Plus Subscribers Can Get These Games For Free In March

Free is good.

If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you probably know all about the free games that become available during any given month. They're part of the Instant Game Collection and sometimes, some seriously awesome titles land in the hopper.

And for March, Sony has revealed all the upcoming free games for Plus members. PlayStation 4 owners will be able to snag Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition, an overhauled edition of the acclaimed PS3 action game that boasts "updated visuals and controls." PS3 owners get a much more exciting selection, though; check it out: Tomb Raider, Thomas Was Alone, and Lone Survivor: Director's Cut.

If you've got the Vita, you can look forward to Unit 13 and Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite, which is essentially just the PSP version, but now it's playable on the new handheld. If you haven't played Tomb Raider yet, you're seriously missing out, and Unit 13 is a solid effort for the Vita.

I checked this out yesterday, and I'm going be D/L'ing Tomb Raider, Lone Survivor, and maybe take another look at Thomas was alone(not sure if I 'd really like it or not).

I think I'll even D/L Unit 13 & keep it uninstalled on my old 60GB PS3(now a 750GB'er) just in case some odd, rich, unknown relative decides to leave a new Vita(or even used)in my mailbox....fingers crossed

It will be on your download list. No need to keep it on the 3. Not that it matters much with a 750 drive.

Tomb Raider and Monster hunter is getting my interest. I've played Dead Nation plenty, so I'm not sure if I can get excited for it. The rest, are nice extras to me.

Love you PS Plus. I feel like we're spoiled. Even if the games don't interest me, every month they're not exactly giving away third tier games. It's well known and talked about for the most part. I haven't complained yet.

I download every single offering from Plus. I'll give any game a try even if it's just once. Even if I delete it will remain in my download list for future reference. I have quite a backlog.

I wish I could turn Plus into a sexual robot and return the favor. Maybe 3 to 4 times a night.

Another great month for plus members. I really enjoyed Dead Nation, however, I kind of wish they just did a sequel instead of an upgrade though.

Totally recommend Lone Survivor. Its like the essence of Silent Hill that was pulled from the last two games sold as this little 2D survival horror title.

What's Lone Survivor? Besides a mark wahlburg movie.

Story about the only survivor of a squad sent in to do something. Not my kind of movie.

Its a 2D survival horror game with retro pixalart graphics. Story is I Am Legend like. Your the only human left in a world overun by mutant creatures. Very Silent Hill like in atmosphere.

I don't know why I never bought into PS+ before the PS4...it pays for itself in about 2 months. Games just seem better when they're free.

I hope Tomb Raider comes out before Second Son hits at the end of March.

Too bad the ps4 isn't getting the new updated tomb raider. I'd be more excited about that. As is I'll still be trying everything.

The TR:DE is definitely worth the $60 asking price (if you haven't played the game previously).

You've gone too far and asked for too much. TR:DR just came out buddy. Lol..

Seriously, I have always said that Sony should sanction a game ONLY available to Plus members. A true PSPlus Exclusive. I even went so far as to suggest a PlayStation Home Club that only Plus members can access. It would give Plus another Exclusive feel to it. Not that the games aren't enough because the definitely are.

I know it's technically too early, but really it is just an enhanced version of a game that's been out long enough to be free on plus. I have played it on pc and loved it enough that when I get my ps4 I'll pick up that version too.

Don't waste your time with Monster Hunter. Just pony up and get Toukiden for the Vita. It is more fun and less grindy.

Unit 13, sure why not. It will make for a quick playthrough. Perhaps a little quicker than December's Soul Sacrifice.

I hope Monster Hunter is a test run for future MH titles hitting the Vita. If it is downloaded by many then Capcom may be convinced to bring more.

Is U13 online only. Can't remember. I can also see Resistance Burning Skies coming to Plus soon. I wonder, will Sony run out of games to offer?

Really? Dead Nation?

As good as DN is, I'm kind of tired of having HD versions for my PS4.

I didn'y buy a PS4 to play old games.

On topic, it's a good month to be a PS3+PS+ gamer
