Sony letting PlayStation Plus members vote on which “free games” the service will add
This is pretty dope news, though not without its understandable caveats. Sony is going to let PS+ members vote on which games they get for free, at regular intervals throughout the year. However — it won’t be monthly. Double However, it will be from a list curated by Sony. Obviously.
PlayStation owners that subscribe to Sony’s PlayStation Plus service already receive more than 60 free games a year (as well as, you know, access to online multiplayer), but Sony is now giving users more choice about which games they get with a new feature named Vote to Play. This will let subscribers vote for a single game from a selection picked by Sony, with the title that receives the most votes automatically included in a “future monthly games line-up.” The feature will be available to both PS4 and PS3 owners, and although it won’t be a monthly occurrence, Sony says it will “take place at regular intervals throughout the year.” There’s no word on when the first vote will be, but it’s worth remembering that access to these free games stops as soon you stop paying for PlayStation Plus. If you really want a certain title, you might be better off buying it.
