Sony has released info regarding May’s Playstation Plus content, via their blog. If you have yet to try this service out, May looks like the month to take the plunge.

I have done an excellent job of using my game backlog as an excuse to avoid Playstation Plus, but now it’s time to bite that bullet and join the club.

Anyone else pumped for next month’s update?

Let us know what you think below.


  1. I was thinking about ditching my account, but there’s no way I can with that lineup (not to mention the last couple months’ worth of releases). Count me in for a renewal.

  2. At first I thought PS+ wasn’t for me… but holy crap they seem to be packing in more and more every month. I was playing Shift2 the other day that I got for free from them for April. The copious amount of free and heavily discounted games coupled with stuff like auto patching and cloud saves sure does make that $50/yr seem well worth it. I feel like I’ve got for bang for my buck with PS+ than I do with live… as it merely feels like I’m paying for online play.
