service. And while I have heard that there are performance issues with Just Cause, I don't particularly mind. This is what PS Plus should be for, playing games that one didn't play for one reason or another. I’m sure many didn't grab the game because of those issues, but now they can play it without having to pay for it separately. 

As for the other PS4 game, Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, I can’t say that I am as excited. It is a fairly old game, having released over 3 years ago, and it isn't really a full game either, as it was released as standalone DLC. Having said that, it is still a lot better than most of what we get with PS Plus. 

Unfortunately, there isn't much to be excited about after the PS4 games. Both Downwell, and Level 22 seem to be the usual small indie titles that we are used to, but I can’t say that this surprises me. And the same can also be said of the PS3 games, which also look really cheap. 

But honestly, I don’t really care that much about the PS3 and PS Vita games. In a thought last week, I talked about how PS Plus needs to change, and how the focus needs to be on PS4. For this week at least, Sony has done that. We can only hope that this is the start of a new trend, where we see great and exciting games a lot more often than we are used to. 

Now it is your turn to let me know what you think of next month’s PS Plus lineup! Be sure to vote in the survey, the results of which will be shared early next week, and don’t forget to leave a comment below!

Capcom reveals latest sales information for several titles

Capcom has released their latest sales figure for several of their top franchises, including Street Fighter and Monster Hunter. I have taken the relevant details and written them up below:

  • Resident Evil 5 - 9.5 million (7.2 from original, 2.3 from the Gold Edition)
  • Resident Evil 6 - 8 million (6.8 from original, 1.1 million from re-release)
  • Resident Evil 7 - 3.7 million
  • Street Fighter V - 1.7 million
