PS Plus vs. Xbox Games With Gold: Which Free Games Win March?
Sony has really kicked things up a notch with the PS Plus freebies over the past 12 months. Was it the collective weight of fans’ request for higher profile games or are we just enjoying a purple patch? We’re not entirely sure, but whatever the reasons, we’re reaping the rewards big time. In fact, March might just be its best month ever. October’s Metal Gear Solid V and January’s Deus Ex were impressive enough, but two of the console’s best exclusives has totally blown us away. Bloodborne, among the most highly reputed PS4 games, is free, as is the awesome remake of Ratchet and Clank. No matter your gaming preferences, you just can’t sleep on either of those two games. Dripping in an eerie atmosphere and challenging enough for any gamer, Bloodborne was an instant classic when it released back in 2015. Ratchet and Clank’s PS4 remake boasts excellent platforming gameplay, Pixar-quality visuals, and hilarious writing.
There’s another platforming experience for PS4 and PS3 owners in the form of Mighty No.9. Sure, repeated delays and gameplay that didn’t live up to the promise of a rebooted Mega Man-like were ultimately a big let down, but if you’ve ever been curious to play this controversial title from Keiji Inafune, now is your chance to pick it up for free. And if that wasn’t enough platforming action for you, PS3 owners can also download Legend of Kay, an adventure title reminiscent of the Jak and Daxter series, though not nearly as good.
Elsewhere, Vita owners can take advantage of Claire: Extended Cut, a pixelated horror adventure game; and Bombing Busters, a sort of Bomberman clone that isn’t great but should provide a fun distraction for a quick game on the go.
Unfortunately, there’s nothing new for PSVR owners this month.
