I preffer the months were they offer a bunch of indie games instead of the ones with just a few AAA titles (that most of the time I did not end up liking/have already played).

Just three months of Avengers is pretty crap. Clearly just trying to get a bunch of people to give it a go and then hope a lot buy it afterwards which they probably won’t given the game isn’t exactly great.

Honestly, the time has come to just put the game on PS+ and Gamepass indefinitely and hope that saves the game.

Hopefully Sony didn't have to pay too much for The Avengers after they already paid for that skin and other ingame junk

Not bad. Avengers has a short window. I wonder if it'll show up on game pass too in order to try and boost the player base.

Avengers is just the right price here - if its the PS5 version I'll be really tempted. I don't know if I'll hold off for the inevitable Gamepass release and play the better version. Depends how quiet the next few months are.

Borderlands gets a rough deal from people. The dialogue isn't as good as 2, but the gunplay is fantastic. Wish it had been a better overall product, but you can't go wrong if you already subscribe. Definitely give it a go in co-op if you can.

And as I recall, this was one of the ones that were better on PlayStation.

Game Pass gets Outriders, PS Now gets Avengers.

There's supposed to be a few more SE titles coming to GP soon. We'll probably get Avengers as well.

I'd probably never pay for it, but I'll try out the campaign should it ever be offered on GP. Though I will sneak a peak at how it streams on PSNow.

I couldn't make it through the campaign. Bought it full price on PS4 and dropped it within a week. So much potential down the drain.

Square loading up on that subscription money from everybody.

Hopefully it's at least the PS5 upgrade and not just the PS4 version. (Would it be the 1st Ps5 game on now?)

First PS5 games on PS Now I think? Hopefully the PS5 versions are available for download even if it's probably going to be the PS4 versions that are used for streaming.

Only 3 new games? This is a joke right?
There have been many months with only 3 games, why are you so surprised? These are some high profile 3rd party games so probably that's the reason. There aren't that many subscribers to psnow so Sony is investing accordingly.

Anyway, a nice selection of games.

I guess Sony isn't going to match that MLB on Gamepass offer. I don't understand why though. I know people say well MLB only sells over 1 million. Gamstat says its more like 2 million but lets just say 1 million for the sake of argument. So if 50% or half a million people go to Xbox and sign up for Gamepass they probably won't unsubscribe so that's half a million people that are now a lot less likely to spend money on Games for PS4 or PS5.

That doesnt even include the media attention that the MLB Gamepass deal got and all those MLB the Show fans that will now recommend Gamepass to all their friends and family in the future.

Only because Sony has been just putting the PS5 games on PS+, which you own if you have Now. Bugsnax, Destruction All-Stars, Control Next-gen Edition, Oddworld Soulstorm, Maquette.

I wonder if Outriders is also a short deal on Game Pass.

The Long Dark is probably the most interesting of the three for me. Every time I wanna subscribe to Now, they kind of lose me. :(
