A new month, new year, and new free games have arrived for PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold Members. As usual, online access isn’t the only thing you can get out of Microsoft and Sony’s console-enhancing membership.
Four free games are available in January for Xbox One/360, and thanks to a multi-game “Collection” that’s included, the same number are available for PS4. And in case you were wondering, there’s still time to grab December’s freebies while they’re available.
If you’re not yet a subscriber, don’t miss your chance to save some cash on a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live membership through CDKeys.com:
PS Plus Free Games
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection | Available 7th January – 5th February
Goat Simulator | Available 7th January – 5th February
If you’re not a PlayStation Plus member yet, you’re not only missing out on online play, you’re also missing out on free games like the ones above every month. Here’s exactly what a PS Plus membership gets you:
- Online Play: If you’re not playing online, you’re not getting the most out of your PlayStation experience and you’re missing out on a lot of gaming fun!
- Cloud Storage: Most titles these days need at least 50GB of hard drive space. This means that after about 10 games or so, your PS4 hard drive is full. Cloud storage allows you to download unlimited games and have access to everything on your system anywhere you go.
- Free Games: Who doesn’t like free stuff? All the free games offered each month are yours to download and play 24/7 as long as your subscription is active.
