It seems that Sony fans are in for a treat this coming month
Over the past few months, Sony has provided fans with amazing indie titles across all its platforms via the Instant Game Collection model. During April,
4 owners got to download Never Alone; an amazing indie game with an emotional story. PS Vita owners were given the opportunity to download Killzone Mercenary.
However, as of now, Sony has only offered 2 triple A titles to its fans. The first one being NetherRealm Studios Injustice Gods Among Us followed by Infamous First Light. Could May see Sony fans getting another triple A title? A German PS Blog certainly thinks so.
According to a PS Blog based in Germany, Sony fans are in for a treat in the coming month, especially fans who enjoy platformers.
The blog lists six games that users will be able to download come next month. The reliability of this blog is obviously questioned. The six games that Sony fans will receive according to it are:
Rayman Legends (PS4/PS3)
Need For Speed Rivals (PS3)
Shovel Knight (PS4/PS3/PSVita)
Fruit Ninja (PSVita)
Asphalt Injection (PSVita)
The list does look pretty believable with the exception of Shovel Knight. Rayman Legends was already free on Games With Gold on Xbox One earlier this year. As far as Knack is concerned, it was an unsuccessful title according to Sony standards and would get a push in popularity if it is to become free.
Need For Speed Rivals is the most believable of the list due to it being free on Xbox One via EA Access as well as because of the fact that the game is pretty old now.
However, its hard to see Shovel Knight being offered for free. The game was highly anticipated and recently got released on the PS4. Firstly, it will anger fans who just purchased the game for 20 bucks. Moreover, it will discourage people from buying indie titles in the future.
Shovel Knight was one of the most acclaimed games last year, offering it for free will satisfy a lot of consumers but it will come at the cost of angering a lot of early buyers.
Though there is no official word on the list yet but it’ll be exciting to know what titles Sony fans will be getting in May of this year.
