PlayStation Plus gets Red Dead Redemption and more

Red Dead Redemption is this month's PlayStation Game of the Month. PS3 fans have already been treated with Borderlands, which will tomorrow be replaced by Rockstar's epic open world adventure and will be available until October 2.

Also, from September 12, you can download the excellent Scott Pilgrim vs. The World along with Double Dragon Neon, both of which will be available until December 4.

Finally, the next game in the PlayStation Plus Presents indie initiative is the excellent looking title, Machinarium, which is available from 5th September until 23rd October. 

If you're not yet a Plus subscriber then take note that from 5th to 19th September a 365 day subscription is on sale at 25% off.

I've been incredibly impressed by PSP so far, they really are winning me over.

I'm going to stop buying games & just wait for them to be given away with PS+. It's a great idea for folks new to PS3, but I've already bought all these titles they're giving away.

Machinarium looks really good. Had a little try of the browser version demo when I first found out it was to be included in plus. Good little point and click puzzler.

another fantastic title added to plus, red dead is brilliant and the single player DLC undead nightmare is on offer tomorrow 3.99 i believe, there really is no reason not to get, also @jaysfnb just trade in the physical games you get already own if they come up on plus

Come on microsoft, we need something like PS+ for the 360!!

Maybe they will with the next gen console and Xbox Live. I can't see them doing anything now, they already are getting £40 a year from all Live Gold members so why offer free games. It will be interesting to see if PS+ continues in it's current format when the PS4 is released, or if it will get reworked again. The big question is what would they offer as free games, just PSN titles? I can't see many developers wanting to offer launch titles for free can you? And what happens to those who stick with PS3 for a year longer, do they get left behind? So many questions!

Well, considering Plus for Vita isn't rolling out for at least another month, it's probably safe to assume that when the PS4 comes along that Plus won't be used for it initially. Probably they'll wait six months and start it up from there... alternatively, having something like the Plus instant game collection available at the console's launch would be a massive selling point. Something to consider at least. Not much danger of PS3 users being sidelined though, not so long as new titles to potentially add to the service are being released on the current console, which they will be for quite a while yet.

I basically got PS+ so I could get Dead Space 2 and Darksiders. I have RDR, but I never got in to it before my nephew borrowed it and never returned it. I'm going to give it a go again and see if I can get stuck in to it.

That was the problem with RDR, the start of the game is actually quite boring and a bit of a chore to get through, but once you get past that the game really starts to get going and is actually very good.

really wish that Microsoft had used an idea like this. It keeps its customers loyal and could even make themselves more money by the users buying dlc for their free games. Hopefully they start something up soon because their sales and specials section doesn't quite cut it for me compaired to ps+
