ps plus vs games with gold

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 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: Save your progress on one system, and then continue your game on a different one! Cloud storage allows you to save up to 100GB of game save data that you can access on-the-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.
